12 Aug

Back in June we reported that Han Chae Young was wrapping up her filming activities in Korea to head on over to America and attend some meetings for oversea activities.

BH Entertainment stated that Han Chae Young would be very successful working overseas, especially because of her good looks and excellent fluency in English.

Rain’s Probable Movie Before Military Enlistment…

12 Aug

World superstar Rain will most likely be participating in a movie remake of Red Scarf which was first released all the way back in 1964.

Although the details aren’t set in stone yet, there’s a very high possibility that he will indeed partake in playing the main character.

Rain had previously received a draft notice, letting him know that he had to enlist in the army on September 28th of this year. But because he will most likely play the main character in Red Scarf, and is also currently obtaining his master’s degree, many expect that the star will be able to postpone the mandatory duties.

Rain is currently filming for the KBS Drama Fugitive which is scheduled to air next month. Stay tuned to allkpop for further details.

On May 2nd, Jang Dong Gun and Go So Young finally tied the knot after holding a spectacular and epic wedding ceremony. The couple has just returned from their honeymoon and it’s been revealed that Jang Dong Gun is already jumping right back into work.

The newly wed couple went to Bali, Indonesia for their honeymoon and returned to Korea on the 8th. And although you’d think that the two would be spending some quality time together at home, Jang Dong Gun is already working on his comeback.

The moment the two returned from Korea, it was revealed that Jang Dong Gun already began filming for a CF. Talk about fast! But that’s not all as he’s also begun production on a new film called My Way.

2AM’s Like a Fool Released for Personal Taste OST

21 Apr

Son Ye Jin wanted 2AM’s Jo Kwon to participate in her new drama Personal Taste. This may not be exactly what she envisioned but Jo Kwon does participate through a different means as 2AM sings Like a Fool / 바보처럼 for the Personal Taste OST (Soundtrack).

The track title is reminiscent of SS501’s Because I’m Stupid from Lee Minho’s previous drama, Boys Overs Flowers. The song is a wonderful ballad and all of the 2AM boys get an opportunity to shine and showcase their wonderful voices. Thanks to jenpooable for the tip and check out the track below.
