Bah, I’m not ready for new dramas to start yet, but here they come anyway. It’s like time has a mind of its own, all inconsiderate-like. KBS’s brand new Wednesday-Thursday drama Pretty Man is getting ready to premiere this week, and has released posters and more stills. The 16-episode romantic comedy stars Jang Geun-seok (Love Rain) as the prettiest man who ever was, and IU (You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin) as the Plain Jane who loves him from afar.
Jang Geun-seok plays a man who discovered as early as kindergarten that he was prettier than most and could get special treatment because of it. During his school years he never once had to bring a lunch to school, and now only has to glance at designer things in stores before women throw presents his way
Today’s opening is a mostly recycled version of last week’s super-long intro of Ryu Hyun-jin (LA Dodgers). There are couple of adorable moments at the start, however, like how Gary shoots Ji-hyo cutesy heart baseball signals and Ji-hyo’s flubbed pitch.
The cast marvels at the baseball star’s sweet digs, joking that they should have treated him better during his last visit. Then they collectively cringe when Hyun-jin shouts out the corny magical incantation.
This time, Hyun-jin’s superpower gives him control of the cast’s future, but mostly it means that he’ll be issuing the missions today. So it’s likely he won’t even show up until much later or possibly even next week
Hot on the heels of Kim Soo-hyun’s first stills from the drama You From Another Star, we have leading lady Jeon Ji-hyun in hers, playing a “Hallyu goddess.” It’s basically Jeon playing herself, and in that case I really hope the drama takes a fun approach with the meta. Where’s the fun in casting a top star to play a top star if you don’t poke fun at the whole top star image?
In the photo directly below, Jeon is pictured with Choi Min (My Love Madame Butterfly, Pasta), who plays her fiancé… who’ll get shunted to the side when the star falls for the 400-year-old alien (Kim Soo-hyun) who has lived in Korea from the Joseon era through to modern times.
It’s hard to believe it’s been fourteen years since Jeon was in her last drama (1999′s Happy Together), or maybe the part that’s strange is how she’s remained so visible and famous all this time, only doing a movie every two or three years (such is the power of CF queendom)
At the crosswalk. ES pulls out of Tan’s hold. Tan throws away YD’s hand. ES says to Tan, “I can’t do this anymore. I’m sorry.” Tan replies, “I know it’s hard. I’m sorry. I can’t promise that it will be better from now on.” Tan reaches out his hand towards ES. “Still, let’s go. Holding hands.” YD: “Don’t hold his hand.”
ES puts her hand in his, and also brings her other hand up, cupping Tan’s, as if in a handshake. Tan realizes what she is doing at first and whispers, “Don’t do this,” but he gets louder and louder. ES tearfully responds, “We’ve come far already. Let’s not go any further.” Tan yells again, “Don’t do this,” but ES drops Tan’s hand. She leaves, saying let’s just see each other around.
Just the two of them, YD says to Tan, “You still make people leave

Shin is shocked to see Mi-rae dine at the same table as Chairman Lee and whom he now knows to be her grandson, Se-joo, who returns a tiny smirk.
He’s still trying to piece it all together when Se-joo calls to confirm his family lineage and apologize for keeping him in the dark. Shin asks if Mi-rae knows this truth as well, to which Se-joo smiles, amused to hear Shin suddenly speak to him in jondaemal. He asks that Shin keep it under wraps for now.
Shin tears into Ajumma Mi-rae afterward—is his future demise due to being fired by Se-joo and therefore blacklisted from the industry? He accuses her of working with Se-joo to orchestrate this scenario tonight, saying she could have just told him, but why did she let him be humiliated like this?
“Would you have believed me if I told you?” Ajumma retorts
“Infinity Challenge” has decided to stop the digital distribution of “I Got C” that has recently been under scrutiny for alleged plagiarism.
The producer of the show delivered an official message through the show’s homepage on November 13, “Hello, this is ‘Infinity Challenge.’ I apologize for causing the viewers worry over the controversy that team Geumary (Park Myung Soo and Primary) has been swept in because of the song they performed at MBC ‘Infinity Challenge – 2013 Freedom Road Music Festival‘ on November 2.

Looks like uri Tan did not get fooled by Choi Young Do (Kim Woo Bin) at all and after ‘…’ (not sure what happens); the two love birds are totally in love and share their first lovey-dovey moment!
This scene was filmed on 8th October at Paju. The casts and crews were amazed by the beautiful location but quickly return to focus on delivering a great romantic performance when the camera started rolling. They were reportedly able to create romantic atmosphere that will cause butterflies to appear in the viewers’ stomach. *Ahem* – I shall be the judge of that!

SHINee’s Taemin recently revealed that he gifted his parents with a lovely new home.
The star made a guest appearance on KBS 2TV’s “1 vs. 100” and talked about what had changed the most since he debuted with group SHINee five years ago.
He said, “I think the greatest change I have experienced was being able to help my parents out financially.” He continued, “I was able to buy them a home in Cheongdam-dong, and I was even able to get my mom a purse. Although I have bought them a car, they just look at it from the balcony. Those moments were heart-warming and will always stay with me.”
He also talked about other changes since his debut, adding, “Since we had promoted heavily abroad, we decided to focus on staying in the country for our activities
First set of stills released today are fun-filled behind the scenes pictures from the main casts of The Heirs. Ahhhh I love BTS pictures, they never fail to make me smile and brighten up my day. The Heirs team are really busy these days however everyone is always energetic and demonstrate strong team work. Off the set, the actors usually gather together and chat up a storm. Let’s look forward to tomorrow night’s The Heirs. I can’t wait to see that scene where Tan kicks Young Do into the pool! HAHAHA! ROFL!
Lee Min Ho‘s professionalism is well-known on the set. He always has someone filming his acting with a camcorder and he will check them in between takes to see the results of his acting. I believe that is how he had improved so tremendously well and quick over the years
Ohhh exciting! More stills before tonight’s Mi Rae’s Choice! FNC Entertainment and TopStarNews have released more photo stills of Kim Shin (Lee Dong Gun) and Park Se Joo (Jung Yong Hwa) for us. I say it is about time because I was beginning to wonder who is the real male lead in the drama. I swear I was starting to see a trend whereby most of the stills are of Park Se Joo rather than Kim Shin. I supposed the production team knows what sells and even TopStarNews editor has mentioned that both Lee Min Ho and Jung Yong Hwa‘s posts brought in the most views for their articles as well as most messages left on the message board.
Suddenly one of Park Se Joo’s line flashes through my mind: “This is business”. Hahahahahaha! Indeed it is from the looks of it

Kdrama "Answer Me 1994" Episode 7 Recap by DramaBeans
It’s a sweltering summer in 1994, and Na-jung has a new part-time job working the counter at a chicken and burger joint near campus. She’s surprisingly sharp and good with numbers, as she tells her customer the exact price difference between ordering his burgers and colas separately instead of as sets.
Someone pages her, and it turns out to be Chilbongie calling from baseball practice. He comes up with the adorably lame excuse that he felt like eating burgers, and wants to know if her store delivers.
She says he’d have to order something like twenty of them, and he happily orders fifty. Ermagerd, he’s so cute I can’t stand it.
So Na-jung and her co-worker (the computer science sunbae) head over to the field that night with fifty burgers in tow
