Posted: 07 Mar 2013 08:40 AM PST

HyunA revealed that she’s been a fan of D-Unit ever since they debuted!

A photo of HyunA with the rookie girl group was posted onto D-Unit’s Facebook with the simple caption “D-UNIT & HyunA“. Reportedly, even though HyunA was busy, she made time to see D-Unit just to be able to meet them.

She confessed, “I’ve liked them ever since they debuted. I always made sure to watch every show D-Unit came out on. If I get the chance, I’d like to work with them in D-Unit.

Of course, D-Unit couldn’t hide their excitement at HyunA’s attention, and they replied, “If we work together with the world-famous star HyunA sunbae, we’d be so happy“.

Representatives from D-Unit and 4minute agreed on the possibility of working together stating, “If the date and concepts match up, then it’s not impossible“.

How do you think D-Unit would be if HyunA was part of the group?

AA (Double A)’s “Rollin Rollin” banned from KBS and SBS

Posted: 07 Mar 2013 08:05 AM PST

AA (Double A) finally came back with their pre-releaseRollin’ Rollin’“, but the song has been banned from broadcast by both KBS and SBS.

The song was sent in for review to the three terrestrial broadcast stations (KBS, SBS, MBC), and after review both KBS and SBS had judged it unfit for broadcast.

AA’s label shared their thoughts on why the song was banned, “We think the part of the lyrics for ‘Rollin’ Rollin” that say ‘I want to roll, roll around’, and ‘I want to roll, roll around with you’ was problematic. The song ‘Rollin’ Rollin” talks about wanting to spend a lazy day together with a loved one, and we’re disappointed that it was seen sexually. We’re going to respect their decision and make another version for broadcast to send up for review.

Thankfully fans don’t have to worry as their comeback won’t be delayed. “Rollin’ Rollin’” is only their pre-release song, so the group is still planning to release their first mini album on time in the end of March.

Posted: 07 Mar 2013 07:10 AM PST

Kim Bum promised to kiss A Pink‘s Eunji in real life if their drama gets over 20% in viewer ratings.

On ‘One Night of TV Entertainment‘, Kim Bum complained jokingly about his kiss scene with Eunji in ‘Wind Blows in Winter‘, saying, “My lips were stolen, and I got slapped. To be honest, I didn’t think I’d have a kiss scene in the middle of a trash heap.

When asked what he’d do if the drama went over the 20% mark in ratings, Kim Bum said, “I’ll kiss Eunji for real.” The MC pointed out that Kim Bum should consider Eunji’s opinion as well, and he replied coolly, “The guy’s supposed to make the first move in cases like this.” Eunji, who was right next to him, joked along and said, “My heart just started beating faster.

Currently, the drama is rated the highest out of all three Wednesday/Thursday dramas. Even though they’ve got some ways to go until 20%, considering the ratings keep rising, we may end up seeing a real kiss between the two!

How expensive are SHINee’s mics for “Dream Girl”?

Posted: 07 Mar 2013 06:20 AM PST

SHINee‘s standing mic dance for “Dream Girl” has been a hot issue, and the boys have already announced that one mic weighs in at 4 kgs (8.8 lbs). But do you know how expensive the mics are?

The mics aren’t ordinary mics – they’re built from a material used to build airplanes to make sure they’re as sturdy and light as possible. SM Entertainment revealed, “The mics that SHINee use are specially made from the same material as airplanes. Each one costs 1,500,000 KRW (approximately 1,380 USD). They’re used for both practice and on stage, so we have 5 extra for a total of 10.

Even airplane material might not be strong enough though because one broke on stage already.

Although fans would expect people to be delighted about meeting hit-making producer Brave Brothers, he revealed that many people are actually scared of him.

On the latest episode of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Moonlight Prince‘, MC Brave Brothers revealed his biggest insecurity is his face. The book of discussion was ‘Martin Pebble‘, which tells the story of a boy whose face turns red, and it led the cast to open up about their personal issues.

I only tried to converse with them, but they become scared of me for no reason.”

Viewers commented, “Upon first glance, he does look kind of scary,” “But you can’t judge him just by his face,” and “Brave Brothers must have been hurt by it.

Jooyeon presented her fans with a breathtaking selca from bed!

She tweeted, “A [hot] hello,” along with the photo above. As the After School member had all her makeup on, it doesn’t look like she just woke up despite the fact that she posted in the morning. In any case, whether Jooyeon was just rolling around on the bed or had just gotten on the bed to take a selca, it doesn’t change the fact that she looks stunningly gorgeous.

Not only that, even though she’d taken a close-up of her face, her skin looks smooth and clear. Must be nice to be Jooyeon!
