Dedicating a song to one’s significant other is pretty romantic. So it was pretty womantic of IU to reveal that her song “Peach” was written for none other than Sulli. Considering that “Peach” is a love song, you’ll realize how much IU adores Sulli just by reading its sweet lyrics. The “person” in the song is described as “beautiful” and “pure white.” The singer expresses that the “person” makes her “go crazy when [she] smiles” and makes her “heart flutter just by seeing [her].” Moreover, IU revealed that, if she was to be born again, she wants to be Sulli, and considers her as one of the prettiest celebrities in Korea.

Soyu and Gayoon have been close friends since their days as trainees. It was also revealed that Gayoon and Soyu were originally set to debut as a group similar to Davichi. Although it didn’t work out, I hope they collaborate one day!

Get a glimpse of their friendship through this clip, as Gayoon genuinely congratulates Soyu for getting first place (and Soyu unexpected drags Gayoon to sing the encore together).

You Two Are Friends?! Korean and American Celebrity Friendships Part I

I'm amazed at how much K-pop has grown over the years. I remember the days where Americans only knew about H.O.T, not for their music, but because their style and hair-dos were out of control and hilarious to poke fun at. Nowadays, it's cool to be associated with K-pop and all its musical glory, addictive dance moves, and stars. I'm always fascinated when I see a K-pop star take a photo with an American celebrity, not because they simply passed each other in an airport, but because they're actually friends and these stars want to collab with our stars. Insanity! Let's take a look at folks who you didn't know were friends!
