A blind items post, actors edition


post brought to you by the prettiest couple that never was

1. Top star 'D' who recently made a comeback after a long hiatus confessed that rookie actress 'E' whom he dated on his hiatus "wouldn't leave him alone with the skinship". It's been a year since they've been dating and 'E' never once let go of him, using his knees as a chair and his back as a backrest. Although he said he fell in love with her for her innocent ways, he's a bit tired of her now that he has to basically piggy back her around. They recently broke up.

Epik High’s Mithra Jin announces that he will marry IU?


TanVuSBS (starts at ~2:00)

Mithra Jin recently made a bizarre and cute statement saying that he will marry IU!

On the October 21st broadcast of ‘Inkigayo‘, Epik High made an appearance with MCs IU and Lee Jong Suk before their comeback stage. Making a comeback after three years, Epik High stated, “It’s been a while since the three of us all appeared on screen together. It feels like other celebrities don’t recognize us because it’s been so long, and it’s so cold.

Picking up on how Tablo and DJ Tukutz are already married while Mithra Jin is still single, Lee Jong Suk asked Mithra Jin if he wasn’t envious and he surprisingly responded “I’m so envious I’m thinking about marrying sometime tomorrow.” When he was asked who he was going to marry, Mithra Jin boldly responded that he would marry IU. After hearing what Mithra Jin said, Tablo stepped in quickly, apologizing and explaining that “He isn’t fully trained yet.”

In response to the surprising statement made by Mithra Jin, IU humorously responded that she would take good care of the household.

Male idol group Block B recently talked about the Thailand interview incident and resulting controversy.

On the recent recording of ‘Beatles Code 2‘, Block B stated “The incident that happened eight months ago during the Thailand interview was out of line and it was wrong.

MC Tak Jae Hoon commented, “It was during the peak of your promotion when this incident broke out“. To this, Block B’s leader Zico replied, “This may sound like an excuse but, the night prior to the interview we didn’t get any sleep because we were working on music and our minds were a bit loose. We were out of line and it was wrong.

Artist Hyun Ji Young who was also present during the recording said “The incident that happened eight months ago was wrong, but because of that you guys [Block B] had the time to look back on the incident and grow into more mature and careful members of Block B. In the future [Block B] will gain more popularity and grow, but at the same time be humble as well.

During the program the group also discuss their latest album as well as a few funny group anecdotes.

This recording of “Beatles Code 2″ will air on October 22nd at 11PM KST.
