Actor Lee Jong Suk reveals he’s mistaken as a flirt

Posted: 02 Mar 2013 06:29 AM PST

Two of the hottest actors at the moment, Lee Jong Suk and Joo Won, are apparently misunderstood “flirts.”

Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin shared how it was working with each other on the KBS 2TV drama ‘School 2013‘. The two co-stars also revealed their differences in taste when it comes to skinship.

Kim Woo Bin, who is close friends with Lee Jong Suk, shared, “Jong Suk has a lot of aegyo. Although I’m the type to have a lot of aegyo as well, I’m nothing compared to Jong Suk. Jong Suk is the first person I’ve seen who doesn’t act differently with male or female, young or old and naturally shows aegyo. He was born with it.”

Lee Jong Suk explained, “I grew up thinking that I was manly, but everyone kept saying that I had a lot of aegyo. That is why recently I admitted that I do have a lot of aegyo. I usually do a lot of skinship, so I like talking with people while holding their hands whether they’re a boy or a girl. If I’m with someone I’m comfortable with, I hug and pat them. Because of this, there are times when I get misunderstood. That is why Woo Bin told me that I’m a flirt. I realized that there are people who don’t like skinship. In Woo Bin’s case, he doesn’t like holding hands.”

Woo Bin suggested, “Meet up with Joo Won. He also has a lot of skinship and aegyo,” to which Lee Jong Suk responded, “So there is another person like me. It would be funny if I met up with him.”

Lee Jong Suk’s skinship with Kim Woo Bin both on and off screen was probably what led to their hilarious scandal.

Lee Hi hints at the next release, “It’s Over”!

Posted: 01 Mar 2013 11:21 PM PST

After the release of her intro track “Turn It Up” recently, Lee Hi is already hinting at her next release!

A new teaser has surfaced revealing the songstress going bold as she dons lashes made of musical notes and red lipstick, which she’s used to write the words “It’s Over” up at the top.

Is “It’s Over” a new song or the title of a mini album or a full album? No one knows! If you remember, the previous teasers showed the artist pondering over three different dates and three different types of releases, which left fans in confusion.

Seeing that the March 1st date and the "single" mentioned in the first two teasers have lined up with “Turn It Up”, we are left wondering if Lee Hi will be following the trend by releasing a mini on March 7th, and then an album on March 21st. If that prediction holds true, “It’s Over” may be a mini album being released on the 7th.

However, nothing is confirmed at this point, so stay tuned for updates and leave your guesses on what “It’s Over” might be!
