2PM’s Junho Considers Role Offer in Movie “Twenty”

2PM’s Junho Considers Role Offer in Movie “Twenty”

It will be a busy year for 2PM‘s Junho if he decides to take on the role of Kim Woo Bin‘s friend in the upcoming movie “Twenty”.

The singer-actor just finished filming “Memories of the Sword,” a period drama film starring Lee Byung Hun and directed by Park Heung Shik. He is currently carefully examining materials for his next project while preparing for the upcoming 2PM comeback and his upcoming solo tour in Japan this summer. 

While some reports say that Junho has accepted the role in the movie “Twenty” already according to movie insiders, a representative from JYP Entertainment confirmed in a phone interview with TV Report that Junho is still considering the offer.

“It’s true that Junho got an offer for a role in ‘Twenty’ but there’s nothing definite yet. We’re considering a number of other projects and ‘Twenty’ is just one of those.”

If Junho will take the offer, he will play Kim Woo Bin’s friend who has a unique personality in the movie. 

Last year, Junho showed his acting chops when he played the role of a detective, “Squirrel,” in the movie, “Cold Eyes,” where he acted alongside character actors Sul Kyung Goo, Jung Woo Sung, and Han Hyo Joo. Then rookie actor Junho proved his potential as he showed a strong presence even with a small role in the film. 

“Twenty” is the story of the love and friendship of three 20-year-old boys. The movie is the newest project of actor turned director Lee Byung Hun who also worked with Junho in the independent film, “Cheer Up, Mr. Lee” last year.

Poised to be the male version of the movie, “Singles,” fans are anticipating the dialogue among the male characters that will be played by Kim Woo Bin and Junho.

“Twenty” will start filming in the summer and premier in the later half of the year.

Meanwhile, Junho will have his second solo Japanese tour on July, starting with a two-day concert in Sapporo on July 3-4.

‘Flower Grandpa Investigative Team’ to Feature Chemistry Between Lee Soon Jae and Heechul

What will it be like when ‘Captain Lee Soon Jae’ meets ‘4D Heechul’?

The two men are expected to create a synergy effect by starring in tvN’s Flower Grandpa Investigative Team.

Airing the first episode on May 9, Flower Grandpa Investigative Team will feature three detectives in their 20’s who transform into old men in their 70’s overnight and one elite detective who luckily stays young as himself. The drama will comically tell the story of the three detectives trying to regain their young bodies back.

More than anything, the viewers’ attention has been gathering on the ‘old-new chemistry’ expected between Lee Soon Jae, who showed great teamwork with ‘baggage carrier’ Lee Seo Jin on Grandpas Over Flowers, and Super Junior’s Heechul.

‘Flower Grandpa Investigative Team’ to Feature Chemistry Between Lee Soon Jae and Heechul

Lee Soon Jae will be acting as detective ‘Lee Joon Hyuk’ who has an IQ of 150. Graduating from a police college as the top student, he is able to solve even the most difficult cases.

Heechul will be acting as detective ‘Park Jung Woo,’ the son of the chief of National Police Agency. He seems perfect on the outside, having both good looks and background, but he has no passion to do or be anything. Park Jung Woo is a thorn in Lee Jung Hyul’s eyes, who worked hard to make it through each step.

An affiliate of Flower Grandpa Investigative Team told enews, “Kim Hee Chul is a star with 4D character who calls himself the ‘universe′s big star.’ Unlike many other idols, who tend to have uniform answers, Kim Hee Chul has his own distinct thoughts. It will be interesting to see Kim Hee Chul and Lee Soon Jae create ‘chemistry’ despite being 48 years apart.”

The affiliate added, “The collaboration between free-spirited Heechul and leader Lee Soon Jae will be the viewing point of Flower Grandpa Investigative Team. As Heechul’s real personality will be shown through the drama, you can expect an even better combination between him and Lee Soon Jae.”

Meanwhile, Flower Grandpa Investigative Team is tvN’s new variety type drama that combines elements of a drama and a variety show. The first episode is set to air on May 9.

They say good things come to and end… but what the adage doesn’t say is that they can come back again!

The duo Fly to the Sky announced their return from a five-year hiatus with their 9th album, “Continuum.” The album has ten tracks including “You, You, You” and will be released on May 20. The album is currently available on online music sites.

“Fly to the Sky brings their own musical colors that they have enriched through their solo activities. As expected, the members poured their hearts and souls in producing this album,” said their agency, H2 Media.

Fans can expect the musical color of Fly to the Sky in the 9th album, “Continuum” with songs that are made to fit the duo. “For this 9th album, composers and producers who worked on Fly to the Sky’s album have all brought their musical styles and at the same time, bring something new for the album,” added their agency.

Fly to the Sky will hold have their first performance at their commemorative 9th album showcase on May 20, the day of their album release, at K-Art Hall in Olympic Park.

Mario’s “Damage” feat. Spica’s Kim Boa Ruled Unfit for Broadcast

Mario’s “Damage,” the rapper’s first song in two years, has been ruled unfit for broadcast by KBS.

KBS said, “In the lyrics, ‘Like a retard, I miss you after time has passed’ could potentially have a negative psychological effect on the disabled, so we ruled the song unfit.”

The song, released on April 29, was composed by Kim Chang Rak, and tells the story of a man who regrets letting someone go well after the fact. Mario’s unique voice is well-matched by the talented vocal from girl group Spica, Kim Boa.

In the KBS rulings for the last week of April, out of 122 songs, 116 passed and six were ruled unfit for broadcast.

Soompiers, what do you think? Was this ruling justified?

Regarding my faith, if you look at all the interviews I’ve done and listened to all the music I’ve produced, you’ll know. I’ve studied many religions in the past few years, but I still don’t have a religion. I hope that no more groundless rumors spread.”

Girl’s Day Dish Out Spring Makeup Tips in Cosmopolitan Magazine

Girl’s Day Dish Out Spring Makeup Tips in Cosmopolitan Magazine

Cosmopolitan magazine has released pictures from its recent photo shoot with Girl’s Day, where the girls have been transformed into “May Queens”. 

Girl’s Day is featured modeling bright, single-colored eye shadow and “nude” makeup, which are set to be a hit this spring and summer.


The group also revealed one of their makeup secrets. They told the magazine that if makeup users want to apply a bright, single-colored eye shadow, they should apply it in gradation to the crease in the upper eyelid. If they want to use pearl eye shadow, however, they should add impact by using it in conjunction with a darker-colored eye pencil. This, they said, helps to avoid ending up with puffy-looking eyelids.


Photos from the shoot will be featured in the magazine’s upcoming May edition.
