Kangho further tarnishes Co-Ed's reputation



Rookie group Co-Ed has been heating up the internet once more after certain pictures of member Hot Blood Kangho began circulating on portal sites.

In the pictures, Kangho (who was born in 1991) is shown hanging out with a group of friends in what looks to be a private room of a bar.

Netizens criticized his behavior as a minor, leaving comments such as, “He must be rich”, “Tsk tsk, a student in a bar,” “How can a 91′er be sitting in a bar like that? What’re the police doing?”, “Looks like his name isn’t ‘Hot Blood’ for no reason”, and “Doesn’t the company realize that it doesn’t matter whether this was before or after high school graduation, it’s still bad?

To respond to such criticisms, Kangho’s agency (Core Contents Media) clarified the pictures with a statement through Star News: ”This picture was taken with Kangho’s friends after he graduated from high school. They’re just pictures of him feeling welcome with his close friends.”

Are bobs making a comeback?

After this week's Music core, watched immediately shared their views, such as "Sunny has become even more beautiful" and "all the fans want more!"

Because of Sunny's new hair, it's been attracting fans attention to other girl group's post bobbed hair. Sunny's charm is at it's height with the cute and youthful look of the bob, and other entertainers have been taking advantage of it recently.

Some of the first to start the trend were Kara's Nichole and Seungyeon. Back when they were preforming Lupin, Sungyeon's style changed dramatically from her long hair to a short bob, and it brought a neat, clean image.

For Nicole, her even short cut has always suited her, but the latest cut gives her an even more sexy image for their latest comeback.

T-ara's Eunjeong has also looks great with short hair. She's been gaining popularity though her acting, and her hair cut gives her a fresh, youthful image, gaining her more popularity.

HOMIN COMEBACK /OFFICIALLY/ OFFICALLY CONFIRMED!



TVXQ is set to comeback in 2011.

SM Entertainment revealed on the 23rd via TVXQ’s homepage, “2011, TVXQ is returning to you all.”

SM released a statement saying,

“After the 3 TVXQ members left, for over a long year, both U-Know Yunho and Choi Kang Changmin have refrained from musical activities.

The two members as well as the company wanted to keep TVXQ alive, thinking about the never changing hearts of our loyal fans who have waited a long time.

As indicated by the ruling, all of TVXQ’s activities need to be done through SM, unfortunately, the three members that left have regretfully not responded to any of our offers for activities as TVXQ. After long and careful consideration, we made this decision.

For U-know Yunho and Choi Kang Changmin, who never left and kept their dreams as TVXQ, we have decided together with the two members to keep TVXQ alive.


No matter what happens, we believed that TVXQ should be continued for the love and trust of the fans who created TVXQ together with us.

We are not ruling out any possibilities in the future. Continuing TVXQ is the best way to repay the fans who love and waited for TVXQ.”

TVXQ is scheduled to make a comeback in January 2011.

American boy's Korean peace park plea falls flat in Tiananmen Square

13-year-old carted away by police after attempt to get Chinese president's attention

A 13-year-old American boy campaigning to turn the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea into a peace park tried to get the Chinese president's attention today, by staging a brief protest near Tiananmen Square before being led away by police.

Jonathan Lee unfurled a sign reading "peace treaty" and "nuclear free DMZ children's peace forest" as he stood outside Tiananmen Gate just north of the square in central Beijing. After being held for a few hours the boy, whose father is Korean-born, and his mother returned to their hotel.

The square remains one of the most tightly controlled public spaces in China.

Less than a minute after Lee began his demonstration, a man presumed to be a plainclothes police officer grabbed the boy's sign and waved away watching journalists, who had been contacted by Lee's family ahead of time. Uniformed police then hurriedly escorted Lee and his mother away without commotion.

Police held the pair and a few hours later the boy and his mother, Melissa Lee, returned to their hotel where they were joined by his father and sister. The family arrived unaccompanied at Beijing airport tonightMonday evening to catch a Korean Airlines flight to Seoul, but declined to comment to the Associated Press.

The Lees' treatment by Chinese authorities was relatively mild compared with the often rough handling and swift, forced deportation given to most foreigners who try to stage protests in China. It was not clear if they were forced to leave the country or had already planned to do so.

The boy, from Ridgeland, Mississippi, is trying to persuade the leaders of North and South Korea, China and the US to work for reunification of the two Koreas.

"Hopefully my picketing will touch them in a way, so they'll really consider peace, you know, between North and South Korea," the boy said on Friday to Joel Clark, a documentary filmmaker who travelled to China with the Lees.

"I guess I'm just trying to do, you know, what God would want, making peace."

His Korean-born father, Kyoung Lee, said in a written statement today that his son has sent letters to Barack Obama and South Korean president Lee Myung-bak but had not been able to give a letter to Chinese president Hu Jintao. That, the father said, made the Tiananmen protest necessary.

I find this terribly endearing for some reason. The kid has guts.

Bugs interview with Hyesung & Eric


A greeting from the Shinhwa members whom we haven’t met in a long time,
“Hello and Goodbye”
-------------------------------------------
Before we knew it, it has already been 12 years since they made their debut, and yet the popularity that this “first generation idol group” proudly possesses is no less than that of 2PM or Super Junior. Literally the legend amongst idols, Shinhwa members Shin Hyesung and Eric have gathered together.

“Hello and Goodbye” is the new song featuring Shin Hyesung’s melancholic vocals and Eric’s smooth rap, coupled with Nam Gyuri’s voice. In conjunction with the release of the new single, Bugs interviewed Shinhwa members Shin Hyesung, who is resuming his activities in Korea after a long break; and Eric, who has been discharged from military service a little earlier than fellow Shinhwa member Kim Dongwan.

Actress Lee accused of infidelity by ex-husband

Actress Lee Eung-kyung, currently married to actor Lee Jin-woo, was accussed of infidelity during her previous marriage after her public criticism of her ex-husband on SBS morning talk show “Bae Gi-wan, Choi Young-ah, Jo Hyung-gi’s Good Morning.”

Lee, who jointly appeared on the show with her current husband on Friday, claimed she suffered financial and emotional distress in her first marriage. She blamed her ex-husband, whose last name is Choi, for “using” her as a means of money making and leaving her debt ridden and vulnerable after their divorce.

In response to Lee’s remarks, Choi posted an enraged entry on the SBS show’s website, saying the divorce was in fact a result of Lee’s affair outside with her current husband Lee Jin-woo. “I even went to a police station to bring an accusation against them for adultery,” Choi wrote. “I decided to drop the idea at the last minute because I didn’t want Lee to be remembered as a ‘cheating mother’ to our child.”

Following Choi’s angry claims, a man who claimed to be Lee Jin-woo’s former manager posted another online entry on the same website, saying he knows the “truth” behind Lee’s divorce of Choi. “Do not act as if you are an innocent victim,” the man, whose last name is Jeong, criticized Lee of her remarks against Choi on the show. He also blamed Lee’s husband Lee Jin-woo for not paying his wages for two years of his work. “I’d lived with him for two years while working for him,” he wrote. “But I was fired after not being paid at all, not even 10 won.”

The SBS show no longer provides the particular episode featuring Lee online, as her remarks increasingly became controversial.
