[PHOTOS] Park Shin Hye Wins Paeksang's Popular Female in Dramas Award

April 26, 2012 is the second year in which Park Shin Hye attended the annual Paeksang Arts Award held in Seoul.

Over the course of about one month, fans were encouraged to vote for their favorite actress in the Drama category for the Paeksang Arts Award. Shin Hye beat her competitors with a win of 50.2%. Shin Hye won for her drama, "Heartstrings."

Tonight dressed in red, our lovely Lady in Red, walked the red carpet looking absolutely gorgeous, as always. During the awards show, Shin Hye was also a presenter.

When the recipients were announced and given flowers, Jung Yong Hwa ran from behind and gave her a bouquet! It was unexpected and Shin Hye was surprised. Later she said to the MC, "Last year, Yonghwa came from behind too. Next year, I hope Yonghwa comes from front."

Shin Hye's co-star from "You're Beautiful," Jang Keun Suk, also won in the Movie's category.


We would like to congratulate our wonderful girl on her win. She is an amazing actress. No one deserves this award more than her! We are so proud to be her fans! CONGRATULATIONS, Shin Hye! We love you so much!

[PHOTOS] 4.20 Dr.G Aquasis Private Gathering, Hong Kong

The event on 4.20 was a private gathering for fashion bloggers and fans. The venue of this party was the top-notch Azure Bar of LKF Hotel which is located in the heart of the central business district of Hong Kong. No media was present.

As mentioned before, 30 lucky fans who successfully applied on our site were chosen to attend. Refreshments were served throughout the event.

At the reception, each guest was asked to take a Polaroid photo which would be used for a very good purpose later. Each guest was also given two inflatable pompoms to welcome Shinhye's arrival (It's a very Hong Kong thing to use inflatable pompoms)

At 1:45 the event started and Shinhye came out wearing a very beautiful blue dress with cherry prints. *a point to note here is that I was sitting on a 1st row reserved seat right in front of Shinhye(3 feet distance), so Shinhye kept doing cute funny faces throughout*

She greeted everyone and started to introduce the Dr.G Aquasis products. Once again, she was asked about her beauty tips for great skin and why she likes Dr.G products.

Then it was time for live demos. There were two live demos – one on BB Cream and one on the Aquasis Gel Cream. The MC said she would pick whoever that puts his/her hand up the fastest.

I was very hesitant because I didn’t know whether.. and then I saw Shinhye staring at me and laughing. The MC told us to put up our hands again because she couldn’t see it clearly. So this time I shot up my hand at rocket speed and got chosen. 

Shinhye started talking about the BB Cream and the usage of it. Then she squeezed a big amount of it onto her hand, dabbed it, spoke of how the product is good for summer use, and then dabbed some onto my hand. She was being her usual bubbly and cheeky self and said ‘kekekeke’ while she was dabbing it onto my hand. We both tried very hard to hold back laughter as to appear professional. Not quite successful haha.

Then she spoke some more about the BB Cream and I was asked to speak about my feelings towards the product. Then I was asked about how I felt to be able to stand so close to Shinhye. We almost broke out into laughter again on that one but I managed to answer hehe. Then I said thank you to Shinhye and returned to my seat. 

The next chosen person got to demo the gel cream with Shinhye. 

The next event employs the use of the Polaroid photos taken earlier. Among all the photos, Shinhye would have to choose 3 lucky ones ‘with good skin’ and give them a gift pack each with the Dr. G products she has been promoting and a signed card. And she chose me again >_< Thank you, unni~

The third event was a lucky draw. 5 winners were chosen and were given traveling set products. Also, each of them received a little something brought from Korea by Shinhye – one person got Korean teddy keychains, one got a Minam mug.. etc. lucky! Among the winners, one of them was a fan who came specially from the Philippines to attend the event. When her name was picked, I said to Shinhye ‘This is your fan from the Philippines’ and Shinhye was surprised and happy “Philippine fan?”. Aww.

The last event of the day was group photo taking. Note: Hong Kong people love taking group photos, which explains why both events today and yesterday had group photo sessions.

After that, it was time for Shinhye to leave the venue for the airport. All the guests said ‘Kamsahamnida’ to her in Korean and she replied with ‘Dor Tse (Thank you in Hong Kong-nese)’ Then she waved goodbye and left.

Upon exiting, each guest received a gift pack with sample Dr. G products and also a signed poster from Shinhye.

We greeted her at the airport before she boarded her flight but no photos were taken to respect her privacy. Shinhye changed into her casual clothes, sports shoes and a cap. She waved goodbye to fans.

Inside the terminal, she updated her Twitter with two gorgeous selcas.
"홍콩에서 즐거운 시간을 보내고 집으로 돌아갑니다. 다음에 만나요 홍콩~^^ 서울로 돌아가면....... 나를 기다리고있는 중간고사... 시르다시르다..ㅠ
I had a great time in Hong Kong and now it's tme to go home. See you next time Hong Kong~^^ Upon return to Seoul.......midterm exams are waiting for me... pout pout..ㅠ"

Sadly, her flight was delayed due to bad weather LOL. We are glad that she’s home safely now and we will miss you, Shinhye! Thank you for the wonderful memories
