Because: This month my Actress of the Month is from Japan. Kitagawa Keiko is doing one of the best jobs in Dokushin Kizoku aka A Swinging Single. She is not only a pretty face; she acts, sings, and models. This is the only the 3rd show I have seen her in, but she is crazy popular and I love the job she is doing. Kudos
Also Seen in: Dokushin Kizoku aka A Swinging Single, Tsuki no Koibito, and Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de
Actor: Kim Soo Hyun
Because: Have you seen this guy? Man from the Stars is set to premiere this month and is marking the return to drama land for noted film actress Jin Ji Hyun (she has been away for 14 years). Kim Soo Hyun will be playing her leading man (this is his second time with Ji Hyun, they sizzled on screen in the hit movie The Thieves), which in my mind says something. Like, hey, this guy is awesome. Soo Hyun received a Baeksang Award for Best Actor in 2012 (For The Moon Embracing the Sun). If you need me you can find me counting down the days until Man from the Stars premieres. I see bright things in Soo Hyun’s future.Pun intended.
As seen in: The Moon Embracing the Sun, Dream High 2, Dream High, Giant, Will it Snow for Christmas, The Thieves (film), Secretly Greatly (film)
