Artists Wong Yau Nam, Anthony Wong Chau Sun and Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin starred in the new film GANGSTER PAY DAY (DAI CHA FAN). In the film Wong Yau Nam got between his god brother Wong Chau Sun and Choi Cheuk Yin. Because he was loyal he kept Choi Cheuk Yin at bay. Yau Nam said that in real life if he ran into someone he liked, he would not back off and would take the initiative instead. "The love with Choi Cheuk Yin in the film was more ambiguous. It can't be played too directly. So my performance had to be more reserved and just right. It certainly had its difficulties."

As for working with Best Actor Wong Chau Sun again, he said that this time he finally had scenes with him. "Off camera I even very daringly asked him for his number, thinking that I would ask him about film. At first I was a little scared that he would turn me down, I didn't expect him to give it to me. However he played mean and asked me, 'What are you going to do with it?'"

Nine-member K-pop boy group ZE:A, also known as Children of Empire, will temporarily perform without Moon Jun-young, the leader of the group.

Star Empire Entertainment, the boy group’s agency, issued a letter of apology yesterday to the band’s fans for causing trouble with Moon.

The entertainment company released the letter as an answer to a message Moon wrote on his Twitter account last month.

Moon’s tweet publicly blamed the head of the entertainment company for mistreating the group’s members.

“Kim Tae-heon [a member of ZE:A] got hurt while he was shooting a reality TV show, but we didn’t treat him properly right after and it enraged the members,” the entertainment company said through its letter.

“Moon thought he couldn’t communicate with the company and he resorted to Twitter and the public for the sake of his group members.”

The agency added that “the company established a new system by reflecting opinions of all the ZE:A members, and all the employees and executives of the company apologized for causing trouble.”

The company also said that Moon’s temporary departure is “giving him time to plan for his future career and performances.”

Actress Kong Hyo-jin has chosen a theatrical play as her next project after finishing the drama series “It’s Okay, That’s Love,” according to Soop Entertainment, the actress’s agency.

Having debuted in 1999, Kong has been featured in popular films and drama series such as “Thank You” (2007), “Pasta” (2010), “The Greatest Love” (2011) and “The Master’s Sun” (2013), but this will be the first time she tries her hand at theater.

The 34-year-old actress, who has often been dubbed “the queen of romantic comedy,” will play the lead role in “Educating Rita.”

She will be paired up with veteran actor Jeon Mu-song.

Actress Kang Hye-jeong is also double-cast as Rita. Both Kong and Kang are close friends.

The play will hit the stage early December and will run for about two months.

It is an usual move for an actress like Kong to choose to act in a play as she has already proved her acting prowess with her down-to-earth portrayal of various characters, from a single mother with a HIV-positive daughter to an over-the-hill girl group member.
