By in News posted Oct August 25th, 2014 No comments

Actress Lee Bo Young has reminisced the filming process of 2013 hit drama “I Can Hear Your Voice” and her role as the lover of actor Lee Jong Suk.

The actress recently sat down with a reporter of MBC’s “Section TV Entertainment Relay” for a short interview, which was revealed on the August 24 episode of the show.

When asked how she felt about engaging in a thrilling but sweet romance with Lee Jong Suk, who happens to be around ten years younger than the actress, Lee Bo Young replied while laughing, “While filming, I thought, ‘When will I be able to act alongside such a young man again?” and felt thankful every day.”

Hong Suk Chun got in between Yura and Hong Jong Hyun on the August 16th episode of "We Got Married".

The Girl"s Day member had to compete for Hong Jong Hyun"s attention, but not against someone you"d expect. The couple went to meet Hong Jong Hyun"s friend Hong Suk Chun, who made it obvious he was a bit jealous of Yura.

Things started off badly when Yura noticed that Hong Jong Hyun introduced her as a friend. The openly gay entertainer said to Yura, "I follow Jong Hyun around. Give him up to me. I"ll treat him very well as a hyung," adding, "Is Girl"s Day that big of a deal? How could you get married in one day?"

He later asked the model-turned-actor when does he gets butterflies over Yura, and Hong Jong Hyun answered, "I saw Yura during filming once, and I felt different that day

All the important Korean Entertainment news from this week in one place: This is your Weekly Soompi Roundup!

This week in celebrity news…

Did Minzy get plastic surgery? Her agency says no, but it looks like everyone else is saying yes. SM Entertainment claims that Taeyeon and YoonA are not the drunk girls in a picture taken in Hong Kong. Then Jessica is injured at the airport. This would have been a bigger deal if there wasn’t another big story that had just erupted that day. Eunhyuk‘s Twitter got hacked multiple times. Meanwhile, I had fun with some of my Twitter friends thinking of possible passwords that he might have used. My favorites: “AnchoviesRulez7,” “TeukCanIBeLeader4Awhile,” “DonghaeIzMine,” “GummySmile1,” and “SujusRealVisual

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2013 – October Week 3

By in News posted Oct October 21st, 2013 No comments

The top two songs remain the same this week as Busker Busker’s “First Love” is No. 1 for a second week in a row with another very high score. This song again is nearly unanimous atop of many rankings. Lim Chang Jung’s “About Me” remains at No. 2.

There are five new songs in the top 10 this week. The highest brand new debut is Block B’s “Very Good” at No. 3. This song is coming from Block B’s third mini-album of the same name. They previously released a slower tempo track “Be The Light” as a preview single. “Very Good” has a bright and lively melody line with fun and cheerful lyrics that is different from the group’s previous more intense tracks. It was already No. 1 on SBS Inkigayo last week and will definitely challenge for the top spot next week

By: Dramabeans On this brisk fall day, our cast is dropped off at various locations in the Jirisan area (located in the southern region of Korea). Some of these businesses have been around for decades, and I love the little old lady who wrote herself a reminder on her palm. Basically, our cast is here to help promote these longstanding businesses as representatives in today’s Event Race.The good news is that our cast members won’t be going about it alone: Ji-hyo is joined by Super Junior’s Leeteuk (eee!) and Kyuhyun, the latter of which asks noona to pay attention to him, too. Gary is greeted by singers Bobby Kim and Jung In at the barber shop, and Haha and Suk-jin are joined by Brown Eyed Girls’ Narsha.Haha jokes that their combined age is over 100, and they settle for the team name “이따구[ee-ddah-gu],” the Gyeongsangdo satoori of the phrase “이따위 [ee-ddah-whi]” aka “this kind of” in English

10 Hunky Model-Turned-Actors

By in News posted Oct November 5th, 2014 No comments

Tis the year of model-turned-actors! They have been popping up everywhere, dominating our world on-and-off screen with their perfectly structured visuals, slim figures, and fantasy-boyfriend image! These model-turned-actors have achieved the trifecta of becoming the perfect celebrity.

We love them in pictorials and we love them even more on-screen playing our favorite characters. Here are 10 notable model-turned-actors!

Cha Seung Won

As one of the first models to become an actor, Cha Seung Won stands proud and tall amongst all model-actors with his impressive experience as both model and actor, which is why he had to be included in this list. He debuted in 1988 as a model and expanded his line of works to on-screen with the sitcom, "New York Story," in 1997

15 lovable K-Pop idol best friends

When life gets too stressful, it"s always nice to have a best friend who just gets you. The K-Pop world is definitely stress-inducing; and in the midst of paparazzi, rumors, crazy sasaeng fans, harsh netizen comments, and public misconceptions, some idols are lucky to have someone whom they can always count on to be on their side.

Check out these 15 idol best friends who are lucky to have each other through thick and thin!

Suzy and IU: Watermelon Sisters

Suzy and IU were not always close. Although the two were co-stars on the famous idol drama "Dream High", they were known to be pretty awkward around each other. That is until one fateful night, Suzy first approached her fellow K-Pop cutie by calling her and singing her happy birthday at 4AM

“Model-idols”: Impeccable acting and good looks

By in News posted Oct September 30th, 2014 No comments

They are good looking and great at acting. Actor-turned models are standing out. They are called "model-idols" because they are as popular as idols. They are Lee Jong-suk, Kim Woo-bin, Seong Joon, Ahn Jae-hyeon, Kim Yeong-kwang, Hong Jong-hyeon and Lee Seong-kyeong. It"s telling us a lot when more management agencies, who are putting weight on finding new talent, are also merging with model agencies.

- The top of the casting list, they are good looking and great actors

A drama planned for the end of the year failed to cast both Lee Jong-suk and Kim Woo-bin. Lee Jong-suk is starring in SBS "Pinocchio" coming in November and Kim Woo-bin is starring in movies "Twenty" and "The Technicians".

Ahn Jae-hyeon who starred in the drama "My Love from the Star" as Jeon Ji-hyeon"s brother, is starring in "Fashion King - Movie" and Lee Seong-kyeong who starred in "It"s Okay, That"s Love" as Lee Gwang-soo"s girlfriend, is also increasing her values

8 gorgeous Korean actresses in their 30s

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

It’s about time we show our love and respect for our favorite women in their 30s gracing our TV (or computer) screens with their beauty. Here are eight of those talented actresses who effortlessly prove that aging might be something to look forward to after all.

1. Choi Ji Woo

We start off strong, seeing as Choi Ji Woo is 38 and still wowing us to this day. Many fans know her from her emotional performance in Winter Sonata, but she can now be seen playing the titular character in the newly premiered The Suspicious Housekeeper.

2. Song Hye Kyo

Another actress well-known for her work in the seasonal Endless Love series, Song Hye Kyo is 31 and possibly—probably—even more beautiful than she was ten years ago

10 Couple photo shoots – the Good, the Bad, and the Errr..”s

By in News posted Oct August 14th, 2014 No comments

Celebrity couple photoshoots sometimes have us staring in envy or cringing away in embarrassment. Though points like backdrop, hair and makeup, concept, and photographers factor into the celebrity"s solo photoshoot, it"s a completely different story when celebrities pair up for couple shoots. It gets trickier because no matter how well one celebrity performs, if his partner doesn"t pull her own weight (or vice versa), the photos end up looking out of place and awkward.

The following are a series of celebrity couple pictorials. Some work, others don"t, and a few really don"t.

Sohee X T.O.P 
Sohee and T.O.P teamed up in this photo shoot for their "Reebok" endorsement. Dressed in monochrome colors and casual everyday staples, this couple looks chic without having to try

“1 Night 2 Days” Season 3 – Giving An Old Dog A Fresh Coat Of Paint

By in News posted Oct December 3rd, 2013 No comments

Disclaimer: The writer is not really an expert at anything much and is just a mere casual fan of “1 Night 2 Days.” The writer has been known to be rather weird and cynical at times. The writer’s opinions certainly DO NOT reflect the opinion of Soompi’s news team or Soompi as a whole.

I don’t tend to do a lot of these first impression articles. Variety Shows like “1 Night 2 Days” always tend to be slow burners and judging the merits of a show on a single episode is always bound to be a rather futile effort. It’s like looking at a new born baby and instantly saying that said baby will grow up to be a super model, get it wrong and you end up looking like a bit of a fool. Get it right, though, and you just look like a very lucky fool. But this is the internet and if there is one mode of communication that allows me to blabber randomly about something I’m interested in then this is it
