Ever since we finished watching Descendants of the Sun, we've been so eager to watch Song Joong Ki in another drama, but to no avail. It turns out that he has a pretty acceptable reason. In a recent shoot and interview with W Magazine, the DotS actor shared exactly why he's not doing any shows yet. "I feel like I'm spending my free time more plentifully than I ever have. I've always spent my life as if I was pressed for time ever since I debuted, I had the mindset to take on another production as soon as I finished one... That's why, this year I've briefly stepped away from work and want to try and spend some time just as Song Joong Ki in his thirties." Aww! At least we have Battleship Island to look forward to, which will be released in July. (via


Remember when Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla were first paired as a love team in the now defunct teen show Growing Up? The reason we're asking is because the two recently held a mini reunion with some of its cast members, Julia Montes and Diego Loyzaga, the show's director Lino Cayetano, and producer Marissa Kalaw last April 21. Diego and Julia even took to Instagram to share some snaps from the evening. Diego thanked Daniel and Direk Lino for supporting all his projects and Julia reminsced about the times they were working together. Can you believe it's been five years? (via

If you loved Kingsman: The Secret Service, we bet you'll love its sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, too. We know because we've seen the full trailer, which was just released today, and we can't wait to watch the movie on the big screen. See for yourself!

We've been shipping #Bughead so hard, what with their on- and off-screen chemistry on Riverdale, but we must admit that #Jarchie comes in as a close second! KJ Apa who plays Archie and Cole Sprouse who's Jughead on the show are practically best friends on and off the set, and we have proof! Watch the video below, we promise it'll make you smile.

Hey, fellow Harry Styles fans! How do you feel about Coldplay's Chris Martin running our Hazza fan club? Chris was among the few celebrities who got to surprise Harry with a question at the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show where the "Sign of the Times" singer was a guest. "Hello, Harry Styles. My name is Chris. I've been a fan of yours for a long, long time. You're the biggest face on my One Direction tattoo. And I was just wondering, I wrote to the Harry Styles fan club to see if I could be working there as a job. I'll clean anything, you know? But no one wrote back to me. And I was wondering if you could tell me what would be the best way of advancing? I'm in a job right now that I like, but I would give it all up to run your fan club. So this is really just an application letter to you. Let me know. All the best, man!" LOL! After giving his advice, Harry said yes! Watch the rest of the video below with surprises from Ed Sheeran, Rita Ora, and Hazza's mum.
