Ha Ji Won and BTS’s V show off their unexpected friendship

The actress became the envy of ARMY (BTS fans) everywhere when she shared a picture of herself enjoying a nice brunch outing with member V, where they apparently “lost track of time talking about photography and work”.

Just how many close pals does V have in the industry anyway!? That guy is super popular.

BTS has a successful comeback show

Speaking of V, it was a big week for him and his BTS bandmates as they made their highly anticipated comeback. Besides the release of their new mini-album, the septet also held a comeback showcase (which was also broadcasted on Toggle), where they treated fans to live performances of hits both new and old.

Of course, their social media accounts were put to good use as well, with both group shots and so-close-up-we-blushed selfies being shared before and after the gig.

EXO’s Chanyeol makes waves at London Fashion Week

“No One Wore the Tommy Look Better Than EXO’s Chanyeol”, read leading fashion publication Vogue’s glorifying headline on their online piece praising the K-pop idol’s getup at Tommy Hilfiger’s Fall 2017 show (they’re not exactly exaggerating – boy looks good!).

Chanyeol then posted a picture from the event with none other than Tommy Hilfiger himself, and later, shared another snapshot of him at the famous Abbey Road Crossing made famous by the Beatles’ legendary album cover. This time, we’re questioning his outfit choice of track pants and slippers, but he’s still got his swag on.

Desmond Tan enjoys being punny in Thailand

This fella can’t resist continuing his recent onslaught of puns and dad jokes even when he’s being a tourist (oh sorry, almost forgot that “I’m not a tourist” shirt you’re wearing) in Bangkok. Which one is your favourite: “What 'tuk you want?” or “You are one in a melon”?

Choi Siwon really, really loves Lee Donghae

We can’t quite get a read on Super Junior’s Donghae’s expression in this pic: it that fear or joy in his eyes as his bandmate appears to be sucking the life out of- we mean, planting a big wet one on his cheek? In any case, he clearly survived to post the photo, so all’s well that ends well.

It looks like the (former?) bad boy is really relishing his new role as a father. “BEST THINGS IN LIFE ARE FREE”, he wrote next to a picture of himself carrying his daughter Alaia.

Well, raising a child isn’t exactly “free”, but we get the point and will digress as we settle with enjoying this sweet snapshot of family bliss.

Zoe Tay has an adorable moment with her hubby

September 22 marked the 16th wedding anniversary of Zoe and her husband Philip Chionh, and they got a box of the most gorgeous cupcakes we have ever seen to celebrate the special occasion.

A little earlier on, they also celebrated the birthdays of two of their sons, Nathan and Ashton, with a party at Kidzland, which was attended by Zoe's fellow showbiz friends like Chen Xiu Huan and Aileen Tan. Aileen shared an adorable and amusing Instagram Stories video of Zoe and her husband doing... whatever it is they're doing (it reminds us of the famous spaghetti scene from Lady and the Tramp) and cheekily captioned, "May you grow old together!"

This morning, the DJ shared a first look at her little boy Luke, who was born on August 29 and spent "3 weeks getting spoilt by the amazing world class nurses and docs in the HD ward of SGH".

Her husband Rupert then posted a full family shot that included Jamie's oldest daughter Alysia, who is clearly looking thrilled to be a big sister. Congrats to the couple! We're looking forward to more adorable pictures like these.

Yvonne Lim has an early birthday celebration

Yvonne’s 41st birthday isn’t until the 28th this month, but her good gal pals – including singer Fish Leong – already surprised her with a cake earlier this week. “[I] didn’t know they knew my birthday is coming…#forgotmybirthdayiscoming”, she wrote in her caption.

For us, on the other hand, we’re still not over the fact that she’s in her 40s.

Elvin Ng appointed ambassador for Autism Association Singapore

Elvin, who is in the midst of filming Gifted in Malaysia, made a special trip back to the Lion City to attend the Autism Association Singapore's 25th anniversary appreciation lunch, where he was announced as their new ambassador.

In a statement shared by his manager, it was revealed that Elvin, who has always wanted to do something to give back to society, chose this association as he played an autistic character in Channel 8 drama Breakout, a role that he prepared for by going to a special needs school and learned that there is so much more than meets the eye.

Qi Yuwu’s hilarious #throwback

We needed to take a break to laugh at this old photo the actor suddenly “attacked” us with earlier this week. “How brave do you have to be to sign on an artiste like this? #mediacorp” he wrote next to a screenshot of him from what appears to be an old charity show, where he dressed up as what appears to be some sort of knight. Love the headpiece, Ah Wu.

Can you believe that tomorrow (Sep 25) marks the 20th anniversary since Phua Chu Kang debuted on TV!? Irene Ang, who played the titular character’s wife in the classic, long-running series, shared this old photo of her to remind us of the occasion, although she can’t remember what she was doing in a wedding dress, nor why she was with their director.

Wanna One completes a successful Singapore fan meeting

Monster rookie group Wanna One made their first visit to our sunny shores on Friday, where they held a press conference and their very first fan meeting, after which they gathered for a wefie (we are very impressed with how they managed to fit 11 people into a portrait mode shot).

Then yesterday (September 23), their youngest member Guanlin turned 16 (they had an early celebration for him at the fan meeting), and a super cute picture of him as a baby was shared on their Twitter account to wish him well. Seriously, would you look at that tiny grin!

Janet Hsieh shares good pregnancy advice from Ella Chen

With her due date just around the corner, Janet is understandably getting a little anxious about what might happen during the delivery process. Thankfully, she had good pals who’ve been there and done that, such as S.H.E’s Ella, to turn to for helpful tips and encouragement, which she then shared on her page for other mothers-to-be.

“So, hang in there mommies. Just know that we’re in this together. If you’re having any fears or anxiety, you’re not alone,” she wrote in both English and Chinese. “We just need to do what feels right TO US, do what OUR bodies tell us to do, and trust that we are going to make whatever decision WE feel is right to make sure we deliver HEALTHY babies.”

Jiayou, Janet!

Ya Hui and Nick Teo have fun with cosplay

We’ll be honest: our first reaction upon seeing this Boomerang shot – specifically Nick – was a three-letter acronym that we will refrain from putting here. Even Ya Hui herself couldn’t help but to poke fun at them by writing, “[This is] an image that will make you vomit your rice”. Well, kudos to them for being so sporting, at least!

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, this is all for their roles in upcoming Toggle Originals series Die Die Also Must Serve.

The singer’s due date is just around the corner – just look at the size of her belly! To get her ready for when the baby comes, Kewei’s masseuse has added lactation massages to her weekly sessions, which will help to avoid blockages in the near future. Someone has surely been doing a good job at planning ahead for a smooth and comfortable term!

The #DragonBrothers take their first trip together

Korean celebs Kim Jong Kook, Jang Hyuk, Cha Tae Hyun and Hong Kyung Min – famously dubbed the “Dragon Brothers” – may have been pals for almost two whole decades, but a couple of days ago, they finally embarked on their first trip together. But hey, better late than never, right?

Jong Kook also hilariously took the chance to point out that out of the whole gang, he is still the only eligible bachelor. Hwaiting, Jong Kook! You’ll find your lucky lady soon.

Michelle Wong survives her first overnight shoot

Being an actor ain’t always a glamorous bed of roses. “First overnight shoot in a while, and to be honest, it wasn't easy. Besides racing against time and the rain, I had multiple fight/chase scenes that zapped up all my energy and ability”, reported the up-and-coming starlet, who is currently filming Channel 5’s Code of Law. However, she also added that she had a lot of fun, which probably played a big part in helping her survive the tough conditions. Jiayou, Michelle!

Sonia Chew shares a #throwback from Taiwan

We don’t know what shocked us more about the 987 DJ’s post: that huge baby llama (yes, it’s only a baby), or the fact that she has 20,000 photos in her phone (she mentioned that she discovered this picture while trying to clear her gallery). We just discovered we had surpassed 1,000 in ours and already freaked out.

After performing at the Singapore Grand Prix, OneRepublic brought their show to Taiwan, where Vanness was lucky enough to get up close and personal with them. Vanness also mentioned that he was glad that he was finally able to thank frontman Ryan Tedder for “the epic song” ‘Is This All’, which was released in 2011. Better late than never, right?
