SNSD is now 20+

SNSD's Seohyun (real name Seo JuHyun) will graduate high school on February the 9th.

On the morning of the 12th, SNSD's Seohyun confirmed that she would attend her high school's (Jeonju Fine Arts High School) graduation ceremony.

With Seohyun, who was born in 1991, graduating from high school, none of the nine members of SNSD remain high school students. Now in Korea's eyes, a group containing members of ages 20 and above has appeared. After maknae Seohyun graduates from high school, SNSD will be able to show off a different kind of charm.

On one hand, Seohyun was accepted into the class of 2010 at Dongbuk University as an Arts major.

I always forget she's still in high school. ^^; Each album has been more "adult" than the last, hopefully this means we can look forward to a mature/sexy SNSD. They can't stick to lace and lollipops forever.

"I wish the two were dating in real life."
"They match the most out of any WGM couple."
"It looks real, not for TV."

Big Bang's Text Pranks!

Big Bang talked about their "Big Bang Breakup Text Incident" on January 12's "Strong Heart."

Daesung first revealed, "When Big Bang discovers a new way to prank, they do that same prank for 2 months. Taeyang changed his number and first decided to prank us with text messages."

He continued, "Taeyang first wrote as 2NE1 Minzy saying 'Oppa! I love you.' I was worried over how to let her down easy without hurting her but then the next day Taeyang revealed that it was his prank."

After Taeyang, G-Dragon posed as Seungri and sent a text message to Daesung saying "Can I sleep next to hyung again tonight?"

Daesung said, "Even though I'm close with Seungri now, at that point we were somewhat distant so I got a strange feeling after that text. Since these pranks kept circling among members, a level of distrust started to build up. We even though texts from our manager talking about our schedules were pranks."

Then, a message posing as YG head Yang Hyun Suk came saying "There is no more Big Bang." The members all gathered and confirmed that it was none of their own pranking, and then went to go see Yang Hyun Suk.

Big Bang asked him, "What did we do wrong for you to say that we're going to break up?" Yang Hyun Suk replied surprised, "What breakup?" After he found out about the origin of them pranking each other, he rebuked the members for doing such extreme pranking.

MC Kang Ho Dong asked, "Did you ever find the sender of that text?" Daesung replied, "It's still a mystery."

YEH & Kim Hyunjoong for Basic House

The Spring 2010 collection from Basic House is already here and who better to don those stylish clothes than the much-loved Yoon Eun-hye (YEH) and Kim Hyun-joong.

Yes, Kim Hyun-joong (of SS501 and Boys Over Flowers fame) is teamed up with everybody’s Coffee Prince darling for Basic House’s Spring 2010 collection where the key to stylish casuals lies in mixing and matching.

YEH seems to be the constant for Basic House while her “leading man” keeps getting changed. In 2008, YEH modelled with Olympic gold medallist Park Tae-hwan. In 2009, she shared catalogue space with Hyun Bin.

It just shows that YEH’s star is still shining brightly…well, at least much brighter than the other Basic House models. I wonder how long Kim Hyun-joong will last?

Her winter catalogue shoot with Hyun Bin was so qt and pretty I wanted to buy everything.

DC'ers rank 2PM members

The reveal of 2PM's 'ranking chart' is attracting much attention. Through fans of DC Inside, the rank of 2PM members such as 'JYP Entrance Order', 'Age,' 'Realistic Age Order,' and normal rankings such as 'Amount of air time,' 'Amount of muscles,' and 'Level of gluttony.'

What's eye catching is Jaebum's rank in the 'Amount of muscles' section where he is confidently #1. Being nicknamed Jjit Jaebum, he proudly shows off his perfect abs and is closely followed by Taecyeon, Chansung, and NichKhun.

In 'Level of popularity within the fandom,' Nichkhun is pushed off the rankings with the reason listed as 'God's territory,' explaining that he cannot be compared to the other human members.

Lastly, in the 'Level of internet usage' section, Wooyoung and Taecyeon take the first two ranks with Ok Taecyeon's nickname of 'Oktizen.' Nichkhun took the last half of the rank because of his lack of Korean skills.

2PM will be ending their album activities on the 17th at SBS Inkigayo and is planning to head into varieties and personal activities.

JYP impressed by Rainbow member Jae Kyung’s sexy dance

Looks like Rainbow’s Jae Kyung has a new fan in JYP / Park Jin Young.
On KBS2TV’s ‘Sweet Night’ Jae Kyung put on a very sexy dance for the participants of the show. This impressed everyone, but none more than Park Jin Young who couldn’t keep his jaw off the floor. He also commented on how he was surprised with her talent as well as her fine physical shape. I don’t think anyone could argue with him on that, she’s so hot.

KBS variety show “1 Night 2 Days” is aiming at visiting the South Pole for a shoot in March, according to the show’s producer on Tuesday.

“We haven’t set a detailed schedule yet but are laying out our plans with March in mind,” Na Young-suk told Asia Economic Daily over the phone.

He added cautiously though, that the date may be pushed back since it is not easy coordinating the schedules of the cast composed of singers, comedians and actors. “We’re having a hard time setting a time frame because it’s not easy for everyone to push back or miss out on all their other activities for two whole weeks.”

“1 Night 2 Days” is the first of a two-part weekly show titled “Happy Sunday” starring hosts Kang Ho-dong, Lee Seung-gi, Eun Ji-won, MC Mong, Kim C and Lee Su-geun. The six go on the road to travel to various locations throughout Korea which are relatively unknown to the general public.

“Happy Sunday” is the most popular show on television in the non-drama category with its ratings recently hitting the upper 20 percent range. The show won the award for best TV program at the year-end 2009 KBS Entertainment Grand Prix.

Lots of rumors and press articles regarding this particular trip in the last few months.  PD Na made it official today with his announcement to the media.  1 Night 2 Days is in the midst of preparing for their Antarctica trip, tentatively to start in March.   The members openly discussed about the trip during the last episode, a very good sign that things are being ironed out successfully.   This will be one trip to remember guys!
