Korean actress Lee Da Hae won an award at the 2010 China Fashion Awards (CFA) held in Beijing of China on November 27th.
“Thank you for honoring me with such a big award and I will try to pay even more attention to my fashion. I thank China for the great love you have shown me and I will repay you with better acting,” Lee was quoted as saying in the press release.
Song Hye Gyo who has been missing from our screens for quite a while, returns with numerous outfit changes in her latest coffee CF.
The 30s CF for Doutor Coffee sees Song Hye Gyo go through five different outfits in order to get a free bottle of coffee and she also sings the CF jingle too.
After the CF release, it generated a big reaction from her fans, who commented that the guy look she portrayed was really good despite her being a female.
A spokesperson for Doutor Coffee expressed that they decided to get Song Hye Gyo because her popularity level had risen after her relationship with Hyun Bin was made public last year. They also felt that her overall image was made even cuter by that.
It’s been long since we last have an all-girl Fashion Watch lol but these shoots are flawless ;-)

Korean actor Sul Kyung-gu and Japan’s Yositaka Yuriko will appear in the second segment set in modern day Korea. A film director and a young woman fall into a love that transcends time and space in the pic named “Kamome” by Japanese director Yukisada Isao.
The final episode, set in the near future, will be helmed by Korean director Jang Joon-hwan. In the film titled “Love for Sale,” Song and Gang will play lovers who forget their memories about each other which later leads them to a fatal destiny.
Filming for the episodes will take place for about a month starting mid-January starting with “Love for Sale.” Creators of the film plan to submit the pic to the Cannes film festival this year.
Interesting article I stumbled upon during my visit at Soompi ^^
8 Steps to clean and beautiful skin: (according to the article –tips/rules on how to have nice smooth skin such as celebrities like Goo Hye Sun, Im Soo Jung, Kim Tae Hee & Song Hye Kyo)
1. Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
Keeping this habit would maintain the ideal level of moisture for your body and water also help detoxify your inside.
2. Get sufficient amount of sleep
While asleep, your skin cells renew themselves 10 times faster than during day time. The dead surface cells are more quickly removed from the skin as well. The natural release of melatonin that enhances revival and healing of cells and DNA is best processed during the night time without any daylight. So, make sure to get enough sleep.
3. Get some fresh air:
Oxygen is vital in quicker renewing and enlivening of the skin cells. Air pollution is not ideal for good skin, therefore, if you live in the polluted city areas, it is good for you to take hikes or nature walks regularly.
4. Periodic exfoliation:
Periodic deep cleasing is important in removing dead cells on the skin surface. Without it, skin pores may widen or be covered and more likely to create pimples and acne and even discolor the skin.
Get ready because this is gonna be complicated! lol
On today’s episode of Star Golden Bell, Brown Eyed Girl Narsha chose MBLAQ’s Mir as the best idol present.
Narsha said, “Mir is very fun. He is witty and cute.” Mir, on the other hand, picked Secret’s Hyosung, “She has the same sense of humor as me. I like women like that. She has good reactions towards everything.”
That’s not all that idols confessed. Lee Hongki was asked, “Do you have a girlfriend right now?” After hearing the question, he went silent. People were then more suspicious and he said, “It’s not like that.”
The MC’s teased him by saying, “You guys are just at the beginning stage?” and “You’re going to think about it after kissing her?”
Hongki was picked as the guy who seems very experienced with the opposite sex.
Lee Hongki said, “First love was in freshman year of high school and first kiss was in middle school.”
Jung Juri picked Lee Hongki and as her reason she said, “Players recognize players.”
Narsha also picked Hongki because, “He started working at a young age and when you see his stare on stage, it’s different. He looks like he knows a lot and expresses it through his eyes. When he sings, he looks mature. He can’t sing the way he does without experience.”
Lee Hongki also revealed that his ideal type for girl is someone who has an easy-going personality like Narsha and looks like Song Hye Gyo.
Doojoon of BEAST also picked Narsha as his ideal type only because Dongwoon of BEAST loves her and was singing her song next to him while he was picking. This must have hurt Hyosung because Hyosung went with Doojoon.
Wow, is this like a 10-way love match?
Seems like Song Hye Kyo didn’t make the cover of Vogue China for nothing ;-)

Recently, a Korean TV channel held a poll asking, “If you were to look like a certain actress, which one would you pick?” The poll was conducted among 1,431 ahjuhmah’s women who were within the ages of 30 to 45.
The choices provided were 5 famous female actresses which included Kim Tae Hee, Han Ye-seul, Song Hye Gyo, Han Chae-young, and Song Ye-jin… And the winner was Song Hye Gyo!
Song Hye Gyo won a close victory with 33% of the votes
Kim Tae Hee came in a close second place with 32% of the votes
I have a feeling this couple will last for a while ^^
On the October 3rd broadcast of KBS 2TV’s Yunyega, Hyun Bin revealed his affection towards girlfriend Song Hye Kyo. After appearing together in the KBS 2TV Monday/Tuesday drama Worlds Within, a real love developed.
Hyun Bin revealed, “There were a lot of kiss scenes in the drama and I heard people around me telling me to stop.” He also said, “When I watch those scenes again, I think, ‘Ah! We really did have a lot.’”
Hyun Bin continued by adding, “At that time, there weren’t any special feelings toward Song Hye Kyo.“
To the question of ‘what point of Song Hye Kyo’s do you like most?,’ he answered, “We’re able to converse well with one another.” Though short, he said it with certainty making it enough to draw attention.

Korean actor Lee Jun-ki has been voted the top Hallyu star in China, according to his agency on Friday.
The actor came in first, beating Rain and actress Song Hye-kyo, in the “2009 Most Popular Korean Star” survey held by CRI Online, a major portal in China, Mentor Entertainment said in a press release.
Lee is also receiving attention in Taiwan with more than 80 media companies on Wednesday attending Lee’s press conference for a fan concert set for tomorrow. His Taiwan concert was delayed indefinitely last year due to a typhoon.
“The foundation of Lee’s popularity in the Chinese market is more solid than any other Hallyu star syndrome,” an official working at a Taiwanese broadcaster was quoted as saying. “I don’t think his popularity will decline anytime soon.”
The 27-year-old actor rose to stardom playing a woman-like male clown in the 2005 hit film “The King and the Clown”.
He is set to appear in the MBC drama, tentatively titled “Hero”, which will air in Korea in November.

In particular, Song Hye Kyo who is proud of her deep friendship with the late Jang Jin Young was so in grief on this day that she appeared to have no soul. For Song Hye Kyo, the late Jang Jin Young’s passing had a constant impact.
Throughout the wake, she did not stop crying nor could she keep herself steady and had to get support to hold herself up. The twosome appeared together in the SBS sitcom SoonPoong resulting in a close friendship.
In the meantime, Jang Jin Young’s funeral will take place on September 4th.

I only posted up the well known actors/actresses but I only left out like 5 people…
RIP Jang Jin Young.
The talented and beautiful actress revealed her emotions through a short interview for Vogue magazine, which she had a photoshoot for recently (see pics HERE).
• “I’m just an ordinary person. That is how I behave, [but] I don’t have any discomfort.”
• “I’m such a down-to-earth person.”
• “If I appear healthy then it’s because of my mom. From childhood, I grew up seeing the characteristics of a honest and independent mom. While living with my mom I’ve been really happy, so I’ve never felt a lack of anything.”
• “I don’t get attached to things that I can’t have. This is what my mom told me, of course.”
