Dara tried her best to make a feast for her little brother, MBLAQ's Thunder.

We all know how much Dara adores her little brother, and she made sure all of her fans knew what kind of effort she put for him. She wrote, "I just woke up a little while ago. My mom was out, and Thunder suddenly came home. It looked like he finished his dry rehearsal, but he said he had to go out again after he ate... Hmm.. I'm not very good at cooking, but I decided to make him food!!! The menu is~ eggs!!! ^.*v".

She kept writing, "But!!! Thunder was worried and asked me, 'You're going to make it with the shells in it again, aren't you?'. Gasp.. It's because I've made eggs with a bit of shell inside it before... ^^;;;; I told him it was a mistake and I did my best today!!! ^_^ I also made him Vienna sausages as a bonus!".

She added, "I put out the side dishes our mother already made and the fantastic big-noona meal was ready!!! Thunder asked me two questions. 'Did you forget to put salt in the eggs..?' @.@. 'Is this fully cooked?' Hahaha he kept doubting me keke. But in the end he didn't leave anything and ate it all before he left ^_^v".

She concluded, "The meal that big-noona prepared for her dongseng who wanted to eat home food. It's lacking because I was in a hurry to prepare it because we didn't have time, but eat well and do well on the 'Music Bank' stage today!!! ^_^v Fighting~".

Looks like Thunder really is lucky to have Dara as his older sister!

130611 [NEWS] MBLAQ's Thunder and Mir talk about their sisters' appearance

Source: allkpop
Reuploaded: blaqrain@mblaqwithusa

MBLAQ's Mir and Thunder may both have older sisters in the entertainment industry, but the two of them have incredibly different outlooks on their sisters.

On the June 10 installment of 'Beatles Code 2', Thunder was asked if he thought his older sister, 2NE1's Dara, was pretty. He answered, "When I see her at home, I don't think she's that pretty. But when she's on stage with the others, I think she's really pretty." The MCs joked, "Are you saying the other female celebrities are ugly? Like Girls' Generation?". Thunder quickly corrected himself and stated, "I mean that since she's so pretty even among pretty people, I realize she's very pretty."

However, Mir thought the exact opposite! On his sister actress Go Eun Ah, he said, "My sister is the worst of the worst". When the MCs repeated what he said, he emphasized, "The worst of the worst of the worst! Even when my mother sees my sister at home, she says, 'There's a hobo over there'."

Still, Seungho chose Go Eun Ah as being closer to his ideal type, and Lee Joon said he'd pick Dara out of the two. As for G.O, he chose Dara because he saw Go Eun Ah and the rest of Mir's family too often.

130507 [NEWS] New Gender-Bending Drama: “Nail Shop Paris”

If you like dramas in which a girl pretends to be a boy, there's a new one to watch. And since its about manicures and pedicures, you may want to watch it while having your nails done.
In the new drama, "Nail Shop Paris," Hong Yeo Joo is the writer of an Internet novel who disguises herself as a boy so she can work in a flower boy nail shop. Since it's such a desirable place to work, the attractive men that work there probably earn decent tips.
Park Gyrui, the leader of the girl group Kara, plays Hong. It has been a while since Gyuri was seen in a drama. She has not had more than a cameo since her small role in the 2002 drama "Ladies of the Palace" because she was focusing on her musical career. But this role seemed like good timing.

"During our successful career as Kara thus far, I always wanted to go into acting when I got the chance so I could not pass up on this opportunity," said Gyuri.
Playing a girl playing a boy is a big challenge for a rookie actress but she is embracing it.
"From similar roles I have seen over the years, I know it will be an interesting character to play," said Gyuri. "I have dressed up as a man in a variety show so it's nothing new. I am looking forward to breaking away from my girly girl image."
In this drama, she is surrounded by several attractive young actors, including Jun Ji Hoo as Alex and Song Jae Rim as Kae.
Jun Ji Hoo previously appeared as Son Ja in "New Tales of the Gisaeng" and a student in "God of Study."
Song Jae Rim appeared as a student in "Flower Boy Ramen Shop" and warrior Jin Chae Woon in "The Moon Embracing The Sun."
Filling out the drama's kpop credentials is Cheon Dung, also known to his fans as Thunder. The MBLAQ member plays a charming and very likable flower boy nail artist.
Also starring in the series are Byeon Woo Min, who plays Woo Min. The veteran actor has appeared in dozens of dramas. Rounding out the cast are Kim Chae Yeon, who will appear in the drama, "Sincerity Is The Way Of Heaven," and rookie actress Han So Young.
Park Soo Chul will direct. Sung Min Ji is the writer.
There's no need to bite your nails while waiting for this drama to begin. It started this week. You only have two episodes to catch up on.
