Seungri, Lee Sang Yoon, Ku Hye Sun, Kim Ji Seok, Gong Hyung Jin, Joo Ahn, Kwon Hae Hyo, Kim Yeo Jin, Kang Ha Neul, Nam Ji Hyun, and others sat together for the script reading for the drama. The session began with director Park Shin Woo encouraging the actors and staff to create a good drama together.
With each line, the actors became seriously invested in their roles, and then Seungri’s part came along. With his character being a Korean American, who grew up in the hands of his grandmother from down south, Seungri made everyone roar in laughter as he presented his lines in a Chungcheong-do accent mixed in with some English.
Hwang Jung Eum and Yeon Jung Hoon are currently in talks for the upcoming SBS drama, “Endless Love.” Officials at the actors’ respective agencies said to Newsen on March 24, “They’ve received proposals for the drama, and are looking them over. While they are discussing the roles, nothing has been decided yet.”
“Endless Love” will be a period drama set against the background of Korean politics and economics in the 1980′s, and will draw a love story between the two main characters.
BIGBANG’s “Fantastic Baby” MV hit 100 million views on YouTube today, two years after its release in 2012.
This means that BIGBANG becomes the first male Korean group to break the 100 million barrier, following in the footsteps of PSY (“Gentleman” and “Gangnam Style”) and Girls’ Generation (“Gee”).
“Fantastic Baby” is an up-tempo track off BIGBANG’s fifth mini-album, “Alive,” with a strong beat, catchy tune and dynamic choreography. It is no wonder that the song still enjoys much popularity today.
With just a week to go before the first episode, SBS’ Angel Eyes unveiled new still cuts of Big Bang’s Seungri in uniform.
On March 31, Angel Eyes released new photos of Teddy Seo, Seungri’s character in the drama.

Upcoming SBS drama “Angel Eyes” revealed pictures from the set on the first day of filming, showing Seungri acting in his first legitimate Korean drama. The drama is a youthful melodrama centering on two loved ones fatefully meeting again 12 years after they separate due to a car accident rendering one of them blind.
In the published pictures, Seungri has transformed into emergency rescue worker Teddy Seo, who hails from Texas and shamelessly mixes in English and Chungcheong dialect into his words, doing this with ease so that he immediately receives the okay from Producer Park Shin Woo.
Seungri talks about getting advice from T.O.P + acting officially for the first time in 'Angel Eyes'
