[caption id="attachment_2434" align="alignleft" width="359" caption="Park Ha Sun"]Park Ha Sun[/caption] Actors, models and fashionistas were honored for their contributions to Asian culture last weekend at the 5th annual Asian Model Awards in Seoul. Park Han Byul (Everybody Cha Cha Cha) and VJ Noh Hong Chul took home the Fashionista Award, while Cha Seung Won (City Hall) and Lee Yo Won (Queen Seon Duk) shared the Special Award, and Ji Sung (Swallow the Sun) and Yoo Sun (The Sons of Sol Pharmacy House) were awarded the Popular Star Award. Topping them all was Lee Byung Hun (IRIS), who took the grand prize, the Asia Star. Lee's agency also just announced that he will star in I Saw the Devil, the new thriller from director Kim Ji Woon (The Good, The Bad, The Weird). Lee will play against Cho Min Sik (Oldboy) in the bloody revenge flick which starts filming in February. Park Ha Sun (That Fool) has been cast as Queen In Hyun in the historical epic drama Dong Yi, airing in March. Producers say they wanted a fresh face to play the role of the deposed Queen who develops a close relationship with Dong Yi, a water maid who climbs to a powerful position within the palace. Chuno's ever-increasing ratings have been the talk of the kdrama world this season--besides burying the competing Herothis comparison with the show's time slot forerunner shows that Chuno even beat the popularity of the mega-hit IRIS! Chuno star Jang Hyuk has a strange way of setting the mood for romantic scenes--right before they had to kiss on camera, he looked deeply into co-star Lee Da Hae's eyes and asked what she wanted to be in ten years' time... For more Chuno tidbits, check out these behind-the-scenes stories from Lee Da Hae, Jang Hyuk and Oh Ji Ho as told on the variety show Happy Together. This month's other ratings success story is God of Study, and the young cast is getting a lot more exposure recently, including this pretty classroom shoot for Elle Girl starring Go Ah Sung. Im Joo Hwan, aka Kim Bum's big brother on Boys Over Flowers, will join the young cast of What's Up as a college music student. Not much has been reported on the plot of the new drama, which begins filming in March and includes the acting debut of model Lee Hyuk Soo. Kim Ha Neul (On Air) looked okay in denim and black for a fan signing event over the weekend. Maybe she's keeping it casual to conserve her energy for filming Road No. 1. Finally, a couple of cute photo shoots, one new and one ten years old. Kim Hee Sun (Smile Again) released family photos from her adorable daughter's first birthday. And Yoon Eun Hye found this nostalgic shot in her photo box of the Coffee Prince actress in her Baby V.O.X. days with bandmate Kan Mi Yeon.
