BRAND NEW INFOMATION: Nicole is friends with everyone and their moms, Heechul is getting there...

KARA’s Nicole was chosen as the #1 idol with the most personal connections to other celebrities on the November 25th broadcast of SBS’s “One Night of TV Entertainment.”

The episode ranked idol members according to their range of networks and placed Nicole as first, due to her friendships with SNSD’s Seohyun, Sunny, and Hyoyeon, 2AM’s Jo Kwon and Changmin, SS501′s Heo Young Saeng, Hwang Bo, Shin Hye Sung, and Jo Hye Ryeon. Her expansive network demonstrates that there were no gender or age restrictions in order to be her friend.

Super Junior’s Kim Hee Chul
landed in second place for his friendships with Jung Jun Ha, Kim Jung Eun, Hwang Shin Hye, and even Lee Soo Man.

Kim Hee Chul commented, “I think they had a good impression of me. I’d like to say that all of this is attributed to one’s character.”

or knows someone that does...

Little Jung faints on stage. :(


f(x)'s Krystal fainted during a public performance, and is now recovering.

On the 27th of November at the Lotte Duty-free Store Family Concert stage at Olympic Gymnastics Stadium, Krystal fainted during a song performance, and was guided off the stage by security guards.

In regards to this, f(x)'s agency company revealed on a telephone interview with Newsen that "Krystal's condition wasn't very well today, which led to her suddenly fainting. After the diagnosis at the hospital, it has been shown that there is no anomalies, she only temporarily lost her consciousness."

They also said, "The health of the other members are also fine, Krystal's condition right now is very good." Krystal's sudden collapse greatly startled her fans. After it happened, other stars joined the stage to help the concert recover from the situation.

North Korea says civilian deaths, if true, very regrettable

North Korea said on Saturday that if there were any civilian deaths in its attack on a South Korean island, they were "very regrettable."

North Korea shelled the island of Yeonpyeong on Tuesday, killing two civilians and two Marines and destroying dozens of houses. It said it was responding to live fire by South Korea into its waters.

"If that is true, it is very regrettable," KCNA said of the civilian deaths. "But the enemy should be held responsible for the incident as it took such inhuman action as creating 'a human shield' by deploying civilians around artillery positions and inside military facilities."

WTF is this. And for anyone wondering The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) is the state news agency of North Korea

South Korea mourns killed marines

Dignitaries have placed white chrysanthemums on a funeral altar as South Korea honoured two marines killed in a artillery attack by the North.

The marines' commander vowed unspecified "thousand-fold" retaliation at the funeral, as the country geared up for joint military manoeuvres with the US that are likely to keep tensions soaring following the attack on the South Korean island Yeonpyeong, which also killed two civilians.

Meanwhile North Korea issued new warnings against the Yellow Sea drills, calling them an "unpardonable provocation" and warning of retaliatory attacks that would "turn the stronghold of enemies into a sea of fire" if its own territory was violated.

The comments ran on the state-run Uriminzokkiri website and came a day after the North warned that the peninsula was on the "brink of war".

China, under pressure from the US and South Korea to rein in its ally Pyongyang, urged both sides to show restraint while Washington played down the belligerent rhetoric, noting that the weekend war games were routine and planned well before last week's attack.

"The pressing task now is to put the situation under control and prevent a recurrence of similar incidents," Chinese foreign minister Yang Jiechi told US secretary of state Hillary Clinton by phone, according to the ministry's website.

The strike on Tuesday destroyed large parts of Yeonpyeong in a major escalation of the Koreas' sporadic skirmishes along the disputed sea border. The attack - eight months after a torpedo sank a South Korean warship, killing 46 sailors - has laid bare Seoul's weaknesses in defence 60 years after the war. South Korea's government has struggled to recoup from the surprise attacks and replaced its defence minister.

In Seongnam, near Seoul, about 600 mourners including prime minister Kim Hwang-sik and marine commander Major General You Nak-jun attended the funeral for the two marines at a packed gymnasium in a military hospital as sombre music played.

Dignitaries and family members placed chrysanthemums - a traditional flower of mourning in South Korea - before framed photographs of the two victims, who were posthumously promoted by one rank and awarded a medal.

President Lee Myung-bak has ordered reinforcements for the 4,000 troops on Yeonpyeong and four other Yellow Sea islands, as well as top-level weaponry and upgraded rules of engagement.

South Korea Marines vow revenge for attack

South Korea's Marine commander on Saturday vowed "thousand-fold" revenge for a North Korean attack that killed two servicemen and two civilians and prompted an unusual expression of regret from North Korea.

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak told ministers and aides to be ready for further "provocation" by North Korea during joint military maneuvers with the United States that start on Sunday.

"There is the possibility that North Korea may do some unexpected action, so please perfectly prepare against it through cooperation with the Korea-U.S. joint force," Lee was quoted by a spokesman as saying.

Fans comment on Kangta's ahjussi look

A Chinese portal site,, revealed Kangta's pictures from his new Chinese drama. The pictures are with the female lead of his drama.

Fans noticed that he seemed to have gained weight and he looked like an ahjussi, not at all like the thin pretty boy he was a few months ago. However, no fan had anything bad to say about his new look. Fans commented positively, saying, "he has a new charm now," and "you still look good no matter what."

Seems like those H.O.T fans can never say anything bad about their former lead singer. But then again, he is now 31, which would grant him "ahjussi" status. What do you think? Does he look okay with his new look, or are fans just blinded by their love for him?

imo he looked more like an ahjussi when he was heading to the army, he's looking gorgeous rn.

Also umm, what weight?

Director of Kohaku explains the lack of K-pop artists at this year's Kohaku

In our previous article, we announced that Big Bang, Girls' Generation, and KARA will be absent from this year's Kohaku Uta Gassen, one of the biggest Japanese performance events annually. As previously reported, this also marks the first time in recent years that no Korean artist will appear on the show.

Fans are probably wondering why no Korean artists were invited to the show because this year has been a successful year for Korean artists in Japan ranging from Big Bang's continual rise in popularity to the debut of both KARA and Girls' Generation.Collapse )Source: sankei + koreaboo
