Teen Top’s L.Joe Asks Someone (?) to Stop Stalking Him

Sometimes, enough is enough, and Teen Top’s L.Joe has put his foot down.

On June 9, L.Joe tweeted, “I wanted to watch the movie with a good mood~ but because you sat right next to the seat I purchased, I had to move my seat many times. Go home safely.”

He later added, “From the dorm to the movies… Honestly, it’s uncomfortable that you follow my personal life. Please refrain from it.”

While the context of the tweets seem like L.Joe is warning sasaeng fans, due to fellow member Chunji’s replies to the tweets, the situation became a bit hazy.

For each of L.Joe’s tweets, Chunji wrote, “I’m sorry. T” and “That’s right, that’s right,” making it a bit confusing to whether the stalker fan that L.Joe was referring to was actually Chunji or a real sasaeng fan.

Were the Teen Top members just merely playing around with each other? Or is L.Joe actually a victim of sasaeng fans crossing the line, like Niel was?

Block B Loses Case Against Stardom Entertainment

Block B lost its contract case against its agency Stardom Entertainment, but it showed it′s not planning on returning to the agency.

On June 7, law firm Shinwon, Block B′s legal representative, said through a press release, "We haven′t been convinced by many of the decisions the court made. We will confirm the lawful cancellation of the contract in the merit suit, then demand compensation from Stardom on its violations."

On the same day, the Seoul Central District Court had dismissed the suit Block B had brought against its agency. Its decision was made, according to the court, based on the lack of evidence on whether the agency had indeed failed to uphold its duties. It also added that it was hard to say the agency hadn′t paid the members their dues.

The release from Block B′s representative added, "[Block B] does not plan to rejoin Stardom for its future career, and so the group will prepare to go its own way. If the merit suit does not say the contract should be cancelled, the group is prepared to pay compensation."

On January 3, all the members of Block B had filed a suit for the cancellation of its contract with its agency Stardom. They claimed that the agency had not paid what the members were due for about a year.

The two MBLAQ members were asked to honestly rate their sisters’ beauty, and Cheon Dung shared that he currently lives with his family.

“When I see her at home, I don’t really think that she’s pretty, but when I see her amongst other celebrities, she becomes very pretty,” said Cheon Dung, making the MCs joke that it must be because all the other celebrities are drop-dead ugly. Cheon Dunq quickly said, “Even though she’s surrounded by very pretty people, my sister looked really beautiful.”

In complete contrast to Cheon Dung’s praises towards Sandara Park, Mir was straightforward and direct, saying, “My sister is the worst of the worst.”

He added that he never thought that Ko Eun A was ever pretty. “When my mom sees my sister at home, she even says, ‘Look at that beggar over there.’”
