Sun became a dazzling bride in white for ‘Elle‘!
Now, JYP Entertainment has revealed even more photos from her honeymoon in Maldives, where she ran around the white sand in sneakers that clashed cutely with her wedding dress and the beautiful blue water backdrop.
Not just that, but Sun also decided to pair her wedding dress up with goofy sunglasses, laughing the entire time she posed for the camera. She managed to make even funny sunglasses look gorgeous.
But of course, we can’t have a photoshoot without Sun looking just plainly gorgeous.

Channel A explained what they meant by their statement.
On the 25th, many JYJ fans were excited as the boys performed on stage at the Presidential Inauguration Park Geun Hye. Not only was it a big honor but it was also the first time for the group to appear on broadcast television as a group. However, fans became a bit upset at Channel A for a statement made during JYJ’s performance.
During the performance, a male anchor stated, “This is messy. There’s something awkward. There should be lighting. We’ve always seen such fancy stages, so it doesn’t look like a show.” The female anchor for the station responded immediately, “It’s because it’s outside. President Park Geun Hye wanted a simple inauguration that many citizens could attend. Because of that, it’s different from the concerts we normally see.”
The male anchor’s comment caused many JYJ fans to rise up and criticize the channel. With the influx of complaints, Channel A explained, “Because the inauguration stage was prepared in a simple way, the stage was quite narrow. They mean that it looked chaotic because of all the audience moving around, since it was the start of the performances.”
Check out the performance below! What do you think?

It appears Taecyeon will have the opportunity to expand his acting chops.
The 2PM rapper has been approached for a role on the movie ‘The Night Before the Wedding‘, a romantic comedy that revolves around 8 men and women. He hasn’t accepted the role yet and his label stated, “We’re looking over it optimistically, but there’s nothing confirmed as of yet. It’s hard to say anymore.”
However, if he is cast for the movie, 2PM fans are in for a dilemma, because the movie will start filming in April. The boys are long overdue for a comeback, but if Taecyeon is too busy filming for a movie, they may push the comeback even more. What do you think?

On Feburary 23rd broadcast of ‘SNL Korea’, Jay Park, Kim Seul Gi, and Shin Dong Yeob were acting out ‘Lee Ung Don PD’s Food X-File‘ when Jay Park improvised and added “Isn’t that Lee Ung Don?” [Lee Ung Don is the name of the SNL segment.]
Shin Dong Yeob started laughing upon hearing Jay Park’s ad-lib and couldn’t continue his lines for a moment. Since the show is run live, it would’ve lead to a broadcast accident. However, Shin Dong Yeob quickly controlled his laughter and overcame the risky moment.
Meanwhile, the first episode of this season’s ‘SNL Korea’ was hosted by actor Choi Min Soo.
Choi Min Soo parodied the movie ‘Holiday‘ where he donned a gold tooth and an umbrella.
In the parody, Choi Min Soo followed Jay Park around and killed off those around him including his girlfriend and a doctor. Choi Min Soo made the viewers erupt in laughter by ending the parody with, “I thought I could have you if I do this.”

G.NA is known for treating her fans with frequent selca updates.
However, her recent selca in particular has caught fans’ eyes because it seems to be giving a sneak peak of G.NA’s comeback image.
On February 23th, G.NA tweeted, “Dressing up for Spring after a long time! It’s slowly starting to feel real… Let’s be strong until the end! Hwaiting!~ ” sharing the above picture.
In addition to G.NA looking fresh with her see-through bangs and a tight orange striped shirt that showed off her blessed figure, the tweet itself seemed to be directed at her anticipated comeback.
As it was reported earlier, G.NA and Kahi are planning to take on the music scene once again with their sexy charisma. Although it’s too soon to decide if this will be G.NA’s new look for her comeback, it definitely adds to the anticipation.
Meanwhile, those who saw the tweet commented, “G.NA’s see-through bangs are pretty“, “G.NA is a bagel [baby face, glamorous body] girl“, and “G.NA also looks good with see-through bangs.”
Are allkpop readers also excited for the sexy queen’s comeback?

Still cuts for Davichi’s MV for “Turtle” were released, and Hyoyoung sported bright pink, curly hair! She’s never had quite a startling image before, as she’d mostly opted for short black hair. This is a huge change for her, especially because she made herself familiar with the general public through ‘School 2013‘ where she had a plain bob.
The song “Turtle” is by Duble Sidekick. The full album itself will have songs from Vibe's Ryu Jae Hyun and Choi Kyu Sung. The album’s expected to be released on March 4th.

Earlier today, Cube Entertainment uploaded Illhoon’s version of the ”Cutie/Kiyumi Song“. If you watch Korean variety songs you will be familiar with the song since it s currently all the rage. Basically, there are stages of aegyo, each one a bit cuter than the last. It’s a running gag to get adults or people who wouldn’t normally do aegyo to sing the song, much to the laughter of those around them.
What makes Ilhoon’s so interesting is that he sings the song quite comfortably, with no signs of laughter or embarrassment. He sings with full abandon, adding his own unique and tons of uber-adorable hand gestures, winks and coy smiles.
Let Ilhoon’s cuteness wash over you while you watch the insanely cute clip below. Can there ever be too much aegyo?
If you haven’t passed out from a sweetness overdose, check out the cute-as-a-button 6-year-old Park Min Ha, Eunhyuk, Jisook, and actor Lee Dong Wook‘s versions on ‘Strong Heart’.

The OST cover also features Yunho, so it’s possible that the song may become Yunho’s theme song in the drama. Listen to it below!

We were right! Woohyun will be releasing “Cactus” with singer Lucia on the 27th. The song is the 2nd project from ‘Re;code‘, the same project that produced the mega-hit ”Officially Missing You, Too” by Geeks and Soyu. While the project doesn’t really mean official promotions from Woohyun, you can still hear his amazing voice through the song.
The song originally comes in two versions, one by Epitone Project‘s Cha Se Jung and another by Lucia herself. In the re-edited version, Woohyun’s own voice will be mixing perfectly with Lucia’s original.
Are you looking forward to the song?

JYJ will finally be returning for official promotions!
And they’ll be doing it with a bang – the trio will have a 3-day concert at the Tokyo Dome. Their label said, “JYJ will be meeting their fans in Japan for the first time in 4 years. This Tokyo Dome concert will go on for 3 days, and it means a lot in various ways. We will be revealing the details of the concert within the week.”
There were rumors that the boys had been approached by famous Japanese labels after the end of their lawsuit with Avex. Hopefully the fact that they’re standing on stage for their Japanese fans means they now have a stable career in front of them in Japan!

‘POP’ is a famous fashion magazine in England that the whole world watches for its trendy fashion and art. HyunA became its cover girl for the 28th issue, putting her right up there with other icons like Madonna, Britney Spears, Victoria Beckham, and Jennifer Lopez.
Editor Ashley Heath said, “HyunA became an icon of K-pop for Westerners through “Gangnam Style“. On YouTube, a few clicks turned into millions and tens of millions because of HyunA’s unique charm. HyunA is stylish, and can be called the prime example of our generation’s liveliness.”
It’s a little disappointing that HyunA isn’t getting known for her own songs, but rather for her rendition of Psy’s song (as you can see by the #OPPAJUSTMYSTYLE on the cover). Nonetheless it’s nice to see her getting recognized for her own style as well.
Check out another photo of her from the magazine below!
