Posted: 19 Mar 2012 01:45 AM PDT


MBLAQ‘s Thunder revealed his fear of Seungho in a recent episode of jTBC‘s ‘Park Kyung Lim's Oh Happy Day', that focused on the boys’ trainee and debut days.

Thunder confessed he was afraid of Seungho to the extent that he wanted to give up being a MBLAQ member.

Thunder was the last member to join MBLAQ as he came to Korea from the Philippines where he was living with his family. He told of his hardships as he stated, “Korea and the Korean culture were still very unfamiliar when I joined MBLAQ.”

When asked which member bothered him the most, Thunder chose Seungho without hesitation. Thunder stated, “As I didn’t know of any older brother-younger brother differences in the Philippines, Seungho took the age difference strictly and used military discipline. Using the hyung position, he took my training uniform from the first practice day.”

Lee Joon further explained, “Thunder was really afraid of Seungho hyung. That’s why every dawn he called me into the convenience store and complained that he couldn’t take it anymore.”

To these complaints, Seungho gave an unexpected retaliation, making the studio laugh.

Check out what Seungho’s reply is in the March 19th episode of ‘Park Kyung Lim’s Oh! Happy Day’.

Posted: 19 Mar 2012 01:42 AM PDT


Big Bang shared more than they opted for on the recent episode of SBS‘s ‘You & I‘ and shared more than they opted for.

On this episode, the producers revealed a bunch of pictures of Big Bang that even their fans try to keep hidden.

The first picture showed the members on stage with their head tilted for a dance move. Daesung must have been really into the dance move because his face looks really intense.

The second forbidden picture was of G-Dragon biting on ice-cream. Unfortunately for him, the camera angle showed the inside of his very clean nose. Big Bang shared that the picture created a rumor of “nose hair removal” amongst the fans.

The next picture was of Seungri and his dark circles. When the pictures were shown, everyone in the room burst out in laughter.



When the pictures were revealed, Big Bang members seemed embarrassed but smiled as they said, “Now it’s funny for us too.” Besides the ones featured on ‘You & I’, there are apparently enough forbidden pictures floating around online to create a related search of “Big Bang 3 top forbidden pictures.”
