ACTRESS KATE PANG BUYS FACE MASKS ONLINE, DIDN'T GET WHAT SHE PAID FOR

Since the Covid-19 outbreak, face masks have been a hot commodity. On Thursday (April 2), local actress Kate Pang went on Instagram to share her experience of purchasing face masks online, and how the items she received were not what was advertised in the listing. She wrote: "The picture showed a box but when it was delivered, the masks were removed and packed separately."

The 37-year-old also noted that the person doing the packing may or may not have worn a mask and gloves, and said that the masks weren't the 3-ply ones that were advertised.

She ended off her post by warning members of the public to be careful when purchasing face masks from online vendors.

It's been more than a month since the last episode of Crash Landing On You aired, and if you still miss it, here's a salve for the ache. 

Actor Yang Kyung-won, 39, has reprised his role as the vain but lovable North Korean soldier Pyo Chi-soo in a shampoo commercial for a brand that Hyun Bin previously advertised for.

In the commercial, Chi-soo visits a hair salon to get a lux treatment. While getting his hair washed, he asks if he'll be able to look like Hyun Bin after.

He enjoys the experience so much, he has his hair washed multiple times and racks up quite the bill. Unable to pay for it, he is forced to work off his debt in the salon.
