HaHa and Byul take wedding pictures that suit their image

Posted: 27 Oct 2012 07:30 AM PDT

The HaHa-Byul couple has taken wedding photos!

Instead of  everyday wedding photos, HaHa and Byul decided to go for a more comical theme featuring HaHa’s highly popular ‘Hybrid’ character from ‘Infinity Challenge‘. In one photo, Byul is standing prettily in a frame surrounded by sky blue walls, while HaHa himself stands close to the camera making a goofy expression. His friends, all covering their face in the ‘Hybrid’ style are wearing the same clothes as he is, giving the impression that there were many HaHas.

The second photo looks more traditional at first glance. However, HaHa and Byul are making goofy faces at the camera, and the guests standing around them are holding up HaHa’s picture up to their face.

Fans commented, “I see Yoo Jae Suk next to Byul in the second photo!“, “Are the ‘Running Man‘ and ‘Infinity Challenge’ members there?“, and “This is really cute and unique“.

HaHa and Byul have registered their marriage and will be holding their wedding ceremony on November 30 KST.

Mr. Pizza has revealed commercials featuring 2PM‘s Taecyeon and Wooyoung!

The boys of 2PM became the pizza brand’s official endorsement models late last year. The two CFs center around the less-than-ideal experiences of a girl, who comforts herself with a warm slice of Mr. Pizza.

The CF featuring Wooyoung reads: “Training clothes”, ”Former boyfriend”, “A girl younger than I am”, and finally the brand’s catchphrase- “When you need Mister’s comfort”. It was his fellow member’s CF that received the most attention, however.

Taecyeon’s CF reads: “Blind date”, “[Unattractive guy] (literal: bomb)“, “Unexpected result”, “I’ll leave first”, “When you need Mister’s comfort”.

What caught the attention of viewers was the beastly idol’s styling in the commercial. In defense, Taecyeon tweeted on the 27th, “I was just following [So Ji Sub's] style. Kekeke… Transformed into a [bomb man],” and shared the photo above.

Seeing his tweet, MBLAQ‘s G.O. responded, “Oh, Taecyeon,” while 2PM‘s Chansung commented, “Taecyeon hyung… Is this the reality of your TOEIC scores.”

Check out the CFs below!
