PSH is the winner again in Stage 275 of #8 voting site (that ended at midnight 2015.03.14) — 96th in a row! PSH continues to set the record of MOST CONTINUOUS WINS for this site, now exceeding BYJ’s by 42. He received 20,352,578 votes, 12+ million votes more than 2nd place No Min Woo.
No Min Woo is back! He is now No.2 16 times, the most ever to PSH’s No.1. What can we say? We salute his fans for being so persistent. Against any other actor, he could have won. But against PSH and his fans, he doesn’t stand a chance.
This is the 96th week in a row PSH has won this competition. Last 94 times he defeated Jang Geun Suk x 5, Kim Hee Chul x 4, Moon Geun Young, G-Dragon x 4, Kim Hyun Joong x 5, Wu Yi Fan (Kris) x 14, Oh Se Hun x 12, So Ji Sub, Hwang Ji Tao, Lee Min Ho x 13, Lee Jun Ki, Kim Soo Hyun x 13, Lee Jong Suk, Rain, Mayu Watanabe x 2, and No Min Woo x 16.
PSH’s cumulative votes are 1,229,745,723! – now 61 million more than the ex-all-time winner BYJ (Stages 180 to 275 – Just count the gold cups – 96 now!) Bae Yong Jun’s record of continuous wins were set over a period of 2 years (at that time the competition was held every 2 weeks). This is our next target — We want to make sure PSH wins 108 in a row (and beyond!)
Every week is a new challenge, and new challengers continue to emerge. Don’t let up. Fighting!

You all know PSH’s birthday is coming up next month – April 3 – when he’ll reach the ripe old age of 37 (38 by Korean reckoning).
We don’t have the time or energy to organize a birthday present for him, but we’d still like to celebrate the event.
We know PSH has fans all over the world who all wish him well.
How about putting those good wishes in writing or a MV or a design or whatever.
There is no restriction on the format. Just put your love for the man into whatever you wish to convey it. Feel free to use your native language (as long as we can use Google Translate to see what it is about^^)
We have a prize for the winner — the PSH 2014 JFM Nagoya DVD (with a 64-page photo album).
If you organize a fans meeting in your country (like what limparedit did in Hungary), we will send you 2 CDs of PSH’s (his debut single in Japan) for lucky draw at the get-together.
Please mail entries to: email@example.com and be sure to include your Username and Country.
If you’re feeling particularly creative, you may send in as many entries as you like.
DEADLINE: March 23, 2015 (not much time, so put on your thinking cap NOW!)

You may rememberthat we had a competition for Christmas 2014, with PSH’s 2014 Japan Fan Meeting DVD as the grand prize. The winner was Hungary’s limparedit who promised to hold a Hungarian Fans’ Meeting so they could get together to watch the DVD. She’s as good as her word, and the following is her report (translated by her compatriot Somos Hajni.)
FYI – Hungary is currently No.13 on our list of PSH countries (according to hit rate on our site statistics.)
In PSH-fever – 21st February, 2015
I woke up early in the morning, I couldn’t sleep. My head was full of questions: Did we prepare everything? Will everything be all right? Will everyone come? Have I left anything at home? Will the place of the meeting be good enough? I live 100 km from Budapest (the place of the meeting). Will I be there in time? Will my friend Hajni wait for me at the agreed place? I was hoping that there wouldn’t be any trouble during the trip. I just sat in the car quietly. My thoughts were wandering; my heart was beating in my throat. I was so excited, as if PSH was waiting for me. During the trip I was listening to his songs, as always.
At last I arrived, almost at the same time as Hajni and Kata — three friends who met because of our adoration of PSH. Arriving at the place, I saw that Hajni had chosen a perfect place, a Korean karaoke bar.
We had to be very fast with the preparation because the fans were arriving one after another. In the beginning we had a little technical problem, but fortunately we got ready in time, so the show could start. PSH was beautiful in that white suit; everyone watched him, completely fascinated.
During the show we greeted each other and introduced ourselves. There were 20 participants. (Unfortunately many fans couldn’t come to the meeting because of the distance, and other reasons.)
The introduction took long, so we became very hungry and thirsty. The delicious foods and drinks were served. We ate ramen, Korean waffles, and Korean shrimp-flavored crackers, and of course we tasted some soju. Our friend Zsuzsa, who travelled 200 km to come to the meeting, brought us some Hungarian delicacy: self-made cakes and pálinka (pálinka is a traditional fruit brandy in Hungary).
We were eating, drinking and talking; meanwhile PSH was singing in his warm voice. When he started the song of CDDA, the air froze. We didn’t care about the foods and drinks or anything else; we only paid attention to him.
Fortunately, a little later Hajni called for a little break. During the break, we gave our presents to each other. I was glad to get these amazing gifts: a mouse pad, a CD with a video about ENISHI’s photoshooting in L.A. (2013), two bookmarkers, an autographed photo, a fridge magnet, and the Hungarian translation of the song “For you”.
The second DVD started. Hajni distributed the worksheets which she made, and the competition started. Who knows more about PSH? The quiz wasn’t so hard for me – of course – but one of the tasks was a little bit puzzling. But finally I reached the first place, and I shared it with my friend Zsuzsa who collected the same number of points as me. Hajni made us a Certificate of Merit with the signature of PSH. (Oh…a real autograph from PSH…it would be so awesome! I hope we will meet him when he has a worldwide tour in the future!)
Unfortunately, the time passed very, very quickly and the show finished too. We said a sad goodbye to each other; we came back to reality. PSH left us again, but his magical personality stays with us, and he has an everlasting place in our hearts.
We decided that after the premiere of PSH’s new movie we will meet again, because being together and being with him was a fantastic experience.
Dear Park Si Hoo, thanks for being part of my life. You showed me the world I needed. You are glowing with your nice, soft, and magical personality, like the brightest star in the sky.
What else should I say? My PSH-fever won’t go down; I can’t do anything else but let my heart love you. Please shine on us for a very, very long time! We, your Hungarian fans, love you!
EDITOR’S NOTE: PSH’s Hungarian fans are very 大方 (open, natural, poised, carry oneself with ease and confidence). We asked limparedit if we had to blur their faces and she said no need. They are proud to be PSH fans. Good for them!
We have prepared a MV as a tribute to our Hungarian members (from photos they provided of their get-together), set to PSH’s CDDA OST “Shower” that he sang at the JFM.
Eo Il Seon resumes directing in 3 years … authentic melodrama “Love After Love”
Will be released simultaneously in Korea, China, and Japan in May
Cheongju University film studies professor in the College of Arts Eo Il Seon (48, photo below) has resumed directing in a joint-venture movie “Love After Love”.
The main characters are played by Park Si Hoo and Yoon Eun Hye, and the movie is an authentic melodrama about the love between a man and a woman. It is expected to be released at the same time in all three countries, Korea, China, and Japan, as early as May.
It began shooting last November in Jeju and later in Beijing for a period of four months.
Park Si Hoo’s protagonist is a cold and indifferent man Kim Seong Jun, a former airline pilot, and Yoon Eun Hye plays the role of his wife.
Eo Il Seon won the Best Director Award at the 52nd International Film Festival Mannheim Heidelberg in 2003 with his movie “Plastic Tree”.
“Plastic Tree” also entered the competition at the Montreal Film Festival and the 5th Deauville Film Festival as well as a number of international film festivals and Eo Il Seon gained name recognition.
After directing the 2009 movie “In Between”, he won overwhelming interest at the press conference.
“Love After Love” depicts the love of the male protagonist for the woman he did not cherish when he had the chance and the woman’s unconditional love for him, very delicately and complexly portrayed. “This is an authentic melodrama and the acting is compelling,” the director said.
He continued, “The film is currently in post-production, editing, etc.,” and “It will be released simultaneously in Korea, Japan, and China, and viewers in these three countries will see it at the same time.”
