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 Note 7

leave a comment »

Dear visitors,

We will be on hiatus for a couple of days – even if an earth-shattering news item such as “Jang Dong Gun & Lee Hyori Elope!” comes up.

Sorry for the inconvenience – we’ll post about a few upcoming dramas, the second part of 2ne1’s interview, and more later on this week.

– KP

P.S. Here’s a random picture that might put a smile on your face:
