A Pink’s “Mr. Chu” comes from outside of the top 10 and moves up 16 spots to become our new No. 1 song this week!
This song swept all the music shows last week and easily won over Lee Sun Hee’s “Meet Him Among Them.” Orange Caramel’s “Catallena” rounds out the all female top three this week.
“Mr. Chu” is the title track of A Pink’s 4th mini album, “Pink Blossom.” It is a cute pop dance song about the thrill of sharing the first kiss with one’s significant other. The various synth effects and the upbeat rhythm highlight the sweet and lovable qualities of A Pink. This is A Pink’s second No. 1 song on our chart as they did it last year with “NoNoNo.” Congratulations to A Pink.
With her first Hollywood film Make Your Move about to premiere, BoA shared her thoughts on having starred in her first film.
In a recent interview with Newsen, BoA said, “Even though I showed my acting previously through KBS 2TV’s Looking Forward to Romance, my actually first project is Make Your Move. So my first kiss scene was not with Im Si Wan, but was with Derek Hough.”
She continued, “Before I started filming I received some acting lessons. I took them with Derek Hough. So we ended up practicing the kiss scene once, because the teacher asked us to. Practice definitely made a difference. So I wasn’t too nervous during filming. I was more distracted by many things.”
“You’ll see in the movie that Derek Hough and I have a kiss scene on the street
Preparing for his new movie release, Song Seung Hun posed for star style magazine @star1 and talked about marriage and kids.
Through the May issue of @star, Song Seung Hun posed in a casual environment wearing very simple and comfortable clothing, perfect for the spring weather.
Despite being 18 years in the business, Song Seung Hun said he has a lot to challenge himself in, especially with his new movie Obsessed coming out in theaters in May.
“Because it’s something I’ve never shown before, I’m quite nervous and burdened,” said the actor. “I hope that through this project, viewers can see Song Seung Hun in a different light.”
Reaching the age when marriage becomes an avoidable topic, Song Seung Hun said, “I think dating and selecting a spouse are very different issues

Korea is completely inundated with singers from the pretty idols and talented dancers to the indie artists and OST stars. However, amongthe Korean artists I know, the names that immediately flood my head when I hearthe phrase "unique voice" form a much shorter list. Much like the "it factor", it"s a bit hard to quantify but when you hear it, you just know that there"s something special there.
Keepin mind that this list is solely based on my opinion and the artists are who I deem to have unique voices. Also, I"mlimited to the scope of artists that I"ve been exposed to so I apologize in advance for notincluding your favorite artist!

Kim Hyun Joong revealed his views on love, dating and marriage.
In a recent interview that took place in a café near Samcheong-dong, Kim Hyun Joong shared his thoughts on dating and marriage.
As he is getting close to turning 30, marriage is no longer a strange word to discuss for the actor.
When asked about his marriage plan, Kim Hyun Joong said, “I don’t think I can get married. I would be 35 years old if I finish my duties in the army. I used to think that I must get married but I’m not sure anymore. I don’t think I can commit myself to family because I enjoy work too much. I think I would consider marriage if I face a dilemma with doing dramas and concerts.”
Then what are his thoughts on dating?
Kim Hyun Joong gave an honest answer again. “It would be a lie if I said I don’t date
Would it be possible for a divorced couple to fall in love with each other again?
In the recently ended tvN drama Emergency Couple, Choi Jin Hyuk acted as ‘Oh Chang Min’ who falls in love with his ex-wife ‘Oh Jin Hee,’ played by Song Ji Hyo.
In a recent interview with Newsen, however, Choi Jin Hyuk waved off as he said, “It’s not an easy thing for a divorced couple to fall in love with each other again.”
He continued, “Of course, it’s possible and it probably happens somewhere. But among the cast members, we said that it’s possible because it’s a drama, especially because Chang Min and Jin Hee hated each other when they split up.”
As personal thoughts are separate from the drama role, what did Choi Jin Hyuk do to play Oh Chang Min, who falls for his ex-wife?
He said, “I constantly thought to myself, ‘Song Ji Hyo is pretty, she is pretty

Choi Jin Hyuk seems to have appeared out of nowhere but he is already in his 9th year in acting. He earned fame by acting as ‘Gu Wol Ryung’ in MBC’s Gu Family Book but that took him eight years.

Last Sunday, power boy group B.A.P returned to New York City for the 2014 version of their “B.A.P Live On Earth” US tour, and created unforgettable memories for the fans lucky enough to land a ticket to the sold-out show.

In light of the tragic sunken ferry incident in South Korea, most of the entertainment industry will be on hold for the next few days.

Currently, at time of writing, there are still currently about 290 missing passengers with many of them being high school students who had been on a trip from school to Jeju Island. Rescue efforts are still under way and with many citizens still awaiting the news about the whereabouts of their loved ones, most of the broadcast stations will be concentrating their efforts on covering the incident and its aftermath.

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
It looks like Taeyang might be trying to win Haru"s heart back (since she"d moved onto G-Dragon and all) as he was snapped in a picture giving her a cute peck on the cheeks! Although she looks a bit alarmed, undoubtedly many fans would love to switch positions with her.
The picture was uploaded onto Big Bang"s official Weibo recently with, "My superstar Haru TAE YANG." In the photo, Tablo looks like a proud father as he hugs his daughter close, not seeming to realize Taeyang is sneaking in a kiss because who can resist those chubby cheeks?

Yiruma, the internationally-renowned pianist-composer from South Korea was in Singapore to perform publicly for the very first time at The Star Performing Arts Center on April 5. All 5,000 tickets were completely sold out. I was so lucky to be able to watch him perform his beautiful melodies; it was even more meaningful because that day was my birthday!
The soft-spoken pianist has a great sense of humor, surprisingly. After opening the concert with “May Be“, Yiruma stood up to greet the 5,000 strong audience.
“Hi Singapore, hi everyone. Wow! This is really wonderful, it’s very scary. It’s scary, but it’s very exciting to be here in Singapore. Are there any Koreans here? Annyeonghaseyo! I’m composer and pianist Yiruma, it’s so nice to meet you. Thank You!”
