  1. Will Jung Il Woo Star in a New Historical Drama? Jung Il Woo is in talks to appear in the new drama Bossam – Stealing Fate (literal translation). An official from Jung Il Woo’s agency said, “Jung Il Woo was offered a role in new drama ‘Bossam – Stealing Fate,’ and is positively considering it.” Bossam – Stealing Fate tells the story of a person who accidentally kidnaps a princess. The role Jung Il Woo has been offered in Ba Woo, a low-level gangster who is an expert in gambling, stealing, fighting, and kidnapping. He engages in the practice of connecting widows, who had no hopes of getting remarried, with new husbands. When he was young, his whole family was wiped out due to conspiracy, but luckily he escaped, hid his identity, and lived a life of a low-level gangster. Jung Il Woo has always shown great performances in historical dramas, including The Return of Iljimae, Moon Embracing the Sun, and Night Watchman’s Journal. Attention is focusing on whether Jung Il Woo, who is currently starring in JTBC’s Sweet Munchies, will make his comeback to the historical genre.

On July 1, Zico released the EP “Random Box,” with the title track “Summer Hate” featuring Rain. Written and co-composed by Zico, the song is about the irritation that someone feels through the extreme heat of a summer day. As of July 2 at 8:30 a.m. KST, “Summer Hate” had risen to No. 1 on the realtime charts of Melon, Genie, and Bugs. It also ranked at No. 21 on Flo’s realtime chart and No. 56 on Soribada’s realtime chart.

  6. LIM Soo-jung and LEE Dong-wook Contemplating being SINGLE IN SEOUL LIM Soo-jung and LEE Dong-wook are mulling a return to the big screen in the upcoming romantic drama Single in Seoul (literal title). Agencies for both stars have indicated the actors have received offers and are looking upon them favorably. The film will be directed by PARK Bum-su, a filmmaker who previously gained attention for the romantic comedy Red Carpet (2014). The story follows two very different singles who meet through a work project. LIM is in talks to play Hyun-jin, an editor in charge of a series of essays entitled ‘Single in the City’. Meanwhile LEE has been offered the part of Young-ho, a freewheeling bachelor who is a popular influencer and lecturer. He is one of the writers penning an essay for Hyun-jin, but he also happens to be her college senior. LIM Soo-jung, known for classics such as KIM Jee-woon’s A Tale of Two Sisters (2003), PARK Chan-wook’s I’m a Cyborg, but That’s OK (2006) and HUR Jin-ho’s Happiness (2007), most recently appeared in the indie drama Mothers (2018), another Myung Films project. LEE Dong-wook is a popular star mostly known for his TV work, including a supporting role in the 2019 series ‘Search: WWW’, which featured LIM in the lead. He has also occasionally appeared on the big screen, in films such as The Recipe (2010) and The Beauty Inside (2015). Prior to Red Carpet (2014), which starred YOON Kye-sang and GO Joon-hee, PARK wrote the dramatisation for BONG Man-dae’s comedy Sex, Lies, and Videotape (2012). Single in Seoul is scheduled to go before cameras this summer once casting has been completed. Lotte Entertainment is in discussions to come on board as financier and distributor. credit : http://www.koreanfilm.or.kr/eng/news/news.jsp?pageIndex=1&blbdComCd=601006&seq=5367&mode=VIEW&returnUrl=&searchKeyword=

  11. These 8 Stars’ Real Names Are So Unusual, Koreans Mistake Them For Stage Names Even Koreans struggle with Korean names sometimes. Korean names may sound unusual to many unfamiliar foreigners, but some of those names even sound unusual to Koreans themselves. These eight idols all have real names that are so unique, even Korean netizens mistake them for stage names. 8. Go Soo Around 15% of the population has a strange gene variation that makes cilantro (also known as coriander) taste like soap to them. Hopefully actor Go Soo isn’t one of them, because his name literally translates to coriander in Korean. Like Sandara Park, Go Soo doesn’t have a two-syllable first name. His whole first name is simply Soo, but combined, his first and last names spell out the herb. “Gosoo” is also a Korean slang term used to described skilled gamers.

The drama’s production team commented, “The actors showed off their strong acting skills and great chemistry from the first script reading.
