Behind-the-Scenes Footage of Sooyoung from ‘The 3rd Hospital’

Posted: 10 Oct 2012 08:52 AM PDT


tvN recently revealed a new picture of Sooyoung and her co-star Kim Seungwoo, who play the characters Lee Euijin and Kim Doohyun, respectively, from one of the scenes in "The 3rd Hospital". The network also released some behind-the-scenes clips from the filming.

In the video, Sooyoung's other co-star, Oh Jiho, who plays the character Kim Seunghyun, and Sooyoung are filming the scene where Lee Euijin pretends to be drunk and Kim Seunghyun has to carry her home. The always professional Sooyoung is also seen discussing the scene with the PD to act out her role even better.

The first take ended with an NG because Oh Jiho raised Sooyoung's legs too high. Sooyoung jokingly said she looked like a spider because of this and immediately brightened up the set with her laughter. The second take went well, but Sooyoung playfully complained that she kept slipping from Oh Jiho's back. As for the final question to Oh Jiho about Sooyoung's weight, he smartly answered that she was as light as a feather. The behind-the-scenes footage can be seen below.




"The 3rd Hospital" airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 11 PM KST on tvN.

Apology from Kyeongki-do National Para Games to JYJ’s Junsu and his fans

Posted: 10 Oct 2012 02:15 AM PDT


The National Para Games Group apologizes to JYJ's Junsu and his fans by posting on their website.

Junsu was supposed to perform as the finale stage of the 32nd National Para Games – Gyeonggi Province. But the unexpected problem occurred during Junsu's final performance and many fans were disappointed. Therefore, the chief officer of the National Para Games apologizes to the fans by posting the message below.

We deeply apologize.  
As the party in charge of the 32nd National Para Games opening ceremony on Oct 8, we sincerely apologize to everyone for not running the event smoothly, for the inconveniences caused by time delay, order maintenance and many other concerns.
In addition, we apologize once again to many people from all over the country who came here since early in the morning including Kim Junsu(XIA). 
We will thoughtfully reflect so that such incident will never occur again in the future.
Next, we are going to explain the matter related to JYJ Kim Junsu(XIA). 
Since the beginning, while putting our heart and soul in reviewing which singer would perform the last stage (finale) through live radio broadcast and other medias, we took into account many aspects such as popularity and reputation and decided to choose Kim Junsu (XIA) so we directly negotiated with his agency CJES and not long before the event, CJES agency difficultly decided on the final performance for this meaningful event of Para Games. 
During the negotiating process, we looked through many different plans which could brighten the meaning of this festival with JYJ Kim Junsu(XIA)'s agency. While deliberating, we discussed about the meaning and purpose of this opening ceremony and also sent them the agenda of the event and settled on the performance through mutual deliberation.
Furthermore, after finishing enough consultations about the ceremony program during the deliberating process, we received the music for his performance 2 days before the event and we worked on the lighting memory settings, VJ video through many aspects in order to enhance the quality of performance. The whole system for lighting, sound effects, camera etc was run until the finale stage. 
About the method of introducing Kim Junsu(XIA) on stage after concluding the live broadcast, we have mutually deliberated on the method and words in the introduction with his agency 2 days before the event. We have deliberated with them that after the closing ment for live radio broadcast, MC for the live broadcast Kim Changryul would stay on stage and introduce, even the timing to appear on stage were discussed before Kim Junsu(XIA) performed the finale stage. 
In addition, since there was not much time left before the event, the promotional materials were made accordingly to the performances what were confirmed at that point so we initially excluded his name on the promotional materials but later we quickly produced the promotional materials as well as banners etc. 
Also, after concluding the post-ceremony event, due to the departure of important guests, there were many empty seats left and we couldn't foresee that it would cause such chaotic situation so we apologize for causing inconveniences to people who came early.
About the security company, we have warned and asked the security company for the event to politely apologize to the representatives. 
Also, the scene where cameras were packed away that many spectators have seen was because the broadcast station in charge KBS decided to move their cameras after the official ceremony has ended (KBS only filmed the official ceremony).
We have filmed the entire celebration event and didn't leave out any single scene including Kim Junsu(XIA)'s performance. 
However, we apologize once again for not informing the entire situation in detail, and these matters can also be confirmed by CJES agency. 
We would like to thank CJES agency and Kim Junsu(XIA) who took interest and participated in Para Games despite of busy schedules. 
Anyway, as the main party in charge, we sincerely apologize to everyone participated in the event for the inconveniences we caused.
