►►Who worked it better? 2NE1’s Minzy vs. Big Bang’s G-Dragon!


G-dragon and his hoobae Minzy were spotted wearing the same black skull jacket!

Of course with G-D and his abnormal fashion style, the way both artists presented their jacket differed quite a lot. For one thing, G-D kept it simple with one black and white whereas Minzy went with a more colorful approach.

►►DBSK’s Yoochun kissed T-ara’s Eunjung on the lips?


haha Eunjung is my favorite T-ara member so this is okay I guess..

It’s been revealed that TVXQ’s Yoochun shared a kiss with T-ara’s leader Eunjung for TVXQ’s drama Dating on Earth (지구에서 연애 중) back in 2006.

Eunjung’s involvement with this drama marked her debut into the acting scene.

Many fans were already aware that these two made an appearance on the same drama after the subject arose last month; however, the specific topic of a supposed kiss has become a hot issue only recently. Through an online portal site, netizens said things like, “It seems like Eunjung prepared a lot to debut with T-ara” and “Her appearance has a different charm than the one she has nowadays.”

Even though the kiss was just a peck, I’m sure Cassiopeians are going to be all over this one. Eunjung, get your helmet on!

but in front of Sulli’s “hehe~” laugh I’m just like the candlelight in front of the typhoon…

Time seems to fly like an arrow…

I had laughed until my stomach hurts during the filmingㅋㅋ
Recently there isnt anything that makes me laugh so I felt good to be able to laugh after such a long time
Sulli’s laugh can make everything brighter

Sulli is the truth***

* sulli + heechul –> sulhee
** poo-ing poo-ing (뿌잉뿌잉) is puffy cheek, that’s what heechul was doing in the photo
*** Sulli’s real name is “Jinli” which means “truth” and “설리가 진리” (“Sulli is Jinli” or “Sulli is the truth”) is the pharse that fans use to call her (correct me if I’m wrong about this since I dont follow f(x) )

►►Actor Kim Bum gets sued for 500 million won in damages!


500 million won = $432,500 USD …holy snap that’s a lot of money @_@

Oh and bb, your silver hair looks ridiculous :-(

http://i50.tinypic.com/2ecg038.jpg

Kim Bum, one of the stars of the KBS smash hit drama “Boys Over Flowers,” was questioned by prosecutors for about an hour last week over a legal dispute between his former and current agencies, according to the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office Thursday.

The summons came after the president of Eyagi Entertainment, identified only as Hwang, Kim’s former agent, filed a damage suit against Kim and his agency KingKong Entertainment for an alleged breach of contract.

Eyagi Entertainment said it signed a contract with Kim in October 2008 to represent him for the next six years and paid him 150 million won, but that the actor cancelled the contract unilaterally around March 2009 when”Boys Over Flowers” was in its final episodes.

Eyagi said Kim has earned nearly 800 million won since he terminated the contract. It filed the suit with a Seoul district court, claiming 500 million in damages.

But KingKong Entertainment denied that a contract violation had occurred.

“It’s not a breach of contract by the actor but a dispute caused in the process of merger and demerger between KingKong Entertainment and Eyagi Entertainment. The contract was cancelled as Eyagi did not keep the promises it made during the merger process,” it said. “We are going to take legal steps.”

The prosecution questioned Eyagi Entertainment’s chief in December. It also summoned KingKong Enertainment’s head, identified only as Lee, on Feb. 1 for questioning.

Kim Bum, born in 1989, made his acting debut in the MBC drama “The Daring Sisters,” and rose to stardom with “Boys Over Flowers.”

►►G-Dragon reveals the secrets behind his first full solo album “Heartbreaker”


G-Dragon is a perfectionist so I’m not that surprised everything he makes has so much meanings behind them ;-)

Kwon Jiyong’s ‘Heartbreaker’ saw the light of this world on August 18, 2009. This day also happened to be G-Dragon’s birthday.

”It was actually scheduled to be out in April, but I didn’t like it. I didn’t feel like a piece of work that I’d been looking forward to for ten years; there was just something missing. I didn’t know how long it would be til my turn to go solo came again.. That one album was a gamble for me.”

During the preparation of his solo album, Big Bang started Japanese promotions. During the months they were active there, if there was nothing on G-Dragon’s schedule for even a single day, he would fly back to Korea to work on the album and fly back at night. While the other members felt the freedom of being able to shop and have fun without being watched or followed, G-Dragon was out of his mind looking for performance outfits.

”Writing songs, buying performance outfits, being at meetings via webcam..I think my album was the only thing I was thinking about for 24 hours a day. I wanted to make an album that I had contributed to as much as possible. I wanted people to think not just that it’s been ‘made’, but ‘Kwon Jiyong made this’. I even went a little over the top by concerning over things like font, colour and decoration. I wanted to release an album that seemed more like a wrapped up gift than a normal, standard CD. So that people can open the case like a present and anticipate what might be inside, even if its not expensive. I think the album designers might’ve thought I was a big weird; I would call in the middle of the night whenever I got a new idea. (laughs)”

He became totally immersed in working on his album.

►►BEG Narsha’s last kiss was recent + she sleeps with her eyes open?


Looks like BEG Narsha is more of a mystery than we thought lol

“One night, i noticed that the TV was left on & i saw Narsha sitting there. However, I found it really strange that she didn’t move or laugh. Upon a closer look, I realised that she was actually sleeping with her eyes open!”, said Ga-In.

Soli J from Mighty Mouth who is close to Narsha & goes drinking with her confirmed this. “I’ve had to send Narsha home quite a few times after drinking. Although we’ve reached her place, she’ll not alight from the car, but just lie down & stare blankly upwards. Upon a closer look, I realised that she was actually sleeping with her eyes open!”.
