Posted: 04 Mar 2012 07:27 AM PST

Earlier, we reported that cosmetics brand Etude House picked up two of Korea’s biggest superstars to help endorse their products this year. After releasing numerous teasers and photo shoots with SHINee and 2NE1‘s Sandara Park, Etude revealed Part 1 of their “Kiss Note” featuring Jonghyun, Part 2 featuring Key, and now Part 3 has been released.

Part 3 is titled, ‘The story of Orange color lips is falling in Exciting Love‘. In the video, Sandara Park’s latest ‘Kiss Note’ target turns out to be none other than the coffee barista and SHINee maknae Taemin. Like in Parts 1 and 2, Sandara daydreams then writes Taemin’s name in her notebook with a coral lipstick. She eagerly awaits as he walks over, but as the poor barista leans in for the smooch, an interruption presents a hilarious twist to this episode.

Check out the video below!

Poor Taemin! Would you prefer Sandara pairing up with Taemin or Minho? Let us know in the comments section below!

MBLAQ’s Thunder apologizes for messing up Wonder Girls’ “Be My Baby” dance

Posted: 04 Mar 2012 05:41 AM PST

 

MBLAQ‘s Thunder apologized to the audience for messing up the dance to the Wonder Girls‘ hit song, “Be My Baby“.

On the March 4th broadcast of SBS TV’s ‘1000 Song Challenge,’ rhythmic gymnast Shin Soo Ji paired up with model/actress Lee Sun Jin to sing the Wonder Girls’ “Be My Baby”.

After the two ladies finished the song, MC Lee Hwi Jae suddenly said, “Hold on a second. I saw something,” and pulled MBLAQ’s Thunder on stage.  Lee Hwi Jae then said that Thunder’s dance looked weird, and asked him to do it again. Thunder obliged, and danced to “Be My Baby” with a confused look on his face.

What happened was that Thunder messed up the part where the girls make a round shape with their hands and sweep it across the side of their bodies, near their hips. Instead of sweeping his hands in a circular motion to the side of his body, Thunder gathered his hands in front of his body. When the guests started laughing, Thunder looked even more confused as he asked, “Isn’t this how the dance goes?”

When all the guests commented that his version of the dance was weird, Thunder eventually apologized to the audience for messing up the dance. MC Lee Hwi Jae wrapped up the situation by defending him, saying, “Just because he’s and idol doesn’t mean he’s good at all dances“.

Isn’t Thunder adorable?

Jay Park’s first solo concert ‘NEW BREED’ is a success

Posted: 04 Mar 2012 01:20 AM PST

Jay Park spent a ‘hot’ night with 5,000 fans on his first concert.

On March 3rd, Jay Park successfully finished his first-ever solo concert, 'NEW BREED', at the Olympic Stadium Hall. With various performances and fan services, the entire audience was awed by his talent and stage-presence. The concert started as Jay came down the stage in a slick-black suit and singing his hit songs “Demon“, “Abandoned“, “Level 1000” to a live band. Before singing “Count on Me (Nothing on You)“, Jay greeted his fans and made some witty remarks. He said, “I really prepared a lot for today. I hope all of you enjoy this concert. The next song is the one that got a lot of attention for singing it in the bathroom. If you know which one I'm talking about sing along with me!

After hyping up the crowd, Jay Park brought a smooth and sweet atmosphere by performing “Star“, “Girl Friend“, and “Can’t Live Without You“. Furthermore, Jay proved the ‘artist’ side of him by performing various hits from KBS’s ‘Immortal Song 2‘, such as Kim Soo Hee‘s “Aemo (Affection)” and the Zoo‘s “I Will Love You“.

Later during the night, he changed into a red suit to perform “Come Play” and “Don’t Let Go“, where he did a sexy couple-dance with a female dancer. He was able to heat up the stage and brought many fans to jealousy as he also did a surprise performance for one special guest. There was also a battle-show between the AOM Crew and 1illionaie, while Dynamic Duo also made an appearance as a surprise guest to amplify the excitement. Dynamic Duo has been keeping in contact with Jay after they worked together on an album and were able to perform at the concert despite their busy schedule.

Jay Park also prepared a lot of surprises for his fans – he dressed up as Lady GaGa with complete make-up, costume, and a wig! With his back dancers, Jay GaGa entertained the audience with a shocking performance of “Poker Face“.

As the concert started to reach its final performances, Jay Park brought laughter to the crowd as he performed his song “Wasted” while acting ‘wasted’. Also during a corner called ‘Drunken Truth’, Jay read a touching letter about how thankful he was for his fans. He read, “Thank you for always being there for me and also for loving me. I even tried to become drunk so I could have the courage to express my true feelings to you. But I still couldn’t do so. However, today I really want to take this time to tell you… that I love you!“.

In related news, besides successfully ending his first solo concert, he has been topping the charts with his first album release. It seems that this concert must have meant a lot for both Jay and for JayWalkers, as Jay has been going through a lot of controversial issues and a hard time being accepted back to the K-Pop industry. But this successful concert certainly proved his rising popularity and his never-ending passion to become a true ‘artist’.
