The Five  is one of the winners in 2010 KOCCA Story and Content Competition and was released as a paid online Daum manhwa last year (and was also published in a 5-volume set manhwa book). Since its release, it has gained popularity. And it is now going to be adapted into the big screen!

It’s been more than a year since she last had a movie, Fighting Spirit, so everyone’s excited!

Do check out the news articles released today!

At first I said I will take it and started preparing a bit for it. Then decided not to. Then changed my mind and want to give it a try for fun and see if my scores will improve even without any hard core studying. Then I just realized that I might be in Korea on the exam day (and I will not take it in Korea since it’s way more expensive there!). So I guess it’s the 32st TOPIK for me on October! Yey! More time to prepare (though I’m pretty sure I’ll just end up procrastinating).
