2PM completely took over Guangzhou, China with their latest concert!
The boys landed in Guangzhou on the 29th, and they were greeted by over 2,000 fans who had been waiting since early morning just to get a glimpse of 2PM. The sheer number of fans paralyzed the airport to a point where no one could barely take a step, and the members had to move separately to make sure everyone would be safe.
2PM also held a press conference at the Guangzhou Hilton Hotel, and then had participated in a high-touch event with 300 fans. The next day, 9,000 fans cheered loudly for 2PM at their concert, held at the Guangzhou Gymnasium. Taecyeon even sang a Chinese children’s song for his fans at the concert.
The most surprising part of their Chinese trip was their return back to Korea. 1,500 fans got together to organize themselves so that the airport wouldn’t be thrown into chaos. They sat and sang a song for 2PM as they left the airport. 2PM said, “We were surprised and thankful for the passionate love Guangzhou fans showed us. It was a great performance where we were able to feel love and passion. Thank you again.”

K.Will is set to come back on April 4th with “Love Blossom”, and Starship Entertainment had already revealed that INFINITE‘s L would be the male lead, and they’ve now revealed that Dasom would be acting alongside him as the female lead!
Dasom had always had side bangs, but she snipped her bangs short and let her hair down naturally for a completely innocent look. It’s a completely different look than SISTAR’s usual sexy, intense look, but her new look got only praises from those who came across the still cuts from the MV.
K.Will will be coming back with Part 2 of his 3rd album, which big names like Kim Do Hoon, Duble Sidekick, and Primary helped work on.
Check out the teaser below!

Looks like Psy does things on a completely different scale from other artists.
Some singers utilize Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, their official site, and other mediums for major announcements but Psy took the announcement of his new song to a live news broadcast. He recently appeared on MBC‘s ’News Desk‘ to announce that his new song’s title has been confirmed to be “Gentleman“.
Even though rumors had it that “Assaravia” would be his next song, he’d turned down the rumors himself. He’ll be performing “Gentleman” at his concert ‘HAPPENING‘ on April 13 and will be releasing the song on April 12.

Some international fans had discovered the similarities between SHINee‘s “Dream Girl” and Luis Miguel‘s “Vuelve“ almost immediately Dream Girl’s release and now the issue is being spotlighted in Korea.
A video of the two tracks that compared the two songs was uploaded onto YouTube, and the many viewers who listened to it couldn’t help but notice the similarities. Some suggested that SM Entertainment might have sampled the song after buying publication rights.
However, SM Entertainment refuted all rumors that the song was either plagiarized or sampled, saying, “‘Dream Girl’ is the product of producer Shin Hyuk, who is famous for being the producer of the famous pop star Justin Bieber, and his composing team, ‘Joombas Music Factory’.” In a phone call with Chosun, they said, “We didn’t buy distribution rights, and we didn’t sample the song. This is purely SM Entertainment’s creation. The plagiarism accusations are just opinions of some people.”
In another phone call with Osen, a representative from SM said, “We know that [the plagiarism accusations] have stemmed from some netizens. We don’t think they know what plagiarism is. You can say they’re similar, but it’s not right to say they are the same.” A composer stated to Osen, “For a song to be considered plagiarized in legal terms, four bars must be completely the same. If you compare the two songs, you can’t say that.”

Actress Go Jun Hee revealed the secret behind maintaining a perfect figure.
“I stave off snack cravings by eating full meals,” she said during an interview for MBC‘s ‘Entertainment Relay‘. In contrast to several other actresses who acknowledged cutting down on meals, Go Jun Hee said that having a regular eating pattern and cutting down on unnecessary junk food was more important.
In addition, sporting shorter hair may have gotten her more popular, she theorized. “After I switched my hairstyle, I seem to have grown in popularity among female fans,” she said.

Actor and variety star Cha Tae Hyun was surprised by Kim Jong Min‘s attack on his marital status during a game on the latest episode of ‘1 Night 2 Days‘.
Divided into two teams, they set off on a game of ‘insults’ to determine dinner for that night, with the last team standing being the winner.
Kim Jong Min teed off the attack with “I don’t like how you keep grinning all the time”, a comparatively weak attack.
Laughing, Cha Tae Hyun replied, “you’re ugly” - which seemed to strike right at his heart. Wobbling for a few seconds, Kim Jong Min soon appeared to have a brilliant idea. “You regret your marriage!” he yelled.
To this, Cha Tae Hyun charged at his opponent, yelling, “Not yet!”

2PM are taking teasing to the next level with their latest teaser clip.
In a stroke of genius, or is this torture, the group released a ‘secret code’ video teaser. Rather than give hints of the comeback song, or clips of the music video, 2PM does neither. In an initially perplexing video, all that fans get is a white blob with intermittent beeps.
Those Hottest who have spent some time in Girls or Boys Scouts will probably have instantly recognized the “beeps” in the new teaser as International Morse Code. What does the code say? Listen and try to figure it out.
Still can’t figure it out, highlight the white space below for the answer.
2PM IS BACK
