Hara shares her side of the story on assault incident with boyfriend



Following a news outlet’s interview with Goo Hara’s boyfriend, Dispatch has now revealed Goo Hara’s side of the story with an exclusive interview.

Dispatch confirmed the cause of the fight with messages exchanged between Goo Hara and her boyfriend “C,” messages between C and Goo Hara’s housemate “B,” and the phone call between C and Goo Hara’s manager.

On September 10, Goo Hara ate lunch with her manager and “A,” a man who works in the industry. However, she told her boyfriend C that she was only eating with her manager. Through a phone call with her manager, C found out that A was also present at lunch and got angry at Goo Hara for lying. Goo Hara went to the hair salon that C works at on September 12 to explain herself, but C told her to just go home.

Kim Ji Suk, Jun So Min and Lee Sang Yeob confirmed for tvN drama


“Top Star Yoo Baek” will tell the story of a former idol and A-list actor who is banished to a remote island after causing some major trouble. The drama will follow Yoo Baek as he adapts to his new surroundings and eventually strikes up a romance with Oh Kang Soon, a woman who seems to have nothing in common with him.

Kim Ji Suk will be playing the role of narcissistic top star Yoo Baek. Though he has a confident personality and outstanding good looks, he is distrustful of people because of trauma he experienced at a young age. An idol-actor, he is successful in both singing and acting, earning the nickname of “Nation’s Melo Man.”

Jun So Min will be playing the role of Oh Kang Soon, a hardworking young woman who doesn’t care about anything aside from her studies, her work as a diver, or the supermarket she runs. Unlike the worldly and sophisticated Yoo Baek, Oh Kang Soon barely even knows how to use a cell phone.

Lee Sang Yeob will play the role of Choi Ma Dol, who is described as “the Jack Sparrow of ships.” Choi Ma Dol is the youngest person to become a captain. He’s an optimistic, friendly, and fun character, but is also strong-headed and charismatic.

“Top Star Yoo Baek” will be airing in November in tvN's new Friday drama slot after the conclusion of "Big Forest".

I'm so here for this, I really like all three of these actors and I'm excited for Kim Ji Suk to get another lead role after loving him in 20th Century Boy and Girl.

The Return of Superman Triplets update




It’s been a while since I’ve done a TRoS update post, so let’s see what the triplets are up to! Song Daehan, Song Minguk, and Song Manse are fraternal triplets and the sons of actor Song Ilkook and his wife Jung Seungyeon, a high court judge (I know, how badass!). All together their names translate to “Long Live the Republic of Korea”. The triplets started the show when they were 27 months old, in the summer of 2014. They stayed on until February of 2016, just a month shy of their 4th birthday. They were a really popular family, pretty much from their first episodes.

KBS YT also put out special triplets' episodes. Basically, it's full episodes made up of their clips alone. You can find the playlist here.

Yunjin Kim talks about new drama and returning to Korean entertainment



Korean-born American actress Yunjin Kim has returned to the small screen in her motherland, breaking a 19-year absence.

As if to make up for the long hiatus -- although she has been appearing in Korean films -- she's chosen a role that, she hopes, will leave a lasting impression on Korean television viewers.

The upcoming SBS series, "Ms. Ma, Goddess of Revenge," is loosely based on Miss Marple, a fictional amateur detective in Agatha Christie's novels. With shrewd intelligence and a remarkable ability to latch onto seemingly trivial things to solve a mystery, the character is one of the most beloved characters of the British crime writer.

I was pleasantly surprised by the lack of koreaboos and by how people from different backgrounds were picked. The girl from Nepal is the cutest and most charming! She's never seen the sea!!! (At least) 3 of them had never been abroad before!
