And we're really really really thankful to our Angels as we carried out our promotional activities this time~
The reason why we could have received so much attention and love.. We think it's because we have the Angels that made it possible.
I want to remember all of our Angels' names and faces but…

[NEWS] T.O.P, “If the image of a ‘star’ becomes a hindrance to my acting, then I will throw that image away any time"

Posted: 20 Feb 2012 03:33 AM PST

Big Bang TOP, "If the image of a 'star' becomes a hindrance to my acting, then I will throw that image away any time."

Big Bang's TOP recently showed an interest and attachment to the subject of "acting".

Being able to freely manage the life of a musician and actor, TOP decked out the front cover of a special edition March issue of Cosmo Men Magazine. As TOP showed off the image of a very playful gentleman in his New York style suits, he also gave off the vibe of a very masculine charisma that not many other idol members can pull off.

During an interview(with Cosmo Men), TOP said that he would throw away the image of a "star" any day if it was to get in the way of him becoming an actor, hence stating that he would never want to take on the roles of a popular singer, a bad boy, or a wealthy family's son since those are the only characters that tend to garner the most popularity. He stated that he wants to take on a role that suits him well, not just a role where he can gain popularity from it.

When the interviewer confessed that he would do well in any role, he stated, "I had times when I thought that being a celebrity didn't fit me at all," but confessed that, "Even though I was not born to be a celebrity, I have studied about it a lot and have many things learned. I am still continuing to learn to become the best."

In addition to the interview when asked, TOP gave a witty answer of, "I like a girl who is gentle and can handle both herself and myself together. I would like to get married at a later age, but if fate brings us together sooner, then any time would still be great."

The Cosmopolitan Men interview with TOP will soon be open to the public in March.

[NEWS] American rapper-producer Swizz Beatz talks about K-Pop

Posted: 20 Feb 2012 03:31 AM PST

Swizz Beatz paints K-pop's rosy future in world market

Swizz Beatz, a renowned American rapper-producer, said on Monday K-pop is leading a trend for new music and that he wants to play a leading role in introducing Asia to the West through Korean music.

"What I found in Korean pop music is a new expression. The world is open for new things and I think right now K-pop in Korea is leading in that area. I'd like to be the one to introduce that to the West," the musician said during a news conference in Seoul.

The musician, also husband of the famous U.S. singer Alicia Keys, is in Seoul to sign a partnership agreement between his company named after him and O & Media, a South Korean entertainment company.

The agreement calls for the two companies' partnership in helping U.S. pop artists advance to the Asian market and new K-pop artists to the U.S. market, according to the local entertainment agency. The two sides also plan to produce joint albums of leading musicians of both countries, it said.

"My idea to bridge the world together with music starting in Asia and going to the West is something that is new, untapped and leading to the future of bringing the worlds together. And this partnership is the beginning in making a history," Beatz said.

He said K-pop represented by such leading groups and singers as Kara, Big Bang, 2NE1 and Boa has already had many successes in Asia but can appeal to the world with help from the partnership.

Swizz Beatz, whose real name is Kasseem Dean, has produced pop albums for top celebrities, including Madonna, Britney Spears, Eminem, U2, Lady Gaga and Jay Z.

The musician is also known for expanding his business to other industries such as film and art.

"I think the more we come together, the more that everybody as a musical voice can be heard because music, whether it's in hard times or good times, is always the No. 1 answer," he stressed.

[News] Nichkhun gets offended with Block B's interview

Posted: 20 Feb 2012 03:31 AM PST


2PM's Nichkhun and fellow members left criticizing tweets toward Block B's controversial interview.

On February 19th, Nichkhun tweeted, "The people who thoughtlessly comment on the flood damages in Thailand, I feel offended as a person of Thai nationality. And rather than acting thoughtlessly when you come to Thailand, you should have respect towards the country and have the attitude to recognize it in a rightful manner."

During an interview for Thai online media RYT9's 'New Artist- Block B in Thailand', Block B made an inappropriate comment about a flood in Thailand. In the video clip, Block B said, "Hope the monetary compensation helps to heal your hearts. We got nothing but money. About 7,000 KRW (a little less than $7)?", with their easy-going attitude. Such statements and actions have been criticized as insensitive creating a buzz online.

2PM members, Junho and Chansung also left messages. Junho stated, "I will not mention any names but the action and the attitude was very embarrassing as a Korean myself. Such action not only affects the person but also makes the people around them look bad. Just know that and behave. I'm saying this as a human being and as a senior artist."

Chansung said, "No matter how hard you try not to be careless, it happens sometimes. However, being inconsiderate and acting as if you are better than others is not being careless but just proves what kind of person you are. You should be ashamed."
