2NE1 TV Season 2 in the works?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Last year, many fans of the girl group 2NE1 got a chance to get up close and personal through 2NE1 TV. Now, thanks to the group’s very own Sandara Park, season 2 of the show just might be heading towards a computer near you!

Via her me2DAY account, Sandara uploaded the three photos below. There was no mention of 2NE1TV but in two of the images, one can see a Sony handycam attached to the front of the shopping cart that leader CL is riding in.

When the group made their debut last year, we got to get to know each member better through the show as it took us into the life that is 2NE1. Fans were able to get a better look into their professional career but also their life outside of it.

Though there has not been an official confirmation, it seems most likely that the whole thing is a part of 2NE1TV’s 2nd upcoming season.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As you may recall, Super Junior’s Shindong proposed in code language to his girlfriend in the “Thanks To” section in Super Junior’s fourth album. It looks like he’d like to get married in the next few months!

The idol revealed more details about this matter during a recent press conference. He said, “I’ve already met with her friends and they know we’re dating. Honestly, I want to get married in October.”

Shindong also talked about how his girlfriend has been avoiding him since the proposal. He said, “Since so many people have been paying attention to this matter, she’s having a hard time.”

I guess she’s a shy girl. Let’s hope she isn’t getting cold feet!

Wonder Girls featured on Pollstar - "The Wonders of K-Pop"


Unless you were noble enough to actually go with the family member you bought Jonas Brothers tickets for last summer, you probably missed the Wonder Girls, one of the coolest things to come out of South Korea since soju.

The five-member girl group – Sunye, Ye-eun, Sohee, Yubin and Hye-rim – is the creation of South Korean singer-songwriter and entertainment mogul Park Jin-Young. (Think of them as a sort of Asian Mary Jane Girls without all the Rick James freakiness.) The girls were all selected through auditions held by Young and his talent agency and label, JYP Entertainment.

Wonder Girls debuted in Korea in 2007 and quickly attained massive popularity with their tight, five-part, En Vogue-inspired harmony and flawless choreography.

Wow I'm surprised they used their Korean names.

[10.05.24] Super Junior: Our role model is Shinhwa

Super Junior has recently come back with their 4th full album ‘Bonamana’. In an interview conducted in Apgujung recently, Super Junior shared their thoughts about their journey since their debut and their future plans.



◇Our role model is Shinhwa

This is their 6th year together since their debut in 2005, and they have gone on to become veterans respected by the junior idol groups. After their debut up until now, they have been enjoying great popularity and have remained at the top of their game, but they have often been troubled by the team’s position and identity. Leader Lee Teuk and Heechul, the eldest in the group, both see Shinhwa as their role model. Heechul said, “I want to have the status like that of the Shinhwa hyungs. I don’t have the intention of fighting it out with the juniors. It’d be good if we could be like Shinhwa, doing well as sonbae idols and taking good care of the juniors at the same time.”

Enjoying great popularity in Thailand, China, Taiwan and other Asian countries, Super Junior has expressed their plans to officially start their activities in Japan. Super Junior’s sub-group K.R.Y (Kyuhyun, Ryeowook, Yesung) will be holding a concert in Japan in August this year.
