Guess who's planning a comeback!

2AM Seulong revealed that he is in the middle of planning "Dirty Eyed Girls 2."

After 2AM's birthday party at Seoul Melon AX Hall finished on the 29th, Seulong said, "Member Jo Kwon dances Lady Gaga-Beyonce dances well [...] Jo Kwon and I are considering whether we should make a comic work for Dirty Eyed Girls Part 2."

Seulong had appeared on a music video parodying Brown Eyed Girls' "Abracadabra" for Mnet reality program "Wild Bunny" last year with 2PM's Taecyeon, Chansung, Wooyoung, and 2AM's Jo Kwon. They left a strong impression with their ridiculous personalities 180 degrees different from their gentle image on stage.

While laughing, Seulong said, "We're even thinking about filming it with our own expenses and showing it to our fans as a UCC video. If a broadcast company gives us an offer, we will accept no matter what."

The party on this day was for Changmin, Seulong, and Jinwoon, who all have May birthdays.

Has Nichkhun Gone Bald?!

According to the latest photo of the 2PM boys uploaded onto his Twitter, it sure seems like it!

On the 29th of May, the Thai Prince Nichkhun stopped by his Twitter account and posted a photo taken with his fellow beasts, to the joy of his followers. However, unlike the majority of his previous photos, this particular snapshot generated a much more unique response, as in the photo, it appears that Nichkhun’s shaved his head.

After a closer look, it becomes apparent that the baby-faced beast has in fact, left the top of his head intact. “The quality of the photo isn’t good, so if you don’t look properly he [resembles] a bald eagle,” some netizens have helpfully explained, while others have been busy with reactions along the lines of, “I thought he had cut his hair and [so I] was [very] shocked!”

This photo was taken during “a Saturday, [when Nichkhun was eating] lunch with the [2PM] boys [along with] some other kids.” Besides giving off the appearance of a bald Nichkhun, the photo has also gathered much interest for displaying the loyal friendships between the members, a well-known trademark of the 2PM boys.

‘Into the Fire’ T.O.P “I learned stability from married seniors”

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Big Bang’s T.O.P. Even when he appeared in the drama ‘IRIS’ as Vic, not many people accepted his transformation into an actor as being sincere. But now T.O.P is the lead role in the war movie ‘Into the Fire’ (dir. Lee Jae Han) worth 113 million won, and even before its premiere it is known among critics that “this movie is T.O.P’s movie,” “this is T.O.P’s rediscovery,” and expectations are high.

I met T.O.P on May 20th at a cafe in Seoul for an interview to promote ‘Into the Fire.’ With his big screen debut film to release in a few weeks, T.O.P expresses pride rather than nervousness. He worked so hard to the point where he can say that “I put myself aside and committed to the role.” The day after filming a scene in the drama ‘IRIS’ he went to the set of ‘Into the Fire’ in Kyeong Nam Hap Cheon, and “as soon as I heard the synopsis I got sucked in to the character of Oh Jang Beom. Usually if I’m working on one project I don’t think about anything else, but as I was filming ‘IRIS’ I received the scenario for ‘Into the Fire’ and as soon as I got cast I felt as though I was transforming into Oh Jang Beom. At the end of ‘IRIS’ when Vic dies, I think the smoothness of Oh Jang Beom got projected without my even realizing,” says T.O.P. It’s easy to see how much he wanted to be a part of such a project.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

WonderGirls youngest member SoHee is ranked #1 for power in the team?

The WonderGirls were on KBS WinWin aired on 1st June when they revealed a power ranking for the group. And it turned out that as compared to her unnies, youngest member SoHee has most power and is ranked #1.
YeEun said, “My view and YooBin’s often differ and we quarrel alot. I’m someone who is very careful with my words while YooBin’s personality is that she will say whatever is on her mind. And when we quarrel, SoHee will come in and fix things saying, ‘Why are you quarreling over such things?’. With that, YooBin and I will listen well to her.”
YeEun then points to SoHee and said, “Youngest on top”, to the agreement of the other members.
Meanwhile, SoHee explains the misunderstanding of her chic image, “There are people who thought I was angry seeing that I was with no expression.” MC Kim SeungWoo then commented, “When I see you on TV, I thought you were angry too. But doing a broadcast show together like this, I know that you are a cool friend.”

Srsly if you took the time to youtube Sohee she's actually a very nice, funny girl. She's just a little shy y'all.

Park KyungLim, “If SNSD is a cafe in Europe, WonderGirls is like a teahouse in Insadong”

Park KyungLim compares the 2 biggest girlgroups in Korea – WonderGirls and So Nyeo Shi Dae.

On KBS WinWin aired on 1st June, Park KyungLim said, “If So Nyeo Shi Dae is the cafe in Europe, WonderGirls give the feeling of a teahouse in InSaDong.”

She then gave collections of her experience with the WonderGirls, “I saw SunYe at a broadcast filming, and after that I saw again at the restaurant. I should be the one treating but in the difference of 2 seconds, SunYe has bought the meals first. After that, I met her at the radio program again, her expressions were just mother-like. She give off a really approachable feel.”


She added, “I met YooBin and SoHee near JYP’s office once. The weather was really hot so we went to an ice cream shop to get ice cream. I said ‘Choose whatever you want to eat’ and SoHee asked ‘Can I eat the one worth 700KRW?’. YooBin who was next to her said ‘There is the 500KRW one, you are really going to choose the 700KRW one?’,” which had roused laugther during the filming.

Park KyungLim said, “The next time I met them, I treat them like a family. They are friends who are full of affection.”
