It’s good to work for the charity activites and others, but how should they repay their fans? It’s only through their work, like movies or dramas.

What if a Hallyu star does not appear on TV or Dramas?
I would be very disappointed.
Are you really going to remain a fan?
I need to think about that.

“It’s said that ‘Dream High’ targets January next year for its broadcasting and they’ll select the performers through the audition” (Korean reporter). According to the Korean media, the audition is for men and women between the age of 16 ~ 35 who have confidence in themselves for singing, dancing and acting. It seems that it will be a strict evaluation because the film contains dancing or singing, which is less than 2 minutes long, is needed with the documentation for the preliminary test. 

He escaped Seoul before he started next project in full-scale.

“He visited Busan which is crowded with the swimmers for the summer vacation and stayed one night on Saturday, August 7th.” (Korean reporter). It’s said that he stayed in the condominium.

“I heard that he was with his staff and his sommelier friend. It seems that he trust him since they even went to Hawaii together.” (Korean reporter)

Were they engaged in the animated conversation about wine? Please be careful of tanning under the sun in summer, and we’re waiting for the information regarding the new work.

[News Trans]Park Jin Young will challenge acting in the drama “Dream High”, compete charisma with Bae Yong Joon

reposted from suehan's blog

Sports Chosun, 2010-08-13 11:06 



All around entertainer Park Jin Young will be expected to debut as an actor in the drama.

PJY plans to appear with BYJ in the drama “Dream High” (scenario Park Hye Ryeon, producer Lee Eung Bok), which will be airing on KBS2 on January 3, 2011, and will be competing charisma with BYJ. It has been known that “Dream High” consists of 16 episodes and was collaborated by Keyeast (BYJ’s agent), JYP Entertainment (PJY’s agent), and CJ Media. It also has been known that BYJ appears in this drama and PJY handles the music part but plans to appear as an actor.

Someone related to the drama said, “They are of the same age, born in 1972, and decided to plan and push forward this drama from the trust and chemistry of the Hallyu project between them. It’s hard to say that it has been confirmed, but we expect the talented PJY to present a characterful performance unless there are unexpected changes.” PJY will broaden his area as an actor, not only a singer and producer since his debut in 1994.

“Dream High” will start with the hypothesis that if there is an art school like LaGuardia High School which produced many American top stars like Al Paccino, Jennifer Aniston, etc. Using the Kirin Art School in Korea as its background, it is the youth drama portraying the growing process of four talented students becoming world stars. Two female students and two male students will compete for friendship and love, and one of them eventually will be the winner of the Grammy Awards Album of the Year in 2007. Just like Rain in Korea became a world star, Kay in the drama will become the idol star worldwide. The drama will be processed with the format tracing the school days of Kay.

Bae Yong Joon will take a role of Jung Ha Myung, a director of the Kirin Art School, who has “Midas hands” that find stars with his remarkable eye. The teachers of the Kirin Air School including Jung Ha Myung, make the secret organization like the movie “Man in Black” and try to find the gifted students who have the talents of the stars like the aliens. Park Jin Young will take the role of Jin Man who once dreamed of becoming a star like Mr. John Keating in the movie “Dead Poet Society”. He fell in love with the mother of one of his students and married her, but he is suffering from loneliness because he lost his wife in an accident. But he respects the dream and personality, finds Kay and concentrates in teaching him.

Someone related to the drama said, “We’ll select the leading student roles and supporting actors/actress through the audition and start the shooting at the earliest in autumn. But, there is a prediction that the members of the Wonder Girls and 2PM who are the real students of PJY will have important roles, so the acting competition between the teacher and students will become a hot topic again.

AUGUST 12, 2010

By HELEN SEUNGHEE YOON


SEOUL—For many years, dining in Seoul was distinguished mainly by mom-and-pop restaurants and a late-hours dining called pojang-macha in outdoor tents—all serving cheap Korean food.

But over the past few years, Seoul has quietly become a city for foodies. Just this spring, Zagat's, the U.S. publisher of survey-based dining guides, produced its first Seoul edition. The variety and sophistication of restaurants has exploded; foodies seeking Spanish tapas, Uzbeki shurpa and even New York-deli style pastrami sandwiches can now find them here. And Korean dishes are being revamped to mirror the broader upgrading.

So while gourmands from outside Asia are still more likely to stop in Tokyo, Hong Kong or Beijing than Seoul, a visitor who hasn't seen the city for a while will be stunned by the options, cuisines and quality that it now has to offer.

The change is largely shaped by the hundreds of thousands of South Koreans who have studied or worked overseas in the past decade, developing a broader palate and keener sensibility about the dining experience along the way. Among them are young Korean chefs who have gone off to train in culinary capitals like New York, Paris and London, then returned to start their own restaurants.

"Ten years ago, it was rare to see chefs who studied overseas," says Lee Yun-hwa, a food critic and chief executive of Diary R, a Seoul-based restaurant-guide publisher. "Now there are so many that people are no longer impressed by an overseas diploma. A great chef should have more than that, such as their own creative recipes."

Both Korean and foreign chefs are experimenting with multicourse menus—a typical Korean meal consists of many dishes served all at once—and more artistic presentation. Their aim is not only to increase its appeal to foreigners, but to show Koreans that their national cuisine, at its best, is on par with the finest French or Italian or Japanese food.

The food boom has also had its gimmicky side, such as the arrival of celebrity-owned restaurants.

Here's a snapshot of some of the people and places shaping Seoul dining now:

---omitted----

Star Allure 

South Korea's success at exporting movies and TV dramas made many of its actors famous around Asia. A few have capitalized by opening restaurants, as Hollywood actors have for decades.

Movie star Lee Jung-jae started the trend in 1998 with an Italian restaurant, Il Mare, in the Daehakno neighborhood. More recently, actor Bae Yong-joon's "Gorilla in the Kitchen" restaurant near Dosan Park in Apgujeong was for a time so popular that it drew lines of tourists, particularly Japanese women.

The restaurant displays no photos of Mr. Bae, star of "Winter Sonata," part of the "Korean Wave" of TV dramas that became international hits. There's no hint at his involvement. But fans know.


Now, the celebrity-restaurant trend has reached a new stage with the return of 38-year-old Edward Kwon, star of a different sort—a star chef. Ten years of cooking achievements outside Korea have made him a name in food circles back home. In 2003, while working at the Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco, he was named to a Top 10 list of young chefs by the American Culinary Federation. He went on to work in China and then as senior executive chef at the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai.

Mr. Kwon has opened three restaurants in the past year in Seoul. His newest, The Spice—in Seoul's expat-heavy Itaewon neighborhood—offers dinners for 40,000 won (about $34).

"Everyone thought that I would open up in an expensive area but I wanted to serve value without a high price tag," he says. "My target is not 1% of the population in Seoul. I can cook for the homeless. It doesn't matter who they are."
