After School’s Kahi admits that she dated a celebrity before her debut


After School’s big unnie leader Kahi admitted on the most recent episode of Strong Heart that she dated a celebrity before she officially debuted as a singer.

Most people know that Kahi used to work as a backup dancer for singers such as BoA before debuting as an idol herself. On the May 4th episode of Strong Heart she was asked, “You’re at an age where you have to think about marriage. How do you date?”

She answered, “I haven’t dated since my debut. Before I debuted, I would date by putting on a mask, a hat and sunglasses. We would hide and meet up together.”

Then, smart detective Lee Chae Young commented, “If you sneaked around when you were dating before you debuted, does that mean you were dating a celebrity?”

Kahi was shocked at first but she didn’t deny the fact. She even accepted it like a cool girl she is. We all know no other girl group member would do so.

Well… I think we all know who it is.

Rain tired of fraudulent paternity claims



SEOUL: Korean superstar Rain revealed that he once had a deranged woman claim she was carrying his child, when he appeared on Korean variety show "SBS E!TV" recently, reported Chinese media.

"Around the time I was renovating my condo, a woman I have never met before was sitting and waiting for me at home," said Rain.

"The woman threatened me and said 'I am pregnant with your baby'. They eventually... found out she was suffering from mental illness."

The 27-year-old singer-actor added that he even had women overseas claiming to be carrying his child.

"It seems like in every country there is at least one woman who claims to be pregnant with my child," said Rain, who insisted that he was "an innocent man".

Rain, who last starred in the Hollywood action flick "Ninja Assassin", will return to the small screen in the upcoming Korean drama series "Fugitive", his first drama in five years, after "A Love To Kill".

"Fugitive" will be helmed by the same producer behind the hit Korean period drama "The Slave Hunters". It is slated to go into production in June and air some time in October.

Korean Youth Are "Mama's Kids"



It seems that most teenagers and young people here are mama's kids in some sense ― they think it is natural that their parents should pay for their college tuition as well as their wedding.

Statistics Korea released "2010 Youth Statistics," Tuesday, which it releases annually in May, commemorated as the month of family here.

The glimpse into the life and mentality of young people, aged between 15 and 24, shows that they think it is natural to depend economically on their family ― nearly 98 percent said parents should pay for college tuition, and 86.7 percent said the same about wedding expenses.

BEAST: Kikwang's Dirty Little Secret



Is it just me or following the Hollywood Bowl, rookie group BEAST have become even more popular than before? At this point, they're probably the rookie group with the most rapidly expanding fanbase, other than 2NE1. And by all accounts they've earned the adoration; reports from fans at the Korean Music Festival are positive, saying the boys were accessible, friendly, polite and yes, hot. Who doesn't want to be a B2ty these days?
So, in light of the group's rising success I figured I should attempt to get to know them better - curse my Googling skills, I may have found out too much.

BEAST fans recently translated the Star Interview, an in depth interview featuring the group as a whole and individual members in their own segments. As the first part of their group interview, the members played a game that had them answering the typical idol questions - you know, the funny, silly invasive ones. What's interesting is the boy's response to a not-so -typical answer.
