Family Outing Parodies Bo Peep Bo Peep and Heartbeat!

the seven original members of SBS Family Outing and two guests, Jo Han Sun and Kim Sung Soo, parodied T-ara’s ‘Bo Peep Bo Peep’ and 2PM’s ‘Heartbeat’.

The first team was made up of Big Bang’s Daesung, Jo Han Sun, Yoon Jong Shin and Kim Soo Ro. With colorful wigs and mini skirts, they performed a hilarious parody of T-ara’s ‘Bo Peep Bo Peep’ that had me rolling on the floor, laughing! I have to say, the highlight of their performance was Daesung’s solo dance.

The next team was made up of Park Hae Jin, Yoo Jae Suk, Kim Sung Soo and Kim Jong Gook. Their performance was none other than the parody of 2PM’s ‘Heartbeat’. Interestingly, they used the recording from the SBS Gayo Daejun’s girl group performance by KARA, After School and 4Minute, which made the performance even better.

Suju 4th album?!

Super Junior traded the cute look for sexiness in 2009’s Sorry Sorry, a hit track that launched the thirteen-member group to the top of charts last spring. Music-wise, the boys have mostly been on the DL as individual members have been working on their own activities, but it looks like the boys will be reuniting soon for another album!

Members Leeteuk, Shindong, Siwon, Eunhyuk and Donghae traveled to Thailand recently to make an appearance on KPN Awards, an American-Idol-esque reality show for aspiring singers. During their guest appearance, the boys were interviewed and revealed their recent experiences in Thailand through a translator. When the MC told the boys that one of the contestants covered SuJu’s track It’s You in a recent episode, leader Leeteuk complimented the contestant for singing in a foreign language.

10Asia's 10LINE analysis on Kim Hyun-joong

Kim Hyun-joong
Truth #1: He is a good-looking idol. He is a guy you would go out with regardless of his age. He is someone so pretty that he is likely to appear in a romance comic.
Truth #2: He was a runaway teenager who has experienced almost every part-time job out in the world. He is the most four-dimensional celebrity in Korea. He is a rock mania whose body would squirm at the cheesy lines he had to say in hit TV series "Boys Over Flowers."
Truth #3: He is a happy-go-lucky sort of person, unpredictable and hence, we become increasingly curious. Attracted.

South Korea Confronts Open Secret of Abortion

Woohae Cho for The International Herald Tribune
A group of doctors held a news conference in Seoul to ask “forgiveness” for having performed illegal abortions

SEOUL, South Korea — Displaying images of fetuses on her computer screen, Dr. Choi Anna described what happens to them during an abortion. For years, she said, she washed her hands in contrition after each one she performed.

Her colleague Dr. Shim Sang-duk said that until it halted the practice in September, their Ion Women’s Clinic in Seoul did 30 abortions a month, twice the number of babies delivered there. Nearly all were illegal.

“We sold our soul for money,” Dr. Choi said. “Abortion was an easy way to make money.”

Ye Ji Won, Choi Yeo Jin, and Yuri to be the female leads in future MBC sitcom

Ye Ji Won, Choi Yeo Jin, and SNSD's Yuri are set to be the leads in an untitled MBC sitcom.

This sitcom will follow "High Kick Through The Roof" where the three females will be sisters.

The show, which will focus on the three sisters' tangled love stories, will feature Ye Ji Won as a 30 year old single woman, imitating the popular 2004-2005 KBS2 sitcom "Old Miss Diary" that she also aired in.

After depicting a naive and sly "old maid" on "Old Miss Diary", Ye Ji Won came to be known as the sitcom queen so this new sitcom is highly anticipated.

The second daughter Choi Yeo Jin has been in SBS's "Dream", MBC's "My Girl," and SBS's "Surgeon Bong Dal Hee." Unlike the strong images she's portrayed, she will show a more comic side of herself through this role.

The youngest daughter is SNSD's Yuri as a high school student with no interest in college who is always getting herself into accidents.

Yuri also portrayed a high school student in a 2007 KBS sitcom "Unstoppable Marriage."

On another note, "High Kick Through The Roof" will end March 19th.
