Full House 2 in making

Season 2 of the hit KBS drama series ‘Full House’ is in the making. [KBS]

Rain and Song Hye-kyo in Full House

Casting will begin this year and the drama will be filmed and aired next year. The director has yet to be decided and it’s unclear whether Rain and Song Hye-kyo will be recast.

I think the producers will do their best to lure Rain and Hye-kyo for the sequel; and I think both the stars should accept it. Rain’s concert has not been going well recently, and SHK’s movie venture is not really a success… a hit season 2 for Full House would bring their popularity to peak again.

Well, off course nobody can guarantee that the sequel will be as successful… but I think it’s worth a try definitely.

No Rain in Los Angeles

Korean pop star Rain has cancelled his concert at Staples Center, Los Angeles, just an hour before the start of the show due to technical difficulties.

Stephen Colbert vs Korean Rain

Famous US comedian Stephen Colbert made a parody on Korean pop star Rain’s song “How to Avoid the Sun,” funny video…

[Video removed by YouTube due to copyright violation]

Stephen Colbert is ranked #2 on Time’s recent online poll on world’s most influential people; #1 spot belongs to Rain (Bi)… thus led to the parody. The irony thing is, both of them are not on the official list of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people.

This is the original music video by Rain…
