MBLAQ to confess their secrets in a bathroom for Mnet Wide’s new corner!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MBLAQ will be participating in a unique ‘talk’ concept for Mnet Wide’s newest corner, “Refreshing Interview“!

“Refreshing Interview” is a new feature that asks celebrities to confess their innermost secrets and stories in a bathroom. Why a bathroom, you ask? The base idea is that celebrities will feel more comfortable sharing those secrets and stories in an environment that’s considered private and personal.

PD Lee Sun Hyung commented, “In an effort to get idols to confess in a refreshing, new manner, we tried to look for an environment that refreshes the mind and body, and found it to be none other than the bathroom. It was an idea brought up without much thought, but there isn’t a space more personal than the bathroom. Please look forward to the stories that will be shared from such a unique location.”

Mnet Wide will also be airing a short reality program where MBLAQ will be asked to take tablet PCs to a location where cameras and even their manager won’t be able to find. For 24 hours, the boys will be documenting their activities through their tablet PCs, creating new content for a fun and unique reality show.

The PD continued, “These days, fans have been compiling favorite clips of their artists into one video. We’ve put this concept to use so that not only their fans, but viewers would also be able to enjoy a different kind of fun through this new corner.”

MBLAQ’s bathroom interview will broadcast through Mnet at 5 PM KST on March 10th.

While guesting on KBS’s “Happy Together 3“, singer Moon Hee Jun made a shocking confession about how H.O.T was the test group for Shinhwa.

During the recording, Eun Ji Won asked, “When Shinhwa first debuted, rumors began to circulate that H.O.T was just the test group for Shinhwa. Is that true?”

Moon Hee Jun confirmed that the rumor was true and revealed, “Our manager told us, ‘You guys are the test projects for Shinhwa. If you don’t listen to what we say, we’ll disband you immediately and we’ll be devoting ourselves completely to Shinhwa instead.’”

He continued, “We were all slightly nervous after hearing about Shinhwa through our manager, but once they actually debuted and did well, we had no choice but to become even more nervous.”

He also added that Shinhwa’s hit track, “T.O.P“, was actually H.O.T’s track at first, until the composer insisted on giving it to Shinhwa instead.

Check out the full broadcast at 11:15 PM KST on March 10th.

Yoon Eun-hye "I cried because of my acting issue"



"I have never thought I was good at acting. I know I got here through luck. I know I'm not everything but won't I improve if I try my best?

Yoon Eun-hye was careful yet feisty at an interview in a café in Seoul, with the movie "My Black Mini Dress" coming soon on the 24th.

She seemed as though if there were no problems with it being published, she would talk honestly about everything for hours. This was evidence that she had been heart-aching because of the tag that followed her around saying she was a singer turned actress. She said she was hurt most my bad comments and articles as bad as they are.

"It is suffocating that a single wrong picture on Twitter or my mini homepage can cause such criticism. The pain internet bullying causes doesn't become insensitive just because I've been in this industry for a long time. It gets even worse".

Yoon Eun-hye, who has been in the entertainment biz for 12 years said, "I have never struggled to live". She continued that she was ashamed she didn't go through the long and hard training other idol singers do and she made her singer debut when she was still lacking talent.

Yongseo couple to leave WGM?



Certain representatives from the industry have reported that the ‘YongSeo Couple’ of MBC’s “We Got Married” will be concluding their virtual marriage by the end of this month.

A representative of broadcasting revealed, “The Jung Yonghwa and Seohyun couple are currently in discussions to leave the show. They’ve already been on the show for over a year, and it seems their busy schedules are getting in the way.”

Another revealed, “There hasn’t been anything confirmed yet, but it seems they will be recording their final episode for the show within this month. Producers are currently looking for another couple to take their place.”

Rumors about their departure already began circulating shortly after the couple’s wedding photoshoot episode; the program has a tendency of taking couples off the show once they reach a level where they are able to initiate skinship naturally.

Seohyun and Yonghwa’s respective groups also have a busy schedule ahead of them in the coming months, which makes the rumor even more plausible. SNSD will begin focusing on their Japanese promotions in April with “Mr. Taxi” and “Run Devil Run“, and they also have a scheduled concert tour in four different cities. Meanwhile, Yonghwa will be tackling his leading role for MBC’s new drama “Festival“, and is in the midst of juggling promotions for CNBLUE’s comeback.

Both of their agencies, however, commented, “There’s nothing decided yet.”
