Choi Jinsil’s last conversation

The contents of the last phone call the late actress Choi Jin-sil made to a magazine reporter have been disclosed.“I want to die. No, I’ll die. Listen, listen to me carefully as it will be the last. I want you to take care of my children. I’m sorry. Please help the kids. You know what I have suffered for the last six years, you know what the truth is. I trust you,” Choi said, ending the seven and a half minute call.

In the November edition of Queen magazine, the reporter, Kim, a close friend of Choi, revealed the phone conversation he had with Choi just before she committed suicide. She expressed grief over rumors believed to have forced her to take her own life.

According to the report, Choi called him around 1 a.m. on Oct. 2, presumably hours before committing suicide, and cried for a while. She repeatedly said, “I don’t need anything! What did I do wrong? Will all this end, if I die?”

Choi suffered rumors that she was involved in the death of actor Ahn Jae-hwan, who killed himself in September allegedly after failing to pay back debts to loan sharks. It was rumored that Choi lent him billions of won.


In an earlier call made Sept. 30, Choi told Kim, “I thought people would believe me because the rumor spreader was caught. But online boards are still filled with my story, and many people still believe that I’m the loan shark who drove Ahn to death.”

“I’m so scared. I feel like dying if the situation continues. Will people trust me if I die? My name is `Choi Jin-sil’ (Jin-sil means truth) but people call me `Choi Hypocrisy.’ Isn’t it sad?” she was quoted as saying.

“I’m sorry for my children, but it may be better to become a mom whose truth is revealed after death than a mom at whom people point fingers,” Choi said.

12219854151051vu3.jpg Jae Joong image by suzini_sae


Jaejung hero acting challenge, “given a shot/chance to working at acting”

Networks, a joint venture in Japan, will be making a Tele Cinema and first episode is Postman of Heaven. It is a joint drama project of Japan and South Korea. Jaejoong had been interviewed on the 24th (of September? It says something about SM EverySing karaoke). Jaejoong is surprised to being casted for the role. He has read the script and took the role, and said he will work hard for it.

“Postman of Heaven” is going to be produced by ‘I’m Sorry I Love You’ Lee Hyungmin PD and Writer Kitagawa Eriko who wrote “One Million Stars Falling from the Sky” staring Takuya Kimura. The drama is about a messenger who connects the Afterlife with the present world. He will be a mailman who is in charge of sending the death of a friend or family member (of a person) up to heaven. There will be a DVD of this mini-series.

Yunho mentions that Jaejoong was the first out of them to make a solo shot at career, and that in the larger framework they are still DBSK as a whole even when they are doing solo.

The drama is scheduled to be filmed as early as the 10th (October?).

Summary thanks to Google translator xD

Please note from this post that:
This isn’t one of those full dramas with 16 episodes or longer. Korean Producers and Japanese Writers are getting together and producing something called “Telecinema.” There will be 7 episodes each with a different story and Jaejoong will be coming out in the 1st episode. A TV version and movie version will be released, which will be 60 minutes and 120 minutes long respectively. There is no info on when this will air. – s@nbi@soompi

Actress Choi Jinsil suicide


Choi Jin-sil, a famous South Korean actress, was found dead at her home in what appears to be a suicide, Yonhap News reported quoting police sources Thursday.

Choi’s mother found the actress with an elastic band around her neck tied to a shower stall in her home in southern Seoul, officers at the Seocho Police Station said.

“We confirmed her death at 7:38 a.m. after receiving a call that Ms. Choi committed suicide,” a police officer was quoted as saying.

Police have been investigating rumors that linked Choi to the recent suicide of another actor, Ahn Jae-hwan, in early September. Rumors circulated that she had lent a large amount of money to Ahn whose debt was mounting from a failing business.

Choi, 40, had since sought a police probe into the source of the rumors, calling them groundless. Investigators arrested a woman, a securities company employee, this week for spreading the rumors.

Choi, one of South Korea’s top actresses, whose marriage to pro baseball player Cho Sung-min ended in an ugly divorce in 2004, is survived by two children.

Rain is coming!

Love story teaser


Magic Feet is back!


Not that the news of Rain’s return to the k-pop scene is anything new, but its officially official with the release of his new teaser video, entitled, “Love Story”. Ha Ji-Won also stars in the music video.

This will be his first album under his new company J Tune Entertainment. Magic Feet is actually using his brain for once.  He has cleaned up very nicely by getting rid of the ajumma hair style. However, with younger rivals such as DBSK and Big Bang behind his back,  he’ll have to keep on his toes to even think of competing with them. I guess coming back to Korea and speaking his native tongue has helped him regain some of his brain cells.

Our Magic Feet has a busy schedule coming up as well, with his new special debuting on the 10th, on M.Net Countdown on the 16th, and performing at the Lotte Family Concert 2 days later…it seems we are going to be seeing much more of the shrimp-eyed wonder.

In the end of the teaser, somehow once again Rain ends up bloody. Oh well, rather this then those nasty pictures from Ninja Assassin floating around the internet.

More pictures and a longer teaser will be released October 2, 2008 but check out what has been released.

Why the hell does Rain have a nickname like magic feet I have no idea~ It’s so silly~ Whatever~ Looking forward to it!

Korean ‘Hana Yori Dango’ casted?


The veil has been lifted.

The F4 members to Korean ‘Hana Yori Dango’ has been confirmed – Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Bum, Lee Min Ho and Kim Jun.


Japan’s popular original manga-turned-drama “Hana Yori Dango” aka “Boys Over Flowers” has casted Lee Min Ho – Kim Hyun Joong – Kim Bum – Kim Jun as the F4 (Flower 4) for the Korean version of the drama.

The drama’s producers, Group 8, revealed through press releases on the morning of the 2nd, who the four main lead males were going to be.

Lee Min Ho will play the Japanese manga role of “Tsukasa” aka “Goo Joon Pyo.” The character of Goo Joon Pyo will be the heir to the Shinhwa Group Enterprises and the leader of the F4. Lee Min Ho has already participated in the drama “Run Mackeral”, “I am Sam”, and the movie “Our School’s ET.” The production company explained that Lee Min Ho was casted for his dark-lined face and his height which towers over 180cm.

Romantic and Quirky young man “Yoon Ji Hoo” (Rui in the original Japanese version) will be played by SS501 Leader Kim Hyun Joong. Kim Hyun Joong was cast the earliest out of the main 4 and has received acting training since then. With the announcement of the casting news, there has been many comments about how he fits the role.

The remaining two F4 members “Seo Lee Jung” and “Song Woo Bin” (Soujiro and Akira in the original Japanese version) will be played by talent Kim Bum and boy band T-Max’s Kim Jun.

“Hana Yori Dango” is about a poor, but bright high school student named “Tsukushi” who attends an exclusive high school where only the rich go. She ends up having encounters with the bachelor F4 and experiences love and friendship in his romance manga. It has been running for 11 years in Japan with 36 books. The books have sold 5.8 million copies to date (I’m not 100% on the number…)

The manga has been translated into English, French, and Spanish with 14 other languages translated and the manga has been made into a drama in Japan and Taiwan. The actors cast as the F4 in both versions of the drama have been skyrocketed into fame and there has been a lot of interest in who the Korean cast of the F4 would be because of this trend.

The Korean version of Boys Over Flowers will begin in December and will have 24 episodes.
