Ji Soo has opened up about how its like to be co star of Kim Hee Sun who is 16 years old older than him in real life

News via soompi.com

In a recent interview for MBC, young actor Ji Soo, born in 1993, was asked about his chemistry with actress Kim Hee Sun who was born in 1977. In the drama Angry Mom, Ji Soos character, Bok Dong, is in love with Jo Bang Wool, the 18-year-old alter ego of Jo Kang Ja, played by Kim Hee Sun. In the drama, Jo Kang Ha has gone undercover as a high school student in her daughters school to defend her daughter against bullies.

Ji Soo explains that its easy to believe that Kim Hee Sun is a high school student because she is so pretty and looks like she is in her 20s. When she is wearing her school uniform, I really see her as Jo Bang Wool, says Ji Soo. He has no trouble focusing on his character and his relationship with Jo Bang Wool. He adds,Bok Dong cant help but fall for her because [Kim Hee Sun] is so pretty and fits the [character of Jo Bang Wool].

Ji Soo also reveals in the interview that he ad-libbed a line in drama in which Bok Dong almost confesses his feelings to Bang Wool. In the scene, Bok Dong tries to dramatically reenact a typical K-drama confession scene. He asks if she likes him and then starts to say, I lik, but since it is his first time confessing and he is nervous, he ends up just saying her name- Jo Bang Wool- and walks away embarrassed. The word for like in Korean starts with the jo sound, which is the same sound that starts Jo Bang Wools name.

Super Junior’s Yesung Is the Most Real Estate Savvy K-Pop Star

Yesung does not have the most money invested in real estate, but by selling it at an opportune time he was able to make the highest profit. Other stars on the list included Super Juniors Kyuhyun, who owns a building worth 7.3 billion won (6.7 million USD), and KARAs Seungyeon, who owns one with a value of 4.9 billion won (4.5 million USD). However, note that these numbers dont mean theyve made money off the properties.

In comparison, Yesung has done very well with his recent real estate investment. He bought a building four years ago for 750 million won (686,000 USD). When he sold it recently, he made a profit of 880 million won (804,000 USD)!

[Interview] Public Starts To Warm Up To "real Men" Star

[Interview] Public starts to warm up to "Real Men" star

News via hancinema.net

Comedian Kim Young-cheol, who debuted 17 years ago, has been consistent about one thing: exaggerating his words, actions and impersonations of celebrities such as pop star BoA or veteran singer Ha Chun-hwa.Some find his impersonations funny, but at the same time there are others who fail to warm to him. After all, Kim is not the most handsome guy in the world. For this reason, even though he is someone who has given his all in everything he does, Kim certainly has his share of haters.But his recent gigs on MCB"s military-themed reality show "Real Men" and successful long-running entertainment show "Infinite Challenge" have changed his image. In "Real Man" in particular, Kim is killing two birds with one stone - being the funny guy in the crowd but also showing his somewhat serious, sincere side by giving 100 percent during the training program.In a recent interview with Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of Korea JoongAng Daily, Kim spoke nonstop in his loud, high-pitched voice, just like on TV. "I have been criticized all my life for being chatty and loud", he said. "It was like that when I was in high school, and also when I went into the military".Kim said he hasn"t changed a bit but that people"s responses have changed. "I have ranked as the No. 1. searchword on web portals, and there hasn"t been a time in my career when there were so many news articles on me", he said excitedly. Q. How do you feel about your sudden, newfound popularity?A. It feels strange and unreal. I"m doing things that I have been doing all throughout my comedy career, but I"m seeing a sudden surge of news articles on me, and those articles are making the top news on web portals. I heard everyone has an "up" in life at least once, and also a year when things just work out. I guess, for me this year is the one.In particular, people seem to like seeing you on "Real Men".Yes. It"s actually my first time having a regular gig on a weekend entertainment show. It"s also my first time participating in a reality show. I"m doing what I usually do, but I think it"s just different doing it in a studio and doing it outside - at a military camp in this case. I have been chatty and overdoing things all my life - in high school and when I went into the military. That"s why I was always the one scolded the most by instructors.It"s hilarious how you are scolded mostly because your teeth are showing and because you can"t stop laughing.Yes. I can"t really [physically] close my mouth anyway. So it was funny when I was told not to show my teeth. I couldn"t stop laughing. In fact, this is the first entertainment show that I"m in where I"m not supposed to laugh. If I try, I can only close my mouth for 10 seconds, but after that it opens, just naturally. It"s because of my oral structure. I can"t help it.Some people say your comedy style, which is mostly impersonation, has a limit and that people tire of it easily.That is one of the reasons why I chose "Real Men", because it"s not scripted; we just show what we"ve got in a given situation. I thought I could show a different side of me. Also, people are bound to have their preferences when it comes to comedy. For instance, when I do my impersonation of Ha, some people say please stop but some people find it hilarious. As long as people know I"m trying and working hard, that"s fine with me.BY KIM YEON-JI [[email protected]]

Jackson states, “No matter what you say, a lie detector will always claim you lied.” He confidently says, “Yes,” expecting for the lie detector to say his is lying. However, contrary to his expectations, the machine’s verdict is that he is telling the truth. Afterwards, the MCs and guests frame Jackson as if he has a crush on Youngji.

The MCs then ask Jackson, “When did you feel attracted to Youngji?” to which Jackson says, “Honestly? When we first met,” causing everyone to burst in laughter over the cringeworthy yet sweet confession.

Next, Youngji receives the same question. She decides to follow Jackson’s advice and says, “I have seen Jackson as a man.” As expected, the machine states that she is telling the truth, causing an odd sense of love in the air.
