couple cuteness




Kill me, these two are just too lovable and visually gorgeous together. Son Ye Jin uploaded on Instagram a pic of she and So Ji Sub just before greeted fans at Yeongdeungpo CGV in Seoul. The clip of their appearance is below and I was so distracted by the hunkiness of So Ji Sub. His profile is to-die-for. Those cheekbones and those eyes… and he looks hot in the cap. I was tickled that while Son Ye Jin was seriously addressing the audience, he was all hyper and peering curiously into the audience. That part when he leaned over to Son Ye Jin and posed while she was still talking was adorable. So Ji Sub isn’t that tall either but he is very broad and quite solidly built. The screams from the female moviegoers when he removed and re-adjusted his cap was hilarious, so was Son Ye Jin’s amused expression. He and Son Ye Jin look fab together.

So Ji-sub applauded for charity, tax report


So Ji-sub, left, and Son Ye-jin in "Be With You." / Korea Times file


By Ko Dong-hwan The Korea Times


The South Korean tax authority recognized actor So Ji-sub Thursday for faithfully paying his taxes and for his charity work.


The National Tax Service awarded So, among 24 winners, for their philanthropic deeds. While the winners are from diverse industries like manufacturing, wholesale and retail sales, welfare works and services, the actor is the only celebrity.


The authority praised So for using his money from fan meetings to support girls from low-income single-parent families, and children who need psychological treatment because of abuse.


In June 2017, So donated 100 million won ($94,000) to South Korea's non-governmental charity group Good Neighbors. The money was part of the profits from his Asia fan meeting tour that celebrated 20th years since his debut. The donated money was used to provide sanitary items and mentoring sessions for teenage girls. 


So did not attend the award event at the National Tax Service Seoul Regional Office in Jongno-gu. His agency, 51k, said he was in Taiwan to promote his latest romance film "Be With You." 


The agency delivered the star's comments that he "only did what every South Korean citizen is supposed to do" and that good-hearted actions would "brighten the country's future."


Since 2011, the tax authority has held the annual event to uphold as role models people who fulfilled their tax duties and contributed to regional economies by working with charity groups. 


The authority said that this year, for the first time, it paid attention to corporate social responsibility values and selected four winners from companies involved.


Benefits for the winners include a separate custom screening at airports for faster boarding, exemption from providing security for unpaid taxes and a cheaper interest rate for loans.

So Ji Sub Shares His Thoughts On The “Me Too” Movement


Actor So Ji Sub has commented on the “Me Too” movement that has recently been taking the Korean entertainment industry by storm.

In a recent interview with media outlet No Cut News, So Ji Sub talked about his acting career and his hopes for the future. The actor was reportedly somewhat reserved throughout the interview, even responding to some questions by simply confessing that he was at a loss for words. However, when asked about the “Me Too” movement, So Ji Sub didn’t hesitate to make his own thoughts known.

“I support the people who have bravely made their voices heard,” the actor remarked. “I think that everyone needs to make an effort to change things and create a better world. I don’t want their courageous actions to have been in vain.”

He also commented, “I think being a good person and being a good actor happen in the same context. I’m not sure yet what it means to be a good person, but I want to become the kind of person who exudes a positive vibe and who makes people feel happy even through just a passing encounter.”

When asked about his goals for 2018, So Ji Sub replied, “The success of [my new] movie is up to fate. I hope that I successfully wrap up the drama that I’m currently scheduled to film and that I end the year on a good note.”

So Ji Sub recently starred in the film “Be With You” and will be appearing in the upcoming tvN drama “Terius Behind Me” (literal title) later this year.

So Ji-sub wants to be a good man than a good actor

So Ji-sub wants to be a good man than a good actor

When So Ji-sub was approached to take on the leading role for Be With You, the actor first turned it down due to pressure of playing a dad.

“I couldn’t imagine myself as a father, so I didn’t think I would be able to do it. If I started shooting, feeling like that, I would hinder the production,” he said in a group interview on Friday. “But I just couldn’t pass it up. I wanted to work in a film that makes me feel good.”

In the movie, he plays the role of a young father lamenting the death of his wife, only to have her return to him and his son. But the film glosses over the supernatural aspect and focuses on the human interaction within the family.

“I loved the warm and heartfelt feeling (of the film). The original (Japanese) version is loved by a lot of people, but I loved the part where the director made changes.” 

Despite his initial reluctance, he said he came to sympathize with the character who has a lot in common with him, such as being a competitive swimmer, as So was in his youth.

“I’m a lot like Woo-jin. I have trouble approaching someone I want to date, and I end up losing her,” So said.

He added that he was impressed the most about his co-star Son Ye-jin’s professionalism.

“Most actors just finish acting when the director approves, but Son keeps continuing until she is satisfied,” he said.

Son said he wants to play a role that is fun to look at, and has a lot of characteristics. He indicated that he wants to keep evolving, both as a person and as an actor.

“I don’t know if I’m necessary a good actor, but I do want to be a good person. When I find out how to become a good actor, I think that’s the day when I quit acting,” he said.

So begin his acting career in 1996 on TV, and has risen to stardom through works like TV drama “I’m Sorry, I Love You,” and movie Rough Cut

Snail-paced new reality show documents stars' journey for happiness


By Woo Jae-yeon


SEOUL, April 4 (Yonhap) -- There is no sparks-flying romance, hand-wringing suspense, adrenaline-pumping action or breathtaking landscapes. Even the producer, Na Young-seok, warned that TV viewers might fall asleep while watching his new reality show.


But a media event Wednesday for tvN's "Little House in the Forest" was filled with anticipation of a yet another hit show from the highly successful producer.


The new weekly program -- like his popular "Youn's Kitchen" series -- is created on the premise that TV viewers take great comfort by watching celebrities living slow-paced, peaceful lives, either in exotic locations or in the wild, a type of laid-back, vacation-like lifestyle that is only temporarily available for busy Koreans.

Two cast members -- actors So Ji-sub and Park Shin-hye -- will get to lead a lone, minimal life in a tucked-away little house in the forest on the resort island Jeju. There, they are required to fill the day by completing missions and doing the very basics to sustain a life, such as cooking, making fire and chopping firewood.


Even though the idea of disconnecting with the outside world -- even for one day -- was very appealing to most of the production crew, producer Na said his team wasn't sure if the concept of the show would pique the interest of a large audience.


He said the program wouldn't have been possible without actress Park Shin-hye's enthusiastic response to the idea.


"We were very encouraged by her phone call where she said she wanted to join. When a cast showed such a response, we concluded that viewers would likely feel the same way," he said.

"Honestly, I am not leading a minimalist life. While shooting the program, however, I learned, to some degree, what I needed and what I could live without," the actress said.


"I used to think I was happy by doing something, like traveling or meeting friends ... Since I've started the program, I felt happy when I picked up pine cones more than I had expected, when I made fire easily, when the weather was good and when I watched birds that I had never seen before flying up over the house."


Throughout the press event, the producer emphasized that the show wasn't meant to record great viewership ratings.


"As 'Youn's Kitchen 2' was successful, the network allowed us a chance this once to do whatever we wanted to make," he said half-jokingly. "I've already told the two cast members that the show might fall flat."


Another cast member, So Ji-sub, who the producer teased was leading a simple life "like a Buddhist monk" in real life, said happiness would follow when one lives every moment to the fullest.


"I am not sure yet whether I am happy while filming the show. I would only answer that later when I look back at these moments I will see if they are happy memories or not," he said.


By wrapping up the event, the producer recommended the show -- once again -- to those who need to down a cold beer to let off some steam before falling sound asleep.


The program will premiere at 9:50 p.m. on Friday.

Hi killarhee, thanks for sharing this video of Little House Forest show. I heard that he had rejected casting offers for the show multiple times. IDK what made him changed his mind to appear in this variety show. Well, I guess this show fits him somehow since SJS is also a very simple person. He doesn't talk much about his life, his personal life at that to the point of him being "mysterious." The show looks interesting. The first episode will air tomorrow, on April 6 at 9:50 p.m. KST.  I'm looking forward to see his different life here. Although, this isn't a drama but I'm waiting to see SJS on the screen again.  I'm sure So Ji Sub will do well as always. :lol:
