YoonA Give Lee Seung the Green Light on “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook”

Girls’ GenerationsYoonA blushed after receiving a question about her boy friend, Lee Seung Gi.

On March 14, Girls’ Generation appeared on KBS 2TV’s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook,” and answered questions relating to how girls confirm if a boy is interested in them though a game called “Green Light.” 

Yoo Hee Yeol passed out glow sticks to the members of Girls’ Generation and asked them to raise their glow sticks if the statement he made was a sign that a boy is interested.

MC Yoo Hee Yeol asked YoonA, “A close sunbae says half jokingly and half seriously that you are his ideal type. Does it mean he’s interested?” YoonA smiled bashfully and confirmed that it is a sign by raising her glow stick. The audience’s reaction to her answer was explosive.

Yoo Hee Yeol then asked Sooyoung, “A church oppa keeps calling you to his gatherings.” However, she did not raise her glow stick saying, “He might be inviting me because it may seem like I have no plans.” The audience displayed dissatisfaction to her answer and Sooyoung aroused laughter as she gave an awkward expression on her face.

K-Pop Hit or Miss: Kim Min Hee's Refreshing Style

On March 6, Kim Min Hee walked the red carpet at the VIP premiere of "Monster." The model turned actress, best known for her starring role in 2008 film "Some Like It Hot" alongside Lee Mi Sook and Wonder Girls member Sohee, was as refreshing as a tall glass of cool water.

Kim Min Hee wore a pale blue button down shirt tucked into navy blue trousers which showed off her legs for days. The trousers were perfectly tailored to show off her long slender legs without adding extra weight. Platform heels also added to the lengthening effect. A nude handbag served as a neutral accessory that did not distract from Kim Min Hee's refreshing style.

K-Pop Hit or Miss: Jung Hye Young's Graphic Style

On Feb. 27, Jung Hye Young made an appearance at the JILL by Jill Stuart Pop-Up Store event. The actress, most recently in 2013 MBC drama "Gu Family Book" and 2010 MBC drama "Playful Kiss", displayed a funky sense of styl e. 

Jung Hye Young wore a graphic print coat over a cropped cardigan and white skinny jeans.  The graphic print coat, while an interesting coat, swung outward and thus did nothing for her figure. The cropped black cardigan underneath was barely visible under her coat and created an odd waistcoat effect.

How Did 100% Spend ‘White Day’? Making Sweet, Sweet Desserts!

How Did 100% Spend ‘White Day’? Making Sweet, Sweet Desserts!
(Photo : OSE )

March 14th is White Day, and boy group 100% spent the day making sweet desserts. They didn't just make simple candy or cookies. With food columnist Park Joon Woo helping them out, the group made delicious, unique desserts for the sweet holiday. Park Joon Woo taught the boy group how to make champagne jelly and wine soaked pear.

Like Us on Facebook

"I was thinking about a dessert that would be fun to make and not so overdone. So I came up with these two menus. I wanted to make something that 100% members and other people of the same age can easily learn. For the Champaign you just have to dissolve the gelatin and melt it together. For the bear, you just have to cut the pear in a pretty way and boil it. Easy." (Park Joon Woo)

The members were split into two groups to make the desserts. The 3 members in the vocal group made the champagne jelly, the 2 members in the rapper group made the pear.

The very first step wasn't easy. They had to open the champagne. Park Joon Woo silently opened the champagne as the members looked on. They seemed impressed.

Next they had to pour the champagne into the pot and boil it. They used a scale to measure out 100 grams of sugar. The members marveled in awe at the 100 grams and carefully poured the sugar into the champagne and stirred the mixture with a ladle.

Then they had to cut the lemon. Park Joon Woo took the lemon in his hand and began to roll it on the cutting board. The members looked puzzled. Park Joon Woo explained, "You have to agitate it like this so you can get the most juice out of the lemon," and continued rolling the lemon for a while. They then squeezed a whole lemon into the champagne. Next was the gelatin.

"When do we put in the gelatin?" (Jonghwan)

"If you want to leave a lot of alcohol, then put it in right now. If you want to get rid of the alcohol, then you should put it in after it's boiled for a while." (Park Joon Woo)

The members inserted the gelatin right away. The gelatin needs to be dissolved in cold water. It really doesn't smell very good, but the members must have been impressed with the gelatin, because they were eager to take it back to their place. A total of 8 packets were used for this particular dessert.

"Is it all dissolved? Then just turn off the stove and let it cool. It would be pretty if you added raspberries, peach slices, or grapes. We'll be putting in raspberry and mint." (Park Joon Woo)

"It tastes like apple peel and honey!" (Hyukjin)

The members were very excited. They poured the champagne in the wine glass, made decorations, and placed them in the refrigerator. It just takes one hour to make this simple dessert.

And then it was time for the 2nd dessert. The first step here is difficult as well. The members had to cut the pear in a pretty shape. They took a potato peeler to the pear and started peeling the fruit.

"I've never peeled a pear before. It's easier than I expected." (Chanyong)

Park Joon Woo praised them for doing a good job for their first attempt. However, as the members kept handling the fruit and cutting away big chunks, the pear became noticeably smaller. They then spooned out the pear in a round shape.

"If you cut it into a pretty shape, it can be appealing in a very sexy way. You can make the shape with an ice cream scoop or knife, but it won't be pretty. Chanyong, you did it so well!" (Park Joon Woo)

Park Joon Woo then opened the wine bottle and smelled the cork. He said, "If there's a fragrant smell from the cork, it means the wine hasn't spoiled. If the smell isn't good, then the wine has spoiled." He then poured one whole bottle into a pot, and added 150 grams of sugar. The members began to stir the wine.

Park Joon Woo then took out vanilla bean. It looked like a dark stick.

"I thought it was a squid leg!" (Changbum)

They then used the knife to pick out the beans and boiled it in the wine along with the cut pear pieces. Then they reduced the wine. Lastly, they took out the pear, decorated it, and placed some ice cream next to it. The ice cream had to first be shaped with utensils before it was used for decoration. Although it wasn't nearly as pretty as the chef's creation, it was the group's efforts that created this wonderful dessert.

"It's really fun. You can taste alcohol and some sweetness. And you all look so cool when you cook, probably because you are idols." (Park Joon Woo)

The group posed with these 2 just-created fantastic desserts and their teacher after they cleaned up the studio. It was a heartwarming White Day for 100%, wouldn't you say?

Yoo Ah In Practices Role as Genius Pianist in “Secret Love Affair”

Yoo Ah In Practices Role as Genius Pianist in “Secret Love Affair”

Yoo Ah In Practices Role as Genius Pianist in “Secret Love Affair”

Ahead of the premiere of JTBC drama “Secret Love Affair” on March 17, the production has released a still cut actor Yoo Ah In playing the piano for a scene in the drama.

Yoo Ah In plays a genius pianist who becomes intensely in love with Kim Hee Ae, who is actually 19 years his senior. His character, Lee Sun Jae, has led a fairly normal life, until his hidden talents are unleashed by Oh Hye Won (Kim Hee Ae).

In the still cut, he displays Lee Sun Jae’s delicate, sensitive nature as genius pianist playing the piano, and this is sure to set female hearts aflutt­er. Lee Sun Jae sports a short sporty haircut, a reflection of his normal life till now, while the dark turtleneck lends an artistic sensibility.

Yoo Ah In has been practicing the piano whenever he has a break, so perhaps that is one reason why he looks at perfectly at ease in front of the piano. The cellphone atop the piano apparently contains instrumental music that Yoo Ah In has been listening to, as well as videos of him practicing the piano.

Pianist Kim So Hyung, who is the classical music supervisor for the drama, had nothing but praise for him. “It seems like Yoo Ah In is a real genius. He did not learn how to play the piano before, but I admire the way he is able to understand and follow along when I tell him something only once. Also, even if I give him a very difficult piece, he returns the next day having memorized it so I realized that while he’s able to immerse himself in the music and has superb concentration, he is not proud but rather, he is a really hard worker. If it wasn’t Yoo Ah in in the role of genius pianist Lee Sun Jae, I don’t think it would be possible.”

“Secret Love Affair” is a melodrama about a love story between an elegant and sophisticated career woman Oh Hye Won and genius pianist Lee Sun Jae. Hye Won falls deeply in love and experiences the thrills of romance, but this does not portend well for the future. What will happen to our two lovers?

“Secret Love Affair” airs on JTBC on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:50 PM KST beginning March 17.

Orange Caramel’s Charm - It’ll Be Hard To Escape It Once You’ve Fallen!

Orange Caramel's addictive charm is hard to escape once you've had a taste of it!

Orange Caramel has come out with another unique concept that can appeal to the public. While in the beginning their songs might be unfamiliar, the more you listen to them the more addicted you'll become.

Like Us on Facebook

Orange Caramel's color is always sure. Many girl groups appeal to the public with sexy and seductive performances, but Orange Caramel seems to be concerned with how they can stand out more. They're more likely to come out with a surprising and unusual concept.

They released their new song "Catallena" on the 12th, and as expected, the girls came out with an unconventional concept. They came out as sashimi pieces, something no other girl group had thought to do before.

Super Junior's Kim Hee Chul appeared on JTBC's "Ssulzun" and said, "I liked Orange Caramel's comeback news more than that of Girls' Generation and 2NE1." There seem to be many that agree with him -- people who are addicted to Orange Caramel's uniqueness. There were quite a number of singers that were singing Orange Caramel's new song in the waiting room of Mnet's "M Countdown", which was held at the CJ E&M Center in Seoul.

"Catallena" borrows from Pakistan's Punjab folk song "Jutti Meri", and increased its addictive and entertaining aspect. Not only that, the girls danced on top of a cutting board made to look like sushi plates. Combine that with the members' cutie pie expressions, and you have yourself an entertaining and addictive performance by the unique group Orange Caramel. Let's not forget about the interesting and fun choreography.

A rep from their agency Pledis Entertainment stated, "We increased the addictiveness of the song with an easy to follow melody. 'Catallena' includes the lyrics 'hoi hoi', which doesn't mean much, but makes the song that much more fun. It's one of the secrets to making the song much more addictive. It's also important that the facial expressions the girls make look natural and don't cause goose bumps. In Orange Caramel's case, they not only practiced their song and dance moves, but also their facial expressions. When you hear an Orange Caramel song, you won't be hit with it all at once, but it slowly starts to grow on you. It was like that before, and as they continue to appear on broadcast television, the response will grow more and more."

Yoon Han Talks About Leaving “We Got Married”

Pianist Yoon Han revealed the reason why he decided to leave MBC’s “We Go Married” is because being on the show with actress Lee So Yeon as his pretend wife has caused confusion between what is real and what is not. 

During a recent recording of MBC’s “We Got Married,” Yoon Han said, “We had a long conversation and decided to part ways. [We were both] confused between what was real and what was pretend. We decided to return to reality and take time to think seriously about how we feel about each other.”

Lee So Yeon shared her thoughts and said, “Everything is the same just like the day we met, but the emotions are the exact opposite,” as she showed tears. This made Yoon Han sad as well. He sang the second verse to “That’s How We Met” as a last gift to Lee So Yeon. Even the MCs watching from the studio were swept with emotions.

Yoon Han and Lee So Yeon asked each other whey they meant to each other. Yoon Han described Lee So Yeon as “the best wife,” and Lee So Yeon said, “the person who made me confused until the end.” Their last appearance on the show will air on March 15 at 5:10 PM KST.
