In a bizarre turn of events, Super Junior’s Leeteuk has been exposed as having actually gone to the army and, like, actually having done stuff.

I didn’t like it.” Though Leeteuk has returned to Kpop and been awarded his full set of extended rights again, the entire country is shaken by the disturbing news.

Netizens were outraged today after watching Secret’s new interview on the 1theK program, #hashtag, where Hyosung gave troubling clues to her association with the secret government that controls every single human being on this planet. While Han Sunwha was excited about the choreography for their new single, “I’m in Love,” Hyosung was more excited for the upcoming one world government that would topple petty regimes and eliminate democracy from here to the western hemisphere. While Jung Hana had difficulty with the rap, Hyosung noted that the real difficulty would be taking down resistance fighters in jungle nations that house valuable natural resources. She also shaped her hands into a pyramid formation and said, “What we say, goes.” At press time, Hyosung has apologized for misusing terms she had no idea were associated with the shadow government.

The dictator is quoted as saying, “I will not have my dreams, and the dreams of my children, upset by B.A.P.’s aggressive tactics and violent dance moves.

1. Show! Music Core! to Require Lip-syncing
In a complete reversal, MBC executives will now require all performers on Show! Music Core! to lip-sync while on stage. The requirement includes show hosts Kim Sohyun, Minho, and Zico.

It makes us gag.” Block B’s Zico responded positively to the challenge. “There’s so much work to do with voice changing. Auto-tune, for example, has almost never been done before anywhere ever. The future is very bright.”
