Actress Kim Sungryung was asked on SBS’s “One Night of TV Entertainment” which male actor was closest to her ideal type of man.

She answered that she would like to date Lee Minho, but marry Hyun Bin. She also revealed a funny episode she had with Hyun Bin, where she jokingly attempted the “foam kiss” scene from the drama “Secret Garden”.

Instead of drinking cuppaccino and getting the foam on her upper lip, she tried it with beer. Seeing Kim Sungryung with beer foam on her upper lip, Hyun Bin had apparently laughed a lot.

Film director Kim Jho Kwang-soo will marry his partner in September, his movie production firm Rainbow Factory said yesterday.

Kim will hold a press conference tomorrow along with his boyfriend, who is 19 years younger, to make the announcement official. Kim’s parents are said to have blessed the arrangement.

Rainbow Factory specializes in distributing LGBT films, and the boyfriend also works in the film industry.

Kim also shared his plans to build a center to support sexual minorities. He expects the center to become a Mecca for human rights activities defending the rights of sexual minorities and hopes it will play a fundamental role in changing societal attitudes about LGBT individuals in Korea.

He said gift money received at the wedding will be used to support the new center.

As Korea doesn’t allow same-sex marriage by law, some netizens have objected to the arrangement. However, others have voiced their support for the couple online.

Kim Yu Na Wins Gold At World Figure Skating Championships

Kim Yu-na completed her return as Queen of the Ice with her second World Figure Skating Championship yesterday, Korean time, after putting up a near flawless performance that left defending champion Carolina Kostner a distant second more than 20 points behind.

The 22-year-old Korean received 148.34 in free skate, the highest among 24 finalists at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario, for a combined score of 218.31. Kim also won Friday’s short program with a score of 69.97.

“I expected a good score as I did well, but I didn’t expect it to be as high as this,” Kim said after winning the world title, her first since the 2009 event. “I had done my best in preparing for the free skate.”

Kostner of Italy, who finished second in the short program at 66.86, settled for 131.03 in the free skate for a total score of 197.89. Mao Asada was second in the free skate with a score of 134.37, rebounding from a sixth-place finish in the short program to finish third with a combined score of 196.47.

It was Kim’s second-highest point total and the second-highest ever in women’s figure skating. Kim holds the world’s highest mark, 228.56, which she set at the Vancouver Olympics. She earned 150.06 points in the free skate in Vancouver.

Only four other times did she receive more than 200 points, two of them since her return from a 20-month break, raising hopes that she can defend her Olympic title in Sochi, Russia, next year.

Kim sat out competitions at home and abroad since her runner-up finish at the 2011 worlds in Moscow, triggering the speculation of her imminent retirement.

She broke her silence last July, saying the Sochi Games would be her final competition.

The victory in Canada is a big confidence boost ahead of the Sochi Olympics, she said.

Since her return, she said, she tried not to not think so much about people’s expectations during training and competitions. “I felt comfortable during practices,” Kim said.

“And the competitions also had good results, so I’ve got some a bit of motivation [to defend the Olympic title],” she said. “I will keep my heart light ,but will give my best in preparation.”

Kim entered the worlds as one of the favorites after winning the NRW Trophy in Dortmund, Germany, with a then season high score of 201.61 in December. Although it was a second-tier event, she competed to get the minimum points needed qualify for the worlds. She continued to impress, winning the Korean national championship in January with a score of 210.77.

Kim said her performance at the national championships in particular helped her to regain confidence.

“I had rarely done a clean performance at the senior stage,” Kim said yesterday. “Everybody feels burdened by the free skate due in part to the physical requirement. The result this time, I think, will be a great help for me.”

If she wins a gold medal in Sochi, she would become only the third figure skater to successfully defend the ladies’ Olympic title. Sonja Henie of Norway won the three straight Olympics starting in 1928. Katarina Witt of East Germany won the Olympics twice in 1984 and 1988.

At Budweiser Gardens, the audience was on its feet long before her final spin, and cheers erupted when her scores were posted.

No female skater has had a run quite like Kim from 2009 through the Vancouver Olympics. She won all but one competition, usually in breathtaking fashion. While most Olympic champions make a quick exit, Kim stuck around, finishing second at the next two world championships. But she stepped away following the 2011 competition.

Figure skating is meant to be a blend of art and athleticism, and Kim didn’t just feel her music from “Les Miserables,” she was part of it.

With each soft tilt of her head, she brought back memories of the little girl who began skating for the pure love of it, before medals or titles or the expectations of an entire country and sport ever entered her mind.

At 25 and with more expressiveness than most actresses, Kostner is one of the few skaters who can do “Bolero” justice.

Fixing the judges with flirty looks, extending her fingers oh so sharply and enticing the audience with a come-hither sway of her hips before beginning her footwork, she sent the arena temperature climbing.

Even a popped triple loop and a nose bleed that forced her to wipe away blood during a spin couldn’t spoil the sultry performance.

“It was not easy because the blood was just running out of my nose through the whole program,” she said. “It’s an important lesson that I just had to learn here and accept.”

The only thing to spoil the mood came in the final seconds, when she took a hard fall on a triple salchow.

“For me, coming here, I didn’t really know what to expect,” said Kostner, who skipped the Grand Prix season. “Now I can go home with a medal. It’s just such a great feeling. Last year, I reached one of my biggest dreams. I think before I had already given up. So this year I just felt I was able to live a part of it. I’m just so honored to be here.”

Korea’s prominent openly-gay celebrity Hong Seok-cheon revealed that his relationship with current boyfriend was on the rocks. On an episode of JTBC’s “Park Kyeong-rim‘s Oh! Happy Day” to be aired on April 25, Hong said he regretted having talked about his boyfriend publicly.

 

“After his identity was revealed, he feels as if he is being watched. It’s gotten to a point where I’m wondering whether I should let him go”, said Hong of his twenty-something boyfriend. “Regardless, even if I were to break up with him, he will be the center of attention again, so it’s a dilemma”.

 

Hong also took the opportunity to say that Korean society was still a lot behind when it came to accepting homosexuality.

Park Jung-min from the defunct boy band SS501 has asked a court to nullify the exclusive representation agreement he signed with his agency.
The star alleges that CNR Media is not paying him as agreed, but the contract he signed prevents him from working elsewhere.
The agency has only paid Park 150 million won ($132,450), the star said, and he seeks further compensation from the company, though he didn’t specify how much he wants in the court filing.
Since the days of SS501, Park has been active as an actor in Taiwan and Japan. Last year, Park headed concerts in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, over Christmas. But unless his exclusive contract is nullified, he cannot officially sign with another agency.
After five years together, the five members of SS501 decided to separate and pursue individual careers as musicians and actors.
Last year, Park released two EP albums: a dance album by the name of “Not Alone” in January and an eponymous EP in April.

South Korean actress Park Si Yeon will be making her first appearance in a nude scene for the upcoming movie “The Scent”.
At the film’s premiere in Seoul on April 3, Park opened up at the press conference to reveal she felt pressurized shooting the nude scene, reported Korean media.
“When I first got the script, there was no sex scene. I did not know I had to go naked in front of camera until we started filming,” said Park.
The actress added it was tough for her as she had never done such a scene before.
It was only after several heated discussions with the director, Kim Hyung Joon, and co-star Park Hee Soon, that Park Si Yeon agreed to go ahead with the filming.
In the suspense thriller, Park Si Yeon plays the role of an attractive widow who holds vital information about her husband’s murder case while Park Hee Soon plays a detective who accidentally gets involved in the same case.
A sexual attraction between the two characters slowly developed as they clashed repeatedly to solve the murder case.
Director Kim Hyung Joon explained that the bed scene between the two leads was essential to bring out this sexual attraction.
“The main concept of this movie is femme fatale and I had Sharon Stone’s ‘Basic Instinct’ in mind when I was directing this film,” said Kim.
“Park Si Yeon’s physical temptation was necessary to portray that fatal attraction,” he added.

Topic: Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young

According to Korea JoongAng Daily, Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young have broken up after six months of dating.

When Lee and Park arrived at separate award ceremonies KBS and SBS drama awards, the media began to speculate about their relationship.

Lee’s talent agency King Kong Entertainment confirmed the reports of the break-up and said that the two remain good friends.

The couple met on the set of the drama “City Hunter” and began dating while trying to keep their relationship out of the media but the paparazzi caught the couple out on a date and snapped a picture.

The six month relationship is over due to a busy career schedule.

Lee is working on the KBS drama “Glory Jaein” while seeking future projects. Also, he travels to China where he’s extremely popular.

It’s not a good idea for co-stars to date on the set, actors should be professionals and do their job as actors. Relationships are not easy to keep together, especially for celebrities.

I have the medical reports, police statements and other relevant documents to verify that I was assaulted by Han and her family.”
