We saw the boys with black wings in their teaser images. They take on the famous story ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde‘ to their album concept. They’re first seen smiling serenely and dressed in white, but obviously there’s something wrong when we see snakes and other creepy crawlies featured in the teaser.
The creepiness goes up a bit with the words “You’re beautiful and I want to own you forever“. The boys go through a transformation into a ‘demon’, with crazy eye makeup and even more bugs. VIXX’s official YouTube channel wrote: “VIXX introduces mans who turned into a demon due to a hurt of love, but still has internal duality, good and evil through ‘Jekyll & hyde’ concept. [sic]”
Did the MV live up to your expectations?
TVXQ’s Yunho tried out a look he’s never tried before!
Usually, we’re used to seeing Yunho fierce and strong, but for ‘High Cut’ he decided to go for a more innocent, and – dare I say it – helpless look. Instead of the masculine image he usually has on, he went for a more young, boyish image with shorts and scarves.
During the interview, he talked about his drama ‘Queen of Ambition’, where he said, “While I was filming, I thought I was so lucky. The sunbaes just all watched at first, but when we got close, I learned so much. I especially got close with Kwon Sang Woo hyung, and he really took good care of me.”
On reaching their 10th anniversary soon, he said, “You can’t help but be lonely when you become a sunbae. I want to break away from that, so every time a new album comes out, I go around personally to hoobae’s waiting rooms and give them our CD.”
He also said, “I would have married about now [if I wasn’t a celebrity]. I wanted to marry when my parents did, but that age has already passed. Realistically, I don’t think it’s time yet. I’ll get married when I can be responsible for someone and I’m definitely married.”
What do you think about this look for him?
2PM’s Jun.K posted a photo to his Twitter showing his gratitude for their fans’ thoughtful gifts.
Clustered around at table at a waiting room backstage, Jun.K’s photo shows the 2PM members gathered around a feast of a meal prepared by Hottests in support for their long-awaited comeback. Although all of the members look amazing, Taecyeon particularly wows with his baby face and stuffed cheeks!
2PM, who has made a comeback with “Grown”, has been continuing promotions for their new albums on music shows.
Singer and ‘Running Man’ star Kim Jong Kook proudly displayed his chiseled legs on the latest episode of ‘Running Man’.
The newest broadcast saw the ‘Running Man’ members – along with guests Uhm Jung Hwa and Kim Sang Kyung – chasing after the ‘betrayers club’ of HaHa, Ji Suk Jin, and Lee Kwang Soo, who had run away with the grand prize that was supposed to be given with the winner.
One of the missions along the way to apprehending the culprits was gathering as many inner tubes as possible and stacking them on their team’s side of the playing field. Kim Jong Kook took the time to layer them on himself, which, combined with the shorts he had been wearing, gave the (not unpleasant) effect that he wasn’t wearing any pants at all!
Drawing the viewers’ attention to his fit and tanned legs, the ‘Commander’ definitely gained a few more female fans this episode, we’re sure.

LUNAFLY have become the K-pop cover kings of the past few months with a host of well done covers of popular Western songs. So it comes as somewhat of a surprise that instead of a cover, the group released a BTS-style music video for their song “Van Gogh”.
The MV is packed full of cuteness and fun, so check it out below!
After pulling off another successful performance on SBS’s ‘Inkigayo’, rookie group Hello Venus thanked their fans for supporting their stage.
“Did you see today’s ‘Inkigayo’ stage??” they posted to their official Twitter earlier today. “We’re so confident thanks to your support~!! Got a lot of energy today~!!!”
However, the loud fanchants also had them slightly worried. “But to everyone who came today……are your vocal cords all right?? *.*” they continued, displaying their disbelief at the incredibly loud chants they received on their ‘Inkigayo’ performance.
Girl’s Day has managed to snag a chicken CF contract for themselves!
The girls filmed their CF on the 17th, and they all did their own version of the ‘Cutie Player’ in a cute version and a hungry version. BHC Chicken said, “Even though the filming went for a while, all the girls never lose their energy. Thanks to them, BHC Chicken’s clean image and Girl’s Day’s cute character made the best combination ever.”
It’s often said that chicken CFs are only for top stars, so it’s nice to see Girl’s Day snag one for themselves! The CFs will start airing the last week of May, so keep a lookout for it!
Beautiful actress Han Ye Seul approved of INFINITE’s Sunggyu and his eye for beauty.
During her appearance on MBC’s ‘Entertainment Relay’, she was given the news that Sunggyu had chosen her as someone he would like to film ‘We Got Married’ with.
“I heard from my friends that INFINITE’s cutie Sunggyu wants to get married with me,” she said. After a moment’s pondering, she added, “I’m flattered.”
Continuing the fantasy, she was asked how she would wake up Sunggyu if, hypothetically, they were married and he was sleeping in the morning. After some thought, she answered, “Sunggyu, you need to go out and earn money. You have to do that when you’re still young,” bringing the set down with laughter.
The resident actor and actress on SBS’s ‘Barefoot Friends’ stepped into impromptu roles in a parody of ‘Wind Blows in Winter’ on the latest episode.
Traveling to Indonesia, the newest broadcast found the cast and crew given the mission, once again, to survive for 24 hours in the foreign country based on only what they could provide for themselves as a normal, everyday person.
Egged on by Kang Ho Dong and Yoon Jong Shin, UEE and Kim Hyun Joong ended up working together – providing the small screen with a beauty ratio that was simply out of this world.
Taking advantage of the unique opportunity, Kang Ho Dong told them, “The two of you look like a painting. We’ll get out of the way” – secretly letting them do all the work.
Motivations aside, UEE and Kim Hyun Joong soon found themselves engrossed in the job at hand, segueing into a parody of the SBS drama, ‘Work Blows in Winter’.
“I have a lot of money, but I came here to help oppa,” UEE told him. “If you have a lot of money, give me some. Please stop this,” Kim Hyun Joong replied in a drama tone.
Check out the full episode of ‘Barefoot Friends’ below!

Scrunched up into a corner, Gil lamented their position on Twitter earlier today. “Many people went on vacation today…going back to Seoul after a Daegu concert…all the seats were sold out” he said. “The photo shows two of Korea’s self-named top celebrities…and their real life.”
Spread out in the aisle barefoot, Gil’s trademark charisma is nowhere to be found, while Gary tries to hide in the corner with a straw fedora and a cup of coffee. For some reason, this image of Gary seems more familiar to us!
“First time on Twitter in a while!” he posted earlier today. “Keke, taking a break in New York and snapped a photo with Jongup.”
The photo shows Himchan and Jongup posing with two of New York’s ubiquitous ‘Liberty Ladies’, actors or actresses dressed up to resemble the city’s famous Statue of Liberty. Standing tall with red, white, and blue draped around their shoulders, they look positively American! (‘Murica!)
Popular SBS variety program ‘Running Man’ have invited two of Korea’s most handsome men, actors Kim Soo Hyun and Lee Hyun Woo, to run with them next week!
Despite their good looks, however, it seems like they won’t be able to escape from the brutal and challenging missions that define ‘Running Man’. Based around an athletics championship race, the preview shows the return of the dreaded ‘foot massage floor’ as well as an enormous game with hundreds of civilians.
Check out the preview below, and don’t forget to tune in next week!
After baring their chocolate abs, Sanghun, Hyukjin, Changbum, Chanyong, Jonghwan, Rockhyun, and Minwoo continued to leave fans’ hearts fluttering as they unveiled sexy teaser photos, putting their charisma and muscular figures on display. Now they’re back again with their first video teaser, lying among a bed of flowers. However, in between the flowery shots you see burning and gunshots, suggesting that the song might not be as bright themed as you think.
The boys will release their mini album ‘Real 100%‘ on May 23 online as they make a comeback with title track, “Want U Back“, while the offline release will take place on the 27th.
Check out the teaser below!
Posing on the set of his radio show, ‘Super Junior’s Kiss the Radio’ (or ‘Sukira’ for short), he fires a double whammy of V-signs and aegyo toward the camera. In front of him is a container of snacks that were sent to him by dedicated ELF.
“Food that came to Sukira on Friday ^^!!” he posted earlier today. “We ate it well.”
Her agency Namoo Actors revealed behind-the-scenes photos of the actress on set, and as fans would expect, she looked beautiful in white. What isn’t expected, however, is what was on her mind during filming.
The May 15th episode of MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday drama revealed Seo Mi Do (Shin Se Kyung) in a wedding dress for the first time. After shooting, Shin Se Kyung commented, “Though it was important to portray the pressure and nervousness Seo Mi Deo feels, I had been filming since morning, so I hadn’t eaten and I was incredibly hungry. I kept assuring myself, ‘After this scene, I’ll eat,’ over and over again.
A rep from Namoo Actors said, “When someone exhausts their emotions, it affects their stamina. Because she has a tight schedule, she usually makes sure to eat her meals. Shin Se Kyung isn’t particularly picky about her food, and when there’s something tasty, she tells the people around her to try some too. She’s also great at describing the taste of food.”
What do you think of the Shin Se Kyung behind the scenes?
On the May 18th broadcast of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Entertainment Relay‘, Super Junior‘s Kyuhyun, f(x)‘s Sulli, and YoonA were interviewed on the set of their ‘SKT LTE‘ CF.
When complimented on her ‘ant waist’, YoonA shared, “I don’t do anything special to maintain my waistline.” The reporter asked, “How can you have such a waistline if you don’t do anything to maintain it?”, to which YoonA wittily replied, “How can an ‘ant waist’ be so big? I don’t have an ‘ant waist’.”
The reporter also talked about YoonA’ sexy exposure of her abs during the ‘Dream Concert‘ and asked, “Are you in charge of the sexy image in Girls’ Generation now?”, YoonA answered, “No. Was that even sexy?” But when YoonA was asked who has the best figure out of the three of them, she also laughed as she picked her own photo.
Newlywed Seo Ji Suk held the press conference for his marriage on the 18th, and it was clear to see that the actor was smitten with his bride.
He commented, “I met her at a get-together with drinks last year. I fell in love at first sight, so I approached her right away. I followed her constantly. With that chance, I was able to get married.”
When asked what drew him to her, Seo Ji Suk answered, “She’s the style I like. Close to my ideal type. She’s petite and incredibly pretty.”
4men, IU, and Yurisangja performed congratulatory songs for the actor-florist couple, while SS501’s Heo Young Saeng officiated the wedding.
Congratulations to Seo Ji Suk and his wife!
Ahead of the boys’ first full length album, ‘XOXO (Kiss&Hug)‘, the group has been flooding their homepage with teaser photos. The boys have released pictures for the other 9 members already, so fans have been staying on their toes for the last 3.
The solo shots seem to continue with the school theme, but more of the outside of class activities, like football, snack time, and making weird faces (?). In any event, the boys are pulling out all their charisma and are ready to take on another promotion cycle. The boys also celebrate their first year with 2 trophies, smiling brightly all the while.
As mentioned earlier, EXO-K and EXO-M will be promoting as EXO (that means all 12 members) this time around and travel back and forth between Korea and China to promote!
Check out the pictures below!
4men have done it once again.
The vocal group sold out their year-end concert, ‘Trust and Go Concert’, in 2012, and now their ‘2013 4men Concert – I’ll Let You Listen’, has sold out all 3 events. 4men first opened the concert tour on the 17th-19th at Yonsei University in Seoul for the school’s 100th year since its founding. During this concert, they had their first live performance of their latest single “Propose Song”.
Reviews must have been good as the tickets for their next stops have also sold out. The upcoming concert will also feature a special event for fans to get closer to 4men by inviting a select few on stage for a joint performance.
The group definitely have another thing to celebrate about after the success of their latest single, “Propose Song”, on music charts.
Their next stops for ‘2013 4men Concert – I’ll Let You Listen’ tour are on June 1 at Youngnam University in Seoul and on June 8 at the KBS Hall in Busan.
