Lee Hyori was featured in Elle magazine’s March edition and her photos were a sure reminder of who owns the title of Korea’s sexiest diva.

Lee Hyori’s photoshoot with Elle magazine took place in a vintage apartment in New York, and her sex appeal and stylish fashion sense reminded everyone that she was once the epitome of sexy. In these photos, Lee Hyori rocked vintage outfits to match the photoshoot background such as a floral bomber jacket and patchy denim shorts, as well as suits to highlight her charisma.

Lee Hyori’s absence from the music scene led to a change in her image to a more simple and reserved one, as she opted to live on Jeju Island, in a rustic yet modern cottage-like house.

With the photoshoot in Elle, she proved once again that she could bring sexy back whenever she pleased.

K.A.R.D confessed that dancing provocatively with the opposite sex members of the group was the most awkward part of being in a co-ed group.

K.A.R.D is unique in that they’re one of the only idol groups with both female and male members. With K.A.R.D, the co-ed concept is fresh and group dynamics are still new for the members and fans as well.

In their songs “Don’t Recall” and “Oh NaNa” the female members twerk during the dance breaks. As the male dancers are actual members and not just back dancers, K.A.R.D admitted that this made things awkward at first as the dance was provocative.

As the members got closer, they got used to dancing like this. K.A.R.D’s Jiwoo said the following regarding the dancing.

“Even though it is uncomfortable to dance like this with our members, we had to get used to it because even if it’s awkward – it’s more awkward for viewers if they sense that tension between us. That’s why we got over the awkward stages and did our best with the dancing.”

– K.A.R.D Jiwoo

It was also brought up that they members have had to change clothes in the same area before.  Now they need at least one extra room for changing, but in the past, it’s suggested that they had to change together. All members nodded in agreement that it was awkward.

The members’ contract with CJ E&M and B2M Entertainment have yet to expire and the companies are currently under discussion of how to deal with this matter.

BESTie appeared on an episode of  Noisey, a documentary series on VICELAND that explores “the cultures and artists behind some of the world’s most compelling music scenes.” During the episode, BESTie gave an interview about their lives as K-Pop idols.

The girls were asked how their lives had been affected since becoming idols and began joking about how their lives were almost the same, except when it came to dating.

They go on to talk about the reason that many agencies prevent their idols from dating. They explained that “typically, idol fans want us to be their boyfriends or girlfriends” and that if an idol is revealed to be dating someone, it can jeopardize the group’s popularity.

After the interview, BESTie’s managers can be heard criticizing the group for their comments and for being too open about the real reasons that they do not date.

You can watch the full episode of Noisey: Seoul, as well as the other episodes on VICELAND’s website.
