Waiting for her friend Yuto to come over during the episode, Chu Sarang helps her dad as he prepares a cake for Yuto’s birthday. She also makes the decision to dress up in a mermaid princess outfit in anticipation of her friend’s arrival, making the careful selection after taking a look at a variety of dresses. Interestingly, the dress seems to have an effect on the previously lively Sarang, as she suddenly becomes much more modest upon donning the dress.

Korea’s Military Manpower Administration has refuted Yoo Seung Jun’s claim that he recently inquired about enlisting in the military.
An official statement from the agency was aired on the May 24 episode of MBC’s “Section TV,” and stated that, “Yoo Seung Jun has not inquired about joining the military since 2002.” This response comes after the former K-pop star gave an emotional live internet interview in which he said that he had inquired about joining the military last year.
Super Junior‘s Choi Siwon showed his support for Kwanghee on MBC‘s “Infinity Challenge,” who he competed against for “Sixth Man.”
On the May 24 episode of MBC’s “Section TV Entertainment Relay,” he complimented his former competitor, saying, “Kwanghee is really good, and it really suits him well.”
However, he stutters as he says the words, and his co-interviewee Ji Jin Hee points out, “Why are you stuttering?” Choi Siwon responds by asking, “Was that really obvious?”
Kim Ji Soo, a member of YG’s upcoming mystery girl group, made a surprise appearance on KBS 2TV’s “Producer.”

This is just one among Kim Ji Soo’s many pre-debut appearances, having already been actively participating in the entertainment field, modeling for a casual handbag brand with Lee Min Ho and starring in the music videos for Epik High’s “Spoiler+Happen Ending” and Hi Suhyun’s “I’m Different.”
Yoo Jae Suk revealed his personal space at home for the very first time on the latest episode of MBC’s “Infinity Challenge.”
Aired on May 23, the episode shows the various cast members packing for their Bangkok trip.
“The producers told me to self-film this,” says Yoo Jae Suk, as he shows one of his rooms, unadorned except for a computer desk and some caps hanging on the wall.

Korea"s leading entertainment company, CJ E&M, launched a new project called DIA TV early this month in an aim to bridge domestic YouTube video creators with a wider global audience.DIA TV is an upgraded version of the company"s multichannel network (MCN) business, which was established in 2013 to provide support to video creators when it comes to marketing, distribution and copyright issues.However, with the business" fast-paced development, the entertainment conglomerate is now taking its service to the next level under a new agenda - by creating new business models, expanding its platform and reaching out to global audiences."We now have 387 creators who amass more than 22 million subscribers on YouTube. Each of them specializes in various fields, like entertainment, beauty, music and food. Now, those creators can advance to become "influencers" who can have an impact on the public", Oh Jin-se, who manages the company"s MCN business, said during a press conference on May 7 in central Seoul. When the MCN business was created in 2013 - the first of its kind in Korea - it aided many content creators by offering practical help, such as renting out cameras, arranging collaboration among video producers and even building studios in Hongdae, western Seoul. Now, DIA TV will diversify the group"s single platform, YouTube, with other video-sharing websites such as Youku, based in China, and Dailymotion, based in France. CJ E&M is currently in discussions to possibly start that service from June. Among the many possible business models possible from video content, the first to be debuted is that called O2O (offline-to-online) service. It matches online content with offline reality - by suggesting real restaurants that offer similar dishes to those promoted by video bloggers, for example. At the same time, the entertainment giant is attempting to reach a wider global audience, considered key in expanding business. CJ E&M plans to broadcast Internet-based content to their own global TV channel, Channel M, which airs in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong, among others. "We are not going to restrict our boundaries only to the domestic market", said Lee Deok-jae, who"s in charge of the company"s broadcasts and content. "If we don"t profit outside the domestic market, there would be some limitations. There are creators who aren"t able to realize their potential due to things like language barriers, so we are planning to fill in those gaps", Lee added. Translation services for homemade videos will be offered in addition.DIA TV aims to secure 2,000 content creators by 2017, while establishing more than 20 teams with more than 1 million subscribers. One of the main partners of the new project is Na Dong-hyun, better known as The GreatLibrary, who runs the eponymous Youtube channel with more than 900,000 subscribers. With the help of CJ E&M, Na plans to build his own company, tentatively titled DH Media, within the first half of this year. "Seeking out content creators who lack publicity amid this highly competitive market", is the main purpose of his soon-to-be founded company. BY JIN EUN-SOO [firstname.lastname@example.org]

Kick-Ass” Chloe Moretz stuffs her face, dances to “Gangnam Style”, and curses in satoori on “SNL Korea”
The actress visited Korea for 4 days this past weekend, guided by singer Eric Nam, and she featured on "SNL Korea" with Eric! She asked Eric for advice on how she could leave an impression on her Korean fans, and he coached her through the "Do you know---" questions, eating broadcast, dancing the way Koreans like it, and even cursing as Koreans do.
At first, Chloe seems to be flustered but willing to learn everything - but at the end she shows that her lessons have really paid off as she gives the comedian a run for her money with her own satoori cursing.

On the episode of MBC’s “We Got Married” aired on May 23, Song Jae Rim takes his city-craving wife on a trip to Seoul, especially since they are now fully adjusted to their life in Gimpo.
Kim So Eun, who is excited about their date, is bewildered at the sight of her husband in a sleek tuxedo, fit for the red carpet. Song Jae Rim sets up a special event for his wife in celebration of “Husband and Wife Day.”
As expected, BIGBANG’s “LOSER” becomes our new winner this week, moving up three spots from No. 4 to No. 1. They scored a perfect 1000 points, meaning that they boast a unanimous No. 1 from all our chart sources. “LOSER” is the first song to achieve a perfect score in 2015. It happened four times last year. “LOSER” swept all the music shows and was also ranked No. 1 on most independent charts. Congratulations to BIGBANG.
EXID’s “Ah Yeah” still remains strong, holding on to the No. 2 spot this week, while last week’s No. 1, BTS’ “I Need You,” drops two spots to No. 3.
American actress Chloe Moretz hit up “SNL Korea” with Eric Nam for the show’s May 23 episode, where she learns from the cast members how captivate Korean fans.
Eric Nam, part of an agency called Love Korea Management, starts off by giving Chloe tips on how to answer staple questions in Korean interviews: “Do you know kimchi?” “Do you know PSY?”
After she masters the art of the interview, Chloe moves on to the meat of the lessons, learning the proper way to be a mokbang star with seaweed and sausages.
Hwang Jung Eum is both a beautiful lady and a skilled actor, but she said that she preferred receiving compliments on her looks rather than her acting skills.
On the episode of KBS2’s “Entertainment Weekly” aired on May 23, Hwang Jung Eum is asked, “Which do you want to hear more: that you are a good actor or that you are pretty,” to which she replies, “Pretty.”
“I’ve been focusing on my acting so much that I’ve given up on my looks,” she says. “I can only focus on one thing at a time.”
Love triangles, squares and other manner of romantic geometry are a staple of Korean drama. They have a set of tropes that go with them and they entertain people when done well. For a series which would under normal drama circumstances be a love pentagon, however, "Ex-Girlfriends" Club" breaks the mold in the type of dynamics found between the characters. This is an interesting enough feature to speak of and will perhaps become the show"s strength down the road.
This is not a typical situation where all the women are after one man. In fact, whatever reasons each woman has for their objections to having their romantic life turned into a movie, which is the goal of the two leads, there is not much romance to speak of between any pairing. So far, this is not a typical romantic comedy and the women are far from typical drama women. The same goes for the center of it all, Bang Myeong-soo (Byeon Yo-han).

Having recently wrapped up tvN drama Hogu′s Love, Lim Seulong is ready to take on his next project: his first solo album.
The 2AM member, who released his first solo album Normal on May 22, sat down with fashion magazine Singles to talk about stepping out on his own.
"On one hand, I′m nervous and happy, but on the other hand, the thought of having to take on all of the responsibility worries me," said Lim Seulong on releasing his first album.
Lim Seulong, who took the reigns, from production to the overall concept and music video and even budgeting, continued, "I′ve released a lot of albums and I know the production process as well as the business side to a certain extent, but it was my first time personally running around with just my manager to prepare the album, so it was largely a matter of trial and error."
A representative from "SNL Korea" stated, "On June 20th, we will be going on a two month resting period. During the break, we will be thinking of new segments and make changes to the existing crew. Rather than making a big change, we are thinking about making small changes as well as an organized restructure."
