T-ara speak up about their bullying scandal for the first time, Jiyeon apologizes to Hwayoung

Posted: 06 May 2013 08:33 AM PDT

The members of T-ara N4 talked about their bullying scandal and various other rumors for the first time on broadcast.

The girls were guests on the May 6 episode of Mnet‘s ‘Beatles Code 2‘. Hyomin was the first to speak up, and she said, “There were rumors that I was a thug when I went to school. I just hung out with kids who weren’t the nicest kids, but that was it. There are also rumors that I was forced to move schools because I had hit another student. I never hit anyone. I’d rather someone come out and say that I hit them.” Hyomin revealed that she had moved schools, but it wasn’t because she had hit someone. She explained, “My mom decided that I should switch schools because she wanted to pursue a better education for me. It’s not related to violence at all. The reason why I didn’t say anything back then was because I didn’t want people to look down on my friends because of me.

The girls also admitted that they had an argument with Hwayoung during the SNS controversy. However, Eunjung asserted that there was no bullying, saying, “People might think so if you just read everything that’s online. But even I was rumored to being bullied. To be honest, we had an argument with Hwayoung for about 2 days during the incident. But it was wrong of us to publicly make statements through Twitter. It was wrong to write about the topic, period. The more we stayed silent, the rumors and misunderstandings kept growing. It was so bad that even we were getting confused. I thought I’d lived without any regrets, but I was pained because I felt I’d become a bad person.

On all the hate comments they received, Eunjung said, “Whenever articles about us come out, we get a ton of hate comments. At first, I just read it out of curiosity… but I can’t read it anymore because the more I read, the more energy I lose.

Hyomin added, “The worst one was when Soyeon unni got into a car accident, and someone wrote, ‘she should have just died’. There were others who said the entire accident was made up. It was such a bad accident that she got tossed out of the car.

On their ‘Music Bank‘ controversy, Hyomin spoke up to say, “After we argued in Japan, we had a ‘Music Bank’ schedule right away. It was so awkward. After we came back to Korea, we had a conversation with Hwayoung for about 40 minutes. I didn’t want to have fights when it was a stage we were dreaming of. After Hwayoung left, we had an official schedule, but we couldn’t say anything because of the circumstances. We wanted to say something so badly that it even came out in our dreams. I just wanted to say two things: ‘I’m sorry, and I’ll work harder’. But if we tried to explain ourselves back then, the situation would have just gotten worse. But we really wanted to. We wanted to admit the parts that were true, that they weren’t false, and then take time off to self reflect. But in the end, we just became the kids who didn’t care.

Jiyeon also apologized to Hwayoung and said, “We had been together for over 3 years, so Hwayoung might have had difficulties being with us. She probably had a hard time adjusting. If we truly hated her, we wouldn’t have even argued. But we disappointed her and made her feel lonely. No matter the reason, we’re sorry and also apologize to have created a disturbance as public figures.

YG Family is ‘forever fresh’ with Will Smith and Jaden Smith

Posted: 06 May 2013 07:34 AM PDT

2NE1‘s CL has been meeting up a lot of foreign stars lately, and the next up was none other than Will Smith and his son, Jaden Smith!

She posted 2 photos onto her Instagram with the Smith family. The first one was a solo cut of herself and the two Smiths, and she wrote, “foreverfresh!!!“, alluding to Will Smith’s famous role from ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘.

The second photo shows Big Bang members such as T.O.P and Taeyang, along with YG Entertainment CEO Yang Hyun Suk. She wrote, “familyfamilyfamily” onto her Instagram along with the photo.

[Spoiler] Who is the most popular member of ‘Dad, Where Are We Going’?

Posted: 06 May 2013 04:00 AM PDT

The dads of the father-son (and daughter) variety program, ‘Dad, Where Are We Going‘ went through a popularity contest on the show’s latest episode.

Although the vote would’ve been harrowing in the first place, it was made even more so by the fact that the kids were the ones who would be voting. Although one might think that each child would vote for his or her own father, the results didn’t live up to expectations.

The most popular father was Yoon Min Soo with a total of four votes, while the least popular was Kim Sung Joo, with an embarrassing grand total of zero. The loss was especially disheartening, as all fathers who scored less than two votes had to suffer a punishment by going out on the sea before dawn.

However, there was a surprise twist: Yoon Hoo and Sung Joon were revealed to have rigged (?) the voting beforehand by agreeing to pick each others’ fathers. Therefore, one vote each was removed from the total – which led to all of the fathers except Yoon Min Soo having to undergo the pre-dawn punishment.

Check out the full episode below (segment starts towards the end of the first video)!

A new soloist, a group debut, or a comeback, “Who’s Next?” at YG Entertainment?

Posted: 05 May 2013 10:47 PM PDT

The master of trolling who operates YG Entertainment‘s SNS channels is at it again, releasing yet another ambiguous teaser.

A short while ago, YGE’s Official Twitter tweeted the above poster along with,  ”[WHO'S NEXT?]“. No other information was provided… of course, though that hasn’t stopped speculations. Given the number of delayed YGE releases, the poster could refer to Kang Seung Yoon‘s debut album, 2NE1‘s much-delayed comeback, or Taeyang‘s new solo release.

The fact that the 2NE1 text is larger than the other text on the poster is getting much interest. However, we also see that CL, who has as yet to release solo album/single since her is listed alongside Bom, Seungri, G-Dragon, Taeyang, Daesung, and T.O.P, who have all released solo work. Thus, fueling speculation that the poster is referring to a CL solo album, particularly since she mentioned working on her solo in a recent interview.

One can’t forget the sidelined new girl group, who after a few random teasers seemed to have gone back into hibernation. Whatever the case, the teaser has done it’s job in getting people waiting with anticipation for YGE to make their May 28th revelation.

Fans who saw the tweet flooded YGE’s twitter with interesting mathematical analysis and speculations including: “2+0+1+3+0+5+2+8=21“, “Dying for 2ne1 comeback just like everyone else!! but I’ll gladly take Kang Seung Yoon debut as well. My prince <3“, “It would be YG himself coming back… duhhhh!“, “Even you don’t know who’s next. lol“.

Who do YOU think the teaser is for?

Crayon Pop ditch tracksuits in favor of sexy tights for comeback?

Posted: 05 May 2013 10:20 PM PDT

Two weeks ago, rumors began swirling of a possible Crayon Pop comeback. Looks like there was truth in those rumors as Chrome Entertainment has just released the group’s first comeback teaser.

Chrome revealed the above image with the tweet, “Here is Crayon Pop’s comeback concept teaser” earlier today. No other information was provided leaving fans to fret about when exactly the girls would return.

Especially since the last teaser mentioned ‘Summer 2013′, we can’t be sure just how soon this comeback will be, though it looks like the girls won’t be returning with another cute song. The girls look to be ditching their trademark ’bright colored tracksuits’ for what appears to be opaque stockings. Thus, he possibilities of a sexy concept are high.

Will you miss the cute, spunky Crayon Pop or are you looking forward to their sexy transformation?
