While we smile at the two main characters happy ending at the conclusion of every other rom-com, there’s always that little place in our hearts where we secretly hope that the girl would get with the second-lead.
Hit by the second-lead syndrome, we want to know which second-lead couple in popular rom-coms you rooting for. Let us know by voting below!
Yoon Ji Hoo (Kim Hyun Joong) – Geum Jan Di (Ku Hye Sun)
We’ll always remember Ji Hoo sunbae as the beautiful creature that knew he could go anywhere if he had a white sail and the wind to carry him.
While he appeared a bit cold at first in Boys Before Flowers, he was always watching over Geum Jan Di whenever she was in trouble (too many times to count) and played her prince on a white stallion when Goo Joon Pyo was being a butthole

A Pink’s “Mr. Chu” comes from outside of the top 10 and moves up 16 spots to become our new No. 1 song this week!
This song swept all the music shows last week and easily won over Lee Sun Hee’s “Meet Him Among Them.” Orange Caramel’s “Catallena” rounds out the all female top three this week.
“Mr. Chu” is the title track of A Pink’s 4th mini album, “Pink Blossom.” It is a cute pop dance song about the thrill of sharing the first kiss with one’s significant other. The various synth effects and the upbeat rhythm highlight the sweet and lovable qualities of A Pink. This is A Pink’s second No. 1 song on our chart as they did it last year with “NoNoNo.” Congratulations to A Pink.
Kim Yewon, actress and member of girl group Jewelry, was cast in the MBC weekend drama, “Hotel King.”
Kim Yewon recently made her small screen debut in MBC’s “Miss Korea,” which concluded earlier this February. She played Oh Ji Young’s (Lee Yeon Hee) colleague and had many opportunities to appear in front of the camera. However, the amount of her appearances drastically decreased midway of the drama and she dropped out before the drama ended.
She was going back and forth from her singer activities when she made her acting debut. Although she had a minor role, she prepared for the part thoroughly through doing character analysis. Nevertheless, she was not able to fully demonstrate her passion for acting.
While the drama was still ongoing, she appeared on MBC’s “Radio Star” and sent a video message asking the production staff of the drama to give her more camera time on the drama and showed a strong will
Soompi covers BoA’s highly anticipated “Make Your Move” featuring “Dancing with the Stars” dancer Derek Hough!
Certainly without a dull moment, “Make Your Move” kicks off high energy, never once missing a chance to showcase its overwhelmingly talented stars. With a starkly different image than that of her old school idol persona, BoA plays an independent, adventurous, and effortlessly sexy Aya, a Zainichi Korean woman set on following her dreams with her fusion hip-hop Taiko group COBU. It is when Donny, played by Derek Hough, shows up and takes her head on in a club tap dancing battle that her world is pulled asunder. “Make Your Move” is a modern-day Romeo & Juliet (but much happier and definitely not sleep-inducing), jam packed with familial drama, intricate dance sequences, and a soundtrack appealing to all audiences
This is how boys became men. With their baby face charms 20-something male actors are partnering up with actresses who are significantly older and displaying romance that is more intense than anything we’ve imagined. Their sometimes innocent and sometimes reckless ways of expressing love cause female viewers to have butterflies in their stomachs.
One of the hottest “younger man” is Yoo Ah In in JTBC’s “Secret Love Affair.” He portrays a character names Lee Sun Jae who is a piano prodigy. He and actress Kim Hee Ae, who is 19 years his senior, continue their love story in the drama. Due to the fact that the set up in the drama is adultery and because the there is a big age gap between the characters, it seemed the couple would not seem well suited for each other. However, their exceptional acting skills connect the gap displaying an excellent chemistry
Kim Hyun Joong revealed that he wants to act out realistic characters in the future.
In an interview that took place in a café near Samcheong-dong, Kim Hyung Joong shook his head and he claimed that sweet and elegant characters do not suit him very much.
Kim Hyun Joong recently transformed into a macho man ‘Shin Jung Tae’ in KBS 2TV’s The Age of Feeling, setting aside his ‘sugar boy’ image from Boys Over Flowers and Playful Kiss.
When asked if he will take on another ‘flower boy’ role in the future, he answered, “I don’t think I’ll ever wear a uniform. It doesn’t look good on me anymore and I would feel ashamed. I was able to do it inBoys Over Flowers because of the storyline and I looked younger back then, but not anymore

Yiruma, the internationally-renowned pianist-composer from South Korea was in Singapore to perform publicly for the very first time at The Star Performing Arts Center on April 5. All 5,000 tickets were completely sold out. I was so lucky to be able to watch him perform his beautiful melodies; it was even more meaningful because that day was my birthday!
The soft-spoken pianist has a great sense of humor, surprisingly. After opening the concert with “May Be“, Yiruma stood up to greet the 5,000 strong audience.
“Hi Singapore, hi everyone. Wow! This is really wonderful, it’s very scary. It’s scary, but it’s very exciting to be here in Singapore. Are there any Koreans here? Annyeonghaseyo! I’m composer and pianist Yiruma, it’s so nice to meet you. Thank You!”
“Xie xie (Thank you, in Mandarin), I started with the song called ‘May Be

Lim Chang Jung repeats as No. 1 for the second week in a row with “Ordinary Song.” In another wide open week last week in which different songs were winning on various music shows, “Ordinary Song” was clearly the most consistent song amongst music charts and was able to win again. Congratulations to Lim Chang Jung.
Moving up three spots to No. 2 is Orange Caramel’s “Catallena.” This song dropped to No. 5 last week and was able to rebound three spots up to second this week, just ten points below “Ordinary Song.” Historically, Orange Caramel’s songs have done well and also fared better than After School’s songs on our chart. This time is no exception. Let see if “Catallena” can move up to the top spot next week.
There are four new songs in the top 10, all by non-idol artists
In preparation for their Spring program reorganizations, KBS has been airing several pilot variety shows over the past couple weeks. One of those pilot shows happens to be “I’m a Man,” KBS’s attempt to field a show that takes advantage of the recent explosion in popularity of “risque” and “honest” talk shows like “Witch Hunt” and “War of Words“. The interesting twist here is that they got the “National MC,” Yoo Jae Suk, to lead the show, who, on first impressions, seems to be a rather peculiar choice for a show that’s meant to be all about being provocative and direct. Does the show offer an interesting twist to whole risque talk show genre or is KBS and Yoo Jae Suk just a bit too conservative and modest to do the concept justice?
Defining the concept
As part of the reorganizations, each broadcasters fields various pilot shows to gauge viewer interest

Kim Hyun Joong revealed his thoughts on having competed with Kim Soo Hyun through the dramas airing on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
In an interview that took place in a café near Samcheong-dong, Kim Hyun Joong confessed how he felt when he compared the viewership ratings of KBS 2TV’s The Age of Feeling and SBS’s You Who Came From the Stars.
About acting as ‘Shin Jung Tae’ in The Age of Feeling, he said, “I did everything that I could. I poured my everything in to the point that I wouldn’t have made it to 25th episode.”
Despite Kim Hyun Joong’s enthusiastic performance, The Age of Feeling recorded a relatively low viewership rating, because it faced You Who Came From the Stars, which reached 30% ratings
