Even though it cannot repeat the perfect score of last week, the duet “Some” between Soyu and Junggigo is No. 1 for the third straight week. This song just keeps piling up music show wins. Even before very strong competitions, this week “Some” still wins on KBS Music Bank. Odds don’t favor this song to be No. 1 again next week since we have a trio of major artists coming back and eyeing the top spot (more on that below). But “Some” has been incredibly durable in popularity and may surprise again next week.
We have five new songs in the top 10 this week. Just below “Some” is our highest new song. Moving up 17 spots to No. 2 is Sunmi’s new hit “Full Moon.” Last year, Sunmi successfully came back as a solo artist with the chart topping hit “24 Hours
Yoo In Na has been keeping herself busy.

Many actors and actresses are quite envious of Yoo In Na’s filmography, which includes dramas such as Secret Garden, The Greatest Love, You’re the Best Lee Soon Shin and Queen In Hyun’s Man, which have earned much popularity from the public.
And now adding You Who Came From the Stars to her resume, Yoo In Na has come to own a killer filmography.

Having turned just 27 this year (Korean age), Kim Soo Hyun has become one of Korea’s representative and irreplaceable actors.
From his early project Giant to the most recent syndrome-causing You Who Came From the Stars, the actor has been setting records with his successful projects.
With numerous places sending out love calls, Kim Soo Hyun turned all of this success to those around him and remained humble.
Having just completed filming, without having chance to look around at the explosive response surrounding him, Kim Soo Hyun looked rather relaxed and calm. One could see the actor has finally left behind ‘Do Min Jun,’ the character who struggled with deep emotions, from the looks of ease on his face.
-How would you compare Do Min Jun to Kim Soo Hyun?

EPISODE 15 RECAP by Dramabeans
Even after Shinichi receives one of Baek-san’s finishing moves, he continues to fight until a group of Kaya’s henchmen come to fetch him on her orders. Shinichi refuses at first, wanting to finish the fight, but acquiesces immediately when the henchmen show him a mysterious black bag.
Baek-san acts all friendly to Jung-tae after the fight, though Jung-tae’s not too keen on returning the kindness. He promises to repay the debt he owes Baek-san (for saving him from Shinichi), but there’s something darker in that promise—he’s talking revenge.
But Baek-san, none the wiser, tells him that he owes him nothing: “Hwangbang will always protect you.” Oh, you mean when Hwangbang isn’t trying to kill him?
Kaya gets another chance to ask Leader Seol who killed her mother, but instead of answering her directly he tells her about her mother; the way she lived and the way she was loved at Club Shanghai, even though she was the highest female on the yakuza food chain

In the woods, a SWAT team sweeps the area with dogs as a man flees for cover.
Inside the presidential villa, Security Team Leader Ham sits with his shirt off after bandaging a wound in his arm. He growls that the suspect in the assassination attempt against the president has been spotted: “It’s Secret Service agent Han Tae-kyung.”
