[News] The Success of U-KISS 1st JAPAN LIVE TOUR 2012 + July Concert Info!

Posted: 26 Mar 2012 08:54 AM PDT

The K-POP group with true ability, U-KISS, has attracted the most attention in 2012 and gathered around 25,000 for their first Japan nation-wide tour, "U-KISS 1st JAPAN LIVE TOUR 2012", which was brought to a close with a big success on March 25th at Zepp Tokyo. 

The minute that the members, dressed in their white suits, entered the stage, the whole hall got very excited at the same time. From the start of the live, the fans were very enthusiastic with the uptempo numbers, it started with their 2nd single "Forbidden Love" that they released last month on the 29th, their big hit "Neverland" that released last September in Korea, the Japanese versions of "Bingeul Bingeul" and "Shut Up!!", which are their popular songs from their Korean activities and others. To have fun with the fans, during "Show Me Your Smile", the members showed a comical dance that they thought of themselves.

In the middle of the show, they entered the stage wearing monotone clothes to match the concepts of the songs, and showed their unit's parts one by one. Both Kevin & Hoon's vocals were showcased in "Take me away", AJ & Kiseop's fascinating number "Obsession", the impressive "Orion" which was based on the vocal team Soohyun・Kevin・Hoon・Kiseop's beautiful harmonies, the highlight "Eeny,Meeny,Miny,Moe" which was based on the rap team Eli・AJ・Dongho's trio, they continued with their first song they sang in Japanese, "0330", which was fully charming.

Approaching the end of the live, they entered the stage in a rock styled black leather and red pants, they did the powerful "Man Man Ha Ni" with their representative "Kangnam (manly)
Dance", the members showed what kind of singing skill they have with "Someday", then their beautiful ballad number "A Shared Dream" the title song from their 1st Japanese album, after softly listening to this was the U-KISS styled "Every Day", and they brought it to a finish with their Japanese debut single "Tick Tack", an uptempo number.

For the encore, they re-entered the stage wearing their remade tour t-shirts. They enthusiastically sang "Believe" for everyone in Japan that experienced the earthquake disaster. Overcome with emotion, the members tears came out, and also had to shorten the song. Also, in the audience were member Hoon's parents and brother, who came running from Korea as a surprise, the MC segment was wrapped in a kind atmosphere when they were introduced on the stage. The last was their bright pop number, "Lifetime", and became one with the fans before ended the live. 

Bringing the nation-wide Zepp tour to an end, leader Soohyun commented, "We, U-KISS performed our first nation-wide tour, it became lives with very happy and fun memories with the many people who came. Thank you. We're thankful to the many staff who lent us their strength to carry out these lives. And above everything, we're thankful to all the fans who always give us their support. Thanks to everyone, we're able to have additional lives, and we're also thankful for that. We're doing great effort, without forgetting our initial goal, we'll do our best in order to be recognized as a J-POP artist. I love you."

In July, hoping to receive the same great success as this tour, there will be 15 lives in 9 cities, they have also decided to scale up by changing the venues to a hall (Hall can hold more people than Zepp)
, and are working to have their (fanclub)
membership exceed 35,000 people.

[News] Taemin's beauty causes "Girl groups watch out for Taemin" to trend on Korean search engines!

Posted: 26 Mar 2012 08:38 AM PDT

A humorous 'Taemin Warning' directed at idol girl groups has surfaced on account of SHINee's Taemin being 'prettier than a girl'. During SHINee's recent Inkigayo performance, a hot search term on Korean search engine websites was "Girl groups watch out for Taemin".

Taemin seems to have left the biggest impression on the public with his newfound style. Viewers first caught a glimpse of this style in his album jacket photos -- Taemin was presented with long, straight hair, giving off an air of mystical beauty. Taemin has always been recognized for this aspect, but the recent album teaser photos coupled with his overall performance style as of late seem to emphasize his beauty that much more. His small face, slim figure, and bright looks seem to rise above even members of girl groups.

Netizens commented on Taemin's comeback image, saying, "As expected, the looks of a girl group", "Taemin's looks are better than average girl group members", "Next to Taemin, the girl group members better be careful not to get embarrassed".

[News] Canadian teenage girls’ craze - “I love you, Teen Top”!

Posted: 26 Mar 2012 08:25 AM PDT

Teen Top realized their popularity even in Canada. Last 21 March many North American fans gathered from different areas just to see Teen Top perform at '2012 Canadian Music Festival' that was held in Toronto, Canada.  

At this year's 30th Anniversary of Canadian Music Festival, '2K12 Korea Night' performances started from 8pm consisting of Teen Top and the 7 other teams from Korea. On that day, performances from Lady Gaga, Bob Dylan and many more continued to stretch till the following day's 1am at Toronto's biggest night club 'Kool Haus'. 
Besides Teen Top, there were Brian, GNA, APink, along with K-Pop artist were Crying Nut, Line 3 Butterfly, Yellow Monster and many other indie bands who participated in such a huge performance. 
For this performance a total of more than 10,000 tickets were sold and 3 hours before the K-Pop stars' performances, already there were more than 70 fans forming a queue to wait. 1 hour left before the performance, over 1500 people formed a line surrounding the venue building. 

The organizing committee of Canadian Music Week (CMW) was shocked by the turn out and said " Among the festivals 'Korea Night' received the hottest response. A lot of work aroused at the concert venue but it consisted of the most successful performances"
A large portion of 7 participating teams including Teen Top was their first time performing at such a festival. Even GNA who was originally from Canada, to attend at such a huge scale festival for earnings was her first. 
The main performances during the festival was APink followed by Teen Top. Canadian fans of Teen Top who knew of them through Youtube, went all the way to the airport to pick up the boys as soon as they heard news of them coming to Canada, and even queued really early to secure a front standing view of the stage. 
Korea Foundation for International Cultural Exchange (KOFICE) the management of the Korean artistes who participated in the "Canadian Music Festival" brought tentatively 200 Teen Top CDs and within a few minutes at the venue there weren't many CDs left. Fans who couldn't get the CDs were left with a grudge. 
After the event, the 500 posters pasted outside the concert venue were all torn off and taken away by KPop fans.

[News] 'SHINee truck' parades around Seoul in promotion of SHINee's comeback

Posted: 26 Mar 2012 08:25 AM PDT

A SHINee promotional truck has been spotted around various districts of Seoul! Citizens strolling around Seoul may have encountered this vehicle, decked out with SHINee pictures from the 'Sherlock' era. The truck frequents all sorts of places, from the classy district of Gangnam to the trendy streets of Hongdae.

The truck is especially attractive on account of the giant screen rising out of the upper area. Using this apparatus, the truck plays the 'Sherlock' music video for all who are lucky enough to encounter it.

Fans often collect around the truck, singing along to the music video and attempting to follow the truck wherever it goes.

It was also present in the background of SHINee's recent fanmeeting after their Inkigayo performance (shown below), entertaining fans before SHINee came out to greet them.

[News] SHINee's comeback with a humble attitude has captured the hearts of music representatives

Posted: 26 Mar 2012 08:22 AM PDT

According to the news report, SHINee went to each and every waiting room of other artistes to give them their signed cds and greet them. Even the juniors and newbie-juniors. So the media and other related personnel are praising them for having a modest attitude. And that upon seeing SHINee go to them first, the juniors feel more at ease with SHINee. (t/n: as in like, cos they are friendly and doesnt put on airs)

The reporter also mentioned that this seems like it is not unrelated to SM Entertainment's personality education (t/n: so they're saying it IS related to SM Ent.'s education, am i right? lol). SHINee is personally practising the old saying - 'The boughs that bear most hang lowest.'

[NEWS] Gayoon: "The first time I've cried in a TV station"

Posted: 26 Mar 2012 06:47 AM PDT

In a recent interview with Vogue Girl, Gayoon opens up about her broadcast incident on Inkigayo during her performance with Mario.

Gayoon says, "Many unexpected accidents have happened, just recently I had one myself. I was scheduled for a broadcast just two days after Music Bank in Paris, but I only received the lyrics and music a day before the performance. I didn't have sufficient practice. The day of the accident was the first time I've cried in a TV station since my debut 3 years ago. As 4minute's main vocal, I was worried that people would misjudge our group's singing skills because of me."
