During a recent appearance on "VIP Entertainment Magazine", JYJ sat down to discuss their ideal woman as well as the type of kiss they prefer. Jaejoong shared that he would like "bathtub kisses" and most particularly, "with my wife after I marry, with bubbles in the tub."

JYJ's full interview will be revealed on February 11th. Are you shocked by Jaejoong's response?

Netizens fascinated with Jiyeon's gorgeous eyeliner

Makeup is an idol girl’s best friend.

T-ara‘s Jiyeon isn’t the first, nor will she be the last, female idol to be analyzed for make-up enhancement. This time, it’s the eyeliner.

Netizens are fascinated by the difference in Jiyeon’s appearance with and without the black magic ink. One of the top searched items is now "Jiyeon's eyeliner" on search portals. Because Jiyeon’s eyes are naturally big, it’s not relatively not an extreme difference, but the feeling is obviously different.

Netizens have discussed and decided. Naturally, with the (heavy) eyeliner, Jiyeon looks gorgeous and chic. Without the makeup, Jiyeon is more true to her age, and appears more innocent and cute but still gorgeous.

Evidence of Kim's Worrying Misjudgments

Kim Jong Il will turn 69 in the middle of next week. As is the case with any iron-fisted dictator, concerns over the judgment of an ageing leader grow larger as time passes, and the fact that Kim apparently suffered a stroke on August 14th, 2008 only makes those fears greater.

As a result, South Korean and international intelligence agencies have been observing Kim’s health closely for some time, particularly since the stroke, and are apparently confident that he has recovered to the extent of being able to carry out his daily tasks. However, it is widely rumored that he has been left lacking in judgment and with a much depleted memory. Indeed, a high official in the South Korean administration publicly asserted precisely that last year, adding that Kim is prone to talking completely illogically.

On this note, a source in China well-acquainted with the North Korean authorities introduced a few stories to The Daily NK.

He explained, “Evidence of Kim Jong Il’s mental situation has been spreading despite the authorities’ complete control over information. This is partly because cadres who have witnessed it talk about his behavior with others, so the secrets continue to spread.”

Dongwan and His Fans "Squabble" Over Sulli

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The interesting “psychological battle” between Shinhwa’s Kim Dongwan and his fans has turned into a hot topic lately.

Footage of Kim Dongwan’s first post-military service fanmeeting in Seoul was unveiled on KBS2′s Entertainment Relay. Kim Dongwan, who was recently discharged from military service in December, chose KARA’s Han Seung Yeon and f(x)’s Sulli as his “energizers” during his service period. When Kim Dongwan justified his choice with the reason that “Sulli has a pretty face”, he was greeted with playful jeers from the fans who said, “She can be your daughter!”

Kim Dongwan got up from his seat and yelled in mock rage, “I don’t mean it that way!” – leading to an adorable squabble with the fans. The unexpected “standoff” between Kim Dongwan and his fans has amused many.

Netizens who saw the footage commented, “You can feel their affection amidst the noisy banter”, and that “Kim Dongwan and his fans are really adorable”.

Former B2Y members Nara & Seoyeon being sued for ‘committing immoral acts’


B2Y’s agency has announced that they will be pressing charges against the group’s former female members, Nara and Seoyeon.

On the morning of February 11th, representatives of 2B Entertainment stated, “The two were kicked out of the group for committing a shameful and scandalous act. We will be pressing charges against Nara and Seoyeon, as well as their former road manager for being involved with it.”

They continued, “Nara especially has done something that is unacceptable as a female singer, and maintained connections with an extremely dark and inappropriate place. Due to her immoral actions, she’s put the company in a very embarrassing situation.”

2B Entertainment concluded, “Although we feel regretful about how they should have worked hard to succeed in the music industry, they opted instead to sell their conscience by committing immoral acts, and so we will be continuing with the lawsuit. Should they be found guilty, we will be aggressively pursuing action to make sure that they receive penalties.”

The SECRET members still don’t have cell phones

Despite being a year and four months into their careers, the SECRET members revealed that they still lack cell phones.

With a laugh, they casually stated, “We still don’t have cell phones. At this point, we’ve all forgotten what cell phones are even used for.”

They revealed that of course they still wanted cell phones, especially now that there’s a variety of smartphones with cool applications. Hyosung revealed, “I honestly do really want one, but there’s nothing uncomfortable about not having one. And since all of us equally don’t have one, there aren’t any big problems.”

The reason behind why they aren’t allowed to have cell phones is said to be because of team solidarity. In SECRET’s case, they were born out of a start-up company and had to reach where they are now through pure passion, effort, and team work.

Sunhwa explained, “Even if we fight on our own, we have no choice but to make up on our own as well. These experiences help us to become stronger, so we understand. We don’t even ask to use cell phones.”

Won Geun Young, director of TS Entertainment, also commented on the issue. “Depending on your viewpoint, the rule can seem forceful from the company’s end, but we’re very thankful for the members’ understanding. We’re also proud of them as well. For their two year anniversary, we’re planning to present them with the latest cell phones from the market.”
