Minzy goes against YG Entertainment’s statement of denial, “I did my nose job during my break time!”
Minzy, what is your secret to getting so prettier? Minzy answered with her always so puppy eyes and clear tone. Her pure honest personality was also the same as her old days. She straightforwardly answered to somewhat difficult question for a girl group member. “I did my nose job during my break time.”
YG’s Yang Hyun-suk CEO is famous for unwilling to reveal his agency singers’ plastic surgery. How did the member 2NE1 who he adores, especially the youngest member Minzy reveal her nose job? How was this possible? Minzy explained without hesitance.
“Many are talking about my changed looks. It is not my style hiding. I wanted to tell the truth. Since I was young, it was so hard for me to sing and dance due to my rhinitis. When I went to the hospital, they said my nose was slightly twisted. To perfectly fix it I had no choice but surgery.”
Minzy who was busy promoting as 2NE1 had no time to treat her rhinitis. But it was so painful for her to withstand. So she decided to do nose job right after she becomes an adult. “I have never done a surgery before so I was worried at first. But my mom advised me to do plastic surgery if I am going to correct my nose anyways. So I thought about it for a long time.”
Minzy was concerned about this issue for a long time. This was partly because she had prejudice that CEO Yang will disapprove of her surgery. But he actually beamed a smile and said “You girl are now a lady” She said “When I discussed about this issue (nose job), he responded so differently from what I imagined.”
“He had hostility towards plastic surgery so I was afraid the mention about it first. But I collected my courage and asked him. He (YG) said ‘Gummy and Wheesung also suffered from rhinitis. If you have to do the operation do as your mother says.‘ I confessed that I am going to do my nose job as I treat my rhinitis.”
Minzy and her mom have a special relationship. “My mom is my teacher, friend and my partner.” She suggested an example with a heartwarming smile, “My mom has special affection towards me. When I exercised everyday in YG’s gym but still looked fatter than the other members she was a little worried. So she lost 10kg herself just to motivate me. Thanks to her, our family had a diet boom. Naturally I slimmed down.”
She also commented, ”My mom suggested that while I was getting Rhinitis correction, I should also get plastic surgery to make my nose prettier.” ”People around me have been asking me about my different appearance. I can’t hide things so I really wanted to announce it.”

오랜 시간이 지나가도 우리 서로 기억해요.
American agencies calling Taeyang for a solo US debut?
BIGBANG’s TAEYANG has been receiving calls from entertainment agencies in the United States for his solo musical career, and many eyes are on the artist to see if he will be branching out to the U.S.
It was confirmed on Nov 21 that TAEYANG has been giving much thought on reaching out to the U.S., since he received many offers from major entertainment agencies in the country. Nothing has been made concrete at this point, but it has been revealed that amongst the many agencies is the one giant agency of U.S. as well.
The offers from this side of the world is reaching TAEYANG since the release of his new song ‘Ringa Linga.’ The song is of a strong hip-hop with melodies here and there.
‘Ringa Linga’ may seem a little new to the South Korean public, but in America where hip-hop is already mainstream, the song is arousing much attention.
But the most important aspect to consider is BIGBANG’s schedule. TAEYANG is part of BIGBANAG, a group that boasts the busiest schedule in Asia, so the tight-schedule makes it that much harder to get the timing right for TAEYANG to be in the U.S.
TAEYANG joined the rest of BIGBANG members last week for Japan’s largest Dome Tour, where 770,000 Japanese fans will join them until next January. TAEYANG has his solo album prepared to reveal next March, and then will have to move on quickly to the release of BIGBANG’s new album. It is clear that his tight schedule is already full enough.
In an interview recently, TAEYANG commented, “If BIGBANG were a big tree, then I would be a branch.” This shows that he has much affection for group activities, so the public will have to wait and see how he will be able to plan his schedule so that American market penetration can take place.
TAEYANG, immediately after participating in the 2013 Mnet Asia Music Awards in Hong Kong on Nov 22, will fly to the United States to have his very first solo performance in San Francisco on Nov 26. He is expected to have meetings with a few music industry related personnel to further discuss the matter.
The performance in San Francisco is TAEYANG’s first one in the States as a solo artist, which will be part of Music Experience 2.0., an event co-hosted by MTV IGGY and Intel.

T.O.P’s ‘Commitment’ promotions in Japan attracts 100,000 fans!
BIGBANG’s T.O.P successfully wrapped up the Premium Event held in Japan in celebration of the film ‘Commitment’ being released in the country.
At the Premium Event of ‘Commitment release’ held in Japan’s Pacific Yokohama on Nov 20, T.O.P took part in a solo event in Japan, joined by 100,000 local participants.
On the day, T.O.P participated in many events like reading out his hand-written letter to the fans, and a special talk session where he told the fans the details of behind-the-scenes of the film that had many action scenes. This was the first event to be held since the release of ‘Commitment’.
In his letter that he read out, he wrote, “The film ‘Commitment’ is where I appear before you as an actor, not a musician, for the first time in 3 years,” and added, “I hope the character Lee Myung Hoon can be conveyed to you all. Your cheering is a big source of power for me. I appreciate your continuous support.”
‘Commitment’ starring T.O.P draws on a story of the 19-year-old main character Lee Myung Hoon who accepts an offer to become a killer in South Korea to save his only family, his sister. This is his first movie in 3 years.
Choi Seung Hyun showed his deep enthusiasm for the event by suggesting the dress code of the event should be ‘black’. He told the fans, “I missed you” in Japanese, making them hyper excited. He also showed some photographs of his house to the fans.
On Dec 6 the film will be unveiled in the United States, and it will be released in Japan on January 25 next year. He told the fans, “It is really fulfilling that the film is being released in many different countries.”
T.O.P is praised for his expression of powerful emotions of a 19-year-old boy whose fate does not unravel the way he imagined it would.
‘Commitment’ has already proven its immense popularity by attracting a sensational 1 million moviegoers in just 15 days after its release, and the number is continuously increasing while competing with other huge Hollywood films.

G-Dragon wins ‘Best Foreign Artist’ at Young Choice Awards 2013!
It was a day for BIGBANG’s G-DRAGON to witness firsthand his immense popularity in China – at the award ceremony.
At the Young Choice Awards 2013 held in Beijing Olympic Center in the evening of Nov 20, G-DRAGON made an appearance because he was selected as the awardee for the ‘Best Foreign Artist’.
At the awards, G-DRAGON received a trophy and said, “I thank Youku Tudou and Shenzhen TV who give me this precious award and I’m honored. I thank and love all Chinese fans who give me such a big support.”
An insider of the awards said, “About 10,000 spectators and officers of China’s leading entertainment agencies attended the awards. Plus, more than 500 fans gathered at the airport to see G-DRAGON coming to China, which proved his high popularity in China.”
The person captured handing G-RAGON the trophy was China’s popular MC Du Hai Tao, and he has been publicly saying that he is a fan of G-DRAGON. His encounter with G-DRAGON was indeed a long awaited one, and his ‘acting’ when handing the artist the trophy made everyone burst out in laughter.
With the calling on G-DRAGON’s name, Du went up the stage with the cruiser-board-shaped trophy and went down on one knee before the artist. When Du was on one knee and stretching his trophy-holding hands toward G-DRAGON, the awardee put a smile on his face and received the trophy.
That was not the end of it. Du, unable to hide his joy and exhilaration for meeting G-DRAGON, took a photograph of himself and G-DRAGON on stage, while dancing along ‘Crayon Pop.’ A true fan.
The award ceremony was fired up with G-DRAGON’s performances. He excited the audience with ‘Niliria,’ and ‘Crooked’, and the local fans responded enthusiastically by singing along the Korean lyrics of the songs.
G-DRGAON is also scheduled to appear on the 2013 Mnet Asian Music Award in Hong Kong’s Asia World Expo Arena on Nov 22.
