“Superman Returns” Triplet Min Gook Gets Traumatized by His Mermaid Transformation

Soompi - Mon, 05/25/2015 - 07:55

Actor Song Il Gook’s middle triplet, Min Gook, gave viewers a good laugh with his reaction to the sight of himself dressed as a mermaid.

On the May 24 broadcast of KBS’ variety show “Superman Returns,” the triplets’ dad, Song Il Gook, took his three sons to a studio where they could dress up and have their photos taken.

In order to play out the story of “The Little Mermaid,” the three boys began their transformation into the characters of the prince, the mermaid, and the sea witch.

Before getting changed, Min Gook expressed that he wanted to take on the role of the mermaid character. However, as Song Il Gook started to dress him in the mermaid outfit, piece by piece, Min Gook was in for a surprise.

After seeing himself wearing the tight-fitting, sequined tail, Min Gook burst into tears and cried out, “Min Gook doesn’t want to be the mermaid. Take off these clothes. I don’t want to transform into anything,” and ultimately fell to the floor in tears.

As a result, the roles were switched and the youngest triplet, Man Se, made the transformation into ‘Man Se Mermaid.’

On the May 24 episode of “Section TV,” actress Lee Yeon Hee sits down to chat about her life and the journey that has led to her current role in the MBC drama “Hwajung.”

When asked, Lee Yeon Hee says she’s the third daughter in her family, so the interviewer asks her what her older sisters look like.

“They’re also on the pretty side,” says Lee Yeon Hee, and the show reveals some photos of her and her sisters.

She is then asked which of the three she’d say is the prettiest, if she were to choose objectively.

Lee Yeon Hee is so embarrassed she can’t even look at the camera or the interviewer as she laughs and admits it might be her, because of her good genes.

It’s then revealed that Lee Yeon Hee originally auditioned for her agency SM Entertainment when she was in her first year of middle school because her older sister suggested it, and she ended up getting first place.

“You must be so grateful!” says the interviewer.

“But didn’t it happen because I did a good job?” says Lee Yeon Hee, bursting out laughing at her own frankness.

Hwang Jung Eum Talks about Her Top 3 Acting Specialties on “Entertainment Weekly”

Soompi - Mon, 05/25/2015 - 04:19

On the May 23 episode of “Entertainment Weekly,” actress Hwang Jung Eum sits down with a reporter for a candid interview and talks about the show’s list of her top three acting fortes.

Hwang Jung Eum debuted as a member of the girl group Sugar in 2002, but she says she’s glad to hear that some people only know her as an actress because she’s worked so hard at it. She most recently starred in the drama “Kill Me, Heal Me.”

First off, the interviewer proclaims her the “Queen of Tears” because of her epic crying scenes, which Hwang Jung Eum says is great. But then when asked if it’s okay if they show some clips of her crying, she laughs and says, “But I look like a bit of a monster when I cry…”

After they show a few clips, she tells the story of how one time a director told her that they should do a second take of a crying scene because of the way she looked. But Hwang Jung Eum insisted that they keep it because she didn’t mind what she looked like as long as the emotion was there.

“Do you think you look like a monster when you watch it now?” asks the interviewer.

“I don’t like looking at my face,” she admits, “but I really like the emotion there.”

Her second specialty is hitting people! She definitely has a knack for handing out some convincing blows. “Maybe it’s because I got hit a lot at school?” she jokes.

The program also highlights her gift for acting out birthing scenes. Hwang Jung Eum says that she watched a documentary about childbirth only 10 minutes before she shot one of the scenes included in the compilation. “I was so moved!” she says. “Watching that documentary really brought everything home for me.”

You can check out the clip compilation in the interview below!

Choi Siwon Wants to Wear His “Fortune Cookie” Uniform Again for Movie Promotions

Soompi - Mon, 05/25/2015 - 03:51

On the May 24 broadcast of MBC’s “Section TV,” Choi Siwon talks about his (in)famous “fortune cookie,” a photo of which went viral when he shared it while competing in the sixth man competition on “Infinity Challenge.”

To a question about whether it’s true that strangers now just laugh at him as soon as they see him, Choi Siwon nods and says, “Yes, yes.”

He also addresses speculation that he wore the leggings inside out to achieve the fortune cookie effect, “I guess there wasn’t a big production budget (Laughs). It’s a uniform I wore for a movie. The president of a bicycle shop asked me, ‘Which brand did they even get this from? Why did they put that on you?’”

Choi Siwon continues, “The movie is set to premiere in August, and I’m thinking about wearing that outfit during promotions in Korea. I think it would be really fun if I greet fans after the movie in that uniform.”

We totally agree!

Triplets Dae Han, Min Gook, and Man Se have graduated from the kids’ table!

On the May 24 episode of KBS2’s “Superman Returns,” the triplets are allowed to sit at the grown-up table and eat with their father, Song Il Gook. In an attempt to teach his kids how to eat like adults, Song Il Kook sits them down at the table and teaches them some table manners.

“You can’t eat first,” he says to Dae Han, Min Gook, and Man Se as they wait to eat their jajangmyeon (black bean sauce noodles). “You have to wait for the adult to eat first before you can begin,” he explains. The triplets, meanwhile, make their father proud by sitting quietly, obediently waiting until he has finished before digging in.

Beenzino and Jung Yonghwa’s Doppelgangers Turn Heads on “1 Night 2 Days”

Soompi - Mon, 05/25/2015 - 01:11

On the May 24 broadcast of KBS 2TV variety show “1 Night 2 Days,” the cast members choose a placard with the name of their future roommate at Seoul National University and seek them out.

Viewers are forced to do a double take, however, when Kim Joon Ho and Cha Tae Hyun meet their roomies.

Kim Joon Ho’s roommate Kim Ji Hoon is a physical education major at Seoul National University whose resemblance to rapper Beenzino is uncanny. Everything from his facial features, height, and athletic build make him almost indistinguishable from the rapper.

Cha Tae Hyun’s roommate, architecture major No Woo Hyuk, also bears a notable resemblance to a celebrity heartthrob, Jung Yonghwa of CNBLUE.

Meanwhile, “1 Night 2 Days” is currently doing a university special where the cast members transform into Seoul National University students.
