Remember when Hoya revealed actor Kwak Jung Wook was originally going to be a part of INFINITE?

Well, the revelation had all of us wondering what kind of picture you’d get if he was actually an INFINITE member, but wonder no more! The actor has been kind enough to provide us with the exact image by posing with the INFINITE members backstage after their fanmeeting.

He posed with Hoya and Woohyun in one photo, writing, “I prepared hard so I wouldn’t be a burden to INFINITE, but it’s true that I was lacking since it was my first MC stage. I did a lot of things randomly, but please look at them nicely and forgive me! Thank you, Inspirit, for cheering me on :)“.

 

He posted another photo with L, tweeting, “A proof that INFINITE’s L and I made up :) Myung Soo, you can come near the film set now… To be honest it’s really not that you can’t act“.

2AM member Jinwoon is the cause of the group’s discord?

Posted: 02 Mar 2013 10:17 PM PST

Park Myung Soo has boldly claimed that the 2AM members do not get along with each other.

On the March 2nd broadcast of MBC‘s ‘Quiz to Change the World‘, the ambitious and always-prepared comedian Park Myung Soo started a new segment for the show. In this new segment, MC Park Myung Soo aims to prod the entertainment industry with shocking news backed by “evidence”.

For this episode, Park Myung Soo selected the 2AM members to be his first victims, saying, “There are [rumors] floating around that these days, the 2AM [members] don’t get along. I’ve heard that, until recently, they used to live together [in a dormitory], but now they live in their own individual homes leading separate lives.

At this, 2AM’s maknae Jinwoon admitted, “As the housing contract has ended, we are living separately. As we have debut anniversary meetings [every year], we [think it's okay to] lead separate lives.

Park Myung Soo, however, retorted, “Honestly, four men can’t all get along with each other. There’s another severe rumor floating around that [the 2AM members] don’t get along because of one person. There’s even a rumor saying that Jinwoon’s ‘star-byung’ [arrogant attitude as a star] is the reason [that there is such a discord among the members]. I even have a picture that shows Jinwoon kicking the door of the dormitory [as evidence of his bad attitude].

The 2AM members appeared shocked at the comedian’s absurd declaration, and denied his claims profusely. MC Lee Hwee Jae himself seemed to find the story ridiculous, as he noted, “I feel like I just listened to a children’s fairytale,” drawing laughter from the set.

2AM’s Jo Kwon was a scary sunbae to SISTAR’s Hyorin?

Posted: 02 Mar 2013 09:29 PM PST

2AM‘s Jo Kwon shared a story regarding his pre-debut, trainee life with SISTAR‘s Hyorin.

On the March 2nd episode of MBC‘s ‘Quiz to Change the World‘, after Jo Kwon expressed his interest in a 90s MBC sitcom ‘Three Guys and Three Girls‘, he and SISTAR’s Hyorin became the center of attention.

There was an awkward atmosphere about the two idols, as they couldn’t even look each other in the eye. Noticing this, an MC pointed out, “You two are really indifferent [towards each other]. Did something happen between you two? Greet each other. Why do you guys act exactly like people who were once close and then fell apart? Did someone confess and get rejected?

At this, fellow 2AM member Changmin offered a possible explanation, saying, “Jo Kwon scolded Hyorin once when they were trainees.

Jo Kwon clarified, “[When we were trainees,] Hyorin was the number one candidate for JYP auditions. In order to ensure she didn’t get too prideful about this, however, the trainee sunbaes, myself included, would purposely act scarily towards her,” thus revealing the reason behind the strange tension between the two idol.

Was ok for him to scold Hyorin to prevent her from being too cocky?

I think I’ve hit my prime right now”, referring to her latest achievement of film ‘Miracle In Cell No.7‘ passing the 10 million viewer mark.

“After revealing my childhood photos, the people around me said I was prettier back then. I hear that I’ve become a lot more feminine nowadays. I always like being told that I’m pretty”, hinting to the kind of pick-up line she would like from a guy (take notes fan boys).

Park Shin Hye also revealed her dream, “I want to become an actress like Audrey Hepburn. She is an actress that my mother is fond of as well and told me she would like it if I become an actress like her.”

[Staff Picks] Best Acting Idols

Posted: 02 Mar 2013 03:30 PM PST

Get a glimpse of what we're talking about and listening to at the 6Theory office with this fun feature! We'll be offering you guys a personal selection of our favorite things from K-Pop.

K-Pop and K-Drama go hand-in-hand, so it’s only natural that many K-Pop Idols venture into acting. It’s a common sight now for our favorite idol singers to expand their role and participate in acting. The crossover effect in K-pop and K-drama’s is usually mutually beneficial. Sometimes the acting role will propel a staggering idol career while on the flip side, TV executives will bring on a well recognized idol singer to help revitalize a fledgling franchise with their built-in fanbase. However, just because you’re a big name doesn’t mean you’re a good actor. This staff pick features who we believe are some of the best idol talents in the acting world today.


After School‘s UEE

UEE happens to be one of the rare idols who can star on a drama and make it into a hit. Even though most idol-dramas are highly popular with the international crowd, they sadly suffer in terms of ratings in Korea. UEE seems to be one of the few exceptions, with ‘Ojakgyo Brothers‘ breaking over the 30% rating mark. Even though ‘Jeon Woo Chi‘ didn’t see that big of a success, it still snagged the #1 spot in viewer ratings for most of its run. She also took home multiple rookie awards for her acting in ‘Ojakgyo Brothers’ as the lovely main character Baek Ja Eun, and she and Joo Won acted so naturally they had multiple scandals. Check out a clip below!


Super Junior‘s Siwon

Siwon’s been acting in plenty of dramas including ‘Oh! My Lady‘, ‘Athena‘, and ‘Poseidon‘. But he really showed off his acting chops through ‘The Lord of the Drama‘, where he hilariously played the role of an arrogant top actor. While it’s true that the drama wasn’t stellar in terms of ratings, it was a really big plus for Siwon, who showed that he much more to the table than playing serious, charismatic roles, and that he could be a perfect chameleon to whatever role he played.


2PM‘s Chansung

Chansung may not be the first 2PM member people think of when they think ‘acting’, but he’s proven himself to be the best through his role on ‘7th Grade Civil Servant‘. He completely revamped his image and stole hearts of viewers all around. Of course, it’s always a plus that he has a cool, charismatic character to play, but even with a gift like that. Like Siwon, people might view him as only being able to play certain tough guy roles, so it will be interesting to see how Chansung grows as an actor in the future.

Big Bang‘s T.O.P

T.O.P swept rookie awards with his role in ‘71: Into the Fire‘, and made a huge impact as a cold-blooded, incredibly sexy killer in the original ‘Iris‘. For the most part, all he has to do is smirk and look sizzling, which is what he’s natural at anyway. He took on a more comedic role for ‘I Am Sam‘, and will be playing yet another killer for ‘Alumni‘. Maybe his roles are getting a little redundant, but it’s not a bad idea to stick to what you’re good at. Check him out on ‘Iris’! (With the matching up lyrics as a bonus!)


A Pink‘s Eunji

Eunji gained incredible popularity for her role in ‘Reply 1997‘, not just with her cute satoori but also her freshness as a rookie actress and her incredible chemistry with Seo In Guk. The drama was so great for her that she became a household name overnight and also helped spread awareness for her group A Pink. It gained her roles in the musical ‘Legally Blonde‘ and ‘Wind Blows in Winter‘. She’s tackling the standard dialect this time around, so we’ll have to see if she can keep up her praises. Meanwhile, check out her and Seo In Guk below!


MBLAQ‘s Lee Joon

Lee Joon is the only idol of the current generation of K-pop stars to have acted in a Hollywood movie – while that might have been mainly because of Rain, Hollywood doesn’t take its actors just because of connection. He even left behind a famous line – “You shouldn’t do that“, and performed all of his action scenes himself. His acting shone even in the short music videos that MBLAQ had. He finally got a character that was more like his lighthearted yet hardworking self in ‘Iris 2‘, so hopefully he can prove that he doesn’t have to stick to the silent and stoic type to shine.


JYJ‘s Yoochun

Yoochun’s had a stable career since his role on “Sungkyunkwan Scandal“, but unfortunately all of his dramas suffered from low-to-mediocre ratings. But despite this, he’s won an award for Best New Actor in 2011. He even won two Excellent Actor Awards for his 2012 dramas. Yoochun is one of the few idols who have broken free from the ‘idol actor’ stereotypes, so check out a hilarious video of him pretending he can’t sing below!
