For a recent shoot of MBC’s We Got Married, the idol couple was seen dressed up in traditional Korean wedding gowns for a marriage ceremony.

Upon seeing ‘his wife’ dressed in a traditional wedding dress, Taemin commented with a big smile, “You look like a girl from a noble family who I can’t even dare to look at!”

Big Bang‘s Seungri had a sweet kiss scene in the Japanese drama “Yubikoi, Kimini Okuru Message.”
“Yubikoi” is about young adults and how text messaging plays in their love lives. In the drama, Seungri plays the Korean foreign student, Han Seung Ho who is staying in the home of actress Takimoto Miori‘s character, Miu. Han Seung Ho wants to message his first love in Japanese, but because his Japanese is weak, he enlists the help of Miu to write the texts. Through this relationship, the two end up falling for each other.

Back in the summer of 2012, many fans were excited to learn about the release of Junsu’s (XIA‘s) new English single album, “Uncommitted.” The album opened a new understanding towards the singer’s ability to digest and express different musical ranges. Many have wondered about the American producer behind the English song “Uncommitted”. The question might have occurred again this past summer, when the same producer of “Uncommitted” had worked with Junsu to create the song “Incredible,” the Korean and English title song featuring Quincy Brown in Junsu’s second solo album.
American producer Bruce “Automatic” Vanderveer, CEO of InRage Entertainment, is the mastermind behind “Uncommitted” and “Incredible,” two completely opposite styled songs that managed to fit perfectly with Junsu’s vocals

In the drama, Seungri plays a Korean home stay student, who moves into Miu (Takimoto Miori)’s house.
The drama will begin on December 4.

Nine: Series review
To get a fuller intro into the show, you can catch our recaps for Episode 1 and Episode 2, but I’ll give an abbreviated setup anyway:
Our hero is Park Sun-woo (Lee Jin-wook), a successful news anchor who sees every scenario through a no-nonsense, facts-first lens. He has an older brother who’s a wandering lost soul, as weak-willed as Sun-woo is strong; his ailing mother lives in a nursing home with dementia; and his father, a hospital director, was killed twenty years ago in a fire.
It’s the last point that sticks with Sun-woo even now, because while the hospital fire was ruled an accident, he believes otherwise. It was curious how his father’s ambitious friend soon took over the hospital and benefited handsomely, turning it into a large operation and becoming the rich chairman he is today

It has been confirmed by a Korean-American news outlet that Ailee (Lee Ye Jin) did, in fact, file a police report at the Palisades Park Police Department after she was scammed into sending nude photos of herself to an alleged underwear company four years ago.

Former “American Idol” contestant Han Hee Jun, who made it to the top 9 of the American audition show, is leaving that achievement behind and starting over as a contestant on “K-Pop Star 3.”
On November 24, Han Hee Jun appeared on SBS‘s own audition program, “K-Pop Star 3,” as a contestant and surprised everyone on the show.

After a few quiet weeks, we have a lot of movement in the top 10 this week. There are five new songs, including our new No. 1 song this week. Miss A’s latest hit “Hush” debuted only at No. 20 a week ago but moved up 19 spots to take over as our new No. 1 song, easily winning over last week’s No. 1 Trouble Maker’s “Now.” Miss A hasn’t hit No. 1 on our chart since “Touch” in March of last year. Congratulations.
“Hush” is the title song from miss A’s second full length album of the same name. Instead of working with their boss and long time producer JYP, “Hush” is written by E-Tribe and penned by E-Tribe and Min Yeon Jae. It has a different style than miss A’s past hits. The lyrics are about the joy of whispers and kisses between lovers

Singers. Actors. Comedians. And now businessmen.
After being under the limelight since 2005, the Super Junior members have saved enough money to start out their own little projects on the side, opening stores, restaurants, and cafes.
Not all the members have their own businesses, but for the ones that do, their places have become must-go-to places for fans when visiting Korea.
Choi Siwon’s Twosome Place
Although this one was only a pop-up and isn’t there anymore, we decided to include it anyways,

Running Man: Episode 172 recap by DramaBeans. Broadcast on November 17, 2013.
We pick up with last week’s hide-and-seek game against idol group EXO. With less than 20 seconds left before the switch, Jae-suk corners two idol boys in the elevator… then swiftly eliminates them both, tieing the game to 5:5.
As EXO prepares to hunt down the cast, Kwang-soo… pretends to be a mannequin? Haha. Is this the idea that nobody will notice if you hide in plain sight?
Kai heads back to his former hiding place thinking that no one would be hiding there, right? Wrong. He finds Suk-jin behind some boxes and eliminates him.
Guessing that hiding isn’t a safe tactic anymore, Kwang-soo switches places with his VJ. But his wall height is a dead giveaway, and gets promptly caught by Luhan
