[News] Girls’ Generation Talk About Their Eating Habits

Posted: 08 Dec 2011 08:22 AM PST

Girls' Generation recently recorded an episode of Mnet's "The Beatles Code" which is set to air on the 8th at 7PM KST. During the show, the MCs, Yoon Jongshin and Yoo Seyoon, asked the girls, "Is it true that the members can all eat without worrying about their weight? Do you really not go on diets?" In response to this, the members replied, "We just eat what we like to eat, and not eat those that we don't want to. We're just like everyone else."

Girls' Generation went on to say, "It's not that we don't gain any weight no matter how much we eat, but Sooyoung and Yoona are the exceptions. They don't seem to gain any weight at all despite eating so much. Especially Yoona, she doesn't even get bloated!" After Girls' Generation revealed this, the whole studio burst into laughter.

The questions continued and Girls' Generation was asked who loved Korean food the most. Once again, Yoona was brought up as the eight girls all chose her. They said, "Sooyoung and Yoona love to eat Korean food. However, Yoona is a big eater and she especially likes it when there is a wide variety of side dishes."

During the episode, the girls also opened up about times when they were jealous of each other. Taeyeon admitted that during "We Got Married", she was jealous of Seohyun. She elaborated on this by saying, "The both of us starred in 'We Got Married', but we ended up with completely different guys. It's difficult to be casted in the same variety show with friends your age, and for that, I was jealous of Seohyun." This was in reference to the fact that Seohyun was "married" to CNBLUE's Jung Yonghwa, and Taeyeon to comedian, Jung Hyungdon.

Yuri and Sooyoung also revealed a "behind story" which will be further revealed during the broadcast.

[TRANS] Famous Thai actor Oh Anuchyd unpackages "Republic of 2PM" albums

Posted: 08 Dec 2011 06:22 AM PST

Overall Summary:

This is his first time doing an unpackaging of the 2 sets of the "Republic of 2PM." Set A costs 4,980 yen and set B costs 4,200 yen. He bought it for a total of 4,000 baht (about $130 US dollar) from a friend.
"It was just released in Japan 2 days ago, but it's already in my hands. You guys jealous?"

1:44 Going over set A, there a total of 12 songs with lots of new and old remade songs into Japanese, along with a DVD "First Contact in Japan," a documentary, and a concert. He shows the cover and says that Junho has a sharp face and is very handsome.

3:02 There is a photobook that says "Confidential Files: 2PM First Contact in Japan in Ryogoku Kokugikan," looks like its own country "Limited edition 2011." He says that the photobook looks really good, and includes pictures from a concert. Nichkhun has a different hairstyle. Taecyeon looks more handsome with his hairband. Then he says that Nichkhun is VERY VERY handsome in this picture (and shows it to us). Taecyeon and Junho look good in this picture. Then he's like "hey! There are no pictures of Wooyoung!" and then finds one. Then he says that he can't ever remember this person's name (and holds up Chansung's picture and accidentally calls him Junsu), but he knows that he's the maknae. [aww] Then he shows a picture of Junsu, and then calls Taecyeon "meow meow." [LOL]

5:45 Then he opens and says that the CD is very pretty. He says that we probably have seen most of the pictures already. Then he calls Wooyoung "Udong" (which is what a lot of Thai Hottests call him).

Opening up set B

He attempts to do it in English because he knows that 2PM has a lot of international fans, but then fails and goes back to Thai. [LOL]
1:35 He says that personally, he likes the cover of set B more. It's cheaper too. Set B differs in the DVD. The DVD has "Making of Republic of 2PM" and various music videos. The DVD is 34 minutes long. He says that Junho's face is still as sharp on this cover. Then he apologizes for forgetting Chansung's name last time.

3:27 There's a "Confidential Introduction Republic of 2PM." He shows the special ID sheet that allows you to go to the 2pm japan website. His favorite song is track 10, he can't read the name in Japanese, but he likes it cus it's fun.

3:50 He starts to open the photobook, and says that it's different pictures and says that these pictures are better. The Set B photobook has pictures are album concept photos as "Republic of 2PM" (whereas the photobook from Set A were pictures from their concert). He personally recommends Set B based on the photobook, but he hasn't watched the DVD yet.

7:10 He starts to show pictures. He says Nichkhun walking down stairs, Wooyoung staring off at someone, Junsu's lonely eyes, Junho who looks like Junsu in this picture, and Chansung who he remembers now, and Taecyeon. Then he shows a picture of Khun & Wooyoung and says that we will like it [LOL he knows OTP pairings too haha]

T/N: hopefully this gives you guys a closer look of the album itself, in case you're still deciding which set you want to buy! Plus, I was excited to see that a famous Thai actor like him is a Hottest too!

[News] Changmin Writes Recommendation For SHINee’s “Children Of The Sun” Photobook

Posted: 08 Dec 2011 06:11 AM PST

Although going to other countries to sing is a happy thing, but to be able to go to a city and enjoy it thoroughly is an even happier matter. Having such a holiday, and bringing back stories is moving, and leaves a lasting impression despite not being there myself.

Opening their hearts and embracing the culture presented before them, and looking at their expressions of true enjoyment makes one think that this vacation is definitely one that will stay in their memories for a long time. Just by looking at these memories of theirs makes me blessed.
