  • Does Girl’s Day‘s Yura have beef with miss A‘s Suzy or did she just get photographed at an unfortunate angle? You decide.
  • The bullying incident may never leave T-ara. The group had to pay a big fine to the fashion company Chatelaine.
  • So JYP Entertainment and JYP merged into one company. I honestly didn’t even know they were separate companies. You can read the detailed explanation here.

The SNS photo of the week goes to Kim Hee Chul and his date with his label dongseng Sulli. It’s good to see Heechul back and it’s good to see the SM members having good relationships with each other. 

Also, check out Taeyeon‘s sexy photo and Lee Jun Ki pulling off the long wig. For more SNS goodness, check out our K-Pop Instagram gallery

Next…Step aside idols, it’s time for some healing music.

The music video of the week goes to Drunken Tiger‘s “The Cure.” It’s been awhile since I’ve heard Yoon Mi Rae‘s voice sound sweet like that, I almost didn’t recognize it. Also, with so many “swag” centered K-Rap songs in Korea, the song’s message was refreshing to listen to.

Other notable music videos: 


  • In other music news, Stardom Entertainment will be debuting a 13 member boy band. Hopefully they did learn from their Block B incident and we won’t see any more boy bands suing their label.

This week’s fashion pictorial goes to miss A and their spunky look for MLB Korea. Check out Suzy’s commercial too. She’s gorgeous!

Next…This is a nice poster, a very nice poster. 

  • Reply 1994” revealed its first poster. Think it will be as good as the first one?
  • Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA and Lee Bum Soo are considering leading together in an upcoming drama. Big age gap but maybe it can work considering the “Sound of Music” premise
  • Are you watching “Master’s Sun” and following the Soompi recap? The most recent episode had so many gasp worthy moments! 

In variety news…

  • With two new couples “We Got Married” had a very big press conference. You can read about what the producer and the couples had to say about each other.
  • If you hate change like me, you can read about last week’s episode of “We Got Married.” I am not ashamed to admit that I cried…like a baby.
  • Clara Ha turned down the “SebakwiMC role so the producers decide to do temporary MCs for now. SHINee‘s Key and A Pink‘s Jung Eun Ji will lead the list of guest MCs.
