►►New boy group D-NA strives to be the next DBSK

It’s a long shot but what do ya got to lose? haha good luck to the D-NA boys :-)

Back when Dae Guk Nam Ah (D-NA) was revealed back in January, people were already linking the newbie male group to the practically legendary TVXQ. After all, with the five-man group’s a cappella cover and image, the comparison were practically inevitable. Furthermore, the fact that D-NA is already being targeted at an international audience (their overseas name is officially BOSS, the Boys of Super Space… yeah, I don’t get it either), similar to TVXQ’s venture into Japan.

It’s been previously stated that D-NA has acknowledged TVXQ as role models. It’s definitely quite a feat for anyone to achieve the success that TVXQ has enjoyed over the past few years, but the members of D-NA are determined to succeed as well. On March 15, the boys talked about being compared to the ever-popular quintet.

“All of us watched TVXQ as we grew up, and have had the dream to become singers some day,” Jay expressed. “TVXQ is more than just an idol group. … We don’t know if we’ll be able to sing and dance like them. Whenever we see them, we realize that we have a long way until we can try to be close to them.”

Members Mika and Hyonmin received gold medals at a singing competition in Seoul back in 2007. Furthermore, Garam and In Joon have won competitions in their respective cities as well.

After people began to call D-NA the next TVXQ, the rookies also received backlash by others who reprimanded them for making such a comparison. “TVXQ is like a giant mountain that casts a giant shadow,” Hyonmin said. “And rather than crossing over that mountain, I wish that our group would be right behind them.“

Dang this sounds so legit! Jaebum’s fans definitely have a lot of love for him :3

An album produced by fans for Jaebum, a member of 2PM who recently permanantly resigned from the group, has gone into countdown until the day it will be released for sale.

Since the month of January, after establishing a community called ‘Album Production for Park Jaebum’, Jaebum fans have had song/music compositions, selected vocals and rappers, recorded (the songs), and even paid for all the costs after an online distribution.

The title for Jaebum’s album was decided to be called “With All My Heart” and the title song of the album was concluded to be “You are my Heart”, with the following “For You” and “One Step At a Time”, making a total of three songs on the album. The whole album was produced, composed, and sung by fans themselves – 4 producers/composers, 5 vocals, and 2 rappers.

The album could be released anyday now since it is up to the fans, but it was decided that it will be released on the 27th, the 200th day since Jaebum had left. Fans have also decided that if profits were to be made, it will be spent on donations to Haiti and other good deeds.

After the offline album is released, there will be a limit of 100 copies made. Fans will be dividing the 100 copies as: 10-20 copies for Jaebum and his closest in Seattle, and the rest of the copies will be distributed to the staff who contributed to the making of the album and the members of the community(Album Production for Park Jaebum).

On March 15th, the final solo photo teasers to SNSD’s new concept “Black Soshi” are released, showing YoonA’s and Tiffany’s. To be honest, so far I love Hyoyeon’s best. It gives a really big change to such an underrated member in SNSD so I’m totally rooting for her!

►►After School reveals comeback photo teaser…with 8 members!

As of now, After School is stil officially known as a 7-member girl group. But on the 15th, After School’s official website published a picture to mark their upcoming comeback. And in the photo, there are not seven but eight members.

One of the members is putting her head down and not revealing her identity fully. People are now guessing that a new member will join the group.

Thousands and thousands of fans were left clueless, excited and confused about this picture. If it does indeed mean another member will join, this will definitely make After School the most member changing group ever. I mean first UEE joins, then Soyoung leaves, then Raina and Nana join and now another?

Their third single will be released on the 25th.

►►SNSD’s fans clarify misunderstandings with Jaebum’s fans

Because of an incident during a concert during White Day (March 14th), there has been a controversy between fanclubs.

↑ lol sorry but this image made me crack up XD (I made it by the way keke)

T/N Clarification: The reason SONE’s are apologizing for saying Jaebum’s name was because a few people acting like they were SONE’s began spreading rumors saying that Jaebum’s personal fans threw those glow sticks at SNSD. However, various accounts from SONE’s prove that they were just 6PM fans, specifically Taecyeon fans.]

Here is the scandalous notes between the  SONEs about the problem that these ‘fake SONEs’ created:

[SONE] We need to throw eggs at 6PM or something now…

It’s so frustrating lately.
Jang Wooyoung + Tiffany scandal… Ok Taecyeon + Yoona scandal…
The crazy 6PM fans got so shocked with those scandals and threw glow sticks at SNSD!
The 6PM fans that threw glow sticks at SNSD…
I think it was too harsh to just be passive about.
It’s so disgusting, I sincerely hope that SNSD is no longer linked with 6PM anymore.
When will 6PM fans wake up to reality… I know that there aren’t many 6PM fans left…
But they’re really trying their hardest till the end, aren’t they?
We really need to show them something so they won’t do it ever again.
Maybe eggs…

Comment: We’d like to do that but we’d get the same treatment that those dogPM fans are getting. It’s better to just get evidence and give it to the journalists so that they will write articles saying ‘same crappy artist, same crappy fan.’

So the real SONEs had to apologize:

[SONE] We would like to apologize.

►►JYPE speaks up about Taecyeon’s scandal, “He only wanted to encourage fans”

I don’t believe that Taecyeon has this little fans…with his face everywhere on screen? yea, I don’t think so :/

On the 5th, Taecyeon had written on his fancafe, “It’s a new start, shall we do this together?” Fans were angered with the post, interpreting it as Taecyeon wanting to start 2PM promotions with a fresh start, without Jaebum.

Regarding this, a JYP Entertainment associate stated, “The fancafe that Taecyeon has left a message on is only of the only fancafes left that still encourages him despite many other fancafes that have deleted themselves. He left a message as a gesture of thanks to his fans.”

Info about the fancafe Taecyeon posted on:

The truth about “A Killing Smile”. It is a dying cafe. Many members have already left the cafe. A Killing Smile existed before Taecyeon was a part of 2PM but they have no drive (to do activities). The cafe has nothing to show other than a few posts Taecyeon wrote. They never did anything for his birthday. In comparison, their drive is considerably less than Park Jaebum’s ‘Be the Top’ cafe (with 100K members).

That’s what ‘AKS’ is. Although it’s blocked now, it’s a place where all you had to do was write your nickname and an introduction post and you were leveled up immediately.

The cafe admins didn’t have drive either (not even to close it properly). They forgot Taecyeon’s birthday until a month later. They never did present/supports until someone had to suggest it. Despite it all, he always left a post for them whenever he left for America.

It is said that it was just Taec’s attempt at earning sympathy from the last existing cafe for him.

A Killing Smile has 6k members.

►►Fan letters and gifts for ZE:A found in the trash

To be honest, I can’t blame the boys for throwing things away because you only have so much space to live in (not to mention the fact that their company Star Empire is pretty cheap)…besides, who knows if it’s really them who threw these fan gifts out :/

Fan letters and gifts thrown in the trash have caused controversy for boy group ZE:A.

A citizen living near the group’s dorm had this to say, “There were the fan letters and gifts in the trash. The letters looked as if they were not even opened. Some of the packages simply had the gifts inside taken out and then tossed.

After seeing the pictures netizens commented, “It looks like there is a problem with young idols these days” and “Throwing away letters fans had worked hard on is a bit too much.”

This news has become a hot topic on net portals and on the 14th, the management of the group gave this statement to fan cafes, “ZE:A loves and appreciates its fans very much. Management and the group try to read all the letters they can. Currently the group has been very busy with its schedule and preparing for the new album. We believe that in the groups absence a cleaning crew came into the dorm and threw the letters and gifts out. We apologize for this situation and will make sure it does not happen again.”
