In addition, earlier he announced online that his other film KUNG FU would have to halt preparation. Giddens Ko explained, "March to May next year will have been scheduled anew. Because it will be a co-production, it will have to wait for Mainland approval first. Earlier when I made CAFE and YOU ARE THE APPLE OF MY EYE, we shot as we waited. Ultimately we have to follow the Mainland rules of the game. (Did you feel bothered?) Luckily the film was not suddenly halted in production, otherwise the loss would be enormous."
As for first time actress Sung Yu-Hua, she said that many people liked Giddens Ko's novels. Thus at first she felt stressed, but later the more she worked the happier she got. She hoped that the box office would be able to break NT$100 million and even surpass APPLE's box office.

Earlier she even went to the 7 figure but soon to be demolished outdoor cafe set with the leads for a music video shoot.
In the music video, Ivana like her character appeared as a third party. When Ekin and Sister Na sat across from each other silently and Ivana sat between them to sing the sad lyrics, the air seemed to be frozen. Ekin tearfully and helplessly looked at Sister Na, whose queen like presence gradually turned into sorrow. Finally tears covered her face. Although they had no dialogue, all three were very in character. Later Ivana thanked the leads for sacrificing their bodies and tears for the shoot. She even revealed that she had an another motive for putting them into the music video. She joked, "Because in the film I was their background, so in the music video I gave them to be my background, haha!"

Ivana blurred out that it was a "break up columbarium", Ekin felt that everything that was left from a break up was "junk". Sister Na jokingly asked, "Then isn't ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

On the first broadcast of Channel A's "Dominant 7," actress Jun Ji Hyun's income was featured, showing that the top star has earned more than 20 billion won (~$20 million) from advertisements alone since the conclusion of her drama "Man From The Stars."
Jun Ji Hyun advertises a variety of items, from cosmetics and home appliances, to food products and clothing, showing her dominance in the field of entertainment.

Even with controversies surrounding the actress, like modelling for a water brand in China that caused backlash from Korean netizens, and starring in an advertisement that was rumoured to be plagiarized, her status as the advertisement queen is unparalleled.
Advertising professionals state that Jun Ji Hyun is popular among young women because she is looked up to as a role model, and popular among those in their thirties because she pulls off the balance between having a personal life and a professional life.

Actor Park Seo-joon, of the tvN drama “A Witch’s Love,” and actress Baek Jin-hee, who currently stars in the MBC sitcom “High Kick,” are not in a romantic relationship, the stars’ agencies said yesterday, refuting local reports that the two were linked.
“It is true that they have become good friends, as they filmed [the miniseries ‘Pots of Gold’] together for some time,” said Keyeast, an agency for Park.
“Since Park is currently abroad with a local shooting schedule, it might take a little time to confirm.”
After rumors broke out, Baek’s agency, Snow Ball Entertainment, said yesterday that the 24-year-old actress confirmed that she and Park were, in fact, “not dating.”
Last September, the pair appeared as a married couple on the 50-episode MBC weekend drama series “Pots of Gold.”
The local monthly magazine “Woman Sense” reportedly published an article in its August edition stating that the stars had been dating over the year. That story quickly spread, going viral across the Internet.
At a group interview Monday at a CJ E&M studio in Ilsan, Gyeonggi, singer-actor Seo In-guk, who stars as Min-seok in the tvN drama “High School King of Savvy,” explained that his character was charming both in his “candidness and boldness.”
The show, which currently airs Monday to Tuesday, traces the life of a varsity ice hockey player who is one day forced to join a circle of high-ranking executives at his father’s company by impersonating his older brother, who is nine years his senior.
“When I first read the script, I couldn’t figure out the exact intention behind the character,” Seo said. “However, now, I think that showing viewers Min-seok’s way of handling embarrassing or uncomfortable moments at work - which is not being afraid to face problems directly without giving excuses - was his purpose.”
When asked about the chemistry with his on-screen love interest Soo-young, played by actress Lee Ha-na, Seo answered that it feels “natural” to act with her.
“Even when the camera is off, we treat each other as if we are still in character,” he added.
