  1. Hello, it's been a while. Sorry, I got busy with real life matters.

    Thank you to everyone updating the thread. :D

    Today is Kim Soo Hyun's birthday and this article is for him and for all of you. ^^

    Kim Soo Hyun, A Man Everyone Wants to Watch
    Kim Soo Hyun's interview for Allure magazine dated March 27, 2012

    Kim Soo Hyun, A Fantastic Man
    24 years old, dignified yet humble.

    Q: Have you realized your popularity? What do you think is the best part of it?

    A: I have seen that my schedule has increased tremendously. Shooting of advertisements, interviews, my schedule has incessantly been tight. Then, when I search the internet, news about me often stand out. I don't know, I still cannot feel it, but I know I have reached this position largely because of the fans.

    Q: How much different is a day these days as compared to the past? Slightly publicized?

    A: Drama shootings, commercial shootings, interviews, photo shoots are constantly being repeated. It's demanding, but I'm grateful that the fans want me.

    Q: What issue has recently caught your attention?

    A: Anything good. It's two syllables, "eco". Originally, I bought a bike for my own health and for the environment. It started out small, as the model of the eco-brand Beyond. I will continue to learn this behavior until it becomes a large-scale practice for eco. You can say that this is the biggest issue which has caught my attention these days.

    Q: Actresses, even actors become cosmetic models. Would you say that this is proof that you have joined the ranks of "beautiful male" celebrities?

    A: If you say so, I am flattered. At least once, as an actor, I would want to try and become a cosmetic model. Because it is the first time, I feel excited. I think I should pay more attention to skin care and work very hard.

    Q: Becoming the model of the beauty brand Beyond that seems very concerned about the environment, do you feel compelled to be conscious about the environment too? Do you feel a sense of pressure?

    A: It is true, you have to watch out for every action now. When using paper cups, you have to think twice. When there is no schedule, for short distances, I always ride the bike. I still lack so much. But as a model of an eco-brand, I am trying to fulfill my responsibility.

    Don't ask me to go to a faraway place on a bicycle (laughs), It's the connected question. Celebrities like Leonardo di Caprio or Brad Pitt who have an interest in things that are environmentally friendly or participating in projects that have an interest in the environment like actor Jang Dong Gun who narrated a documentary entitled "Earth". Actors who used their influence in a positive way, I envy them all.

    If given the opportunity, as an actor, I also want to participate in the environmental movement, like the actors I've mentioned. Because it would be rewarding for an actor to use his influence positively. However, it would not be easy to put the actions into practice. Actors are really respected.

    Q: I want to hear your thoughts about women who beautify themselves. And we are all curious about your ideal type!

    A: A woman who knows how to make herself beautiful, is of course welcome. I think to say that a woman who does not adorn herself is beautiful would be a lie. That's all because, basically, it's not impossible to do it, right? These days, people adhere to the methods of make-up or adorning themselves based on what they hear. Hahaha! My ideal type is British actress Kaya Scodelario and it has been revealed some time ago. My ideal type is a woman with a mysterious charm.

    Seolhyun-IU-Kim-Tae-Hee-Kim-Soo-Hyun-So-

    The mid-autumn festival, aka Chuseok (or as I call it the 'Korean Thanksgiving'), is a time to gather with family members to celebrate the bountiful harvest, get merry and plump with plentiful food, and...possibly introduce your significant other to your mom and dad?

    On September 23, mobile app 'Cashslide' announced the results to their Chuseok special survey which questioned 1,057 users in their 20's-40's on whom they would like to bring home to introduce to their parents during the holiday.

    Under the category of 'Daughter-in-law material I would want my father to meet,' singer IU came out on top with 9.3% of the total votes! The majority of IU's votes were from young men in their 20's while Kim Tae Hee came close in second with 8.4% of the votes. AOA's Seolhyun earned 6.1%, placing third, and Park Bo Young and Han Hyo Joo tied for fourth place respectively with 4.3% of the votes each.

    As for the 'Son-in-law material I would want my mom to meet,' Kim Soo Hyun placed first, sweeping up the votes of women in their 20's and 30's! Joo Won came in second with 4.9% of the votes, So Ji Sub placed third with 4.2%, 'Nation's MC' Yoo Jae Suk was fourth with 2.9% votes and Ha Jung Woo placed last with 2.9%.

  9. 15 of the Highest Paid K-Drama Actors and What They Earn
    by kokoberry 150904 (excerpt)

    After revealing the highest paid K-Drama actresses, a new report from news outlet Ilgan Sports has revealed the highest paid K-Drama actors in 2015. It appears as though the pay gap between actresses and actors is not as large as it has been in the past. However, male actors tend to enjoy greater popularity amongst female fans. In addition to their high earnings from K-Dramas, actors can cash in on their success through overseas fan meetings. Also, a successful K-drama will result in filming CFs which is quite profitable for actors.

    Without further ado let’s check out the list of Korea’s top actors’ earnings per episode compiled after consulting with drama production companies, broadcasting company producers, management staff members, and other specialists in the entertainment industry.

    Highest Earners

    Kim Soo Hyun and Hyun Bin are the highest paid actors having received 100 million KRW (approx. 83,900 USD) per episode this year. With a string of highly popular dramas like “The Moon That Embraces the Sun,” “My Love From the Star,” “Producer,” and more, Kim Soo Hyun is an extremely sought after actor. He received his highest earnings with “My Love From the Star.” However, he didn’t raise his rates for his following drama “Producer” due to his consideration for writer Park Ji Eun.

    Gong Hyo Jin, Kim Soo Hyun and IU gathered in one place for the first time after a long while.

    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

  11. Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Min Ho And Lee Jong Suk Are China's Most Liked Hallyu Stars

    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.

    There are some celebrities we can't stop loving no matter what roles they play! Certain actors can portray good, evil, funny, or even depressed characters, and we cannot wait to see more of them! Whether it be their acting talent or gorgeous looks, we continue to have major crushes on South Korean actors like the ones in this list.

    Kim Soo Hyun

    Kim is just plain lovable! Of course, his roles in Dream High and Producer just make you want to hug him, but I think his staring role as the handsome alien in My Love From Another really sent fangirls into orbit.

    This year, the number 1 baby's name for boys is Min Joon and for girls, it's Seo Yeon.

    According to the statistics released by the Supreme Court (in Korea), from January to June 2015, the most common name that topped the list in the birth registration of men and women is Min Joon for boys and Seo Yeon for girls respectively. Min Joon is the hero of the SBS drama "You Who came from the stars" and 2,032 baby boys were accounted with this name, while 1.632 baby girls were named Seo Yeon, the heroine of the movie "Architecture 101" (the younger role played by Suzy).

    In the past, naming names was done in accordance with the law. In recent years, people wanting to associate with the names of celebrities or characters in movies and dramas have increased significantly. This is the reason why these names came out in the "Top Ten names that emerged this year"

    150808

    South Korean actor Kim Soo Hyun, who is enjoying tremendous popularity not only in Asian countries but also worldwide, held his "2015 Fan meeting in Japan" at the Tokyo Mielparque Hall yesterday, Aug. 7 (Friday). Kim Soo Hyun made his debut as an actor in the drama "Kimchi Cheese Smile" and appeared in many projects such as the dramas, "Dream High", "Moon Embracing the Sun", "You who came from the Stars" and in the movies "The Thieves" and "Secretly Greatly", gaining huge popularity by portraying a variety of roles.

The MC Han Suk-Joon asked him "Do you know? When you search for the term 'the guy who was Refused a shake hands, your name pops up on search engines. Have you seen the video?"

    Kim Soo-hyun replied by saying "I saw it. But it was more like I missed the timing in regards to the handshake rather than being refusing it. At least, according to my interpreting of the events". Han Suk-Joon countered by saying "you seemed to be trying shake every fan's hands". "What else can I do but shake their hands?", the actor replied.
    The title of the program "Stars from Korea" is a behind the scenes, celebrity gossip entertainment program.
