MBC‘s ‘The Moon that Embraces the Sun‘ and KBS 2TV‘s ‘Dream High‘ actor Kim Soo Hyun commented on actresses Han Ga In and miss A‘s Suzy, who are now playing one role in the movie ‘Introduction to Architecture‘.
When asked to reveal how he felt after seeing the film, Kim Soo Hyun replied, “This is a movie about the memories and pains of a first love, but I thought it was a movie that could ‘recharge emotion’. Just like this, I feel like I have recharged my emotion, thanks to (Han) Ga In noona and Suzy.”
Kim Soo Hyun was then asked how he felt about Han Ga In and Suzy in ‘Introduction to Architecture’.
“Switching from a historical role to a modern role, I felt like Ga In noona looked luxurious. She looks classy. In the historical drama, she only wore shabby clothes. She must’ve been pained (laughter). The tone of her acting was different and I enjoyed watching her very much. Because of her, I was able to immerse myself into the movie.”
As predicted last week, BIGBANG and miss A were the two acts to watch as both their new singles made big strides up the K-Pop Hot 100 at the No. 1 and No. 2 spots, pushing four-week chart topper Lyn and her soundtrack single, “To Turn Back Hands of Time,” to No. 3.

On February 13, actors and staff members attended a press conference for the movie Introduction to Architecture in Seoul.
When Lee was asked when did he kiss for the first time in real life, he replied, “My first kiss? I gave my first kiss to Suzy. Even though it was in the movie, that was my first kiss in real life too.”
He added, “Of course I like Suzy the most among miss A members.”
After announcing a comeback for late February, miss A has finally revealed the concept images for their upcoming album.
Recently, miss A gave fans a sneak peek into their new music video by inviting select fans to the set. Immediately afterwards, they released a still-cut from the video to the general public. Now the ladies have followed up by unveiling several concept images that exhibit a softer, more feminine side.
For their photos, the members of miss A were wrapped in cream-colored bandages. It’s a dramatic outfit, but when paired with faint makeup and dark hair, the bold look becomes wistful and even a little fragile.
A representative from AQ Entertainment (a sub-label of JYP Entertainment) stated, “This album marks miss A’s mature transformation both musically and visually. We ask for your continued interest and love towards miss A’s new album and comeback.”
Images of miss A member Suzy receiving kisses from 2PM‘s Taecyeon and actor Kim Soohyun have surfaced online.
The above photos as well as a video were shared on an online community site with the the title, ‘Kim Soohyun & Ok Taecyeon giving Suzy kisses‘.
The video was footage from the ‘Dream High‘ season 1 poster photo shoot that took place last year, featuring the main characters Suzy, Taecyeon, and Soohyun, and was recently posted, drawing attention.
Suzy played the role of Go Hyemi, the girl that caused a love triangle between Song Sam Dong (Kim Soo Hyun) & Jin Gook (Taecyeon), and the photo shoot pictorial expressed their complicated relationship.
The interactive movie ‘Hello‘ starring 2PM and miss A has finally been revealed via Korea Tourism Organization‘s website, www.ibuzzkorea.com.
In the video, the viewer becomes the main character and goes on a vacation to Korea for three days with the idol stars. The video highlights some of Korea’s most beautiful landmarks and the OST “Hello” was created specifically for this project.

According to a recent report, there is estimated to be a total of 100 teams of boy and girl idol groups in the Korean mainstream music scene by the end of 2011. However, these groups are usually judged on the basis of popularity and their fans rather than by professionals. With that said, how would professionals rank the groups? 27 choreographers and dancers were asked to pick the groups with the best performances.
