[News] The Rooftop posse assembles for a test shoot!

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 07:38 AM PST



Here's a look at the men of the upcoming fantasy-sageuk-time-traveler drama Rooftop PrinceYoochun stars as the Joseon-era crown prince and should, in my opinion, always be in sageuks; he just looks so much better in my eyes in that dignified sageuk-wear. Either that or he could just adopt hanbok as his everyday dress, though really, it might just be easier to keep acting in costume dramas.
In the drama, Princey makes the 300-year quantum leap with his entourage, which consists of Lee Min-ho (The Moon That Embraces the Sun), Jung Seok-won (Ojakkyo Brothers), and Choi Woo-shik (Tree With Deep Roots). I'm bracing myself for the inevitable moniker F4, which will undoubtedly be slapped onto this quartet, even though it's a term that reallyneeds to take a hiatus from popular usage. I guess it's convenient, though; you won't find shorter shorthand around to describe a foursome of pretty, pretty young men. 
About the prince's posse: Lee Min-ho's character is a prickly sort — you know, uptight and difficult to please — and also a genius. "Pure macho" swordsman Jung Seok-won is always on his guard and ready to protect the prince. And eunuch Choi Woo-shik happens to be "the original vegetarian," which I hope gets used for comic effect.



Aside from the fact that this prince is considered handsome, I'm feeling a lot more Vampire Idol with this bunch than F4 — and that's a great thing, because the vampire idol boys are hilarious. And adorable. They're also fish out of water, just from the other end of the time-space continuum where they're used to things being a lot more high-tech and easy than contemporary life in Korea.
The drama recently held its first script reading at SBS's Ilsan Production Center on the afternoon of February 1, where they also held a camera test with our series leads. That also included our second leads, pictured below in modern-day-wear as characters the crown prince meets when warping to the future. Er, the present. Lee Tae-sung (Playful Kiss) plays a charming playboy, while Jung Yumi (Thousand Day Promise) will fall into a love triangle with the prince and his princess-lookalike, played by Han Ji-min. Han was conspicuously absent from the photos, but she's probably busy still shooting Padam Padam, which is winding up for its finale week.
Rooftop Prince will premiere on Wednesday, March 14.

[News] Yoona confesses, “Sunny threatened to push me down the stairs!”!

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 06:24 AM PST



Girls' Generation member Yoona spoke out about an incident where Sunny threatened to hurt her after a playful tease went overboard.
During the recent recording of JTBC's 'SNSD and the Dangerous Boys', the Girls' Generation members and the boys took to court the incident where an argument broke out in the boys' dorm involving Kim Hwehoon and Park Kyungkyu. Yoona, who was also present at this hearing, unexpectedly revealed incidents that had happened within their group in order to support the boys' case.
Yoona confessed to have gotten into trouble with some of her group members due to her playfulness and pranks going overboard by adding, "I have also been punished due to my prank on the members.".
She spoke out about this one incident where they were all in the waiting room at a music program and because they were all tired most of the members had fallen asleep. But Yoona, being the playful type that she is, picked the wrong time to start throwing her aegyo to her unnies, and after a while when she didn't stop, Yoona finally hit Sunny's last nerve. Sunny had then exploded at Yoona threatening her that she will 'seriously push her down the stairs'.
Surprised at Yoona's sudden confession, Sunny rebutted that she wasn't the only one, and spoke out that Yuri had also gotten angry at Yoona and was saying bad things that time as well. Hearing this, Yuri pretended she didn't know anything which made Sunny lost for words in a difficult position.
Yoona also revealed that, although Seohyun doesn't play any pranks on the other members, she does tend to say things straight to your face. For example, when the members go eat fast food, Seohyun would tell them, "If you eat a lot of fast food, you're going to die".
The court trial about the playful argument between Kim Hwehoon and Park Kyungkyu, and Yoona's confession about Girls' Generation members will all be revealed on February 5th at 7.30pm on JTBC's 'SNSD and the Dangerous Boys'.

[News] Salamander Guru Viewership and Praise for Minho’s Acting

Posted: 04 Feb 2012 06:17 AM PST

"Salamander Guru" Minho's Proficient acting.. "Highest viewer rating since broadcast"


SBS Friday Night show "Salamander Guru and the Shadows" received the highest rating since broadcast

On 4 February, according to research company AGB Nielsen Media Research findings, "Salamander Guru" broadcast on 3 February received a national viewership of 7.5%

This is 0.9% higher than the 6.7% viewership for the 28 January Broadcast - receiving the highest viewer rating since broadcast.

In this episode, Minhyuk (Played by Minho) found a Salamander tattoo on the arm of "Eight City Gang's" Boss, and had determined that he was the murderer who killed his father. Minhyuk was boiling with rage and kept investigating on this issue. But he then found out that the Boss's tattoo was only done 3 years ago, having no relationship with his father's death. This incident continues to remain as a mystery.

In this show, the most outstanding performance was by Minho - he did a wonderful performance to enact the role of Minhyuk. His anger over his father's death was not overly exaggerated, he beautifully portrayed the meaning of an acting idol. The viewership ratings was also contributed by other casts in the show - Oh Dal-su, Lim Won Hie, Ryoo Hyoun-Kyoung etc

At the same time KBS2 drama "The Clinic for Married Couples: Love and War" and MBC's "MBC International Music Era" had viewership rating of 10.5% and 4% respectively.

They are the first Korean artists to hold a performance in Taiwan in the year of the dragon, and from February to May, on average there would be 3 South Korean male groups or solo artists who would be 'reporting to' Taiwan every month to snag profits.


Super Junior came to Taiwan this time in separate batches. Leader Leeteuk had first landed in Taiwan in the night of February 1st with his fellow members Yesung, Donghae, Eunhyuk and Super Junior-M's Henry, and because it is Winter holidays the airport was crowded with more than 400 fans who welcomed their arrival. Another batch of members, which includes Sungmin, Shindong, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun, will be taking the airlines with the flight number CI421 today, and will be arriving in Taiwan at 11am. Siwon, on the other hand, will be taking the flight TG634 on his own, and will be arriving at 11.55am.



On the other hand, Kyuhyun's father will be starting a Korean language tuition centre in Taiwan, and had decided that the opening ceremony would be held a day after his son's birthday on the 4th of February. A part of the Super Junior members will also be gracing the event and will hold a fansign event at the same time. They will be giving their autographs to the first 300 fans who registers for classes.

[Interview] 6 member group TEEN TOP “We want to win 1st place so much we’re going crazy”

Posted: 03 Feb 2012 11:59 PM PST




Their entrance was different from the rest. When the doors to the studio for the photoshoot opened, they entered with such a pose that I don't know if they had already practiced before. It was as if the popular internet webtoon 'Fashion King' had came to life.
The moment they entered the studio they were absorbed in checking their outfits and hairstyles. They were busy teasing and commenting on one another's pose.
But they did not manage to play around much.  When the filming started,  they were so engrossed as though they have transformed to another person. Nervousness is not a word suitable to decscribe them.
This is TEEN TOP's story. TEEN TOP is a 6 member group made up of C.A.P (real name Bang Minsoo 19), L.Joe (Lee Byunghun 18), Chunji (Lee Chanhee 18), Niel (real name Ahn Daniel 17), Ricky (Yoo Changhyun 16), Changjo (Choi Jonghyun 16)
TEEN TOP returned with their 2nd mini album [It's] in January.  They are the younger-guys with charismatic performances and masculinity, they told noona fans not to put on perfume. The title track 'Crazy' is a song that has an easy going melody and rap, showing off a variety of choreographed moves.
As idols in the music industry that welcomed spring in 2012, with their good looks, vocals and powerful performances, they have risen to become the new 'in-trend-dols' (in-trend + idols)
  • TEEN TOP is about 'perfectly synced dance'
Amongst the many idol groups, TEEN TOP is well known for their synced dance. In order to hear that 'TEEN TOP is about their perfectly synced dance' they spent 10 hours a day on practicing their choreography. As a result, they have earned the nickname of 'perfectly synced dance idols'.
"We practise our choreography from 10 in the morning to 10 at night. Other than the time for school and vocal practise, we spend our time on practicing our choreography" (Ricky), "A charismatic performance is surprisingly easier. Like in the title track 'Crazy' we TEEN TOP were able to show what we have got, and that's enough (to make the hardwork worthwhile). It's the reason why we enjoyed the long practice hours." (Chunji, Changjo)
The members who had the great desire to show a diverse performance and a perfect stage, they gave it their all to practise. Perfectly synced dance has become part of TEEN TOP's daily routine.
  •  How is it like living as an idol singer? Is it fun?
"Now we know where all the cameras are positioned. It's more fun as time passes. At first we didn't know how to enjoy and we were in a rush to show what we have practiced, but now I think we've learnt how to enjoy it a little more. The sense of freedom we feel when we complete and get off the stage? Of course it can't be expressed in words." (Niel, L.Joe)
  • As compared to when you guys first debuted, what's the biggest change?
"I think no matter what it's the actions we do on stage, our expressions, the way we look into the camera. I feel that all the members are much better at this than before." (C.A.P)


  •  'Ruler of elementary school kids' TEEN TOP is also capturing the hearts of noonas
With the average age of 17, TEEN TOP is definitely different on stage and off stage. In their daily lives, they joke around just like many other students but when they stand on stage, there is a sudden change. They show confidence and passionate gestures on the diverse stage. 'Ruler of elementary school kids' aka the younger guys are attracting driving many women crazy regardless of age.
  • When being called the 'Ruler of elementary school kids', can you feel your popularity? We heard that you have gained many noona fans as well?
"We're still not really sure yet. When we meet our fans during our promotional activities, I feel really amazed and grateful. It feels great that our team members are gaining popularity in all age groups" (L.Joe)
  •  Is there a memorable fan?
"We strive to remember all the fans. There was this one fan who came the autograph session wearing a hanbok; she prepared a meal and asked us to marry her. I remember this Japanese fan who came dressed in Super Mario to ask for an autograph" (Niel, Chunji)
In a recent survey of 20 experts in the music industry, "Which idol will explode in popularity in 2012" and in the category of male idols, TEEN TOP came in 2nd.  Popular composer cum producer Brave Brothers chose TEEN TOP as the rising stars in 2012.
"Their flawless synced dance and outstanding stage manners and performance leave great impression and knowing them in person, they are as kind and sincere,  as much as their outstanding talents. So they are a team that I'll look forward to even more in the future" (Brave Brothers)
TEEN TOP is a group that has been raised by SHINHWA member Andy. Andy is TEEN TOP's strong supporter and teacher.
"Andy hyung taught as how all the members can stay together and told us to look for our individual specialties. We learnt that with strong friendship and teamwork we have to compensate on one others' weaknesses. He has great experience as a singer so he personally taught as the know-hows of posing and the expressions on stage" (Ricky, Changjo)


  • "We want to win 1st place so much we're going crazy"
As the interview carried on we had expected more joking sides of TEEN TOP. They were rather conscientious. When we asked them about their usual personalities, we received an unexpected reply, "You probably won't believe this, but we're all introverts. We don't get close to people we just meet. So we only play amongst ourselves. But when we go on stage we change"  
  • A music genre that you would like to pursue? Who are your role models?
"We want to do style of music like Big Bang sunbaenim." (Chunji). "Our role model is SHINHWA sunbaenim. We want to learn their perfectly synced dances and unchanging friendship." (Ricky)
Lastly we asked them what was driving them crazy as they promote 'Crazy'. The member who replied first was L.Joe. "It was the cuss word controversy. As compared to performing an entire song, the 4 words were even more difficult (지옥같아 like hell). The cuss word controversy happened because of the fast pronunciation of jiookkatta. Many people had heard it is a cuss word.
The remaining members, as though they had made a promise together, shouted in unison "We want to win 1st place so much we're going crazy". We could sense the burning desire in their eyes and voices. They said that as a singer, the goal and wish is the 1st place.  Just like they really want to realize the wish, we're watching when the TEEN TOP fans will be able to realize it as well
