Gummy releases teaser for As a Man starring Kim Hyun Joong

Talented singer Gummy’s new mini album title song As a Man teaser was released earlier today.
The song As a Man has been receiving a lot of attention as one of Teddy’s productions and became an even greater subject of attention when it was revealed that SS501’s handsome Kim Hyun Joong and actress Jung Ryeo Won would be featured in the song’s MV.
Kim Hyun Joong’s detailed acting expressions and eyes that appeared to be full of happiness further showed his charm as he successfully portrayed the song. Along with the teaser, a portion of As a Man was also revealed.
The melody heard in the 30 second teaser appeared to be a level upgraded from Gummy’s usual songs as her vocals mixed well with the song’s beat.

Meanwhile, the full version of As a Man MV will be released on the 30th

Super Junior’s Heechul writes about Hankyung on his minihompy

Although none of the Super Junior members have publicly spoken up about the situation between SM Entertainment and their Chinese member Hankyung, it seems like they do know what’s going on and they miss him dearly.
On the 28th, Heechul updated one of the photo albums on his minihompy with a anime picture and a long poetic caption. He wrote:
There is a friend of mine.
The friend’s Korean isn’t the best but he’s amazing at Chinese
This friend’s singing is alright but he is really good at dancing
I like cats and this friend likes dogs
I can’t cook but this friend is good at cooking
I always cursed but this friend always laughed
Now that time has passed, I never did anything good for him kk
It’s making me sorry..
When he was next to me, I never did anything nice to him kk
I don’t self-pity myself usually..
I think I’m just drunk which is why I’m crying kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
It’s a special and sacred thing to have someone beside you
Though I grew up, I never realized that
A lot later….Now I know.. Wow..kkkk
There’s a reason why you should appreciate what you have
Saying “I miss him” is a phrase I can use now. (-┏)
The tears that never came out when I filmed sad scenes
Are coming down painfully now.
It sure seems like he’s going through a hard time. He doesn’t fully say it is Hankyung he is talking about but  honestly, who else could it be?

Choi Siwon’s interview with Elle

Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, who is currently starring in Oh! My Lady, was featured late last month in Elle Magazine.

In the photos, Siwon showcased his charismatic and playful image. He wore different suits which expressed different concepts, and he acted like a professional throughout the photo shoot.
Siwon asked the staff about the concept he had to express, and he also answered each questions thoroughly in the interview. Thus, the staff gave him the nickname, “manner guy.”
Through the interview, Siwon stated, “Because there is a Super Junior, there is also an actor Choi Siwon. [...] I can’t let go of both Super Junior and being an actor. [...] When the drama [Oh! My Lady] ends, I want to go on a vacation with my families. As I grow older, the importance of making your parents happy grows as well.
Well unfortunately, it looks like Siwon might not have time for a vacation after his drama ends due to Super Junior’s preparation for their comeback.

Eyelid surgery pictures of girl idols regaining interest

Just like you and I, idols have flaws of their own–they are people too. However, plastic surgery can sure fix that!
Recently, a collection of pictures of single-lidded girl idols resurfaced on an internet bulletin board. Although these pictures have been revealed individually before, it is stirring up quite a commotion among netizens as the picture groups together some of Korea’s top girl idols.
This collection displays SNSD’s Yuri, Kara’s Goo Hara, Wonder GirlsYeeun, as well as others (which included Secret’s Sunhwa, After School’s Uee, and actress Nam Gyu Ri in the original bulletin).
Netizens commented, “When you put them together, it’s really the jackpot!”, “Although it’s besides the point, I can’t help but laugh,” and “Even though they said they only had double eyelid surgery, it looks like they did a little more.”
Nevertheless, it’s what’s on the inside that counts! Right?

As you guys know, girl group f(x), who had previous hit songs such as LA chA TA and Chu~♡, are scheduling to make a comeback in May. Yesterday, Sulli and Amber’s teaser photos of f(x)s comeback were revealed, and today the rest of the members’ photos have finally been revealed!

The girls of f(x) are looking to show more matured and upgraded music and performances through their comeback. Stay tuned as f(x)’s mini album will be released on May 4th!


The “new” Sulli and Amber tease f(x)’s comeback

Better update that list of May comebacks, folks! It has been announced that girl group f(x) will make an official comeback to the K-pop scene on May 4th with a brand new mini-album.
After consecutively releasing of LA chA TA and Chu~♡, the five girls of f(x) began to expand their activities in various fields, ranging from modeling for Andre Kim to volunteering in Africa.  After mere months since debut, f(x) has already dominated the music charts, on top of scoring numerous endorsement deals.
Today, on the 27th, f(x) unleashed a couple teaser comeback photos capturing Sulli and Amber looking radically different in their new concept. Though still sixteen going on seventeen, Sulli looks mature in her solo shot. Her hair seems to be inspired by Lady GaGa who has rocked a similar ‘do in the past.

Never-before-seen pre-debut clips of SM artists gain interest

As many of you already know, you have to go through an audition process to get one step closer to being a singer in Korea. After the auditions, you are a trainee. As a trainee, you learn acting, singing and dancing under your company.
Audition clips of many stars have been released before to create laughter or let the star reminisce. The audition clips of SNSD’s Hyoyeon, Seohyun and Yoona have been released on few of the variety shows before. However, new videos of SM Entertainment artists as trainees have been released to the public.
In these videos, you see SNSD’s Seohyun, Yoona, Yuri, Sooyoung, Jessica, Super Junior’s Kibum, Heechul, Kangin, Yesung, Hangeng, Sungmin, Eunhyuk and TVXQ’s Yoochun, Yunho, Jaejoong, Changmin. They all look more at ease back then even though they often talk now about the stress they were under during those times. They all look relatively similar to how they look now but Yuri looks quite different with her braces.
Netizens wrote,
“They’re all so cute. It’s funny to see them before they were stars.”
“Yoona and Yuri looks like babies.”
“They all look so young.”
The videos are quite endearing and they explain why the SM fambam is so close.
Check out the videos:

CNBlue’s Jung Yonghwa diagnosed with vocal cord nodule

CNBLUE’s leader Jung Yonghwa has been diagnosed with vocal cord nodules.
Jung Yonghwa’s agency, FNC Music expressed, “During the recording of Kim Jung Eun’s Chocolate on 21st April, Jung Yonghwa said his throat felt weird so we took him to the hospital where he was diagnosed with vocal cord nodules.”

Vocal cord nodules are small growths on the vocal cords that occur due to high levels of stress on the vocal cords (similar to a callus on the hand).

They are commonly referred to as the singer’s nodule. Symptoms include a breathy voice and a hoarse throat.

At the rehearsal recording for Chocolate, Jung Yonghwa repeatedly said that he felt his vocalization was off and that his throat felt weird.

An official said, “The first steps we have to take do not include surgery, the only thing the doctor recommended was that Jung Yonghwa take a break from all activities including CNBLUE’s new album.”

The representative also stated that the nodule was found at a very early stage and should be easily treated with some rest and relaxation. CNBLUE’s original plans for a May comeback will now be slightly delayed as a result.

Thankfully the sickness is not serious and Jung Yonghwa will be back soon. We wish him a fast and safe recovery.

SBS and MBC to postpone schedules, Music Bank cancelled

And just like the beginning of this month, SBS will be canceling some shows for this weekend again.

The South Korean naval ship, Cheonan had broken into 2 parts late last month while on a routine patrol near North Korean waters due to an unexplained explosion.

Although fifth-eight managed to be rescued, the other 46 sailors were trapped in the ship’s stern. The salvage operation which had been put off for days due to bad weather and choppy seas was carried out today to lift the stern from the ocean’s bed and several bodies were spotted by news crews filming the scene from a distance.

In view of the situation, SBS has decided to postpone the airing of Star King, Inkigayo and Good Sunday (Family Outing 2, Gold Miss) for this weekend.

KBS and MBC are expected to do the same shortly afterwards.

Music Bank’s Go Won Seok PD said on the 15th, “Music Bank is officially canceled this week. We can’t air for many reasons at the moment. We are regretful. We hope that everything will be cleared up soon.”

He tweeted a little while after, “This week, Lee Hyori and Rain were supposed to have their comeback stages together. I’m sure you’re sad that the show has been canceled. But next week, Lee Hyori, Rain and 2PM will make comeback stages. Of course, that’s only if we broadcast without a problem.”

It’s been over three weeks since the naval ship sinking but Music Bank is still going to hold off from broadcasting due to ongoing salvage operations.

Via: AKP: 1 and 2,

I'm not sure if the cancellation has to do with the latest developments of the Cheonan situation or the strike. Perhaps both.

for those who find this tl;dr: Family Outing, Gold Miss, Star King, We Got Married, Music Bank, Music Core and Inkigayo will be cancelled. MNet countdown is airing currently.

Jessica, Sooyoung and Hyoyeon making a cameo in Choi Siwon’s drama, Oh! My Lady

There have been a lot of hype about SNSD members, Jessica, Sooyoung and Hyoyeon making a cameo in Choi Siwon’s drama, Oh! My Lady since last week. So naturally, a lot of SNSD fans were tuned in to their television sets on April 12th to catch a glimpse of their idols.

The non-speaking cameo was very short though, clocking in at just 13 secs and sees the girls walk on a miniature red carpet and posing for the cameras.

Seungri then blurted out, “Is it Jo Kwon or me?”

SM Entertainment announces plans to file a lawsuit against TVXQ trio

Today on the 13th of April, SM Entertainment made an official announcement regarding their stance on the TVXQ JaeChunSu situation they have been tangled with for the past several months. The tables have now turned – SM Entertainment have revealed to file a lawsuit against the TVXQ trio.

Here is a direct translation of the excerpt from the posted announcement.

안녕하세요. SM엔터테인먼트입니다.

SM엔터테인먼트는 동방신기 3인 관련 가처분 결정 이후, 지속적으로 동방신기의 존속을 위해 노력하면서 가처분 이의신청 및 본안 소송을 잠정 보류해 왔습니다.

그 러나 3인 측은 당사의 동방신기 활동 요청에 대한 공식적인 입장을 표명하지 않고 있고 일본에서도 동방신기로서의 활동중단이 발표됨에 따라, SM엔터테인먼트는 지난 12일 가처분 결정에 대한 이의신청 및 전속계약 존재확인 등에 관한 본안 소송을 제기하였음을 알려 드립니다.

Hello, this is SM Entertainment.

After receiving the confirmation that the TVXQ trio will be filing an injunction, we SM Entertainment had continuously put our best efforts to keep the group in existence, thus we have delayed this lawsuit on our objection toward the trio.

However, the three are not giving us their answers to our request of continuation on the activities, but instead declared to stop all of their activities in Japan. Therefore, we are here to notify that we have filed in a lawsuit on the 12th against the trio, to state our objection toward their provisional disposition of the contract terms and also to verify of the contract’s remaining validity.

Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk, the official attorney of TVXQ, revealed on a phone call with Newsen on the 13th, “We’ve learned about the lawsuit through the internet, but we haven’t gone through the details yet. We will respond to their action accordingly.”

Until this day, SME has been rather subtle on their take on the lawsuit by Jaejoong, Junsu, and Yoochun. Just recently, the five-member group has halted their activities all together after the release of their Japanese single Toki O Tomete. Since then, many media source have declared that TVXQ is technically over, as they’ve now split for good.

Of course, the real fate of the trio is yet to be made certain. But with all these negative answers emerging at the moment, it sure does not look so good.

BEAST Jang Hyunseung, "I'm Hungry"

Image and video hosting by 

Beast Jang HyunSeung, was a member of Big Bang but unfortunately eliminated on the show "MTV Big Bang", then he moved on and joined BEAST's agency. Now, He's more famous as "BEAST member Jang Hyun Seung" rather than "Big Bang ex-member Jang Hyun Seung". Being introduce as "Big Bang's eliminated member" on articles somehow caused him to have antis. This also happens when T-News first wrote about BEAST during their "BAD GIRL" days.

"To think of it, must very hard to face the antis at such a young age, but I prefer to think 'One day, antis will switch sides. it's okay' ". "I have never had a dream of becoming a singer. I prefer being a dancer than a singer, but both of them are engaged in the music industry," he said with his high spirited appearance. "During rehearsal break, I would move my body to practice some choreography while refining my voice."

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Memories of Mini-album's title song 'SHOCK' will never be forgotten. Right after finishing the schedules, they went straight on practicing. "10 hours everday, for 5 days, we were all tired" HyunSeung explained. "We practiced extremely hard for the activities of promoting this album," he said.

BEAST and T-News met at 1:30PM. "I have not eaten yet, I'm hungry" said HyunSeung, who during the T-News 'Star and Handwriting' section, picked up a hot pink pen and wrote "I'm Hungry".

During theird debut days, BEAST's mission was to "Make Hyun Seung gain weight", was kind of hard because Hyun Seung is naturally skinny even though he's a junk food fanatic. AhGuJjim (T/N: Spicy Braised Monkfish), salted squid, etc. This BEAST member would eat everything including Ice Cream, Chocolate, etc. Members revealed "In the waiting room, or whenever you go and see HyunSeung, He will always be in the middle of eating something."

Today, might seem to be Hyunseung's pizza day. "Suddenly, I want to eat Pizza" he said, then he start writing pizza all over his paper. He really proved that he loves comfort foods. "I want to eat ice cream" He continues, and draw a picture of ice cream cone. Meat, especially ribs, is one of his favorite "I can eat (ribs) really well".
"I am a good eater but I don't gain weight easily. It's probably because of the practices i do," he said.

His interest of fashion clothing and shoes were described in his drawing. He likes to wear hats, especially the unique ones. HyunSeung also subscribes to Japanese Men Magazine "TUNE". He once gave an item to Big Bang's own G-Dragon, a Star Belt. "On Winter 2005,I gave it to G-Dragon. Looks like he has used it," he said.

Because he was so hungry, HyunSeung drew himself with a glasses and hungry expression. "I really cannot draw," he said. "I want to thank all the fans. BEAST made it here because of them" He continues, "I always see the fans cheers for us, that's why I force myself as my gratitude," he revealed his affection to the fans.

BEAST's Follow-up Song is 'Easy'


This time, beast-dol BEAST will shake the hearts of women with a sad sensitive ballad.

While shaking the first half of the year with their title song 'Shock' from their 2nd mini album ' Shock of the New Era', BEAST will come out with a ballad song for the first time since their debut.

BEAST's official agent hinted, "BEAST is preparing their follow-up song with a ballad. You will be able to see another charm from BEAST."

There is a high possibility that BEAST's follow-up song that will continue the popularity of 'Shock' will be the 'Easy', which is included in the 2nd mini album. With the Songwriters Kim Kibum and Kang Jiwon, the lyrics of 'Easy' are expected to strike the hearts of fans as it shows the sad melody and words of a run-away lover.

The dance group BEAST is receiving sympathy with their possibility of becoming ballad singers.

Last month on the cable channel Mnet 'M! Countdown', the different side of BEAST received favorable comments with their arranged singing of the orchestra version of Noel's 'Despite Holding On'.

An official agent, said "As much as they received love by their anticipated ideals as a dance group even though they were rookies, they are expected to expand their area with a ballad. The members also have a greed for diverse genres."

Once BEAST spreads their activities with 'Shock', they will be scheduled to meet the fans with the new faces of ballad singers in May.

SNSD Makes Cameo Appearance On "Oh! My Lady", Showing Loyalty To Choi Siwon

SNSD's Sooyoung, Jessica, and Hyoyeon is setting out to be Choi Siwon's supporters.

They are taking the cameo roles in SBS's "Oh! My Lady", which Choi Siwon is starring in.

On the recording which took place on the 7th, Sooyoung, Jessica, and Hyoyeon became models for Choi Siwon, who could not go up on the fashion show stage due to his health.

As SNSD is showing talent in different fields other than singing, they have no problems with fashion shows as well.

The producer of "Oh! My Lady" has stated, "Choi Siwon and SNSD are both in SM Entertainment, and because they have such a close relationship, it seems as they are appearing as cameos.
As SNSD members are appearing, it shows a greater image of the plot with celebrity, fans, and managers."

SM Entertainment stated, "SNSD and Choi Siwon has a very close friendship. The cameo appearance has been decided from this extension as well.
It's nice to see SNSD members and Choi Siwon helping each other."

Please Put on Makeup

SNSD's member Sunny revealed her story about the trip to an amusement without her manager

SBS' variety program, "Strong Hearts" was aired on the 6th and Sunny shared her secret story about going to
an amusement park with Hyo Yeon, Jessica and Tiffany.

During their break prior to the official announcement of, "Gee" the girls went to an amusement with scarfs but
no makeup. However, there were still some people who noticed them making their trip a bit difficult. That's why the 4 girls decided to wear the raccoon masks sold by the amusement. In the end, the girls were able to enjoy their rides with raccoon masks on.

Just before they were planning to go back, a high 180km speed roller coaster caught their eyes. They waited for an hour for the ride, but apparently in order to get on you had to take off all hats, scarfs and masks. The girls decided that after waiting for so long, it'd be a waste to not to ride it so they took of their masks and scarfs to enjoyed the roller coaster.

The girls thought their escape went unnoticed, however on the next day their company's atmosphere wasn't so good. The manager started off by asking, "Did you guys go to an amusement park?" and ended with, "If you were planning to go, you should have at least put some makeup on" the reason was because pictures of them without makeup was taken at the amusement park and now on the internet.

Sunny replied, "We really tried to stay hidden, but got caught." and continued on saying "Due to the release of these pictures, we were warned by our company to use makeup more often." which made everyone laugh.

'Cinderella Sister': 'Tired of Waiting' for Taecyeon

'When is Taecyeon going to appear?'

Many viewers who love Taecyeon, member of 2PM-turned actor, are impatiently waiting for his debut [on 'Cinderella Sister'].

KBS 2TV Wednesday-Thursday drama 'Cinderella Sister' represents Taecyeon's first foray into acting. Although it has already aired its 3rd episode, viewers are still waiting for him to appear.

Taecyeon is portraying the character of 'Jungwoo.' In the story, his character is in love with noona Eunjo (played by Moon Geun Young), who is the only person to have cared for him in his entire life. Although Taecyeon has yet to appear, his character has been portrayed by a child actor. Young Jungwoo (played by Moon Seok Hwan) has been seen occasionally up to and including the 3rd episode, giving viewers a taste [of his character]. Although he is currently a young and fat middle school student, he will presently be transformed into a charming and charismatic man, and this is the character that Taecyeon will portray.

According to the writers, Taecyeon is scheduled to appear for the first time on the 5th episode, to be aired next week. The impressive line-up includes Moon Geun Young (Eunjo), Chun Jung Myeong (Ki Hoon), and Suh Woo (Hyo Sun). Although in comparison to regular actors Moon Geun Young, Chun Jung Myeong, and Suh Woo, Taecyeon is relatively minor, his role as a 'simple and honest man' in love with Eunjo offers an indispensable mellow line to the story.

Furthermore, the story of how the rough, young Jungwoo who loves to eat and speaks in a dialect will transform into a charming and charismatic man through Taecyeon's strong body and acting ability, will be interesting. Another pivotal point is how Eunjo, who currently spends much of her time ordering young Jungwoo to run errands for her, will react to meeting the older, radically transformed Jungwoo.

Viewers who are tired of waiting for Taecyeon, who, unlike the other actors, has not yet made his appearance on the show, have been complaining and appealing to the scriptwriters. On the viewers' bulletin board are written messages like, 'Please show us Taecyeon soon,' 'When is Taecyeon showing up, I chose this drama because of Taecyeon. Please come out soon,' 'Is Taecyeon's that unimportant? Why has he not appeared yet,' 'When is older Jungwoo [appearing]?' and other similar comments that have been piling up.

Taecyeon, who will show the transformation of 'simple and honest man' Jungwoo, is scheduled to meet viewers on the 5th episode, to be aired on the 14th.

Beast Yong Junhyung, first-rate drawing skills revealed!

In preparation for their title song ‘SHOCK’, BEAST members went through shocking transformations but of them all, Yong Junhyung’s head-shave caught the eye of the public. As he shaved the sides of his head, leaving hair in the middle, he even earned the nickname ‘Tsunomon’ with his new hair style.

From practicing to the point till their leg muscles tore, they went through extensive training as said by Yong Junhyung. His charisma elevated from the times of promotion of helping sister group 4 Minute Hyuna’s ‘Change’. When asked by T-News in our corner ‘Star & Handwriting’, he hesitated a bit before grabbing the black pen as he began filling in the paper.

While holding the pen in his hand and writing away, Yong Junhyung’s tattoo caught our eye as we watched him. With ‘Carpe Diem’ written across his collar bone, we didn’t know what it meant. When we asked him the question, “Did you really get a tattoo?” he responded by saying, “I was always interested in tattoos and with preparations for this album, I got approval from the company as I got the tattoo in Indian ink. ‘Carpe Diem’ means ‘To give your all and to live in the moment’ in Latin.”

As a rapper, he has good sense. He drew in a mic with the caption “Still Rappin.’” He drew it as if the caption was purposely behind the mic which showed his sense. He said, “During ‘Shock’ practices, I was in risk of tearing my leg muscles. I went to an acupuncturist and they advised me to rest. I felt sorry as I couldn’t
practice like the other members” and “That was during the time of Hyuna’s ‘Change’ promotions and my leg hurt a lot then, but I had to hold it in and go on stage.”

His image became more refined and stronger, but during his debut days and in promotion for ‘Bad Girl’, he told T-News during the interview then, “My tongue is a bit thick so when I rap, I practice non-stop to articulate better.” Since then, his sincere image hasn’t changed one bit.

Everywhere he wrote the phrase ‘Get Shock!’ in anticipation for their new song ‘Shock’ but also writing ‘Prepix Daebak!’ in thanks to their choreography team Prepix.

The most eye-catching part was the cartoon drawing. With his bushy beard, messy hair, and a birthmark on his nose, he drew a man who isn’t even in proportion to size; h
e didn’t forget to draw in cute wings along with adding some yellow and red to it. In final to his drawing, he didn’t forget to explain that it was ‘Yoon Doojoon.’ Because of the corner ‘Danbi’ of MBC’s ‘Sunday Sunday Night’, he added the wings in meaning of him being an angel and doing charity work as he visited Haiti, Kenya, and many more. He said, “It’s better than the ‘Tsunomon’ drawing that Yoon Doojoon drew before” as he laughed. You could see the friendship between the two members as they fight over drawings.

Yong Junhyung wrote “So Beast!” which is BEAST’s official greeting along with his signature as finale to his drawing. He said, “I’m glad that we’re getting in response to the hard times we had in preparing along with the constant worrying. We’ll continue to try harder.”

Korea’s Top Female Idols with Eye-Smiles

today Nate is taking a look at girls who have perfect eye smiles. If you haven’t heard of this term before, it’s the crescent shape that an eye curves into when a person smiles. In Korea, guys tend to love girls who smile this way. So which girls have the best eye smiles?
1. SNSD’s Tiffany

When SNSD first debuted, Tiffany was immediately loved by many as she became known as ‘that girl with the eye smile’ on variety programs. Her smile was so well known that when she was asked to show off a talent on a show, she would just smile and the guys would melt.
2. KARA’s Seungyeon

Even though Seungyeon recently confessed that she believed her non-smiling face is not so great, her smiling face more than makes up for it! Though she’s one of the oldest members of KARA, she looks pretty young with to her cuteness.
3. f(x)’s Sulli

Every time Sulli moves, people go crazy. She is one of those rare girls that guys and girls love. Her pale white skin goes perfectly with her plump lips when she smiles. She’s nothing more than lovable and she never forgets to smile wherever she goes. From what I’ve seen of her, she seems like she smiles 24/7.
So what makes eye smiles so lovable? Well, Koreans attribute the look to “aegyo fat,” which is the area of skin underneath the eyes. One plastic surgeon said that this “aegyo fat” makes people look cuter and gives the illusion that they have bigger eyes.

KARA’s Lonely MV for My Mother

Though KARA has been tearing up the stages with their dance moves in Lupin these days, their third mini-album proves they also have a softer side.
In their third mini-album, Lupin, they have a ballad track titled Lonely. This song is included in another album as well. Lonely is featured on the movie My Mother soundtrack.
The music video for the song has been released and even though it doesn’t have the girls of KARA in it, it’s still entertaining. The video is actually quite sad because the people interviewed in the video reminisce on their mother-in-laws. It also includes clips from the movie itself.

This video makes me love KARA more and want to watch the film so check it out for yourselves

The movie will be released on the 22nd.
