The major question is, will Yunho attend the Seoul International Drama Awards to receive the People’s Choice Actor award for his role as Baek Do Hoon for “SBS “Queen of Ambition” voted by fans?  Also, “Queen of Ambition” won for Best Drama. So, will Yunho be there to support the cast as well?  The next question is, if not, will SM Entertainment interfere?

If Yunho attends, depending on how the awards will be designed, will he be sitting with the cast of “Queen of Ambition” or next to Jaejoong?

Since Jaejoong has won Best OST “Living Like a Dream” for Dr. Jin, it is most likely he will attend and probably will perform the song; however, will he be singing in front of Yunho?

How many times will the cameras focus on Yunho and Jaejoong? What will Yunho and Jaejoong wear? How will their hair will be styled. Will their eyes meet with joy or they will just focus on the awards?

Fans are still waiting for Yunho’s confirmation which there should be an announcement of something soon.

The Seoul International Drama Awards will be the first public appearance for Yunho and Jaejoong. In private, fans should know they see each other.

On September 5, the 2013 Seoul International Drama Awards will air and it will be more talk about Yunho and Jaejoong than any other artists who has won or who has attended the event. This is going to be one exciting award ceremony.

The social media celebrity who has been detained in Beijing for hiring a prostitute is also allegedly involved in sex parties, the capital’s public security bureau said Wednesday.

Xue Charles Bi-chuen, 60, a Sina Weibo celebrity widely known as Xue Manzi, was detained by police along with another 26 suspects at the Anhuili residential community in northern Beijing. The crackdown followed repeated tip-offs from residents since late August.

The famous Chinese-American angel investor was captured last Friday when he was soliciting a prostitute, a 22-year-old woman surnamed Zhang from Huaiyang, Henan Province.

Local police said on Wednesday that when they found Xue, he first said he was an American citizen and claimed he would call his lawyer to handle this.

Zhang, who is alleged of prostitution, came to Beijing in May this year. The woman said she started to provide Xue sexual services since the beginning of August and the man paid her 1,000 yuan ($163.4) every time.

Xue gave her a 500 yuan raise from her usual price on the day they were caught at Zhang’s temporary residence.

The police also said that since May, Xue has procured at least 10 sex workers.

Sex workers could only identify Xue by seeing his face as he had never revealed his name or any other personal information.

According to sex workers involved in the case, Xue was quite famous among them as he bears distinct physical characteristics and frequently visited prostitutes.

Xue called one pimp, surnamed Ma, and asked her to introduce a girl to him the day before he was detained, but Ma refused, claiming Xue habitually delayed paying.

Xue was disgruntled and went to where Ma lived. Ma was ordered to find four girls then Xue had sex with three of them.

He also admitted that he has a problem with his addiction to soliciting prostitutes.

After the local police informed the US embassy in Beijing of Xue’s detention, in accordance with relevant regulations, on Saturday, the embassy sent its consular officers to visit him on Monday afternoon.

“We are aware that a US citizen has been detained in Beijing, and the embassy will provide all appropriate consular assistance,” Justin Higgins, acting spokesman of the US embassy, told the Global Times late Wednesday in an interview.

But he refused to make further comment due to “considerations of privacy.”

The case is still under investigation, local police said.

Xue Manzi, who currently has over 12 million Weibo followers, has advocated for critical illness insurance in China, initiated a campaign to track down trafficked children and called for transparent details on pollution in the country.

Despite having denied his relationship with model Anna Kay earlier, Hong Kong actor Aaron Kwok was at a loss when he was caught with the model at his apartment recently, and he had to call the police to disperse the paparazzi swarming outside his residence.

As reported on QQ website, on the night of 25 August, the Hong Kong paparazzi was alerted that Anna, who had spent a day at the “Cold War” actor’s place last month, is back in Hong Kong and has been staying at Aaron’s place.

At 9pm, the paparazzi spotted that the curtains at his house were moving, showing that there is someone trying to take a peek to make sure that the coast is clear.

Two hours later, the police arrived, saying that someone had made a call to them and reported about a mass gathering outside the apartment and quickly dispersed the paparazzi.

A few minutes after, a seven-seater car exited the premise with its curtains drawn, prompting several photographers to chase the vehicle, while others stayed put.

An hour later, approximately 12.20am, another car, owned by Aaron’s good friend Eric Chow, exited the place with the 26-year-old model inside. Upon realising that they were still tailed by the paparazzi, Eric dropped Anna off at a nearby apartment where she then took another car to leave.
