Hyorin complains her admittance of getting double-eyelid surgery always got edited out from broadcast
Hyorin complained that every time she admitted to getting plastic surgery, the admitted remarks would be edited out from broadcast.
On the December 4 episode of 'Radio Star', she was one of the guests. She said, "Last time when I talked about plastic surgery, the thing that got broadcasted was when I said, 'I went to the plastic surgeon, and they told me that if I wanted to fix one spot, I had to fix 10 places'. I said this in other places before Radio Star, but I got double-eyelid surgery."
She continued, "I only got the double-eyelid surgery done, but every time I said it, it ended up getting edited out. But 'Radio Star' aired the part about me talking about meeting the plastic surgeon. After that, people would say, 'Hyorin used to say she didn't get plastic surgery on 'Radio Star', but now she's admitting it because of past photos. I got so frustrated I thought my heart would burst. I always said it on the shows, but this was the first program that aired it out."
Psy's 'Gentleman' named the #1 Viral Video of 2013 by TIME Magazine
As if getting #2 for the song of the year in 2012 with "Gangnam Style" wasn't enough, Psy snagged the #1 spot for 'Viral Video of 2013' on the list by TIME Magazine!
Psy tops even Ylvis' "What Does the Fox Say" on the list, and is the sole Korean on the list. Together with Girls' Generation, they're the only two Koreans who rank anywhere on the set of the 'Top 10 Everything of 2013' list that TIME revealed earlier today.
Think lightning can't strike twice? South Korean pop star Psy proved he was a rainmaker when he debuted "Gentleman" in April, his much-awaited follow-up to 2012's most-viral video, "Gangnam Style." While nowhere close to his original hit in terms of catchiness and choreography– the signature hip-swinging move was no invisible horse dance –- Psy proved he wasn't a one-trick pony when "Gentleman" broke all kinds of records right out of the gate, becoming the most viewed video online in a single day.
Girls' Generation's 'I Got a Boy' ranks at #5 on TIME Magazine's 'Top 10 Songs of 2013'!
Girls' Generation's "I Got a Boy" has been chosen as the 5th best song of 2013 by TIME Magazine!
TIME revealed their top 10 songs of the year and the song ranks among big songs of the 2013 such as "Cups", "Royals", "We Can't Stop", and "Get Lucky". Girls' Generation is the only Korean artist on the list.
On selecting the song, TIME Magazine wrote,
The nine-woman South Korean group Girls' Generation is a ridiculously effective hook machine, and a major phenomenon in Asia, whose biggest pop acts make One Direction and Katy Perry sound like audience-alienating avant-gardists. If you like songs that do everything at once, go straight to YouTube and call up the over-the-top video for this monomaniacally charming hybrid of bubblegum, dubstep and hard rock, whose Korean lyrics are sprinkled with incongruous English phrases ("Ayo, stop, let me put it down another way").
After announcing her pregnancy on Monday, 37-year-old Barbie Hsu verified that she is currently 18-weeks pregnant and expecting a girl.
As her husband Wang Xiaofei is the only son in the family, earlier reports claimed that Barbie has been under pressure to give birth to a boy. “What era are we in! My mother-in-law is very open-minded,” she retorted.
However, Xiaofei’s mother, Zhang Lan, has reportedly declined to look after the baby in future, citing her “getting on age” as reason.
Meanwhile, Xiaofei reiterated that the baby’s gender does not matter as long as the child is healthy. “We let nature take its course. I feel a greater sense of responsibility after becoming a dad,” he added.
While speaking to the media, Barbie described how her husband has been talking to the unborn baby in her tummy these days. “He often tells her to be obedient and that daddy loves her.”
The mum-to-be has also been taking light meals as she is prone to gastric problems if she eats too much in one sitting, due to the heavy amniotic fluid in her body. In addition, the couple, who has been going for regular prenatal check-ups, was said to be moved to tears when they first heard the baby’s heartbeat. Barbie’s expected delivery date is in May next year.
Barbie Hsu shares photo of herself with baby bump
Three years after tying the knot with her husband Wang Xiaofei, Taiwanese artiste Barbie Hsu has successfully conceived and is currently three months pregnant. Yesterday, the 37-year-old, who previously announced her pregnancy before visiting the doctor, confirmed the good news via a microblog entry.
She wrote: “Thanks everyone for the blessings! We are now a family of three!”
In the post, the mum-to-be also attached a photo of herself with a visible baby bump. Shortly after her announcement, Barbie’s celebrity friends re-posted her entry with their well wishes while Xiaofei openly expressed his love for his wife: “You’ve had a hard time, dear. Our child will get to breathe the air of Beijing and drink the water of Taiwan,” he said.
Sources revealed that Barbie, who has stopped all work activities, is preparing for childbirth in Taipei. The actress also mentioned that the gender of the baby does not matter. “The most important thing is for the child to grow up healthily,” she emphasised.
Lee Hom threatens legal action against defamatory rumours
Mandopop singer songwriter Wang Lee Hom’s new wife has sparked off much public and media interest after he announced his marriage last Wednesday.
His announcement, a day after he went public about his relationship with 27-year-old Columbia graduate student Lee Jinglei, came as a double shock to many. Jinglei, who is 10 years Lee Hom’s junior, suddenly found herself in the public spotlight. Netizens, in a curious and excited bid to find out more about her, have also stirred up much online discussion about her.
Word spread that Jinglei is a mixed Taiwanese-Japanese, who studied in Taipei’s Dominican International School; some netizens even dug up her elementary school photo. When comparing her single eye-lidded, thick-lipped younger self to her current doe-eyed, sweet-looking image, some even said that she might have gone under the knife for her looks. There were also rumours that her Columbia graduate status was only in name.
During Thanksgiving, when Lee Hom posted up his family photo, there were speculations that the photo was digitally edited to include Jinglei, and that she was actually not present. Some ‘sharp-eyed’ netizens also claimed that the dog she was hugging in the photo belonged to her ex-boyfriend and rumours of her prior engagement to an ex-boyfriend in February this year started to spread.
Lee Hom, who is currently in the midst of filming for a micro movie in the US, first spoke up about his marriage yesterday. He thanked friends and fans for their blessings, and said that he is very happy in his blissful marriage.
In response to the multitude of rumours that have been spread about his wife, he said: “As they are all untrue, I don’t pay any attention to them.” But he added that if there are future slanderous remarks, he would not hesitate to seek advice from his management company to take legal action.
Lee Hom’s family photo suspected of being digitally edited
Mandopop singer songwriter Wang Lee Hom, who has recently been in the media spotlight after declaring his marriage with Lee Jinglei, a 27-year-old graduate student from Colombia University, is back into the limelight again after he released a family photo on Thanksgiving, which was suspected by netizens of being photo-edited to add in his bride.
A total of 16 members of the Lee family and two dogs made up the joyous-looking family photo. Lee Hom and his wife Lee Jinglei sat in the middle of the front row, with Jinglei hooking an arm around her husband’s, while holding their grandmother’s hand with another. Lee Hom also placed his right hand on his wife’s. This heartwarming image, however, was criticised by netizens of having five major loopholes, and was suspected to have been digitally edited.
Netizens pointed out that a relative’s shadow appeared to be in an illogical direction, the hair contour of another appeared unnatural, and their standing positions seemed illogical. It was also mentioned that the colour of the wall seemed uneven, and that the dogs appeared to have an incorrect head-to-body proportion.
Another netizen even boldly speculated that Lee Jinglei may not even be present, and that the photo was edited to create a picture of happiness and harmony.
And that’s not all – a photo of Lee Hom sitting only with his parents was even discovered, but a netizen admitted that the photo was a personal creation and not the original.
Responding to the major loopholes in the picture, Lee Hom’s manager said that only an ugly painting on the wall was digitally removed, and the photo was otherwise untouched. She said that these netizens have “overly active imaginations”, and added that as Lee Hom is on vacation in the US, he is unable to retrieve the original file to show everyone.
But Lee Hom himself is unaffected by these speculations, and even posted up on Weibo a photo of himself skiing. Fans have called for more pretty photos of his wife, and showed unanimous support for the couple.
