Actress Lee Mi Young (49) and her daughter, T-ara's Boram (24) posed in front of the cameras wearing hanboks. Lee Mi Young is still active being a TV actress while her daughter is part of the woman's pop group, T-ara, most famous for their hits "Bo Peep Bo Peep" and "I Go Crazy Because of You."

In a special interview before Chuseok, Boram and SPN met up with her mother in Gangnam, Seoul. After becoming a part of T-ara, it's been hard for Boram to meet up with her mother as often, and it had been a while this they saw each other. Throughout the interview, the two bonded closely.

Lee Mi Young said on her daughter's success that "everything is good," and it makes her feel very proud when she sees Boram on stage, she said, with a heartwarming smile. Lee Mi Young also has her daughter's song, "I Go Crazy Because of You" as a cell phone ring-tone. "In the next month, when their album comes out, it's going to change again," she said laughing.

YG Entertainment slams all rumors about T.O.P’s ‘Turn It Up’ dissing MC Mong

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After rumors stirring recently about the possibility of T.O.P’s lyrics and music video of his single ‘Turn It Up’ dissing MC Mong’s draft-dodging controversy, YG Entertainment finally came forth to deny all rumors.

YG stated on the 20th,

“T.O.P’s ‘Turn it Up’ mocking MC Mong on purpose is absolutely nonsense. T.O.P’s ‘Turn it Up’ was released before MC Mong’s controversy even came about. Even with just that, isn’t it easy to understand how groundless those rumors are? It feels like people were just forcefully trying to match the two together.”

Did Lee Hyori manage to master the guitar in 15 days?

Lee Hyori’s guitar skills have been garnering interest among fans recently.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On September 20th, Hyori reunited with her old Fin.K.L members for KBS FM’s Ok Juhyun’s Popular Song Plaza, and showed off the guitar skills she acquired in just 15 days.

Ex-Fin.K.L member Ok Juhyun is temporarily replacing the original DJ of the show, Hong Jin Kyung, as she is currently on maternity leave. As a way of commemorating Juhyun’s first radio broadcast, Fin.K.L reunited for the the first time in two years.

Before Hyori started to play the guitar, she said it was dedicated to Ok Juhyun’s radio DJ debut, and added, “Please don’t get your hopes up for this (her guitar skills)“. Hyori played and sang along to Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine”.

The other members complimented her and said, “Hyori put in a lot of effort for this, she came in an hour early just to adjust the tune. She said she spent 15 days practicing, doesn’t that make her a guitar genius?”

Listeners who tuned in to the show commented on her skills, saying, “Exactly how far can Lee Hyori’s charms reach?” and “She said she practiced by herself for 15 days… that requires a lot of effort”.

Hyori said she was influenced to start playing by the people around her, and that she will keep on practicing.

October Issue of Junior Magazine; Colorful Infinite



Infinite who is diverse and is rich in color. The colors that each member carries intensely stands out.

These 7 males have unknowingly passed their 100th day since their debut and like their name, they are verifying their endless possibilities and are becoming a new standard for idols.

Over the viewable pleasure, the best word to fit these 7 males, who verify their star quality and real musical talent, would probably be ‘colorful’.

Before standing on their first stage, Infinite shot a lot of sincere and non-made up charms on the cable channel, M.net’s real documentary program, ‘Infinite, You Are My Oppa’. As they revealed their endless possibilities, they showed off their versatility. Following that, they refused to simple idols, so they released their debut album ‘First Invasion’. Fierce beats and choreography, and with their powerful voices, they try out various music types; Infinite, who has invaded the music industry

The infinite-dols that Junior endlessly has affection for, Infinite, met again after 100 days.

Kim Jae-wook joins Mary Stayed Out All Night...


…which will now be known as The Greatest Trendy Drama Casting EVAR. Okay, maybe just this year. But oh, happy day!

Jang Geun-seok AND Moon Geun-young AND Kim Jae-wook, together in a love triangle?? Where are you, November?

Mary Stayed Out All Night is the manhwa-adapted KBS drama that gets the heroine tangled up in not one but TWO contract marriages. Writing is In Eun-ah (Goong); directing is Hong Seok-gu (Kyung-sook, Kyung-sook’s Father).

Kim’s Jung-in character is a “perfect” guy with the kdrama triple threat of brains, beauty, and money, with whom Mary has been betrothed since childhood. Complications arise when she meets Mu-gyul, Jang Geun-seok’s free-spirited hippie/indie rock singer character. Yes, Kim is technically the second lead, but I’m expecting this to be an epic love triangle — at least I hope so. (The best love triangles are the ones that give me the most trouble deciding who to root for, because I like that angst to be as organic as possible.)

Kim Jae-wook made an impression with his pretty face in 2007′s Coffee Prince as “Waffle Sun-ki,” but has been, in my mind, just another beautiful celeb who had yet to prove any acting talent. That was until he took on the nuanced, volatile, and vulnerable character of the damaged chaebol in this year’s Bad Guy, and knocked that role out of the park. I was thrilled to see him break out and show real charisma and acting talent, which may have not been polished but was all the more compelling for its raw intensity.

I can’t WAIT to see this drama now!

Mary Stayed Out All Night airs in KBS’s Monday-Tuesday slot following Sungkyunkwan Scandal, and premieres November 8.

Rain Storm(ed) Manila… and No One is Evacuating

Perhaps if precipitation was as hot as Rain, no one will complain.

The fans of this Korean international superstar very well know what we mean—and the “Intensity” of Jung Ji-Hoon was very well felt in his first-ever concert in the Philippines last Sept. 11 at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, together with fellow Korean act U-Kiss and our very own Asia’s Romantic Balladeer, Christian Bautista.

Prior to his pretty intense show, Bulletin Entertainment caught up with some of Rain’s fans in the venue to find out how he has stormed their lives… in a good way, of course.

Fan signal number one: Drooling over a drool-worthy physique

For the fans, Rain is a total eye candy. All of them (at least those we interviewed) experienced crush at first sight when they saw him in the Koreanovela hit “Full House,” where he starred with the very beautiful Song Hye Kyo. “Si Rain sexy ‘yun, grabe! (Rain is sexy, so great!)” “Ang ganda ng abs niya! (His abs are beautiful!)” “Ang guwapo niya! Ang cute ng mata niya, ang liit-liit! (He's so handsome! His eyes are cute, so tiny!)” were some of the descriptions of a high school and college group of friends. But another student from University of the East in Manila says she loves Rain’s “character and talent.” Yum-o.
