Hikaru Utada Upset With Media…

12 Aug

Utada Hikaru’s announcement about her going on hiatus took the entire country by surprise, and the news is now everywhere. Some media outlets reported that the reason for her going on hiatus was because she has lost many things through her popularity. Such as, going shopping in public or going to McDonald’s.

Hikaru made a new entry about the news report saying that it’s not right. She said, “If people think I decided to go on hiatus for these stupid reasons, that is disappointing.”

The entry has a little bit of tension and it seems she is upset about the reports. However, Hikaru also wrote that she has only been gaining things since her popularity, not losing.


Han Chae Young’s Hollywood Move…

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.

Well, it looks like the actress got exactly as she wished and was recently signed with popular Hollywood agency CAA (Creative Artists Agency) that has some major celebrities linked including David Beckham, Brad Pitt, Tom Hanks, Nicholas Cage, Julia Roberts, and more.

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.

I recently discovered DBSK, and I’m embarrased to say that I drool over them every opportunity I get. Which is quite a lot, now that I think of it… Am I a fan or just shameless. Hmm…

Korean Drama Review Index.

6 Aug

Let’s make this real easy. I’m going to rate these dramas just like high school. I mean, like this…

F   – Absolutely Horrible. No Redeeming Qualities Whatsoever. I’m Ashamed To Think I Watched This.

D   – Slightly More Tolerable. It Didn’t Make Me Want To Barf. I Wouldn’t Necessarily Want To Watch It Again, Though.

C   – Average. Not Good But Not Bad Either. I Wouldn’t Write Blog Entries About It.

B   – Definitely Above Average. I Love This.

A+++  – A Masterpiece. Bravo! No, Brava! I’ve Never Been More Happy In My Life.

Simple, huh?

I might find it hard to classify a drama so I’ll use plus(+) and minus(-) signs to make clear exactly what I mean. I’ll explain, don’t worry.

Jang Dong Gun To Focus on Acting?

10 May

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.

Looks like the honeymoon was enough alone time with the ole ball and chain as he says that he’s ready to focus on his acting career again.

Millie’s Comments:   I’m really glad he’s back to acting. Missed him a lot. Anyone think he feels like the cat who ate the canary? I mean, a great carrier, a beautiful wife, and a child in the offing, to boot…
