Actress Honey Lee has posted a picture of herself with musician Yoon Do Hyun after watching his performance in the musical “Once.”
In a message posted along with the photo, she also compared the Korean and Broadway versions of “Once,” saying, “Musican ‘Once’ and my older brother Yoon Do Hyun are the best! It’s been too long since I’ve spent time with my family and seen a stimulating musical. But why is this version of “Once” better than the one I saw in New York? Language, maybe? Looks like Broadway has nothing on Korean musicals anymore. I was in awe the whole time. A big round of applause to the actors and staff for their effort in making such a great show.”
Hyun Bin is seen passionately concentrating on his “Hyde Jekyll, Me” scripts in behind-the-scenes stills released by the show. In “Hyde Jekyll, Me,” which aired its first episode on January 21, Hyun Bin returns to television with his first drama in five years. He essentially plays two roles as his character has two personalities. As he plays the two roles side by side, his acting abilities can be easily seen.
In stills from the filming set, Hyun Bin is immersed in his scripts, intently concentrating with a serious and exacting expression. It can be seen that he’s putting in a lot of effort to perfectly pull off a character with two personalities. His unending focus to his acting has the crew calling him “Hyun-tail”, a portmanteau of his name, Hyun Bin, and the word “detail.” For the delicate acting required to portray this character, he is putting in exceptional care and hard work. To make sure he doesn’t miss any small detail, he is ceaselessly concentrating on his scripts and rehearsing with his co-stars. The staff has been impressed seeing all the passion and effort put into his acting.

YoonA was reported by Chinese media to have been in a dangerous situation while filming for her current Korean-Chinese drama "God of War Zhao Yun" that could have potentially resulted in a large injury. Luckily, she was revealed to have escaped any real harm.
It was revealed that not too long ago, she had to film a scene in which she rode on the back of a horse in front of her co-star Lin Gengxin when the horse lost its senses, almost shaking off YoonA who lost her grip and almost fell down to the ground, which could have resulted in serious injuries. Luckily, Lin Gengxin, who was sitting behind her on the horse, grabbed the surprised idol, but it was reported by the media that she burst into tears due to the surprising near accident and was unable to calm herself down.

In the show, Sung Si Kyung told Kim Sung Ryung, “I get asked a lot if you are actually pretty.” “How do you respond?” she asked immediately.
“I tell them you’re pretty. There are also those who ask if I would date you if you were my age, and I tell them I would,” he said. At that, Kim Sung Ryung poked fun at Sung Si Kyung, saying, “People I know say that it must be great to work with Sung Si Kyung, and I just say, ‘Why? He’s mean to me all the time.’”

It seems there is finally some resolution to the Lee Byung-hun scandal that erupted in August of 2014. On Thursday January 15, a Seoul court sentenced Kim Da-hee and Lee Ji-yeon to one year, and one year two months of jail time, respectively, for their participation in the blackmailing of actor Lee Byung-hun.
The scandal began in August of 2014 when Lee Byung-hun turned to law enforcement claiming he was being blackmailed for a sum of 5 billion Korean Won by GLAM member Da-hee and model Lee Ji-yeon. The two women had supposedly threatened to release a video/cell phone recording of the three drinking together while carrying on conversations perceived as too lewd and inappropriate for a married man and two women nearly half his age. Lee Byung-hun’s representatives did not deny that Lee was familiar with the two women, but claimed their relationship was purely as acquaintances who met through mutual friends.
Actor Yoon Sang Hyun and singer songwriter MayBee were spotted at the Incheon International Airport on the night of January 14. They were reportedly on their way to shoot their wedding pictorial in Hawaii.

These two met through a blind date in April of last year and officially became a couple in July of the same year. After eight months of dating, they became engaged in November 2014. The two will wed in February 8.
After rising as a superstar in 2008 through the popular drama “Queen ofHousewives,” Yoon Sang Hyun also appeared as a cameo in the currently widely loved SBS drama “Pinocchio.” As for MayBee, she is mostly known for writing several famous songs including Lee Hyori‘s legendary single “10 Minutes.”
Putting his past and current project against each other, Hyun Bin compared Secret Garden and Hyde, Jekyll, Me.
On January 15, SBS′ Hyde, Jekyll, Me held its press conference at the Imperial Palace Hotel in Nonhyun-dong, where Hyunbin compared acting as a man with multiple personality disorder and acting as a woman.
After acting as a woman in Secret Garden, Hyun Bin stated, "Acting as a woman was hard too. Shall I say it made me cringe? Although it was that way on the set, I have to say it was a lot more comfortable then than now."
"Back then, I had someone that I could study. I was able to see Ra Im in front of me and see certain points about her character, so it wasn′t that hard," said Hyun Bin. "But now, I think the difference is that I have to express everything based on only my imagination."
