[NEWS] Yoochun, Grows Stronger With “Rooftop Prince” … “Shining Acting Skills”!

Posted: 26 May 2012 08:28 AM PDT

Overcoming his sadness, JYJ member Park Yoochun's acting shone till the end.

In the SBS drama "Rooftop Prince", the "Sugar cube" couple Lee Gak (Park Yoochun) and Park Ha (Han Jimin) share an emotional love that crosses through 300 years, and ended on 24 May.

The strict image of the crown prince from the Joseon era, the happy image in the modern day where he works hard to deal with society, and the tender image during his romantic moments with Park Ha, Yoochun displays various charms in his role, showing an even more mature image that helped drive the atmosphere of the drama.

Yoochun's role as Lee Gak is in harmony with his previous characters in KBS 2TV's "Sungkyunkwan Scandal" and MBC's "Miss Ripley", and he, who is well loved by the viewers, has expressed various characters well. With the unique nature of a Time slip, he had to move back and forth between a period drama and modern drama, and he performed both roles perfectly in a fresh and interesting manner.

Also, despite the the difficult period at the beginning of the drama where time was tight and his dearest father had left the world, he held it in and performed passionately, shining even brighter. During then, Yoochun, who returned to the set of "Rooftop Prince" earlier than expected to continue shooting, had thought of the fans, viewers, the staff who were working hard and felt that he could not wait any longer.

In the middle of filming, Yoochun had tweeted on his personal account, with the message "Father, I want to meet you. So much so that I'm going crazy"*, worrying the fans, and recently he tweeted, "These last few days of filming will feel longer but go by faster than any other day. Rooftop Prince is a production that gave me sorrow and joy… and has made me a stronger person," showing that he has become stronger.

In the midst of a busy schedule, he was also faced with the crisis of a traffic accident. Early this month, Yoochun met with a traffic accident while travelling to his shooting location, and said that he felt pain in his neck and waist, but due to his tight schedule, he did not go to the hospital and continued filming, which shocked everyone around him.

Even though he went through difficult trials, Yoochun expressed his own role very well, making "Rooftop Prince" shine even brighter.

Idol groups 2NE1, BEAST and T-ara who are always strong on the music charts will be making their comebacks after each other from the end of June till early July. Towards this, the entertainment industry is  already all nervous for these comebacks.

To win the #1 spot of the summer market, the industry are giving lots of attention in their comebacks dates and concepts.  If 2NE1, Beast, and T-ara were to dominate the #1 spot again, then other singers have to avoid these "#1 dangerous idols"

Among boys idol groups, BEAST is one  group that does considerably well on music charts. Last year, BEAST, who was successful on the charts with "On Rainy Days" for quite some time, have achieved good results in both dance and ballad songs as a male group. Together with its solid fanbase, BEAST managed to rise and become one of the top groups. Currently, BEAST is finishing some last touches on their songs, and will be making a comeback soon at the end of June.

One of the representatives expressed,  "Early June we will  have Big Bang and Wonder Girls' comeback, then it will be followed by 2NE1, BEAST and T-ara, there will be a strong movement on the charts, June to July comebacks will not be easy".

New member of Dal Shabet: Woo-hee [Happy Face Entertainment]

Just one day after the leader of K-pop group Dal Shabet, Viki, called it quits, Happy Face Entertainment announced that a new member has been recruited as a replacement.

Pictures of Woo-hee were also distributed by the agency in which she was wearing an elegant white dress.

"I'm so excited to become the new member of Dal Shabet as I'm a big fan of the group," said Woo-hee. "I'm a little worried though as I have some big shoes to fill in Viki's absence. All the members have been so kind to me and I'll give it my best."

[NEWS] Kim Jang-hoon on brink of bankruptcy

Posted: 26 May 2012 05:50 AM PDT

Singer Kim Jang-hoon, an outspoken activist for "comfort women," a euphemistic reference to Korean women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military, and Korea's claim over Dokdo islets, is on the brink of bankruptcy.

Kim's agency announced yesterday that the star is in financial trouble because he is committed to too many causes.

"In order to raise enough money for the upcoming '8.15 Dokdo Crossing' project as well as another donation to give out rice to more than 1.2 million people, Kim will have to make his rounds at club and adult venues around the country," said a representative from Kim's agency.

Despite the fact that Kim spent most of this month taking part in 30 different events where he was asked to perform, his expenses are thought to outweigh his earnings from appearing at the functions.

The agency representative said that Kim's debt amounts to some 100 million won ($592,808) at the moment.

[NEWS] Comparison of Rookie Groups!

Posted: 26 May 2012 05:47 AM PDT

Even if idol groups pour out to the point where you get sick of them, the ones who will make it will eventually stand out.

So many idol groups are being sent out, one after another, to the point that certainly the member names, but also the team names are hard to remember. It is a situation where the idol market is being over-flooded a little too quickly.

Currently, the music industry is returning the focus to idols, so producers and officials trying to hitchhike on this trend are moving fast. This is because they must send out rookies that can face the popular artists as soon as possible. Fortunately, it is full and overflowing with hopefuls dreaming to become idols. Out of these, they choose ones that seem sufficient and hurriedly form idol groups to make a product, but the probability of success is not very high.

The reason is that you can find them in many places. To release a product even just a day faster, some that don't even have sufficient skills are being sent out, so live or performance ability is significantly dropping, so this cannot satisfy the demands of the population, making it common for these idols to be ignored. Not only this, but because so many artists are being spilled out, it is difficult to tell them apart. The majority are just left at that, nothing more or nothing less

Also, you cannot ignore the power of large-scale agencies. If a group is born within an idol's company that already has a strong grip on the music industry as of now, interest naturally follows. Because they have the advantage of the help from the senior idols already promoting, confidence naturally comes to them, and on top of that, it makes you place your anticipation on them. Because of this, excluding the few idols countable on our fingers, the majority of idols don't even have to chance to stand on a proper stage and must disappear without a sound.

However, within this situation, there are some that stand out. Combining the skill of capturing fans' hearts and the heavy armor of a unique charm that is different from others, these who have bravely challenged the music industry are gathering the interest of the population. The representative names are EXO-K, B.A.P, JJ Project, and Ailee.

First, Ailee, through last year's Chuseok special broadcast 'Singer and Trainee,' let herself be known as Wheesung's student and with her powerful vocals and perfect performances, gathered popularity. Shortly after the debut, she put her name up as a runner-up for first place on a music program and secured a permanent spot in the program 'Immortal Song,' where the aristocracy of singers are gathered. As this was a special case for a rookie, it was a source for celebration.

EXO-K and B.A.P also draw eyes, as expected. First of all, EXO-K drew much interest as a group made by what is picked as the nation's greatest large agency, SM Entertainment. Also, they drew anticipation through a new system of promoting in both Korea and China with what they call their twin group, EXO-M. They are showing performances that do not disappoint the expectations of female fans. Talent is talent, but also the flawless visuals played a big role in raising their popularity. Especially as the next leaders in K-Pop following TVXQ, SuperJunior, Girl's Generation, and SHINee, they are receiving much anticipation.

Next, B.A.P is in the same likelihood. With their powerful performances that senior idols that could not even attempt to try, they caused shivers to go down people's spines. Out of these, the role of 17-year Zelo, who is said to be the youngest of male idols, stands out. Pulling off a rap that is so fast that it is called 'LTE rap,' he is showing a side that makes it hard to believe that he is still in his teens. Along with this, they have captured fans' hearts with their high-level performances full of charisma, using sprays, etc.

Here, news that a new big-issue rookie is coming forth is making existing idols nervous. Recently, JYP Entertainment revealed that they would display the most enjoyable project in history, JJ Project, and released teasers. JJ Project is made up of JB and Jr, who came out in 'Dream High2.' They revealed their faces and names early, and as much as they confirmed their potential to become singers within the drama, fans and officials will put much anticipation on them.

Indeed, out of these pouring idols, who will properly rise high to the top is an issue that receives much of our attention.
