After School’s Uee is currently positively considering joining SBS’ The Laws of the Jungle

Uee’s agency, Pledis, spoke with Newsen on April 22, saying, “Uee received an offer to appear on The Laws of the Jungle and we are positively taking it into consideration. Her participation isn’t confirmed just yet.”

The offer given to Uee for The Laws of the Jungle will take her to an island in the Indian Ocean. The PD in charge of the episodes will be Park Mi Yeon, who took the reins in the Micronesia episodes. The staff had already visited the island in early April.

Uee has appealed to the public as an After School member with a sexy and healthy image. She’s also appeared in KBS’ Ojakyo Brothers and MBC’s Golden Rainbow, transforming into actress, while she’s also showed her potential on variety shows such as SBS’ Night After Night and Barefooted Friends

That is why I am not worried. I am doing this with the thought that it"s okay to take my time and experience things little by little

“I don’t think I’ve ever taken a proper break. After School’s next album is going to come out this year, but until then, I plan on taking some time off. Luckily, my acting and singing schedules have never overlapped. If they had, I think it would have been really hard. Seeing idols nowadays who do both album promotions and acting at the same time, it’s impressive

‘Kim Baek Won’ from MBC’s recently ended drama Golden Rainbow is an optimistic character. Despite all the difficulties she faced, she smiled at the rainbow in the end.

Taking the role of ‘Kim Baek Won,’ After School’s Uee seemed to have learned and felt many things. During a recent interview with Newsen, Uee said, “I still can’t believe the drama is over. I just feel so thankful for all the viewers who watched until the end.”

“When I acted in Jeon Woochi after acting in a longer and slower paced drama, I realized how conceited I was. I was not at all used to the fast paced filming throughout the nights and getting scripts at the last minute. I felt my own shortcomings and it almost led to a trauma in acting. I even avoided mini series for awhile,” confessed Uee

Q: Do you have an ideal type?

A: After I made my debut, my ideal type was none other than Gong Yoo sunbaenim. But I am also a woman. There are times when my ideal type changes. I like men who don"t have double eyelids. That is why I once said that I like Rain sunbaenim as well. There are people who say that my ideal type is always changing after I said that. I feel falsely accused [laughs]. My ideal type is still Gong Yoo sunbaenim. I watched "Coffee Prince" around four times. Of course, I watch "Heirs" and wonder if there is a handsome man like Kim Tan and get swayed by him

The two actors had a myriad of romantic scenes in the drama, ranging from sad to happy. "I think we had more kiss scenes when I was crying," UEE recalled during their appearance on "Section TV". When asked if she had a tough time because of the crying, she proudly said, "I did it in one take".

However, Jung Il Woo claimed ignorance. "Did you say you did it in one take?" he asked her disbelievingly. "You said you wanted to kiss more!" he said, causing UEE to blush.

Park Min-young to play Kim Myung-min’s leading lady

By in News posted Oct March 26th, 2014 No comments

After turning down a number of recent projects, Park Min-young has finally chosen her first drama in two years since Dr. Jin. She’ll be joining Kim Myung-min (King of Dramas) in his new MBC law drama A New Leaf as his leading lady. I like Park Min-young in most projects, but Kim Myung-min is totally going to act circles around her, isn’t he?

The new Wednesday-Thursday drama comes from the writer of medical drama Golden Time and the PD of Scandal and I Miss You. Kim Myung-min stars as a hotshot corporate lawyer who ends up with amnesia after an accident. The memory loss motivates him to turn over a new leaf; or perhaps it’s more accurate to say that he gets a personality transplant by virtue of the fact that he can’t remember the heartless shark he used to be

If Big Bang’s Seungri and Kang Ha Neul thought they could stop Song Ji Hyo from getting where she was going, they were wrong. So terribly wrong.

On March 23’s broadcast of SBS’ Running Man, the Running Man cast went up against the cast of SBS’ new drama, Angel Eyes.

The members of both teams participated in a relay climb, running up the 63 Building in Seoul. As the mission and competition became fiercer, Seungri tried to block Song Ji Hyo from getting where she needed to go.

Too bad for Seungri, Song Ji Hyo didn’t hesitate in pinning him down and hitting his back, pushing him out of her way. Kang Ha Neul came to Seungri’s rescue, only to find himself on the ground within seconds, grabbing onto Song Ji Hyo’s ankles and yelling she couldn’t leave
