10 Moments That Prove B.A.P Is The Realest K-pop Group Ever

16 Jun 2016 by Chew Hui Ling

With all the manufactured perfection in the idol business, it’s tricky to figure out whether members in a group are really best pals with one another, or are simply putting on a pretentious act on camera. But when it comes to B.A.P, there’s no arguing the fact that the boys have indeed formed a bond like no other. In honour of their impending visit to Singapore on 27 June, it seemed about time we paid tribute to the septet’s unbreakable bromance (’cause you’ll definitely see a lot of that on stage).

Taylor Swift Spotted With New Bae Tom Hiddleston

16 Jun 2016 by Venetia Sng

Guess who’s back in the game again? Taylor Swift was spotted snuggling and snogging with Mr Loki (Tom Hiddleston) at a beach just mere weeks after breaking up with her ex Calvin Harris!

Looks like Taylor isn't shedding any tears or any "Bad Blood" over recent break up with Calvin Harris.

Everyone knew  that the pair hit it off when they met at the MET Gala last month and were spotted dancing together.

It’s reported that Hiddleston has been courting her with flowers ever since. Though Tay Tay mentioned that no third party was involved in the break up with Harris, the timing doesn’t seem too good.

Harris has since deleted the tweet that announced their break up. We sense animosity…

Movie of the Week: Finding Dory

15 Jun 2016 by Venetia Sng

We’ve waited 13 years for this movie and the wait is finally over. Our movie of the week Finding Dory is opening this week!

Six months after the events of the first film, Dory suddenly recalls her childhood memories. Remembering something about “the jewel of Morro Bay, California”, accompanied by Nemo and Marlin, she sets out to find her family. She arrives at the Monterey Marine Life Institute, where she meets Bailey, a white beluga whale; Destiny, a whale shark; and Hank, an octopus, who becomes her guide.

Here are 3 fun tidbits about the film!

Finding-Dory

#1 Even though it has been 13 years since Finding NemoFinding Dory takes place six months after the events of the prequel. 

Finding-Dory-Whale-Shark-Destiny

#2 There are more female characters like Destiny the Whale Shark in Finding Dory as compared to Finding Nemo as there are more female writers involved.

Finding-Dory-Hank-Septopus

#3 Hank the Septopus (’cause he only has seven tentacles), is the hardest animation Pixar has ever produced. It took a year to create Hank and one shot alone took 6 months to produce!

Finding Dory will be in cinemas 16 June!

After nearly four years together, it’s no surprise that K-pop boy band CROSS GENE knows each other inside out, and they definitely have no qualms dishing the dirt on one another during an exclusive email interview. We’ve yet to see them in real life (ICYMI: It’s D-3 to their Singapore fanmeeting this Saturday!) and the lads are already cracking us up with their hilariously brutal revelations. Find out which member’s obsessed with girl groups, showers the least, the most likely to die in a zombie apocalypse, and more.

CROSS GENE

Who’s the most awkward around girls? Sangmin

Seyoung: He’s a simple countryside boy and he gets embarrassed really easily.

Takuya: There’s actually a story behind Sangmin. We were once on a show called THE SHOW and Sangmin was made to do a punishment because he lost a game – and it was to get signatures from female idol groups. He was so nervous that he was lost for words when he approached them!

Takuya

Takuya (Gorgeous Gene)

Who takes the longest to wake up in the morning? Takuya and Seyoung

Sangmin: [Seyoung’s] the oldest member and it seems to me that it takes a lot of effort for him to wake up. (Laughs)

Takuya: I’ve always been terrible with mornings. I’m even nicknamed the ‘king of latecomer’ because I’d be late for school for at least five times a month. I’m sorry…

Yongseok: I always see [Takuya] getting ready 15 minutes before his appointment. It’s a mystery.

Sangmin

Sangmin (Organic Gene)

Who spends the least time in the shower? Sangmin and Takuya

Takuya: Since we’re living together, we can tell that Sangmin showers quickly. The other members are always saying “You’re done already?” [to him].

Casper: Takuya is the tallest member of the group so it’s faster for the water from the showerhead to reach his body.

Casper

Casper (Wild Chic Gene)

Who’ll be the last member to get married? Seyoung and Takuya

Sangmin: Seyoung’s a little crazy. He has very high expectations for women so it’ll take him time to decide on someone.

Casper: Takuya’s really tall so it’ll be hard to find someone who matches his height.

Takuya: Me. I still don’t know what ‘love’ is…

Seyoung

Seyoung (Miracle Gene)

Who’s the most obsessed with girl groups? Seyoung

Sangmin and Takuya: He’s always watching girl group videos!

Shin

Shin (Presh Gene)

Who’s the most likely to cry when CROSS GENE wins first place in a music show? Shin

Shin: I’m the type to be easily moved to tears. I get touched very quickly.

Yongseok

Yongseok (Mypace Gene)

Who’ll be the first one to die in a zombie apocalypse? Seyoung, Takuya, and Sangmin

Takuya: Seyoung’s the kind who claims that he could take on the zombies on his own, but end up getting bitten by the zombies. It’s the same with our choreography as well. Like, he’d say that he can perfect the dance moves, but he wouldn’t be able to do it in the end!

Yongseok: Takuya would think it’s a chore to run away, and would rather succumb and live his life as a zombie.

Shin: Sangmin’s really naïve and would probably attempt to make friends with the zombie, which will eventually lead him to his death.

The boys will be in town for their CROSS GENE FANMEETING LIVE 2016 “Parallel World” in Singapore on 18 June at MILLIAN Singapore! If you haven’t already gotten tickets to the show, don’t miss your last chance to grab ’em on crossgene2016.peatix.com!

4minute To Officially Split

13 Jun 2016 by Venetia Sng

Is this the year for members leaving and groups disbanding or what? Though we knew that the girls’ contracts with Cube Entertainment will soon be coming to an end during this month, we didn’t expect for them to announce the disbandment of the group so soon. According to reports, only HyunA has re-signed with the company and the rest are still in the talks about renewing with the label again. Who knew that our favourite 4minute comeback ‘Hate’ would be the last one.
