Here is the 5-minute preview of SBS Drama Pinocchio Episode 1

It seems like the family tragedy that strikes Dal Po’s (Lee Jong Seok) childhood and likely the reporting surrounding it might play a role in him becoming a journalist.

My Lovely Girl ends today, and Pinocchio will be taking over its time slot next week!



Inha: When the court is unsure of a case, law demands that we give the defendant the benefit of the doubt. However! During the questioning process, the defendant has revealed to me that he has murdered the victim and doesn’t regret it at all. I cannot bury my conscience, so I have to insist that the defendant is guilty!

(T/N: This part is about how Inha can’t be a lawyer because she can’t lie for her client.)

[The woman who can’t lie]

Dalpo: You’re a lawyer that’s supposed to defend the defendant, but can’t help but blurt everything out.

Woman’s O.S.: Hamyoung-ah, wake up quickly and eat~

Dalpo: Five more minutes… just five more minutes…

Inha O.S.: Dalpo yah!

[The man who lives under a fake name]

Dalpo: You’ve come, Dalpyoung-ah~ You look adorable, hurry up and get into the house~

Dalpo: Dad!

Dalpyung: Stop calling him ‘dad’; who are you, rascal, coming into people’s house and messing around like this!

Dalpo: I need a father. He needs a son. If I disappear now, he would collapse again…

Dalpyung: So we’re just going to keep up this lie? How is this right?!

Dalpo: Why is it wrong?! It’s not hurting anyone. So what if it’s a lie?

Woman O.S.: Who are you?

Dalpo: I’m Choi Inha’s uncle.

[Reality and Truth]

Students: Hey, did you hear, he’s a psycho. […] I heard that his real father is a criminal-

Woman O.S.: He went back into the fire against orders and caused all this tragedy, but now he’s disappeared…

Female Reporter: Did you receive any contact from your father?

Male Reporter: Not coming back home and hiding, is it because he feels guilty?

Jaemyoung: I’m sorry, I’m sorry… he really didn’t contact us.

Male Reporter: Where is he hiding?

Jaemyoung: There’s really no contact from him.

Cha-ok (Inha’s mom): Why did he force his way back into that fire when it was impossible? Is he aiming for a promotion of some kind…

Dalpo (Hamyoung): Father isn’t that kind of person!!

Cha-ok: Are you saying your father didn’t do anything wrong?

Jaemyoung: It’s not that, we’re just saying we don’t know the whole truth yet-

Cha-ok: You’re happy that your father survived, aren’t you?

Dalpo (O.S.): It was a terrible nightmare… Father got into a huge accident and then went into hiding… not long after that, my brother ran away as well…

Mother: Want to come with mom?

Jaemyoung: I promise.

Dalpo (Hamyoung): You’re not lying to me, right?

Man: [something about the incident of Dalpo’s dad, this part is saturi and I really can’t understand it] I’m sure of it! Because I have Pinocchio Syndrome, I can’t possibly lie!

Cha-ok: The image came out well, right? Get a few shots of the ambulance as well.

Cha-ok: After this scene, cut to the shots we took.

Kim Gong-ju: Maybe we should cut the scenes with the children. It’s a bit too cruel, isn’t it?

Cha-ok: That’s why we have to air it, because it’s cruel.

Lee Yongtak: No no no, there’s no way. Cut it.

Gyo-dong: MSC has run so many stories on this already.

Lee Yongtak: That’s why people now call them MSG. All made up stuff and no good for people.

Gyo-dong: Well they call us YGN ‘organic news’ (YooGiNong news).

Lee Yongtak: Organic stuff is good for the body, it’s a compliment!

Gyo-dong: No! No matter how good you are for the body; if the food’s not tasty, no one would eat it! No one! In my opinion, news that no one is watching cannot be called news!

Lee Yongtak: … I suppose so. You have a point.

Gyo-dong: Then we’re keeping the story?

Lee Yongtak: Cut it.

Dalpo: You think broadcasting (news) is a joke. With one sentence, you can send a person to his death in a broadcast. How could you, dare, think that it is something to joke around with?

Inha: Dalpo-yah!

Dalpo: Aigoo.

[A drama about youth and growing up between this man who is living under a fake name and this woman who can’t tell lies]

Inha: Why are you staring at me like that? Because I’m pretty?

Dalpo: Yep, because you’re pretty.

Dalpo (O.S.): Now that I think back, I should have left her then.These are feelings I should never have had, and a person I should never have hoped for. I thought that these feelings will fade as time passes. Once it fades, then I can leave without burden. But that’s just a lie I told myself, just excuses… so that I could stay by her side.

His album Revolution debuted at number sixty-eight on the Billboard chart upon its release. The track originally featured Faustix, Imanos, and Kai. Revolution has grown in popularity due to its soaring female vocals.

Diplo is the founder the music label Mad Decent and is the co-founder of the electronic dance music collaborative group Major Lazer. G-Dragon and T.O.P appeared on a Korean remix of the Major Lazer track Bubble Butt which appeared on the 2013 album Free the Universe.

YG Entertainment recently announced that CL was in the process of working on an upcoming release which would be promoted to audiences in the United States. American listeners have recently become interested in the music of 2NE1 due to the usage of I Am The Best in a commercial for Microsoft.

[English Translation] Lee Seung Gi in Japanese Magazine Anan

[English Translation] Lee Seung Gi in Japanese Magazine Anan

Interview took place in :

“50 FIFTY” cafe

Seoul City, Gangnam-gu Sinsa-dong 646-1

Met Lee Seung Gi, Korea’s“Nation’s Younger Brother” in a coffee shop located at Seoul.

Finally, the Nation’s star who is most loved in Korea is going to debut in Japan! He, a nice guy without scandal came to the coffee shop at Gangnam, Seoul for this interview. Everyone please follow us and let’s imagine having a date in the coffee shop.

Q: Lee Seung Gi san who is super busy, how long do you need to take from the moment you are awake until you leave the house?

A: Approximately 15 minutes. If I wake up, I will on the light, wash my face, set my hair, brush teeth and lastly wear my clothes. To sum up,it is approximately 15 minutes.

Q: Please tell us your strength and weakness.

A: My strength is I will accept all the comments/words from the person I respect. If the person who I have faith in tells me to ‘Do it’ then I will not reject and 100% do it seriously. That is why (I think) it brings me to where I am today. But, it becomes my weakness too by overdoing it. The reason being is once I have chosen to believe that person, then I will be blinded and not able to see the matter around us. Even though some people point out that person’s wrongdoing, I might not be able to think rationally and not be able to see his/her shortcoming. I behave the same too when I am in a relationship.

Q: Have you ever thought to debut as a group?

A: Yes. It is more like to debut as a band instead of a group. Whenever in difficult times, the team members can chat and share the stress. But, you won’t be able to see the multiple sides of yourself if you are not a Solo. And it is quite difficult to form a group now. (Smile) I think it is good to be a Solo as I can see the multiple sides of myself.
