Teasers for "Love Alert"

Based on the popular web novel of the same name, “Love Alert” will tell the story of a fake relationship between an A-list actress and a famous doctor. Yoon Eun Hye will star as the highly successful actress and hopeless romantic Yoon Yoo Jung, while Chun Jung Myung will play Dr. Cha Woo Hyun, a famous dermatologist who is incredibly popular with women but uninterested in dating. When events threaten to expose personal secrets, the two end up agreeing to be in a contract relationship in order to protect their secrets.

Han Go Eun will play Han Jae Kyung, the CEO of Yoon Yoo Jung’s agency. Her character is a professional who has been taking care of both Yoon Yoo Jung’s career and private life since the beginning. She practically sacrificed herself like a sister in order for Yoon Yoo Jung to be a star. Joo Woo Jae plays Sung Hoon, Yoon Yoo Jung’s close friend and fellow actor. Sung Hoon offers to step in as Yoon Yoo Jung’s fake boyfriend instead of Cha Woo Hyun. Block B's P.O will be playing the role of Yoon Yoo Joon, Yoon Yoo Jung’s lively and immature younger brother who believes in acting on his every impulse.

"Love Alert" premieres Wednesday, October 31 on MBN.

John Cameron Mitchell shares opinion on Wanna One's use of the Hedwig And The Angry Inch imagery

Instagram description: Thoughts on Kpop band @wannaone.official’s use of #hedwigandtheangryinch/Platonist/Taoist imagery as well as @stephentrask’s song title #theoriginoflove. An ancient myth is certainly fair game to use as a metaphor for a band and its caring fans coming together but I’m sad to think that their managers felt the need to borrow so flagrantly from Hedwig without attribution and flatten the myth (much like my face in this video).

The East Light’s Lee Seok Cheol And Lee Seung Hyun Speak Further On Abuse

The interview was held on October 26 after the brothers provided testimony to the police for their case against CEO Kim Chang Hwan of Media Line Entertainment and producer Moon Young Il. Previously, on October 22, they filed an official complaint against producer Moon for assault and against CEO Kim for aiding and abetting.

During the interview with “Night of Real Entertainment,” Lee Seok Cheol said, when asked about CEO Kim Chang Hwan’s rebuttal interview, “It made me think that he didn’t think of us like a father would, but rather thought of us as a commercial product. Any trust I had in him came crashing down.”

‘This is a big boy’s game now’: DramaFever is a casualty of the big-money OTT war

The 320 Studios space in Manhattan’s Garment District was rocking the night of Oct. 10, 2013. About 150 people had gathered at the venue for a premiere screening of “Heirs,” a new Korean soap opera. The show was a major milestone for DramaFever, a subscription video streaming service focused on Korean dramas, as it was the company’s first “original series” thanks to a co-production deal with Korean studio Hwa & Dam Pictures.

This called for a party — and a party it was, with an open bar, prizes ranging from branded T-shirts to a Google Chromecast, and the crowd cheering loudly throughout the pilot episode. DramaFever was riding high; with consumer usage of streaming services on the rise, the company had raised $6 million in a Series B round just a year earlier to bring its total backing to $7.5 million at the time.

Five years later, those passionate fans of Korean dramas still exist, but DramaFever, which became the biggest provider of such programming with 13,000 episodes and operations across 12 countries, is no more. On Tuesday, Warner Bros., which acquired DramaFever in 2016, announced it was shutting down the service effective immediately. In a widely circulated press statement, the studio said it was shutting the service down due to “business reasons” and “in light of the rapidly changing marketplace for K-drama content, a staple of the service’s programming.” (Warner Bros. declined to provide additional comment for this story.)

So it's like dancing program meets dating show? Interesting that Euijin is the only idol in this and not from a super well known group too.
