"Fool"s Love" was not a perfect drama. Some of the plots twists were hard to believe but all in all it was a perfectly heartwarming tale of tolerance and compassion.
Spoiler alert: read no further if you haven"t seen this drama.
Some developments were difficult to believe unless you are a diehard drama fan. Did Im Seulong"s character Byun Kang Chul really not know he had fallen for Kang Ho Kyung, played by Lee Soo Kyung, rather than Kang Ho Gu, played by Choi Woo Sik? And did anyone believe Do Do Hee, played by Uee, could continue her swimming career after having a baby?

It"s definite. Ha Ji Won"s latest leading man will not be Rain. Instead she will pair up with Lee Jin Wook for the upcoming drama "The Time I Loved You, 7,000 days."
It has been a year since Ha Ji Won appeared in "Empress Ki" with co-stars Joo Jin Mo and Ji Chang Wook. The role earned her three MBC drama awards and nominations at the Baeksang Arts, APAN and 7th Korea Drama Awards. After that she appeared in the film "Chronicle of a Blood Merchant," a screen adaption of a bestselling Chinese novel.
During filming, Suzy admitted that she does read negative comments online. She said, "I know I"m going to get hurt, but I look at all the negative comments. During my "Dream High" days, there was a lot of talk about my acting skills. I was criticized a lot back then. That"s why I was traumatized and also hurt."
She went on, "I monitor myself on all the shows I appear on. I know that I shouldn"t, but I think I just end up looking everything up." Actress Seo Woo also commented, "There was a time I wanted to quit acting because of negative comments."
Other than Suzy, Yoo Jae Suk suggested actress Seo Woo, Park Myung Soo invited "Unpretty Rapstar" Jessi, Park Mi Sun invited Yoo Seung Ok, and Jo Se Ho called Chef Choi Hyun Suk.
This episode of "Happy Together 3" will air on the 2nd at 11:10PM KST! Do you think this means Suzy has been reading all the comments about her and Lee Min Ho"s relationship?
The two onscreen lovebirds look like they"re shooting for the series" poster, but it"s evident that the two actors get along offset as well. Song Ji Hyo and Byun Yo Han"s stares, laughs, and skinship all seem like they come to the couple naturally.

It’s hard to notice the underdog. He’s standing on the sidelines or warming up the bench, waiting for his time to shine – while we’re all preoccupied with the starting lineup.
And thus, I hadn’t realized that I’d already seen actor Choi Woo Shik more than a few times.
But then came this year’s “Hogu’s Love.”
But let’s back up…this isn’t our first date with Choi Woo Shik; we’ve met that youthful face before.
Starts from K putting the ring on her finger and saying it fitsperfectly. This is yours. SYJ bought it in the past. D: YJ shi did?K: now next to me you can waver – if you keep that on I wont go to youagain. I –KKJ- wont ever love you.
M repeats what CS told her. M: your dad said to get married rightnow? CS: yes. my dad said if you arent going to get married then dontmeet again. M: they should get married later when he comes back. He cantnow. she runs off so CS says doctor seo already came back-you said notto oppose so why are you like that.
