Over the last week we revisited the good, the bad and the ugliest of boy band hairstyles throughout pop music history. Our look back at everything from Davy Jones and Ringo Starr’s trailblazing swoops to the fluctuating styles of Justin Timberlake during his ‘N Sync days left us with 32 of the all-time greatest boy band haircuts, and a healthy debate over what is considered today’s definitive heartthrob look, according to you, the fans. Now that March Madness is over, the time has come to crown a winner. Drumroll, please…

‘Superstar K3′ contestant Yuna Kim joins YG Entertainment

Superstar K3‘ contestant Yuna Kim has been revealed to have become a trainee under YG Entertainment.

An industry official revealed, “After being eliminated from ‘Superstar K3′, it’s known that she joined YG Entertainment as a trainee. She’s determined to become a singer in Korea, and despite having received love calls from other companies, she rejected them all for YG.”

Hailing from the States, Yuna Kim failed to make it into the ‘Top 10′. The official went on to explain, “Yuna Kim’s Korean is still not fluent yet so she was unfortunately eliminated for forgetting the lyrics in the middle of her audition. Considering that she is now under the training system of YG, we’re sure that she’ll grow to become a better singer.”

This is the third contestant YG Entertainment has brought under their wings from the ‘Superstar K’ series, with their other trainees being Kang Seung Yoon and Kim Eunbi from ‘Superstar K2′.

Could Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young get back together?

City Hunter‘ fans might possibly see the Lee Min HoPark Min Young couple together again as rumors are circulating that the two stars still meet frequently.

According to insiders, the two still talk on the phone together and send text messages often, in addition to meeting each other near their homes. The possibility of the two allegedly getting back together after their break up over two months ago is gaining much interest.

The two stars caught each others’ eye after filming for SBS‘ hit drama, ‘City Hunter’, in July, and broke off their relationship this past December. They released the news to the public belatedly in January, stating they are now just “encouraging colleagues” to one another.

However, rumors of an alleged reunion are now quietly arising. On April 3rd, one insider who is close to the two stated, “It was burdensome for the two to meet at places where there were a lot of fans or they would receive a lot of attention…Rather than a break-up [atmosphere], it’s a casual atmosphere where there’s no burden.
