Hani’s Manager Warns Kangnam Not to Ask for Her Number during Photoshoot

Soompi - Sat, 01/24/2015 - 08:10

Pictorials of the two rising stars, Kangnam and Hani, were revealed through the February issue of the fashion magazine @star1.

Under the theme “Popular couple,” the two were said to have skillfully proceeded throughout the photo shoot unlike any other newly debuted idol, catching the attention of the entire staff.

This pictorial, however, became more of an issue after Kangnam exposed the comical backstory in JTBC‘s “Inside Story Salon.”

Under the topic “Taboos,” he revealed, “I recently went through a photo shoot with EXID’s Hani. An hour before the photo shoot, her manager personally called me.”

“The manager called saying, ‘Don’t ask for her number. I’m kidding. But don’t act like you’re her boyfriend. Just act like the two of you are good friends. I’m just kidding.’ I was so mad. I’ve never asked for someone’s phone number before,” Kangnam said.

Soompi - Sat, 01/24/2015 - 07:50

Lovelyz talked about their ideal Valentine’s Day.

On January 23, fashion magazine CéCi released a pictorial featuring seven-member girl group Lovelyz who made a splash with their debut last year. The concept of the photo shoot was “Loveable seven girls and their romantic Valentine’s Day.”

Lovelyz showed off their sweet and doll-like charms, changing out of the school uniforms they usually don on stage into pastel spring-ready outfits. In the cuts, the girls hold ice cream and candy and strike cute poses for the camera.

In keeping with the theme of the photo shoot, the girls shared about their ideal Valentine’s Day in the corresponding interview.

Kei shared, “When I have a boyfriend, I want to do something where we do it together. I don’t like chocolate, so I would want to make cakes or something with my boyfriend, have an enjoyable time like that.”

Yein said, “There are a lot of chocolate cafes where you can try a variety of different chocolates. On Valentine’s Day, at least for that one day, I want to go to a chocolate cafe with my boyfriend and eat all I want without worrying about gaining weight.”

Meanwhile, you can catch the full Lovelyz pictorial in CéCi’s February issue.

Hong Sisters (“Master’s Sun,” “My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho”) Working on New Drama

Soompi - Sat, 01/24/2015 - 07:03

The Hong Sisters (Hong Mi Ran and Hong Jung Eun), the drama screenwriting team behind “Master’s Sun,” “Greatest Love,” “Big,” “My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho,” and “You’re Beautiful,” are coming back with a new drama.

A source from MBC commented, “There is no concrete synopsis yet. Who gets casted for a Hong Sisters’ project is a hot issue between actors and agencies.”

This upcoming drama will be the Hong Sisters’ first MBC drama in four years. Their last project with MBC, “Greatest Love,” was a huge hit, so there is high anticipation for this one, especially as they will be reuniting with the director of “Greatest Love,” Park Hong Kyun.

Have You Met Kim Seul Gi?

Soompi - Sat, 01/24/2015 - 06:28

Stand back, ladies and gents, this star’s making some moves.

Let me introduce you to Kim Seul Gi.

You may have seen her as a gloriously sleep deprived editor on “The Flower Boy Next Door”, a jilted lover on “The Discovery Of Romance”, or a fantastically dry-humored vlogger on “Surplus Princess“. All great supporting roles for the burgeoning comedic actress, as she played strong female characters with distinct voices that don’t fit into a cookie cutter mold. But what’s remarkable is her presence onscreen: when she appears, I know that fun is about to be had. I like smart, well-defined female characters, and I love funny women: Kim Seul Gi is deliciously entertaining.

Maybe you’ve seen her earlier work on the show that pushes boundaries in the modern zeitgeist south of the 38th parallel, “SNL Korea“.

The Busan native cut her teeth on the iconic comedy show, alongside cast members Jung Myung OkShin Dong Yup, Go Kyung Pyo, and Kim Min Kyo. She portrayed a variety of characters, including the wife of a self-gratifying husband (played by SNL Korea cast member Jay Park) in digital short “Because I’m A Man”. She previously attended Seoul Institute of the Arts and has appeared onstage in both musical and theater productions. 

Admittedly, I can’t help but wish she had stayed on in the cast; it feels like the show is missing a regular dose of Kim Seul Gi. All for the best, though, as the actress is focusing on her television drama and film roles. Not only has she appeared in recent features Ode To My Father and Miss Granny, but the rising thesp has a couple of soundtrack singles (OSTs) to her credit to boot (“I Woke Up Because Of You“, “Rude Girl“).

You can catch a glimpse of the young star as Heo Seok Hee, a psychiatric patient on the current drama “Kill Me, Heal Me” (starring Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, and Park Seo Joon. Although more of a guest star role compared to her work on “Surplus Princess” and “The Discovery Of Romance”, Kim Seul Gi adds an unexpectedly awesome punch to the story: her character is a compulsive liar addicted to clubbing.

I am looking forward to seeing her take on more roles, the heftier and the riskier, the better. Who else loves funny women?
