2NE1’s Not Ugly Campaign – It’s A Beautiful Thing

Let’s admit it – there is no such thing as an ugly K-Pop idol. Even after they just wake up, idols look good, despite the fact that they think they look terrible. Remember Mir being woken up on Idol Army? Everyone in MBLAQ got a surprise wake-up call (I would be surprised too if someone was trying to shove a corndog in my face while I was asleep!), but Mir’s reaction at 0:29 was by far the funniest. Two words: “No makeup!!!!!”

Block B 1st Japanese Live Showcase ‘Do U Wanna B?’


Kyung – I Am the New Member of Soulflow [DOWNLOAD] + Lyrics

[AUDIO] Kyung – I Am the New Member of Soulflow [DOWNLOAD]

[LYRICS] Kyung – I Am the New Member of Soulflow

What I earned after failing twice
Isn’t breakdown but the refusal to give in, perseverance, poison, and determination
Every day, I go through hard-training
Time is tickin’
I listen every day, rehearse and rehearse
“Entered Soulflow! I’ll set it all on fire!”
My first goal, my first roar
So that all of my efforts won’t be wasted, won’t be bent
Even if obstacles come my way, I’ll keep looking forward
I’ll keep running, speeding up, accelerating every time
My family Soulflow, microphone, and rhyme notes
I’m stubborn with my route, my heart’s already beating
I’ve advanced, I am advancing, I’m going to do it, I’ll fight and improve
You have to change everything in order to fly
If you try to trick me, I’ll tell you to “shut your mouth”
I’m not going to let go of this opportunity
I’m going to try my best every day and keep pushing forward

Daesung’s Case Dismissed, Ruled Not Guilty

Big Bang’s Daesung has received a verdict of ‘not guilty’ in his court case regarding his car accident on May 31st.

After reviewing the case, prosecutors decided that there wasn’t enough hard evidence to determine whether or not the motorcyclist Hyun had been alive or deceased before Daesung ran him over with his vehicle. Also, they did not rule out the possibility that the motorcyclist, who was under the influence upon the time of his death, could’ve died from the initial collision with a streetlight.

Park Myung Soo, “GD, let’s perform again this winter”

G-Dragon and Park Myung Soo reunited as Team GG at 2NE1’s concert where they performed, “Having An Affair”, with Park Bom.

Rookie boy group changes their name due to VIPs’ opposition

The 5-member rookie group changed their group name to ‘BOYZ’ before their debut.

The members of the group are Enoch, Noah, Yudam, Junwon and Haru. Before they debut, they changed their name from ‘VIP’ to ‘BOYZ’.

Their agency explained the group has changed the name to ‘BOYZ’ although it was originally named ‘VIP’. It got the name because  the members are known by it on the internet. However, since it is the same as the name of the Big Bang’s fans, they have faced  a lot of opposition from Big Bang’s fan club. Therefore, they finally decided to change it to ‘BOYZ’
