Starship Planet to perform “White Love” for the first time on ‘M! Countdown’

Late last month, Starship Entertainment labelmates K. Will, SISTAR‘s Soyu, and Boyfriend‘s Jeongmin collaborated for a festive Christmas single titled ‘White Love‘.

Fans will be happy to hear that the trio will be having a special stage on this week’s episode of ‘M! Countdown‘ of the chart topping hit!

INFINITE H to release album in January + appear on December 20th’s ‘M! Countdown’

January is almost here, which means a brand new year, and! the promised sub-unit promotions for INFINITE H!

As fans of INFINITE already know, the two rappers of the group, Hoya and Dongwoo, were said to be releasing their own album in the upcoming new year. Not much had been revealed about the sub-unit since then with Woollim Entertainment even once stating that they could not reveal who would be in the sub-unit, which seemed a little pointless since Simon D had already let the cat out of the bag as he spoke about producer Primary working on Hoya and Dongwoo’s upcoming release!

However, for all the eager fans, more good news have been revealed since then as it has been reported that INFINITE H (H stands for Hip Hop, by the way) will be kicking off their promotions in January!

A representative from the group’s agency informed ‘Star News’, “Fans’ interest is already running high after hearing about the two’s unit at INFINITE’s concert… We will be bringing out music that will be able to bring to light the special charms of INFINITE H. Through this unit activity, INFINITE’s musical spectrum will be broadened.” 

The duo have been hard at work preparing for their new activities and have decided on January as the release period for their album, which has been produced by the respected producer Primary.

Ahead of their album release, the boys are said to be taking the stage of the 20th’s (today’s) ‘M! Countdown‘ to showcase their first performance! ‘Star News’ also commented that Hoya and Dongwoo will also be acting as the double MCs, so it seems we maybe seeing the two take on the broadcast as hosts and performers as well!

Stay tuned to for updates!

MBLAQ‘s Mir confessed of a lie that he once told to his mother.

On the December 18th episode of Strong Heart‘, he confessed, “There’s a lie I told my mother. She always tells me that she wishes I would have savings of 1 billion KRW (approximately $932,000 USD). One time on the phone, I told her, ‘I think I’m going to reach around 1 billion KRW because of MBLAQ’s South American Tour’. She suddenly screamed and hung up on me. I found out that she called everyone and invited them to go on shopping spree because I had 1 billion KRW.

Unfortunately he didn’t have 1 billion KRW.

Mir continued, “She still thinks I have 1 billion KRW. I want to say now that it’s not true. But I do have a lot of money saved up, so I promise to save up to 1 billion KRW in my savings and give it to you.

INFINITE’s Sunggyu reveals he once drank all night

INFINITE‘s Sunggyu shared that he once drank from dusk until dawn.

On the December 19th ‘year-end health watch special’ of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Vitamin‘, Sunggyu revealed, “I’ve drank alcohol for 12 hours straight before.”

He continued, “When I was 20, alcohol was interesting, so I wanted to drink it. And then I went to a party [with my coworkers from] my part-time job. I’m not sure what happened, but I remember that I drank until 11AM the next day.”

The studio was surprised by the idea of an idol star drinking so much when Yoon Jung Soo suddenly added, “Whenever I drink, I urinate in public. I really had to go, so I just thought that I was spreading fertilizer on the road.”
The hosts of ‘Vitamin’ then asked Sunggyu, “Do idols do that too?” He answered, “Though I don’t recall, I probably did that once as well,” causing laughter.

7인 남성 아이돌 그룹 인피니트(김성규 장동우 남우현 호야 이성열 엘 이성종)가 내년 초 첫 유닛 활동을 펼친다.

인피니트 멤버 동우와 호야는 힙합 유닛 '인피니트H'를 결성, 내년 1월 첫 선을 보인다. 팀 내 랩 파트를 맡고 있는 동우와 호야는 오랜 기간 유닛을
준비해 왔다.

인피니트 측 관계자는 스타뉴스에 "미리 인피니트 콘서트에서 둘의 유닛 소식을 예고한 만큼 팬들
사이 관심이 뜨겁다"며 "인피니트H 특유의 매력을 살린 음악을 선보일 예정이다. 유닛 활동으로 인피니트의 음악적 스펙트럼을 넓힐 것"이라 전했다.

팬들 사이 큰 관심을 받아온 인피니트H는 바쁜 스케줄 속에서 유닛 앨범을 준비하다 내년 1월로 음반 발매일을 정했다. 그룹 활동과는 다른 새로운 분위기가 될 전망이다.

인피니트H란 팀명은 인피니트 힙합의 약자로, 힙합음악을 위주로 하는 팀이다.

인피니트H의 음악 파트너로는 힙합신 실력파 프로듀서 프라이머리가 나섰다. 올해 다이나믹 듀오, 박재범, 엠블랙 지오 등과 '씨스루' '입장정리' '?(물음표)' 등 히트곡을 발표, 큰
인기를 끈 프라이머리는 동우, 호야의 새 음악을 맡게 됐다.

둘은 본격적인 활동에 앞서 20일 오후 엠넷 '엠카운트다운'을 통해 첫 무대도 공개한다. 이날 더블 MC를 맡은 두 사람은 인피니트와는 다른 무대를 선사하겠단 각오다.

인피니트는 올해 '추격자' 등을 히트시키며 아이돌 강자로 떠올랐다. 국내는 물론 일본에서도 단독 콘서트를 개최하는 등 K팝 열풍을 이끌고 있다.

인피니트 성규 “12시간 음주 후 기억 끊겼다” 과거 고백

인피니트 성규가 12시간 술 마시고 기억을 잃은 경험에 대해 전했다.

성규는 최근 진행된 KBS 2TV 건강 프로그램 '비타민' 연말 간 건강주의보 편 녹화에 참여, 연예계 주당들이 한자리에 모인 가운데 술 때문에 생긴 에피소드로 장장 12시간 동안 술을 마셨던 일화를 공개했다.

성규는 "데뷔 전 친구들과의 술자리가 저녁부터 다음 날 점심까지 이어져 필름이 끊긴 적이 있다"며 "눈을 떠보니 오후 11시 집에서 얌전히 자고 있었다"고 털어놨다.
하지만 "집에 올 때까지의 기억이 없어 무서웠다. 택시 카드결제 문자를 보고서야 도착시간을 알았다"고 당시 아찔했던 기억을 회상하며 이 일을 계기로 절주를 하게 됐다고 밝혔다.

한편 이날 녹화에는 성규 외에도 이상벽, 박준규, 추가열, 윤정수, 우지원, 백승헌이 출연, 현재 간 건강 상태를 꼼꼼하게 점검 받았다.

B2ST’s Yoseob chosen as the most desired coach by the contestants of ‘Voice Kids’

With ‘Voice Korea‘s spin off ‘Voice Korea Kids‘ (‘Voice Kids‘ for short) nearing its broadcast date, the young contestants participating in the show were polled to figure out who was the most wanted coach out of Yoon SangSeo In Young, and B2ST‘s Yoseob.

As reported the three mentioned singers have been chosen as the coaches to serve on this special edition of ‘Voice Korea’ to act as mentors as well as judges for contestants between the ages of 6-14.

As expected, it turns out the young contestants were eager to have someone a bit closer to their age range and more familiar to them, and thus, chose Yoseob as the coach they wanted to work with.

A representative of ‘Voice Kids’ commented, “Because the kids are young and honest, they were honest about their feelings as they chose the coach they wanted. Out of the three coaches, Yoseob was the most popular.”

The representative also praised Yoseob’s ability as a coach on the show, adding, “As we started recording, I could see why Yoseob is popular… While filming with older sunbaes Yoon Sang and Seo In Young, he was able to help stabilize the atmosphere… He was able to do some things that the other judges could not. In addition to going down from the stage to hug the kids and take care of them, he also talked to them about his trainee days and cheered on the eliminated contestants.”

‘Voice Kids’ will begin airing on January 4th!

B2ST’s Yoseob likes women who can protect him?

On the December 14th episode of KBS 2TV‘s ‘Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook‘, B2ST‘s Yoseob had viewers laughing as he commented that he likes a woman who can protect him, rather than the other way around!

MC Yoo Hee Yeol presented Yoseob with the hypothetical situation, “Let’s say you met a woman but didn’t really like her. But that woman says that she’s crazy in love with you. How will you reject her?” To which Yoseob answered, “I won’t beat around the bush. I won’t say it like a bad boy, and would just tell her straightforwardly. I will politely tell her I’m sorry but you’re not my style and leave there”, impressing the audience with his frank nature.

However, the ooh’s and ahh’s of the audience soon turned into laughs as Yoo Hee Yeol further asked, “What if the girl asks ‘is it because I work out a lot?’ Are you scared of women who are really into [building up their muscles]?” 

Yoseob then commented, “I like women who like working out. I like women who are into health, who can protect me,” having the audience burst out in laughs.

Who Wore it Better: Niel vs. L

I’ve had some reader requests for Teen Top and INFINITE WWIB’s lately, but unfortunately wasn’t able to use them. Thankfully, Niel and L were kind enough to solve my dilemma by wearing the same vest!

On November 25′s ‘Inkigayo‘, Teen Top’s Niel wore this quilted vest over a black, long-sleeved shirt and with red pants.
Recently, ‘Elle Girl‘ published this previously unreleased photo of INFINITE’s L from his September photoshoot, where he wore the same vest with black pants and arm warmers.
The vest is by General Idea, and can be purchased here for ~228 USD.
So, who wore it better- Niel with his contrasting colors, or L with his simple black and white style? 

Who wore General Idea better?
Niel 14%
L 86%

Girls’ Generation‘s Sunny recently went for a short bob in a lighter shade of purple.
Block B‘s Jaehyo posted this selca from behind the scenes at ‘Show Champion‘ on November 27, showing off his blueish-purple ‘do.
