JYJ’s Yoochun to make big screen debut with ‘Sea Fog’

JYJ’s Park Yoochun will make his big screen debut with a new film ‘Sea Fog’ produced by acclaimed Korean director Bong Joon Ho of ‘Snowpiercer’.

A movie insider revealed on August 19 that Yoochun has been confirmed to join the film cast of ‘Sea Fog’ and is currently working out the details of the contract.

Yoochun will be playing a sailor crew named Dongsik, who tries to keep his noble and pure love, opposing to the captain (Kim Yoon Seok). It is said that the role was initially offered to Song Joong Ki but with his military enlistment approaching, it has now been given to Yoochun.

This is the first time he will be on the big screen as the main character. Yoochun has proved his acting skills in previous hit dramas such as ‘I Miss You’, ‘Rooftop Prince’ and ‘Sungkyunkwan Scandal’

Daniel Henney Is a Classic Heartthrob on the Cover of "Cosmo Men"

Daniel Henney, one of the hottest MVPs in the Asian entertainment industry, graces the cover of the September issue of “Cosmo Men.”

Celebrating its 13-year anniversary, “Cosmopolitan Korea” issued a special “Cosmo Men,” published twice a year, with Daniel Henney at the center of the theme “COOL GUYS’ OUTDOOR LIFE.”

On the cover, he wears denim on denim, his hair slicked back like a teenage heartthrob from the 1950s. Elvis Presley or the foxy guys of “Grease” come immediately to mind. Showing off his cool 6’2″ figure with perfect proportions and broad, masculine shoulders, Daniel gazes right into his fans’ hearts with a soft, sideways stare.

Past “Cosmo Men” covers have been adorned by equally strong industry figures such as T

Queen B'z Makes a Provocative but Controversial Debut with "Bad"

Queen B’z Makes a Provocative but Controversial Debut with “Bad”

With the trend in K-pop being disco or summer, it’s always great to see a group go in a different direction musically, and it’s especially intriguing when it’s a rookie group, in this case Queen B’z. The new rookie group from JS Entertainment released their debut track “Bad,” which has a great Latin flavor to it.

The girls are supposed to have a “noblesse concept” (noblesse is the French word for nobility). Other than their name, I’m not quite sure what that is supposed to entail. The strange part about this group though is not that but rather that four of the five members already debuted in P.O.P Con, another group from JS Entertainment, in November of last year

Song meets fans before military

Actor Song Joong-ki, of the KBS drama "Nice Guy", met with his fans Saturday for the last time before he starts to serve his mandatory military service.

Museum is contemporary, but links to past

Architect Mihn Hyun-jun, left, and artist Choi Jeong-hwa at the new Seoul branch of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art. The museum, which is scheduled to open in November, includes a combination of new buildings and old. Among the old, there is the former Defense Security Command headquarters (the red building to the right) and the Joseon-period Office of Royal Genealogy (to the left, in back). Mihn designed the museum's low-rise web of buildings, underground spaces and courtyards to link flexibly with the various galleries and the old neighborhoods of Samcheong-dong and Bukchon that surround the museum.

Seoul's more recent landmarks, such as the new Seoul City Hall and the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, sparked controversy for their showy designs, which some criticized for neglecting their sites' histories and clashing with their neighborhoods

G-DRAGON to lead ‘Coup d’ e tat’?

G-Dragon, who is celebrating his 25th birthday (26th in Korea) today, revealed a teaser video for his upcoming 2nd solo album.

There are only three colors in the video--- black, white and red. We can also hear the phrase 'since I was born' and a photo of a man split into two emerging from a dark-colored liquid connoting 'birth'. The other photos also suggest a military theme for G-Dragon's new song. At the end of the video, 'Coup d' e tat' is written.

'Coup d' e tat' is a French word which means a sudden termination of a government through a military force and its replacement with another body which is either civil or military.
