Huge fly annoys Super Star K 3 judges

On September 9th, the 5th episode of Mnet‘s ‘Super Star K 3‘ aired and displayed a hilarious battle between a gigantic fly and the Super Star K 3 judges.
While examining the performances of the contestants, judge Yoon Mi Rae‘s expression bitterly changed.  It was all due to a fly that was annoying the life out of the judges by swinging in the air left and right non-stop.
Judge Lee Seung Chul tried to scare the insect away by striking the air with folded papers.  Despite his efforts, the fly refused to move away from the area.  Judge, Yoon Jong Shin could not tolerate the situation anymore and told Lee Seung Chul, “Hyung, let’s kill it.”  Yoon Jong Shin took a serious posture and successfully terminated the agitating fly.
After rejoicing with one another, the judges came back to their seats and continued the competition with a serious look on their faces.
Their actions made everyone on the set burst into laughter, but unfortunately the scene was edited out.

[Running Man Spoilers] Tiger JK: "I Thought Love Was Everlasting"

Renowned rap star Tiger JK and his equally talented wife Yoon Mi Rae have received attention with their bickering on SBS’s “Happy Sundays- Running Man,” which aired on September 4. With the theme of hip-hop, this week’s episode brought in famous rappers and artists such as Dynamic Duo, Simon-D of Supreme Team, and of course Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae. 

From the start of the episode, the hip-hop couple began arguing, sparked due to Yoon Mi Rae’s disliking of the attire that Tiger JK chose to wear during the broadcast. Although it was another hot summer day with a lot of humidity, Tiger JK decided to wear a black suit during the broadcast, instantly making his wife angry. Explaining why she was in such a bad mood, she said “I only wore this because you (Tiger JK) told me to.” Furthermore, the uneasiness between the two continued when Yoon Mi Rae commented on another action made by Tiger JK, revealing that “He secretly called our manager and requested that we be on separate teams”, leading audiences and Yoon Mi Rae to ponder on what Tiger JK’s true intentions were. 

Sitting in the back seat of a car, the rapper couple ceased to stop with their heated argument, even with Lee Kwang Soo in the passenger’s seat and Yoo Jae Suk driving. Upon hearing his wife’s comments, Tiger JK sighed and said that “I thought love was going to last forever.” Yoon Mi Rae, however, was not done and responded with an equally sharp retort: “Nothing in this world lasts forever.” While all the quarrelling was going on, Lee Kwang Soo and Yoo Jeh Suk had looks of utter awkwardness and confusion on their faces, both staring into each other’s eyes and asking the same question: “What’s going on?” After a few minutes and with complete silence in the car, Gwang Soo chose to break the awkward mood by asking “So… Shall I sing for you guys?” resulting in a burst of laughter from both Tiger JK and Yoon Mi Rae.

말없이 울더라도 lyrics (Hangul+Romanization+Translation)

못된사랑 OST (Bad Love OST)

가슴에 그댈 덜어내며
참기 힘든 고통 속에도
신음 한번 못 지른 여자에요
쉽게 나를 잊어가라고..
미안함 갖지 말라고..
사랑한단 말 억누룬 나에요

행복하라고 그대 위해 버리는..
내 마음 헛되게 말아요..

나 말 없이 가더라도
내 아픔 보더라도
그댄 못 본 척 지나요
그 맘 흔들리지 말아요..
못난 여자에 눈물이..그댈 막아도
한걸음씩 두 걸음씩
그렇게..멀리가 줘요..

숨어서 그대 바라보며
치일듯한 그리움에도
인사 한 번 못 하는 여자에요
좋은 사랑하며 살라고..
다신 날 기억 말라고..
시린 맘 다시 옭아맨 나에요..

웃고 살라고 그댈 위해 버리는
내 마음 헛되게 말아요..

나 말 없이 울더라도
내 아픔 보더라도
그댄 못 본 척 지나요
그 맘 흔들리지 말아요..
못난 여자에 눈물이..그댈 막아도
한걸음씩 두 걸음씩
그렇게..멀리 가줘요..

가슴 속 저 가슴 끝에..
기억 속 저 기억 끝에
그대를 보내며 울음을 삼키며..
눈물 빛에 물든
사랑 노을이 지네요

나 언젠간 말할게요
내 맘 다 전할게요
그대 안에 내 모습이
세월에 무뎌질 그 때쯤
못난 여자에 사랑이 그대 그리워
한걸음씩 두 걸음씩
그렇게 따라왔다고
그리운 그대 찾아 왔다고
