Le Je Hoon Talks About His Love Of Cinema And Losing Himself In His Acting

-“If you take movies out of the equation, there’s nothing special about me as a person. I don’t have any hobbies or special talents. I love watching movies and talking about movies so much that I don’t think of doing anything else.”

-“Even when I’m having a hard time with my acting, I watch movies,” he continued. “Isn’t it amazing how even after all this time, even with cinema’s long history, people are still coming up with new and creative stories?”

-“I enjoy living as a character inside a story,” he explained. “I believe that there is both good and evil within Lee Je Hoon.” (He sees himself as a blank piece of paper for the directors to draw upon).

Gov't raids Shincheonji headquarters & they donate W12 billion to fight coronavirus

The government conducted an administrative investigation search of the headquarters of the Shincheonji Church of Jesus, linked to most COVID-19 infections here, to secure more precise lists of its followers and facilities nationwide, officials said Thursday.

The investigation was started amid a growing controversy over the secretive sect's uncooperative attitude toward the government's desperate efforts to track down people exposed to the new coronavirus and stop its rapid spread.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) reported 322 new cases as of 9 p.m. Thursday, bringing the nation's total number of infections to 6,088. On Wednesday, it detected 438 additional cases.

"Road to Kingdom" Lineup Reportedly Includes The Boyz, Golden Child, Verivery, ONF and TOO

Mnet is reportedly getting ready to film the boy group spin-off of “Queendom” titled “Road to Kingdom” (literal title)! On March 5, Joy News 24 cited several industry sources to report that “Road to Kingdom” will have its first recording in the third week of March. According to the report, boy groups including ONF, Golden Child, The Boyz, VERIVERY, and TOO (brave, the group is Mnet's still undebuted boygroup) are in talks to compete on the show.

A source from Mnet shared to Newsen, “The first recording for ‘Road to Kingdom’ will take place sometime in March. Because the show involves the groups meeting each other for the first time during the first recording, we cannot reveal the lineup.”

“Queendom,” which aired its first season last fall, featured a star-studded lineup of girl groups facing off against one another in various competitions before culminating in a fierce “comeback battle.” In “Road to Kingdom,” several boy groups will go up against each other and release music on streaming sites simultaneously. Based on Joy News 24’s report, the winning group of “Road to Kingdom” gets the opportunity to join “Kingdom,” Mnet’s next survival program scheduled for the second half of the year.

Joy News 24 reports that while premiere date of “Road to Kingdom” has yet to be decided due to the coronavirus situation, the show is expected to begin within the first half of the year.

Japan essentially bans travelers from South Korea by announcing a two week quarantine for arrivals

Japan decided Thursday to tighten entry restrictions on arrivals from South Korea and China amid concerns over the spread of the new coronavirus.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced that those flying in from the two virus-hit neighboring countries will be quarantined for two weeks.

Tokyo's decision is an expansion of its entry restriction for South Korea, as the previous measure had applied to people who have visited the South's two southeastern regions -- Daegu city and North Gyeongsang Province -- where the bulk of COVID-19 cases have been reported.
