Adriano Celentano — Azzurro (Blue)


Looking for summer all year round
but it appears suddenly.
She left for the beaches
so I stuck in the city,
feel a hiss over the roofs
an airplane that goes away.

the afternoon is too blue
and too long for me.
I realize my resources fade away,
without you,
and so I nearly
took the ride
and drove, I drove to you,
but the course of my
desires go backwards.

It seems like the oratory,
with lots of sun, so many years ago.
Those sundays alone
in a courtyard, a walk …
I am bored most of the time,
not even a priest to chat …

the afternoon is too blue
and too long for me.
I realize my resources fade away,
without you,
and so I nearly took the ride
and drove, I drove to you,
but the course of my
desires go backwards.

25日、映画界によるとパク・シフが女優ユン・ウネと共に主演を務めた映画「After Love」の公開が延期されたという。

ある映画関係者は「『After Love』の公開が当初のことし下半期から来年に延期された。まだ正確な公開日も出ていない状況」と伝えた。「After Love」はことし2月にクランクアップした。

韓中合作映画「After Love」はパク・シフのスクリーンカムバック作で、彼は劇中、航空会社に勤務する元パイロットのキム・ソンジュン役を引き受け、ユン・ウネとカップルを演じた。ユン・ウネが最近、中国のバラエティ番組で披露した衣装デザイン盗作問題で騒動に発展しており、この映画の公開も非常に関心を集めていた。日韓中の同時公開を目標にしている。

NH to be PSH’s comeback work

There were several Korean news reports about this topic yesterday afternoon (November 25, 2015).

They all said PSH’s movie with Yoon Eun Hye, the Korean/Chinese/Japanese joint-venture “Love After Love”, which was scheduled to be released simultaneously in all 3 countries in the second half of 2015, has been postponed to next year, but the release date in 2016 has not been confirmed.

LAL was supposed to be PSH’s comeback work, but now it looks like the OCN drama “Neighborhood Hero” which PSH is currently shooting would become his comeback work.  PSH plays a former secret agent in NH, a man who turns to fighting evil forces in his neighborhood.

PSH’s comeback to the Korean entertainment world has been attracting a lot of attention, and now he will first return through TV rather than the big screen.  “Neighborhood Hero” will air in January 2016.



[단독] 박시후, 윤은혜와 찍은 영화 개봉 연기..복귀작 드라마로

[OSEN=최나영 기자] 배우 박시후의 복귀작이 드라마가 될 전망이다.

25일 영화계에 따르면 박시후가 윤은혜와 함께 주연을 맡은 영화 ‘사랑후애(愛)'(감독 어일선, 제작 리옌엔터테인먼트)의 개봉이 연기 됐다.

한 영화 관계자는 “‘사랑후애’의 개봉이 당초 올 하반기에서 내년으로 연기됐다. 아직 정확한 개봉일 역시 나오지 않은 상황”이라고 전했다. ‘사랑후애’는 지난 2월 크랭크업 했다.

한중합작영화 ‘사랑후애’는 박시후의 스크린 컴백작으로, 그는 극 중 항공사에 근무하는 전직 조종사 김성준 역을 맡아 윤은혜와 커플 호흡을 맞췄다. 윤은혜가 최근 중국 예능프로그램에서 선보인 의상 디자인 표절 논란으로 시끄러웠기에 이 영화의 개봉 역시 비상한 관심을 모았던 바다. 한중일 동시 개봉을 목표로 하고 있다.

이로써 박시후의 컴백작은 OCN ‘동네의 영웅'(가제/ 극본 김관후, 연출 곽정환)으로 확정됐다.

‘동네의 영웅’은 tvN ‘빠스껫볼’, KBS ‘추노’, ‘한성별곡’ 등을 만든 곽정환 감독이 오랜기간 기획한 작품으로, 상처받은 전직 블랙요원이 경찰을 꿈꾸는 비정규직 청년을 만나 그를 비밀요원으로 성장시키며 악에 맞서 싸우는 ‘생활밀착형 첩보 드라마’다. 박시후는 극 중 전직 비밀요원 ‘백시윤’으로 분해, 동네 영웅으로서의 매력을 뽐낼 예정이다. 내년 1월 첫 방송을 앞두고 있다. /

To our Godlike idol


There is a current Chinese saying:
Translation: “Not afraid of Godlike opponents, only afraid of pig-like team-mates”
meaning: Your success (or failure) does not necessarily depend on the strength of your opponents/rivals, but also on the strength (or weakness) of your own team.

In an earlier post 神級偶像, 豬的團隊, we called PSH 神級偶像, that is, Godlike idol.  We think PSH is nonpareil in the entire Korean entertainment world.  No other actor can hold a candle to him.  In a field saturated with 小鮮肉 (little fresh meat = very young artists – new, green, raw), which spring up by the dozen practically every month in Korea, PSH can still hold his own and is in a class by himself.

Every time PSH lands in the last 10 of a voting contest — the elimination kind — we feel elated, of course, but also a little embarrassed because he is invariably the oldest of the lot.  The other finalists are all 10, even 20, years younger than he.  So?  He’s a late bloomer.  Never forget it took him 10 long, hard years to gain recognition in the Korean entertainment world.

We remember when PSH was still with EYAGI, even though he was the management agency’s No.1 actor, we felt they’re not managing his career properly, so that he’s not getting as many roles to showcase his acting talents as he should have.  In his last year with EYAGI, they were practically “freezing” him in 2012 (possibly because of a contractual dispute.)  We suspect EYAGI was trying to force PSH to re-sign on their terms.

When PSH went on the catwalk for Yumi Katsura’s wedding fashion in Tokyo in February 2012, we were very gratified he posted some photos of himself on the show on Twitter — between shows.  And then (delayed reaction) we were shocked and outraged.  PSH was doing 3 shows in one day, and he had to post photos on the web by himself?!  What was his management agency for?

For the rest of 2012, EYAGI just let PSH idle his time away.  The Chinese project “Poor Boy Makes It Rich” came to nothing.  The music video in Thailand was aborted halfway.  We cursed EYAGI for their ineptitude.  How come they could not cast PSH in a Korean drama?

It wasn’t until December 2012 that PSH got to star in “Cheongdam-dong Alice” which was such a resounding success.  Just when it looked like nothing could stop him from reaching his pinnacle as an actor, that terrible incident happened on Valentine night, 2013.  If EYAGI’s H really did what many people thought he did to ruin PSH (because he would not renew his contract), he is not a pig (stupid) but a poisonous snake (dangerous, treacherous).  He took away 3 years of PSH’s life and set back his career by 10 years.

We admire so much PSH’s resilience and courage and his never-say-die attitude.  We were so happy when he set up his own management agency Hoo Factory.  Now at long last he did not have to be beholden to any boss; he could do what he wanted.  But then a company is only as good as its staff, and when it’s small and inexperienced and does not have clout, it won’t make much headway in Korea.

So they were wise to look elsewhere, to find an oblique way for PSH to make his comeback in Korea — making movies in China (whatever happened to LAL?), holding fan meetings in Japan and China (oops! that one was aborted in late 2014) …. The CFM eventually materialized as the Shanghai Fan Meeting in February 2015, but from all reports, it left much to be desired.  NOT PSH’s performance, which was always top-notch, but the organization and logistics management.

Fast forward to November 2015.  Well, we don’t even want to mention that event.  We would just like to say (what we’ve said more than once before) that if PSH really wants to break into the China market in a big way, he must hire a good, reputable Chinese agent.  Every country has its own culture and its own way of doing business.  Some people say it’s very difficult to do business in China, that you need connections, but someone we know (who’s been doing business in China for close to 20 years) tells us that doing business in China is like doing business anywhere in the world, that you need to build up mutual respect and trust, and of course, negotiate with your eyes wide open and read all the fine print on the contract.  It is NOT true that they cheat or take advantage of you, he says, more often than not it’s give-and-take.  They’re willing to pay big money if you’re worth it, but of course, it’s business and they expect to make money.

PSH may be Godlike and awe-inspiring in his acting (we’ve said more than once he’s the best Korean actor of his generation), but if he is surrounded by second-rate people, he is bound to be bogged down.  In the course of shooting “Neighborhood Hero”, there’s not a single photo posted by HF or PSH’s official websites.  We had to go to his co-stars’ Twitter/Instagram/Facebook to find the crumbs.  We wish to make his long-awaited return to Korean drama a trail of blazing glory, but his associates are not helping at all.

Just saw this on the Weibo of Chinese model Jadie who wrote on November 21:

“Saw my CF with Park Si Hoo in Korea”


This is a Chinese posting on a Chinese website.  Are the Koreans not aware of this PSH CF?  Some Chinese fans discovered the shop selling this brand a while ago and they even posted the address (which we posted earlier).  We would have thought his Korean fans would have descended on the shop in droves and cleaned out everything from the shelves (as the Chinese fans did with PSH’s skincare products), but nothing?

Is PSH fighting a one-man battle?  Of course not!  We are here every day (even in the midst of overwhelming personal problems) to cheer him on.  We want to make sure he makes his comeback in style, and when he is in his rightful place again, we can call it a day.  But there’s only so much (or so little) that we can do.  We call upon his compatriots and especially those in an official capacity to do their utmost for this peerless actor.  Because HE’S WORTH IT!

Something old….


A 5-year-old MV using old PSH photos, created by a Chinese fan (probably ex-fan by now.)

You may not have seen some of these photos before, or may not remember you have seen them before.

Consider this revision if you’re an old fan, and initiation if you’re new.  Enjoy!
