SISTAR's Bora has been confirmed to join Park Seo Joon as the new female MC of 'Music Bank'!

The two appeared at the press conference together, confirming the new MC line up. Although Park Seo Joon had been announced earlier on, Bora was a surprise up until her appearance. Park Seo Joon revealed that he himself also didn't know Bora would be his partner until 30 minutes before the event.

He shared, "I watched 'Music Bank' a lot during my time in the army. I was jealous of the MCs so it feels new and exciting to be an MC. I will distinguish myself as an MC by showing a mature and refreshing image."

Bora added, "It feels new to stand on stage as a MC. I will work hard from now on... Although I am not close with Park Seo Joon yet, since we are acquaintances, I think we'll be able to do well together."

Bora and Park Seo Joon will replace 2AM's Jinwoon and Park Sae Young as the new MCs. Jo Kwon is said to be filling in as a special MC this week and fans will be able to catch the new duo starting next week!

SPICA share their exercise routines and makeup advice in their sweet pictorial for 'Campus 10'

The SPICA members showed off their beauty and shared their best tips with fans for their pretty pictorial with 'Campus 10'!

SPICA looked lovely in the colors of fall and amped up their makeup to highlight their beauty even more.

During the interview with the magazine, SPICA gave some pointers on how they keep in shape. "Rather than the running machine, we run 6 km (~3 miles) around the Han River and Seokchon Lake," the girls said. Jiwon also revealed her makeup tips as she said, "To attract the opposite sex, it is better to wear a reddish lip tint product rather than a glossy one. Rather than going for a bold, intense color, it's important to stick to the colors that look more pure and innocent."

Look at their lovely pictorial below!
