Plastic lover, Park Shi Yeon’s 2000 Miss Korea pictures are resurfacing and what a transformation from 2000! Then again, she looks different every other month because her nose has a life of its own, just like our Neverland friend MJ.
The one thing that is great about launching parties is seeing which stars turn out. The bigger the brand, the bigger the stars, and the bigger the goodie bags – in LV’s case- most likely bags! For the launch of the LV store at Hyundai Department Store in the prestigious neighborhood, Apku-jong, the high rollers were in full force – Check it out
Korea’s hottest celebs including Jang Hyuk, Gong You, Yoon Kae Sang, Zo In Sung, Ji Jin Hee and Cha Tae Hyun all gathered together for the Hallyu Romantic Festival held in Japan over the weekend.

Koreans, especially young netizens love to create new words to describe the latest trend. There are new word or catch phrase created every other week that I don’t even try to keep up, but observing the creation of new words used to describe beautiful bodies over couple of months has been somewhat entertaining, hence this post.
It started out with Korea’s obsession of S-Line or women’s curvy figure. Chopstick figured body was out and glamour was in. Every female celeb on TV tried to show off their S-Line and if they didn’t have it, they would even pose a certain way to look like they had it. Then, male celebs got on the “let’s show off our beautiful bodies” bandwagon and started to flash us with their perfect abs and the word M-Line was formed to describe their fine abs.
One line word per gender, not bad. But it started to get out of hand when BoA‘s face was referred as the V-Line and singer Byul’s lower back as the U-Line.
What’s next? The I-line for your legs and E-line for your fingers? Seriously, somebody needs to put a break into this silly word formations. It’s not creative nor catchy. What’s worse is that nobody’s going to understand what the heck you are talking about when you say, “I love your V-line, can I have your number?” outside Korea.
Actually, the question we should be asking is why are directors tempting Eru to act? We understand that he has a solid fan base, thanks to his successful albums, but that’s certainty not enough to succeed in the acting business. Last time I checked, musical talent does not magically transform into acting skills overnight and we’ve seen too many singers such as Se7en, Lee Hyori, Yoon Gae Sang (ex. g.o.d member), Kim Dong Wan (Shinhwa), etc fail at it. If Eru enters the acting sphere, he might just be another addition to the “singers not actors” club, but read more
