I am one of those curious to know who some of the Korean idols or celebs hang out with from the inner circle and what they do in their free time with friends or colleagues……. Oh hold on a minute, I am not into stalking or whatever, but isn’t everyone curious about what they do when the cameras aren’t rolling?? Or am I the only one?? Thanks to Showbiz on Arirang TV, it made my research/”stalking” a lot easier. I have heard/read about some of these private clubs, while others are new to me.
Okay, let’s get started!!!
It is a celebrity baseball team, they meet weekly to practice and hang out. The team consist mostly of entertainers – Yoo Jae Suk (national MC), Jeong Jun Ha of Infinite Challenge and also the team captain, Lee Hwi Jae currently on The Return of Superman of KBS, Lee Dong Wook the first actor to join the team, Yoon Jong Shin, Kim Hwan announcer and others. It’s the longest running baseball celebrity team, it’s been established for almost 16 years now. There is a team photographer, record keeper, and coaching staff.
If Han is home to entertainers then Playboys is home to actors. This baseball team boasts of Joo Jin Mo, Jang Dong Gun, Gong Yoo and a LOT more. If I ever go to watch them, I will probably pass out due to eye-candy overload.
This is another sport celeb club, but it is a football club. I am sure a lot of us know about this team, since some of our biases are on the team. It consists of actors, singers and models. Xiah of JYJ is the team’s captain, Kim Hyun Joong as vice captain and Yoon Sang Hyun the coach.
Other sport clubs include – Zomazoma (Park Sang Won, Lee Moon Se), MBC actors, LG Home Shopping, KBS Staff and Albatross (Oh Ji Ho and Kim Sung Su)
It comprises of the youngest female member of popular girl groups. Suzy of Miss A, So hyun of 4 Minute, Krystal and Sulli of F(x) and Ji Young of KARA.
For those born in the year 1991, it consist of SHINee’s Key, Infinite’s Woohyun, B2ST’s Son Dong Woon, Kara’s Nicole, 2AM’s Jin Woon, Girl’s Generation’s Seohyun, MBLAQ’s Mir, FT Island’s Lee Jae Jin…. They have a rule – everyone must be present at each member’s birthday. Isn’t that cute?? ^_^
Other age lines are 86 liner (Super Junior’s EunHyuk and DongHae, 2AM’s Changmin, JYJ’s Kim Junsu, Jewelry’s Kim Eun jung, Ha Joo Yeon) and 93 liner (IU, F(x)’s Luna and T-ara’s Jiyeon).
I’m positive everyone knows about this club already. They are known for their cray-cray and AB blood type. Chocoball means – ‘Although we’re a bit psychotic, the more you see us the more charming/attractive you’ll find us.’ It was put together by Kim Heechul of Super Junior and members include, Jang Geun Suk, Epik High’s Mithra, Supreme Team’s Simon D, FT Island’s Lee Hong Ki and Choi Jong Hun, Jo Sungmo, Mighty Mouth’s Sangchu, Natsun, TRAX’s JungMo and B2ST’s Yong Jun Hyung.
Here we have the fashionistas – G Dragon, TOP, Model Lee Soo Hyuk, History’s Song Kyung Il, stylist Yang Seung Ho and Lee Hyun Jong. This group is also known as Nuthang. According to Lee Su Hyuk, “G-Dragon can’t drink, so we gossip a lot. With T.O.P. and Kim Young Gwang, I talk about great things over drinks.” LOL!!!
Here I was thinking I was done with the age line. This club is another age line for those born in 1976 the year of the dragon, hence dragon club. Here we have Kim Jong Kook (Sparta, Kookie and Commander of Running Man), Jang Hyuk, Cha Tae Hyun of 2D1N, Hong Kyung In, Yoo Seung Jun, Jo Sung Mo and Hong Kyung Min.
Just found out about this group, while surfing the net NOW. The members of this group have nut-ish nicknames; Girl’s Generation’s Yoona(pine nut), Tiffany(almond), Sunny(peanut), 2AM’s Seulong(cacao) and 2PM’s Taecyeon(walnut). I guess this must have been where the whole Taecyeon-Yoona’s scandal stemmed from or??
This one is quite popular as it comprises of the Chinese in the Kpop industry. The president of this line is Jia of Miss A. Other members include – Super Junior-M’s Zhou Mi, EXO’s Tao, Miss A’s Fei, Wonder Girls’ Hyerim and Tasty
Kyu line is also quite famous, its members are Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, TVXQ’s Max Changmin, SHINee’s Minho and CNBLUE’s Lee Jonghyun. I was going to jump to conclusion and say they all consist of SM artists until I saw CN BLUE’s Lee Jonghyun.
the members of this group have exceptional educational background and are talented musicians. They include Yoo Hee Yeol who graduated from Seoul National University, Jung Jae Hyung who received a degree from Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris and Peppertones (Shin & Lee) who both studied at KAIST.
The members here are volunteers and consist of top notch celebrities such as Jang Dong Gun, Ko So Young, Ahn Jae Woo, Ha Jung Woo, Jung Ju Wo, Kim Won Hee, Kim Sun Ah and some other celebs. This group is also open to other celebrities into volunteer works. They also come up with different projects to work on or promote.
