B1A4‘s Gongchan has been cast as the male lead in an upcoming web drama entitled “Delicious Love (literal translation),” marking his official acting debut.
According to a representative of his agency WM Entertainment, Gongchan will play the male lead character Ha Rin who falls in love at first sight with the female lead.
Based on a web novel of the same name, “Delicious Love” follows the perfect love story of a man who knows how to cook and a girl who knows how to eat.
The expectations are high for Gongchan’s acting debut due to the great success of his fellow members Baro and Jinyoung. Earning praise from both the public and industry experts, the two skyrocketed to fame through “Reply 1994″ and “Miss Granny.”

On the 18th, Gongchan posted an Instagram photo stating “to the office after my schedules,” hinting his appearance at his own exhibition at the WM Entertainment building.
30 minutes prior to the end of the exhibition, Gongchan made a surprise appearance and turned into the exhibition’s curator. He explained his photos to fans, and took photos with fans at the photozone, spending a warming time with them.
The ‘GONG CHAN SIK EXHIBITION’ has been taking place from August 14th to the coming 23rd, as a celebration for Gongchan’s birthday and B1A4’s 6th mini album release.
For a total of ten days, the exhibition is taking place on the first floor of the WM Entertainment building. Entry is free, and just requires the completion of simple missions that any B1A4 fan can know. The exhibition displays thirty of Gongchan’s own photos, which are cutely arranged according to his emotions.
Netizens who found out about his appearance later on made comments such as “Daebak!! Gongchan showed up at his own exhibition!”, “BANA from outside the city are crying”, “Surprise! Gong Chan Sik Exhibition is daebak!”, “As expected, B1A4’s fanservice is the best”.

On the 31st episode of KBS ‘My Neighbor Charles’, B1A4′s Gongchan stated, “I’m upset that racism and prejudices still exist.”
[T/N: Caption in the image states “I wish that everyone can open their hearts and look with a more open-mind, and that these issues can quickly be resolved.”]
On this episode, Gongchan along with Robert Harley, Hong Seok Cheon and Sayuri gathered to discuss and resolve the concerns of four teachers. On this episode, ‘Rachel’ (one of the teachers) stated that she was surprised when her students requested to be friends through SNS. According to her, in the States students and teachers cannot ‘friend’ each other through SNS. In this situation ‘Rachel’ was stumped by her smiling students’ requests. Sayuri, who thought that American culture was more open, was surprised by this.
On this episode, four teachers share their largest worries/concerns as teachers from abroad, in regards to prejudices and misunderstandings towards teachers and individuals from abroad in general. The 31st episode of ‘My Neighbor Charles’ discusses cultural differences between Korea and the US, and will air on the 18th (Tues) at 7:30pm.

Naver V App — B1A4 surprise letter to Gongchan
Jinyoung: Hello everyone. This is b1a4′s Jinyoung. The reason i came here suddenly is because, today, actually today! It is Gongchan’s birthday! When it was midnight we gave him a birthday cake and he was touched. When this comes out we are probably going to be on our way somewhere in the car. So today, I am here to leave a video message for Gongchan. Um… Gongchan is… it’s already his 23rd birthday. Gongchan-ah, time sure flies. When I look at you nowadays, I think and feel “He’s become a man. He’s become an adult.” And you look at us from behind, and though you are the youngest, you know how to take care of your hyungs. Because you’re here we can rely on you. Happy birthday, and the two of us should go out to eat meat. I’ll buy you beef. Really… it’s weird to say you’ve grown up so well… but I’m thankful that you’ve grown so well. And I feel like it was just yesterday when you were in high school. Time flies by quickly, which is somewhat sad. But since I can see your mature side now, it’s also a happy thing. Anyway, hyungs always trust you and rely on you, so please trust us and follow us too. You’re doing it already but let’s gain strength together and work harder. Thank you so so much. And, our pretty maknae, hm! Happy birthday~ Hyungs are always cheering for you. Fighting~
CNU: Hmm… Gongchan-ah hi. It’s Shinwoo hyung. Happy 23rd birthday. Our time together.. hm, how long has it been? 6 years? It’s been that long, and I feel like time flies by so quickly. Though you are the youngest, sometimes you are more hyung-like than the hyungs. You take care of us, and you act like an adult so I am so proud. Lately as an MC, you’re greeting many people. Watching you makes me feel very proud. As your hyung I am proud of you. I was worried, but now I think I didn’t have to. You’re doing so well. So, moving forward, whatever you may do, hyung will worry a bit less. Anyway, happy 23rd birthday. Moving forward, I hope you will continue to be our healthy and energetic maknae. Thank you. My donsaeng, Gongchanie. Bye~
Sandeul: Oh yeah~ Hello. This is Sandeul. Hehe… Do I have to speak formally to Channie? Hi Chan-ah~ Uh. Anyway. I wish you a happy 23rd birthday. While we were preparing for this album, I feel like… though I am your hyung, I was able to lean on you a lot. So I am very thankful. And… how should I say this… as time passed… how long has it been? 4, 5, 5-6 years? I saw you improve and become more mature, and hyung enjoyed seeing you do that. Since we’re improving together. Moving forward, I hope we can lean on each other and improve even more. And I hope you can become an even cooler Chanshikie… Ah I’m saying, thank you! Ah really… what else do I say? (giggles) Anyways, when hyung wanted to pursue something, if it wasn’t for your support, honestly I would have felt empty and I wouldn’t have felt like actually doing it. Mhm. I felt like that. To you I want to say ‘thank you’ the most. So thank you. And moving on, let’s work harder. Love you. Happy birthday. Gongchan’s 23rd birthday. From Sandeul.
Baro: Gongchan, hi. This is your favourite Baro hyung. Leaving a video message for you like this is really awkward and embarrassing, but coming across your 23rd birthday, I’m leaving a message for you like this. Firstly, I congratulate you. We, when you were in high school, 2nd level? 1st level? But now you’re 23, and it’s hard to believe. Time sure flies right? Reflecting that time, we’ve really embarked on many roads together. And we have more to walk together, so I hope you can continue to ‘fighting’ and follow your hyungs. You’re doing well now of course, but I know you’ll do even more in the future. And hyungs will lead you well. So let’s gain strength together and make a great B1A4. Also, if you want something, just leave me a separate text. And hyung will prepare it for you secretly. Look forward to your birthday gift! There’s no one like Baro Hyung right? Anyway, happy birthday. Uh… our donsaeng. Hyung really adores and likes you. You know the only donsaeng (in the group) I have is you right? Right. This is embarrassing. Happy birthday! And on your 24th birthday, let’s meet like this again. Bye~ Let’s do well with Sweet Girl! Fighting!

Lately the days have been quite sultry, your displeasure level must be on the rise and frustrations spreading right?
Expecting this, we’ve prepared the following. A surprise event to cleanse your eyes and provide some healing. The greatest summer plan where you can look at both flowers and a flowerboy, and rest your heart!
Flowerboy’s florist challenge!
After rigorously looking over many potential candidates, today’s flowerboy is B1A4′s ‘clear-cut handsome man’ Gongchan!
He’s just walking up the stairs but is emiting a light.
[Gongchan’s appearance… dudung!]
Gongchan who accepted a florist challenge to provide healing down to your bones, but looking at today’s challenge he couldn’t hide his slight surprise.
[Really, I will be making this?]
According to Kim Sol Mi florist from ‘My Flower Recipe’, who will be guiding Gongchan, this All Round Arrangement is a craft at the expert level.
[This is the arrangement to be made today]
When asked if he has made flower arrangements before, Gongchan replied, “This is the first time. Not even an arrangement, but I never even gave flowers for a present. Ah! Carnations for my parents…” and confessed his life far from the world of flowers.
Even though his face is a flower.
However once he put on his apron and finished getting ready, he started to tackle the challenge, and the reporter as well as Florist Kim were surprised with his talented scissoring and concentration. He unleashed his hidden talents.
Florist Kim: “It’s important for a florist to have a sense in making the complete design and arranging the colours, and Gongchan really has that sense.”
[His scissoring technique is unstoppable]
Perhaps he has a sixth sense relating to “flowers”, as he is a flowerboy.
[Flower and flower’s meeting]
Worried that he would be tired from concentrating for so long, he was offered a break. But Gongchan replied, “I’m alright, so please rest first”, holding back his break to return to focusing on his arrangement.
At this point it’s becoming hard to determine whether his occupation is a florist or an idol.
[Even Florist Kim is pleased with his sense]
An official from WM Entertainment even stated proudly, “For our Gongchan, usually when he focuses on one thing he’s the type to continue until its completion. Hohoho”, and they are definitely correct.
[You can just see that he is focusing]
But still, it wouldn’t be good for him to finish his arrangement too quickly, so they forced him to take a break. But even then, Gongchan didn’t let go of the guidebook and was imagining his completed arrangement.
[Even during his break, he’s studying]
The reporter couldn’t just play around, so they had an interview with Gongchan during the break.
Reporter: “You said this was your first time, are you having fun?”
Gongchan: “As expected, doing it myself allows me to concentrate, and I like it.”
Reporter: “Who would you like to present your completed arrangement to?”
Gongchan: “Of course it’s our fans! And after that, I want to give one as a gift to my friends, and our staff.”
Reporter: “There are many different flowers. Which one is your favourite?”
Gongchan: (Picks one up) “This one.”
[Please accept this juliet rose]
Florist Kim: “That’s a juliet rose. Generally the rose symbolizes ‘love’.”
Gongchan: “Ah… that’s probably why I wanted to pick it. Today’s main concept is the rose. Haha”
He reacts to the word ‘love’ like a romanticist, and goes back to admiring the flowers.
[Oh it’s getting there]
And this is the completed arrangement! Tadah!
He looks at his own arrangement proudly, and now he’s fallen into taking photographs.
[From various angles]
Actually, his hobby is to take photographs.
Gongchan: “Recently, I went on an outing to Seoul Grand Park. I rode my bike by myself, and it was fun.”
Fans should look around when they visit Seoul Grand Park in the future. Gongchan might be there, taking photos.
[He took quite a lot of photos]
His arrangement is complete, but it would be disappointing without a letter to accompany it. Gongchan wrote two letters: one for his fans as expected, and the other for his future wife.
[This is good handwriting though…]
But Gongchan who was unstoppable with his flower arrangement is struggling quite a bit with writing this letter.
Gongchan: “I have really poor handwriting. I should have taken a handwriting class when I was younger…”
It’s not at the level of calligraphy… but it doesn’t matter if it’s poor handwriting. Especially when he’s putting so much thought into the message.
Furthermore, with B1A4′s comeback approaching he was asked about the new album’s concept. And unexpectedly, Gongchan answered without hesitation.
Gongchan: “Our new album’s concept is the same as this flower pot.”
Gongchan: “It’s the same as this flower pot. Our concept.”
Anyway that’s what he said. So Banas should look at Gongchan’s flower pot and look forward to their new album.
Until the end Gongchan listened to methods of maintaining the arrangement, and stated, “It’s for our fans and my future wife, so I have to store it somewhere safe. I want to put it where I can keep an eye on it.” And with that, his florist challenge ended successfully.
[Respectful Gongchan gives a 90-degree bow]
To be honest, there were thoughts of holding an event for fans and using the arrangement as an award, but as it was a live flower arrangement that plan didn’t go through.
Regardless, the fact that it holds Gongchan’s and B1A4′s heart for their fans is never-changing, so don’t be too sad and please offer a lot of support for B1A4′s comeback!

Hello Starcast family!
It’s been a while but we found you with recent news of B1A4. The B1A4 members who are passing each day busily with their individual activities and album preparations! In order to meet Jinyoung who is living on Jeju Island for his drama filming, maknae Gongchan is said to have gone on a trip to Jeju Island! With the feeling of almost sharing his eyes, here is his vivid photobook-like trip! Shall we begin~?
[GONGCHAN (B1A4). 1993 born in Jeolla Suncheon. During his high school years he came up to Seoul and spent time under WM Entertainment as a trainee, until he debuted through the idol group [B1A4] on April 23rd, 2011. Currently he is active as a singer, as a member of B1A4. Within the K-POP idol group B1A4 he is in charge of maknae, face, and timbre. His hobbies include photography and his special talent is in rock, paper, scissors.]
[Since it wasn’t really a planned trip it’s lacking in areas, but please have fun while reading^^ Let’s begin my short travels to Jeju Island!!!! To Jinyoungie Hyung who invited me to Jeju Island out of the blue, guest star Sandeullie Hyung and the other B1A4 members, I dedicate these travels to you. Next time let’s go together! 2015.06 Gongchan]

#0: Prologue: ‘What’s Going On’ Leader Jinyoungie Hyung’s Call!
A drowsy afternoon, after coming in late from our new album preparations with Sandeullie Hyung, and during my sweet sleep my cell phone received four missed calls.
I thought perhaps something pressing happened so I immediately called Jinyoungie Hyung.
Jinyoungie Hyung called for me to visit him at Jeju Island.. Fellow B1A4 member Jinyoungie Hyung is currently staying at Jeju Island to film for his drama. Thinking of seeing him after this long got me excited, and so I packed my camera and headed for the airport!
My plans for a day trip to see his face started like this.
#You may all know this already but Jeju Island is Korea’s unique island that has been designated as a world heritage site.#
‘My plane ticket that I got in a hurry.jpg’
#1: Meeting.. and fishing time at Jeju Island.
For my day trip, I arrived at Jeju Island!
This is Jeju Island’s blue sky! Arrived where I said I would meet Jinyoungie Hyung! This image of the boats at the waterfront is very warming.
Seeing the wall painting of the ‘Dol Hareubang’, Jeju Island’s specialty, I get a greater feeling that I’m actually on Jeju Island! While looking at the waterfront scenery Jinyoungie Hyung arrived.
‘Nice to see you Jinyoungie Hyung~~!’ During the time I haven’t seen you, it looks like the way you carry your bag has changed a bit #JejuIsland #Locals
Took a photo of us getting ready to have a light lunch at the waterfront# Jinyoungie Hyung #Hello #HaveYouBeenWell #MissedYou
After lunch we spotted a fisherman drying squid.#Squid #TastesBetter #WhenDried
Jinyoungie Hyung feeling the Jeju Island breeze with his head!#Distress #Profound #Loneliness
Probably because Jinyoungie Hyung liked the straw hats, he gifted me with one on the spot #ButIPaid
Looking at Jeju Island’s beautiful scenery, my heart feels like it’s getting purified.
Signs of life between the boulders! #StalkedBarnacles
Thought about what we should do, and decided to go ocean fishing!
#Feat.Jinyoung #YouTrustHyung? #It’llBeQuick #WeCanComeBackQuickly #JustTrustHyung Off to go on the boat~!
#Moving locations by car#
#Beautiful Jeju Island scenery#
Finally off to fish on the boat! #VroomVroom
Jinyoungie Hyung has a feeling@@!
Seems like he feels something
Jinyoungie Hyung caught a fish.!!!
#I caught one too of course. #Blowfish #IFeltSorryForIt so I let it go #GrowWell
After we finished fishing the sun was already setting.
With the unexpected ocean fishing I wasn’t able to get on my plane, so I spent a night on Jeju Island,… #JinyoungieHyung. #YouShouldHaveToldMeTheTruth #WhatIsThis #SoI’mSleepingOver
#2: HealingTreeGarden #SuccessfulExperience
Woke up in the morning, with the morning sunlight
Feels like I came to a forest, so my heart feels calmer!
Saw an image of Sandeullie Hyung on the comment wall of a cafe!
[Sandeullie Hyung at Jeju Island…??!! Let’s visit together next time!! Jjang!! 2015.5.29 -Gongchan-]
With Jinyoungie Hyung’s recommendation we arrived at a great viewing spot on Jeju Island!
Starcast family I love you
Then let’s get to it~!
If you follow paths like this
You’ll see these types of scenery before your eyes. #KeepAsReference#
A gentle photo of myself for memories. #First travels to Jeju Island#
#WaterStrider #Symmetry #Perfect
After looking at the great view we moved to Jeju Jeolmul Recreational Forest! #Healing #Clean #Oxygen
I can feel the age of the forest from the tall heights of the trees.
Famous for its superb view it’s Jeju Island’s Cheonjiyeon Falls!
If you walk and follow paths like this you will find more beautiful scenery.
Before I knew it the sun was setting, unfortunately time to head back!
Lastly I took a picture of B1A4 Dol Harubang that I found at Jeju Island! Fascinating that there were exactly five!#Who’sWho #AnswerIs
Because of Jinyoungie Hyung’s sudden call I came on a Jeju Island trip, but during my travels I felt like I was being healed so I’m happy. It would be nice to come on a Jeju Island trip with all of the members next time~^^ I will be the guide^^ I’m just great~^^Please look forward to it. (Next time I’ll prepare better… such a shame..)
#Photo while on the stone bridge
# Gorgeous sunset #MyHeartFeels #Refreshed
#Warm leader Jinyoungie Hyung who is catching a fish for me
#To Starcast Family who are reading this #And BANA I wish you all happiness!
This is all that has been prepared for today! Everyone have a happy day and please look forward to future news of B1A4 that we will find you with soon~!
