G-Dragon censored himself because he ‘wasn’t wearing any pants’!
The Big Bang leader posted a photo of himself sitting on a chair, possibly wearing shorts (or perhaps nothing at all). In any case, he left that part up to the fans’ imagination as he tweeted the above photo and wrote, “This is sexual it’s like I’m not wearing any pants. I’m going to censor myself“.
He placed a big red line in the center of the photo to ‘censor’ himself while looking a bit uncomfortable.
Fans commented, “So Shy“, “Post the photo again without the red line“, and “You’re the Best“.

Han Hye Jin‘s marriage won’t be affecting her job!
When she confirmed that she’d be marrying her boyfriend Ki Sung Yong in July, many fans worried that she might be stepping down from her well-loved position on ‘Healing Camp‘, but those fears have been alleviated.
‘Healing Camp’ recently stated, “We already knew they were going to get married. But nothing will change. She’ll keep her MC position.”
Han Hye Jin and Ki Sung Yong kept in touch after he featured on a past episode of SBS's 'Healing Camp', where the soccer player selected her as his ideal type. The two began their relationship in January of this year, and confirmed dating rumors in March. Although it's been only 4 months into their relationship, with their love and respect for one another, the two have decided to tie the knot in July.
Congratulations to Han Hye Jin and Ki Sung Yong once again!

K.Will might be a lean singing prodigy now, but he revealed that his parents were once scared that he might become obese.
On the May 9th broadcast of SBS‘ ‘Star Couple Show‘, K.Will shared, “My mother told me that when I was a baby, I didn’t sleep at night and kept crying. She hoped that I might fall asleep in a quiet and silent place, so she once put me into the wardrobe.”
“I am an only child, and I was on the chubby side during elementary school. My parents worried that I might become obese. Only children usually get treated with special care, but my mother was definitely not like that. My parents were a weekend couple, so I was only able to eat side dishes with meat when my father came home. I normally ate only vegetables.”
“On the days my father would come, I tried to grab the meat, so my mother blocked me with her chopsticks. I once cried and went to my room because of it. I talk to my mother about it sometimes and said, ‘If I ate a lot, I would’ve grown taller.’ My mom replied, ‘You were also my first child, so how would I have known? If I had another child, I would’ve raised it well, but we failed with you’,” bringing laughter with his mother’s brutal honesty.

Talented vocalist trio Peernine will be making their debut in what seems to be the busiest month of the year in K-pop.
Peernine previously gave music lovers a taste of their group’s sound with the track, “Never Wear Nice Clothes“, which was released back in April, and they’ll now make their official debut with the single “Wake Up“.
The group consists of Sohee, Eunbi, and Hwajin, and their group’s name, Peernine, is a combination of the words ‘bloom’ and ‘person’ in Korean. Their hope is to bring healing through music like a blooming flower.
Their agency Escrow Entertainment stated, “Peernine, who can pull off various genres and are gradually receiving attention in the industry, will blow a wind of refreshing vocals.”
Get ready for some more new music with Peernine’s debut on the 14th!

During the latest episode, she confessed, “I’m always especially nervous on ‘Sketchbook’ performances. I try so hard to be good that I end up being awkward. It’s like meeting the parents of your fiance.”
Yoo Hee Yeol joked, “Does that mean I’m the father-in-law?” and Younha replied, “Looking at your body, you’re more the sister-in-law,” bursting into laughter. He added, “As an oppa, I feel bad for you because I feel like you’re only focusing on music at such a young age. Who is your ideal type?”
Younha answered, “I don’t care about looks.” However, contrary to what she said, she chose Song Joong Ki as her ideal type! It’s true that Song Joong Ki’s known for being a gentleman, but perhaps she considers looks after all?

At 168 cm (~5’6″), Son Dam Bi is one of the tallest female singers, and she usually towers over many of the other girls on stage.
However, her tall height is nothing compared to her model friends. She went to visit her buddy, model Lee Young Jin, at the VIP screening of the movie ‘You In My Fantasy‘. With all the other models around her, Son Dam Bi was actually the shortest one in the group. She tweeted the photo, writing a simple, “Youngjin unni, I hope it’s daebak ^^.”
Lee Young Jin posted a photo with just the pair of them and wrote, “Little kid & mini-me. Out of all my friends, @dambi925 is the shortest! Kya kya kya kya kya.”
During their conversation later, Son Dam Bi revealed she was happy because she’d never been called a ‘little kid’ before due to her height.

U-KISS‘ Eli has always been good about updating his fans on Twitter, replying to as many as he can as frequently as possible.
Of course, because of the sheer number of mentions he gets, it’s impossible for him to reply to everyone, and that apparently results in some sad fans. For these particular fans, Eli had a piece of great advice: to stop being so negative! He wrote,
Well, KISSMEs, now you know what not to do when you want a reply back from Eli! Make sure to stay positive, and since Eli is usually very good at replying to fans, you may just get a reply yourself.

Wednesday-Thursday dramas are wading in mediocre ratings.
According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, KBS 2TV‘s ‘Mandate of Heaven‘ managed to top the other two on Thursday, but just barely with 9.4%. Not only were the ratings mediocre, but they’d also dropped 0.2% since Wednesday.
‘Mandate of Heaven’ beat MBC‘s ‘When a Man Loves‘ and SBS‘ ‘Everything About My Romance‘, both of which had 9.0% and 5.6%, respectively.
It’s rare that even a weekday drama slot can’t produce even a single drama with over 10% in ratings. What do you think happened? Are you watching any of these dramas?

Well, he explained that he had no underlying intentions except that he was simply acting as a sunbae. On KBS 2TV‘s ‘Generation Empathy Saturday‘, he explained, “When Girls’ Generation were still rookies, we appeared on the same show. I heard Yuri say that she wanted to eat beef, so I sent over some beef as a sunbae. But if I send it now, they’ll think I’m weird, so I can’t send any.”
When Girl’s Day‘s Minah heard this, she exclaimed, “On a singing program, we won a fishing pole once. We gave it to Park Hyun Bin because we didn’t know how to use it, but he never gave anything to us!”
Maybe next time he’ll send Girl’s Day some food?
Catch the rest of the show on the 11th at 9:05PM KST!
