North Korean parents 'eating their own children' after being driven mad by hunger

A starving man in North Korea has been executed after murdering his two children for food, reports from inside the secretive state claim.

A 'hidden famine' in the farming provinces of North and South Hwanghae is believed to have killed up to 10,000 people and there are fears that incidents of cannibalism have risen.

The grim story is just one to emerge as residents battle starvation after a drought hit farms and shortages were compounded by party officials confiscating food.


North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has spent vast sums of money on two rocket launches despite reports of desperate food shortages in the country and concerns that 10,000 people have died in a famine

tbh I expected more English from the three of them. And Alex doesn't look like he wants to be there.  For new fans/those who haven't heard of them they give suggestions on which songs to listen to from them.

Infinite's interview with Billboard

2012 was a spectacular year for K-pop boy band INFINITE. The group embarked on their first tours in Korea and Japan, reached 160,000 members in their official fan club "Inspirit," and by the end of the year, Billboard.com was so impressed by the seven-member group and their latest single, "The Chaser," that it was chosen as the No. 1 K-Pop Song of 2012.

INFINITE's popularity is massively growing in both Korea and Japan, but their megastar status didn't come overnight. The group's 2010 debut effort "Come Back Again" was met with a lukewarm response and they remained relatively unknown until the release of their second EP. With a new concept and rekindled spirit to prove themselves, the group included a highly-technical "scorpion dance" on their dramatic single "BTD" (Before The Dawn) that soon drew more and more eyes to the rookie group.

In October 2011, the group propelled into super-stardom with breakout single, "Be Mine," a modernized '80s Euro-pop track with a catchy and heart-grabbing hook. The group's success has since grown exponentially.

INFINITE soon expanded their popularity to Japan drawing in a total of 74,000 fans to their recent arena tour. They continued their supremacy by releasing more hits to add to their catalog, including "Paradise" and "The Chaser" back in their home country.

Still all the success didn't stop the group from broadening their musical horizons: Leader Sunggyu released his first solo album, "Another Me," in November 2012, and Hoya and Dongwoo's created a sub-unit group, INFINITE-H, and released their "Fly High" mini-album this month. INFINITE-H's first single "Special Girl" is currently at No. 8 at on the K-Pop Hot 100.

With their audience increasing by the day, the boys welcomed 2013 by visiting Billboard Korea's studio for an exclusive interview to kick off Billboard.com's new K-pop column "K-Town."

Watch the video above to get a behind-the-scenes look at the photoshoot and interview plus INFINITE's thoughts on "The Chaser," information on their new album, American artists they'd like to collaborate with, and more!

AoA’s Hyejeong shares her thoughts on her acting debut in ‘Cheongdamdong Alice’

aoa2

AoA‘s Hyejeong recently sat down for an interview following her final filming of the SBS drama ‘Cheongdamdong Alice‘ and shared her thoughts on her acting debut.

Hyejeong, who starred as Han Sae Kyung’s (Moon Geun Young) younger sister Sae Jin shared, “There were a lot of [interesting] aspects, and I liked that I could learn a lot from the experience. It was interesting because I experienced things for the first time like matching one’s eye level. Because there were a lot of scenes in which I appeared with my character’s family, I had more scenes in which I was listening rather than saying my own lines, so I learned a lot of methods about how to react. Geun Young unni taught me in a friendly manner how to position my eyes and the angle of my face. Although I can’t act, I worried that I would hear even worse criticisms. Although there was pressure, I received strength from the support of people around me.”

When asked which role from ‘Cheongdamdong Alice’ she would have liked to take on, Hyejeong chose Shin In Hwa (Kim Yuri). She explained, “At first I thought she’s only a cold, workaholic woman, but as I kept watching, she is a woman who knows how to love. Kim Yuri sunbae’s acting ability was also very good. It was a shame that I didn’t have any opportunities to act with her.”

MBC caught banning Idols who didn't attend the Athletic Championships



Article that talks about how although the 'IAC' is a great opportunity for rookie idols to try to do their best or excel in a certain field to get their names in the headlines, it's becoming a crutch for busier idols who don't have the time to spend nearly two days recording for it.

One idol group said they couldn't attend but MBC was adamant that they come no matter what so the idol group's company lied and said they had another schedule to attend to. MBC eventually found out that there was no "other schedule" and placed them under a ban from their shows as punishment.

This basically scared the other idol groups into being forced to attend, and it's become controversial because idols are already expected to be talented in singing, dancing, acting, variety, and now on top of all of that, sports. Not everyone is obviously going to enjoy or even excel at sports so broadcast companies are being called out on their use of force/power over these idols to get their way.
