A day after the leads of soon-to-start-filming period K-drama Moon Lovers confirmed final casting in Lee Jun Ki and IU, now the rest of the cast is also locked down and more importantly got specific character assignments. This is good news even if fans of the original work in novel and C-drama Bu Bu Jing Xin have issues with the K-version casting, at least there is more certainty around the proceedings now. First off, the K-drama name is going to be Bobogyungsim: Ryeo, which adds the word Splendor behind the Chinese title of Bu Bu Jing Xin, so not sure why the English version is Moon Lovers....

In a recent photo shoot and interview with 'High Cut,' Jang Kiha grabbed attention with the mention of IU, his girlfriend who is 11 years his junior.

From what he said, it sounds like the indie singer connects incredibly well with IU despite what their age gap may have people believe. He said, "When I talk with her, rather than feel a generation gap, there are many more things we can relate to. The age gap is something that can be used for us to learn from each other, not something to be overcome."

The singer continued, "IU realizes things she didn't quite consider through conversations with...

It’s the Battle of the Burberry Coats!

Two coats, five people. Who wore it best?

Let’s start with the Burberry Brit down-filled coat ($1,395 USD), which comes with a detachable hood with removable fox-fur trim.

IU wore the coat in black last week in Tokyo. The singer posed for a Marie Claire photoshoot and accessorized (naturally) with a Burberry scarf and bag. Black ankle peeptoe boots finished her casual look.
