oh Donghae you cheesy goose XD
Super Junior-M has arrived in Taiwan, and all of their seven members have outdone themselves. Not only did they walk down the stage during their performance to get closer to the audience, they sang more than 12 songs during the entire fan meet, including title track [SUPER GIRL].
Henry, who is of Taiwanese descent, also played and sang [An Jing], one of Jay Chou’s biggest hits. All of this only served to show how close they could get to their Taiwanese fans.
SJ-M’s fan meet was held yesterday at the Taiwan International Convention Centre, and was extremely different from the fan meets of other Korean artistes who had visited Taiwan. Apart from showing MVs during breaks and playing games with fans like most fan meets, at least three million TWD was spent just on the lighting and 3D effects for the stage.
When interacting with the fans, Donghae sweet-talked to them: “Hi my dearest babies, I’m Donghae”, “Do you want to marry me?”, causing the entire venue to erupt into screams. Fans replied with “Saranghaeyo”, showing their intense support for their idols.
SJ-M played a musical version of [As The Wind Blows] (non-competitive substitute for musical chairs), and the fans that won could get hugs from the members. Even those who lost could have a handshake as well.
The members also displayed their talents and prowess at Chinese by singing a few of Taiwan’s latest songs: Zhoumi sang Frankie Wong’s [只要你快樂 Only If You’re Happy], Kyuhyun performed Jam Hsiao’s [原諒我 Forgive Me] and Ryeowook did a rendition of F.I.R’s [我們的愛 Our Love] amongst other performances. Donghae did a dance version of Jason Mraz’s [I’m Yours], and Hangeng also showed off a solo hiphop routine, eliciting screams from the fangirls downstage.
WTF?! ISU (Lee Soo)?! This is a conspiracy! geez I love their music and it would sucks so much if this was true…
Only Netizens have so called “confirmed” that the male singer in question is MC THE MAX’s lead vocalist Lee Soo. Until the police CONFIRM it, there is currently no concrete evidence that it was him.
Article # 1
On December 5th, 2009, four people were arrested for running a prostitution ring with underage girls and keeping all profits. But because the girls received no money at all, they’re technically not underage prostitutes but victims. All of the identities are being held anonymous and only the leader’s last name “Yim” (22) was revealed at this time.
Since March, Yim and his 3 partners have been gaining clients and providing them with the services of Girl/Victim A (16) via internet messaging. It turns out that Girl A has had sex with over 200 men and all money paid by the clients were given to Yim. It’s been estimated that he has profited roughly about $30,000 and his excuse for not giving the girl any compensation was “because he had to drive her to the client’s home and back to hers.”
Girl A’s friend, Girl/Victim B (16), was also caught up in the business and has gone through the same exact process or rather horror.
After digging into Girl A’s phone history, it was revealed that one of the clientele was a male celebrity. Not just that but he is also part of an idol group. That’s not good news and the police have yet to release the idol’s name, but they say the idol has received a notice of summons.
Girl A confessed, “Since February of last year, I have had intercourse with the ‘idol’ located in Jong Roh Gu three times for 300 dollars each.”
LOL the boys better run for them lives!
Rain finally replies to the story about MBLAQ being ignored for three days after refusing his offer to eat.
MBLAQ’s part is at 4:16
“It’s a story without evidence. I’m returning to Korea soon. I’ll see you in the practice room~”
This is baaaad~ Bigeastation is a radio show DBSK hosts in Japan for i don’t even know how long and now it’s ending…
Changmin and Yunho said that bigeastation is going to end at the end of the year 2009.
Both of them said in the radio that they are really sad. “It is sad, sad.” they said.
The two revealed that they did not think they could go on for this long, and their Japanese was bad at the beginning of the program. They said that lots of thoughts went though their mind, but the radio would go on until the end of this year so they will do their best.
The year 2009 can be referred as ‘Girl Groups Year’. The girls from SNSD to the newly formed girl groups had been really active in performances, dramas, movies and others. Let’s analyze these girl groups’ characteristics and the charm icon representative.
>Popularity that never changed
When SNSD debuted, between the 9 girls, only a few members were well-known. This year, each and everyone of them had successfully shaped their individual image of their personality in many variety shows.
This year the most active member is of course, Jessica. She has the arrogant and cool image. With that, she was given a nickname, “ice princess”. She had gain her non-stop popularity by participating in MBC “Infinite Challenge – Double Olympic Boulevard song festival”, and her duet with Park Myung Soo (Naeng Myun – Cold Noodles). Among the 9 members, Jessica’s charms lies on her talent in singing and her bright voice. Her nickname really suits her well. Her fans said that the cool look is what makes her attractive.
The MBLAQ boys danced to their single Oh Yeah along with Super Junior members Shin Dong, Leeteuk, and Eunhyuk.Thunder rap to his sister’s (Sandara Park) part from 2NE1′s hit single Fire. They even made Thunder rap to his sister’s (Sandara Park) part from 2NE1′s hit single Fire.
Everyone of them chose their kind of glasses carefully, no wonder why they all look great in their preferred ones! (except maybe Seung Hun’s because his make him looks kinda old lol) I personally want Jong Hun’s XD
The girls must be busy and tired these days with the new album at hand. Stay healthy and pretty, girls!
Good news, VIPs!
If you can recall, G-Dragon and Seungri of Big Bang appeared on SBS ‘Strong Heart’ back on October 10th. However, another pair from the popular idol group are expected to grace the show with their presence; this time, they are none other than the vocalists with the killer bods and smiley eyes, Taeyang and Daesung.
While Taeyang is currently promoting his comeback single Wedding Dress on various music programs, Daesung has a busy schedule of his own as a regular on the SBS variety program ‘Family Outing.’ Seeing as Taeyang is the member who is seen the least on variety programs, his appearance on ‘Strong Heart’ is garnering much interest among fans.
When G-Dragon and Seungri participated on the show’s premiere episode, the public learned quite a lot about the two that they did not know of before. For this reason, many people are looking forward to Taeyang and Daesung’s appearance even more.
hmmm…I have doubts but we’ll see how they do. Rainbow’s debut album was really good, though :-)
According to the Japanese website, HMV, the latest girl group from DSP Entertainment, Rainbow, is close to out-selling Korea’s most popular girl group, SNSD in Japan.
Although they only debuted a month ago, Rainbow, has already been receiving much love over seas in Japan. The online website of HMV, which is one of the biggest online album sellers in Japan, has stated that Rainbow has already passed 4minute, 2NE1, T-ara and Kara, and is soon to pass SNSD in album sales. The website also lists Rainbow as, “the 7 skillful girls that practiced all year long to show off all their skills in the upcoming year of 2010.”
HMV released a statement saying, “They’re SNSD‘s new rivals. In Japan, after they debuted, they became number 1 most searched in nearly every portal website.”
This was during their JYP audition, and WooYoung and Goo Hara were both on stage receiving awards from the audition. But BEAST’s DooJoon was also seen as one of the audition-ers in the back of the group photo:
DooJoon is behind them?
I’m glad this is just for a photoshoot because ahem they don’t look really good ahem

MBLAQ was on Starry Night Radio where SNSD’s Sooyoung and 2AM’s Changmin are the hosts. The boys of MBLAQ talked about many things including which SNSD member they would want to get close to.
Sooyoung wanted to know who they wanted to be friends with in SNSD. Translation: She asked for their ideal types hoping they’d all pick her. Sadly for Sooyoung, only one of them did! It’s okay though, she still has a ridiculous amount of fan boys at her side.
Starts at 1:35
Mir chose Sunny
because when he talked to her for a split second on the set of Star Golden Bell, they really hit it off.
Then another member said, “But your ideal type is Taeyeon.” Ouch, our boy Mir got caught in the act of cheating. But it must be true because he blushed as soon as someone said Taeyeon’s name. I bet he was hoping he was sitting at ChinChin Radio instead.
Raina~♥ she’s my favorite in After School now :-D after SoYoung’s gone, this is the only replacement i’d accept ;-)
Netizens have been taking interests in After School new member Raina lately.
Some of her fresh face photos have been uploaded by netizens, and many netizens find Raina pretty without makeup.
ehhh…not really. Taemin’s face is even smaller than a girl’s, that says something all by itself.
U-KISS’ Dongho revealed his look when dressed up as a girl.
In the SBS show “Idol Maknae Rebellion”, Dongho challenged SHINee’s Taemin, whose look as a girl had once been a hot topic, to a battle in order to see who makes the prettier girl.
On that day, a plastic surgeon used the golden ratios of beauty as the basis for her decision, and in the end, Dongho was chosen as the prettier one. As Dongho is now known as a man who is prettier than a woman, the cast of “Idol Maknae Rebellion” exclaimed, “I thought he was a real girl and was very shocked, ” and said, “If he really was a girl, then he would be my ideal type”.

From jaded_skys@LJ’s fan account:
About 300 girls (and a handful of guys) stood outside for about 5 hours today to have a quick look at Geunseok today, and OMFG IT WAS ABSOLUTELY FREEZING. Only about 85 people were allowed to get his signature, but the rest of us crammed into Youngpyo bookstore to watch as other girls got hugs. I really have to mention how awesome the staff/these two women were; they were hardcore organized, really nice, and made sure all presents were given to the proper people.

I love their style/ the purple-ish background color! It’s so much better than pink or something…
Gosh these netizens…sharp eyes and so quick to judge everything @_@
Today, k-netizen raised an issue of whether the participant from the popular variety talkshow “Strong Heart” was doing their recording under an influence?
The reason for this question is because a bottle of Soju was caught k-netizen’s eyes as it’s made its appearance behind the seat of one of the show participant.
This incident was from November 17 “Strong Heart” broadcast in which k-netizen caught a glimpse of a soju bottle behind one of the participant’s seat.
The k-netizen also expressed their thoughts and say that it’s difficult to understand why there’s such bottle at the show.
