[SBS Star] BAEKHYUN Says, "I Did Not Want to Gain Weight that I Even Went Without Water for 3 Days Before"
BAEKHYUN of K-pop boy group EXO revealed how much effort he puts into maintaining his body shape the way it is. On September 12 episode of JTBC's talk show '5 Bros', BAEKHYUN shared one fact about himself that shocked everyone. One of the things that the cast members were asked to discuss on this day was which of the followings they thought was the hardest to bear: cold, sleep, thirst, hunger or bathroom urgency. During the discussion, BAEKHYUN said, 'It's not too hard for me to endure thirst.' He continued, 'When I was getting ready for our concerts, there were times when I didn't even drink a sip of water for like three days.' The other cast members gasped in surprise and asked why he stopped himself from drinking water for that long. BAEKHYUN explained, 'It was to maintain the shape of my body. I didn't want to gain any weight.' He added, 'Along with thirst, hunger has become easy for me to bear as well. I've gone without water and food too many times.' Meanwhile, BAEKHYUN is planned to make debut as a leader of SM Entertainment's 'joint' group SuperM on October 4. (Credit JTBC 5 Bros) (SBS Star)SBS 뉴스 | Lee Narin | 2019.09.17 | 방송/연예

[SBS Star] 4 Boy Group Members Who Are Often Called 'Fairy'!
Most of the people come up with the terms like 'masculine', 'tough', and 'fit' when asked to describe their ideal man. For this reason, most of the male celebrities put a lot of effort and time into getting more rugged looks and building a model-like body. However, there are a few K-pop boy group members who turned those trend into an opportunity and succeeded in creating a niche market. They do not pretend like they have something they actually do not have, and do not assert their masculinity in a way that is unflattering. Instead, they try to feed off of the qualities they already have such as their cute vibe and boy-next-door charms, and utilize those assets to get their name out there as an artist. But it is not just their looks that makes them appear so precious and lovable since every word that comes out of their mouth and every little thing they do is just unbelievably cute. Let's take a closer look at these four boys who fluttered the public's heart with their overwhelming cuteness! 1. Ha Sung Woon of HOTSHOT 2. WOOZI of SEVENTEEN 3. Yang Yoseop of Highlight 4. XIUMIN of EXO (Credit Online Community) (SBS Star)SBS 뉴스 | 2019.09.09 | 방송/연예
[SBS Star] 7 Celebrities Who Look Even Cuter Without Makeup
...look. Also, it sometimes gives the people a confidence to do something by enhancing their appearance with just a few touches. For this reason, makeup can act as a great ego boost especially for those who mainly make a living by performing on stages. However, there are a number of stars who look just as amazing and seems even more adorable without makeup. Let's take a look at these seven celebrities and find out how cute they look without makeup! 1. CHUNGHA K-pop artist CHUNGHA is a master of metamorphosis. CHUNGHA looks even younger than her age when she is not wearing any makeup and reminds the public of a lovely girl next door. When she is on stage however, CHUNGHA immediately turns into a queen who makes everyone holds their breath and scream out of excitement. The fact that she is capable of switching from one character to another in the blink of an eye is a solid proof that she was born to be an artist. 2. Hwa Sa of MAMAMOO At a glance, K-pop girl group MAMAMOO's member Hwa Sa reminds the public of one legendary American actress from the 50s―Marilyn Monroe. The way she dresses and her makeup might come across bit overwhelming for some people but the more they see it, there will eventually come to a realization that there is not a single person on this planet who could pull off those things like she does. But without makeup, Hwa Sa turns into a bit of a cheeky but adorable young lady who excel at mukbang (eating show) and making other people crave whatever she is having. 3. SEULGI of Red Velvet On stage, K-pop girl group Red Velvet's member SEULGI looks fiercer and more charismatic than anyone else. If the word 'chic' could become a human being, it would definitely be SEULGI since the way she presents herself on stage is so gorgeous and elegant. But after taking off her makeup, SEULGI suddenly becomes this cute little angel who could lighten up the entire room with just her smile. 4. Taeyeon of Girls' Generation K-pop girl group Girls' Generation's leader Taeyeon's face is like an empty canvas that is ready to be a masterpiece. Taeyeon is one of the few artists who could literally pull off any concept in the world since all the features in her face are not only harmonious, but also do not give off a certain image. Whilst watching her pulling off all different kinds of styles, one thought might spring to mind that she truly is an inspiration of current era. 5. JENNIE of BLACKPINK Some say that JENNIE, a member of K-pop girl group BLACKPINK is a perfect combination of cute and sexy. Such argument sounds quite compelling since JENNIE always sweeps the public off their feet with her overwhelming cuteness every time she makes an appearance at variety shows and turns into a Siren on stage who could hypnotize the entire population with her irresistible charms. The way JENNIE keeps the balance between two of her strong suits is simply mind-blowing. 6. BAEKHYUN of EXO K-pop boy group EXO's member BAEKHYUN gives off a completely different vibe when he is not wearing any makeup. BAEKHYUN turns into a sexy beast while wearing makeup who could dominate the stage with just his presence, but reminds the public of their old crush back in high school without his smoky eyes. Also, it seems like BAEKHYUN certainly knows a way to make the most of his situation since he is always amazing at coming up with a facial expression that exactly matches his makeup. 7. JIMIN of BTS JIMIN, a member of K-pop boy group BTS is second to none when its comes to utilizing his looks as an asset. The idea of getting sick of him might sound ridiculous and absurd for his fans since they could literally spend days and nights getting to know his endless charms. The gap between his normal self and the persona he presents on stage is one of the many reasons why his fans are madly in love with him.

[SBS Star] EXO BAEKHYUN & KAI Cutely Pose in Front of a Snack Truck Sent by SEHUN
K-pop boy group EXO's members BAEKHYUN and KAI smiled broadly after receiving a snack truck from their fellow member SEHUN. On September 4, BAEKHYUN updated his Instagram with a new photo. The photo was of BAEKHYUN winking towards the camera while making a V sign. Behind him, there was KAI holding cold beverages in each of his hand. On the panel next to the snack truck, it said, 'Sending my love to BAEKHYUN and KAI. From SEHUN.' There was also a photo of EXO on the top of the snack truck. It is unknown where BAEKHYUN and KAI were and what they were doing, but it seemed like they were busy filming something for SuperM ahead of its upcoming debut. This could be inferred from one of the hashtags that BAEKHYUN used in the caption; in the caption, BAEKHYUN had written, 'Dear our maknae SEHUN, thanks a lot for this! #BestGuy #KAIBAEKHYUN #SuperM' Meanwhile, SM Entertainment's 'joint' group SuperM is scheduled to release its debut album on October 4.

[SBS Star] VIDEO: BAEKHYUN Shares a Video of SuperM Members Bonding Over a Meal
All seven members of SM Entertainment's 'joint group' SuperM―BAEKHYUN, KAI, TAEMIN, TAEYONG, MARK, LUCAS and TEN gathered together for some barbecue. On August 31, BAEKHYUN held a live broadcast on his Instagram for a couple of minutes. At the start of the video, BAEKHYUN said, 'I've just finished practicing. I practiced hard even though I have lots of other things to do.' He continued, 'So, I only got to sleep for like half an hour today. I'm exhausted now. Anyway, I came to eat at a restaurant after practice. I'm here with these guys. Let me present them to you. 3, 2, 1!' Then, BAEKHYUN panned his camera towards TAEMIN, KAI, TAEYONG, MARK, LUCAS and TEN, who were sitting around a table. When everyone got in the frame, they shouted, 'Yay! Hi, everyone. We are SuperM!' and waved their hands. As they did not know what else to say, they suddenly fell silent after that. With an awkward smile, BAEKHYUN said, 'Ummm... I probably should end our introduction here.' BAEKHYUN turned the camera back to him and all the other guys burst into laughter seeing him sweat. While BAEKHYUN was asking his followers a question, TAEYONG and TAEMIN went over to BAEKHYUN and made some playful poses behind him. That was when TAEMIN said, 'BAEKHYUN is going to pay for this meal, by the way!' and everyone except for BAEKHYUN shouted for joy upon hearing TAEMIN's words. But it did not seem like that was something BAEKHYUN agreed on doing, because he just awkwardly smiled without saying anything. A few seconds later, BAEKHYUN came to himself and commented, 'I didn't see this coming, but yeah... Well, we are going to have our meal now.' BAEKHYUN then said goodbye and quickly ended the live broadcast. Meanwhile, SuperM is planned to make its official debut on October 4.
