With a strong personality, so far it has been Yunho being the lead in relationships mostly. "This time it would be nice if someone could lead me.

On top of that, the girl he likes will have the fashion of "jeans with a t-shirt and sneakers, having a casual look. But on the reverse too, businesswomen wearing a suit fitting them perfectly is something that I like".

Super Junior’s Heechul and Siwon in Singles

Super Junior’s Heechul and Siwon recently participated in a photoshoot with Singles magazine for their July issue.

The concept of this photo shoot was of the two extremes of a daring suspect and a gentle detective. The photos seemed to have come straight out of a movie, with Heechul (the suspect) and Siwon (the detective) perfectly portraying their characters in the shoot.

In the interview, both were asked about their ideal types.

First, Heechul compared his personality to a threatening sword and suggested that he needs a girl who is like a sheath, to hold him. He continued by saying that he likes a girl who is gentle and elegant, that can lead him. Before he did not care whether a girl was younger or older, however, after seeing all the cute juniors lately, he has been leaning more towards younger girls.

Next, Siwon described his ideal girl as someone who is positive, with pure eyes. As for his future wife, he hopes for a girl who could understand his unstable career and could grow and trim the family like in Queen of Housewives.

Both Heechul and Siwon seem to like girls that can take care of them

TOP's interview with 10Asia

“The rapper with a wolf’s facade and a sheep’s nature” This paradoxical sentence written by a fan, may be the most exact description of Top. He may be a rapper with a sharp look and a tough voice, but he also holds a rather emotional sensibility that enjoys music by Damien Rice and Labelle.

And he may be a member of one of Korea’s most renown idol groups, but during his past teenage years, he spent a long time wandering and fighting battles within himself. Therefore asking him what he wants to achieve as an actor, or asking what kind of projects he is planning as a popular rapper, would be useless to say the least. This is because from his youth until now, he has spent all of his time in front of his desk writing lyrics to express himself, which he will continue to do. He says that he chose because he “saw himself” within his character. How did he contain his 24-year old persona, into the 17-year old Oh Jang-Bum. We spoke with Top about acting, rapping, and the self..

UN warship hearing angers N Korea

Seoul and Pyongyang have cut most cross-border ties after the sinking

North Korea says its military will respond if the UN Security Council rebukes it over an alleged torpedo attack on a Southern warship in March.

In a rare news conference, the North's UN envoy Sin Son-ho demanded that Pyongyang be allowed to send a team to investigate the sinking of the Cheonan.

His comments came a day after North and South gave their versions of events to the UN in separate hearings.

The US said the comments represented more "provocative behaviour".

"We're looking for North Korea to change its unacceptable behaviour, to cease belligerent actions," said White House spokesman Philip Crowley.

"The last thing we want to see is further tension in the Korean peninsula."

Shindong and Gyuri are currently DJs for a radio station together and they’ve become good friends. Ji Suk Jin, the MC of Star Golden Bell, asked them, “How are you guys getting along through the radio program?” in order for them to reveal some of their funny episodes.

Gyuri answered, “At first, it was a bit awkward. In order for us to become closer, we started sharing secrets. Shindong told me information along the lines of who was dating who.”

Shindong made everyone laugh by exposing, “All of that information belongs to Leeteuk!”

Gyuri didn’t stop there. She was asked to share another secret and she revealed, “I once looked through Shindong’s phone when we were still in the awkward stage, and I opened up one strange folder where there were many pictures of people not wearing a lot of clothes…” leaving everyone on the set laughing.

Lets hope the latter one was a just a mild joke. We’ll just have to watch this episode for ourselves when it airs on the 19th!

[Star Diary, Part 1] Into the Gunfire, I have to lose myself.

The last part of ‘Big Bang’s Star Diary’ will be in the form of big brother TOP’s journal. ‘TOP’s Star Diary’ is based on an interview with TOP. There will be parts 1 through 10.

The sound of exploding bombs, the whirlpool of war. I can’t tell if this is a dream or reality.

I was thrown onto the set of the film Into the Gunfire. Even until yesterday I had shaken up the stage as Big Bang’s big brother, and today I am thrown into war as student soldier Oh Jang Bum. My voice is hoarse from reading so many of Jang Bum’s letters and I am exhausted from filming such long war scenes. But the hardest thing is all the different roles inside of me.
