*Warning: Mild Spoilers Included

On Episode 10 of MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama, “Fated to Love You” that aired July 31, the main characters portrayed by Jang Nara and Jang Hyuk were seen wearing high school uniforms. What drew attention, however, was the fact that they were each doing a parody of their past drama and movie, respectively.

In this episode, Mi Young (portrayed by Jang Nara) and Lee Gun (portrayed by Jang Hyuk) were being followed by reporters after their contract marriage became known to the public. Mi Young was surrounded in her mom’s restaurant while Lee Gun was trapped in his home. Each character disguised themselves as high school students in order to escape and meet up with each other.

Mi Young took up the alias of Yang Soon while escaping, which caught viewers’ attention since that was the name of the character that Jang Nara portrayed in the 2002 drama “Successful Story of a Bright Girl,” where she also starred alongside Jang Hyuk

Billboard features Wonder Girls’ Yenny comeback as HA:TFELT

By in News posted Oct August 2nd, 2014 No comments


On July 30, Billboard published an article that featured the comeback of Wonder Girls’ lead vocalist Yenny as a soloist with a new stage name HA:TFELT.

HA:TFELT released the music video of her self-composed comeback song "Ain’t Nobody." Along with her release, a writer from Billboard wrote and described her return in the KPop scene.

Jeff Benjamin wrote, "Ultimately, HA:TFELT shows Yenny taking risks with her music and image. The Usher fanatic could have come back with a safe pop tune or ballad, but she chose an intense, genre-defying creation. She could have prepared a fun dance routine, but she went for freestyle choreography. Yenny could have even shied away from the dubstep -- it"s been a part of K-pop for years now -- but the decision ends up adding an intensity to Yenny"s emotional belts, presumably an artistic decision
