Korea Buzz – Who is Lee Seung Gi’s “Nine-Tailed Fox” Girlfriend?

(Translated from OSEN) The topic to singer and actor Lee Seung Gi’s “nine-tailed fox” girlfriend role is accumulating full interest.

Though it is happy that Lee Seung Gi has been early confirmed as the male lead for SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama “My GirlFriend is Nine-Tailed Fox” which is going to be broadcasted in coming August, the situation for the female lead is “still in the state of hard work”.

On May 13 afternoon, during an interview with OSEN, the drama production Origin Factory’s representative Moon Suk Hwan said, “Though there are a few actress which are being named out and interest is gathering on them, up till now there is no confirmed actress.” “We have targeted the drama to be broadcasted in August, if it is fast, the decision of female lead will be finalised within next week.”

On the talk that Jeon Ji Hyun, Shin Se Kyung and 2NE1’s Sandara Park are widely speculated, Representative Moon Suk Hwan said on the unfixed situation, “On the case of Jeon Ji Hyun, though her name came out in the early phase, she won’t be filming ultimately.” “Shin Se Kyung is one of the actresses which we are currently discussing on.” “Currently, other than Shin Se Kyung, we have been in contact with some actresses as well.”

After that, Representative Moon said, “On the case of Sandara Park, we did not even have a discussion on her for once.” “And on the spread on her being the popular favor for the female lead is just a smoke screen.” “The truth to Sandara Park filming is groundless.”

“My GirlFriend is Nine-Tailed Fox” will broadcast after “Bad Guy” which airs after “Prosecutor Princess” completed.

Korea Buzz – Who do You Want as Your Roommate? SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong


(Translated from 맥스무비) Just like Son Ye Jin and Lee Min Ho in MBC drama “Personal Taste”, if you can live with a roommate, which entertainer do you wish to live with?

Music site Monkey3 has conducted the survey from April 23 to April 29 with their 1217 members and SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong has been selected with almost 40% of votes from 483 members.

The members who chose Kim Hyun Joong gave their reasons as, “With his fun humor, he can give a bright atmosphere.” “When you have troubles and need consultation, he can give out amazing solutions with his unique fantastic sense.”

At the 2nd place with 269 votes (22%) is former 2PM’s member Park Jae Bum who is going to film movie “Hype Nation”.

After that, at the 3rd place is Shin Se Kyung (142 votes, 12%) who obtained high popularity due to sitcom “High Kick Through the Roof” and at the 4th place is 2NE1’s Sandara Park (131 votes, 11%).

At the 5th place is KBS 2TV “Cinderella Sister” Chun Jung Myeong (112 votes, 9%) and 6th place is After School’s Uee (80 votes, 7%).

Korea Buzz – Who is Going To Be Lee Seung Gi’s Partner at “My GirlFriend is Nine-Tailed Fox”? “It is Not Sandara Park or Shin Se Kyung”

(Translated from OSEN) The topic on who will be the female lead for SBS drama “My Girlfriend is Nine-Tailed Fox” (Scriptwriters: Hong Jung Eun & Hong Mi Ran, Production company: Origin Factory “본팩토리”), who will work along together with the male lead, Lee Seung Gi, is getting heated concerns.

The rep of production company, Origin Factory, Moon Suk Hwan said, ” We are still in the midst of looking for an actress who will act alongside with the male lead Lee Seung Gi.” “The discussions on the actresses circulating around are just rumours and we have already been keeping in contact with a top actress.” “It will be concluded sooner or later.”

In particular, on the filming news coming out that 2NE1’s member Sandara Park and Shin Se Kyung are widely discussed as the female lead, he emphasis again saying, “We do not have any thoughts on deciding of any of them.”

“My Girlfriend is Nine-Tailed Fox” is scheduled to broadcast as Wednesday-Thursday drama around end of August. It will take over drama “I am Legend” who will air after “Prosceutor Princess” ends.
