Jun Kwang Ryul
Jun Kwang Ryul (Jeon Gwang Ryul/Jeon Kwang-Leol/전광렬) was born Febuary 11, 1959. Zodiac sign: Aries. It's very interesting to know that most Korean Actors have degrees from the University.
He had always been great with every drama that his in. He easily cries, unknowingly, like a baby. What I cannot understand is when the directors miss his tears before they fall down. It makes you wonder if it was his or if it was fake.
He can be bad or good, but he is best as a father. I love his role in "Baker King, Kim Tak Gu." I thought he won't be able to portray historical or periodic dramas but he proved me wrong in "The King and I."
I thought his bow ties were just there as part of his character in dramas, it seems that he loves them too. His fashion sense is that strong, and carries it well.

Lee Min Ho
Famous Young Korean Actor
Lee Minho (이민호) was born on June 22, 1987. He is an accomplished actor, singer, and product endorser. He was first introduced in the Philippines under the drama "Boys Over Flowers." Since then, fans were over him, from the Philippines, at least.
It seems that even though he is already Lee Min ho, some of his dramas are not rating that much, until Heirs. He had won many awards as well. He have impressive list of product endorsements. And every time I see him on TV, his stance is that of a model. He's very famous that he is known in the World

Kim Junho (Kim Joon Ho/Charlie Kim/김준호) is a comedian or gagman -- that's how they call them. Born on December 25, 1975. He's in a lot of variety shows, and mind you, game shows.
I do not understand the move to remove him from 2 days and 1 night when he lost everything. Besides, without him, the show will really be boring. He take all the hits and blame, he even purposely loose, for laughs. He's the only reason why I was enticed to watch 2 days and 1 night. His devious ways and his diverse hats.
He was promoting Korean Comedy (k-comedy) and set up Busan International Festival, let's see until when, now that his credibility seems depleted.
He would wear expensive clothes and call them fashion. His stylist is making a good job though, not everybody can pull off a fashion if you don't like it. I like him wearing eyeglasses as well. It frames his face and make it more handsome.
His family lives in the Philippines, and there are no news that they visit each other. I wonder if he improves his English by talking with his kids, if he have one.
With controversies and obstacles on his professional life, he still commit to them with enthusiasm. He always remind me that when you fall, stand and move on.

Gag Concert on KBS
I thought he really sang well here. With at least 2 flats. But when you hear what the other artist and host says, he was off and did not harmonize with Bada. Sad. I still see it cute though.

Choi Min Sik
Choi Min Sik (최민식) is a movie actor. Born on January 22, 1962. A movie superstar, and recognized for those works.
I saw some of his films and they are somewhat deviated to hard acting. He is the type of actor that channels his character and come out effectively. Either you hate him or you praise him.
He was also in the movie Lucy, a Hollywood production. He's the Boss of a Gang that planted drugs into Lucy's (Scarlett Johansson) body.

Dara's Interview in the Philippines
Dara (Sandara Park/박산다라) is a member of the singing idol 2Ne1. Born on Novermber 12, 1984. Grow up in the Philippines at age 10, so she speaks Tagalog and the English Language.
Before she was popular in Korea, she was a successful actress in the Philippines. She was known as Sandara Park -- the Pambansang Krung-krung ng Pilipinas. When she landed in Korea, she became a superstar. She is now a product endorser, model, actress, and a singer. And she probably wouldn't be able to achieve such high status if she stayed in the Philippines. Still, the Filipinos love her and support her every show.
Together with 2ne1, they sang "I don't care." One of the cause of chaos in "Smile, You" drama. Watching 2ne1 and Dara on YouTube is so much fun.

Lee Yeon Bok
Lee Yeon Bok (리 연 복) started off learning how to cook and delivering foods. He learned cooking in China then moved to Korea to start his own restaurant. He started with traditional Chinese Cuisines but it did not fair well. He then started cooking Korean foods and that's where he prospered. He believes that the taste pool people and not traditions anymore.
He is one of the six(6) Chefs of 'Please take care of your Refrigerator (Fridge),' a cooking show on JTBC. They cook leftovers in 15 minutes time -- showing not to waste left over foods and projected to people who have no time in cooking.
He had become the Chinese Cuisine expert. Unlike most Chefs, he uses only a number of knives, if not one. He have styles as well that make other people curious because he work with noise.
