M.I.B's third stylist involved in dorm fire dies in critical care



M.I.B's third stylist who was in critical condition after fire broke out in their residences is reported to have passed away today. 

Last April 5th, it was reported that two of M.I.B's stylists died after a fire broke out in their home, leaving another stylist in critical condition. Despite ongoing investigations to the cause and details of the incident, the third stylist who was working with M.I.B for their comeback died in hospital today. Since the incident, the stylist was treated in an intensive care unit and was previously reported to have gained consciousness. 

On April 13th, various officials in the industry expressed their thoughts on the unfortunate event as they were hoping for the stylist's recovery. The incident is still under investigation as the fire department is currently being questioned for details of their response that day. 

The third person who died during the incident is said to be a freelance stylist and has worked with other artists such as singer Lyn before.

M.I.B was originally set to hold their first comeback performance last April 5th but their activities were postponed due to the incident.

Like father, like son

   By Ki   m Young-jin

With North Korea’s failed satellite launch Friday, its new leader Kim Jong-un is apparently following in the footsteps of his father Kim Jong-il, who doggedly tested rockets, missiles and nuclear devices despite heavy international pressure under a long-term strategy to establish the North as a “powerful” state. The launch was widely seen as an attempt to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear payload.Collapse )

Grass is green, sky is blue, Yoo Jae-seok is kids' choice again



For the fifth year in a row, Yoo Jae-seok has been selected as best comedian in the Korea Kids' Choice Awards.

This year, Yoo secured 63 percent of the 8,283 votes that were cast in an online survey by children in the best comedian category.


"I just want to thank the kids," Yoo said after learning that he won the award. "Last year, I wondered what it'd be like to win five years in a row. It's such an honor to realize that dream."

Also at this year's Kids' Choice Awards, singer IU was selected as favorite female singer for the second year in a row. Boy band Beast took the best male singer accolade.

Yoo has always been a popular entertainer among young Koreans.

Previously, in an episode of "Infinite Challenge," which he hosts, Yoo was selected as the best looking male contestant on the show by elementary school students.

Miss A's Su-zy Wins Over Critics with Film Debut

If Su-zy of girl group Miss A wasn't most guy's dream date before starring in her debut film "Architecture 101," which was released on March 22, she most probably is now. The movie drew over 2 million viewers last Saturday in just 17 days of its release to climb among the top five films at the domestic box office so far this year.

The 18-year-old suffered critics' ire when she launched her acting career with the drama "Dream High," and many dismissed her as just another young singer trying to migrate over to television without possessing the requisite talent. However, as she proves in her big screen debut, she has enough charm and dedication to her craft to pull it off.

Su-zy said she rehearsed her lines tirelessly and did not hesitate to seek advice from the director and senior actors to ensure she fully got to grips with her character. Her hard work seems to have paid off as she has now attracted a wider fan base including more male fans.

"I can feel my fan base is becoming more diverse as I get a lot of older male followers on my Twitter account," she said.

She said she wants to become recognized as a talented actress by accumulating more life experience and drawing on this to play a diverse range of roles.

However, the apparently inexhaustible teen star said she has no intention to give up her life as a singer. She even found time to practice her choreographed dance moves or hit the gym after wrapping up the day's shooting for "Architecture 101" at dawn.

Supernova to return with "Stupid Love" on April 18th

Boy group Supernova will be returning to the music scene with the release of a new album next week.

The release, called "Stupid Love", consists of three new songs, including a title track of the same name, "Saturday" and "Stop Girl". For the release the group worked together with both Ryan Jhun and JD Relic, among others. Both of them have worked on many other releases, such as U-Kiss's "Neverland", before. The title track was produced by Brave Brothers. As it was earlier revealed they'd be returning with a mini album, other tracks included in the release will probably be remixes or earlier released tracks though a full tracklist hasn't been revealed yet.

It was also revealed that the group will only be promotion for about three weeks before they'll head on to Japan again for their newest tour. It is rumored that Supernova will be coming back to Korea with a second full length album as soon as June.

Supernova released their 1st album "The Beautiful Stardust" in 2007, before heading to Japan. In the summer of 2010, they made their return with "Time To Shine", their first Korean mini album. Their comeback has been anticipated by many fans.

With leader Yoonhak's enlistment in the army last year, Supernova will be making their return as a five member group. Member Sungje was appointed as the temporary leader.

"Stupid Love" is set for an April 18th release, with an MV teaser on April 17th and their first stage on April 19th.

Which female celebrities look like they are good at mathematics?


Korean website "Seven Edu" ran a poll between March 19th and April 12th, asking its readers which female celebrities look like they were good at mathematics during their student days. 448 responses were received, and the top spot went to Kim Taehee, while the second place went to Han Gain.

According to the website, "The two female celebrities have some common characteristics, as they both are educated, pretty, and popular. Kim Taehee graduated from Seoul University’s fashion program, and reports have surfaced that she always maintained the top spot in her school when she was a student. She is seen as a smart female celebrity by netizens, and therefore netizens feel that her mathematics skills should be good. Han Gain graduated from Kyunghee University with a tourism degree, and thus her mathematics skills shouldn’t be bad."

Kim Taehee’s Japanese drama, "99 Days with a Star," began airing in Korea on the 12th. Meanwhile, Han Gain will be heading to Croatia for the filming of a commercial.

T-ara’s Eunjung robbed of 23,000 Euros in Italy


T-ara‘s Eunjung has been robbed of a staggering, 23,000 Euros (~ $30,078 USD) while in Italy.

During T-ara’s stay in Italy, Eunjung was put in charge of managing the budget for T-ara and Core Content Media‘s new seven-member girl group.

It has been reported that on April 12th at 5PM, Central European Time, the group took a short break during their photo shoot at a cathedral square in Milano.  At this time, Eunjung went to purchase some coffee when she was robbed, losing her handbag to a thief.  Although 23,000 Euros were lost from the unfortunate incident, the members’ passports were kept by a different staff member, which is a huge relief.

Regarding the accident, Eunjung expressed grief and sadly stated,I’m so sorry to T-ara and the other seven members.  I will reimburse the money when I return to South Korea.”  Meanwhile the other members expressed, She did her best as our guide.  She was robbed while she was working hard, so it’s ok.”

Eunjung also expressed her gratitude to her fellow members who comforted her after the accident, stating, “We were able to successfully complete the filming due to the other members who stood by and comforted me.”

However, one staff member revealed what happened behind the scenes. “After the filming was finished, Eunjung went back to the hotel and cried all night,” he stated.

In related news, videos of T-ara and Core Content Media’s new girl group’s Europe trip have been frequently updated on Loen‘s official Youtube channel.

CCM is so fucking stupid. There is just so much WTF about this incident. Who ever thought it was a smart idea to let Eunjung walk around in a foreign country with over $30, 000 in her purse...I just can't. And why was she made in charge of the budget, is CCM seriously so cheap that they don't have treasurers or finance managers to be in charge of that stuff?? I don't even care for T-ara, but I feel so bad for them being part of this company. Anyways, thank god Eunjung didn't get hurt. /endrant
