allkpop [TV Program Guide] [Variety Edition]: [Op-Ed] Leessangs departure from variety: the problem with jumping to conclusions
I don’t usually discuss serious topics on the allkpop TV Guide. But this past week, something really big happened, something worth talking about – and it, sadly, didn’t need to happen at all.
I am, of course, talking about the hip-hop duo Leessang‘s announcement that they would be ending all of their stints on variety programs, with Gil on ‘Infinity Challenge‘ and Gary on ‘Running Man’. This is a reaction to the massive backlash they have received over a concert (‘Super 7‘), featuring the ‘Infinity Challenge’ members, that was produced by Leessang Company.
The stars popped up all over Asia for their respective promotions, and we have all of their latest updates in today’s Twitter Roundup!
2NE1’s Sandara Park and CL got friendly with Charlie Brown, as indicated by the above photo Sandara Park tweeted on October 1 with the message, “Charlie CL, hello! Leaving for China~!!!”
Park Bom also shared a photo on October 1, writing “With my boy Charlie.”
After arriving in China, Minzy shared a photo on October 1, writing “What’s up China#cool.”
All the important Korean Entertainment news from this week in one place: This is your Weekly Soompi Roundup!
This week in celebrity news…
They say romance often blossoms on set, and maybe this is what happened for supposed celebrity couple Chun Jung Myung and Kim Min Jung? Are Jung Kyung Ho and Girl’s Generation’s Sooyoung dating? They deny it but since the rumor has come up twice now… Park Yoochun denied dating rumors with golfer Ahn Shin Ae. Well, he did say he liked older women so maybe they’re not dating. DMTN’s Choi Daniel has made his appeal after receiving a one year jail sentence for his marijuana charges. Actor Go Joo Won is involved in an assault incident full of accusations and lawsuits. They said he beat them up. He said he wasn’t there. We’ll have to wait to find out what happened. Kwang Ji Hwan recently won the legal battle against his old agency while Jo Yeo Jeong is still dealing with two agencies. Kara‘s Goo Hara fainted during a Japanese concert but her agency says not to worry. miss A’s Min tweeted a picture of Sunmi with Rick Ross’ head photoshopped over her. People debated on whether it was racist but her agency apologized and she took it down.
FNC Entertainment is keeping in the family with its next project.
Cheongdam-dong 111, a FNC reality drama, is set to premiere on tvN on November 21.
The 8-episode long reality drama will show things that happen inside FNC Entertainment. The stars who work with the FNC Entertainment include FT Island, CN Blue, AOA, Juniel, Song Eun Yi, Actor Lee Dong Gun, and Park Kwang Hyun.
The drama will show not only the celebrities, but everyone else who works in the building such as the CEO, managers, office assistants, and the trainees who are preparing for their debut in the future.
Yoon Kye Sang was cast as the protagonist for Chinese film Hello My Love.
In the romance movie Hello My Love, Yoon Kye Sang will go back in time to watch his life from the sidelines, and rediscover the forgotten love for his wife.
The filming was completed in Beijing earlier this year.
The movie was directed by director Park Kwang Hyun, who also directed the hit movie Welcome to Dongmakgol, which gathered over 8 million audiences and won many movie awards.
EPISODE 171. Broadcast on November 10, 2013.
Today’s opening is a mostly recycled version of last week’s super-long intro of Ryu Hyun-jin (LA Dodgers). There are couple of adorable moments at the start, however, like how Gary shoots Ji-hyo cutesy heart baseball signals and Ji-hyo’s flubbed pitch.
The cast marvels at the baseball star’s sweet digs, joking that they should have treated him better during his last visit. Then they collectively cringe when Hyun-jin shouts out the corny magical incantation.
Trouble Maker’s “Now” went from outside of the top 10 (No. 15) last week and moved up all the way to No. 1 this week. It is not a surprise considering that this song swept all music shows last week. The tiny margin of victory over Park Ji Yoon’s “Mr. Lee” is more shocking.
This is the first No. 1 song for Trouble Maker, the headline-grabbing duo made up of BEAST’s Hyun Seung and 4minutes’ HyunA. The self titled track “Trouble Maker” went to No. 2 early last year. “Now” is the title song from the duo’s second mini-album “Chemistry.” “Now” is an upbeat number composed by Shinsadong Tiger, Rado, and LE. The song holds lyrics about a dramatic situation between couples. As fans expected, “Now” features a seductive MV and dance performance.
Big Bang′s T.O.P may be one of the hottest idols around now, but even T.O.P has photos from his past he might wish to hide.
December 23’s broadcast of MBC’s Good Day revealed pictures of Big Bang’s T.O.P, ZE:A’s Kwang Hee, Jung Kyung Ho and Park Min Young’s from the past.
The photos, which have circulated before, show T.O.P looking much heavier than his current self.
According to the show, T.O.P lost 20 kilograms in just 40 days after YG’s Yang Hyun Suk told him to lose weight if he wants to become a singer.
For the third straight week, a song from outside of the top 10 the previous week captures the No. 1 spot. This week the honor belongs to Davichi, as their latest hit “Letter” jumps all the way from No. 21 to the top. It is the second chart topping hit for Davichi this year. The duo also hit No. 1 with “Be Warmed” back in April. Congratulations.
“Letter” is from Davichi’s digital single “Davichi Code.” Written by hitmaker Jun Hae Sung, “Letter” has an acoustic guitar arrangement. Davichi expresses the poetic lyrics with their perfect harmony. This song won on MBC Music Core last week and consistently ranked among the top songs across all charts. As a result, it beats last week’s No. 1, miss A’s “Hush” for the top spot this week.
Like we mentioned in our “Luckiest Actors of The Year” article, December is that interesting period of the year where all the boffins from the entertainment industry gather around in some magical room to rank their own achievements over the year. The actors had their moment in the spotlight, and now it’s time for the music industry to pat themselves on the back with a survey asking who was the most active agencies of 2013 run by news media outlet “Star News.” In news that I’m sure is surprising to no one, SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment were voted as the agencies that performed the best in 2013. Meanwhile Starship Entertainment (Home of Sistar) and Mystic89 (Home of Lim Kim, Park Ji Yoon, Yoon Jong Shin) were voted as the agencies that have rose to sudden prominence in 2013.

Now four years in the music industry, the B2ST members started doing the whole ‘Together But Separate’ thing, where each member ventured out to other roads while the group was on album hiatus.
Not surprising, but each of them found their own paths and did quite well, bringing in more recognition for the group as multi-entertainers
Lee Gi Kwang
Having debuted a little earlier than the other B2ST members (remember AJ?), Lee Gi Kwang has the most experience in doing solo work.

Happy Lunar New Year to all our readers.
Due to Korea’s Lunar New Year celebrations, not many singers released new songs. As a result, our music chart is quieter this week and the top three songs remain the same as last week. Girl’s Day’s “Something” becomes the first song to repeat as No. 1 this year. This week it further pulls away from Ailee’s “Singing Got Better,” which remains at No. 2. B1A4’s multiple music show winning song “Lonely” is still at No. 3.
