Another enlistment day for another actor: This time it’s Smile, You star Jung Kyung-ho, who headed off on the afternoon of November 30 for five weeks of training, to be followed by 20 months of active duty. :(
Jung debuted in the 2004 drama I’m Sorry, I Love You, and has since appeared in dramas Time of Dog and Wolf and Ja Myung Go — but it was really last year’s sweet, romantic family drama Smile, You, in which he starred opposite Lee Min-jung, that bumped him up to mainstream fame. I found him especially charming in that drama for being a hilarious example of the beta male — not always the most suave or the most commanding, but very endearing with his earnestness and spot-on comic timing. (He also had a nice role in a one-act drama, The Great Gye Choon-bin, which showcased a more somber, thoughtful side of his acting.)
Jung was sent off by a group of media and fans, and answered a few short questions before making his formal enlistment:
You’re enlisting in the midst of an unfortunate incident with the Yeonpyeong Island attack.
“With the current state of affairs, I have a heavy heart. But I’ll work hard and receive my training.”
On a recent episode of KBS JOY’s SHINee’s Hello Baby!, Jonghyun has revealed his celebrity crush after being crowned as the Best Father. He was given a chance to select a female star to make a special appearance on the set as their child’s daily mother.
“I want Lee Min Jung and Shin Se Kyung to visit us,” he confessed.
Whether these two starlets will really make a special appearance on the show remains uncertain. Considering their immense popularity, their appearance would definitely skyrocket the ratings.
This episode will be aired on the 9th.
At least the U-KISS guys have some good tastes haha
Coming back with ‘Bingeul Bingeul’, U-Kiss (Alexander, Kibum, Dongho, Soohyun, Eli, Kevin and Kiseop) reveal their ideal types on ‘U-Kiss’ Vampire’.
U-Kiss’ maknae Dongho, who has been getting a lot of love from nunas, chose between the top stars of Korea easily, showing his honest character, which is distinctive of a Type B.
But one choice that Dongho had a hard time making was ‘SNSD VS KARA’. Seeing Dongho’s worried expression when picking between these two groups, and even asking if he could pass, the members burst out laughing.
Although Dongho had stated Shin Se Kyung as his ideal type, he quickly picked Huang Jung Eum over her in less than 10 minutes, showing off the badboy (?) side of a Type B.
When he had to pick between Park Boyoung and IU, whom he often states as his ideal type, Dongho could not hide his difficulty as he made an unexpected decision.
So between IU and Park Bo Young, who was the one Dongho picked as his ideal type eventually? Dongho, who likes older girls, picked Shin Minah as his final ideal girl.
Dongho, who picked Shin Minah because of her remarkable fashion sense, left her a video message saying “let’s go for a meal together”. Together with Dongho, Kiseop and Alexander’s ideal types will be revealed via rounds of “Ideal type World Cup” on ‘U-Kiss’ Vampire’.
Although Kiseop had a range of choices such as Han Hyo Joo, Lee Min Jung, 2NE1’s Sandara Park, the devoted Type A eventually still picked Goo Hye Sun as his ideal type. Big fan (?) of Lee Hyori, Alexander picked Sandara Park over Lee Hyori, getting rebuked by his members.
Can’t believe it’s been 2 years already..welcome back Gong Yoo!
Gong Yoo was released from the military on December 8, 2009, but he’s already hard at work. The “Coffee Prince” star had a couple photo shoot with Lee Min-jung (Smile, You).
Gong Yoo was off to serve his mandatory military service in January of 2008, at the height of his career after “Coffee Prince.” Since he came back to civilian life, he’s quickly returning to his celebrity life. He starting his road back into the limelight by being a model for Korean clothing store, Mind Bridge.
The 30-year-old actor looks long and lean in this photo shoot, and I imagine his acting comeback will be any time now.
Are you looking forward to a Gong Yoo-filled 2010?

The ‘fiancee’ here is actress Lee Min Jung, who was originally invited to star in G-Dragon’s MV!
Lee Min Jung, best known for her role as Gu Jun Pyo’s fiancée in popular drama “Boys Before Flowers”, was originally the female lead in G-Dragon’s MV for his first solo album. However, she gave up the opportunity and instead, starred in newbie group December’s MV.
As G-Dragon’s “Hearbreaker” album is enjoying record-breaking sales and extreme popularity, netizens were naturally curious about the reason behind Lee Min Jung’s decision.
In reply, December’s agency CS Happy Entertainment said that ‘Before Lee Min Jung became popular, she starred in Zia’s MV ‘Violin’. Hence, she was grateful for the opportunity we had given her then and hence decides to star in December’s MV.’ It was then said that the schedules would clash and that she would be unable to take part in G-Dragon’s MV.
As an insider in the K-pop industry put it ‘Although I understand her point of gratitude, isn’t it a waste to give up on such a great opportunity?’
According to CS Happy Entertainment, ‘At first, Lee Ming Jung didn’t know that she was invited to take part in GD’s MV. It is rare these days that an artiste will give up such a great opportunity and we are really grateful.’
