Lee Joon finally makes an appearance in ‘Iris 2′

Iris 2‘ was off to a blazing start with high TV ratings but for the first two weeks, Lee Joon was nowhere to be found. Many viewers were kept wondering where he could possibly be but the MBLAQ member finally made his long awaited appearance on the 5th episode.

The 5th episode aired on the 27th, and to make up for his lengthy absence, his voice was even used for the beginning narration.

Even though he played a serious, cool character for his first scene, he soon showed some elements of his real-life self, being a proud and fun character.

He’s going to be swept up in an unusual situation as he guards the former president in the drama, and even though he complains about his tasks, he always fulfills his duty until the very end. His action scenes awed the entire staff, especially the director.

Are you looking forward to seeing more of Lee Joon in the drama?

Sunggyu reassures HyunA that he’s not a sasaeng fan

INFINITE‘s Sunggyu attempted to explain himself to 4minute‘s HyunA.

On the February 27 episode of ‘Radio Star‘, MC Yoo Se Yoon listed Sunggyu’s many ideal types which included Jeon Ji Hyun, Soyu, and HyunA. When he was asked if he selected these women because they had sexy bodies, Sunggyu stated that the main reason was because he likes women with pale and milky skin. Of all the women from his ideal types, he has talked mostly about HyunA over the years. So much so that he stated, “It’s like I’m in love with her. Now when she sees me, she looks at me like I’m sort of a sasaeng fan. So I wanted to properly explain myself.

In a video message to her, he said, “I just… It’s not that I like you. Wait, no, I do like you. As a fan, I just love- wait, no, I don’t love. As a fan.. I’m a big fan. It’s not like I have weird thoughts.

Kyuhyun pointed out, “So you are a fan. You said she looks at you like you’re her fan“, and Sunggyu said, “Like.. sort of a sasaeng fan.” Undeterred, Kyuhyun continued, “What if HyunA asked you out?“. Sunggyu sighed and said, “Do you think such a thing could really happen?“.

Kyuhyun and Muzie urged him on, and he replied, “If that happened, I think I’d be able to handle it well. For my future.” He ended up stuttering, “I’ll think of all my fans and… secretly… Wait, no“, causing everyone to laugh at his embarrassment.

INFINITE’s Sunggyu was hurt by L’s remarks about his solo album?

INFINITE‘s Sunggyu opened up about a time when he felt somewhat betrayed by a group member.

Discussing his solo album, “Another Me“, on the latest episode of MBC‘s ‘Radio Star‘, he revealed that he was disappointed by the lack of success of his first solo effort. The conversation started with MC Kim Kuk Jin pointing out, “I heard that your ambitious solo album was a complete failure. Your fans even made posts reading, ‘Don’t even type in or search about Sunggyu’s solo album failing’ since the search ranking will go up.

Sunggyu sighed as he responded, “I saw that. If you type in ‘Sunggyu’ in the search bar, the related search term is ‘Sunggyu’s solo failure’.” The other MCs joked around to make him smile, and he continued, “It came out last year, and the songs were really good. The album is a classic. It’s a really well-made album.” Kyuhyun mentioned that INFINITE-H‘s album was doing well, and Sunggyu explained that it was because they had the name ‘INFINITE’ behind them, while he just promoted simply as ‘Kim Sunggyu’, and explained that he was originally going to be ‘INFINITE’s Sungyu’, but changed at the last minute.

Even more so than the failure itself, he related, was the reactions of his fellow INFINITE members. He said, “The worst thing was, L‘s sitcom was cancelled.

I heard he was drinking with our CEO, so I went to them. In the beginning, he said he was so thankful that I was there, but when he got drunk, he said, ‘But it’s okay because you failed, too’. I went to cheer him on, but I was the one that got damaged. During that time, it was sort of hard for me to say anything, because he was having a hard time, too. Since I’m a hyung, I couldn’t go argue with him about it. I was going to let it go if he stopped there, but he just kept going. He even knew the exact ranking. Even I didn’t know that! I got angry and blurted, ‘Didn’t the drama get ruined because of you?’“.

Sunggyu went on to reveal that despite being hurt at the time over L’s remarks, they mutually put an end to the problem by getting over their hangover together the next morning – which goes to prove that in some cases, drinking does solve problems, after all!

MBLAQ takes on three different looks for the album jackets of Japanese single “Mona Lisa”

MBLAQ has taken on three different looks for the three album jackets of their Japanese single, ”Mona Lisa“, leaving fans saying, “oh yeah”, as they pick and choose their favorite!

As typical of most Japanese releases, there will be several versions of the single including two limited editions and one regular edition. So for each edition comes a new jacket; the boys sport a tough, charismatic look in all black ensembles for the first one, a preppy, boy-next-door image for the second, and finally a fun and funky look for the third version.

Their Japanese label explained the concept behind the photos stating, “The black represents their powerful performances on stage, and the white and vivid colors represent their kind and lively image when they’re not on stage.” 

MBLAQ will release their 3rd Japanese single on March 27th, so you have plenty of time to debate with yourself about whether to pick one, or you know, just splurge on all three to your wallet’s dismay.

So, which is your favorite?

Why did MBLAQ’s Seungho and Mir visit ‘Inkigayo’?

MBLAQ hasn’t promoted a song since “Run“, so the boys have been quite absent from the broadcast stations.

However, the boys paid a special visit to ‘Inkigayo‘ to cheer on their hoobae labelmates TWO X. J.Tune Camp tweeted a photo of the two MBLAQ members and TWO X in cute yellow stage outfits from the ‘Inkigayo’ backstage, writing, “#MBLAQ #TwoX Seungho and Mir appeared at the SBS Deungchon Hall, where SBS ‘Inkigayo’ was held!! They came to ‘Inkigayo’ for the first time in a long time to cheer on TWO X. We’re revealing that scene to you. Ring Ma Bell~♪“.

Seems like MBLAQ is making sure to take good care of their hoobaes, as they’ve previously given them special lessons!

SHINee reveals their ‘dream girls’

Jonghyun, Minho, and Taemin of SHINee revealed their ‘dream girls’ in a recent radio broadcast of ‘Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time‘.

“I like women who are like foxes,” Jonghyun said. “Those with a lot of aegyo and who can play around with me.”

Minho took a different track as he got a little more detailed. “I like girls who look especially beautiful when they flip their hair while in the midst of working hard on something.” [How many of our readers did this in real life just now?]

The youngest, Taemin, gave what might be the most mature answer of them all. “I’d like someone who is the same on the inside and the outside, someone who’s honest about herself.”

A famous female celebrity has expressed interest in a TEEN TOP member?

Netizens have found themselves another case to investigate as TEEN TOP mentioned that a famous female celebrity has expressed interest in one of the members!

On the 26th, the boys had a showcase for their first album, where they talked about all sorts of topics and performed “Miss Right“. With the title track about finding that perfect girl, the talk segment naturally encompassed the topic of dating and love.

L.Joe surprised and teased when he said, “One of the members was asked out by a female celebrity, who is someone that everyone would know if we mentioned her name.” When the audience couldn’t quiet down, he, perhaps scared that the situation might become a bit bigger than he expected, added, “If I think about it, maybe she didn’t ask him out. She told him he was her ideal type.

Niel helped stir the topic in a different direction by jokingly boasting, “A lot of female sunbae celebrities like Um Jung Hwa, Lee Hyori, Kahi, and Lizzy like us. Thank you so much,” bringing bittersweet laughter from their fangirls.

Any idea who this famous female celebrity may be?
