One week ago, Angie Cheong (張慧儀) arrived at Discovery Park to attend the New Year's event, 福來金禧賀新春. She has participated in ATV series My Date with a Vampire II (我和殭屍有個約會II) and Showbiz Tycoon (影城大亨) so she expressed regret in regards to ATV's current financial dilemma. She thought back that even though ATV ratings were not as great as TVB's, ATV is really strict towards its productions' quality and thus she was moved to participate in filming their work. To thank ATV for giving her opportunities back then, Angie will be appearing as a guest on their variety program, ATV這一家,  to express her appreciation and support. She hope that all the ATV staffs will soon receive their pay in order to happily enjoy the new year.

Also present at the event, Nancy Sit (薛家燕) hope that her eldest daughter Justina Shih will find a boyfriend soon and not be too overly focus on work. She pointed out that her eldest daughter and rumored boyfriend Jonathan Wong is a misunderstanding, she is still single.

Even though recently the weather is warmer, the air temperature still lingers only around fifteen, sixteen degrees. Sitting outside in the open air, risk catching a cold, and warmly having a heart-to-heart is not a pair of couple but actually Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) and Whitney Hui (許亦妮). They were spotted sitting outside Lee Garden (利園) in Causeway Bay (銅鑼灣), having a deep, lengthy conversation.

The two were talking secretly nonstop, whispering and laughing loudly, and even constantly shared interesting stories from their phones. After realizing that reporters are present, Sisley joked that she and Whitney were having a heart-to-heart. It's actually because the two have finished the work they had on hand so they met up with each other while they're still free. The two earlier even boldly tried eating ice-cream on such a cold day, no wonder Whitney expressed on Weibo: "Every time we see each other, I'm so happy that I become crazy, I laugh until I drop onto the ground. I am fortunate because my friends that are by my side would act insane with me."

Seeing this, Taetiseo members, Tiffany and Seohyun, as well as the backdancers, pulled Taeyeon back up onto the stage. The stage production team explained, ′The event was getting delayed, so in the process of hurrying things up, a mistake happened.′

Following the accident, Taeyeon came down from the stage with the help of the members and was sent to the hospital to get examined. After a close examination, she was told, ′There aren′t major injuries, but her muscles around her waist are a bit startled.′

Actor-singer Ryu Si-won's five-year marriage ended on Wednesday as a local court ruled in favor of his wife in a divorce suit, judicial sources said.

The Seoul Family Court ordered Ryu to pay 30 million won ($27,700) in alimony to his wife surnamed Cho, recognizing the actor's responsibility in the marriage's demise, they said.

The 42-year-old actor was also ordered to give 390 million won or 15 percent of the property that he accumulated during the marriage to his wife, according to sources.

The couple married in October 2010 and have one daughter, but began divorce proceedings about two years later.

In 2013, he was accused of planting GPS tracking devices on his estranged wife's car and mobile phone to track her whereabouts, and then assaulting her when she protested the surveillance.

In September last year, the Supreme Court upheld a 7-million-won fine imposed on him for the assault and blackmailing his wife.

The film, directed by Yoo Ha, is also the finale of a trilogy that illustrates the history of Gangnam, which has now has become synonymous with wealth.

The other two movies that are part of Yoo’s “Gangnam” trilogy are “Spirit of Jeet Kune Do: Once Upon a Time in High School” (2004) and “A Dirty Carnival” (2006).

The original creator of the TV drama “Hyde, Jekyll, Me” accused the screenwriter of “Kill Me, Heal Me” on Wednesday of plagiarizing his work.

“I was the first to come up with a story about a woman who falls in love with a man who has multiple personalities,” Lee Chung-ho, the creator of the cartoon series the drama is based on, said on his Twitter account.

Lee also described that “Kill Me” was the result of “stealing.”

Both the Wednesday-Thursday drama series center on male protagonists who are suffering from multiple personality disorders.

Actor Ji Sung of “Kill Me” has seven different personalities while Hyun Bin, pictured below, of “Hyde, Jekyll, Me,” an adaptation of Lee’s web cartoon series, has two starkly different personalities.

Lee’s webtoon was first published in 2011.

“The planning stage for our drama series began about a year ago,” MBC, the broadcaster behind “Kill Me,” told the Korean news agency Edaily on Thursday.

“And last fall, we came to realize that there would be another drama similar to ours. That was when we heard about the webtoon series [of Lee].”

The production team of “Hyde” released a statement on Thursday that said Lee’s Twitter message is his own personal opinion and does not reflect the stance of the whole production team.

The first episode of “Hyde,” which aired Wednesday, has been greatly anticipated because it features actor Hyun.

The last drama Hyun starred in was “Secret Garden” in 2010.

It earned 8.6 percent of the nationwide viewership rating, slightly lower than “Kill Me, Heal Me” at 9.5 percent, which airs in the same time slot.
