It’s been belatedly revealed that actress Shin Se Kyung suffered an eye injury on the set of MBC‘s ‘When a Man Loves‘.
While filming on the 9th, Shin Se Kyung was hit in the eye by a wooden plank during a scene with Song Seung Hun and Yeo Woo Jin. Though emergency measures were taken, her eye began bleeding and a bruise formed around it, making it obvious that she needed to get treated at a hospital.
The actress told the staff she was okay and continued with the filming schedule, and it wasn’t until everything wrapped up on the 10th that she headed towards a hospital.
Her agency stated, “When the accident occurred, filming was delayed, and considering the drama’s schedule, Shin Se Kyung continued filming. Though there’s no big problem, she’s still suffering from the effects of her injury.” Namoo Actors also said that she would return to her drama filming after completing treatment.
Get well soon, Shin Se Kyung!

Comedian Jung Hyung Don would do anything for his children, including dropping 10 kg (~22 lbs.) in weight.
During a recent filming for JTBC‘s ‘Doctor’s Victory‘ when the topic of diets came up, Jung Hyung Don shared, “I recently lost 10kg through dieting,” revealing his remarkable achievement which viewers already took notice of.
Jung Hyung Don explained that it was important for him to lose weight as it isn’t just him who is affected by his health. “I was a heavy eater during that time and thus, I gained a lot of weight. But now that I am a father of twins, I have to think about my health. Through a rigorous diet, I am 10 kg lighter than I was before.”

On the May 11th broadcast of MBC‘s ‘Human Documentary‘, Shin Ji Hoon gave viewers a glimpse of her journey as a figure skater, which requires waking up at 6AM every morning to go practice at the skating rink. Although she began skating during her 6th year of elementary school, which is later than most child skaters, she learned quickly. Within just two years, she was able to win an award at national and international competitions.
Shin Ji Hoon shared, “While I skate, I feel good whenever I feel the wind.” Her coach added, “Because she has a lot of ambition, if she can’t do something, she gets stress and you can see it on her face.”
She also revealed the toll that filming ‘K-Pop Star 2′ had on her skating, “As I underwent dorm life, I wasn’t able to practice at all for two months. So when I suddenly returned to the rink and wasn’t able to do as much as I could do before, I put a lot of pressure on my knees. It started hurting a lot eventually.”
Shin Ji Hoon made it into the top 10 of ‘K-Pop Star 2′ and was labeled as a ‘musical genius’, grabbing the interest of all three judges.

It looks like one of the requirements to be cast in the upcoming drama ‘Dating Agency‘ was to be tall.
Well, of course it’s a coincidence, but when ‘Dating Agency’ released the profiles of their five main characters, excited fans noticed that all of them were as tall as models. Actor Lee Chun Hee, a former model, is 186 cm (~6’1″), Lee Jong Hyuk is 184 cm (~6.3′), Jo Yoon Woo is listed at 183 cm (~6′), and Hong Jong Hyun is 182 cm (~5’11″). And it’s not just the guys! Girls’ Generation‘s Sooyoung also boasts a tall height of 170 cm (~5’7″).
Lee Jong Hyuk plays Byung Hoon, a 'genius director who is the Sherlock Holmes of the dating agency business'. Sooyoung plays Min Young, an 'agent who specializes in broken hearts and is full of emotions'. Lee Chun Hee plays Seung Pyo, a 'mystery master chef who runs the restaurant near the theater'. Hong Jong Hyun plays Moo Jin, the 'chic & dark engineer of the dating agency'. Jo Yoon Woo plays Ah Rang, the 'bright energizer maknae who is a master at part-time jobs'.
The drama will start airing on tvN on May 27!

On the May 9th broadcast of SBS Power FM‘s ‘Cultwo Show‘, SECRET and JK Kim Dong Wook featured as guests.
The MCs recalled how they spotted SECRET eating not too long ago and shared, “A few days ago, I saw SECRET eating meat. They don’t look like they would, but they ate a lot.” When they asked who the ‘food fighter’ of the group is, all of the members pointed to Ji Eun.
Ji Eun laughed as she revealed, “I kind of fight with food.” The MCs gave their two cents on how she could eat a lot and have a toned figure, commenting, “I think you’re the type who eats a lot but doesn’t gain weight easily.” The SECRET member explained that wasn’t the case for her, sharing, “Because I gain weight, I limit my food portions during promotions. I normally love snacks, so I even made my members gain weight,” revealing how her fight with food led her members to fight their weight as well.
Fans can continue to watch SECRET say “YooHoo” on music programs this weekend!

Who knew the actor would be so shy?

The competition became more intense on the May 10th episode when Kangta’s team, consisting of Kim Woo Hyun, Lee Jung Suk, and Jang Jun Su, faced off for the one ticket available to move onto the live broadcast competition.
Although all three of Kangta’s singers received good reviews from the judges with their impressive stages, Kangta was only able to choose one and hesitantly called out the name, “Lee Jung Suk.” He then went on stage to comfort the other contestants and suddenly broke down in tears.
Kim Jin Pyo responded in shock, “This is really my first time seeing coach Kangta unable to control his emotions like this.”
Kangta revealed the reason for his tears, sharing, “I shared eye contact with the two friends who lost and I just felt so sorry. Those two worked harder than anyone else. I grew attached to them, and I began to cry at the thought of having to leave them.”

He excitedly congratulated them saying, “I had no idea. I was so surprised. I congratulate her so much. She must be happy. When they marry, they’ll live very happily. Han Hye Jin is very kind and Ki Sung Yong is also a very good person. I hope they have a good life.”
As mentioned previously, Han Hye Jin and Ki Sung Yong began their relationship in January of this year, and confirmed dating rumors in March. Although it's been only 4 months into their relationship, with their love and respect for one another, the two decided on the next step of getting married.

While Taecyeon responded “Yes”, Gui Gui had blurted out “No”.
