Super Junior’s Ryeowook is an expert when it comes to playing hard to get + possible World Tour in 2012?

Posted: 09 Mar 2012 08:33 AM PST

Super Junior‘s Ryeowook was revealed to be a pro when it came to playing hard to get.

Super Junior’s Sungmin and Ryeowook served as guests on a recent airing of SBS MTV‘s ‘Studio C‘.

From the get-go, the Mighty Mouth MC’s persistently began asking the boys about their first loves, as well as their past dating experiences.

Guys like these who seem well-mannered and sensitive can actually be the coldest kind of ‘bad guys’,” he said.

Hearing this, Sungmin remarked that not only was Ryeowook one of the ‘bad guys’, he was an expert when it came to playing hard to get.

The surprised MCs could not hold back their shock and Ryeowook continued, “I play hard to get not only when it comes to dating, but with my fellow Super Junior members as well.”

But Sungmin shook his head, his response suggesting that this was the first time he was hearing this.

Seeing his reaction, Ryeowook remarked, “The people who I play hard to get with don’t realize I’m doing it. Think about it, I did it about a month ago,” which caused Sungmin to admit, “Oh yeah… you did.”

The boys also talked about a possible World Tour in 2012. Besides just a one off concert in Paris, Ryeowook says they’re planning to hold a world tour in 2012 and will travel the globe visiting Australia, London, America, South America, and China. Additionally, a new Super Junior album is scheduled to be released in the second half of 2012.

Big Bang‘s Seungri shared his thoughts on the group’s scandals and allegations which took place last year.

On SBSBig Bang Comeback Show – ALIVE BIG BANG‘ that aired on March 9th, Seungri admitted, “To be honest, the five us of did not have good relationships with one another even until we promoted “Tonight” last year. It would be more accurate to say that we were awkward.

He continued, “All the members wanted to have their own individual promotions. Each of us thought we could make it on our own. Taeyang and I wanted to release solo albums, T.O.P hyung wanted to film movies and dramas, while G-Dragon dreamed of becoming a producer.”

But when news of Daesung‘s accident and G-Dragon’s marijuana allegations broke out, it served as a good opportunity for the five members to grow closer. “We realized how quickly Big Bang could fall apart, and the five of us grouped as a team again. We encouraged each other, and wanted to remain strong.”

Meanwhile, Seungri along with the rest of the Big Bang members held their comeback concert at the Gymnastic Stadium at Olympic Park in Seoul March 2nd through the 4th.

Hollywood to remake ‘Man from Nowhere’

Posted: 09 Mar 2012 02:36 AM PST


The 2010 Korean blockbuster movie, ‘Man From Nowhere‘ which starred actor Won Bin will be remade in the States.

On March 8th, Deadline (Hollywood news provider) announced that Shawn Christensen who is famous for writing the script of Hollywood movie, ‘Abduction‘ has been tapped to write the screenplay for the remake of ‘Man from Nowhere’ targeted to American audiences.

According to Deadline, “Dimension Films has purchased the full licensing rights to reproduce the movie from CJ Entertainment.  Producer Bob Weinstein read the script for the movie and requested Shawn Christensen to adapt the original script to American standards.”

From a recent interview on the 9th with TV Report, CJ Entertainment revealed, “It’s true that we sold licensing rights to Dimension.  However, we are still deciding whether to co-produce the remake or not.  I think we will have good news soon.”

For those who haven’t seen the movie, ‘Man from Nowhere’ is about a former secret agent who fights a mob of gangsters to save a young kidnapped girl.

As a die-hard fan of the movie, I can guarantee that the remake will never be as epic as the original, but I will hope for the best.

Check out one of the highlight action scenes in ‘Man from Nowhere’ below!

Lee Hongki offered a starring role in a movie

Posted: 08 Mar 2012 11:56 PM PST

Recently, an entertainment associate told OSEN that “F.T. Island‘s Lee Hongki was offered a starring role for a rock band movie.”

And continued to say, “The movie he was offered a role in will tell the story of a once famous band, and will be directed by Nam Taec Su. From what I know, this movie will be released not only in Korea but in Japan also.”

Lee Hongki‘s agency confirmed that the star had indeed received the offer, stating, “It’s true Lee Hongki received the offer for the movie, but due to schedule conflicts, it seems it’ll be difficult for him to accept due to his busy schedule.”

Hongki has been in various dramas already, including the very famous SBS‘s ‘You’re Beautiful’, and had fans anticipating his next role. It’s a shame that he may have to turn down this role, but hopefully we’ll see him back as an actor once more in the near future!

Big Bang’s ‘Alive’ charts on the Billboard 200

Posted: 08 Mar 2012 11:33 PM PST

Big Bang‘s fabulous five has made another mark on K-pop history.

On March 9th, Billboard published the new weekly charts for the U.S. Billboard 200. On this chart, Big Bang’s recent Korean mini-album ‘Alive’ charted at number 150. This record is significant in that the Billboard 200 is known as the definitive chart for album sales in the United States.

This accomplishment is all the more impressive when it is taken into account that ‘Alive’ is a Korean language album that had absolutely no promotions in the United States. On March in 2009, BoA‘s English language album ‘BoA’ charted at number 127 on the Billboard 200, but this is the first time that marks the ranking of a Korean album on the chart.

In related news, the group also ranked at number 4 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Furthermore, their songs ‘Blue‘ , ‘Love Dust‘ and, ‘Fantastic Baby‘ all charted on the top three spots of Billboard’s Korea K-pop Hot 100 chart.
