Park Tae Joon and T-ARA‘s Jiyeon continue to fuel dating rumors!

Back in 2010, alleged photos of Park Tae Joon and T-ARA’s Jiyeon were published on an online community. Netizens compared pictures that appeared separately on both celebrity’s profiles and looked strangely identical, which raised questions in the netizens’ minds.

The pictures both featured a white dog that bore a rabbit hat on its head and an identical-looking bag strap. However, as was found out later, the upload of both pictures were different — Jiyeon’s was originally uploaded in May, while Tae Joon’s picture was uploaded in July.

Prior to photo controversy, on season 3 of Ulzzang Generation, Tae Joon announced that “I am currently dating someone in a girl group.

After this, reactions from netizens were varied with comments saying “Park Tae Joon’s picture and Ji Yeon’s picture still look the same,” “Maybe they’re purposely changing the upload date,” “Are they friends?” “Their [Tae Joon’s and Ji Yeon’s] netizens are incredible,” “Are they together?“.

Currently on Tae Joon’s online community page, it is rumored that he and T-ARA’s Jiyeon are dating.

Lee Jong Suk and Kim Woo Bin, their friendship may have started on "School 2013," but it didn't stop there. Their bromance is probably one of the strongest in K-pop!

A ranking show on tvN highlighted the best bromance couple. The two actors were born in the year 1989 and started off as models. They came down a similar path until now.

The two of them starred in the 2013 drama "School 2013" and hit two hares with a stone as they both earned fame and good reviews.

Lee and Kim have been friends since they were models. Kim debuted in 2008 as a fashion model under the name of Kim Hyeon-joong. He said, "Lee Jong-suk was already a model when I got there. He was a senior so I used to bow to him".

Kim Woo-bin followed Lee Jong-suk into acting and have been good friends ever since. Kim Woo-bin also made a surprise appearance at Lee Jong-suk"s fan meeting last year.

2013s TOP STARS ARE~ Kim Woo Bin, Yoo Yeon Seok, & Park Hyungsik!

2013s TOP STARS ARE~ Kim Woo Bin, Yoo Yeon Seok, & Park Hyungsik!

2013’s TOP STARS ARE~ Kim Woo Bin, Yoo Yeon Seok,Park Hyungsik! (Photo : MBC)On December 9th, MBC's "Good Day" revealed the top stars of 2013 that became big hits after just one appearance on TV. The top stars named were Kim Woo Bin, Yoo Yeon Seok, and Park Hyungsik.

Kim Woo Bin, who debuted as a model in 2008, appeared in KBS 2TV's drama "School 2013" in the beginning of this year, where he first rose to popularity. As of late, he's been starring in SBS' popular drama "The Heirs," and is being nicknamed a 'youth star'. Although Kim Woo Bin played a student in both dramas, he showed two completely different styles of acting, and showed off a unique charm for each. Kim Woo Bin was appropriately crowned this year's #1 star.

Yoo Yeon Seok, who debuted with "Old Boy" in 2003, more recently appeared in MBC drama "Gu Family Book," and has been nicknamed a 'professional villain actor.' He recently switched it up and surprised the audience with his transformation into a tender man in the drama "Respond 1994". He's one of the stars we're thankful for, especially because he's successfully grown into a great actor. We can look forward to more of his melo- acting.

Idol group ZE:A's non-existent member Park Hyungsik, who has been nicknamed 'baby soldier', was also chosen as 2013's big star. Park Hyungsik has been appearing on MBC's "Real Man" since last summer, and is counted as one of the stars that have been raised by the army. Since then, Park Hyungsik has gone from 'side' to 'center' even within ZE:A, and even has other small victories, such as being chosen to be the exclusive model of an outdoor clothing brand.

T-ara’s new song “2013 What Should I Do” features the T-ara members’ natural acting, and a unique musical-like dance. The music video will also be shot in a musical format.

“What Should I Do” samples from the original 1977 song by The Sand Pebbles, with Shinsadong Tiger and Polar Bear writing the new version. The song is described as a dance track that everyone can enjoy; those in their teens will love the arrangement, while those in their 40s will feel a sense of nostalgia.
