►►2PM’s Taecyeon delayed Family Outing confirmation because of Jaebum

Male group 2PM’s Taecyeon has confirmed his casting for SBS’s Family Outing 2 and will soon be going into recording.

It’s been found that the production team for Family Outing 2 had Taecyeon on their cast list earlier than known. But why was the confirmation so delayed?

When so many different celebrities came out with their confirmations, the reason Taecyeon couldn’t was because of his leader Park Jaebum’s leave to America, which put a halt to all of their personal activities.

Last year, 2PM’s Jaebum was swept in controversy and left for America. The members did not participate in any personal activities except their MC’ing positions in Inkigayo, which was contracted earlier.

People are saying that JYP Entertainment had a hard time with the decision in Taecyeon participating in Family Outing 2. The production team of Family Outing 2 were just as careful.

However, the company has decided that the members can no longer not participate in personal activities and will be using Taecyeon as their stepping stone to increasing the activities of the rest of the members.

An associate stated “Taecyeon’s FO2 casting was something that his agency and the production team were both extremely careful about. However, since the confirmation is out, both sides will be working harder to reap the best results.”

The production team stated “Taecyeon will be taking off his image as a beastly idol and will be reaching the viewers with a friendlier image.”

►►DBSK’s Jaejoong spotted in Vancouver with SS501′s Kim Hyun Joong?

EDIT: the rumor is true! go HERE for pics!

I wouldn’t be surprised. These two are like besties ^^

Earlier this week, Casseiopeian fans scuffed up a storm of rumors that TVXQ’s Jaejoong had flown to Canada for a photoshoot. Although earlier photos believed to be taken in Vancouver turned out to actually be photos from Incheon a few days before, a scattered number of Canadians have produced fan reports of catching a glimpse of the idol out and about a few times. Well, it turns out that Jaejoong didn’t take this trip alone!

No photographic evidence or official report has been released yet, but fan reports reveal that BFF Hyun Joong of SS501 was spotted having a meal and a few drinks with Jaejoong in Vancouver on January 8. Others speculate that Hyun Joong & Jaejoong have traveled together as part of a documentary project, but DSP Entertainment and SM Entertainment have yet to confirm this. Furthermore, rumors indicate that 2Joong only stopped in Vancouver and have already flown to their final destinatio, Toronto.

But until we get some type of verification… pics or it didn’t happen!

►►Jang Geun Suk to hold a fan meeting on January 31st

I read the news on Nate myself and it says there will be 3,000 lucky fans (fan girls I think) permitted to enter :-)

Actor Jang Geun-Suk’s fan meeting in Korea is coming up (Jan 31, 2010). It is being reported that many fans from all over Asia is coming to Korea already to prepare and join the fan meeting. This is surprising because Jang Geun-Suk never had any official activities in countries such as China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

Regarding the fan meeting status and updates, Jang Geun-Suk’s management company commented, “There are many letters and gifts coming from fans all over the place for Jang Geun-Suk. He carefully reads and opens every one of them during his breaks. Some fans have written in Korean but many others didn’t. Therefore Jang Geun-Suk is very motivated to learn new languages and he is actually studying hard to do so.”

“More fans have requested to participated in the fan meeting, in multiples than what was expected and therefore we had to change the location of it several times in order to accomodate more fans. Jang Geun-Suk is looking forward to it and currently he is working hard to make preparations for the meeting.”

The fan meeting will be held at Seoul Olympic Park Olymic Hall at Jan. 31st 2PM.

►►[VIDs] Family Outing parodies “Bo Peep Bo Peep” and “Heartbeat”!

This will knock your socks off because of laughter!!! just look at these poor guys (*Daesung* ahem) in skirts and all XD

The seven original members of SBS Family Outing and two guests, Jo Han Sun and Kim Sung Soo, parodied T-ara’s ‘Bo Peep Bo Peep’ and 2PM’s ‘Heartbeat’.

The first team was made up of Big Bang’s Daesung, Jo Han Sun, Yoon Jong Shin and Kim Soo Ro. With colorful wigs and mini skirts, they performed a hilarious parody of T-ara’s ‘Bo Peep Bo Peep’ that had me rolling on the floor, laughing! I have to say, the highlight of their performance was Daesung’s solo dance.

The next team was made up of Park Hae Jin, Yoo Jae Suk, Kim Sung Soo and Kim Jong Gook. Their performance was none other than the parody of 2PM’s ‘Heartbeat’. Interestingly, they used the recording from the SBS Gayo Daejun’s girl group performance by KARA, After School and 4Minute, which made the performance even better.

►►Actress Seo Hyo Rim chooses 2PM’s Junho before Nickhun he is less popular

Sadly, I have the same feelings (kind of) when my fave memberTaecyeon just appears EVERYWHERE these days…

Actress Seo HyoRim picked Junho from 2PM as her ideal guy.

HyoRim did an Ideal Type World Cup along with the 2pm members on KBS 2TV’s YunyegaJunggye.

She picked Nichkhun and Junho as the final 2, and enjoyed their individual skills, where Junho did an Andre Kim impression and Nichkhun did a surprising killer wink to match the game.

Seo HyoRim picked finally Junho as the winner. She said, “I liked Nichkhun for a long time but it seems like he has alot of popularity these days” which frustrated Junho alot.

Younha started the year on a bad note, fainting on New Year’s Day. She had to take time for recovery and canceled her appearances on music programs for a week, even though she just released a new song Broke Up Today.

She had a great performance on Inkigayo today, but what you didn’t get to see was what happened afterwards.

Younha fainted again after her performance and is back at the hospital. She’s definitely spent more time in the hospital than out of it since the year has started. All her schedules have been canceled as of now and she is taking more time off to rest.

►►3 DBSK members to start their solo activities?‏

The 3 TVXQ members first trip together is to prepare for their own activities?

3 TVXQ members who have been in conflict with SM Entertainment regarding exclusive contract issue, Hero Jaejoong, Xiah Junsu, and Micky Yoochun recently took a trip to Australia together.

On the 4th, they went to Sydney Australia to take a break and go for a tour to popular tourist attractions in entire city including the Opera House, before coming back on the 7th.

This is the first time these three people went on vacation after the lawsuit regardless the schedule from SM Entertainment.

The three TVXQ members refrained that they had their actual solo activities through the latest traveling of theirs, saying that they just went for a re-charge and also to set up some plans for the upcoming activities in this new year.

However, the trip that was supposed to be enjoyable for the TVXQ members was getting a bit inconvinient as their fans kept gathering on the spots they went after the news of them going to Sydney spread.

According to officials, even just after Junsu, Jaejoong, and Yoochun arrived at Sydney airport, there had always been a long line of fans following them even to hotel.

Regarding this trip to Sydney, some people argued that this was made for a pictorial photography. The evidence was a photography camera that was spotted when they arrived at airport, also couple of pictures taken by fans and spread through internet about a photoshoot that was taken on a boat with famous Sydney Harbor Bridge as the background.

Yet the 3 TVXQ members representative explained, “It was a pure vacation, there wasn’t any other purpose.” he continued, “The members going to Sydney Australia is also no more than this one time.”

Meanwhile, while the music career of 3 TVXQ members laid off for a while, it’s expected that they will start active again in near future through acting.

According to 3 members TVXQ acquaintance, currently the 3 members have received proposals to appear in drama and movies. There are already some request for them from drama and film production company, and now the members are in process of selecting scenarios, scripts, and many others.

Xiah Junsu himself will raise up stage for musical ‘Mozart!’ at Sejong Cultural Centre, Seoul and his final appearance will show off on February 20th.
