[The Stars: Then & Now] Sept. 16, 2011: Kim Hyun Joong Was Looking Good, Hyuna Charmed Japan, G-Dragon Picked Favorites and More
Hope we haven’t lost anyone yet as we rewind to one year ago in the world of Korean entertainment.
Today, we travel back in time to September 16, 2011, when one hallyu star and one girl group member were getting face time in Japan. Meanwhile, in the world of acting, one actress was cast in what would become one of the hottest dramas of 2011, and another starlet was named G-Dragon’s favorite fashionista.
Kim Hyun Joong heat up Japan
Just a year ago, hallyu star Kim Hyun Joong was named the new face of Japanese clothing brand Heatfact.
That may have been a year ago, but Kim Hyun Joong is still on fire today.
Coincidentally, Kim Hyun Joong has been heating up the music charts all summer long with his latest release in Japan Heat.
You know you’re hot when real fireworks are involved.
Haha loved on Yoo Jae Suk
Kim Hyun Joong wasn’t the only one feeling the heat, as Haha was warming up to Yoo Jae Suk last year.
If anyone knows how to boost Yoo Jae Suk’s ego, it’s Haha, and the funnyman did hold back on expressing his admiration for the MC on KBS’ Happy Together.
But Haha can’t be showing his affection for just anyone now—seeing as he’s going to be a married man
We still can’t get over the fact that our favorite big kid is taking the plunge, but we all have to grow up sooner or later, right?
4minute’s Hyuna charmed Japan
Japanese fans confirmed 4minute member Hyuna’s popularity by naming her the most charming Cube girl in a survey among the fans in the country.
We couldn’t quite get over the weirdly specific title, but it was a compliment nonetheless, as Hyuna beat out her fellow 4minute members and sexy songstress G.Na.
In case you were wondering, Hyuna is still her charming self today. Or at least, last we checked.
Flower Boy Ramen Shop took off
We’re all about tvN’s Reply 1997 these days, but last year, another tvN drama was driving us crazy: Flower Boy Ramen Shop.
If Reply 1997 is tugging at our H.O.T. fan girl heartstrings right now, Flower Boy Ramen Shop had us riled up over…the hot boys.
But the drama would not have been the same without actress Lee Chung Ah, who was cast in the drama around this time last year.
TvN has been on a roll with their dramas!
G-Dragon named names
Big Bang leader G-Dragon is a one-of-a-kind trendsetter when it comes to his music and clothes, but who did he deem his favorite fashionista?
None other than actress Kim Min Hee, and we couldn’t agree more.
The stylish actress can pull off a potato sack, that’s for sure, but what about these signature G-Dragon hairstyles?
We have more blast from the past star news coming your way, so stay tuned!
