If Big Bang’s Seungri and Kang Ha Neul thought they could stop Song Ji Hyo from getting where she was going, they were wrong. So terribly wrong.
On March 23’s broadcast of SBS’ Running Man, the Running Man cast went up against the cast of SBS’ new drama, Angel Eyes.
The members of both teams participated in a relay climb, running up the 63 Building in Seoul. As the mission and competition became fiercer, Seungri tried to block Song Ji Hyo from getting where she needed to go.
Too bad for Seungri, Song Ji Hyo didn’t hesitate in pinning him down and hitting his back, pushing him out of her way. Kang Ha Neul came to Seungri’s rescue, only to find himself on the ground within seconds, grabbing onto Song Ji Hyo’s ankles and yelling she couldn’t leave
The brightly lit up stadium full of orange was wonder in itself.
Compared to the stars that spark up shortly before disappearing in this competitive entertainment industry, Shinhwa, the longest running idol group who has kept its place on top for 16 years, has stayed constant. Or rather, Shinhwa was maturing with the flow of time, writing its own shinhwa (legend).
On March 23, Shinhwa held its 2014 Shinhwa 16th Anniversary Concert – HERE at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium. With both performances on March 22 and 23, a total of 27,000 fans appeared for the group, boasting that it hasn’t lost it yet.
The concert opened up with Scarface from Shinhwa’s 11th album, released in 2013, continuing with Venus and Brand New, turning up the heat from the way beginning. Especially with Brand New being the song that won Shinhwa the highest award at the 2004 Seoul Music Awards, fans exploded when the song began to play, with around 14,000 fans singing along
Actor Kang Ha Neul and BIGBANG’s Seungri were overpowered by Song Ji Hyo on this week’s episode of “Running Man.”

Song Ji Hyo raced up the stairs in order to fulfill a mission in a teamwork battle, but Seungri was determined to prevent her from completing the mission. This was followed by Kang Ha Neul’s attempt to steal her walkie-talkie, and both boys grabbed on to her legs so she couldn’t leave

A lot of people, like myself, are shocked when they find out the real age of a certain celebrity whom they presumed to be younger or older. So which female celebrities were you wrong about? Check out the list below.

Girls’ Generation’s “Mr. Mr.” becomes our new No. 1 song this week, moving up from No. 3 last week. Carrying the strength of four music show wins in last week’s M!Countdown, KBS Music Bank, MBC’s Music Core and Show Champion, “Mr. Mr.” finally moves up to the top spot and distinguish itself from the rest of the strong competitions. Congratulations to Girls’ Generations.
Moving up two spots to No. 2 is 2NE1’s “Come Back Home.” This song won on SBS Inkigayo last week and prevented “Mr. Mr.” from sweeping all music shows. “Come Back Home” was not yet ranked in M!Countdown yet as of last week, and that explains the gap in scoring between this song and “Mr. Mr.”
We only have one brand new song in the top 10 this week and it is right below the top two
Same idea, different feel?
Entertaining duo Hyungdon and Daejun decided to make their own version of Suzy and Kim Soo Hyun‘s commercial for apparel brand Bean Pole.
On March 14, the miss A member wrote on her Twitter, “Bean Pole Outdoor that blocks all wind,” and shared a compilation photo featuring screen caps from the parody video.
In the picture, Hyungdon and Daejun can be seen posing in a dorky manner, showing off their hilarious interpretation of the original scenes. The music drama starring Suzy and Kim Soo Hyun was revealed on March 6, and soon after, the parody by the duo was released. With Hyungdon as Suzy and Daejun as Kim Soo Hyun, their version looks quite similar to the original one, but the atmosphere is definitely far from it
