CN Blue releases 2nd Japanese Single on 16 Sept 2010

I was reading this article on akp with regards to top 5 worst and best groups. CN Blue came under the worst category. But do you feel the same way after listening these new tracks? I cant say for the English track since personally I feel that the English lyrics could have been better. But this is originality isnt it? Why are the critics still harping on the plagerism issue? Anyway as a CNBlue fan (but also wanting to stand on neutral grounds), Im still thinking whether I should repost that article. In anycase, be charmed by CNBlue's 2 latest tracks! I DONT KNOW WHY I DONT KNOW WHY I LOVE YOU BABYYYYY~

I am so charmed by JongHyun's voice~ melting away nowwww

J.Y.J’s activities in Japan halted due to investigations

As many of you may know, J.Y.J’s management team in Japan is the Korean company, C-JES Entertainment. However, what you may not know is that representatives for the company are allegedly affiliated with organized crime (extortion/blackmail).

As of now, their Japanese company, Avex, is investigating the situation and allegations. Since their contract with Avex was signed through C-JES Entertainment, if C-JES Entertainment is found guilty of the alleged crimes, J.Y.J’s contract with Avex might be voided. In relation, since the status of their contract in Korea is not fully resolved yet, there exists the possibility that this could affect the suit with SM Entertainment.

As a result of these unknown factors, Avex feels that until a solution is reached, they have an ethical obligation to cease activities.

On the bright side of things for fans, Avex does go on to say that although the situation between DBSK and SM may not have changed, Avex will do its best to resume DBSK activities in Japan. Furthermore, all products which have already been planned to be released will not be cancelled as a result of this.

New regulation of outfits in music programs

It seems as if the Korean music industry has regressed 10 years with music programs introducing restrictions on the outfits of performing singers.
Clothing censorship first began in 2000 with the three major broadcast companies imposing them. Now, 10 years later, the ‘checks’ have returned once more in an effort to reduce the amount of sexually-suggestive clothing and performances that are broadcasted.
Singers in their teens and 20’s are the ones who are impacted the most by these new standards, especially for girl groups competing in an aggressive and competitive market.
Fans also have not been welcoming to the change, claiming that it’s an anachronism to the current age and are weary of an invasion on the freedom of speech and expression.
In addition, the new standards released by each broadcast company differs, thus bringing about much confusion to the singers.

SBS’s “Inkigayo” set three bans on outfits: shirts that reveal too much cleavage, shirts that expose the belly button, and wearing white shorts under miniskirts. Starting from the 4th, the producers of “Inkigayo” asked singers to make the appropriate changes, keeping the three bans in mind.
SBS stated, “It is true that we check outfits during rehearsals. However, as opposed to calling it a ‘regulation’, it’s an agreement made by all of the agencies. Every singer has a different concept and style so it’s hard for us to tell them to change this and that.
As mentioned before, the biggest changes were made by girl groups since their outfits have become as important as their music and choreography. Girl group Rainbow’s “A” was served a ban on their ‘ab dance,’ leading them to eventually change their choreography and shirt choice.
Nine Muses were also forced to make a few changes due to the visual impact of their outfits. Their long jackets, which previously covered their hot pants, were adjusted to expose the shorts. The main reason behind the change was that it looked as if they weren’t wearing anything under the jackets.

What’s becoming a bigger problem other than the regulations is that there is no consistency. Most of the new rules focus on the top and completely ignore the bottom and there are no restrictions on hot pants and other outfits that could reveal more than one would think.
Although Rainbow was forced to change their choreography on the “Inkigayo” episode broadcast on the 4th, Chaeyeon, Narsha, and An Jinkyung were allowed to wear short hot pants without any changes and their performances were broadcast with no edits.
A couple viewers stated, “Which country in the world thinks that a belly button is sexier than legs?” and “The hot pants worn by singers lately are as short as underwear, why isn’t anyone criticizing that?
Few are also of the opinion that public broadcasts changing their standards won’t help anything if cable broadcasts stay the same. Such regulations might force singers to show what they couldn’t on public broadcasts on cable broadcasts.
An industry representative that requested to remain anonymous commented, “It is true that there is much confusion going around because each broadcast company has different standards. If this keeps up, singers will have to create separate outfits for both public and cable.”

However, these limitations cannot be regarded in only a bad light since the heated competition amongst girl groups are forcing some of them to come up with more stimulating performances.
Many have suggested that the three broadcast companies come up with a unified regulation, as commented by one industry representative: “Every time the standards change, it just brings about more confusion with the singers. The broadcast companies must discuss in depth with the singers and come to an agreement on a guide line that works for both sides.”
Another industry representative stated, “Checking the outfits during camera rehearsals and asking them to make specific changes in a short amount of time allows room for accidents to happen. If there’s a set standard, it’s easier for singers to prepare in advance and prevent accidents.”
Secret’s agency director, Won Geunyoung, commented, “It’s important for the singers that worked hard on their song and performance to be able to freely express it. Companies that are trying to attract attention with stimulating content must learn to restrict themselves. We hope that the broadcast companies view the outfits and performances of singers with an open mind.”

Yong Hwa, Seo Hyun met and failed to recognize their idol

It appears that CNBlue’s Jung Yong Hwa and SNSD’s Seo Hyun have only got eyes for each other.
On September 11th’s episode of “We Got Married”, the Jung Yong Hwa and Seo Hyun couple visited a sushi boat restaurant.
Ueno Juri, who came to Korea to promote the sequel to her hit film “Nodame Cantabile“, appeared as a sushi chef and met with the couple.
Jung Yong Hwa had picked Ueno Juri as his ideal woman on radio, and Seo Hyun is known to be a passionate fan of hers also.
Ueno Juri, wearing thick-rimmed glasses, seemed to notice them and tried not to reveal her identity.
However, the couple did not recognize Ueno Juri for a long time. Seo Hyun made her nervous when she appeared to have discovered something and said, “I saw it now“, but she was just looking at the price of sushi.
Ueno Juri then removed her glasses and started serving tea, but the couple only recognized the Japanese actress  after the owner of the restaurant notified them.
Ueno Juri put on a good act, saying, “Thanks for saying I look like an actress.” She expressed her sadness, saying, “You should have recognized me a bit earlier. It took too long.
Jung Yong Hwa commented in his interview, “I couldn’t believe my eyes even after I found out it was Ueno Juri.

after so long............... 2PM Nichkhun’s reaction to f(x) Victoria’s passport photo

f(x)’s Victoria revealed her passport photo to her ‘husband’ 2PM’s Nichkhun on September 11th’s episode of  MBC’s “We Got Married“.
On this episode, Nichkhun gave Victoria a present prepared by his mother. During this process, Victoria’s passport photo was coincidentally revealed.
Nichkhun smiled mysteriously while poring over the photo. Usually passport photos are unflattering, but Victoria’s was attractive. Nichkhun declared that he would keep the photo and took a picture of  it with his own cellphone, which embarrassed Victoria.
Nichkhun also created a dream team with 2AM’s Seulong and Wonder Girls‘ Sun Ye to help his ‘wife’ pass her driving test. The trio translated a Korean study guide into Chinese for her. Viewers laughed at the chaotic wording of the study guide.

TaeYeon (SNSD) spotted in Singapore + Vid

Someone twittered this picture of Taeyeon earlier

TaeYeon (SNSD) spotted in Singapore Universal Studio
She was spotted in Singapore Universal studio with her family! Stay tune for more updates!


I think its really her! She doesnt look as tho she has make up on, even so, she still looks really pretty!

I'll post credits as soon as i find out the source of this photo

quote: "Apparently, Taeyeon is in Singapore now. (via @energywen and @christipherlo) Nope, I have no details at all. /amazed"


"Another picture of SNSD Taeyeon shopping! not sure if this picture is taken in Singapore or not."

quote " RT @givemeajea @Kokokoreano apparently it's really true.   my friend works at universal studios & she bought a pair of slippers from there."

New Update

To all fellow Singaporeans reading this:

I update this post with a video, however I must say as a Singaporean, i feel that some fans' behaviour are a disgrace. I know we are all excited to see a korean star in our midst in such close proximity. But before you start pitching your tents and stalk her with your camera and screams, please think about how she would have felt. Taeyeon came here to Singapore for LEISURE PURPOSES, not to be stalked after. I understand the excitement, but please show her some respect by giving her her deserved freedom and also, please dont disgrace us fellow Singaporeans. Though im sure now TaeYeon knows for sure, when she bring her other 8 dongsaengs to Singapore for a concert, its sure to be sold-out (:

Gummy releases teaser for As a Man starring Kim Hyun Joong

Talented singer Gummy’s new mini album title song As a Man teaser was released earlier today.
The song As a Man has been receiving a lot of attention as one of Teddy’s productions and became an even greater subject of attention when it was revealed that SS501’s handsome Kim Hyun Joong and actress Jung Ryeo Won would be featured in the song’s MV.
Kim Hyun Joong’s detailed acting expressions and eyes that appeared to be full of happiness further showed his charm as he successfully portrayed the song. Along with the teaser, a portion of As a Man was also revealed.
The melody heard in the 30 second teaser appeared to be a level upgraded from Gummy’s usual songs as her vocals mixed well with the song’s beat.

Meanwhile, the full version of As a Man MV will be released on the 30th

Super Junior’s Heechul writes about Hankyung on his minihompy

Although none of the Super Junior members have publicly spoken up about the situation between SM Entertainment and their Chinese member Hankyung, it seems like they do know what’s going on and they miss him dearly.
On the 28th, Heechul updated one of the photo albums on his minihompy with a anime picture and a long poetic caption. He wrote:
There is a friend of mine.
The friend’s Korean isn’t the best but he’s amazing at Chinese
This friend’s singing is alright but he is really good at dancing
I like cats and this friend likes dogs
I can’t cook but this friend is good at cooking
I always cursed but this friend always laughed
Now that time has passed, I never did anything good for him kk
It’s making me sorry..
When he was next to me, I never did anything nice to him kk
I don’t self-pity myself usually..
I think I’m just drunk which is why I’m crying kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
It’s a special and sacred thing to have someone beside you
Though I grew up, I never realized that
A lot later….Now I know.. Wow..kkkk
There’s a reason why you should appreciate what you have
Saying “I miss him” is a phrase I can use now. (-┏)
The tears that never came out when I filmed sad scenes
Are coming down painfully now.
It sure seems like he’s going through a hard time. He doesn’t fully say it is Hankyung he is talking about but  honestly, who else could it be?

Choi Siwon’s interview with Elle

Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, who is currently starring in Oh! My Lady, was featured late last month in Elle Magazine.

In the photos, Siwon showcased his charismatic and playful image. He wore different suits which expressed different concepts, and he acted like a professional throughout the photo shoot.
Siwon asked the staff about the concept he had to express, and he also answered each questions thoroughly in the interview. Thus, the staff gave him the nickname, “manner guy.”
Through the interview, Siwon stated, “Because there is a Super Junior, there is also an actor Choi Siwon. [...] I can’t let go of both Super Junior and being an actor. [...] When the drama [Oh! My Lady] ends, I want to go on a vacation with my families. As I grow older, the importance of making your parents happy grows as well.
Well unfortunately, it looks like Siwon might not have time for a vacation after his drama ends due to Super Junior’s preparation for their comeback.

Eyelid surgery pictures of girl idols regaining interest

Just like you and I, idols have flaws of their own–they are people too. However, plastic surgery can sure fix that!
Recently, a collection of pictures of single-lidded girl idols resurfaced on an internet bulletin board. Although these pictures have been revealed individually before, it is stirring up quite a commotion among netizens as the picture groups together some of Korea’s top girl idols.
This collection displays SNSD’s Yuri, Kara’s Goo Hara, Wonder GirlsYeeun, as well as others (which included Secret’s Sunhwa, After School’s Uee, and actress Nam Gyu Ri in the original bulletin).
Netizens commented, “When you put them together, it’s really the jackpot!”, “Although it’s besides the point, I can’t help but laugh,” and “Even though they said they only had double eyelid surgery, it looks like they did a little more.”
Nevertheless, it’s what’s on the inside that counts! Right?

The girls of f(x) are looking to show more matured and upgraded music and performances through their comeback. Stay tuned as f(x)’s mini album will be released on May 4th!


The “new” Sulli and Amber tease f(x)’s comeback

Better update that list of May comebacks, folks! It has been announced that girl group f(x) will make an official comeback to the K-pop scene on May 4th with a brand new mini-album.
After consecutively releasing of LA chA TA and Chu~♡, the five girls of f(x) began to expand their activities in various fields, ranging from modeling for Andre Kim to volunteering in Africa.  After mere months since debut, f(x) has already dominated the music charts, on top of scoring numerous endorsement deals.
Today, on the 27th, f(x) unleashed a couple teaser comeback photos capturing Sulli and Amber looking radically different in their new concept. Though still sixteen going on seventeen, Sulli looks mature in her solo shot. Her hair seems to be inspired by Lady GaGa who has rocked a similar ‘do in the past.

Never-before-seen pre-debut clips of SM artists gain interest

As many of you already know, you have to go through an audition process to get one step closer to being a singer in Korea. After the auditions, you are a trainee. As a trainee, you learn acting, singing and dancing under your company.
Audition clips of many stars have been released before to create laughter or let the star reminisce. The audition clips of SNSD’s Hyoyeon, Seohyun and Yoona have been released on few of the variety shows before. However, new videos of SM Entertainment artists as trainees have been released to the public.
In these videos, you see SNSD’s Seohyun, Yoona, Yuri, Sooyoung, Jessica, Super Junior’s Kibum, Heechul, Kangin, Yesung, Hangeng, Sungmin, Eunhyuk and TVXQ’s Yoochun, Yunho, Jaejoong, Changmin. They all look more at ease back then even though they often talk now about the stress they were under during those times. They all look relatively similar to how they look now but Yuri looks quite different with her braces.
Netizens wrote,
“They’re all so cute. It’s funny to see them before they were stars.”
“Yoona and Yuri looks like babies.”
“They all look so young.”
The videos are quite endearing and they explain why the SM fambam is so close.
Check out the videos:

CNBlue’s Jung Yonghwa diagnosed with vocal cord nodule

CNBLUE’s leader Jung Yonghwa has been diagnosed with vocal cord nodules.
Jung Yonghwa’s agency, FNC Music expressed, “During the recording of Kim Jung Eun’s Chocolate on 21st April, Jung Yonghwa said his throat felt weird so we took him to the hospital where he was diagnosed with vocal cord nodules.”

Vocal cord nodules are small growths on the vocal cords that occur due to high levels of stress on the vocal cords (similar to a callus on the hand).

They are commonly referred to as the singer’s nodule. Symptoms include a breathy voice and a hoarse throat.

At the rehearsal recording for Chocolate, Jung Yonghwa repeatedly said that he felt his vocalization was off and that his throat felt weird.

An official said, “The first steps we have to take do not include surgery, the only thing the doctor recommended was that Jung Yonghwa take a break from all activities including CNBLUE’s new album.”

The representative also stated that the nodule was found at a very early stage and should be easily treated with some rest and relaxation. CNBLUE’s original plans for a May comeback will now be slightly delayed as a result.

Thankfully the sickness is not serious and Jung Yonghwa will be back soon. We wish him a fast and safe recovery.

SBS and MBC to postpone schedules, Music Bank cancelled

And just like the beginning of this month, SBS will be canceling some shows for this weekend again.

The South Korean naval ship, Cheonan had broken into 2 parts late last month while on a routine patrol near North Korean waters due to an unexplained explosion.

Although fifth-eight managed to be rescued, the other 46 sailors were trapped in the ship’s stern. The salvage operation which had been put off for days due to bad weather and choppy seas was carried out today to lift the stern from the ocean’s bed and several bodies were spotted by news crews filming the scene from a distance.

In view of the situation, SBS has decided to postpone the airing of Star King, Inkigayo and Good Sunday (Family Outing 2, Gold Miss) for this weekend.

KBS and MBC are expected to do the same shortly afterwards.

Music Bank’s Go Won Seok PD said on the 15th, “Music Bank is officially canceled this week. We can’t air for many reasons at the moment. We are regretful. We hope that everything will be cleared up soon.”

He tweeted a little while after, “This week, Lee Hyori and Rain were supposed to have their comeback stages together. I’m sure you’re sad that the show has been canceled. But next week, Lee Hyori, Rain and 2PM will make comeback stages. Of course, that’s only if we broadcast without a problem.”

It’s been over three weeks since the naval ship sinking but Music Bank is still going to hold off from broadcasting due to ongoing salvage operations.

Source: Music Bank
Via: AKP: 1 and 2,

I'm not sure if the cancellation has to do with the latest developments of the Cheonan situation or the strike. Perhaps both.

for those who find this tl;dr: Family Outing, Gold Miss, Star King, We Got Married, Music Bank, Music Core and Inkigayo will be cancelled. MNet countdown is airing currently.

SM Entertainment announces plans to file a lawsuit against TVXQ trio

Today on the 13th of April, SM Entertainment made an official announcement regarding their stance on the TVXQ JaeChunSu situation they have been tangled with for the past several months. The tables have now turned – SM Entertainment have revealed to file a lawsuit against the TVXQ trio.

Here is a direct translation of the excerpt from the posted announcement.

안녕하세요. SM엔터테인먼트입니다.

SM엔터테인먼트는 동방신기 3인 관련 가처분 결정 이후, 지속적으로 동방신기의 존속을 위해 노력하면서 가처분 이의신청 및 본안 소송을 잠정 보류해 왔습니다.

그 러나 3인 측은 당사의 동방신기 활동 요청에 대한 공식적인 입장을 표명하지 않고 있고 일본에서도 동방신기로서의 활동중단이 발표됨에 따라, SM엔터테인먼트는 지난 12일 가처분 결정에 대한 이의신청 및 전속계약 존재확인 등에 관한 본안 소송을 제기하였음을 알려 드립니다.

Hello, this is SM Entertainment.

After receiving the confirmation that the TVXQ trio will be filing an injunction, we SM Entertainment had continuously put our best efforts to keep the group in existence, thus we have delayed this lawsuit on our objection toward the trio.

However, the three are not giving us their answers to our request of continuation on the activities, but instead declared to stop all of their activities in Japan. Therefore, we are here to notify that we have filed in a lawsuit on the 12th against the trio, to state our objection toward their provisional disposition of the contract terms and also to verify of the contract’s remaining validity.

Lawyer Lim Sang Hyuk, the official attorney of TVXQ, revealed on a phone call with Newsen on the 13th, “We’ve learned about the lawsuit through the internet, but we haven’t gone through the details yet. We will respond to their action accordingly.”

Until this day, SME has been rather subtle on their take on the lawsuit by Jaejoong, Junsu, and Yoochun. Just recently, the five-member group has halted their activities all together after the release of their Japanese single Toki O Tomete. Since then, many media source have declared that TVXQ is technically over, as they’ve now split for good.

Of course, the real fate of the trio is yet to be made certain. But with all these negative answers emerging at the moment, it sure does not look so good.
