Infinite H, “Prerecordings? It’s nice because they’re stages we make with the fans”

Posted: 19 Jan 2013 07:00 AM PST

Infinite's hiphop unit Infinite H (Dongwoo, Hoya) showed an uncommon affection toward the fans.

Infinite H met eNEWS right before their latest live broadcast, when we asked them 'Which stage do you like the most between live broadcasts and prerecordings?', they replied "We aren't especially biased toward any of them and we just do our best in the given situation. But since we're with the fans during the prerecordings, it has more feelings so it's obviously better".

Infinite H's member Hoya said while laughing, "When it hasn't been long since you did your comeback, prerecordings have a nice side. Because you can work the stage to make it more perfect. But later on, if you promote the same song for 7~8 weeks, there are also times when live broadcasts are better".

He then added, "Both obviously have their pros and cons but if I put myself in the fans' shoes, there are more good points about the prerecording".

Dongwoo said, showing affection for the fans, "Regardless of the stage, I don't have any anxiety about it. It's just that for the stage of the prerecording filled with only our fans, even the cheering is different so I can only get strength from it. And I also find the time where you can share even just a few words with the fans next to the stage nice and precious".

Infinite H is the 7-membered idol group Infinite's hiphop unit formed by Dongwoo and Hoya. Primary was in charge of the album's producing and a lot of talented musicians such as Dynamic Duo, Bumkey, Zion.T, Beenzino, etc participated in it so they received comments saying that they showed an exceptional completion as a standard idol unit.

Baek Ji-young Confident She Can Keep Girl Groups at Bay

Posted: 19 Jan 2013 04:30 AM PST

Amid a K-pop scene dominated by flashy dance moves and fast beats, heart-rending ballads may seem out of date. But these have served as Baek Ji-young's bread and butter for the last 10 years and helped cement her enduring popularity.

The singer, now in her late 30s, recently released her latest single "I Hate It," which is competing with Girls' Generation's "I Got a Boy" in the local charts.

Baek will hold her first solo concert in seven years on Feb. 16 at Jamsil Gymnasium in Seoul and have a nationwide tour in March.

While preparing for her concert, Baek said she wrestled with the desire to try and compete with popular girl groups on their own terms. "Honestly, I felt a strong desire to dance passionately on stage, similar to how I performed when I started out in 1999. But you can't turn back the clock, so I came to the conclusion that it's better for me to stay consistent and stick to the songs that suit me," she said.

She said there is "nothing special" about her voice, but added that she strictly adheres to one winning principle while on stage. "I completely immerse myself in the songs I sing. I think of myself as an actress who acts for three or four minutes at a time," she said.

She has also participated in numerous soundtracks for TV soaps, most of which have proven to be very popular.

"I love to participate in producing music for soaps if I like the female lead after reading the script," she said. "It's a thrill to hear my song played during melodramatic moments in soaps."

"I want my concert to follow a narrative that tracks back my musical career," she added. "I also want to do a long-running series of concert at small theaters in the future."

Infinite H’s first album “A response beyond imagination”

Posted: 19 Jan 2013 12:00 AM PST

Infinite H formed by the Infinite members, Hoya and Dongwoo, released their first mini-album 'Fly High' on January 14th, they're promoting it with the title song 'Special Girl'.

This album, totally directed by the famous producer Primary, is evaluated as an album with an equal mass appeal and musicality, it's also gaining attention as an album not only popular among their fans but also among common music fans and hiphop musicians. They show off an unusual music color they couldn't show under their 'original' name and they're receiving good responses saying they reached beyond the limits of an idol unit.

The title song 'Special Girl' got 1st place on the real-time chart after its release on the 11th and is still in the top 10 showing the signs of a lasting hit. The day of its offline release, the 14th, the album got 1st place on the site of the Hanteo chart counting the total of the CD sales, they said that they worked all night to adjust to the volume due to the demand being higher than they expected it to be.

Infinite H's representant revealed to Newsen "We were shocked to see that the response was better than what we expected. The preorders already reached 120,000 copies so it was hectic to adjust to the volume" and "We started to produce the second distribution even before the release of the first-press edition but since the days of release are different nationally, it's being reflected gradually on the album sales charts".

They added "The oversea shipping volume is reflected a bit later but it seems that if we add the oversea sales as well, we will have an astonishing result" and "They're planning to carry the momentum from this and do their best during their promotions".

Kim Jaejoong’s Solo Album Scores An All-Kill On Music Sites… Makes His Mark As A True Artiste

Posted: 18 Jan 2013 06:50 PM PST

Kim Jaejoong has finally returned to our side with an album.

This album signifies Kim Jaejoong's first solo activities as a singer and has a total of five rock genre tracks, but each song captures the unique style of Kim Jaejoong to showcase a variety of techniques in one album. In the pre-released song 'One Kiss' and 'Mine', which had its music video released on the night of the 16th, the intense sound and Kim Jaejoong's explosive vocal talent are the main charms of the song. Meanwhile, the newly revealed tracks, 'You Fill Me Up', 'My Own Consolation' and 'All Alone', showcase his mellow voice with a melodious track. Overall, the album is being praised as a 'high quality album'.

'Mine', which received an explosive response after having its music video released at midnight on the 17th, perfectly combines Kim Jaejoong's explosive vocal talent with well-expressed emotions and topped the music charts of Bugs and Cyworld as soon as it was released. The intense beat, sophisticated melody line and honest lyrics stimulate the listeners' ears and has made its mark as the most trendy song of the winter.

'You Fill Me Up' and 'All Alone' are melodious rock ballads that showcase the consideration the artiste has put in to ease fans into rock. If 'Mine' was an intense song, than these two tracks  have Kim Jaejoong's mellow and emotional voice melting into the songs to tug at the heartstrings of listeners. The last track All Alone was composed and written by Kim Jaejoong, and the calming piano instrumental leaves a big impact.

'One Kiss', one of the tracks of Kim Jaejoong's first solo mini album, topped the iTunes rock charts of nine countries including Japan, Singapore and Taiwan, as well as domestic music charts. The four other tracks that were released today ranked first to fourth on Bugs and Cyworld's music charts, helping Kim Jaejoong making his mark as 'Artiste Kim Jaejoong'.

Meanwhile, Kim Jaejoong will be holding a very special concert 'Your, My and Mine' at the Ilsan KINTEX on the 26th and 27th.

TVXQ Changmin Says, “Kyu Hyun Told Me To Be Prepared To Be Criticized For Just 100 Days”

Posted: 18 Jan 2013 06:20 PM PST

Ahead of his first gig as a MC, TVXQ's Max Changmin confessed that he sought out advice from Super Junior's Kyu Hyun.

A press conference for KBS 2TV's new variety program 'Moonlight Prince' was held on the 16th in Yeoido.

'Moonlight Prince' is a program that shares books with viewers and stars, and then also makes donations. It will be based on the MCs and the guests sharing stories and responding to questions from viewers.

Regarding his new challenge, Max Changmin confessed, "The pressure is driving me crazy." He added, "I always feel pressured and nervous whenever I'm not on set. I'm not trying to candy coat anything, but when I meet the other four, the nervousness and pressure seem to mysteriously disappear," and "I find them to be very reliable."

He also revealed that he received advice from his variety show MC senior, Super Junior's Kyu Hyun. He said, "Kyu Hyun told me, 'Just relax  and prepare to be criticized and anyone and everyone for the first 100 days, no more, no less.' He also said, 'If you follow and take care of the other guys, you'll do well.' So I'll take his advice and do my job without worrying about it."

When asked a question comparing Max Changmin to Lee Seung Gi, who worked with Kang Ho Dong on '2 Days, 1 Night', Kang Ho Dong said, "The Lee Seung Gi people saw with amazing backdrops behind them is different from the Max Changmin people will see, surrounded by books in a studio," and "I believe a person's unique charm and effort is important. I believe the similarity between Lee Seung Gi and Changmin is that they both try their best, no matter where they are. I can't wait for his infinite potential to unfold. I will do my best to help him as a senior, and an older figure."

Kang Ho Dong, Tak Jae Hoon, Jung Jae Hyung, Brave Brothers and Max Changmin's 'Moonlight Prince' will begin airing at 11:10pm on the 22nd. The first episode's guest is Lee Seo Jin and the second episode's is Lee Da Hae.
