A seven-minute Korean trailer for Athena: Goddess of War. The spy-action drama is a spin-off of 2009 hit IRIS; it’s widely tipped as one of the most anticipated Korean dramas of the year. The teaser seems rather promising…
Korean drama series Athena, spin-off of last year’s award winning spy-action flick IRIS, has started filming. Some promotional stills of the main cast – i.e. Jung Woo-sung, Su Ae, Cha Seung-won, Lee Ji-ah, Kim Min-jong and Choi Si-won – have been released to kick start the hype.
Dozen of Korean stars attended the Gucci 0809 FW Collection in Korea show in Seoul on August 7. As far as I could recall, only Andre Kim could pull a more glamorous cast for a fashion show in Korea…
Korean actress Lee Ji-ah was rush to the hospital on Friday (Aug 1) while filming a water scene for “Beethoven Virus” in Gyeonggi-do when she suddenly complained of breathing difficulties. She is now discharged and recuperates at home.
Initial diagnosis showed that she might have developed hypothermia and meningitis, which was probably due to her being submerged in the chilly water for almost 20 hours in the past two days shooting the promotional posters and a underwater scene for the drama. [via Coolsmurf]
Ji-ah, have some good rest and get well soon.
