  • Minzy (Kong Min Ji, 15) of 2ne1 has belatedly announced that she gave up on attending high school in order to focus on her music career. She will instead study for qualification exams to receive a diploma (much like the North American GED). Minzy follows the route taken by fellow YG colleagues, Dae Sung and Seung Ri, who have both successfully entered university.



  • Mid-June, Sean and Jung Hye Young gave birth to their third child, a son named Ha Yul (meaning God’s law). Sean put up a photo of Ha Yul’s feet on July 14. He wote that one-month-old Ha Yul now weighs 3.4 kilograms – which was how much their firstborn Ha Eum weighed when she was born.

    Sean’s minihompy drew more attention on July 16 when he posted a love letter to his wife, thanking her for being a wonderful mother to their children. As a postscript he wrote: “Hye Young, you – who gave birth to one daughter and two sons – score of 100 out of 10. Let’s live happily with Ha Eum, Ha Rang, and Ha Yul!”

  • Lee Wan and Shim Eun Jin spent three hours filming a kiss scene over 20 times for SBS Swallow the Sun‘s second episode. According to AGB Nielson Media Research, the episode pulled in 15.8% of viewers. In the third episode, Lee Wan’s character (Jang Tae Hyuk) has another kiss scene – a shorter one with So Yi Hyun’s character.

  • On July 15, Jeong Sia and Baek Do Bin welcomed their firstborn – a boy weighing 3.1 kilograms – into the world. His birth comes four months after the couple’s marriage and a bit earlier than expected. Despite a premature birth, mother and son are both doing well. Baek Do Bin currently has a supporting role on Queen Seon Duk.
