[NEWS] Lee Jongsuk, Chosen as 'Inkigayo' MC that will fill in for IU

Posted: 19 May 2012 08:00 AM PDT


Actor Lee Jongsuk was chosen as a MC on SBS 'Inkigayo'.

Starting from the June 3rd, Lee Jongsuk will become a MC for 'Inkigayo', joining girl group Kara's Goo Hara and Nicole. The current MC, IU, will have a difficulty appearing on 'Inkigayo' due to her concert schedule, thus the producers decided to have Lee Jongsuk fill in during IU's absence.

After IU's 6 weeks hiatus, it seem like Lee Jongsuk will continue to be a MC on 'Inkigayo'. After IU returns, it would be hard for Hara and Nicole to MC due to Kara's Japanese activities. As a result, it is predicted that there will be talks to find another female MC to work along with Lee Jongsuk.

[NEWS] Davichi shows loyalty to old friend

Posted: 19 May 2012 07:30 AM PDT


Female singing duo Davichi has shown its allegiance to friend and composer Jo Young-soo by agreeing to sing for his new album free of charge.

The girl group was featured in the single "A Night like This" on Jo's digital album "All Star," which was released online yesterday. The song also features newbie group 2Bic.

This isn't the first time that Davichi has performed in the composer's songs.

Back in 2008 and 2010, the duo also recorded songs for the composer, who strongly supported the group when it debuted in 2008.

When Davichi was starting out, Jo composed the song "Love and War" for the duo, and it later became a huge hit.

The girls were also set to perform in the United States earlier this year along with T-ara, which belongs to the same agency. But visa problems forced the cancellation of the event, called "K-pop Power & Beauty," that was to be held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.

[NEWS] Yu-ri of Girls' Generation Shines in TV Drama 'Fashion King

Posted: 19 May 2012 07:00 AM PDT


All nine members of Girls' Generation have sweated and toiled to give fans what they want since they debuted five years ago, which helps explain the girl group's mammoth popularity, and Yu-ri is seen as one of its hardest-working members.

Yu-ri, who is currently starring in the SBS drama "Fashion King," said she has always harbored ambitions of being not just a singer but an actress.

"Even when I was a trainee some 10 years ago, I always wanted to act," Yu-ri said. "I took acting lessons and read many scenarios," she added.

"I'm so happy to have got this chance to act in a TV drama. I held about 10 meetings with the director before filming started. He did not know much about me and had no idea about my acting ability, so he gave me a lot of advice."

Fellow band member Yoon-a appeared in the 2008 TV drama "You Are My Destiny," while Jessica followed suit recently in "Wild Romance." This makes Yu-ri something of a late starter given her decade-long dream, and the same is true of her popularity within the band among fans, which also emerged later than most of the other members.

Each of the members has been at the center of attention at one time or another, but Yu-ri has built up her reputation gradually through hard work. SM Entertainment is notorious for its intense training program, encouraging the girls to practice from dawn till dusk to get their moves down perfectly, and Yu-ri has seemed to thrive in this environment.

Actors Yoo Ah-in, Lee Je-hoon and Shin Se-kyung, who appear on "Fashion King" with Yu-ri, are among the hottest young stars in Korea right now. They are also recognized for their acting abilities. But rather than being intimidated, Yu-ri asks them for tips and advice, and tries to learn from them.

Yu-ri's fans call her the "black pearl," partly in recognition of her dark complexion, but also because a pearl takes a long time to form within its shell -- just as Yu-ri has kept stretching herself to become a shining "jewel" among the group.

However, such hard work and endurance has now become a matter of routine for her and the other members of Girls' Generation, and this may be what has kept them at the top of their game for so long.

[NEWS] Han Ji Min Died to Save Park Yuchun in Rooftop Prince? Hidden Reversal Surprise

Posted: 19 May 2012 06:30 AM PDT


Who is exactly the main character involved in the murder of Crown Princess incident 300 years ago?

Episode 18 of SBS's "Rooftop Prince" aired on May 18th, 2012 shows that Park Ha pushes away Lee Gak (Park Yuchun) who is about to be hit by Yong Tae Moo (Lee Tae Sung), and plunged into the crisis of death.

The ultimate goal of Tae Moo is Lee Gak. After the evidence that he is related to the death of president Yeo was discovered, Tae Moo said, "Lee Gak must die," and set up a trick a Hong Se Na (Jung Yoo Mi). In order to carry out the murder, Se Na uses Park Ha's mobile phone to asks Lee Gak to the reservoir.

Se Na brings along Park Ha's mobile phone and couple T-shirt to reservoir together with Tae Moo. Lee Gak chases after Se Na who is wearing the couple T-shirt in the dark. Tae Moo who found Lee Gak rushes over to him. The last scene is Park Ha, who knew the trick slightly later and come to the reservoir, stands in front of the car in order to save Lee Gak.

But there are many voices about the possibility of Se Na, instead of Park Ha, who would be hit and killed by the car. 300 years ago, at the time when Crown Princess was murdered, many viewers pointed out that the face of Crown Princess was not shown in the end, and reasoned that the person who fell into the water and drowned is not Crown Princess but Bu Yong (previous life of Park Ha).

The speculation is that at that time, Bu Yong passed away when wearing the clothes of Crown Princess. In modern times, it can be inferred that Se Na would suffered from the fate of death when wearing the clothes of Park Ha. Especially the anxious face shown by Se Na when Park Ha jumps onto the car, or through Se Na's lines which suggest that she might die, "If I died once and for all, would I be forgivven?"

Netizens who watched the broadcast said, "If Park Ha died really can not be justified," "Only Se Na died would clear off the notoriety of the so-called bad guys," "Our Lee Gak is pitiful, what to do?" "I vote for Se Na gets hit by the car while Tae Moo fell into the reservoir" and so on.

[NEWS] SJ Sungmin – SNSD Jessica: “the member whom I don’t get along well with is…”

Posted: 19 May 2012 06:00 AM PDT


In the episode of tvN's variety show "TAXI" which broadcasted on the 18th of May, Jessica and Sungmin was asked by MC Lee Yong Ja "Among all the members of your respective group, which member gets along least well with the rest?"

Jessica gave Seohyun as her answer, "The rest of the members enjoy eating snacks, hamburgers and others, but Seohyun only eats the sweet potato and persimmon that she packs herself." Sungmin then revealed, "In terms of food, our members get along really well with each other. We are not choosy when it comes to food, we have cheap taste and we eat everything that is given to us."

Sungmin then continued, "Yesung is responsible for the high notes (in our songs), so he would start to warm up his vocals early in the day. He would always do it when we are travelling to our schedules. Because everyone is really tired on most days, we would rest or sleep on our way, but when he starts practicing so loudly, we would sometimes feel really upset." Jessica then added, "Seohyun is exactly the same and she has several methods when it comes to practicing her vocals. She would turn on the music of the song that we will be singing on that day and sing along to it, but she is our baby, so it's cute."

Besides Jessica and Sungmin, f(x)'s member Luna also appeared on the program.

[NEWS] Taeyeon Reveals the Secret Behind Her Skinny Appearance!

Posted: 19 May 2012 03:45 AM PDT


Taeyeon, who has been active in the sub-unit, garnered attention after revealing the secret behind her body.
During a recent recording of SBS E!TV's "TV Cultwo Show-Talking About With Stars", the MCs asked her how she maintains her figure. She surprised everyone by replying, "I eat ramyun late at night and don't sleep afterward."
This was not the only secret behind Taeyeon's slim body. It hasn't been revealed until now, but her black strap stockings give her the illusion of "chopstick legs".
She also showed off tall stilettos that made her legs look slimmer and longer. The flashy patterns and colors on her clothes also gave her a taller and skinnier appearance.
Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun were then asked about their rumored 900 calorie diet, which had become a popular online discussion topic. The girls answered coolly, "How could you survive off of a 900 calorie diet?"

[NEWS] INFINITE’s Thoughts on Their Comeback

Posted: 19 May 2012 02:55 AM PDT


INFINITE revealed that their nervous emotions were large due to their long period of absence.

INFINITE met up with a reporter on May 18th in the waiting room of KBS 2TV 'Music Bank' and revealed their thoughts on starting promotions after a long time.

Their member, Dongwoo, said, "Because our period of absence was this long for the first time, we were really nervous and felt pressured. I was happy because I saw today that there were many fans who were waiting for us. Although we did a concert during that time as well, music broadcasts have an addictive feel to it, so I missed it and was worried that we wouldn't meet up to the expectations."

Continuing on, they explained about their title song, 'The Chaser', by adding, "To be unique, we decided to go towards a classic feel. We wanted to show the Korean-style of emotions through music. Among the recordings we've done till now, this recording was the hardest."

INFINITE released their 3rd mini album, INFINITIZE, on May 13th and made a fantastic comeback by opening a nonstop showcase in 5 cities in Korea. Their title song, 'The Chaser', is a song consisting Korean-style emotions and a refined melody. INFINITE, who seemed to be combined with both performance and skills, create stages that you cannot take your eyes off from.

INFINITE, who are doing promotions that will capture your eyes the most among other recent boy groups, will be representatives that take care of the boy group drought that's happening among female singers' promotions through their music qualities and performances that didn't disappoint and stage manner that continuously improves.

Their performance that opened twice last February at the Seoul Olympic Handball Stadium, made a record of selling out in tickets and they quickly opened an encore concert. With opening a large-scale encore concert in the Gymnastics stadium, we were able to see where INFINITE stood in the music industry. As they received a high amount of popularity in not just Korea, but Japan as well, they proved their existence by continuously opening concerts last year and this year.

Compared to the other colleagues who debuted around the same time as INFINITE, who has almost debuted for 2 years, they are showing promotions that stand out and have certainly rose up as one of the top level groups. INFINITE, who have taken place as a group that you cannot look at easily, make it seem like their rise will not die down for quite a long time.
