►►BEAST’s Doojoon, “I didn’t want to return to Korea”


My kind-hearted leader Doojoon…why so handsome and adorable?! >.<

BEAST’s leader Yoon Doojoon confessed that he didn’t want to return to Korea before.

Yoon Doojoon is currently a fixed member on the corner ‘Danbi’ of MBC’s “Sunday Sunday Night.” ‘Danbi’ is a show about showing foreign countries with poor environments being visited as they are serviced. Recently, an episode of Haiti and the refugee camp has brought a great deal of attention.

Yoon Doojoon had an interview with T-News and confessed, “While filming ‘Danbi’, I didn’t want to come back to Korea.” He also said, “When we went to Kenya around the Masai (excuse the spelling if it is incorrect) and when we met there, I really had the thought of not wanting to come back. I normally like nature with the mountains and the sea, and the surroundings there were so refrshing and the view was indeed paradise. I felt nature peacefully.

Also, he said, “More than anything, when I laid down on the ground to sleep, the stars that filled the sky looked amazing. It’s something you can never see in Seoul and it was a sparkling scene that sparkled. That was when I didn’t want to come back to Korea.”

Through the show ‘Danbi’, Yoon Doojoon gained a lot of love as he didn’t hesitate to throw himself out there to work and did what he was told without a complaint. With this image, he even earned the nickname ‘Namchindol’ (which means Boyfriend Idol).

He said, “I’m always filming with a thankful heart. Of course, there’s the meaning behind the show which is to be charitable but through meeting others, I feel as if I’m learning more. I’m truly thankful that this is a chance for me to broaden my experiences and knowledge.”

Yoon Doojoon is currently promoting the title song ‘Shock’ of Beast’s 2nd album. On the past 25th, Beast had won 1st place on Mnet Countdown after their debut as he even showed tears of joy.

►►2AM SeulOng’s ideal woman is 23 years older than him?


’2AM’ Im Seulong attracted eyes by revealing an ideal woman who was unrelated to age matters.

In the episode of SBS <Shin DongYup’s 300> aired on the 28th, Im Seulong said, “The last time I had a girlfriend was during my high school years. I think I mind a lot about expectations towards a woman when I date her.”

He then added, “However, I think age doesn’t matter at all in love. My original ideal woman is Kyun Mi Ri.” (SeulOng is a 1987 while Mi Ri, the actress who is most famous for her evil character from “Dae Jang Geum”, is a 1964…that’s 23 years apart!)

’2AM’ Jung Jinwoon, also appearing on the same episode, agreed with Seulong about age difference not mattering in love.

Jung Jinwoon said, “I don’t care up to 6 years older (women). I think it’s because my own hyung is older than me by 6 years.”

On the other hand, Im Seulong is going to make his debut as an actor in the MBC drama <Personal Preference>, featuring Lee Minho-Son YeJin, which is going to be aired on the coming 31st.

►►BEAST, “2NE1 is really similar to us; they’re a really cool group”


In the Star Interview, BEAST members were asked what who their fave girl group is, and Ki Kwang was like, our company’s 4Minute ^^; and being all cutesy but then they were like seriously and so they had to think and then Ki Kwang said, “Well, I guess it’d have to be, how similar to us, they’re pursuing their own music, 2NE1 who is always working hard and showing their unique colours. They’re a really cool girl group.”

And then Doojoon replies and says, “Ki Kwang-kun said that they’re too great for us, we can’t even dream about it.”

And then they somehow end up at the conclusion that all the girl groups are too great for them and how they should simply stick to 4Minute.

►►2PM’s Nichkhun, “I had my first kiss at 17 years old”


haha Angel Khun got exposed!

http://i44.tinypic.com/2ypg907.jpg

On the 27th’s MBC TV ‘We Got Married’, Nickhun revealed when he had his first kiss at his visit to JoKwon and Gain’s house, when they were questioning(?) him.

JoKwon asked Nickhun, “Do you like skinship”, and Nickhun answered, “Of course”. At Nickhun’s answer, JoKwon asked again, “How does hyung do skinship”, and the flustered Nickhun answered with an awkward smile, “There are basics”.

Gain then asked teasingly, “Then did you kiss before? Of course you did, right”, and Nickhun avoided the answer by saying, “Enjoy the food”.

At this, JoKwon threatened a threat unlike a threat, “We have a lie detector”, and Gain then quickly added, “When did you have your first kiss?”

Finally, Nickhun gave in and revealed, “When I was 17″.

►►Ninja assassin Rain wrestles on the streets!


Have you ever heard of a ninja assassin who can wrestle? The Rainism is back!

Officially back to Korea for his impending activities on BACK TO THE BASIC as a singer, Rain has launched off his public appearance, by wrestling his fans on the bustling streets of Myung Dong! Stripping off his elegant image of a world superstar, Rain Jung Ji Hoon has once again lived up to the name of the most perfect man in Korea by defeating all four participants!

The reason for displaying such an exotic show was actually to keep a promise he made with the netizens, for a segment on KBS 2TV’s talk show, Win Win. This corner, namely Keep the Promise Project, follows a unique format where the show offers the netizens to pledge to perform an anything of bizarre nature, in exchange of the celebrity committing something out-of-normal as well. On this very episode, Rain was to keep the promise of having a wrestling battle on the open streets.

►►D-NA, “We don’t care what netizens say; it’s an honor to be compared to DBSK”


A D-NA member is related to a DBSK member? That’s kinda funny..

Because all the members of D-NA like DBSK so much, when they are monitored the same image comes out. “Truthfully mean comments hurt us but we don’t hate them. Since we’re rookies, it’s and honor to be compared to DBSK sunbaes. We think criticism is essential. If we didn’t care then it would be unlawful.” (Dae Guk Nam Ah)

The average age of 17.4, the 5 member rookie boy group Dae Guk Nam ah. Even though the 5 boys are young they’re a huge hit. An emphasized harmonized debut single “Admiring Boy” and a concept that is similar to DBSK’s ‘Hug.’ “Though we got criticized, these criticisms make us want to work harder,” says leader Suhoon. Dreaming of being the second DBSK is the five members of Dae Guk Nam Ah Suhoon, Hyunchul, Hyunmin, Injoon, and Jihwan. ‘Best influence in the music industry artist’, they were not the aspirations containing ‘False Fame’. The five boys, to the abilities of their ages, used harmony, dance, and amazing skills to capture the attention of the fans. To make it long, 5 years, to make it short, 1 year and a half the 5 boys went through harsh practice and the hidden talent in their lives were revealed and prevailed.

The members’ past is also striking. For Jihwan, he was picked in SBS StarKing at the age of thirteen for his phenomenal popping. Also Suhoon is a relative of 2PM’s Junsu. Junsu, born in Daegu, is Suhoon’s father’s sister’s son.

“Junsu Hyung went to the same music school as me but I just knew him as one of my teacher’s students. But when I went to my grandmother’s 70th birthday and sang a song, a relative of mine said that ‘My son is a singer too,’ and talked about Junsu Hyung. And that’s how I found out that Junsu Hyung was my relative. Before debuting I looked for Junsu Hyung at the musical broadcasting studio and he told me ‘If while you do singing activities and have a hard time tell me’, cheering me on.”(Suhoon)
