Yeo Jin-gu dealt a blow by Fist Fighting
by | April 10, 2014 | 92 Comments
I feel really bad for Yeo Jin-gu (Potato Star 2013QR3, Hwa-yi) – he’s been let go from the blockbuster production Fist Fighting, and his reps are hopping mad. The movie, a futuristic martial arts thriller which will be written and helmed by director Park Kwang-hyun (Welcome to Dongmakgol), has been mired in issues since we... More »

That’s normally not a good sign that it took so long to see the light of day, but the trailer promises a heartwarming and uplifting story. Let’s... More »

This one is an update of a big-budget blockbuster that was in planning for years and then stalled due to production delays, titled Fist Fighting, and although it lost Jo In-sung (who was cast a...

I was writing this other post about Yeo Jin-gu looking at a new movie project, and got distracted by this new photo shoot that cropped up online.

2013 MBC Drama Awards
by | December 30, 2013 | 240 Comments
Year-end awards are here! At least the first of the bunch is, with MBC putting on its ceremony the night before SBS and KBS follow suit with theirs.

Yeo Jin-gu’s photo shoot for L’Officiel Hommes
by | November 27, 2013 | 87 Comments
Every time Yeo Jin-gu (Hwa-yi, Potato Star 2013QR3) shows up in a fashion spread, my reaction undergoes the exact same thought process and trajectory: Yes, he is STILL only 16 years old. Yes I checked, as I do every time, but somehow time moves so slowly. And yes, it’s a bit unreal how grown-up he... More »

Production in full swing on tvN sitcom Potato Star 2013QR3
by | September 3, 2013 | 61 Comments
Looks like they’re getting literal with the upcoming sitcom Potato Star 2013QR3, which has fortunately come to (half) its senses by revising its original title, Potato-Shaped Sweet Potato Star 2013QR3. Now if we could do something about that “2013QR3″… (purposely cryptic-sounding to mimic the naming of a new star). This is the new daily sitcom... More »

Yeo Jin-gu’s big-screen debut in thriller Hwa-yi
by | August 18, 2013 | 52 Comments
The trailer is out for Yeo Jin-gu’s big-screen debut, and the movie looks like a dark, chilling ride with an impressive performance by Yeo.
