"11 of BH Entertainment’s actors recently participated in a project photoshoot for ‘Vogue‘ magazine.

Actors who took part in the photoshoot include Lee Byung Hun, Han Chae Young, Kim Min Hee, Han Hyo Joo, Bae Soo Bin, Jin Goo, Kim Byul, Hong Ah Reum, Jooni, Sean Richard and Kim Jung Hun. It was reported that the profits gained from this year-end photo spread will be going towards projects for underprivileged children."

1)Why is Actors a zero article although they are mentioned in the precedent text as 11 of BH Entertainment’s actors?

2)Why is a future progressive tense selected in the last line? I couldn't come up with any proper reason for it:(

"The eleven actors spent 24 hours over two days to complete the project photoshoot. To match the Christmas season, Vogue was inspired to draw a concept from the popular romantic Christmas comedy, ‘Love Actually’."

3)I couldn't understand what be inspired to do means in that sentence. Could you tell me about it?

"In the photo spread, Kim Min Hee was given a ‘femme fatale’ look as she expressed her seductive charms to ‘Prime Minister’ Lee Byung Hun, who was well-harmonized with his ’secretary’, Hong Ah Reum."

4)Does well-harmonized paraphrase "in love with eash other" in here?

"Actor Soobin transformed into a novelist living in a secluded villa, while actress Jooni was the housemaid; the two expressed a relationship still in its beginning stages, and successfully pull off a cautious yet sensual atmosphere through their poses."

5)Does pull off paraphrases "create" in here? Or is there any difference between them?

"Han Chae Young acted as a girl who harbors an unrequited love for her fellow co-worker, Kim Jung Hun. Meanwhile, Han Hyo Joo and Bae Soo Bin posed for the ‘Sketchbook Proposal’ scene from the movie."

6)Does the red relative clause connote that there might be more than one girl who loves Kim Jung Hun because the noun, girl is combined with a indefinite article. I assumed the connotation from this answer http://www.englishforums.com/English/WhyDefiniteArticleUsed/xmhpg/post.htm

Thanks in advance:)

1)Why is Actors a zero article although they are mentioned in the precedent text as 11 of BH Entertainment's actors?-- It is not often required for plural nouns.

2)Why is a future progressive tense selected in the last line? I couldn't come up with any proper reason for it-- It makes it more interesting for the reader.

3)I couldn't understand what be inspired to do means in that sentence. Could you tell me about it?-- Vogue staff remembered 'Love Actually' and thought that would be a good idea for a concept.

4)Does well-harmonized paraphrase "in love with eash other" in here?-- I would guess so.

5)Does pull off paraphrases "create" in here?-- Here, yes, but normally 'pull off' = succeed in.

6)Does the red relative clause connote that there might be more than one girl who loves Kim Jung Hun because the noun, girl is combined with a indefinite article.-- No; just that there are many girls.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thanks very much Mister Micawber. I have one more questions about them.
Mister Micawber1)Why is Actors a zero article although they are mentioned in the precedent text as 11 of BH Entertainment's actors?-- It is not often required for plural nouns.
I meant I don't know why Actors is combined with a definite article although they have been mentioned already in the first paragraph. Or plural nouns are tend not to require definite articles?
Mister Micawber2)Why is a future progressive tense selected in the last line? I couldn't come up with any proper reason for it-- It makes it more interesting for the reader.
How interesting does a future progressive tense make it for them?
Mister Micawber6)Does the red relative clause connote that there might be more than one girl who loves Kim Jung Hun because the noun, girl is combined with a indefinite article.-- No; just that there are many girls.
Do you mean there are many girls who harbor an unrequited love for Kim Jung Hun?

By the way, Yokohama is my hometown. You teach English in a good place:)
I meant I don't know why Actors is combined with a definite article although they have been mentioned already in the first paragraph. --Where is this combination? I don't see it.

Or plural nouns tend not to require definite articles?-- More often than singular nouns, yes. In this case, however, I now see that the text is just indicating some of the actors involved, not all of them, so the definite article would be wrong anyway.

How interesting does a future progressive tense make it for them?-- More interesting than simple future.
