Chinese media blasts Jang Dong-gun

Jang Dong-gun was one of the most-searched keywords in China yesterday, following reports of the plummeting value of property the actor purchased last year.

Portal Web sites like Baidu featured keywords such as “Jang Dong-gun” and “real estate investment” side-by-side after news broke last week of Jang’s property decreasing in value.

On July 13, Korean conglomerate research firm Chaebol.com listed the value of properties owned by well-known public figures.

The Web site said the building Jang purchased in June 2011 for 12.6 billion won ($11 million) had depreciated to just 3.4 billion won.

Chinese media called Jang a “rookie” investor, telling readers that entertainers often make similar mistakes.

Meanwhile, Jang is in the spotlight in Korea because of his starring role in the hit drama “A Gentleman’s Dignity.”

Last year, the Hallyu actor starred in the blockbuster movie “My Way,” directed by Kang Je-gyu.

Are Stephen Fung and Shu Qi engaged?

Shu Qi and Stephen Fung was seen going to and returning from Tokyo together - and recent reports have suggested that the actor popped the big question while in the land of the rising sun.

Ever since working on the set of BIshonen in 1997, the two have reportedly dated periodically. Even though the duo have never publicly announced their relationship, Shu Qi recently posted the message "(I'm) in close proximity of happiness", leading to speculation that the actress is currently blissfully in love.

Stephen had claimed that he was going to Tokyo for work, but a source has revealed that it was merely a cover for him to formally meet Shu Qi's mother and to request for permission to ask for her daughter's hand in marriage - and both mother and daughter have nodded their heads in agreement.

The source further revealed that Shu Qi, whose contact will expire in October, will transfer to Stephen's company, where he will aid her in furthering her career in China.

To which, Shu Qi has replied, "Regardless of which company I'm in, everyone is a good team player. Right now, I'm living quite happily."
