Yoo Jae Suk can’t stand conversations regarding large sums of money

Posted: 10 Jun 2012 07:14 AM PDT

Due to the situation last week regarding ‘IU‘s car’, Yoo Jae Suk recently expressed his dislike for conversations pertaining to money.

The latest episode of ‘Running Man‘ consisted of the cast members on a school trip which eventually turned into a zombie race.

As the seven ‘Running Man’ members were being transported to their next designated location, the topic regarding Yoo Jae Suk possibly having to buy IU a brand new car as a late birthday present was brought up, once again.

HaHa, who acted as the show’s resident rich kid for the episode, suddenly asked, “Sorry, but is the fee for this school trip 10 million won (~$8520 USD)?

Upon hearing his money-related question, Yoo Jae Suk confessed, “Thanks to HaHa’s remark last week, I may have to buy IU a brand new car. This is why I can’t stand money related conversations. After what happened last week, I can’t seem to look at IU straight in the eyes anymore,” causing the other members to burst in laughter.

But despite his statement, HaHa continued on with his ‘rich kid’ concept. “I planned on going to England to play soccer with Ji Sung!

Aside from HaHa with his ‘rich kid’ image, the other ‘Running Man’ members also had their own unique student concept.

Lee Kwang Soo was the ‘student who claims himself to be the school’s best’, Kim Jong Kook was ‘Running Man’s top student’, Gary was the ‘work-study student’, Ji Suk Jin had the concept of being a ‘game addict’, Yoo Jae Suk as the ‘dance king’, and Song Ji Hyo had the concept ‘Running Man’s uljjang’, a term literally meaning ‘best face’.

Who wore it better: Girls’ Generation’s Jessica or Shin Se Kyung?

Posted: 10 Jun 2012 03:14 AM PDT

Netizens have been pointing out that Girls’ Generation’s Jessica and actress Shin Se Kyung wore a similar dress.

On June 7th, Girls’ Generation made an appearance at the ‘10 Corso Como‘ collaboration launching party by global perfume brand ‘GiRL‘. During the event, Jessica’s dress garnered interest from fans as the unique dress exposed her abs. A similar fashion was worn by Shin Se Kyung in March when the actress attended the conference for her drama ‘Fashion King‘.

In terms of exposure, Shin Se Kyung’s dress was slightly more revealing than Jessica’s. Not only did the actress expose more of her waist, but also revealed her sexy back. Either way, both ladies rocked the dress and looked fantastic, but we have to ask…

Who do you think wore it better?

Heo Young Saeng tells ‘No Cut News’ what it’s like as a soloist without SS501

Posted: 09 Jun 2012 09:20 PM PDT

SS501‘s Heo Young Saeng recently sat down with ‘No Cut News‘ for an interview discussing not only his “Crying” comeback, but his efforts to make his mark as a soloist after having already reached the top with SS501.

Heo Young Saeng began, “SS501′s music style was completely different to the style that I had wanted so it wasn’t as difficult as I thought to shed the group colors out of my music. Although it’s my second album now, I tried to put out music that I personally wanted.”

He participated in the album’s overall production starting from the planning to the final concepts. Not only did he personally collect each song included in the album, but was also involved with the production and lyric writing process as well. Although he wanted to go with “Intimidated” as his title track, he ended up picking the medium pop R&B track “Crying”.

“I deliberated over the two for a long while, but I just chose ‘Crying’ as the title track because I liked the melody. I think my one year long hiatus played a large part because my last album was melody-centered and I felt that the change would be too big if I came out with such transformation with ‘Intimidated’ the following year. I tried not to be stubborn with it since a lot of people said they liked ‘Crying’ better as well (laughter).”

As he felt that he could’ve improved the performance aspect of his promotions last time, he focused on just that with “Crying”, jumping and shouting right along with the crowd.

On the prospect of a concert, he continued, “When I was promoting with SS501, I stood before a larger crowd on a larger stage. Now that I know that the numbers have decreased, I can’t just go ahead and plan one. I also don’t have much solo tracks yet (laughter). I want to release more albums and build myself up more.”

Concluding the interview, he stated, “Someone told me that if you’re not able to come out from the past, you’ll never be able to stand on your own. That you need to throw away your previous feelings and start over as if you’re making a new start. Fortunately, I was able to let go of all of that quickly. Although there are disappointing aspects, I feel more satisfied with having my opinions reflected in my music. I won’t focus on the past and instead fulfill myself.”

The addition of miss A‘s Suzy to the new KBS drama ‘Big‘ has aroused the curiosity of viewers.  They are interested in what changes her relationship to Gong Yoo and Lee Min Jung will bring to the plot.

Suzy will make her first appearance in the third episode, broadcast on June 11th, as ‘Jang Mari’, the first love of ‘Kang Kyung Joon’.

Unable to tell her that he is the real ‘Kang Kyung Joon’, he ignores her introduction as  his wife-to-be and tries to come up with a plan to make her return to the States.

The filming of the scene took place at a high school in Jongro. Staff were more than satisfied with the way Suzy was able to bring to life her character’s unique, four-dimensional personality.
