The Fever Watch - Dec 4, 2009
The 30th annual Blue Dragon Film Awards were handed out in Seoul, and countless film and drama stars made their way down the red carpet (not without some difficulty) to honor the best Korean films of the year. The gala event was hosted by Kim Hye Soo (Style) and Lee Beom Soo (On Air, Surgeon Bong Dal Hee), and the Bong Joon Ho (The Host)-directed drama Mother took top honors (view the English trailer here).
Bad news for Daniel Henney: his CBS medical drama (and US television debut) Three Rivers has been canceled and will be replaced by reruns of the network's more popular crime shows.
Takeshi Kitano announced his return to gangster films, and Outrage, his first in nine years is set to star the actor-director alongside Tomokazu Miura, Kippei Shiina, Jun Kunimura, and veteran Japanese television actor Tetta Sugimoto.
The reviews for The Actresses are in, the quasi-improvised Korean film in which six generations of real-life screen beauties (Youn Yuh Jung, Lee Mi Suk, Ko Hyun Jung, Choi Ji Woo, Kim Min Hee and Kim Ok Vin) send up their images and off-screen scandals. The consensus for now seems to be that the comedy-drama is a mixed bag of inspired casting and direction with a "highly predictable storyline."
Lee Seung Ki has a new love in his life, if you go by the number of times people have been searching Google for "Kang Ho Dong's Seung Gi love." Check out the comedian and the actor (now co-hosts of Strong Heart) getting chummy right here.
More than 50 stars donated autographed pairs of jeans to a UNICEF fundraiser, so if you've ever wanted to wear Oh Ji Ho's signature on your butt, you'd better beat cheeks to the Levi's flagship store in Myeong Dong!
