Posted: 12 Mar 2012 07:14 AM PDT

 

Behind every kiss scene there is a story, and recently viewers were given a glimpse into Han Ga In and Kim Soo Hyun‘s awkward kiss scene.

On the March 11th broadcast of MBC‘s ‘Section TV Entertainment News‘, the behind the scenes footage of Han Ga In and Kim Soo Hyun’s kiss scene was revealed.

As the two stars prepared to film the scene for popular drama “The Moon that Embraces the Sun“, they could barely hide their embarrassment. Han Ga In was reduced to pinching her thighs to keep herself from laughing while Kim Soo Hyun kept up a sheepish giggle.

The kiss scene was originally supposed to involve a light kiss but as the director began to ask for a deeper kiss, the embarrassment of the two stars continued to mount. Ultimately the scene took three retakes to shoot, and once it was over, Han Ga In drew laughs on set by exclaiming, “Whew. I thought I was going to die!

Jo Sung Mo reveals the reason why he became a ‘cry baby’

Posted: 12 Mar 2012 06:53 AM PDT

 

Veteran singer Jo Sung Mo has opened up about his deceased brother for the first time in 14 years.

On March 13th, Jo Sung Mo guested on jTBC‘s Park Kyung Lim‘s “Oh! Happy Day” explaining, “From my debut single ‘To Heaven‘ and to ‘Do You Know?‘, my songs unusually had a lot of lyrics regarding the deceased“.

The singer added, “At the time, I would cry so frequently whenever I would sing or win an award so people thought of me as being strange“. It has been revealed that the reason for Jo Sung Mo’s frequent tears was due to the death of his older brother. While Jo Sung Mo was preparing for his debut, his older brother, who suffered from autism, went missing. However, at the time, his family kept it a secret from him because they did not want to shock or worry him.

Jo Sung Mo continued to explain through his tears, “One day, my brother came to me in my dream, and I realized this was his visit to me before he died. After I woke up from my dream I called my parents and that is when they told me that my brother went missing a few days ago and had passed away from a hit and run accident. This is why whenever I sang “To Heaven”, I would think of my brother and cry. But thanks to this song, I feel like my brother is always in my heart, so it makes me happy“.

During this recording, Jo Sung Mo showed an impromptu performance of “To Heaven”, but had to stop at one point due to his tears. While watching him, the cast, crew, and fans could not hold back their emotions either and the whole studio became a sea of tears.

Viewers will be able to watch this broadcast on March 13th, for now check out the music video that took Korea by storm, ‘To Heaven’.

Trend Alert: Go “low-cut” for this Spring’s look

Posted: 12 Mar 2012 04:59 AM PDT

 

Spring is just around the corner, and we’re on the lookout for the latest star fashion trends. This spring, stars are combining ‘sexy’ and ‘classic’ by bringing it low… with their hemlines!

Fill your wardrobe with the rising spring essential: the long, A-line spring dress!

Girl’s Generation‘s Yoona, Jessica, Sooyoung, f(x)‘s Sulli, Lee Hyori, Kim Min Hee, Gong Hyo-Jin, Lee Na-Young, IU, Park Shin-Hye, and Moon Chae-Won have all already been spotted in this upcoming trend, capturing the scent of spring in A-line silhouettes that hit at or below the knees. Forget the miniskirts, tights, and low-cut tops! These stars prove to ladies everywhere that women can still be sexy and fashionable without revealing too much skin.

What we love about this look is that it’s any fashionista’s simple (and inexpensive!) seasonal transition, reminiscent of the ’60s and tea parties with a modern, hipster vibe. For the busy gal, an A-line dress is quick and clean, perfect for those mornings when you’re running out in flip-flops. For the working girl, it’s the comfy, day-to-night piece that can be accessorized for the office and dressed down for everyday wear. For the tall girls, accentuate your long legs! For the petite who worry about drowning in longer dresses, no need to worry! A-lines are tapered high at the waist to give the illusion of length. Even Lee Hyori, who’s often mocked in variety shows for being ‘long-torsoed’, pulls off this trend!

 

Here is our take on this look:

Here is how the celebs pulled it off:

20120211_gonghyojin_alinedress 20120211_moonchaewon_dress 20120211_iu_springdress2 20120211_leehyoridress2 20120211_leehyori_dress 20120211_sulli_longdress 20120211_sooyoung_dress 20120211_parkshinhye_longdress 20120211_leenayoung_dress 20120211_kimminhee_longdress 20120211_snsd_burberry 20120211_snsdjessica_longskirt 20120211_iu_springdress 20120211_trendalert_springdress

 

Tell us what you think! Who pulled off this trend the best? Will you be lowering your dress hemlines, or do you think it’s a frocky look that belongs in the past?
