Just like SNSD's Taeyeon, this K-Pop idol is not usually diffident, but he posted on Instagram a photo that didn't show anything but a covered face with cap on top.

He was born in Seoul, South Korea.
He is 23 years old.

On May 6 (PST), Girls’ Generation Tiffany made the first pitch at the LA Dodgers Stadium with Korean baseball player, Ryu Hyun Jin, ready to catch the ball.
The problem occurred when the ball failed to make it to Ryu Hyun Jin’s mitt. The ball that left Tiffany’s hand, instead, slammed into the ground and rolled away, leaving Tiffany speechless as she adorably squatted on the mound in embarrassment.
The pitch was quite reminiscent of fellow member,Jessica’s pitch, which went viral on the Internet, back in May of 2012.
The Los Angeles Dodgers tweeted about the event, saying, “Tiffany’s first pitch: Out of the strike zone, but still adorable.”
You can check out the pitch here.

It has been revealed that SNSD’s dorm is a staggering 100 pyeong (3,600 sq ft), which has been gaining a lot of attention online lately. That’s bigger than my parent’s 2 story house! And absolutely kills my condo in size!
Mnet’s program “Wide Entertainment News” aired February 27th, did a segment on the “2012 girls group ranking,” which rated girl groups based on their living accommodations. The broadcast revealed the size of SNSD’s dorm, stating the living room area in itself was a staggering 30 pyeong (1080 sq ft). That is one ridiculously large living room by any standard!
According to a real estate agent, SNSD’s dorm would draw a deposit of around 100 million Won (that’s about $100,000!). The monthly rent was estimated at 4 to 6 million Won ($4,000 to $6,000), and in terms of buying the property, it would cost an estimated 800 to 900 million Won

Spring is in the air and that means Koreans will be heading out to one of the many hiking trails that criss-cross the peninsula's mountainous terrain. The Korean appetite for outdoor sports gear has skyrocketed in the last few years. The demand for both domestic and foreign brands grew 4.8 times from 1.2 trillion won in 2006 to 5.8 trillion Won in 2012 (Source: Chosun Ilbo).
I've tried to wrap my head around why, after centuries of hiking through Korea's countryside in everyday clothes, Koreans have started to invest so much in technical outdoor wear. The likely cause I can think of is the wider appeal for outdoor gear as styles become more comfortable, durable and stylish

But you know what they say - all’s fair in love and war, so we’re pitting SM’s scandal-ridden sweethearts f(x)’s motherly leader Victoria and Girls’ Generation (SNSD)’s Sooyoung against each other for this week’s K-Pop Battle.
After wrapping up promotions for 2012 single Electric Shock, f(x) has been laying relatively low, but all eyes were on leader Victoria this week when a photo she posted on Weibo sparked dating rumors between her and SM label mate Max Changmin of TVXQ.
Rumors began swirling when a netizen zoomed in on a man reflected in the spoon seen in the photo, speculating he was Max Changmin

Beauty like Girls′ Generation, sexiness like SISTAR
"We′ve been through the idol group flood. This time, we′ll be different, because we′ve sharpened ourselves during our break. We already have full plans for 2013. (Laugh) We′ll definitely get more people to know about Two X with Ring Ma Bell," said Surin.
After leaving behind the charismatic image it donned for Double Up, Two X chose to return to a bouncy image with Ring Ma Bell
