Aaaaaaand, that right there is why I’m watching this movie. As if I needed any other incentive, right? The first posters, teasers, and stills for swimming movie No Breathing are out, and they don’t disappoint — Lee Jong-seok (I Hear Your Voice) and Seo In-gook (Master’s Sun) lead a cast of pretty boys stripping down and getting wet. FOR THE SWIMMING. The swimming! What were you thinking? Lee Jong-seok plays the perfect star athlete golden boy on his way to becoming a national swimmer, while Seo In-gook plays the dark horse, the naturally gifted swimmer who has for some reason stopped competing altogether. They were friends and rivals even as boys, and always swam together when they were young. But one day Seo In-gook runs away from everything and becomes a shut-in. He eventually ends up transferring schools where he comes face to face with his old rival and begins to swim again. But whatever that mysterious backstory is, it keeps him from competing directly with Lee Jong-seok. Lee Jong-seok’s character is already a national star, known as Korea’s Marine Boy (what they actually call gold medalist Park Tae-hwan in real life). But he was stripped of his spot on the national team for an undisclosed incident, and so he goes back to square one to train again, which is where he meets ex-friend and rival Seo In-gook. SNSD’s Yuri plays the love interest, who was friends with both boys as children. Half-nekkid Lee Jong-seok and Seo In-gook aside, I am actually looking forward to the story itself, because I just never tire of a good underdog sports movie, and because I know it’s written by the screenwriter of The Gift of Room 7 and Korea. Plus, with a good rivalry and bromance at the center of it — not to mention abs — what’s not to love? No Breathing hits theaters October 31. ---------------------------------------------------------------- I want to watch this! Two of my favorite actors and great actors of this generation: Lee Jong Suk and Seo In Guk. I got to live them because of their separate dramas, LJS in School 2013 and I Hear Your Voice and SIG in Reply 1997 and Master's Sun....plus, we will see 'six pack abs' overload and a glimpse to Davao, one of the beautiful places in the Philippines! Wow! I can say that this is a must watch movie of this year. HAHA. Congratulations to the whole staff and crew of this movie. :)

'Train to Busan' as Critique of Korean Society
I still haven't been able to see Train to Busan for myself, but I found this article on NPR to be really interesting! It doesn't ruin any plot points (other than the fact that there is a zombie apocalypse which I'm pretty sure we could gather from the trailer...) According to the article: Without giving too much of the story away, the film blames corporate callousness for the death toll. The government covers up the truth — or is largely absent. And the crew? Rather than rescue passengers, it follows the wishes of a businessman. Sewol Ferry Reference: These themes are particularly resonant in South Korea, which in 2014 faced national tragedy after 300 people, mostly teenagers, died when a ferry overturned in the sea. Investigators found the ferry's corporate owners overloaded it to save money. And the captain and crew got into lifeboats without rescuing passengers. News media, toeing the government line, originally reported that everyone survived, blamed rescuers for not working hard enough (when in reality the government refused to let them go into the water and rescue the children), etc. The Korean president's whereabouts on that day are still unexplained. Then the MERS Outbreak: Last year, as Middle East respiratory syndrome, or MERS, spread in South Korea, the government wouldn't share key information about where patients were being treated, where it started, and how officials would contain the outbreak. The government refused to communicate with the public, so the Seoul mayor had to go against the president and form his OWN plan to fix the problem. As a result, he's now in the running for next president (since Koreans have lost all respect or trust in the current pres) You can read the full piece by NPR right HERE. Has anyone seen this yet?!

Jun Woo rejects Hui Yeong’s kindness as Hui Yeong’s popularity and influence intimidate him. When an incident breaks out, Jun Woo is falsely accused of stealing a watch. Everyone thinks Jun Woo is the culprit, and Hui Yeong useshis influence among his peers to fuel this rumor. Meanwhile, Soo Bin has been watching Jun Woo all this time. She sees a different side to Jun Woo than the one that other people see, as she notices his cute, goofy streak and innocent smile. Everyone knows that Hui Yeong has a crush on her, but it’s the quiet and attentive Jun Woo that Soo Bin finds herself gravitating towards. Soo Bin’s warmth opens up the softest part of Jun Woo’s heart, and he decides to break out of his shell. As the seasons change, will these youths also turn over a new leaf? "At Eighteen" captures the innocence of first love as these eighteen-year-old teens between immature and innocent.

SNSD's Expensive Outfits in "Lion Heart" MV
Source: Soompi What did you guys think of Girls’ Generation’s “Lion Heart” MV? Although it is not the best song ever, the tune was catchy enough. Take a look into the fashion! From Versace to Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana to Valentino, pretty much all the heavy-hitting designers were enlisted for this video. In the first dance scene, every member wore an outfit from Versace’s RTW Spring 2015 collection. This was a nice choice because there’s a lot of pink in that collection and the complementing designs tie in everyone visually. YoonA in Versace Greca Key Illusion Dress, on sale for $1,040. Next, Seohyun in Versace optical chain print shift dress, on sale for $697 and Tiffany in Versace contrast stripe dress, on sale for $743 Sooyoung in Versace silk cropped trousers, $775, and sleeveless crop top, $850 (sold out) Yuri in Versace Greca key miniskirt, on sale for $299, and sleeveless crop top, $850 (sold out) Sunny in Versace chain printed techno duchesse dress, on sale for $1,405 For the date scenes, some members wore dresses from the Dolce and Gabbana Fall 2015 collection. The oversized rose print, combined with classic waves and eye-catching earrings, make the perfect looks for a romantic date! Seohyun in Dolce and Gabbana rose print fitted dress, $2,945 Sooyoung in Dolce and Gabbana floral-printed silk chiffon blouse, $1,245, and printed pencil skirt, $559 Taeyeon in Dolce and Gabbana “Majolica” print dress, $1,995 YoonA in Dolce and Gabbana embroidered floral lace dress, $2,737 It wasn’t all Versace and Dolce and Gabbana, though. Some members turned to different high-end designers! Hyoyeon in Valentino “Primavera” print dress, $7,900 Sunny in Valentino crepe couture and heavy lace dress, $4,290 Sooyoung in Gucci zig-zag print lurex dress, $5,800. (You may remember that Jun Ji Hyun wore an evening gown with the same fabric to the Cannes gala earlier this year.) Tiffany in Gucci RTW Fall 2015 YoonA in Chloe wool crepe trousers, $1,167, and Chloe silk blouse, $953 Even though we didn’t feature all the outfits in the video, the looks we did cover here come out to approximately $44,000. However, it seems safe to guess that SM Entertainment did not actually have to buy any of these outfits — we all know that borrowing is the name of the game when it comes to designers and celebrities. What did you think of the looks in this video? Let me know ^^
Week in Fashion: Song Ji Hyo, Lee Jong Suk, Lee Min Ho, and Yuri
The fashion highlight of the week may have been G-Dragon and Taeyang at Paris Fashion Week, but here in Seoul, the premieres of the drama “Emergency Couple” and the movies “Boiling Youth” and “Miss Granny” provided ample opportunity for red carpet highlights. Let’s take a look at some of the celebrities and their outfits! Song Ji Hyo Although Song Ji Hyo looks beautiful even in her “Running Man” tracksuits and ski jackets, she went girly for the “Emergency Couple” premiere, wearing a lace dress from designer Maria Lucia Hohan. The actress accessorized with a bow belt and nude “Bianca” pumps from Christian Louboutin. If the dress looks familiar, it’s because similar styles have been worn by several American stars. A black version of the same “Malika” dress was worn by the dancer Dita Von Teese, while lace dresses from the same designer were previously worn by Taylor Swift and Rachel McAdams. song ji hyo Song Ji Hyo at premiere of “Emergency Couple” dr-1376492747834 “Malika” dress by Maria Lucia Hohan christianlouboutin-bianca-1100024_pk20_1_1200x1200_3 “Bianca” pumps by Christian Louboutin Lee Jong Suk At the premiere of his new movie, “Boiling Youth,” Lee Jong Suk looked fashion-forward in a shocking pink overcoat from Mugler’s Fall 2013 menswear collection. (Question: Do you think he intentionally chose it to match with the backdrop?) The runway version was paired with matching pink slacks, but Lee Jong Suk kept it simple with a black turtleneck and skinny pants. Wise choice! lee jong suk 2lee jong suk Lee Jong Suk at premiere of “Boiling Youth” lee jong suk thierry mugler Mugler Fall 2013 Menswear Lee Min Ho Lee Min Ho turned up at the same premiere in a coat from Valentino’s Fall 2013 menswear collection.
