►►SNSD’s Yuri to appear in a sitcom


Another singer’s wish to act has come true ^^

It has been concluded that Ye Jiwon, Chae Yejin, and Yuri will be casted for the sitcom that follows after “High Kick through the roof”. (the name of the sitcom has yet to be released)

It is said that these three woman will play the roles of sisters in the sitcom.

The three sisters will be jumbled into a love story in the sitcom.

Ye Jiwon became the queen of sitcoms since she played the voice of the quirky and cunning old lady very well, so people are expectant of her role in this sitcom as well.

Choi Yeojin, who is to play the second daughter, has been in the SBS drama “Dream,” MBC’s “My Girl”, and SBS’s “Surgeon Bong Dalhee”. Departing from the intelligent and conceited characters of those dramas, she will be taking transforming and taking on the challenge of a sitcom. Yuri will play a the youngest daughter who is accident-prone and just graduated from high school with no interest in university.

Yuri has acted as an immature high school student in the 2007 KBS2TV sitcom, “Unstoppable Marriage”.

“High Kick Through the Roof” will end on March 19th.

►►Tips to beautiful skin like Goo Hye Sun, Im Soo Jung, Kim Tae Hee, Song Hye Kyo


Interesting article I stumbled upon during my visit at Soompi ^^

8 Steps to clean and beautiful skin: (according to the article –tips/rules on how to have nice smooth skin such as celebrities like Goo Hye Sun, Im Soo Jung, Kim Tae Hee & Song Hye Kyo)

1. Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
Keeping this habit would maintain the ideal level of moisture for your body and water also help detoxify your inside.

2. Get sufficient amount of sleep
While asleep, your skin cells renew themselves 10 times faster than during day time. The dead surface cells are more quickly removed from the skin as well. The natural release of melatonin that enhances revival and healing of cells and DNA is best processed during the night time without any daylight. So, make sure to get enough sleep.

3. Get some fresh air:
Oxygen is vital in quicker renewing and enlivening of the skin cells. Air pollution is not ideal for good skin, therefore, if you live in the polluted city areas, it is good for you to take hikes or nature walks regularly.

4. Periodic exfoliation:
Periodic deep cleasing is important in removing dead cells on the skin surface. Without it, skin pores may widen or be covered and more
likely to create pimples and acne and even discolor the skin.

►►HyunAh brings on newest dance trend of 2010: the “Luxury Abs” dance


Remember the saucy hip dance of Brown Eyed Girls, the crab leg dance of SNSD, the Ring Ding Dong dance of SHINee, etc etc? well those are all so 2009!

http://lh3.ggpht.com/_xR16ekRntcQ/S0sortxtfYI/AAAAAAAAAOc/3ZxO4MS7J64/s800/2zywv45.jpg

HyunA, known as the second maknae of 4minute, starts off the new year with the first HOT popular dance move for 2010.

Since the release of her digital single ‘Change’, HyunA has performed a total of 3 live performances to promote her single and in that short amount of time she has managed to make her trademark thrust coined as the “Luxury Abs” dance.

Fans and non-fans have all been raving about her performances to the extent that some non-fans have now been converted.

She is definitely one of the hottest female solo artists to hit the stage.

►►”God Of Study” emerges as leading drama on Mondays & Tuesdays


So far so good! I’ve watched the first two episodes and God Of Study, in my friend’s words, MOTIVATES YOU TO STUDY! lol and I sure need that =.=;

and as a bonus, this guy (Lee Hyun Woo) is so freakin cute↓ even though he looks really really young I can’t believe he’s ’93 just like me (and even older!) lol now I feel young again XD

Week 2 has yielded more of a disparity between the new Monday-Tuesday shows — while Week 1 was pretty close between all the contenders, it seems the viewers have by now selected their favorites, and the numbers reflect those choices. AGB Nielsen numbers put KBS’s school drama God of Study firmly ahead of the competition with a 21.2% rating for its third episode, leaving its rivals, SBS’s historical medical show Jejoongwon and MBC’s trendy series Pasta, duking it out for second place with a respective 13.1% and 12.8%.

I’m not terribly surprised and I don’t begrudge any one series success over the others, because quality-wise I think all three are solid. They’ve all got their charms and flaws, so this probably boils down to a matter of taste (and buzz, and casting). I suppose in a business sense this is more of a disappointment for Jejoongwon (which went in with more buzz and anticipation than Pasta). The question is whether the numbers will level off here, or if the latter two will fall further.

As for me, I’m sticking with Pasta, and keeping an eye on God of Study. Sorry, Jejoongwon, you’ll have to take a backseat for now, since I’m swamped and I’ve got another sageuk on my plate at the mo’. But what a promising drama season it’s shaping up to be; there’s a nice variety of offerings and a good number of prospects, depending on your preference.

►►Leeteuk reveals that Super Junior’s 4th album would come very soon!


BRB gasping *0*

Super Junior traded the cute look for sexiness in 2009’s Sorry Sorry, a hit track that launched the thirteen-member group to the top of charts last spring. Music-wise, the boys have mostly been on the DL as individual members have been working on their own activities, but it looks like the boys will be reuniting soon for another album!

Members Leeteuk, Shindong, Siwon, Eunhyuk and Donghae traveled to Thailand recently to make an appearance on KPN Awards, an American-Idol-esque reality show for aspiring singers. During their guest appearance, the boys were interviewed and revealed their recent experiences in Thailand through a translator. When the MC told the boys that one of the contestants covered SuJu’s track It’s You in a recent episode, leader Leeteuk complimented the contestant for singing in a foreign language.

However, the tidbit that was by far the most interesting for kpop and ELFs alike was when Leeteuk went on to reveal that Super Junior would be releasing a fourth album very soon. Check out the cut with subtitles here yourself!

►►10Asia’s 10LINE analysis on SS501′s Kim Hyun Joong


Very interesting to know more about Hyun Joong! I did not know he was T.O.P’s friend lol


Clockwise from top center, musician Seo Tai-ji, SS501 member Kim Hyung-joon, singer Lee Hyo-ri and Kim Hyun-joong’s character Yoon Ji-hoo from KBS TV series “Boys Over Flowers”.

Kim Hyun-joong
Truth #1: He is a good-looking idol. He is a guy you would go out with regardless of his age. He is someone so pretty that he is likely to appear in a romance comic.
Truth #2: He was a runaway teenager who has experienced almost every part-time job out in the world. He is the most four-dimensional celebrity in Korea. He is a rock mania whose body would squirm at the cheesy lines he had to say in hit TV series “Boys Over Flowers.”
Truth #3: He is a happy-go-lucky sort of person, unpredictable and hence, we become increasingly curious. Attracted.

Seo Taiji
Kim Hyun-joong’s favorite musician. The first record Kim ever bought was Seo Taeji & Boys’ second album. Kim had enjoyed his studies so much up till elementary school that he would wake up at 6 A.M. everyday to study but after listening to Seo Tae-ji’s music, he gave up on his studies to become a bassist in a rock band. That is why Kim took a one year leave during his high school days, went to a new school and ran away from home because his parents were against him pursuing music. Up to this point, it may look like he walked the typical path many rockers take on in order to achieve their dreams. But Kim worked part-time at a fried chicken restaurant and did manual labor to buy his own guitar, then worked again for about a year after running away from his house a second time. He made about a total 100 million won working part-time jobs. “I taught myself (how to live in society) by making money earlier than others,” Kim said of how important he considers this time period. This is why as soon as he debuted as a member of SS501, he believed “time is money.”

►►Andy’s last thought before entering military service, “I think of Shin Hye Sung hyung the most”


It’s certainly a sad day for Shinhwa fans as one of the members, Andy, is now off to serve in the South Korean army :-(

ShinHwa Andy picks member Shin HyeSung as the member he thinks of the most.

Andy reported for his 20-months military services at ChoongNam Nonsan camp at 1pm on 11th January. He gave up his American citizenship in 2003 and came back to Korea for his celebrity promotions and is the only ShinHwa member doing active service.

On the day, about 200 fans were present to send him off to his military service. He was accompanied by ShinHwa members Eric and Kim DongWan who are currently serving their military services.

Andy said, “At this point in time, I think of the members the most. Especially Shin HyeSung hyung. HyeSungie hyung is the only who did not contact me.”

►►T-ara to promote album track ‘Like the First Time’ after “Bo Peep Bo Peep”


ah…at first I liked this song but then “Bo Peep Bo Peep” seems more catchy now lol

T-ara to perform album track ‘Like the First Time’ on the 15th.

On the January 15th episode of KBS 2TV’s Music Bank, they will start performing the track “Like the First Time”. Through various music sites, T-ara let their fans choose which song will be their title track. Although ‘Like the First Time’ recieved more votes, the margin was not far. Contrary to the votes, T-ara decided to go with Bo Peep Bo Peep as their title track.

Even with NO promotions of the song ‘Like the First Time’, it has charted consistently on the top 10 on alot of music charts like bugs, melon, soribada and dosirak.

With Bo Peep Bo Peep sweeping the online and music shows, winning them 4 mutizens and topping alot of charts, they are now gonna promote the other candidate ‘Like the First Time’.

With Bo Peep Bo Peep, T-ara showed off a cutesy and charming side. Now, they want to show off their sexy and mature side. With this sudden transformation, they wish to appeal more people to their music.

With all these projects, T-ara promoting ‘Like the First Time’. while 2 members Eunjung and Hyomin will promote ‘Wonder Woman’ and member Jiyeon with her drama “God of Study”, we hope to see them come out successful.

►►JYP chose Wonder Girl SunYe as his ideal type over SoHee

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On KBS 2TV ‘Sweet Night’ aired on 10th January, singer producer Park Jin Young reveals his ideal type of girl. That day, Park Jin Young have to choose from female celebrities like Rainbow Kim JaeKyung, Jung YoonHye, gagwoman Kim Sook, actresses Kang EunBin, Kim JungMin, Yang MiRa, Lee YooJin, singer NS YoonJi etc.

And WonderGirls SunYe and SooHee appeared together as the finalists for ‘top 32 ideal type worldcup’ where Park JinYoung has to choose one of them.

In the end, Park Jin Young chose SunYe after much thinking and relayed a message to SoHee on the show, “SunYe is the leader and your unnie, so I chose her.”

Meanwhile, Park Jin Young chose actress Lee YeonHee as his ultimate ideal type of woman on the show.

Cr: Starnews + Sookyeong

It’s kinda creepy this match came up…I mean not only is JYP their producer but also like twice (3x?) their age @_@ But it’s definitely good he chose Lee Yeon Hee overall cause she was one of my fave actresses too ^^
