Two souls not just ready to brave a new journey, a new lifetime together, but also ready to love greatly, unconditionally.

Lee Min Ho Obsessed With A Boracay Girl?

South Korean actor Lee Min Ho reportedly met a girl in Boracay earlier this year and he can't stop thinking of her since, causing him some insomnia.

An article on The Philippine Pride dated October 22, 2014 says Lee Min Ho expressed his excitement to go back to the Philippines and among the things he wants to add in his itinerary is to see the 23-year-old lady again. They met in the island paradise when the actor did a commercial shoot for local clothing brand Bench in January, the website claims. The actor had to extend his stay at the five-star hotel called VIP Groove because of its pretty hotel employee who captured his heart, it adds.

The said report, however, should not be believed because it is all made up. As stated on its About page, The Philippine Pride is "a satirical and entertainment website and should not be taken seriously. This site is just a product of creative thinking when boredom strikes."

What do you think of satirical websites? Feel free to comment b…

Macaulay Culkin Dead? 'Home Alone' Actor Mocks Death Hoax With Twitter Photo

Macaulay Culkin is dead, according to an article that has gone viral online.

The report states that the 34-year-old actor "was found dead Friday afternoon in his Manhattan apartment after police responded to a wellness check requested by a family member."

Apparently, it is all a hoax. The actor/musician himself put the rumors to rest by posting a photo on Twitter along with the caption, "We're on tour you silly people." He then followed it up with a picture showing him and his friend recreating a scene from "Weekend At Bernie's," a 1989 comedy flick in which two men pretend that their murdered boss is still alive.

It is the second time that Culkin fell victim to a death hoax this year.

Macaulay Culkin is best known for his role as Kevin McCallister in "Home Alone" movie series. He is a member of a New York-based, pizza-themed comedy rock band called The Pizza Underground.
