This is 0.2% higher than the previous episode but it"s still far behind from SBS "High Society" and MBC "Splendid Politics".

It turned out that Lee Hyeon (Seo In-guk) had experienced memory loss twice in the past.

He remembered Cha Ji-an (Jang Nara) by looking at their childhood picture and found out that he"d lost his memory on both accounts because of Lee Joon-yeong (Do Kyeong-soo).

Yoon Kye Sang seeks thrill atop buildings for new drama “Last”

Stills of Yoon Kye Sang hanging precariously to the ledges of buildings for action scenes in new JTBC drama "Last" have surfaced, raising anticipation for its upcoming broadcast! 



Yoon Kye Sang"s body is suspended dangerously in air as he hangs on for dear life, his hands clamped tightly to buildings"s ledges. The only thing lending the actor support in these thrilling action scenes is a single wire, as he climbs the walls and makes his grand escape through the window of a four-story building. Despite these hazardous nature of these action sequences, Yoon Kye Sang didn"t lose his focus and was perfectly absorbed for his role.

What"s more impressive is that though the actor had a stunt double, he still performed the actions sequences himself. Further, the actor treated the rehearsals just as seriously as if the cameras were actually rolling, showcasing his deep dedication to every part of the filming process.

On July 7′s episode of tvN‘s talk show “Taxi,” renowned photographer Jo Sun Hee is asked to list which stars she thinks are the best models. First off, she suggests that she should probably not include Jung Woo Sung or Lee Jung Jae, as she’s friends with them.

Out of the remaining stars that she’s worked with, she chooses Yoo Ah In as the best model. “He’s really free in front of the camera,” she explains. “He’s purposely not conscious of the camera. Usually when people are doing photo shoots, they freeze in certain poses. But Yoo Ah In moves around freely as though we’re filming a video, so it seems like he’s having a good time. He’s really talented.”

Do you agree with these 12 banned female k-pop dances?

You know that feeling when you"re checking out your favorite artist"s live stage and that one dance move you remember in the music video just doesn"t make it in? You may even realize their obvious choreography change and you"re wondering, why? The answer most likely lies in the fact that it"s been deemed inappropriate and therefore banned. By live stage, I"m specifically talking about the ones of South Korean broadcast stations. We"ve all gotten upset over these banned dances, majority of them being for female artists.

SB Mid-Year Review, 2015: Risks Pay Off in Albums Written by Cjontai On July 7, 2015

It’s the mid-year mark, which means we must review how things are going in K-pop to this point. We’ve already discussed dances, comebacks, and MVs, so next up is — ALBUMS!

Some fans may base their decision to buy an album off the title song alone, which can result in overlooking diamonds hidden in coal. For the ones who do make the wise investment of their time and dime, it’s a worthwhile journey into the musical musings of their favorite artists. Like gemstones, each album takes time to be crafted into a precious jewel that dazzles all who behold it.
