A summer baby for Seo Min Jung

Seo Min Jung is pregnant! (She’s reportedly five months along and expecting in the summer.)

The actress was married last August to a Korean-American dentist and has since removed herself from the entertainment sphere, living with her husband in New York. Seo is most well-known for her role as the cute and klutzy teacher on 2007’s very popular family sitcom Unstoppable High Kick, who shared a (sorta) “loveline” with up-and-coming heartthrob Jung Il Woo — whose character was a high school student ten years her junior. (I admit, their “they can’t really go there… can they?” storyline was what kept my interest going in the sitcom.)

Speaking of whom, the other High Kick-ers are all busy with their own careers, particularly the young talents who shot to fame as a result of the series. Checking in with the rest of the cast:

Jung Il Woo recently started his university life and just shot a spread for Vogue Girl’s March issue, sporting his trademark sensitive-pretty-boy image. (I always thought it was interesting how his character was such a rebel, and how it worked despite his pretty looks. Damn he’s got some great skin.) His most recent project was the omnibus (multi-vignette) film My Love, which also starred Lee Yeon Hee and Uhm Tae Woong, among others.

Meanwhile, baby-faced actor Kim Hye Sung, who played Jung Il Woo’s brother in High Kick, now takes on a gay role opposite Lee Hyun Jin in the queer film Boy Meets Boy. Notably, both lead actors have no dialogue and act purely in gestures and looks. The concept worked extremely well in Kim Ki-duk’s 3 Iron; let’s see if it works here.

Park Min Young, who played empty-headed Yumi, recently shot a photo spread showing a newer, more mature (read: sexay) image, and is now being compared with pop group Sugar’s Hwang Jung Eum, who also revealed a new photo spread showing a new, glamorous image. Naturally, whenever two things share even the smallest similarity, netizens will flock to pit one against the other in some kind of pointless manufactured faceoff.

Kim Bum will be playing Song Seung Heon’s younger counterpart in the upcoming MBC drama East of Eden.

And Koyote singer Shinji has a duet on the new album for H-Eugene, an R&B-style ballad called “남이라고” (Calling me a stranger).

I've met her!!! Her husband goes to my church (아름다운 교회)! :D

And by "met" I mean was within 2 feet of her, haha!

I'm not very comfortable speaking in Korean so I didn't talk to her, but plenty of my friends have, and she seems like a really nice, laid-back person.

Gosh I just realize how much I like the cast of UHK. I wish each of them the best and, in the case of the ones still acting, better and better projects in the future! (for me to indulge in of course!)

thats great for kim hyesung. he should really break way from his cute image and being in a queer movie, that is being directed by the same guy who directed teh infamous no regret, should be a honor. i can't wait. thanks, javabeans.

Sorry not to comment on the article (although I do read your updates everyday javabeans!) but on the post by shro that says 'infamous no regret'. Why is it infamous? I've watched that movie and really liked it and can't think of a reason why it would be 'infamous'.

Oooh (and awww) hope for the best!

Boy Meets Boy? Isn't that a book that's ALSO about a gay boy (his love life, friendship, etc. I liked it)? Oh ho, coincidence?

*off topic, this is about the site layout*

i just realized.. would it be possible to move all the ads-related widgets to the same side? that way, there's not some here and there interrupting other more important links i guess...

also, this is just my own personal opinion.. but i think it would be cool (perhaps more organized?) if the order of one of the sides was something like this: search box > navigate > recapped series > archives > categories > recent posts. And then the other side can be: users currently online > RSS feed > buy me a cuppa joe > support S2 > linky > ads > ads > ads.

also some of the links under "navigate" are repeats of your tabs on the top of the site. does that make it redundant?

hope my opinion helps in some way :]
