Today (July 7) is Tanabata in Japan.
Tanabata (七夕, meaning “Evening of the seventh”), also known as the Star Festival, is a Japanese festival originating from the Chinese Qixi Festival. It celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively). According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar.
This video, made in 2014, introduces this festival (commentary is in English), and PSH’s Japanese fans have created these visuals to celebrate Tanabata.

There’s a recent news report that partly touched on “Neighborhood Hero” that is worth mentioning. We have only singled out those sentences that are worth translating.

◆ Prestigious dramas of OCN, showcasing colorful genre
We will just paraphrase: First to appear in 2016 is the OCN drama “Neighborhood Hero” in which actor Park Si Hoo excelled in a role that was a synergy of skillful action and superb acting.
The drama boasts of movie qualities and offers a variety of attractions, but the fact that it was shown at 11 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday meant its poor ratings were unavoidable.

◆장르물의 명가 OCN, 색깔 만큼은 확실히 보여줬다
먼저 2016년 OCN 드라마 첫 주자로 나선 ‘동네의 영웅’은 ‘생활 밀착형 첩보물’을 표방했다. 앞서 드라마 ‘추노’로 액션물에서 두각을 보인 곽정환 감독의 연출력과 배우 박시후의 액션 연기가 시너지 효과를 내며 액션물로서는 손색 없는 작품이라는 평을 받았다.
여기에 영화 못지않은 고퀄리티 영상과 깨알 같은 웃음 코드로 다양한 볼거리를 제공했다. 시청률 면에서는 아쉬운 성적을 남겼지만, 일요일 밤 11시에 방송된다는 점을 고려하면 저조한 시청률은 어쩔 수 없는 부분이었다.
‘동네의 영웅’과 ‘뱀파이어 탐정’으로 시청률 부진에 시달려야 했던 OCN이었지만, 각 작품마다 뚜렷한 색깔을 보여주며 장르물의 명가라는 타이틀 방어에는 성공했다.

You all know our favorite PSH drama is “Family Honor”. We’ve been following the career and life of all the major players. We’re very happy Dan Ah (Yoon Jung Hee) got married last year and are still waiting for our PSH to settle down.
The actor who played the younger twin brother of Dan Ah (Kim Seong Min) has been in trouble for several years (ever since FH ended in 2010, in fact) — drugs. He was sentenced to 2 1/2 years jail in 2011, reduced to 4 years probation on appeal. But he violated his probation in 2015 and was jailed for 10 months, only just released in January 2016.
On June 24, 2016, Kim Seong Min had a row with his wife and hung himself with a necktie after she left the house with her son (from a previous marriage). He was taken to hospital in a coma and has just been declared brain dead in the early hours of June 26.

Actually this competition ended in May 2016. We haven’t been following voting much lately, but better late than never.
The competition was conducted by a Chinese website.
They first had TOP 10 ASIAN ACTORS and TOP 10 ASIAN ACTRESSES, and then they mixed the voting and ended up with TOP 10 ASIAN ACTORS/ACTRESSES. That is why the final TOP 10 is a mixture of actors and actresses — from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Korea.
The 2 TOP ACTORS are from Hong Kong and China respectively. There are 7 Korean actors (4 men and 3 women) in the Top 20.
PSH is ranked #8 (#3 among the Korean men) which is quite an achievement, considering his popularity is all based on past works. The article below focuses entirely on PSH’s works up to “Confession of Murder”.
