Seo In-gook for Allure and Elle Girl
by | September 18, 2012 | 76 Comments
It’s photo spreads galore for the bright-eyed leads of Answer Me 1997, which ended its run today. [PLEASE NO FINALE SPOILERS HERE.] It was really fun to see what started out as a small cable series become such a buzz show, and get so much media attention for the cast and crew. Leading man (er,...

Interview with Answer Me 1997′s Jung Eun-ji
by | September 17, 2012 | 60 Comments
This girl is adorable. I’m pretty sure it’s 99.9% her character in Answer Me 1997 that makes me love Jung Eun-ji so much, but hey, that gruff swear-first-ask-questions-later attitude has to come from somewhere deep within, right? If she weren’t an idol, I’d have put my money on gangster’s daughter, ’cause she’s a badass, and... More »

Lee Ki-woo turns cold and chic for fashion spread
by | September 5, 2012 | 31 Comments
Pretty. Lee Ki-woo is a nice-lookin’ man to begin with, but he’s looking sharper than usual in this new photo spread for some fashion magazine I’ve never heard of called The First Class. He’s tailored and chic as a “European style chado-nam [cold city man],” just lounging around and looking fine. I do sort of... More »

The army calls and another one goes. 29-year old actor Kim Dong-wook met with the press outside the Nonsan training facility before beginning his military service today. He reports for basic training, after which he’ll serve in non-active duty for the police, mostly in publicity, doing public service work with the elderly and youth. It’s... More »

September magazines feature the two faces of Jung Yumi
by | August 29, 2012 | 32 Comments
Jung Yumi recently wrapped her cable drama I Need Romance 2012, and she’s also featured in two fashion magazines sporting vastly disparate styles. You wouldn’t necessarily think her a chameleon at first glance but she’s really got some range, whether we’re talking acting style or just her appearance. Tags: Jung Yumi, photo shoots... More »

Kim Nam-gil goes camping for Marie Claire
by | August 28, 2012 | 74 Comments
The upside to having so many actors go to army at once is that they all come back at once too. It’s definitely the Year That Oppa Returns From Army, as dramaland fills back up with leading men. While others snapped up projects right away (and some secured them while still IN the army), Kim... More »

Han Hyo-joo in Vogue Korea
by | August 27, 2012 | 53 Comments
Now here’s how to shoot an interesting photo spread. Han Hyo-joo is in the upcoming issue of Vogue Korea, rocking a look that’s sorta Victorian, sorta avante gard, and sorta hanbok-y, and I love it. We haven’t really seen much from Han recently, perhaps because her latest projects are all films — she had Only... More »

Lee Min-ho in fall/winter looks
by | August 15, 2012 | 88 Comments
Hi, Pretty. Well with a new drama and a shiny new photo shoot, I guess it’s Lee Min-ho all day, every day. Not that anyone would complain about that. That would be like complaining that the world had too many Saturdays or that there should be fewer pictures of kittens on the internet. I mean,... More »

Song Seung-heon on acting, ratings, and Dr. Jin
by | August 13, 2012 | 184 Comments
There’s a strange dichotomy about Song Seung-heon that occasionally crops up, and this interview is another example of it. Essentially, he’ll act in a project and be mediocre in it despite incredible hype, and occasionally even be terrible. I’ll wonder how on earth he got to be as famous as he is, then remember The...

by | August 6, 2012 | 138 Comments
girlfriday: Aw, another one goes. Ji Hyun-woo, aka time traveler and In-hyun’s man Kim Boong-do, enlisted today for active duty. javabeans: Predictably, the big question fans and reporters are asking (literally to his face) is: What about Yoo Inna? Ji Hyun-woo was pretty evasive, as you might expect of him, saying merely that he spent... More »

Vogue shoot. Fashion is weird.
by | August 2, 2012 | 75 Comments
javabeans: I’m pretty sure I do not understand this shoot. Like, at all. Is it we-ran-out-of-shoot-ideas-so-just-give-hot-men-random-props day? And stick them in their hair? girlfriday: What, you don’t understand the deep significance of the bread-knife-hat? javabeans: There are two ways to answer that. I choose the one that forces you to defend the hat. Tags: conversation... More »
