Lee Joon responds to Hyuna’s “love” for him



Quite a while ago, 4minute’s Hyuna picked MBLAQ’s Lee Joon as her ideal type. She was seen giggling after admitting it, which might mean that she is serious, but it could always be because she is shy.

On the most recent recording of KBS2TV’s Star Golden Bell 1st Grade 1st Class, Lee Joon finally talked about this matter, as it has almost been a month since it was revealed by Hyuna herself on Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time radio show.

One of the MC’s, Shin Jung Hwan, asked him, “How do you feel about Hyuna picking you as her ideal type?” Lee Joon responded by saying, “It’s an honor. Though I really don’t know why she picked me out of all people.”

He was then asked about how he thinks about Hyuna, which he stated, “I think out of all girl groups, Hyuna is the best dancer.”

Do you think these two would make a good couple?

Zhang Liyin and Kangta in Beijing for concert



Starting tomorrow, July 24th, the Beijing Wukesong Indoor Stadium will hold the first comeback concert for popular Pan-Asian artist, Kangta. This afternoon, he arrived in Beijing, beginning a three-day-two-night stay. Hundreds of fans awaited for him at the airport. Concert rehearsal is expected to begin in the afternoon.

According to live reports from the airport, because of local weather in South Korea, the flight Kangta and one of the concert guests, Zhang Li Yin, were on was delayed nearly an hour - arriving only at 11am this morning. Two hundred of Kangta fans waited patiently - holding white balloons and giant posters, waiting patiently and quietly in an orderly manner for their idol to appear. In order to give to such fans who have waited so patiently for his comeback, Kangta specficially asked organziers to arrange for him to use the general public exit. When Kangta and his party finally appeared before fans, the atmosphere (at the airport) was very friendly - some fans could barely hold back the tears.

Kangta will be staying in the Pullman Beijing West Wanda Hotel, where many fans were already waiting. Kangta and his group went to the hotel directly from the airport for a brief stop before heading to the concert venue. According to reports, famous Korean pianist Song Kwang Sik among background dancers were also aboard this flight. Dress rehearsals will happen this afternoon.

4mintue voted #1 girl group on MBC's new show, Flower Bouquet


Charismatic idol group 4Minute has won first place against other girlbands guesting on MBC's new variety show, Flower Bouquet.  The program is about revealing the guests' (here called "flowers") inner talents, with the purpose to give the opportunity to girl group members to showcase skills through various challenges, such as dance battles, where members compete with each other.

4Minute's members showed their charms and started off strong. They have been praised for unique style and their charisma. HyunA, 4Minute's sexy dance machine, gave a powerful hot performance and the audience was eager for more.

A poll was conducted with over a thousand voters to find the Flower Girl group and the nation's "sisters" among idol girl bands. 4Minute was voted #1 by viewers, and they won the title of the Nation's idol sisters.

Originally known as a Chuseok Special show called Sweet Girl, Bouquet looks very promising.

The episode is set to air on July 25 on MBC.

SME's queen is returning sooner than you think.



BoA’s official Korean website recently updated itself to let her fans know that she will drop her sixth album on August 2nd instead of the 5th.

The album carries the title Hurricane Venus and I’m sure the album will work like a hurricane; come fast and leave a devastating impact on the competition. The name Venus was most likely named for the Roman goddess of love and beauty. (lol wtf AKP)

August 25th will mark the 10th year anniversary since her debut, so the album will be dropping right around then to celebrate her 10-year anniversary.

She has a new twitter too!

Boa's got a new twitter account!

I know it was mentioned in a previous post but I figured omona would still need a proper "OMG THEY GOT A TWITTER!" post for everyone to spazz in - it's tradition here after all. ;)

That and because almost no one seemed to notice when I went through the comments. T_T

Lee Young-ae to be a mother



Top star Lee Young-ae (Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, Dae Jang Geum) has announced her pregnancy, which comes one year after she quietly married a Korean-American businessman.

A rep with her management company gave the statement that she is treading carefully at this stage and didn’t confirm how far along she is, although her father reportedly said that she is four months along. The rep also stated that contrary to some reports, she will not stop her studies. (Lee is currently working on her doctorate degree at Hanyang University.)

Lee, now 39, has kept her personal life quite private and married in secret in August 2009, in a ceremony that took place in Hawaii. She has been quietly attending school in the meantime, and the last time she popped up in the public eye was when she attended a basketball game with her husband in April.
