why did Park bom cry on roommate?





Park Bom from K-pop girl group 2NE1 shed tears when talking about being lonely in the June 1 episode of SBS-TV reality show “Roommate.”

In the fifth episode, the women on the show -- After School member Nana, actress Hong Su-hyun, model Lee So-ra, entertainer Song Ga-yeon and Park -- gathered in a room to have a deep conversation.

Asked whether Park had any stars close to her, the vocalist said, “2NE1 members have no close celebrities. Nobody approached us. I don’t know what to do."

U-Kiss' Choreography banned from broadcast!

U-Kiss’ choreography for new song Quit Playing was disqualified from broadcast.

Preparing for its promotional activities after releasing the mini albumMono Scandal on June 2, U-Kiss decided to make adjustments to the choreography upon receiving requests from broadcasting stations.

The agency rep stated, “We’ve been requested to adjust the choreography as the broadcasting station decided that it is unfit for broadcasting standards so we’re currently changing parts of it now.”

Having received a 19 plus rating for its music video, U-Kiss is the first boy group to ever receive a ban on choreography by regular channels.

Infinite’s Woohyun Involved in Car Accident, No Serious Injuries



Male group Infinite‘s Woohyun has been involved in a traffic accident due to the rainy weather and slippery roads.

A representative of Woollim Entertainment commented on June 3, “While on his way to shoot KBS2′s drama ‘High School: Love On,’ he got into a car accident after his car slipped on the rainy highway heading to Incheon International Airport.”

Fortunately, he did not suffer any serious injuries that require treatment. The source continued, “Right after the accident, Woohyun went to a hospital for a check-up. No injuries were found, so he is currently resting at the dorm.”

As Woohyun recently hurt his shoulder while shooting for MBC’s “Idol Futsal World Cup,” fans have been concerned over his condition. His agency commented, “Infinite’s activities and drama shoots will go on as planned. If a problem arises, he will undergo all treatment needed.”

Infinite is currently actively promoting their second full-length album “Season 2.”

Tae's interview for Dazed and Confused

BIGBANG's Taeyang on nosebleeds, tattoos and true art

1

Taeyang is 26 years old, and already a K-pop veteran. Born in 1988 and training since the age of 12 with YG – one of the Korean music industry’s big three record companies – he burst onto the scene in 2006 as part of the mega boyband BIGBANG. With bandmates G-Dragon, T.O.P., Seungri and Daesung, he became one of the biggest stars Korea had ever seen. Paradoxically, for one of the biggest global K-pop brands – they have that easy “name three K-pop artists” association that connect most Westerners with the radical, hi-tech and hysterically exciting world – BIGBANG have done the most to re-imagine what a K-pop artist is, transforming the role into a musical innovator, producer and songwriter.

Is 2ne1's CL the Rihanna of K-pop style?

Korea's most subversive and fashion-forward singer rocks menswear from Hood By Air, Astrid Andersen and Jeremy Scott

1

2NE1’s CL is K-pop's biggest fashionista, who loves to change her hair colour as much as her clothes and share her style with her 1.4 million Instagram followers. She’s a muse to Jeremy Scott – at whose shows she shares front row with A$AP Rocky – is partial to a Chanel shade and wears Versace bling and Louboutins in music videos. But what sets her apart as more than just a pretty girl in a gown, is her penchant for wearing young, emerging menswear designers, notably British talent Nasir Mazhar, Astrid Andersen and Sam MC. Pretty much her entire girl group has been photographed in head-to-toe Raf Simons menswear, but it’s CL who does it like a dude on the regular, in giant tracksuits, chains and baseball caps.

as always remember to click cc for subs! they are such cuties, the more i see them together, the more i believe that it was the right thing to make a duo, as jimin doesn't seem like she would be able to be a solo artist, she would be very lonely. and i loved to see them working in the album artwork, everything was so cute and pretty. on the jypnation concert i need the girls to do something with ahyeon, jimin doing something with jackson, and yerin something with suzy, yugyeom and jr.

The Gorgeous and fresh Queen Kim Uee for Ceci magazine!



Singer turned actress Uee (of girl group After School) has released a summer pictorial.

Ceci magazine’s June cover sets the sexy and birdlike Uee against the exotic background of Thailand Krabi’s azure sea. Wearing a white see through top with bold details, Uee stands out against the blue backdrop. She somehow appears at once both innocent and mature as she winks playfully and splashes water towards the camera. Chic, metallic backpacks and handbags round out the shoot. Uee is a true fashionista as she introduces the reader to the concept of “resort fashion.”

4minute on breaking the K-pop mould

Girl power rules for the five-piece girl group – they talk loopy videos, dieting and plans for the future

1074632

To celebrate the launch of our new Korean sister site which went live this weekend, today we're investigating the cultural influence and innovation of the country's most exciting creatives. Explore the world of K-pop with new interviews with B.A.P, Taeyang and 4minute, meet Snowpiercer actress Ko Ah-sung and take a look at North Korea's life online. Check back here for more throughout the day.

It's almost hard to believe that girl group 4Minute debuted way back in 2009 with “Hot Issue”, which, arguably, has to be top ten in the list of formidable first releases in K-pop. Six years later and they're still one of Korea’s most beloved girl groups with 2013's "What's Your Name?" landing them in the bestsellers of the year. The band’s most recognisable member HyunA also happens to feature in the most viewed YouTube video of all time – “Gangnam Style”. PSY returned the favour with an appearance in her saucy solo video “Ice Cream”.

You're All Surrounded discussion post! (spoiler warning)



Watch on Viki/Good Drama

Synopsis:

Eun Dae Gu (Lee Seung Ki), Uh Soo Sun (Go Ah Ra), Park Tae Il (Ahn Jae Hyun) and Ji Gook (Park Jung Min) - otherwise known as the P4 - are the new recruits in the violent crime unit at Gangnam Police Station. These rookies are neither enthusiastic, nor passionate about their new jobs and have joined the crime squad for varying but unbefitting reasons. They are lead by an erratic and hot headed Seo Pan Suk (Cha Seung Won) who wants nothing more than to wash his hand off of the incompetent new recruits. This drama follows the journey of these young cops as they fumble, learn, fall in love and find their way to becoming people the citizens can trust.

Meet the next generation of Korean photographers

The new wave of Korean photography is wild, fresh and daring in all the right ways

1074432

South Korea’s moment has been extended indefinitely. The younger generation is shaking off some of the rigid constraints of previous decades while enjoying the fruits of global economic success. Hallyu, the Korean pop culture wave is looking more like an ocean teeming with pop icons and drama stars like G-Dragon, Girls Generation and rising stars like Neon Bunny. It’s amazing to think that a mere thirty years ago, South Korea was in the grip of a dictator and reeling from a destructive war that bred poverty and devastation. But in the past decade or so, Western culture has brought with it fashion, hip-hop, and the works of Juergen Teller, Terry Richardson and Ryan McGinley. Like most foreign customs, Koreans took it and made their own.

'Mr. Mr' named one of the best songs of 2014 so far by Time Magazine



'Fans of K-pop juggernaut Girls' Generation (a.k.a SNSD) won't be disappointed by their latest dance-friendly single, and the addition of a scratchy electronic bass line and a hint of darkness should even attract listeners who don't dig their usual bubblegum sound.' - Lily Rothman

Time

I expect that people are gonna be shitting on this left and right, but I get it. I like 'Mr. Mr.' alot (lyrics are uber SHIT though) and it's the sort of music they need to be doing at this point...
