Park Han Byul’s Interview (ISplus)

with 4 comments

KP’s note: Park Han Byul’s Se7en-related excerpts are part of the “drinking interview” series by ISplus where a journalist interviews the celebrity over a dinner and alcoholic drinks. This one in particular took place at a pork restaurant on June 21 and was published five days later. I usually don’t go back to post photos or articles that over a month old, but I thought that this one’s interesting because it was published just after Se7en went public about being in a seven-year relationship with Park Han Byul. Her answers give some insight into their long denied relationship, and since I never wrote a couple alert for them (because really – who needed to be alerted?), I thought that this might be nice.

KP’s FAREWELL Note

with 42 comments

Dear readers,

“All good things come to an end”, they say. Well, maybe not all, but I’m afraid my adventure into entertainment blogging must. Although I’ve enjoyed the past six or seven months – particularly the popularity from the Boys Over Flowers craze, this site will be shut down shortly. Due to an upcoming career change, I can’t commit to maintaining a top-quality site – and I’d rather do no site than a mediocre one.

Thanks for your support up until now. Some of your e-mails and comments have been really encouraging. I haven’t decided if I’ll stop writing/translating for good; maybe I’ll contribute occasionally to other sites if they’ll have me.^^ Or, maybe I’ll continue anonymously correcting mistakes on other k-pop blogs, keke. I’d like to return to KPculture in the future because I think there’s a lack of objective Korean entertainment news out there, but it’s not realistic for the next while.

I’ll likely shut down the blog, e-mail account, and YouTube account by the end of this month so if you’d like to copy anything to replace the links you’ve made, please do so. Thanks in particular to people who linked KPculture on their blogroll, we really appreciated it! If you have any questions or requests, please leave a comment and we’ll try to respond. We’d especially like to hear from our regular visitors – what did/didn’t you like about the blog? Thanks for your input (in advance)!

Adieu,

KP

P.S. For those who might have been curious – the blog began with two of us but ends with one. I became independent after becoming best friends with Naver Dictionary. ^^
