Kim Hye Sung (Unstoppable High Kick) has announced that he will enlist in early 2011, which is earlier than expected since he’s only 22. Most stars enlist as late as possible, since when they’re in their early-twenties they’re already making a name for themselves. He’s a solid actor, although he hasn’t done anything that would catapult him into perhaps Lee Min Ho-levels of fame just yet. But it’s scary that he’s a young lad and enlisting at this time, considering what happened just yesterday in South Korea.
And, the South Korean Red Devils are no more… They lost to Uruguay 2-1 today during the Round of 16. Oh boy was the goal struck by Lee Chu Young something!
Anyways, another cast member has been added to My Girlfriend is a Gumiho – Hong Sisters’ alum Byun Hee Bong (God of Study, the sickly grandfather in My Girl) will star as Lee Seung Gi’s grandfather. I’m betting that he’s going to be the lovable, amusing grandfather who loves Shin Min Ah‘s gumiho, and will constantly slap his dorky grandson on the head.
Lee Seung Gi also changed his twitter profile to twitter.com/sbschadaewoong. In case you’re following.
Not that surprising, considering someone of her caliber. Her skate was really amazing in the sense that it was a true performance. Her transitions were smooth and her jumps were high and fast. Actually, everything in her performance was fast. There was nothing missing from her skate – no mistakes, and everything was clean. Her limbs looked so long – perhaps because she kept them loose and relaxed, making her whole performance graceful.
Here’s hoping that the Olympics website does not crash as the 9,000 angry emails get sent from South Korea.
Assuming you’ve watched, or even if you haven’t you will hear about it soon, the 3000m short-track speed skating for women’s was tonight. As expected, the South Korean team led, aggressively making their way from third to first. The Chinese women’s team were favored to win (although I don’t know why), but they lagged behind in second despite their early lead.
The reason? Near the final laps during the switch off from one skater to the next, the South Korean speed skater nudged the Chinese speed skater with her skate, pushing the Chinese woman out sideways just a bit, but enough for South Korea to get further ahead.
I am going to preface this post by saying I am expressing my opinion only, however biased I may sound.
Last night was the 1000m short track final, with the two Koreans Lee Jung Su and Lee Ho Suk winning gold and silver respectively, and Apolo Ohno winning the bronze. I’m sure the Koreans are very happy because all of their countrymen who made it through to the end won the top two positions, and so Ohno is faultless for winning bronze. The week before during the 1500m race, when Lee Ho Suk and Sung Si Bak wiped out, there was a negative backlash against Ohno for it. Continue reading →
