KP’s note: Jang’s father is a theatre and film actor who debuted in 1969. If you’re wondering why their names are different, his birth name is Jang Yeon Go.

KP’s note: If you’re wondering at the unusual pairing, Kim Min Ji and Lee Hyuk Soo (aka Lee Soo Hyuk, Kim Min Hee’s boyfriend) are both managed by sidusHQ. They’re actually only four years apart, at 17 and soon-to-be 21.

KP’s note: Believe it or not, his name is spelled Pillip, not Phillip; we checked his minihompy. KP always looks up English name spellings, although we don’t always find them. However, we tag people using the most commonly used spelling. (Example: Below is Huh E Jae – who is tagged under Heo Yi Jae.)
