Cute vs. Cuter

If my Kpop idols don’t stop tweeting adorable pictures of themselves and little kids, I’m going to explode.

I’m taking to you, Mr. Shibrows!

Don’t you know those things are LETHAL?

But the best news of the day?

Heenim has a TWITTER!

How did I not know this?

And he’s showing his kitties some love:

Hee ❤

Idols and Musicals

Lately a whole bunch of Korean “idol stars” have been venturing into the theater – for musicals.

(There will be plenty more of these, too – apparently the Korean musicals industry is expected to triple in the next couple of years. The smash success of “The Phantom of the Opera” in 2000 set the scene for musicals in Korea. “Mamma Mia!” and “Beauty and the Beast” also hit it off. And the higher-ups like them because they’re relatively cheap to produce. ) 


Kangin and Heechul of Super Junior are both currently starring in “Xanadu”


They switch off playing “Sonny,” the lead character.

Here’s Heechul singing “Don’t Walk Away”:

Haha! I always thought his singing face was sort of funny… Anyway, here’s Kangin doing his romantic scene:

Ends a little awkwardly, there… They messed up. Luckily it was only a press conference, not a real performance.


They actually had a TV show called “To Be Kangin and Heechul” (강인하고희철하게) about the boys’ preparation for the musical. The first episode was subbed by ilovekido *here. Personally, I didn’t think it was all that interesting, but in Episode Two (not subbed) there are some GREAT clips of Kangin & Heechul trying (and failing) to rollerskate.




Seungri of Big Bang was the lead in “Sonagi” –

“Sonagi” or “Rain Shower” is a musical based on the classic Korea short story written in 1959. News, clips and interview:



Dae Sung of Big Bang in “Cats” –

His character was “Rum Tum Tugger,” the “lady’s tom”  -_-   …

Interview and a few clips of him in full cat regallia, shakin’ his fur:

Heenim & his Kitties

Heebum is Heechul’s beautiful Russian Blue:

He was given to Heechul by some fans in November of 2006.

Here’s an early picture:


Originally, Heebum was named after Heenim and Kibum, Heechul’s housemates at the time. When Hankyung, also living with Heechul, heard this, he wanted to be included too. So the name extended to become “Han Heebum.” Then a member of Trax & friend of Heechul’s wanted to be included too, so it became “Han J Heebum.” They think sounds like a Japanese name…   But he’s just Heebum for short.



They say that pets tend to look like their owners.

Don’t you think Heebum looks like Heechul?


One of Heechul’s many semi-naked pictures taken with Heebum & posted on his Cyworld.

Here’s another one:


Baby Heebum! Awwww… Look at those big eyes.


And now…

Heechul has another kitty!

Meet Champaign:

Champaign in Korean is spelled 샴페인. He is named 샴 (pronounced shyam) for being a Siamese cat and 페인 (disabled in Korean) because the cat is a bum who is always sleeping. Thus: 샴페인 or Champaign.

Here’s Heebum and Champaign together:


Too cute!
