There’s been so much information coming out about the new SBS pilot program HahaMong Show and I’m sure every little tidbit is making you get really excited.

To increase more hype, It has been revealed that SNSD’s Sooyoung wants to get closer to Big Bang’s Daesung.

Sooyoung said, “I think it’s very brave for a female idol to admit that Big Bang is their ideal type. All SNSD members wants to get closer with Daesung. When I saw him get close to Taeyeon on Family Outing, I got really jealous.”

I’m sure Daesung started to blush as he heard this. Daesung replied in kind, “I got a good vibe from her in the dressing room.”

Why does every female idol love Daesung?

KARA’s Jiyoung, T-ara’s Eunjung, the Brown Eyed Girls and now all of SNSD (except Tiffany probably)? Daesung should take advantage of this chance.

10Asia Interviews Singer K.Will

My name is K.Will. Songwriter Bang Shi-hyuk came up with my name Will. I was a bit concerned by the fact that there is a yogurt with the same name but I liked the future-oriented vibe it gave off. It was also the trend at the moment -- to make such names. J-Lim, G-Soul and then K.Will. My real name is Kim Hyung-soo.

I was born on December 30, 1981. I could have been a year younger was I born just a little bit later so it's a slightly disappointing birthday. And I thought the day would never come but I'm 30 now, although I don't really feel it because I usually hang out with people who are older than me. I'm at a cute age.

I'm an only child. But I think my mother raised me not to be like an only child. I debuted on television through KBS music show "Yoon Do-hyun's Love Letter" but she didn't watch it because she was busy watching a debate show. And everyone worried she would cry at my first concert but she told me very cheerfully afterwards that she didn't cry and had a lot of fun. She said it didn't seem like she was watching her own son. (laugh)

Max Matsuura: 'the 3 are forgiving towards the 2, they don't have these feelings at all.'

Ok gaiz, this is pretty big. it's turning into a massive tweet entry.

Max has been sending some emo Tweets our way for the past few hours.

They started with him talking about Changmin (no idea what happened between them, must have missed this) and it basically ended in him saying the guys were seriously divided now.

He's deleted pretty much all of them already.

Last update on the matter:


'As for me, I'm not angry about anything, I think something must have been going on with Changmin as well. So I won't make such unnecessary tweets again. Let's put the matter to an end with this.'

Okay, so I'm just kind of crying really hard right now. I pretty much lost the faith all in one Tweet there.

Siwon's Improving English / SHINGLISH: SS2 Manila

Choi Siwon, the resident abs-king and pastor of Super Junior, is learning more and more English! Although still with a heavy accent (bordering on gibberish), SHINGLISH is still too adorable~!

Of course, he talks about God (press conference video), and about "high expectations" and "not feeling too well" during the concert in Manila.
*He was sick and probably very tired from filming (he only arrived on the day of the concert itself, separate from the whole group), so he wasn't able to perform in the last 2 songs.

Rain issues a $2 million dollar lawsuit

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Looks like Rain isn’t out of the legal storm yet – although he won his last lawsuit, the idol is now involved in another lawsuit worth 2 billion won (~$2 million USD). Rain and seven other investors are all suing J.Tune Creative for embezzling the investment they put into the company, meaning that Rain, fortunately, isn’t the one under fire this time around.
