Dara’s Video Link

During the reunion between the former 2NE1 members, CL revealed that Sandara Park used to be severely underweight.

CL invited Sandara Park and other friends to her house for a Christmas party on the tvN’s Livin’ the Double Life. The two idols embraced their reunion and reminisced about the 2NE1 era.

CL then talked about how she had no choice but to go on a strict diet during their 2NE1 days because Dara had been severely underweight.

“We all had to lose weight during 2NE1 days because of Dara unnie. How are we supposed to stand next to 39kg (86lbs)? I can’t help but look big standing next to her.”

Girls’ Generation Hyoyeon‘s bright and tough personality may make you think that she has high confidence in herself, but that wasn’t the case.

It’s true that before her debut, Hyoyeon was the same optimistic, bright girl. But she revealed on Secret Unnie that her confidence dropped dramatically after a few years after her debut.

“Just by looking at the article, you see that I had so much confidence. It made me think about how hard I worked to debut.

It saddens me to see articles that came out 2~4 years after my debut, describing how I lacked confidence and had a lot of worries on my mind.”

— Hyoyeon

She shed tears as she looked back on the Hyoyeon who blocked out the hardship, which ultimately decreased her confidence

In a recent interview, Hyoyeon revealed that she was able to regain her confidence as she continued to learn and grow as a member of Girls’ Generation! Now, she simply enjoys sharing who she really is without worrying about what others would think.

“As time passed, I felt less burdened by the public’s interest. It became fun to show who I was and share what I loved. In contrast, I realized that I need to live a better life.”

— Hyoyeon

During “Love Whisper”, SinB could be seen trying not to extend her arm too much while following the choreographer.

Buddies are worried for GFRIEND’s SinB as a fancam from their recent Manila concert showed SinB struggling to move her right shoulder.

By the end of the performance, however, she had completely folded her arm behind her back to force her shoulder to stop moving.

At the end of the choreography, the girls are supposed to extend their arms and hold hands. It seemed the SinB was in so much pain she couldn’t even extend her arm for the ending pose.

It’s not the first time she has dislocated her shoulder on stage as well. SinB has a history of dislocating her shoulder, due to being a dancer from a young age.

It appears that she had gone to see the musical in order to support her fellow SM artist, EXO‘s Suho, who was one of the lead characters.

As soon as the post went live, netizens claiming to be EXO fans began attacking her for going to see a member of the group. Many of these malicious attackers are referring to her past relationship with Baekhyun, where she received backlash from EXO fans.

Some netizens have been feeling sorry for Taeyeon as she alone seemed to be receiving excessive criticism for the post. Not much was said when Baekhyun went to see Seohyun’s musical performance.

Moreover, a number of female celebrities also went to support Suho at his musical without facing backlash from netizens.

After seeing what these alleged EXO fans have done to Taeyeon, a large group of EXO-Ls came to her defense and shamed those who criticized Taeyeon for her post.

Super Junior’s Kangin Controversies: Fans Wants Him Back. Where Is He Now?

Blogged By: De De Tillman

Media: Wikipedia

Posted:  Monday August 20, 2018 @ 3:50 am PST

Kangin officially debut as part of 12-member project group Super Junior 05 on 6 November 2005 on SBS‘s music programme Popular Songs, performing their first single, “Twins (Knock Out).

2007: MBC Conflict:

A time-slot dispute occurred between SM Entertainment and MBC when SM insisted to have Kangin stay on SBS’s Explorers of the Human Body instead of MBC’s Sunday Sunday Night Dong-An Club, in which Kangin was a regular host. MBC decided to temporarily ban Super Junior from appearing in any future performances on MBC.

Kangin was replaced by T.O.P of Big Bang as the MC of Show! Music Core. Kangin could also no longer host MBC variety shows Nothing is Impossible and Sunday Sunday Night Dong-An Club until the conflict was resolved.  MBC also demanded to receive an apology from SM Entertainment if SM artists should continue to perform on shows hosted by the channel.

After Kangin left Nothing is Impossible and Sunday Sunday Night Dong-An Club, both shows cancelled due to low ratings.[18] A week later, MBC announced that they invited Super Junior to film an exclusive MBC segment, “Giving Children a New Life” despite their previous decision to ban Super Junior. The entertainment director for MBC claimed that the ban on Super Junior was never official, but just a decision made by the programs’ producers.

2009: Assault Case:

On September 16, 2009, Kangin was arrested for his involvement in a fight between two men that took place outside of a bar in Nonhyeon-dongGangnam-guSeoul. An eye-witness reported that two men entered a room where Kangin and his friend were present and began arguing heatedly.

 Kangin left the bar, but the two men followed him outside and began displaying acts of violence. Another witness reported that Kangin tried to stop the fight.  A nearby surveillance camera caught the brawl, and it was immediately reported to the police.  Kangin was brought into interrogation to aid investigation along with four other suspects. One of the suspects insisted that Kangin assaulted him, but it was later proven that Kangin only reacted for self-defense.[25]

Kangin was dropped from being the main model of Andre Kim‘s fashion show as a result. After Kangin’s appearance in Super Junior’s Super Show 2 concert in Hong Kong, all of Kangin’s future schedules became temporarily postponed.

2009: DUI Hit-and-Run:

On October 16, 2009 around 3am, Kangin collided into a parked taxi that held no one inside, and left the scene of the accident. Five hours later, Kangin turned himself in to the police. He was recorded to have a blood alcohol content of 0.082% when he arrived at the station.[28] Then he failed to show up at the Seoul Gangnam Police Station at 2pm on the same day for further investigation and had to be called in the following day.

SM Entertainment and Kangin released an official public apology shortly after. All of Kangin’s activities were cancelled by SM Entertainment until the end of the year due to Kangin’s actions. A month later Kangin made an appearance in a new clothing company, SPAO’s website. Netizens were enraged due to SM Entertainment’s declaration of the suspension of Kangin’s activities. It was later found out that the photos were taken prior to Kangin’s DUI accident.[30] On 13 January 2010, Kangin was summarily indicted for drunk driving hit-and-run and fined ₩8 million by the Seoul Central District Court.

2016: Second DUI Hit-and-Run:

On May 24, 2016, Kangin was involved in another DUI hit-and-run incident, with a blood alcohol contentof 0.05%. S.M. Entertainment has issued a statement, stating his future activities are cancelled while he reflects on his actions.[32][33] He enters the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office on June 15, 2016, to face questioning over causing a traffic accident while under the influence of alcohol. Prosecutors summarily indicted him on July 7. On September 7, 2016, Kangin was sentenced to pay a ₩7 million ($6,420) fine.

We all know that BLACKPINK‘s Jennie looks fantastic in all of her stage outfits but Jennie doesn’t even need to wear anything special to stand out. She’s always got that sexy and cool style no matter what she wears!

She can wear the simplest outfit and still look 100% awesome!

And the fashion choices that most people avoid, Jennie goes right for them! For instance, not many people could pull off these wide-legged pants but they look ridiculously good on her.

Of course, it isn’t just her exploration of fashion that makes her look so good. Boring browns are no longer so blah when Jennie wears them and fully-buttoned cardigans become the epitome of cool.

Then when she’s wearing a faux-fur jacket she becomes the very meaning of elegance and grace.

“Last time, I became ill from the heat and threw up.”

Joy explained that Seulgi and Yeri were probably the most sensitive to heat and that she and Irene actually enjoyed being in the heat.

“But if you think about it, Seulgi and Yeri are the most active among our five members but they’re both particularly sensitive to the heat.

But for Wendy, me and Irene… Well, I don’t know about Wendy but for Irene and me, I think we tend to enjoy the heat since it’s good for your body.”

Apink‘s Namjoo was in the middle of filming Law Of The Jungle when she suddenly felt her herniated disc begin to stiffen her neck as sharp pains shot through her.

“I know I have a herniated disc, and my neck is starting to hurt a lot.”

She was actually up the past night, trying to stretch out the pain she kept feeling in her waist.

“The night before, my waist started hurting a lot. I kept waking up in the middle of the night.

My neck used to get better if I did some stretches.”

— Namjoo

Namjoo’s pain started getting worse and worse to the point that she couldn’t help but shed tears. She was immediately moved off of the raft and onto a more stable boat.

“I felt so sorry for having to tell people that I was hurting when everyone else was also exhausted.

I literally didn’t know what to do.”

— Namjoo

She was then removed from the group where her arms began numbing from the herniated disc.
