man with the chest of a greek god causes fans to bleed from his hotness

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


A couple days ago, 2AM’s Seulong shared with his fans that he had to eat 20 raw eggs a day. Earlier today, Seulong updated his Twitter with a photo revealing the results of his questionable raw egg diet.

He posted,

“This is the result – - ke ke This is what happens when you eat 60 eggs in Singapore ke“

Fans expressed their satisfaction with comments filled with wows, nosebleeds, and fainting. The photo, apparently taken on the set of a photoshoot, gives fans a warning to brace themselves before the hot pictorial is released!

To be honest, we’re surprised that he’s managed to escape the clutches of salmonella thus far, but we can’t argue that the results are smokin’!

(O.O) Uee-face's drama gets the axe


It was recently announced that the broadcasting of After School’s UEE’s golf drama on MBC, titled “Birdie Buddy“, has been cancelled.

“We made a final decision to not organize a production for “Birdy Buddy”. The drama was meant to succeed the Monday-Tuesday miniseries, “Queen of Reversals”, however, during the negotiation meeting with our subcontracts, they felt it was unsuitable and was rejected as a result,” revealed a representative of MBC.

They continued, “The drama “Friends of Switched Fates” will be aired after “Queen of Reversals” instead. We have plans to extend the number of episodes for “Queen of Reversals”, however, there are no concrete details on whether the plan will go through and how many episodes we will add.”

However, because the production of ‘Friends of Switched Fates‘ began too late to commence broadcasting episodes for January 2011, MBC are considering measures for showing “Birdie Buddy” as a short transmission drama between “Queen of Reversals” and “Friends of Switched Fates“.

North Korea: ‘U.S. invading countries to achieve world domination’

The United States is using the “War on Terror” as an excuse to invade other countries in order to achieve ‘world domination’, North Korea alleged on Monday.

North Korea, through its state-controlled Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), said America’s anti-terror operations are aimed to put major areas rich in natural resources and strategic strongholds under its ‘military domination.’

“It is widely known that the U.S. established its control over Afghanistan and Iraq, strategic strongholds and major areas abundant in resources, through its wars there,” the article in state media said, which is seen as a representation of official government policy.

North Korea also said that the United States is intensifying its ‘undisguised interference’ in the internal affairs of Pakistan and military activities, likely referring to the increased number of U.S. drone attacks against suspected terror targets inside Pakistan.

“Nowadays, the U.S. is leaving no means untried to secure a pretext for launching a military invasion of Iran,” the report said. “Its ulterior motive is to ‘engage’ Pakistan which borders on Iran and lay a military siege to the latter in a bid to pressurize it and achieve a sinister aim. This goes to clearly prove that not only [the Middle East] but the rest of the world can never be in peace as long as the above-said U.S. strategy persists.”

This U.S. strategy, North Korea believes, is to ‘contain its rivals and anti-imperialist independent countries’ and turn the world into a ‘unipolar one under its domination.’ “Can the leopard change its spots?,” state media asked. “The same can be said of the aggressive and predatory nature of the U.S., the boss of imperialism.”

North Korea further said the United States is planning to invade and ‘dominate’ North Korea. “By pursuing its ‘anti-terror’ strategy, the U.S. seeks to invade, dominate and control this country today and do the same against [an]other country tomorrow in a bid to expand the sphere of its domination worldwide,” it concluded.

The so-called “War on Terror” was launched in response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States. On that date, two hijacked airliners crashed into both towers of the World Trade Center in New York. Another airliner crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., while a fourth crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 people were killed.

GLORIOUS AFTER XMAS PRESENT AKA NUDE DOOJOON



[Newsen Lee Sooyeon Reporter]

Gain revealed that she was touched by Yoon Doojoon’s nude filming.

During the short press conference for the daily MBC sitcom ‘All My Love’ at the MBC Dream Center on November 6th, Gain stated, “In the sitcom, Yoon Doojoon shows off his love for my character directly. Recently, he even filmed as a nude model in front of an art class just for me.”

Gain added with laughter, “He will be filming the cut only after covering the major important parts. Doojoon even said to me complaining, ‘Do I really have to do this much for you noona’?”

In addition, she commented, “Honestly, I feel an attraction towards to guys who ends up not showing any interests towards me compared to the guys who actually like me. However, playing this role, I felt a lot of attraction towards Yoon Doojoon.”

To this issue Yoon Doojoon stated laughing, “I play the role of a student on a break in the sitcom. I end up becoming a nude model for an art school as a part time job. My whole body will be nude and the most important parts will be covered with a mosaic effect. I will be filming tomorrow, but I can’t even sleep because I’m so worried.”

'All My Love' portrays the family story with the twin siblings, Hwang Geumji (Gain) and Hwang Okyeop (Jokwon), and their mother Park Misun (Park Misun). Yoon Doojoon plays the role of Hwang Okyeop’s friend in the sitcom.

Meanwhile, the filmed cut with nude Yoon Doojoon will air on December 27th.

1,000 N. Koreans jailed for watching S. Korean films, says defector group



SEOUL: More than 1,000 North Koreans have been jailed for secretly watching South Korean TV shows and films as the communist regime battles an inflow of foreign culture, a Seoul-based defector group said Monday.

North Korea Intellectuals Solidarity said some 1,200 people are in jail in the northwestern city of Kaechon for the offence. It cited a source in the prison, which has a total 3,000 inmates.

Access to foreign pop culture is strictly banned for ordinary people in the isolated nation, with violators facing hefty fines or jail terms.

But a growing stream of pirated DVDs and music CDs smuggled from China, the North's neighbour and major trade partner, has made the capitalist South's pop culture increasingly popular, the group said on its website.

Yoon Eun-hye has chosen her next project, and it’ll be the upcoming film My Black Minidress, which was previously teased last month.
Now Yoon is confirmed, as are the three star(let)s who have been cast alongside her in this reportedly humorous and witty project about the lives of 20-something women: Park Han-byul, who played a shallow but ultimately harmless rival in Oh My Lady; Cha Ye-ryun, who was last seen being anemic as usual (sorry to say, but she just sucks the energy out of a room) in Dr. Champ; and Yoo Inna, who’s currently doing a solid job being the hilarious sidekick to Ha Ji-won in Secret Garden.

Doojoon is a home wrecker and Adam Couple continues to be real

"SUMMARY OF A NEW ARTICLE ABOUT “WE GOT MARRIED” AND “ALL MY LOVE” : DOOJOON-GAIN KISSING SCENE TOOK 2 HOURS TO FILM"



* Jokwon: “When we act as siblings, we have masks on but on ‘WGM’, we put the masks off and be ourselves in front of the camera. It will be difficult to work if the love feelings from ‘WGM’ get too strong; that’s why I control myself while acting in the sitcom.”

* Jokwon about WGM: “We have to film the whole day and there are lots of cameras – and it’s impossible not to have true and real aspects since there are only two lead characters. There hasn’t been one case in ‘WGM’ where we weren’t our true selves. We really value each other and treat each other nicely and that’s the reason why I think so many different episodes have been produced so far.”

* Gain: “So far, there hasn’t been one moment during filming sessions where we said ‘Let’s try this’, ‘Let’s show this emotion’ or ‘Let’s rehearse something’. Everything, which was shown on the screen, reflected our true selves at the respective moments. To be honest, it makes me fall into my role (as wife) since we’ve been a make-believe couple for over 1 year now.”

* Jokwon managed to film his kiss scene with Yoon Seungah in 30 minutes whereas Gain’s kiss scene with Yoon Doojoon took 2 hours. Yoon Doojoon said awkwardly: “Even if they are a make-believe couple, I feel sorry since she is Jokwon’s wife.”

* They’ll continue with WGM filming sessions starting this week. Jokwon and Gain watched the 1-year anniversary episode (Jejudo-trip) during one of the breaks between the “All My Love” filming sessions.

Bobby Kim confesses he has feelings for Gummy!



Singer Bobby Kim recently confessed for the first time that he’s developed romantic feelings for Gummy.

The two singers attended the press conference for their year-end concert, “The Vocalist“, and Bobby Kim revealed his feelings during that time. ”I never thought of Gummy as a woman before. After singing together, I began seeing her as one,” he said.

Gummy mused, “Bobby Kim oppa once told me that he called to ask if I wanted to have a drink. I apparently didn’t answer, and he stopped calling after that. I guess it’s a feeling that can only be shared between people of the same profession. We are definitely feeling the charms of one another while we sing.”

Relating to Crown J, But With Less Weed

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Here is a music producer from Atlanta thoughts about Crown J, from when he was in the states prior to his arrest in Korea.

"I figure with all the controversy, this is a good time for me to finally reveal my experiences with Korean rapper/entertainer, Crown J.

I remember in the middle of this year, while I was still attending school at Georgia State University, I received a text message from a foreign number saying “Yo, dis Crown, holla at me”. Days later, someone I knew almost nothing about showed up at my house one night wanting to collaborate on some music. It wasn’t until later that I found out he was a well known entertainer from Korea named ‘Crown J’, and realized it could be a good opportunity for me to get exposure overseas.
