Hyoyeon talks about her new, short hair + predicts Girls

Girls" Generation"s Hyoyeon just successfully wrapped up her first publication conference for her new style book "Hyo Style"!Not only did she talk about how amazing her first book is, but also about the things we"re all curious about, like what she thinks of her new haircut and Girls" Generation"s comeback.

Hyoyeon said, "I"m usually the type to immediately go forth with something once I make up my mind, but before I went with my bob cut, I thought about it for a while. I worried about it for a month. Girls" Generation"s comeback was coming up too so I wondered, "What if it doesn"t suit me?" It"s not like I can glue it back."

She added, "Since I was worrying so much about it, the hair stylist became frustrated. She cut it off in one motion. But my members and people around me told me it was pretty, so I was happy. I"m thankful too."

And about Girls" Generation"s comeback, Hyoyeon optimistically stated, "Today Girls" Generation"s teaser video came out. You"ll soon be able to hear our new songs. I think that Girls" Generation will be able to strike [the music scene] in one stroke this year."

You go, Hyoyeon! That"s the confidence we"re talking about! And we"re loving her new hair too!

Have you gotten your copy of "Hyo Style" yet? And how excited are you for Girls" Generation"s comeback?

Girls" Generation"s Hyoyeon rocks a short bob, new hairstyle for comeback

Girls

An upcoming comeback in the K-pop world often means hairstyle and hair color changes, but Girls" Generation Hyoyeon"s new hair still has fans in utter surprise!

Hyoyeon revealed her new bob on her Instagram, and we think it really suits her! It makes us wonder why she never went that short even earlier! Although Hyoyeon has sported shorter hairstyles in the past as a Girls" Generation member, this is the first time Hyoyeon may have a bob cut for promotions.

And if you"ve been following her Instagram, you"ll know that she"s been contemplating on chopping her hair off for a while now!

The process in cutting her hair will be shown in the upcoming June 12 airing of her show "Hyoyeon Million Likes".

Many of the other Girls" Generation members have been seen sporting new hair colors, making us all the more excited for the concept in their comeback! How do you like her new hair?

Best of 2013 Poll: Favorite Comeback/Debut

Best of 2013 Poll: Favorite Comeback/Debut

Best of 2013 Poll: Favorite Comeback/Debut Best of 2013 Poll: Favorite Comeback/Debut Best of 2013 Poll: Favorite Comeback/Debut Its that time of the year again: eggnog, chilly weather, long lines at the mall, and polls!

At last, weve come to the granddaddy of all polls. Were combining comebacks and debuts because, essentially, theyre the same thing and rookies shouldnt have their own category just for being new. But the question lingers: what makes a comeback or debut great? Is it the song, the MV, the accompanying album, the live stages, or a culmination of all the above? As you ponder these variables, feel free to take a look back at our entire series of year-end polls (some of which are still open for voting) to help facilitate your decision-making process. Let the battle begin!

What is your favorite comeback or debut of 2013?Best of 2013 Poll: Favorite Comeback/Debut

Heres how it works:

1) Nominate an entry in the comments section by writing the artist name and song title in the following format.

ArtistSong Title

Eg. PsyGangnam Style

Nominated entries must be promoted releases from this year, meaning that the songs release date must be no earlier than January 1st, 2013. Any nominees which the Seoulbeats staff deems unfit for the polls criteria will be disqualified.

2) Entries can only be made as a new comment. Entries made in reply to another comment will not be counted.

3) Before nominating a new entry, please thoroughly check to make sure that the song has not already been nominated. Duplicate entries will not be counted twice! Therefore, it would be counterproductive to nominate an entry more than once because it could potentially split up the overall votes for that entry.

4) Once an entry has been nominated, vote for it by clicking the up arrow beneath the comment which nominates the entry. Were only concerned about up votes; down votes will not be factored in.

5) The entry with the most up votes by December 29th 11:59 PM EST will be declared the winner! Check back later for a special Best of 2013 post dedicated to the winning entries.

We reserve the right to delete any comment which does not adhere to the rules above, or disqualify any nominees which we do not feel meet the polls criteria. Sharing comments and links to reinforce the nominated entries is highly encouraged.

May the odds be ever in your favor!

CL hints at a 2NE1 comeback + solo album in 2013

Good news for BlackJacks as it appears 2NE1 is coming back soon.

According to a recent interview with Billboard, leader CL revealed that the girls were preparing for a comeback aimed in April. However, she also admitted that they hadnt really decided on the title song or the concept yet. She also revealed that she was preparing for a solo album that would come after 2NE1 was done promoting.

CL also added that for the solo album, she wanted to do a lot of things she couldnt do as the group 2NE1.

As to what 2NE1s title track will be like? She gave a little hint saying as opposed to I Love You, it would carry on the more traditional 2NE1 sound such as the songs I Am The Best and Cant Nobody. Everyone is looking forward to what theyll bring onto the scene this time around, and 2NE1 has never disappointed fans in terms of fierceness and power.

The ladies have also been out from the music scene for a very long time, so fans are especially looking forward to their comeback. Hopefully, 2NE1 wont be delaying their comeback any longer!

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in.]
