Balance: Rob looks controlled and confident as he commands the still water
There's nothing like the open sea to clear your head, and Robert Pattinson certainly seemed to be doing that as he enjoyed a few hours of paddle-boarding off the Malibu coastline.

Robert, 26, had recently gone partying without his girlfriend Kristen Stewart, and here again he was able to relax in his own company, with only the next wave to focus on, rather than his relationship status.

SHINee Shares the Criteria for Dream Girls

Slowly wrapping up promotions for their new singleDream Girl, the SHINee members took time to list off the criteria for their personal dream girls.

In an interview with star lifestyle magazine, @star1, the SHINee members each described what their ideal types would be like. 

Onew started off the pack by saying, “I like a girl who is enthusiastic about what she does and knows how to pour passion into it.”

Slightly contrasting from Onew, Minho said he likes a girl who focuses on him. “Even though she’s doing her best with her job, I hope she’ll be a person who will always think about me.”

Still not yet 20 years old, Taemin became a bit shy on the topic.
“Because I’m still young, I haven’t particularly thought about ideal types,” said the group’s youngest. “But if I had to say something, it’s a person who has a large sense of responsibility.”

True to his unique self, Key stated that he wants a dream girl who will get along with him. “I would like to be reminded of myself whenever I see her.”

But going the deepest in uniqueness was Jonghyun, who shared that he likes coquettish women (lit. translation: like a fox). “But I don’t like bad foxes. If she’s a nice fox, I’ll like her.”

The entire interview and pictorial will be included in the April issue.


Harry Styles recorded some solo songs

Flying solo: Harry Styles has been in LA to record music for a solo album
He is one fifth of the world’s most famous boyband One Direction.
But it seems Harry Styles might be ready to step out into the limelight on his own as it’s been reported that he’s recorded a series of his own songs.
According to The Sunday Mirror, the 19-year-old has co-written a number of tunes, many of which he has already laid down as he plans to release a solo album.
The paper reports that Harry has recorded some early versions of his musical efforts at the Paramount recording studio in Hollywood.
It’s thought that the heartthrob headed there last week while the band is on a break from their sell-out world tour.
A close friend of the signer told the paper: ‘He loves messing around with some of the new songs he’s been working on.
Priority: Although Harry is making his own music he is reportedly planning on staying with One Direction
‘He’s bounced some ideas off his friend Ed Sheeran and has already laid down some vocals.’
However his friend reckons he won’t be leaving One Direction any time soon, adding: ‘Harry’s priority is obviously still with 1D.
‘But when he decides the time to go solo has arrived, he’s likely to have a project raring to go.’
 Last week Harry shared a picture of himself on holiday in LA, looking cool in a pair of shades by the pool.

On this broadcast, actress Jun Ji Hyun appeared a special guest, revealing the mission of creating finger food for a party.

The remaining Top 5 chefs, Fei, Shin Bong Sun, Son Ho Young, Hwayobi, and Shin Eun Jung, began their cooking with 47 women in the 20-30s as the judges at the ‘Eat, Live, and Love Party.’ The mission grabbed attention as the challengers must reveal their unique styles while exhibiting team work in creating 150 portions in just two hours.

Each party guest must receive three different dishes, so the challengers were expected to create a large amount of food. 

The red team made chicken schnitzel and lobster salad as well as beef tartar. The Blue team made palacinky and octopus salad and camembert cheese sushi. Both teams earned much response from the guests at the party.

The voting results ended with the red team’s victory, earning 24 votes, while the blue team gained 18.

More than anything, Fei’s impressive skills in cutting and natural talent in cooking especially helped her team to win. She also played a large role in teamwork as she comforted Shin Bong Sun, who shed tears with the pressure.

Meanwhile, Shin Eun Jung was eliminated from the competition.
