    @dear Nancyzak,  thanks for sharing the video of KTH's latest ad, the 12 plus eyeshadow colors.  I noticed that she is not frequently using heavy eye make-up but with this new cosmetic, the bold colors wil definitely enhanced her expressive eyes. The first time I watched her drama Stairway to Heaven,  I already had been impressed how she used her eyes in acting her part as a villain, that sometimes her portrayal is very scary.  :))  :))

    Have you read the news report that the lovebirds Yoon Kye Sang and Honey Lee were seen grocery shopping together?    I hope these two will encourage their best friends-couple to go public as what they are doing.   8->    \m/

    Maybe, close up and personal, the NK waitress in Cambodia looks a little bit similar to her, but it seems that this article is just name dropping, since KTH is so popular in North Korea.   :D ;;)

    About  her as a designer and a model, Rain, being a model already,  had also revealed that  it had been his wish too to be a designer when he launched his Six to Five clothing line -

That’s the way I design and wear the clothes I want to put on.”

    “Activity as a designer and a businessman is too difficult for me yet. I’m doing what I like to do. If you show interest me, I’m filled with gratitude.

    There had also been articles acknowledging that Rain is the idol of  the deceased NK leader Kim Jong-Il's grandson - 


    Kim Jong-il's Grandson Is a 'Rain' Fan

    South Korean singer Rain (file photo)

    An audience of about 4,500 went wild with enthusiasm when the South Korean pop superstar Rain appeared at the Cotai Arena of the Venetian Hotel in Macau at 9 p.m. on June 27. And in the special seats was the 14-year-old son of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il's eldest son Jong-nam.

    A middle school student with close-cropped hair in a white T-shirt, he had come with five South Korean friends from schools in Macau and Hong Kong. The six seats cost 10,800 pataca (about W1.76 million).

    A South Korean resident said Kim Jong-nam bought all the tickets and told his son to invite his friends. "I was stunned to see a grandson of Kim Jong-il's cheer and sing along with a South Korean pop star's latest songs," he said.

    South Korean residents in Macau say Kim Jong-nam (38), his second wife identified as Jang (35), and their teenage son has several South Korean friends in Macau, and until recently they were often seen in a district where South Korean restaurants are clustered.

    But Kim Jong-nam has kept a low profile since his youngest brother Jong-un (26) was chosen as his father's heir apparent around May.

    A source in Macau last Friday said, "He left for Bangkok last week after he found Japanese and South Korean reporters pitching camp at his favorite casinos and restaurants. He'll stay in Thailand for the time being."

    More than 4,500 audiences in Kotai Area hall inside of Venetian Hotel, Macau, on the 27th of last month, around 9pm, were infatuated with Korean star Rain.

    After the first fashion show part for about 30 minutes, Rain appeared on the stage at the next part and sang his hit songs continuously.

    By then, crowds of more than 1,000 audiences sitting in the VIP seats thronged down the stage and were going wild with enthusiasm to Rain’s each action, and North leader ‘Kim Jeong-Il’s eldest son ‘Kim Jeong-Nam’ whose son also joined the crowds.

    This junior high school boy, with a head shaved bald and in his white shirt, sang to Rain with his 5 Korean friends, and these boys’ seat prices were totally 10,800 pataca (1,396.83$).

    A Korean resident said, “‘Kim Jeong-Nam’ was alleged to get the tickets for his son and to make his son invite his friends. Seeing North Korea leader ‘Kim Jeong-Il’s grandson singing South Korea singer’s hit songs and raising cheers, I was startled all of a sudden.”

    ‘Kim Jeong-Nam’ has lived in isolation since his younger brother ‘Kim Jeong-Woon’ was chosen as successor to North Korea leader ‘Kim Jeong-Il’, and Kim Jeong-Nam’ is alleged to stay in Thailand for the present.

    *Korea is a divided country. South Korea is a democratized country, while North Korea is a communist and despotic country.

    Dear @anjjo

    No, I've yet to read the news about YKS and HL. Thanks for informing. Yes, with the YKS and HL openly shopping together and with the recent spate of K-ent and C-ent celebrity couples openly acknowledging their relationships or stepping out/vacationing together, that should nudge Rain and KTH couple to reconsider their silent stance, heheh, hopefully!   ^:)^ 8-> [-O< ;) :D

    I've said before and not tired of saying it again that Rain should seriously revive his fashion designing and business. I've seen the pictures of him modeling his Six to Five designs and I love all the designs. Maybe it's a matter of time before he realise his childhood passion again.  :-bd :D

    I was browsing for some articles on KTH when I chance upon the following online Vietnamese article which I thought we should not miss. What was written is not something new or something that we do not already guess/know, particularly for those who follow the SK showbiz. I've long read about YJH called a thief when he married HGI. He even claimed to be threatened! When Rain and KTH were revealed as a couple, I knew Rain will one day be tagged the same title since he has stolen KTH, the 'It' female celebrity in SK.   :P :D   Let us hope that he is not/will not be threatened in any way!  X_X

      LOL, KTH and her scary stares in Stairway to Heaven. I have not watched the drama but heard so much about it. It was the extreme end to her character in Love Story in Harvard. Heheh, I also did not watch this. Can say that I am only forward looking when it comes to KTH's dramas/movies. STH made KTH a household name in SK showbiz. Her fame rise further with LSIH. 

      I would love to see KTH in a 'bad girl' role one day. She has shown that much of her ability in STH and more recently, Jang Ok Jung Live in Love. I am posting below the fanmade video that I like very much. It captures the scenes of the sly and strong willed JOJ. KTH simply rocks in these scenes! Hahaha, maybe some production house could star both KTH and Rain in their wicked/nasty roles. Mix with what bound to be off the chart chemistry, whoa, we'll go goo-goo ga-ga/mushy over the one daebak rocking drama/movie of the couple! Just to prove my point, I add a fan made video of Rain's Ninja Assassin. It's Lee Hyori's song "Bad Girls" for KTH's JOJ and Rain's "Rainism" that has 'bad boy' for Rain in NA. Wooo... I am feeling the goosebumps already with the imagery killer chemistry!  :x \:D/ :-bd =D> :D

      5041720380_8de4218f58_z.jpg

      Kim Tae-hee appeared on a talk show a while ago the movie "Grand Prix> wooin Yang Dong Geun from the relative times" not fun "was the assessment. That is true. Kim Tae-hee era, armed with a fun and voluble 'nerves of steel' deulhagoneun distance're the one who is far too long. Kim Tae-hee is the most popular stars in front of God to possess the most important virtue but she gives a beautiful appearance, its beauty, boast more talent, create dazzling visual inspection did not offend you to have. So striking looks and brilliant appearance in the interest of many people since, but her show, she is always creating something is a fact that there was a sincere regret. Kim Tae-hee, but falling into the alleys of fun and excitement of a U-turn, or a past itinerary Magpies unleash nostalgia for travelers along the road in front of her, rather than graduated from college only to go straight to move forward step by step, like the pilgrim is a person.

      "Whatever's been asked quite digging. He should know that he knew the style'm 100 percent. "Rockets to stardom, there is a WORLD BY basis, there is no shortcut to become an actor you know that actress Kim Tae-hee is slow, but lazy. Then she picked up the film like a film about the dreams, but instead a variety of ways ranging from a dream to see a movie is worth noting the fact. Spoon plate holes hell bombed dream Exodus and fairy-tale love, a dream, but make real sincere love story, a dream come true for a drastic singing and dancing girls appeared Movie affection choice but to anything that maybe she is When you watch the movement of natural do not you think so.

      1. "Perfect World> (A Perfect World)
      1993 | Clint Eastwood

      5041752952_069047c539_m.jpg

Movies: the exact ambassadors long I do not want to remember the climactic scene from the pop've cried. So that made me cry He was the first film. (Laughter) "
      I dream to live a normal life, but all others are given the usual routine is not given even a boy. The boy discovered the breakout from their own childhood. But this is dangerous and disturbing, but hearts are beating around the bias in the meeting are still a threat. They've dreamed of 'perfect world' and said it was was not particularly likely. Directed by Clint Eastwood, and they were chasing a criminal red station appearances.

      Not all that many people say it is not challenged. Instead of challenging the impossible possible, leading to the precious gift to those dreams fall like rain. Framed for the murder of his wife to wash and moral disgrace dreaming of escape from prison, Andy (Tim Robinson) seemed like a spoon the size of a small

The voices on the stage musical seolmankeum tremendous effort to better hand if you dare If you want to try that movie, I thought. "


      "American Idol> from Jennifer Hudson's desperate effort combines the passion and diva Beyonce's inherent passion for dominance of factors combine to listen to either hand it is difficult to determine. The two women instead of a movie if you can find in the movie euroseoneun the audience would be in near perfect package. After the success of a trio from rural areas, women cross their forty-two jealousy and desire to move through the appearance of Broadway musical of the film brilliantly portrays a pass.

Hopelessly in love when it comes to you're brave. "

      Korean Actress Kim Tae Hee Picks Her 5 Favorite Dramas 

      29/01/13 10:55 PM EST

      Korean Actress Kim Tae Hee Picks Her 5 Favorite Dramas
      (Photo: Courtesy Sweet Power)

      TOKYO ― A fashion design graduate with a reputation for perfection, Korean actress Kim Tae Hee has won plaudits for her roles in several high profile TV dramas, including “Stairway to Heaven”, “Iris” and “My Princess.”

      2011 saw her crossover to debut as a lead in a Japanese TV drama, playing a role she knew only too well - as a star Korean actress visiting Japan in “99 Days with a Star.” Tae Hee is next set to star as a royal concubine in Korean period drama ‘Jang Ok-jeong, Live for Love’, set during the Joseon Dynasty and on SBS from this April.

      "In a feature film I can study and analyze my character within the story based on the finished script, whereas in a TV drama I have to constantly adapt which makes preparation and training more difficult," says Tae Hee.

      "I can honestly say therefore that I like doing TV dramas more because I can happily immerse myself in a character for 3~4 months and monitor how the audience is reacting to the story to adjust and adapt my acting."

      Kim began her career full of confidence in the 2001 feature film “Last Present”, in which she played a younger version of lead actress Lee Young-ae's character Jung-yun, wife of down and out comedian Yong-ki.

      "The director saw me in a fashion magazine and gave me my big break. My dialogue was short and simple so I wasn't nervous, but when I was in front of the camera, my mind went blank. I look back to that day now and realize I knew nothing about acting and I get embarrassed watching my scene from that movie even to this day."

      The turning point in her career came when Kim was cast as Choi Seung-hee, team leader in Korea's National Security Service in espionage drama “Iris” that set the record for the most expensive Korean drama ever made (20 billion won).

      "I love all the characters I've played so far, but if I were to pick out one, it would have to be Choi Seung Hee," said Kim. "Her character is an intellectual, philosophical and seemingly cold agent, but underneath she has the passionate heart of a woman who falls in love. Her mysterious character held the key to the main story and her action sequences mixed well with her romantic qualities to make her irresistible to the audience."

      Kim Tae Hee gave us a rundown of her five personal favorite TV dramas from around the world. (Click ‘next’)

       

      1. "Friends" (1994-2004)

      This icon of 1990s television followed the trials and tribulations of six New Yorker's relationships through the lens of the burgeoning coffee shop culture of the era. "Even though it was made a long time ago, it still brings me so much laughter to this day," said Kim. "Every character is so unique yet they are somehow harmonized and synced together."

      2. "Sex and the City" (1998-2004)

      An older all-female cast of New Yorkers put sex explicitly at the forefront of a primetime show to both acclaim and criticism, taking on sensitive issues like promiscuity and safe sex while representing an emboldened generation of city women. "The narration by Carrie in the story reveals the true heart of a woman in her 20~30s" said Kim. "The lifestyle of the women, the society of New York city and especially the fashion made me fall in love with the story."

      3. "24" (2001-2010)

      With each one-hour episode using real time to tell the story of one day of Counter Terrorist Unit agent Jack Bauer's life over a season, 24's original concept remained fresh for nine years and is set for the big screen in 2013. "The dynamic storyline and fast paced progression of the story kept me up throughout the night. I remember finishing the entire season 1 in one sitting."

      4. "My Lovely Sam Soon" (2005)

      A Korean rom-com that had over half the nation watching its finale, this story of a single woman with a passion for baking but out of luck in love won numerous awards for the cast, especially lead actress Kim Suna. "The 4 main characters weren't stereotypical so its realistic and heartfelt dialogues kept me interested until the end. Also its stylish visual effects and background music made it the "Bridget Jones Diary" of Korea. Its perfect balance between the comedic elements and romantic elements played out very well."

      5. "Glee" (2009-)

      Bringing musicals to the small screen, Glee is a comedy drama set in a high-school glee club that has impacted the music industry with its song selections as well confounding early critics of its seemingly unlikely concept. "First of all its music is absolutely unforgettable and very catchy, the cast's impressive singing and dancing ability were a major factor for me to watch the show" said Kim. "Its story is heartwarming and very positive, and the characters were also very unique and original. And how can I not mention all the unforgettable cameos!"

Images of Jang Ok Jung villain is not easy acting. Original plain and is a good woman fell in love with King as the changing expression of a woman wanted to look convincing. Jang Ok Jung drama to a that seems like one millions viewers authenticity happy i was able to wrap up the shooting.

      About his vehicles, there is not so much written about it but he always use his white van whenever he travels.  Like any adventurous young man, he has a liking for motorcycles.   I remember that JYP  was worried with him whenever he rode his motorcycle, without any back-up in the streets of Seoul. 


      :)) :D   Can't blame his mentor, but now he is matured and cautious for his safety.   Here are some pics
      of him and his motorcycles.

      Hi anjjo, I remember before that he owned an "identical" BMW, colour black. I heard that he did it just to confuse some "paparazzi & stalkers".....He also has MBenz, Porsche, MBenz Jeep & yes, (2) bikes. IDK if there's new one added to all these vehicles. I guess the white van, which we usually seen him ride in is a company car. Here are the vehicles/bikes (he has white & black)  : I remember I saw the black bike when we tried going to JYPE before parked at the parking of the building. We discovered it was his bike because we were told by one of the fans who was also there that time. Hahaha - the black bike needs washing, IDK where did RAIN has been during that time why it was so dusty & there was a little mud in the tires.

      Hi Marusya, thanks for sharing the picture here but this jeep was just a "Fugitive props" - he used this during the drama but not his. Per sighting reports recently, he was seen riding a red jeep also but not a Toyota brand, I guess he acquired a new red jeep this time. L-)

      ‘Rain’ to take aggressive legal action against man who won’t leave his property


      image

      Singer Rain, who recently got into a legal conflict with his tenant designer Park, has decided to take aggress legal actions against the designer for accusations that had no evidence.

      On November 19th a spokesman for Cube DC, Rain’s agency, stated “The tenant has refused to pay Rain the rent payment and has refused Rain’s request for him to move out and has made unsupported statements in order to ruin Rain’s image”.

      He also stated “Rain will not tolerate these actions anymore and will take severe action towards the accusers slander statements.”

      The accuser, designer Park who is to be kept anonymous, has accused Rain of fraud.

      Rain has had previous conflicts with designer Park. On the August of 2009, designer Park had rented a property Rain owned. The designer proceeded to run a gallery within the home well after his rent was due. He even stayed much longer than he agreed to.

      Rain has stated that “Even though the reservation time has ended, he refused to move out.”

      Singer Rain is currently busy with his Japan tour.
