Super Junior‘s Leeteuk appeared as a guest on the “soul food” segment of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Story Show Do Dream‘ on July 7th.

Leeteuk revealed that he had a connection to announcer Son Mina during the show. He revealed, “‘Challenge Golden Bell‘, which was very popular during my high school days, came to my school to film. Son Mina was a goddess.”

After watching the filming for a while, he asked for an autograph: “Son Mina kindly signed an autograph for me and asked, ‘What’s your dream?’ I then answered, ‘I want to be an announcer’.”

IU admits she found it hard to get close to T-ara’s Jiyeon at first on ‘Star Life Theater’

Posted: 07 Jul 2012 05:05 AM PDT

IU revealed her honest opinion on her first impression of T-ara‘s Jiyeon on the recent filming of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Star Life Theater‘ featuring T-ara.

The two were both born in 1993, but they only greeted each other briefly backstage at music programs until they met in 2010 on the SBS program ‘Heroes‘ and got to know one another. The T-ara members returned to their homes for a period of six months after their previous promotions, and IU was invited to Jiyeon’s place.

IU commented, “I thought [Jiyeon's] room would be filled with pink princess clothes and accessories, but it’s actually pretty plain. It was hard to be friendly with Jiyeon at first because she has the impression of a cold, city woman.”

When IU saw Jiyeon preparing a snack, she remarked, “Please don’t cook. Jiyeon is good at dancing, acting, and a lot of other things, but she’s not a very good cook. I think she’s worse than I am.”

She then added, “When I was first invited to her house, she said she would make me samgyetang, but I talked her out of it.”

‘Star Life Theater’ will air their special T-ara feature from July 9th to the 13th at 8:20PM KST. Watch the preview below!

She went on, “During our recent break, the members and I went to the Alps via airplane for the first time, it was a truly new experience. To be honest, I have a fear of flying so I can’t ride on a plane for long.”
