Oh my God. This is so stupid but so funny. (And I’m putting it in this news bits section, so clearly I’m not helping in letting this ridiculousness spread.) Rain and Lee Jung Jin recently posed in a photo together standing as stiff as boards to prove that Rain is taller than Lee. Or, at least the same height (which looks to me as more of the case).
Lee: Haha. This is so funny. Look – another photographer who can’t get enough of our bromance. Smile!
Rain: I. Can’t. Must. Stand. Straighter. Just. One. More. Centimeter!
A new teaser trailer for My Girlfriend is a Gumiho! Whee!
As another testament to their good friendship, Jun Matsumoto showed up at Shun Oguri‘s radio program “All Night Nippon.” Oguri would be leaving at the end of March, so Matsumoto decided to join as a surprise guest. They met on the set of Gokusen, and supposedly Matsumoto is credited to getting Oguri a part in Hana Yori Dango, as he would only work on the drama if they hired Oguri. On top of that, Matsumoto requested that Oguri guest in his last drama Smile. (Awesomeness… now if they can star in another drama together again…)
The Housemaid is credited as one of the best Korean films of all time… so it is only natural that it gets remaid. (Ha ha – get the pun? Yeah? No? Lame? Ok I’ll stop.) The teaser trailer came out, and you can check it out on dramabeans’ site. The film will be released on May 13, and stars critics-darling Jeon Do Yeon as the housemaid of the title, and the awesome Lee Jung Jae as the philandering husband. Seo Woo stars as the wife (which I think is a little weird because not only is she years younger than Lee Jung Jae, but she looks like a 15-year old next to Lee’s dashing, roguish looks.)
Matsumoto Jun is appearing in another 3-part TV special drama called Wagaya no Rekishi, which also stars actress Nagasawa Masami. The two actors share a kiss scene as they portray lovers kept apart by their family and by the impending typhoon Vera, which is the strongest typhoon ever to hit Japan. (It’s been a while since I’ve seen a MatsuJun drama – and not that I really mind him kissing another actress…except…he’s a really good kissing actor!!! =P)
Consider this a re-tweet. Sort of.*
Jang Geun Suk is to be in the Korean movie “You’re My Pet,” which is a remake of the Japanese drama “Kimi Wa Petto”
What do you do when you are in a library and falling asleep as you try to study for a midterm that’s taking place tomorrow?
Why, read up on Asian entertainment news, of course!
Japanese actress, and recent graduate of Meiji University, Inoue Mao modeled a wedding gown at the 10th Tokyo Girls Collection at Yokohama Arena. She was escorted down the runway with co-star Jonathan Sherr, who was in a tuxedo. The wedding dress she wore was supposedly very similar to the one that she would be wearing in her upcoming movie My Darling is a Foreigner, which will be released in theaters in April 10. The film is based on a manga detailing the author’s own relationship with a foreigner.
