And this is how you start off a weekend, ladies and gentlemen. Err… fangirls and fanboys.

  • Photos of upcoming SBS drama “Secret Garden” co-stars Hyun Bin and Ha Ji-won in a public park lip-lock on set of the drama’s filming on Jeju Island¬†are getting everyone excited for the show’s premiere on the 13th. Apparently, it took 20 takes for the two to get the kiss “right”. Uh-huh, riiiight Mr. Director. (I, for one, will be watching the two sexy stars’ comedic antics in this body switching drama!) (OSEN)
  • In other Hyun Bin-related news, with all this time spent working apart, how are things going with him and his drop-dead-gorgeous GF, Song Hye-kyo?!! Looks like they’re still going strong. (Darn it! JK. I’m not a deluded SHINee fangirl.) (SportsSeoul)


  • Looks like JYP‘s boys, 2AM and 2PM are reaaaaaaalllly into working out. They are working out so hard, in fact, that they even have time in between reps to take photos at the gym. To monitor their conditioning, of course! (Not that I’m complaining– look at those guns!!) (DailyKpopNews)
  • Speaking of Kpopstars-cum-athletes, Kangta, wielded the torch for a leg of the Guangzhou Asian Games torch relay! Word is, when he rests up after his dash he’ll be working on a new album!¬†(SportsSeoul)
  • Also in Kpop news, boy band Supernova has released the MV for their Japanese single, “Shining Star”. All I can say is that the MV certainly has a Japanese aesthetic to it, and that the song is pretty catchy. I still prefer them in their “Time to Love”/”TTL” days with T-ara, though.

  • And last, but most definitely not least, actor Gong Yoo was adorable at the press conference for his new movie (and first project after serving his time in the military) “First Love” aka “Finding Kim Jong-wook”. We heart you right back you cutie, Yoo! (Newsen)

Happy Friday everyone!
