Cube Entertainment heading to England & Brazil for concerts?

It’s been reported that Cube Entertainment artists 4Minute, B2ST, and G.NA are planning a joint concert in London, England this November.

This decision was made by Cube following a successful joint concert held last month in Paris by SM Entertainment featuring artists such as SNSD, and TVXQ.

An associate of Cube Entertainment said, “We’re aiming to hold the Cube concert in London, England this upcoming November“. But before the possible concert in England, Cube Entertainment will be holding a concert titled, “United Cube” in Jamsil’s general Stadium in Seoul on August 14th.

In addition, it was allegedly reported that Cube Entertainment is also planning on holding a concert in Brazil as well. The concert in both UK and Brazil were primarily requested by local promoters and recent flash mobs created by European and as well as American fans had a great impact in sealing the deal.

Meanwhile, fans in England are holding a flash mob event on the 9th, at 3PM, at Trafalgar Square, London in hopes for a Big Bang and 2NE1 concert.

Are 4minute’s HyunA and MBLAQ’s Lee Joon dating?

There are currently rumors going around that 4minute’s HyunA and MBLAQ’s Lee Joon are a couple.

On June 22nd, HyunA and Lee Joon were seen together on a flight that was heading from Okinawa, Japan to South Korea.

The two singers sat together in the first row of the business class section, and were reportedly seen acting like a couple throughout the two-hour flight.

A witness on the flight claimed, “HyunA and Lee Joon were dressed casually and acted like a college couple. Maybe it was because there weren’t many people in the business class section, but they seemed very comfortable and weren’t wearing sunglasses or hats.”

Another witness added, “HyunA and Lee Joon were teasing each other while holding hands, and also leaned on each other’s shoulders. They looked like a cute couple.”

However, the agencies of both singers have refuted the claims explaining that the two were just filming for a music video together.

A representative from Cube Entertainment firmly stated, “HyunA and Lee Joon only went to Okinawa together to film a music video. They are not dating. They had to act like a couple during the flight because they were filming for a scene. Many staff members were also on the plane with the two.

The representative added, “We don’t know why this has become an issue on the day of HyunA’s new album release. This was in no way a noise marketing tactic. Why would we have used such a tactic, when we have nothing to gain from the issue.”

Lee Joon’s agency J.Tune Entertainment also clarified, “They were only filming for a music video. The two are close friends so people must have misunderstood their relationship.”

It seems like people believed the rumors had substance because HyunA and Lee Joon had both previously referred to each other as their ideal match through radio and show programs.

The two had also danced as a couple during the ‘SBS 2010 Music Festival‘, took a wedding photo shoot together, and hosted the show ‘Remote‘ together this past January.

4minute’s HyunA performed on “Dancing With The Stars” despite her ankle injury

4minute’s HyunA wowed her fans after they discovered she performed on “Dancing With The Stars” with an ankle injury. The star reportedly sustained the injury while rehearsing at an SBS special concert, and was required to put on a cast.

But HyunA was determined to make a good impression on the show, and so she not only performed the full choreography for her routine, but did so without the cast. Her effort seems to have paid off, as she lived up to her title of being the most anticipated female dancer on the show. 

She also never talked about her injury on air, and people weren’t able to catch that she was injured at all due to her fantastic performance.

Unfortunately, HyunA must keep the cast on for the next two to three weeks.

Cube Entertainment commented, “We are continuing treatment in case her injury gets worse. She has a lot of determination to do well, so she will be doing her best for all of her future performances.”

Cube Entertainment releases ‘Fantasy Land episode 1′ for upcoming family concert

The announcement was then followed up with the very first ‘Fantasy Land‘ teaser video for the upcoming “United Cube Concert“.

In the video, B2ST’s Yoseob is seen texting the rest of the Cube family about the huge event. Every Cube star (including members of B2ST, 4minute, and G.NA) respond with enthusiasm, but they’re all puzzled as to why they didn’t hear back from Dongwoon

It incites a flurry of messages, as everyone bugs Dongwoon to respond. He suddenly appears behind Yoseob, and laughs as he quips that he already knew about the concert. In the end, poor Yoseob looks dejected as he sulkily steps up for his turn on the shoot.

The concert will take place on August 14th. Fans can grab tickets through the Interpark website starting from June 14th at 8:00PM KST.

4minute reveals who has the prettiest bare face in the group

On May 22nd, the reporters of MBC’s “Section TV” visited the set of 4minute’s latest endorsement photoshoot, and interviewed the girls on their looks and image.

Since the endorsement was for a makeup brand, the reporters were inspired to ask: “Out of all the members of 4minute, who do you think has the prettiest bare face?” Unanimously, the members all chose leader Jihyun, and reasoned that she had healthy skin that shined even without makeup.

HyunA added, “Jihyun looks better without makeup, actually. She was born with nice skin so she doesn’t even need isolating skin care.”

As this was the girls’ first makeup endorsement since their debut, they weren’t able to hide their excitement. “Our CEO was both surprised and glad that we landed the deal since he thought that we don’t have that kind of innocent, sweet image that the brands usually require.”

When asked to choose a member that pays the most attention to the way they look, HyunA confidently chose herself before the other members had a chance to answer.

4minute talks about their close relationship with B2ST

4minute recently opened up about their relationship with sibling group B2ST.

As B2ST were making their comeback on KBS’s “Music Bank“, 4minute was approached about their labelmates. The girls confessed, “They’re not like our siblings (brothers and sisters), they are like our brothers (treated like brothers instead of sisters).”

During a recent interview, 4minute said, “As B2ST is getting more popular, their female fans seem to be worried that they will get into scandals with other girl groups. However, the problem is that even B2ST’s fans don’t see us as a girl group, but rather as B2ST’s sibling group. We were shocked to hear their fans say, ‘If you are going to get in a scandal, get in one with the 4minute unnis’.

Both 4minute and B2ST are groups under Cube Entertainment, and fans have known about their close relationship since their respective debuts.

4minute continued, “B2ST’s fans even take us easy. Our fans even pressured that if we are to have joint stages for year-end festivals, that we don’t do them with any other team besides B2ST.

Currently, 4minute is promoting their follow-up track “Heart To Heart” and are passing the baton to B2ST, who are making their comeback this week with their title track “Fiction“.

4minute’s Sohyun once dropped out of a girl group because of anti-fans

4minute’s maknae Kwon Sohyun stunned the public when she revealed that she originally debuted with an young girl group called ‘Orange‘.

Orange originally debuted back in 2005, and was comprised of grade school girls.

While guesting on Mnet’s music talk show, ‘Beatles Code’, Sohyun confessed that she entered the music industry when she was in 5th grade, at the age of 12.

Unfortunately, she gave up halfway because of the pain she experienced due to harsh criticisms.

She said, “I tried not to become a singer. Since it was a primary school girl group, the envy and jealousy of my classmates peaked. There was even an internet anti-cafe, so I was very hurt by that. I couldn’t get along with my classmates except for my closest friends, and I’ve also been made an outcast before.

Continuing, she then explained how she got into 4minute. “(After ending activities as a singer) I saw one of my seniors in middle school debut as a singer. At that time, she and I were compared a lot, and my heart hurt greatly because she was being thought of as this person who was just starting out with great potential, and I was this failure. Because of this, I started going around to auditions.

Additional details on Sohyun’s confession can be found through ‘Beatles Code’ on the 19th.
