f(x)’s Sulli caught attention by finally making a public appearance.

On October 31, Sulli attended the press conference for the film Fashion King in Wangshimni CGV, about three months after her agency announced on July 25 that she will halt all activities through a press release.

At the time, SM Entertainment had sated, “Sulli will halt all activities for a while as she is emotionally strained from malicious comments and rumors.”

Sulli went public with her relationship with Dynamic Duo’s Choiza about a month after she halted her activities but did not make her appearance during press conference for the film The Pirates.

Aware of Sulli’s situation, the movie production team told the reporters, “We cannot answer questions that are not related to the movie.”

However, despite their concerns, Sulli stood in front of the reporters with a confident and cheery attitude.

She greeted them by saying, “I am Sullli, who played the role of ‘Eun Jin,” and added, “Did you enjoy the movie? I hope you can see me in a good light.” She couldn’t hold in her laugher in between the Q&A session, reflecting her current state of being in a more stable condition.

About how similar she is to her character ‘Eun Jin,’ Sulli jokingly said, “What Eun Jin looks like when she’s ugly is not different from how I look like at home. Eun Jin puts her priority in her school ranking but I tried to express her sincerity through my acting.”

She also said, “The reason I could film The Pirates and Fashion King the same time is all thanks to the director. I’m still thankful that he gave me this opportunity to work with him.”

In Fashion King, Sulli took the role of top student ‘Kwak Eun Jin.’ She will be actively attending promotional events for the film.

Singer-turned-actress Yoon Eun-hye has closed down her online fan sites just a month after they opened.

After the actress launched Jayami Entertainment, an agency she runs on her own, she opened new websites in September to communicate with her fans.

But she saw a backlash from netizens after considering a lead role in the film “Saranghuae,” which roughly translates to “After Love.” People opposed her appearance in the movie because it also stars Park Si-hoo, who was accused of rape last year by a 22-year-old woman.

Several fans posted comments criticizing Yoon’s agency. The actress then left warning messages, leading people to speculate that Yoon is against her fans who have cheered her on and were worried about her.

Her agency stated that the posts were “only for the cyberbullies.”

Yoon reportedly said that she posted the warning message aimed at the online critics, not at her fans.

After a scandalous exit from the local entertainment industry, actress Han Ye-seul, 33, will make a comeback in the upcoming SBS weekend drama “Birth of a Beauty.”

Han took a break from acting after landing a lead role in the KBS drama “Spy Myeong-wol” in 2011. A lot of fuss was aroused when she did not appear on set and fled to her parents’ house in Los Angeles while the drama was airing. Due to her absence, the program was cancelled and she was criticized for her irresponsible behavior.

Although she said she had problems with the staff and had suffered under the hectic schedule, Han’s image was tarnished after her departure from the series.

“It was not easy to come back after three years,” Han said at a press conference for the drama.

“I’m not that old, but everyone undergoes ordeals throughout life. It was neither avoidable nor was it my decision. I think the past is not important. I hope the public will focus on my future instead of the past.”

In the series, Han’s character has a head-to-toe makeover including plastic surgery and weight loss after her husband cheats on her.

According to the actress, she chose “Birth of a Beauty” as her comeback because she liked the role. The character does not represent a desire to be beautiful but instead shows how a woman overcomes her husband’s infidelity by achieving beauty, Han said.

Joo Sang-wook, Jung Gyeo-woon and Wong Ji-hye take part in “Birth of a Beauty,” which will start airing Monday.

TVB's Calendar theme for 2015 this time are the hit "main" series of each month. TVB's Deputy Director, Tsang Sing Ming, denied that the theme this year is due to the company reducing expenses: "It is not saving money. Every artiste took out the time to take these photos just for the calendar, and we even hired an external source for the design. We spent approximately a 7-figure sum for these photos." When the dramas come to air, they will still be making another official poster for the dramas. 26 fa dans and siu sangs head the cover of the calendar. 
Tsang Sing Ming responds: "The calendar can only print 12 dramas, but we have 20+ dramas every year. Like, Myolie's drama "Lady Sour", it will be airing in December, so we did not print it. So we placed her in the cover to make up for it. (Liza Wang, Dodo Cheng are not on the cover?) We have a few hundred people in the company, it is impossible to include everyone."
