Daesung from Big Bang was involved in a car accident! He was apparently speeding down a highway (though definitely not intoxicated) and hit a taxi that had stopped in the middle of the road. The taxi had been trying to avoid a fallen motorcyclist, and the driver had stopped to check the motorcyclist’s condition. That’s when Daesung’s car hit him. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead on the scene, but it hasn’t been confirmed whether it was due to a previous accident, an accident with the taxi driver, or an accident caused by Daesung. That conclusion will have to wait for the autopsy.
Either way, the lovable member of Big Bang is in trouble for speeding.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not (although I’m not sure how you can’t notice,) but there’s been a crazy short hair phenomenon that I’m not sure is the trend for 2011 dramas or what.
The whole Short Hair Wave is not new – celebs have all been turning to short hair for that new “fresh” look because it’s the easiest way to have a makeover without plastic surgery. Har har. But lately, I’ve noticed that a lot of Korean actresses have been sporting short hair for their roles. It’s not new, but it’s more apparent now that a lot of those pixie-haired actresses are in back-to-back dramas.
It’s none other than Kim Gab Soo – the elder actor extraordinaire who appeared in so many dramas this year. He changed his appearance for the sitcom All My Love where he plays the father Director Kim. The drama takes on a twist in the Kongji-Patji folk tale.
He looks quite fine for drag. Reminds me of Bae Jong Ok in some respects (and he even costarred with her in The World They Live In as the director who held a long torch for her).
