Song Hye Kyo and Yoo Ah In for W

Their friendship is a well-known secret to the fans of kdramas, especially after the highly anticipated cameo Yoo Ah-in had in Song Hye-kyo’s hit drama Descendants’of the Sun last year as a birthday gift for her, hence it’s not a surprise W Korea nabbed both of them to be featured on the cover of the March issue for the magazine. Being both fashion icons and trendsetters, the pair is ethereal and dreamlike in the pictorial, which is accompanied by interviews with them. Check out the shots!

December Spreadelicious: The Cover Men

It’s already holiday season for the magazines as their December edition slowly make their way into the market, and this means new pictorials for us! A number of male stars have been chosen to be the cover models for the magazines and I find it a rare occurrence since most of the time, the covers are dominated by female stars and models. I’m just happy to see a pictorial but I won’t complain at all for this feast!

Magazine Monday – Yoo Ah In

Celebrating his 30th (Korean) birthday last Tuesday, Yoo Ah-in is leaving behind a memorable track record before his army service, which will probably be due some time next year. Veteran rakes in more than 13 million admissions while The Throne has attracted more than 6 million moviegoers to date. His drama Six Flying Dragons premiered last week, leading the ratings battle for the Mon-Tue slot. I think it’s fitting to feature him on this week’s Magazine Monday since we will be seeing him mostly in sageuk garb in the next six months 🙂

October Spreadelicious: The Guys I Love

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!

More Teasers for Sado/The Throne

August is coming to an end soon, which means September will be here with lots of new offerings! Although it will be another long wait for the movie to be subbed, the thought of getting to watch Sado/The Throne alone makes me so, so excited. The main trailer has been released yesterday following the first teaser and character teaser before, and the production conference was held last week, with Director Lee Joon-ik and actors Song Kang-ho and Yoo Ah-in in attendance. But the reason I’m posting the teasers in a separate post? Moon Geun-young.
