No, he doesn"t! Yes, that is eyeliner... maybe some eyeshadow... but he"s clearly a guy. Look at those abs and masculine gaze--how could you ever mistaken him as a girl?

The year 2014 has barely kicked off, but two talented male idols have already caught the public’s eye on the big screen.
These two young men are none other than ZE:A‘s Siwan and B1A4‘s Jinyoung, who have successfully transferred from the music shows to movie sets.
Known for his statue-like looks, Siwan made his conclusive breakthrough as Jin Woo in the box-office hit “The Attorney.” Even though his role as the son of a poor mother running a restaurant was not the leading one, he touched the viewers’ hearts with his realistic and emotional acting, earning praises from critics.
Despite being a fairly new face in the scene, Siwan managed to match the level of industry seniors Song Kang Ho, Kim Young Ae, Kwak Do Won and others
Girls’ Generation‘s maknae Seohyun has posted a picture of herself with two helpful actors from the “Notre Dame” musical on her Twitter page along with the message “Hwi orabeoni and Dongsuk orabeoni had an amazing performance!! Notre-Dame de Paris~! I watched it very well! ^^ Thank you for inviting me~ㅎFor the two orabeonis that thankfully helped a deficient person like me ~ You guys are the best! ㅎ Until the last performance of ’The Moon That Embraces the Sun.’ hwaiting!♥” (“orabeoni” an old Korean word for “oppa“). Seohyun looks gorgeous in her black jacket, and it seems these two actors gave Seohyun a lot of advice and tips on becoming a theater performer.
Seohyun is currently acting in the musical remake of “The Moon That Embraces the Sun“ with Super Junior‘s Kyuhyun

, it’s important to be reminded that before the fierceness and the hilarity she’s shown on the variety show, she is an actress foremost.
So as our Star of the Week, we look through her impressive track record. See if you knew it was Song Ji Hyo in some of these projects! Goong
This was Song Ji Hyo’s first drama ever, and she picked a good project to begin with.
In MBC’s Goong
, Song Ji Hyo took on the role of Min Hyo Rin, the crown prince’s sorta-girlfriend-but-not-really.
Of course, then things got even more complicated when the crown prince was forced into marriage with a girl and a love triangle was formed
Rapper Gary has made a funny cameo appearance on episode six of tvN’s hospital love drama “Emergency Couple.” In the cameo scene, Oh Jin Hee, played by Song Ji Hyo, gets drunk and calls a driver to take her back home. Gary appears as the working driver and helps the drunk Oh Jin Hee get into her car. During the scene, Oh Jin Hee calls Gary as “Gary Ajusshi,” but Gary comically responds, “I’m not Gary. Who’s Gary? I’m Terry.” The joke is a pun because “terry” or “dae-ri” in Korean can also mean driver. The drunk Oh Jin Hee makes the scene funnier by hitting on Gary saying, “You’re my style.”
You can watch Gary’s surprise cameo appearance in the video below. The Fri-Sat drama “Emergency Couple” airs on tvN at 8:40PM
Director Hwang Dong Hyuk’s “Miss Granny” will be the first Korean movie of 2014 to break through the 5 million audience barrier.

Get this, the photos you are about to see are photos of f(x)’s Krystal while she was in the 5th grade.
It’s hard to imagine that the singer was only 12 years old (Korean age) when these photos were taken. Despite the baby face, Krystal’s beautiful body line shows that the singer was born with good genes!
The never-before-seen photos surfaced on blog of someone who had previously worked with Krystal on a CF shoot back in late 2004, early 2005. The unidentified blogger wrote on her blog, “At the time she was a 12 years old girl in the 5th grade. Her face was pretty, and her body line was long and nice even when she was young, which made me think that she was different than other kids.”
The photos of Krystal show her sporting front bangs and what seems like a training outfit
Hallyu actress Park Shin Hye has over 5 million followers on Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter.
As of February 7 at 9 AM KST, Park Shin Hye’s Weibo attracted 5,406, 667 followers. Through her roles in various dramas including, “You’re Beautiful,” “Fabulous Boys,” and “The Heirs,” the actress is receiving much love and support from fans abroad.
Reaching 5 million followers on Weibo is a first by a Korean actress. Considering “The Heirs” has not yet been officially broadcasted in China, it is predicted the number of followers will increase.
A rep from Park Shin Hye’s agency, S.A.L.T. Entertainment, remarked, “We are thankful to all the fans in China. We believe Park Shin Hye’s effort to connect directly with fans through various SNS sites is reaching fans domestically and internationally
On February, actor Chun Jung Myung’s agency stated to a Korean news outlet, “Chun Jung Myung will be starring in ‘Ten Days Ago.’ He seems to have a deep attachment to the drama.”
The rep further explained, “We are currently waiting to begin filming. It overlaps with the filming of ‘Real Men,’ but he will do his best.”
OCN’s new drama with the working title “Ten Days Ago” portrays the story of a man who is forced to face crimes he committed in his past 10 days before his statute of limitations runs out. Kim Yong Kyun, who created “Like Fire Like Butterfly” and “The Webtoon,” is the director. Ahn Young Soo, who wrote “The Case of Itaewon Homicide,“ is in charge of the scenario.
Chun Jung Myung will be making his TV screen comeback in two years through his role in “Ten Days Ago
Age of Feeling: Episode 8 recap by drama beans
In order to help Jung-tae learn how to fight against swords, Boss Hwang takes him to the gibang to meet Ajusshi Choi. Though Jung-tae’s known him for a while, he seems unaware of Ajusshi’s past as a guard for the Korean Empire (which ended in 1910 when Japan annexed Korea).
So Ajusshi Choi takes Jung-tae under his tutelage, and despite what I thought, Jung-tae isn’t trying to learn how to use a sword, but to fight unarmed against one. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but… why wouldn’t he want to use a sword even just as a shield instead of relying on his squishy human flesh for protection?
But Jung-tae answers that question by learning Ajusshi Choi’s lessons with lightning-quick accuracy, and in the end, wins the fight with his fists
Girl’s Day appeared on KBS 2TV’s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” on February 7, where they performed their hit tracks “Expectation” and “Something,” and had a mini-interview with MC Yoo Hee Yeol.
Girl’s Day previously performed on “Sketchbook” two years ago at the end of the show, but without a talk segment. Hyeri noted that compared to then, the cheers were much louder this time and thanked fans for their support.
MC Yoo Hee Yeol asked them if they were satisfied with their group’s name. The girls replied that Girl’s Day was probably the best choice of the candidates, which included Ice cream and Diamond.
He also asked them about them about miss A and Sistar, two girl groups that debuted around the same time as Girl’s Day
The Got7 members shared a piece of advice they got from JYPE’s CEO Park Jin Young.
Attending a photoshoot with magazine Grazia, the Got7 members caught the eyes of the staff with their respectful attitude and stylish looks.
During an interview with Grazia, the members chose Jackson as the most confident one and Mark as ‘the most Korean’ member out of the foreign members.
Mark said, “I can adapt to a new environment quickly since I’ve lived in different countries since I was young. Jackson can’t eat spicy food, but BamBam and I like it.”
Choosing reading as his favorite hobby, Jr. said, “Taking acting lessons has broadened my expression in singing and dancing and since it requires a lot of imagination, I made reading a new hobby of mine.”
As a vocalist praised by Park Jin Young, Youngjae said, “Park Jin Young told me that my high pitched tone was very smooth and open
Right, so there was actual news about Yeo Jin-gu, which I was reading before I got distracted by pretty pictures. This one is an update of a big-budget blockbuster that was in planning for years and then stalled due to production delays, titled Fist Fighting, and although it lost Jo In-sung (who was cast a few years ago as its original lead), now Yeo Jin-gu (Hwa-yi, I Miss You, The Moon That Embraces the Sun) is in the mix to step in.
You might wonder how it is that Yeo Jin-gu (16) would be up for the same role that Jo In-sung (32) once took, because while they are both very strong actors and both currently on upward trajectories, I can’t imagine that they’d overlap much in image or role choices. But it’s not quite as odd once I recall that Fist Fighting is a sci-fi fantasy movie set in the future (2050) centering around a high school student who fights back against oppressing forces
