5 Things You Missed Today (August 22)
Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki's work for Descendants of the Sun may already be over, but the two remain good friends! The actress gifted Joong Ki and the cast of his upcoming film Battleship Island with a coffee truck. Aww, the caption says, "It's our fourth visit to the set of film Battleship Island. The filming is seriously happening all the time regardless of day or night. Actress Song Hye Kyo, an angel to the bone, called Coffee Pong for actor Song Joong Ki and the staff who are working hard. Even today many staff members we sweating like it was raining. We were also excited today thanks to actor Song Joong Ki who always comes over to greet us personally! We will convey actress Song Hye Kyo's precious heart well. Thank you for always believing in and counting on us actress Song Hye Kyo." (via Soompi.com)
It's no secret that Liza Soberano has a lot of admirers both here and abroad (hello, James McVey and Charlie Puth!), but Enrique Gil isn't worried. He's actually proud of his on and off screen partner. "Sanay na ako na pag may darating, name-mention si Liza," he told PEP. "Ayos yun, kaysa naman ayaw sa 'yo, di ba? I feel blessed din. Siyempre, that goes to show na people appreciate Liza's beauty and personality. It's so good to know you have someone that is close to you." (via PEP.ph)

Speaking of hair transformations, Lily Collins also said goodbye to her red hair. She was recently spotted in Hollywood with her dark brown locks. We'll surely miss seeing her bright red hair, but Lily looks good in any color! (via TeenVogue.com)

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have been pretty quiet after things got a little messy with Tay and Kim K. However, there have been rumors going around that the couple are planning to make things red carpet official during the Emmy Awards where Tom is nominated for Best Actor for The Night Manager. "Tom normally doesn't like his public life overlapping with his private life but he is so happy with Taylor that it's the perfect time," the insider said. "The event organisers have extended an invite for a 'guest' to join him because they know if they walk the red carpet together it will make it the most talked-about show of the year." Guess we'll have to wait until then to know if they actually will. (via Dolly.com.au)

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
