►►The girl who made racist remarks to WG YeEun is an imposter?

Anti-fans should just die and leave innocent people alone >:-(

It has been reported previous about a Twitter fight between Yenny (Ye Eun of the Wonder Girls) and a Twitter user under the name @jen_shwa.

Well, it turns out that @jen_shwa was an imposter who had set up an account to defame Jennifer Choi (@Jenshwa), going as far as copying her profile picture and biographic information.

As you can imagine, the fight created major backlash against @jen_shwa, but sadly, the real Jennifer (@Jenshwa), had also been battered with hate comments and constant harassment. Angry fans had even contacted Jennifer’s workplace with complaints. We would like to ask all of our readers to refrain from posting hateful remarks against Jennifer Choi (@Jenshwa), and spread the word, as she is only an innocent victim.

We hope this clears Jennifer’s good name and hopefully Twitter will release the details of the malicious imposter.

►►Who are the most overated singer/composer in Korea?

Group Big Bang’s leader GDragon has been voted #1 by netizens as the ‘Overrated singer songwriter’.
Community site DCInside did a poll on the question “Which singer songwrite do you think is overrated?” from 22nd to 29th September. And GDragon was given 8133 (52.6%) votes out of 15,467 votes, coming in at #1.
GDragon has been writing many songs since he was in Big Bang like ‘Lies’, ‘Last Farewell’ etc. But he was under plagiarism accusations with the release of his solo debut song ‘Heartbreaker’ released last month. And that was why he was voted in #1 on the survey.

Coming in at #2 is singer producer Park Jin Young with 1049 votes (6.8%). Park Jin Young has written many hits like ‘Don’t Leave Me’, ‘Behind you’, ‘That girl is pretty’ and ‘Honey’ etc. He always promised new and fresh music every time, but he has been under accusations of plagiarism several times as well.
At #3 is singer Lee MinWoo with 1007 votes (6.5%). He has been writing lyrics since his time in ShinHwa. After that he wrote the lyrics for several hits like Jewelry’s ‘Super Star’ and ‘One More Time’ and V.O.S ‘Beautiful Life’. And subsequently for his solo album there were songs which were written by him but as compared to his lyrics-writing capabilities, there was not much acknowledgement given to his song-writing skills.

Even though we have decided that the group will promote as 6 members, it has just been decided for not long ago, we are having a headache now over when the album should come out.

He’s such a dedicated dad and husband! Hope this relationship will last longer than most other ^^

He said, “I didn’t know I will get married with Kang HyeJung so fast. When I know that she was with a child, I thought, ‘Alright we have a baby now. HyeJung and I made a baby’. I want to be with the one I love my whole life.

“For HyeJung, I can give up my dream”

“I will become a man who can do everything for this woman. My dream is that we will have a happy family. Even though music is my dream too, there is only one way to fulfil this dream. I can compromise with the reality. I want to work down the happy lane with Kang HyeJung. If I need to compromise, I will. I want to be a good father and husband and I’m thankful of that.”
