Shin Dong-wook joins Pick the Stars

Finally, Shin Dong-wook returns in another drama role. He’s just been tapped to join the SBS weekend series Pick the Stars [별을 따다줘], which has already cast leads Kim Ji-hoon as a rich lawyer and Choi Jung-won as a woman who has to fend for herself after her parents die.
It’s been a long while since he was on television: I loved him in 2006’s Soulmate and was eager to see him keep working, but after 2006’s Cloud Stairs and 2007’s War of Money, he hasn’t been very active, aside from hosting cable variety program Tracking Your Ex-boyfriend.
In Pick the Stars, Shin Dong-wook will play Kim Ji-hoon’s brother as a man with painful memories of his youth. He’s described as “warm and perfect, but also with a timid and innocent side to his character.” That’ll contrast pretty strongly with the smooth player he played in Soulmate and the private loan shark he portrayed in War of Money, as well as Kim Ji-hoon’s character, who is described as a cold man who doesn’t believe in love.

“Hot Shot” will Air in Japan

GTV’s “Hot Shot” is an idol drama directed by Lin He Long, known as the “Fast Director,” and casted with Show Luo, Jerry Yan, and Wu Zun. It talks about two very important basketball players’ stories on the basketball court. The Thunders and the Ones are long term competitors. The important players in the Thunders, Dong Fang Xiang (Jerry Yan) and Yuan Da Ying (Show Luo) have their own skills and abilities. As for Wu Ji Zun (Wu Zun) in the Ones, he is the killer.

The airing last year in Taiwan brought up a trend; now this trend is going over to Japan.

This idol drama will definitely have a Japanese version as it will be aired in Japan. Though because the drama is so popular, who does the voice-overs is an important point everyone focuses on. The popular Katsuyuki Konishi, Granrodeo, and Daisuke Namikawa will play the voice-overs for the three main characters of the drama. “Hot Shot” will again become big in Japan.

Yunho and Ara on MBC’s Section TV

20090821_tvxqyunho_572 (1)

TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki’s front man Yunho and Go Ara were featured on a segment for MBC’s Section TV. The segment showed some scenes from their upcoming drama “Heading to the Ground,” and had some brief words by Yunho. The two were later joined by fellow cast mates Lee Yoon Ji, Lee Sang Yun for a longer interview. 

When Yunho was asked to give a message to Cassiopeia, Lee Sang Yun butted in with his gestures and interrupted preventing Yunho from giving a message. From the looks of it, it seems like Yunho has lost a lot of weight. Hopefully the issues with SM Entertainment for his fellow Dong Bang members coupled with doing the drama isn’t putting too much stress on him.
