The “real” music battle starts in May?


Even though we’re already seeing a competition of comebacks from many artists including Rain and Lee Hyori, it’s looking like the month of May will be just as competitive as April, if not more.

With the two top stars likely going to dominate this month and June’s FIFA World Cup approaching, many artists are looking to aim May as their comeback. After all, it’d be wise to avoid competition with Rain & Lee Hyori in April and also stay away from the dates of June 11th – July 11th, when Koreans will have their eyes glued to broadcasts of the FIFA World Cup.

It is also now speculated that 2PM, who is planning to comeback at the end of April, will push back their comeback date to May instead of April because of Rain and Lee Hyori’s delay of comeback from the naval ship tragedy.

Artists who are scheduling to comeback in May include the Wonder Girls (May 15th),SS501 (May 1st), 2NE14minute, Se7en and Son Dambi.

Son Dambi for one has pushed her comeback twice – first she scheduled her return for March, then dealyed to April, and is now shooting for a date in May. Regarding the delays, her agency stated, “It’s not because of the naval ship tragedy; it’s because we want to make Son Dambi’s album more complete and perfect.

The Wonder Girls, who originally planned to come back in April, will release their U.S debut album in countries around the world including Korea on May 15th, and the girls are planning to cross promote between America and Korea.

One of the related sources from the music industry speculated, “In my opinion, it’s useless to waste your energy coming back in April. A lot of the agencies are organizing their artists to comeback in May. In this coming May, we will see one of the fiercest gayo battles we’ve ever seen.

2NE1’s CL wants a kiss


2NE1’s fierce rapping leader CL is known for her bad girl tough exterior but it turns out she’s got a secret feminine side as she reveals that no matter how tough a girl gets, there’s always room for romance.

Via her me2DAY, CL wrote, “Give me a kiss.” and uploaded a photo of her sticking her cheek out towards the camera for a virtual kiss.

Female fans who saw this said, “Sorry but I can’t do that. I’m a girl“, “I don’t want to. I’ll kiss Park Bom“, “Even if I don’t do it, aren’t there many others who would?” and “Why did you become so pretty?“.

Of course, the male crowd responded in a much more positive and romantic way saying, “Come here immediately“, “I kissed you but why aren’t you responding to me?!” and “I want to kiss your lips rather than the cheeks“.

T.O.P is most wanted by netizens to be campus couple with


Korean music portal site monkey3 recently conducted a survey for the “most wanted idol as a campus couple” and placing at the top was…Big Bang’s T.O.P!

The week long survey ran on from March 26th to the first of April, with a total of 1,404 submissions.

Big Bang’s fierce rapper T.O.P took the crown with 330 (24.4%) votes. Netizens described him saying, “He’s manly but also has a sly charisma. He’s serious but relaxed at the same time.” But this is totally understandable, after all, one look at those sexy evil eyes can make a man melt. Oh and women too.

In second place was “the nation’s little sister” Moon Geun Young, who is currently starring in her new MBC drama Cinderella’s Sister. Third went to High Kick Through The Roof actress Shin Se Kyung. Netizens expressed, “If I had become a couple with either of them, it would become a dream-like campus life.

Actor Lee Minho and 2NE1’s Park Bom was 4th and 5th respectively.

2NE1 gets fierce for new endorsement


A few days ago, talk of 2NE1’s comeback concept fired up after an unexplained photo of the quartet in a distinctive concept was posted on Dara’s me2day. Unfortunately, the rumors have proven to be false as this is actually a concept for an upcoming endorsement with the shopping mall 11st, but hey, it means more eye candy for Blackjacks!

As the girls have endorsed the 11st in the past, this is the latest segment to their partnership with the internet shopping mall. A recent segment from E News reveals more from the photoshoot, including some shots of the girls posing with red buckets of popcorn. With their elegant yet vibrant look, it looks like this is a step away from the norm, especially when compared to their matching red-and-white outfits from their delivery commercials.

The girls also talked about their earlier experiences of delivering packages to customers of 11st. “I went to building [for the delivery] and I think they were expecting me because they had a present waiting for me,” Dara reminisced. So I delivered the package and received the gift so I was really happy.

When I arrived at the building, they actually asked me where Sandara Park was so…I had a different kind of experience,” CL confessed.

The leader wrapped up the video with a message to the program’s viewers, saying, “2NE1’s first album is currently in production so please stay tunedE News and viewers, stay healthy. Yes, fighting. Thank you!

Meanwhile, CL followed Dara’s lead and posted a picture on her own me2day account as well. To be honest, I question 2NE1’s fashion choices sometimes, but the pattern on this onesie by Alexander McQueen is kind of cool:

2NE1 is set for a comeback later this month, so expect more on this group soon!
