Multi-talented star Lee Seung Ki says watching Song Joong Ki or Kim Su Hyun’s acting as a king doesn’t help him at all

The multi-talented star, who was recently cast as a new age king, says watching Song Joong Ki or Kim Su Hyun’s acting as a king doesn’t help him at all.

Lee Seung Gi had an interview on the episode of MBC’s Section TV Entertainment News that aired on February 19.

In the interview, Lee talked about MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday series King 2 Hearts, which he is currently shooting. Lee revealed that he took the role of a king, and reporter Park Seul Gi asked to him, “You know, there are several actors who play the role of a king, including Song Joong Ki and Kim Su Hyun. Do you think watching their acting help you?”

Lee quipped, “Not at all. I will be acting a completely different, unusual, new age king. I’ll be goofing around, doing no work. You must be wondering ‘How come that guy is a king?’” That aroused curiosity about his character.

Lee also talked about actress Ha Jee Won, who plays the opposite him. He praised her saying, “It is a great experience to work with her. She is actually very nice and sweet person.”

Song Joong Ki In Talks To Star In "Martial Arts," Following the Refusal Of Jo In Sung and Kim So Hyun

Song Joong Ki In Talks To Star In

Actor Song Joong Ki is still considering making his appearance in movie "Martial Arts."

On January 30th, Song Joong Ki′s agency, Blossom Entertainment, told Newsen, "We have received an offer to appear in the film Martial Arts, but it′s just one of the many projects that were offered to us." The agency added, "We haven′t decided on anything."

"He will be getting discharged in May. There′s still a few more months left of his military life. We′ll decide on a follow-up project once he gets discharged," continued the rep. "As of now, it′s not time to be deciding on projects. Getting discharged is first."

Taking place in the future where energy is being depleted, Martial Arts is a sci-fi fantasy action movie about a high school teenager who ends up living in a town full of criminals and protecting the secret to infinite energy.

Korea′s CJ EM and China′s CFG, China Film Group will be producing the 20,000,000 dollar movie, and it will be distributed by PegasusTaihe Entertainment.

Martial Arts was initially supposed to be Zo In Sung′s comeback project after he was discharged from the army, but as production became delayed, Zo In Sung left the project. In April of 2014, there was news that Yeo Jin Goo was confirmed to take the role, but the Chinese investment company wanted Kim Soo Hyun, who was rising in popularity due to You Who Came From the Stars. Yeo Jin Goo was suddenly cut from the project, causing much controversy.

When Kim Soo Hyun′s appearance also did not pull through, Martial Arts was put on hold for several months. With Martial Arts offering the role to Song Joong Ki, the public is looking to see what will happen.

A genius guitarist received attention for being Kim Soo Hyun"s doppelganger on "Star King"!

The contestant Kim Woo Tak introduced himself, revealing that he is in his 3rd year of middle school and 16 years old, and was born in 1999, shocking the entire set. The suit that he was wearing was also revealed to be his school uniform. Lady Jane seemed especially upset that he was a minor and kept asking, "Why? Why? Why?", in understandable disappointment.

He was revealed to have started playing the classic guitar for fun when he was 6 years old and won the national guitar competition when he was only in 2nd grade of elementary school. He also won the Seoul Philharmonic national competition when he was in 4th grade as well as the Korean Chamber Orchestra national competition when he was in 5th grade. He will also skip high school and go straight to college at the Korea National University of Arts this year.

Would Kim Hyun Joong Still Be On Tour If He Were An American Pop Star? [Opinion]

News via

Kim Hyun Joong admits to hitting girlfriend once. (Photo : Twitter) The allegiations against Kim Hyun Joong regarding possible physical abuse involving his former girlfriend are disturbing. For many international K-Pop fans, the fact that Kim Hyun Joong continues to tour around the world is even more disconcerting.

However, it is not the fact that he is a Hallyu star that he is receiving special treatment, but the overall issue of his celebrity status. If Kim Hyun Joong were a celebrity in America, he would probably continue to be on tour, unless a video of the alleged abuse surfaced.

Americans appear to have a difficult time justifying support for celebrities who are in the midst of scandals, but can also have a realitively high tolerance for scandals in general.

Many American audiences continue to support celebrities even when there is clear evidence of wrongdoing. For example, rapper Chris Brownhas not witnessed an increase in music sales since his alleged abuse of pop star Rihanna, but his numbers have not drastically decreased either. He remains a commercially viable artist.

While he is not in the midst of an abuse scandal, Canadian pop star Justin Bieber witnessed a display on Tuesday night which attests to his growing unpopularity in the United States. Over the years, Bieber has amassed a rap sheet of criminal charges and allegations, which would prevent most Canadians from entrance into America.

Justin Bieber made a guest appearance during the live taping of Fashion Rocks which was held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on September 9. Justin Bieber was bolstered by the headlining appearance of his mentor, Usher. Fashion Rocks provided the perfect opportunity for him to reach his target demographic, young pop music fans.

Bieber popped out to provide an introduction which started with lukewarm applause but led to resounding booing from thousands of viewers. As someone who was in the audience, I could not help but feel a mix of emotions - mostly embarassment - for Bieber, tinged with the feeling that he was on the receiving end of what he deserved.

If the booing were not embarassing enough, Justin Bieber stripped down to his red Calvin Klein branded undies, in an attempt to gain more attention from the audience. Sadly, this stunt does not deflect from the growing displeasure of American fans regarding his on-going antics and run ins with law enforcement.

What does this incident have to do with Kim Hyun Joong and the growing tide of discontent surrounding his alleged abuse? For Justin Bieber, the disapproval took some time to grow and was not an immediate reaction from the public. He maintained a large part of his fan base, even as it became apparent that he was spiraling out of control. A 2014 article in "New York Magazine"examined the beginning of the push back against Justin Bieber to the bottom of the spiral which has led to booing en masse.

The similarity between Justin Bieber and Kim Hyun Joong is that even though they each face allegations of varying crimes, their celebrity status has allowed for treatment beyond what is provided to the normal citizen. Even though Kim Hyun Joong admitted that he did engage in physical violence against his former girlfriend on one occasion, it appears as though he has received preferential treatment as a celebrity. It is this sense of entitlement that has plagued Justin Bieber and is currently marking the career of Kim Hyun Joong.

On the surface, it is easy to blame the Korean entertainment industry and media for Kim Hyun Joong"s ability to continue touring and performing. Media outlets in tour stops such a Lima, Peru refrained from covering his scandal and highlighted the positive aspects of his performance.

For many Americans who are viewing his scandal from afar, the sentiment that he would not get away with a similar incident in the U.S., reamins strong. However, one only needs to look to the scandal surrounding former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, to gain perspective.

Ray Riceinitially received a two game suspension from the NFL (National Football League) following allegations of physical abuse against his wife, who was his fiancee at the time of the incident.

Pressure against the NFL and the Ravens continued to mount, once a video which allegedly showed Ray Rice dragging then-girlfriend, now wife Janay Palmer from an elevator surfaced. The allegations and the actions involved reached a climax when media outlet TMZ revealed a video tape in which Ray Rice allegedly punches Janay, rendering her unconcious. Until the release of this video, the Baltimore Ravens and many fans continued to support Ray Rice.

In the situation surrounding Kim Hyun Joong, there is no videotaped evidence, only a photograph which was revealed by media outlet Dispatch on August 27. The photograph details the alleged bruises of his former girlfriend, who is being referred to as "A." It should be noted that Dispatch, like TMZ, is a tabloid media outlet.

While many thought this photo would be the final straw for Kim Hyun Joong, he reported to the police station, endured lengthy questioning, and went on with his tour. The punishment he will face following his police statement remains unclear.

Speculation of whether or not he will be able to revive his career in Korea is on-going, but there have not been widespread domestic protests or boycotts against him.

The allegations surrounding Kim Hyun Joong and the way in which the case is being handled, continues to be disconcerting. The case strongly contrasts against the extortion allegations currently being faced by GLAM"s Dahee. Dahee is significantly less famous than actor Lee Byung Hun. She admitted to the allegations and responded to an arrest warrant.

This juxtaposition of justice should be disturbing to most on-lookers, particularly women. Extortion allegations by a less popular female idol against a major actor leads to an arrest warrant and a halt in promotional activities. Abuse allegations against Hallyu star Kim Hyun Joong lead to a summons from the police, hours of questioning, and the ability to appear before an uninformed audience in Peru.
