Korean celebs charged with propofol abuse

By spcnet.tv on March 13th, 2013 | Korean Dramas, Korean Entertainment

Korean prosecutors on Wednesday formally charged four female celebrities, Park Si-yeon, Jang Mi-inae, Lee Seung-yeun and Hyun Young, with abusing propofol, a drug widely used as an anesthetic during surgery, reported Korean media.

Prosecutors said Park was the heaviest user of the four, receiving more than 180 injections of the drug at two cosmetic surgery clinics between 2011 and 2012, for surgical procedures that did not actually take place.

The authorities have also charged the doctors who illegally administered the propofol injections, and an artiste management agency representative who had obstructed their investigations.

Propofol is a fast-acting sedative which relaxes the user and gives the user a feeling of euphoria.

However, it has a number of side effects, and can affect the user’s respiratory and cardiac functions.

Propofol is the same drug that killed US superstar Michael Jackson, who died from an overdose in 2009.

“Swordsman” for different audiences

By spcnet.tv on March 7th, 2013 | Chinese Entertainment

Playing the role of Linghu Chong in the highly-criticised Yu Zheng-produced adaptation, “Swordsman”, actor Wallace Huo stated that he had been expecting the disapprovals since he first decided to take on the role.

As reported on Popular Asians, the Taiwanese actor, however, clarified that “Swordsman” is meant for a different audience, stating, “I am personally against adaptations that differed from the original, but despite its changes, I was quite impressed with the script. I believe that many younger audiences are not familiar with the original, so “Swordsman” is for them.”

When asked about the comments made by fans who wanted his character to choose Joe Chen’s Dongfang Bubai instead of Ren Yingying, Wallace stated, “I know many fans cannot understand why he doesn’t respond to Dongfang Bubai’s pursuits after everything she has done for him. But the ending is set, and nothing can change it.”
However, he agreed that Linghu Chong and Dongfang Bubai’s relationship was a fascinating one and that the two characters cannot have a simple ending.

The popularity of the Linghu Chong and Dongfang Bubai relationship also mirrored the relationship between the former lovers, Wallace Hu and Joe Chen, who became a couple through 2004′s Taiwanese drama, “100% Senorita”.
Wallace explained, “We were young back then. Many things have changed in the past few years. Both of us have experienced different setbacks and different matters, so we have both changed dramatically.”

When asked if Joe Chen remains to be his ideal type, he answered, “Not bad. She’s good, and a pretty girl,” but continued, “I like low-profile girls. I also like those who are forgiving, and someone who I can take out with and manage a house.”

Park Si Hoo embroiled in 1bn won sex scandal

By spcnet.tv on March 4th, 2013 | Korean Dramas, Korean Entertainment

Korean actor Park Si Hoo, who previously starred in popular dramas like “The Princess’ Man”, spent almost 10 hours with Korean police on Friday, to assist with investigations into claims that he had sexually assaulted a female aspiring entertainer, reported Korean media.

The 22-year-old woman had earlier alleged that Park got her drunk at a bar, then took her to his home and sexually assaulted her while she was unconscious on February 15.

The police announced over the weekend that they have received new evidence on the case from Park’s lawyers during their session with Park, in the form of message logs between Park’s accuser and her friend.

In one exchange which took place after the incident, the aspiring entertainer apparently expressed that she would attempt to play the victim when she went to the police, after her friend suggested that she ask Park for a 1 billion won (S$1.1 million) settlement fee.

However, the police pointed out that none of these exchanges have managed to prove that their sexual encounter was consensual as Park had claimed, adding that they would continue to investigate the matter.

Park, who was mobbed by reporters when he left the police station on Friday, did not comment on the investigations, only saying that “the truth will prevail”.

Overseas broadcasters have reportedly put negotiations over the purchase of the broadcasting rights to Park’s latest drama serial, “Cheongdamdong Alice”, on hold, in light of the controversy surrounding Park’s sexual assault case.
