Lee Jun Ki and Seo Ye Ji confirmed for tvN drama "Lawless Lawyer"

Lee Jun Ki and Seo Ye Ji have confirmed they will be appearing in tvN’s “Lawless Lawyer”, which is slated to begin airing in May. Lee Jun Ki is set to play Bong Sang Pil, who used to be a member of a gang before becoming a lawyer. He treats law books like kitchen appliance manuals, and his preferred method of resolving a situation includes fists rather than the law. Seo Ye Ji will be portraying Ha Jae Yi who lived a self-directed life since she was a kindergartener. She becomes a great lawyer who fights for justice but ends up getting demoted after attacking a judge. She meets lawyer Bong Sang Pil following her demotion and they get tied up with each other.

“Lawless Lawyer” will be the story of Bong Sang Pil going against an absolute power in the court of law to avenge his mother. It will be a legal action thriller that follows a man who has wanted nothing but to get revenge, and the growth he goes through as he seeks justice. The script will be written by Yoon Hyun Ho, who has worked on the drama “Remember” and films “I am a Father” and “Confidential Assignment,” and the project will be helmed by producing director (PD) Kim Jin Min, who was worked on other dramas like “Time Between Dog and Wolf,” “Pride and Prejudice,” and “Marriage Contract.”

“Lawless Lawyer” is set to begin airing in May after “Live,” the follow-up to tvN’s current weekend drama “Hwayugi.”

Ugh at another legal drama, but I like both leads so I'll be checking this out. Hopefully it will be more action revenge and less boring courtroom scenes.

Inside CL’s four-year struggle to make it big(ger) in America

For a time, the Korean pop phenom’s U.S. crossover felt imminent. So what is standing in her way?
By Owen Myers

In November, K-pop’s self-proclaimed “baddest female” seemed to be at breaking point. The Korean pop phenomenon known as CL was a centerpiece guest on “Livin’ The Double Life,” a Seoul-based TV show that promises intimate insight into the lives of the country’s best-known personalities. Live interview elements were interspersed with pre-recorded segments that generally veered towards light, enjoyable fluff: CL bonding with L.A. teens over In-N-Out burgers, or adorably failing to master the “fireman spin” at a pole-dancing class. But in one particularly vulnerable part, when she talked about her four-year struggle to succeed in America, her eyes filled with tears. “I didn't even know that it was hard,” she said, her voice cracking. “Since [a K-pop artist crossing over] never happened before, there's no path I can follow. People want to help but they don't know how to help.”

💎 5hinee forever 💎: shinee successfully finish their fourth consecutive dome tour

okay. a disclaimer: this post is really brief. condensed. to the point. it's probably the most difficult one i've ever had to make on here. as said above: shinee finished up their fourth consecutive dome tour on tuesday, february 27th. there were four total concerts: two held at kyocera dome between february 17th - 18th, and a final two held at tokyo dome between february 26th - 27th. it was their fourth time performing at tokyo dome and their third performing at kyocera. the concerts were successful and pretty much entirely sold out but..... very emotional and overall seemed to be difficult for the members (despite them being able to loosen up during some of the more uptempo performances) which is another reason why i'm keeping this brief. i'm only going to include fancams of the performances of their two new tracks, both which will be featured on their best of (/ greatest hits) album to be released in japan on april 18th. the concerts acted as a culmination of their activities in japan up until this point, a memorialization of jonghyun and way for okmt to stress that shinee will forever be five.

Wanna One’s Yoon Ji Sung Shares Warm Advice For People Worried About Being Late Bloomers

Wanna One’s Yoon Ji Sung recently opened up about his own experiences as a trainee to offer advice to people who are worried that they are getting a late start in life.

The opening show of global youth forum “MBN Y Forum 2018” was held on February 28. Guest appearances were made by soccer commentator Cha Bum Geun, actress Lee Yoo Ri, Wanna One’s Park Woo Jin, Yoon Ji Sung, Ha Sung Woon, and Hwang Min Hyun, as well as PyeongChang Winter Olympics gold medalists Choi Min Jung, Lee Seung Hoon, and Lim Hyo Jun.

During the event, Yoon Ji Sung shared his own life story as he said, “I think this is something that everyone in their early to mid-twenties can relate to. I debuted at a relatively late age. Although I was personally okay with the waiting that I had to do, what started to take a toll on me was when my family would gather for the holidays and everyone would be worrying about me and asking me, ‘So when are we going to see you on TV?'”
