[caption id="attachment_2254" align="alignleft" width="294" caption="Moon Geun Young"]moon_geun_young[/caption] It's been a chilly winter with all the outdoor shoots for the cast and crew of Pasta, so lead actor Lee Seon Kyun surprised everyone with a New Year's gift of 70 jackets! What a sweet guy--in total contrast from the boss-from-hell character he plays on the new drama which begins tonight! 2009 was a GREAT year for Kim Hyun Jung. Not only did the SS501 member star in Boys Over Flowers, he also ended up number 5 on the list of top 10 earners of the year. Since the list is dominated by music groups and veteran stars, this is an amazing accomplishment for a solo star who's only been on the scene for five years! KHJ marked the New Year with a kinda generic blog message and a blink-and-you'll-miss-it "Hi guys!" video with Yoon Eun Hye. We reported on the unusual lengths that Ethan Ruan (My Queen) and Mark Chao were willing to go to in order to promote their new film Monga, and now here are more details on the ambitious Taiwanese gangster film. The studio is standing strong behind Monga, which will open in more theaters than Sherlock Holmes, and aims to be a hit to surpass Hollywood imports. It's official--Aibu Saki (Buzzer Beat) is dating her Utahime co-star Nagase Tomoya! More details, and a rather unflattering paparazzi photo of the two out on the town, are here. Did Wu Chun (Hot Shot) lip sync his way through a tv New Year's Countdown special? You be the judge! Taiwanese drama fans had a lot to be thankful for last year, with the hits Easy Fortune Happy Life, Black & White and My Queen. You can catch up on dramas you may have missed in this year in review. We've been anticipating Pasta, Chuno, Road No. 1 and the historical hospital drama Jejungwon in 2010, but there's also news of Cinderella's Sister, featuring a surprisingly villainous Moon Geun Young, in this preview of the year ahead in Korean drama. Here's another preview of the six dramas debuting in this month alone, including the swashbuckler The Slave Hunters. Lee Seung Ki and Park Shin Hye got married, at least as part of a year-end musical number, and romantic new pics have emerged from the rehearsal. Hi My Sweetheart sweetheart Rainie Yang surprised fans by spraying them with water (isn't it a little cold for that?), being proposed to by a girl dressed as a guy, and revealing that she has a secret crush with a due date--if the guy doesn't show interest by Valentine's Day, she's giving up! Finally, the Japanese guy whose fans most want as a lover is Fukuyama Masaharu--again. Oguri Shun only made #6, and the entire results from the new poll is right here.
