  • What's next for Kim Soo-hyeon-I, Lee Min-ho, Kim Woo-bin and Lee Jong-suk?

    2015/03/02, Source,
     It looks like it's time to rewrite the list of the '4 kings of Hallyu'. The original 'kings' Lee Byung-hun, Jang Dong-gun, Song Seung-heon and Won Bin are now in their 40s and are either taken (Lee Byung-hun and Jang Dong-gun) or confined to their girlfriends (Won Bin). The appearance of the young and fresh actors in their 20s, is overpowering. Kim Soo-hyeon-I, Lee Min-ho, Kim Woo-bin and Lee Jong-suk are mighty fan holders and guaranteed successful kings of Hallyu. Especially Kim Soo-hyeon-I and Lee Min-ho, who both have already been noted as kings of Hallyu in Japan and China for many years,...More

  • Oh Ji-ho: shrewd actor hidden behind dimples

    2012/08/14, Source,
    Actor Oh Ji-ho poses during an interview with The Korea Times in Samcheong-dong, downtown Seoul. / Korea Times photo by Kwaak Je-yup By Kwaak Je-yup Ask any Korean entertainment fan about heartthrob actor Oh Ji-ho and you would most likely receive an answer related to his signature smile. The singular focus on his facial expression - as well as his even more famous dimple - has been a mixed blessing. His good-guy image led him to be typecast in romantic comedy roles for most of his 15-year career, hitting a peak in MBC drama "My Wife is a Superwoman" (2009), where he played the nice but not so bright husband to co-star Kim Nam-joo's character. Then, in 2010, he wiped out that stereotype, playing an extremely serious general in period TV series "Chuno" ("The Slave Hunters") on KBS,...More

  • Actor Lee Jeong-jin's Movie Picks

    2010/11/18, Source,
    Lee Jeong-jin [10Asia] "I am actor Lee Jeong-jin and I'm still best-known for 2004 film 'Once Upon A Time In Highschool'", said the actor at the press conference for his new film "Troubleshooter" that premiered in September. It is not that he did not star in other films during the past six years. In film "Mapado" (2005) he evoked laughter by appearing in embarrassing 'mompe' pants (loose-fitting attire usually worn by old woman) and practically betraying his former career as a model and in MBC drama "9 End 2 Outs" (2007)" he offered his viewers with a different form of fun by playing a character full of twists called Byun Hyung-tae who looks like a perfectly charming guy only on the surface. And although he acted like a loser in the drama, writing down all the misdeeds his girlfriend makes and even fighting with her physically if necessary, he was still able to win women's hearts by being there when his girlfriend needed him the most. Nonetheless, it is the 2004 film "Once Upon A Time In Highschool" that stands as the most important character to refer to when describing actor Lee. Nothing could stop his character, the charismatic Woo-sik, who could scare off his opponents with just a few words. And he was the same when he had to leave school after losing in a fight against his rival or falling in love, knowing no hesitation. Just like Eun-joo (Han Ga-in) had chosen Woo-sik over the gentle, exemplary student Hyun-soo (kwon Sang-woo), it is this captivating aura that made Lee unforgettable to the audience,...More
