Vogue selects Sehun as The Best Dressed Man at the Louis Vuitton PFW Show + Round Up Post

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

There’s always plenty of competition in the front row at Louis Vuitton, but this season the man with the best look—and the most screaming fans—was Sehun, the star of the Seoul-based musical group EXO. As a member of arguably the world’s biggest boyband, Sehun is used to traveling the world while wearing arresting designer gear, but at Vuitton he switched things up by going understated. Though he’s been known to waltz through airports in menswear looks direct from the runway and change his hair color to rainbow shades, his Vuitton moment was polished. With slick-backed locks, a colorful shirt in a kaleidoscopic print, and a black leather bomber, his vibe was simple, sexy, and perfect for a trip to the Louvre to sit in the front row.

OMONA'S PICK: 15 amazing English Covers by K-Pop Artists

This one was as fun to make as it was difficult.
Over the years k-pop artist have graced us with many beautiful covers of their favorite english song, and when I say many I mean A LOT.
Choices had to be made, maybe your fave cover made the list maybe it didn't, good thing is you can always spam the comment section with what you think are some of the greatest covers.

OP's note: I tried to focus on artist who had already debuted and avoid any reality television competition show like K-pop Star otherwise the list would be too damn long.
That being said, SuPearls rendition of "Fame", Lee Hi's “Rolling in the Deep” and Jimin cover of "Over the rainbow" are pretty great.

jonghyun to leave(?) blue night radio after three years

jonghyun announced (while crying for fifteen straight minutes) during his live broadcast of blue night radio today that he'll be leaving his post as dj on april 2nd. though he said that he'll come back in the future the tone of the entire reveal was kind of final sounding (but, then again, he's emotional so who knows). he stated that the decision is due to his health and "various reason", such as schedules. (for example: shinee are going to be doing fifteen concerts, with two or three every weekend, throughout the course of april.) information is kind of fragmented for now, but it'll likely become clearer in the coming weeks. that's why the (?) is in the topic title, lol. no one knows if it's for good or for a few months, or. he celebrated his third year anniversary as dj at the start of last month.

Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee to face Korean press for the first time together


Film director Hong Sang-soo and Kim Min-hee, best actress at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival, will next week make their first public appearance together in Korea since their extramarital scandal broke last June, according to a PR agency Wednesday.

Hong and Kim will attend the South Korean press screening of "On the Beach at Night Alone" next Monday at the Lotte Cinema in Seoul's northeastern district of Gwangjin, the film's PR agency Movement said. The two will hold a Q&A session with reporters after the screening.

The South Korean auteur and the actress both attended the Berlin Film Festival last month. For her performance in Hong's latest work, Kim took home the Silver Bear for Best Actress.

Hong, 57, and Kim, 34, have been engulfed in an alleged extramarital relationship since last June. Neither of them have officially confirmed the reports but have been publicly spotted displaying mutual affection. Hong filed for a divorce from his wife in November.

"On the Beach at Night Alone" has drawn much media attention for its story possibly being based on the director's intimate relationship with Kim in real life as the main characters' conversations strongly advocate for an extramarital relationship.

7 Things You Should Avoid On A First Date According To Koreans

Koreans were polled to find out what they consider to be the worst questions to ask on a blind date and these are the top 7.

For some, blind dates can be a thrilling experience, but they can be terrifyingly awkward if you don’t know how to go about them. It’s natural to ask many questions about your date in an attempt to get to know them better, but there are some subjects that many believe are better left untouched.

These are 7 of the worst questions to ask on a blind date according to Koreans:

1. What does your father do?
In Korea, it’s considered unusual and crass to ask this question on a first date.

2. What are your religious beliefs?
Each religion is different so it is acceptable to briefly mention religious beliefs in passing. If you try to dig deeper, though, it may cause your date to become uncomfortable. Your date may become confused whether you decided to meet them on a blind date or for evangelism.

3. What political party do you support?
Of all the possible conversation topics, politics is definitely the most touchy. If you’re interested in not offending your blind date, then avoiding the topic of politics might be a good idea.
