Posted: 24 Feb 2013 08:04 AM PST

On the 23rd, KBS 2TV‘s ‘Entertainment Relay‘ interviewed Son Dam Bi and After School in the midst of their photo shoot for ‘Mixxo.

During this episode, member Lizzy dished about boys, honestly revealing that there was a time when a lot of male celebrities would approach her. “In 2010 there was [something like that]. When I first debuted, when I didn’t speak much [in variety shows], and when I didn’t accomplish much, my image was fine.” However, as her activities began to pile up, the number of male celebrities who would show their interest in her diminished. Lizzy drew laughter as she expressed her disappointment in the turn of events.

In response to her dissatisfaction, her fellow After School members as well as Son Dam Bi stated, “No, [there are still a lot of guys] interested in Lizzy.” Lizzy then retorted, “Why are they [only liking me] in secret?“, seemingly wishing that they actively pursued her instead.

In the same episode, Lizzy talked about her MBC show ‘Rascal Sons‘, particularly regarding her kiss scene with co-actor Ryu Soo Young. In the show, Lizzy’s character Yuri and Ryu Soo Young’s character Minki, share a surprise kiss after having developed romantic feelings throughout the episodes.

Although Lizzy seemed surprised at first when she was asked about the scene, she shared what she remembered. “Ryu Soo Young’s lips were moist,” she stated, offering an honest answer to the amusement of the set.

Posted: 24 Feb 2013 07:34 AM PST

KARA‘s Gyuri discovered just how hard it was to perform with a yo-yo on ‘Star King‘.

On February 23rd’s airing of ‘Star King’, a Japanese world champion yo-yo performer  Hiroyuki Suzuki appeared on the show and displayed a spectacular performance, wowing the viewers and the KARA girls with dazzling yo-yo gymnastics.

Following the performance, KARA members Gyuri and Jiyoung had the opportunity to collaborate with Suzuki as they hosted a yo-yo performance with some of KARA’s greatest hits.

Calling it the ‘greatest show in the world,’ Gyuri initially showed confidence, but showed uncertainty as she slipped at the beginning of the show.

Unlike Jiyoung, who showed her flexibility by skillfully spinning her yo-yo, Gyuri struggled with her own toy, eventually sending it all over the place.

Watching this spectacle, MC Kang Ho Dong jokingly teased her saying, “2/3 of Gyuri’s performance was rolling up the string.

ZE:A‘s Kwanghee failed at his attempt to edit his online profile.

On the recent episode of MBC‘s ‘We Got Married,’ Kwanghee visited a gym with Sunhwa where he measured his height.

He requested, “Since I proved that I am taller, I would like the people in charge of the green banner portal site to edit it.

However, it seems like Kwanghee’s efforts went to waste, because after the broadcast, the portal website actually deleted Kwanghee’s height all together from his online profile.

After also checking his body fat, he was told, “Your body is a classic Spider-man style.”  The trainer said to Kwanghee, “He has a big stomach, but long arms and legs just like a spider.”
