When they were asked which female artist that they wanted to go on a vacation with, to this Taeyang answered,"This is a hard question. I don't have any, if there was I would say the name out loud" then he picked Tablo's daughter, Haru and said,"I wanted to have an ice-cream date with Haru but she was sick...If I have a chance I want to go and play with her".

Seungri then chose A Pink and said,"Personally I like everyone in A Pink. This is my first time saying this. I also saw the choreography for "Mr.Chu" and even sang and danced to the song.

MBC declares 'no more lip sync'

Posted: 05 Jul 2014 02:30 AM PDT



The chief executive producer of MBC's 'Show! Music Core' released a statement expressing the new protocol on performing on the show.

MBC declared that they will ask the idols to sing a real live stage performance. This means that MBC will not allow any idol performer to depend solely on MR (music recorded).  In other words, the performers will not be given permission to lip-sync. 

KPop performances are more often than not dance-oriented, which will surely make this new protocol a challenge to the performers because singing and dancing are hard to do simultaneously. Some are willing to grab the opportunity to showcase their singing prowess, some may be thinking twice and pointing out that a total eradication of MR and/or lip-sync is not necessary. 

The question now is, will this shift have a good effect on KPop industry? That is something we need to look forward to.

Jaejoong is fully-supported by his international fans for his drama 'Triangle'

Posted: 05 Jul 2014 02:00 AM PDT



JYJ's Jaejoong is currently receiving so much love from his fans because of his great portrayal of his character in MBC's drama 'Triangle.'

C-jes Entertainment proudly announced that his international fans are giving what they can just to show their support for Jaejoong. Fans from China, Japan and Taiwan visited the set of 'Triangle' personally. Chinese fans used their own money just to buy the promotional video slots in their subway stations. These acts are just proofs that Jaejoong is a well-known and talented Hallyu star.

'Triangle' is top-billed by Lee Bum Soo, JYJ's Kim Jaejoong, and ZE:A's Im Siwan. Its story revolves on the three brothers played by Lee Bum Soo as the eldest named Jang Dong-soo, Jaejoong as Jang Dong-chul is the middle brother, and the youngest is Siwan's character named as Jang Dong-woo. The three were unfortunately separated when they were young after their parents were killed in an accident. After twenty years, they meet again without knowing their connection with each other.

Jang Dong-soo (Lee Bum-soo) became a detective just like his father, and is searching for his two younger siblings. Jang Dong-chul (Kim Jaejoong) became a leader of a gang and uses Heo Young-dal as his other name. Jang Dong-woo (Im Siwan) has no memory of his biological family, but was adopted by a wealthy chaebol family, so he uses the name Yoon Yang-ha.

'Triangle' airs on MBC every Monday and Tuesday at 22:00 KST.
