Earlier today, Popular girl group 2NE1 appeared on the Variety show Strong Heart. During a talking segment of the show, the subject of the founder of YG Entertainment, Yang Hyun Suk (YG) came up.

During this segment, leader CL declared that the “YG is too strict,” that they aren’t allowed to have a boyfriend for 5 years because it’s stated in their contract. MC Kang Do Hong replied with, “Then that means Sandara Park can’t have a boyfriend until she’s 31?” CL responded with, “Well, there might be a way around it. If the guy goes through YG’s physical & health examination test.”

Epik High front man Tablo responded jokingly to all this saying, “My fiancéis a YG Entertainment artist so does that mean I have need to pass this health examination too?” The other girls of 2NE1 said they bickered with YG over this and eventually got the years reduced from 5 to 3. CL responded with, “it’ll give the unni’s some hope.”

Sandara Park said she found host MC Lee Seung Gi attractive, while Park Bom said her ideal type is Brian from Fly 2 The Sky. Minji & Brian does an erotic dance, CL sings with Insooni, 2NE1 performs with Boom, Minji dances with Seung Gi, and more, check out the 2NE1 cuts below, also check out the YGLadies forum.

Inappropriate Photo of Wonder Girls in an African Magazine?

WOAH!

In the past, K-pop sensation Wonder Girls have been featured in various international magazines–including that of U.S., Philippines, and Thailand – demonstrating their rising popularity in, not just Korea, but overseas as well.

However, with a lack of research and false correlation, mistakes can easily be made when obtaining a photo of an international artist or group. Need I remind you of the Swiss Tabloid Magazine that used a picture of Super Junior’s Yesung as Kim Jong Il’s son?

It seems a similar misfortune has fallen upon a newspaper company in Swaziland, southeast Africa.

The problem lied not only in using an inappropriate photo of Wonder Girls with ex-member Hyuna, but in the content of the article itself. The accompanying story reported on the reason why younger girls date older men – a matter completely irrelevant and unrelated to the Korean girl group.

The caption under the picture reads “YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL…… Young girls prefer dating older men for a number of reasons.”

A representative of JYP Entertainment stated, “We are currently resolving this ordeal with the newspaper company in Africa. We will take actions accordingly.”

Let this be a lesson to all journalists and writers: although Google is often referred to as a reliable primary source, extra caution must be taken where content is concerned.
