Rainbow’s Kim Ji Sook clarified that a picture thought to be of SNSD’s Taeyeon was actually of herself.

On a recent episode of Mnet’s “Beatles Code,” Kim Ji Sook showed off her similarity to Taeyeon. The singer had previously earned attention at the time of her debut for the close resemblance to SNSD’s leader.

Tackling this topic, the producers of “Beatles Code” attempted to compare the two singers in order to see just how much they actually resembled one another. However, they brought in a picture that they believed was Taeyeon when it was actually Kim Ji Sook. All of the Rainbow members confirmed, “That’s Kim Ji Sook.”

The episode can be seen on December 9th.

T-ARA’s YAYAYA lyrics are a mystery mystery.. or not.



If you’ve listened to T-ara’s “YaYaYa” track, it might have sounded a bit nonsensical. Composer E-TRIBE took a moment to explain the meaning behind his lyrics for T-ara’s comeback track.

E-TRIBE revealed, “I used the hook technique to turn the song into a sort of riddle. I wanted the unique expressions to arouse the curiosity of listeners. The ‘let me see ya lalala, love me hey yayaya’ part just means ‘please look at me, as I love you.’ The ‘u-hee, u-hee’ part is a mimetic word and my way of expressing the way a girl smiles while looking at her crush. The ‘go it go it go it go’ part means ‘I’ll fold my heart up and send it to you.’”
He continued, “I wanted to express the unique music through lyrics that sounded like a spell. Please don’t misunderstand it and just enjoy the exciting music. I meant to explain the song before its reveal, but instead decided to find a way to converse with the public as a composer and thought this would be the opportunity. Please be understanding.”

T-ara will be holding their comeback on December 3rd at KBS 2TV’s “Music Bank.”
