HyunA’s detailed examination results show she’s fine

Posted: 09 May 2013 08:50 AM PDT

4nias can breathe a sigh of relief, because HyunA‘s detailed examination results revealed that she’s fine.

On May 9, Cube Entertainment confirmed, “HyunA has gotten much healthier. She was hospitalized because of her high fever, but now it’s gone down quite a bit. Further examinations showed that there is nothing wrong with her. But her fever is still going up and down, so we’re going to keep watching her. We’re thinking of having her stay in the hospital and rest until she’s fully recovered.

For the fans who were looking forward to her appearance for ‘Dream Concert‘ on May 11, that is still up in the air. Cube Entertainment said, “We’re carefully monitoring her and she’ll leave the hospital when she’s fully recovered. We’ll inform you of the decision when it’s confirmed.

San-E denies being the ‘S’ that asked Niel out

Posted: 09 May 2013 08:20 AM PDT

In a hilarious turn of events, San-E got involved in Niel‘s ‘S’ incident.

Or rather, he included himself in the topic of conversation. Using his recent leave from JYP Entertainment and Andy‘s recent comments on ‘Radio Star‘ as the premise of his joke, San-E took to his Twitter to write, “I’m not the ‘S’ girl;;“.

Later on, he again wrote, “Niel is cool, but how can you say I was forced to leave because I asked Niel out……” Along with his post, he posted a photo of himself posing by a park sign that originally read ‘Gate Ball’. However, he’d purposely covered up the second part of the word, making the sign only read ‘Gay’.

As San-E is scheduled to return with his new single, “Big Boy on May 13, it’s a pretty clever way to promote himself.

Sohee denies asking Niel out + Andy apologizes for his comments

Posted: 09 May 2013 07:51 AM PDT

Yesterday when Shinhwa came out as a guest on MBC‘s ‘Radio Star‘, Andy confessed that TEEN TOP‘s Niel had been asked out by a JYP Entertainment girl group member ‘S’!

Of course, as soon as the episode aired, many viewers tried to guess who ‘S’ was, and most came to conclude it was Wonder Girls member Sohee because she’d once said TEEN TOP was her favorite group. However, Sohee denied all the accusations. When a fan asked her on Twitter, “Are you ‘S’?“, she answered shortly, “I am not-“. This denial was especially surprising since Sohee mostly uses her Twitter only to re-tweet other posts.

Andy also apologized for what he’d said through his own website, writing, “Hello, this is Andy. I’m sincerely sorry to everyone that was bothered because of me. I’ll be more careful on broadcast from now on. I’m Sorry.

How are Baek Ji Young’s wedding and her ‘I Am a Singer’ days related?

Posted: 09 May 2013 07:02 AM PDT

PD Kim Young Hee revealed that the reason he was going to be officiating Baek Ji Young and Jung Suk Won‘s wedding ceremony was because of the bride-to-be’s appearance on MBC‘s ’I Am a Singer‘.

He revealed, “I’m going to be officiating Baek Ji Young’s ceremony. It came about after I met her in 2011 when I was directing ‘I Am a Singer’.” Kim Young Hee was the original PD of ‘I Am a Singer’, and Baek Ji Young appeared as one of the first contestants on the show. He revealed, “When we were preparing ‘I Am a Singer’, it was hard to [get singers to agree to appear]. When I asked her to join, she kept thinking about it. In the end, she told me, ‘I don’t know when I’ll get married, but officiate my ceremony when I do,’ so I said okay right away.

He also confessed, “I’ve actually never met Jung Suk Won. But apparently the bride, the groom, and the officiator are supposed to eat before the wedding, so we’re going to be meeting mid-May.

Baek Ji Young and actor Jung Suk Won will be tying the knot on June 2nd KST.

Congrats to the lovely couple once again!

Jung Sun Hee opens up about the aftermath of her husband and friend’s suicides on ‘Incarnation’

Posted: 09 May 2013 02:10 AM PDT

Jung Sun Hee appeared on SBS‘ ‘Incarnation‘ and opened up about the emotional toll that the suicides of her husband Ahn Jae Hwan and friend Choi Jin Shil had on her.

Jung Sun Hee shared, “My life’s ‘line of strength’ is – ‘When I’m going through a very difficult time, I stray away from my happy friends.’ When I was really struggling, I got hurt just from meeting with people. Even if they’re good friends, it was very hard on me after I would meet up with them. I felt like only I was going backwards, and I didn’t have any room in my heart to congratulate those, who unlike me, talked about their future.”

“At the time, it was hard just to live out each day. I hadn’t even finished building my foundation, yet my friends were already building houses. I hated myself for not being able to be ‘cool’ and be sincerely happy for them. I thought that time would heal my pain from that incident, but that wasn’t the case. Thus, I decided it would be best not to meet anyone and focus more time on myself.”

“The world is filled with people in pain. I was able to heal as I hosted a radio show. As I looked at the people who were hurting more than I was, I felt grateful for my situation.”

Jung Sun Hee asked one of her best friends Choi Hwa Jung, “Unni, how can you be so happy every day?” She replied, “I use facial masks and eat omega-3,” and Jung Sun Hee stated she was thankful for her random, yet comfortable answer.

Yoon Jong Shin shared, “I am meeting Jung Sun Hee for the first time in a long time today, and I thought a lot about how I should greet her and start a conversation with her. Honestly, I even prepared comments for 3-4 of the things Jung Sun Hee was going to talk about.” Jung Sun Hee joked, “I am thankful for inexperienced comfort from men.”

Shin Dong Yup also brought up his own past to comfort her, sharing, “I also experienced many incidents and accidents. I strayed away from people’s sudden encouragement and felt uncomfortable by it. I needed time to think by myself.”

Cultwo‘s Jung Chan Woo revealed, “When I first heard that Jung Sun Hee was going to return to radio, there were a lot of concerns. If I were in her shoes, I wouldn’t have been able to do it. Jung Sun Hee is really amazing.”
