6 member idol group 'TEEN TOP' has emerged as the new athletic idols
With the 2010 Chuseok special as the start, at the 4th MBC 'Idol Star Athletics Swimming Competition (ISASC) TEEN TOP swept both 1st and 2nd positions at the men's high jump event, attracting the attention of the fans.
Before the start of the competition, Ricky (real name Yoo Changhyun, 16) was one of the likely candidates to win the high jump event. From before Ricky has displayed outstanding athletic skills, hence he was able to reach the finals. Although it had seemed like Ricky was going to win the high jump event but in this competition, he had to give the winning spot to team member Niel who has risen as an 'athletic idol'
After ISASC, Donga.com sat down with TEEN TOP and carried out an idol group like interview revealing their after thoughts.
"A lot of people have expected me to win 1st place so it was a pity that I couldn't. I was one of the likely winning candidates at the high jump event, but I lost to Niel hyung. Even I really thought that I was going to win 1st place… After the competition ended, because of my competitive streak I couldn't calm myself down but I'm feeling better now. Next time when we have to do high jump again, I can lose to anyone else but I definitely must Niel hyung. Still I'm very happy that TEEN TOP was able to win both 1st and 2nd places." (Ricky)
"I'm really happy that I won. Andy hyung who is from the same company as us, said that he would grant us a wish if we came in top 2 in any event. Although a win is very important, I'm looking forward to the wish more. Through this competition it was the first time I've seen the TEEN TOP members so happy. I really want to see our even happier faces when we win 1st place on music programmes. (Niel)"
Chunji and Changjo shared "We didn't practise specifically for it but as all our members like sports originally, we thought that maybe if we tried hard enough we'll achieve good results. Ricky has always had good jump power so we were really looking forward to the high jump event.
Although we made finals for swimming and sprints, it was a pity that we were not within the ranks"
Andy promised the members that he would grant them a wish if they achieved outstanding results at high jump; the members all wished for massages on a regular basis. Seemingly unmatching for their young age, the reason why they wanted massages was because they liked it.
On the other hand, TEEN TOP has been carrying out exciting activities for their title track 'Crazy' from their 2nd mini album which was released on the 5th.

Girl's Day Yura grabbed the win at the "Idol Alkkagi Championship."
In the show 'Idol Star Alkkagi Championship,' which was aired on the 22th, a total of 26 teams of idols participated to play competitive alkkagi matches.
Today in the show, idols started to take their matches seriously from the preliminary rounds, and in the end Girl's Day's Yura and Teen Top's Niel made it to the finals. Niel was called "Messi of the Alkkagi World" for the superior skills he showed in the early matches, so the audience predicted that Niel would win.
But Yura, contrary to people's expectations, got to show off her hidden alkkagi skills and beat Niel into a cocked hat. With the score of 9 to 0, Yura won the match to conclude the championship.
Niel said after losing the match, showing disappointment, "I guess I spent too much energy on the previous matches," and Yura shared her impression on her win, "I didn't expect to win the 1st place, but I'm so happy with the win. I'll practice my alkkagi skills more in the future. I'd like to credit this glory to the CEO of our agency."
Meanwhile, netizens expressed various reaction about Yura who won the championship saying: "She sure is good at it," "Niel must have been puzzled," "Her alkkagi skills are no joke," and so on.

The group Girl's Day's Sojin revealed her deep inner thoughts.
In the show KBS 'Crown Princess Project – Revival of the Royal Family,' which aired on January 23rd, Girl's Day Sojin revealed her deep thoughts and drew viewers' attention.
In the show, the Ah-Na-So team members, IU, Narsha from Brown Eyed Girls and Sojin from Girl's Day, were asked to answer these three questions; 'the most highest hill,' 'the deepest thing,' 'favorite flower,' which were the actual questions that Yeongjo of Joseon asked to handpick his crown princess.
For those questions, Sojin answered, saying that parents are the most highest hill, "Their wisdom and love is the most highest hill that one is unable to get over." As to answer the question 'the deepest thing,' she explained, "I think it's a scar. Once a scar is made, it really cannot be healed, so you should be careful not to hurt anyone."
And then she answered 'small-flowered chrysanthemum' for the question 'favorite flower,' revealing her deep inner thought, "It's small and the most common flower you can see in Autumn, but it's the most remembered flower when Autumn comes.
Meanwhile in this show, IU, who answered 'barley hump', that Empress Jung-soon also answered back then for the question 'the most highest hill,' was handpicked to become the crown princess.
