[News] ‘Gag concert – Praying mantis kindergarten’ took on JYJ sasaeng fans!

Posted: 19 Mar 2012 08:57 AM PDT



Choi Hyojong has caught the eye of public by his remarks describing JYJ sasaeng fans on his corner 'Gag concert – Praying mantis kindergarten'.
In the episode broadcasted on March 18, to answering the question "What do you have to do to become a famous celebrity with lots of fans?", Choi Hyojong responded "That's not hard. All you have to do is having a solid talent, a gifted star quality and the ability to manage your fans."
Then he continued to describe some behaviours of JYJ sasaeng fans "Someone grasped you when you are going home after a schedule. When you are trying to do your business in the bathroom, when you are sleeping at home, someone is always beside you. At times like that, all you must say is '(Since) I am lonely right now, thank you.'
Furthermore, he added "If you order Chinese food over the phone, fans will be the first one to come and say 'Here is your black noodles, oppa'. Whenever you open your cell phone after changing its number, you will receive phone calls 'Oppa, why did you change your number?'. Then, Choi Hyojong sarcastically described sasaeng fans as "Someone who is always beside you, whom you have to be thankful for."
He also advised "One day, because of something bad happens, you lose your emper with your fans? Be careful. You will never know if they are carrying a recorder or not." At the end, the sharp-tongued gagman shouted out to the sasaeng fans "Just like when you are driving, a safe distance with your oppa is important."
Here is the video of that segment:

[Trans] 120310 Hayato’s Blog Update!

Posted: 19 Mar 2012 08:44 AM PDT


Hayato's Blog Update for March 10 is here.

Read it below.

10 March 2012
Today of last year
Due to the filming of 3V2, I skipped work and went to the Okutama's kajika frog park with Junsu and the staffs.
In front of me was a really bad pollen due to the cryptomeria forest.
It was the worst condition for me but I wonder how it was for Junsu?
I stuffed my nose with tissue and face mask perfected my guard.

During the filming, Mr X came to whisper at Junsu's ear.
…If compared to Jaejoong and Yoochun, isn't this bad…They were really hyper and we took a lot of good videos…
Then, maybe he was driven by those words?…The Junsu we filmed at the hot spring was the best *big laugh*
The things that Mr X did had already been a matter of a year ago.
During my interview, Junsu had answered sincerely. The feelings he had for the fans had excruciatingly been conveyed, I remembered that there's even a report that staffs even cried.
When we called Junsu for his bath, did you guys also went into the bath?
It becomes an anniversary right? Anyway…ah-I should skip that one *laugh*

Junsu also experienced the Great Tohoku Earthquake the day after of last year…Was it at about 2.46pm of March 11?
It was about 30 minutes after I split up with Junsu and returned to the office.
I was checking up the disaster caused by the tsunami, and quite a while after the information of victims were known. Once in a while, I read about Junsu's condition on iPhone while waiting for the return of the staffs.
The staffs that went to send Junsu returned after 1 am after midnight.
Since they were hungry, they went to get cup ramen at the convenience store, but sadly there's only one left.

I once again, pray for the happiness in the next world to those who lost their lives.
And, for those who are living in the disaster area and who are still trying to get back to their normal live, I hope for your heart to revive and feel at ease even a day faster.

And then to the people JYJ had helped who are living in the disaster area and who are making great progress.
They(JYJ) are young, but realizing what oneself could do to help.
I'm really really thankful.
Thank you very much.

After that too, those guys ran swiftly without rest.
The tour in South America, I'm sure they will end it safely and return amidst the storm of great admiration, right?

Just that, let's ask them to return with a smile.
I think the thing those guys need right now is everyone's warm smile.

Know more about Rising Star Dia Frampton!

Posted: 19 Mar 2012 07:00 AM PDT





Dia Frampton, runner up from Season 1 of a reality TV show called "The Voice," had a behind the scenes chat with us the other day.  This Hapa, (half-white, half-Korean) singer/songwriter took a moment to talk to us about life on the road and how much her life has changed since "The Voice."
What were you doing a year from today, and how has your life changed since The Voice?
A year from today I was working in a cupcake shop called Crumbs in New York City.  I was 24 years old and about ready to give up on music.  I started my first band when I was 14 and worked my way up from there.  At first I played shows in garages, bars, house parties, and small local venues.  My sister Meg and I started a few different bands over time.  A band we started, called "Meg and Dia," got signed to a major label but then got dropped shortly after.  After that, we kept on working, not wanting to give up.  We took what little  money we had left over from years of touring on the road and used it to record a new album.  We couldn't afford a studio, so we recorded it in my mom's house.  We didn't know how to promote it though, and it didn't sell very well.  Meg got a job at a jewelry shop and I got a job at the cupcake shop.  Then a friend called me up and said that I should try out for "The Voice." I thought, well, what have I got to lose? 



For those of us who don't know you, can you tell us about yourself?  What are three random things about you?  
Yes! I am a singer songwriter from Utah!  Hmmm...three random things.  I love dancing.  I used to take break dance and hip hop and jazz classes when I was younger. I love to read.  I was always the kid in school that finished the class book assigned for the month within 3 days.  I always have my nose in a book.  I love to travel!  I've been to South Korea, Germany, Thailand, Switzerland, London, Scotland, Canada, and Mexico and my goal is to travel the world!  
When did you first discover that you loved music?
I started singing around the age of nine.  It was almost contagious.  One day I was sitting listening to my dad's old record player, and then he brought me a present.  I opened it and it was a Leann Rimes CD.  My dad said, "She's not much older than you, and she has her own record!"  I thought it was so crazy that a little girl could sing that well.  I started singing her songs first.  
The Voice aired in South Korea.  What did your Korean relatives think when they saw you on TV?  
My Grandma freaked out and called my mom and said, "I am watching Dia on TV right now at the piano!  She has grown so much!"  Haha.  It's kind of crazy to think of my cousins watching me on TV.
What was it like working with country music superstar, Blake Shelton?  
It has been absolutely amazing.  He is such an inspirational person to be around!  He has helped me so much and right now I'm currently on tour with him!  It's been incredible to perform for 8,000 people a night!  He also sang on my record on a song called, "I will."  It's a song I wrote about how much he's inspired me, and given life to my dream again.  
Your album, "RED," came out last December.  What was it like writing for the album?  What are your favorite songs off the record?
Right after "The Voice" ended, I began writing for "RED."  I got to work with some amazing writers and producers, including Mark Foster from Foster the People, Isabella Summers from Florence and the Machine, and Dave Harris, John Mayor's guitar player.  A couple of my favorite songs off the record are, "Don't kick the chair," "Broken ones," and "Billy the kid."  



You are half Korean.  Do you speak Korean and have you visited Korea before?  
I speak very little Korean although I have been trying to learn lately.  Everyday after a show I study Korean for an hour or as long as I can get in before we take off for the next city!  I have visited Seoul before, where my mom was born and raised, and it is an amazing city!  The people there are very kind and very sweet. 
Can you cook Korean food?
Yes I can!  I make bibimbap and Sundubu jigae.  My mom also taught me how to make kimchi and cucumber kimchi.  My mom is an amazing cook and makes delicious Korean dishes.  Each time I'm home from  tour she teaches me something new.  
Would you ever like to perform in Korea? 
Oh my goodness, yes!  That way my Grandma could watch me sing in real life and not on a TV screen!  It would be a dream to sing in my mom's hometown, Seoul.  



If you could collaborate with any K-POP artists, who would it be and why?
There are a lot of bands I would love to collaborate with.  It would be fun to do a song with 2NE1 or Wonder Girls, although they are way better dancers than I am and I would probably just look stupid dancing next to them! Ha.  I would really like to do a song with Big Bang too.  I've enjoyed being turned on to the K-POP world.  It's all my cousins listen to.  I did a cover of a Wonder Girls song as well the other day on tour.  You can listen to it here:

[NEWS] How the Big Bang members get their girls

Posted: 19 Mar 2012 04:40 AM PDT


The Big Bang members are freely handing out information these days, but who knew they'd be so open about how they seduce women?

Big Bang appeared on the March 18 broadcast of SBS' You and I to perform the singles from its fifth mini album.

During a talk session of the show, the MCs boldly asked the members how they approach the women they like. G-Dragon first said that he would show his affection openly by staring at her strongly and so on.

Daesung said he would suddenly pop up in front of her and say, "It's the first time." He explained that it was a good way to start an easy conversation as she always answers with the question, "What do you mean?"

T.O.P. was the most daring of the members. He said he would put his cell phone in the woman's back pocket. When Lee Hyori pointed out, "Then you would be touching her butt," he corrected, "Then I'll put it in her front pocket," but the only thing he got out of the statement were boos that his correction was even weirder.

Taeyang chose a more timid way; he chose to ask a fellow member for help, and for Seungri, T.O.P. took it into his own hands to reenact Seungri's methods. He then started staring someone up and down, drawing out more boos from the audience, and Seungri had a hard time trying to explain himself that he had never done so.

Which way would work on you? Or do the methods not matter as much as the men?
