So we’ve officially caught the Descendants of the Sun fever, and there’s no denying the fact that Song Joong Ki has successfully won over the entire K-Drama sphere with his role as the ever-so-suave solider Yoo Si Jin. The chap can go from being as cute as a cinnamon roll, to looking all sexy and badass with a gun in hand – but what really made viewers go weak at the knees was how he managed to charm the socks off our leading lady Song Hye Kyo (Kang Mo Yeon) with the most romantic pick-up lines. Here’s a look at Captain Yoo’s smoothest moves to date.

#1 The best way to break the ice on a first date.

Kang Mo Yeon: “When I come to the movie theatre, this is the moment when I get most excited. Right before they turn off the lights.”

Yoo Si Jin: “Out of all the moments in my life, I am the most excited right now. Being with a beautiful lady right before the lights turn off.”

#2 Being an overprotective boyfriend… before even being her boyfriend.

Yoo Si Jin: “Put this [jacket] on. I can see through your clothes.”

Kang Mo Yeon: “Why did you give this to me only now?!”

Yoo Si Jin: “Because I’ve seen everything already, and I don’t want anyone else to.”

Descendants of the Sun

#3 Cracking a joke in the middle of a minefield apparently works very well.

Yoo Si Jin: “The only way to beat a minefield is to go slow. Try to relax, and enjoy the sexy view [of my behind].”

Kang Mo Yeon: “It’s moments like this where your jokes give me strength.”

Descendants of the Sun

Yoo Si Jin: “The joke was me telling you to relax. The rest is a fact.”

#4 Shutting her up with a kiss – never fails.

Yoo Si Jin: “Are you jealous?”

Kang Mo Yeon: “If she’s that pretty, you should’ve dated her.”

Descendants of the Sun

Kang Mo Yeon: “What are you doing?”

Yoo Si Jin: “I’m shutting your mouth in a sexy way. You can try talking again.”

#5 ‘Pretty’ is the magic word.

Yoo Si Jin: “You’re different in the morning and the afternoon…”

Kang Mo Yeon: “How am I different?”

Yoo Si Jin: “In the morning, you’re very pretty.”

Yoo Si Jin: “In the afternoon, you’re awfully pretty.”

Descendants of the Sun

#6 Never knew bombs could come in handy in this situation.

Yoo Si Jin: “Are you crying right now?”

Kang Mo Yeon: “Is it okay in there? Do you need anything?”

Yoo Si Jin: “I need C4 or RDX.”

Kang Mo Yeon: “What is that?”

Yoo Si Jin: “Explosives. I was okay until now, but I suddenly want to break the door and get out. Because of somebody.”

#7 Be thirsty for her, literally.

Yoo Si Jin: “Dispatched troops are not allowed to drink.”

Kang Mo Yeon: “You look like you want to drink it very badly.”

Yoo Si Jin: “I can find another way to drink it.”

Descendants of the Sun

#8 Nothing like a compliment to make her feel like a million bucks.

Yoo Si Jin: “Don’t be embarrassed just because I found out that you like me. Even so, it doesn’t change that I like you more.

Yoo Si Jin: “By the way, you look pretty today.”

Kang Mo Yeon: (Blushes) “Stop it!”

#9 How to confess your love to a girl and not get rejected.

Yoo Si Jin: “After kissing you without permission…”

Kang Mo Yeon: “I told you not to bring it up first-“

Yoo Si Jin: “What should I do? Should I apologise…”

Yoo Si Jin: “Or should I confess my love?”

Descendants of the Sun

#10 And the finale…

Yoo Si Jin: “Will we part ways soon? Is your name on the list of people returning to Korea?”

Kang Mo Yeon: “No.”

Yoo Si Jin: “No?”

Kang Mo Yeon: “I’m staying.”

Yoo Si Jin: “Why? It can’t be because of me.”

Kang Mo Yeon: “It is. I’m staying because of you. I want to spend more time with you. I think I just confessed my feelings, should I apologise?”

Yoo Si Jin: “How do you think I’ll respond?”

Descendants of the Sun

Smooth, Song Joong Ki. Very smooth.

Zoolander 2 Will Have You In Stitches

3 Mar 2016 by Arissa Ha

Cameo-packed Zoolander 2 promises 1 hour and 42 minutes of enjoyment – if you can let go of the lack of plot that is.

*Some spoilers ahead*

zoolander movie blue steel gif 

Zoolander became a cult favourite in 2001 with its less-than-intelligent dialogue focusing on male models and taking stabs at the fashion industry. Zoolander’s famous looks like “Blue Steel” and “Magnum” took the world by storm.


Zoolander 2 starts by connecting recent celebrity deaths to Derek Zoolander (Ben Stiller) who has been on self-exile (or being a hermit cab, as he calls it) following the collapse of the Derek Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good And Who Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too, which killed Zoolander’s wife. His fellow male model and enemy-turned-friend Hansel (Owen Wilson) was “horribly” scarred during the collapse which destroyed his modelling career, causing the model duo to disappear from the fashion scene.

Fast-forward to present day, a sinister plan brings both Derek Zoolander and Hansel to Rome with a promise to revive their modelling career, only to find themselves in a nefarious predicament hatched by their nemesis Mugatu. 

Cameos are really the binding agent in this movie, featuring famous faces from the fashion, entertainment and music industry. You may have chanced upon a few featuring Justin Bieber and Benedict Cumberbatch in the trailer, but be prepared for an onslaught of funny (and sometimes puzzling) scenes from your favourite celebs and fashion icons. Although the movie is marred by seemingly weak plot lines, there are strong underlying messages of friendship, kinship and self-actualisation that one can take away (or not. It’s really up to you). We think Zoolander 2 is a great movie for a few good laughs, and would prove to be even more enjoyable if you’re a fashionista. 

Catch Zoolander 2 from 3 March at all cinemas. 


Best-Dressed Celebrities At The 2016 Grammys

16 Feb 2016 by Arissa Ha

We kick off award season with a report of the best-dressed stars on the red carpet at the 58th Grammy Awards. 

Anna Kendrick

Cut-outs at the waist give the illusion of a smaller waist (not that Kendrick really needs it), and we do love the contrast of the mesh fabric. Let’s not forget that it’s the perfect balance of sexiness and skin.

Ariana Grande

Ariana Grande is rather petite but wearing the dress with the right silhouette can give the impression of longer legs.

The Givenchy gown that Adele was donning would’ve looked like it was made for a grieving widow if not for the subtle sequins around the torso area. Adele’s probably not a fan of showing her skin but we think the peekaboo slits on the shoulders are perfect for this powerhouse singer. 

Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift

Swift’s spotting a new do and the world collectively grovels about how awesome it looks. In all honesty, we think she’s copping Anna Wintour’s look (Taylor Swift, future editor maybe?) and she can afford to look less severe with heavy bangs but girl’s got the perfect spring look down to a tee. The cropped bandeau top shows off her lean and svelte body while the daring slit on her skirt plays on how long her legs are – a look only 1.78m tall Swift can pull off. 

On the other hand, BFF Selena Gomez looks stunning with her plunging neckline and bare back. Gomez usually sticks to her own red carpet formula of figure-hugging dresses with mermaid silhouettes which can get a tad boring at times, but we’re advocates of wearing what flatters you. 

Justin Bieber

It’s not hard for a gentleman to look great on the red carpet – no loud colours, nicely styled hair, well-fitted suit and an arm candy in tow, which in this case is Justin Bieber’s 6-year old brother, Jaxon Bieber. We really wish Biebs would just shave though. 

Alessandra Ambrosio

There’s a reason why Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio makes a living looking great and shows off just how important pairing your makeup with your dress is. Her sultry smokey eye gives edge to her multi-paneled gown, and the slit allows her to show off those killer heels. 

Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato isn’t stick-thin like most Hollywood stars and that’s perfectly okay. The body-positive star looks sexy and confident in her blazer-skirt combo, playing up on her assets with a low neckline and mid-thigh slit. We especially love the body chain that was worn inside – subtle and sexy. 

Who did you think were the best-dressed stars on the Grammys red carpet? Sound off below!

5 Things That Only Happen At An ONE OK ROCK Concert

27 Jan 2016 by Chew Hui Ling

After touring the world for a whole whack of kickass shows, our fave rock warriors have finally descended upon Singapore for the last stop of their 35xxxv Asia Tour on 23 January – and it’s arguably the most insane neck-snapping, throat-ripping mayhem we’ve been to in awhile. If you had the chance to see ONE OK ROCK in full swing, take our word for it: you wouldn’t want to miss it for the world.


#1 You never miss a beat.

Not even when you’re standing in line. We’ve attended plenty of gigs before, but this undoubtedly takes the cake for the lengthiest queue ever. While approximately 5,000 turned up, almost a quarter of the ticket-holders were still stranded outside when the show started at 8pm on the dot. And the most amazing thing happened: we witnessed an entire stampede of fans running uphill to the beat of ‘Take Me To The Top’ and ‘Memories’ while belting out the lyrics in pristine harmony (us included). Missed the first three songs, but at least we got an epic workout!


#2 You’ll unconsciously turn into a metalhead.

These guys are living proof that music truly has no boundaries. Anyone who has been in a mosh pit would agree that part of the magic is the feeling of bliss when you stand in a crowd of fellow metalheads, because all you really care about is simply having a good time jamming out as one united fam. Stranger, who? Here, everybody from the casual concert-goer to the hardcore die-hard could be seen swaying, hand-clapping, headbanging and wolf-howling in synchro as if they were sucked into a rhythmic trance. Which, too, took us forever to break out of – not that we mind.


#3 There will be eye-blinding singalongs.

ONE OK ROCK isn’t just about hard-edged beats, heavy-metal screamo and thundering riffs – there’s also the slower, soul-baring numbers that occupied a special place in our hearts. One of the highlights of the night was when the band winded it down for ‘Heartache’ and ‘Wherever You Are’, and the crowd lit up the pit with their phones’ flashlights and started softly crooning along to every single word. It was a beautiful sight.


#4 Taka’s voice. ‘Nuff said.

To say that we were utterly blown away by the sheer vocal prowess of ONE OK ROCK’s legendary anchor Takahiro Moriuchi was a severe understatement – the lead singer wondrously blazed his way through the crushingly intense set list with no signs of lip-syncing. Although Taka’s glass-shattering range is hard to beat, the frontman also has his melodic moments when he really draws us in with his heartfelt delivery. Of course, he couldn’t have done it without Toru, Ryota and Tomoya backing him up.


#5 You might go home with a sweaty towel or two.

Perhaps you might land yourself a Toru-drenched tank top, or even a pair of Tomoya’s personal drumsticks – regardless, you can be sure they’ll never leave without giving us a piece of themselves. Indeed, in true rock spirit, the members whipped the crowd into a complete frenzy when they began ripping off their clothes onstage and flinging ’em to the front row during the encore. Lucky peeps!

Can’t get enough of ONE OK ROCK? We’ve got a short interview with Taka in our February ’15 issue so be sure to check it out!

Miss Bangerz Engaged Again?

20 Jan 2016 by Venetia Sng

It looks like the pair (Miam? Liley?) is back together again after a 2 year split! Miley Cryus was spotted hanging out with Liam Hemsworth in Australia over the New Year’s holiday. Chris Hemsworth’s wife (future sister-in-law?), Elsa Pataky, even posted a photo of them hanging out at the Falls Festival.


And Miley was seen returning to New York with a huge rock on her ring finger! The ring has an uncanny resemblance to her previous engagement ring to Liam in 2012. Plus the girl ain’t hiding! She is showing it off by posting a few shots of herself and the ring on Instagram.
