Javabeans Playlist #3: Actor edition
by | August 18, 2011 | 121 Comments
More songs! And this time, they’re sung by some of your favorite (or not) actors. This list is hardly comprehensive, and I picked mostly those actors who weren’t singers first. (And if they were, they are generally stars who are not known for their singing, despite their origins. See: Kim Kang-woo’s awesome beginnings as a... More »

Bae Doo-na has a fashion shoot for the current High Cut magazine, which takes the concept of “Doo-na’s doll play” and is available in the magazine’s issue #48 (March).

Bae Doo-na shows her sexy side for Vogue
by | September 29, 2010 | 27 Comments
Wow — Bae Doo-na usually takes on a more girl-next-door image, but she’s downright sexy for this new fashion spread for Vogue. It’s enough to make you double-take (at least I did), since I’m used to her casual, dressed-down look, such as in her drama God of Study earlier this year. She wears dramatic makeup... More »

Bae Doo-na (God of Study) and “Chunderella,” aka Lee Chun-hee (Smile), are starring in MBC’s Saturday-Sunday drama Gloria which premieres this weekend.

God of Study: Episode 10

Hyun-jung’s last time depending on Baek-hyun. This episode was a clean finish for the Baek-Jung storyline. After this I think the drama can move much faster. I’m sorry to all the Baek-Jung fans out there, heh. Tags: Bae Doo-na, Go Ah-sung, God of Study, Kim Su-ro, Yoo Seung-ho... More »

God of Study: Episode 9
by | May 30, 2010 | 38 Comments
It seems the majority of the people who like God of Study mostly liked it for the kids and their interactions with each other. So I decided to focus more on the little things they do and make the…dragging parts less significant. Tags: Bae Doo-na, Go Ah-sung, God of Study, Kim Su-ro, Yoo Seung-ho... More »
