DBSK and Suju Audition For SBS's New Drama "Learning God"

“Learning God,” a new drama on SBS, has raised much curiosity about who will be cast.
FT Island’s Lee Hong Ki is thought to be the most likely main character, but seeing as the main character has not been revealed even now, there are rumours of TVXQ, SJ, FT Island, SS501, and such singers auditioning. “Learning God’s” producer said in a phone interview the other day, “We’re in the process of auditioning people, and we plan to cast idol group members in their late teens or early twenties. We will decide on the main character after auditioning them.” Said PD also mentioned, “Although idol group members can become the lead character and raise much gossip, what’s more important is their acting abilities. They need to pass a vigorous audition and observation of their acting skills before we can decide.”

The actors in “Boys Prettier than Flowers” are raising talk as well, since they are also rumoured to be idol group members who are just as popular.

Jae Joong's first ever rap is featured in the song Wrong Number off DBSK's comeback album Mirotic.

Hangeng Caught Smoking! (O.O)

Newly found pictures of Super Junior member Han Geng has stirred up concern and attention from netizens.

According to the poster of the pictures, they claim the supposed innocent and gentleman Han Geng was smoking "like a pro smoker".

The pictures were "taken" from a diner where Han Geng was seen with his friends.

2008年9月17日,北京,近日,午夜12点30分左右,Super Junior-M 队长韩庚偕同助理与两名神秘女子现身东三环某餐馆用餐,韩庚等人吃的狼吞虎咽,并且多次补点食物,看来之前一定是经历了大的运动量活动所致。饭后几个人一边聊天一边抽烟,韩庚叼烟的动作十分熟练老道,与以往亮相于公众场合健康乖巧的优质偶像判若两人,就连他对面的两位美女也在潇洒的吞云吐雾。


Brief translation: SJ-M's Han Kyung was seen with his assistant and two mystery girls at dinner in Beijing on 09.17. They appeared to be extra hungry because everyone ate a lot and they kept ordering more food. After their meals, everyone sat around, talked and enjoyed a few cigarettes, the way Han Kyung was smoking indicated that he's a "pro" smoker (meaning you can tell he's been smoking for years); Han Kyung seemed like a totally different person from the healthy sunny boy that we're used to seeing.

Han Kyung paid the bill around 4 am and left. Report is convinced that one of the girls is Chinese actress Niu Meng
