In the trailer, the main persons for the fishing village edition Cha Seung Won, Jang Keun Suk, Loo Hae Jin appeared.

Tonight, at the end of TVN programme ‘3 Meals a Day’, the trailer for fishing village edition was aired. In the trailer, the main persons for the fishing village edition Cha Seung Won, Jang Keun Suk, Loo Hae Jin & PD Lu Young Suk gathered together, discussing the roles in the programme. In the trailer, CSW said in his 45 years with seasoning, he’s very good with cooking, JKS also said he had good skills in cooking, receiving a lot of eagerness from viewers.

Apparently, the three will become fishermen, going to a fishing village on a small island, living a self-supporting lifestyle on the seaside. In regards to this, CSW, JKS etc of course wouldn’t have agreed easily. Therefore, PD LYS used all his tricks to persuade them to appear on the programme, even resorting to sweet talk, coaxing & lying, the viewers were enjoying it. ‘That island is very good, it’s heaven’. PD LYS is starting to promote the island they will be going to.

Sure enough, how did PD LYS cheated CSW, JKS, LHJ & made them appear on the programme willingly? When the 3 get on the island, will they adjust to the self-supporting lifestyle on the fishing village? ‘3 Meals a Day Fishing Village Edition’ will be aired on 16th January next year.

Note from Wen: I translated this from the Chinese version of Kpopstarz but I think most news articles are similar. However, one point to note, someone said Cha said he doesn’t use MSG but it’s not mentioned in this article. I am sure English versions of the news will come out soon but this is for info for time being.

[News Video]First ladies of ASEAN member nations talk Korean Wave "Greeted by Jang keun Suk"

Hello Pretty EeLs


Ask someone in Southeast Asia what comes to mind when you mention "Korea," and the answer is more than likely to be the "Korean Wave."
The region of more than 60 million people was the first outside of Korea to embrace K-pop music back in the late 1990s.
The first ladies of the ASEAN member nations got a look at the place where the wave originated during this week's Korea-ASEAN Summit.

Greeted by popular Korean actor Jang Keun-suk at the Busan Cinema Center, the ladies enjoyed clips of popular Korean movies that were made especially for the event.
They said K-pop, K-dramas and K-movies had captured the attention of the younger generation back home, and they look forward to what's coming next.

"They like something very new, very exciting, very vigorous, very energetic. I think this is why this is very well received by the young Malaysians."

"As you may know, Korean movies are quite popular in Cambodia. Korean movies also play a role in educating Cambodians, as they view these Korean movies as role models for their lives."

It's one reason that the number of tourists from Southeast Asia has been on a steady rise in recent years.
Last year, the total reached one-and-a-half million.

"Citing cultural simularities as one of the main reasons the Korean Wave has been so popular throughout Southeast Asia, the first ladies of the ASEAN member nations expressed hope that the influence of soft power will continue to strengthen cultural ties between Korea and the region.
