The two have been like family because of their two-year-long run on ‘Healing Camp‘ together, and when asked about Han Hye Jin’s marriage to Ki Sung Yong, he revealed that he actually didn’t know about it either until recently as the two had kept things quiet until their announcement.
He excitedly congratulated them saying, “I had no idea. I was so surprised. I congratulate her so much. She must be happy. When they marry, they’ll live very happily. Han Hye Jin is very kind and Ki Sung Yong is also a very good person. I hope they have a good life.”
As mentioned previously, Han Hye Jin and Ki Sung Yong began their relationship in January of this year, and confirmed dating rumors in March. Although it’s been only 4 months into their relationship, with their love and respect for one another, the two decided on the next step of getting married.

However, despite looking positively happy in the photo, she and Taecyeon will apparently suffer from an awkward moment in the upcoming episode when they differ in their response to MBLAQ‘s G.O‘s question. During the recording of the episode coming up, G.O asked, “You guys are currently in a faux-marriage, but do you want to date in real life?”. While Taecyeon responded “Yes”, Gui Gui had blurted out “No”.

According to a few broadcast representatives, Kyuhyun is said to have already completed his first recording for the show on the 9th. Minho, who was one of the original MCs, will be stepping down from his position with his final appearance on the May 12th broadcast.
‘Mamma Mia’ gathers celebrities and their mothers who share behind-the-scenes stories on their childhood, and is led by three MCs. With Minho’s leave, Kyuhyun will make up the trio with Park Mi Sun and Lee Young Ja as the replacement MC.
Jo Hyun Ah PD explained that Minho’s departure is due to his conflicting schedule, revealing, “Since the beginning, Minho was only supposed to film for one month due to SHINee’s Japan tour. Minho’s portion will be aired until this week’s episode”
The PD also revealed why Kyuhyun was selected sharing, “Because of his hosting on MBC‘s ‘Radio Star‘, we believed he is a more experienced MC compared to other idols. Upon seeing his good teamwork with MCs Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Guk Jin, Yoo Se Yoon, and more, we feel that he will work well with Lee Young Ja and Park Mi Sun as well.”

After the concert, Dani met up with Brown and when she mentioned that she’s training as a member of T-ara, he showed immediate interest as he’s been taking a closer look at K-pop lately thanks to Psy.
Seeing T-ara’s unit’s MV for “Countryside Life“, which Dani showed him, Brown shared his wish to collaborate with T-ara N4 and invited the subunit to his music video filming on the 11th. However, as the unit has their performance at ‘Dream Concert’ in Korea, T-ara N4 will be heading over to meet him at Los Angeles a day later on the 12th.

Moon Hee Jun revealed how hurt he was from false articles that claimed he’d committed suicide.
He was a guest on a recent recording of ‘Quiz to Change the World‘, and he talked about the dark times when he suffered from hate comments. He said, “For 6 years, I only put out music and performed at concerts. I never came out on variety shows, since whenever I opened my mouth, it would all be misunderstood. Some articles came out saying that I committed suicide because I was releasing music but never was seen promoting it. When those rumors were spreading, random people would sometimes see me and say, ‘Huh? He’s alive?’. I heard that for around 2 years.”
He added, “Since I kept hearing that, I thought, is it weird that I’m alive? I was okay, but it hurt because so many people around me were like that. So when people talk of the past, I get hurt a little.”
Thankfully, Moon Hee Jun is famous for winning over all of the past hate comments and planting a successful solo career as both a musician and a TV personality.
The New Zealand arc of ‘Laws of the Jungle‘ has come to an end.
Even before the airing of the first episode, the show became embroiled in controversy after the agency head of Park Bo Young posted commentschallenging the truth of the reality program. Even though he apologized and the staff of the show remained adamant that the show was completely sincere, evidence arose that some of the elements on the show were false and it rapidly spread on the internet. The show issued an apology, but despite the controversy, the variety show had maintained its #1 spot in its timeslot.
The controversial arc came to an end with the May 10th episode. At the end, Kim Byung Man said, “This place is the end and it’s also another start. I worked really hard to go back to how I was in the beginning. New Zealand was a little harder for me [than other places] personally. It was more intense. The environment was good, but the conditions we had were intense. We’ve come here to train so that ‘Laws of the Jungle’ can get stronger. Please let us go on longer with a more developed look next time. I hope this goes on forever.”
With all the hardship that the cast went through, no one can argue that everyone worked incredibly hard. The Himalayan arc of ‘Laws of the Jungle’ will begin airing on May 17.

Defconn recalled a hilarious story on a recent episode of MBC‘s ‘I Live Alone‘.
He revealed, “When I had a trip in Vietnam, all the prices on items were so cheap, so one day I bought 30 cans of beer for 20,000 KRW (approximately $18 USD). At the end of the trip, I had a few cans leftover, so I decided to pack it together with my check-in luggage. However, the custom agents thought it was a liquid bomb. They thought I was a terrorist.”
He made everyone burst into laughter when he revealed, “After that, from now on whenever I’m in customs, I take off my hat and sunglasses, trying to look as nice as possible.”
Defconn always makes jokes about how his face makes him look so evil, and complains that once people get to know him, he’s actually one of the nicest people around. A prime case of not judging a book by its cover.
1,000 students came out to hear Psy give his lecture at Harvard’s Memorial Church. Recalling back to his four years at nearby Boston University where he studied management, he said, “Who could have known I’d come back to Boston after 14 years and lecture at Harvard? It’s weird. I think that’s why life is so beautiful. I gotta be humble. This doesn’t happen to everybody.”
He confessed, “During college, my nickname was ‘WWF’. It’s not World Wrestling Federation but stood for Withdrawal, Withdrawal, and Fail.” He also shared humorous stories of trying to obtain medicine for his stomach with his limited English and only knowing a few words such as ‘taxi’ and ‘bus’.
On the success of “Gangnam Style“, he said, “It was like an accident, and it doesn’t happen often. The reason why people all over the world like me even though I’m not good looking nor fit is because I’m fun. I’m happy and surprised that even though people don’t know Korean, they enjoy my music and my performances. I can’t say I am the best, but I can say that I’ve tried my best for the last 13 years as an artist.”
Not many can pull the look off, but Thunder was an exception as he looked good with his new hot pink color. Just like Seungho, his new hair color may signify that the MBLAQ comeback everyone’s been waiting for may be just around the corner.
With 2NE1 also rumored to be having a comeback soon, we may just see Thunder and his older sister Dara promoting at the same time!
How do you like Thunder’s new hair?

MBLAQ‘s Mir befriended a terminally ill cancer patient.
Channel A‘s documentary ‘Like A Miracle‘ filmed the story of Kim Dong Hee, a 20 year old who has suffered from cancer since he was in the 10th grade. He was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma and spent three years of high school in and out of the hospital. However, he never gave up on his life and even took the college entrance exam to successfully become a college student. In a tragic turn of events, even when the tumor was removed from his spine, the cancer cells had already spread to his lungs, and he even stopped his chemotherapy treatments.
When Mir heard of Kim Dong Hee’s story, he pushed aside all of his other schedules and requested that wanted to appear on the show. He revealed that when he was young, he had problems with his lungs and he had to be hospitalized for a long time, so he could somewhat relate.
Before they met, Mir prepared a handmade lunch for Kim Dong Hee, making sure to include the meat that Kim Dong Hee loved. They talked for a long time and Mir told Kim Dong Hee to call him hyung. Mir then went on to help Kim Dong Hee as much as he could to fulfill the list of things Kim Dong Hee wanted to do, and even prepared a surprise birthday party.
Looks like Mir really has a heart of gold! The documentary will air on May 12.
