KPOP'S number one 1 bagelboy leaves op speechless "what a wonderful world"

In the October 10th episode for SBS survival-documentary show “Laws of the Jungle in Solomon Islands”, Lee Kikwang took off his shirt, revealing his well-defined abs to the viewers!

In the episode, Lee Kikwang was exploring the wild with actress Kim Gyuri. When the two finally found a water source, they could not contain their excitement and Kikwang coolly took off his shirt to have a refreshing clean-up.

Lee Kikwang gained a lot of attention with his well-trained abs. Although it is widely known that he works out a lot among BEAST members, there is still a cute difference between his masculine abs and baby face. Nonetheless, Kikwang felt shy as a female was around. It is needless to say as actress Kim Gyuri also could not resist being in awe with Kikwang’s abs.

"Laws of the Jungle in Solomon Islands" is led by Kim Byungman, with the tribe consisting of Jung Doohong, Kwon Ohjoong, Ryu Dam, Park Jungchul, Kim Gyuri, Kim Taewoo, Da Na, Lee Jaewoon, Tao, and Yoon Dohyun.

Koreaboo has reached out to insiders within the industry, who have revealed that the additional Chinese members of EXO-M have no immediate plans to leave the group and form another in China.

Rumors have been spreading across the internet about members Tao and Lay, attempting to also leaving SM Entertainment, however, the rumors cite insiders’ early knowledge of Jessica being removed from Girls’ Generation and Luhan’s lawsuit against SM Entertainment as credibility.

Several months prior to Jessica being removed from SM Entertainment, rumors were flying of the artist having issues. Prominent Girls’ Generation fan and pseudo-insider, @oniontaker, posted on his Tumblr and Twitter in June, 2014 of the strong possibility that a member might be leaving Girls’ Generation.

Team Jinhwan - Treasure

Team Bobby - Let's Get It Started

Honestly the level of cute in Team Jinhwan did tickle my heart though Team Bobby were high energy. Bobby and Jinhwan making the mistake of taking over the performance (AGAIN Bobby?!). The fanmeeting in Beijing was today. The fans took it as a chance to celebrate Hanbin's birthday. I've seen lots of photos and videos so feel free to share in the comments. The airport was a mess though and poor Donghyuk was limping once they escaped.

Cha No Ah Did Not Know and the SOB drops the lawsuit

Cho, the man who claims to be Cha No Ah‘s biological father has cancelled his
lawsuit against Cha Seung Won.

According to news sources, Cho submitted a cancellation for his lawsuit to the
Seoul Central District Court through his lawyer on October 7.

Previously, Cho sued Cha Seung Won and his wife Lee for damaging his pride as
the biological father of Cha No Ah, demanding 100 million Korean won as
compensation. He cited Lee’s essay published in 1999 about her marriage to Cha
Seung Won and raising their child as misleading.

In a call with journalists, he said, "Nothing's happened." Regarding son Noa, he

replied, "My child did not know. Do not worry because we are remaining calm and
handling everything."

When asked about the lawsuit scandal, he said, "I do not know the man.
Everything will be fine. Time moves on just fine, doesn't it? I'm living life
just as I used to. There's nothing to worry about. There's really nothing to
worry about so please don't feel concerned. I have to meet someone right now so
let's talk later."

[Netizens React]1. [+4,588, -37] So his son didn't know. That

biological father needs to go die for doing this to him.

2. [+4,080, -26] I hope Noa wakes up and becomes a filial son for his father now

instead of upsetting him all the time.

3. [+3,100, -24] He sounds like someone who truly knows what love is... Amazing.

4. [+2,369, -19] You can tell that he truly hopes as a father that his son does
not get hurt in all of this... Find strength!

5. [+576, -3] He suffered through all those rumors of him having a child out of
wedlock at such a young age... It all makes me so sad for him that I don't know
what to say.

6. [+503, -5] What that biological father is doing is throwing his son away
twice... He took a family's painful past that they so carefully kept buried and
dug it out for the entire nation to see.

7. [+458, -6] Noa just needs to listen to everything his dad says and he will
lead a successful life. Respect your father.

8. [+400, -8] Cha Noa, stop chasing after the ladies and stop upsetting your

1. [+3,404, -27] Seems he read public sentiment and felt something.. as if
throwing his own kid away wasn't enough, he tried to get money out of it tsk tsk

2. [+2,499, -32] Ha.. hopeless.. It'll be hard for Noa to deal with all of this,

even if the ordeal made the family stronger

3. [+2,451, -18] His biological father was too blinded by money..

4. [+1,941, -32] Poor Noa, poor Cha Seung Won.. I hope they get through this

5. [+1,255, -13] How can he just do this to a family that was doing just fine
and disappear again like nothing happened? He has no right to be anything, not
even a father

Well it's fortunate the man realized he's awful and canceled the
lawsuit...the Cha Family will work it out.
