Super Junior Heechul is moved to tears by Donghae's letter?

Posted: 12 May 2013 05:00 AM PDT




Super Junior Heechul shared a story about how Donghae's letter made him cry while he's serving in the military.

On May 10, Heechul talked about fellow member Donghae in Sungdong Cafe wherein he is DJing as a part of his duty.

He revealed that he was touched by Donghae's letter. He shared, "I stayed only one month in Military Training Camp that's why I didn't miss my family that much. But when I received a letter from Donghae, I really shed tears. When I'm about to open the letter, I have this annoyed expression 'Ah really!', because his handwriting is really bad and messy. I think he can't even read his own handwriting. Moreover, he didn't even bother to put it in an envelope so I received it in roll. He also use a recycled paper. At the back of the paper is a SUKIRA script. People told me that he doesn't have any effort but I understand Donghae well. I know him that's why I was really touched."

Donghae is sure a sweet dongsaeng, isn't he?

Psy: Being a 'herpes' is cool

Posted: 11 May 2013 08:00 PM PDT




Recently, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong posted on his Instagram a photo of PSY with a caption and I quote, "This dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it's gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway"


It drew two opposing opinions from the netizens who were able to read the post. Some are for Psy and some are against him.
But the comment that will matter most is from Psy himself. He gave his reaction regarding the comparison between him and 'herpes' on his recent interview in FUSE. 
At first, Psy didn't have the idea about 'herpes', but the kind host, Elaine Moran, elucidated that it was a disease that keeps on coming back. 
Psy took the obvious insult lightly and said, "I should say something to him, what's his name? I kind of like it. It's cool! He's saying I'm like herpes, that I keep coming back. I think it's really cool. And I appreciate that. Thank you."
