Song Ji Hyo – The Overachiever

Running Man’s Ace is one busy lady, as evidenced by the fact that we have Ji Hyo in Hong Kong, Ji Hyo running a 10k, Ji Hyo back at the airport going to Hong Kong once again, and Ji Hyo at the 2013 MAMA awards.In one week. She is not called Running Man’s Ace without a reason. I seriously want to be her when I grow up. Too bad I am grown up. Dang! Maybe in the next life!

On November 14th Ji Hyo popped up on the Weibo account of Chinese actor Ivan Wang. Ji Hyo was looking stunning in a red dress. Ivan Wang wrote:

“Today I am pleased to invite and work with Song Ji Hyo who came to Hong Kong! Ji Hyo is very gentle and nice!”

Ivan Wang and Ji Hyo

Yes, yes she is. On November 17th Ji Hyo was running around Seoul as part of the Nike’s We Run Seoul 10K. No word on her final time, but I am betting it read “Awesome”. Some pics from before the race:

On November 21st Ji Hyo was spotted at the airport, leaving for Hong Kong (wow, 2 Hong Kong trips in 2 weeks!) where she presented an award at the 2013 Mnet Asian Music Awards. Yep, she still rocks the killer airport fashion:ji hyo airport 3 ji hyo airport 2 ji hyo airport 1

And at the big awards show she presented with who else (okay, Gary would have been nice, but I can still deal) Kim Jong Kook!!!!! Check out the pics and video below (with bonus pics of KJK leaving for Hong Kong and an after party pic with Rain included):tumblr_mwntk0PTFw1svkawyo1_500red carpet mama awards tumblr_mwo502QxD11rkcinao1_500 tumblr_mwntmpOaAB1rkcinao1_500 kjk airport 2 kjk airport 1kjk rain MAMA afterparty

Proof: Lee Kwang Soo has friends. Handsome friends

Seriously, the giraffe has friends. I know, with Joong Ki in the army I would have figured that was it for the giraffe’s social life for a while (note sarcasm). But nope – there is photographic proof that he has friends. Handsome friends.

It all started with a Tiger / Giraffe date which had the pair attending a performance of the musical Murder Ballad. What a cheery title. Here are some pics of the two on their outing:

Kwang Soo and KJK Murder Balled 2Kwang Soo and KJK Murder Balled

So, I don’t count this as proof of friends, because we know KJK is a nice hyung that would go hang out with Kwang Soo if the giraffe was all alone. So, as proof I give you (hold your breath, hold your breath)


Kwang Soo and friends

Yes, that is Jang Hyuk, Kim Shin Ee, Kim Su Ro, Jo In Sung, and the man himself, Kwang Soo. Shin Ee, who is starring in Murder Balled, apparently went out after the show with his buddies, giving us proof once and for all that Kwang Soo has the ability to make friends. Thank you Kwang Soo (mostly thank you for a picture of Jo In Sung, yeah I am selfish like that). I wonder if Kim Jong Kook was invited but just went home? J

Yoo Jae Suk: Still insanely nice, Still insanely popular

Running Man’s Grass hopper has taken part in his first photo shoot in 3 years. Because he is the nicest man ever, he took part in the photo shoot because it was for a good cause. Elle Magazine’s Share Happiness campaign is aimed at providing support to women and children in Korean society. Other celebrities have also taken part in the campaign. Look, the grasshopper cleans up nicely:

As part of the magazine shoot Yoo Jae Suk shared why he is so hard working and diligent:

“The reason why I have to do my best is because when a lot of people continue to laugh and smile, I also become happy.”

Seriously. Hugs!

In other Jae Suk news, Brand38, a brand consulting firm, recently conducted a survey to find out which Korean celebrity people find fit the most for commercials. Yoo Jae Suk took the number one spot with 27% of the vote. The runners up were Kim Yuna and Suzy.
