Jang Geun Suk's Gift Worth 36 Million Won to “Love Rain” Staff
Jang Geun Suk showed his appreciation to all the “Love Rain” production staff with gift certificates worth over 36 million won (approx. $30,000 USD), local media OSEN reported on June 11.
An official from the “Love Rain” producers told OSEN, “Jang Geun Suk gave a 300,000 won ($300 USD) gift certificate to each of the 120 staff members to celebrate the end of ‘Love Rain.’”
“Jang Geun Suk wanted to give a special gift to all the staff who worked so hard for the entire drama series. The drama itself may not have been the biggest hit, but the overall chemistry and team work was by far the best. It was his way of showing appreciation to the production team for the long recording schedule,” the official added.
Another official was quoted as saying, “You don’t see an actor present such a special gift too often. It’s worth a lot of money too, but we thought it was very Jang Geun Suk-style to find a gift that’s not too fancy or too boring.”
Meanwhile, Jang Geun Suk is planning to continue his “The CRI Show 2” in July, starting from Seoul and four cities in Japan, including Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka. His first Japanese regular album, “Just Crazy,” hit #1 on both the Oricon’s daily chart and weekly chart.

An unexpected pair, Dal Shabet”s Subin and F.T Island”s Hongki, came together recently for a collaboration cover of Dal Shabet”s latest track, “Joker“!
They performed the rock version, but don”t let the name fool you. Despite F.T Island”s recent promotion with a heavy rock concept that might have you suspecting some guitar banging and energetic drumming in this rendition, this is more of soft rock, a soothing version that is super easy on the ears and enjoyable regardless. . ...

Nicole is sporting a very interesting new hair color for her upcoming solo debut in Japan with “Something Special.” It is primarily purple, but has a tinge of an ashy gray hue to give it an interesting look overall.

Urban Zakapa released the music video for their prerelease song “Get“!
The song features the popular rapper Beenzino who is always generous with his punchlines, and this time is no exception. The MV, with its cool blue hues, is a stark contrast to the light-hearted, carefree feel of the song. I was actually hoping to see Beenzino strut his “swag” in the video, but instead my eyes feasted upon a gender-ambiguous construction worker with lean muscles. He(?) actually turned out to be a really handsome girl. Uh…awkward. . ... Read more
