MBC’s new drama that will air on Mondays and Tuesdays, starring Park Yoochun and Lee Dahae, is now officially named Ripley.

On the morning of April 15th, MBC states, “Ripley will be filling in the Monday and Tuesday slot after The Duo finishes in May. The production crew had considered names such as Miss Ripley and Goodbye Miss Ripley, but had ultimately chose Ripley.”

A great deal of attention has been placed on Ripley due to its cast, which includes Park Yoochun, Lee Dahae, Kang Hyejung and Kim Seungwoo. The drama revolves around a white lie that led to more lies and ultimately left the protagonist with nothing in the end.

“Not just good looking, but fashionable too?”

Idols’ every movement create massive ripples in their fans’ lives. Not only on the stage, even in their daily lives, the idols’ every move is the centre of everyone’s attention.

The stars’ personal style, wearing clothes that they own and wasn’t styled by their stylists is what garners the most attention these days. From this, fans are able to see how their idols are influenced by the current fashion trends and how they interpret it – bringing both eye candy and envy to the fans.

For a lot of idol groups, wearing everyday clothes still couldn’t diminish their ‘star style,’ and even with just a t-shirt, they are able to radiant their individuality.

Here are some of the fashionable stars from popular idol groups:

“Best On Screen Boyfriend” Representative: JYJ’s Park Yoochun

The bright eyes on his petite face, with skin that is softer than women, and shoulders that are as wide as the Pacific Ocean – using unrealistic proportions and exaggerated facial features to describe the very sought-after Park Yoochun. Being able to wear the open collar sweater and UGG boots that most men avoid, Yoochun shows that he can wear whatever he desires while still maintaining his own style and chicness.

Especially in the recently released production photos of MBC’S “Miss Ripley,” displaying his perfectly straight shoulders in a suit. This attracted comments such as “Unrealistic perfection” and “Perfect on screen boyfriend” from female fans – Yoochun can pride himself in knowing that he is one of the most fashionable star both on and off screen.

The Delicate Cold Man: JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong

In the same group as Park Yoochun, JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong has impeccable fashion taste as well. No matter what he’s wearing, it still seems like he just walked out from a poster shoot. Especially the smiley face hoodie, deep V-neck t-shirt and other uniquely styled items that Jaejoong wore – he is always bound to be highly praised.

Recently, in the pictures that were taken during the rehearsals of the world tour, Jaejoong wore a Hello Kitty tracksuit that once again garnered a huge amount of attention. Netizens that saw the picture left encouraging comments such as “Such a fashionable outfit!” and “Even clothes that you wear to rehearsals are chic.”

Irrelevant parts omitted.

I’m sure everyone has found out by now, but it seems that Super Arena has revoked their permission for the charity event.

But we have received explanations from Zak that they are now still carrying out negotiations…..Does that mean that there is still a chance?

The goal of this was to raise money for the victims, so why can’t they sing?

Not allowing raising of donations, isn’t this an act of being anti society?

Why is it that the problems between adults become priority over saving the victims?

Or does that mean that it would be okay to just stand in front of everyone without singing?

But no, if they don’t sing there’s no meaning

Because there singing is not just to raise money, but it is their precious power to give courage and hope to everyone

Somehow, I want them to keep trying!!

Deliver this! JYJ’s feelings!!!
