EXO-K's Chanyeol has several Panns [1] [2] running around Nate right now over a Cyworld post he wrote in 2008 when he auditioning for SM.

His post states:

"Ah ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
I went to SM and met SNSD ㅋㅋㅋ
They were all bare faced so they were ugly
But Taeyeon looked hot.............
She's fu*king pretty
But not as pretty as Hoyeon"


Hoyeon is speculated to be his girlfriend at the time judging by his post history.

201301241848778658_510104894816d

It looks like IU might be making a comeback with a new album this April.

Loen Entertainment producer Jo Young Chul posted another hint about a possible comeback. He tweeted on the 24th, “IU, who hasn’t had many official promotions since her nationwide tour last year, really wants to meet her fans with active promotions this year. She’s preparing for the release of her Korean album, which is of the utmost concern at this point.”

He continued, “[We're] planning a full-length album to fill with IU’s more mature music, and she’s putting her heart and soul into it; the concept has already been changed a few times. Since she just started recording, it’s likely that she’ll see her fans with an awesome new album in April.”

It was also revealed that IU, who made her acting debut on the popular drama series ‘Dream High‘, is planning to make a return as an actress later this year.

In related news, IU is scheduled to release a mini-album in Japan, and she’s also preparing for domestic and overseas concerts in the latter half of this year.

Yonghwa's love for Seo-3PO turns him deaf.



CNBLUE shared their thoughts on Girls’ Generation‘s “I Got A Boy“.

The boys held a press conference for their mini album ‘Re:BLUE‘, and were asked about “I Got A Boy”. Yonghwa said, “It’s my personal opinion, but I really like Girls’ Generation’s song. It’s a song that they can do because they’re Girls’ Generation, and they can experiment with new things because they are Girls’ Generation. Even if you’re someone who makes that type of music that song is hard to create.”

He further explained, “People may be conflicted because it’s a dramatic song, but I thought they could handle it because they are Girls’ Generation.”

Jungshin spoke up and said, “We wondered who could pull off the song if they weren’t Girls’ Generation. We had a lot of thought about it, too. It’s quite a unique song.”

Jonghyun added, “When I first heard the song, I thought, ‘Huh, what is this?’. But when I saw the stage, I thought, ‘These people really are different’.” Yonghwa joked, “It’s like everyone else has black hair, but they have mint hair.”

After two years, the JYJ members have begun work on their new group album and are targeting a summer release.

Rainbow Are Finally Making a Comeback, But Is It Too Late?



Fans were over the moon this week to learn that struggling girl group, Rainbow, will be making a comeback in February. After all, it’s been only been, oh, ONE YEAR AND SEVEN MONTHS since their last K-pop release as a group (which we all know translates to approximately twenty years in K-pop time). News of Rainbow’s return is definitely exciting, but it’s also bittersweet. They’ve been treated poorly by their agency, DSP Media, who seem unable to effectively promote any artist on their roster except KARA. The momentum Rainbow gained almost two years ago during their last real hit, “To Me,” has virtually vanished, leaving the prospect of the group suffering a Bionic-sized flop upon their return relatively high.

Rainbow’s management has always been poor. The group got off to a rocky start when they first debuted in 2009 with the forgettable “Gossip Girl,” then vanished for roughly eight months (that’s nine years in K-pop time) before returning, bigger and better than ever, with the deliciously sassy, “A.” They swiftly followed up with the equally brilliant “Mach,” which for some reason didn’t receive an official music video despite becoming their highest-charting song to date at the time.

Yunho & Changmin interviews

Yunho “We Had No Choice But To Throw A Fast Ball Again”

TVXQ is a group that everyone knows. But could anyone actually say that they really know who they are? Having made their debut in 2004, they have been around for 9 years. They have elicited crazed enthusiasm, been through so much and have stepped foot on a new beginning. And, TVXQ’s new album ‘Catch Me’ is a direction that defines the TVXQ we see today. They introduced us to Choikang Changmin and U-Know Yunho’s TVXQ in their last album ‘Why (Keep Your Head Down)’, and the two people are now forming their identity with ‘Catch Me’. The energetic and grand pictures that they have formed on stage with their music from the very beginning enable us to imagine the future of this 9-year-old group. So we want to ask them, what is it like to start a new beginning and shape a new dream for a team that’s been at the top of the world for the past nine years? To this question, U-Know Yunho said that the past nine years have been like ‘puberty’. A passionate dash towards the future, full of worry and without a sound answer. But the path they have walked upon till now is engraved within him and made him who he is. Like the title of the drama he appeared in, he is an idol who has crashed headlong into the future as though it was a ‘heading to the ground’ and can now talk about his ‘ING’ rather than his past. This is the story of a man in his 20s. U-Know Yunho.

Changmin “I Find Joy In The Thought That Today Is Always Better Than Yesterday”

TVXQ’s ‘maknae’ (youngest member). A small and quiet voice. The face of a person who grew up well. These were the few images we remembered of Max Changmin before the interview. Even during it, he was quiet, well-mannered, and gave us a peek at the humor that befits the youngest of the group. With these characteristics, Max Changmin talked about the TVXQ we know today. A group that has a very distinct divide between passionate fans and the public. A group that is creating its identity from scratch yet again. Max Changmin calmly discussed these points that others may have been hurt to hear about. And in that calmness, he is nurturing his competitiveness. He knows he is lacking in his dancing skills, so he works on it like a madman. He is nurturing his competitiveness to “never regress and nurture my promising skills whenever I start something.” The youngest who had always smiled is now starting to let his voice be heard, and he objectively looks back on his team’s progression and thinks of what will come next. He says he keeps moving forward with the thought that ‘There must be something more to come’, and it sounds more like a spell he places on himself rather than a mere wish. So many things have happened, but there must still be something more to come. For TVXQ. For Max Changmin.
