It has been confirmed by Trophy Entertainment agency that Actress Kim Ah Joong has been cast as the heroine in a U.S.-China joint production film.
Kim Ah Joong is back in the spotlight after a 2 year hiatus from her success with the heavyweight film, “200 Pound Beauty.” The actress is set to star in a new movie called “29 Years,” based on the faction (fiction + fact) comic or “man-hwa”, “26 years” by Kang Pool. “26 years” tells the tale of the Gwangju Democratization Movement in the 1980’s under Chun Do-hwan’s presidency.
Kim Ah Joong will take the role of a woman who hooks up with a good-for-nothing , (played by Ryu Seung Bum) to plot the assassination of Korea’s president after having lost her father in the Gwangju massacre.
“29 years” is expected to be released in 2009-or exactly 29 years since the Gwangju massacre. Jin Goo of ”All In” and Byeon Hee-bong from the movie, ”The Host” also join the cast.
Kim A-joong should have used haircare products that she endorsed to tame her flyaways.
Despite the hush hush nature of the wedding details, the press sniffed out the location and time of Song Il-gook’s (37) wedding. Befitting the image of a Korean prince, the Jumong actor wed Jung Seung-yeon (32) in a gorgeous traditional ceremony at the Vista Hall in Sheraton Walker Hill on March 16th, 2008.
There are very few pictures released to the public of the new bride. To avoid the glare of the cameras, the low-key bride remained in her room until the start of the ceremony. (Generally, brides are displayed in ‘bridal waiting rooms” )
Congratulations to the newlyweds
After her hit movie 200lb Beauty, endorsements for Pantene Shampoo and hitting the red carpet at major award shows, Kim A-joong has taken another step to represent the face for ETN (Entertainment Television Network) in Korea. Now that’s a huge step in her career.
Is she another celeb so desperate for exposure that she has to resort to being the face of a celebrity TV channel? Are there no other celebrities to report on?
The plastic fantastic contender’s mug will be seen on the ETN channel and ETN internet site (in Korean) in 2008 January.

Red Carpet Trail: Pusan International Film Festival Part IV
With each awards show, the length of the skirts seems to be getting shorter and shorter. And this time, 2007 Best Dresser award winner Han Hyo-ju gives us a glimpse of what’s underneath all that glam.
While flimsy micro minis were worn by some, other female stars stuck it out with longer lengths. Overall, showing off skin was de rigeur despite the freezing temperatures. It’s at times like this, it’s good to be a guy and fully clothed.
Winner of the Grand Prix for the 2007 Golden Disk Awards went to SG Wannabe. Two-timer Ivy also picked up an award for the Best Digital Sound.
