He wrote, “I have a girlfriend. I believe a lot of you already know that. When I talked about my first love recently, the person I was talking about was Jun Sun Hye, a model four years my senior. Whenever I was going through a hard time or about to fall, she was always by my side and supported me to stand back up again. We’re a source of strength for each other and are meeting with good intentions. We make each other happy. I’m sorry to all of the fans that I’m surprising with this sudden piece of information. I think my girlfriend will be surprised as well that I’m writing a post like this.”

He continued, “I wanted to be closer with my fans but wasn’t able to because of small incidents and misunderstandings which upset me gravely. I was too embarrassed to smile at you all without telling you the truth. I want to show who I truly am now without hiding anything and be loved by my fans for who I am, Kim Yu Kwon.”

Concluding the message, he stated, “I’ll continue to show a more truthful and brighter image of myself to our fans. I promise to continue to work hard and improve as a member of Block B. I’m sorry to all of BBCs. And thank you.”

Sunggyu will be ending his promotions for “60 Seconds” this week.

MBC sitcom ‘What is Mom’ to be cancelled after just 2 months

MBC‘s Monday-Tuesday sitcom ‘What is Mom‘ has been officially discontinued.
According to one representative from the show, which aired its 24th episode on December 3rd, the program that will replace the sitcom’s time slot has yet to be decided.

The representative stated, “We decided today (December 5th) that MBC’s ‘What is Mom’ will be canceled. It’s been confirmed. We reported the discontinuation notice to the cast members, and we’ll be airing 3 more episodes, which have already been filmed.” He also added that the cast and crew of the sitcom were shocked by the sudden news of cancellation.

Another representative commented, “The sudden cancellation was shocking. We were beginning to receive praise from viewers, and to get the news for a project that just kicked off has been cancelled is dismaying.”

According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, ‘What is Mom’ scored an average of a 5% share in viewership ratings since its first broadcast on October 9th. 

The sitcom stars Na Moon Hee, Kim Suh Hyung, Ryu Seung Soo, Kim Byung Man, INFINITE‘s L, Yoo Yun Suk, Kim Sae Ron, Park Mi Sun, Park Jung Hak, Shin So Yool, and Hello Venus’ Ara.

The cancellation of “What Is Mom” angers staff members and fans

The sudden cancellation of ‘What is Mom‘ angered both the staff members and fans.

One of the members of the costume team took to Twitter to tweet, “We’re getting shut down? Getting shut down? After you pretended we were just taking a break from filming? I’m not just shocked, I’m cursing! Our team mood was so good! I heard rumors, but I doubted that it was true. And now we’re getting shut down. I haven’t even been told yet. Our director is also a victim. I don’t know about everyone, but most of the actors don’t know neither. This was all a one-sided decision from MBC.

One of the representatives from the actors’ side said, “We just heard the news today. We told the actors and they just took it quietly, but we are still shocked. We refused all other projects and focused on ‘What is Mom’, but this happened so we’re in shock.

It is not just the staff members that are angry at the sudden cancellation, but the fans as well. Fans of INFINITE‘s L said, “If they were going to cancel the show, they should have done it early on instead of dragging it out“, “I was hoping to see L until April of next year, but what’s this?“, and “I’m so mad at MBC right now“.

The cancellation of the sitcom came to be because the sitcom was moved from its usual time slot of 7:45 PM KST to 8:50 PM KST, dropping its ratings down to barely 5%. The last episode of ‘What is Mom’ will air on the 17th.

L’s manners toward women on ‘Hello’ draw praise from the audience

INFINITE‘s L earned the praise of the female members of the audience on ‘Hello‘.

He and Sunggyu were two of the guests on the 3rd’s episode of ‘Hello’. One of the guests complained that her husband cursed at her all the time. The husband explained himself by saying that that was how he showed his affections. However, L firmly pointed out, “You should never curse at women.

Also, when one of the female guests had a hard time getting up after coming down to slide to make her entrance, L rose immediately from his seat and helped her stand up. Although it’s common to see the male guests offer their hands to help the women out of the pool of plastic balls, L took it a step further by actually wading through the balls to reach the guest. The female audience cheered loudly for his manners, and Yewon, who was also one of the celebrity guests, said, “Sunggyu, you should get up and help her, too“. To this, Sunggyu replied that L’s manners were ‘only for business’, causing the audience to laugh.

Block B’s Kyung and P.O release full audio of “I’m Embarrassed, Don’t Laugh”

Block B‘s Kyung has released the full audio of “I’m Embarrassed, Don’t Laugh” featuring P.O!

On December 3rd, Kyung took to Block B’s fancafe to write,
Hello, it’s Park Kyung. I brought a surprise present today. It’s a song called, “I’m Embarrassed, Don’t Laugh” from our previous concert, but I couldn’t release the song because it wasn’t complete. Also, since it was created before, so I wanted to release it as a surprise ‘tada!’ with the filled in bridge, and a redone rap, but we couldn’t because of the time. I’m uploading the guide version that we did before. It’s getting chilly now, so be careful of catching a cold, and listen to this well. If you press the arrow on the right side, you can download it. Thank you ^^

Block B thanks fans on 600th day anniversary since debut

Block B has reached the 600th day since their debut!
To celebrate, the group took to Twitter to tweet, “It’s been 600 days since Block B debuted~ Thank you again and again to the fans who always support Block B ^^ Please support and love Block B as you do now! It’s been chilly lately, so be careful of catching a cold! Have a happy dream being with Block B today :)“.
A few minutes later, Taeil tweeted, “Everyone be healthy“, with a photo of pressure points on the hand. The tweet bewildered fans because of the randomness, but BBCs have concluded that he must have been trying to refer to the group’s tweet before about catching colds.
Kyung was next to tweet, with a selca of himself and writing, “600 days since debut ^.^“. Jaehyo followed soon after with, “Thank you so much for 600 days since our debut. I’m always apologetic and forever thankful. I love you~~~ BBC, I’ll run harder!!!” and attached a hilarious photo of his head photoshopped onto an ostrich that was running.
Congratulations to Block B and BBCs!

INFINITE’s Sunggyu reveals he likes wearing Sungjong’s underwear

INFINITE‘s Sunggyu confessed his unique underwear preferences.

On the December 3rd episode of KBS 2TV‘s ’Hello‘, Sunggyu was asked, “Is there a member who uses items belonging to the other members’?“, and he honestly confessed, “Sometimes I wear other people’s underwear without telling them“. The MCs were surprised by this confession, but asked, “Whose underwear do you like the most?“.

The question flustered Sunggyu for a bit, but he answered, “I like Sungjong‘s especially. His colorful underwear is my style“, causing the studio to explode into laughter.

Style Breakdown: Sunggyu’s “60 Seconds”

INFINITE‘s Sunggyu has made his debut with “60 Seconds“!  The lyrics of the song talk about a failed relationship that can be explained in just sixty seconds, and the video reflects the simplicity of the story with very simple, wearable fashion.
INFINITE’s L stars in the video as a guy who’s still struggling to get over his ex.  In the present-day scenes, he wears a wool moto jacket with leather sleeves, black jeans, and patterned boots.  And, of course, the all-important couple ring.  No wild hair or eyeliner here- he’s just a regular guy, wandering by the diner where his ex’s doppelganger works.
And here is that love interest, looking super cute in her oversized white sweater, patterned mini skirt, black tights, and black ankle boots.  You might notice that either everyone in this imaginary town carries the same umbrella, or the set decorators only bought one kind of umbrella, because the umbrellas in the stand by the door have the same handle as the one in L’s hand.
Throughout the video, we get to see flashbacks of L and his girlfriend’s better days.  Here, she wears a furry pink sweater with white, high-waisted pants, while he wears a denim shirt, red cardigan, and black pants.
In one of the flashback-to-the-good-ol’-days scenes, L and his girlfriend do some cooking.  She wears a wide-check, plaid jumper over a long sleeved black shirt, while he wears a faded tee shirt and a grandpa sweater with khakis.
L also remembers the day he gave his girlfriend the couple rings.  They sat in the dining room with coffee and absolutely nothing else on the table (not even coasters, guys? C’mon, that’s just irresponsible!) until she notices that he’s wearing a ring and asks about it, which is when he reveals a matching ring for her.  Aww.  She wears a ruffled white blouse, while he wears a military-inspired jacket and khakis.
And here we have the breakup.  Much like the outfit our heroine? is wearing in the restaurant, L’s girlfriend wears and oversized sweater, a mini skirt, black tights, and the exact same black ankle boots she was wearing at the beginning of the video.  L is dressed casually in a white shirt, grey, shawl neck cardigan, and khakis.  Maybe she just doesn’t like that you always wear khakis, L.  Things were going great when you wore black pants.
Poor girl, your shoes are going to get ruined!  We flash all the way back to when L and his girlfriend first met- the day he offered to share his umbrella with her in the pouring rain.  She wears a pink, polka-dot dress with a white, shawl-collar, fur-trimmed cardigan, black tights, and brown ankle boots.
And here’s L to save the day in his grey peacoat, black hoodie, and striped shirt.
Fans, fear not- Sunggyu does, in fact, make an appearance in his own video!  Here, he wears a scarf-patterned shirt with a blazer and red pants.
For the band scenes, Sunggyu goes all-out in a black jacquard suit, leather shirt, and metal collar, all of which make his newly-dyed red hair stand out even more than it already does.  I was kind of surprised he went for the red, since his style tends to be a little more low-maintenance than your average idol, but it’s a good look on him.

What did you think of “60 Seconds”?  Did you like the more down-to-earth fashion, or do you prefer your K-Pop fashion to be more bombastic?
