When asked which of her co-stars she most enjoyed working with, Park Shin Hye mentioned the two stars fans most liked seeing her act with. She talked about her "You"re Beautiful" co-star Jang Geun Suk and her "The Heirs" co-star Lee Min Ho.
The actress discussed them during an interview she did for @Star magazine. The magazine"s November issue, featuring her interview and photo shoot, will be released on Oct. 20.
The interviewer shared the saying that every actor who works with Park Shin Hye becomes a Hallyu star.
"Why do you think that is," the interviewer asked.
The modest actress said she was honored to hear things like that but she refused to take any credit for their stardom.
"I think it"s because I made the other person stand out," said Park Shin Hye
So many dramas seem to feature a scene in which the actors take a long leisurely stroll toward their goal, which is usually the woman they are about to confess their feelings to. It often looks as if the actors are strolling down the catwalk. But there"s a reason for that. So many k-drama actors started out as models and their long lanky good looks are part of the appeal.
A good example is the scene in "Personal Taste" where Lee Min Ho finally decides to tell Son Ye Jin that it"s "game over." He took so long to stroll over to her that viewers got a good look at every detail of the glossy suit he wore.
Models becoming actors is not a new trend. Song Seung Hoon, So Ji Sub, Cha Seung Won and Hyun Bin also started out as models. So did Jang Geun Suk, who began modeling as a child
Lee Jong Suk insists that he is not dating miss A singer and actress Suzy Bae. It would be nearly impossible because he never met her.
So, how did this dating rumor happen?
It started with an online post claiming that the Dispatch had photos of the actors together and that they would be released the next day. The rumors naturally spread because the Dispatch is well known for outing dating stars and the celebrities in question are very popular.
But the rumors were not true. The next morning the Dispath denied them saying that they would only be posting photographs of an old photo shoot of Suzy"s.
But now that the rumors existed the agencies of both stars felt it necessary to deny them.
A representative from Wellmade Entertainment said that they had confirmed that Lee Jong Suk did not know the actress personally
K-drama cameos are fun little surprises for fans. When you recognize an unexpected face on the screen, it’s like being part of a secret drama club! Here (in no particular order) are just a few of the best K-drama cameos:
1. Yoon Eun Hye, Personal Taste, episode 8
This cameo is for every person who has ever wished that Yoon Eun Hye and Lee Min Ho would share the screen in a romantic drama. Sadly, Eun Hye was only onscreen for a few minutes as Lee Min Ho’s ex.
(Fun fact: Kim Nam Gil also had an unscripted cameo in this drama when he happened to be passing by the filming site and agreed to sit in as a patron in a coffee shop.)
2. Kim Hyun Joong, Dream High, episode 1
What better way to lend legitimacy to the premise of a prestigious performing arts school than to claim Kim Hyun Joong as a former student? If only he had stayed long enough to sing a song with the other students!
K-dramas don’t usually do second seasons or sequels, but that doesn’t mean there haven’t been some on-screen pairings that demand an encore. Here are eight couples that shared crackling chemistry the first time around, and we want to see them pair up again on the small screen. A girl can dream, right?
1. Bromance of the Century: Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin
In School 2013, Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin showed what high school friendship is all about (hint: it’s a rocky road). I’d love to see them pair up again. Whether it be love triangle, love square, love pentagram, or sibling pairing, I am sure their bromantic chemistry would again steal the show.
2. My Personal Preference: Son Ye Jin and Lee Min Ho
Personal Taste is an apt title to me, as I so enjoyed this K-drama
BEST BROMANCES 9 Bromances that tugged at our heartstrings
The bromance is just one among the large number of tropes in K-Dramas - the bond between two or more men that really helps define their characters. Sometimes, it takes a blow because of the romance, as the third member of the inevitable triangle feels resentful. Other times, it"s just a side story that"s sweet for the audience to watch. Whether the bromance is endearing or edgy and angsty, no one can deny that the bromance is an essential part of K-Dramas. TRASH & BINGGEURE
Very much big brother (Trash
) and little brother (Binggeure
), and complete bromance territory. They even had a kissing scene (pictured above) that, um, had an interesting off-screen story... "We got the okay on the first try
," said Baro

Not one for self-reflection, Chang-min’s mom threatens to have Jin-hee fired and her tantrum escalates until she slaps Jin-hee in the face.

I did not watch every single drama that aired in Korea in 2013, but out of the ones I had watched, there was one that I was obsessed with that I already wrote about last week and one that I still don"t know how I managed to finish.

25. SHINee "Dream Girl"
SM EntertainmentRelease Date:
February 19th, 2013
SHINee"s been a busy, busy group this year, knocking out comeback after comeback with very little time for breaks in between- so much so that it seems like "Dream Girl", their first video of 2013, came out much earlier than it actually did. The video features all five guys navigating a strange, topsy-turvy dream world while chasing a faceless girl in a painting through rooms where time and gravity have no meaning

During the interview, Park Shin Hye chose Lee Min Ho as her best drama partner so far.

Kim Ji Won took on the spoiled rich girl role as Rachel Yoo in “The Heirs,” a departure from previous roles playing good girls. In an interview with My Daily, she talked about her role in the drama, as well as shared her thoughts on the drama pairings.
Kim Ji Won watched writer Kim Eun Sook’s previous works to prepare for her character, and thought that Park Min Sook (Kim Jung Nan) from “A Gentleman’s Dignity” would be what Rachel would be like when she grew up.
In person, Kim Ji Won is the exact opposite of Rachel Yoo. While Rachel Yoo comes straight to the point, and always says what she wants to say, Kim Ji Won comes across as being surprisingly shy. She doesn’t get angry easily, and she thinks about saying something for a while before she says it, so she says she’s missed the opportunity to speak up many times
