      Kim Hee Ae and Yoo Ah In heated up the screen with their illicit romance in Secret Love Affair

      As awkward as it was for a happily married woman to tell her husband that she is watching a drama called “Secret Love Affair,” it’s no secret that this drama was one of my favorites from 2014 and possibly all-time. The story follows Oh Hye Won (played by Kim Hee Ae), a woman in her 40s, who falls in love with Lee Seon Jae (played by Yoo Ah In), a piano prodigy in his 20s who is being mentored by her husband. But the fact that the screenwriter and director (Jung Sung Joo and Ahn Pan Seok), as well as Kim Hee Ae, won big at the 50th Baeksang Arts Awards and the 3rd APAN Star Awards proves that I wasn’t the only one to think that this was one of the best nuanced, incredibly well-written and well-acted dramas.

      If you’re like me and have felt that nothing else quite like it has been as worthy of watching lately, we’re in luck! The same writer-director team from “Secret Love Affair” has just come out with a new drama, “Heard It Through the Grapevine,” which just launched on February 23!

      The posters for ‘Heard It Through the Grapevine’ (like above) have the same style/feel to Secret Love Affair

      If the first two episodes of “Heard It Through the Grapevine” is a good indicator of the mood for this new drama, we are in for a treat! The drama is about a high school boy, Han In Sang (played by Lee Joon), who is under tremendous pressure from his politically connected, affluent parents to do well in school and succeed. But after making a “mistake” with his girlfriend, Seo Bom (played by Go Ah Sung), In Sang’s parents must try to figure out how to keep his bright future intact while trying to keep the family secret from getting out!

      But unlike “Secret Love Affair,” where much of the intimacy between the older Kim Hee Ae and younger Yoo Ah In was off-camera, the hot make-out scenes between Lee Joon and Go Ah Sung in “Heard It Through the Grapevine” are very much on-screen and could teach a thing or two to other dramas of the “shocked, open-eyed, closed-mouthed kiss” variety. The young actors have great chemistry and aren’t afraid to show it — making their story line of getting carried away much more believable.

      The hot make-out scene that went too far in Heard It Through the Grapevine

       Like “Secret Love Affair,” the cast of “Heard It Through the Grapevine” is top-notch. Although the drama deals with serious topics, the writing and acting are so good that you can’t help laugh or smile at unexpected moments as humor is expertly infused in the storyline. When In Sang first learns that Bom is pregnant with his baby the week before her due date, he swears to her parents that he will take responsibility and immediately takes her to meet his parents. That first-meeting scene at the beginning of Episode 2 is one of the most jaw-dropping, unexpectedly funny scenes you will ever see!

      The parents (played by Yoo Ho Jung and Yoo Jun Sang) can’t believe what they are about to witness!

      Be sure to favorite this great new drama and watch what is already looking like one of the best new dramas of the year! Let us know what you think of it after you see the first two episodes!

      Welcome to Viki’s new sage — “Halmoni”! As you will learn, Halmoni is a no-nonsense straight shooter who tells it like it is. If you’re in need of practical life and love advice, served with a side of delicious homemade kimchi, you’re in the right place. Email AskHalmoni@gmail.com for a chance to have her answer your deep, burning questions!

      Dear Halmoni,


      
I am a 32-year-old woman and I feel like every other day a friend, a coworker or a family member is announcing a marriage or pregnancy. Increasingly, I’m getting a tinge of a feeling that I should be hitting these milestones, too. Only a tinge, not a big urge. Mostly, the idea of marriage and kids scares me. Should I wait until things “feel right” and then pursue that path, or do I need to consider my age and plow ahead before it’s too late?


      
Thanks, Gran.


      — Sleepless in Seattle



      
Dear Sleepless in Seattle,


      
First of all, Halmoni love romantic comedy. Halmoni also wonder where is the child actor that played Jonah. Questions, questions.


      
Speaking of question, to be a 32-year-old woman is a big question sign, aye? In my day, we have no choice. Halmoni was locked in room until she agree to marry ugly man. But guess what? Halmoni run away and get PhD in ballroom dance. Halmoni know she sacrifice some benefit of traditional life, but on plus side, had many glorious dance under disco lights.


      
This generation always rely on “feel right,” but Halmoni recommend you squeeze your brain, preferably while in hot sauna, and ask question: “What do I want to do in life?” Halmoni speak with caution, but always act in courage. Never in fear. If you scare what people think, stop it! If you fear diapers of husband and baby, stop it! Nobody ever ready for big life change, but you will be brave and use conscious mind. Modern woman make her own stones.


      
In words of magical nun Halmoni saw in dream one night, “Climb every mountain, ford every stream, follow every rainbow, till you find your dream!”


      
Be courage, young one.


      You welcome,

      Halmoni

      There are all kinds of reasons why people choose to get tattoos. Some get them to remember loved ones while others want to celebrate their hobbies or other passions. Regardless, the reasons are unique and special to every individual!

      It used to be taboo for celebrities to have tattoos, especially in conservative societies, but this doesn’t mean they didn’t have them. You might be surprised to learn which of your favorite celebrities have tattoos since they could be hidden in super-secret places. Here’s a list that will keep you guessing if the tattoos are REAL or FAKE! (Hint: There are only three fake tattoos in the images below!)

      Kim Jae Joong

      On Kim Jae Joong’s (“Spy” and “Triangle”) beautiful body, he has the names “Junsu” and “Yoochun” (“Three Days” and “Rooftop Prince”) written on his lower back as a tribute to his fellow JYJ members. It shows how much they mean to him, and he wants to keep them forever. The rest of Kim Jae Joong’s tattoos include his birthday and short sayings. With so many visible tattoos, we’re curious about the ones we haven’t seen yet. 

      Song Jae Rim


      This rising star has been gaining fans lately by revealing his cheesy, romantic side on “We Got Married Season 4” with Kim So Eun (“Liar Game” and “Boys Over Flowers”) while taking on meatier roles in dramas such as the currently airing “Unkind Women” and “Surplus Princess.” You’ve probably seen glimpses of his arm tattoo, which is of praying hands and Philippians 4:13 (a popular Bible verse), but did you ever know about his upper back one?

      Marian Rivera


      Marian Rivera (“Darna”) and pop diva Mariah Carey have one thing in common — a love for butterflies! As if it already wasn’t obvious that Marian adores them, she had a butterfly-themed bridal shower leading up to her December 30, 2014, wedding with longtime partner, Dingdong Dantes (“Dyesebel” and “Amaya”). The gorgeous Filipina decided to get inked after his first proposal in a butterfly dome while vacationing together in Macau.

      Henry of Super Junior-M



      Henry has a rainbow of colors on his body, but we don’t mind one bit! He became SM Entertainment’s first male solo artist in 13 years in May 2013 and his popularity has skyrocketed ever since joining “Real Men.” This year, Henry acted in his first drama “Persevere, Goo Hae Ra” and was recently cast as a new “We Got Married” couple with Kim Ye Won (“Hotel King”) of former K-pop girl group Jewelry.

      Gong Hyo Jin


      Gong Hyo Jin (“It’s Okay, That’s Love” and “Master’s Sun”) is always feminine and hipster, but her tattoos take it to the next level! The peace sign and word “Love” on her pointer and ring fingers, respectively, act like chic accessories while the one on her arm gives off a cool vibe. We would’ve never believed she had so much body art.

      Ice Preechaya Pongthananikorn


      Ice Preechaya started off 2015 on a high note with the overwhelming success of her movie “I Fine...Thank You...Love You” co-starring Sunny Suwanmethanon (“True Love Next Door”). Her tattoo is simple and classy, which matches the minimal makeup she’s wearing. If only we could all look so naturally pretty! See more of her now in “Opas the Series.”

      Wu Chun



















      If you weren’t convinced before that Wu Chun (“Hana Kimi”) was hot, we think that’s been settled now. He began his entertainment career in 2005 as a member of Mandopop group Fahrenheit with Aaron Yan (“Fall in Love With Me” and “The Clue Collector”), Jiro Wang (“To Get Her”), and Calvin Chen (“Love Buffet”). In addition to his arm tattoos, he has one on his leg of Michael Jordan’s famous flying mid-air outline.

      Sunny Wang



















      Known for his bad boy image given his large back and arm tattoos, Sunny Wang (“Dragon Gate”) actually comes from a business background, graduating with a bachelor’s degree from New York University. As the son of a shipping tycoon, he was pressured to help his family but always enjoyed performing since young and finally had the courage to pursue his dream to enter showbiz in 2011.

      Kim Hyun Joong


      Forget all the rumors you’ve heard about him lately and focus instead on how well he rocks the tattooed look. Kim Hyun Joong has come a long way since his early SS501 days. He’s worked hard to establish himself as a credible solo artist and actor through dramas such as “Playful Kiss” and “Inspiring Generation.”

      Park Yoochun


      If you noticed the Native American feather tattoo on Yoochun’s ankle, it’s actually one that his brother, Yoohwan (“I Need Romance 3”), also has to represent their strong bond. Another tattoo Yoochun shares with a special someone is over his heart, which matches the one Kim Jae Joong has. Meanwhile, his shoulder blade includes an image of his mom and his own name written in Thai.

      Lee Jong Suk

      As a bonus, we’re throwing in this juicy image of Lee Jong Suk because we know you obsessively watched “Pinocchio” like the rest of us! You can feel his fierce gaze piercing our hearts. Sigh.


      Can you guess the three celebrities with fake tattoos? Check back on this blog on Sunday for the answers!

      It’s earth-shattering news in the Korean entertainment world that has been finally confirmed! Lee Min Ho is officially off the market! His agency confirmed to Korean news sources on March 22 that he is dating Suzy, a member of the K-pop girl group Miss A and star of such popular television dramas as “Gu Family Book” and “Dream High.”

      Star House Entertainment released a statement that said: “The two of them started dating about a month ago, and they’re currently careful about their relationship. We hope everyone watches them with warmth.”


      JYP Entertainment, the agency representing Suzy, also issued its own statement: “Suzy and Lee Min Ho have been dating for about a month. They’re just carefully starting, so we would be grateful if people look on them warmly.” 

      Source: Dispatch of Korea

      The Korean news outlet Dispatch is reporting that the two megastars have been in a relationship for a couple of months now and have been going on dates all over the globe. The news agency reports that on March 10, Lee Min Ho flew to Paris for a photo shoot, while Suzy left the same day for London for her own photo shoot. When Lee Min Ho was done, he flew to London on March 15 and picked Suzy up at her hotel. They then checked into London’s Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard at slightly different times and enjoyed three days together out-and-about town, with Lee Min Ho driving them around.


      Source: Dispatch of Korea

      In Korea, the two have been seen together almost nonstop since February 25, the news agency reports.

      Lee Min Ho is a Asian megastar whose popularity spans the globe. Since the popular 2009 television drama “Boys Over Flowers” catapulted him to stardom, he has starred in many other popular films and dramas, including “Personal Taste,” “City Hunter,” “The Great Doctor (aka Faith)” and “Heirs.” He has previously dated Park Min Young, his co-star from “City Hunter,” while Suzy has been linked to a few top stars that were never confirmed.

      While millions of Lee Min Ho fans may be a little sad at the news that he is off the market, no one can argue that he and Suzy make a cute couple! We wish the stars the best in their new relationship!

      Update: Lee Min Ho’s agency also confirmed that the star will not be enlisting for military service this year due to his busy schedule. He is due to make a comeback in the latter half of this year in a new television drama.

      Whether you’re a new or veteran drama fan, there are some Korean terms essential to understanding your favorite dramas. Even with subtitles, some words don’t have direct translations into other languages and are often either skipped or spelled out phonetically. Learn the following terms to sound like a Hallyu expert!


      aegyo (EGG-yo) — The act of making a cute face and trying to act cute and adorable. For some reason, this seems to be a sought-after personality trait by some drama men in the women they date.


      aigoo (EYE-goo) — An expression of exasperation, much like “Seriously?!”


      ajumma (AH-joo-mah) “Lady” or “woman" with the connotation of being older, possibly with children. You wouldn’t use this for a student or a woman in her 20s.


      ahjussi (AH-juh-shee)  Man or mister.” Like “ajumma,” this usually refers to an older man and wouldn’t be used for someone younger than you.

      chaebol (JEH-bohl) — Heir to a family conglomerate business. If you were to believe K-dramas, they’re everywhere, and they’re usually smoking hot and moody!


      Some of our favorite drama chaebols include Ji Sung in ‘Kill Me, Heal Me,’ Choi Jin Hyuk and Lee Min Ho in ‘Heirs’ and So Ji Sub in ‘Master’s Sun


      Chosun Dynasty (JOH-sun, sometimes written as Joseon Dynasty) Era in Korean history from 1392 to 1897, when many famous kings ruled and evil family members tried to kill them. Most Korean historical dramas take place during this period, and many time-travel dramas involve traveling between this era and present day.

      daebak (DEH-bak) — An expression of amazement, much like “No way!” Characters usually lower their voice an octave when saying this word.

      dong-seng (DOHNG-seng) — “Younger brother.” This can be used to express a close relationship with someone younger even if that person is not biologically related.

      Fighting! (be sure to pronounce the T very strongly as in FIE-TING!) — A standalone word that is usually said very loudly while accompanied by a held-up fist, this word is used to encourage someone to do well before they face a tough situation or go into a lion’s den.

      Gyung-bae! (GYUNG-beh) — “Cheers!” If you don’t say it before you down a shot of soju in a K-drama, it’s probably because you’re alone and feeling sorry for yourself that you don’t have anyone to make a toast with!

      heol (HULL— An expression of surprise much like “daebak” but more along the lines of “OMG.” You should deepen your voice for maximum effect.


      hoobae (WHO-beh) A younger schoolmate. It also can be used to refer to a coworker who is hired after you. In dramas, a lot of hazing comes with the territory of being the “hoobae.” You’re always stuck paying for coffee or doing other menial tasks for your “sunbae.”

      hyung (make sure to pronounce both the H and Y and rhyme with sung— “Older brother” when a younger boy or man is referring to another boy or man who is older. It can be used for anyone that is a close friend and doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re biologically related.

      jjang (JAHNG with a hard J sound) — A term that means “the best” or “the greatest.” 


      K-drama— Contraction of “Korean” and “drama” that only the truest K-drama fans use. Dont ever be caught saying Korean drama.


      K-pop— Contraction of “Korean and “pop” that only true fans use to refer to a type of music that often involves a group of Korean men or women dancing in perfect synchronicity to a catchy tune that won’t leave your brain. As with K-drama, don’t be caught saying “Korean pop”!


      The cool dance moves of the popular K-pop boy band INFINITE-H


      kimchi (KIM-CHEE) — The national food of Korea that is universally eaten and beloved by all Korean people so much so that they devote entire dramas to the worship of this pickled or fermented cabbage. Although cabbage kimchi is the most common, the Korean people have turned pickling and fermenting of almost every type of vegetable into an art form.


      noona (NU-nah) The term for “older sister” that a boy or man calls a girl or woman who is older (the term used by females calling older females is “unnie”). But the term is often used by younger men to refer to an older woman that they like. “Noona romances” are a common storyline in K-dramas, and for some inexplicable reason, three years or eight years older seem to be the magic numbers for the “acceptable” age gap between a young man and a “noona.


      oppa (OH-pah) — The term for “older brother” by girls or women referring to a male who is older. The term is used by women to refer to any friend or man who is a few years older, especially by the “third wheel” in a Korean drama who wants to get close to or steal a man away from another woman.

      Yo Na (played by Ji Sung, top) finds her ‘oppa’ (played by Park Seo Joon) in ‘Kill Me, Heal Me

      ramen (RAHM-yun) — The ubiquitous instant noodles that everybody in K-dramas eats so deliciously!


      Jun Ji Hyun makes eating ramen look refined in ‘My Love From the Star

      sageuk (SAH-guk)  A Korean historical drama, usually set in the Chosun Dynasty, when the people spoke in a type of Korean thats hard for even Korean people to understand. In most sageuks, theres usually a king or crown prince who is trying to keep from being overthrown.

      Some of our favorite sageuks include ‘The King’s Face’ (top) and ‘Secret Door

      sunbae (SUN-beh) — A term to refer to someone older who attended the same school but graduated ahead of you. Its a term of respect that everyone who graduated after you from the same school (hoobae) needs to call you. But being a sunbae in Korean dramas carries the burden of being asked for favors, jobs or money.

      unnie (UN-nee) — The term for “older sister” that a girl or woman calls someone older. This term is used to refer to someone older who may not necessarily be biologically related to show a close relationship.

      Is there a commonly used K-drama word that you think we should add to this list? Let us know in the comments!

      Just like Choi Jin Hyuk in “Emergency Couple” and Park Seo Joon in “A Witch’s Romance,” Choi Woo Shik is now the newest member of the leading actor club with “Fool’s Love.” We had a feeling he was headed for stardom after last year’s breakout role in “Fated to Love You” as Lee Yong, Gun’s (played by Jang Hyuk) at-first-scheming-but-then-hilariously-supportive-brother. At the Busan International Film Festival in 2014, he even won Actor of the Year for the movie, “Set Me Free.”

      It seems only fitting that we celebrate his 25th birthday on March 26 by playing our version of the 20-questions game (but really only five) to learn more about how he got here and why you should be a fan!

      Question: Can He Speak More Than One Language? 
      Answer: Yes!


      Joining G.NA, Yuki Furukawa and Godfrey Gao on the list of celebrities with ties to Canada, Choi Woo Shik spent 10 years of his life in Vancouver. This means he can speak English! However, if you decide to communicate through the language of love, we expect there to be no problems either.

      Question: Is He Signed by a Well-Known Agency?
      Answer: Yes!


      Choi Woo Shik’s cute apple hairstyle in ‘Rooftop Prince’ 
      When JYP Entertainment has your back, it can’t be a bad thing, right? For Choi Woo Shik, the decision to sign with JYP in 2012 really helped catapult his career. Shortly thereafter, he landed a supporting role in “Rooftop Prince” as an adorable eunuch! Not to mention, we bet he’s grown his circle of K-pop friends by being in the same agency with Miss A, 2PM, 2AM and GOT7.

      Question: Do You Think He Looks Like Henry Lau?
      Answer: Yes!














      Henry Lau (“Real Men” and “We Got Married Season 4”) really does look like Choi Woo Shik’s brother from a Taiwanese mother. They both grew up in Canada, were selected by major entertainment agencies (SM vs. JYP), and are rising industry stars. Do you agree? Regardless, you can’t go wrong rocking a suit and tie, which Choi Woo Shik does for his role as a young prosecutor in “Pride and Prejudice.”

      Question: Does He Only Specialize in Comedic Characters? 
      Answer: No!


      Surprising twist! While Choi Woo Shik acted as lovable characters in “Fated to Love You” and “Fool’s Love,” Choi Woo Shik actually had a cameo in “You’re All Surrounded”as a frustrated, unlucky guy having a bad day. He got fed up with how things were going in his life and held everyone hostage in a restaurant, including the detectives played by Go Ah Ra and Lee Seung Gi.

      Question: Is He Pregnant?
      Answer: Yes ... And No



      We know that it’s not possible for guys to get pregnant, but in Choi Woo Shik’s case, he’s technically pretending while hanging out with co-star UEE on the set of “Fool’s Love.” How do you think he looks with the baby belly? Does he carry it well?

      Happy 25th birthday, Choi Woo Shik! Send him some birthday love by leaving a comment on his Celebrities page!

      Who can forget Psy’s “Gangnam Style” from 2012 and the global phenomenon it became and the thousands of parodies that followed? But what we all remember the most from that song is the dance. Yes, this one:

      In 2013, another popular K-pop dance craze emerged — boy band INFINITE’s “scorpion dance.” It didn’t gain the global attention “Gangnam Style” did, but to this day, it is still being used by other K-pop groups. So how’s the scorpion dance done? Well, like this:

      Maybe white is your color or you can’t resist the aura of authority that men and women have when they’re wearing medical scrubs or lab coats! Whatever catches your fancy, medical dramas on Viki are some of the most irresistible and entertaining genres to watch! Some of our favorite Asian idols and stars have donned the lab coat in popular dramas in recent years. In celebration of National Doctors Day on March 30, here are some of our favorite drama doctors!

      Our Favorite Emergency/Trauma Physicians

      Our Favorite Genius General Surgeons


      Because there seems to be an abundance of genius surgeons in Asian dramas, Ahn Jae Hyun (left) plays a vampire variety in the currently airing drama “Blood,” while Ryoko Yonekura (middle) plays the “freelance” version (because apparently, you can be freelance as a surgeon!) in “Doctor-X,” and Kwon Sang Woo is just a “surgical genius” in “Medical Top Team.”

      Our Favorite Surgical Sub-Specialists


      Lee Jong Suk (A) plays a genius cardiac surgeon in “Doctor Stranger,” while Song Seung Heon (B) plays a brilliant neurosurgeon in “Dr. Jin” whose reputation so proceeds him that even history is in need of his unparalleled skills!

      Our Favorite Psychiatrists


      Being a die-hard drama fan can make you a little crazy in the head as you try to follow all the twists and turns of a drama storyline! We’d love to have these drama psychiatrists get our heads on straight again! Hwang Jung Eum again dons the white coat to play a psychiatric resident in the recently concluded hit drama, “Kill Me, Heal Me,” Chun Jung Myung is a little loose with ethics in “Heart to Heart,” Gong Hyo Jin is a confident psychiatric fellow in “It’s Okay, That’s Love,” and Song Chang Eui is a genius psychology professor who helps the police solve tough crimes in “Dr. Frost.”

       Other Specialists


      Maritza Bustamante (clockwise from top left) is an obstetrician-bynecologist in the Venezuelan telenovela “Torrent of Passions,” Tang Zhi Ping plays a sweet school doctor in “Hana Kimi,” Tiffany Hsu is a medical student in “Autumn’s Concerto,” and Yuki Furukawa becomes an internist in “Mischievous Kiss 2: Love in TOKYO.”

      Positive thinking and meditation are decent ways to ease your mind on a bad day, but sometimes seeking mental balance isn’t enough. Sometimes, you just need to see someone else face-plant harder than you to make you feel better about yourself. Don’t feel guilty, we’re all here to support you.

      So if you’re having a bad day — say, because someone played an especially cruel April Fool’s joke on you this year — we want to help you make it through your day with these five drama characters who are having a way worse day than you!

      Accidental Encounter of the Boob Kind


      Setting the baseline for awkwardness and deep, piercing regret is Se Dong (played by Shin Se Kyung) of “Iron Man.” She finds herself in an accidental groping encounter but is able to deflect the inevitable with the best reflexes. The take-away: next time you trip, make sure not to outstretch both arms towards boobs. Luckily GIFs are continuous loops, so we can feel painfully uncomfortable an infinite number of times, over and over again, forever.

      Getting Mauled by a Girl


      Always give credit to guys who make the first move! In “Answer Me 1997,” Yoon Jae (played by Seo In Guk) tries to kiss Shi Won (played by Jung Eun Ji). Unfortunately for him, Shi Won’s aggressive-suitor rejection is straight out of an “Animal Planet” documentary. She wants to make it excruciatingly clear that she’s not that type of girl. Yep, she got her point across all right…

      The Worst-Ever Time to Be Stood Up



      Kwanjai (played by Paula Taylor) of “True Love Next Door” takes being stood up at the altar like a real woman — armed with a utilitarian and cost-effective toilet-paper armband matched effortlessly with her wedding dress. Better use it to dab that running mascara before it reaches her beautiful dress!

      This Happens on Your First Day of a New Job


      In “What Happens to My Family,” Dal Bong (played by Park Hyung Shik) is on his way to his first day of a new job when he gets stabbed on the train and his wallet stolen. When you factor in the long-term consequences and psychological damage, this may seem like the worst day on this list. Yet somehow, Dal Bong remains as fly as possible throughout the day’s obstacles.

      And Then … This



      Imagine just walking down the street minding your own business and enjoying your nerdy book, when  someone suddenly pulls your pants down! Sure, Young Mi (played by Bae Noo Ri) was just trying to follow her crush, Eun Chul (played by Oh Sang Jin), when she accidentally trips on her high heels in “Sweden Laundry.” But having a woman pull down your pants in broad daylight definitely qualifies as a day that you deserve to just click refresh and start over. Especially if her face is all up in your business.

      Had a day worse than these? That truly sucks, and we here at Viki sympathize with you. Let us know more in the comments!

      We know it’s coming every year, yet somehow we still get fooled! This April, a few K-Pop stars executed lighthearted pranks to have a laugh with their fans. BTS joined in on the fun by showing us their feminine side with a fake “Bangtan Girls” layout on their official fancafe. The image (pictured above) features all seven members in drag from past reality show appearances. Below are some more of our favorite April Fool’s Day pranks!


      Chanyeol of K-Pop group EXO posted an old picture of himself on Instagram, with a caption that included, “I'm EXO’s Chanyeol and have debuted with the song ‘MAMA’!! Though I still have a long way to go, I’ll give my full effort to show my best side!!” Chanyeol actually debuted with EXO back in 2012, but it’s still comforting to hear that he’s committed to his work, even if it was a joke!


      The K-Pop group Teen Top used April Fool’s Day as an opportunity to show off their adorable side, with Twitter profile pictures of the members as toddlers (as if we needed another reason to be obsessed with them).



      This time last year we were treated to Eric Nam interviewing himself in a hilarious parody of his famous interview with Amanda Seyfried. Also last year, Taemin fan site Taempo transformed into a tampon website. Not to be left out of the pranking for 2014, Jaejoong announced his (ultimately phony) desire to be married within three years.

      What are some of your favorite April Fool’s Day pranks? Let us know in the comments below!

      Gong Hyo Jin is riding on a wave of recent success lately with “It’s Okay, That’s Love” and the announcement of her upcoming role in the highly-anticipated drama “Producer,” which includes the likes of Kim Soo Hyun (“My Love From the Star”), IU (“Beautiful Man”), and Cha Tae Hyun (“First Love Rally”) as costars.

      She is turning 35 years old on April 4, but her looks are timeless. Let’s celebrate her birthday by remembering the quirky things that have made her so lovable over the years!

      She Could Make a Paper Bag Look Fashionable


      At a tall height of 5’8”, outfits that would normally appear unflattering on others are perfect on her model body. In “It’s Okay, That’s Love,” she even brought bellbottoms and pinstripe suits back in style by adding her special flare.


      Not only is Gong Hyo Jin a fashionista on-screen, but she also is in real life! Items worn by her are usually sold out in stores. Gong Hyo Jin first became interested in fashion while in her teens and flew to Australia to pursue her dreams. We’re glad she eventually decided on the acting route!

      ‘Yes, Chef’ Never Sounded So Cute


      “Yes, Chef” became her iconic phrase during the 2010 drama “Pasta.” Afterwards, fans gave her the nickname Gong-vely (공블리), the combination of Gong + Lovely. You can count her “Pasta” costar Choi Jin Hyuk as a fan, too! If you didn’t know, he was part of the supporting cast. During a radio program on March 10, Choi Jin Hyuk mentioned wanting to play opposite her in a romantic comedy drama upon completion of his military service!


















      Will we be able to see the Gong Hyo Jin-Choi Jin Hyuk pairing two years from now? We have our fingers crossed.

      She Can Rock Any Hairstyle


      Which drama hairstyle is your favorite on Gong Hyo Jin — bangs, bob, medium length or long? Short hair is definitely hard to pull off, but she makes it look so easy in “The Greatest Love.” If that wasn’t enough reason to watch this fun drama, you can catch her dancing to Korean pop songs! Regardless, Gong Hyo Jin really is a chameleon, and it’s difficult to choose which hairstyle is best overall.

      She Can See Ghosts ... Or Can She?

















      In “Master’s Sun,” Gong Hyo Jin plays Tae Gong Sil, a woman who has the ability to see ghosts. While scared at first, she soon realizes that they are seeking her help with unfinished business, such as relaying important information to loved ones or bringing their killers to justice. The developing love triangle in the drama leaves her sandwiched between So Ji Sub and Seo In Guk, which is a place we wouldn’t mind being! Who would you pick?

      She Goes Against Stereotypes























      Gong Hyo Jin battled throughout the early half of her career for roles that portrayed “real women.” She felt typecast into roles without substance but was unwilling to do nudity. In 2006, Gong Hyo Jin was cast in “Family Ties” for a role the director had written specifically for her. This was the turning point in her career as the film earned widespread acclaim for brilliant acting. She regained her passion for acting and has been on fire ever since, with a long list of awards to prove her popularity.

      From all your fans around the world, we wish you a happy 35th birthday, Gong Hyo Jin!

      Hyun Bin juggles multiple personalities in ‘Hyde, Jekyll, Me

      The end came and went, and it couldn’t feel more bittersweet to leave the familiar faces of “Hyde, Jekyll, Me.” Well, particularly the singular face of Hyun Bin, portraying the characters of both Seo Jin and Robin. Seeing the actor stretched between opposite poles has been a treat for Hyun Bin fans, and who wouldn’t mind seeing him twice as often? For the character of Robin, Hyun Bin was caring and emotional, but for Seo Jin, he had to be cool and calculating, which certainly has its own appeal! Playing opposite Hyun Bin was Han Ji Min, who was captivating in her role as Ha Na. To send off “Hyde, Jekyll, Me,” below are some of our favorite moments from the show.

      Wholesome Puppet Love


      We’re suckers for deeply romantic apologies, and the puppet-kiss scene pulled out all of the stops. When Ha Na got upset with Robin for not telling her the truth about Seo Jin erasing his texts, Robin took her to the circus office and used a hand puppet to apologize to her. Ha Na put on her corresponding hand puppet to convey her understanding. We would have never guessed what a smooth move puppetry was in Robin’s arsenal of romantic gestures! As Ha Na and Robin’s puppets kissed, Robin swooped in to get a little sugar for himself.

      A Blast From the Past


      When the suspect for the case begins to talk, Seo Jin and Ha Na rush over to the station to hear what he has to say. Somehow, the suspect is able to see through the one-way mirror and creepily sings the Wonderland theme song directly to Seo Jin. That’s when everything gets way more interesting, with the big reveal that he is actually Lee Soo Hyun, the boy Seo Jin left behind when they were both kidnapped as children. The tragedy unfolds in painful flashbacks from Seo Jin’s perspective. As we learn more about Seo Jin’s past, we see the complexities of his strained relationship with his father.

      Seo Jin’s Love Confession


      Seo Jin and Ha Na come home to rest after an emotionally charged phone call between Seo Jin and the Chairman. Seo Jin prepares some medication for Ha Na and explains how his father said, “I’m sorry,” something he’s never heard his father say. The talk with his father inspires Seo Jin to also say something he’s never said before, and he professes his love to Ha Na in the most calm and detached Seo Jin-way.

      Getting Adorably Cozy on the Couch


      After Robin receives the Webtoon Writer Talk of the Town award in Episode 18, he cuddles on the couch with Ha Na to pull on our heartstrings in the most adorable way possible. While it wasn’t one of the show’s trademark “big, important scenes,” it’d been a while since we were able to see Robin be happily guilt-free, and this was a well-deserved moment of peace for him.

      Robin and Ha Na’s Fairytale Wedding


      The emotional ride was capped by the wedding of Robin and Ha Na, a moment that gave fans the deeply satisfying happy ending. The decision to marry these two characters seemed to polarize fans, as some felt as though the wedding didn’t provide proper closure to some of the outstanding plot points. However, after all of the tension of the previous few episodes, this was a refreshing bit of hope for Robin and Ha Na’s future. We were suspending our disbelief fairly high thus far, so believing in their happiness wasn’t much of a stretch.

      What were some of your favorite moments of “Hyde, Jekyll, Me”? Let us know in the comments below!

      Is Ha Na staring into the eyes of Seo Jin or Robin in ‘Hyde Jekyll, Me’?

      You may think it’s tough to glean tangible life skills from K-dramas, with their obvious detachment from reality. But you’d be surprised! Take, for example, dating someone with multiple personalities. Where can one find guidance on how to navigate those uncharted waters? With the finales in the last few weeks of two popular K-dramas — “Hyde, Jekyll, Me” and “Kill Me, Heal Me” — both focusing on central characters with dissociative identity disorder (formerly known as multiple-personality disorder), we’ve pulled together some useful tips for when you find yourself dating someone with more than one personality!

      Learn How to Tell the Personalities Apart

      In ‘Hyde, Jekyll, Me,’ Hyun Bin goes from an angry face to a smiley face to play Seo Jin (left) and Robin

      It takes some time for Ha Na (played by Han Ji Min) to figure out that Robin and Seo Jin (both played by Hyun Bin) aren’t actually twins in Hyde, Jekyll, Me,” and you can learn from her struggles. Focus on the details, like Robin’s luscious smile and gorgeous dimples vs. Seo Jin’s bad-boy demeanor and trademark glare. The two different hairstyles and wardrobe are instant visual cues, too!


      In ‘Kill Me, Heal Me,’ Ji Sung goes from business suit to leather and sleek to play Do Hyun (left) and Se Gi

      Luckily for Ri Jin (played by Hwang Jung Eum) in “Kill Me, Heal Me,” bad-boy Se Gi (played by Ji Sung) rocks the flashy wardrobe and guy-liner, and loads his hair with product. With Do Hyun’s more buttoned-up style and relaxed eyes, distinguishing the two is a breeze!



      Always Be Prepared for Changing Personalities!


      What happens when you kiss one personality and then another personality emerges mid-smooch? The confused expressions are priceless in ‘Kill Me, Heal Me’!

      Ha Na hits it off immediately with the easy-going Robin, but Seo Jin’s harshness makes it hard for Ha Na to warm up to him in Hyde, Jekyll, Me.” Se Gi’s bold confession to Ri Ji in the first episode of “Kill Me Heal Me” ignites strong feelings between them, and Se Gi goes in for a kiss while they’re watching fireworks. Mid-smooch, he transforms back to Do Hyun, who has neutral feelings for Ri Jin. What can we learn from this disaster? Situations are constantly evolving, but you have to be prepared to adapt!

      Don’t Mention the Name of the ‘Other Guy’!

      Seo Jin and Robin have conflicting personalities, enough so that when Seo Jin even cracks a smile or acts the least bit nice, he’s called “Robin-like” in Hyde, Jekyll, Me.” And both personalities get very annoyed when Ha Na mentions one in front of the other!

      The same is true for Ri Jin in Kill Me, Heal Me.” Se Gi won’t allow Ri Jin to even mention Do Hyun’s name in front of him, leaving her to refer to the dueling personalities as Mr. Cha and Mr. Shin in front of one or the other. But if she wanted Se Gi to behave himself, all Ri Jin had to do was start comparing him to Do Hyun. As fired up as he would get, it would still be effective!


      Make It Clear Which Personality You’re Dating!


      The average viewer might think, “Why not lock down both personalities, then they’ll always love you.”  Unfortunately, chances are slim that two diametrically opposed personalities will have the same taste in girls. You’ll just have to cut your losses and choose one. Take note from Se Gi of “Kill Me Heal Me.”  He constructs a love wheel to give himself a fair shot at being Ri Jin’s man. Too bad it wasn’t destined to be.

      Beware of Relationship Sabotage by the Personality You’re NOT Dating! 

      Ha Na almost lost her guy (Robin) when Seo Jin pretended to be Robin for a night with Ha Na in Hyde, Jekyll, Me.” Seo Jin then dismissed Ha Na’s drunken confession to him and then deleted the text messages she sent Robin the next morning. Luckily, Robin was able to do major damage control and convince Ha Na to give him another shot.



      Learn to Love the Man You Get and Not the Man You Want!

      What happens when you’re really in love with one personality but it may not be the personality that you can have a future with? You’ll have to see the tear-filled moments when Ri Gin (in “Kill Me, Heal Me”) and Ha Na (in “Hyde Jekyll, Me”) have to face a future they didn’t quite expect in the two thrilling finales of the exciting dramas. We don’t want to give anything away, but you’ll definitely be able to walk away better equipped to face a future with your lover with multiple personalities!

      For more tips on managing a romance with multiple personalities, be sure to catch up on “Hyde Jekyll, Me” and “Kill Me, Heal Me”!

      Over the past two weeks, we’ve asked you about the best, brightest and hottest stars and shows in the Taiwanese drama scene. The votes (thousands of them at that!) have been tallied and here are the winners of this year’s “Viki Spring Awards 2015”! Certain stars and their projects have emerged as real fan favorites, showing their awesome popularity.

      Want to see if your picks came out as top dog? Check out the full list of winners below!


      With a career that spans more than 10 years (and counting!) and filmography that includes hits like “Love Buffet,” “Just You,” and “Fall in Love With Me,” it’s only natural that Aaron Yan has an awesome network of connections. His circle includes his music group Fahrenheit, Puff Guo, Tia Li and Jasper Liu. With friends like that, it’s no wonder he’s your pick for “Most Well-Connected Artist”!


      A bonafide songstress on-stage and eye-catching actress on-screen, Dream Girls’ Puff Guo has won your hearts as Favorite Idol-Actor. With roles in the popular dramas “Love Myself or You” and “Just You,” and her popular virtual marriage with Super Junior’s Heechul on “We Got Married Global Edition Season 2,” Puff Guo has definitely solidified her place as one of the top multi-hyphenated starlets in the Taiwanese entertainment scene.


      According to your votes, Aaron Yan has mastered the art of the perfect social media presence. Just check out his Instagram profile (@aayan1120): selfies complete with perfect lighting, bi-lingual captions in English and Chinese to appeal to his global fanbase, strong use of #hashtags and on-point use of emojis. Looks like it’s time for us to take some cues and step up our SNS game!


      Cheng Hao Wei (played by Jolin Chien) of “Love Myself or You” won your hearts as the Most Friend-Zoned Character for his role as the adorable college buddy. Although close friends with Kai Qi (played by Puff Guo) and even shares a common niche interest in manga, Hao Wei is never able to truly reveal his feelings. With heartbreak like that, it’s easy to see why he was your choice!


      It looks like being too cute also means being too cringe-worthy! The lovey-dovey dash toward the finish line by Bao Zhu (played by Ba Yu) and Da Zhi (played by Yorke Sun) in “Love Myself or You” seems to have struck a strong chord with a lot of you. As cute and adorable as this moment was, we have to wonder how the screenwriters thought of writing something like that!


      This heart-wrenching moment between Kai Qi (played by Puff Guo) and Zi Jie (played by Jasper Liu) in “Love Myself or You” definitely pulled at our heartstrings (the feels were too real!). Her guilt-filled words to Zi Jie, saying that they can’t be together, had us glued to our screens.


      Fall in Love With Me” made us all gasp with this steamy scene between Tian Xing (played by Aaron Yan) and Le Si (played by Tia Li). Stranded together and drying out their clothes, the two begin to passionately kiss. This unpredictable moment was one that definitely left us all in a ball of emotions!


      This ballad from the “Just You” soundtrack is a sweet song about how one slowly opens his or her heart to love. Aaron Yan shows off his singing chops, which first brought him into the spotlight. An easy-to-follow melody, sugary-sweet lyrics and a popular singer-actor make this a classic drama OST sure to win hearts — and it won yours! 

      A huge thank you to everyone around the globe who voted, and if your faces didn’t win, don’t be sad! You can still keep giving them love and support by leaving comments on their Celebrities page or watching (or rewatching) their dramas on Viki!
