It's Wednesday and it's celebrity news time with our Michelle Kim. From kpop news all the way to the latest Hollywood gossip, our Michelle has it all for us.
Hello Michelle.

[Reporter : ] Hello Conn-young

So what is the latest entertainment news

[Reporter : ] As I have mentioned previously, male groups and solo artists mostly dominate the kpop world these days. To change this pattern, three female kpop idol groups are making a comeback, take a look.

As 2012 is approaching its midpoint, female K-pop groups are ready to make their comeback into the entertainment scene after some downtime. With more upbeat tunes and more glamorous looks, their dance and music will definitely catch fans' interest.

After breaking away from their sweet image, Sistar is coming back with a more mature look. They show off their sensual charm with their newest album. The title song, "ALONE" has an enchanting and contagious melody about the pain of broken heart and transience of love.

[Interview : Soyou, singer Sistar] "We mixed the piano and the FX guitar for the first time to create this sultry song".

A year after their previous album, 4minute are back with vampires as their concept for their newest album. Their music video shows off their feisty, strong image, matching their music and attire.

The group sings about the contrasting views of the public through their seductive melody and their latest single reached number 1 in numerous charts as soon as it was released.

The cute and cheerful Girls Day are also preparing for a huge comeback as well. They will be showing off their mature side for a change

It seems like the K-Pop world will be as beautiful and glamorous as a fine spring day, with all of these female idol groups making a comeback.

[Reporter : ] Both Sistar and 4minute have already released their newest albums and Girls Day released their newest album today.

Three kpop idols making a comeback.. I'm sure the fans are extremely excited. It seems to me though, that all three of the groups are striving for the same look...maturity and sex appeal.

[Reporter : ] Well although all three of the groups are striving for a similar look...being mature and oozing sex appeal, the three of the groups have such different charms about them, so the look doesn't clash at all. Personally, Sistar has a more mature look than the other two groups and 4 minute has a mix of tomboy and a sexy look, and Girls Day has more of a sweet, innocent charm about them.

Sounds like we will have a lot more songs to listen to and more amazing performances to watch. Moving on, what other news do you have for us[Reporter : ] I have more entertainment news on the film Battleship, singer Adele, and kpop idol Super Junior. Here are the details.

Eight days since its release, the Hollywood blockbuster film, "Battleship" has reached number 1 in the Korean box office, attracting 1 million theater-goers.
British singer Adele has also reclaimed the number one spot in the UK albums with her album "21".


A member of the kpop idol group Super Junior, Kangin has finished his military duties as well.

The film "Battleship" is about a war between man and aliens fighting over the planet Earth. Reaching number one in the box office, the film has attracted 1.2 million viewers as well.

"Battleship" is the second film this year to reach the one million viewer mark in less than a week, with the first being the Korean film, "Nameless Gangster".

Grammy nominated singer Adele returned to number one in the UK albums chart with her album "21", surpassing David Bowie and Dire Straits as the longest time spent on the top of the UK's album chart. Adele has notched up 23 weeks at number one throughout her whole career, including one week for her debut album "19" and 22 weeks for "21".


Kangin, member of the K-Pop group Super Junior has finished military service.
Super Junior members and their fans were there to greet him and celebrate his finishing of his military duties.

[Interview : Kangin, singer Super Junior] "I think this is the most important time in my life. I need time and also to try harder to heal the wounds that I've created toward myself"..

Kangin put his career on hold in 2009 to serve in the military, and will now re-start his music and entertainment career.

Fans will be waiting to see whether Kangin will take part in Super Junior's next World Tour, 'The Super Show 4'.

I'm a huge fan of Adele, I love her song Rolling in the Deep and I'm so happy to hear that her album has reached number one again! And also for Kangin of Super Junior, I remember he was involved in a scandal before he served the army.


[Reporter : ] Yes, Kangin was first involved in a fight in September and then was arrested for DUI the very next month. He stated that the time spent serving the Korean military helped him a lot emotionally.

Well, I hope to see him perform with his fellow Super Junior members very soon. And now, you have the bulletin for us
