[Trans] Hanako : Chansung × Taecyeon!

Posted: 10 Feb 2012 07:39 AM PST




Chansung × Taecyeon
Taecyeon and Chansung became icons of "Beastly Idols" with their beauty and perfect sculpturesque bodies. What is hidden behind their cool looks…?

--- We have this image that Taecyeon is a big brother, and Chansung is the youngest one. What is it like in real life?
CS: Taecyeon always has his strong will and leads the team at the right time….
TY: …What a cool guy.
CS: I was about to say that! LOL He also has a good sense of humor.
TY: Although Chansung is the youngest in 2PM, he is more like a friend who is reliable and gives me convincing pieces of advice. However, at the same time he has a cute side of his. He often bites people.
CS: Yes, frequently. LOL I feel like biting people when I am in a good mood.

--- Chansung, I heard that once you had 49 bananas in a day. Are there any more "legendary" stories of you two?
CS: One day when we were still trainees, a staff-member took us to a kimbab restaurant.
TY: We were always hungry back then, right?
CS: So the sad story was that... The three of us ordered 12 portions of kimbab. The staff-member had one and Taecyeon and I ate the rest.

--- Which part of Taecyeon's or Chansung's personality has changed the most since your debut?
CS: Taecyeon never fails to put 2PM first. That part of him hasn't changed.
TY: The thing about Chansung that hasn't changed is the fact that he has always been working very hard, so I think he made the biggest improvement among the members.

--- In your opinion, what kind of lady would match Taecyeon/Chansung?
CS: I think someone who has a kind heart and could accept Taecyeon as he is would match him.
TY: Right now, even if Chansung had a girlfriend, he might prioritize 2PM over her. She has to be broad-minded and understand his position.

--- If a lady just like what you've said appeared and you both fell in love with her…
CS: Ah, I would surrender.
TY: Oh okay, then I'd go out with her. LOL No, the most important thing is the lady's opinion, so I'll leave up to her to decide. So anyway, why would you give up so easily?
CS: I don't want to have any trouble with Taecyeon, because we will be working together in the future...
TY: See? This is the reason why Chansung's woman has to be someone very understanding.
CS: I see. I wonder if I can find such a person though… LOL

--- Lastly, what do you think will become of you in 10 years' time?
CS: I think Taecyeon will be a model for a European top class brand. I think he'll become a grown-up, who suits that sort of fashion.
TY: Thank you. LOL I think Chansung will be a singer who specializes in ballroom dancing.
CS: Hahahaha.What is that!?
TY: You'll be a first person to do singing and ballroom dancing at the same time. LOL But I am sure we will continue being 2PM. I think each of us will be doing our own things, and get together as fellow members and good friends in 10 years of time.

Posted: 10 Feb 2012 05:43 AM PST


Ahead of filming KBS's beloved program, '1 Night 2 Days' final episode, cast member Lee Seung Gi updated his official website to expressed his gratitude and bid farewell to the program that gave him much love.

Lee Seung Gi wrote, "Final filming of 1 Night, 2 Days tomorrow. They say if one thinks too much it becomes a blank paper? My heart feels empty. I don't know if I feel relieved, disappointed or regretful."

"During the past six years I've been on 1N2D, my life has sparkled along. I learned a lot of things, matured a lot and met so many wonderful people. I don't think I will ever meet a show like this again. It might even be the most fun and laughter-filled period of my life. However, I'm embarrassed at myself wanting to not let go of reality because of any fears associated with that."

He continued, "From now on, I will have to start anew. This is the responsibility of living on with the name of 'Lee Seung Gi'. Rather than us, I'm more thankful and more respectful of those who have cared for, gained strength from , and enjoyed watching a program called '1N2D'."

[News] CGV Hit With A Boycott After Cancelling The ‘JYJ Documentary’

Posted: 10 Feb 2012 05:25 AM PST


A controversy has risen over the cancellation of JYJ's daily life documentary 'The Day', around ten days before its scheduled release.

The situation is growing bigger as JYJ's agency C-JeS Entertainment has filed a complaint against CJ CGV's for a breach in their contract and JYJ's fans have stepped up and begun to boycott CGV.

On Daum Telzone's JYJ Star Zone, fans began posting photos of their newly cut-up CJ CGV cards. A petition was also begun recently on Daum's Agora with the title 'Even their documentary is cancelled.. When will this bullying end for JYJ?' and signatures are flooding in. With a goal of 100,000 signatures, the petition has already collected over 4,000.

The petition states the following.
JYJ's fans are in a state of shock once more.

This time, it is regarding CGV's unilateral contract revocation and cancellation of JYJ's documentary movie 'THE DAY'. With only ten days before the movie's release, that is.

A mere two weeks ago, JYJ's agency C-JeS couldn't hide their joy as they revealed on the 19th of January that, "We will be holding a movie screening for the daily life documentary of JYJ that was cancelled last winter." Fans felt the same way. This movie cancellation can be seen as another step in the 'group bullying' process that JYJ have faced, as the CEO of C-JeS himself stated.

" I do not know the specifics of CGV's internal situation that led to, not a modification of the contract, but a notification of non-fulfillment. However, I would like to say that I find it extremely unreasonable for this decision to nullify the contract to have been made so easily and boldly with the B2B contract already signed and the official announcements sent to the press."

We demand a clearer explanation from CJ CGV.

We can no longer allow these 'group bullying' situations that are happening to JYJ on a regular basis continue on.
Netizens, we ask for you help
As seen in the petition above, the opinion has been brought up that this is a case of group bullying in the entertainment industry.

C-JeS revealed, "The examination of the contract's specifics was completed by representatives of both sides and a press release was distributed on the 19th, and we received a contract on the 20th," and "But CGV notified us through a telephone conversation that, "As this is a contract that was not approved by the final arbiter, we will nullify the contract."

Though CGV stated, "C-JeS sent out press releases and notified the public of the movie's screening even though the contract hadn't been finalized," C-JeS criticized them of creating another instance of 'group bullying' due to external pressure and has filed a case against CGV with the Fair Trade Commission.

JYJ's 'The Day' was scheduled to air on cable channel QTV and even had teaser videos playing on the channel but was soon shut down and unable to air on TV.

The reason why a steady stream of external pressure rumors has followed JYJ is because JYJ have faced countless obstacles appearing in broadcasted programs due to their legal dispute with SM Entertainment, the agency of their former group 'TVXQ'.

Despite the many difficulties, JYJ gained many international fans through their world tour and are planning to perform in South America in March.

[Blog] In the bubble of K-pop, bigger is not always better

Posted: 10 Feb 2012 04:56 AM PST


To keep up with the fast moving world of K-pop, it's no longer enough to follow your favorite boy or girl band. These days, fans have to keep track of an ever-changing array of smaller groups that come together almost as fast as they break apart.

These smaller groups are often formed from an already proven success, with bands like Super Junior and After School giving rise to newer and sometimes better versions of themselves before they are absorbed back into the original band or spun off again into another duo or trio.

Orchestrating this wave of constant combinations are the entertainment agencies who train and finance the bands until they turn out a profit.

By breaking down groups and repackaging them, the companies can spotlight individual members of K-pop super groups, which can consist of as many as 10 members or more. Members of the smaller groups are featured for more than just a few seconds each per song and the companies build a stronger fan base for the original group.


According to pop music critic Kim Jag-ga, pop groups need to constantly evolve in order to make a profit for the huge companies that train and finance the bands.

SM Entertainment was the first to try this strategy when it broke the 13-member boy band Super Junior into four smaller groups each with its own style and concept. Two years after the group's debut in 2005, the company introduced fans to Super Junior T, a six-member group known for trot music hits, Super Junior M, a seven-member group with two Chinese nationals and a hit album released in China and Japan, and Super Junior Happy, a sextet known for its jubilant tunes and the 2008 EP "Cooking?Cooking!" But the most successful group by far has been Super Junior-K.R.Y., a trio of balladeers comprising the three best vocalists in the group. Their album "Fly" from last year has topped charts and the group has toured Japan three times.

The success of these sub-groups has led other major bands to follow their lead, with some of the smaller groups attracting even more attention then the originals.

That was the case with Orange Caramel, a quartet featuring the four youngest members of the girl group After School. The group was formed in 2010 and got their first taste of fame with an EP they released that June. They won fans over with their doll-like appearance and cute performances and they've topped online music charts with songs such as "A-ing," and "Shanghai Romance."

One of the newest groups to emerge is Rainbow Pixie, which debuted with the song "Hoi Hoi" and consists of three members of the girl group Rainbow.

It's gimmick is colorful costuming and choreography with lots of waving magic wands.

In other cases, the sub-group directs fans back to the original group.

The duo that is Sistar 19 won fame for its fast songs and short skirts, quickly surpassing the popularity of the four-member group that gave it its name. In its original incarnation, Sistar was known for light and cheerful songs.

Sometimes, the new groups are formed with members from other bands from the same entertainment agency.

Cube Entertainment used this tactic to form Trouble Maker. The popular group was a duo consisting of Hyun-A from 4Minute and Jang Hyun-seung from Beast and its self-titled EP went to No. 1 on various music charts.

But in a reflection of how quickly these groups come together and fade away, Trouble Maker is already part of K-pop history.
