Tony Leung's not-so-wild 50th Birthday party

Tong Leung celebrated his 50th birthday with close friends from the entertainment industry, including Brigitte Lin, Jacky Cheung, and Kenny Bee.

The actor was originally scheduled to record his upcoming movie B>The Grandmasters in Guangzhou</b> but was given a day off. His wife, Carina Lau, then proceeded to invite friends to their house for a party at their home.

Carina had posted a childhood photo of her husband and continued with posting photos of the night's proceedings. Those invited were all Tony's close friends, but the late Leslie Cheung's absence was sorely felt as his friends sang in his memory.

On behalf of her husband, Carina announced "Tony's (birthday) wish is for everyone to be healthy!"

Yoon Kye-sang joins the cast of Road Number 1

Yoon Kye-sang has signed on to join So Ji-sub and Kim Haneul in MBC’s war epic series Road Number 1, which is bound to be one of the big buzz shows of next year. With those three leads in place (as well as Choi Min-soo and Sohn Chang-min), the main cast is now complete.

Yoon Kye-sang and So Ji-sub will play comrades and friends, while the love triangle with Kim Haneul will additionally set the two up as rivals. The Korean War drama takes its title from the name of the road that served as the main passageway from North Korea into Seoul, and from Seoul into Pyeongyang, during the war in 1950.

The cast held their first script reading at the MBC Dream Center in Ilsan on December 19. The production begins filming on January 4 and airs in June, in time to commemorate the sixty years that have passed since the war.

Odagiri signs on to promote Brillia Ariake Sky Tower

Heart-throb actor Joe Odagiri, 33, is the image character for the new Tokyo luxury apartment complex Brillia Ariake Sky Tower. At a recent talk show event, he gave the press an inside scoop on his personal life, insisting he is a complete indoor-type guy.

“It’s like I live in a house without a front door. I watch television, I lie around, and I drink a lot.” He is so fond of being at home, that on a recent trip to Brazil, the actor searched for a do-it-yourself furniture store to make his nest a more personal space.

Though the search ended in vain, Odagiri compromised by becoming a committed IKEA fan upon his return. “I love IKEA. The products they sell are so reasonably priced and kawaii. I’m currently jobless, so it would be amazing to be in their commercial if they ever had one. In the meantime though, my schedule is wide open for a booze gig too!”
