First up from the F4 was Lee Minho where she stated: “Lee Minho is a very affectionate person and sociable, somewhat opposite of his persona as Goo Joon Pyo. He treats everyone very well and goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable.”
Goo Hye Sun who has took part in the recent KBS 2TV “Talk Show 樂” program recording has expressed on her activities planning for the second half of the year.
Goo Hye Sun mentioned, “Around the second half of this year, I have plans for a new drama.” She expressed, “The role will be similar as the second of “Geum Jan Di”.” (Geum Jan Di is a character from Boys Over Flowers)
Due to ”Boys over Flowers” aired last year, Goo Hye Sun has gathered rising popularity in Taiwan and Japan etc and has rosen to a hallyu star since then.
On the programme recording day, Goo Hye Sun who has successfully made her advancement into overseas also added on, “The role “Geum Jandi” at “Boys over Flowers” has brought a big turn in my acting life.” And she showed affection while saying.
awww…these two were my favorites in “Boys Over Flowers” 😦 every time Jandi and JunPyo act up, I always can find relief watching this couple♥
Actress Kim So Eun has come out and explained why her relationship with Kim Bum has become awkward now.
Kim So Eun will be appearing on the February 18th episode of Happy Together Season 3 to promote her new drama, A Good Day For The Wind To Blow where she was asked about her relationship with Kim Bum. If you didn’t know, Kim So Eun and Kim Bum were a couple in Boys Before Flowers and were coined as the SoEul couple by fans.
Before Boys Before Flowers, they were actually on really good terms with each other as they were both majoring in film studies at Chung-Ang University. As a result, they got along really well with each other during filming and their chemistry showed.
They maintained contact with each other even after filming ended and also collaborated together on several CFs.
Kim So Eun expressed, “After the drama ended, our relationship became kind of awkward because of all the scandals. Although we still have a good relationship like in the past, we couldn’t contact each other in the aftermath of all the scandals. Even when we meet at the tv station, it becomes very awkward between us.”
