- His favorite thing after the army = sleeping in
- Talking about going on MT with Poseidon's 20 male actors or as he put it "a lot of gorgeous guys"
- Then stopping mid-sentence to say "I think everyone's thinking of weird things." LOL.
- Being an adorable dongseng to actor Um Taewoong
- Freezing up and forgetting the dance steps to "Perfect Man". Oh, the irony.
- WooDong bickering and goofing off in their own little world

Seven months later, Dalmatian no longer "nugu" status

Six-member male group Dalmatian (Inati 30 • Day Day 28 • Dari 27 • Jeesu 21 • Daniel 20 • Youngwon 21) has been gaining popularity as of lately. Last year on September, they made their debut with the digital single ‘Round One’ but didn’t gain the attention they deserved as the skilled group they are. However, after 7 months passed, they are the artists to look out for in reaching the top of the music industry. Dalmatian, who is promoting “The Man Opposed” after releasing their 1st mini album and have ranked within the first half of various music charts. Their member Daniel said, “Now if we walk on the streets, there are people who recognize us. We still have various images we want to show. Please anticipate us even more.”

-The responses to the title song are hot

“When we coincidentally hear our song while walking down a street, we think ‘Ah…we’re being loved.’ Every time that happens, we’re determined to work even harder.” (Inati)

“Not too long ago, the ahjumma (older lady) at a restaurant nearby our dorm knew our song ‘The Man Opposed.’ She even gave us more rice and side dishes. It’s fascinating to think that people know our song.” (Jeesu)

“Lately, there’s a saying we say amongst the members. ‘There is no tomorrow. Today is the greatest moment of my life.’ Since this album could be our last, we promote hard with that motivation.” (Dari)

Siwon And Donghae To Begin Filming Taiwanese Drama FINALLY

SuJu’s Choi Si Won and Donghae to begin filming for their Taiwanese drama

After making an announcement almost two years ago, Taiwanese cable station ‘Gala Television‘ (GTV) has confirmed that filming for their new 13 episodes drama, “Glamorous Challenge“, will commence on March 31st! The Taiwanese drama attracted international ELF attention after it was revealed that Super Junior members Donghae and Choi Si Won were casted for it.

Since it’s been put on the backburner for two years, most of the original cast and director have left the production. But thankfully, Si Won and Donghae are still in it and they will be acting alongside Taiwanese actresses, Ivy Chen Yi Han (陳意涵) and Bianca Bai Xin Hui (白歆惠).

Niu Cheng Ze (鈕承澤) who was to have directed the drama, now becomes the producer while Feng Jia Rui (馮家瑞) will take over the director’s seat.

Despite their top A-list billing, both of them have asked to be treated like everyone else.

Though they’ll be staying in Taiwan for four months, they haven’t asked for any special requests, like staying in hotels and extra security.

“Glamorous Challenge” is a live-action adaptation of a Japanese manga called “Skip Beat“, and it’s about a girl, Kyoko (Ivy) who gets betrayed by her long-time boyfriend. In an attempt to get revenge, she debuts as a celebrity; the storyline unfolds with various romantic adventures and hijinks.

Si Won will be playing top star, Ren while Donghae is cast as popular singer, Sho.

Ji Eun and her STALKER

TS Entertainment labelmates Song Ji Eun and Bang Yong Guk shared a photo they took backstage together.

The SECRET member wrote through her Twitter, “Hello, Palja (smile line) Yong Guk? I gave Yong Guk a nickname.”

The two are currently promoting for Ji Eun’s solo track, “Going Crazy” – a dark duet detailing the terrifying nature of obsession. The photo amused netizens because of their playful images, which is vastly different from the ones they show on stage.

Fans commented, “They look different from when they’re singing,” “They must be so close since they’re the same age,” and “Such cute face expressions!”

After taking a brief break because of a cold, Ji Eun will be returning to the stage through KBS’s “Music Bank” on March 25th.

Seungri's Interview in GQ and W Magazine

Part 1
GQ: Dark circles under your eyes…
VI: I always look tired, but I’m not. I just look like I am.

GQ: You never thought about doing any more solo promotions? ‘어쩌라고.’(What Can I Do?) seems like it’s still really popular.
VI: No, I never thought about extending the promotions. Maybe I’ve matured but I feel that a shorter and more powerful promotion is better.

GQ: Maturity…as in your music?
VI: Hm…it’s the first time for me to produce my own songs and write my own lyrics and looking back at it shows how much work I’ve put in. I can feel that I’m a singer because of the impression it’s left me. Everything I do is more memorable and I understand music more than ever now. It’s not a burden to me.

GQ: Is Justin Timberlake still your idol? You used the phrase “sexy back” in one of VVIP’s verses.
VI: You can write that it’s because I still like Justin. Sexy back means sexiness. Did Strong Baby give off the same sexy feeling as my song now? I write it according to the feeling I get.

G-Dragon's Interview in GQ Magazine

Part 1
GQ: It has already passed 2a.m.
GD: For me, it is daytime. Since I usually sleep until 10p.m. so it is my golden time for working.

GQ: I think his working experience would be different from us since he does not wake up and work with bright sunlight outside the window. Waking up at 10p.m., he possibly does not have the feeling of ‘Oh, what a great sleep I have had’ like us.
GD: I seem to hold a different view from other people. I also want to live my life with regard of the weather changes but since I wake up at night, I cannot feel them most of the time. I would say, these days, once I wake up, I would head back to the studio. No matter whether it is day or night, sunlight cannot penetrate it. Therefore, I kind of feel that I am leading a life which mixed up the right order of day and night.

GQ: It seems that you do not care much about it.
GD: I think it is quite suitable for me.

Collapse )

GQ: Does it mean that you would kiss them and do something like that to show your love?
GD: (laugh) kiss? Yes, I am good at kissing. They said that I am good at kissing.

Why BoA and IU Refused to Become "Ghost Students"

On yesterday’s episode of MBC’s “Golden Fishery – Radio Star,” IU revealed why she decided to give up going to college. IU, currently a senior in high school, stated, “Even if I enroll in college, I don’t think I’ll be able to attend classes on a regular basis. That’s why I decided not to go to college. I want to start college later when I know I’ll be able to focus well on academics.

When listening to IU’s remark, two contrasting types of celebrities pop up in my mind. One type, like BoA, who did not attend college, and the other type of celebrities, who have enrolled in college but technically are ‘ghost students.’

Superstar BoA, who was picked up by SM Entertainment when she was in fifth grade, did not attend college. Despite intense competition from numerous universities to recruit her, BoA decided to give up college and to focus on her career.

BoA shared her thoughts about her decision. She stated in a confident manner, “Educational background is not considered that important in my profession. I believe that one’s sensibility or ability is more crucial than one’s educational background. I wasn’t able to attend high school and took the GED instead, so even if I go to college, I won’t be able to attend many classes and I’ll most likely end up becoming a ghost student, don’t you think? Personally, I believe studying that way is worthless. Later when I have the time, I would like to study more properly.” So BoA’s reasoning is in the same context with that of IU’s.

Free Image Hosting

We previously reported that GoodWill from GoodWill & MGI (an American-Finnish production duo) officially becoming an ELF (Super Junior’s fan club). He promised he would become an ELF if he reached 10,000 followers.

It looks like the ELF’s showed their collaborative strength and dedication because GoodWill reached the monumental 10,000 and became an ELF. It’s been over a month since joining the ranks of ELF and it’s been a bit quiet… That all changed earlier today when he unleashed a special E.L.F Song, check it out below!

Pretty smart marketing strategy!

Brian Joo reveals his recent whereabouts

Singer Brian Joo recently revealed his whereabouts.

The star updated his Twitter on March 25th with a new photo, whose caption read,”Getting ready at the salon. I have to do filming well today”.

In the picture, he’s seen wearing a cute Ironman hat with a matching cute expression on his face. His young appearance makes the fact he’s 31 years old quite unbelievable.

Netizens commented, “I was wondering what you were doing, it makes me happy to see you well”, “Does this oppa eat preservatives too? His appearance is the same as before”, and “It seems like he’s a newly debuted idol”.
