This year two k-drama actors faced major scandals. One of those actors, Kim Hyun Joong, has stepped back from the public eye. Accused of hitting his girlfriend, the actor still faces a police investigation, even though the charges were dropped. The other, Lee Byung Hun, is focusing on his work in the U.S., having lost many advertising deals in Korea. Lee Byung Hun was the victim of a blackmail attempt. While he is the victim in this case, he has apologized for any of his own actions that might have led him to be so vulnerable.
Both actors sustained damage to their careers. But how long will the effects of the scandal last? The only way to guess is to examine past scandals and see how long the negative effects lasted.
Two recent examples are Park Shi Hoo and Park Si Yeon
Yoo-jin’s mother hears that her ex-husband is on his way to see Yoo-jin’s performance. Knowing that Dad’s presence is bound to mess with Yoo-jin, she decides to prevent his attendance, no matter what.With several hours till showtime, both Yoo-jin and Nae-il have dress rehearsals to attend. But when the gang drops by the dressing room to check on Nae-il, they find that she’s locked herself in the room and is refusing to perform.Yoo-jin connects the dots, thinking of Nae-il’s outburst about being pushed to play, and asks for some privacy. Once alone in the hallway, he speaks through the door to Nae-il, who’s huddled and shaking inside. KBS Drama Cantabile Tomorrow episode 11 Recap and Screenshots
Yoo-jin explains that he understands now why she was in such an unusually good mood today—that today would be the first time they’re standing on the same stage, even if it wasn’t in the same performance
Lee Kwang Soo is getting good at filling up his schedule. As well as his regular appearances on the variety show "Running Man" the actor and entertainer is penciling in plenty of drama and film roles. He recently finished playing Park Soo Kwang, a character with Tourette"s Syndrome in the drama "It"s Okay, It"s Love," as well as taking on a two-episode role in the drama special "Secret Love." Last year he had roles in two films, "Confession" and "Five Siblings In Deoksu Village."
This year he will play a boy who becomes a fish in an upcoming fantasy film titled "Mutant."
One of his co-stars in this film will be his good friend, actress Park Bo Young, who was last seen in "Wolf Boy." The other will be Lee Chun Hee, who played the "Master" in the recent drama "Dating Agency Cyrano
Much to Yoo-jin’s shock, the S Orchestra’s performance of “Mambo” is good, and so is the new guy Yoon-hoo, who’s acting as their emergency conductor. In flashback, we see him asking the orchestra to give him a chance to conduct, since he’s performed this piece before and has memorized the score. They look hesitant, but they’re out of options so they agree; and as we’ve already seen, the result is a roaring success.Yoon-hoo is playful and expressive up there on the conductor’s platform, performing as much as the rest of them are and leading them like the life of the party. It’s adorable to watch, and in the back of the auditorium, Yoo-jin’s cloud just gets darker and darker.Streseman seems to have been waiting for this reaction, as he simply stands there praising Yoon-hoo. He looks intrigued the minute Yoo-jin retorts that he’s
the star today
It’s a grand entrance for a gorgeous woman, whom we’ll come to know as SA-RA (Han Ye-seul
), who walks down a street and turns heads left and right with her stunning appearance. Everywhere she goes she attracts admiring glances and drops jaws; she explains that she’s an actress who’s just come back to Korea after working in the U.S. This makes sense to everyone who sees her, and she gets the royal treatment.She gets her fortune told by a face reader, who is awed by the interesting combination of fates she holds in her hands (er, face): Not only is she an uncommon beauty, she also has the fortune of a military general and might even save the nation. That is, if she steers clear of her two pitfalls: the need to get involved in matters, and bad guys.Sa-ra starts to clue into the uneasy feeling that she’s being followed, and this is how we get our introduction to HAN TAE-HEE (Joo Sang-wook
, whose combination of dorky and heo-dang antics I have really missed, and love to see back in action here)
Today’s cold open: On a sunny day at the park, a man approaches a woman sitting alone from behind. Reaching into his jacket pocket, he slowly extends his other hand towards her…She jumps in alarm and breathes a sigh of relief, recognizing him. It turns out the man was reaching for a small box—namely, a diamond ring. His girlfriend (?) simply asks him to ask nothing before walking away.At the same time some distance away, a masked man in a hat loads his rifle. He fires the weapon and the woman falls, dead. Another shot rings out, followed by another, and then another.Elsewhere, a peddler puts in a panicked call to the police to report some “strange men” who broke in and beat up him and his men. Those so-called “strange men” are none other than Team Crazy Dogs, and the peddler hands the phone over so that Goo-tak can tell the dispatcher that all is well here
It has been a year of k-drama reunions with some k-drama stars such as Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara reuniting after more than a decade. Hyun Bin and actress Han Ji Min are considering an acting reunion, but their reunion may take place only months after the last time they acted together.
Hyun Bin and Han Ji Min worked together in the film "The Fatal Encounter," playing a king and a queen. But despite their titles, they were not a royal couple. Nor were their characters nice to each other. Hyun Bin played King Jeongjo, a king under repeated threat of assassination, and Han Ji Min played his grandfather"s queen consort, Queen Jeongsun.
If she takes the role of Hyun Bin"s girlfriend in the upcoming drama, "Dr Jekyl, Mr. Hyde," she will have to be nicer to him
Shin-hee and Kim Jeong-min underwent a pregnancy treatment for an investigation.
Soo-jin (Shin-ee) and Ji-hoon (Kim Jeong-min) started the "7th Ward Investigation" to capture a criminal named Dong-seok.
Investigator Soo-jin is a whiz at undercover investigations. She successfully managed to clean up a gang organization, dressed up as a coffee shop woman. Her chief Lee (Lee Byeong-joon) then told her to undergo a pregnancy treatment with her husband Ji-hoon. He wanted her to get close to Seo-hee (Shim Eun-jin), Dong-seok"s girlfriend who was hospitalized in the 7th ward. He emphasized it was something only Soo-jin and Ji-hoon could do.
Soo-jin didn"t react well to this. She said, "What is he asking us to do? Is he crazy? Why does the squad plan our family?" Lee went to Ji-hoon and persuaded him
The good triumphed over evil in the end.
On the final episode of the MBC drama "Jang Bo-ri Is Here!", Yeon Min-jeong (Lee Yoo-ri) stayed with Do Hye-ok (Hwang Yeong-hee) and Jang Bo-ri (Oh Yeon-seo) at Bisulchae, teaching students and living happily with Bi-dan (Kim Ji-yeong).
Min-jeong and Bo-ri took the long way round to get to their places. Min-jeong ran a soup house with Hye-ok after her sentences was over. Min-jeong curled her hair to look like Bo-ri and started delivering food all over the market. Hye-ok didn"t recognize Min-jeong but Min-jeong took care of her in terms of washing away her sins.
Bo-ri started teaching and continued to raise Bi-dan. She called Kim In-hwa (Kim Hye-ok) to Bisulchae and said, "I"ve found my mother at last"
Lee"s first leading role was in 2009"s "Shining Inheritance" as the quintessential prickly male lead, Seon Woo-hwan. Lee showed an affinity for the camera even though he tended to overact, especially during scenes of anger. This habit trended through many of his dramas save for his latest, "You"re Surrounded". The emotions are clear, but seem overwrought, as if geared for the live stage rather than in front of a camera. This is most evident in "Shining Inheritance" and tones down in each subsequent leading role that he landed. Again, it is Lee"s earnest portrayals of his characters that make him so well-liked despite any flaws he may have as an actor. It"s his appeal that keeps the role offers coming."My Girlfriend is a Gumiho" from 2010 was Lee"s real breakthrough as an actor. He worked beside from the very nuanced actress Sin Min-ah from whom he learned a lot
No Min Woo plays the very pretty but quirky father of Park Si Yeon"s baby in the drama "The Greatest Marriage." Before that he played a coldhearted and decidedly evil looking-pop star in "God"s Gift - 14 Days." His pop star character was the reason that Lee Bo Young"s young daughter ran away. While trying to meet her favorite star, she was kidnapped.
His character in "The Greatest Marriage" is a little goofy and a lot more likeable.
According to No Min Woo, his "Greatest Marriage" food writer character Park Tae Yeon is a "free spirit," someone who lives life on a dare.
Here some more facts you may want to know about him.
