A representative from 2PM's company JYP Entertainment said through T-News, "The filming for the music video of the title song of their new album has finished, and the work on recording the album has also entered the final stages. The atmosphere is not good right now because of the naval sinking, which makes it difficult to reveal an exact date for the comeback, but they will make their comeback by the end of April, as planned."

2NE1 participated in the online shopping mall 11st's most recent CF shoot. These girls worked the sexy image 100% in daringly exposing mesh dresses and vibrant patterns, while at the same time not revealing too much. In addition, they put on an air of glamour with their elegant hairstyles and provocative makeup.

The Wonder Girls were the first Korean artists to break the barrier of the American Billboard charts, giving hope to [other Korean artists]. They spent last summer in America, gaining experience by opening for American idol group 'Jonas Brothers' in about 50 venues across North America.
The Wonder Girls, who have gained much recognition in America for their potential, will be releasing a new album filled with the Wonder Girls' charm in a worldwide premiere in May, and will start their tour on June 4th.
Their first American headlining tour will be managed by top American performance agency Live Nation and will be called the Wonder World Tour. Tickets may be bought at www.livenation.com and www.ticketmaster.com. It is also notable that this is the first time ever that Live Nation is working with a Korean artist.
The Wonder Girls' debut English album(EP) is expected to include their new title song in English, Korean, and Chinese versions, as well as English versions of their hit songs 'Nobody,' 'So Hot,' and 'Tell Me,' and the 'Nobody Rainstone' English version and the 'Nobody Jason Remix.'

Actress Su Ae (Sunny, Bottom of the 9th Inning with 2 Outs) has just been confirmed as the female lead, joining actors Jung Woo-sung and Cha Seung-won in the action-packed blockbuster drama series.
According to Taewon Entertainment, who is producing Athena, the two female leads are part of the National Anti-Terror Service. Similar to the roles played by Kim Tae-hee and Kim So-yeon in IRIS, one is a special agent while the other is a profiler, although both are on the same team this time. Su Ae plays a profiler with the South Korean national intelligence agency with a calm disposition who is set up in a secret organization as a double agent (I’m thinking Alias, the SD-6 years?). Producers cast Su Ae after looking at actresses who combined beautiful looks with strong acting skills and an ability to convey subtle emotions.
Athena is aiming for a premiere in the latter half of the year, and will begin filming in June.
There's also one SNSD member participating!

In the afternoon, when I’m pretty much done with lunch, I rest for half an hour then go work out. After that, I rest for one-two hours, then I learn English.”
“Now there’s more time to spend with my mom… yeah,” Hankyung added with a little laugh.

Mir from the 5 member Boy Idol Group that Rain has raised has shown the public of a picture of himself with no makeup.
On the 9th (today) at dawn, Mir posted up a selca (self-camera) picture of himself with no makeup lying on his bed when he went to Thailand for filming of mnet ‘Show King M in Bangkok’ up onto his minihompy.
With no makeup at all, wet hair, and slight exposure Mir explained the picture as ‘Example of trying to take an early morning picture after erasing my makeup in Thailand and failing.’ Also on this day, not only did he expose his no makeup face but as well as a picture taking during his second year of highschol.
Upon looking at Mir’s pictures, the fans left many comments such as ?Oh! Cheolyong oppa!! What about a success example? Keke,’ ‘If the failed example is like this then how amazing is the success exampleㅜㅜ,’ ‘Cheolyong shoulder shoulder♡,’ ‘As expected Bang Cheolyong!!’
On the other hand, Last January Mir posted up two old photos of himself which he came out good and said ‘That time I was really popular. Really’ and had caused a lot of cheers from his fans.

Kikwang's interview - He actually got confused with his own drawing. "Is it a pig? or is it a bear?" he laughed. He also put the mark of Tai Chi*, "When you write, there's no thinking, like elementary school kids!"

Their reason for such action was not because of the lovey dovey “bed scene” Rain had with the actress Han Ye Seul, but because he had evidently broken the traffic law… by sprinting wildly across the road!
KBS believed that Rain’s disregard for traffic regulations by running across the road was inappropriate to be shown on their channel.
Rookie idol group Infinite groomed by hip hop group Epik High will be revealing themselves through a Mnet reality program.
7-member group Infinite has garnered much interests even before their debut, and they will be showing themselves for the first time on Mnet idol theatre ‘You are my elder brother’ aired on 12th April. For the purpose of the reality program, from the first episode, a high school female student will be introduced into their dormitory. Confused, the members reportedly asked “What is going on? What is the meaning of this?”.
Tablo then came in to explain, “The one person who succeeds as a elder brother will be the nation’s elder brother.”
Since they never had a female in their dormitory, the members were flustered as well as excited with the joining of the female high school student. “I always wished to have a younger sister. I have confidence to take good care of her.”
Mnet said, “With the numerous number of idol groups in the music industry now, many have taken the course of going on reality show to display their various charms.”
Similar to what 2PM did with ‘Wild Bunny’, Infinite will take on the challenge to be the nation’s top idol group through ‘You Are My Elder Brother’.
The first episode will be aired on 12th April at 7.30pm.
NGL, is ~infinitely~ excited. Finally, Tablo's letting us know the personalities behind the faces ^_^.
One would expect things to return to normal after programs were canceled last week in memory of those who were involved with the naval ship sinking tragedy.
But one certainly did not imagine that MBC would be facing another crisis after its labor union went on strike earlier this week to bring about the resignation of new MBC President Kim Jae Chul. They believe that Kim Jae Chul was turning MBC into a puppet station of the Lee Myung Bak administration.
The ongoing strike meant that normal operations were severely affected. MBC has thus announced on the 9th that in addition to airing re-runs of their weekend programs this week, the following programs will be canceled.
