Such a natural beauty !

For their drama roles in Big and A Gentleman’s Dignity, Lee Min Jung and Jang Dong Gun were spotted wearing same bag, Valextra S Series, an Italian luxury bag.
Lee Min Jung wore an ivory shoulder cross bag while Jang Dong Gun wore a camel-color shoulder bag.
Coincidence or not but Valextra bag was the bag promoted by Jang Dong Gun’s wife ,Ko So Young, for Harper’s Bazaar magazine last May.
How much is the price tag of the bag ?
Valextra S Series is valued around US$ 3,400.
A bit over the top for high school teacher Gil Da Ran (Lee MIn Jung’s role in Big), doesn’t it ?
In the last couple days, media got busy with the conflict in the girl band T-ara as there’s rumor that T-ara members were bullying Hwayoung.
Finally, on July 30, T-ara’s agency Core Contents Media announced statement to disband Hwa Young, its member, from the group. The decision was taken after the agency received T-ara’s members opinion, including 19 staffs (5 stylist, 7 hair and make up staffs, 5 site managers, and 2 team managers).
But, that decision resulted negative impact from the fans. T-ara’s concert on August 11 is postponed because many fans returned the tickets.
And many netizen demanded that T-ara’ member Eunjung, Hyomin and Soyun to step down from their upcoming dramas.
Eunjung is playing the leading lady in Five Fingers, upcoming SBS’ weekend drama. Hyomin also joins the cast of One Thousandth Man, the upcoming MBS’s sitcom.
While Soyun makes acting debut with KBS2 drama Haeundae Lovers which will air next week.
Will they step down ?
Apparently not. As they would keep their acting job on those dramas because T-ara’s problem is a different case with their solo acting job.
While he was appearing in KBS’ variety show 1 Night 2 Days which was aired on July 29, Joo Won revealed his ideal woman .
He said ,” I consider basic standard of human being very seriously. So, I like a girl who keeps the basic rules of human being”.
He added ,” I often think / meditate by myself. I think what is the most important thing in human’s life. I think that respect to old people is also very important”.
So, in conclusion, Joo Won looks at the girl’s character first, not her pretty face and long legs , right ?
Between her acting job, Lee Si Young also focused on her boxing career.
And she just added another champion title on her resume on July 26.
She won the 33rd Annual National Female Amateur Boxing Championship in her specialize 48 kg class.
In the final, she beat previous year’s champion Ji Yoon Ji by 10 to 7. Daebak !
If you want a sneak peek of her boxing action, see below video when Lee Si Young won previous boxing championship.
And for her acting career, after drama Wild Romance earlier this year, the 30-year-old actress will switch to a movie titled Male Instruction Manual which will start filming soon.
Han Chae Ah doesn’t have a lot of screen time compared to other Gaksital‘s stars such as Joo Won, Park Ki Woong and Jin Se Yun which means she doesn’t have a lot of time in the filming set.
But, it didn’t stop her to show her generosity and caring to all the drama crew.
On July 18, she prepared 150 bowls of samgyetang (Korean traditional chicken soup) , a perfect dish for the crew and actors who battled hectic filming schedule in the middle of hot summer.
She visited filming set in the remote area and served those samgyetang and makgulry (korean alcoholic drink) although she didn’t have filming schedule that day.
The Bridal Mask’s crew said that Han Chae Ah is very kind, she always carries jelly and candies for all the crew and takes care other actors very well.
Turned out, the real Han Chae Ah was the total opposite from her character in the drama, a cold and dangerous woman Ueno Rie. Ha !
Cha Tae Hyun arrived as the guest for KBS2 talkshow show Win Win on July 24.
The talkshow was hosted by Kim Seung Woo and Lee Su Geun, Cha Tae Hyun’s buddy in other KBS2 variety show 1 Night 2 Days.
Cha Tae Hyun revealed that for him, Kim Seung Woo is the most surprising member of 1 Night 2 Days. He said, “At first I thought that he would not adapt easily but turned out he adapted very well. I joined that show hoped that I would be close with Lee Su Geun and Uhm Tae Woong. Then I found out that Uhm Tae Woong is one extraordinary person as he criticized almost everything during shooting”.
In the show, Cha Tae Hyun revealed that he married his first-love, his high school girlfriend after 13 years of dating.
He said , ” People think that it’s wonderful that I married my first love, but actually it’s not so great. I just followed the situation. If I ever had a chance to meet other girls, I might also marry to different woman. Sometimes I wish that I could return to my bachelor times”.
He’s kidding, right ? Ha !
Win Win presented Cha Tae Hyun’s father, Cha Jae Wan, as the surprised guest for the program.
Cha Jae Wan made people laughed as he revealed ,”Actually, I also wanted to be an actor when I was young. But then I found out that I wasn’t tall and my head was so big. So I gave up. During that time, only handsome man became an actor”.
This father also thanked his son ,”I had a big debt because of my unsuccessful business. Tae Hyun paid it all and bought me a house with his income”.
A source close to Won Bin told Korean media Osen on July 23 that Won Bin received offer to play a role in upcoming TV drama from famous writer Noh Hee Kyung.
The source added that Won Bin is considering it positively because writer Noh Hee Kyung is very famous but nothing is confirm at the moment.
Ck, ck ck !
It’s almost unimaginable that Won Bin would return to TV again.
But as other megastar , Jang Dong Gun, successfully made a 12 years comeback to TV with A Gentleman’s Dignity, perhaps it also fueled Won Bin’s interest.
If Won Bin agreed to join, then it would be a 10 years comeback for the 35-year-old actor who filmed Japan-Korea short drama Friends back in 2002.
For the upcoming drama itself, there’s still no news about the title , but it will be directed by PD Kim Gyu Tae who also directed Noh Hee Kyung’s previous dramas Padam Padam and World Within.
