►►Fans appreciate SBS Inkigayo for reserving a Jaebum spot



2PM fans are expressing their gratitude to the producers of this weeks SBS Inkigayo, where 2PM held their goodbye stage.

On January 17th, 2PM finished up promotions for their 1st album and performed two tracks, “Tired of Waiting (기다리다 지친다)” and “Heartbeat.” During the intro, prior to their final performances, SBS put the image displayed above and left a blank white spot for leader Jaebeom.

In addition to SBS leaving a space for Jaebeom, the 2PM members themselves left a space in the middle for their leader as well. Fans were really able to feel the love for Jaebeom as they chanted loudly, ‘We’ll be waiting Park Jaebeom. We’ll be waiting 2PM.”

After the show, fans expressed their gratitude:

“Inkigayo thank you so much. Only Inkigayo! PD we love you. We were extremely impressed (heart warming). We won’t forget how you took care of us, thank you.”

It was a great way for 2PM to close out their promotions. I have a feeling there’s going to be quite a big surprise for fans when they return.

Fans also created a new fan chant to include Jaebum ^^

►►Suju Kyuhyun’s Pasta OST “Listen..to you” is a remake of F.Cuz LeeU’s song?


This song is so lovely♥ I’m glad Kyuhyun was the one who did the remake cause he did a fantastic job (his version is a bit more lively and happy whereas LeeU’s has a bit more melancholy feel to it..in a good way of course) ! Both are my faves from Suju and F.Cuz too keke

F.Cuz’s LeeU got a chance to be part of the OST for 2008 SBS drama “Gourmet”. At that time, he was 19-years-old and he sang Listen to You. He showed off this great vocals though he wasn’t a debuted singer at the time.

Now, two years later, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun is singing in a remix of his hubae’s original track. For the new MBC drama Pasta, he sings Listening… to that person (듣죠… 그대를).

Fans have been commenting, “I knew Kyuhyun could sing but I did not know LeeU could sing so well,” and “It’s the same song but they both have different sounds.”

Netizens have also created a version where they can hear LeeU’s voice through the left speaker and Kyuhyun’s on the right. LeeU said, “It was my first solo song so I was really nervous. Kyuhyun sunbaenim pulled it off very well!”

►►F.CUZ’s Jinon looks like actor Kwon Sang Woo? “It’s an overpraise”


OMG I never noticed this!!! They really do look alike lol! This kinda reminds me of when T-ara’s JiYeon was told that she looks like Kim Tae Hee and she also responded “oh no…” ;-)

JinOn, the leader of rookie group F.cuz, has been attracting attention due to his appearance and features which resemble Kwon Sang Woo.

F.cuz is famous because one of the members, LeeU, is actually the son of Sul Woon Do. F.cuz made their debut on KBS Music Bank with their title track ‘JIGGY’ on 8 Jan.

JinOn, who graduated from AhnYang School of Arts, was a member of the initial Cho Shin Sung prior to his debut in F.cuz. F.cuz was formed with JinOn as the pivotal character. Subsequently, YeJun and Kan – whom JinOn observed on a regular basis as they are his juniors in High School – also entered the group.

The fans often send compliments to JinOn saying that “You resembled Kwon Sang Woo.” In relation to this, JinOn, who met the reporters on 15 Jan at the backstage of Music Bank, said shyly, “There are fans who tell me things like this. It’s an excessive compliment.”

“In order to not be a burden to Kwon Sang Woo-sunbaenim, I will work even harder. Please watch over the my growth and development from now on, ” he entreated.

JinOn’s group, F.CUZ, has been taking pride in being called ‘Model Idols’ for their refined fashion sense.

►►ZE:A give their debut performance a 3 out of 10


That’s quite a downer…I thought it was good, not great, but good enough for a debut stage (like a 5 out of 10 at LEAST). Too humble maybe? or it’s just the song choice I guess…I hope they’ll promote either Love Coach or New Star later. Those are two awesome songs :-D

The rookie male group just finished up their debut performances of the music programs, Music Bank and Inkigayo. Though I thought they did fairly well for a rookie group, they were left dissatisfied.

After their first performance they were asked, “What score do you give your first performance?” They answered, “Around 3 points out of 10.” When they were asked why they scored themselves so low they said, “We have a goal. From now on, we will run towards that goal to fill up those 7 points.”

►►HyunA, “4Minute members watch and criticize me honestly; watch for JiYoon’s solo soon!”


OMG srsly I can’t wait for JiYoon’s solo >.< hehe I hope it’s good cause I’m putting up high hopes for her!

4minute’s HyunA expressed her thanks toward her members for their support on her solo activities.

In a recent interview she said, “My members watch every performance I do. They are very straightforward and honest with their advice so it’s very helpful. I used to perform with my members but since I’m up on stage alone, I have a lot of weak spots. Because of this, I practice a lot harder. My members even watch my practice and sometimes practice with me.”

She also talked about member Jiyoon’s upcoming solo song. She said, “Jiyoon unnie’s solo project has a very different style than mine. It’s very cool. It wouldn’t be bad thing to get your hopes up.”

►►MBLAQ’s Cyworlds: Mir updates about his hometown trip~ 01/18/10


Mir has such a good relationship with his dad♥


After those emotional entries about missing his father and home, Mir finally got a chance to go back to the old farm!
And he brought along some city boys….

[Cyworld] 2010.01.18 at 03:10
In what seems like a hundred years, I went to my hometown.
Although we arrived at dawn, my energy boost was high.
When I saw my dad, my eyes were wide with emotion.
When I used to live in my hometown my dad would never turn on the boiler because of the expenses
but because I said Jjoonie hyung and Chundoong hyung were coming down as well he turned on the boiler.
I was so happy.
But still it was so cold that Jjoonie hyung, Chundoong hyung and I were hugging each other.
We thought our mouths were going around.
The next day we went to the country town and shopped, went to school, worked, and even rode sleds.
I was so happy
Someone kept saying to me that I was their third cousin and kept asking for a sign.
Although I signed I don’t remember.
I only know up to my cousins sorry.
Anyways I was so happy that I went to my hometown in a long time.
If there is a chance I want to go to another village and play too.
Good Night.

►►F.CUZ’s Kan and LeeU got injured during dance practice


Not long after the news of F.Cuz getting down with sickness before their official debut date, two members got injured..I feel bad for these boys :-(

Despite having suffered an injury to his left ankle, Kan from ‘Model Idol’ F.cuz showed his fighting spirit by using crutches and going up on stage.

On the afternoon of 15 Jan, F.cuz completed their stage performance on KBS Music Bank and attended the dance rehearsal for the remix version of their song in the practice room. During rehearsal, Kan got injured as he overstretched the ligament while turning his left ankle for a tumbling practice. The other member, LeeU, also sustained an injury to his right little toe.

The remix version of F.CUZ’s song will add acrobatics to the existing dance moves, and this increased the level of difficulty by another notch. The enthusiasm of the members grew, which has indirectly led to the injuries.

“Kan was immediately sent to the hospital and had to use crutches. As his ankle was very very swollen, we had to let him use the crutches,” a spokesperson of F.CUZ mentioned during a phonecall with Newsen.

However, the biggest problem lies in their schedule. This is because F.CUZ, who has officially started their activities for debut song ‘JIGGY’, was scheduled to perform on Show! Music Core and SBS Inkigayo on 16th and 17th respectively.
