“Boss” Kim Jaejoong, First Script Practice with Ji Sung and Choi Kanghee

Ji Sung, Choi Kanghee, Kim Jaeojong, Wang Jihye – the very attractive “uber-powerful dream line” — had a delightful first meeting.

The leads of the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama Protect the Boss that will air as a follow-up ti City Hunter on August 3rd – Ji Sung, Choi Kanghee, Kim Jaejoong, Wang Jihye, Park youngkyu, Cha Hwayeon, and Kim Chung has gathered in one place for script practice.

The script practice, which took place in the drama practice room of the Ilsan Production Center on the 29th, was congenial from the beginning to end. The enthusiasm of the actors who were overflowing with live energy despite meeting for the first time heightened the atmosphere of the set.

Ji Sung who is attempting a daring transformation through the role of Cha Jihun who is the immature youngest son of a Chaebol corporation who has a quirky side appeared in a unique hairstyle resmiscent of Miyagi Ryota of the popular manga Slam Dunk and gathered all eyes.

Choi Kanghee, who will collaborate with Ki Sung, also stepped outside of the sophisticated bob she had until now to have long straight hair with bangs emitting innocence and thus gathered eyes.

Kim Jaejoong, who is challenging himself for the first time in a domestic drama through Boss announced his refreshing start through a comfortable and natural reading of the script. He will play Cha Muwon, the “Prince of the Financial World” who has powerful abilities. Jaejoong will play a perfect man but at the same time he will have a comic contest with Ji Sung who will play his cousin.

Wang Jihye also put herself to script practice in a lively and effervescent manner throughout the session. Park Youngkyu, Cha Hwayeon, Kim Chung and such established actors and their veteran acting shined also on the set of the script practice.

The production company replayed: “Thanks to the attention-absorbing script of Protect the Boss, a refreshing and lively romantic comedy, the filming set burst into one laughter after another. The expectations for the actors and the production team of Protect the Boss which has begun to film in earnest are also in abundance. We ask for much attention and anticipation for Protect the Boss which will gift fresh and delightful laughter to the viewers.”

Why was U-Know Yunho clenching his teeth?

In the second pair competition of ‘Kiss&Cry’ that was held at the SBS Ilsan Production Center on June 21st, U-Know Yunho signaled an extravagant revival with a charismatic performance.

Because of his recent concert schedule in Europe, U-Know Yunho has not been able to practice his skating for a period of time. This meant that his partner Claudia had to attend the mid-week assessment alone, causing fans to worry about his future stance in the competition.

The worry was heightened by the fact that U-Know Yunho placed 8th out of ten teams in the first competition due to the mistakes he made while performing.

But U-Know Yunho partook in the second competition and had the ‘Rose Evaluators’ fired up with his extravagant dancing and b-boying skills.

After his performance, U-Know Yunho said, “I’ve never been so worried about a competition as I was for this one. But I rehearsed my part on the ground because I didn’t have access to a skating rink, and I had faith in my partner Claudia.” During his stay in Europe, U-Know Yunho took every minute of spare time he had to put on his skates and rehearse his routine, whether he was in his hotel or on the streets.

His partner Claudia was moved when she heard how hard U-Know Yunho worked to find time to rehearse.

Sports Seoul held a ‘Idol Awards For The First Half Of 2011′ with 100 idols who are currently active. Through this survey, the idols were able to reflect on the first half of the year and determine who were the best. We will look into the best hit song, the best music video, the most addictive song and the best rookie of the year that the idols chose.

After partaking in a legal battle against his former agency, the amount of activities he does has reduced drastically, he still receives support from his fellow singers. Junior idols who voted for Kim Junsu praised his vocal talent and said, “His voice is so nice”, “He has the best vocal skills in Korea”, and “He can take on and perfect any and every genre.”

Since firing up Paris, France, TVXQ have been busy with their domestic and overseas activities.

Releasing their new single ‘Superstar’ on July 20th, TVXQ will be kicking in with their Japanese activities. They have already proved their worldwide popularity at Le Zenith de Paris on June 10th and 11th when they participated in the ‘SM Town Live World Tour in Paris’ performance to commemorate the 2010-2012 Visit Korea Year.

At the time, international fans flocked to the De Gaulle Airport to catch a glimpse of TVXQ, causing chaos to ensue. European fans prepared placards in Korean and a variety of balloons and banners, even singing TVXQ’s hit songs in Korean to show their love for the group.

On the other hand, according to TVXQ’s official Japanese homepage( on June 16th, the group’s new single will contain the title song ‘Superstar’ and ‘I Don’t Know’, the theme song for the TV commercial of the ‘Sogo Seibu Card’, which has been airing since May.

After releasing their new single, TVXQ will be participating in a-nation, Japan’s biggest summer music festival. TVXQ will be standing on that stage for the first time in two years.

TVXQ are planning to participate in both Japanese and domestic schedules from now on. U-Know Yunho is currently working hard to hone his figure skating skills for SBS’ ‘Kiss And Cry’.

The big change has been teased for a while, but the stills are out to prove it at last: Park Yoochun finally sheds the bowl cut he’s been rockin’ for ten episodes of his MBC melodrama Miss Ripley and unveils a shorter, fresher, frankly much more attractive hairstyle for upcoming episodes.

Sure, the straight-banged helmet hair he’s been sporting thus far had its own boyish effect, which worked with his character’s innocent appeal and good-natured optimism. Still, change is good, no? The shorter look ages him a little, which is good since it makes him look a little more masculine, and a little less “There there, eat your vegetables and I’ll tell you a bedtime story.”

No doubt this external change mirrors an internal one for his chaebol character, Song Yoo-hyun, in Miss Ripley. In recent episodes, he’s been enjoying his blossoming romance with liar-liar-tight-pants-on-fire (anti-)heroine Miri (Lee Da-hae), but as her lies quickly grow from molehill proportions to mountains, no doubt there’s more angst in the couple’s future.

Miss Ripley airs Mondays and Tuesdays, and Yoochun’s new look will be revealed in Monday’s Episode 11.
