"Junjin, “I became a singer in order to find my birth mother”" plus 24 more


Junjin, “I became a singer in order to find my birth mother”

Posted: 13 Oct 2012 08:56 AM PDT


Shinhwa's Junjin broke into tears as he talked about his longing for his birth mother, on the 9th October episode of KBS2′s "Yeo Yoo Man Man". During the interview, he revealed that he had wanted to be a singer so that he could find his birth mother.

In a surprise segment for Charlie Park, who was the guest for the episode, Junjin said, "As I grew older, I resented my father and felt bitter about why I had to live under such circumstances."

"Instead of my mother, I lived with my grandmother. And even though my grandmother became like a mother to me, I still yearned for my mother."

"I started out to become a dance choreographer but when I saw H.O.T on TV, I thought 'If I appeared on TV, I may be able to find my mother'. And so I became a singer instead."

SHINee performs "Dazzling Girl' on Happy Music

Posted: 13 Oct 2012 07:59 AM PDT


SHINee performed their new song Dazzling Girl on Happy Music,check out their adorable performance below

SHINee talks about 'Dazzling Girl' and favorite dramas with Excite!

Posted: 13 Oct 2012 07:53 AM PDT


Overflowing with fresh charisma - their first original Japanese tune is out!

'Dazzling Girl' is your first original Japanese single release.
Jonghyun: This time, it's not just the music that's from Japan, but our clothing, music video staff, and make-up artists as well, so it feels as though we're working in a totally new environment. We have gotten a lot of good experience from it. We hope to try it once more if given the opportunity again.

The piano melody and dance beats in 'Dazzling Girlcompliment each other. It's a refreshing, happy tune.
Taemin: It's a really happy song. In relation to its title, I think it's a perfect melody to display the emotion of the skipping heartbeat. The tempo is quite fast, so we wonder if everyone will also feel that very skip of their heartbeat while they listen to our music.

The lyrics 'Dazzling Girl' = 'A girl who dazzles' and it carries the excitement of finally turning into your dream. What do you think of it personally?
Taemin: I have the same impression of the lyrics and the melody. 'Dazzling Girl' means a girl who 'shines bright', and the lyrics express having our first love with that girl, so we will sing it with a bright attitude.
Jonghyun: There's a line which goes "Is this it? Is this love?" so I decided to express the honest emotion of having met the girl and getting that ecstatic feeling.
Key: This time, we managed to work out and sing in English and Japanese without having much knowledge of the languages. It's a happy rhythm where Minho and I rapped the part of "Yes, I only belong to you. Boom boom boom pow!!" It's my favorite phrase.

What's the main point of the dance?
Onew: The way when we bounce and hop around is very memorable for me.
Taemin: There are a lot of memorable points for me, so it's a lot easier to remember the whole thing. The choreography is interesting and it goes perfectly well with the lyrics. It's also the first time we've collaborated with the Japanese dance team s**t kingz but we've learned a lot from them since it's the way we usually express ourselves and the choreography are clearly different.

What is your favorite scene from the music video?
Onew: When we put together an outfit for the girl, took her photos and had her drawn out in several different pretty poses. Each member had different roles, so please look forward to it.

This is in regards to the lyrics. In each of your minds, who exactly is your 'Dazzling Girl' = 'A girl who dazzles'?
Jonghyun: A girl with a beautiful heart.
Taemin: This is a question about our ideal types, right? Hmmm, I guess a girl who makes my heart skip a beat the first time we meet.
Onew: A girl who makes me fall in love at first sight and girls who have pretty hands.
Key: Someone who doesn't make a lot of noise when we're together (laughs).

(laughs) Moving on, the next song 'Run With Me' has a beautiful melody with a mid-fast tempo.
Jonghyun: The melody for this is really beautiful and the sound is extremely fresh. I get good vibes whenever I listen to it.

The lyrics speak to a weak person to reach out for your hand and the two of you will step into the future. What is your personal opinion on it?
Jonghyun: There's a phrase that goes "Take my hand, run run run with me," but I envision basically anyone when they are in a sticky situation. For us, we get through tough times with the support of our families and friends. We definitely hope that our song will be everyone's support.

Let's change the topic. Please tell us what drama or game you are into these days.
Taemin: I really like the show Minho acted in before called 'Salamander Guru and The Shadows'.
Key: I've been watching the American drama 'Desperate Housewives'.
Minho: (The soccer game) Winning Eleven! Forever 'Winning Eleven'! (laughs)
Jonghyun: I like Minho's drama 'For You In Full Blossom'. It's really interesting. Waiting for it each week is a really long time (laughs).

Minho is starring in 'For You In Full Blossom', so could we hear of some problems or memorable moments from the episodes?
Minho: I was really nervous since it's my first main role. Although I had problems with my acting, I still tried and persevered. The hot summer was spent in hotter conditions. The hardest part was actually befriending the dog. There were scenes in the drama where I'd be with the dog. I guess the hardest thing is to be good friends with animals (laughs).

Did the members say anything after watching the drama?
Minho: Everyone watched it and said it was really interesting. I was glad to be praised for my acting. But I still get comments of how "embarrassing" it is occasionally (laughs).

Do you have anything to say after watching Minho's drama?
Taemin: He's really handsome (laughs).
Onew: It's like seeing the real Minho who gives off a feeling of stability (laughs).
Jonghyun: Minho looks really good on camera (laughs). Since we also know the mischievous Minho, we laughed at quite a lot. But he has been practicing passionately and I've been wondering if he'll continue to mature as he goes into the line of actors.

Then if all of SHINee were to act in a school drama, who will get which character role?
Jonghyun: Minho would be that all-around athletic jock. Taemin would be the school's most popular kid. I'd be the guy in the school band.
Taemin: If I were to play the cute student, it'd be what everyone expected so it wouldn't be interesting. That's why I hope I'd get a interesting or impressionable character.
Onew: I think I will get the dull student-teacher role in school (laughs).
Jonghyun: Key seems like he'll fit the role of an art teacher (laughs).

(laughs) Lastly, do you have any messages for the Japanese fans who listen to 'Dazzling Girl'?
Taemin: We hope that everyone will love 'Dazzling Girl' more as the date approaches. We will do our best to bring our great music to everyone, so please support the growing SHINee. We look forward to meeting everyone at our next live!

Seungho & G.O Messages for “Gwanghwamun Sonata” Musical

Posted: 13 Oct 2012 07:13 AM PDT

MBLAQ's Seungho & G.O Messages for "Gwanghwamun Sonata" Musical

Seungho (MBLAQ) (playing Kang Hyun Woo)
■My enthusiasm towards performing in "Gwanghwamun Sonata"
I am taking the challenge of a musical for the first time. I am nervous and on the other hand, I also have a lot of things to worry about. (To me) it is the first piece of work, so I will do my best. I hope it will be a musical that is awesome and touching.

■Message to Japanese fans
I am always thankful to the Japanese A+ (MBLAQ's official fanclub) who gave us a lot of interest and love when we visited Japan for concerts and the like. I think this musical will become everyone's memory and move you. ^^


G.O (MBLAQ)(playing Kang Hyun Woo)

■My enthusiasm towards performing in "Gwanghwamun Sonata"
I have been very interested in musicals, but I could not bring out the courage to take the challenge.

Through Immortal Song I deeply felt the power of musical actors and realized what I myself am lacking. At that time the offer to perform in "Gwanghwamun Sonata" came.

As "Gwanghwamun Sonata" being a production highly praised among musical actors, since it has been performed by famous actors, my excitement took the lead rather than my fear and I decided to participate.

I am lacking in a lot of areas, but I am very happy that I get to challenge in a new field. "Happy stress," this is the phrase that expresses my current feeling accurately.
I will try my best and show you a good appearance.

■Message to Japanese fans
I have deep emotions that I am not meeting you in album activities and concert stages but a musical.
I think I want to show you a good appearance in the musical as much as our long hiatus in Japan.
Please have a lot of anticipation and interest.

PART 4: B1A4, OUR INNERMOST FEELINGS!

Posted: 13 Oct 2012 04:50 AM PDT


After debuting last year with their first album Let's Fly and a fresh youthful image, they have successfully secured themselves with 110,000 hardcore fans with short gaps in between their successive albums. Within 1 year, they have been receiving an unusual amount of unconditional love much like popular idol groups. B1A4 consists of 1 member with blood type B and 4 members with blood type A.

In the time that their column was published, it has received support from countless fans. That's why B1A4 is thrilled. For the last part (Part 4), we will progress in the format of a talk time for the members. In many interviews they answered that their hobby was to chit chtat. Indeed they do not disappoint us. If nobody intervenes them, their chit-chat might have continued all night long. We will now begin their last story – a little more serious than just chit-chat.

To listen to Part 4 with the theme "B1A4′s innermost feelings", I visited their practice room late at night. The 5 young men had already gathered around on the floor, keenly engaged in their conversation. Honestly, it would be correct to say that they are between young men and boys – because of their fresh-boy like looks that still remain. They were busy laughing at insignificant stories like teenage girls, even bickering while telling their stories. However, among these boys none of them were careless about any story.

It's time to change the atmosphere to a serious one and spill out the stories from their heart which they couldn't share. The members change their sitting positions the moment I finish talking. The playful faces are gone, and replaced with seriousness. I expressed the hyungs to begin first, but against one's expectations it was Gongchan to open his mouth first. Softly and slowly, Gongchan started his story about his kidney surgery that happened last July. And other members listened carefully to him.

Softly and slowly, Gongchan started his story about his kidney surgery that happened last July. And other members listened carefully to him.


CNU: I always feel I'm fortunate that I am not a solo artist.
To what CNU said all the members agree enthusiastically repeating 'let's not separate' and narrowed the space between themselves. In that moment, the seriousness in the air vanished. Without any order, they gathered their hands together and shouted 'fighting'. That wasn't all. They gathered their feet together and shouted 'fighting'. And even that wasn't enough – they gathered their elbows, heads and shouted 'fighting'.

They laughed till they couldn't breathe while lying on the floor, maybe because they were also embarrassed by how other people were looking on. All of them had very flushed faces. These guys are really overflowing with fighting spirits.
Indeed, it was leader Jinyoung who settled the scattered atmosphere. He then continued the talk.

Jinyoung: This is what I think. It might not only be me, the others could feel the same too but when one of the members have individual schedules, I feel very proud. And I have faith that he'll do well than any other person.
Baro: That's right. Honestly after watching Sandeul's musical performance, I was really proud to have him as my friend. I couldn't control my emotions when Sandeul made his first appearance on stage.
Sandeul: I heard that the members cried after the performance. After hearing that, I was really touched instead. I should have thanked them right away during that time but I couldn't tell them. I think it's because I'm a guy from Kyungsang-do ah… I felt shy about expressing it. Since I couldn't express it, there is a regretful heart.
Jinyoung: No no. We all know, even if you don't say it out.
Baro: I really like it because our team doesn't get jealous even if one of us does well. Instead we feel proud and congratulate him.

It is a given emotion to feel jealous if another person does well but these guys are too busy taking care of each other admist all that. This time Sandeul opened his mouth.

Sandeul: I was recently experiencing a slump. When I couldn't think well of many things including music, I fell into a slump. Despite thinking "let's just do it how I used to do it" and "it would somehow work if I do it my way", I felt that something kept on falling out. The pressure was increasing. At that time, members talked to me a lot but honestly during that time none of what they said hit me. I think it was a bit hard to accept that I was wrong. I was struggling because I was frustrated and it became a vicious circle because nothing was turning out the way I wanted them to. I'm saying this only now but what I was most thankful about was that my members trusted me even then. To do things my way. After sensing it with my heart, I was honestly sorry to my members too and I didn't know what to do. From then I thought I should do everything to change.



Jinyoung: I knew that Sandeul wasn't accepting what we said because of his strong pride. But I also knew that someday he would overcome it by himself and return. So without being impatient, I believed and waited for him.
CNU: I read it somewhere but they said that the secret behind Shinhwa staying together for a long time was to become fans of each other. Those words really touched me. Without accepting the strong points of each members and respecting each other, we can't stay together for long. Respecting and loving that person as if we are fans. I believe we could stay together as long as Shinhwa if we do it that way. Nobody is perfect and everyone lacks in something some way or other but because we are a team we will correct and fill up the flaws.
Baro: I'm a fan of everyone seriously~ Everyone has different charms and their strong points are what I don't have so even if I look at you just as a person and not as our member you guys are really cool.

B1A4 continued their talk. These boys don't wish for many things. To just take care of each other like now. And to perform on stage for a long time for the fans who support such B1A4.

B1A4: We are thankful to our fans who give us overflowing love. We will work hard to become B1A4 who does not go against your anticipations. You'll continue to love us right? B1A4 fighting! Even BANAs fighting! And fighting to all readers who read this article. Thank you for reading B1A4′s Star Column.
At first when I met them they had the looks of fresh boys, but I think the more you get to know them you realize that they are like an extract. Or that could just be my personal feeling. I hope they don't lose what they have in their hearts right now and become singers who increase and develop.

Hello to all readers reading B1A4′s Star Column. This is B1A4!! How was the Star Column? We wanted to share our new side and honest stories which we never revealed before. These were the stories that we completed every episode after worrying and discussing together at our practicing room.

We are very sad for not being able to share all the stories that we wanted to share with you because of our lacking writing skills but we hope you guys enjoyed them. While writing for Star Column we got to think again about our minds that we had during our trainee days, thoughts about our members and thoughts on the team's future. It was a very meaningful time for us.
If we get this opportunity again we will return with more enjoyable stories. And right now we are preparing for our new album and our first concert in December so please anticipate~ Thank you!!
