Although the day started off rough with heavy rains, clearly Mother Nature got the memo that the second day of KCON 2017 NY Presented by Toyota was beginning. By the time former Coco Avenue's Jenny Lyric took the Convention Stage for a surprise morning performance, the sun was shining, the sky was clear, and there were already people lining up for the concert's general admission. These fans were not about to miss this once-in-a-lifetime chance to see their faves up close-one Once, the name for Twice's loving fans, even braved the rain and camped out in line overnight. That's some serious dedication.

Professor Robert Kelly and his family became a viral sensation through a BBC interview in which the kids interrupted his online interview. He featured as a guest on this particular episode as he had special connection and relationship with Sam Hammington. Sam Hammington said, "When the BBC interview went viral, I initially contacted him personally via SNS. I thought he and I were both in a relatable environment; a foreigner living in Korea who has kids just like me. I thought we could converse well in that aspect."

[Hot Takes from the Noonas] "Goblin", "Descendants of the Sun" writer Kim Eun-sook is back with a new project, "Mr. Sunshine"

Just months after finishing work on "Goblin", Kim Eun-sook is already back at work with new project, "Mr. Sunshine".

Set in the early 20th century, "Mr. Sunshine" tells the story of a star-crossed love between a common soldier in the resistance movement against the Japanese occupation and an aristocrat's daughter. There's no word on casting yet, so feel free to fantasize about who you'd like to see in some fantastic period clothing in a time of great turmoil in Korea. Don't get too attached to your selection, though; Kim Eun-sook already has an actor in mind, though she has yet to reveal any names. Not surprising, since she's just about to start work on the script and the drama is in the very early stages of pre-production.
