Singer Yoon Do-hyun recently announced his intention to step down as the host of “Love Letter with Yoon Do-hyun,” a popular live music and talk show on KBS 2TV, as well as his FM radio show “Yoon Do-hyun’s Music Show.”

Kim Young-jun, the president of Yoon’s management agency, said Yoon decided to focus his career on his upcoming eighth album as well as a nationwide tour that is scheduled for the end of the year. Kim also said Yoon needs time off from both shows as he is planning to launch a U.S. tour starting in March next year. Under the decision, Yoon will take part in the final pre-recording of the TV show at the end of November.

Yoon, who has been hosting the popular TV show since April 2002, says he was sad to leave and thanked his fans for their constant love and support over the years. Meanwhile, singer Lee Seung-hwan has taken over Yoon’s radio show since early October.

Lee Joon Ki to Play a Violent Man in New Drama

Amidst the current dispute with Mentor Entertainment, Lee Joon Ki is poised to take on a new drama, playing as a violent man. He will be working with star writer Song Ji Na who also wrote “Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi”.

The drama currently titled “The Story of Men“, talks about how a man causes the collapse of a huge multinational corporation. Writer Song Ji Na had mentioned briefly about the plot of “The Story of Men” on her blog after she finished “Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi”. She said: “I have always wanted to write a story about a violent man. And I now wish to make them the focus of my story.”

Lee Joon Ki will play as someone who actively seeks redress for his father but fails in the end which then causes him to be sentenced to imprisonment. According to a related personnel: “Song Ji Na has already chosen Lee Joon Ki right from the start. Although the contract has not been signed yet but we can basically confirm Lee Joon Ki’s participation in this project.”

Well no matter how excited you are, just wait for further confirmation. Things are definitely prone to changes, especially with Lee Joon Ki’s ongoing dispute with his agency.

Viewers Thrilled By Kiss Scene in “The World They Live In”

Yesterday marks the debut of MBC’s “The World They Live In“, a highly anticipated drama on television drama production casting Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin. And in this premiere episode, there was already a kiss scene between the two leads that left viewers thrilled, creating a buzz on the internet after the broadcast.

Jung Ji Oh (Hyun Bin) and Joo Joon Young (Song Hye Kyo) are both directors of a television station, with Ji Oh a senior while Joon Young is the newcomer but with a desire to achieve perfection in filming. They were previously lovers for 6 months but broke up in the end. A flashback scene was shown in the midst of argument between Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin. The flashback shows Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin sitting side-by-side at a busstop waiting for the bus to arrive. Hyun Bin turns around after Song Hye Kyo gave a tap on his shoulder. However little did he expect that Song Hye Kyo then inches forward to give him a peck on his lips.

After the broadcast, netizens flooded the official forum and left comments like “Song Hye Kyo is too charming, especially after she did that ’sneak attack’ to Hyun Bin”, “The shocked expression on Hyun Bin after the kiss is extremely cute”, “They are very compatible”, etc.

I have watched the first episode yesterday as well. Its a nice, lighthearted drama as opposed to other two supposedly dark themed “East of Eden” and “Tazza“, but it wasn’t quite what I had expected though. I find the first episode relatively uninteresting except for the interactions between Song Hye Kyo and Hyun Bin. Though they tried to show the intensity of a drama production but I just couldn’t feel it. This is just the first episode though, I pretty sure it will get better and am awaiting the chemistry between the two leads. At this point of time, it is 3 more hours to the broadcast of the second episode!
