Han Ga-in joins Uhm Tae-woong in movie romance by javabeans | October 12, 2011
Han Ga-in, from last year’s Bad Guy and also Mrs. Vampire Prosecutor (in real life, that is — no, the crime-investigation drama hasn’t taken a suddenly romantic turn), is picking a movie for her next project, her first in seven years. It’s called Introduction to Architecture, which you may recall recently cast Uhm Tae-woong as the male lead. The two leads first meet in an Introduction to Architecture class at college — he’s an architecture major, she’s a music major — and fall in love. Some years later after the hero has become an architect, they reconnect when he takes on a new client, and who should walk in the door but his first love. Aw, I’m such a sap for these lovers-reunite-after-separation stories. There’s something so sweet about the idea that nothing’s really ever over, and that sometimes a love you thought was gone can come back in a natural, cyclical way. Directing is Lee Yong-joo, who’s exploring a different kind of story after writing and directing the 2009 horror flick Possessed. At least let’s hope he is. I’d hate to settle in for a sentimental love story and then get surprised with ghosts and possessions. Introduction to Architecture will begin shooting in December, and plans for a 2012 release.

@kyunii88, You're welcome and thank you so much for the review. I think it is one of the most credible and informative reviews that I have read about this movie so far, since you come from the field of architecture yourself. You would know if UTW's life as an architect in the movie was presented correctly or with exaggerations, by merely comparing it with what you experience in the office and I thank you for sharing them here. I have been seeing your name at the OMG drama thread. Did you watch this because of JJS? Although he only had a short role in this movie, but several reviewers have noticed his outstanding performance. I will be posting those reviews in the future. I have been busy and it's only now that I can update this thread. I hope you can check it when you have the time to know more about the movie. I will try my best to post them chronologically. ^^ Han Ga In to Return to the Big Screen October 12, 2011 Han Ga In is returning to the big screen for the first time in seven years. Han Ga In has been cast in the highly anticipated 2012 film, "Introduction To Architecture" along with Uhm Tae Woong, who will play the role of her lover. On October 12, Han Ga In's agency representative Kim Hyo Jin stated on a phone interview with Newsen, "The decision for her casting in this movie was made yesterday. Talks about this movie have been going on for a while but after we met the director, we knew this was it." "Introduction To Architecture" will be directed by Lee Yong Ju, who is a rising director in Chungmuro (Korea's Hollywood). The movie is about a male architecture student (Uhm Tae Woong) falling in love with a female music major (Han Ga In) when they first meet at an introduction to architecture class. They parted at first but later on, after Uhm Tae Woong becomes a real architect, Han Ga In comes to him as a client and they start their love story once again. The role of the female student in "Introduction To Architecture" is a desirable role for any top female actresses. Therefore, Han Ga In is receiving much attention after her decision to be cast in the movie. Uhm Tae Woong, who is becoming a rising star in the variety show world, has been chosen for the male lead. Han Ga In has also recently been perceived as a woman of loyalty for renewing her contract with her agency, J.One Plus Entertainment. Representatives say, "Many people are giving their interest to this movie. We promise to make a great film with great acting for the fans." Coming back with a movie instead of drama, Han Ga In's return is even more highly anticipated than before. credit: http://zafirahoney.blogspot.com/2011/10/han-ga-in-to-return-to-big-screen.html

On Aug. 29, Gong Hyo Jin, Kim Soo Hyun and IU together with PD Pyo Min Soo, PD Seo Soo Min and writer Park Ji Eun, attended the promotional event for the KBS2 TV drama "Producers" in Shanghai, China. Sohu TV, which owns the copyrights of "Producers" in China, organized the event prior to the local broadcast of the drama. Sohu TV posted a photo of the event on Weibo. Gong Hyo Jin wore a neat black dress, IU wore a bright red dress and Kim Soo Hyun chose a light plaid suit. The three actors who have a love line in the drama, took time to have their photos taken. The "Producers" is an entertainment drama that deals with the story about the work and love relationships that unfold in the KBS entertainment station. The excellent performance of actors Cha Tae Hyun, Gong Hyo Jin, Kim Soo Hyun and IU and the interesting development of the plot led to the popularity of the show. Sohu.com signed a copyright agreement at the Busan Contents Market (BCM) for the broadcast rights of the "Producers" in China. Each episode was reportedly priced at $ 200,000 (about 200 million won). The "Producers" will be aired all over China through Sohu.com http://news.kmib.co.kr/article/view.asp?arcid=0009802115&code=61181811&cp=nv

Because of the medical jargon, I had to wait for the subs before watching Yong Pal. But the strategy of the production worked on me. By releasing the stills of the kiss, my curiosity increased. I watched the drama without subs last night. Although I was thrilled that they finally got a chance to kiss, it's not as enjoyable because I did not understand what they said to each other that led to it. After seeing what they did to Nurse Hwang, it would not surprise me if they will plan to kill Chief Lee next, to get rid of everyone who knew about the murder plot against Yeo Jin. By the way, for those who would want to watch the future episodes of Yong Pal via livestream, this link worked so well for me last night
Whereas before, I had a bad experience watching livestream on some links with the video lagging or stopping and I had to reload the page every so often, the link above worked smoothly. I did not miss any scene. (the only thing lacking for my total enjoyment of watching ep 8 were the subs) Yong Pal still continues to excite me, it's really a thrilling drama with outstanding performances from all the cast. I have been recommending this to my friends. ^^ I'm going to review this ep when the subs come out.
Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Min Ho And Lee Jong Suk Are China's Most Liked Hallyu Stars BY Adrienne Stanley | Aug 26, 2015 (excerpt)
Actors Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Min Ho, and Lee Jong Suk are included in the top 10 of a recent poll which named the Most Liked Hallyu Stars in China. On August 26, the Korean outlet Newsen published the results of a poll conducted by the Chinese publication People's Daily, which was conducted from August 10 through August 18. The results of the consumer and mobile online poll yielded a male-dominated list, which highlighted stars who have prominently appeared in K-Drama, film, K-pop and the variety sector. Variety stars Yoo Jae Suk and Lee Kwang Soo were included within the top 10. K-pop idol groups that were listed as the Most Liked Hallyu Stars in China included Super Junior, EXO, Big Bang, Girls' Generation and CNBLUE. A representative for the Korea Consumer Forum discussed the significance of the poll. "Awareness of popular Korean drama and music in China has been raised through beloved stars who obtained a number of votes to be named in the 'Brand of the Year Award,' Hallyu star sector," said the spokesperson for the Korea Consumer Forum. In its 13th year, the Korea Brand of the Year Award, honors top consumer brands. In 2015, Chinese consumers were designated to select the top stars who have impacted the Hallyu Wave. Actors that were included in the top 10 of the list are those who have held significant roles in popular dramas that have captured the attention of fans beyond Korea. Kim Soo Hyun gained prominence with international audiences through his portrayal of Song Sam Dong in the 2011 teen musical drama, "Dream High." He followed with iconic roles in the heist film, "The Thieves" and his portrayal of a spy in "Secretly, Greatly." While his prior accomplishments are significant, audiences throughout Asia were drawn towards his role in the 2013 fantasy series, "My Love from the Star," which significantly raised his profile as a Hallyu star. credit: http://www.kdramastars.com/articles/94753/20150826/kim-soo-hyun-lee-min-ho-and-lee-jong-suk-are-chinas-most-liked-hallyu-stars.htm
Park Bo Young Is Attracted to Chefs on “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator” ck525 August 24, 2015
Actress Park Bo Young revealed her favorite variety show is JTBC’s “Please Take Care of My Refrigerator.” Recently, Park Bo Young starred in the drama “Oh My Ghost” as Na Bong Sun, a kitchen assistant who gets possessed by a ghost. Her character’s lover is star chef Kang Seon Woo, played by Jo Jung Suk. Since her character’s love interest is a chef, Park Bo Young says she is also interested in men who cook these days. “I enjoy watching ‘Please Take Care of My Refrigerator’ these days,” she said. “I think the chefs are attractive.” “If I were to appear on ‘Please Take Care of My Refrigerator,’ I would have to actually reveal my refrigerator, and I’m too embarrassed to do that. I have a lot of secret food that I don’t want to open up to the world,” she joked. “I need time to prepare myself.” “Though I still have to figure out how, just assume I did a major cleaning of my refrigerator if I ever appear on the show,” she said. Park Bo Young picked Lee Kwang Soo as a fellow actor to appear as a guest with her. She introduced Lee Kwang Soo as a neighborhood friend she occasionally dines with. “Lee Kwang Soo’s refrigerator is probably empty. The chefs would have a hard time,” she commented. credit: http://www.soompi.com/2015/08/24/park-bo-young-is-attracted-to-chefs-on-please-take-care-of-my-refrigerator/
You're welcome, @fidda868. My apologies to Gummy, but I can't help but ship this couple (along with the Healer couple). There are actors that look well together and can perform romantic scenes more convincingly and realistically than others and JJS and PBY happen to be one of those couples. @honeywell, here's another OST link

No wonder it felt so real. Congratulations PBY and thank you. It's emotionally draining to do so and now she is in a withdrawal stage just like the rest of us.
