Bae Yong-joon wins grand prize


The actor was awarded the grand prize at the Korean Entertainment 10th Anniversary Awards in Japan on Saturday.

Bae Yong-joon , also known as "Yonsama" in Japan for his huge popularity among Korean TV drama fans, received the grand prize at the Korean Entertainment 10th Anniversary Awards in Japan on Saturday.

Bae also won the best actor award in the category of Korean drama.

At the ceremony to mark the 10th anniversary of the airing of Winter Sonata – the drama that fueled the "Bae Yong-joon syndrome" in Japan - Bae expressed gratitude.

"This is a meaningful event, being able to share it with my fellow entertainers," he said.

"They have so much talent that makes the future of hallyu (the Korean pop culture wave) so bright."

Bae made his acting debut in 1994 and rose to stardom with his gentle and intelligent image.

He became a pan-Asian star, especially in Japan, after appearing in Winter Sonata in 2002. Since then, he worked as a cultural ambassador promoting Korean culture in Japan.

Meanwhile, actress Yoon Eun-hye, leading actress of popular TV dramas such as Coffee Prince, I Miss You and others, took the best actress award.

The organisers of the event surveyed a total of 120,000 K-pop fans and announced TVXQ and KARA as Japan's favourite singers for male and female groups, respectively.

Singer Kim Hyun-joong, who has been under Bae's wing since moving to Bae's agency in 2010, won the best male solo artiste award while IU won the female solo artiste award.

"I will strive to become a better artiste in singing, dancing and acting in order to contribute to hallyu," Kim said as he presented his latest songs, Your Song and Unbreakable. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network

New hosts, same attitude - 3R is back!


The programme that aims at empowering young women on issues of gender discrimination, sexuality and technology returns to the small screen.

AFTER a three-year hiatus, 3R (Respect, Relax, Respond) – a half-hour programme aimed at empowering young women on issues of gender discrimination, sexuality and technology – is back on TV.

Three new hosts are on board as well: Dayah (Nur Hidayah Abu Bakar), 24; Amirah (Siti Nor Amirah Mohamad Azmi), 22; and Yvonne (Yvonne Lee), 25.

They were selected from 12 finalists who made it to the last round of Projek 3R which was introduced in May to select three potential new hosts for the show. A thousand hopefuls between the ages of 21 and 26 auditioned for six weeks in May and June.

Projek 3R, which aired on TV3 in August, showed the finalists going through intense competition that tested them mentally and physically. Since its inception 13 years ago, the talk show with its three bubbly hosts, Azah Yasmin Yusof, Rafidah Abdullah and Low Ngai Yuen (and later, Kartini Ariffin and Celina Khor) was both trendsetting and groundbreaking. It dared to be different by openly discussing love, sexuality and relationships which many still considered taboo areas for TV.

For its efforts, the show won Best Infotainment Programme at the Asian Television Awards 2002; picked up a Red Ribbon Award 2002; and Best Magazine Programme 2003 (Silver) at the Malaysian Video Awards.

Produced by Red Comunications, the new season of 3R aims to pick up where it left off; and if the first episode aired last Sunday is anything to go by, it promises to be a hit with the viewers, especially the young women out there.

The new hosts have good chemistry and generated a lively and informative discussion on the issue of the week, which was domestic violence against women.

Executive producer Lina Tan was happy to see the trio in action.

"We all can see that the three girls have great chemistry just like our previous hosts.

"The fact that they are genuine good friends since their stint in Projek 3R also helps. And I'm really confident that they will be able to host the show in an interesting and entertaining manner for the audience," Tan said. The hosts have already taped six episodes to date.

She also added that audiences should be able to learn a thing or two as the girls will be discussing a variety of topics in upcoming episodes such as friendship, financial planning, gender-biased careers and other work-related issues.

> 3R airs on TV3 at 7.30pm on Sundays.

Homeland gets a fourth season


The multiple award-winning TV show has been renewed by Showtime.

Emmy-winning American counter-terrorism thriller Homeland has been renewed for a fourth, 12-episode season after its audience has grown by more than a quarter in its current third season, US premium television network Showtime said.

Homeland has averaged 6.5 million viewers through the first three episodes of its third season, while the second season drew an average of 5.1 million viewers over the same time frame, Showtime said.

While the series' audience has grown since its lauded first season, the second season faltered with critics for what was viewed as outlandish plot twists. Last month, Homeland failed to repeat its Emmy for best drama, losing to Breaking Bad.

Homeland" which stars Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, also sits at a crossroads as Lewis' popular Brody character has slid out of the spotlight, not appearing in the first two episodes of the current season. Lewis has hinted that the character could be killed off.

The series, which won the trifecta of top Emmy awards – best drama series, and best actor and actress in a drama – in its first season, also takes over as CBS Corp-owned Showtime's top drama after cult hit Dexter concluded in September.

Showtime added that it renewed drama Masters Of Sex, about the William H. Masters and Virginia E. Johnson research team that pioneered the field of human sexual response in the 1960s, for a second season. — Reuters
