Well, I suppose it isn’t totally out of line, considering that Lee Yeon-hee, who is managed by SM Entertainment, was almost in Girls Generation back in her training days.

by | February 2, 2009 | 20 Comments
Honestly, I just really like that picture. Rising actress Seo Hyo-rim (The World They Live In) takes a lead role in idol band FT Island’s music video alongside the band’s drummer Choi Min-hwan, seven years her junior (she’s 24, he’s 17). The actress takes the title character of the MV’s “Bad Woman,” which is a... More »

by | December 6, 2008 | 17 Comments
Pop star Hyori is designing her own T-shirt. And I use the word “designing” loosely. The shirt is to commemorate her upcoming concert(s) on the 19th and 20th (her first since going solo) and will be presented to all the concertgoers as an expression of Hyori’s appreciation. And when I raise a skeptical eyebrow to... More »

Although actor Lee Seon-kyun is often referred to as The Voice (by us fans, I mean), I didn’t really expect to see him take up singing — not in an official capacity, at least — but here he is, lending his vocals to a track on Yoon Sang‘s upcoming special album, “Songbook.” Yes, Lee Seon-kyun...
