Elementary school complains to Cube about causing a ruckus with Hara-Junhyung dating report

After news broke out about the relationship between B2ST’s Junhyung and KARA’s Hara, Cube Entertainment received an unusual call from a disgruntled elementary school.

Reportedly, the label picked up a call from an elementary school’s representatives, who complained that the dating news wrecked their students’ ability to concentrate in class.

Representatives revealed, “We did not intend for news to get out like this, but news of their relationship had already been reported. We were quite surprised to receive a complaint from an elementary school. According to them, there were many students crying after hearing about the news. They asked us why we had to report the news and disturb the children from studying for their tests.”

They continued, “We know that there were a lot of shocked fans after reports were made and we believe we’re receiving such calls because both Junhyung and Hara have many young fans. The fans must have been very surprised over the emergence of a new idol couple.”

Girl’s Day releases MV Teaser for “Hug me once”!

KARA’s Hara & B2ST’s Junhyung confirmed to be in a relationship!

KARA’s Hara and B2ST’s Junhyung have been revealed to be dating!

On June 28th, Cube Entertainment announced, “They had a senior/ junior relationship until they began dating. They’ve been dating for about a month now. When Hara was going through some difficult times, Junhyung consoled her. Because of their busy schedules, they’ve only been able to go out to eat and other dating activities three times so far.”

DSP Media also announced, “They do have good feelings towards one another, but they’re still getting to know each other. It’s only been a month so far. Please watch over them for a bit more.”

An associate of the two revealed, “The KARA and B2ST members are all close to one another because they’ve been promoting around the same time. They depend on and look to each other for consolation. Ahead of their Japanese comeback, their relationship has gotten a lot deeper through support meetings.”

The two were caught confidently dating on the early morning of June 9th, the day Junhyung returned from B2ST’s Japanese concert. After drinking coffee at a take out cafe in Kangnam, the two drove around the area before parking near Junhyung’s home. For an hour, the two walked around the neighborhood and around the park before settling at the ‘Sky Park’ in Sangam-dong.

Seeing the two hold hands side by side was definitely a heartwarming sight for reporters on the scene. The two apparently used every spare moment in their schedules, as they met up again on the early morning of June 13th to walk around the back alleys of Hongdae.

What’s amazing is that they didn’t hide who they were at all. In the car, Hara would roll down the windows and stick her head out to observe the night view.

An associate of Hara’s explained, “Innocence is Hara’s charm. She may have begun promoting early, but she’s not affected by that at all and still manages to preserve her innocence. Yong Junhyung probably fell in love with her pure charm.”

[Update] Korean media claims motorcyclist may have been alive before Daesung’s collision

On June 19th, MBC’s “News Desk” reported that motorcyclist Hyun could have been alive at the time of Daesung’s accident.

According to the report, autopsy results revealed that Hyun fell while driving his motorcycle under the influence of alcohol. There were no signs of being hit prior to Daesung’s accident.

This new piece of information is bringing up speculation that Hyun was alive prior to the collision with Daesung’s car. However, there is still a possibility that Hyun died from losing blood for a long period of time after falling from his motorcyle. Therefore, there is no clear evidence at the moment that would determine whether or not Hyun died due to Daesung’s accident at this time.

Stay tuned to allkpop as we continue to report on this matter.

The National Forensic Service is reporting that they had neither contacted nor spoke with MBC regarding the Daesung incident, and that whatever news that had come out of MBC’s “News Desk” is likely to be pure speculation.

We have not released any statements regarding Daesung’s accident,” said a spokesman for the NFS. “The investigation is still proceeding, so there is nothing we can say right now.

The NFS also stated that after an internal review, no one was found to have spoken with MBC regarding the incident. “We don’t know who said such a thing, but there’s a high possibility that the broadcast was different from the truth.

The autopsy results are scheduled to be handed over to police on the 21st.

B2uties trend B2STWETRUSTYOU on Twitter in support of Yoseob

On June 11th, fans of BEAST began trending "B2STWETRUSTYOU," which made its way to the top 10 trends worldwide. The reasoning behind the trend is based on rumours that BEAST’s Yoseob is currently dating, which has been spreading over the internet like a wildfire. Yoseob responded to the rumours via his Twitter, stating, "Everyone seems to be curious, so I will talk about it. In Immortal Song, I said I have a girlfriend, but it was a joke. And don’t believe any rumours about other celebrities. Like I said before, can’t you just believe us? Why believe those rumours and hurt me like that? Why do you have to believe those things and make me disappointed?"

He goes on to say, "Although a lot of people think that there is no need to pay attention to this kind of misunderstanding, I believe that any misunderstanding between BEAST and B2uties should be cleared up, and that is why I am writing this. First of all, all the rumours about me having a girlfriend are absolutely not true. I don’t know where the rumours began, so I don’t know how I should clear things up. I’m really truly sad and disappointed because I’m spending time explaining something that does not exist."

Finally, Yoseob ended his explanation by tweeting, "I’ll stop writing now, because I really don’t know what else to say. I keep writing and deleting, writing and deleting..."

Dongwoon also seemed to be affected by rumours circulating and tweeted, "Due to my lack of care for others I have hurt many people. Even though short messages can’t usually resolve any misunderstandings, please understand that I never lied to any of our fans."

'You've Fallen for Me' Staff Desperate Because of Kang Min Hyuk

The production team of MBC's new drama 'You've Fallen for Me' doesn't know what to do about C.N. Blue's Kang Min Hyuk. It can't be helped. No matter how hard the staff tries to make him look unkempt, Kang Min Hyuk still looks stylish, in any outfit.

For MBC's 'You've Fallen for Me', starring C.N. Blue's Jung Yong Hwa and Park Shin Hye, C.N. Blue's drummer, Kang Min Hyuk, has taken over the role of Yeo Joon.
Although he's become the leader of the handsome band of The Stupid, Yeo Joon is a glutton who likes to wear sportswear not caring about his outer appearance.
In order to portray this character credibly, the staff members of 'You've Fallen for Me' have done their best to make Kang Min Hyuk look disheveled. However, no matter what outfit he put on, it suit him perfectly, and he looked as stylish as ever.
"At first we thought that we could dress him with just a neck wear sportswear or T-shirt, but the production team discovered that no matter what clothes Kang Min Hyuk wore, they all suit him well, and we don't know what to do. We had to prepare to maximize the costumes of Kang Min Hyuk's character in order to be ready to go into filming", one of the staff members stated.

Meanwhile, MBC will start airing 'You've Fallen for Me' on 29th June.
