Spolier alert! An online community recently posted several pictures from the popular SBS drama “The Heirs.” Actors Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye were spotted shooting for the drama in the areas around the East Sea shore.
Many are guessing that these images were taken during the filming for the upcoming episode 17. According to some sources, although he does not appear in these pictures, Kim Woo Bin was spotted as well.
Fans of the drama and fellow netizens commented, “Spoiler…but I wonder what will happen next,” “What were they doing over there?” “I was curious after the latest episode because there weren’t any previews for the next one.”
On another note, Kim Woo Bin is currently very much compared against Yoo Yeon Seok from “Reply 1994″ as both are having one-sided crushes for the main female character of their respective drama
It is time to say goodbye to KBS2TV’s “Marry Him If You Dare,” as the last episode of the drama will air today. However, to wrap up the drama in a memorable way, Yoon Eun Hye, Lee Dong Gun, and Jung Yong Hwa gathered to sign their scripts of the drama and snap a few photos.
The last filming took place in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province, on December 1. The three actors put forth their best effort to film a high-quality scene for the very last time. Despite the scene being short, it was shot multiple times to fully capture the detailed emotions that the three wanted to deliver. Even when lacking sleep and having a tight schedule, the actors appeared more energetic than ever and touched the producers’ hearts with their unbelievable professionalism. Having spent almost four months together, the three have become comfortable and friendly with each other, and like a small family, they kept joking and taking photos until the very end, making the atmosphere on set even more heart-warming
Shinhwa is setting a new record each day just by being the longest running idol group in K-Pop history. Even with fifteen years under its belt, Shinhwa proves that it is possible to set another record.
On May 27, Shinhwa Company’s CEO Eric (the leader of Shinhwa) rewarded every staff member in the company, from the executive board to the newest employee, with big bonuses and its drawing the attention of the public.
Eric previously made a promise on May 23 on “M! Countdown.” He said, “If we get first place, we will give all the company employees bonuses.” Companies usually have a “company dinner treating beef” so the staff members were surprised by the unexpected gift.
One industry insider commented, “Usually, entertainment agencies have a great mood through company dinners, but I heard that the staff members were really surprised when they received money
Cable network TV Chosun is getting back in the drama game in the coming year with a new fantasy drama called Hundred Year Bride, and has cast FT Island’s Lee Hong-ki (You’re Beautiful) and newbie model-turned-actress Yang Jin-sung (she played Ji Sung’s first love in Secret) as the leading couple. You’re Beautiful was actually the last thing I saw Lee Hong-ki in, so it seems like forever since he was last in dramaland (he’s since done a movie).
The 16-episode drama is called a fantasy melo, and is about a plain-looking girl from a small town on a tiny island who one day comes across a bracelet that makes the wearer beautiful. Pfffffft. O…kay. I mean, you could’ve gone with gumihos, vampires, time-travelers, or body-swappers, but prettifying bracelet it is

The song is The Blue’s “Feeling Only You,” and Samcheonpo declares himself the Sohn Ji-chang role in this duet, with someone else filling in for Kim Min-jong’s part. Ooh, I want it to be Binggeure, now a successful singer. Samcheonpo belts out the first verse, and passes the metaphorical baton over to his partner… omg, it’s Kim Min-jong? The real one? Oppaaaaaa! (Hey, y’all have Garbage oppa, I have Min-jong oppa

On December 3, a representative from SM C&C stated, “Kim Ha Neul has re-signed with SM C&C. She regrets that she wasn’t able to promote a lot this year. She plans to greet fans with a good project next year.”

Kim Ha Neul became labelmates with Hyun Bin, Jang Dong Gun, Shin Min Ah, and more when she signed her contract with AM Entertainment in 2011. However, the agency merged with SM C&C the following year.

Go Ara, known as one of the top beauties amongst the beauties in SM Entertainment, managed to truly transform for her biggest hit yet, the currently airing Reply 1994.
