I've always had this little crush on LJJ since "Il Mare" that never went away. The way he carries himself in this quietly-confident-but-never-cocky way, his mysterious aura and onscreen charisma ...I like.^^ And ooh when he danced in "Over the Rainbow" ala Gene Kelly in "Singin' in the Rain", I went nuts. :wacko: Come to think of it, I've seen most of the stuff in his filmography--any movie with him in it, then I'm (at the least) marginally interested to watch it. So yeah, many K-crushes later, I guess my LJJ-lurve is here to stay.

CF goodies galore!

And THAT right there was my favorite scene in "Typhoon." :phew: The movie was a machismo-drenched, logic-defying yawn-fest and LJJ was totally wasted in it. I hope the next project he chooses will utilize his talents much MUCH better.

LJJ & LMS totally burned the screen in An Affair. :sweatingbullets:

Il Mare got a Hollywood makeover but each time I saw the trailer, I'd always remember the Korean hero instead. :blush:

Wishing this awesome actor a better acting offer in the future, one that doesn't restrict him in any way... LJJ deserves more...

Since everyone is interested in this drama, I'll post out some more information that I dug out for With S2's news thread. :P


MBC is going to produce a new 60 eps drama 'Air City' to celebrate the 5th anniversary of In-cheon Airport. MBC will be using 7 writers to script this new drama and it'll be shown in parts as well. Part 1 is said to be 20eps.

Actress Go Soo Young has expressed her interest to be in this drama. She'll be acting in Part 1 of the drama that will be shown in November. This will be Korea's first action drama with In-cheon Airport as the background.

^Hi yeohweping, welcome & thanks so much for sharing the news with us here. Really appreciate it. :)

Just wondering though... if you're more familiar with the upcoming series. It's said to be 60 episodes long with several parts to it with the Part 1 comprising of 20 episodes. Does that mean that LJJ will (only) be acting in Part 1, scheduled to start early Dec alongside KSY? And will there be other (leading) actors coming in for the next part? Or are they in different scenes altogether?

Perhaps we should wait for the real & full drama report, huh? :blush:

Something interesting to share, while the cover centers on Bi (Rain)... look at the top right inset. Isn't that our LJJ from Typhoon? :)

The Times Exclusive Hails Korean Culture

Thursday, October 19, 2006 12:42:08

The British daily The Times has printed a twelve-page exclusive on Korean culture describing how the country has blossomed culturally after shedding its authoritarian past through democratic reforms.

Noting how South Korean music and cinema has influenced all of Asia and that Korean films have triggered explosive interest in Britain, The Times predicted that Korean pop music would follow suit.

The paper also profiled the singer Rain, who was named one of the most influential people in the world by the Time magazine, noting how he overcame poverty and prejudice to become an international star.

The report also said that Korea's zeal for English education is contributing to bilateral ties and that a Korean cultural institute opening in London this year will serve as a base for promoting Korean culture to Europe and Africa.

2 Top Actors Become Fashion CEOs

By Seo Dong-shin

Staff Reporter


Two 30-something popular actors have become CEOs in the fashion business world, preparing to launch a men's suits brand early next year.

Actors Lee Jung-jae and Jung Woo-sung, both 33, established clothing company FAB Inc. earlier this month. They own 40 percent of the company.

Their first project is to re-launch a Japanese men's wear brand "Durban" in February, according to FAB. FAB is affiliated with Basic House, a Korean total clothing brand.

Durban withdrew from the Korean market a year ago. This time, the brand will be upgraded based on the designs and plans thought out by the actor-CEOs, Yonhap News Agency quoted FAB officials as saying.

"Unlike many clothing brands that just 'borrow' celebrities' names, FAB is a company where Jung and Lee actually participate in the management," an FAB official said.

Jung and Lee, both known for their fashionable styles as well as clean-cut facial features and physique, reportedly have been interested in the fashion industry for a long time. The two are close friends since acting together in the 1998 film "Taeyangeun obtta’’ (There Is No Sun).

Lee starred in many films including the blockbuster "Typhoon" last year. Jung's latest film is "Daisy" released early this year.

Hallyu Heroine Returns With New Drama

By Chung Ah-young

Staff Reporter


Actress Choi Ji-woo, popular in Japan where she is affectionately called "Ji-woo Hime," (Princess Ji-woo), is coming back to her Korean fans.

She will perform in the MBC drama, "Air City" that will air in May and June, breaking a three-year hiatus.

Her last performance on television was in the SBS drama, "Stairway to Heaven" three years ago, in which she starred with actor Kwon Sang-woo.

She will play a heroine, "Han Do-kyong," an aspiring executive at an airport corporation who speaks five foreign languages. The heroine suffers a trauma involving her family.

"We've decided that Choi is appropriate for the role," said HB Entertainment, which is involved in the production.

The story revolves around various incidents at the airport such as drug smuggling and passport counterfeiting.

Actor Lee Jung-jae is a strong candidate to be Choi's counterpart, according to HB Entertainment. Shooting will begin early this year and will be broadcast on weekends on MBC in May and June.

Choi has a large fanbase in Southeast Asia including Japan because she co-starred with actor Bae Yong-joon, better known as "Yonsama" to Japanese fans, in "Winter Sonata" in 2002, which was a smash hit in Asian countries.

Choi also starred in "Everybody Has Secrets," acting with Lee Byung-hun. Her roles in "Beautiful Days" (2001), "Winter Sonata" (2002) and "Stairway to Heaven" (2003) boosted her popularity throughout Asia.
