►►T-ara’s Soyeon caught swine flu!?

The curse of 2009 came back? 😦

T-ara’s Soyeon showed signs of swine flu so she stopped filming on the set of God of Study and headed for the hospital.

The members of T-ara are set to make another cameo on the drama where one of the members, Jiyeon, has a role.

T-ara’s company said, “Soyeon, with T-ara, headed to the set of God of Study to film their cameo appearance. But then, Soyeon got a high fever and threw up on set. We stopped filming for her and took her to a nearby hospital. The hospital thought she might have swine flu so they gave her medicine and tested her. The results will be out on the morning of the 29th. After finding out about Soyeon’s status, we will decide T-ara’s “Like the First Time” promotion schedule.”

Let’s hope it’s not swine flu.

Super Junior’s Leeteuk and Heechul will be hosting Inkigayo this coming Sunday on the 31st.

The two have been chosen to be the MCs for the Vancouver Olympics Inkigayo special.

The original MCs right now are 2PM’s Wooyoung and Taecyeon but they will hand over their spots for this episode.

I do feel that Wooyoung and Taecyeon can get a little awkward while hosting the show, so I’m happy to see these experienced boys take over. If they’re switching around the MC’s, I’m sure there are some special stages we can look forward to as well.
