Lee Seung Gi has suddenly come under fire on suspicions that he’s dissed Park Yoo Chun in his drama.

After netizens pointed out that a line of dialogue from the April 12 broadcast of MBC’s The King 2Hearts seemed like it was aiming a blow at SBS’ Rooftop Prince, fans of both dramas have been pitched into a battle regarding the line’s original intent.

The dialogue appeared in the scene where Hang Ah (Ha Ji Won) dances to Bo Peep Bo Peep to make the sad Jae Ha (Lee Seung Gi) laugh.

Hang Ah put on cute bear paws to dance out her cute dance, but Jae Ha only started scolding her, saying, “Are you going to hit your stalker fans with those?”

The line, however, seemed to refer to JYJ, Park Yoo Chun’s group, which was involved in an incident in which the members had been accused of using violence against their stalker fans.

The viewer boards of Rooftop Prince were swamped with posts about Lee Seung Gi’s line in The King 2Hearts, asking after the intent of the sudden reference to stalker fans.

Lee Seung Gi’s line probably wasn’t trying to be a direct hit at Park Yoo Chun and Rooftop Prince, but the fans were thoroughly ruffled anyway.

Before the Lee Seung Gi controversy, Lee Si Young started one of her own when she left a post on a DC Inside drama gallery (forum) that said ‘Rooftop Prince will catch up to The King 2Hearts’ and that she’ll ‘bet [her] wrists on it’.

She won’t be having her wrists taken away from her anytime soon because Rooftop Prince recently sprinted past The King 2Hearts, but The King 2Hearts fans have started coming up with movements to watch the drama on time for more viewership ratings, saying they won’t be leaving Lee Si Young’s wrists alone.

The battle between The King 2Hearts and Rooftop Prince is that fierce, and it’s getting more heated by the minute.

The King 2Hearts aired two episodes in a row on April 12, but its viewership ratings have been showing a definite downward trend, falling past those of Rooftop Prince. The King 2Hearts scored 11 percent and 12.5 percent in viewership ratings (AGB Nielsen Media Research) for an average of 11.75 percent on that day. Rooftop Prince, however, is on the rise with 12.5 percent, and KBS2’s The Equator Man is following suit with 10.8 percent.

Recently in an online community, a photo of Park Yoo Chun holding a VIP black card surfaced in a thread under the title, "Acting Cool With Only $100."

The photos uploaded were screen captures of Park Yoo Chun during a particular scene from the SBS drama, "Rooftop Prince." In the drama, Park Yoo Chun plays Yong Tae Yong, a man who comes from a wealthy background that goes back three generations. And so, for this particular reason, every time Yong Tae Yong needs anything, he pulls out his black card that allows him to purchase whatever he wants.

However, the black card that Park Yoo Chun's character so often pulls out, hides a great (?) secret. It is not the card with unlimited credit that it pretends to be-- In reality it is just a gift card. In plain English, the words gift card is printed on its face along with the amount 100,000 won which is a little less than $100.

Netizens who noticed this little error jokingly replied, "The props team must be punished~," "Only the color was black," "If he were in the Chosun Era, that amount would be worth a fortune."

In the drama, "Rooftop Prince," Crown Prince Lee Gak (played by Park Yoo Chun) travels 300 years forward in time with his loyal subordinates after losing his beloved Crown Princess. The drama paints a story of how this prince from the past tries to adapt to the 21st century and finds love with his true soul mate.

Actress Choi Yoon Young revealed an agreement she made in primary school. It was an agreement she had made with none other than JYJ’s Kim Junsu and Super Junior’s Eunhyuk.

In a conference for the movie that took place in a venue in Gwanghwamun on the afternoon of the 12th of April, Choi Yoon Young shared, “I had a promise with Kim Junsu-ssi and Eunhyuk-ssi, and now we’ve each managed to fulfill it.” It turns out that the three of them all graduated from Neunggok Primary School, and were in fact classmates in Primary 6.

Back then, while being in the same dance group for the school, the three of them practiced together and laid down a promise, “Let’s definitely meet again in a broadcast center someday in future!” Kim Junsu and Eunhyuk individually debuted earlier as singers, and following that Choi Yoon Young was chosen as a talent by KBS in 2008 and managed to carry out her part of the promise they had made as children.

She added, recounting her past experiences, “At that time, our teacher-in-charge would often ask us to perform for talent shows, and we would go out and dance together.” After recently watching the Musical Elisabeth that Kim Junsu appears, Choi Yoon Young posted on her twiter account, “Junsu’s skills really improve as time goes by!! I watched really well~!!” revealing her after thoughts on the performance.

Meanwhile, Choi Yoon Young plays the role of South Korean table tennis national representative Choi Yeon Jung in the movie ‘As One’ that tells the true story of the first ever united South and North Korean table tennis team formed. Her character who plays alongside Ha Ji Won (who plays Hyun Jung Hwa) to show good chemistry as part of a duo, also forms the one and only love line in the movie together with Lee Jong Suk’s character, a representative from North Korea. The movie is expected to be released sometime in May.

Is this the Charles Bridge in Czech Republic?Anyway, it's beautiful~
This one's the Bridge of Paris..
Oddly, since I was a child... I've always liked photos of beautiful sceneries from all over the world..~I've always liked paintings of sceneries more than things like fine art, portraits, figure paintings, and sculptures.. Whenever I look at pictures or paintings of beautiful landscapes, can I say that it's a feeling of having my heart that has stopped somehow be revived?Anyway, yeah.. it's a comforting feeling...

Now, even at this view, I get a vague feeling of relief that I can breathe in a beautiful place like that...
