Kyuhyun, G.O.,Jay Park, and Jiyoon also confirm that they’ll be leaving ‘Immortal Song 2′

KBS’s ‘Immortal Song 2‘ will be going through drastic cast changes once again!
Earlier, we revealed that SISTAR’s Hyorin would be leaving the show due to a hectic personal schedule. Unfortunately, it looks like she’ll be joined in her exit by Super Junior’s KyuhyunMBLAQ’sG.O, and Jay Park. The idols will leave the show after their final recording on August 29th.
The idols enjoyed a boost in their popularity thanks to their strong performances on stage. Hyorin placed first several times on the show and has earned the nickname, “Korea’s Beyonce“, due to her outstanding talent. Her fame brought in an explosive amount of attention for SISTAR’s new album.
Similarly, G.O also showed off his talent as MBLAQ’s lead vocalist, and he even received the praise, “G.O’s Re-discovery“, through the program.
Meanwhile, Jay Park will be departing for the States to prepare for his new album.
As for Kyuhyun, his busy activities with Super Junior have made it impossible to stay on the show. These idol singers are working hard to produce new albums, participate in variety shows, prepare for overseas advancements, and/or meet their promotional schedules, so it’s no wonder they’ve decided that they could no longer fit ‘Immortal Song 2′ into their planners.
Huh Gak will remain on the show, and ‘Immortal Song 2′ plans to recruit new members to their line-up. The production team is currently preparing specials to add an exciting twist to the program.
As for replacements, Go Min Goo PD had previously hinted that f(x)’s Luna would be joining the cast. Go Min Goo PD had stated, “Kyuhyun was added first, and Luna will join ‘Immortal Song 2′ around late August. As power female vocalists, Luna and Hyorin’s match will be quite a sight.
Unfortunately, it seems that with Hyorin’s early departure, the match between Luna and Hyorin will not be possible. Still, it’s feasible that Luna will join the program regardless, and may even take Hyorin’s spot as the next female songstress on the program.
Stay tuned to allkpop for more details!
In an another update, it was revealed that 4minute’s Jiyoon will also be leaving.

Siwon discards boy-next-door disposition, becomes a playboy in Poseidon

Super group SJ's member Choi Siwon has discarded his boy-next-door disposition, changing his style into a matured man.

In the KBS Monday/Tuesday drama Poseidon, which would be aired beginning 19th September, Siwon would be challenging the character of Kim Shinwoo, a Marine Special Forces personnel whose career fell apart due to a messy case.

On 15th August, Siwon appeared at the Nonsan, Donghae beach with wheat-coloured skin, a clean white shirt, floral-patterned beach shorts and shades, immediately catching attention. He who was emanating a valiant vibe and cool, was closely chasing bikini-clad girls who were passing him by with his eyes.

The content of that particular day's shoot was that Shinwoo had came to the beach together with his junior Bae Daesung (played by Park Sungkwang) and close brother Wonta*, and was gazing at girls all the time. Shinwoo, who was formerly the ace of the marine special force, sank into a depression after an incident in Gunsan City, and became a person who loitered around a lot.

Siwon, Park Sungkwang and Lee Sanghun finished filming their scene in a relaxed manner as though they were at a beach resort, and in order to create an authentic atmosphere, the producers have hired more than 100 extras**. Because of the persisting rain, the whole filming process was delayed for two days, but under the actors' hard work, the whole filming process wasn't affected too much. 

The drama crew for Poseidon mostly base their settings by the sea, and the actors and staff were tanned because of this. Nevertheless, Siwon's tanned appearance gave him the extra edge in carrying Shinwoo's character off in a better manner. 

The production company also expressed that "Just like the Korean Nautical Police have said, we would like to grasp the opportunity to show everyone the cooling seaside through this drama", and that "Choi Siwon, Lee Shiyoung and other young actors gives off the youthful feeling, resulting in the drama being filled with energy and the taste of youth." 

Certain character names are guessed based on how the sounded like in Chinese, may have discrepancies because of that. If anyone has the full list of characters of Poseidon in Korean, please notify me ^^
