ah that girl in dongguk univ with insung oppa rite??

old article...


Internet search of "Jo In Sung's girlfriend" topped the internet search. The truth of the mysterious girl is finally unveiled.

She is Park Min Young. She is a student of Dongkuk University, in the third year of Theatrical Arts. Photographs of her and Jo In Sung together on the campus were splashed across on internet cafes and blog sites which caused the misunderstanding of "Jo In Sung's girlfriend".

Park Min Young expressed that "much misunderstanding was received during the time when Jo In Sung senior and I went to school together frequently. Friends whom are not in contact normally would also call to ask about this matter. There also threats coming from homepage and mails. However I am not upset as there is nothing more to our relationship except a junior-senior relationship".

Park Min John's entertainment world debut story is also unique . The management company was searching for a mini-homepage last year and came to look at Park Min Young's homepage by chance. They found her to be a charming person as well and decided to offer her casting.

I heard about that too. If I'm correct, She already comfirmed that she was only close friends with him. That news is still on-going around internet though. She's quiet lucky.

Some pictures from her cyworld. Adorable. :]



Photoshoot with Lee Jun Ki.

Have anyone watched today's High Kick episode?

She's been gone for awhile and now she has came back. <3 I can't wait to see her more in High Kick now. Kind of random but - I've been really looking out in her style in High Kick. She has some really great sense in style. o_o

Great news, Min Young will be featuring in the new upcoming drama called "I am Sam". The article is up in sidus main homepage. I'm so excited. ^^

And, New photoshoots from T Magazine! She looks gorgeous.






I should be discussing this in the High Kick thread, But I might as well say it here too - Today's High Kick episode was sad and had alot of action to it. This drama is more of a drama-action than a sitcom now, lol.


There are pictures of Min Young from her Lotte DFS photoshoots in her cyworld and yahoo. But I'll post them tomorrow, If I can. I'm so tired.

Now, Park Min Young's company is responding in saying: "The storyline is left for a dissappearence but not a full absence. There is a full chance that Park Min Young will be on again" which has been recently noted.

O MG. I'm hoping that Yoomi will appear in the last episode of High Kick and meet Minho again. I'm kind of tired of being happy and sad about Yoomi disappearance and come-backs. I was very upset Minho lost her again, too. I'm always like, "Poor Minho...". And High Kick is a little boring without Kang Yoomi's randomness. ;]

However, Kang Yoo Mi's character played by Park Min Young has been casted as a female lead in a KBS Mini Series. Starting in August the KBS Monday-Tuesday Drama "I am Sam", a character named Yoo Eun Byul, as she is a strong leader "uljjang" (best face) who is the only daughter.

August? Ahh, That's too far. T_T I'm pretty excited to see her new character in her new drama too! I'm glad she'll have the main lead role. I mean, If she was the second main again, She'll come out mean and cruel as the usual drama character's, right? It doesn't matter though. xD Yoo Eun Byul is pretty, suitable name for Minyoung. I can't wait.

Thanks for the article, jina_bing_bang.
