The Increase In Korean-Chinese Celebrity Relationships

The Increase In Korean-Chinese Celebrity Relationships

(Photo : *) A recent article published through the Korean outlet Joins analyzed the increase in Korean-Chinese celebrity relationships and marriages. Writer Kim Yeonji compiled a list of three high-profile couples for the article including Song Seung Heon and Liu Yifei.

Audiences have been intrigued and thrilled to watch the real-life relationship unfold between the stars, who met on the set of "Third Love." The couple publically confirmed that they were dating on August 5 and Song recently confessed his love for Liu on Chinese television.

While Song and Liu are currently a hot item, they reflect a growing trend in relationships involving Korean-Chinese stars.

In March 2014, actress Chae Rim confirmed that she was dating Chinese actor, Gao Ziqi. The article published by Joins notes that Chae and Gao met while filming the Chinese drama, "Lee Family." Promotional activities for the series created a situation where they worked closely together, even after filming was completed. The couple later married in October 2014, in a ceremony that was held in Beijing, China.

Director Kim Tae Yong met actress Tang Wei while filming the 2010movie, "Late Autumn." After the film was completed, the director and actress continued to meet. Tang Wei is recognized for her roles in "Lust, Caution" and the sequel to "Finding Mr. Right." She and Kim Tae Yong married in July 2014.

As Korean-Chinese co-productions continue to gain prominence, it is likely that other celebrity relationships like these will form. While the multicultural aspect of these unions were once frowned upon, the Hallyu Wave could be aiding in growing acceptance from both Korean and Chinese nationals.

EXO’s Sehun has been reportedly the only Korean celebrity to win the Belly Button Challenge launched by China

News via soompi.com

EXO’s Sehun Is The Only Korean Star to Pull Off China’s ‘Belly Button Challenge?’ On the July 3 broadcast of Mnet’s “Heart-A-Tag,” MCs Tiffany of Girls’ Generation and model Lee Chul Woo introduced China’s recently trending ‘belly button challenge’ as the main item of the show’s hashtag battle segment.

The trend that has been gaining attention online, known as the ‘belly button challenge,’ is a challenge that requires a person to wrap one arm behind their back, around to the front and touch their belly button. It is said to stand as a way of showing that one possesses an ‘ant waist,’ s-line figure, although this supposed claim has yet to be proven.

Tiffany expressed her confusion about the latest viral challenge, asking, “What I don’t understand is, why exactly do you have to take a picture while doing that pose?” However, after her co-host convinced her to try it with him, both Tiffany and Lee Chul Woo made an attempt at the challenge. At the end of their efforts, neither of them were able to successfully touch their belly button.

Lee Chul Woo then introduced EXO’s Sehun as the only star in Korea to have successfully pulled off the challenge, and revealed a proof shot that Sehun shared on his SNS.

Can Korean Stars Have Celebrity's Personality Rights?

Can Korean Stars Have Celebrity's Personality Rights?

Can Korean stars protect their image online from the shopping mall's widespread use of celebrities image without permission to advertise their products?

Surprisingly, the Supreme Court has ruled against a host of lawsuits filed by Korean stars over their publicity rights, saying that this kind of use of celebrity images is legitimate in Korea. Publicity rights refer to exclusive property rights to economic benefits from a person’s portrait and name.

The top court dismissed Tuesday actress Song Hye-kyo’s suit against six shopping mall operators for using her name and photos to promote their accessories.

The shopping mall owners had posted pictures of Song wearing earrings in SBS’ drama “Winter, The Wind Blows,” which aired in 2013, and sold “Oh Young earrings” named after Song’s character in the soap.

The court rejected Song’s suit on the grounds that she could not prove that she had suffered losses.

Earlier, other celebrities including Miss A’s Suzy and After School‘s Uee also filed similar lawsuits, claiming the violation their publicity rights. All lost their cases.

“In order to protect celebrities’ publicity rights, legislation should come first. When the relevant bill pending in the National Assembly is passed, publicity rights can be completely recognized,” attorney Jeong Chul-seung said.

Han Yeseul emphasizes her slim figure by wearing all black. She brightenes up her dress with a contrasting green jacket and a few bright color points.

(The color black is perfect for highlighting your figure)

Yoona showed off her cute side by wearing a short black skirt with a oversized light blue jacket. She livens up the style as a whole with a point small yellow hand bag that matches the graphic print on her jacket.

(Even a small accessory can change the tone of a wardrobe)

(Oversized jackets can be used give a fashionably cute feel)

These two beauties wore completely contrasting styles.

Hyoyeon contrasted her greyish hair with bright colors and playful patterns while Seohyun went for a more chic look with black sunglasses, black hair, and everything else white colored.

(Wear clothing colors that suit your hair color.)

Baro tried on a different style from his usual dandy/playful style. He wore a oversized coat with short fur and a beige colored fedora.

(Donning a classic item such as a fedora can give your outfit a fresh feel)

(Don’t be too afraid of flashy looks, as long as it matches your atmosphere)

Junsu donning bright blue hair for his new album toned down his look with a darker blue jacket and black shirt and sunglasses.

(Too much theatrics can look weird. Tone down an attention grabbing feature with simplicity in the rest of your attire.)

A great way to look fashion smart is to match your outer wear such as a jacket or cardigan with your shoe color. Especially if the shoes are unique or catching. As seen in the photo below Kai looks fresh and clean with a white jean jacket and fabulous sandal shoes.

Korean Celebrity Near-Death Experiences: Stars Who Almost Died

News via koreaboo.com

Dealth is always lurking in the dark waiting to reach out and grab us; but sometimes, luck has saved these idols from dealth itself.

Yunho was once handed a drink (filled with superglue) by an anti-fan disguised as a fan. He realized something was wrong with the drink halfway and was immediately rushed to the hospital. He doesn’t remember much because he fainted soon after he drank the contaminated orange juice but according to members he coughed up blood on his way to the hospital. He was able to recover completely from the incident. However, he said he couldn’t drink orange juice for a long time because he was traumatized after the incident.

Below is an actual picture of the orange juice and if you look carefully you can see the hardened glue near the top of the bottle.yunho 2

Noh Hongchul was randomly assaulted in front of his house in 2008. The culprit was suffering from a mental disorder and claimed that he felt as if Noh Hongchul was trying to harm his father whenever he saw him on TV. Noh Hongchul did not retaliate and took the beating to not provoke the culprit further. Several bones were broken including his ribs, and the assailant had a knife concealed in his pocket. Luckily the police took the man into custody and Noh Hongchul was saved.

Despite the brutal attack, Noh did not wish to press charges, but rather help the man get over his mental condition.

In 2009, during “Music Bank” the stage lighting apparatus and frame collapsed, hurtling towards Onew. Startled and shocked, Onew fainted on the spot and could have been crushed below it if Kyuhyun and other staff didn’t grab the supports and prevent it from falling on him.

In 2007, Super Junior’s van was involved in a severe traffic accident that resulted in a few of their members getting injured. Of all the members however, Kyuhyun was most severely injured.

Kyu Hyun was shot out of the car when the accident happened and the force dragged him on the road for approximately 4~5m. Much of the flesh on his legs were torn off and all his ribs and his hipbones were shattered.

When he was rushed to the hospital, the doctors told his parents, “Your son may die. Even if we perform surgery which involves opening a hole in his throat he only has 20% chance to live.” At the doctor’s words, his father (who had previously been dead set against his singing career) begged the doctor to find an alternate way so his son could sing when he recovered. The doctor found an alternative method and Kyuhyun fully recovered.

Against all odds Kyuhyun pulled through!

In 2013, Son Hoyoung’s girlfriend was found dead in Son’s car. She had committed suicide through gas poisoning by lighting up a coal briquettte while inside the vehicle.

Soon after, Son Hoyoung attempted to commit suicide in exactly the same manner. However, the car caught on fire and Son in his groggy state had a change of heart and escaped the vehicle before he fainted.

He was rushed to the hospital and spent more than a week recovering and later in an interview he stated that he had suffered from depression and felt alone. He felt as if he had no one to count on and his girlfriend’s death pushed him over the edge. Since than, he has recovered and is now active as a part of the re-unified god.

Big Bang’s Seungri was close to getting severely injured on multiple occasions. Once in the early stages of Big Bang’s career a firework exploded into Seungri’s face while he was performing. Seungri barely jumped out of the way but still received burned and was rushed to the hospital. He says that ever since he is scared of fireworks.

More recently he was involved in an accident during which his car crashed into a guard rail and was flipped over.

Thankfully he made a full recovery after spending time in the hospital.

Dalshabet of Subin had an extremely close call when during a performance, the stage collapsed under her feet. While she was falling her face smashed into one of the outlets for fireworks. As a result she had to get a total of 16 stitches inside her lips from the damage. If she had been even an inch closer to the outlet she could have suffered irreversible injury or worse…
