MBLAQ Lee Joon's tears, surprise hidden camera at a cold filming atmosphere!

In Idol Army season 5, MBLAQ's ace Lee Joon falls into a trap of a hidden camera which made him cry.

MBLAQ did a parody of the drama "Queen Seon Deok", the concept was to complete missions given to them (while doing the parody).

This filming was a hidden camera set up for Lee Joon to fall into the trick he wouldn't have expected.

While completing the missions, like hitting some special hard gourd with the head, and shooting arrows using the feet and etc, Lee Joon went through all the difficulties without a single word of complain.

However, it all started when he received cold comments from the members he trusted. Whenever they failed at the mission they would find fault at Lee Joon, making the atmosphere very cold. To bottle up his feelings, Lee Joon would keep going to the back of the stage alone and just stare blankly at the script.

Eventually, leader Seunho made comments like "That's not the way to do it", making Joon really upset. In the very cold atmosphere, Lee Joon barely had to straighten out his feelings and continue with the filming.

Finally when the members revealed that it was a hidden camera, like a girl, Joon's tears came rolling down as he lie above Thunder's knee.

You'll be able to catch Lee Joon's warm tears on Idol Army season 5, 13th January, 6pm.

A rep from Lee Minwoo’s management company told Newsen in a phone interview on 13th Jan, “Lee Minwoo has been discharged from the hospital today, and he’s currently resting at his own home.”
Lee Minwoo suffered injuries to his neck, waist and spine, and also showed signs of a concussion. He was transferred to a Seoul hospital on 25th Dec. Following that, he had to usher in the new year in the hospital and also had no choice but to cancel his concert ‘M’s Suite Room’, previously scheduled for 16th and 17th Jan at Ewha Women’s University.

BEAST’s Doojoon is a Buckaroo!

BEAST’s leader Yoon Doojoon has been chosen to model for premium jeans brand Buckaroo.

BEAST experienced explosive popularity after debuting with their single “Bad Girl.” They are now promoting “Mystery,” which is receiving just as much, if not more love from fans. It has been less than 100 days since their debut, but Doojoon has already been selected to model for Buckaroo alongside Shin Se Kyung.

Doojoon was a soccer player and athlete, therefore he has an extremely tough and fit body. He is also referred to as “Stone Thighs” by the fans, which is why he is a top candidate to model jeans.

Shin Se Kyung (Queen Seondeok, Ogamdo) is also the girl in that LG Cyon CF with Bigbang.

yaaayyyy~ seob will probably watch the shoot very closely. *_______*

Interview with Kibum about the movie "Jumunjin"

Watching "The phantom of the opera" to study the character

"Ghost is a person who can't forget his ex-lover, he can't leave a pension in the forest in Kangwondo and he lives like a phantom. Because of the acting for this character, I have to question myself continuously <I'm still alive or I'm dead. Why I am here ?>. I feel like I has become a philosophical and contemplative person"

The movie had started filming when the screenplay hadnt been finished yet. Therefore, Kim Kibum hadnt understood his character so well when he first attended the filming, moreover he is still in his early 20s' so it was very difficult for him to use his body to express one person's deep sorrow because of love

"During 2 months, I avoided contacting with people and spend almost the time in the dark places. I had tried my best to be able to be mysterious like the character <phantom> in the movie <The phantom of the opera> which I was recommended by the director".

"We (Kibum & Bora) sometime drink together. Also, the winter came to Jumunjin quite soon so I remember we got to see the first snow in November"

Taeyang's OSEN Interview: Dec. 31, 2009

TaeYang: “He Looks Serious for a Reason”

People shine when they do what they love best. Probably that is why he shines so brightly when he sings and dances on stage. This guy who sat down with me for an interview today is a cute, shy young man but once on stage he turns into a performer who is brimming with charisma and sizzling with sexiness. His name is TaeYang.

He was barely 20 when I first met him. Obviously he has constantly grown since that day – a fact that makes me always look forward to what he will bring next.

Little Tiger JK vs Tiger JK Junior

Little Tiger JK

There are 3 things that are impossible to hide: love, sneeze, and flowing talents. Jo Kwon, the leader of 2AM with amazing vocal abilities, smoothly spitted out "JYP style rap" for the first time, showing his force that he built up during the 8 years he spent as a trainee. Of Jo Kwon, songwriter Lee Minsoo said that "Tiger JK is Jo (j) Kwon (k)", and audience agreed, saying that "indeed, Jo Kwon is strong". Of course, his rap skills are not good enough to be compared to that of an intoxicated tiger. But Jo Kwon, who possesses numerous talents (including jazz skit, Korean traditional music, English, dance, acting, digital voice) is equally scary as a tiger ripping apart a dried persimmon. Not to forget, the fact that this feast of talents has been growing since 10 years ago makes us freeze over with fear. 10 years from now, what will he be!

SNSD's trainer: “We never make any of the members go on 800kcal diets”

So Nyeo Shi Dae’s trainer comes out to clarify on recent criticisms of the members’ diet.

So Nyeo Shi Dae’s personal training team Ace Team Kim JiHoon representative recently had an interview with mbn and he refutes the 800kcal diet of the girls portrayed by broadcast show as being “over” and reveals the behind-story to it.

The truth is that there was misinformation of the broadcast show and the trainer who was interviewed then was not the girls’ trainer.

He clarifies, “We did not make any of the So Nyeo Shi Dae members take a 800kcal diet for a day, and depending on their activities, there were many times we gave them more than 2000kcal for their diet.”

“But ahead of their concert, because they need to make some adjustments for it, the members get about 1200~1500kcal on the average with the 6 major nutrients included in their meals.”

And when asked about the diet and exercise methods of celebrities, Kim said, “There is actually not much different for the celebrities. They lead about the normal lifestyle like anyone, the only difference for the So Nyeo Shi Dae members is that they are idols with many activities and high energy consumption, and hence they will need diet with high calories.”

He ended with, “I want to apologise to the SNSD members and related officials. I hope that there will not be anymore misinformed reports about the girls’ diet in the future.”
