►►Rain acknowledges 2PM’s Taecyeon as his beastly junior

The ‘original beastly male’ Rain acknowledged his junior beastly male 2PM’s Taeceon.

Handsome with a chiseled body and even a wild feel, Rain participated in SBS’s music program ‘Inkigayo.’

Before he went on stage to sing his new special album’s title track, ‘The Song That’ll Hold You Back,’ he appeared in the MC’s corner and held a conversation with ‘Inkigayo MC’s 2PM Taecyeon and Junho, along with f(x)’s Sulli.

After introducing his new ballad song, Junho asked him, “Rain sunbae, you are the original beastly male. Do you see any possibility of Taecyeon being a beastly male, too?”

Rain brightly smiled and patted Taecyeon’s back while answering, “Nobody can copy the way Taecyeon rips his clothes,” complimenting Taecyeon as his charismatic beastly junior. Taecyeon bowed in respect and thankfulness at Rain’s compliment.

Rain even gave a word of advice when Sulli asked, “Will we be able to become a world star too?” answering, “As long as you guys work together and do your best.”

►►Best comments regarding 2PM Taecyeon’s multi-entertainer career

I’ve come to realized how much netizens, Korean or not, hate Taecyeon these days…let’s take a look at the comments netizens make out him as a respond to this article “2PM’s Taecyeon, a singer with the greatest popularity but rejected as a variety star. What about his acting?”:
↑ with the cast of “Cinderella’s sister”

1. 1,306 clicks of agreement

It’s all fake. He comes out on Win Win and complains about struggling because of the rumors regarding him and Yoona, but he’s the one that said rumors disappear regarding Jaebum. He’s not even that amazing of a singer. What kind of a singer goes and lashes out his fans criticizing his singing? He sarcastically replied to them saying that he’s a rapper, but thanks for telling him to practice singing anyway? I’m just going to watch the drama with Kim Soyeon in it. Sorry to Moon Geunyoung and Chun Jungmyung!

Comments of the comment:
– I’m just going to watch the drama with Lee Minho and Son Yejin.
– Of course, his rumor, he’s suffering.. but his friend’s rumor, he doesn’t care since it disappears, right?

2. 1,205 clicks of agreement

Just send his character to study overseas around the 3rd or 4th episode so I can just watch the drama in peace.

Comment of the comment:
– The PD will probably just kill him off anyway. Isn’t there a car crash in the script?

3. 1,157 clicks of agreement

His career as a singer is now fckin fail.
His variety show was already fckin fail.
Now his acting drama will be fckin fail.

Comments of the comment:
– Wow, you’re a better rapper than Ok Taecyeon, you should become a rapper too!
– Your rhyme is better than Taecyeon.
– Taecyeon, you should learn to rap at least as good as this netizen.


All I can say is – OUCH.

►►[PICs] Netizens compile graduation photos of pretty boy idols

A compliation of graduation photos of pretty boys from idol groups and their current photos put together side-by-side are circulating quickly around internet portal sites in Korea.

From Super Junior’s Kim Heechul to Big Bang’s G-Dragon and T.O.P. to SS501’s Kim Hyung Joong to TVXQ’s Jaejoong, the photos are gathering attention for capturing the individual idol’s youthful and natural image.

Netizens’ comments included, “The photos of members who look very different from different are particularly fun” and “I can distinguish which ones were the model students.”


►►[PICs + VID] 2PM Taecyeon’s drama “Cinderella’s Sister” releases its teaser

The 20-episode drama, Cinderella’s Sister (신데렐라 언니) stars Moon Geun Young, Seo Woo, Chun Jung Myung, and 2PM’s Taecyeon. It is due to air on KBS2 on 31 March 2010.

Once again, the beastly guy did not fail to take his shirt off :/


►►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.

►►2PM Taecyeon’s desire for a “new start” cause tensions among fans

I feel bad for 2PM members now…everything they do or say – no matter how small- could be used against this argument for Jaebum! It’s really unfair and I don’t think they have much of a choice :/

On the 5th of March, A capturing of Taecyeon’s written message on his own cafe site, “It is a new start, should we do it together?” has been circulating around a community site and has made a big impact.

The fans have made cold comments such as “Is this really what Taecyeon has written?”, “It’s scary to the point of giving me goosebumps”, “It feels like 6PM is living on and quitting as an internet group”.

After the JYP fan conference, 2PM fans have closed tens of fansites and fancafes. The official admins of the 2PM official fansite were humiliated by how the 2PM members acted at the conference and have voluntarily resigned. The resigned fan representative stated that they had kept together by believing in the members, but now all trust had collapsed and were no longer able to continue as representative. They also expressed words of sorrow for Jaebum and stated they will continue to support him.


►►First stills of Taecyeon in “Cinderella’s Sister” released + 2PM’s surprise visit


Soon after the first stills were released for Cinderella’s Sister, we have our first look at second lead Ok Taecyeon in character as Jung-woo, who grew up with a difficult (read: poor) childhood and therefore loves to eat (assuming that he didn’t have much growing up). As an adult, he’s a rather simple guy who is single-mindedly in love with with the one girl who used to cook for him, Eun-jo (Moon Geun-young).

As he is an idol singer with boy band 2PM, there’s some doubt as to how well Taecyeon will acquit himself in his acting debut. However, a source from A Story, the production company behind the drama, expressed the team’s faith in Taecyeon, saying that viewers can expect to see good screen presence and sensitivity.

►►2PM’s Taecyeon is banned from taking acting lessons

Drama Taec…I have doubts but let’s see.

Looks like Taecyeon of 2PM will be beastly as usual in his debut drama – he is now banned from having any acting lessons that might change his angry persona, even a bit.

After news was revealed regarding Taecyeon’s participation in KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama, Cinderella’s Sister, many fans were worried about Taecyeon’s performance, considering the fact that he has no acting experience. Taecyeon is undoubtedly a fresh rookie in the acting industry, especially when compared to his co-stars, including veteran Moon Geung Young.

Well, worry no more! It turns out the production team of the drama actually wanted Taecyeon to be himself and nothing more! “We want Taecyeon to show his stage image directly in front of camera,” the director said.

In response, JYPE revealed, “We were deeply concerned about Taecyeon’s new challenge on his new acting role at first, since he had never taken any proper acting lessons. However, we have decided to accept the production team’s request.”

Taecyeon will officially begin his filming session at the end of this month. His first appearance will be broadcast on April 14th, so stay tuned!

►►2PM’s Taecyeon is addicted to ripping off his shirt?

LOL I just knew it. Taec began to rip off his shirt all over the place now that it has become just a common sight now..

According to Taecyeon of 2PM, he doesn’t enjoy ripping his shirt off and showing off his fit and muscular chest. But according to the 2PM Head Choreographer, Park Nam Yong, that isn’t the case.

On the February 16th broadcast of KBS 2TV’s ‘Win Win‘, JYP Entertainment’s Head Choreographer made a surprise appearance, and had everyone laughing as he shared the reason why Taecyeon kept ripping his shirt off, even though he CLAIMS he doesn’t like to.

Park Nam Yong revealed:

“The 2PM members disliked the choreography at first. So even before any work for the album began, much time was spent having to convince them. The shirt-ripping performance was decided on only after immense persuasion, but after seeing the positive response it gained, Taecyeon kept ripping off his shirt even when he wasn’t told to do so. A few days before, I received a text message stating ‘Hyung, I’m sorry. I got caught up in the moment so I ripped off my shirt again.’ ”

When he was later asked about whether or not 2PM members have rivalries between each other, Park Nam Yong replied: “Before the year-end awards, one member asked me “Can’t I be the one to rip off my shirt at the year-end award show that’s coming up soon?” to which the entire studio laughed at the sight of Junho’s face immediately turning bright red.

►►2PM’s Taecyeon falls in love with a woman who can cook in his drama

2PM’s Taecyeon will star in a drama called Cinderalla’s Sister which will air on March after KBS Chuno. It’s been revealed that his character, Jungwoo, is very similar to to Taecyeon in reality!

Jungwoo is an intelligent young adult who falls in love with Eunjo (played by Moon Geun Young). Because Jungwoo grew up in a divorced household, it wasn’t easy for him to find a woman to fall in love with. Turns out that the reason he ended up falling for Eunjo was… food. A representative of the producers of the drama stated, “Jungwoo is someone who didn’t get to eat meals prepared by his mom. The first woman who prepares a meal for him is Eunjo. After that event, Jungwoo decides to love her forever.”

This happens to be sort of the same in real life for Taecyeon; a JYPE rep stated, “Taecyeon is known for his fast eating. Even in his group [2PM], he is a beast at eating. … Although it’s his first time acting, there are a lot of similarities between the character and himself, so we are confident that he will do well.”

The filming for Cinderalla’s Sister is set to begin this week. Stay tuned for this drama on March!

►►Beastly idol 2PM’s LEADER Taecyeon’s yawn~

Shock #1: stupid news reporters associate Taecyeon as 2PM’s LEADER now (as translated straight from the title)…
Shock #2: even his yawn makes the news @_@

Beastly idol LEADER Taecyeon’s yawn~

On the 6th, 2PM held a fanmeeting for Samsung’s Anycall Corby phones. Through 200 fans selected through a mobile event, the fans were able to participate in a variety of activites with 2PM such as dance tutorials, picture sessions, and Q&A sessions.

►►2PM Taecyeon and SNSD Yoona will not be lovers on Family Outing 2


It seems like will not be able to see 2PM’s Taecyeon and SNSD’s Yoona having a relationship between each other on the upcoming Family Outing Season 2.

On January 28th, the PD of the show said “I know that fans are highly anticipated to see a loveline between Taecyeon and Yoona on the show, but there will be nothing like that whatsoever.” He then said, “There will be no loveline, but they will be shown as good friends to the public. While we were filming, shooting only the two of them looked so beautiful, but I had to be persistent. There is no reason to purposely make a loveline between the two.”

Fans expected the two to have a cute lovelife because of their couple stage on the MBC Gayo Daejun, and the rumor of them wearing the same ring (couple rings).

Netizens are speculating that the two were actually dating, but Taecyeon denied it, saying “It’s just for business.”

The PD is making the right choice, as the loveline will just get antifans for the both of them, since they are idols.

But who knows? The two might develop a lovelife naturally.

►►2PM’s Taecyeon to debut as drama actor with KBS “Cinderella Sister”!

2009 was one heck of a drama year, but that doesn’t mean 2010 can’t top it!

2PM’s Taecyeon will be casted as the following male lead in ‘Cinderella Sister.’

The following project to KBS 2TV’s drama ‘Chuno,’ Taecyeon will play the male role of Jungwoo in ‘Cinderella Sister.’

The character that he will play is a bright, healthy, and honest young man. However, there is also an air of innocence to him because he always only gazes at Eunjo (Played by Moon Geunyoung). He’s manly and dependable, surely to capture the hearts of women.

Taecyeon is already known as a beastly idol. However, anyone knows that there is also a fun and honest side to him as shown through ‘Hot Blood’ and ‘Wild Bunny.’

An associate of the drama stated “Although Taecyeon doesn’t have experience in acting, he usually carries a healthy and bright image and so he surely won’t be lacking amongst the cast of Chun Jungmyung, Moon Geunyoung, and Seo Woo. We truly believe that Taecyeon will be able to blow life into the character, which is why we are casting him.”

Moon Geunyoung will be having her first attempt at acting an antagonist (uh..not really, just watch “Shining Inheritance” lol) and is receiving much attention and anticipation from viewers.

‘Cinderella Sister’ will air March of 2010.

Okcat got told? :/

He then posted a new entry at 3:15 am.
Fans capped his first entry and posted it on tellzone.

Will please only the fans who love me and appreciate me, read this~!!
2010.01.19 02:57 AM
I wanted to say, “The fart face that released my pictures, surrender yourself!”
Which is the reason why I uploaded a picture of myself with Shinae and Haeri.
It was not my intention to fire up the netizens…
I’m starting my Cyworld again, why would I want to start it off on a bad note??

And for those Nate replies, I will try my best to practice on my singing instead of being on Cyworld.
Even though I’m a rapper, the person still went out of their way to tell me to practice singing so I will try my best!

And you guys do know the reason that I write on my Cyworld is to communicate with my fans and those that have interest in me?
