Girl’s Day released their music video for their summer single “Darling” a week ago.
The video, which has been recognized for perfectly mixing sexy and sweet, has garnered a total of 3 million views, with 800,000 views on the group’s official YouTube channel and 2,220,000 views on the LOEN channel.
"Darling," which was released on July 4, is on their new mini-album, titled "Girl’s Day Everday #4," which made its public debut at midnight KST on July 14, according to Allkpop. "Darling" has been the group’s most successful track from the album as of yet, topping eight major music charts in Korea, including Melon, Bugs, Olleh, Soribada, Genie, Naver, Daum and Monkey 3.
The track, which was produced by hit producing team Duble Sidekick, has even gained the attention of international publications, including Billboard and Popdust.
“‘Darling’ incorporates a modern, jazz-pop sound that blends peppy piano, shimmering strings and brassy horn blasts. The happy-go-lucky, doo-wup sound could easily soundtrack a sunshine-filled day at the beach or pool making the mid-summer release timing rather perfect,” wrote Billboard.
The music magazine added, “The video stays consistent with the song with the girls donning bright dresses and swimsuits in a slew of summery scenes. The GsD gals get soapy in a car wash, sip cocktails by the pool and bake rainbow-colored treats while serving countless winks, smiles and kissy faces for the cameras.”
Despite the general “cute” concept of the music video, the members of Girl’s Day didn’t stop to pepper in moments of sexiness throughout the clip. The girls are seen showing off their cleavage in their swimsuits while playful shaking their bodies during the hook of the song.
The K-pop group recently performed “Darling” on the Korean SBS music program, “Inkigayo.”
While Girl’s Day fans enjoy the ongoing success of “Darling,” they’ll be able to watch member Yura on the hit Korean variety show, “We Got Married.”
During a recent interview with Joy News 24, the idol members explained the dynamics of her onscreen relationship with her “husband” Hong Jong Kyun.
"It’s fun. When we first started, it was awkward, and we didn’t talk to each other much. But we became a lot more comfortable and closer with each other [after having fun on the lake with water sports] and couple games. Now we talk to each other a lot… Hong Jong Hyun is known as an ‘unapproachable guy’, but I never felt that way about him at all," explained Yura.
Lee Min Ho is set to begin his global tour this September.
The actor’s agency, Starhaus Entertainment, confirmed that Lee will be visiting fans this fall through his tour titled “Re: minho.”
"We decided to carry this project out because of many fans’ strong requests," explained a representative from Lee Min Ho’s management agency.
A representative of Euphoria Seoul’s management agency added, “Lee Min Ho is going to show a completely different style of performances during this year’s tour.”
"Re:minho," which reportedly means a "new start, will start in Seoul and continue on to other major cities around the world, according to Yahoo Entertainment Singapore.
Lee, who is currently filming for his new movie “Gangnam Blues,” began his annual world tour back in 2009 and has met up with about 52 thousand fans during the course of four years.
"The memories of the time I spend with my fans have always been the source of my energy," stated the actor regarding his upcoming tour, according to the publication Channel News Asia.
The expectations of fans are high for Lee’s fall 2014 tour, as he’s always been ready to surprise the audience with something new. During an interview with StarN last year, the 27-year-old had explained that he had plans to continue singing for fans, which is why he released an album before going on a tour in Asia in 2013, according to Yahoo Entertainment Malaysia.
"I released an album because I thought I should do more than singing just two, three songs during my fan meetings, and I think the preparation is going smooth for now. I want to keep developing, and make my own style," stated Lee.
Fans and movie critics will be able to experience a more rugged side to Lee Min Ho in “Gangnam Blue,” which is set for release this winter.
“‘Gangnam Blues’ was discussed before ‘The Inheritors.’ I think I am old enough to show tougher sides of me. I am doing a lot of preparations for action scenes,” stated the actor.
K-drama characters are fictional and thus no substitute for an actual boyfriend, but there’s a lot that boyfriends can learn from them.
Men, take note. If your girlfriend likes k-dramas, you may want to watch a few and pick up some pointers from the likes of Choi Jin Hyuk and Lee Min Ho. You don’t have to save your girl from a speeding truck like Kim Soo Hyun did in “You Who Came From The Stars,” wait for her for 15 years as Park Yoochun did in “Missing You,” or make her your empress as Ji Chang Wook did in “Empress Ki.”
Here are a few simple things k-drama leads do that set women’s hearts a-flutter and show you care.
SECRET posted a photo online to hint at their comeback.
On July 21, Hyosung posted a photo on instagram of all 4 members together. She wrote, “Its been awhile since we’ve been together like this. We are all very busy preparing our comeback. SECRET coming soon!”
In the photo, the members are all wearing tiaras and posing cute for the camera.
SECRET members are currently busy with individual promotions.
Actor Seo In Guk and boy group VIXX have been selected as representatives of Hallyu this year at the 2014 Korea Brand Entertainment Expo (KBEE), which was held at Seocho’s International Conference Hall on July 21.
Seo and the boys of VIXX have now officially become the new face of Korea and Brazil’s culture, economics and IT communication.
The 5th KBEE ceremony will be held in San Paulo, Brazil from August 13 to 15 at the WTC Exhibition to promote the Hallyu culture in Central and South America, according Allkpop.
Seo In Guk has been getting quite a bit of media attention as of late with his role on the drama “High School King” while VIXX has remained successful through their various singles and wins on various music programs.
"Seo In Guk is an entertainer who has been accepted in various areas such as music and acting. VIXX is a talented group that will lead the next generation of K-pop through their flashy choreography and addicting music, so we decided to choose them as ambassadors," explained KOTRA.
The organization added, “We’re looking forward to them being the bridge that increases the flow of culture between Korea and Brazil.”
Seo In Guk’s career has been skyrocketing with his role as a high school student in his new tvN drama. The actor’s contribution to the drama’s soundtrack, titled “The Way Back,” was released yesterday, according to Yahoo Entertainment Singapore.
The actor will also be appearing a music video for the song, which will reportedly show him singing in a recording booth.
Seo, who stars as high school ice hockey star Min-Seok, sat down with MSN Entertainment XIN and explained the complexity of his character, who is forced to join a circle of high-ranking executives by impersonating his brother.
"When I first read the script, I couldn’t figure out the exact intention behind the character. However, now, I think that showing viewers Min-seok’s way of handling embarrassing or uncomfortable moments at work - which is not being afraid to face problems directly without giving excuses - was his purpose," explained Seo.
Group VIXX wrapped up their first solo concert “VIXX LIVE FANTASIA ‘HEX SIGN’” in success.
VIXX held their first concert on July 18-20 at Olympic Park’s Olympic Hall and captured the hearts of 11,000 fans from Korea, Japan, China, Thailand, Monaco, and Germany.

In return, fans surprised VIXX with posters that stated “VIXX <3 STARLIGHT (name of VIXX’s fanclub), “Thank You For Being VIXX,” and “Always On VIXX’s Side.”
VIXX wrapped up their concert by thanking fans: “We’ve always dreamt of hosting a solo concert, and the dream has become reality. We want to thank our parents, agency staff, and concert staff for making all this possible. We especially are grateful to STARLIGHT, who is our greatest source of strength. We will always evolve, but not change.”
Jellyfish Entertainment stated: “The members of VIXX were always happy during concert preparations. They tried hard to showcase their best during their first performance. We thank fans for enjoying the concerts.”
