Yunho and IU to Possibly Become Ice Skaters!

Singer IU and TVXQ’s Yunho have begun preparations for their appearance in “Kiss & Cry“!

According to industry representatives, IU and Yunho have both confirmed their appearances for unique figure-skating program, which is similar in concept to Mnet’s “Ice Princess“. Both shows cast stars for an intensive figure-skating training program, which is overseen by a professional figure skater.

In preparation for their upcoming film schedule, the two have been training intensively. One representative revealed, “You don’t just wake up one day and become a figure skater, so they’re starting their training early while they still can.”

“Kiss & Cry” producers, however, are sparing their words, and recently stated, “There is nothing confirmed yet.”

The program itself will be led with the help of Olympic gold medalist, Kim Yuna. Other celebrities expected to appear include Kim Byung Man. His representatives commented, “We did receive an appearance request, but because the broadcast date is unconfirmed, we have yet to make a final decision.”

The SHINee news that pedo-noonas around the world have been waiting to hear (plus more key2day)!!

During a recent appearance on Love Pursuer, SHINee's Key made a quick shout-out to his grandma in Daegu. The most prominent line in the message was "Grandma! We are preparing for our next album now.." This message may be referring to their upcoming Japanese debut (which is somewhat skeptical, since that album was supposed to be ready by March, as they didn't foresee an earthquake)... or a surprise comeback in Korea? Anyhow, no *official* news have been released regarding the statement, so keep your eyes peeled and your little hearts fappin'!

Taecyeon sends Eunjung a encouraging message about “We Got Married”

2PM’s Taecyeon sent a message of support to T-ara’s Eunjung, who recently started filming for MBC’s “We Got Married 2“.

On March 31st, Taecyeon tweeted, “Oh ho! Eunjung is doing WGM. I hope you film it well and I wish for [your] success!“.

He also added, “When you have a housewarming party, be sure to make the food first and then call people!“. As most WGM fans know, Taecyeon and the rest of the 2PM members were invited to Nichkhun and Victoria’s housewarming party some time ago, but were disappointed to find that nothing was prepared for them and they even had to make their own food on the spot.

Netizens laughed, “I hope to see Taecyeon on WGM too” and “You’re still thinking about that housewarming party!”.

Eunjung and actor Lee Jang Woo will replace the Yonghwa-Seohyun couple, who are leaving the show on April 2nd.
