Goo Hye Sun’s Online Exhibition

Posted by diopatra on April 29, 2009


Following the April 1 release of her novel, Tango (탱고), Goo Hye Sun is holding an online illustration exhibition of key excerpts.

In cooperation with online auction hosting company Gmarket, Goo has chosen approximately 20 illustrations (half of what’s in the book) with short written passages to display on the internet.

Tango. We were one pair who were dancing the tango although Jong Woon’s feet and mine weren’t in step. We kept dancing, even if we were stepping on each other’s feet and enduring pain; hence, our feet already had too many scars.

Here is the direct link to the exhibition: Tango on Gmarket. The slideshow will begin as soon as the page loads.

Korean F4 on Japanese talk show

Posted by diopatra on April 24, 2009


Korean F4 (Lee Min Ho, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum and Kim Joon) and Gu Hye Sun went to Japan on April 15 to promote their drama Boys Before Flowers. They appeared in a Japanese talk show called Sakaseusang. The TBS Sakaseusang live TV talk show was shot in Akasaka, Japan.

F4 and Gu Hye Sun arrived just minutes before the live talkshow came to an end. Fans were quite disappointed to only be able to see the Korean actors for only 2 minutes. The host only managed to squeeze in a couple of questions to Kim Hyun Joong who replied in Japanese. He’s the only one who is fluent in Japanese.

After the program went off air, it has been reported that there was an additional 30 minutes where the Boys Before Flowers cast were interviewed and interacted with fans. The 30-minute clip has yet to be aired on Sakaseusang. However, below are some of the questions that were asked…

Where do you want to go first in Japan?

Kim Bum & Lee Min Ho: Harajuku
Kim Joon: Roppongi
Gu Hye Sun: Ueno Park
Kim Hyun Joong: Because I love beef, I really want to try deopbapin 덮밥인 famous beef bowl, “gyudong” 규동(牛丼) that I heard it’s very delicious (KHY replied in fluent Japanese)

Do you have any memorable memories in Japan?

Lee Min Ho: I’ve been to Nolreoon 2 years ago with a friend, and I didn’t know how expensive the taxi fare was from Tokyo airport to Shibuya. That was the price I won’t ever forget. (laughs)

[ The cab fare from the airport to downtown Shibuya is a close equal to the price of a round-trip air fare from Korea – Japan!]

What are your memories after working on the drama?

Kim Joon: Everyone was friendly on the set.
Kim Bum: Although the shooting schedule was physically and mentally taxing, it was a happy and fun time for me.
Lee Min Ho: Since the drama was shot in winter, many of us were suffering from cold. There was even one scene where I had to jump into a swimming pool on a cold wintry night. Because of that, i was eventually admitted to the hospital for a couple of days!
Kim Hyun Joong: I suffered from lack of sleep and was pretty much exhausted during the filming of the drama.

Lastly, Gu Hye Sun was asked who is her favourite F4 member and she replied Lee Min Ho and Kim Hyun Joong. (I’m not surprised…because those are the two she had to work the most with, and whom she had to kiss too! 😉
