►►Wonder Girls are being bashed for not sticking up for Jaebum

One of the most ridiculous accusations I’ve ever seen…

During the recent live-chat ,right towards the end fans started directing question to Sunye about Jay. Yeeun saw the messages first and she got real sad and looked towards Sunye. Sunye who had been talking before became really quiet.

Recently some of Jay’s international fans took to bashing Sunye and Yoobin for not speaking up about Jay, considering how close she is to Jay.

SunYe: [netizens are] accusing her of caring more about WG’s American debut and not doing her bit by speaking up for him publicly and personally to JYP. One fan went as far as to post this picture on twitter, this picture then found it’s way to Korea (as you can imagine, WonderFuls were extremely angry).


►►SNSD’s Fan Club is #1 among all idol groups’ Fan Clubs

At first you’d think Cassiopeia, Hottest, or ELFs right?’s not =.=;

Netizens have chosen So Nyuh Shi Dae for having the fanclub with the strongest “power”. “Power” in this case is used to describe the positive activeness of a fanclub.


The community portal site,, conducted a survey from the 8th to the 15th with the subject, “What idol group fanclub do you think has the strongest power?” So Nyuh Shi Dae’s fanclub, SONE, took the first place.

From a total of 6,527 votes, the fanclub SONE got 1,888 votes (28.9%) and is doing great in its roles as reliable supporters for SNSD since last year. As much as SNSD is enjoying popularity by a variety of united generations, there are also extreme anti-fans, and needless to say SONE is trying to keep them in check. Whenever criticism came up, SONE showed an uncommon “power” by actively clearing the issue. Recently, when So Nyuh Shi Dae was accused of plagiarism in their song, “Tell Me Your Wish”, their fanclub checked it directly with the person in charge and even proved that the singer was the one who plagarized SNSD’s song.

But guess who else made the list!


►►More album pics + Full songs from Tae Goon’s “The 3rd Mini Album”

Very fashionista of him… I guess XD
Anyways here are more pics and full songs from his new album “The 3rd mini album”!!!


►► Kim Hyun Joong is back [with more airport pics + subbed vid!]

And it’s a good thing the leader’s back too! What a considerate guy… thinking of his fans already XD
But what are those thing that he’s carrying?? Are they mini microphones or something?? O_O

SS501 Kim HyunJoong returned back to Korea at Gimpo Airport on September 16th at 2:25pm. Having recovered from H1N1 influenza, he was discharged from hospital on 15-Sep and came to show himself in front of his fans on September 16th. Kim HyunJoong arrived at Gimpo airport on September 16th at 2:25pm on flight OZ1015, he appeared with a light blue mask and black cap. Kim HyunJoong looks a little thinner and his face is pale, he talked about his current condition to the fans.

Kim HyunJoong said, “Thank you to many of you who came here. I will become healthy again soon, so as not to let many of you worry, I will show it through my activities.” Kim HyunJoong has recovered from H1N1 influenza, but is still having slight fever resulted from the accompanying sore throat. During the short interview on this day, he is unable to raise his voice to talk. He seems to be haggard and still not completely recovered yet.


►►How would SungMin look like as a female ghost??

Look s like Sungmin had a fun time cosplaying there kekekeke

Here are the pics from “Oppa Band” on 9/13


►►The “new” SeeYa to comeback soon without Nam Gyuri

Female trio SeeYa will come back on October 15th.

With Nam Gyuri out of the group and new member SooMi joining them, SeeYa is finally coming back with new songs on the 15th of the next month. This comeback is particularly important for them because fans are wondering what style of music they will come back with after the new member joined.

The company says, “Wouldn’t there be much change? Original members Kim Yeonji and Lee Boram’s role in the group will be magnified, and the new member SooMi will bring liveliness to the group. There will also be change music-wise as well.”

For ‘New SeeYa’, many hit composers will be participating in their mini album. Jo YoungSoo, who has already shown his brilliance with SeeYa and Kim DoHoon, Park HaeWoon has presented them with songs. Especially, composer Lee MinSoo, who has made BEG’s ‘Abracadabra’ and ‘How Come’ has participated, so it looks like their musical change won’t be little.

This mini album will include new 6 songs.
On the other hand, the fans have their eyes on SooMi, the new member in ‘New SeeYa’. In 2001, SooMi has passed the preliminary round of Park JinYoung’s SBS ‘Brilliant Child Growth Project’. She is 170cm, and have a thin body and a cute face. She also is known to be well-trained in singing, and dancing.

►►DBSK vs. SM – The Decision Will Be Made This Month!

The decision regarding the legal dispute between three members of TVXQ and SM Entertainment will be made this month.


TVXQ Xiah Junsu (Kim Junsu). YoungWoong Jaejoong (Kim Jaejoong), Micky Yoohun (Park Yoochun) and SM Entertainments conferences to reach an agreement have broken down altogether.

In a phone conversation with Newsen on the 15th, the Courts stated, “Both sides submitted all relevant documents by September 11th. Both sides are not willing to back down from their positions so a mutual agreement doesn’t seem likely to occur any time soon,” and “After all the documents have been read and examined, both sides will be told of the results. We are not certain, but the decision will be made this month.”

TVXQ’s three members have been waiting for the verdict since September 11th when they submitted all documents relevant to the exclusive contract suspension request they filed against SM Entertainment. At the hearing, the Courts stated, “We will end the hearing for now and both sides must submit all relevant documents by September 11th which is in three weeks. We will examine these documents and come to a decision.”

An SME representative stated, “After submitting all documents in by the 11th, there is nothing we can do but wait. We do not know when exactly the verdict will be given.”

►►Lee Hongki has a 2nd mother in show biz

Who’s she? Actress Choi Ran! You may know her through the drama “My Girl” with Lee Da Hae and Lee Dong Wook..

hongki choi ran

FT Island’s Lee Hongki displays his unusual friendship with actress, Choi Ran.

Lee Hongki is making his drama comeback after a period of 5 years, in the SBS Wed-Thu drama “You’re Beautiful“, which will start airing on 7th October. Lee Hongki said that, he has a cross-generation friendship with actress, Choi Ran, who is playing the role of his mother in the upcoming drama.

After filming the drama “Freezing Point” in 2004, Lee Hongki became a singer. It has been 5 years till now. Choi Ran acted as his mother in “Freezing Point” and they are coming together again to work for the new drama. They have also been keeping in touch with each other all this while.

In actual fact, Lee Hongki who’s born in 1990 and Choi Ran who’s born in 1960 have an age gap of 30 years. If the period of 30 years is considered as a generation, then the friendship between the both of them is a “cross-generation” one.

Lee Hongki, who was still in middle school during the filming of “Freezing Point“, often calls Choi Ran as mother and regards her as one too. Choi Ran also treats Lee Hongki warm-heartedly like a son.

“I was very happy to see her again,” Lee Hongki expressed, “Though it’s a pity that we do not have any scenes together in the earlier part of the drama, she still calls to give me encouragement.”

The new SBS Wed-Thu drama “You’re Beautiful” talks about the growth of a teenage band and the love between the members, with Lee Hongki playing the role of “Jeremy“. “You’re Beautiful” will start airing on 7th October, taking over the slot of “Swallow The Sun“.

►►Fly To The Sky’s Brian ready to debut in the U.S.?

I’m sure he won’t disappoint since his voice is great…but will he has a good shot to fame? That we will have to wait and see..


Singer Brian of Korean R&B duo Fly to the Sky has set up an agency to help promote his United States debut, according to a press release on Wednesday.

The Korean-American singer established Onpoint Entertainment with Lee Joo-hong, who has been working as a manager for the group, the statement said.

“Our relationship is one that is not as an agency versus an artist but as family-like companions”, explained Lee, now president of Onpoint. “I will do my best to support [Brian]“.

Lee went on to say, “We have signed an overseas record distribution and a promotion deal with Sony Music. We are set to take off preparations to make a debut in the Asian market, such as in Japan and China, and particularly the U.S.”

Fly To The Sky, a popular two-member boy group who debuted in 1999, were represented by SM Entertainment, a major talent agency in South Korea, until November 2004.

They moved to a smaller label PFull Entertainment, where they released three studio albums, and it has been reported that each member will be focusing on their solo activities.

Brian is currently working on his second solo album, which will be out early December.

►►Hyun Joong has returned to Korea! [VID + PIC]

After being hospitalised in Japan for swine flu, SS501 leader Kim Hyun Joong was discharged from hospital on the 15th September. And on 16th September, he has returned to Korea.
On September 16th at 2PM, Kim Hyun Joong arrived through KimPo Airport. He even brought the documents from the hospital that the H1N1 virus has fully been cured.
His virus had been fully cured. It was said that HyunJoong’s voice had also gotten better to the relief of many fans.

And then on 7th September when they were heading to the airport to return to Korea, he suddenly developed high fever. He was tested positive for swine flu after being rushed to the hospital…but now he’s back!

►►Fans send messages to cheer lady Yoon Eun Hye on!

After several reports of Yoon Eun-hye’s tearful reaction to her acting criticism became known, fans have been mobilizing to send the star messages to cheer her on.

The messages have cropped up online, such as on the official My Fair Lady message board, and the fan support is growing to counter the initial complaints regarding Yoon Eun-hye’s acting. Most of the criticism has started to level off as the drama now heads into its latter half and Yoon is settling into her role. Fans (like the ones who comment here) have noted that Yoon is better when her acting shows sincerity, such as when she cries, rather than when she’s trying to act haughty or forceful.

Fyi, in case you’re wondering what the big deal is about an actor’s “bad accent,” it probably sounds like nothing to an English speaker but it can be quite an impediment to listening to an actor. Imajoon if soomwun talked like thass becuss she was rattling off a bunch of dialoog and sed thungs wrung. It gets tiring to listen to. (I actually read a Korean article that reproduced some of her lines phonetically, and oy. Headache!)

►►KARA are pretty girls even without makeup

Even though they look pretty lifeless in these pictures (no matter how hard they try to smile..and I don’t blame them since life as singers are not all sweet and roses), but you can still see the beauty hidden behind all the thick makeup they’ve been wearing :-)

The inspirational idols, KARA, have already landed in Thailand for the first Thai-Korea Friends Concert and here are the pictures that made the headlines!
