Shinhwa keep their promise from ‘God of Victory’ by preparing 1,000 lunches for 2PM’s fans

Posted: 16 May 2013 09:03 AM PDT

Shinhwa are not only the the longest running idol group, but they’re men of their word.

If you recall, back in September, 2PM and Shinhwa competed with each other in ten intense rounds of competitive games on ‘God of Victory‘ where both groups decided to have the loser fulfill a special promise. 2PM asked Shinhwa to gift 1,000 of their fans with lunch when they make a comeback while Shinhwa asked 2PM to show them love at the airport by wearing raincoats in their representative orange color and hold up fan cards. It was 2PM who won the show in the end and Shinhwa made sure to keep that promise months later when 2PM made their comeback.

Wooyoung shared on his Twitter, “I wondered if they would really do it… They really kept their promise… ㅠㅠ Ah ohㅠㅠ@.@ Shinhwa sunbaenim are the best, best!!! I will support ‘This Love’ to be daebak~ ^0^ Thank you!!”, and shared a proof shot of Shinhwa’s specially packed lunches for 1,000 HOTTESTs.

The sticker on the lunch packages read, “We congratulate our 2PM hoobaenims on their comeback!! Jun.K/Nichkhun/Taecyeon/Wooyoung/Junho/Chansung Hwaiting! FROM. Shinhwa”

Congratulations to both 2PM and Shinhwa on their comebacks!

Posted: 16 May 2013 08:00 AM PDT

The police has arrested the hacker who hacked Core Contents Media‘s website.

While trying to navigate through the site yesterday, fans noticed random video clips being presented on the site which you can read more about here.

The label revealed, “The hacker related to the hacking situation on our official company homepage has been arrested. As soon as the situation happened, we reported it to the police. The hacker was arrested and investigated on May 16 at the Gangnam Police Station’s Cyber Investigations Squad and completed a statement. The hacker is a 17 year old high school student living in Gangwondo Wonju.

The hacker is apparently a student who learned about computer security programs, and then was asked by his friends if hacking the site was possible. The hacker confessed that the hacking was done out of curiosity. The hacker and his mother went to Core Contents Media’s office to formally apologize.

Core Contents Media said, “We were going to take strong legal action because of previous attempts. But since the hacker is a young student, we are debating on what we should do. We will make a decision later.

Currently, CCM’s official homepage is still down.
