"Model idols" F.Cuz are now truly models.

F.Cuz has been called "model idols" from their debut as their average height is past 180 cm and they flaunt good looks. Now their attempt at modeling is attracting attention.

The group got the modeling job from Jinon's and T-ara's Eunjung, who have been friends before debut. Eunjung asked him to model for T-Ara's online shop "T-ara.com."

F.Cuz's rep spoke with T-News and said, "Eunjung asked us to do it and we accepted her offer. Since all of the members are tall, we figured it'd be fine."

F.Cuz will photograph for T-ara.com on the 20th and then go on MBC FM4U's "Taeyeon's Chin Chin", and then will go back to the practice room.

Fans delay SNSD fan signing?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Popular girl group SNSD held a fan signing event for their second album Oh! on the evening of the 21st. The event was held at the Time Square in the Yeongdungpo district, Seoul.
Almost 1000 fans showed up for the event which was organized by Gyobok Library Hot Tracks, but the mob of fanboys couldn’t be controlled! There was lots of pushing and shoving with the fans up front screaming. The situation was so dangerous that the girls couldn’t even enter the building!
The event was delayed for 30 minutes while the commotion was put down, but eventually everyone got their albums signed peacefully although it wouldn’t be a complete set. Only 5 out of the nine members were present, with Taeyeon, Yuri, Seohyun and Sooyoung at another fan signing.
At this rate, the girls might have blood at their hands at one point! The power of beauty is astounding isn’t it?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Leader of 2NE1, CL is infamous for her outlandish clothes and style. Some would even say she’s the Korean version of Lady Gaga, that is, in terms of style. On a recently aired episode of KBS 2TV’s Entertainment Tonight, this princess of hip hop revealed her thoughts on her past outfits and costumes, including the controversy behind the black spandex outfit she wore at the 2009 SBS Gayo Daejun that revealed both her stomach and the tops of her bra.
On the show, CL commented, “The outfit was not that revealing. However, it was a bit unconventional and rebellious. I like clothes that are unconventional rather than those that expose a lot.” Although this statement will certainly raise eyebrows, CL has finally given her side on this controversy.
In addition to CL’s comment, fellow member Dara stated, “With the new year, I become one more year older and more tired.” Dara, you never fail to make the atmosphere more lighthearted.

U-Kiss Alexander raps in Cantonese on KJE's Chocolate

U-Kiss member Alexander created a comic atmosphere by rapping in Chinese.

On the latest episode of SBS’s Kim Jung Eun’s Chocolate, Alexander caught many people’s attention as he showed off his skill of rapping in Chinese. With a father from Hong Kong and a Korean mother, this idol spent most of his life growing up in Macao. Alexander can speak Chinese relatively well, and he showed this through rapping when senior singer Im Chang Jung requested it during the show.

In addition, Alexander and Im Chang Jung held a humorous Chinese acting battle, causing much laughter among the audience.

Be sure to watch U-Kiss as a guest on Kim Jung Eun’s Chocolate!

Here's his rap(after Dongho):

Rough Translation:
"I don't know what I can say, but I don't know- [insert gibberish and sounds of frustration here]" then he starts again with "Today I came to Chocolate, I don't know what to say, because I don't know what (the hell/on earth) they want me to say. Save/help me! what can I say?"

Onew to be in the musical, "The Brothers Were Brave"

SHINee’s Onew is stepping up to the challenge of a musical.

Onew was cast in a lead role as Joobong in the musical “The Brothers Were Brave” which will run from this coming April 1st until June 20th at the Coexartium. “The Brothers Were Brave” is a musical that was first brought to the stage in 2008, and became a hit with its strong plot and composition. It is about two brothers with a querulous relationship named Sukbong and Joobong who travel down to their hometown after receiving their father’s obituary. While trying to find the inheritance that was left to them, the brothers begin to understand each other and mend their relationship. Onew’s character Joobong, who always felt that he was less favored as the second son and has a hot temper, attends Seoul University and is an ex-convict.

There is much interest being garnered because this is Onew’s first time participating in a musical, and it has become known that there will be a kiss scene involved.

The production company told T-News through a phone call, “This is Onew’s first time participating in a musical. However, “Legally Blonde” was also Jessica’s first musical and she was able to do well. These days idol group members are skilled in both singing and dancing, and on top of that they work very hard, so we think that Onew will certainly do well and we aren’t worried.”

Onew’s agency SM Entertainment met with T-News and stated that “After being cast in “The Brothers Were Brave,” Onew has begun practicing singing, dancing, and acting. He will work hard to put forward a good image.”

Because Onew has already shown outstanding singing and dancing skills during SHINee promotions, his musical debut is becoming the center of interest.
