News bites: January 21
- Goong S‘s Heo Yi-jae (“little Kim Tae Hee”) has been cast as Oh Ji Ho’s love interest in the upcoming drama Single Papa in Love. Yikes, that makes me nervous for both of them.
- While doing press for her upcoming film The Chaser, actress Park Hyo Joo of the cable “Chosun CSI” show Chosun Police (and spunky agent Im Yewon from Air City) admitted in an interview that she suffers from a rare spinal condition, congenital spondylolysis (a defect in the lower lumbar vertebra). She was diagnosed in high school and had to give up her lifelong dreams of being a ballerina. Thankfully her condition doesn’t get in the way of her current career; her film opens on Valentine’s Day.
- Speaking of ballerinas, pop vocal group CSJH The Grace‘s arguably most popular member, Stephanie, is dressing up as a ballerina (her previous artistic endeavor, prior to becoming a singer) in Project “S,” a mobile-content photo collection she shot in Singapore this past December. Already a two-minute video clip of Stephanie showing her ballet moves is available at the video portal tvpot.daum.net (or watch the video below):
- And Lee Bo Young opens a new film and fights old rumors. She’s promoting her first starring film role in Once Upon a Time, which sounds like some kind of period crime caper hybrid (she’s in search of a stolen 3,000 carat diamond and teams with a master thief, played by Park Yong Woo), which opens at the end of January. Meanwhile, she’s still denying rumors that sprung up last year that she was seeing soccer star Park Ji Sung — gossip even placed her in England, supposedly visiting him there — but she insists they’ve never even met.
SONG OF THE DAY
CSJH The Grace – “Dancing Queen.” Because who couldn’t use a little ABBA on a Monday?
