'Taereung Zombie Village' is a national-level zombie blockbuster of youth who fight against the greatest disasters of all time.

"Hi, I’m doing this live bc today is the 5000th day since 2PM’s debut, congratulations on 5000 days, 5000 days~~I’m greeting you after so long bc it’s the 5000th day,we tried to greet as 6 but it’s difficult to match the time, so we said let’s greet separately and that’s why I’m greeting you all like this.”

What a guy.  He just opened a Twitter "space" to celebrate Japan's Hottests 11th anniversary.  That was a first for me (for him too,  I think).  It was kinda neat and he invited a fan to speak.  He is 2PMs biggest fan.

Audio only (of course)

7 Mysterious Dating Scandals That Left Fans Suspicious Something Was Happening

Fans are still scratching their heads at these scandals.


It takes only one photograph to involve idols in dating rumors, a phenomenon that seemingly appears left and right nowadays. The story behind these so-called dating scandals was cleared up by the artists and their agencies, but some fans continued to wonder if it could be a cover up.



4. 2PM’s Taecyeon & Jessica Jung

Rumors about Taecyeon and Jessica started surfacing in 2010, but they were never seen as a couple. Jessica admitted that their shared American upbringing, along with other traits, were cause for a friendly relationship, but the fact they kept meeting alone made fans think it was awfully convenient. Rumors resurfaced in 2011 when they met in Japan, but both Jessica and Taecyeon later explained on separate TV shows that they were just friends. Even so, fans remain unconvinced that something didn’t go on back then.

Taec mini interview for the drama "Secret Royal Inspector & Joy for Hanryu Pia Magazine



@TheaN  thanks for sharing this video. I'm done re-watching this drama since I wasn't able to watch it continuously while airing then because of lack of time.  I remember seeing the poster of this drama before I told myself that this drama will be a comedic one. And it turned out to be exactly like that and personally, it never disappointed me. Although there was certain amount of seriousness, which is indeed there, but even they carry the comic elements to some extent. This drama has lot of funny moments that nowadays we really need something like this. On the day the release date of this drama was announced, I marked it in my calendar and remained giddy until the first episode aired. Taecyeon was in it so, I had to watch this. This is a drama that you must binge to fully enjoy. I was looking forward to this because of Taecyeon who always delights. This is the first time I’ve seen him in a Hanbok. I found myself waiting for every next episode.  :loveu:

Hairstyle has a great influence on one’s appearance. In particular, Korean men often complain about having to cut their hair short when enlisting in the army. However, there are stars who still shine even with the military haircut. Here are 6 celebrities who look extraordinary great in short hair.




2. Singer-actor Ok Taec-yeon

Photos taken when Ok Taec-yeon was serving in the military once made headlines. Ok Taec-yeon earned the nickname “Captain Korea” thanks to his overwhelming physique, handsome look in short haircut, and unique facial features. He gave up his American permanent residence visa to be able to join the army in 2017 and serve as an active-duty soldier for 20 months.

Community, Friendship, And Love: What To Watch If You Loved “Our Blues”





“Our Blues” was the new tvN summer feels K-drama that brought viewers so much joy, tears, and healing. It was the perfect series that touched on every topic imaginable. From mental health to teenage pregnancies and death, the series showed us the value of family, friendship, and love while tackling some serious issues. If you’re going through some withdrawal now that the series is over, here are some other similar K-dramas or shows that are worth checking out.



6. “Three Meals a Day”


“Three Meals a Day” is a series produced by Na Young Suk. There have been several seasons already, but the slow pace and simplicity of the show is perfect to relax to. The core cast has the responsibility of making three meals a day using the ingredients that they have. If they want to buy more groceries or meat, they have to work to make the money. The show also has various star-studded guest appearances.


The show is very plain and simple in concept, but it is perfectly delightful. Watching various celebs get shipped to a countryside and have to fend for themselves while they struggle to make meals all day may not seem addictive, but it is!


Their endearing sentiments, sense of humor, and interactions with the guests all provide a sense of solace and friendliness that you may not have expected. There is a reason why there have been nine seasons of the series!


Hopefully they will return with a new season soon.
