Idol group Infinite‘s quite surprising living habits were recently revealed by members Hoya and Dongwoo.
On the March 2 episode of SBS’ “1000 Song Challenge,” music industry seniors and juniors gathered together for a fun competition, as they showed off their talent by singing popular songs.
Representing Infinite were Hoya and Dongwoo, who the MCs asked to confirm a rumor. The MCs asked, “People say that you tend to walk around the dorm with almost no clothes on, so you surprise the housekeeper?”
Making this even more shocking, Dongwoo added, “We take off even our underwear.” However, confused over his group mate’s response, Hoya said, “Only Dongwoo walks around with nothing on. I wear my underwear,” and evoked laughter with his correction.
Other idol groups featured on this episode were A Pink and Tiny-G.
“Emergency Couple” has broken its previous ratings with a great margin!
According to ratings agency Nielsen Korea, episode 11 that aired on March 1 recorded average ratings of 4.1%, with peaks as high as 4.8%. As episode 10 attracted merely 3.4% of viewers on average, this is a significant rise. The drama also took the first place among other shows airing at the same time.
On this episode, Oh Jin Hee (Song Ji Hyo) and Oh Chang Min (Choi Jin Hyuk) took small but steady steps towards getting closer again, as they reminisced their life before the divorce. Due to a collarbone fracture, Jin Hee was unable to move her arms freely, thus struggling to eat her meal. To help her out, Chang Min could be seen feeding her in an adorable manner.
The memories they wanted to forget and destroy after getting divorced slowly begun to change into moments that both of them wanted to restore.
Chang Min said as Jin Hee was leaving the house, “You said that it is better to have someone important next to you when you are sick, not a doctor.” She replied, “I am not hurt. Don’t care about me,” but Chang Min hugged her from behind and held her tightly, and said, “I am hurt. So please stay next to me. This is a request.”

No Hong Chul at a nude beach! Imagine that.
On the March 1 episode of MBC’s “Infinity Challenge,” No Hong Chul, Haha, Jung Hyung Dong, and Skull were in Jamaica. They had originally gone for a reggae festival, and on March 1 the team embarked on an adventure to see if they could meet the famous Usain Bolt.
One of the team’s destinations was a cliff that Usain Bolt supposedly often visits, where, after a game of rock, paper, scissors, No Hong Chul was chosen to dive off the 12 meter cliff. The next day, however, there was no need for rock, paper, scissors at the nude beach; No Hong Chul could not hide his excitement, throwing his clothes off and saying that the nude beach is a new experience. Skull, seeing No Hong Chul’s carefree attitude, also joined in.
The married fellows on the team, Jung Hyung Don and Haha, who did not participate in the nude festivities, just looked on from afar, enjoying the nude beach through their team members’ experiences.

Super Junior’s Donghae and Eunhyuk had the ability to soak in their popularity in Japan. On March 1, Eunhyuk posted on his Twitter, “It has come up in Shibuya, oppa.” Along with the message, a subtle reference to the song “Oppa, Oppa” that was released by the Super Junior sub-unit Donghae & Eunhyuk, the singer posted three photos of Donghae and himself looking at a building.
No, these two were not shopping for land or property, but rather the pair was mesmerized by none other than the large posters of the duo that were posted on the side of the building. Wearing baggy jackets and sweatpants, the two Super Junior members posed with double peace signs, showing their excitement for their Japanese activities. The posters that covered the side of the building promoted the duo’s new Japanese album.
On February 28, Donghae & Eunhyuk released their first Japanese full album, “Ride Me,” which topped the Oricon Charts. The number one ranking album once again validated Super Junior’s popularity beyond the borders of Korea.
Spica’s Bohyung recently revealed her current and past weight with zero qualms whatsoever, at the delightful alarm of her fellow members.
Spica members Joo Hyun, Narae, and Bohyung appeared on the March 1 episode of Y-Star’s “Gourmet Road.”
On the episode, when Kim Shin Young commented that Bohyung looks like she’s gotten much slimmer since her debut, Bohyung said, “Right now I’m 51 kg (approx. 112 lbs),” at which her fellow members Joo Hyun and Narae, nervous, explained that Bohyung was wearing heavy shoes and performance clothes at the time. But whether or not Bohyung knew how her members were feeling, she went on to reveal her weight at the time of her debut, as well. Cue members! Joo Hyun quickly explained again, “Bohyung has a lot of muscle,” making the set laugh for her nervous efforts.
On the March 1 broadcast of SBS Power FM’s “Escape at 2PM Cultwo Show,” Shinhwa’s Lee Minwoo, who recently made a comeback with “Taxi,” appeared as a guest. On the show, host Jung Chan Woo asked Minwoo why he had wanted to do the variety show “Daddy Where Are We Going?” after getting married, at which he said, “Shinhwa hasn’t gotten married yet. We thought it would be fun to have a joint wedding, then have all of our kids on stage with us. Even the thought of it is fun.”
Kim Tae Kyoon then asked Minwoo which member he thinks is going to get married first. Minwoo replied, “It’ll be Dongwan or Eric. Because they’re starting to get wrinkles.” Minwoo and his infallible logic.
Recently, reports surfaced that the variety show “Happy Together Season 3” was planning to go through a major change.
According to a broadcast insider, a staff of the KBS variety show had carefully said that all the MCs, except for Yoo Jae Suk, were leaving the show as part of efforts to revamp the program. The reports described how the changes in MCs had been announced to the current hosts, Yoo Jae Suk, Park Myung Soo, Park Mi Sun, and Shin Bong Sun, in order to prepare them for their departure. A representative commented, “I know that the departing hosts will be recording their last episode soon.” Moreover, another representative said, “Park Myung Soo and Shin Bong Sun have been on ‘Happy Together‘ for seven years, while Park Mi Sun for six years. The staff and MCs all felt that there needed to be a change in the ‘Sauna Talk’ corner.”
However, “Happy Together Season 3’s” camera producer, Jung Hee Sub, denied the news of the MCs’ departure. On March 1, the producer expressed to Sports Seoul, “It is true that we are deliberating on changing the format of the show. However, since we do not have an official decision, we will continue to go with the old format. Furthermore, the news about all the departure of all the MCs, expect for Yoo Jaesuk, is false.” With the clarification by the camera producer, it can be deduced that the MCs will not be leaving in the future.
The KBS variety show first started back in 2001 with the MCs Shin Dong Yup and Lee Hyori. The show garnered much popularity, averaging weekly ratings of 20%. Yet currently, the third season of “Happy Together” is struggling with its ratings, recording an average weekly viewership of less than 10%.
