Song Joong-Ki in a Movie with Puppies - Plot Irrelevant

I almost feel like Song Joong-ki’s new movie Heart Is… 2 (aka Hearty Paws 2 or 마음이2) is totally taking a cheap shot — not only are they throwing the adorable Song at us, we’ve also got one beautiful dog and its ridiculously adorable puppies. Who’s got any brainpower left for thinking after we’ve been assaulted by all that Cute and turned into babbling idiots?

Siwon never dreamed of being a singer/actor

Super Junior member Choi Siwon, who recently starred in TV series “Oh! My Lady,” has confessed that he had never dreamed of becoming a singer or an actor.

“It was not my dream to be a singer,” the singer said during an appearance on KBS2 TV’s celebrity talk show “Win Win,” which aired Tuesday evening. “I just had the dream that I wanted to make my name known quickly and becoming a celebrity was the fastest way to do that, so I went to an entertainment agency.”

When asked by host Kim Seungwoo if he had any fears about becoming an actor without any preparation, Choi answered, “It is very scary but if you don’t take on a challenge because you are scared, what can you achieve in life?”

Choi, 23, debuted in December 2005 as one of the 13 members of idol group Super Junior, which quickly became one of the most successful K-pop acts throughout Asia. He is also a member of sub-group Super Junior-M, which focuses its activities in the Chinese market.

He has also crossed over to acting, appearing in dramas “Eighteen, Twenty-Nine” (KBS2, 2005) and “Spring Waltz” (KBS2, 2006). He also had a supporting role in war epic “A Battle of Wits” (2006) alongside top Hong Kong star Andy Lau.

The pop idol recently won favorable reviews for his portrayal of fictional superstar Sung Minwoo in the SBS TV series “Oh! My Lady,” which co-starred Hallyu star Chaelim.

Criticisms regarding the ‘kissing’ incident between talent Go EunAh and her little brother talent MBLAQ Mir on a broadcast programs continue.

Go EunAh wrote on her minihompy on 1st July, “I am shocked to see the posts posted up by reporters and netizens that I could only write out these few words.”

On Mnet Scandal aired on 30th June, there was a scene featuring Go EunAh kissing her younger brother Mir on the lips. Following the airing, many criticisms from the netizens surfaced like, “Isn’t this incest?”etc.

But Go EunAh had explained, “I’m just expressing my love to my sibling. I am sad that people have misinterpreted the scene. This is an expression which our family is very used to. I guess different families have different way of expressing their love, but this is the way my family express our love. I don’t want to hide my affection to my brother just because of others.”


She also said, “How can people criticise the relationship between siblings as incest. I feel hurt and I hope that my brother and myself will not get hurt anymore. I hope everyone will look at us siblings with an open heart and in a good light. I hope there will not be harm to my brother through incidents like these.”

South Korea coach Huh Jung-Moo stepped down on Friday following a two-and-a-half year stint as boss of the Red Devils.

"I decided not to seek a second term," he told reporters.

"It is not a resignation - my contract finishes at the end of June. I want time to recharge myself and spend some time with my family."

The former PSV Eindhoven midfielder then insisted that there were other options for his role: "There are many good coaches in our football community. They should be given a chance."

During his tenure, Huh led South Korea to a 27-game unbeaten streak and earned the 2009 AFC Coach of the Year award. His team finished second in Group B before bowing out of the World Cup with a 2-1 loss to Uruguay in the last 16.

The Plot to Send Justin Bieber to North Korea

Justin Bieber's fans are having a vote contest to see what countries he should tour. In second place and gaining momentum: North Korea. Obviously, this is the work of web-prank powerhouse 4chan, which also originated the Bieber's recent syphilis rumor.

4chan borderline homoerotic obsession with the tween wunderkind takes a delightfully geopolitical twist this week: Since last night, North Korea has been surging to the top of the Justin Bieber My World Tour Contest, resting currently at second place, behind Israel, where they like him in earnest, it seems. Since North Koreans don't have access to the internet (or Justin Bieber or, um, food) all of North Korea's current 197,473 votes are probably the work of 4chan, where users have been rallying votes with messages like this

What did they eat for their first meal?
Samgyubsal. The two picked grilled pork (similar to a thick bacon) as their first meal of choice in the show ‘We Got Married.’

On the July 3rd broadcast of the show, 2PM’s Nichkhun and f(x)’s Victoria met for the first time in the famous 63 building in Seoul. They then proceeded on to having dinner.

Victoria, “the big mama” in f(x), texted her members that she was married to Nichkhun. Luna and Sulli responded to the text with, “so is Nichkhun our dad now?”

When 2PM members found out Nichkhun’s wife was Victoria, they wished the two the best.

One things for sure, Nichkhun and Victoria will be more Korean than I will ever be.
