Jo ready to marry, but not settle down

Jo In-Seong said he wants to marry a woman he can lean on.

"It is true that the age to get married is coming, physically", the 31-year-old actor told several local media outlets on Friday. "So, I am thinking a lot about marriage".

Jo, who gained footing in the entertainment scene as a commercial model in 1998, had rarely talked about marriage before.

"Men are children to the end. 'My mother says that she has raised three sons including my father", said Jo, who has an elder brother.

"I want somebody that would adore me even if I am not mature, and someone whom I could lean on, rather than that who leans on me".

Jo made a comeback as a television drama actor after nine years with SBS drama "That Winter, the Wind Blows" which ended last week

[Interview] Jo In-seong, “Song Hye-kyo is beautiful, that’s it”

"I had nail care to express my emotions with my hands"

Jo In-Seong who just finished the drama "That Winter, the Wind Blows" said, "I don't want to star in anything like that for a while". This drama was a first since the movie "A Frozen Flower" 5 years ago. He seemed sad to let Oh Soo go as he said, "The drama lingers so much that I called the writer, Noh Hee-kyeong the day after the last shoot and cried on the phone. "That Winter, the Wind Blows" is something I put more effort in than a movie". He also said, "Song Hye-kyo is beautiful enough for any man to want".

- How does it feel to finish your first come back project in 5 years?

"I called Noh in the morning after watching the final episode and cried for a while. It felt weird as feelings of sorriness and dejection co-existed

Performance groups tackle youth issues to secure future fans

Performance groups at the National Theater of Korea are staging a musical, dance performance and even a changgeuk (Korean traditional opera) for children and families. Provided by the organizers

Across Seoul, performance groups are shifting their focus to an oft-neglected group - children - in hopes of enlarging their viewership and addressing social issues relevant to the younger generation.

In "A Shuttle Boy Wearing Red Shoes", the National Dance Company aims to address the always-serious issue of school bullying through performance. The title is derived from a Korean term that roughly translates as "bread shuttle". It describes students forced to run errands for bullies. A common task for a shuttle boy or girl is running to the nearest store to buy bread or other snacks.

It is the company's first production aimed at youth and will address bullying via characters from famed storybooks by Hans Christian Andersen
