Jiyeon is a Thief

For the "Boyfriend Styling" mission of TV show "T-araDotCom", T-ara's maknae Jiyeon was caught stealing her unnie's items.

In the last episode of "T-araDotCom", the girls began their final mission to decide who would ultimately be the manager of the online shopping mall. They began to stylise "boyfriends" to help them expand their shopping mall range to include a men's collection.

The T-ara members had 20 minutes to create three styles for their male models, leading up to a runway show with their final selection.

In the episode, maknae Jiyeon complained "I can't even dress myself that well, how could I style anyone else?" before showing her envy at the items that the other members had selected. Jiyeon drew great laughter by being caught dressing her model in a shirt she stole from Soyeon. When Soyeon complained "Jiyeon always steals stuff" to which Jiyeon rebuffed "I wasn't stealing, I was just having a look"

But later, Jiyeon tried to snatch something from Hyomin but was stopped when Hyomin threw her body to protect her items. Jiyeon's excuse this time was that she "just wanted to touch it a bit" and that "it looked like nobody owned it" but eventually apologized.

Hyori gets herself caught in yet another plagiarism scandal

Lee Hyori, Korea's Artist of the Year, is in BIG trouble!

The 30-year-old Korean pop star has just been caught allegedy plagiarizing from Canadian pop group, Cookie Couture - The group released their track, Boy Bring It Back, in 2008 and Lee just released her very similar track, Bring It Back, this month.

Cookie Couture's Stacey Maroske said in a statement to ZackTaylor.ca yesterday,
"I was shocked when I first heard Lee Hyori's 2010 recording. I couldn't believe how similar the song was. It's almost an exact replica, even down to our vocal riffs. I mean we worked really hard as a group to write this song and perfect it back in 2008. It just seems really unfair that this song is being sold on iTunes by an artist who has stolen the song from us. It's plagiarism, and we hope we see justice."

Nobody from Lee's camp could be reached for comment about the alleged plagiarism.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For while the alpha girls who are exceptional in their work and abilities, many are hopeless when it comes to practicalities such as dating or managing their money.

"Others envy my daughter, who's a doctor, but she's a pain in the neck to me," grumbles Hwang (61) concerning her 35-year-old single daughter. "Who would understand my worries?" Just that morning, the daughter rang asking her mother to take care of her unpaid electricity bills. Hwang used to brag about her doctor daughter, but now she is starting to worry about how much longer she will have to look after her. Kim, in her 50s, shares the same concerns about her daughter, a university instructor. She's appalled that her educated daughter has declared to marry a divorced man, and that she was the one who asked him for his hand.

Mothers of so-called alpha girls -- girls or women who beat their male counterparts in all areas from academic prowess to sports -- have a tough job in Korea.
