Posted: 29 Mar 2012 08:43 AM PDT

After School member Juyeon posted a new message on their blog. She updated their blog on March 28th and the blog title is "This is Juyeon, thank you so much for your messages!"

Juyeon said that she read all the messages that fans sent her. She was so happy to receive it all. 

In the photo that was uploaded on their blog, Juyeon has an icing on her cheek and she said that Kahi was the one who put it. Seems Kahi is making fun of her.

Read her blog update below.

Hello to all the Playgirlz Japan, this is Juyeon!
On March 19th, my birthday, I had loads of things that make me happy!
The messages you all sent me through the fan club, I read them all~♪
(I didn't want to but, because some kanji were difficult to me I got helped by the staff members who read those to me…)
(* Translator's Note: She means that she wanted to read them all by herself but, because she's still learning and cannot read all the kanji, she needed help from the staff)
Thank you very much!
I was flattered by the great affection you all have for me!
You were all worried for my health, you told me you check the episodes of the TV shows I do in Korea, etc. I enjoyed reading those.
And also I got a surprise from the staff members who prepared a cake for me.
While we were in the middle of practice for the tour, the lights suddenly went off, it caught me by surprise, and in the middle of the dark the lighted candles of the cake appeared!
It was incredibly bright and beautiful!
Can you see the cream that Kahi-san put on my cheek as a prank? (*^^*)
I really love you all!
Juyeon, I will work even harder!!!
by Juyeon.
Fans may be happy now because it is confirmed that Juyeon read all their messages. In addition, After School will be having their first solo tour in Japan on April 27th at Zepp Tokyo.

[News] SHINee Opens Up on Fasting Rumors & Extra Member!

Posted: 29 Mar 2012 08:35 AM PDT

The SHINee members opened up on some funny rumors they had heard about themselves through their handwritten resumes. The members wrote out their own resumes for the live open studio broadcast of Mnet's Wide Entertainment News on March 29. 

In the resume, they had to write down basic information about themselves, a self-introduction, interests, strengths, weaknesses and rumors. Their answers for the weirdest rumors they've heard and their explanations were especially entertaining.

Key and Onew answered, 'Fasting rumors' and 'Don't you ever eat? Yes, we do eat'. Minho and Jonghyun answered calmly, 'Not much' and 'There's no need to explain rumors', while member Taemin wrote, 'That SHINee has six members'.

SHINee will be appearing in the open studio located in the first floor of the CJ E&M Center in Seoul. The members will talk about their resumes and answer questions in the Talk Bingo section.

As the open studio is literally open to the public and only has a glass wall separating the stars from the fans, many fans usually crowd around to see their stars when there is a shoot. Many are looking forward to seeing how many fans will gather outside to see SHINee.

SHINee recently made a comeback with its new mini album Sherlock, and after appearing in Wide Entertainment News, it will perform for M Countdown.

Tune in to find out what those rumors are all about!

Rookie idol year B1A4 has made their ambitious comeback with the release of their first full-length album IGNITION. Even though they have yet to debut for a year, a self-made song by a member in the group has been decided to be the title song, earning them the title of "musical-dols".

B1A4; a group of young men in their early 20s have shown the essence of what cheerful energy is. Never ending firm determination and refreshing laughter are what makes them significantly different of the idol groups of the same age group. Causing huge numbers of female students to gather at broadcast stations, those are the reasons why they are emerging as the new rising idol group.

Their title song this time "Baby I'm Sorry" is personally created by Jinyoung, who has been self-taught composing since middle school. The song was first heard by the members, then recommended to the company to be title song.

"Before this, I made two tracks that made it into our albums. I am really happy that this time, it become our title song. But it is not just my credit, but the members all participated in the composing, writing and editing in general. We once said that we wanted to show our capabilities, and release a full-length album. We were upset with the biased judgments of being an idol group." (Jinyoung)

Standing out with his bright voice, Jinyoung spreads his positive energy to the group. Even with the pressure of being alongside a variety of other idol groups, they can proudly say that "B1A4 will do well". The reason for such a guarantee is of course, their musical capabilities.

"When you hear the songs that Jinyoung hyung writes, you get the feeling that he wrote it so that it would match our tones. His lyrics are also fresh and bright, showing that he lived well as a 22 year-old young man. In real life, that's how his personality is like. He gives his strength, with his constant smiles while saying that everything will turn out well. The members also work really hard. In our previous promotions, we only showed our cute sides. This time, we are trying to reinvent ourselves as mature men, and more than anything we paid more attention towards the music." (Baro)

The second reason why they are different from others is because of teamwork. All the members were born in the provinces, and there is a friendly atmosphere.

"Ever since we were trainees, we frequently heard that when people become famous they change. We have been careful of that. Among us, Sandeul who has changed the most received a contract even before we debuted. (laugh)" (CNU)

"Our team's atmosphere makes a person be a loss for words. Compared to a very positive Jinyoung hyung, CNU hyung is more realistic. They balance each other out. There is no way we can fight either. We take some time out on Saturdays to chat together. If there are some problems, we talk it out from midnight till 9am the next morning. At first we get angry, but eventually there is no more strength to be angry. (laugh)." (Sandeul)

B1A4's goal is to achieve first place on a music program this year. In order to achieve this goal, they are ready to run without resting.

"Every year we set new goals. This year, we really want to achieve first place. As our mindsets are all positive, we believe that everything will turn out well. (laugh) We will work really hard. Please watch us!" (Jinyoung)
