Junhyung’s latest update refuels breakup rumors with KARA’s Hara

Posted: 16 Mar 2013 06:57 AM PDT

Though DSP and Cube have already denied breakup rumors, Junhyung‘s latest selca update on Twitter has refueled talk.

On March 15th, the B2ST member posted, “Laugh, man,” as well as the photo above to the same SNS that started speculation that he and KARA‘s Hara may have broken up. When fans noticed that the idol couple un-followed each other on Twitter, many assumed that the two were on the rocks or possibly separated.

Netizens are commenting that Junhyung’s photo and message hint that not all is okay with the idol. It’s hard to tell whether he’s laughing or trying to laugh in the black-and-white selca, but many are saying it’s most likely the latter.

Fans responded, “Smile brightly,” “I don’t know if you’re laughing or crying,” and “Is something wrong?”

Why do you think Hara and Junhyung un-followed each other on Twitter? Does this new update make you wonder about the couple’s relationship status?

Swell Entertainment explains the Navi from ‘Voice Korea 2′ preview is not the ballad soloist of the same name

Posted: 15 Mar 2013 11:31 PM PDT

As mentioned just earlier, netizens couldn’t help but be completely surprised as singer Navi made an appearance as a contestant on 'Voice Korea 2' during the preview shown in their latest episode.

With the airing of the preview, questions have been flooding with viewers flocking to the viewer boards to leave their comments and thoughts about the preview, questioning what had happened to soloist Navi, whom they saw return with an album last year.

Well, it turns out, the Navi in question is not the Navi that the show’s PR team had led many to believe. It turns out this singer is actually another Navi or Nabi (spelled the same way in Korean), who also shares the same debut year as the soloist.

The Navi in the preview, whose real name is Nah Ah Ram, is actually a former member of Holladang, a group that debuted in 2008.

Swell Entertainment stepped up to clarify the situation, as they commented, “The Navi on ‘Voice Korea 2′ is not the ballad singer Navi, but rather Nah Ah Ram, who had the same stage name and promoted as part of the group Holladang.”

Posted: 15 Mar 2013 10:57 PM PDT

2NE1‘s CL definitely had fans taking a second look as she donned stunning looks for the April issue of ‘W Korea‘ magazine!

Although she kept it totally classy with her outfits, she still made it all her own as she pulled off flamboyant head pieces and shoes. The rapper also modeled against the eye-catching backdrop of famous graffiti artist Banksy, and also utilized pieces from m-flo member Verbal‘s wife’s accessory brand Ambush.

Given CL’s natural swag, she was the perfect model to pull off the concept which is said to be “Keep Calm and Swag On”, parodying the famous saying, “Keep Calm and Carry On”.

[Update: It seems like 'W Korea' isn't the only one in the sharing mood today as CL has also revealed another photo from the shoot on her Instagram! Photo can be seen below.]
