YG Entertainment has revealed that Akdong Musician‘s third title track will be “Give Love” from their debut album, “Play,” through an image posted on yg-life.com. The image shows the Akdong Musician siblings dressed in white and smiling widely with their eyes closed. The Korean words read, “The third title track chosen by everyone has been decided as ‘Give Love.’”
It previously stated that Akdong Musician would have three title tracks with corresponding music video releases. The first was “200%” and the second was “Melted.” While the music video for “200%” was already released, the “Melted” video comes out April 14. It has not yet been revealed when the music video for “Give Love” will be released.
Akdong Musician’s “200%,” as well as its studio album “Play,” has been performing very well on music charts
“I Need Romance 3″ Episode 7 - 8 Recap by Couch-Kimchi:
This drama zips through relationships faster than a CW teen show. At this point, it’s like an American sitcom with 1-episode relationships except that instead of main characters dating quirky guest stars, they are dating other main characters.
Having said that, I found this week’s episodes a little interesting.
We learn that for the two months Sweet Potato has lived with Joo Yeon, he’s been her unpaid homemaker and caretaker while she’s been too busy to relax and enjoy a meal. She doesn’t really stop till the night she cries after disappointing her sunbae. After resting on Wan’s comforting shoulders for a bit, she suddenly perks up, announces that she’s hungry and rummages through the fridge for something to eat
If asked “What is the first Korean music you were introduced to?” how would you respond? Fans from the 90′s might say H.O.T., Seo Taiji and Boys, g.o.d, Fin.k.l and etc. More recent fans may respond with Girls’ Generation, Big Bang, Wonder Girls, 2NE1, and etc. However, if you were to ask the same question to an American in the 1960′s, they would most likely respond with “The Kim Sisters.”
Wait, the Kim Sisters? Who in the world are they? “The Kim Sisters” was a popular female music trio from Korea composed of sisters Sook-ja, Ai-ja, and Mia (Mia is actually a cousin of the two, but was considered a sister) who battled poverty and hardships on their journey to becoming a top act in the glittering light filled city of Las Vegas, as well as becoming a favorite guest on the popular Sunday night variety show “Ed Sullivan Show

Hi Soompiers, and Happy New Year 2014!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season! Time simply flies past, doesn’t it? It feels like yesterday when Christmas decorations hit the store shelves, but now we are already trying to stick to our New Year’s resolutions and become better versions of ourselves. And talking of resolutions…
To start the year off on a fresh note, I decided to share with you some useful information on coming to Korea, mainly to study. I am sure there are many of you who have been wondering how to visit Korea or how to live here for a longer period of time. Trust me, I have been there, and I would now like to share my experiences with you and give you tips that you might find helpful when planning your stay.
Just to give you a short introduction of myself and my past, I stayed in Korea as a high school exchange student from February 2010 until January 2011, visited Korea for two weeks in March 2012, and finally moved here in February 2013

A secret never stay hidden forever, the truth always prevails. No matter how hard people are trying to hide their secrets, their problems, sooner or later, people will discover them. For Jae Hak and Eun Jin; they know they cannot hide their relationship forever; they’re not naive but obviously they don’t realize that Mi Kyung has already found out about their “humane relationship”. People say the quiet ones usually are the ones who’ll attack and cause extensive damages; so they’d better get ready because Mi Kyung will do anything she can to “torture” them.
One Warm Word Episode 3 Recap by Beatuscorner:
Jae Hak pulls out micro memory card from his car’s (cctv) camera and asks his assistant to take his car for a service first thing tomorrow morning and to tell him if there’s something odd about the car
Prime Minister and I - Episode 1 Recap by Dramabeans:
Next in the KBS rom-com lineup is Prime Minister and I, whose light and breezy tone took me by surprise. I knew to prepare myself for the cute, but I didn’t expect it to also stir the heartstrings in the first hour. There’s promise and potential in a story that moves fairly quickly that contains both heartwarming and funny notes. And damn, a prime minister has never looked this good.
Even though Prime Minister and I took in last place at 5.9% against its competitors (Empress Ki [♥] led the pack with 20.2% and A Warm Word followed with 6.8%), maybe a contract marriage is just the kind of hijinks medicine I need.
EPISODE 1 RECAP
We open at a banquet hall where preparations are underway, leading up to the arrival of our hero, Prime Minister KWON YUL (Lee Beom-soo) and his wife, NAM DA-JUNG (Yoon-ah), who greet the roomful of dignitaries with a smile
Prime Minister and I: Episode 1 RECAP by Drama Beans
We open at a banquet hall where preparations are underway, leading up to the arrival of our hero, Prime Minister KWON YUL (Lee Beom-soo) and his wife, NAM DA-JUNG (Yoon-ah), who greet the roomful of dignitaries with a smile.
But there’s a different story that lies beneath those adoring smiles as the power couple turns to each other… and exchange looks of distaste.
An imagined Matrix style fight scene points to a more tense and hostile relationship between them. And while the world may regard her husband as a respected public figure, our heroine doesn’t share in that opinion because, well, they’re in a contract marriage
What a cute teaser concept for Let’s Eat, the cutely named tvN romantic comedy series starring Lee Soo-kyung (I Summon You Gold) and Yoon Doo-joon (IRIS 2). (In Korean, the title is purposely misspelled to be slangy.) The show looks cute and bright, based on the previews, intermingling love and food with a nice dash of humor sprinkled in. It also happens to be right on-trend with foodie TV shows all the rage these days.
I was intrigued when I first learned of the show because it sounded like it would be taking a fresh approach to the drama format — the producers previously worked on the long-running cable series Rude Miss Young-ae, which mixed mockumentary styling with its (totally scripted) plots.Lee Soo-kyung plays a woman with a proud, confident air… until she’s in front of food and then all bets are off
To create a complete character, a writer, director, actor, and staff must think about every detail, starting from the clothes, gait, speech, and even to the hair.
In the quickly changing and over-saturated Korean entertainment industry, many actors feel the necessity to change their appearance to get into the character and to help the audience differentiate between the various roles the actor has played. In particular, the hairstyle plays an important role, often acting as a shorthand to describe a character, with curly hair representing an unruly, wild, and even comical personality, and straight hair representing a straight-laced and/or sophisticated character. The hair length often matters too, with the “sweet” heroine sporting long and soft hair, and the second female lead portraying an evil character with short and sleek hair
