PSY AND THE WANTED PERFORM TOGETHER
We’d never thought to put these two in the same category, but the Gangnam Style rapper and the Brit boyband did the infamous song at the MTV VMAs pre-party, complete with horse riding dance. In case you haven’t heard, PSY will be at the VMA itself on Sept 6 as a presenter, after having signed with Island Records, the same label home to Justin Bieber. The man is going places.

 

G-DRAGON’S NEW MINI-ALBUM AVAILABLE SEPTEMBER 15
After the release of the video for That XX, GD’s second solo album will be available online on September 15 and physical sales start September 18. The tracklist has been revealed and mark this as the collab we’re most excited about this year – Mina Kwon (artist/designer and friend of GD and Taeyang) tweeted a photo of him with underground rapper Dok2 (he’s worked with Jay Park) and fellow YG labelmate Tablo, both of whom he’s worked with on “Catch Me On Fire”. We want to hear that song now.

GD’s also slated to appear on Infinity Challenge, a treat for fans who don’t get to see the BIGBANG members (other than Seungri, of course) on variety shows that often.

FILMING HALTED ON ALUMNI

We look as sad as T.O.P. in this picture – we wanted to see him as a spy in the movie. The director Park Shin Woo left the production last month and no one has been found to replace him.

MAN CANDY OF THE WEEK

Taecyeon’s buff and hairy legs for Reebok, plus training like a beast in the commercial. And we love a man in a suit, as ZE:A’s Siwan demonstrates why in Geek magazine. And saving the best for last, Kim Hyun Joong looks like a sexy cowboy wearing a denim shirt, in a Hang Ten ad.

 

GIRL CANDY OF THE WEEK

Both After School’s Uee and SISTAR’s Hyorin shed their usual sexy image in the photo spreads for Campus 10 and SURE magazines. Uee looks goddess-like surrounded by butterflies, while the tanned beauty is fashionable in 60s-inspired outfits.

Oh, this isn’t an editorial but we loved the explosion of pastel in Girls Generation’s new video for their Japanese single “All My Love Is For You”. The girls look positively dreamy.

 

T-ARA’S SEXY LOVE, LEXY’S NOLZA
The scandal-ridden group T-area released “Sexy Love”, a very catchy dance song which has been on constant replay on our laptops. There are two versions – the dance version, which features a cute robot dance and the drama version, which is a continuation of the epic post-apocalyptic “Day By Day” video. And as we reported earlier, rap queen Lexy (she trained CL to rap back when she was in YG) is back after more than four years with “Nolza”.

 

SIWON IS APPARENTLY VERY, VERY RICH
Add this to the list of reasons why Siwon is hot. While on variety show Radio Star, fellow Super Junior members Leetuek, Eunhyuk and Shindong outed Siwon’s level of wealth. It apparently rivals that of ZE:A’s Hyungsik, whose father is the managing director of a foreign car company, and he owns several huge homes.

LEE JOON AND OH YEON SEO ARE NEW WE GOT MARRIED COUPLE
The new pairing will debut on the September 15 episode and fans are excited to see what sparks will fly between the oft-comedic MBLAQ singer and the “My Husband Got A Family” actress.

HARA AND JUNHYUNG HAVE NO TIME TO DATE
Ah, the life of an idol. Despite being one of the only pair of idol singers who haven’t hidden their relationship, the KARA cutie said on variety show Strong Heart that he doesn’t plan any surprises for her (hint hint, Junhyung) and they’re so busy that they don’t have much time to date.

With KARA’s current promotions for their new single Pandora and B2ST’s Midnight Sun activities just ending, we’d chalk it up to bad timing too. Also, with their immense success in Japan, the girls have just released an album of their solo songs called KARA Collection. Here is Hara’s music video for “Secret Love”.
