"There’s no accounting for Personal Taste"
October 14th, 2008 // by javabeans




And to think, we almost had Joo Ji-hoon (Devil) and Yoon Eun-hye (Coffee Prince) back together in Personal Taste [개인의 취향], playing a straight guy masquerading as a gay guy to live with a straight girl (who harbors a crush on her gay friend but thinks he’s playing for the other team).

Now, not only will these two not be appearing in the drama together, the entire drama production has fizzled.

The drama had been in the pre-production stages, but PD Kim Sang-ho (Fantasy Couple) explains that the reason for this project’s demise was due to a difficulty in casting. Yoon Eun-hye pulled out of the project while the scripts were being written and they were unable to recast. Furthermore, Joo Ji-hoon’s involvement in the project was greatly “exaggerated” by the press.

Bummer. The drama, which was to be based on the novel of the same name, sounded like farcical fun in the making. Maybe I’ll just have to read the book instead.

so sad...i was hoping for another drama from the two...very disapponting....but still hoping that YEH will reconsider...hehe...

Shinae & Son Ho Young in a “Love Scandal”
By ellie + October 16th, 2008




Alex’s Wifey, Shinae and King of fashion faux paus, Son Ho Young recently were featured together in a beauty pictorial for Korean magazine, CeCi. The theme was a sweet ‘Love Scandal’ and its supposed to give you a movie poster,”hey we’re lovers but there’s something else going on” kind of look.

ShinAe told the magazine that a guy’s skin is important and she likes a man who can dress up.

ShinAe, who always has no energy or charm on “We Got Married”, definitely looks like she could whip Son Ho Young into her little biatch with her fierce smoky eyed look. Son Ho Young, on the other hand, looks like a little biatch that should be whipped by a powerful woman. Seems like a match made in heaven.

The pictorial will be shown in the November Issue of Ceci Magazine.

"More news on Baek,"
Thursday October 16, 2008 Korea




After the devastating news on Choi Jin Shil’s death, people can’t stand looking or hearing about Baek. People have been searching and looking for Baek, but we finally found a picture of Baek (the picture above).

Her full name has also been giving and her full name is called Baek Seung Yun.

This heartless rumor spreader caused the death of Choi Jin Shil’s death. She made rumors on the internet and caused Choi Jin Shil to go overboard and hang herself.

The story is starting to reveal more than ever. More news is starting to come out, and police are trying hard to keep the stories in. The rumor started with Baek saying that Choi had gave four million dollars to Ahn Jae Hwan and expected a return of the money. Ahn Jae Hwan was unable to pay the money, causing Choi Jin Shil to hire gangsters to threaten Ahn Jae Hwan. After that, Ahn Jae Hwan had taken enough and killed himself.

Choi Jin Shil was also suffering the death of Ahn Jae Hwan. When she saw the rumors all over the internet, Baek knew Choi Jin Shil knew about the rumors so Baek finally found out about Choi Jin Shi’s cell phone and called her to apologize. This call caused Choi Jin Shil to go into more depression causing suicide.

"Jackie Chan Brings 'Heart' to Henan,"
Thursday October 16, 2008 China




Jackie Chan, who is as venerated in philanthropy as in show business, has turned his maiden visit to the central Chinese province of Henan into a highflying fundraiser.

The Hong Kong actor arrived in Xinxiang, a city in the northern part of Henan, on Tuesday to kick off his charity efforts in the province that are expected to last for days.

A fundraising auction for a local school was held shortly after Chan's arrival. A dozen items were put on for auction, which were all from Chan's personal collection and included a T-shirt he designed, and a CD of his Olympic songs.

Both enterprises and individuals were attracted to the event, which eventually raised 2.55 million yuan (US$373,314).

Chan will donate the proceeds to the Dragon's Heart children's center, a recently completed boarding school named after his youth-oriented charity project. The center provides education and rehabilitation facilities to mentally handicapped children.

During his stay, Chan also visited children at the center and spent time playing games with them.

Initiated in 2004, Chan's Dragon's Heart project has financed the building of 21 schools across China, according to its Web site.

"Koo Hye Seon Is Slated to Conquer Asia,"
Thursday October 16, 2008 Korea




She first rose to fame as one of the prettiest girls in cyberspace.

TV scouts soon came knocking, and Koo Hye Seon has since become one of the hottest new stars in Korea.

You may know her as the cute but bumbling protagonist in the family drama Hearts Of 19, which is showing on Channel U.

Hye Seon, 24, is also known in Korea for her period dramas King And I and Mighty Chil Woo.

Deemed a favourite with advertisers, she was ranked No 1 in a recent survey as the product spokesman who's most able to "arouse customer's appetite".

Next step? She is slated to conquer Asia by playing the female lead in the highly-anticipated Korean version of hugely popular Japanese manga-adapted idol drama Meteor Garden.

Hers is the coveted role popularised by Taiwan's Barbie Hsu and Japan's Mao Inoue feisty girl Tsukushi Makino, who boldly challenges four handsome bullies known as F4 and wins the heart of their hot-tempered leader Tsukasa Domyouji.

Filming will begin later this month.

More than just a pretty face, Hye Seon is also an award-winning artist who gave up her art studies for her TV career in 2005.

Fans have raved about the oil paintings and sketches she often posted on her personal homepage.

She also sings like a pro and has directed her own horror film about euthanasia.

She told Ceci magazine: "I have so many dreams in my mind.

Sometimes I feel like travelling with my paintbrush but I also hope to continue my work in showbiz. Whatever it is, I should devote all my energy to fulfilling my dreams."

"Japan No.1 Handsome Man"



Takizawa Hideaki topped a recent Japanese survey as the most handsome man in Japan, defeating Takuya Kimura who has for 11 times been selected as the no 1 handsome man in Japan.

It is said that Chinese action star Jacky Chan had met this 24 year old Japanese in Hollywood. Jacky Chan felt that Takizawa Hideaki has good dancing and kungfu skills.



Takizawa Hideaki (瀧澤秀明), nicknamed Tackey was nurtured as a star since 13. He made his fame when co-starring Nanako Matsushima in the controversial but popular tv drama “Majo no Jouken”, where he played as a high school student and fell in love with his teacher.

In 2002 Takizawa Hideaki together with Imai Tsubasa formed a duo group “Tackey & Tsubasa” and released their first album.

Tackey is rated as one of the most potential star of his generation in Japan and his popularity is ever growing across Asia.



Takuya Kimura (Kimura Takuya, 木村拓哉, nicknamed Kimutaku; born November 13, 1972) is a Japanese actor and singer, a member of the pop group SMAP.

He was voted the Favorite Guy by Japanese women's magazine "AnAn", and was also voted as the Best Jeanist. So far, he has been voted the favorite guy 12 times consecutively and will not be included from next year.

"Diether Ocampo Wants to Be A More Responsible Celebrity"



Currently starring in the hit drama Iisa Pa Lamang, matinee idol Diether Ocampo is enjoying his craft as an actor and as social entrepreneur all at the same time. “I’m so comfortable working with these people already. I’ve been working with them for so many years. So we’re very comfortable na. We’re having fun. At the same time, we’re still working hard. Work can sometimes get boring eh. But when you’re working with familiar faces, you know you’re just having fun. You just enjoy what you’re doing,” he explains.

After over 12 years in showbiz, Diether has branched out into other businesses as well. “The magazine in the US, Baby Couture, is doing very very well. Uno naman is the local magazine. I’ve also been doing a lot of photo shoots lately. I just did a cover shoot of Kristine (Hermosa) for Uno. ‘Pag wala akong masyadong ginagawa, I get into that,” he admits. Diether enjoys doing photography whenever he has time.

But showbiz wasn’t always the dream for Diether, who was part of the Star Circle Batch 2. “Before, I was too reluctant. I didn’t want to be in showbiz. I was a reluctant actor. I’m a very shy person. Back then, showbiz for me was not my cup of tea. But I don’t know, for some reason, I ended up being here. Which is a good thing because it made me realize so many things and learn so many things. It brought me to where I am now. I became more responsible. I became a social entrepreneur. I give back to charity,” he confides.

Aside from starting K.I.D.S foundation which helps underprivileged children, Diether is also a celebrity supporter of the international animal rights group PETA. “It’s not about celebrity influence, it’s just something I realized. I almost have everything. You know, I don’t need anything like this anymore. But the blessings just kept on coming. So I don’t mind the happiness and fulfillment, but I felt there must be something else also. You know, when I was a kid, I had a very hard struggling life. So I grew up with those kinds of kids. That’s why it made me realize its about time to pay back, to pay it forward, to share it with all the underprivileged Filipino children,” Diether explains. The former Hunks member shares his next project for his K.I.D.S foundation. “It will be a medical and dental mission in Benguet. So were going up again like last year. It’s another trek to remember. We used to do it once a year, but now were going to do it twice a year,” he happily shares.

The Iisa Pa Lamang heartthrob believes that there should be bigger causes out there for celebrities that are bigger than just having a very successful career. “That’s one thing a lot of celebrities should be aware of eh, that they’ve actually got the power to influence a lot of people which can actually help a whole lot of other people. So that’s the problem with our industry now, they tend to accept all the fame and fortune and then they’re stuck with that,” he stresses.

But when it comes to influencing other celebs to join his causes, Diether says that the realization is a purely individual thing. “You know what, it’s really all up to them. I can only do so much. I’m just happy I was able to realize it myself. It’s hard when you have to tell somebody what they should be doing if they don’t realize that they have to do it themselves. It’s really all up to them,” he concludes.

"Kahit Isang Saglit Stars Talk About Love in Chalk"



Currently starring in Primetime Bida’s truly international drama series Kahit Isang Saglit, Jericho Rosales and Malaysian actress Carmen Soo grace the cover of Chalk Magazine’s October issue. The two talk about getting to know each other on and off the set, and how they weathered nasty intrigues that supposedly led to Heart Evangelista’s sudden and very unexpected decision resulting in a very public breakup with her boyfriend of three years. “It’s like an island. There’s an island there, and then boom! All of a sudden, parang wala ng island. You’re scratching your head and asking yourself, ‘What happened?’” Echo reveals in the Chalk article.

Echo also recalls what he went through after hearing the news. “It was hard in the beginning, because of course I needed to talk to someone, and I especially needed to talk to the person—to Heart—but I was in Malaysia, working. So I was emailing and texting and calling, but after the big breakup, no contact. I couldn’t do anything. So in the morning I was crying, and in the evening, I was crying, but I had to go to the set,” Echo shares with Chalk. The actor-singer also had to apologize to his co-star for having her name dragged into the issue when tongues started wagging that she was the cause for Heart’s jealousy. “I had to go up to Carmen and say sorry. She told me that I didn’t need to apologize because it wasn’t my fault, but still, I’m involved and I was being polite. She said she understood and she handled it well,” he further adds in the article.

But despite all the real-life drama between them, Jericho obviously still has the best of intentions for his former sweetheart. “There’s not a single day that I don’t pray for Heart or protect her or tell people about how good a person she is. I had three wonderful years with her and that’s the amazing part. Its just hard that you have to let go,” he admits in Chalk.

"Korean Heartthrob Kim Hyun Joong,"
Thursday October 16, 2008 Korea




He is the leader and most popular member of Korean boy band SS501.

But in the upcoming Korean version of the manga-adapted drama Meteor Garden, heart-throb Kim Hyun Joong will play second fiddle for once.

He has been cast as Rui Hanazawa, the most brooding member of the F4 bullies to be played by Lee Min Ho (Tsukasa Domyouji), Kim Bum (Sojiro Nishikado) and Kim Joon (Akira Mimasaka).

Min Ho's hot-tempered character is the main male lead who falls for a feisty girl (Koo Hye Seon), but she is actually carrying a torch for Hyun Joong's character.

In real life, though, Hyun Joong, 22, is arguably the most famous of the F4 cast.

Debuting in 2005 as part of SS501 (pronounced double S 501), he has since embarked on solo acting projects (Nonstop 5, Can Love Be Re-feeled) and released a solo digital single titled Thank You.

Despite his pretty good looks, he is known to be a tough guy who doesn't mince his words.

Earlier this year, the 1.8m-tall Hyun Joong gritted his teeth and coped with a serious leg injury so as not to affect the band's jam-packed work schedule.

But his condition worsened, and when other members started to fall sick or get injured as well, there was talk of the band taking a hiatus.

Last week, it was announced that SS501 would continue as the three-member outfit Triple S instead.

Its management company, DSP Entertainment, said Hyun Joong and another member, Park Jung Min, would focus on acting instead.

On his future as an actor, Hyun Joong told fans during an online chat in April that he would like to try "funny and interesting roles".
