Another thing I like about Lee Je-hoon’s interview is how consistent he is with his answers. He still think of himself as someone who is not fun to be with, but he is like a wholly different person when it comes to his favourite subjects: movies and acting. I think a person looks the best when s/he is talking about what s/he loves the most, with all the passion and enthusiasm for the interests. The actor talks a bit more about Signal in the interview with ELLE, also sharing about his (possible) ideal type. Read on and enjoy the interview^^
Today is chock full of goodies because it’s raining pictorials left and right! The highlight of the day (for me at least) has to be Lee Je-hoon, who has not one, but two magazine spreads for the upcoming month of May. He has started promoting for his upcoming drama Detective Hong Gil-dong/Phantom Detective and that explains the sudden flurry of news and pictorials of him ELLE chooses a darker indoor shoot for his feature in the magazine, whereas GQ takes him outside for bright and refreshing shots under the sunshine. Check out the released pictures so far, with more to come (hopefully)! He will also appear on Please Take Care of My Refrigerator with Kim Sung-kyun on the 9th and 16th of May, and on Vapp movie channel tomorrow at 4.30 PM KST.
ELLE Korea has teamed up with Austrian luxury crystal jewelry brand Swarovski and Sulli for a special White Day pictorial, and the end product is just stunning. Sulli looks lovely and enchanting as the spring Cupid, adorned with simple yet eye-catching jewelry. I love the pastel colours used in the shoot because they remind me of cotton candy! I hope ELLE will release more shots later, and this pictorial can be seen in ELLE’s upcoming March issue, as well as on Swarovski Korea’s Facebook page.
2015 has been an incredible year for Hwang Jung-eum, with two very successful dramas Kill Me, Heal Me and She Was Pretty as well as a romantic comedy film My Sister, The Pig Lady. Both her projects in dramaland especially have garnered lots of love from fans and she has gained more popularity and attention as a result! Coincidentally, the two dramas this year aired on the MBC broadcast network and she looks set to continue this streak with upcoming drama Tyrant on the same channel, which will reunite her with the writer of Incarnation Of Money and Giant if she signs on. After her dramas ended I thought she went to Prague, the capital of Czech Republic for a holiday; but it was also for a photoshoot with ELLE! If you follow her on Instagram, you can see some photographs she took while she was there 🙂 The pictorial is for the magazine’s January 2016 issue, and some shots have been released.
Someone once asked me,”Who is your favourite actor?” To be honest, I cannot provide a definite answer to that question until now. I just can’t pinpoint which actor has captured my heart wholly, because there are just too many of them. Tee-hee! I guess it’s okay not to be faithful when it comes to this, right? October will be a great month, because the magazines are so generous in supplying all the eye candies to us! It’s raining guys I love, and it’s indeed an early Christmas for me!
Mystery crime movie Detective: The Beginning is finally set to open in South Korean cinemas on 24th September. Starring Kwon Sang-woo and Sung Dong-il, it tells the story of family-oriented man Kang Dae-man (Kwon Sang-woo) who runs a comic book store and has a great interest in mystery novels. He gets on Detective No’s (Sung Dong-il) nerves when he pokes his nose into police affairs…until one day when Dae-man’s detective friend, Joon-soo (Park Hae-joon) gets arrested for murder. Detective No and Dae-man end up working together to solve the case. I really like action movies so I am looking forward to this one! The posters, stills and press pictures have been released. Check them out 🙂
There aren’t many child actors who can sustain their popularity as they grow up like Yoo Seung-ho and Lee Hyun-woo (just to name a few), and Yeo Jin-gu is no doubt joining the band of grown up child actors making names both in big and small screens. He has a relatively successful career in his tenth year as an actor despite being only 19 in Korean age, and it will be fun anticipating how far he will go in the future. His latest movie, The Long Way Home with Sol Kyung-gyu will hit the cinemas this September, and the boy is being featured in the September issues of ELLE and VOGUE.
I didn’t expect for ELLE to release another batch of pictures for Ji Sung’s pictorial, and they’re being generous this time around. I’m grateful not just because of those shots, but also the second full interview which came along with them! I decided to share the interview because it’s thoughtful and entertaining to read 😉
Leads of the upcoming Fri-Sat drama Beloved Eundong are featured in the June edition of ELLE magazine, as the drama gears up for its premiere next week. The drama will be Kim Sa-rang’s first drama in four years since Secret Garden, while Joo Jin-mo is heading to cable channel after Empress Ki. Both of them are lovely and poised in the pictorial and I am welcoming the tradition of having jtbc’s drama leads doing pictorial to promote the drama!
Yeay, early birthday presents for me! New magazine spreads featuring Park Seo-joon, Son Ho-joon, and Im Seulong are released today, and I couldn’t be happier! They are posing for the June issue of magazines ELLE, ARENA, and Singles respectively. Park Seo-joon has just finished promoting his latest movie The Chronicles of Evil (with Son Hyun-joo and Ma Dong-seok) while Son Ho-joon continues his stint in variety shows, with the current one being a cooking show on tvn. As for Seulong, his first solo single ‘Mood Swing’ is to be released on 22 May.
