Who is the man who captured BoA’s heart?



BoA seems to have caught the Son Hyun Joo craze.

On June 13th, BoA tweeted, “Ah, man. Why are there so many fun dramas these days? Kekeke. It looks like I’ll spend the whole night watching dramas.”

She later posted, “A new man who’s captured my heart has appeared! It’s… Son Hyun Joo sunbae-nim! Wow… [he's] really the best!”

Son Hyun Joo is currently starring in SBS‘ ‘The Chaser‘. He plays the main character Baek Hong Suk, who is a crime detective attempting to find the truth behind his daughter’s death. As BoA has deemed Son Hyun Joo as her latest obsession, it’s likely she’s an avid viewer of ‘The Chaser’ as well.

Fans commented, “Son Hyun Joo ahjusshi, who even got BoA to fall for him, is the best,” “I’ve also caught the Son Hyun Joo craze,” “Son Hyun Joo’s performance in ’The Chaser’ is the best,” and “It seems that even BoA is closely following ‘The Chaser’.”

f(x)'s Krystal to throw opening pitch for Doosan Bears, massive stock sell-off



Following in her sister’s footsteps, f(x)’s Krystal will be throwing the first pitch in the baseball match between the Doosan Bears and Nexen Heroes on June 19th to cheer for the Doosan Bears.

Minutes after the announcement, Doosan shares, which had been trading at ₩125,000 (107 USD) dropped 90% in value as panicked investors coordinated a massive sell-off amid concerns that Krystal’s pitch would be worse or as bad as her sister’s. Despite Doosan’s best efforts, though, it doesn’t seem as if stock prices are going to recover anytime soon. ”It’s a terrible image for any company to have,” said Kim Kyung Jin, a Doosan insider who is not authorized to speak on the matter. ”In Korean tradition, if you have a bad opening pitch, everyone involved on that side will be cursed with bad fortune and seven years of bad sex. This is why investors are so panicked and trying to sell.”

Her agency released a statement to calm investors. “Even in the middle of Krystal’s busy schedule for f(x)’s new album promotion, she is practicing diligently to show off an awesome pitch.”

Currently, Doosan stock is trading at ₩500 (43 cents).

Meanwhile, on Twitter, widespread speculation on how far Krystal’s pitch will go has a led to the creation of a massive betting pool.
