Happy Monday, everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. Here are the Top Three kpop and kdrama stories you need to know to break those awkward silences that happen about a hundred times a day (or is that just me?)

1. Lee Byung Hun is confirmed to star in his first ever period drama, a "Prince and the Pauper" tale in which he'll play dual roles called King of Chosun.

2. We're hoping for a speedy recovery for T-ara's Eunjung, who fell from her horse while filming Queen Insoo, and also Eugene's younger sister, who was injured in a car accident, causing the actress to back out of the drama Color of Woman.

3. On a lighter note, MTV has officially declared 2NE1 the "Best New Band in the World"!
