Casting for the big upcoming rom-com manga adaptation Playful Kiss
(aka Mischievous Kiss
) has been a hot topic
for the past few weeks--will the male lead go to Kim Hyun Joong
? The production house that cast him in Boys Before Flowers
is casting this show too... Or maybe the uber-popular Jung Yong Hwa
from You're Beautiful
? Despite recent reports, Lee Min Ho
's name has been officially dropped as a possibility, his management saying that while it's true he was offered the role, he's decided on another project.
Kim Hyun Joong
's first official step
with new management company Keyeast is a special program airing on Japanese cable TV: Everything About Kim Hyun Joong
aims to reintroduce the star and groom him for Hallyu superstardom.
What do you think of the new poster
? The IRIS
spinoff is currently filming in Italy and will start broadcasting this November on Mondays and Tuesdays. Does the new poster say "IRIS
-style thriller" or "campy spy action" to you?
So Ji Sub
's raw emotion at Park Yong Ha
's funeral has been widely covered, and a new bit of information was leaked to the press: it turns out that So
generously paid for the entire service
. When asked about it, he confirmed that the cost had come out of his own pocket, but added "I am curious of how this fact got revealed to the public because only me, Park Yong-Ha’s
parents, and my manager knew about this…. I don’t want any further media coverage on this. I just did what I was supposed to do.”
Jung Yong Hwa
is going to need some strong time management skills
. It's been reported that the CN Blue
leader's been offered 5 new drama roles (including perhaps Playful Kiss
), along with parts in films and musicals. On top of that, he's appearing on We Got Married
and of course touring with his band. His managers say that he'll decide on his next role sometime later this year.
