오래간만이네요...Long time no blog

오래간만이네요...Long time no blog..

It has been more than 2 months since my last entry. Have been really busy and haven't had much time to keep up with Korean entertainment news....Actually no time to keep up with any news at all. But thanks to my 진구, I still get updated with interesting news.

So, I did know that Kwon Sang Woo is planning to get married, that Lee Eon (the goofy muscle man in Coffee Prince Shop No 1 met an umtimely death in car accident, that Bae Yong Joon is finally going to film a new drama and is also planning to produce a travel photo book on Korea. And of course, Song Hye Gyo and Hyun Bin are now in Singapore somewhere..filming (they were somewhere in Boat Quay).

And I also discovered that the much anticipated drama, 'East of Eden' has started. Starring Song Seung Hun in his first comeback drama after military service, the drama also has a strong cast with Yeon Jung Hoon, Lee Da Hae (finally, a role that doesn't require her to act cute) and Han Ji Hye as the other leads.

I've only watched snatches of the 1st episode, so I can't comment but from the ratings, it is almost 18% for the 3rd epsiode and very likely to go beyond 20% once the adult actors appear. I'm not sure if I have the patience to watch all 50 episodes though...

Looking at Song Seung Hun now, he has definitely changed alot since his early days, and I can only say it's for the better. There is a matured look about him and of course, being in the military has also toughened up his body. Which is probably why all his works (CFs, MVs, movie etc) so far has err...focus quite abit on his body. Not that I'm complaining. Now, I know many women are 'butt' watchers. Me? I'm a chest watcher. That's why Lee Byung Hun captured my attention in 'Beautiful Days'. And that's why this has my thumbs up. ^^

Compare this to his earlier drama, 'Happy Together'...You can catch a short clip here.

Heard 'Fate' didn't do as well as expected, so I hope 'East of Eden' will be the come back hit for him. No matter what, the theme song has already won me over as it's sang by SG Wannabe and Kim Jong Kook. ^^

Song Seung Hun and Park Yong Ha did some mvs for 연가 2008, which is a compilation of some of the more popular songs recently. One of these song was from SG Wannabe. Lots of bare chest because of the boxing match...hehehe!

Park Yong Ha is another actor who has morphed into a 'butterfly'? I couldn't stand him in 'Winter Sonata'. Wanted to strangle him most of the time. Of course, it was a tough fight against BYJ but I didn't really like him in 'Loving You' either. But he totally changed my opinion of him in 'On Air'. Then as I was going through my stack of old magazines, I found this!

Doesn't he look pink? Wahahaha! Park Yong Ha was the special guest at the Z Pop concert in 2003. I guess he can be considered as the first Hallyu star to come to our shore? Too bad I didn't go and see him then as I really wasn't too into things Korean though I did like 'Winter Sonata' very much. In recent years, quite a few Hallyu stars have set foot upon on our tiny island- Jang Dong Gun, Bae Yong Joon, Lee Byung Hun, Won Bin, Lee Dong Gun, Eric, Kim Jae Won etc...but not Song Seung Hun. He was supposed to come here to promote 'So Close' many years ago but backed out last minute. Caused much unhappiness back then. Wonder if he will ever come here (there were many rumours about this since last year).

Anybody who hears any news, let me know ok? : )

Read that Kwon Sang Woo is finally off to his honeymoon and I'm still not sure if his wife is pregnant. But seiously, who long as they are happy, we should wish the best for them isn't it?

Speaking of pregnancy, this is the reason for my absence. I'm afraid I have not had much time for any entertainment, unless you count the number of times I have to feed and change her entertaining. But then...hehe, I wouldn't have it any other way.
