Onew is the only SHINee member who didn’t kiss Dara?

Onew of popular Hallyu group SHINee revealed that he is the only member of SHINee who has yet to film a kiss scene with 2NE1‘s Dara.

On Mnet‘s ‘Beatles Code 2′, the SHINee members had a discussion about an advertisement for a beauty product (Etude House‘s new line of lipsticks) with the popular 2NE1 member. Onew explained that during the filming, he was feeling unwell and could not film the planned kiss scene. Fellow SHINee member Key even poked fun at Onew by joking, “Onew didn’t even get to see Sandara Park.”

The advertisement in question was filmed with a concept called “Kiss Note”. In the scene, Dara writes the names of the SHINee members in a ‘kiss note’, and each member magically appears and gives her a kiss.

This episode of the ‘Beatles Code’ also featured the SHINee members creating their own ‘kiss notes’. As they were writing the notes, the boys displayed their shy and bashful nature by sheepishly covering their notes with their left hands.

Don’t forget to catch the episode when it airs on April 5th at 9:00PM KST!

German Teenage Magazine doesn't recognize your Oppas.

Looking into our trash can today had me doing a double-take. Taking it out, I was slighty confused. It's like looking at the word 'RED' but it's written in green, you get what I mean? I'm sorry, I'm getting carried away. I investigated further and realized that it was a poster out of my sisters teenage magazine "Popcorn". I laughed a few minutes and thought I shouldn't withhold such material.

At least they tried, yes? Or not.

Korean Actor Brings Child from Madagascar for Surgery

Actor Ryu Soo-young, who visited Madagascar on March 20 as part of a volunteer group with the Miral charity foundation, returned from his 12-day trip with a special friend: a five-year-old boy who lost his fingers in an accident. Ryu brought the boy, named Michael, to Korea to receive medical treatment.

When Ryu first met Michael, the boy was rummaging through piles of trash in Antananarivo, the capital of Madagascar. He had lost the fingers on his left hand and his entire right hand was shriveled due to first-degree burns sustained in a fire four years ago. Michael lived with his mother and three-year-old sister after his parents divorced three years ago. The family was barely surviving on money earned from selling whatever scraps they could find in the trash dump in front of their house.

S. Korean game addict accused of killing baby

A South Korean woman has been detained for killing her baby who was born while she was playing online games, police said Thursday.

They said the 26-year-old gave birth while at an Internet cafe in Seoul on March 25. She allegedly put the infant in a plastic bag, sealed it and dumped it in a nearby parking lot.

The woman had visited Internet cafes almost daily, police said.

"She was playing games until right before she gave birth in the cafe's bathroom," a police spokesman in the city's Songpa district told AFP.

"She didn't even know her waters had broken."

Police said the woman was being held in a state nursing facility and would face trial for infanticide.

There have been other reports of deaths related to Internet game addiction in South Korea, one of the world's most wired societies.

In 2010 a mother killed her three-year-old son while she was tired from Internet game-playing. Also in 2010, a 15-year-old boy committed suicide after killing his mother for scolding him over excessive playing of computer games.

A 41-year-old man was sentenced to two years in prison in the same year after he and his wife left their baby daughter to die at home of malnutrition while they were in Internet cafes.

Official figures estimate there are two million Internet addicts.

The government has adopted a "Cinderella" law to ban youngsters from playing online games past midnight as concern grows about Internet addiction
