News bites: December 3, 2016


Jung Il-woo, Seo In-gook

  • Noooooo! Jung Il-woo (Cinderella and the Four Knights) plans to make good on his announcement regarding military service at a fan meeting last week, and he’s indicated he will enlist in mid-December. [Herald]
  • Not Seo In-gook (Shopping King Louis) too! While the date hasn’t been specified, in a recent interview Seo spoke about what he looks forward to in his thirties: “In art, in music, in everything, I think the more you experience, the more people can empathize with you. If I enter the army, I’ll experience so much.” He went on, “Of course, since [army life] isn’t something I’ve tried, I could make a mistake or it might not go very well, but I think there are lessons to be learned even from those mistakes.” [Seoul Economy]

  • Jo Jung-seok, Jin Ki-joo

  • I’m loving the skillful usage of cameos in Legend of the Blue Sea and I’m especially looking forward to this next one: Jo Jung-seok (Jealousy Incarnate) will make an appearance to support his agency sunbae Jeon Ji-hyun in Episode 7. How fitting that his guest spot follows the appearance of Park Jin-joo (Nurse Oh to his Hwa-shin) in Episode 6. [Sports Chosun]
  • Jin Ki-joo is following up her stint on Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo with another sageuk. She’s landed a supporting role in Ruler—Master of the Mask and will round out an otherwise solid cast in the drama about crown prince Yoo Seung-ho’s fight against a wealthy organization out to privatize the water supply. Ruler—Master of the Mask will air in the first half of the year on MBC. [Osen]
  • Viewers were peeved that an Entourage kiss scene between Young-bin and So-hee’s characters circulated online but had been cut from the broadcast, accusing tvN of engaging in “noise marketing.” A tvN source explained that that wasn’t the intent—the scene in question had aired in China but the proper clearance hadn’t been obtained to release the footage in other simultaneous markets, and therefore it had been cut. [Osen]

  • Kim Nam-gil, Heo Jung-eun

  • Kim Nam-gil’s promoting his new disaster film Pandora, in which he plays the youngest son of a family and an immature and unlikely hero. He was asked if there were similarities between he and his character Jae-hyuk, to which he responded: “He’s like me. (Laughs.) I love to complain and the staff would ask me, ‘You have lots of elder sisters, don’t you?’ [implying he’s been coddled by noonas] but I’m the eldest son. Haha. Everyone told me I could just behave like my true self [to portray the character].” [Osen]
  • Oh My Geum-bi’s PD Kim Young-jo has praised his young star Heo Jung-eun, saying he knew within a second of meeting her that she was the right person for the job. Kim’s admitted to getting quite protective of Heo, and said with smiling eyes, “Jung-eun approaches the staff often and is lively and positive, but there are crew members who smoke and I was worried, so I prohibited smokers from touching her with hands that have held cigarettes.” [Xports News]
  • More stills have been released for Man to Man, which is currently filming on location in Hungary. Park Hae-jin (Cheese in the Trap) interacts with foreign actors in a college campus setting, and he appears to be mid-presentation in one cut. The cast and crew of roughly 150 members have been in the country since mid-November, and despite the chilly conditions, they are hard at work, filming as much as possible in a short amount of time. Man to Man airs next year on JTBC. [TV Report]

More than JIW enlistment. I'm worried about his cerebral(?) aneurysm. Poor Guy.

So am I. But I'm hoping for the best.

The things one has to do so that ones reputation isn't shredded by the media... If his medical condition isn't a reason for exemption, then I don't know what is, though it'd be hard for his career to recover if he does exempt as I hear the Korean public can be brutal to celebrities they perceive to be shirking their military service duties.

Hopefully he can get through the first four weeks of basic training without a problem and then he put on desk duty...

Speaking of which, it does seem to be particularly odd that Yoo Ah In hasn't been called for MS when his birthdate is October 1986. I remember him ending SFD with the expectation to serve shortly after and he hasn't done any major project since. I wonder what's up with him? A good majority of the 86ers are serving or have served and are about to finish their MS.

Yes, I have noticed news on his MS since SFD but apparently we didn't know the exact time.

The sad thing is, JIW knowingly jeopardizes his life by enlisting in active duty, considering the serious symptoms showed after his head trauma, which is never benign. He is well-aware that entering civil service instead would tarnish his image forever, pretty much like conscientious objectors in SK.

The thing is, he should put his health and life first above his public image. I feel sad that the Korean celebs being too concern over public opinion to the extend that they are not free to live the life that they wanted to. Sure, success comes with a price and they are expected to make this kind of sacrifices but JIL health condition is no joke.

Heo Jung-eun(Geum Bi) is incredible when it comes to acting and she slays her role so well that I wouldn't mind if she gets a Top Excellence Award this year. This girl has a very bright future ahead of her.

The next 2 years are gonna be hard for many of us because many of the '87ers are going to enlist! But, thinking positively, I am already looking forward to the increase in global temperature after they all come back from army!

And seriously someone should do some sort of research on the chemicals present in the water of Korea in 1986-87! How did so many of the guys turn out to be such good (and handsome) actors!

Aaah, why is it that my KDramaland experience were the best when I watched your dramas Louie-ya? I guess I will be waiting patiently for your return and that swoony picture above, ah l loved your tanned skin Louie-ya(guess I'm showing my crazy self again). Anyways why is it that I get the feeling that you're always been giving smart answers for your interviews? Must be one of your many charms Gukkkie-ya, haha. What a great year this year for you, with 2 successful drama and I bet, you're going to give more after your comeback from the MS! Hwaiting!

Regarding Jung Il Woo, he will be riding a desk for the time of his service but he is supposed to do a month of PT....no no no. They should exempt him from PT or not let him serve. In what military does the person get a say...that's crazy and shows what is wrong with the system in Korea. Choi Jin Hyuk should not have been allowed to serve active duty but should have been riding a desk as well. I get it, I understand why this happens but it is insane.

Oh and the kiss scene...TvN is actually saying they got it past the Chinese censors but the US market...well that's a no go. What !?
