10cm’s Kwon Jung Yeol talks about featuring in Byul’s “Cute”

Posted: 03 Nov 2012 02:39 AM PDT

10cm‘s vocalist Kwon Jung Yeol talked about featuring in Byul‘s latest song.

He revealed, “I featured in Byul’s new song ‘Cute‘ last month, but that song is doing better on charts than our songs right now. There’s actually a funny story about how I came to feature in her song. HaHa hyung called me early in the morning and said, ‘You know your sister-in-law is releasing an album in October, right?’ He asked me to feature in her album. I wanted to refuse because our own album was coming out in October, but he kept asking me, so I did.

Kwon Jung Yeol went on, “When I feature in songs of friends, I don’t take money. I do it because of our friendship. But since ‘Cute’ did really well, shouldn’t HaHa hyung give me something? HaHa hyung bought me meat once and doesn’t even contact me much anymore.

He laughed and continued, “But it was really fun to record ‘Cute’. Since the song did so well, I don’t think I have to pay them newlyweds money at their wedding.

A wedding information company performed a survey among 534 unmarried woman about the top male contestants of ‘Superstar K4‘.

Those polled cited Jung Joon Young’s great looks and “4th dimensional bad guy charm,” while Roy Kim was chosen because women thought “it would be possible to have a stable life after marriage” and because “he’s perfect in terms of family, ability, and looks.

On the other hand, Jung Joon Young took last place in the poll (with 8.2%) that asked the women who they could see themselves marrying. Roy Kim, however, also took 2nd place as the ‘Superstar K4′ contestant women would like to date (27.3%).

The wedding company explained, “Recently, unmarried women have been emphasizing on looks when it comes to dating, but when considering marriage, they want a man who’s capable. Roy Kim and Kim Jung Hwan are the ideal types to date and marry.

Shinsadong Tiger reveals why he gave up on becoming a singer

Posted: 02 Nov 2012 11:37 PM PDT

Shinsadong Tiger revealed the story behind why he had given up on being a singer on ‘Person Q‘.

He began, “When I was 21, I once went into the recording studio to record as a singer. But as always, I just did the chores. Even though I should have been in the center of the recording studio directing the recording, it ended with me just doing everyone’s chores and the recording session had ended before I even got to record. Everyone else directed, and I cleaned up the pet dogs’ droppings.

He further revealed, “There were times when my songs would be released under someone else’s name. I thought, ‘Do I have to do this? Do I really have to go through this? Should I continue on? Then this is too hard.’

Although he folded his dreams of becoming a singer, he decided to use his musical talents in a different way and ended up writing some of the biggest hits for many of today’s popular idol groups, becoming one of the top composers in the Korean music scene.
