star and Big Bang
member T.O.P. became so overwhelmed
at a screening of his new Korean War film 71: Into the Fire
that the post-screening Q and A had to be postponed so that he could put himself back together before answering questions. In the film, T.O.P.
plays Oh Jung Bum
, a student whose letters home form the basis of the story of a small group of student soldiers who defended against a much larger North Korean army.
concerts in Tokyo and Osaka also started late, but this time Lee Byung Hun apologized for the delay
. At both venues, areas designated Standing Room Only were taken over by additional stages, sending people scrambling to seats on higher floors, or standing their ground and arguing with the staff. Lee
promised to perform "more than [he] prepared" to make it up to fans.
Riding the momentum from his Chuno
, writer Chun Sung Il is bringing
his big screen hit Level 7 Civil Servant
to TV. The action comedy-drama hasn't been cast yet, but the new spy comedy only adds to the already high number of espionage-tinged Kdramas hitting the airwaves over the next few months--call it the IRIS
Scant details are available, but wire reports are stating that Birth of the Rich
star Lee Si Young received emergency treatment
for a drug overdose earlier today.
Han Ji Hye
has just released
a book of autobiographical essays titled My Fair Lady
. In it she reflects on her career as an actress, her hobbies (including shoe designing and furniture making), and life as a single woman in her twenties.
Finally, do you think this is harsh? Miryo
, from Kpoppers Brown Eyed Girls
, went to vote and decided to snap a photo of herself
holding voting cards to encourage her fans to do their part. The problem is that taking photos in a voting booth is illegal--lucky for Miryo
she hadn't filled out the cards yet, or she could have faced 2 years in the slammer! The reasoning is that seeing how celebrities vote could influence elections, but it seems unnecessary to me. Huh, looks like the U.S. has the same law
