►►FT Island’s Lee Hong Ki asks Taiwanese fans to marry him


user posted image

On February 28th, Korean boyband FT Island arrived in Taiwan for their concert.

To ensure that they would be in top form, they ate a Korean cuisine and had massage sessions before returning to the hotel immediately. The five members performed 18 songs to 2500 fans waving yellow flags, which seemed to like lead singer Lee HongKi the most.

When he sang “Marry Me”, asking if his fans would marry him, excited fans screamed “Yes”! During leader Choi Jonghoon’s performance onstage, HongKi suddenly went offstage among the fans to shake hands with them, causing the crowd to lose control.

The excited fans refused to leave the concert venue after the show ended, causing FT Island to reappear on stage to promise them a bigger and better performance next time, before they would contentedly leave.

After Jaebum’s mother’s post, the after effect of the situation has gotten worse.

According to Underground, Jaebum’s mother stated,

“Please give our thanks to everyone. Amidst all the rumors where it would have been easy to be in despair, Jaebum showed his mature side and, instead of getting discouraged, we started to have hope”.

“Although it is not a good end for Jaebum, I am relieved that this situation is now over. Please love the 2PM members.”

Also, Underground revealed their stance on the situation, “After JYPE posted the official withdrawal of Jaebum on February 25th, we were going to fight against the company’s irresponsible and inhumane treatment. However, Jaebum and his family, who have been battling all sorts of rumors and wounds during the past 6 months, did not want this situation to be an issue any longer. They said that time heals all wounds and did not wish for any more struggle, so we have decided to respect their wishes.”

►►KARA members lost 10kg for their sexy new “Lupin” look


As if their image from the “Mister” buttdance is not skinny enough, the KARA girls have decided to push 10 more kg (22 lbs.) off for “Lupin” too..

Through their harsh and strict diet, these KARA girls successfully lost 10kg altogether and went through an image transformation. Kara members “shed” their previously cute image and are now showing off a sexy womanly feel in their 3rd album.

The group’s management company stated, “Kara member Nicole lost 5kg by a diet where she controls her eating habits. Likewise, fellow member Han Seung Yeon lost at least 2kg through exercise.”

Additionally, members Park Gyuri and Kang Jiyoung also lost 2kg through light cardio exercises.

Man, these girls are already skinny as it is, especially 20-inch Goo Hara. I don’t think losing more weight at this point will make them “womanly.” Do you?

►►2AM’s Seulong is Lee Min Ho’s love rival for the drama “Personal Taste”


2AM’s Im Seulong is making his debut as an actor in the upcoming MBC drama Personal Taste. The drama has already gotten much attention from people because this will be the show that will feature the gay Lee Min Ho.

Im Seulong’s character’s name is Kim Tae Hoon. He will be playing the rival of Lee Min Ho which definitely calls for a love triangle. Kim Tae Hoon loves Hye Mi played by Choi Eun Seo but Hye Mi loves Jin Ho played by Lee Min Ho.

It gets confusing because somehow Son Ye Jin’s character then thinks Lee Min Ho is gay but Lee Min Ho secretly likes her.

The production staff said, “Tae Hoon really matches well with the personality Seulong has shown on variety programs. It is his first time acting but he is the best candidate for Tae Hoon.”

The first episode airs on March 31st. This means 2PM’s Taecyeon and 2AM’s Seulong will come face to face on television dramas. Let the battle of the One Day boys begin!

►►Wonder Girl SunMi goes on vacation and reveals future plans


I’m gonna miss my pretty Wonder Girl Sunmi :-(

Last month, Wonder Girls member Sunmi put her musical career on hold to further her studies. Since then, much has happened within the group as they welcomed new member Lim.

Although there has been much controversy surrounding JYP Entertainment as of late, it’s been revealed that Sunmi is taking a break and enjoying her free time.

Sunmi made her final performance at Pop-Con on February 20th and it was revealed today that shortly after this performance, Sunmi had left to go on a vacation before she starts on school life.

Today, an official said, “Sunmi went on vacation on the 25th. She is currently with her family and will soon be continuing her studies.”

But is there chance for a future comeback? Apparently so, as a representative revealed, “Sunmi revealed that after spending a year in the States, she would like to slowly ease back into her personal life. If she completes her studies or ever decides to resume her career as an idol, we will support her.”

So although she may be out of the K-pop scene for now, it seems there’s an option for Sunmi to come back. Whether she will reunite with the Wonder Girls or pursue her own solo career is still unknown.

►►KARA tops SNSD’s hit ‘Oh!’


Congratz! Their new concept kind of remind me of their old album ‘The First Blooming’, but I like it anyways XD

Kara’s recent comeback has garnered the attention of many! With a hot tune and an even catchier dance, the girls have been soaring over the competition–much so that they have even surpassed SNSD’s Oh! on music charts!

Kara’s hit song Lupin has effortlessly managed to kick SNSD’s song to the curb as they have reached #1 on the weekly charts of music portal site Dosirak. Much different from their previous songs, Lupin is catching the attention of fans with the new visual dance style.

T-ara came in a close second with their I Go Crazy Because of You, which was followed by SNSD in third place. In fourth place this week was 2AM with Can’t Let You Go, Even If I Die. Although they still hit it high on the music charts, they have come down one step since last week. Maybe it’s about time to promote a different song off their album.

In fifth place was Big Bang with their newest single, Lollipop Part Two. In sixth was CNBlue with I’m a Loner. The rest are as follows.

7th: Min Kyung Hoon’s It’s Love Because It Hurts
8th: 2NE1’s Try to Copy Me (falling 4 spots from last week)
9th: Lee Seung Gi’s Love Teaches You How to Drink
10th: 4men’s Can’t Do

Congrats to Kara for hitting it off so quickly!

►►The ‘Female Mulan’ in BEAST’s ‘Shock’ MV revealed!


LOL the mysterious lady in BEAST’s MV does kind of remind me of Fa Mulan with her flashy asian eyes XD

Who is that mystery lady who appeared in BEAST new MV ‘Shock’ released on 1st March?

A Cube Entertainment rep revealed, “The lady is a Cube Entertainment trainee. She is of the same age as 4Minute Kwon SoHyun, and is 170cm tall. She is currently preparing for her solo debut. We will be able to meet her as a singer soon.”

With the release of the MV, there were much curiosity amongst netizens with regard to this mystery lady. She has already earned herself the nickname of a ‘female Mulan’ with her charming single eyelids, huge eyes and chubby face. Some of netizens’ comments were “It is good that we will get to see her soon even though we didn’t learn of her upcoming debut.”

Meanwhile, BEAST is back with their 2nd album released on 1st March and will start promotions on the title song ‘Shock’ soon.

►►Coffee Prince actor Gong Yoo held fanmeeting in Japan


AH~ back to the good old Coffee Prince days ^^

Over the weekend, actor Gong Yoo held his first fanmeeting in Japan in three years; it follows his recent Seoul event in January which was his first fan event following his army discharge in December. There were actually two events, one in Kobe on the 26th and another in Yokohama on the 28th. The affair was titled “Gong Yoo Fanmeeting 2010 — With YOO.”

Prior to the meeting, Gong Yoo spoke to reporters and explained, “Things haven’t been decided yet, but I’m currently thinking of a next project that’ll be good enough to satisfy fans. I’d like to take a film role first, then do a drama for the fans.”

His Korean fanmeeting in January had a decent attendance size of 1,000, but these were even larger with an attendance of 5,000. The following photos are taken from the meeting with reporters preceding the Sunday event in Yokohama.

Good to see him back looking refreshed and healthy (and with almost Coffee Prince hair), isn’t it?
