Posted: 19 Mar 2013 05:33 AM PDT

With spring coming, Busker Busker‘s hit song “Cherry Blossom Ending” is climbing back up the music charts.

A year after its release in March of last year, the hit song rose to the 9th spot on Melon‘s music chart. It is also ranking high on charts for Mnet and Naver Music, which is receiving more attention then the current top song, Davichi‘s “Take a Drink Together“.

It’s rare for a song that is over a year old to get back on the charts unless the track is featured on an audition program. The only explanation is that spring is setting the mood for the song once again.

Looking at the chart for March 18th, 2AM‘s “One Spring Day” and Girls’ Generation Taeyeon‘s “And One“, two other songs fit for spring, also made the list.

He continued, “Because of the various rumors and incidents that were troubling me, I didn’t know what to do to prevent her and her family from becoming victims of this painful situation. We felt and faced everything together. It was a difficult situation for the both of us. I felt sorry, but I couldn’t express myself and was troubled. But she held my hand and told me to gain strength. She told me that she will trust and follow me, and she told me to be encouraged and asked why I am not acting like my normal self. I was really thankful then. I don’t cry often, but when she held my hand and said those things, I cried a river. Because I was tearing up, I couldn’t lift my head. I think I cried a lot then. I think it was the first time that she saw me cry.”

miss A’s Fei is getting more comfortable on variety shows

Posted: 19 Mar 2013 02:11 AM PDT

miss A‘s Fei is becoming a rising star in the variety show field, and she revealed that she’s adjusting well to the scene.

In a recent interview, Fei stated, “Whenever I feature on a variety show, I have to show them some kind of comedic talent, but I don’t have any. When I’m on a variety show, I keep thinking of something funny to show. I try to remember funny stories whenever I normally hear them. I tell my members, ‘Remember this. I will share this story when I come out on a variety show.’”

When I appear on a variety show with my members, I tend to not speak much. I am not normally an outgoing person, so I showed a very quiet side in the past. Now that I get to go on variety shows by myself, I say a lot naturally.

“I used to worry about what would happen if I say something wrong because I am a foreigner, but as I keep doing variety shows, that pressure goes away. It’s not as difficult as it once seemed.”

Fei is currently starring on the variety shows ‘Master Chef Korea Celebrity‘ and ‘Dancing with the Stars 3‘.
