In the past, Kim Tae-hee's sister worked at Namoo Actors for 2 years. It was a permanent position with insurance. She was helping the managers and her sister who was making 5 billion won a year. There was no reason for anyone to stop the sister from coming into work and helping out.
However, there was a lot of noise about this as there is no case where a celebrity and his or her family worked out well together. There was also the question of how well a blood-related family could be rational when it came to making decisions about work and money matters,...More

The lives of celebrities never fail to intrigue the regular Joes out there. Much attention is paid to what they do, who they date, and where they live. Being that celebrities tend to seek out homes that are appropriate for their higher salaries in quiet neighborhoods where they can live out their private lives in peace, many coincidentally flock to the same buildings or areas.
For example, two very famous Korean star couples live in the same luxury-style villa in Samsung-dong of Seoul: comedian Lee Hwi-jae and his wife, and Korea's Brangelina, Jang Dong-gun and Ko So-young.

Psychiatrist Jin-suh (Kim Hye-soo) has written a book called "My Husband that Only I'm Unfamiliar With".

Sang-hyun is having another affair, this time with Yoon-hee (Hwang Shin-hye) who used to love him and Jin-suh is already going crazy over the fact that Sang-hyun and Yoon-hee still keep in touch because Yoon-hee loved Sang-hyun in the past and she is also the one that made sure Jin-suh witnessed Sang-hyun having an affair six years ago,...More

"The three are friends who spent their childhoods together. Yoon-hee (Hwang Shin-hye) and Jin-suh (Kim Hye-soo) have talked a lot since they were young. And Sang-hyun (Sin Seong-woo) is the first love to both female characters but Jin-suh marries him, taking away Yoon-hee's only man. That is why it becomes Yoon-hee's goal to beat Jin-suh", Kim Hye-soo explained of the story to upcoming MBC TV series "Home Sweet Home". The four actors gathered at the press conference for "Home Sweet Home" on Tuesday had definite characters -- from Kim Hye-soo the eloquent speaker who would add on descriptions, to explain what she feels to Sin Seong-woo who slowly spoke of only what he need to, to Hwang Shin-hye who with an innocent expression explained the surprise and excitement she felt when she received the script for the show, to Lee Sang-yoon who seemed a bit nervous being amongst his senior actors. But as soon as they were asked how they came to star in the show, as if promised, they became busy praising the script. Below are excerpts from the press conference,...More
