Lee Hyori Talks About Her Worries of Whether or Not to Have Children Due to Her Celebrity Status


On the September 9 broadcast of SBS’ variety talk show “Magic Eye,” MC Lee Hyori revealed her personal thoughts on having children and discussed the worries she has about whether or not she should have her own child.

Hyori stated, “I always think cautiously about having a child. Because I’m a celebrity, I worry about my son or daughter having no choice but to receive attention and be called ‘Lee Hyori’s junior.’”

The singer also shared her honest thoughts on raising her own child: “If I were to have a child, I would want to raise him/her in a simple way. But I also worry if that would ultimately be a good learning environment for the child.”

"Show Me the Money 3" rapper Kang Chun-hyok holds Q&A about North Korea and life as a defector

Kang Chun-hyok is rarity; a young defector from North Korea who is forging ahead with a career as a rapper. He arrived in the South at the age of 16 – one of the 25,000 estimated to have made the journey over the past 20 years – and is now studying art at Hongik University whilst pressing ahead with his music.

He has said he has ambitions to be the best rapper out of North Korea – a career that few of his peers would ever even dream of pursuing. Music in the North, like much of the arts, is little more than a patriotic medium celebrating the state.

Kang has agreed to answer your questions about human rights in North Korea, life as defector, and his hopes and aspirations for his career. He’ll be supported by the Citizen’s Alliance for North Korean Human Rights, a campaign group based in Seoul who advocate for improved conditions for North Korean citizens and defectors.

Any questions? Post them in the comments [on the Guardian page linked in the source] before Friday 12 September and we’ll pass the best to Kang to answer and post the results on the site next week.

Please note that due to language and sensitivities around Kang’s personal experiences this will not be a live Q&A.

You have to have a Guardian account to comment, but I think they only ask for an email address and password.

Ladies’ Code’s Sojung Recovering Well, Likely to Stay in Hospital for 6 Months


Ladies’ Code member Sojung is doing well after her surgery but is expected to stay in the hospital for a few more months.

A representative from Polaris Entertainment told Newson on September 10, “Sojung is recovering well from the surgery. When her conditions improves she will leave the hospital, but for the time being she will be treated here. Because she knows that everyone is going through a difficult time, Sojung doesn’t complain about how hard it is. She is not receiving psychological treatment right now, but if its needed it will be given to her.”

Another news source reported that Sojung is expected to be in the hospital for another six months, with another surgery scheduled in two months.

Sojung was injured with facial fractures in a car accident on September 3 that took the lives of fellow members RiSe and EunB.

Here’s wishing Sojung a speedy recovery.
