►►G-Dragon, “I like girls who have both looks and personalities like cats”

Although his best friend GaHo is a dog, G-Dragon has a much bigger picture in mind for his ideal type..

The lyrics and melodies of the songs I’ve written are all my own experiences. Indirect experiences through talking to others or watching movies and stuff. When I’m in love I can only think of happy lyrics, while when I’ve just broken up only sad lyrics come to mind. Songs like ‘She’s Gone’ are a collection of the emotions I felt while watching particular movies.

The songs G-Dragon (Real name: Kwon Jiyong, 23) writes are all his own experiences. Anyone who’s sharp would’ve picked up his true feelings while listening to his songs.

I think I have to write honestly so that the person listening can feel what I feel. So they can feel the pain for themselves and be moved. I don’t think it’s possible for someone to be touched by a piece of music that’s been made up from nothing.”

He has, of course, been in love. But the people around him just called it ‘cute puppy love’.

I thought I was in love but my closest friends still tell me ‘You’ve never been in real love’. Maybe because I’m the type of person who suddenly gets really crazy about something and equally suddenly gets over it. Though I do date for a while…”

He’s also the type of person who gives everything he has to the woman he loves. Even to the point where it sometimes causes inconvenience to his work. He shows his natural unmade self, wanting to be seen just as Kwon Jiyong, not a celebrity; for this reason he is very open even in crowds.

“It’s childish, but I did all that stuff like letting out balloons from the trunk and opening it, and borrowing cafés for the day to do mini concerts. (laughs) I didn’t want my girlfriend to see me as a celebrity so I would go to amusement parks with her with my face covered, and did everything she wanted to do. People say I’m an idiot for not caring about scandals. Even President Yang tells me that I have to be careful to meet the right girl.”

His ideal type is a girl who’s ‘like a cat’.


►►C.N BLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa and SNSD’s Seohyun to be a new couple in “We Got Married”!

Been wondering where the heck have these SHINee boys been around Lunar New Year? Well it’s been revealed that they have traveled to Hong Kong and attended a countdown event on February 13th there with a Hong Kong girl group “Hotcha”.

Popular Korean Group SHINee, Asia Popular Singer Raymond Lam and Local Hong Kong group HotCha showed up at the Tuen Mun Town Plaza 2 nights ago for a countdown event. SHINee followed the local HK customs and played games with fans such as “Balloon Popping Game” as well as singing and dancing to a few songs, making fangirls scream.

The 5 boys only took interviews after the event ended and translators mentioned that they wouldn’t answer anything regarding girls or dating. SHINee said: “We’re very happy as it is our first time spending Chinese New Years with Chinese people. Even though we don’t know what “Laisees” are, we think it relates to “Gong Hei Fat Choi.”. Regarding the fans’ overwhelming response, SHINee mentioned that they were indeed a little bit surprised at the airport when fans crowded them but they were still very happy. After close contact with fans, they thought that HK fans and Korean fans are the same, both really loves them.

When asked what they did in HK, SHINee said: “It’s our first time here in HK so we went to the Victoria Peak because we are unaware of other tourist attractions but we know that HK is famous for shopping.” For Valentine’s Day, they spent it with SHINee members and friends.

After being on the same stage as SHINee, Raymond Lam said “There were lots of fans born after 1990′s and the screams and shouting made the event seem like a concert.”

In addition, HotCha mentioned that they were all mesmerized by SHINee: “They sing really good live, have a lot of energy and their moves are so coordinated. We learnt something from them and treated them candies, snacks and we also gave them our new CD. When asked whether they swapped contact numbers, the girls said “telephone bills are expensive so we swapped MSN instead.”

►►2PM’s Taecyeon falls in love with a woman who can cook in his drama

2PM’s Taecyeon will star in a drama called Cinderalla’s Sister which will air on March after KBS Chuno. It’s been revealed that his character, Jungwoo, is very similar to to Taecyeon in reality!

Jungwoo is an intelligent young adult who falls in love with Eunjo (played by Moon Geun Young). Because Jungwoo grew up in a divorced household, it wasn’t easy for him to find a woman to fall in love with. Turns out that the reason he ended up falling for Eunjo was… food. A representative of the producers of the drama stated, “Jungwoo is someone who didn’t get to eat meals prepared by his mom. The first woman who prepares a meal for him is Eunjo. After that event, Jungwoo decides to love her forever.”

This happens to be sort of the same in real life for Taecyeon; a JYPE rep stated, “Taecyeon is known for his fast eating. Even in his group [2PM], he is a beast at eating. … Although it’s his first time acting, there are a lot of similarities between the character and himself, so we are confident that he will do well.”

The filming for Cinderalla’s Sister is set to begin this week. Stay tuned for this drama on March!

In the recent recording of SBS ‘Kang Shim Jang,’ Seohyun confessed, “I had a very difficult time recording the part that says ‘Oppa Saranghae [Oppa, I love you]‘.
