On the 1st of January, Leader of 2NE1 uploaded a selca on her "Instagram" earning laughs from fans.
In the picture, member CL holds a wine bottle with a glass while Park Bom, Minzy and Dara pose cutely with Lee Hi who was holding a pack of milk in the waiting room backstage at MBC Gayo Daejun Year End Festival.
The picture attracted lots of attention as the older "unnies" are set to party while baby Lee Hi has to drink her milk since she's not legal yet for alcohol. While 2NE1 poses with wine and Lee Hi with milk, fans couldn't help but laugh at this enormous cute group picture.
Netizens commented with "The members are so cute and Lee Hi is adorable" "Aw the baby of YG has to drink her milk" "Lee Hi's pose is kinda stiff but its so cute" "YG Family members sure know how to party" "I bet they had a blast" "They look so good!" "The stage was perfect" and more showing a variety of reactions.

Brown Eyed Girls' sexpot, Narsha, is always happy to help out her bandmates. She introduced Ga-In to the joys of girl-on-girl kissing, joined Miryo on Music Bank when the rapper's hit, "Dirty," was deemed unsuitable for broadcast, and just this weekend, she helped JeA with a duet performance on Immortal Song 2. In case you didn't know, Immortal Song is like American Idol or The Voice, but for established K-pop stars instead of hopeful wannabes. JeA is a contestant on the current season, and called up Narsha to try and help her win with a special mash-up performance of Uhm Jung-hwa's classic, "On the Count of 3," and BEG's own smash, "Abracadabra."
As expected, JeA and Narsha's vocals were no joke. The two K-divas absolutely powered through the song without fault, living up to their title as one of Korea's premiere vocal groups. The male contestants backstage cheered excitedly when Narsha stepped out to start performing the "Abracadabra" hip dance choreography, while Uhm Jung-hwa herself watched the entire performance from the front row, smiling and swaying to the music.
We know that the Brown Eyed Girls are currently in the midst of solo promotions, but seeing this really makes us want a group comeback from the foursome this year.
JeA's long-awaited solo album, Just JeA, finally dropped a few days ago, making her the last Brown Eyed Girl to go solo. The album's lead single, "While You Were Asleep," is a beautiful power ballad bursting with dramatic production changes and heart-wrenching lyrics about unrequited love. It's definitely a more unique approach to your standard K-pop ballad, which really comes as no surprise since BEG is known for always stepping outside the box.
So far, Just JeA is off to a smashing start. Buzz single, "Let's Hug," topped digital charts shortly after its release and is still in the top 10 of the instiz iChart, while "While You Were Asleep" is currently performing solidly, sitting comfortably in the top fifteen.
Check out JeA's latest, below.

Seo In Guk let viewers in on the process behind his famous kiss with A Pink's Eunji on their hit drama, 'Reply 1997'.
"When we had to kiss for the first time on camera, it was fake," the actor explained on his appearance on the latest episode of tvN's 'Taxi'. "I kissed the spot next to her lips, but the director told me to do it for real."
"Another time when were were filming a kiss scene, the director told me, 'In Guk, you're so dirty'. He explained that since my upper lips were a bit more forward, they always seemed to be prepared for kissing." he continued.
The producer in question, Shin Won Ho, related, "I was sure that I was filming a love scene, but it sounded more like a lust scene when I listened to the audio."
"After the kiss scene, 'Seo In Guk Eun Ji tongue' became a trending topic on portal sites," the actor said. "That was really frustrating. We didn't use tongue."

Ceci: What makes you feel best when it comes to describing your name?
Jonghyun: Firmly, as ever, the man who is playing the guitar and singing on the left. Lee JongHyun of CNBLUE. This is my favorite phrase to describe me.
Ceci: You've covered most of Asia and then last September you held <CNBLUE LIVE IN LONDON> in the United Kingdom. London is the mother land of rock that you've always wanted to visit and also the hometown of The Beatles.
Jonghyun: I was proud and happy because that stage was what I was dreaming for. Fans are always the same anywhere, but for that one time, their hair colors are different from that of Asian fans. That gave me quite a different feeling, seeing fans with blonde hairs dancing and giving great cheers to us. It's just like watching foreign music video on television while standing on the stage. I kept on watching outside of the window at the hotel because it was wonderful to visit London for that performance. I walked here and there for half a day and took lots of photos.
Ceci: You've finished the concert beautifully, and also successfully finished a drama.
Jonghyun: I am happy because I had a good result for my first start, but to consider it to be that successful, that's too absurd I think. I had just started and I still have a long way to go. I will try to go to the end for as long as I can. Of course, the foundation is CNBLUE. I could be an actor because I am the member of CNBLUE.
Ceci: Is there any specific role for you want to try as an actor?
Jonghyun: If I get the chance, I want to play a character like Ha JungWoo sunbaenim in the movie "Nameless Gangster" . Also, Kim NamGil sunbaenim in the drama "Bad Man" was really attractive. Those who have watched them must have fell for their manliness. In Gyeongsang Province dialect, it is called as "꾸리한" [kku:ri:ha:n] or "까리한" [kka:ri:ha:n]. It would be interesting if there's really such "kkarihan" character in real life.
T/N: "까리한" [kka:ri:ha:n] would simply mean, a manly man. A man full of masculinity. JH mentioned about this in Radio Star. ^^
Ceci:We heard that your role model is Jang DongGun.
Jonghyun: He is not only in great in acting but also has a wonderful personality in real life. Even with just a word, I could feel his warmth. When I was filming 'A Gentleman's Dignity', Jang DongGun sunbaenim said "you're doing a great job"to me. Even though at that time I was not doing well, I could do much better because of him. It was a magical sentence. I was happy and that made me smile. I want to be a nice senior just like Jang DongGun sunbaenim.
Ceci: What is "extreme" manliness to you?
Jonghyun: Simple honesty. The word itself is just like a man. I'm 100% honest. That means, I'm an extremely manly guy. (laugh)
Ceci: Which is why you've got yourself titles like 24-year-old manly man, musician's popularity, and even a rising star in acting. The dramatic year has passed by. You have accomplished many things, but is there anything you think you're missing being in you 20s?
Jonghyun: I do my best all the time, but as always regret follows too. That's only natural. Anyway, I'm a simple guy, so even though when I get angry or feel regret, I can forget it easily. Fortunately, that's just who I am and I'm comfortable with that.
Ceci: Maybe you should date. What kind of a woman that would shake your reason?
Jonghyun: Jeon JiHyun, Son YeJin, Park ShiYeon. They are the ideal types in my life. To find the something common between them may be… they are pure, innocent and sexy?
Ceci: What kind of woman is sexy for you?
Jonghyun: Like the lyrics in PSY sunbaenim's song, a girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes.
Ceci:Let's pick 3 of your 3 attractions to appeal as the boyfriend to a fun girl who knows how to play.
Jonghyun: I am reliable man, and have good manner. What's more, I intend to sing a song every day for my girl.
Ceci: Looks like you know the charm of the guy who can sing.
Jonghyun: Well, that's just the basic of a man.
Ceci: What are the best songs that are good to hear with a girl or those that you wanna sing for her?
1 'P.D.A' by John Legend. Contrary to the beautiful mood of the song, the lyrics are very sexy.
2 'Belief' by John Mayer. This song may be good to hear when having a cup of coffee together.
3 'Love Without U' by Robin Thicke. I like the mood of that song.
Ceci: I heard you're close JongHyun of SHINee, who is the same age as you.
Jonghyun: No, I'm not familiar with him. Where did you hear that? (He got serious for short time) Haha! Actually we are close. JongHyun is a friend who is always bright and funny. When I was rookie, I was worn out due to many things, and he approached me and comforted me, so we became friends. I often hear that I'm older than my age, but when I meet JongHyun, I feel like I'm back again to my real age, so I feel good.
Ceci: Why do people say that you're older than your real age?
Jonghyun: I never hear that from close fellows, but when I meet new people for the first time, I often hear like 'you're like already in your 30s.' I think maybe because I'm usually calm. But that doesn't mean that I'm shy with strangers or pretentious. I don't know, you think so? Did I change while working?
Ceci: We met you for the first time and now we are doing this interview. To me you're in the early twenties but, I can feel that you are relaxed just like a full grown-up man. It's weird.
Jonghyun: Is that so? (laugh)
Ceci: So you got deceived by SHINee JongHyun, instead of Diablo game CD he gave you a snack. Your response was funny, according to his twitter. So, it's time for revenge. How about revealing one of his secrets?
Jonghyun: What a bad guy… ! But I won't do cheap thing. I will protect him because he is also a good guy.
Ceci: SHINee JongHyun, TEENTOP JongHyun, actor and model JongHyun, NU'EST JongHyun. There are many JongHyuns in our entertainment industry. Let's see why you're the best among them.
1 I can sing and play guitar.
2 I am the whitest/fairest.
3 I am CNBLUE.
Ceci: This is the first cover interview to mark the start of 2013, and today's topic is 'CNBLUE's New Year Party'. If you are the host, then where, what and how would you want to hold the party?
Jonghyun: I will eat meat until my tummy bursts. If someone will buy for me, I will draw circle on the sirloin part of the beef.
T/N: "Draw a circle" means he will take the sirloin, which is the best and expensive part of the meat. and his favorite.
Ceci: I wonder how your new year will be with the members.
Jonghyun: On new year, we get vacations every year. Last year, we went snowboarding and it was exciting. We promised to go together every year, so I guess this year we will also be in the snow park. YongHwa hyung is the best surfer. JungShin is a slow learner. His development speed is… terrible. MinHyuk is the best in ball games, and I'm the best when it comes to using strength. Instead, Jungshin is very good at making gags using his body.
Ceci: Let's check out three things you want to surely ans speedily achieve this year. Saying your goal over and over helps you to reach it more easily.
1 I am really happy now, so I hope this time keeps on going!
2 Going strong without any mishaps!
3 Let's make more good music!
Ceci: Please tell Minhyuk who is next to you, the words of blessing for the new year.
Jonghyun: I trust you all the time, so I never doubt you will do well. My awesome brother, please keep on growing well like now. Ps. Live your life cheerfully.
Ceci: Last, we will make a 'TIP or Manual Instruction of Lee JongHyun' to get to know you better. Please fill in the blank properly.
Jonghyun: "I live to eat. If I miss meal time, I'm quite upset and my voice becomes bigger, so if you give me meal in the right time, there will be no problem. If you think I look anxious, put me to sleep. I can even run well after charging. In conclusion, I'm very easy to handle."

<Catch Me If You Can> (referred to as <Catch Me>) has decided on a total of 6 "Franks" with the original members Uhm Kijoon, Park Kwanghyun, Kyuhyun, Key, and two new members Dongwoon and Dongjun. The multi-casting was formed through a certain procedure, but the effort did not bring a good result. Therefore, there is something musical producers and actors must always remember. It is the simple question, "Are you skilled enough to stand on stage?"
The movie of the same name <Catch Me> showed Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks chasing each other. In the same way, the musical <Catch Me> shows Frank changing from a pilot, detective, and doctor as situation calls for. In other words, the musical moves with Frank as the center, and it is rare for a musical to have every act centered around the main character. One can call this a musical that is for, by, and of Frank. SHINee's Key, who has been actively expressing himself not only through song and dance, but also fashion and art, expressed Frank's nonchalant attitude the best even though it was his musical debut. He performs comedy with mischievous facial expressions and boldness, and doesn't get timid on stage. When an adult magazine model he respected showed up in front of him, he pretended to get a nose bleed. When he heard the story of the mouse that fell in the milk bottle for the 101st time, he imitated his father's lips. As such, even though he did not have lines, he knew how to show the situation in detail. His excellent observation led to various reactions, and this put life into the others' acting and made the musical richer. In musical acting technique, he is lacking because of his short breath, unclear pronunciation, and bad tempo control. However, his stage presence with his instinct to have the audience focus on him was enough to cover his faults. The reason why his Frank is anticipated is because he judged himself as being too stuffy when he joined the rerun of the musical.
Those with little acting or musical experience tend to be good at things they have been good at. If SHINee's Key showed off an unexpected result in building the character, Super Junior's Kyuhyun's strong point is definitely his singing. He is the vocalist in the group, but his voice is so soft that he enjoys singing Sung Sikyung and Kim Dongryul's ballads that weave emotion and a romantic feeling surges from him. Kyuhyun's real value can be seen when Frank sings "Someone Else's Skin" to express his loneliness, and when he sings "Seven Wonders" when he falls in love. However, Kyuhyun is part of a group that works together rather than stand out individually. For Kyuhyun, he seems better suited for a musical that works in synergy with other members instead of a one-top musical such as <Catch Me>.
