A video of Kim Tae Hee showing her affection for her nieces has attracted many netizens’ attention. The video was shot for a bed commercial in which Kim Tae Hee appears with her very pretty nieces. She covers them with a blanket and smiles brightly throughout.
Netizens commented: “Kim Tae Hee’s nieces are as pretty as she is.” “I thought she was just pretty, but she’s also kind.” “She is so considerate, like a mother.”
Actress Park Bo Young (22) assured her fans that the rumor of her romance with Song Joong Ki (27) is not true, saying “It can never happen.”
On November 23, all staff and production crew of the movie A Werewolf Boy gathered at a restaurant in Gwancheol-dong, Seoul to celebrate attracting over 5 million moviegoers. Song Joong Ki, Park Bo Young, Yoo Yeon Seok, and director Jo Seong Hee made appearance and honored the event.
Previously in October, Song created a stir as he surprised people with the remark, “Park Bo Young is mine” at the promotion of A Werewolf Boy held at the outdoor stage of BIFF Village in Busan.
Recalling the incident, a reporter asked Song, “People say that Song Joong Ki and Park Bo Young would make a good couple, and you guys do look good together. Don’t some fans recommend you to date?” Park replied, “I thought many fans would hate me of what Song had said, but I was grateful because some fans really liked it.
“In a recent promotion activity I’ve attended to, one fan excitedly shouted out, ‘I hope you two guys date!’ after watching the couple Cheo Soo and Soon Yi in the movie. I feel sorry to say this, but there isn’t even a slightest chance for us to date each other. It can never happen. I think it would be great if we appear as brother and sister rather than lovers in later works.”
The movie A Werewolf is about a dangerous werewolf (played by Song Joong Ki) who should not even exist in this world but falls in love with a lonely girl (played by Park Bo Young) who has closed her heart to the rest of the world. It is the first commercial film of the director Jo Seong Hee who worked on End of Animal, Nice Short, and Don’t Step out of the House. Actors Yoo Yeon Seok and Jang Young Nam participated as cast.

Actor Song Joong Ki recently expressed how sorry he felt for his late participation in the promotion of the movie A Werewolf Boy.
On November 23, the staff and production crew of the movie gathered at a restaurant in Gwancheol-dong, Seoul, to celebrate the success of their movie, which has attracted more than five million viewers. Song said that he felt terribly sorry for not being a part of the promotion from the beginning. His belated participation was due to an overlapping shooting schedule for the KBS 2 drama series The Innocent Man, which forced him to miss the very first promotional activity for the movie. The series ended recently, so Song is now focused on the movie promotion.
He said, “Rather than pursuing my own profit by doing such work as shooting commercials, I’ve decided to work more on promoting the movie. I know how hard it is to promote a film all by yourself, so I felt terribly sorry for having let Bo Young carry the ball alone. Though I’m not in such great shape physically right now, I discipline myself and transform into a new person just before I walk on the stage.”
In a previous press conference, the cast said that they would not make any promises publically in the hope of attracting people, but Song dropped a hint that the actors are planning to throw a guerrilla event. He said, “We promised each other not to go public with any promises related to the movie. We thought it would be better to surprise our audience. We’re actually planning on something special.” This has built up expectations about the upcoming surprise event.
As of November 22, A Werewolf Boy had attracted 5,464,835 moviegoers and keeps on setting new records day after day.

Actor Lee Min Ho candidly shared about his popularity in China.
In a recent photo session and interview with the magazine @star1, Lee said, “I’ve never expected to receive such great love in China.”
Recently, the star has become popular with the TV series Boys Over Flowers and City Hunter in China, and he now becomes known as the best Hallyu star.
Lee said, “So far, only romantic and comedy Korean TV series attracted attention abroad because they could easily make a bond of sympathy with people from other countries. But I’m quite surprised that the action-based TV series, City Hunter, could gain such popularity in China.”
About his further activities abroad, he said, “I don’t have any biased conceptions about shooting Korean or other foreign works. If certain work has good quality and there is a character I want to play, I think it’s already attractive in its own way. If the work has a good quality, it doesn’t matter which country makes it.”
The December issue of @star1 was released on November 21 and the copies were immediately sold out on the next day on the internet bookstores.
A representative of the magazine said, “Only a small portion of hard copies are available on the newsstand of some subway stations in Seoul and GS25 convenient stores for now. We’re considering of printing out some more.”
On the episode of SBS’s Go Show that aired on November 23, Lee quipped: “I’m very proud of my eyes. My eyes are so big that they look moist when I sing, which gives me perfect, emotional look for a ballad.”
Lee added: “I believe that ballad singers, particularly female ballad singers should have fragile, weak look. I have so thin ankles, which are perfect for fragile look. You need these kinds of thin ankles like mine, and you can make people think, ‘Oh, my. She looks so weak and fragile, and the song is really sad.’ That’s how you make people moved by your song.” Lee’s funny idea about singing sad ballads and moving audience made everyone laugh hard.
Lee also added: “I also have unique toe fingers. They are so long and thin that they look like fingers. It is also important to have thin, long toe fingers for a ballad singer, as that helps you express the emotion and sadness of a song.”

After the rumor of Tang Wei’s romance with Kim came out, some reporters reported that the rumor is not true, but it has recently been found out that they have actually been dating since 2011.
When Tang Wei and Kim were filming the movie Late Autumn in 2009, people didn’t know about their romance because they were busy shooting the film. They also didn’t know about it because Tang Wei and Kim started dating after they finished shooting the film. Even after the shooting finished, they have kept their friendship as a director and an actress.
A spokesperson for Kim recently said, “As they got closer, they started seeing each other more often.”
Only a few people have known about their romance, and the reason that they have kept it a secret is interesting. Part of the reason is that Tang Wei is a top celebrity, but they wanted to protect Kim’s privacy.
When Tang Wei purchased land near Bundang, they also kept it secret. The land Tang Wei purchased is not very far from the place Kim lives.
On November 23, the magazine Woman reported that Tang Wei and director Kim met each other in 2009 for the film Late Autumn and started dating this year.
