ASTA TV’s November 2012 Issue – INFINITE “Infinite Concert Second Invasion Evolution The Movie 3D”

Posted: 17 Nov 2012 07:00 AM PST



On October 11th, the press preview of Infinite's (the 'Trend-dols' with a splendid perfectly synchronized dance) 3D movie <Infinite Concert Second Invasion Evolution The Movie 3D> was held at Seoul's CGV Wangsimni. Infinite who showed an image glowing with nervosity at the movie filled with the images of their own concert! But, as expected, they couldn't hide their joy at the fact that they could see their concert on a theater's screen.

<Infinite Concert Second Invasion Evolution The Movie 3D>is a 3D concert movie which required more than 30 cameras were required at Infinite's encore concert 'SECOND INVASION EVOLUTION' held on April 1st at the Olympic Sport Stadium. It depicts in 3D the harmonious emotions with over 10,000 fans. This movie, presenting an overwhelming sense of realism with a realistic 3D video, showed a special performance performed only during the encore concert 'Shot', as well as the special video 'I am Infinite' which is an audition of Infinite for the members' solo stages and even the concert's making video was planned to be revealed then, so the expectations were high for it.

They wanted to see their own concert but they hoped for it to be a good gift for the fans who couldn't see the concert and could now see it in the theaters, on a 3D screen so they could feel even closer to the members. Sunggyu revealed the funny points of the movie saying "How many times will Dongwoo get the choreography wrong? If you observe it it's funny.", and as soon as Sungjong said "Each of the members' individual stages left a deep impression" Hoya added wittily, warming up the place "Because there's a performance where I rip my shirt, I was worried about whether it'd be deemed unsuitable for under 19s. But it's a relief that it was rated so students can all watch it".

After this, during photo time they posed with their 3D glasses as the pose they had in the 3D movie's capture, Infinite became a more brighter item with the black suits that they wore that day and made them cool. And as much as they are the Infinite famous through their angle-choreography they showed a part of 'Be Mine' and received a big flash baptism.

Sungjong
It was amazing seeing our performance like this in a movie. You can experience it through 3D, it's more realistic, and while watching the movie it really felt like I was on stage dancing and singing. It was enjoyable throughout watching it. I hope that even in the future you can see our performances through movies!

Sunggyu
I wish you can enjoy the touchingness through the movie that you couldn't feel at the concert! And beyond anything, please anticipate how many times Dongwoo messed up. After counting Dongwoo's mistakes, if you send through SNS I will respond! Dongwoo watched this movie and cried again. (laughs)

Dongwoo
Not only the things that we prepared for this concert but there is also performances and songs that you can only find in the movie! Feel the touchingness from that day as it is! Ah~~ I want to watch it again too!

L
In this movie, INFINITE's everything is included! You can feel all seven member's charms at one time so surely come to watch! And then leave your appreciation through SNS.

SungYeol
I wish all the fans that couldn't come to the concert could watch it! Think of our mistakes as aegyo!

Hoya
If you watch this movie, you can feel enjoyment beyond the actual concert. It has comic, touchingness, and story. Because it has thick touchingness, I wish a lot of fans watched it!

Woohyun
It is a concert that has formed fruit through everyday's efforts. Please watch our cool sides through the movie theater's big screen!

Tiger Dara looking innocent and cute

Posted: 17 Nov 2012 06:00 AM PST




Korean girl group 2NE1 came to Taiwan for the first time at around 5am yesterday, attracting over 100 fans at the air port to welcome them and making them touched. They insisted on being "trendy no matter the timing".

Member Dara showed up with a Tiger (Winnie The Pooh character) outfit, (T/N: I know it's a JS design but the Taiwan media used Tiger instead) CL wore a pair of shades with smiley faces. Members were very friendly towards the "early birds" fans by shaking hands with them, making fans excited and said that "It was worth it even if my Liver explodes!"

2NE1, who consisted of CL, Dara, Bom & Minzy, is a sister group of the Korean famous group, BIGBANG. They debuted 3 years ago with Hip Hop style and their fans are mainly females.
They arrived from LAX to Taoyuan airport, attracting many fans to wait for them at the airport to welcome them. Despite boarding the plane for more than 10 hours, they were still fashionistas. CL who was wearing a pair of shades with smiley faces said "We like to dress up prettily off stage too. I'm thankful for everyone who likes our style."

Although they loved dressing up coolly  their method of protecting their throats are very traditional. During the interview yesterday, Park Bom revealed that "I gargle with salt water every morning and wears a mask whenever I'm out." However, CL said "I tried drinking stewed pear water ( it is supposed to be good for throat and voice ) , it's not very effective. Sleeping is still the best." Minzy then said she drank hot tea to protect her throat.

They will be performing at 730pm tonight at Taipei Arena, and their tickets are already 80% sold. To buy their tickets, please visit ticket.com.tw.

This place has very different atmosphere, language and culture from others we've been to. it was interesting. is it ok to dub it a new world. people here know our existence.. so nice I can't believe.. We don't know when we meet fans here again. I felt fans saw us, wanting to remember us in heart and feel us more.. I did my best to live up to the expectation of South America. Live show was going at 9pm in weekday. every fan did their best too. even it was quite cold due to outdoor stage.. we're gonna go back home tomorrow but I'm not happy, thinking fans missing us in South America..

Gracias Peru Adios!!!!

Eunjung "Want to forget it all. Please withdraw the sanctions against Five Fingers' Production Company"

Posted: 17 Nov 2012 05:00 AM PST


- Heard about the sanctions against Five Fingers' production company while promoting in Japan
- Told the Management Entertainment Association "Want to forget it all"


T-ara's Eunjung has requested the Management Entertainment Agency to withdraw its boycott of Five Fingers' production company YEIN E&M.

The Korean Entertainment Management Association (KEMA), in any interview with eDaily StarIn on the afternoon of the 16th, said about its sanction procedure against YEIN E&M "A sudden change in variable occurred after the news spread that we had sent out documents [regarding YEIN E&M to our members], right now, our procedure is put on halt." A related person from KEMA said "It is because T-ara's Eunjung, who is currently promoting in Japan, has requested KEMA to withdraw the sanctions against Five Fingers' production company YEIN E&M regarding the dispute about her being forced off the drama."

This afternoon, Eunjung expressed to KEMA "Putting aside right or wrong, I want to put down everything related to Five Fingers and forget it all. If the sanctions against the production company can be withdrawn, then let's just pretend this did not happen."

Because of Eunjung's request, KEMA is currently figuring out how to solve this problem. YEIN E&M had forced an actor to leave after completion of contract singing, poster shooting, script reading and the press conference, so this cannot be seen only as a problem between one actor and one production company. To prevent similar things from happening again in the future, KEMA decided to respond by taking boycotting measures. Another related person said "Although Eunjung's opinion should be placed first in resolving this issue, but from KEMA's perspective, some measures have to be put into place to prevent this from happening again in the future."

Today, KEMA had delivered documents to its members and member companies (around 130) regarding Five Finger's unilateral termination of Eunjung. The document said "We were determined to rectify the normal drama production relations and had requested for the actor's return to the drama and for an undertaking not to allow such things to happen again, but YEIN as usual remained silent, avoiding responsibility and deceiving our Association", "We hope that our members will confirm with our Association first before deciding to appear in YEIN E&M productions. It is our plan to implement this for 2 years (until December 2014)." [In effect meaning that without any special reasons, KEMA members should not appear in YEIN E&M dramas.]

This measure is the follow up to Eunjung's sudden termination from SBS's drama Five Fingers in August. At the time, KEMA and the Korean Broadcasting and Actors Union (KBAU) had, on the 28th, issued its protests against SBS and Five Fingers' production company YEIN E&M for forcing Eunjung off the drama. YEIN E&M had also expressed its stance, stating that it would take strong legal measures if Eunjung's side continues to make unreasonable propositions. The two sides were always in opposition.

CL teases Bom, plus 2NE1 Names 'Taiwan Amabassador'

Posted: 17 Nov 2012 04:30 AM PST



Popular KPOP girl group 2NE1 flew to Taiwan from Los Angeles on the 15th for their New Evolution concert world tour stop at Taiwan, Taipei Arena. They arrived at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport at 5.50am.


The airport was already crowded with about 120 fans, 80% of them are females. The moment they saw 2NE1  coming out, the fans shouted: "goddess!" The girls departed to their hotel in a Mercedes Benz immediately after, to catch up on some sleep.



The hotel 2NE1 stays in costs NTD$25000  (~860USD) per person per night. 2NE1 has about 100 staff with them, 3 security guards from Korea, 5 security guards from Taiwan. All these show 2NE1′s superstar status. This is2NE1's first visit to Taiwan. They did not request for anything special, they only asked for fresh fruits to be prepared.2NE1 held an interview in the afternoon on the day they arrived. They looked a bit tired, but 2NE1 said that they feel great. Although 2NE1 only debuted 3 years ago, they have already performed in many countries.

During the interview, leader CL stated that time difference is not an issue to her. Because they are doing their world tour now, she is always tired and hence, she will sleep whenever possible. She also said: "I am looking forward to the concert tomorrow. I was very shocked to see so many fans in the airport today!"


Park Bom said that to maintain her figure and stamina, she will find time to do exercises and do sit-ups for at least 100 times. At this point, CL teased Bom: "that seems like a lie!" Recently, it was reported that Park Bominvented her own cabbage diet meal. [T/N This was actually back in 2010 before 'To Anyone' promotions] When asked about this, Bom corrected the report: "Our trainer wanted me to eat more cabbage. I merely took the photos of my cabbage meal for memory sake. I didn't expect this to become a hot topic." Park Bom enjoys drinking watermelon juice and she jokingly said that it made her lose weight. Fans immediately named it "Watermelon juice diet" which made her feel flattered.


Dara also expressed that she has learned Mandarin Chinese before, and she introduced herself in Mandarin Chinese: "I am Dara, I am 28, I have a younger brother called Thunder (MBLAQ member)." Hence, Dara was nominated by 2NE1 to be their Taiwan ambassador.



[2NE1 also revealed that they have prepared 26 of their popular songs such as "I Am The Best", "Fire" and new song "I Love You" for the NECon in Taiwan. Despite having performed so many times, 2NE1 said that they still feel nervous.

2NE1's seniors, BIGBANG, recently held their Alive world tour at Taiwan as well. The boys from BIGBANG told 2NE1 that Taipei Arena was a fantastic venue to perform in.

BIGBANG in America: Behind the Scenes With the K-Pop Boy Wonders!

Posted: 16 Nov 2012 09:30 PM PST




A refreshingly candid answer in the very formal, professional world of K-pop where the stars are more cute than sexy, scandals are minimal, and its stars spend years training. But this is BIGBANG — an act that rewrites most of the conventions in K-pop by composing most of their own music, go shirtless in music videos, and have found themselves in the midst of several controversies just this year alone.

Backstage, the five members are in their opening number outfits — heavy-duty, sparkling white suits looking like edgy Prince Charmings — but G-Dragon walks around without his jacket on and huge sunglasses before sitting down for some pre-show interviews where each member personifies himself in their demeanor. The elusive T.O.P., known for his low-bass timbre rapping, wears dark sunglasses and shows little emotion. The handsome Seungri sits straight up juxtaposing G-Dragon's casual answers and laid back appearance.




Taeyang, in long braids, acts in a similar calm manner answering many questions with an impressive grasp of English similar to G-Dragon. While Daesung, the group's charismatic powerhouse vocalist, spends most of his off-camera moments warming up his voice with lip trills. Each has his own bottle of Fiji water (with a bottle of Welch's white grape juice for T.O.P.) with G-Dragon's attitude seemingly not improving just minutes before show time.


The show is scheduled to begin only ten minutes behind schedule (a big difference to the 90-minute plus delay label-mates 2NE1 fell into in August) with little commotion backstage. One back-up dancer scurries out of the female dancer's changing room, being sure to slow down and give a little bow upon passing Taeyang, but all feels calm before the final American stop of BIGBANG's Alive Tour.




Who knows what happened in the final ten minutes before wrapping interviews to the show's kick-off (perhaps it was the ear-shattering screams filling the sold out arena show), but when BIGBANG took the stage Friday night, G-Dragon and co. appeared in amazing spirits throughout the entire performance.

Kicking off with "TONIGHT," the band's frenzied electronic track, G-Dragon ran down the stage's runway looking as if he would almost fall off the stage into the vivacious pit of fans if he hadn't slowed himself down sooner (he repeated this same gesture several times throughout the show). The show started off with banging tracks moving quickly to "Hands Up" and "Fantastic Baby" (which peaked at No. 2 on the K-Pop Hot 100). As the show moves on, G-Dragon receives a loud response whenever his parts begin, but Daesung gets equally impressive screams. (Particularly when teasing that fans may be hearing his new solo material soon.)




Throughout the show BIGBANG took a stage approach similar to the likes of One Direction — using minimal choreography and relying more on jumping around stage and interacting with the crowd. Stage props were used minimally, but effectively. "How Gee" saw T.O.P. and G-Dragon riding around in bedazzled, upholstered segues and Daesung attaching humongous angel wings during appropriate solo track "Wings" to attach himself on a cable and essentially soar over the crowd.

BIGBANG's musical styling ranges from hip-hop to electronic pop, but in-between tracks concertgoers saw a deeper connection to the hip-hop world with members beat-boxing for each other while the group spit raps or harmonized together (including a highlight where G-Dragon offered English verses of "Crayon," [his solo track that peaked at No. 4 on the K-Pop Hot 100] indicating a proper English debut may not be too far away for he or BIGBANG). Concertgoers were treated to breakdancing and Taeyang's gymnastics including a few on-stage flips.




While speaking to the crowd, the group had a tendency to sing the Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' New York anthem, "Empire State Of Mind," making their East Coast admiration clear. "It was really tough to get here, three flight changes," Taeyang told the crowd of the problems his band found in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Focusing on the positive he wrapped with, "Let's make it unforgettable."

Today's male pop or hip-hop stars wouldn't be caught dead in the flamboyant fashion the group brought for their Alive Tour (with outfits including brightly colored suit jackets and the tightest jeans imaginable). Yet the look completely works for BIGBANG with nothing sacrificed from an artistic standpoint. One got a sense of the dedication the fans (affectionately known as VIPs) when BIGBANG dropped out singing to let concertgoers take the chorus to their hit song "Haru Haru." The fact that such a large East Coast venue could be filled with the lyrics of a song called "Haru Haru" by the concertgoers is truly remarkable in and of itself.

G-Dragon seemingly recognized his group's amazing accomplishment with his energy never fading throughout the showcase. "You guys are amazing… I love you," he told the audience to fans' delights. "I promise you we will come back soon." He spoke a similar phrase in Korean, but to lesser cheers.

But with tubs of Brooklyn Lager and bottles of Hennessy backstage following the show, regardless of whatever language they were singing in, the final American stop of BIGBANG's Alive Tour was a success.

Boyfriend came up tops on the album charts

Posted: 16 Nov 2012 09:00 PM PST




Boyfriend's full-length "JANUS" album came up at 1st place in the Daily Charts Sales.

'JANUS' that was released on 14 November topped both Real-Time Album Charts & 15-Day Daily Charts at the same time in the combined Hanteo Chart Sales.

Boyfriend is receiving immense competition with popular idol boy groups like B1A4, Block B etc in the charts as well.

'JANUS' is a new wave style genre that showcases Boyfriend's vocals in a fantastic string instrumental, emotional melodious piano sounds and groovy bass. It is a song that expresses the sorrows and pain of both sides of how a guy dreaded letting go of the girl he loves but still did it with a smile in order to not leave any hard feelings.

Jaejoong Talks About Love Scandals and Dating Publicly

Posted: 16 Nov 2012 07:56 PM PST



Title: Kim Jaejoong, "Scandal with actress is wishful thinking… but dating publicly?"

Kim Jaejoong who is a member of JYJ and has made his onscreen debut in a full fledged commercial movie said he gained valuable colleagues in senior actors Oh Dal-Su and Han Sang-Jin through the movie 'Code Name: Jackal'.

Kim Jaejoong said "The two senior actors encouraged me, saying 'Jaejoong-ah, continue to do movies" and "Though there aren't scenes where we appeared together, we talked about many things during filming."

Previously in the TV series 'Dr. Jin' Kim Jaejoong who forged a friendship with Song Seung-Heon said "Though we were nervous and busy concentrating [on the drama] since it was both of our first times acting in a historical drama, we became closer while filming together and we contact each other even now."

Through a succession of pieces, Kim Jaejoong who palled up with actors said "Now I want to get close to an actress" and got a whimsical concern. "I don't know what piece I'm going to choose but now I want to get close to an actress. I become friends with actors all the time. Others have love scandals through filming movies or TV series, but why am I not having one?"

To a question about his ideal type, Kim Jaejoong answered "I had a definite ideal type in the past. However, now the standard is getting blurred. But it doesn't mean I like anyone… Strangely, it is unclear to me."

Kim Jaejoong also talked about dating publicly. "I can date publicly after I date someone for a long time. Of course, I have had secret relationships and I have talked about such stories in broadcasts. But I think I can contemplate making my relationship public when I have dated someone for at least a year."
