On May 11, the group's agency, Core Contents Media revealed, "We are shocked to receive a love call from Chris Brown. T-ARA N4 will fly to US on the 12th  to discuss everything."

Super Junior Kyuhyun is chosen as the new MC for KBS 2TV‘s ‘Mamma Mia'

Posted: 10 May 2013 11:00 PM PDT




Super Junior Kyuhyun has a new MC challenge, as he was chosen to replace label mate Minho as the MC of KBS 2TV's 'Mamma Mia'.

It was confirmed today that Super Junior Kyuhyun had his first recording as the new MC for KBS 2TV's 'Mamma Mia' on May 9. He will be replacing SHINee's Minho, who will step down on May 12 as his last episode.

The program 'Mamma Mia' had its first broadcast on July 14. In this program, they interview moms with their idol sons or daughters. Some are idols and some are gag men.

Jo Hyun Ah PD, the director of the show, explained that the reason behind Minho's departure is due to his conflicting schedule,"Ever since, it has been decided that Minho is going to host the program for only one month because of SHINee's Japan tour. In that case, episode with Minho will air until this week."

He also revealed the reason of choosing Kyuhyun as the new MC of the show, "We have seen his MC skills on MBC 'Golden Fishery Radio Star and he is rather skilled than any other idols. He has a good chemistry with his fellow MCs Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Guk Jin, Yoo Se Yoon. We believed that he will also fit with Lee Young Ja and Park Mi Sun."

Netizens shared their reactions,"He's pretty good. He has talent and works hard.","He has variety skills he gained from Radio Star.","He has a good understanding of the show he's MC-ing and he has ability to create a character for himself".

Psy regrets 'Gentleman'

Posted: 10 May 2013 10:20 PM PDT



Psy is in the US of A to promote his new track 'Gentleman'. However, he took a break from the promotion and set his foot at Harvard's Memorial Church on May 9 and lectured in front of about 800 Harvard students, faculty and community members. 
Psy's life before his fame was a life of 'WWF' (his nickname during college)---Withdrawal, Withdrawal, and Fail. We all know that he studied and dropped out from his Management course at Boston University and pursued his first love--- music. 
In the event, Psy shared his awkward experiences like his English language skills (before, he only knew 'taxi' and 'bus'), his failings as an undergraduate at Boston University and Madonna's touch-me-anywhere permission at Madison Square Gardens last year.
After the talk, the Harvard Arts Blog had an exclusive backstage interview with Psy. I will share Psy's one answer that caught my attention.
He was asked and I quote, "What advice do you have for Harvard students hoping to make music their life?"
He answered and I quote, "I really hate to regret, but honestly the only thing that I regret these days is that I tried too hard with Gentleman. There was a lot pressure after Gangnam Style. So what I can say to those who are making art, please do not try too hard. It's got to be natural and it's got to be casual."
Psy displayed that he was brave and honest enough to disclose his recent regret regarding 'Gentleman.' That would be hard to say knowing that many people will know it.

FT ISLAND's Lee Hongki, not CNBLUE's Lee Hongki

Posted: 10 May 2013 07:00 PM PDT



Hallyuwood is really the trend, thus the creation of numerous K-Pop idol groups, both male and female, is really rampant. It's inevitable that comparison between two K-Pop groups will arise, and that's what FT ISLAND's Lee Hongki wants to avoid.
There's an issue that FT ISLAND is compared to their labelmate CNBLUE. During the May 8-episode of SBS' 'One Night of TV Entertainment' for 'Passionate Goodbye' interview, FT ISLAND's Lee Hongki implied his dislike about being compared.

Co-star Ma Dong Seok disclosed one situation. He said, "One time at the set, I cracked a joke, 'Do you know Lee HongKi? CN Blue,' and his expression wasn't really pleasant."
Lee Hongki was really surprised because he's about to answer a question. He elucidated, "We're actually really close, but when people start to compare us to make a joke, it's a little…" Ma Dong Seok nodded and said, "I think I know what you mean."

Watch the interview:



Meanwhile, 'Passionate Goodbye' who stars Lee Hongki will be shown in theaters in Korea on May 30.
