Song Ji-hyo confirms relationship

2 Feb – After recent reports about actress Song Ji-hyo was caught on a date with the CEO of her management agency Baek Chang-joo, C-Jes Entertainment has come forward and confirmed that the two were indeed in a relationship.

According to HanCinema website, a representative of C-Jes Entertainment carefully stated, "Song Ji-hyo and Baek Chang-joo are dating, but they are still in the early stages of their relationship. Because this is a private personal matter, we have no way of knowing when and how they started dating."

The representative then declined to discuss the matter further.

The "Gyebaek" actress became label mates with JYJ by joining C-Jes Entertainment in July 2011, becoming the first actress to be recruited by C-Jes Entertainment. With C-Jes Entertainment's confirmation regarding Song Ji Hyo's relationship with CEO Baek Chang Joo, many fans expressed their concerns regarding SBS's "Running Man's" much-loved Monday couple.

"Running Man" director, Jo Hyo-jin revealed, "I just recently found out about Song Ji-hyo's relationship. We completed recordings for this week yesterday, 30 January. There is a possibility that the other cast members knew about Song Ji-hyo's relationship because they're all very close. However, the crew had no idea."

In regards to the Monday couple, he stated, "The Monday couple concept was not something neither the writers nor the producers came up with. It was something that developed naturally by the cast as the show progressed. So, it's not really up to us to alter the concept."

He added, "But now that Song Ji-hyo has gone public, I'm sure there will be gradual changes to the dynamic of the Monday couple."

Song Ji-hyo and Gary are known as the Monday couple. The two would entertain their co-stars and fans by showing interest in each other, especially on Mondays – the primary recording day for the show.

    Ford Transit Skyliner concept revives the ultra-luxury van

    “Once you do stand-up, you don’t want to go back.” No, we’re not talking about comedy, but rather an emerging trend in luxury transport that’s bringing us ever taller, more capacious, more pimpdillyicious limousines. The quote came from a Ford designer, Tim Stoehr, predicting an increase in interest in limos based on big vans like the new Transit. Of course, these are nothing new; up-fitters have taken quite kindly to the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and apparently Ford is chomping at the bit to get in on the action, too. So Ford enlisted the help of the largest Ford dealer in the world, Galpin Auto Sports in Van Nuys, Calif., to help design and build its first super-lux Transit concept, dubbed the Skyliner.

Amazon, it said, hopes to differentiate its phone from other models with a screen that displays hologram-like three-dimensional images, which can be viewed without special glasses.
