#Kim Hyun Joong
Finally this day has come. Now is the time to give it all in for the preparations done during this period.
As compared to the exam result, must ask yourself if you are satisfied with such outcome, please don't forget this important truth. After the exams, to enter which University, how to begin the studies, definitely cannot forget your initial dreams.
After becoming a University student and felt that everything has ended, this kind of thinking is not good. Should do your best in everything. Don't wish that everyone will become a grouchy undergrad.
Weather is very cold during the exam period, do remember to put on warm clothings and jacket when you go for the exams. Candidates, Fighting!
Kissers, I know you cant get enough of YTKISS's Behind The Scenes. And yeah, I know you noticed our dear So Min was singing something at the end right?
The title is I LOVE YOU or Noreul Saranghae by Han Dong Joon. The first time I heard of it was at Lee Dong Gun's and Han Jo Hye's Sweet 18 series, and especially on COFFEE PRINCE. If you are a fan of that series, you'll know why I love this song so much! It is definitely one of the sweetest Korean songs ever!!
Here is the song!!
Sweet isnt it? Wonder why So Min sings this song a lot on the BTS??!!

Oh Hani and Baek Seung Jo fictitional characters of Playful Kiss , you have given us much pleasure ,much love and memorable moments to remember . Both of you allowed us to have glimpses of your young and carefree days as well as your early married life. This tribute is given to you that you may know how much you were appreciated and loved in return .
HANI , we will always remember you as the cheerful wife making life’s common tasks fun to do. You may whine, you may cry but at the end you still get what your heart desires .
We also like that you dress nicely and most of the time matched those of your husband .
Your husband likes to tease you because you are always adorable when you pout like a child .
You are the human face of perseverance because you succeed when others must have long ago given up.
You tried running with him in life’s many obstacle courses and when you fell down, you knew he was there to hold you up ,to build your strength so you could run again with him .
And most of all, you have given him all your love, unconditionally .
SEUNGJO, we have always known that behind that exterior of rationality ,logic and sometimes cold, uncaring demeanor lies the true love ,sweetness ,understanding you never ran out of when it comes to Hani .
You have given your wife the highest accolade when you realized she has inspired you and made your life complete .
You are such a feast in our eyes like a fashion royalty crowned many times over .You are handsome and fabulous in your suits and fall jackets. Even in your matching pajamas with Hani you still went to bed in style.
You tease Hani but your smiles only tell us you hopelessly have enshrined your wife at the altar of your heart .
You are always there at the end of the day to wipe away her tears and give her your reassuring hugs.
Most of all, you gave your Hani the best KISSES that she has ever known and will ever know (and we are jealous, very jealous for that).
I was actually surprised to see it on Yahoo Philippines... Thanks Guest for the link!!

It is no secret that “Naughty Kiss,” a Korean remake of the hit Japanese manga “Itazura na Kiss” starring Hallyu star Kim Hyun Joong, ended its MBC television run with very dismal ratings of 4.9%. It is quite a feat, therefore, that the drama was recently featured in CNN’s “Talk Asia” with Anna Cohen.
According to the CNN report, Group Eight, the company that produced “Naughty Kiss,” also known as “Playful Kiss” or “Mischievous Kiss,” knew its target audience. Despite its poor television ratings, “Naughty Kiss” boasted of a huge online following, with fans from outside Korea following the series via video streaming websites. With international fans and the younger set preferring to use the Internet for entertainment, Group Eight struck a deal with YouTube to show an extra seven web episodes of “Naughty Kiss” after its television run. As of the date of the airing of Ms. Cohen’s report, the five web episodes have registered a cumulative total of 3.5 million views.
Asked about the impact of this deal on his career, the grateful yet surprised Kim Hyun Joong said, “Through YouTube, many people in Europe, the US and other countries that I have never expected have watched Playful Kiss. I am hoping that after getting to know me, they will keep interest in what I do in the future as well.”
With this amazing turnaround in the “Naughty Kiss” success story, it is clear that media networks must seriously look at the power of the Internet as a platform for distribution and revenue generation.
After the success of Boys Over Flowers, Kim Hyun Joong stars in another anticipated live-action comic adaptation in 2010, the MBC drama Playful Kiss (a.k.a. Mischievous Kiss). Tada Kaoru's popular manga Itazura na Kiss has previously been adapted for television in Japan and Taiwan (It Started with a Kiss). This new remake from the director of Palace offers a cute and fresh take on the mishap-filled romance between a clumsy, love-struck schoolgirl and an arrogant, apathetic perfectionist. Adorable, up-and-coming actress Jung So Min from Bad Guy stars as the heroine opposite Kim Hyun Joong, while Lee Tae Sung (Terroir) plays the goofy admirer. In addition to its television run, Playful Kiss introduced a new precedent for Korean dramas by continuing the series on YouTube after the TV finale.
Bumbling high school student Ha Ni (Jung So Min) is head over heels in love with her school's top student, cold and handsome genius Seung Jo (Kim Hyun Joong). She gathers up the courage to confess her love through a letter, but he not only flatly rejects her, he embarrasses her in front of the whole school: he doesn't like dumb girls. As if that wasn't enough, an earthquake levels Ha Ni's house, leaving her homeless. She and her family end up moving in with her father's friend - who is none other than Seung Jo's father! All kinds of romantic sparks and misadventures await now that Ha Ni is living under the same roof as Seung Jo!
This edition includes making of, poster shoot, character intro, and photo gallery.
Fashion magazine [Elle Girl] has revealed its interview and pictorial shoots with Jung Somin through its Elle Magazine at (www.atzine.com).
Though she has been portraying the image of a cute and lovable girl most of the time, she managed to strike a natural yet charismatic look, hence flaunting the charms of an actress. Arrogant looking without any trace of a single smile on her face as she stares straight into the camera, and yet still exerting a feely-feely with her expressions.
During the interview that was held after the shooting, indeed, she did not fail to show her confident beliefs and self-thoughts. She who has just completed shooting for the special youtube edition for drama [Playful Kiss] recently confessed honestly that she "just returned from a holiday to Jung Dong Jin (the Eastern Coastals) so as to placate her somewhat complexed feelings in the heart".(after shooting)
With regards to how she feels about beating out many other female actresses to claim the role of Oh Hani, she feels, "It was a challenge for myself indeed", as she tells on seriously. She also added on that "Oh Hani is actually a very different character from the real me", "Though many others see and compare the both of us to be very similar, it was a role that I wasn't able to handle it well to an extent".
"Exactly because we are so different, I henceforth felt that Hani has influenced me alot alot throughout this entire period as I was loving Hani".
She also felt that 2010 has been an extremely meaningful year for her as she has only debuted as a newbie and yet already having starred in two works, "I don't really know whether people see me as a success or a failure, but I already possess two experiences in this wide battle-field where I'm standing in; there are really so much I've gotten. I feel like I am now able to challenge anything at all, already".
You can view this pictorial shoot in the December issue of [Elle Girl] through the newly revamped Elle Magazine at www.atzine.com. You are also able to view it via the smartphone application of Elle Atzine.
