Posted: 25 Mar 2012 06:15 AM PDT


Idol group members’ every moves are a hot topic. Especially for girl group idols, their every move from what they eat to what they wear becomes a target for people’s attention. Their most eye catching factor are their slim figures. We compared two idols, Girl‘s Generation‘s leg representative Sooyoung and 2NE1‘s ‘doll legsPark Bom.

Sooyoung is the ‘wanna be star‘ for many ladies today for her slim leg lines. Her legs boast of doll like legs with virtually zero fat. Her tan skin and toned muscles accentuate her healthy looking legs.

Sooyoung showed off her beautiful looks in a recent solo photoshoot. She showed a different side of her than the ones shown on stage. The revealing clothes and her beautiful lines created an alluring charm for the photos.

Meanwhile, 2NE1′s Park Bom is also famous for her ‘mannequin body.’ Her legs are known for their slim lines even when she wears flat shoes. Park Bom recently showed off her slimmer S-line figure and shook the male fans’ hearts. For the ladies, her pictures were enough to motivate them to go on a diet for the upcoming summer.

A recent post on an online community board revealed some pictures from Park Bom’s photo shoot. Park Bom flaunted her doll like figure in a short mini skirt. Netizens especially took note of her toned thighs and calves, as well as her nano ankle that looks as if it can be grabbed with only one hand.

Girl groups need to watch out for SHINee’s Taemin?

Posted: 25 Mar 2012 01:51 AM PDT


Recently a ‘Taemin Warning‘ for idol girl groups has come about, and it’s due to SHINee‘s Taemin being ‘prettier than a girl’.

SHINee officially made their comeback through ‘M! Countdown‘ on the 22nd. The members grabbed fans’ attention with their image transformations.

Taemin received the most interest for his transformation however. The pre-released album jackets showed Taemin with long, straight hair, looking like a mythical beauty. Taemin has long been praised for his ‘prettier than a girl face’, but this new image concept accentuated it even more. His small face, slim figure, and shiny looks are comparable to girl group members.

Netizens commented on Taemin’s comeback image with, “As expected, looks of a girl group“, “Taemin’s looks are better than average girl group members“, “Next to Taemin, the girl group members better be careful not to get embarassed“.

Lee Hyori reveals So Ji Sub donated items for Charity Bazaar

Posted: 24 Mar 2012 08:10 PM PDT

A few days ago, we shared photos of Lee Hyori showing off donated fashion items from several top celebrities.  The items will be included in a special Charity Bazaar Lee Hyori will hold in Cheongdam.  Earlier today she posted photos of donated items once again; this time from actor So Ji Sub!

On March 23rd, the fashion diva posted So Ji Sub’s fashion items onto her Twitter with the caption, “So Ji Sub’s items ~^^”.

Both the denim jeans and formal shows were worn by the superstar actor and contain a price tag along with So Ji Sub’s autograph.  The black enamel dress shoe is priced at 250,000 KRW (~$220USD) while the sand-blasted jeans are worth 150,000 KRW (~$132USD).

The items drew lots of interest for being personal items of a famous actor.  Netizens commented, “This is very heartwarming“, “I wish I could purchase them“, and “I bet these will sell fast“.

The charity will be aired on cable broadcaster OnStyle‘s new 12-week reality program, ’Golden 12‘. ‘Golden 12′ is  aimed at turning the focus away from Lee Hyori’s celebrity activities towards her social activism.

Tory Burch and Vincent D’Elia share their thoughts on working with ‘Fashion King’ cast

Posted: 24 Mar 2012 05:43 PM PDT

Fashion designer Tory Burch and musical actor Vincent D’Elia recently made cameo appearances in SBS‘s new drama, ‘Fashion King‘. The pair took the time to share their thoughts on working directly with Korean stars.

Aside from a one time appearance on the popular American drama, ‘Gossip Girl‘, Tory Burch is known for staying out of excessive spotlight. Surprisingly enough, she’s already made two cameos in ‘Fashion King’ alone, though. She appeared twice as the dean of a fashion design school Shin Se Kyung‘s character attends.

Vinlent D’Elia, who’s known for his playing in popular broadway musicals like ‘Grease‘ and ‘The Little Mermaid’, was right by her side as designer ‘Michael’.

The two expressed, “It was a unique experience. We both had a lot of fun. It was good to be able to connect with the Korean actors through the level of passion they have for their work and art. Upon first impression, the actors seemed like they were reserved and quiet, but after working with them directly for a few days, the ‘big stars of Korea’ are so humble and respectful that you can’t help but feel close to them.”

When asked about the drama, they said, “We weren’t able to read the entire script, but it’s a lot of fun because it shows the fierce competition behind the fashion world, which looks glamorous only on the outside.”
