Daesung shares his feelings on his comeback

Daesung, who recently made a comeback with the MBN drama, What’s Up after seven-month long hiatus, shared his thoughts on his comeback at a press conference for the drama held on December 6 in Seoul.

When asked to share his feelings about making a comeback, he answered, “While taking a break, I thought about what I’ve done up to date and what I should do in the future. And I wanted to make an official appearance like this to make an apology to everybody.”

Daesung went into hiatus since his involvement in a speeding accident that resulted in the death of a motorcyclist in May. The Big Bang member returned to the entertainment industry with the role of Ha Do Sung in the drama. His comeback and his first acting attempt have been drawing a lot of attention and support from his fans.

Daesung continued, “I thought I should return and show my better side. I’ve been nervous and worried under the pressure that I had to please people.” “Due to my activities, I often missed out on classes. And thanks to this role, I got to have direct experience in school life. I enjoyed shooting since the fellow cast members are about the same age as me and our lifestyles are similar.”

Which SNSD member was jealous of Seohyun’s coupling with Jung Yong Hwa for ‘We Got Married’?

On December 8th, the ladies of SNSD were the guest on Mnet‘s “Beatles Code” and was asked if any member was ever jealous of another member.

To that question SNSD’s Taeyeon answered, “I was also a guest on MBC’s ‘We Got Married’ but the man I was married to was a totally different person. It’s hard to be on a variety show with friends that have similar ages so I was quite jealous of Seohyun”.

Seohyun and CN BLUE‘s Jong Yong Hwa got together as a fictional couple and were one of the most popular couples on ‘We Got Married’. They were labeled the “Sweet Potato Couple”, however, back in 2009, Taeyeon was paired up with old comedian Jung Hyung Don and they were known as the “Pudding and Jelly Couple”.

It seems Taeyeon wanted to have a husband that was young and handsome like Jong Yong Hwa. If you were on the show who would you want to be paired up with?

T-ara’s Soyeon talks about her new role as leader

Recently, we reported that Soyeon had replaced Hyomin as the leader of T-ara. Since it’s her first time taking charge in the group, Soyeon was understandably worried about her new role.

“Honestly, I feel stressed and I have a lot of heavy thoughts,” she confessed. “Hyomin, who came before me, did such a good job boosting T-ara’s popularity; I feel a responsibility to continue developing the team since I’m older than her.”

“T-ara’s leader doesn’t just look down from on high, but works at the lowest level, doing the menial jobs,” Soyeon said. “I will always perform my duties as one of the members.”

Soyeon revealed that this isn’t the first time she’s found herself in a position of power. “When I was in elementary school, I was the class president for five years,” she noted. “Since I don’t have any siblings, I like socializing with other people. I’ll use this skill to act as the intermediary.”
