  • Jang Hyuk has been confirmed as the male lead in The Rabbit & the Lizard (working title – 토끼와 리저드). His character’s name is Eun Seol, a cab driver who has a rare heart condition. Although gruff on the outside, he is actually rather warm and gentle. Through helping May discover her past, he finds love and hope within himself. Read below for KP’s previously posted information on the movie:

Sung Yu Ri (Hong Gil Dong) is studying English for her first movie (tentative title – The Rabbit & the Lizard) role. Filming will begin mid-February. Her character is named May, a Korean adoptee returning to her place of birth after twenty three years to find her identity. Sung began taking intensive English lessons three months ago so that she can play the role convincingly. The production company representative said that all filming will take place in Korea and most of the script will be in Korean. The male lead was cast recently, but has yet to be announced.

  • Harisu filmed a cameo for Return of Iljimae for an episode to be broadcast mid-March. She agreed to the role after receiving a “love call” from PD Hwang In Roe (pronounced Rwae). Her character is a fortune teller hired by Iljimae’s rival.
  • MC Mong confessed that he is currently in love through his Cy minihompy on February 19. He claims that his non-celebrity girlfriend is a strong Christian who has inspired him to change his ways and “turn around his rotten spirit”.
