The story of two women who jumped in front a moving train in April 1931 has been made into the musical "Kongchilpal Saesamryuk".
The title is an old Korean phrase meaning to talk about this and that behind people's back. It was widely used in modern Seoul in the early 1900s. It is also the name of a children's song by composer Hong Nan-pa, who was the uncle of the musical's heroine Ok-im, who wrote a children's poem by the same title,...More
[INTERVIEW] Big Bang G-Dragon Pt. 2 2010/12/29, Source,
Big Bang G-Dragon [Chae Ki-won, Lee Jin-hyuk/10Asia]
10: That was why I felt bad about "Heartbreaker". While you did a thorough job on perfecting a single idea with " Lies ", that same process was missing in "Heartbreaker" giving a likely reason to doubt even if it wasn't a plagery. I wonder if things could've turned out different if you had more time. G-Dragon: That's when I realized that I will always need much time for preparation. I used to compose songs on the spot, as if pulling things out of a vending machine but now I can't bear to stand before my fans with music made in such a way, and it also affects my attitude on stage as well,...More

"I increasingly started to realize that this is not an easy job while it's also the only thing I know how to do. At least with what I've been given". Of course, no matter how strong the desire, all hope will be lost if an actor is not given any work. Nevertheless, this young actor was able to make a successful debut in "World" by portraying the character of Yang Soo-kyung, who is a nuisance that cannot control his emotions. And now, he is gaining popularity with an entirely different role -- as the cold-hearted Lee Ji-hoon in MBC's sitcom "High Kick Through The Roof". That is why, despite his young career, it is not awkward associating this man as an actor. Even more so because he thinks analyzing his character Ji-hoon's emotions for Se-gyeong and Jung-eum is more important than simply gaining popularity for his role.,...More
