Shin Dong-wook hopes for a comeback
by | August 15, 2013 | 70 Comments
This isn’t enough to celebrate just yet, but it’s good news to be hearing about Shin Dong-wook again, even if all mentions of comebacks are vague and off in the distant future. I’d worried he might never return to acting, so it’s nice to get an update on his situation. The Soulmate and Wish Upon... More »

Jang Hyuk publishes collection of personal essays
by | August 5, 2013 | 29 Comments
Bookish and writerly are hardly the first two words that pop to mind when thinking of Jang Hyuk (IRIS 2, Tree With Deep Roots, Chuno)—and maybe not even the last two words, really, in that they are words I would never think to pair with him at any point of any sort of adjective-naming game....

by | July 12, 2013 | 118 Comments
So this is literally just a happy photo post, because I saw pretty pictures of School 2013 costars Lee Jong-seok and Kim Woo-bin together, and it made me do an embarrassing dance. I’d show you the dance but javabeans said she’d stop being my friend if I ever did that again, so… yeah…... More »

Kim Ji-hoon soaps up for Nylon
by | July 1, 2013 | 60 Comments
Kim Ji-hoon, in a bathtub? You’ve got my attention. I don’t care that I’m easy—more bubbles! (Oh wait. Do I mean fewer bubbles?)

Lee Jin-wook’s summer magazine spreads
by | June 22, 2013 | 79 Comments
So Lee Jin-wook has a new summer photo shoot out (for Marie Claire magazine’s July issue), which is great ’cause it’s colorful and it’s Lee Jin-wook, but also terrible in that it’s terrible. I mean, just look at those shots. They’re all greasy hair and too-short shorts and no socks and studded muscle tees, like... More »

by | June 21, 2013 | 31 Comments
Okay, so it’s not talking-car Knight Rider, but Yeon Woo-jin’s shoot for Singles is inexplicably car-themed, and totally throwback.
