INFINITE determine hyung & dongseng through popularity, not age

Posted: 01 May 2013 09:06 AM PDT

INFINITE revealed their own unique way of determining hyung and dongseng within the group.

On the May 1st episode of MBC Every1‘s ‘Weekly Idol‘, INFINITE revealed, “We decided on who is the hyung and dongseng through popularity. But at the moment we’re friends.

Sunggyu added, “When Hoya was getting really popular with ‘Reply 1997‘, he did a CF by himself for a phone company. We made him the title of hyung immediately and after that he got really arrogant. He thought he was a big star, so we had to get rid of that. Now he’s not a hyung anymore.

Hoya admitted, “Sunggyu hyung yelled at me because I got arrogant. So we decided everyone should be friends.

To this, the MCs teased him by saying, “Didn’t your solo album not do well?“. Sunggyu was flustered but explained, “It’s because it was edited like that on broadcast. Don’t edit this out! My solo album was a classic. You can’t say it failed. I sold 70,000-80,000 albums all by myself, and not many solo artists can accomplish that.

‘We Demand the Truth From Roy Kim’ cafe surfaces

Posted: 01 May 2013 08:36 AM PDT

Roy Kim had recently released his song “Spring Spring Spring“. The song has performed incredibly well on the charts, but everything isn’t so rosy as the song is under plagiarism controversy.

Some listeners pointed out that the song sounds similar to the late Kim Kwang Suk‘s “The Place Wind Blows“, and that his chorus sounds similar to Norwegian band A-Ha‘s “Take On Me“. Although these accusations have been met with largely mixed reception, one netizen has gone as far as to create a cafe called ‘We Demand the Truth from Roy Kim‘, or ‘RoJinYo‘.

However, most of the members who joined the cafe weren’t made up of antis, but rather curious passerbys. Not only so, but the cafe had originally been an ‘We Demand the Truth from IU‘, made after her photo controversy last year with Eunhyuk. The revelation caused netizens to lash out and comment, “You must really have nothing to do“, “What are you going to ‘demand the truth’ from next?“, and “These people need to get a life“.

Roy Kim’s label had also commented that the allegations of plagiarism were baseless.

Kim Soo Hyun revealed his secret to acting like an ‘idiot’.

His new movie ‘Secretly and Greatly‘ (also ‘Covertness‘) held its showcase on the 30th at Kunkook University in Seoul. Kim Soo Hyun plays a North Korean agent who disguises himself in South Korea. He has two completely different personas: savvy double agent and village idiot.

Kim Soo Hyun revealed, “To be honest, I was more worried about portraying the agent. I thought about how to meld in with the village people. Also, action school was hard. Since it’s physical action, my body hurt all over.

He added, “In this movie, it’s important to act like an idiot. More than that I researched how to act the idiot. I wondered how to bring it out from within me. To be honest, everyone has an idiot inside them. So I had a lot of fun.

The movie will be released on June 5th!
