Joo Won shared his thoughts on physical contact on JTBC’s Witch Hunt.

While filming the 64th episode of Witch Hunt, Joo Won held a discussion with the MCs on ‘My Girl’s Skinship.’ During the show, a citizen shared his concern about his girlfriend, who was innocent in the beginning but has turned too aggressive about wanting skinship.

Joo Won said, “I also prefer it when my girlfriend is shy about having skinship in the beginning instead of being enthusiastic,” adding, “But she probably can’t continue being shy even after being in the relationship for a long time. It’s natural to become more honest.”

Moreover, when Joo Won appeared during the show, Sung Shi Kyung said, “He is a dongseng with lots of aegyo and naturally has skinship with his hyungs.” Joo Won agreed with him and explained why he does that, bringing out empathy.

Then Shin Dong Yeop said, “Actually, Joo Won is really smart when it comes to that. He purposely has skinship with hyungs in front of people so that he can naturally do the same with nunas,” causing a round of laughter.

Witch Hunt featuring Joo Won is set to air on October 31.

More detailed information for rapper MC Mong’s comeback album has been released by his agency before he returns to the music scene.

The album “Miss Me or Diss Me” has 13 tracks, many of which are focused on the theme of longing, MC Mong’s agency Well Made Yedang Entertainment said yesterday. The title track “Did You Miss Me” also contains sentiments of longing.

The 35-year-old’s agency said all of the songs were written by the rapper and they deal with MC Mong’s personal life over the five years since he left the music scene.

The full lineup of singers who collaborated with MC Mong on his sixth album was also revealed.

The singers include Ailee, Hyolyn of Sistar, Minah of Girl’s Day, Bumkey and Baek Ji-young.

Although “Did You Miss Me?” is the title track, the agency said music videos have been recorded for some of the other tracks that have the potential to become hits.

MC Mong, who was beloved for his humor and down-to-earth personality, has led a prolific career both in music and on variety TV shows. But his career was abruptly cut short five years ago after he was involved in a legal battle because he allegedly tried to evade his military duty by having some of his teeth removed.

MC Mong was later cleared of the accusations, but it took him five years to return because of the sensitivity of trying to dodge military duties. Some celebrities who have tried to avoid the military never returned to their previous fame because of sour public opinion, such as singer Steve Yoo, or Yoo Seung-jun.

MC Mong’s new album will go on sale at midnight on Nov. 3.

Good news for fans of the “snail couple”: actor Jang Hyuk and actress Jang Na-ra will reunite for a single-episode MBC drama on Nov. 9.

The special short drama, “Old Good-bye,” is about a boxer named Su-hyuk whose wife has died. But he travels into the past and re-encounters his wife. In the drama, Na-ra is expected to broaden her acting scope as she plays a character from when she is a teenager to when she reaches her 30s.

The drama was produced by Kim Hee-won, who also co-produced the actors’ previous drama “Fated to Love You,” which ended in September.

The Jang couple earned the nickname “snail couple” in that drama because Na-ra’s character was called a snail in the series for her slow but determined spirit.

“Old Good-bye” will air at 12:15 a.m. on Nov. 9.

Actress Han Ji-min will reunite with actor Hyun Bin in the upcoming romantic comedy-drama series “Hyde, Jekyll and Me,” which will start airing in January.

The two paired up in the period film “The Fatal Encounter” earlier this year.

In the rom-com drama, Han will play Jang Ha-na, the team leader of a circus group working for a theme park called “Wonder Land.”

She opposes Ku Seo-jin (played by Hyun), the owner of the theme park, as he tries to scrap the circus show. Ku has everything from fame to fortune but distances himself from society after dealing with a tragic accident.

Jang eventually falls in love with Ku, who has two drastically different sides to his personality, just like Jekyll and Hyde.

The drama series is an adaptation of a popular webtoon of the same name.

It will be the 32-year-old actress’s first drama series in two and a half years after she filmed “Rooftop Prince” (2012).

The new drama series will be directed by Cho Young-kwang from “Queen of Ambition” (2013) and written by Kim Ji-wun from “Cheongdam-dong Alice” (2013).

Moses Chan Ho two nights ago with Susan Shaw Yam Yam and director Amos Why (Wong Ho Yin) attended the film DOT 2 DOT (DIM DUI DIM) premiere. Chan Ho said that in the film he had zero intimate scene with the lead actress. Although this was a romance, only he after the shoot felt like he did not even dating. It was rather suitable for him.

Speaking of Aimee Chan Yan Mei revealing that their next child will still be a boy, Chan Ho who stated that he wanted a daughter said, "Next one will probably be a girl, the chances are great! Now at this age the more children the better, it is a blessing from the Lord. Having a soccer team would be the best!" he continued to say that they would have as many children as Heaven would bless them with, because this joy was the happiest in the world. Was Aimee willing to have an entire soccer team? Chan Ho laughed. "She is OK, this has always been our plan. We aren't deliberately trying for a daughter, we both really like children." He said that after a few more children they would have to move to a bigger home. Chan Ho agreed that he definitely would, but he was certain that his son Aiden would be even happier after having a young brother since he would have company in sports. Would Aimee have no time for ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Director Dante Lam Chiu Yin's film TO THE FORE (POR FUNG) went to the western Inner Mongolia and one of the four great deserts of China, the Tengger Desert. Four leads Eddie Peng Yu-Yen, Shawn Dou Xiao, Choi Si-Won and Carlos Chan Ka Lok were excited about being able to ride their bicycles on the desert highway; yet the almost daily temperature difference between zero to 30 degrees Celsius made them suffer a lot. Thus as soon as they returned to Shanghai they celebrated!

Peng Yu-Yen two years ago worked on a costume series on the Tengger Desert, thus he was very familiar with the location. The experience however was different. He said, "Before I was in a battle in heavy armor in the summer heat, this time I had flimsy bicycle uniform on the highway in the cold autumn. The longer I rode the colder I got, the contrast truly was too strong." Dou Xiao last year almost spent a year in Inner Mongolia for work, so he understood the horror of the northern desert very well. Choi Si-Won arrived two days later than the rest of the cast due to his concert, as soon as he arrived he complained to the director and other actors, "I really miss Kaohsiung and Kenting! The sunshine of Tainan was very comfortable!"

The strong ultra violet ray of the desert left many on the ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The film HOSUE OF WOLVES (NGOK YUN GUK) yesterday held its production start ceremony. Attending actors included Francis Ng Chun Yu, Ronald Cheng Chung Kei, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Ella Koon Yun Na and Babyjohn Choi Hong Yik. Cheng Chung Kei and Ella yesterday appeared in costumes as the outdated village chief and the stained teeth village woman.

Ronald had to play the village chief so he got a darker tan. He even added pads to his shirt and added a high waist belt to look outdated. He admitted that high waist pants and shoulder pads were rather gross. This time he worked with Candy Yu On On for the first time, he did not expect her to be willing to play a village woman. She in the film often called him a jerk and he never expected her to be so funny. In addition Ronald's wife is expectant in February. He said that he will work until the end of November. Because he could not return to Hong Kong in time for the birth of his first daughter and he regretted it, this time he would stop working in advance. He has already prepared to go to the delivery room with his wife, cut the umbilical cord and shoot videos. He even bought a new ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Its actors Josie Ho Chiu Yi, Law Chung Him, Alex Lam Tak Shun and Philip Keung Ho Man attended. Other guests included Wylie Chiu Shek Chi, Melvin Wong Kam Sun and Chiu Nga Chi.

Him Jai was asked about his role. He joked, "Miscellaneous, like a driver, a murderer, a part time boyfriend and others. (Did you have to show off your muscles?) I had a back tattoo, but it was fake. I didn't dare to get a real one." In the film he was sloppy. He joked that the new director was looking for a breakthrough. He himself was vain but this time he was happy that he did not have to perform with makeup or shave. Everyday he could save two hours to sleep in. As for intimate scenes, he admitted that he had a kiss scene with Taiwan actress Peggy Tseng Pei-Yu. The bed scene was briefly glanced over. Did he have to give his girlfriend Tavia Yeung Yi any advanced warning? He said, "I never need to, actors always have this type of scenes. We have to be mentally prepared."

After a year of planning and a hefty investment, newly-married actress Sharon Chan has finally launched her cookie business, Blesscuit.


According to On CC News, the TVB star recently held the opening ceremony of her new store, attended by celebrity friends that include Christine Ng, Jazz Lam, Janet Chow, and Roger Kwok.


Sharon's good friend Sammy Leung also appeared at the store as the event's MC.


Thanking her husband William Lui for his support and advice, Sharon expressed, "I love eating cookies, and I hope that I can send out positive energy into the world through this."


The actress disclosed that she chose the name Blesscuit as she hopes for it to be a blessing, and that the cookies come with blessing cards so that the customers will feel the love as well.
