It was revealed that CNBLUE‘s Minhyuk is currently in talks to join the cast of the new KBS weekend drama, ‘You Who Rolled in Unexpectedly‘.
With the release of their new album just around the corner, hip hop idol group Block B is already facing numerous obstacles for their comeback.
KBS has deemed the tracks “Did You or Did You Not” and “LOL” as unfit for broadcast, stating “vulgar expressions” as the reason.
The broadcast station stated that “Did You or Did You Not” brings to mind the question people ask when referring to sex: “Did you do it, or not?” In their Korean title, “haet suh ahn haet suh”, ”haet suh” is derived from the Korean verb “to do”, on it’s own. (If it is used in conjunction with other words, the meaning is changed)
Meanwhile, “LOL” contains the word “ggondae” in the lyrics (which is usually used as a slang referring to elders with a negative connotation).
Many exciting TV Programs are scheduled for the Lunar New Year holiday and each major broadcasting station will be airing specials featuring idol stars. If you can’t spend the holidays with family and loved ones, then the TV can substitute and bring you laughs.
The Idol Trend
MBC will be hosting ‘The 4th Idol Star Athletics-Swimming Championship’. Hosting the program will be Kim Jae Dong, Boom, Lee Teuk, and anchorman Oh Sang Jin and many idols stars will be participating in the championships such as B2ST, T-ara, 4Minute, MBLAQ, Boyfriend, and Dal Shabet. Be sure to catch these idol stars competing against each other in games of athletics on January 24th.
Idol stars will also be appearing on MBC’s ‘Idol Alkkagi Championships’. The MCs for this program will be occupied by Kim Gura, Boom, and anchorman Kim Jung Geun. Idols like Super Junior, SHINee, SISTAR, and miss A will be participating in the program along with first generation old school idols like HOT’s Moon Hee Jun and Tony An and Roo’ra’s Go Young Wook.
After teasing fans with two different posters, one with the main characters and the other with the full cast, KBS‘s ‘Dream High 2‘ has returned with its third and final cut.
Once again, the image features the six main characters: Kang Sora, 2AM‘s Jinwoon, SISTAR‘s Hyorin, T-ara‘s Jiyeon, and new actors JB and Park Seo Joo.
As with the first poster, four of the students were dressed in luxurious outfits, which belie a sense of privilege not found with Kang Sora and Jinwoon’s characters. In fact, Kang Sora and Jinwoon are seen in casual outfits, as if to emphasize their ‘underdog’ appeal.
The contrast between these two groups was further emphasized by the poster’s tagline, which read: ’The most problematic Kirin Arts High School students VS. The best idols“.
A few days ago it was revealed that MBLAQ would become new dads for KBS joy’s ‘Hello Baby‘ Season 5.
A Lunar New Year special variety program featuring an idol sageuk (historic) comedy is currently in the works.
KBS has revealed that the program will be called, “The Crown Princess Project – Restoring The Royal Family” and will air as a Lunar New Year special. “The Crown Princess Project” is being called the idol version of “The Moon Embracing The Sun” and will be in a sageuk format with a comedic twist.
Many female idol stars have been cast for this special program since it will be based on a story of how a crown princess is chosen through a series of tests given by the royal family in the Choseon era.
Some of the female idols that will star in this program include IU, T-ara’s Boram and Soyeon, miss A’s Min, 4minute’s Sohyun and more. It is said that a total of 12 female idols will appear in this program. The production staff revealed that the program will be filmed outdoors. They are hoping that the female idols will be lively and energetic since they won’t be in a stuffy studio all day. The production staff are also expecting a lot of interest because the female idols will be wearing beautiful hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) dresses.
A new still cut featuring the six leading members of KBS’s upcoming drama, ‘Dream High 2‘, has finally been unveiled!
Aside from Jung Jinwoon and Kang Sora, who are seen facing the viewer, the rest have their backs turned towards the audience to raise anticipation for what’s to come.
The ‘Kirin Arts High School’ uniforms have undergone a few changes, like the use of red and checker patterns. Fans already know that Jiyeon and Hyorin are the remaining two girls, but word on who the two boys at the side are has not been revealed.
Producers are purposely keeping their identity a secret to exclusively reveal at the drama’s production conference.
