Gucci on Tuesday unveiled its ad campaign with Korean actress Jun Ji-hyun, who will represent the Italian luxury fashion brand's accessories line in Asia.

The pictures were shot in London by Norwegian-born photographer Solve Sundsbo, following reports last November that the 33-year-old had signed on as the iconic fashion label's first Korean model.

"We chose her because she represents Asia," a Gucci spokesperson said in November 2014.

Jun, who won acclaim in the hit drama series "My Love from the Star" alongside actor Kim Soo-hyun, models eyewear, watches and jewelry in the promotional shots.

Along with the Horsebit collection's white gold and diamond jewelry and wristwatch, the "My Sassy Girl" actress also models the label's tortoise shell sunglasses and the Flora collection silk scarf and rose gold pieces, embellished with flowers and butterflies.

Jun is reportedly acting in the upcoming action flick "Assassination," slated for release this summer.

Kim Soo-hyun and Lee Min-ho on Tuesday denied Chinese media reports that they receive more than 800 million won ($734,000) for each appearance.

On Sunday, a Chinese news outlet reported that the two Korean actors receive about 850 million won for each appearance they make on television or at various events.

“(The company) has never disclosed (Kim’s fee) to the outside. The report is not based on (facts) verified by the company,” an official with Kim’s agency told Korean media.

 Lee’s agency, Starhaus Entertainment, also denied the report, saying that related issue had never been disclosed to a Chinese news organization.

“There is no exact standard for fees. Not only does Lee not appear at many events, but (Lee’s) schedule has never been set based on the payment,” a Starhaus official was quoted as saying by a local news outlet.

“It is true that unimaginably (high) fees are offered, but offers are accepted based on the quality of a particular event.”

K-pop boy band Big Bang will return to the music scene earlier than scheduled as the production of its new album is progressing well, local media reported Monday.

“Big Bang set a direction for the new album and the members are working round-the-clock,” said an official from its label YG Entertainment.

“Though the members are busy with overseas schedules, they are commuting to their office every day to focus on producing the upcoming album,” the official added.

The official said that it is likely Big Bang will complete the album earlier than planned and the quality is also much better than expected.

Big Bang leader G-Dragon hinted at its long-awaited comeback after a three-year hiatus in his interview last November.

“We are working on a new album. Our comeback has been delayed because we want to bring you good music, but we are not ready yet,” G-Dragon said.

“YG Entertainment is putting priority on Big Bang’s new album release. We understand that fans have been waiting for so long,” the official said.

Following the album release in 2012, Big Bang members have been pursuing activities individually and in subgroups, turning up trumps.

Its subunit GD X TAEYANG, composed of G-Dragon and Taeyang, topped local music charts and TV programs with its track “Good Boy” last December. Taeyang also dominated year-end music awards across Asia with his solo track “Eyes, Nose, Lips.”

S.M. Entertainment, one of South Korea's leading talent agencies, said Wednesday it has filed a damage suit with a Hong Kong court against Luhan, a Chinese estranged member of popular K-pop boy band EXO and Hong Kong filmmakers, for his "illegal" appearance in their films.

The 24-year-old singer ceased activities as an EXO member after he filed a lawsuit in Seoul to nullify his exclusive contract with S.M. in October.

He was accused of illegally appearing in Hong Kong films as his management contract with S.M. remains "effective" until the final court decision on the case, the company said.

The Hong Kong filmmakers are responsible for having him appear in their productions without seeking prior consent from his management company, it added.
The lawsuit lodged on Tuesday is the latest in a series of legal actions taken by the South Korean firm in response to the lawsuit filed by the singer.
Last week, the entertainment firm filed a similar suit with a Chinese court against Luhan and Chinese advertisers who they claimed illegally employed him in TV commercials.
"This legal action through a Hong Kong law firm is aimed to keep his illegal entertainment activities and breach of contract from hurting the rights and profits of S.M., EXO and other bona-fide victims," S.M. claimed in a release.
The company has said it will soon take similar legal action against Kris, another Chinese member who also filed a lawsuit to nullify his management contract with S.M.
Debuting in 2012, EXO rose to fame in South Korea and China after its first full-length album titled "XOXO (Kisses & Hugs)" was released a year later. Its repackaged version sold more than 1 million copies in 2013, making EXO the first group to go platinum in 12 years in the South Korean pop music industry.

Photos of girl group Apink making chocolates for fans were uploaded onto the group’s Facebook page on Tuesday.

In the series of pictures, the six members are clad in white chef uniforms and are learning how to melt and shape chocolates from a professional chocolatier.

In the same post, Apink’s agency A-Cube Entertainment said fans can get their hands on the homemade treats by liking the post describing the contest and writing why they want to win the chocolates on their own page, including the hashtag #Apink.

The winners will be unveiled on Thursday on Apink’s Facebook page.

Unlike other girl groups that specialize in provocative outfits and steamy dances, Apink, formed in 2011, sticks to its girl-next-door image.

After releasing two digital singles, “Mr. Chu” and “Luv,” last year, Apink topped numerous music charts and had its best year ever.

Apink is loved by their fans as a group, but individual members also have busy careers.

Yoon Bo-mi is starring in a spinoff version of the popular reality TV show “Real Men,” in which female celebrities experience what life would be like if they joined the military, while Kim Nam-joo was recently accepted into college.

The girl group will fly to Japan on Saturday and will stay there for about 10 days to meet their Japanese fans and promote their digital single “Mr. Chu.”
