At a press conference in Shanghai for the Chinese adaptation of the Korean popular drama All About Eve, Jang Hyuk had to excuse himself several times to run to the bathroom. He did manage to come back for enough time to praise co-star Cheryl Yang, who is also leaving her home country of Taiwan to film the remake. Zhu Dan, inheriting Park Chae Rim‘s role in the original, gushed that she’ll have a hard time breathing during their kissing scenes. These guys need to chill out!
Dong Yi and Birth of the Rich are head-to-head in the ratings war, but it looks like Birth has gained the confidence of execs who have extended the series 4 episodes for a total of 20. That pushes the premier of Lee Soo Kyung‘s romantic comedy My Country Calls back to May 10th.
And speaking of Country, it’s just been announced that Horan from the experimental genre-fusing group Clazziquai will make her acting debut in the drama, playing an intelligence agent who is also the “perfect woman,” impeccable in appearance and succeeding at everything she tries. Sounds like the perfect match for A Man Called God…
There was a kinda-not-really Coffee Prince reunion at a recent Louis Vuitton gala at which both Yoon Eun Hae and Gong Yoo dropped in. YEH appears to have enjoyed an over-decorated cotton candy-flavored cocktail.
In Japan-Kdrama outreach news, Park Shi Hoo has just opened his official Japanese website, and IRIS is getting the star treatment for its broadcast in Japan. Kuroki Meisa is dubbing Kim Tae Hee‘s character, and Death Note star Fujiwara Tatsuya is taking over for Lee Byung Hun.
Finally, another late Jang Hyuk story–he reportedly performed a lot better than at his Eve press conference when he appeared on daytime talk show Seung Seung Jang Gu, doing his now-standard talk show circuit martial arts demonstration and abs flash!
