The title song for Lee Seung Ki's third album is "Nice Lie", which is composed by Jo Young Soo and written by Ahn Young Soo. This ballad will bring everyone into tears with just one listen because of its sad melody and lyrics. It's a sad love story about a man who loves his girlfriend very much, but decides to leave her for her own good because there is nothing that he can do for her to make her happy. Another great medium tempo ballad is "Why…leave", which is also composed by Jo Young Soo and written by Kang Eun Kyung. All ten tracks will tell about different farewell stories. Lee Seung Ki's third album is being highly anticipated this autumn. – credits to purpletiger86

New and established Korean stars share the screen in the refreshing new KBS drama I Am Sam. Acclaimed actor Yang Dong Geun (Ruler of Your Own World) plays against type as a timid, bumbling high school music teacher whose knees get even weaker when he realizes he has to teach a mob boss's daughter (newcomer Park Min Young, Unhindered Highkick). Other than Yang's starring presence, I Am Sam has gotten a lot of buzz because it marks the acting debut of Big Bang's T.O.P, who plays a troubled and trouble-making student. The cast also includes Son Tae Young (Freeze), Park Joon Gyu (Hot for Teacher), model-turned-actor Park Jae Jung, and Ryan of Paran, who impressed audiences earlier with his performance in Hello Baby.

Paran fans have plenty to look forward to with I Am Sam as Ryan not only appears in the drama, he contributes his vocals to the soundtrack as well. Paran sings the bright and catchy theme song "Just Me, Just Me" (Track 1), which fits in perfectly with the drama's young, light-hearted atmosphere. The 10-track OST also includes Byul's ballad Love You (Track 4) and newcomer Genie's I Do (Track 3). – credits to YesAsia
