SBS “Einstein” siblings Won Tae-hoon and Won Tae-jin got a surprise of a lifetime when soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo walked through the door.
On Wednesday’s episode of “Einstein” Cristiano Ronaldo personally delivered a message of support to brothers Won Tae-hoon (12) and Won Tae-jin (12) after personally inviting them to Turin, Italy for a meeting.
The meeting, which took place earlier this month, while brief was inspirational and meaningful for the two, especially Won Tae-hoon. Won Tae-hoon is considered a soccer genius. Cha Bum-geun, an experienced sports commentator expressed awe and admiration after watching Tae-hoon place. “He is like Messi,” Cha said. However, playing soccer is not just a passionate hobby for the young player but is also a means to support his family.
Born to a Moroccan father and Korean mother, the Won brothers first appeared on “Einstein” last may, and have since made over 100 appearances on the show. In particular, as they shared more of their lives with the world, their struggle to make ends meet and spend quality time with each other as a result, touched viewers’ hearts. For Ten-hoon, soccer is the dream solution to his families woes.
During their conversation with Ronaldo, the soccer legend advised them that “in order to achieve your dream, it is important to do your best and trust that the dream will come true.” Ending their time together with a hearty cheer and hugging the brother, Ronaldo made his exit.

Ha Jung-woo puts European style on display in a new charming High Cut pictorial.
The May 3 issue of High Cut Korea features actor Ha Jung-woo walking through old alleys, leaning against stone walls, and relaxing in ancient squares in the small city of Tuscany, Italy.
Fittingly, Ha is dressed like an Italian gentleman. Some of the standout pieces include a beautiful fitted blue linen suit jacket. The jacket is paired with a pristinely white dress shirt and pants creating a nice contrast.
More, in another picture, the actor sports a dark beige suit with a dark tie and light grey single-breasted suit paired with a navy striped shirt. Of course, all the outfit have that signature “Italian tailored” looked. Notably, the clothing matches the actor with a sexy yet mature vibe.
In the accompanying interview talks about his extraordinary success with both Assassination (2015) and Along with the Gods: the Two Worlds (2017). “I am grateful” Ha revealed, recalling how elementary students called him by name the other day.
However, the recognition should not be surprising considering he has starred in over two dozen films. Furthermore, Ha has also won the best actor award six times. In addition to the two films mentioned above, Ha Jung-woo has also appeared in 1987: When The Day Comes (2017), The Handmaiden (2016), Tunnel (2016), The Berlin File (2013), and The Yellow Sea (2010).

A representative said, “we are not at liberty to tell you about the conditions of our actress. In addition, regarding the future schedule of Kim, we will have to see how well she recovers for the next few days and decide whether or not she needs to rest more.”
They continued, “but most importantly, Kim Sa-Rang is more upset than anyone about the accident. If we have any further news, we will release an official statement through the agency.”
On March 22, the 16th Florence Korean Film Festival took its place at the Cinema La Compagnia in Firenze, Italy. At the opening ceremony, actor and director Ha Jung-woo received le Chiavi della citta award from the city of Firenze.
The city of Firenze awards artists who have achieved success in the fine arts industry. The particular award has a meaning of “key to the city” and they regard the chosen artists as “honorary citizens” of Firenze. Ha Jung-woo is the second Korean to receive this award, after director Park Chan-wook.
The deputy of Firenze, Cristina Giachi, said “Ha Jung-woo has a great fandom in Italy. He has been working hard as an actor and director for the past 15 years. Through his career, he showed talent and enthusiasm in the film industry. This is why we decided to choose him as the recipient of this award.”
This was apparently Ha Jung-woo’s first time visiting in Italy, thanks to the festival. He said, “it’s weird how I never had a chance to come to Italy until now. I did not know I would receive such an honor on my first visit. I went to the Uffizi Gallery immediately after I landed in Firenze and saw amazing artworks. It is a short visit, but I hope I can deliver the emotions I felt here through my acting when I head back to Korea.”
The festival has prepared a “Ha Jung-woo retrospective exhibition” as well. In the exhibition, they will show 5 movies Ha Jung-woo starred in, including ‘Along with the Gods,’ ‘The Handmaiden’ from 2016. In addition, Ha Jung-woo will lead a masterclass for the citizens of Firenze and share about his film philosophy.
