Announcement on Sanclub’s 8th recruitment period from today 19th July – 31st August, with free invitation to members who would like to participate in Sang Hyun’s 2016 Birthday Fan Meeting & Showcase held on 24th September in Tokyo.
I wonder if the brief segment he’s singing is the new song he will be performing at the September fan meeting.

Sang Hyun’s Role In ‘Shopping King Louis’

mgb 15-07-2016
Thanks to MGB for providing more information on Sang Hyun’s role in the new MBC drama ‘Shopping King Louis’.
Sang Hyun plays Cha Jung Won, the Head of South Korea’s largest retailer Gold Group’s online shopping mall ‘Gold Line dot-com’, a workaholic with sharp looks and cool charisma. I’m not sure of the following but if I read it correctly, Cha Jung Won’s life undergoes a change upon meeting with country girl Go Bok Sil (Nam Ji Hyun) and later on becomes her benefactor (?).
As this update was tagged with ‘love triangle’ and ‘one sided love’, I wonder if Sang Hyun and Seo In Guk’s characters are going to fall for the same woman (Nam Ji Hyun).
Synopsis from Soompi:

Confirmed Casts For MBC Drama ‘Shopping King Louis’

Confirmed casts for the new MBC romantic comedy ‘Shopping King Louis’ (쇼핑왕 루이)
Clockwise from top left: Seo In Guk, Nam Ji Hyun, Yoon Sang Hyun & Im Se Mi
Though it’s not mentioned here, the previous report describes Seo In Guk (Louis) as heir and only grandson of the company President, who’s accustomed to a life where everything can be purchased with money and suffers from amnesia.
Sang Hyun plays the role of Cha Jung Won, a charismatic and indomitable workaholic general manager of an online shopping mall. There’s not much description on the roles of the 2 actresses besides their personalities but I expect a pairing between Seo In Guk with Nam Ji Hyun (as Go Bok Sil) and probably Sang Hyun with Im Se Mi (as Baek Ma Ri).
‘Shopping King Louis’ is set to premiere in September and the follow-up of the new drama ‘W’ which begins its broadcast on 20th July.

Sang Hyun’s Phone Interview On Talkshow M16

‘M16’ on the XTM channel is a talk show on general topics for men such as military, sports, politics and dating. The show is broadcast every Monday night at 22:00 (KST). Unfortunately the channel is only available in South Korea so we’re unable to watch.
The topic in tonight’s episode is about creating movies on real people who are well known such as the Russian genius mathematician Grigori Perelman, founder of the South Korean Navy Son Won-il and scientist cum detective (?) Isaac Newton.
Choe Seong Jun who had acted with Sang Hyun in the 2013 Kdrama ‘I Hear Your Voice’ had remarked that he would like to make a movie on Isaac Newton and his choice of lead actor for this role would be Sang Hyun. During the phone interview, everyone in the studio laughed when Sang Hyun joked that payment should be made in advance.
I thought I had read wrongly as I’ve not heard of Isaac Newton being a detective but a search on Google did verify that in Tom Levenson’s book ‘Newton and the Counterfeiter’.  Not a bad idea to cast Sang Hyun in an unconventional role should there be such a movie.

Park Won Sook’s Cafe In Namhae

The above photo should have been taken during filming of the 2011 Korean drama ‘Can’t Lose’ (episode 6).
The photo is displayed in Park Won Sook’s cafe in the pretty German Village in Namhae. From the lovely photos of the village which overlooks the sea, it would be nice to drop by for a visit.
Park Won Sook was the on-screen mum of Eun Jae (Choi Ji Woo) while the late Kim Ja Ok played Hyung Woo’s mum. The veteran actress passed away in November 2014 after losing her battle with lung cancer.
This village has an interesting story of how it came into being.
