Tall boy group X-5 has Big expectations

Idol group X-5 is working hard to develop their own unique appeals.

The boys garnered a lot of attention for their dashing good looks and their tall height even before their debut, but they feel that simply isn’t enough. Different from their innocent and pure image, the boys are extremely intense and determined. The members are usually extremely playful and love to joke around, but they were quite genuine and focused for their interview with OSEN.

Every week, there is a new group that debuts on a music program. There are also a lot of boy groups that have been emerging. We are constantly on our toes (Gun).”

This seems to be their motto, and the area they are most concerned with is their performances. Because of their tall height (average height of 6’1″), their dance moves can come across as awkward but the boys are working hard to put on flawless performances for their fans. While they were still trainees, the boys rehearsed their dance routines with sand bags in their pockets in order to perfect the moves.

Donghae and Son Eun Seo are seen holding hands on a double date

Super Junior member Donghae was recently spotted holding hands with Son Eun Seo. This comes after the news a few weeks ago that Donghae was one of the Super Junior members being considered as part of a new couple for ‘We Got Married’.

On January 19th, an online community board featured a posting titled, “Donghae and Son Eun Seo’s Amusement Park Date.”

In the photo, Donghae and Son Eun Seo are seen on a double date at an amusement park with ‘We Got Married’s couple Leeteuk and Kang Sora. Both couples were seen holding hands regardless of the large number of onlookers.

Netizens have responded with, I can’t believe you are already holding hands… Oppa..” , “I guess they have officially been recruited as a couple on ‘We Got Married’.


Big Bang and JYJ, most wanted on TV for Lunar New Year holiday

An online lecture website conducted a survey on “Which boy bands are most wanted on TV during the Lunar New Year’s holiday?”. The survey had 1173 participants.

The survey results placed Big Bang at first place with 556 votes which was 48% of all the votes. JYJ came in second with 173 votes (15% of all the votes).

It was commented that, “It has been a long time since Big Bang appeared on TV. Even at the music awards ceremonies held at the end of the year, Big Bang did not make an appearance, because of some problems. Therefore, the fans are hoping to see the group at least during the Lunar New Year’s day.”

Also, for JYJ, it was said that, “Because it is only possible to see JYJ on commercials here and there and at their concerts, the fans’ hope to see them on TV is growing.”
