🐶 Seolhyun's dog humping on Mina's leg during live broadcast goes viral 🐶

Seoulhyun‘s dog could not seem to leave Mina alone during a television show broadcast, making for a hilarious scene in which Mina awkwardly tried to defend herself and escape around the studio.

AOA‘s Mina found herself in an awkward situation on My Little Television on MBC when fellow member Seolhyun’s dog would not stop humping her leg! After a demonstration of the dog’s training, Mina was left to fend for herself as the host of the show continued speaking and the dog continued to follow her.

Jihyun calls pominit a painful memory

Former 4minute‘s member, Jihyun revealed during an interview with HIGH CUT magazine that she feels sad when she reminisces about the group.

HIGH CUT did a photoshoot and interview with Jihyun for their upcoming issue of the magazine. During the photo shoot, she showed off her innocent, charmful personality but the atmosphere took a slight turn during the interview.

Jihyun signed with “Artist Company” after 4Minute disbanded and she still thinks about her past group and the members. During the interview, she mentioned that she went to to the karaoke with friends and she revealed her honest thoughts on 4minute’s disbandment.

“I went to the karaoke with my friends not too long ago and they asked me to sing 4MINUTE‘s songs and it weirdly made me sad when they asked me that. The disbandment is still fresh in my mind so it’s a painful memory to me.” – Jihyun

Even though that topic made Jihyun feel sad and made her remember her former group, she also was eager to discuss her plans for the future as an actress.

Jihyun said she takes acting classes every day because she still lacks the amount of expertise to fully express herself as an actress. She has made her mind up to fully commit to becoming a great actress.

Junsu sold his Hotel which had management issues & paid employees late



Junsu of JYJ finished his Toscana Hotel back in 2014 for ~$18 million, but he recently sold it for ~$21 million, doing a nice bit of real estate business. The problem? The hotel was allegedly being run poorly, employees were being paid late, and the employees now face an uncertain future and are in the dark, according to Dispatch.

Dispatch reports the hotel was run by Junsu’s father, brother, cousin, and aunt, and Junsu used his personal bank account to manage finances. That reportedly led to disarray, with employees being paid late monthly and at random intervals.

2k17 continues being messy, L.Joe's dropping hints about leaving TEENTOP

TEENTOP‘s L.Joe has mass deleted all of his selfies on Instagram, omitted the “TeenTop” handle in his Instagram user ID, and unfollowed all other TEENTOP members, worrying and prompting fans to think he may be involved in conflict with the group.

An online community post has informed netizens of L.Joe’s mysterious Instagram activity. Fans have realized that L.Joe deleted all of his selfies on his Instagram, and has also previously unfollowed all his fellow TEENTOP members.

To add to the suspicion, L.Joe changed his Instagram user ID from @teentoploveu93 to @iam93112, and changed his account’s accessibility from public to private.

before:


Late last year, L.Joe uploaded a post indirectly criticizing their agency, TOP Media, by posting a picture of cartoon dogs barking, with the word “woof” written all over the background. In the Korean language, lies and words of nonsense are often referred to as “dog sounds”. As for the accompanying text, he simply used an emoji of an arrow pointing up with “TOP” written below it.

YG at Hot Topic




OP went to the mall to investigate...walking into a Hot Topic for the first time, and walking out with a bag of tees and a urge to listen to Sunny Dale Real Estate and The Promise Ring.

Collapse )


I think both Big Bang tees are tour shirts (MADE and 0 to 10), I can't remember anymore. But on the tour, the tees were $40. At Hot Topic, all of them (Big Bang, 2NE1, and Epik High) were $26.90 at the store. And all tees in store are buy one, get one free. At the YG shop online, all the tees are $30.97, save for 2NE1 which is $14.52. Some tees and sizes are sold out online, but I found all the sizes in store.

A look back at SM STATION's successful first season

Back in January 2016, when Lee Soo Man announced the SM STATION digital music project at the New Culture Technology press conference, many seemed skeptical at the feasibility of it and whether the company would ever actually complete the schedule they had planned out or follow in the footsteps of others *coughYGcough* and pretend like it never happened. Back then, it promised non-stop releases of various genres or collaborations, every week for an entire year.



However, on February 3rd 2017, exactly 52 weeks later from the first Station, the company has successfully kept its promise, rounding up 52 total songs and 50 music videos. Now, with the announcement that the second season of the project is already underway, it's a good time to look back at everything this project has accomplished.

ZE:A members to leave Star Empire? Kwanghee signs with Bonboo Entertainment


ZE:A is reportedly on the brink of disbanding.

On January 6, ZE:A’s agency Star Empire Entertainment confirmed a rumor that the members are still considering whether or not they will renew their contracts, which officially expired on January 6 as well. They did add, however, that nothing has been confirmed either way as of right now, and that they will continue to support all the members in their respective activities until decisions have been made.

However, according sources close to the group, some members have already begun looking into other entertainment companies.

Additionally, even more line-up changes are anticipated with ZE:A’s Kwanghee and Siwan both scheduled to be entering the military within the next year -joining members Taehun and Minwoo who have already enlisted-, making continued activities all the more difficult.

ZE:A debuted in 2010 with the single album “Nativity,” noted for topping Daum’s artist and album performance charts with the same day. The nine members have shown versatility on both stage and screen, having promoted as actors, solo artists, and ZE:A sub-units, ZE:A Five and ZE:A 4U.

The agency source additionally commented, “We will be helping Kwanghee wrap things up before he enlists in March, and once he returns from the army, we will begin making future plans.
