Sunggyu's interview with Billboard Korea

Sunggyu, the leader of ‘Trend-dols’ Infinite starts his intensive work at dawn. Even on the day of the interview, he had to change is schedule several times. In the end, the interview was set at 3PM and could start only after sundown. Sunggyu looked obviously exhausted but he kept on saying “I’m ok” while smiling. He joked saying that when they first debuted “It was our wish to be tired because we have a lot of schedules” remembering for a moment about Infinite’s old image.

This year, Sunggyu had great results personally. He got to debut not as Infinite’s leader but as a solo singer. Through the title track ‘60 Seconds’ with modern rock beats, he could show his rocker spirit as much as he wanted. Sunggyu said “It feels like I’m showing myself only now”. Aside from ‘60 Seconds’ in this album, there are a lot of various songs. Including ‘41 Days’, the song he personally wrote, there’s the acoustic version of ‘Only Tears’ that garnered interest during Infinite’s concert, ‘Shine’ that is a gift from Nell’s Kim Jongwan, etc, by showing music with various colors, he tried to transform. As if he was leaving on a trip to find his other self, the name of the album is also ‘Another Me’.

When asked about the solo singer’s title song, Sunggyu commented “It was a work where I could enjoy my freedom”. “I felt more freedom than when I’m working as Infinite. When I was promoting in Infinite, I also tried to show a new image but this challenge was different than before. Should I say it was freedom through rock? It was a refreshing challenge.”

This was a really interesting read imo. And I do wish 'Before The Dawn' had been their breakout track as well.

Who Whore It Better?: Black Mini Edition

Son Dam Bi and Miss A’s Suzy wore the same dress and Netizens are judging to see who wore it better.

Son Dam Bi recently appeared on the KBS 2TV “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” with a tight black mini-dress and performed her hit songs including “Crazy,” “On a Saturday Night,” and “Dripping Tears.” Wearing a black smokey make-up, Son Dam Bi showed off her charisma on stage and proved that her image as a dancing queen fits her well.

On the other hand, Suzy stepped on the red carpet of the SBS “Music Awards” with the same black mini-dress. With curled hair and light make-up, Suzy shyly smiled to the camera and showed off both a sexy yet cute allure to her fans.

I'm voting Suzy on this one. Dam Bi looks good, but I like Suzy's shoes better, and the dress fits her like a glove. I actually like this dress. The glitter + buttons are almost too much, and the top/shoulder area is shaped a little weird, but it's not SO bad to make me dislike it.

9 killed, more than 2 dozen hurt when charter tour bus veers off icy highway in eastern Oregon

PENDLETON, Ore. - A tour bus careened through a guardrail along an icy Oregon highway and 100 feet down a steep embankment Sunday, killing nine people and injuring more than 20 others, authorities said.

The bus came to rest at the bottom of a snowy slope and landed upright, with little or no debris visible around the crash site.

Let’s Face It: 2012 Was Not Kpop’s Best Year

OK. 2013 is staring us in the face and if I look back at the long stretch of 2012 behind me, I see fields of rookie artists and a lot of lackluster comebacks. In general people will look back at 2012 as the “year of Gangnam Style” and at the MAMAs 2012 it was proclaimed over and over again that 2012 was “the year of Kpop.”

But does one song’s mainstream success define the success of the whole genre?

The way I see it, 2012 punched out a few outstanding songs… and a lot of tracks pulled out of the folder labeled “Back Up Title Tracks (Use on Short Notice)”.
