It has been revealed that 24K was included on a blacklist by the government of former president Park Geun Hye.

The government of the now-impeached president had compiled a blacklist with the names of over 9,400 artists and celebrities.

The blacklist was created to outline which artists would be excluded from receiving support from the state.

Yoona will release a digital single "To You"



Girls' Generation member and actress Yoona will release a digital single this week in collaboration with a singer-songwriter currently starring in a reality show with her, her agency said Wednesday. The new single, "To You," will be released at local online music stores at 6 p.m. on Sunday, according to SM Entertainment.

The song, a collaboration with Lee Sang-soon, a singer-songwriter well known as the husband of singer Lee Hyo-ri, is an acoustic ballad conjuring up bucolic sceneries of Jeju Island, according to her agency.

The two, along with Hyo-ri, are currently appearing on a reality show set against the backdrop of the southern resort island. The show "Hyori's Home Stay" by JTBC motivated the collaboration. Lee wrote the music for the single, and Yoona -- whose full name is Im Yoon-ah -- authored the lyrics. Several teaser images were released prior to the song's unveiling on her official homepage and her band's the social media account.

Yoona is also to hold her first meet-and-greet on May 20 under the title, "So Wonderful Day #Story_1," in a bid to reach out to a wider pool of fans with a friendlier image.



She's a great fit on the show! But I still would like to see a male helper if they decide to do a summer season.

The Return of Superman Ep 223





I don't know if KBS just forgot about this week's episode, or have stopped uploading to YouTube all together =( This week, Sian gets seperated from his sisters. Siha's first 48 hours alone with his dad come to a close. Seungjae takes care of a pig for the day. And William meets up with Ricky Kim and his kids. I remember when his youngest was born on Oh My Baby, she's so big now. They're living somewhere in Orange County now.

Stars with an Athletic Past

We're talking about various issues and 'talks of the town' regarding our stars in Korea... this is "CELEBRITALK"! Well, there are a lot of celebrities in movies and on television who used to be athletes when they were younger – and we're going to take a look at some of them, from singers to movie stars.






I didn't know that about Uee's dad. If it was me I would be at every game, lounging in a suite, drinking everything because I wouldn't have to worry about $15 drinks. Also, all the nachos.

1. [+3,857, -338] The sudden Japanese startled me ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ let's not forget that they're a right-wing Japanese group

2. [+2,732, -159] Don't forget that they're a right-wing Japanese group. They have no problem playing games with their fans where they're expected to match the breast size to the members. They're a barbaric group all around. No idea why Koreans are being asked to pick from a lot like them. Let's let the show fail like 'Idol School'.

3. [+1,178, -93] This is the one season I really want to fail but I'm sure everyone will swear through watching it

4. [+379, -57] Everyone, please boycott it ㅠㅠ They're a right-wing group that performs with the rising sun flag and they're only interested in advancing to Korea because the Twice members are doing well. If this ends up doing well, Japan might take over Korea's music industry...

5. [+234, -13] Never did I think I'd hear Japanese on a Korean TV show, goddamn ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
