5. Who’s the Best? Part Deux
If only I could do this to my house, although I probably wouldn’t be able to afford the electricity bill. For some strange reason, I feel a part three coming on for next week.
4. INFINITE gets no respect
from their puppies. The boys are taking care of three puppies for the variety show Birth of a Family and look what they come home to… no, not our CD! At least they didn’t end up with the ponies.
3. Gummy is a Singer
For Gummy‘s latest performance on the reality show I Am Singer, she brought along a dongsaeng for moral support. The fact that her dongsaeng was Big Bang‘s T.O.P. definitely paid off during the performance. I can’t get over how all the sunbaes were such T.O.P. fan girls/boys all wanting his autograph.
2. Running Man gets lots of love in Hong Kong
The cast of Running Man visited Hong Kong and the fans there showed them lots of love– from the airport to their final destination of the night where an estimated 5,000 fans gathered. With guests actress Lee Min-jung and C.N. Blue‘s Jung Yong-hwa (who I think is the guest with the most appearances at five) and a special appearance by Jackie Chan as their task master around Hong Kong. Here’s one of my fave clips from the show where Song Ji-hyo doesn’t mess around with guessing–she just asks the fans for help. What’s Running Man without some cheating?
1. Whenever You Play That Song
I get goosebumps. Huh Gak released his latest MV for “Whenever You Play That Song” featuring up and coming girl rapper LE. The MV stars actor Yoo Seung-ho in a sad love song produced by Shinsadong Tiger.
