KP’s Note 6

with one comment

Dear KPculturists,

As you’ve probably noticed, we changed our site layout recently. If you’re new and want to catch up on older posts, click on Archives on the right sidebar to see posts categorized by month, topic, or tag. Our posting schedule was quite irregular last month, but we’re still pushing ahead. Just today, we put up five posts so have a look and click on Older Posts to catch up on this week’s news.

Did you get a chance to see some celebrities’ childhood photos in our Just4kix series? Click here to see what stars like Kwon Sang Woo, Lee Da Hae, Kim Ha Neul, and Se7en looked like when they were young. We’ll post another Guess Who this weekend.

After five months, we [already? finally?] passed 1,000,000 hits. Thanks for continuing to visit our site.

Sincerely,

KP

P.S. Here a few cute, random photos for your amusement:

  • Actor Jung Jae Young went bald for the first time in his acting career  for a film role. He got his head shaved on July 8 in order to wear the wig that he needs to play an elderly man in Eekki (이끼). (KP’s note: I’m not sure what the English title will be because 이끼 is the Korean word for moss as well as the phrase “Dear me!/What a fright!”.)

    This is the third film – following Silmido and Public Enemy Returns – with famed director Kang Woo Suk directing Jung Jae Young. The movie is a thriller about people who live alone without family in a rural village and the secrets that unravel as a young stranger enters. Park Hae Il, Yoo Joon Sang, and Yoo Hae Jin have also been cast and will begin filming in August.

  • Kim Min Joon (Friend, Our Legend) received a minor injury while making a guest appearance on Family Outing. An agency representative for Kim said that the actor was paragliding when the wind suddenly changed directions and caught him off guard. Kim is able to appear on variety shows since Friend, Our Legend completed filming before broadcast began.

  • Kim Dong Wook, Lee Dong Wook, and Kim Hyun Joo – currently starring in Partner – are promoting a World Vision campaign taken on by Skono Korea (under Norwegian fashion brand, Skono). They are sending 22,000 pairs of shoes to Swaziland as part of emergency relief supplies.

    The leads of KBS2’s legal drama are currently sleeping less than two hours per night in order to film two episodes per week. The tight schedule is a result of the drama being pushed up two months due to SBS’s complaints against Magazine Allo. Fortunately, Partner‘s viewership went up over the past week from 7.7% (episode 4) to 12.1% (episode 5), surpassing Triple‘s weak 6.8%.

  • Moon Hee Jun and his fan club distributed toys at Hansarang – a centre for children with disabilities – in Gwangju, Gyeonggi-do. The nature of the charitable activity was linked with his new mini album‘s title track, “Toy”.

  • Kang Ji Hwan put on four kilograms of muscle to star in an Mnet “showcumentary” featuring his travels in Japan. He even brought along a trainer to help him get his body in shape for future filming at the country’s famous hot springs. Kang will be travelling all over Japan to film the series, 강지환의 어느날 어디선가 (loosely translated as Kang Ji Hwan’s Day Somewhere), which is expected to be broadcast from September to February.
