Woori"s fans showed some love by sending a coffee car to the set of her current drama, "Flower of the Queen"! It must have provided a nice burst of energy for the hardworking cast and crew members.
DSP Media shared pictures recently and write, "Rainbow"s fan club, Rainnous, presented a coffee car for Woori, who is currently on MBC weekend drama "Flower of the Queen," and the staff members on site."
During their appearance last week on "Weekly Idol," the boys, especially Jaejin, received attention and some criticism for revealing that they are currently interested in the members of Red Velvet.
Ever since the airing, fans of Red Velvet have raided Jaejin"s Instagram, commenting on each of his pictures with remarks regarding the girl group.
Spring is well under way, and it’s time for the April edition of Unsung Artists! In this segment we take a look at some of the lesser-known releases of the month. There were lots of singles to choose from, but these were the ones that caught my eye!
1. Shin Zisu (신지수) feat. Sleeq, “Hey Jude”
Shin Zisu encourages people to take a break from studying and have some fun in “Hey Jude.” The song’s fresh sound, Shin Zisu’s soulful vocals, and Sleeq’s rapping all combine into the perfect song for spring. Intense studying is the norm in South Korea which leads to high academic achievements but also high rates of suicide. So Shin Zisu’s focus on getting students outside to have some fun (because youth doesn’t last forever) is an important message to hear. The video shows that you don’t need to go crazy at the clubs to have fun; a group of friends relax within their own neighborhood. They take photos in animal costumes, have a party at the house, and just hang out in the streets.
JYJ"s Kim Jae Joong has almost finished his basic training. The singer and actor reported for his mandatory military duty on March 31 and he has been in basic training since then. There will be a ceremony soon to mark the completion of basic training. Friends and family of the recruits have been invited.
A representative from his agency, C-JeS Entertainment, stated that Kim"s family and agency representatives are planning to attend the ceremony. It is not yet known whether fellow JYJ members Junsu and Park Yoo Chun will be able to attend.
Super Junior’s Heechul, who is currently working with TRAX’s Jungmo as M&D, revealed the meaning behind the name M&D.
On the May 5 episode of SBS PowerFM’s “CulTwo Show,” Heechul guested and spoke with the two DJs.
When asked about the meaning behind M&D’s group name, Heechul replies, “It stands for Miari and Dankyedong. Jungmo lived in Miari and I lived in Dankyedong.”
He"s a rapper, vocalist and dancer with the band BtoB but Yook Sung Jae is also an aspiring actor. He makes his presence known in the new school drama "Who Are You - School 2015" as the Kim So Hyun"s quirky classmate.
His character has an endearing lopsided smile that reminds some of a younger Seo In Guk.
The 20-year-old Sungjae has flashed that smile in a few dramas so far. Although he is attracting attention in "Who Are You - School 2015?" his breakout drama was probably "Nine Plus Boys." In that drama he played the passionate 19-year-old Kang Min Gu, one of three brothers whose age ended in nine. His character found the girl of his dreams. He was sure of it. But since he was supposedly having an unlucky year, due the superstition that ages ending in nine are unlucky, things did not go as planned. The girl did not like him. And then when she did, she was not who he imagined her to be.
Jo Kwon and Yenny were the first two to appear on the show and they gave their honest advice to the trainees. Jo Kwon also talked about how to get J.Y. Park"s interest. He stated to the major team members, "First, you have to compliment J.Y. Park. The thing that artists from different labels are most jealous about is the fact that we can directly communicate with the producer."
On the May 5th episode of SBS "Heard It Through the Grapevine", as all of the housekeepers and helpers went into strike, Jeong-ho (Yoo Joon-sang) and Yeon-hee (Yoo Ho-jeong) were lost at what to do about it.
Seo Bom (Ko Ah-seong) and In-sang (Lee Joon) prepared breakfast for Yeon-hee and Jeong-ho.
While they were having the breakfast, I-ji (Park So-yeong-II) came and told them, "Jin-yeong pooped this morning and I washed him in the kitchen sink". Yeon-hee and Jeong-ho felt nauseous and vomited.
On the 8th episode of MBC Monday & Tuesday drama, "Splendid Politics", Jeongmyeong (Lee Yeon-hee) approached Hong Joo-won (Seo Kang-joon) in order to find a way to return to Joseon.
When Jeongmyeong heard Joseon Tongsinsa (diplomatic envoy) would come, she was headed to Edo so she could possibly meet the people from Joseon. She disguised as a man and could enter Edo successfully.
While she was searching around to find anyone from Joseon, she spotted Hong Joo-won at a tavern still without any idea who he was. Meanwhile, Hong Joo-won came to Edo as part of the Joseon Tongsinsa to complete his secret mission to bring in sulfur to Joseon secretly. He was supposed to meet a mine owner at the tavern. However the mine owner did not show up. At this Hong Joo-won was about to leave and got into an advertent fight with a Japanese.
For the second half of our Top Ten Favorite K-Drama back hugs, we would like to start by acknowledging the ladies. Female k-drama characters give good back hugs too. Shin Se Kyung gave Park Yoo Chun a back hug in "Sensory Couple" aka "Girl Who Sees Smells" but she was not the first. Yoon Eun Hye gave back hugs in "Coffee Prince" and "Princess Hours." It"s a sweet gesture whoever does it.
Here is the list with the last five of our top ten k-drama back hugs.

Countries around the world are trying to deal with the problem of bullying in school and Korea is no exception. To stop bullying, students may have to speak up when they see it happen.
The topic of school bullying is explored in two current k-dramas. "Angry Mom" and "Who Are You? - School 2015?" In "Angry Mom" Kim Hee Sun is so upset about her daughter"s bullying that she disguises herself as a student and attends her daughter"s school to give the bullies a taste of what it feels like. In "Who Are You - School 2015?" Kim So Hyun plays dual roles, a girl who was mercilessly bullied and a girl who bullies others. The two roles demonstrate why bullying may happen and what it feels like when it does.
The hosts of television fashion series A Style For You rocked the latest trends in the May issue of Vogue Girl.
