The normally cheerful and calm maknae showed us her vunerabilty in the latest episode of 2NE1tv. I'm sure by now you all have watched the RAW version of 2NE1 TV ep5 and are wondering why Minzy maknae is crying. Acutally it wasn's about her singing or English as had been speculated,

Minzy seemed to have been overcome with the magnitude of recent events, namely recording with Will I Am and being in LA with such major stars. She also seemed overcome with homesickness and nostalgia during their second trip to LA. Rewatch the video below and checkout the translations, even while becoming emotional, her maturity at such a tender age is inspiring.

Park Shi hoo plays the rebel millionaire in Queen of Reversals

It appears that Park Shi-hoo‘s bad-boy chaebol character in Queen of Reversals is somewhat modeled after scene-stealer Tae-bong (played by Yoon Sang-hyun) of the original Queen of Housewives, even if the stories are completely different. Park’s arrogant Gu Yong-shik is the youngest son in a chaebol family, and, as befits spoiled younger sons, has the rebellious attitude to go with that position.

BoA would have wanted to be in SNSD in another life, instead she'll opt for being taller

BoA’s recent confession about wanting to be reborn as a SNSD member has been drawing attention lately.

During a recording of ‘Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook‘, when asked, “If you could use a time machine to go back in time to when you were 13, would you have still made the same decisions as now?” She answered, “If I could be reborn, I want to become a member of SNSD.

She continued, “Because I had to develop and promote all by myself ever since the beginning, it was hard for me. I want to use my remaining time focusing on growing taller.

Her witty comment aside, she later gave a more sincere response, as she said, “SNSD and f(x) may be able to practice in a nice building now, but back then I had to practice in a basement that leaked every time it rained. Hwanhee oppa and I scooped up the leaking water whenever the H.O.T oppas said they had to practice.

During this recording, BoA also revealed more about her current self as a woman in her 20s.

When she was asked about her leisure activities, she replied, “Ever since I debuted, I’ve never had more than 10 days of rest because I’m always busy, however, whenever I do get free time, I like going out and watching movies, and I like drinking alcohol. If there is ever a movie I want to watch, I always watch it.

Kim's heir linked to plot against eldest son

Aides loyal to North Korea's heir apparent, Kim Jong-un, planned to attack his exiled half-brother in retaliation for his comments last year about the need for reform in the North.

The attack on Kim Jong-nam, 39, was foiled after China warned the North Koreans not to attack him on its soil, a South Korean official has said.

Kim Jong-un's aides tried ''to do something to Kim Jong-nam, who has a loose tongue abroad'', the official said, but the plot had been firmly scotched by China.

Advertisement: Story continues below The plan to move against Kim Jong-nam, who lives in self-imposed exile in China, was allegedly fuelled by rumours he might be used as a Chinese puppet ruler in the event of a regime collapse in North Korea.

In the 1990s, Mr Kim, the eldest son of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il, seemed on track to succeed his father, but he fell from grace in 2001 after he was caught trying to enter Japan on a forged passport to visit Tokyo Disneyland.

Since then, Mr Kim has lived with his wife and two children, moving between Macau and Beijing, living on a reported $800,000 annual allowance.

He has given often frank interviews to the Japanese and South Korean media.

Last weekend, Mr Kim told Beijing television he had no plans to return to North Korea, and he was opposed to hereditary succession and hinted at the need for economic reforms.

Sunny, Hyuna and Kim Taewoo Return to Try and Save What's Become of Yuchiri

As mentioned earlier, 4Minute's HyunA, SNSD's Sunny and Kim Tae Woo, the first members of "Invincible Youth" would make another appearance at the show.

On 13 October, they made special appearances in the show once again, to celebrate "Invicible Youth" 1st Year Anniversary.

Officials expressed that, "When Sunny, HyunA and Tae Woo met up with the other members of Invincible Youth they were really touched and elated." This is because Sunny, HyunA and Tae Woo were part of the first batch of members for "Invincible Youth" and happy memories were forged between them. They also fostered great friendship with the other members.

Although it is meaningful to celebrate the 1st Anniversary of "Invincible Youth" with the ex-members, SNSD's Yuri was unable to make an appearance on that very day due to other schedules.

It is also known that due to promotions in Japan, Sunny, Yuri and HyunA had to pull out from the show. In addition, Kim Tae Woo had also left the show this year due to the preparation of his new album.

Meet the new Hyuna!

Nine Muses‘ new member Mun Hyuna had her first performance with the group yesterday on ‘M! Countdown’.

On October 14th, Nine Muses returned to the music scene with their follow-up track, “Ladies.” Although it was Hyuna’s first performance, her impressive dance abilities stimulated viewer interest. After the broadcast, her name quickly appeared on mulitple portal site search rankings.

Nine Muses’ management, Star Empire, stated,

Like the other model-idols of the Nine Muses – who have an average height of 172cm (5′8″) – Hyuna is tall and has a charming appearance. In 2007, she placed in the SBS ‘Supermodel Asia Pacific Competition‘, debuting shortly afterwards… She is a talented singer who was active as a guest vocalist for House Rulez, and actively trained until she joined Nine Muses… Please anticipate Nine Muses’ new energy with Hyuna’s addition to the team.

Netizens who watched their follow-up performance said, “It seems that they practiced a lot. I like the live, song, concept, all of it.” and “The feeling was like an upgrade of their debut stage. I wish they would be active for a long time and continue to show themselves in a positive light.

Kim Hyun Joong’s kiss scene can’t help Playful Kiss in the ratings battle

Two days ago we reported that Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min would share a romantic moment for MBC’s drama, “Playful Kiss” with a much anticipated kiss scene. Unfortunately, this didn’t help in the drama ratings battle for October 13th as Playful Kiss achieved a ratings of 6.0%. SBS’s Daemul starring Kwon Sang Woo, Lee Soo Kyung, Go Hyun Jung, and Lee Soo Kyung was the victor with ratings of 26.4%. KBS2’s Fugitive: Plan B starring Rain came in at second place with a rating of 15.1%.

Playful Kiss was a bit unlucky, going against the mega popular drama Kim Tak Gu / Baker King and then going against both Fugitive: Plan B and Daemul. Hopefully things will pick up next week as the final episode of Playful Kiss is scheduled to air on October 21st. Kim Hyun Joong is scheduled to hold a special event with fans, where he will watch the final episode of the drama along with his fans. The price to attend the event is 10,000 won (around $9) and all of the proceeds will be donated to a charitable organization.

After receiving a rather difficult mission on an episode of MBC’s “f(x) Koala,” the members began to panic and started looking around USC in order to ask a student for help.

While Victoria was charming the students with her outgoing personality, a 20-year-old male student appeared and offered to help. All of a sudden, he ditched her without any reason or explanation, embarrassing Victoria in front of the other members.

Sulli also showed desperation in order to succeed on their mission by screaming “Help me!” in the middle of campus with teary eyes.
