SISTAR’s Dasom Reveals the Physical Traits of Her Group Members She Wishes She Had


Dasom of SISTAR recently expressed her jealousy toward her fellow group members, in terms of physical characteristics.

On the October 25 broadcast of KBS’ “Entertainment Weekly,” cameras followed the members of SISTAR to the set of their advertisement shoot, where they also sat down for a brief interview with the entertainment news program.

During the interview, the reporter asked the members, “If you could steal one body part from another member, what would it be?”

In response, Bora was the first to answer, “Dasom’s waist. Her waist is very thin.” On the other hand, Dasom replied, “For me, Soyu unni’s hips, Bora unni’s legs, and Hyorin unni’s chest. If I was born like that [with those parts], I would have already taken over the universe by now. I would’ve been ‘Dasom Who Came from the Stars,’” creating laughter on the set.

6. [+376, -14] Dasom has skin and face going for her ㅋ but she is right ㅋㅋ

7. [+365, -14] She's probably thinking to herself "but I have the prettier face..ㅎㅎ"

8. [+380, -52] I never thought Dasom as pretty but realized it when she was MCing with Goo Hara and they were both on the screen... She's really pretty and has amazing proportions ㅋㅋㅋ Definitely the prettiest in SISTAR

HOTSHOT Releases Official Teaser for "Take A Shot"

[HOTSHOT to debut as "musician-centered group"]
Rookie group Hot Shot will be making their debut in the latter half of 2014, as one of the most anticipated debuts towards the year-end.

The debut of new boyband, Hot Shot, has been scheduled for October 30th. Prior to their debut, members have showed off various individual skills, such as rapping, dancing, and singing. The members also helped compose tracks and have been involved in hip-hop crews in the past.

Hot Shot plans to be a musician-centered group rather than a performance-centered group, and to reflect this, the song was produced by Zoombas, a renowned producing group known for songs such as “Growl” by EXO. (op/n! Along with Don't Go and Black Pearl, also by EXO).

The new song “Take a Shot” includes Oriental melody and riff, heavy, but sophisticated electric guitar sound, dubstep and beating bass, showing a different approach to other idols who rely heavily on electronica or ballad genre.

Hot Shot will debut on October 30th. Be prepared to watch the most anticipated idol of 2014 debut.

[Album Tracklist...]


Debut single includes tracklist: "Take A Shot" and "Take A Shot (Intrumental)". Their title single will be released on October 29th.

B.A.P Cancels South American Concerts

Dear BABYz,

Hello, this is TS Entertainment.

First of all, we highly appreciate your kind support on B.A.P and would like to inform you of B.A.P’s schedule.

B.A.P and TS have striven to fulfill our common goal so far; when viewing with a long-term perspective, we concluded that B.A.P deserves the sufficient time to get recharged in return for their relentless effort and endeavor and this is the time. So, we made the decision to suspend B.A.P's official schedule after Music Bank In Mexico and for them to take a rest for a while, because the artist condition is the top priority for us.

Therefore, we’re very sorry to inform you that we decided to cancel B.A.P Live On Earth 2014 South America Attack to be scheduled on November after talking with Hallyutrend in full faith who has been organized the tour. Even though we’re fully aware that lots of BABYs were waiting for B.A.P’s shows, we inevitably reached this conclusion so that B.A.P can show a better performance with a better condition in the near future; we look forward to your kind understanding.

Again, please accept our sincere apologies on worrying you who really have been caring about B.A.P and we wish your continuous support and love until B.A.P is back.

We promise that B.A.P will come back with the Best, Absolute, and Perfect stage/performance than ever within a short time.

Thank you for your kind attention and see you soon.

B.A.P Facebook

God knows they could use a break. Do you think this will quell the B.A.P rumor mill or is there more to come? This is 2014 after all.

Sung Si-Kyung CLAIMS He Will Release a New Album in December


Sung Si Kyung’s last album called ‘First’ was released on 9th Oct, 2011. After 3 years he will release a new album, ‘Special Winter Album’.

Sung Si Kyung announced “I’m going to release a new album” in his previous concert, but this was delayed because he was really busy with his schedule. His last album was released in 2011.

Sung Si Kyung isn’t present only in the music but also in the entertainment industry which also has been loved by his fans. JTBC's "Non Summit", "Witch Hunt", and OLIVE TV's "What Shall Eat Today?" with Shin Dong Yup have received a good feedback by the audience.

But Sung Si Kyung’s principal business is that of a singer. He is also linking back [collaborating?] with another Korean artist called Shin Seung-Hoon. He showed an explosive love through “Every Moment With You” from SBS You Come From The Star and “To You” from tvN Reply 1994.

In December he won’t release an OST, Sung Si Kyung will comeback in Winter to spread his sensibilities in a new album.

This is starting to be a bit of a YG situation ... hope he really releases the album now, winter would be a good time for him. And considering that he also has his concerts during winter ...

Epik High reveal their thoughts about claims of "YG change"

Hip hop group Epik High (Tablo, Mithra, Tukutz) revealed their thoughts about the claims that they have changed after joining YG Entertainment.

Epik High released their 8th album ‘Shoebox’ on the 21st of October and made their comeback as singers 2 years after releasing their 7th album, ‘99’. The title song, Happen Ending, has been sweeping #1 for a week on several music charts including Melon. Not only that, but the other tracks have also been included in the top ten. This shows that the 2 years of waiting weren’t for nothing.

Tablo was asked in an interview with Newsen on the 27th how it was to return to the fans’ side after two years. “We’re so happy that we’re confused. As we’ve been releasing countless albums in the past 11 years, we’ve occasionally felt the kind of happiness that makes you smile by yourself. This is however the first time feeling happiness that makes us go “what is this?”. It’s a bit overwhelming”, he started.

The part talking about the claims isn't really anything new to what they've said before.
I think it was nice how they chose songs for Shoebox. RIP all the 100+ songs we'll never hear :(

Kahi Reacts to Park Hyung Sik’s Statement That He Didn’t Feel Anything During Their On-Stage Kiss fo


In a previous interview with Park Hyung Sik, the singer-actor mentioned that he didn’t feel anything when he kissed Kahi for the musical “Bonnie & Clyde.”

While it took Kahi a few months to respond to this, the singer-actress was finally able to comment on the statement through an interview on MBC’s “Section TV Entertainment Relay” which aired on October 26. On this episode, the show caught up with the singer-actress together with her co-stars in the musical “All Shook Up” while they were shooting the musical’s poster.

“As expected, it’s the same for me,” said Kahi, eliciting laughter from the interviewer.

During Park Hyung Sik’s interview, he mentioned that during his kissing scene with Kahi, “I wasn’t thinking about kissing or doing whatever (during the scene) and I was busy just thinking about my feelings that I didn’t have time to think of anything else. I just tried my best.”

[“I didn’t feel anything too. Just what should I feel?,”]

Kahi commented on Park Hyung Sik’s statement, “I didn’t feel anything too. Just what should I feel?,” and added, “I don’t feel bad at all,” saying that she totally understood what her co-actor felt during their scene.

Kim Dong Jun, Park Hyung Sik’s band mate, defended his co-ZE:A member and explained what he actually meant.

“Because Kahi noona got to work together with Park Hyung Sik, I asked him about her and he said ‘She’s really attractive’ and that we will ‘Fall for her when we work with her,’” said Kim Dong Jun.

Meanwhile, Kahi will appear in a new musical, “All Shook Up” together with g.o.d’s Son Ho Young, ZE:A’s Dongjun, B1A4′s Sandeul, and actress Kim Ye Won.
