►►After School’s UEE was strict towards new members Raina and Nana?


After School’s leader Kahi revealed that UEE isn’t just a dirty girl but also a strict one.

Kahi revealed, “I’m the leader but it seems like UEE is the scary one,” on Strong Heart, a statement that took many people by surprise. When you look at UEE, you don’t wouldn’t imagine a scary individual who would whip your ass.

Kahi said, “Not long ago, we got new members. One day, UEE was watching them practice and she called them out to a different room. I don’t know what happened but the next day, the two new members seemed self-conscious.”

The dance team was present during the talk between UEE, Raina and Nana, so Kahi eventually heard about the story. The idol continued on to explain what really went down Strong Heart. After hearing the full story the other guests on the show said, “Wow, UEE is nothing like I expected.”

To find out about what really happened between UEE, Raina and Nana, stay tuned for the episode which airs on February 9th.

►►DBSK to release a movie theme song “With All My Heart~” on January 17th


A ballad? Just perfect for their voices ^0^

It became clear on the 8th that TVXQ will be in charge of a theme song of the movie “Kimiga Odoru Natsu” (*Meaning,”Summer Dancing You”), a lead actor will be Junpei Yokomizo (20).

The title music is “With All My Heart~君が踊る、夏”, which is recorded in TVXQ’s new best album “BEST SELECTION 2010″ that will be released in Japan on the 17th. This gem song with the piano ballad will heap up an impressive product of this film which portraits the maturing period of youths.

The festival featured in the movie has thick pastime that gives poetic charm, portrayed in the summer of Kochi (prefecture in Japan) is the stage. It is a story the young man of the lead character struggles with a fighting spirit with their friend; for a girl living toward the dream to dance at a festival while having an intractable disease.

The movie producer Shun Arikawa who is a great fan of TVXQ from their debut in Japan in 2005, sent them a love call last November to seek them, “To sing the wonderful theme song which matches in a story of the dream that youths lost and the broken friendship to be regenerated.”

Arikawa said that he thought that, “Only TVXQ who continue to charm Asian youths are able to stream down courage and hope through their song and dance!”; from the very beginning when he decided to film this movie after observing a Yosakoi festival for the first time.

The offer was sent when three members were opposed over a contract dispute issue with their office in Korea and when media was paying attention toward their future activities. In addition, it was the time when it was very busy for them with TV program collecting of the end of the year programs in those days. However, the five members were touched by the enthusiasm of Arikawa and willingly consented to his offer.

►►SHINee visits and hands out gifts at a Japanese orphanage


Being the nice daddies on “Hello Baby!” must have inspired these boys to show their love for kids even more ^^

On February 6th, boy group SHINee performed at the K-POP Festival in Sapporo, Japan. The next day, the angelic boys decided to visit an orphanage in the city and put smiles on the little kids’ faces.

They gifted the children with shirts that had Korean on it, Korean snacks and Korean stuffed animals. I guess the purpose was to introduce Korean culture to the boys and girls.

SHINee and the 60 children split up into teams and played games. The children even performed for SHINee. With Sapporo TV recording every minute of this event, the boys received much kudos from the Japanese fans.

SHINee said, “It was for a short period of time but we made a lot of memories in Sapporo. Meeting these children made this trip more meaningful. If we get the chance to, we want to visit Sapporo again.”

►►Hyoyeon reveals SNSD’s dating rule, “Can’t keep it a secret between members”


LOL Tiffany “2PM’s Taecyeon has really big ears”~~ and I doubt any of these girls are gonna get a boy anytime soon =.=;

In KBS 2TV’s “Sweet Night” which aired February 7th, SNSD had their Ideal World Cup.

Hyoyeon stated, “We have a specific rule for dating in SNSD. Even if we get a boyfriend, we can’t keep it a secret between each other.” As many questioned about the rule, she included, “By giving each other information, we won’t have to overlap crushes.”

SNSD members have a war when it comes to male celebrities not just in real life, but in dreams as well. Jessica mentioned, “I recently had a dream about Go Soo, and had an argument with Sooyoung (who likes Go Soo).”

In addition, Yuri caused the studio to burst out in laughter by saying, “Since we have a lot of members, we can’t like the same people. We even have to get permission to dream about them.”

On a side note, Tiffany, while looking at Taecyeon(2PM)’s picture from when he was young, mentioned that his ears are big. She said, “I still only see his ears when I’m watching him perform.”

►►G-Dragon, “President Yang has psychic powers; ‘Lies’ became a hit because of it”


I get amazed at all of these Korean producers like JYP and Yang Hyun Suk (not so much about SM because I still believe he’s not a producer but more like a really really good manager) because they really know what they’re doing!

So once YG Entertainment’s President Yang Hyun Seok decided the song G-Dragon had written for himself, ‘Lies’ would be used as a Big Bang song, G-Dragon started to rewrite it for the group.

”I felt so weak knowing I had to rewrite it from the beginning. Still, I did it and showed the other members, worried about whether they’d like it or not. It was a lot different to the music we’d done til then so at first the members just looked really blank after hearing it. I was sitting there quietly thinking ‘They don’t like it? Oh well I can’t do anything about that. Then Taeyang said ‘Let’s do it!’”

G-Dragon still doesn’t know what emotions the other members felt at the time. Just the fact that he was letting them hear a song he had written for his own solo made him nervous. In other words, he was worried about what the other members might think of the piece he had written based on his own taste.

”I was nervous. Of letting them hear… But after editing the lyrics and giving it to them so they could work out their own parts, things unravelled nicely. Our President is a pro. If he tells us we should release something at a particular time or something, it always gives us the best possible results.”

G-Dragon would write countless songs and President Yang would listen and choose the best. President Yang was usually more like an easy-going neighbourhood hyung or uncle but when it came to work he had the best ear for music and trends.

I think HyunSeok hyung has psychic powers. (laughs) After listening to a bunch of songs, he’ll just sit there without a word, rolling his eyes once in a while and he’ll decide not only what songs to use but when to release them too. If I send him all the songs I’ve written, he cuts them down. Sometimes he doesn’t even listen to a song for a second. Rather than calculating it, he sort of just goes ‘No not this’ or ‘I have a good feeling about this one’. Every song he’s said he has a ‘good feeling about’ has been a huge hit’. It’s really scary and constantly makes me wonder ‘What’s with this person??’”

►►Jo Kwon and Ga In finished filming their first kiss scene on “We Got Married”


I’m still wondering how ‘real’ their relationship is gonna become..

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Jo Kwon and GaIn attempted their first nervous kiss scene.

Recently on MBC We Got Married, 2AM was featured filming the MV for their new song ‘Even If I Die, I will not let you go’, Jo Kwon filmed a kiss scene with GaIn.

In front of his other 2AM members, Jo Kwon shows a strong manly image as the ‘beastly husband’ and called GaIn to the filming set. At first when GaIn heard about the kiss scene for the MV, she was doubtful but then she received the go-ahead and got all ready to be the female lead in the MV.

And with the 2AM members and even the MV director’s working together, the kiss scene was filmed.

The show is set to air on 6th February.

►►2AM signed on for Pepsi Cola, going against 2PM’s Coca Cola?


The Cola war is on!

The brother groups of JYP Entertainment, 2PM and 2AM, have become the blue chip of the advertisement world. Advertisements for cola have been known to pick only the hottest stars for their models.

On the 8th, an associate stated that 2AM has recently signed on to a contract with Pepsi Cola. There have also been rumors that since Coca Cola, a rival company, held 2PM as their model, they, too, have decided to use their brother group 2AM for their own. This associate stated, “They will be going into recording within this week. We’ll be able to see their advertisements around mid March.”

2PM has already finished their recording at the end of January with a one year contract. 2PM’s advertisements will go on air towards the mid, or end of this month. The two brother groups have been attracting attention as to who will receive the most love.

Pepsi and Coca Cola also had a rivalry last year, using the popular stars of ‘Boys Over Flowers,’ Lee Minho and Kim Hyunjoong.

►►SNSD’s Seohyun would rather dream about sweet potatoes than hot guys


That’s my innocent maknae :-D We have so much in common lol (well..except I dream about both :-P)

On today’s episode of Sweet Night, SNSD played a round of Ideal Type World Cup. Though they chose Song Seung Hun as their ultimate type at the end, maknae Seohyun had a different thing on her mind.

SNSD’s Taeyeon revealed Seohyun’s huge love for sweet potatoes. A bit odd, yes. While the members were on the topic of dreaming about hot male celebrities, Seohyun said she’s never dreamed about a guy star when she was asked about it. Then Taeyeon said, “She probably dreams about sweet potatoes.”

The other members chimed in and agreed with Taeyeon’s funny statement. Then they all started to reveal that Seohyun is obsessed with sweet potatoes and has absolutely no interest in guys. Seohyun even chose sweet potatoes over Song Seung Hun!

Taeyeon also talked about how Seohyun packs herself sweet potatoes and eats them like a little hamster. She offers some to the members but she makes a face that reads, I don’t actually want to give this to you.”

►►How did G-Dragon and T.O.P do on SNSD’s Ideal Guy World Cup?


http://c.upanh.com/upload/2/826/ZF0.6906713_1_1.jpg

During the ‘Ideal Type World Cup’ portion of KBS 2TV’s Sweet Night last February 7, G-Dragon and T.O.P were included in the list of ideal guys that members of Girls’ Generation can choose from. They first showed childhood photos of T.O.P and G-Dragon.

T.O.P got 6 points while G-Dragon got 2 points during the first round but when they showed the current photos, G-Dragon won with 5 points. There were only 8 members present so when G-Dragon and DBSK’s Yunho were tied in the Final 8 round, they called in Yoona who chose Yunho. Pictures and video below for the whole thing.

So basically Yunho won against G-Dragon (but G-Dragon won against T.O.P) :-)

►►R&B group 4Men picked SHINee’s JongHyun as best artist to sing their songs


A lot new Kpop lovers may not know about 4Men but I believe they are some of the best ballad/R&B groups out there in Korea (some may even consider these guys as the pioneers of R&B in Korea) that has a long history (that traces as far back as 1998) already. Many artists have covered their song so take this as a huge honor for Jong Hyun ^^

[Interview] DC inside interview: 4men, “Out of all the singers who sang 4men’s music, the Best is SHINee’s Jonghyun”

DC : Out of all the singers who sang 4men’s music, who was the best person to achieve the
Kim Wonjoo: for me, it was SHINee Jonghyun Sshi.
Young Jae: Jonghyun sshi sings a lot of our songs. Actually, we’ve seen him for a short moment at SBS “Chocolate” when YoungHan sshi was featuring, he really sings well.

*Extra: Jonghyun has sang “Baby Baby” on various radio on live, on several TV programs.*

►►4Minute reveals they are close to BEAST and… f(x)


More info about the girls performing in the Philippines this past weekend and some other stuff..

K-pop girl group 4Minute ended their first Philippine tour Sunday after promoting their first mini-album, “For Muzik,” in the Southeast Asian nation where K-pop is gaining popularity.

In Manila, 4Minute held shows in shopping malls, had autograph signing events for fans, and appeared on TV variety programs from February 5 to 7.

The members of the idol group ― Hyun-ah, Ji-hyun, Ji-yoon, So-hyun and Ga-yoon ― met the Philippine press on February 5.

However, besides arriving an hour late for the press conference, the girls were barred by the organizer of the event from answering personal questions, particularly regarding Hyun-ah and her past association with K-pop girl band the Wonder Girls.

On January 22, JYP Entertainment announced that Sun-mi, another member of the Wonder Girls, was quitting the group to resume her studies in South Korea. With Hyun-ah and Sun-mi experiencing similar misfortunes with the Wonder Girls, The Korea Times asked Hyun-ah if she would consider going back to the Wonder Girls if Park Jin-Young, owner of JYP Entertainment, asked her to.

However, even before the interpreter could translate the question, a staff member for the organizer stopped her from answering the question. The press also failed to get Hyun-ah’s reaction on Sun-mi’s decision to quit, when the organizer again prohibited her from responding. (kinda suspicious much? =.=)

The questions 4Minute members did answer were mainly about their diet and lifestyle.

Answering a question from The Korea Times on their health, 4Minute admitted that they are on a special diet to maintain their sexy image as K-pop idols.

But they said they were having a hard time controlling their diet in Manila since they love the food.

When asked about their friends outside the group, 4Minute said they are close to the members of K-pop groups BEAST and f(x).

4Minute and BEAST are managed by Cube Entertainment, an affiliate of JYP Entertainment.

During the Corby color talk show Q&A, members were asked questions such as “Who was Junho’s first kiss” and “What color does Chansung like to wear lately?”

Junho answered, “My first kiss is actually Wooyoung. We had about six NG’s during the recording and so we kissed a couple more times.”

►►T-ara’s “too short” short skirts at V-Star League game spark controversy


I’m in shocked…Korea is so conservative lol..besides, it’s not like they are bare underneath – they wear tights underneath and boots too :/

T-ara performed their hits Bo Peep Bo Peep and Like the First Time at the V-Star League volleyball game presented by Nonghyup Bank.

This was Soyeon’s first performance with the group after recovering from the H1N1 virus. While the girls looked great as always, the appearance was met with some controversy over the sexy dancing and short skirts in a family setting. “The skirts were much too short. They have to think about the families and children coming to this game.” one reporter said.

Now I’m normally not a prude, but after watching the video I would kind of have to agree. They are shaking their asses in the faces of a bunch of kids sitting like two feet away. While I’m sure this won’t permanently warp their young minds and make the kids become sex freaks later, there is such a thing as dressing “event appropriate.” Also, they could have changed the ass/crotch rubbing dance moves in Like the First Time. But then again, at least they remained true to their concept, I’m sure it was the first time the majority of these kids ever saw something so hot, up close and personal.

►►U-KISS, “Out of electricity and met a ghost too…signs of success right?”


“In Japan, most of our fans are mothers. They prefer those who look younger rather than the maturity.” ~~ lol my favorite part, actually.

And I’m not sure about the blackout but meeting a ghost may really mean something lol. SS501’s leader Kim Hyun Joong met a ghost before and he’s really successful now right? haha

Spotted with thick smoky makeup, ‘Man Man Ha Ni’ U-KISS who gained popularity through Kangnam (strong guy) dance returned with their 1st full album. U-KISS title track for this time is called ‘Bingeul Bingeul (Round And Round)’ and has skyrocketed into the #1 spot onto various charts soon after it was released.

U-KISS (Alexander, Kibum, Dongho, Soohyun, Eli, Kevin, Kiseob) is finally dropping out their 1st full album after 1 year and 6 months since they debuted on September 2008. On the recent interview with Newsen, U-KISS said “This 1st album is our blood and sweat”.

“We don’t know anything when we first started recording this full album. Time passed by and because it was the 1st album, we felt like we should do more (for the album). We sought for advices here and there. We thought that there are lots of things to be accomplished.”

“This (album) is very important after ‘Man Man Ha Ni’. I know that we can do better this time around” U-KISS explained with strong determination.

“The electricity continuously went out when we were shooting the music video. Things happened for a reason. It was because the electricity power supply was too weak but we like to take it as a sign of success. Then, a couple of days ago, we saw a male ghost in the practice room. We were practicing late at night when suddenly the practice room’s door opened and we heard a screaming voice before the door closed. Eli and Soohyun saw a dark shadow. At first we thought that it was manager hyung. But it wasn’t.”
