Boys Over Flowers – News Review 5

3/1 – 3/7

  • Jang Ja Yeon (Sunny of BOF‘s Jin-Sun-Mi trio) committed suicide by hanging herself. She was found dead on March 7 by her older sister, who said that Ja Yeon battled with depression for awhile. Ja Yeon’s sister is the sole surviving member of the family, as their parents died in a car accident about a decade ago.
  • Many were surprised to find out that Lee Min Ho is a smoker through paparazzi shots of him smoking during break of a CF shoot. (KP’s note: He’s been pretty open about his smoking habits, so I’m not quite sure why people are so surprised. His minihompy has photos that date back a few years of him smoking. The examples below were put together by kpculture.)
  • Following episode 17’s broadcast, netizens expressed their dissatisfaction over Park Soo Jin’s and Kim Jong Jin’s acting skills (or lack thereof). Park plays So Yi Jeong’s first love, Cha Eun Jae, while Kim plays Yi Jeong’s father.
  • Lee Min Jung has been cast as an executive secretary in Baek-ya-haeng – Into the White Night (백야행 – 하얀 어둠 속을 걷다), the movie adaptation of Keigo Higashino’s novel Byakuyoku. Han Seok Gyu, Son Ye Jin, Go Soo, and Joo Da Yeong star, and began filming on March 1.
  • It has been confirmed that the show will be extended until March 31, when episode 25 will be broadcast.
