On April 13th, the B.A.P
boys touched down in New York for their 2nd ever concert in the Big Apple!
One of the staff members told me that there were girls waiting overnight, and I know some people who were there from the crack of dawn to see their boys up close. The doors opened at 6:30, and fans poured into the Best Buy Theater to get as close as they could.
Sadly enough, with so little space to breathe and move comfortably, I saw one girl getting carried out even before the concert started. Throughout the concert, the crowd had to part here and there to allow room for various girls to get carried out. All this even though the staff did their best to cool the audience down by fanning them, cranking up the AC, spraying them with cool water, and handing out water bottles continuously

Dasom’s gaze was extraordinary. She was no longer just a maknae of SISTAR, and was full of lively spirit and confidence. What has happened to the twenty two year old?
A big change took place in Dasom’s life when she knocked on the door to the world of dramas as a new actress. She finally began unfolding the dream she had since she was young that continued even when she promoted as a member of SISTAR.
Dasom made her acting debut through KBS2’s sitcom Shut Up Family. Acting out the chic and charismatic character in the sitcom, she earned the nickname of ‘acting-dol.’
Then she surprised everyone by being cast as the lead actress in a 150 episode long drama KBS1’s Melody of Love. Despite many skeptical views on an idol taking on the lead role in a drama, Dasom proved them wrong by perfectly pulling off the ‘roller coaster’ emotions of the character ‘Gong Deul Im
Yoo Ah In‘s and Kim Hee Ae‘s characters seems to have started to progress their relationship on JTBC‘s “Secret Love Affair,” but it’s not as the drama’s titles suggests, not yet at least. The March 24 episode featured a moment in which Yoo Ah In’s character, Lee Sung Jae, began officially receiving piano lessons from Kim Hee Ae’s character, Oh Hye Won. Guess who introduced the two? None other than Oh Hye Won’s husband Kang Joon Hyung (actor Park Hyun Kwon). The recently released still shots showed Oh Hye Won conveying strict instructions to Sung Jae, molding his posture by straightening his back through the help of a stick. Furthermore, one of the images showed Hye Won’s husband Joon Hyung, watching his wife instruct the possible piano prodigy
Tae Jin Ah confessed that he wants to do a collaboration performance with EXO.
During press conference for Mnet’s Trot X which took place on March 18, Tae Jin Ah said, “Some people think that trot is music that only older people do. But if you listen to idols’ music these days, the ones with trot elements end up as big hits.”
He said, “For example, EXO’s Growl is actually trot. If Na Hoon Ah, Seol Woon Do or I sang Growl, it would become trot. The same goes for Rain’s LA Song. That’s why those songs became big hits.”
Then he sent a love call to EXO by saying, “My next collaboration performance will be with EXO. EXO, let’s perform together once.”
Meanwhile, Trot X is set to air the first episode on March 21
Many fans of “Running Man” suspected that permanent member Lee Kwang Soo and guest Kim Woo Bin would have great chemistry if they were to pair up during the show’s current overseas special, “Adventures in Australia.” They were right, as this week’s episode proved.
Last week, Kim Woo Bin was paired with Yoo Jae Suk, and Lee Kwang Soo with Rain, but this week, partners were switched to turn things up a notch. Lee Kwang Soo and Kim Woo Bin teamed up, while Kim Jong Kook and Rain made another team. Yoo Jae Suk was paired with Ji Suk Jin, and Haha and Gary became another team.
For one of the missions, the pairs were required to protect the water in their cups from spilling. Kim Woo Bin and Lee Kwang Soo tried to cheat by drinking water from another source and holding it within their mouths, intending to add it to their cups when no one was looking if some water spilled on the trip

EPISODE 15 RECAP by Dramabeans
Even after Shinichi receives one of Baek-san’s finishing moves, he continues to fight until a group of Kaya’s henchmen come to fetch him on her orders. Shinichi refuses at first, wanting to finish the fight, but acquiesces immediately when the henchmen show him a mysterious black bag.
Baek-san acts all friendly to Jung-tae after the fight, though Jung-tae’s not too keen on returning the kindness. He promises to repay the debt he owes Baek-san (for saving him from Shinichi), but there’s something darker in that promise—he’s talking revenge.
But Baek-san, none the wiser, tells him that he owes him nothing: “Hwangbang will always protect you.” Oh, you mean when Hwangbang isn’t trying to kill him?
Kaya gets another chance to ask Leader Seol who killed her mother, but instead of answering her directly he tells her about her mother; the way she lived and the way she was loved at Club Shanghai, even though she was the highest female on the yakuza food chain

Actress Ha Ji Won was born in 1978, the Year of the Horse, so it’s no wonder that she has a special bond with horses.
Ha Ji Won has spent a great deal of time with horses on MBC Monday-Tuesday drama’s “Empress Ki,” having had many horse-riding scenes in the early part of the drama. She recently got back into the saddle five months after her last horseback ride last September.
On the February 24 episode of “Empress Ki” (Episode 32), Ha Ji Won’s Seung Nyang went on a horse riding date with Ta Hwan (Ji Chang Wook) to practice for a hunting competition. She showed off the results of special horse riding training she had received at a riding club, drawing her bow while riding her horse quite professionally.
Action scenes require quite a great deal of practice, and while actors may sometimes choose to use a stunt double to minimize risk, Ha Ji Won generally prefers to choose her own scenes

MBC’s upcoming drama Hotel King brought together the cast members for its script reading.
The PD and the cast members, including Lee Dong Wook, Lee Da Hae, 2AM’s Seulong and others got together for two rounds of script reading, which took place at MBC’s Dream Center in Ilsan and Lotte Hotel in Sogong-dong in the middle of February.
Before the script reading took place, Kim Jin Min CP (chief producer) said, “We’re going to put our full trust in the staff and writer,” and Kim Dae Jin PD said, “I hope we can all enjoy our start. I’m going to do my best.”

On the bus, Chun-soo is dead asleep as Jin-hee positions his head back on her shoulder. Chang-min pulls up next to the bus in his car at a stoplight, but neither Chang-min nor Jin-hee see each other. The bus jerks Chun-soo awake and Jin-hee feigns sleep. He nudges her awake, with an “Asleep already?” and she makes a big show of yawning and stretching.As the two order breakfast, Chun-soo tells Jin-hee that she should go do medical volunteer work on an island somewhere. “I think that’s the best fit for you,” he says. Jin-hee replies, “I’d like that. But I’d like to finish my internship first.” She hesitates for a moment before asking, “What’s going to happen to me now?” Chun-soo’s answer is noncommittal, and not particularly comforting: “That depends on your fate.”When the restaurant ajumma mistakenly assumes that Jin-hee is Chun-soo’s “pretty wife,” both Jin-hee and Chun-soo share an awkward moment
Recently, I’ve been watching a lot of Shirokuma Cafe, also called Polar Bear’s Cafe in good olde English. It’s one of those daily life snapshot shows, one that doesn’t have some sort of complex or deep overarching story plot. Instead it tells the tale of a town where talking animals and people live together in relative harmony.
I bring this up because the show has given me two interesting thoughts to dwell on.
sort of reminds me of the seven Penguin sisters in the anime (Maybe it’s because of AOA’s miniskirt album photo?). There is quite a lack of “Feel Good” content in the K-Pop music world.
Obviously can’t discuss both items so lets pick the most important one to ramble on this week.
