SNSD’s Taeyeon expressed her nervousness in regards to recent Wonder Girls comeback.

In the airing of KBS 2TV ‘Win Win’ on May 25th, Taeyeon jokingly expressed her discontentment as the Wonder Girls (Sunye, Sohee, Hyelim, Yoobin and Yeeun) made an appearance: “I didn’t see any of these flowers when SNSD members made an appearance on this show!”

Kim Seungwoo replied, “But Taeyeon–you’re a flower!” in which Taeyeon responded with a laughter. Moreover, Taeyeon greeted Wonder Girls with a warm welcome: “We’re not rivalries at all, Sunye and I graduated from the same high school. Congratulations on the comeback.”

Meanwhile, when Kim Seungwoo was asked to choose between SNSD and Wonder Girls, he responded, “I choose Wonder Generation.” 2PM’s Wooyoung also responded, “I choose So Nyuh Girls” which caused everyone to burst into laughter.

[MaxMovie Reporter = Shin Sangmin]

Epik High’s Tablo confessed about his state of depression which sparked a lot of attention.

Tablo, who has suffered from depression at a very young age, appeared on QTV <Talk Asia> and confessed, “Depression is integrated into my life.”

Talk Asia’s host Anjali Rao asked Tablo to share his story about his depression. Tablo replied, “I don’t know if I ever overcame it… I’m okay though, I’m not crazy.”

Tablo shared his thoughts on the topic of depression, “I think everyone in the modern world is depressed in some way.”

On this show, Tablo not only shared the message and its meaning behind Epik High’s music, but also discussed about the attainment of his 3-year English degree at Standford University within 6 months, as well as Epik High’s second album being unsuccessful which pushed him to study for Law.

On a side note, I felt the article did not do justice on the interview with Tablo. In my opinion, the most interesting part from the interview (which was unsurprisingly left out in the Korean news article) is Epik High’s struggle with the adversities of Korean media censorship. Epik High is quite notorious for their media censorship due to their lyrics which explore contemporary social issues in Korean culture. If you haven’t watch the episode yet, I highly recommend it!
