Yo LJ! I been out of the kpop/jpop loop for a while (._.;), so I just wanted to do a quick update on celebrities and events that have caught my interest. Some of this may be old news to you, but it's new to me.

ZE:A uploaded a video sharing their thoughts on the earthquake/tsunami in Japan. They expressed their sympathy and concern for their fans and the citizens of Japan, extending their prayers and thoughts for all those affected. They also expressed their hope for recovery.

2ne1 returned safely from Japan to Seoul but because of ticket/booking issues CL had to return earlier than the other members. Dara of 2ne1 shared her thoughts about the earthquake in Japan after she returned to Seoul on March 12. She stated that 2ne1 was on the 34th floor of their Tokyo hotel during the earthquake. All the members were in shock by the whole thing.

Kara also returned safely to Seoul from Japan, and some of the members tweeted that they were praying for Japan.

Mate released their new digital single "Transform." The tracks "Yeah" and "Run" are up on YouTube. I didn't really care for "Yeah," but "Run" was a nice, mellow track. Check out both the tracks on YouTube and support Mate by purchasing their single.

SM Entertainment revealed that there will be a Korean adaption to Hana Kimi that will contain 16 episodes! ^^ I was really excited when I read this news because I have seen both the Taiwanese version and the Japanese version. I am really curious who will play Sano, Nakatsu, Mizuki? *the three main characters, in case you did not know* What do you think? Anyone got a favorite actor/actress they think will be best for the role?
