On the latest episode of Three Meals a Day, 2PM‘s Taecyeon shared a homemade drink with Park Shin Hye.

tvN’s reality cooking show Three Meals a Day included both Park Shin Hye and 2PM’s Taecyeon in their current season. On the last episode, the two stars, along with the other cast members, went outside at night to enjoy a meal outdoors.

Combining some apple mint leaves and sparkling water, Taecyeon tried to create a non-alcoholic mojito for the others to try. Despite their initial reaction to the way Taecyeon was making the drink, the others ultimately enjoyed it.

In order to make the drink special for Park Shin Hye, the idol attempted to fancy up the mojito, adding a mint leaf on top. Aside from his efforts, the mint leaf fell off, sparking laughter among the others.

A 2nd year middle school girl, who is an avid fan of EXO, and her mother, who didn’t like the fact that she was an EXO-L, were featured on SBS’ Same Bed, Different Dreams

The young fan, Songji, confessed she spends 24 hours of her day thinking and watching EXO and her mother was unhappy and could not understand why she spent so much of her time and money on EXO and buying EXO related products.

At this point Songji confessed the true reason behind her love of EXO. She revealed that when she was in sixth grade, her parents did not have much time for her due to the fact that her older sister was very sick. She had to deal with the loneliness and the depression that came with it by herself. She confessed that she even attempted to hurt herself as the result of her depression.

That’s when she came across EXO and found security and a sense of community in their fandom. She stated that by becoming a fan she became more social with her friends talking to them about EXO.

Chanyeol even appeared as a surprise guest for Songji.

[+ 1467, – 106] Even besides her situation it’s natural for a girl her age to go crazy over celebrities. She does appear to be on the extreme side but it won’t last too long. The real problem are adults who do sasaeng activities.

[+ 1111, – 88] It’s natural for girls her age to like celebrities.

[+ 994, – 266] Their parents’ hard earned money all goes to a celebrity that you’ve never even ate together with. Do you guys really like celebrities that much..

Posted:Monday May 18, 2015 @ 2:45 a.m PST

With unsettled lawsuits still in the air between former EXO members Kris and Luhanand SM Entertainment, a final decision to settle with an appointed arbitrator has been made.

According to the judicial pool on May 18th, the Seoul Central District Court ruled and appointed an official arbitrator and is forcing compulsory mediation for the contract nullification lawsuits against SM Entertainment by Kris and Luhan.

If a settlement offer is not accepted by the warring party, the justice department may take the authority in their own hands and force a reconciliation settlement using the compulsory mediation system.

The justice department stated that if both parties, Kris and Luhan vs SM Entertainment, both do not voice an objection to this ruling within the next two weeks, the compulsory mediation will act as both a settlement and a final ruling.

Both Kris and Luhan’s attorneys stated to Star News, “We are currently reviewing the compulsory arbitration forwarded to us by the justice department, but we cannot release any detailed information regarding the case.

SM Entertainment, on the other hand, have not made any comments regarding the compulsory mediation ruling. However, they did state that, “When [these stars] have no concrete reason or proof to give up [their career] and are hiring the same attorneys to use the same exact tactics to [leave the group or company], it just shows that once they have debuted and promoted with the group and have gotten popular as a celebrity, they begin ignoring all contracts made with that agency and the agency’s interests to leave for their own benefit.

Both Kris and Luhan and SM Entertainment have been battling a difficult lawsuit, followed by multiple other countersuits, and may finally be reaching a settlement after the Seoul District Courts have come to the decision to appoint an arbitrator to force a mediation of reconciliation.
