Kim Jaejoong, “I want to be on Running Man”

Posted: 25 Nov 2012 07:00 AM PST

Due to the fact that JYJ's Kim Jaejoong is starring in «Code Name: Jackal» with Song JiHyo, recently there have been many hoping that he could appear on «Running Man», including Jaejoong himself.

Jaejoong recently expressed in an interview: "Most actors, after their movies are released, can go on entertainment/variety programs to promote. I hope that if given the opportunity, I could appear on «Running Man» with JiHyo noona. When I see the other actors working hard to promote the movie, even doing my portion, I feel very sorry and wish I could do better," conveying his regret in not being able to appear on broadcasts.

The lawsuit between the three members of JYJ and SM Entertainment remains unresolved and as a result, JYJ are unable to go on major television music programs and variety shows.

Koala (T/N: Reporter's name): I really want to see JYJ on television, especially on «Running Man». I have a feeling they would have great onscreen chemistry with JiHyo!

Son Dam-bi Comes Out of the 'Shadows' with New Album

Posted: 25 Nov 2012 05:00 AM PST

Son Dam-bi has released her fourth mini album after a two-and-a-half-year hiatus as a singer. In the interim, she was busy expanding her horizons while appearing in TV shows including the hit MBC drama "Lights and Shadows."

Son said the release of the latest album was delayed because she has been busy shooting the TV series and demonstrating her potential as an actress.

"As it has been quite a while since I last performed, I got really nervous singing on stage again, but I soon regained my confidence," Son said. Departing from her trademark rhythmic melodies and fast beats, she came up with slower-tempo songs this time around.

"I wanted to make some songs that people can appreciate when they're in a more sentimental mood, which seem better suited to this time of year," she said.

Son also shared her secret to keeping in shape. "I do pilates and eat whatever I want, but I make up for it by exercising more," she said. "I often lose weight somehow when I prepare a new album."

Having experienced the ups and downs of life as a singer and actress since she debuted five years ago, Son said she is not afraid of facing the challenges that lie ahead.

"I'm looking forward to a number of new projects and albums that I have planned for next year. I'm not afraid of turning 30 soon as that will bring with it some new challenges. I'll just keep trying to broaden my career."

Son said she plans to build her singing career in China after she finishes promoting her album here at the end of this year.

Juniel “Benefit of IU’s effect? Complete nonsense”

Posted: 25 Nov 2012 01:30 AM PST

Cute and fresh appearance which stimulates delicate sensibility, playing guitar like a deep confession, soft and clear voice coming out from a small body. Nineteen year old, female rookie singer-songwriter Juniel (19, Real name Choi Jun Hee) named as 'Second National Sister' along with heathen uncles, has emerged as fans of romance.
On the 23rd, at Seoul, Yeouido-dong, KBS New Building open hall, in the waiting room of KBS 2TV 'Music Bank', we met Juniel and she said "I can't feel even though everyone said like that." and "Just working hard for music seems favorable to the public" tiredly with a smile.
On the 20th, Juniel released 2nd mini album '1&1′ for comeback and has gained hot responses at the same time. The title song 'Bad Man' released and the presence of climbing on top of the various real-time music charts was shown.
'Boy', 'Happy Ending', 'Oh! Happy Day', and 'Cat Day', these 4 self-composed songs entered the chart-topping and all the songs were loved equally. In particular, 'Boy', which was known to be the first song composed by Juniel at 16 years old, received great interest.
"I made quite a lot of preparations for this album. I like the songs in themselves and I found them favorable. I am trying to be very honest and do openly just when I do music. When I sing a song, I put my feelings that I want to tell into the song. Fans seem to like this point, too."
Last June debut song 'Illa Illa' is consistently loved, Juniel who is currently active at the same time with Lee Hi and Ailee, forming rivalry and fierce competition for Rookie of The Year. In priority of this year, she has obtained close to 40% of approval ratings in the first music industry award ceremony, 2012 Mnet Asian Music Awards Rookie of the Year award, speculates the situation.
However, Juniel hesitated and said "I feel good but I don't have much desire." "Because fans vote hard and cheer me, I feel pretty good. If they gave the award to me, I would receive thankfully. But award is not my purpose of my activity, so I don't have much desire. I like to write songs and have activity like this."

JUNIEL is sometimes said that she received a surprise benefit from IU's photo, but in fact she doesn't look caring about it. She said "Actually I'm so sorry for (the situation of 'IU's photo')" and denied that saying "It's complete nonsense that I go well because of that."
"In fact, I don't care about it at all. I have only this thought, "I will just keep doing music hard."
Now that Juniel is doing the music she likes, every moment is precious. She looking around silently because she walked away steadily without caring what's in someone's eyes.
"I'm just Juniel. No matter how many times I say so, everyone doesn't see me so. (laugh) If I make efforts, nicknames will disappear someday. With this thought, I'm making efforts."

Sunggyu,"Hoya, I call him hyung!"

Posted: 24 Nov 2012 09:30 PM PST

Infinite's Sunggyu "Hoya who did well in 'Reply 1997', I call him hyung"

"These days I call Hoya 'hyung'."

The member L appeared in the music video for Kim Sunggyu who's the first Infinite member to release a solo album while the other members came on the filming set to support him. Kim Sunggyu started off the solos not as an actor but as a singer, he recently revealed his burden about it during his interview with Newsen.

The member L from the same group appeared as the main character in the music video of Kim Sunggyu's title song, '60 Seconds'. When we asked him if he didn't think about being the main character since it's his solo song, he said "Truthfully, I didn't want to do it but when actually seeing it, I thought that I wanted to do it".

Kim Sunggyu said playfully "While watching the video, when I saw that I wasn't appearing much, I thought that it was a bit sad. I did think 'I wish I did it' but even if I said I wanted to do it, maybe the company wouldn't let me do so. But I still wanted to try it" and he revealed a behind the scene story "Actually, starting from when it was decided that I would release an album, L directly said he as going to appear in the music video so I didn't have the time to say I'd do it. Even if he was busy, he obstinately said he was going to do it". He then added like a unique throwaway "I'm thankful. He did well".

Infinite started individual activities for some time already. It was the birth of a new acting-dol when Hoya appeared in the drama 'Reply 1997' and got praised for it, L who's constantly acting is actually appearing in the sitcom 'What Is Mom'.

"I can't watch all of the episodes of L's sitcom but I watched the first episodes. I watched 'Reply 1997' as well and 'The Thousandth Man'. (But I couldn't see the one where I appeared in.) I don't watch all the episodes of the dramas the members appear in but I always make sure to watch the first episode. I don't know well either so I didn't give them any acting advices but I like watching them. When I see L do the dramas, concerts, and even Infinite's schedules and endure all of this well, I'm thankful as a hyung."

During this year's SBS 'Gayo Daejun', Hoya and Woohyun are going to go up on stage not as Infinite but as new groups they'll form with members from other idol groups. Kim Sunggyu said "I'm somewhat bitter and sad but these teams aren't going to last so [it's alright]".

"But I still hope for our members to shine and do well in these teams. I'll also support them.. I'm used to them being in our team so I'm actually worried hen thinking they're going to be in another team. Woohyun is in the blue team with Sweetune and our team also had to take care of the choreography. Hoya is in a team with people we didn't get to work with until now so I'm a bit worried. But I think they'll earn a lot of experience from it."

When talking about Hoya, he couldn't not talk about the combi play the two people showed this year. Kim Sunggyu said about the their rankings "These days I call Hoya 'hyung'" and "Hoya also treats me like a dongsaeng".

"I joke around calling him hyung because he's popular but doesn't Hoya have very good skills? Rapping, singing, dancing, acting, he can do everything. When we're together I say that I'm above them but I can't go against these friends. A little while ago, when we were in Japan, I went to eat with Hoya at a Korean restaurant, the owner didn't recognize me but told Hoya he watched his drama well. I told myself it had a huge effect. After that I couldn't treat him carelessly and he looked different? And Hoya is very playful so he jokes really well with me calling himself 'Ho-actor', 'Uptrend' and such. On the outside I say "Don't make me laugh you're not there yet' but there are a lot of times where I'm surprised. I thought that his drama did really well so he has a lot of popularity. When he was doing the drama, there was always this kind of reaction for Hoya no matter where we went."

Seeing that the hyung and dongsaeng switched place between Kim Sunggyu and Hoya, Infinite had a lot of reactions saying they were funny when switching places starting from when they did the variety program 'Ranking King', like it was Infinite's only gag code.

"That friend (Hoya) says that he's a manly and dark guy but he's really a Gyeongsangdo namja (T/N: Gyeonsang is a Korean province, men from Gyeongsang are said to be very manly). He's cold, doesn't express himself well, he's introverted and doesn't really say when he doesn't like something, but even so, at some point he must've found entertaining to make fun of me. He did his broadcast well and came home saying 'Today I did well' the dongsaengs were praising him and without even knowing it I was feeling proud too. He also teased me sometimes but starting from then I think I got excited. It was making me more confident no matter where I went."
