The photo showed a snow sculpture that was very much like the Psy in real life. It posed in the ‘horse dance’ stance, and even had on Psy’s trademark sunglasses. The sculpture was created for the The Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival which has been held annually since 1963.
Upon seeing the photos, fans commented, “Wow, some people are really talented“, “I wonder how long that took to make..“, and “That looks really cool.”
INFINITE‘s Sunggyu ‘interviewed’ himself for LOEN TV and the video was recently shared on YouTube.
The interview starts off humorously as interviewer-Sunggyu asks himself if he had eaten. Interviewee-Sunggyu answers that he has not, and then interviewer-Sunggyu says, “Ah, I knew it. So I ordered us some pizza“.
The two Sunggyus then talked about his album, including his follow up track “I Need You“. Interviewer-Sunggyu asks interviewee-Sunggyu to sing a bit of the song, to with the interviewee answers, “I’m a bit embarrassed because it’s in front of myself…“.
Other humorous parts include when the interviewer-Sunggyu says, “INFINITE has to do well“, to which interviewee-Sunggyu responds, “I’m INFINITE, too“. The interviewer then expresses his surprise that Sunggyu is part of INFINITE, saying, “Really?“.
Questions of fairness have been raised for the ‘2012 Melon Music Awards‘.
The award that raised the biggest question was the ‘Netizen Popularity Award‘. According to netizen votes, JYJ‘s Junsu ranked #1 with 185,519 votes for his ‘Nice Guy‘ OST, ”Love Is Like Snow“. However, the award went instead to B2ST with “Midnight“, who only received 147,310 votes.
Unlike the other awards in which netizen votes only count for 30% of the final result with 70% coming from music charts, netizen votes count double (60%) for the ‘Netizen Popularity Award’, so many fans are questioning the outcome. An industry representative who requested anonymity said, “It looks like it’s a similar situation to how Junsu’s group JYJ used to receive limitations by his previous label“.
The question has gotten even worse because the hosts of the awards had said, “The core of this award is fairness, popularity, and professionalism. It will be a fair award because it will be decided by the music chart rank and netizen votes.”
Actor Lee Hyun Woo was featured as the cover model for the December issue of Chinese magazine ‘Trendy‘.
A ‘Trendy’ representative stated, “Lee Hyun Woo garnered a high-profile through the dramas ‘God of Study‘ and ‘Man From the Equator‘. He recently gained even more popularity through his role in ‘To the Beautiful You‘ and the interest around Lee Hyun Woo grew, leading him to become a rising star in Taiwan.”
Key East Entertainment also stated, “During October, [Lee Hyun Woo] held fan meetings in Singapore and Malaysia which attracted over 5,000 fans, showing his rising popularity. He is currently garnering interest through his appearances on interviews and broadcast.”
In other news, Lee Hyun Woo is currently starring in the movie, ‘Secret to Greatness‘, and was recently appointed as the new ‘Inkigayo‘ MC.
The secret behind a Block B photo brought laughter to fans.
The original professionally done photo showed Jaehyo‘s photo from Block B’s 2013 calendar, which showed Jaehyo posing sexily for the camera. In the photo, Jaehyo was standing behind what looked like some cool special effects.
However, how the special effects were created was revealed in a second photo. The contrasting photo shows Jaehyo and the other staff members holding sticks of raw spaghetti noodles to create the special effect. Not only so, but unlike his fashionable top, Jaehyo was wearing sweatpants and flip flops on the bottom, causing further laughter from the fans.
Fans commented, “Wow the flip flops made me laugh so hard“, “From just the bottom it looks like an old man… How can it be Jaehyo on top? Haha“, and “That’s creative..“.
