Rain, “Ripping my shirt is better than singing a thousand songs on stage”

Singer Rain reveals his honest thoughts about ripping his shirt on stage.

He was on SBS Close Note 3 aired on 30th April when he said, “For me, as compared to the effect for singing a hundred or thousand songs, the effect with just ripping my shirt one time is bigger.”

He also revealed, “I’ve received dashing by other females after my 2nd album. But I didn’t have any strange relationship with other singers, they were all models.”

He was then asked by the MCs “So did you go out with them?”, Rain answered, “I was so innocent back then that I didn’t know that it was dashing. So when they called to ask me out for a meal late at night, I just rejected saying that I’m not hungry.”

Rain had revealed previously on another program, “I’ve dated 2 entertainers and 2 normal people. 2 before debut and 2 after debut.”

And when asked if Park JinYoung knows of his dating, “Park JinYoung knows.”

Seungri 10 Part 'Star Diary' Part 6 "She's my girl, so I know she'll stay by my side"

Seungri’s busy life in the entertainment industry meant he didn’t get the chance to date properly. His head was full of thoughts like ‘I’m busy as hell, how would I ever have time for a girlfriend?’ Even when he met girls who appealed to him, he would think ‘Should I text her?’ ‘Maybe I should talk to her first’, but he never went past that point.

“I don’t like breaking up.”

Like the rest of us, Seungri also has loving yet embarrassing, cruel memories of his first love. She was a model student who he met back in Gwangju when he was a part of the dance team ‘Episode 1’.

“I saw her while I was dancing, she just stood right out to me.”

Rappers Yuri, Sooyoung and Yoona cut from HahaMong Show

"The three of them were addressing especially Seungri and at the end also Daesung. Yuri is rapping how Seungri is in the same college as her and that he promised her (in an interview) that he will introduce her to guys on the campus but he still hasn't done that. Then Sooyoung says that Yuri has been waiting a long time already for him to do that. XD Sooyoung also tells SeungRi that even though he is a sunbae in terms of debuting, but now he's her hoobae at college and she was also teasing Yuri that she is her hoobae (while Yuri is older) and then Yuri kept on saying sunbaenim to SY. Yoona was saying something about being friends with Seungri (since he is the same age as her) She also said something about Seungri greeting her and then Yuri asked why doesn't he greet you? and then Sooyoung said something to Daesung. She just said Daesung and then she corrected herself and said Daesung shi. XD She said she can't speak informal to him (cuz before she was talking informal to Seungri but it's ok since they are the same age)."

[STAR DIARY] Lee Min-ho - Part 5

His destined connection to the drama "Boys Over Flowers", which turned Lee Min-ho into a star that he is today, began around the time he was doing stage greetings for the film "Our School E.T."

"I actually found out from a newspaper article that I was cast in the role of Goo Joon-pyo. I didn't even know I had been cast for the show before I read it." In fact, producers of "Boys Over Flowers" had auditioned many actors for the part even after they had met with Lee Min-ho. "They kept holding auditions and there were many actors who were waiting to try out. I think it was like non-verbal pressure, like saying 'Good luck, we got many other actors.' Haha."

Seungri’s opinion on G-Dragon’s Fashion Sense

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

During the first episode of the ‘HaHa Mong Show,’ Big Bang’s youngest vocalists, Seungri and Daesung, came clean with their feelings towards their fellow Big Bang members.

Through the released music video, ‘Like Big Bang,’ which was released in honor of a segment in the show known as ‘Free Rap Music Video Talk Show,’ Seungri spoke of G-Dragon’s fashion sense.

In this music video, Seungri sang, “To follow this generation’s fashion leader, G-Dragon, is embarrassing. His style is covered all throughout Dongdaemun!” Dongdaemun, which is the largest shopping center in South Korea, is known for its diversity in styles offered and is often called the fashion “heart” of the country.

Shocked, the guests of the ‘HaHa Mong Show’ asked for Seungri’s true opinion on his leader’s sense of style, asking “but isn’t [G-Dragon] a fashionista?” In reply, Seungri gave a story to show just how crazy G-Dragon’s fashion sense can be. He explained, “There was this jacket that G-Dragon once wore [which I liked] until he turned around, revealing a huge hole in the back.”

Seungri then added, “[G-Dragon] is even able to wear girls’ sizes [in clothing,]” which further surprised the guests of the show.
