Kikwang and Hyosung Parodied Famous Sit-up Scene From Secret Garden

On the 22nd episode of 100 Points out of 100, Kikwang and SECRET’Hyosung guested and parodied the famous sit-up scene from the hit drama series,  “Secret Garden“.
Because Kikwang had always named Hyosung as his ideal woman, cast members were more than happy to pair the two together. Although Hyosung agreed to the parody, she still expressed her shyness by keeping a fair of amount of distance from Kikwang once the scene began rolling.
MC Park Kyung Lim, frustrated by the slow development of pace, abruptly cut them off and asked Hyosung to inch in closer. Despite her lead, the couple failed to close the gap any further, leading MC Kim Shin Young to jump in and add, “If you’re that far apart, how are you going to hear his heart beat?”
Check out the funny scene again:

On April 22nd, Super Junior’s Heechul, Junhyung, and Supreme Team’s Simon D showed off their close friendship through a photo.
Heechul tweeted, I’m over at Simon D’s with YongYong. I’m not even kidding, we’re always just hanging out with only men, talk about male loyalty. Poor YongYong, he can only ever hang out with men because of me.”
In the picture, netizens can see the three sitting in the couch with Heechul wearing a spongebob socks.
This is not the first time Heechul posted a photo of him hanging around with Junhyung. Previously, he posted another one but it was with Epik High's Mithra (April 18th) and another on April 13th together with Mithra again and FT Island's Lee Hongki. 
These boys have developed their friendship for some months already and even call their groups before as choco boys. In absence is actor Jang Jeun Seuk who is currently promoting his album around Korea and Asia but he used to hang out with them before as well.

Kikwang, DooJoon, Kim Junsu and Kim Hyun Joong Football Fashion

Celebrity football team FC Men has become a hot topic of discussion with members including Song Joong Ki, Kim Bum along with Kim Junsu and Kim Hyun Joong as team captains.
They have attracted attention because of their natural look on the playing field which is very different from their glamourous look onstage. They show off bright and cute images to their fans who has never seen this simplicity from them before.
Let us compare the differences between the sports look and charisma on stage of these idol stars.
Idol stars normally portraying a strong and manly charisma show-off a hidden charisma when they show their fresh and modest looks while playing sports. Kim Junsu’s unmade-up hairstyle and sports attire show off a fresh and energetic look. Doojoon drops his usual sharp image to form a mild and natural sportsman look. Kikwang and Hyun Joong’s beanies highlight their small faces, showing a cute image.

Onstage, their manliness is very obvious while their charisma stronger than anyone else captivates their audience’s attention. Kim Junsu wears a big men’s necklace at his wide neckline, adding to his manly charisma and grandness. Yoon Doojoon pairs his long, oval face with a simple collar, adding to his handsome look. Whereas Lee Kikwang pairs a blue and white semi casual outfit with simple jewellery, showing a clean and crisp image.

Jewelry designer Kim Jeong Ju says, ” There is nothing better to highlight an artist’s charisma onstage besides jewellery. With the right pairings of jewellery and fashion, the audience can see different styles of manly charisma and a cute image better.
