Kbs Big Ep 8 Preview
Now, even as Yoona herself is taking a glance stunning and fun, the fact that the company behind here is powerful and also managing her is worrying. Make no mistake, companies are in it for money, no longer art and entertainment. Will the creators be allowed to do things as they know would like to be done, or will SM C&C interfere? If it does, there is no fighting this sort of big force.
The age hollow
In itself, it is no longer a problem (not for everyone). yet if it affects the ratings or the public don"t take to it, it would mean killing the romance to prevent the decline. Will there also be a kiss and skinship? Will the ones involved pass there and may just the netizens accept and love it or are we in for a platonic and dull love warding off sexual charm and intimacy at all cost? The previews make one hopeful, at least.
Another week in Hallyu land has come and gone. While this week was not overflowing with comebacks — Big Bang and Exo appear to a lock-down in that department — plenty transpired this week. While some headlines had us shaking our head (cough fan wars), we were also graced with news of a lot of great things to look forward to this summer! In case you missed it, here’s what went down this week:
New preview cuts of EXO members Baekhyun and Chanyeol on their playdate with Lee Hwi Jae’s twin sons were recently revealed.
On May 22, the production team of KBS’ “Superman Returns” shared pictures from the upcoming episode that will be featuring the EXO members as they babysit the twins, Seo Un and Seo Jun.
The upcoming May 24 broadcast will show Baekhyun and Chanyeol making a visit to Lee Hwi Jae’s home to finally meet the adorable twin boys.
On March 19, KBS2‘s “Happy Together” revealed still cuts from BIGBANG‘s guest appearance on the show. The members are clad in sauna clothes and look like they are thoroughly enjoying themselves.
Pictures of G-Dragon and Park Myung Soo‘s reunion is shown as well as images showing dancing and good times. Yoo Jae Suk also happily greets Daesung with whom he filmed “Family Outing” with.
Campy or Embarrassing
The teasers and especially the luchador (Mexican wrestler) mask have taken many by surprise and for good reason. Dramas are usually about presenting a cool and handsome male lead and things which might harm that appeal are minimized. Putting an attractive man and his fine suit in a sparkly wrestling mask does cause some cognitive dissonance, but it also shows a work which is not afraid to be silly. However, not taking oneself seriously is when something becomes fun. If the series crosses that line, it will just feel ridiculous.
Cha Tae Hyun revealed a funny story that happened while filming “Producer.”
On the May 16 episode of KBS2‘s “Entertainment Relay,” he revealed, “There are a lot of people around me who want to visit the drama set.”
He added, “So many people want to visit the set and it’s all because of Kim Soo Hyun. The drama’s scale got big because of Kim Soo Hyun.”
Be it nine tailed foxes, ghosts or other, there is always something which frames the romance and generates obstacles for it in the Hongs" works. "Warm and Cozy" lacks such an element. On one hand, this can be good. It might leave room for more fleshed out relationships and characters, something many of the writers" works lack. If the Hongs have not decided to go a bit deeper, however, it might just leave this a series devoid of what makes their works fun as well as a superficial one.
New preview stills for the much anticipated drama “Producers” show Cha Tae Hyun (playing Ra Joon Mo) and Gong Hyo Jin (playing Tak Ye Jin) having a talk inside a bar.
The portrayed characters have been best friends for 20 years and also got hired at KBS at the same time. Joon Mo is the head-producer for the representative KBS shows “1 Night 2 Days” and “Music Bank,” and will play a big part in the drama with his hilarious story line.
Anyone who goes to Jeju has to try the island’s sweet and juicy mandarin oranges, and the kids of “Superman Returns” are no exception.
The families of “Superman Returns” are currently on a three day/two night trip to Jeju, and viewers caught a glimpse of their adventures there in the last episode.
From previews of the May 3 episode, it looks like the youngest members of the group, twins Seo Eon and Seo Joon, and Uhm Tae Woong‘s daughter Ji On, get to taste Jeju’s unique fruit and absolutely love its sweetness.
Welcome back to Best of Weekly Music Shows! This was a packed week of performances as the K-pop year is winding down. It also means that year-end specials and yearly award shows are preparing for air. Mnet M! Countdown aired a special recap of performances and previewed their upcoming MAMA Award show on December 3.
Kyuhyun was revealed as the winner for this week’s M!Countdown, and he won another trophy for MBC Show Champion. Wins were split everywhere else. Toy won on KBS Music Bank and MBC Show! Music Core. Two sets of duos — Hyorin x Jooyoung and GD x Taeyang won on SBS The Show and Inkigayo, respectively. Shannon Williams made her debut this week. T-ara, Lim Chang-jung and Wa$$up are among some of the performers who made comebacks this week.
Suh Un and Suh Joon have a play date with Shin Ae Ra”s daughters in preview cuts for “Superman is Back”
Ye Eun (10) and Ye Jin (8) held Suh Un and Suh Joon and fed the babies milk. Suh Un seemed surprisingly relaxed while drinking from his bottle in the arms of someone other than his parents.
Shin Ae Ra shared, "It looks like Suh Un is the one holding Ye Eun." Lee Hwi Jae joked to Suh Un, "You"re too big," laughing at how Suh Un looks like a cute giant in Ye Eun"s arms.
Chun Song Yi’s back, Do Min Joon is jealous (all the time), and we get a little surprise at the end of the episode that made us squeal out loud (like really).
Check out what we choice as our top 10 moments!!
Chun Song Yi:: There is a man who’s kind of like you.
There was this anxiety of not knowing when he’ll disappear.
But it’s over. I liked him alone.
Daddy Chun: I don’t know who that punk is, but I’m sure you’re not alone.
You are my daughter. I’m sure he likes you.
Chun Song Yi: You don’t even know anything.
I realized that it’s a very difficult thing for someone you love to love you back.
That’s a miracle. Nothing else.
Listen to your daddy.
Detective Park:There has to be some secret passageway!
Maybe it’s not the door.
It’s not the wall either
Detective Park looking for Platform Nine and Three Quarters.
Mama Chun : My daughter is Chun Song Yi! The nation’s goddesses!
The woman every man wants! The number one girl people want to date! Chun Song Yi!
Lawyer Jang: That’s old news.
Our Min Joon graduated from Harvard. And as you can see, he doesn’t fail in the looks department!
Do Min Joon: F-Father…
Lawyer Jang: Do you know how affectionately I raised him?
Mama Chun: Who cares if he came out of Harvard 100 times!
He has no responsibility! If he said he was going to be a manager, he should have stuck through it!
How dare he quit in the middle.
Lawyer Jang: Oh that manager thing? Min Joon didn’t do it because he wanted to, but your daughter kept chasing after him and begging him.
Do Min Joon: You can stop now.
Lawyer Jang: Stop what, you punk!
What is this ruckus! I told you not to do it!
Do you not have a job or money?
Why would you become Chun Song Yi’s manager?
Love that Lawyer Jang gets so into character.
Do Min Joon’s first nasty experience with netizens.
Do Min Joon: I miss you.
Alien powers sure came in handy.
Chun Song Yi: Can you eavesdrop on what people say?
Do Min Joon: …I don’t hear everything….
Chun Song Yi: What did you hear…?
Did you… like showers…. Bathroom…
Do Min Joon, are you a pervert?
Do Min Joon: What are you talking about?
I don’t hear everything. When I’m concerned, I hear things sometimes. Otherwise, I would be tired.
Chun Song Yi: You don’t like peek or anything, right?
Do Min Joon: This woman, who do you think I am?
I’m not like that!
Chun Song Yi: What would I know? You’re an alien!
How would I know where you go and what you look at?
Get out, you pervert alien!
Do Min Joon: This is the first time in my life to be treated like this.
I’m not a pervert!
That’s what you get abusing your powers and erasing that text.
When even fantasy kills you
Yoo Se Mi: Before the accident, Hwi Kyung told me that we shouldn’t even be friends.
He won’t see me anymore. He doesn’t want to make me unfortunate, because he’s unfortunate while liking you.
Do you understand why I hate you?
How would you understand?
Hwi Kyung might just be a good friend to you, but for me, he’s someone I’m willing to sacrifice everything for in return.
But that someone is only looking to you. What could I have done?
With nothing to be jealous about, you might have seen me as a girl who was jealous in the back living in the low ditches.
Chun Song Yi…
When Hwi Kyung fell trying to save you, I prayed for my life to be taken instead of his.
And I’m sure he felt the same way. That’s why he ran for you.
His heart made my heart kneel.
So Chun Song Yi, let me ask for a favor.
Can you just accept Hwi Kyung?
Chun Song Yi: Yoo Se Mi…
Yoo Se Mi: Hwi Kyung might be unfortunate not to have you, but you won’t be unfortunate to have him.
He’ll love and cherish you for the rest of his life.
At least one of us should be happy, right?
Se Mi’s biggest sacrifice.
Chun Song Yi: Why are you waiting for me?
Do Min Joon: I…need to protect you.
Chun Song Yi: Protect what. You need to tell me straight up because I’m not smart.
Tell me why you’re doing this to me, so I understand.
Do Min Joon, are you a player?
Or are you having fun toying with people’s feeling?
Then you say, sorry for making you misunderstand, you reminded me of my past lover.
You made a fool out of me.
You said there was none. Not even once.
You said you never liked me or was nervous around me
You never sincerely worried for me or drew out a future with me.
I was just that woman’s replacement!
I don’t think you know yet, so I’ll be frank.
I don’t like you anymore.
I don’t like you even more because you’re like this.
So don’t come into my eyesight – no my life – anymore
And know what a selfish person you are.
What are you doing?
Do Min Joon: This is the most selfish thing I can do to you.
Do Min Joon: Are you by any chance Chun Song Yi’s father?
Papa Chun: Who are you?
Do Min Joon: Chun Song Yi really missed you.
If you could be by her side when she wakes up, she’ll be really happy.
Papa Chun: Are you close with my daughter?
Do Min Joon: I like her a lot. Chun Song Yi.
Doesn’t it feel good to say it out loud?

allkpop [TV Program Guide] [Variety Edition]: [Op-Ed] Leessangs departure from variety: the problem with jumping to conclusions
I don’t usually discuss serious topics on the allkpop TV Guide. But this past week, something really big happened, something worth talking about – and it, sadly, didn’t need to happen at all.
I am, of course, talking about the hip-hop duo Leessang‘s announcement that they would be ending all of their stints on variety programs, with Gil on ‘Infinity Challenge‘ and Gary on ‘Running Man’. This is a reaction to the massive backlash they have received over a concert (‘Super 7‘), featuring the ‘Infinity Challenge’ members, that was produced by Leessang Company.
Chu Sarang and BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon, who are known to be massive fanatics of each other, eventually meet at the impending episode of “Superman Returns.”
In the preview description released for the episode, it is miles said that Chu Sarang freezes in awe once she sees G-Dragon, surprising everybody because she is in most cases so full of life and playful. Even if she has bother drawing close to him, Chu Sarang is rapid to get G-Dragon water when he says he is thristy.
As expected, BIGBANG’s “LOSER” becomes our new winner this week, moving up three spots from No. 4 to No. 1. They scored a perfect 1000 points, meaning that they boast a unanimous No. 1 from all our chart sources. “LOSER” is the first song to achieve a perfect score in 2015. It happened four times last year. “LOSER” swept all the music shows and was also ranked No. 1 on most independent charts. Congratulations to BIGBANG.
EXID’s “Ah Yeah” still remains strong, holding on to the No. 2 spot this week, while last week’s No. 1, BTS’ “I Need You,” drops two spots to No. 3.
"Orange Marmalade" is seeing some good signs to become a big hit.
KBS 2TV"s new Friday miniseries, "Orange Marmalade" has been attracting the heated attention with its star-studded cast including Yeo Jin-goo, Seolhyun, and Lee Jong-hyun. Since the preview trailer for the drama was posted on KBS" official Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/KBSPR/videos/975885942423601/?fref=nf), the click count of the first preview trailer has reached 1 million. Also, the preview trailer has been posted on the popular Chinese video sharing website, Tudou.
4Minute’s “Crazy” moves up 10 spots to become the new No. 1 song on our chart! This song is from their sixth mini-album of the same title. Prior to this song, 4Minute also released a preview single “Cold Rain” which went to No. 13. “Crazy” has a fast trap beat and additive chorus lyrics which perfectly show the members’ charismatic images. This is the third No. 1 song for 4Minute on our chart, and they continue their streak of having a chart topping song every odd year: “Mirror Mirror” in 2011, and “What’s Your Name?” in 2013. “Crazy” won on all music show rankings except Music Bank last week, so it was not a surprise to see this song winning by a wide margin here. Congratulations to 4Minute!
SBS has aired a short preview video ahead of next week’s episode of talk show “Healing Camp,” which will be featuring YG Entertainment chief Yang Hyun Suk. The episode could see the YG boss speak out about some of the controversies that currently surround some of the agency’s biggest stars.
From the preview, which aired on November 24, it can be seen that Yang Hyun Suk will be appearing on the show alongside Yoo Hee Yeol. Both stars are currently appearing as judges on the current KBS audition program “K-Pop Star.”
As expected, IU’s “Friday” becomes our new No. 1 song this week. Despite having no promotions, this song won all three TV network music show last week, and also tops Billboard Korea. As a result, “Friday” moves up six spots and easily won this week with a high score. Congratulations to IU.
Moving up seven spots to a distant second is veteran R&B quartet Brown Eyed Soul. Their song “You” have a strong showing in GAON and Billboard Korea, and also in the top five in TV Network rankings.
For the first time in eight weeks, a song repeats as No. 1 on our chart. Hyorin’s “One Way Love” remains on top this week to claim the last No. 1 spot of this year. She edged out EXO’s new Christmas song “Miracles In December” by 17 points. The two songs were about even on all our sources, with each winning two music shows. The main difference was on KBS Music Bank where “One Way Love” was No. 1 and “Miracles In December” was No. 9. That gap enables Hyorin to continue to top our chart and becomes the first two week champion since IU’s “The Red Shoes” on November Week 1. Congratulations.
