Lee Je Hoon – L’Officiel HOMMES December 2016 Interview

I know that this is late (to be exact, it has been sitting in my draft for a month!) but here it is, at last, the translation for Lee Je-hoon’s short interview with L’Officiel HOMMES December issue. It has been quite an eventful year for our beloved actor, with his successful drama comeback through Signal earlier this year and his movie Phantom Detective in May. He took his time choosing his next projects and settled with drama Tomorrow with You (that will meet us in February) and movie Park Yeol. Well, enjoy the interview… and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I can’t wait for 2017 and more of Lee Je-hoon next year!

Lee Jong Suk and Han Hyo Joo for Dazed and Confused Nov 2016

These two are back together but not as Chul and Yeon-joo; instead, Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo pair up for an up close and personal couple pictorial for Dazed and Confused Korea. It’s a rare occurrence to have leads for a drama to be reunited in a photo shoot after the drama has ended its run, but I guess their chemistry in W was too good to be missed. Well, Dazed totally did a good job because they look so stunning, and I hope that the magazine will release more shots from this pictorial!

Lee Jun Ki for Singles

Lee Jun-ki is stealing the hearts of many with his currently-airing drama Moon Lovers (Scarlet Heart: Ryeo) where he stars as the 4th Prince Wang So. His performance is certainly commendable given how deftly he portrays So’s character and emotions, along with the great chemistry he has with leading lady IU, who plays Hae-soo. I am just so happy to see him on screen again after a year! 😄 That being said, Moon Lovers is also reaching its end quite soon and I am pretty sure that he’ll be missed. However, that is not the main point here – the actor graces the November pages of fashion magazine Singles and I love the pictorial’s simplicity! He also posted some of the pictures on his Instagram account 🙂

Lee Jong Suk for L’Officiel Hommes

Lee Jong-suk has been featured on a steady stream of magazines prior to and following his latest drama W- Two Worlds; L’Officiel Hommes is just one of them to showcase the model-turned-actor in another stylish pictorial 🙂 The actor made a cameo on mini drama Gogh, The Starry Night starring Kim Young-kwang, Lee Ji-hoon(1988) and Kwon Yuri as the leads. I am currently in the midst of watching this – I think it’s a fun watch, and subtly sheds light on some issues in the workplace. The drama short will air starting this weekend on SBS for four episodes, following the conclusion of Second to Last Love. He will also be making a guest appearance on upcoming drama Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo in support of his label-mates Lee Sung-kyung and Nam Joo-hyuk. Check out the pictures!

Kim Rae Won for Marie Claire

It is great that actor Kim Rae-won has been garnering more attention since his return to dramaland for legal thriller Punch at the end of 2014. The previous drama project he did before that was A Thousand Days’ Promise in 2011. He received a Producer Award at last year’s drama awards for his portrayal of Prosecutor Park Jung-hwan (Cheers! 😄 ) This year, he graced the small screen for medical romance drama Doctors – anyone misses Hong Hong Hong and his charms? After wrapping up the project, he took to LA to shoot for a feature in Marie Claire’s October issue! I am so glad he is getting featured more on the fashion magazines ❤

New romantic melodrama On The Way To The Airport premiered on KBS this Wednesday, starring Lee Sang-yoon in his return to a public broadcaster after his past two dramas on cable television and Kim Ha-neul in her comeback drama since 2012’s A Gentleman’s Dignity. I have not watched the pilot episodes yet, but it sure looks good from the pretty posters and teasers! Singles has gathered the two leads for their October issue in a pictorial titled Steady Love; they are also on the magazine’s cover!

Lee Je Hoon – CéCi August 2016 Interview

Well, it sure takes a long time for me to complete the translation this time, but it’s finally here! CeCi courted Lee Je-hoon for a laid back pictorial and interview which felt more personal than ever, and of course, with less restriction and more fun! He was not promoting anything at the time of the interview, having concluded his promotion for Phantom Detective recently and taking his sweet time going through scenarios, weighing in his next project. He has made his decision to star alongside Shin Min-ah in the time-traveling romance Tomorrow With You, slated for 2017 airing date on tvn. That will be his comeback drama and his return to the Fri-Sat slot on the channel, one year after Signal. Another special thing about his appearance on CeCi this August is he is featured on the cover for Korean and Chinese edition of the magazine. Check out the interview!

Yoon Si Yoon – ARENA HOMME+ July 2016 Interview

After a long wait, Yoon Si-yoon’s interview for ARENA is out, at last! Too bad the magazine only shared small-sized images for the pictorial online, and I bet that there are lots of B-cuts they did not release :3 I guess we should be thankful that even with Mirror of the Witch coming to an end last week, we still get to see him every Sunday on 2 Days 1 Night. Enjoy the interview!

Yoon Si Yoon – Grazia June 2016 Interview

Almost two years without him gracing our screens, Yoon Si-yoon has been making multiple strides right after completing his mandatory army service: he is currently starring in jtbc’s Mirror of the Witch and joining 2 Days 1 Night as the latest addition to the fixed cast after Kim Joo-hyuk’s departure from the variety. As his fan, I can say that my weekend has been blessed with his appearance on my screen from Friday to Sunday. He donned colourful (and sometimes questionable) clothes for Grazia and the interview has been released. Enjoy!

Lee Je Hoon – Singles July 2016 Interview

I did not expect to have another pictorial of Lee Je-hoon after he concluded the promotion for his latest movie Phantom Detective last month, but Singles have been so generous to court him for another photo shoot, putting him on a plane to Hawaii earlier this month, on the day of Baeksang Arts Awards. Although he did not get to walk on the red carpet or appear at the event with Signal team, at least we get this pictorial…with his slightly longer hair. Me likey.
