On the December 30th broadcast of the program, Ailee and Amber made a secret visit at Seogwipo Girls’ Middle School in Jeju and entertained the students through games and a concert. However, in between their casual conversations with the students, a middle schooler asked Ailee, “Unni, why are you so pretty,” to which someone yelled in reply, “Because of surgery!”

Ailee, who was initially taken aback by the reply, confessed that she did not have surgery done to her face and further proved it to the students with the statement, “Would you like to feel my face?” 

Interested in her statements, some of the students unexpectedly moved forward and touched Ailee’s face. The unexpected act was eventually stopped by MC Lee Dong Yeob. 

It was also during the same segment where the singer revealed her actualweight and height as she answer “16452” as a password to a question, revealing that she was 164 centimetres tall and weights 52 kilograms. The blunt reply impressed the students praising her for her frank and easygoing nature.

Meanwhile, Amber also joins Ailee which started airing today on MBC Music.

Enjoying the moment

The two don’t want to ruin the kind of relationship they have because of a label. KC shared that she is giving Paulo (he has a son by actress LJ Reyes) space “to grow as a man” and is always there to support him.

“Ayaw naming masira kung ano man ang meron kami. Bilang babae, respeto ko iyon na bigyan siya ng space to grow as a man. Ang importante sa akin, andito ako to improve ang buhay niya, hindi para maging liability,” she said.

Paulo agreed he and KC are enjoying what they have, while working on their priorities and goals. This connection seems more important to them than labeling their relationship.

“Hindi ko sasabihin na walang label kasi we’re best friends, we have this connection. We have different priorities as individuals. Focused naman kami sa mga gusto naming gawin sa buhay. Ayaw ko kasing i-brand as ligaw kasi maganda ang mga nangyayari sa amin. It’s more of what’s happening, it’s more of the connection and the kasiyahan na magkasama kami.”

Coko Entertainment Artists and Staff Unable To Be Paid

Coko Entertainment find themselves having trouble paying their staff and artist signed under them following the sudden disappearance of their CEO Kim Woo Jong, who allegedly embezzled money from the company.

On November 27th, CEO Kim Woo Jong disappeared with an uncertain amount of the company’s funds, which were meant to pay their artists, staff, future projects and current businesses. It was revealed in a latest update that the CEO had halted payments to artists who had either opted out of the company or whose contracts had expired since August.

Currently, Coko Entertainment is attempting to figure out how much the CEO had taken off with, as the unknown amount has put a halt on police investigations, who are also attempting to track down the missing businessman. A representative with the company stated, “We are focusing on trying to figure out exactly how much of the company’s money as well as money that was meant for artists and employees.”

Once a certain amount of how much money went missing is found and how much damage this has caused, the agency is planning to also request an investigation from Interpol. Coko Entertainment and police have already released a warrant out for Kim Woo Jung.

However, the current problem still raises the question, will the artists under the company take legal action soon? For now, they have remained quiet in hopes the agency will figure things out.

“Since the artists were all with us for a long time, they want to help the company figure the situation out,” said the agency.

But this non-payment trend will surely become a problem for the artists, as their livelihood depends on getting paid. Many artists have already nullified their contract with the company, while others have decided to resign. Either way, many have still not been paid from August to November.

Coko Entertainment was the host of the Busan National Comedy Festival and focused on expanding the culture of comedy within Korea. With Kim Jun Ho at the forefront, the company made a name as an innovator in the industry but are faced with a giant obstacle through this incident.

All the employees are on an indefinite hiatus as well. Coko Entertainment stated, “Kim Jun Ho who spend so much time and money is wounded, we are trying to figure things out with Kim Jun Ho leading everyone.”

KC understands Paulo has other priorities and responsibilities, the same way she has her own.

“I think between us, we know naman what we have, what we feel for each other. Honestly, ayaw ko lang siya ma-pressure for anything. He’s 26, tapos ako 28. I’m older than him by a couple of years. Siyempre ako may mga priorities ako na nag-iiba. Suddenly, narerealize ko na gusto ko ng ganito, ng ganyan. Mahirap to talk about relationship because he’s also coming from a different situation na iba din yung priorities namin. Kaya ayaw din naming i-label kasi doon din kami hindi nagmi-meet, to be honest.”

An arrest warrant for former Korean Air Vice President Cho Hyuna after prosecutors found her guilty of violating aviation law, along with other charges such as coercion and interference in the execution of duty. 

On December 24th, Yonhap News reported that prosecutors received the arrest warrant for Cho Hyuna, the daughter of Korean Air’s CEO, for her recent “macadamia nuts” incident. After investigations began last week, Cho Hyuna allegedly denied that she had physically assaulted the said employee, which did not coincide with with passengers’ testimonies after witnessing her push the flight attendant.

The prosecutors in charge of the case also received an arrest warrant for another executive after it was found that he ordered existing Korean Air employees to delete the original report of the incident.

Meanwhile, a hearing is scheduled for next week in order to review the arrest warrant for Cho Hyuna.

Cho Hyuna, the eldest daughter of Korean Air CEO Cho Yang Ho, tendered her resignation earlier this month after receiving criticisms and outrage for her “macadamia nuts” incident on board one of Korean Air’s flights. It was reported that the has ordered the cabin crew chief to leave after serving her macadamia nuts in a bag instead of a plate.  The incident caused the flight, along with more than 250 passengers, to have a 11-minute delayed arrival at Incheon International Airport.

Actor Yoo Seung Ho has revealed what his ideal type of woman is, and talked about who he wants to marry in the future during a short interview at his first fan meeting following his military discharge on December 4th.

On December 21st at the White Waterdrop Art Center in Seoul, Yoo Seung Ho held his very first official fan meet following his release from his 2-year mandatory military service, where he answered several questions regarding his military duties, recent whereabouts, and future plans.

When the young actor was asked when his happiest moment while in the military was, he answered, “The moment of freedom right before going to bed after a long roll call.” When asked a silly question such as, “What did you eat do become this handsome?” Yoo Seung Ho answered with a smile, “My mother’s food.

The host of the event asked the actor which female celebrities he missed the most whole serving in the military, to which he gave an honest answer, “I missed them all.

However, when asked about his plans on having a relationship or marriage, the actor answered, “About having a relationship, I’ll let you know when I actually start dating. As for marriage, I’d like someone the same age as me. I can go four years apart, though, if I had to.

The young star also added in regards to marriage, “I want to marry a normal, non-celebrity woman,” where he continued to explain his ideal type, “I like innocent and pure women. After serving in the military, my ideal type changed. Now I like women with long, wavy hair.

Many female fans and netizens have begun despising the fact that they do not fit in the criteria for the actor’s ideal type, leaving playful and joking comments such as, “Seung Ho, you are so much younger than me so you probably won’t like me, but I love you!” “You’re such a perfect guy, but I’m not your ideal type! Sobs!” and, “If only I was your ideal type, Seung Ho!
