Boy group Super Junior will release a special edition album titled “This is Love” on Oct. 27. The album is an updated version of its seventh record, “Mamacita,” which was released in July.

The new mini-album will include three new tracks as well as 10 tracks from the previous work, including a newly arranged version of “Mamacita,” its title track.

The new record goes on sale on Oct. 27, but will already be available on Thursday at major music portals.

“Along with three new songs, a new music video will be shown to the public,” said a spokesperson from SM Entertainment, Super Junior’s agency.

This mini-album is the full Super Junior lineup’s first move after Sungmin, one of its members, announced Wednesday his plan to marry musical actress Kim Sa-eun.

The two got to know each other when they performed in the musical “Three Musketeers.” They will tie the knot in December.

After releasing the mini-album, Super Junior will participate in “SM Town Live World Tour” in Shanghai, China, on Nov. 18.

Korean Wave actor Jang Keun-suk has paid off the taxes he allegedly evaded, according to No Cut News, a local online news agency. But Tree J Company, Jang’s agency, released a statement yesterday correcting the news website.

“It is true that Jang was probed [by the national tax agency],” said the agency, “but he didn’t pay additional taxes at all.”

The news agency ran an exclusive story about Jang’s tax evasion yesterday and said the amount of taxes Jang hadn’t paid wasn’t that high and that the National Tax Service did not find evidence that he had intentionally avoided taxes.

The 27-year-old actor, who appeared in hit drama series “Pretty Man” (2013), is especially popular in Japan.

Meanwhile, the national tax agency found out that some other Korean entertainers working overseas evaded taxes, while investigating a man surnamed H who runs an entertainment agency that helps Korean entertainers advance into the Chinese show business.

Using multiple bank accounts with borrowed names, H turned out to be evading taxes. The Supreme Prosecutors’ Office discovered that he is affiliated with some celebrities who also evaded taxes.

The film "My Love My Bride" got off to a good start, attracting more than 600,000 viewers in just four days after its release last Thursday.

It is a remake of the 1990 romantic comedy directed by Lee Myung-se, starring Park Joong-hoon and the late actress Choi Jin-sil.

The new version stars Cho Jung-seok and Shin Min-a, who play the leading couple

The remake cleverly mixed the original's cartoon-like fun with today's changed views of relationships and marriage.

The husband, who was an employee at a publishing company in the original, is now a community service center official who dreams of becoming a poet, and the wife, who used to be a full-time homemaker, is now an instructor at an art academy.

Shin said the film was a challenge for her, and it seems to have paid off.

"I've usually played dreamy characters that don't seem to exist in reality, but now I'm over 30 and I really wanted to play a realistic, ordinary woman. So I decided to take the role as soon as I read the script," said Shin. "Still I was nervous and worried because the original was a very popular and memorable film. I tried my best and all the staff worked really hard. I am so happy that the movie is receiving good response."

Cho said the film has increased his interest in getting married.

"I hope people feel the aura that only couples have watching our film. They go through all odds together and still walk together holding hands," Cho said. "I want to get married even more after filming. I want a woman who has natural charm and is faithful."

Dayo Wong Tze Wah two nights ago performed the final show of his stand up comedy concert series. Fellow TVB Best Actor Wayne Lai Yiu Cheung, Best Actor Sean Lau Ching Wan and Michelle Reis (Lee Ka Yun) showed their support. Wong Tze Wah was in great form as the audience responded enthusiastically. Near the end of the show, Tze Wah did not just leave like in previous shows. He said to the audience of over 10,000, "Every night I leave right after the show, tonight is the final show, I want to say a few more things before I go. I am a little sentimental. I started doing stand up comedy in 1990, I performed on the 97 Hand Over, then came the financial storm. In 2003 SARS came, whenever there was big trouble I was involved. With SARS the entire venue only had one person who just kept working without a medical mask. The person without a mask was me, so you can tell how badly I needed the money? The entire venue laughed with their mouth covered, while I just talked and talked. Then came another financial storm, and actual storms came during the performance and I didn't get to perform. Yet this time, Occupy Central! It's my turn again."

Wong Tze Wah was hesitant to discuss Occupy Central. He said, "I very honestly tell everyone, from the first day of Occupy Central I watched the television and immediately thought, 'Hmmm, this time I probably can't do ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Jessica C. and Candy Yuen Ka Man yesterday promoted their film ZOMBIE FIGHT CLUB (SI SING) on the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui. The sexy JC felt that she was very clean and very feminine, she could be sexy and femininely dressed. She revealed that she has already seen the film earlier at the Macau premiere. "The more I watched the more I blushed and embarrassed I got. Because there were more nude scenes than I imagined, at the time I sunk lower and lower into my seat." Speaking of the male pedestrians' frequent shots of her chest, she said, "I am already used to it. Friends always said that she saw me on the streets. When I asked them what they saw, they said that they saw the bra I was wearing." Was she worried that someone may take advantage? She said that she has seen men harassing women on the streets. If she ran into this situation she definitely would yell at him with foul language.

Candy admitted that she was afraid of the crowd and said that she was not as brave as JC. She also said that she has been taken advantage of many times since childhood, mostly on her chest and her rear. She said, "Maybe because I don't have an assistant, they would suddenly rush over to attack. They would also stick to me like glue, but they are very fast. They would touch for two seconds and duck away, like it was a secret technique." Although sometimes she was taken advantage of, she felt that ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Wong Jing two days ago announced on Weibo that he has "terminated relationships" with Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Chapman To Man Chak and Denise Ho Wan Si over their political differences. To Man Chak yesterday morning wrote an almost 700 word post to say that Wong Jing had to keep FROM VEGAS TO MACAU 2 (DOH SING FUNG WON 2)'s Mainland box office next Lunar New Year in mind on facebook. He said, "Everyone please don't yell at Wong Jing anymore......FROM VEGAS TO MACAU last year made 600 million at the Mainland box office, which was Wong Jing's highest record in his entire film life! With the sequel, the budget drastically increased. My salary also increased by multiples. Yet before the production because I supported Taiwan against the Cross Strait Trade in Service Agreement, the film company abandoned me and we were not fated to work together again. Our relationship has not changed over that, because I believe, as friends, you have your reasons and cannot blindly support me. I understand. Even more importantly I believe that he has done his best. I can only thank you in silence!"

He continued, "Yet this time he in this trouble filled autumn not only can toss aside our years of friendship and without any private notice publicly announce the relationship termination, but also like a 'fat praying mantis' breaking its arms, even with a film in release in Hong Kong he still neglects Hong Kong people's feelings and says something extremely despicable. He may be suffering some gigantic pressure behind the scene." He pointed out ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Artist Bella Law Chi Kiu in Wong Jing's new film SIFU VS. VAMPIRE (TIN SI DAU GEUNG SI) had a daring performance. In the film she had bath scene. Law Chi Kiu said that when she got the script and learned about this sexy bath scene, at first she struggled with it a little. Luckily Wong Jing explained the angles and uses of the scene in detail. She too felt that the story required it so she let go and performed. She said, "This time was the sexiest in my career. Luckily the crew was very understanding. During the shoot they automatically cleared the set and left only female workers. (Philip) Ng Won Lung stood next to the tub, but I was in the water and haven't stood up yet." She said that during the shoot she already took all the cautions against wardrobe malfunction. She said, "I had pasties, so I wasn't afraid of any wardrobe malfunction."

Was the shoot embarrassing? She said, "No, because I had to make my feelings known to Ng Won Lung I had a lot of dialogue in the bathtub. I was completely focused on the performance and didn't think about anything else. If I had too many concerns, I believe I wouldn't be able to perform this scene well. (Was it the furthest you would go on screen?) For now no nudity for me." In comparison to "Jing Girl" Michelle Hu Yan, she was not as sexy as her. Bella said, "Actually it .....
