Has HyunA's hair turned to straw?



4minute's HyunA's history of hair dying has become a hot topic.

Concern throughout the Internet is growing over the texture and health of HyunA's hair, which has been dyed so many times.

The concern stems from photos of HyunA's hair, which shows visible damage due to incessant dying. Talk of her hair being damaged grew considerably when she dyed her hair bright blonde.

Netizens have left comments like, "Please allow your hair to rest," "Your blonde hair makes you look as white as a white person," and "It's time for you to take control of your hair's health."

Taiwanese singer claims sex trade in Korea’s show biz circle



Estrella Lin, a former member of girl group 3EP Beauties from Taiwan, has claimed that she was being asked to ‘sexually’ entertain investors in exchange of her first debut album in Korea, according to news reports.

Lin also said that the majority of South Korean actors, actresses and singers are forced to trade their bodies
to gain opportunities to enter show business in Korea and that is an unspoken rule in the country’s entertainment industry.

Estrella left for Korea three years ago to develop her singing career but returned to Taiwan in December last year, saying she couldn’t bear with being frequently asked to sleep with Korean investors any more.

The 30-year-old singer published a new book that details her experiences in Korea.

Lin detailed the tough times she had in Korea. She practiced dancing five hours a day and had to have painkilling shots every two weeks to relieve the pain in her worn knees.

She was also asked to change her birth year from 1980 to 1985, Lin said.

Fake Ga-In Appears On Star King

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Earlier today on Star King, a fake Ga-in was a featured performer as the real Ga-in was in attendance as a special celebrity guest. This fake Ga-in came in with some attitude and wowed everyone in the audience, including Ga-in.

Ga-in was quick to compliment fake Ga-in saying that when fake Ga-in performs Abracadabra, she performs it even better than herself. She even said the fake Ga-in had the same trademark eyes as her, although she was quick to retort that her nose and mouth was better in a joking matter.

MC Kang Ho Dong then gave a challenge to the celebrity guests, presenting a chart with 6 photos and asking to pick the real Ga-in from the photo lineup. The celebrity guests then started comparing each other to other celebrities that look similar to themselves.

SHINee's Onew finally confesses his ideal type

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Shinee’s Onew has pointed out After School’s Jungah as his ideal type.

During KBS Cool FM 89.1 ‘Lee Sooyoung’s Music show-ripple show idol’ broadcasted on August 21st, Onew revealed his honest thoughts on his ideal type.

Usually without saying anything specific about his ideal type, but with a consistent ambiguous answer of ‘SNSD’s Yoona from the makeup CF’, ‘Voice and girls with pretty hands’. However, Onew has stirred admiration today after choosing After School’s Jungah.

Followed by DJ Lee Sooyoung’s continuing questions, Onew said “Without knowing her exact age, I only know that she is a nuna.”

But DJ Lee Sooyoung who usually originally liked Onew, acted upset by the fact that she was not Onew’s ideal type which shocked him. At this, Onew said Lee Sooyoung’s voice was his ideal type with a distinctive killer smile and fixed up the awkward situation.

Western Schools Sprout in S. Korea

By Choe Sang-hun

SEOGWIPO, South Korea — Here on Jeju Island, famous for its tangerine groves, pearly beaches and honeymoon resorts, South Korea is conducting a bold educational experiment, one intended to bolster opportunity at home and attract investment from abroad.

By 2015, if all goes according to plan, 12 prestigious Western schools will have opened branch campuses in a government-financed, 940-acre Jeju Global Education City, a self-contained community within Seogwipo, where everyone — students, teachers, administrators, doctors, store clerks — will speak only English. The first school, North London Collegiate, broke ground for its campus this month.
