[NEWS] Jung Il Woo to become in laws with G-Dragon?

At a press conference for new tvN Kdrama ‘Pretty Boys’ Ramen Shop‘, actor Jung Il Woo began to talk about his beloved Shar Pei, Ah Woo with his fans who were present at the event.“My dog who was given to me as a birthday gift from my fans last year now weighs nearly 40 pounds, and won’t listen to 
anything I say,” he said. “When I was filming ‘49 Days‘, G-Dragon who also has a Shar Pei called me and asked if I was interested in letting our dogs meet“, he revealed.But due to the busy schedules of both, the dogs have been unable to meet yet. He continued, “I was so busy filming the drama, we were unable to get together to arrange the marriage for our dogs… And also because Ah Woo is female, I feel like she should play a little hard to get anyway. If he contacts me again, though, I think I just may allow it.”
In his new drama ‘Pretty Boys’ Ramen Shop’, Jung Il Woo plays the role of a handsome high school student, Cha Chi Soo, who develops a romance with the athletic Yang Eun Bi, the daughter of the Ramen Shop.

The drama is a feel-good romantic comedy and will begin airing on the 31st at 11PM KST.

[News] U-Know Yunho vs T.O.P, Airport Fashion Doppelgangers?

TVXQ’s U-Know Yunho and Big Bang’s T.O.P, who have recently rose as the airport fashionistas of the Hallyu Wave, have become a hot issue for wearing similar outfits.

On his return to Korea on the 11th of October after the New York-Korea Festival, U-Know Yunho could be seen wearing mirror-style sunglasses, a black print t-shirt and black pants, finishing the stylish look off with a safari jacket.

Big Bang’s T.O.P, who was on his way to New York for a photoshoot, wore Boeing sunglasses, a white t-shirt, black pants and a khaki safari jacket, and gave the appearance of being U-know Yunho’s doppelganger as the two stars took on a similar casual and chic look.

The jacket both stars chose is a product from Calvin Klein Jeans and is part of a sporty and stylish set with a zip-up hoodie cardigan. The two components can be worn separately or together and are perfect for chilly autumn weather.

Netizens who saw the photos left comments such as, “They both look great”, “It’s hard to pick a winner”, “Their looks perfect the style”, and “How do they make such ordinary clothes look so stylish?”
