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?

Rock band Deli Spice was featured on the November 13th episode of Mnet‘s ‘Mic‘ to talk about their music and various subjects.
When member Yoon Junho was asked which female idols were currently his favorite, he responded with, “There are so many these days. They’re all so talented now. They have strong vocals and all of them can dance extremely well, too. The first female idol group to make me feel that way was 2NE1. Maybe that’s why… but I think they definitely stand out as the best female idol group out there“.
He continued, “I feel like they were grouped not only for their looks, but for their individuality and they work well together as a unit.”
Deli Spice is one of the few that represent Korean rock bands. They debuted in 1997 with their first album ‘Deli Spice‘. Their hit songs included “Chow Chow“, and “Confession“.

On an episode of Mnet‘s ‘Wide Entertainment News‘ that aired on the 27th, the topic of who could be the next greatest MC to fill the shoes of legendary Kang Ho Dong was discussed.
The celebrity at the top of the ‘high energy’ list? None other than Big Bang‘s maknae, Seungri. He was chosen for his intense vivacity, others on the list were Leessang‘s Gary, Seo In Young & comedian Park Myung Soo.
Seungri’s speaking abilities rivals Kang Ho Dong and he’s remarkably popular and even has his own sights on running a business. When he was a guest star on ‘Strong Heart‘, he made everyone on set explode in laughter as he spoke, and he and the rest of Big Bang are becoming increasingly popular not only in Korea but overseas as well, enough to be called the faces of this Hallyu wave. Seungri has plans to open an academy in Junrado, Gwangju, Daejun and even one in China.
This is an account of the recording for the pictures you saw here.
The second day of the recording (held on August 3rd) kicked off with the opening in front of a Hotel in Youngdeungpo, Seoul. It was great and everything until it started raining. The first day featured a girl group (Rania) so I was just kind of whatever, but I anticipated a lot more on the second day because producers said it would be a boy group.
Mnet’s Boom The K-POP analyzed just how popular B2ST is in Japan. Japanese fans seemed to love Korean beastly idols rather than cute Japanese idols.
A survey titled, “What animal resembles the members of B2ST?” was held in Shin-Okubo, the center of Korean Wave in Japan.
Fans compared wild Du Jun with a lion, cool and handsome Joon Hyung with a wolf, childish Gi Kwang with a puppy, and cute Yo Seop with a chick.
However, the members of the B2ST compared Yo Seop with a sparrow and Hyun Seung with a sloth.
