Woohyun sleeps in the the closet of INFINITE’s new luxury dorm?

INFINITE recently moved into a new luxurious dorm!

SBS‘ ’One Night of TV Entertainment‘ held an interview with the boys about their recent fanmeeting and also talked about their new digs. 

The boys revealed, “We moved recently“, and shared information on which rooms each member were put in. Sunggyu, L, and Sungyeol shared the biggest room, while Dongwoo and Hoya shared a smaller room. Sungjong and Woohyun had their own rooms, but it turns out that while the maknae Sungjong got the best room in the apartment, Woohyun got shoved into a closet!

The boys explained that they used rock-paper-scissors to determine which room would go to who, and Sungjong won and picked the best room for himself. Meanwhile, Woohyun complained, “Maknae Sungjong and I have our own rooms. Sunjong has a room with a window view and a closet for himself. I’m stuck in an interior room, it’s basically a closet. There’s no space, the door is a sliding door, and it doesn’t even have a lock. Since there’s no window, there’s no light or wind that can come into the room, so I don’t know what time it is even when I wake up in the morning.

Hopefully, Woohyun can get a better end of the draw next time!

How expensive are SHINee’s mics for “Dream Girl”?

SHINee‘s standing mic dance for “Dream Girl” has been a hot issue, and the boys have already announced that one mic weighs in at 4 kgs (8.8 lbs). But do you know how expensive the mics are?

The mics aren’t ordinary mics – they’re built from a material used to build airplanes to make sure they’re as sturdy and light as possible. SM Entertainment revealed, “The mics that SHINee use are specially made from the same material as airplanes. Each one costs 1,500,000 KRW (approximately 1,380 USD). They’re used for both practice and on stage, so we have 5 extra for a total of 10.

Even airplane material might not be strong enough though because one broke on stage already.

Onew has a case of ‘Onew Condition’ on Twitter

Most Shawol’s are familiar with the term ‘Onew Condition‘ – for those who aren’t, it’s when the leader of SHINee finds himself in a hilariously awkward situation that he usually creates for himself.

Well, the ‘Onew Condition’ has struck again! While idols tweeting their thoughts and talking to each other on Twitter are common, Onew has brought a new type into the mix: a conversation with himself. 

The conversation started innocently enough when he tweeted, “I remembered. I get surprised because my hands are cold“. In a bizarre turn of events, perhaps to explain himself, he talked to himself and wrote, “No, no. Someone asked me if I can’t touch radishes..“.

He continued on by replying to himself again as he wrote, “My knees mind is blown“, and then replied again, “No, no. It’s not that it hurts ㅠㅜ“. He finally concluded the strange conversation with “I don’t know. Good night^^^^^^^^^^^^“.

What do you think Onew was trying to say?

How does Doojoon feel about his acting in ‘IRIS 2′?

B2ST‘s Doojoon revealed how he felt about his acting as he watched himself star on the highly hyped drama, ‘IRIS 2‘.

For anyone who hasn’t kept up, Doojoon’s currently active in the action drama as one of the leading characters. His character Seo Hyun Woo is a friendly, hardworking agent, who is good at pretty much everything.

On the 3rd, KBS 2TV‘s ‘3-Day Documentary‘ went behind the scenes with the drama. Since this particular show was filmed right after the first episode aired for ‘IRIS 2′, Doojoon was asked, “Did you watch the first episode yesterday? How was it?“. Doojoon answered, “I watched it in the perspective of a viewer for the first time in a while, and it was fun. I knew everything that was going to happen, but it was fun to watch anyways.

He was then asked, “What do you think about your acting?“, a question that is often asked to idol-turned-actors who are trying their hands at a field outside of their expertise.

Doojoon smiled sheepishly and humbly said, “I think it’s embarrassing.” However, seeing that as Doojoon has been receiving compliments so far about the natural-feel of his acting, it doesn’t seem like he should be too worried!

What are your thoughts? Does Doojoon have a career as a full-time actor down the road?

INFINITE-H talk about love on ‘Yoon Do Hyun’s MUST’

The boys of INFINITE-H talked about their love lives on the March 5th episode of ‘Yoon Do Hyun’s MUST‘!

MC Yoon Do Hyun first asked if either Hoya or Dongwoo were currently in love. Dongwoo replied, “It’s been a while since I was in a relationship, so my dating cells are all dying. But we have our Special Girls.” Hoya also said, “I’m always in love. All the time… (pause) With my fans.” The MC made fun of their ”typical” answers, and the crowd booed jokingly as well.

Hoya also talked about his role on ‘Reply 1997‘ as a gay student, but said, “It’s not that a man liked a man, but rather a person liked a person. I did my acting based on that.” They were then asked about any experiences they had at unrequited love. Dongwoo tried to make a joke that he had an unrequited love with MC Yoon Do Hyun, but Hoya pointed out that the joke was awkward, as they’d just talked about his role on ‘Reply 1997′.

Lee Joon practices judo in new still cuts for ‘Iris 2′

Last week, Lee Joon finally made his long awaited appearance on ‘Iris 2‘, but his scatter of scenes hadn’t been enough to satisfy his fans.

Thankfully, ‘Iris 2′ released a set of still cuts, hinting that viewers will be seeing more and more of Lee Joon in future episodes. The still cuts show Lee Joon teaching Baek Sung Hyun and Lee Seung Hak how to physically handle themselves.

His character is a confident character who always has a smirk on his face, but he is actually completely professional once he starts to work. The still cuts perfectly depicts just that, as they show him smirking at the junior agents with ease at the beginning. But when he actually starts to show them judo, he gets completely serious and has no problem flipping the other agents down onto the mat. Even though Lee Joon suffered a slight injury when he was filming the scene, he bounced right back into filming.

The next episode will air on March 6! Are you watching the drama?

In reply, the fans cheered passionately, and Woohyun spoke up in surprise. He teased his labelmate by saying, “What’s going on? This is no joke. 

Anyway, Kwak Jung Wook, why are you here? I guess you weren’t busy today“, rousing laughter from the crowd. Woohyun continued, “Today is Kwak Jung Wook’s first time on stage. It’s his official debut as an MC.

Kwak Jung Woo didn’t want the verbal sparring to end there as he responded, “There were articles saying that I was going to be an MC for the fanmeeting. The titles were ‘The warm friendship between labelmates’, but that’s wrong. Our CEO forced me to do this. This is strictly business,” which caused even louder laughs.

Hoya had a surprise for everyone, and he said, “To be honest, Kwak Jung Wook was originally a member of INFINITE. Not many people know this, but we were dance rivals when we were both trainees.

Kwak Jung Wook admitted, “I did practice dance with the INFINITE members. I already saw their next stage for their comeback, so I’m looking really forward to it.

What do you think INFINITE would have been like if he was part of the group?
