A total of ten photos – representing Super Junior, JYJ, Big Bang, 2PM, SHINee, BEAST, MBLAQ, Infinite, UKISS, and FT Island – have been humoring netizens and fans alike.
While no one specific member comes to mind in most photos, Seungri’s face jumps out in Big Bang’s representation, while Wooyoung and Lee Hong Ki’s features are dominant in 2PM and FT Island’s photos respectively.
Those who’ve seen the photos commented, “JYJ is really handsome,” “This is why they are idols…Even their appearances blended-in look amazing,” “It must have been labor-intensive photoshopping all thirteen faces for the Super Junior photo.”

MBLAQ‘s Lee Joon will be making a cameo appearance on SBS‘s new drama, ‘Salaryman Cho Han Ji‘!
Lee Joon already filmed his scene on December 11th, playing the role of the idol boyfriend of Jung Ryeowon‘s character, ‘Yeochi’. Though the scene was of a lover’s spat, Lee Joon and Jung Ryeowon were able to quickly close the gap of their first meeting and comfortably deliver their roles. Lee Joon even took sel-cas with Ryeowon like a real boyfriend when she was off practicing her script.
Staff recount that when Lee Joon was asked to sound arrogant and greasy by the director, the idol immediately launched into a parody of actor Choi Min Soo‘s voice, calling out, “Yeochi-ya~~~~”.
The scene also required that Jung Ryeowon spray water on his face. Clearly showing hesitation in the act, the director asked her to go all out with the scene, asking her to slap his face with the water if she had to. Lee Joon went with the flow and made no mistakes or NGs, even throwing down his personal luxury sunglasses when asked.
MBLAQ‘s maknae Mir revealed to his fans that he hangs out with INFINITE‘s Woohyun through a special photo.
On December 17th, Mir updated his Twitter with a selca and a caption that read, “This is the first time, I’m taking a photo with Woo Hyun…”
With both idols born in 1991 and in related fields, it seems like they managed to forge a friendly relationship.
Fangirls ogled over the photo as they commented, “Wah, so cute!“, “You two are so adorable, especially Mir’s friend“, and “Please take a photo with Shinee Taemin next *O*”

MBLAQ member Mir recently participated in ‘Dream of Koika‘, a new volunteer project that was launched by MBC.
Mir was at the press conference that was held at the MBC headquarters on November 16th, and he remarked, “I didn’t really understand what people meant when they said giving and sharing will bring you more joy, but I understand now after having participated in this event.”
“My family owns a lot of land, and we’ve never had to worry about any money problems. I thought I was genuinely happy but when I went to Peru, I realized that I wasn’t. I was sharing the chocolate bars with the Peruvian children and when I saw that they were saving some to take back to their family members, there was so much that went through my mind. I honestly feel like they have helped me more than I have helped them, and there’s a lot of different things I felt and realized during my time there. If there is ever another opportunity like this, I will make sure to go again. I want to see and learn so much more,” he said.
Mir traveled to Peru to volunteer along with fellow member G.O., as well as Kim Hojin, Park Boyoung, Park Jungah, and DJ Koo. The group traveled to Peru on September 14th where they volunteered and offered their services for two weeks. They help build clean bathrooms, aided medical care to the citizens, and promoted Korean culture with events like Tae Kwon Do performances.
MBLAQ‘s Seungho and Mir are drawing interesting responses to their latest selca.
On November 14th, Seungho tweeted, “Rapper brothers” before attaching the photo above.
Both Seungho and Mir are seen dressed in simple shirts and accessories, which highlight their masculine style. But what drew the most interest was their spiky, gold-toned hairstyles, causing many netizens to exclaim that they looked like ‘Saiyans’ from ‘Dragon Ball Z’.
“It’s the Saiyan hairstyle!“, and “You two look like twins! So hot +.+”, netizens laughed.
MBLAQ and A-Pink have been chosen for an upcoming KBS variety show. This show will highlight various endangered species by having the idols take care of endangered animals for about a month.
The program will help raise public consciousness towards the often dire situations of these endangered animals, which in turn will raise awareness for environmental causes. Lesser-known animals will be given a chance to shine; baby alligators are candidates for the featured species.
Although the show is to be situated in the competitive time slot of Saturday evenings, KBS hopes to attract viewers through the show’s unique concept.
This new environmentally focused show has a tentative debut date of November 12th.

MBLAQ‘s Mir sparked worry from his fans a while ago after he revealed that he will temporarily stop updating his Twitter account, along with other internet monitoring.
Earlier today, Mir posted a Twitter update saying, “Shortly, we will stop everything, good luck.”, confusing the fans on what it meant. However, to clear things out, Mir updated his official homepage with a long message dedicated to his fans.
At the beginning of his update, Mir apologized to everyone for worrying his fans when he mentioned that he will stop everything via Twitter today. He went on to reveal that, “I become weak to myself endlessly, I don’t know why but the world go well except me, and I feel I’m left alone.”
He also explained that when he was training to become an idol, he had a thought that if he became a singer, he wouldn’t have the hard work and agony. However, Rain told him that he would be happier during their training and this made him realize that Rain was right. Mir also went on to state that, “After your debut, it would really be so hard and need to think a lot because of one thing and another. So, you must learn how to overcome those things for yourself.”
The combined photos of idol groups is fast becoming a big hit on the internet. (From top to bottom: Female- f(x), SNSD, T-ara. Male- SHINee, MBLAQ, JYJ)
The photos above were posted on an online community board under the title, “Idols average looks.”
On the board, there were photos of JYJ, SHINee, 2pm, and MBLAQ and among female idol groups there were T-ara, f(x), and SNSD.
The poster stated, “Most them are good looking people, so naturally most photos came out nicely, but there are some groups that look quite unique.”
Lee Joon, member of power group MBLAQ, is taking his acting career a step further with his recently acquired role in SBS‘s new drama, “Fly Again.” Fans will not have to wait long, as the drama is set to air in the very first month of 2012.
Lee Joon will be evoking the role of a member of Incheon Airport’s air traffic control unit. His character is named named Kang Dongsoo, a man with a warm heart but strict demeanor. Goo Hyesun, of “Boys Over Flowers” fame, will be portraying the lead actress role of a co-pilot striving to become a full-fledged pilot.
Lee Joon’s role in “Fly Again” will serve to add to his growing list of acting experiences. He previously appeared in the Hollywood movie “Ninja Assassin,” playing a younger version of superstar Rain’s character. Following “Ninja Assassin”, Lee Joon’s acting resume was further enhanced by appearances in dramas, namely MBC’s “Stay-At-Home Mom Kim KwangJa’s Third Gathering” and KBS‘s “Jungle Fish 2.”
Although a leading man for “Fly Again” has yet to be cast, a company representative has ensured, “We will complete the basic outline in two weeks.” The drama is set to air on Wednesdays and Thursdays after the series “A Deep-Rooted Tree.” KBS will reveal the pilot episode on January 4th.
