Kim So Eun Wants a Boyfriend But Can’t Find Time to Date


Entering her mid-20’s, Kim So Eun confessed that she wants a boyfriend.

In an interview with Newsen before the release of her movie The Girl’s Grave, Kim So Eun revealed her easygoing personality that contrasted with her elegant, lady-like image.

After debuting in middle school, Kim So Eun acted out mainly cute or student roles, but the actress said, “Of course I want to show a smart or sexy side of me as an actress. I try to show different concepts when I do photoshoots. But if I changed my image in a project all of a sudden, people might not take it so well. It is my priority to do acting that I can do well and suits me for now.”

NU’EST on Becoming Men, Eating Live Fish and More


After 10 months away from the spotlight, long gone are NU’EST’s boyish days – a point that has become a running theme for the idol group’s comeback, from the album title, Re:BIRTH, to lead single Good Bye Bye.

NU’EST’s first studio album is not only a statement about the members’ transition from boys to men, but the shedding of the old for a new-and-improved NU’EST, and the most visible manifestation of the change is seen in the members’ appearance.

Still bitter as fuck that it's only going to be a digital single after waiting for 5 years, but she looks so gorgeous in that photo!! Another source says Liyin helped write the lyrics, which makes the HAPPIEST because it's so rare to see SM artists write the lyrics to their own title songs!

First trailer for Han Hyo Joo's japanese movie

Miracle: Debikuro-kun no Koi to Maho is a 2014 Japanese movie directed by Isshin Inudo and based on a novel by Kou Nakamura. The story was inspired by the classic Japanese Christmas song “Christmas Eve” by singer-songwriter Tatsuro Yamashita.
Hikaru (Aiba) is a mildly incompetent bookstore employee who’s just a bit too nice for his own good. He’s also an aspiring manga artist, and distributes mysterious “Debikuro Communication” flyers at night.
On Christmas night, a miracle is created by the love Hikaru and three other people in his life – his attentive childhood friend Anna (Eikura), a world-famous lighting designer named So-yeon (Han) whom he meets by coincidence, and a former university classmate named Kitayama (Ikuta) who’s gone on to become a popular manga artist.

Tomboys must be trans apparently smh

This article does a bit too much putting down of other girl groups imo, but it also is a good reminder that the girls didn't choose this tomboy image themselves (Eunji cried when she was forced to get her hair cut), and that even though their image is different they are in the same boat as other female idols. I think a lot of fans forget this because of their appearance

SECRET release date/title??? edit: y'know what this is just a megapost now

Jaejoong Star1 Magazine Interview: The Return of the King

Q. What kind of character is Huh Youngdal in MBC <Triangle>?

Huh Youngdal is the rebel of casino world in Kangwon-do. He’s infamous enough that if someone in town doesn’t know him, that person will be considered as spy. He uses all kinds of tricks to swindle money and there isn’t a day he doesn’t cause trouble. However, though he has to live away from his parents and brothers since his childhood, he still has a positive mind. If I exaggerate a bit, he’s a candy-like character.

Youngdal, who, with the dream of becoming Casino Hold’em champion, causes trouble every night in casino, is somehow adorable. After meeting his brothers, while taking revenge for his father, he starts to nurture ambitions instead of chasing after a pipe dream, in order to protect people around him.
