D-NA is Open To Criticism



[Edaily SPN YangSeungJun] Because all the members of D-NA like DBSK so much, when they are monitored the same image comes out. "Truthfully mean comments hurt us but we don't hate them. Since we're rookies, it's and honor to be compared to DBSK sunbaes. We think criticism is essential. If we didn't care then it would be unlawful." (Dae Guk Nam Ah)

The average age of 17.4, the 5 member rookie boy group Dae Guk Nam ah. Even though the 5 boys are young they're a huge hit. An emphasized harmonized debut single "Admiring Boy" and a concept that is similar to DBSK's 'Hug.' "Though we got criticized, these criticisms make us want to work harder," says leader Suhoon. Dreaming of being the second DBSK is the five members of Dae Guk Nam Ah Suhoon, Hyunchul, Hyunmin, Injoon, and Jihwan. 'Best influence in the music industry artist', they were not the aspirations containing 'False Fame'. The five boys, to the abilities of their ages, used harmony, dance, and amazing skills to capture the attention of the fans. To make it long, 5 years, to make it short, 1 year and a half the 5 boys went through harsh practice and the hidden talent in their lives were revealed and prevailed. Collapse )

Supreme Team is close to BEAST



You may have noticed that Supreme Team did a little bit of BEAST’s Shock dance during their performance of Step Up on Music Bank. Who knew the hip hop duo was so close with the charismatic idol group BEAST?

BEAST’s Yong Joon Hyung and the members of Supreme Team have been very close even before their respective debuts. They shared the title as ‘rappers’ and therefore became best friends in no time. Furthermore, Simon D of Supreme Team and Lee Ki Gwang of BEAST are both in the MBC variety show, Hot Brothers.

In case you missed their little dance break, here is the video. Watch out for the last 20 seconds!


It’s nice to see two groups of the total opposite genres get along so well. I hope to see more of them!

Jo Kwon slept with Sunye at a train station

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On a recent episode of Intimate Note 3, best friends Kim Jong Kook and Hong Kyung Min invited 2AM members, Jo Kwon and Seulong in an attempt to get closer with them. In this episode, the idol spoke up about his famous tight-knit friendship with fellow JYP group leader, Sunye of the Wonder Girls.

In this episode, Jo Kwon confessed, “I have cried for Sunye.”

Jo Kwon then told a story back from his trainee days and shared,

“In the past, there was a time when I went to Gangnam to eat dongkatsu with my friends because I was so hungry. I had to get back to Suwon but realized that I didn’t have 1300 won for the bus ride. I called my close friend Sunye and she came with the 1300 won. However, the last bus had already left. Eventually, we both ended up falling asleep at the train station, leaning against each other. Then we walked back to the practice room for two hours at six in the morning. That day was my 6th year anniversary as a trainee. I was so sad.”

Jo Kwon even confessed that, back in his trainee days, he often thought, “Do I have to invest all my time just to practice? Is it even guaranteed that I’ll do well if I debut as an artist?”

Jo Kwon just keeps adding on to the list of things to make his wife Ga-In jealous, but you have to admit that this is kind of adorable in its own way.

Misleading title is misleading. But aw I love their friendship.

Kim Yu-na Fails to Defend Title



Olympic champion Kim Yu-na failed to defend her world title, as she took a silver medal at the World Figure Skating Championships in Turin, Italy Sunday (KST).

The 19-year-old scored 130.49 points in the free skating for an overall of 190.79. She wound up seventh with 60.30 in the short program Saturday after under-rotating a triple flip and missing a layback spin.

Mao Asada of Japan claimed her second world championship title with 197.58 and Finnish Laura Lepisto placed third on 178.62.

Japanese Miki Ando finished fourth and short-program leader Mirai Nagasu of the United States dropped to seventh.

Kim, who looked to rebound from her disastrous performance in the short program, landed her first four jumps cleanly, but she fell on a salchow jump and botched a double axel before wrapping up her routine.

Kwak Min-jung finished 22nd in her first appearance of the World Championships.

The 16-year-old, who racked up 47.46 points in the short, earned 73.01 in the free skate segment for 120.47 total.

2ne1 is the best girl group in Beast’s eyes



They were asked what who their fave girl group is, and Ki Kwang was like, our company’s 4Minute ^^; and being all cutesy LOL but then they were like seriously and so they had to think and then Ki Kwang saiddd

“Well, I guess it’d have to be, how similar to us, they’re pursuing their own music, 2NE1 who is always working hard and showing their unique colours. They’re a really cool girl group.”

And then Doojoon replies and says
“Ki Kwang-kun said that they’re too great for us, we can’t even dream about it.”

And then they somehow end up at the conclusion that all the girl groups are too great for them and how they should simply stick to 4Minute. LOOL.

Daniel Henney Goes To The Outback

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Daniel Henney will make his first appearance on a reality show, “Daniel Henney Goes to Outback”, next month on April 2, airing on local cable network O’live.

The model-turned-actor attended the press conference for the show, and he has said that reality show is very much different than appearing in dramas. Being in a reality show feels harder because it doesn’t have a fixed ’script’ as to what he needs to say, unlike acting in a drama. “But still, it was interesting work experience.” “Daniel Henney Goes to Outback” is an adventure reality show about Daniel Henney and Park Seong Woo’s journey in western Australia. Park Seong Woo is the winner of the latest cooking contest dubbed “It Chef”, which was hosted by the global restaurant chain, Outback Steakhouse. Both have traveled there to reinvent the restaurant’s New Year’s limited menu. The production crew plan to return to Australia to prepare for the show’s next season.
The reality show was filmed back in February for 15 days and will debut on the Olive cable station on April 2nd at 10:00pm.

Rain the wrestler flaunts his strength on the streets



Officially back to Korea for his impending activities on BACK TO THE BASIC as a singer, Rain has launched off his public appearance, by wrestling his fans on the bustling streets of Myung Dong! Stripping off his elegant image of a world superstar, Rain Jung Ji Hoon has once again lived up to the name of the most perfect man in Korea by defeating all four participants!

The reason for displaying such an exotic show (?) was actually to keep a promise he made with the netizens, for a segment on KBS 2TV’s talk show, Win Win. This corner, namely Keep the Promise Project, follows a unique format where the show offers the netizens to pledge to perform an anything of bizarre nature, in exchange of the celebrity committing something out-of-normal as well. On this very episode, Rain was to keep the promise of having a wrestling battle on the open streets.

To give a sneak peek of its “bizarreness,” that big brown thing with four legs you see in the pictures below is an actual cow, whereas those screaming people in the background are actual random pedestrians…
