This is the third drama this year to receive a celebration dinner after "Come Home Love" and "Gilded Chopsticks".
Waiting for love luck to come
Earlier, Charmaine was photographed attending Raymond Cho's birthday with ex-boyfriend, Kevin Cheng. Asked if the two have reconciled? She laughed and said it was a misunderstanding: "I only knew there was another party going on when I got there, but the parties were in different rooms." Asked if she and Kevin talked (at the party)? She smiled sweetly and nodded: "It was just hot pot! Very lively atmosphere! (Reconciled?) We haven't contacted in a while. I was a bit drunk that night, don't remember much, but everyone was happy! (Contact through messaging?) No. (Do you want him to?) I am waiting for my own love, leave it up to fate! (He's pursuing you again?) Leave it to fate, I also want someone by my side who can make me happy. (A lot of people pursuing you?) No!" Afterwards, she quickly changed to subject saying she will be filming the movie "Return of the Cuckoo", and humbly stated that she has not yet been nominated for TV Queen.
Raymond Lam, who was rumoured to have joined EEG at a sky value of 100 million HKD, admitted that he has indeed signed a contract with EEG already, but the price is business confidential. Asked if he signed a 3 year contract? He said: "That's what the news said, then sure it is!"
Asked if he has been planning for girlfriend, Karena Ng's birthday, which is on the 27th of this month? Raymond expressed that he is preparing a birthday party for her: "Been preparing for 3 months, it will be held in Hong Kong! (Give her a gift?) I will give her something handmade. I told her not to guess. She is always able to guess right, so in the end it's not a surprise anymore!" Norman Leung heavily praised "Line Walker" for being creative. Speaking of how the audience TV habits have changed, will they lower their expectations and treat cast and crews to dinner if they can reach 24 to 25 PTS? He expressed that the best is at least 28 PTS: "There still needs to be a bit of a challenge!" As for HKTV starting their online channel soon, he stated that he is not worried at all: "Their platform is like a shopping platform, it isn't a channel, not really even considered media. We are different types of business. (They will also broadcast dramas?) They are broadcasting dramas they have in their storage, they will eventually run out of dramas to air."
Sharon Chan loses her voice due to her cold
As for Sharon Chan, who lost her voice because of her cold, is currently busy handling her new bakery business, "Blesscuit Bakery", asked if her husband feels pained to see her like this? She said: "A little! He told me to go see the doctor. (Affected business because you're sick?) I can still type, friends are all very supportive, buying by boxes of ten!"
Note: 30.5 PTS average most likely includes MyTV viewership count as well, as many people watch the live broadcast on MyTV opposed to television.
Friends, family, and fellow Ladies' Code members commemorate the 49th day of EunB's passing
The commemoration for the 49th day of passing for Ladies' Code's EunB took place on October 21. This is a very special day in Korean culture where rites are observed and the person's spirit is thought to enter paradise. On this day, the friends, family, fans, agency members, and fellow group mates Sojung and Zuny gathered once again.
On October 21 at 11:00 PM, they met at the Sky Castle Memorial Park. A rep told Ilgan Sports, "It rained on the day EunB departed us and it rains again today on the 49th day. EunB did not leave after comfortable circumstances; rather, she left abruptly, so I think the parents wanted to do something for her. We were able to give a Christian service quietly with the family."
A Polaris Entertainment rep stated to Newsen, "The 49th day for EunB ended well. Among the members, Sojung and Zuny took part. Ashley was unable to participate due to personal circumstances. EunB's family, Sojung, Zuny, her agency family, and some fans did a Christian service for her at the memorial park and sent on EunB well. EunB's mother did shed tears, but after the service, we looked at the sent in goods and talked about the past and smiled."

Man involved in planning 'The 1st Pangyo Techno Valley Festival' concert speculated to have committed suicide
It has only been a few days since tragedy struck at 'The 1st Pangyo Techno Valley Festival', and it seems that the incident, in which 16 were found dead and 11 severely injured was too overwhelming for some to bear. On October 18, a Mr. Oh involved in planning the event was found dead after likely committing suicide.
Mr. Oh is a 37-year-old employee of Gyeonggi Institute of Science and Technology Promotion, one of the sponsors of the concert. According to reports, he was involved in handling safety measures.
Mr. Oh was questioned about the incident by the police on October 17. Shortly thereafter, it is believed that he leapt off from the top of a 10 story building. His body was found the next morning. According to the BBC, Mr. Oh left a note saying, "I am sorry for the dead victims. Please take a good care of my children," revealing that he had felt responsible for the incident.
Concertgoers injured, killed at 'The 1st Pangyo Techno Valley Festival'
4minute, T-ara, JungGiGo, and Cherry Filter were scheduled to perform, and during 4minute's time on stage, a ventilation grate underneath concertgoers collapsed. Around the time of 4minute's performance, fans reportedly grouped to get a better view on top of a ventilation grate, which eventually gave way due to the weight, causing the spectators to fall 10 meters (~3 stories; 33 ft).
According to reports, police and rescue workers rushed to the scene and rescued 13 victims and confirmed 2 as dead. Workers had to drill through a wall 4 stories below the surface to reach the survivors. An investigation has been started for a more detailed support.
Cube Entertainment has stated: "The concert in question wasn't 4minute's solo concert, but other artists also attended. After 4minute's concert, the members and all the staff were not aware that the tragedy occurred and left the venue. It was only when they returned to Seoul that they heard the news about the accident. There is no way to express the sadness we feel. We hope that the incident today doesn't cause great damage to those who attended."
BBC News has reported that there are 16 dead and 11 injured. Twelve died at the scene, while 2 people passed away on their way to the hospital and 2 more passed away during treatment.
More details about the victims have been revealed. Most of those dead and injured are reported to be men in their 30s-40s, but there are also a few victims in their 20s. The 'Techno Valley' is home to a number of technology-related organizations and office buildings, and a large number of employees attended the festival after work. It's also reported that there were 300 security guards for the 700-person event. An insider gave a statement saying that the event organizers repeatedly warned people to stay away from the grate.
