"Hong Kong Dome Festival" controversy

Posted: 23 Jun 2013 01:30 AM PDT

"Hong Kong Dome Festival" is an outdoor concert which is to be held at the Kai Tak Development Site on July 1. It will showcase talents of BoA, SHINee, EXO, f(x), Super Junior-M's Henry, and local bands Mr and RubberBand

But the Hong Kong fans are not excited about it, they actually want the artists to boycott the event. They even made a Facebook Page to voice out their protest. 

Every year, a pro-democracy protest rally is held on the same day,  July 1, in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong fans believed that it was purposely arranged by the government to halt young people to protest against the Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying. The low ticket price, which is sold for 99 HKD (14,000 won or approximately 12 USD) from the average 1,000 HKD (145,000 won or approximately 128 USD), added to the speculations.

However, organizers of the "Hong Kong Dome Festival" deny the controversy. PIA chairwoman Florence Chan said to South China Morning Post (SCMP), " We picked this day because we wanted to show the government that we need to be competitive in the region, and that would be through holding a big event in a mega venue. For example, Hong Kong Colisseum has a capacity for 12,500, but we need a place with a capacity of 25,000 to 30,000. Regarding the low price tickets, it was to help show public demand for mega shows."

There are no words from the Korean artists, but the local Hong Kong bands Mr and RubberBand will still participate, but will donate their earnings from the concert to charity.

Taemin and NaEun's awkward skinship caused by Key and Minho

Posted: 23 Jun 2013 12:18 AM PDT

Looks like SHINee Minho and Key's appearance in WGM made Taemin nervous and uncomfortable in front of NaEun.

On June 22nd episode of We Got Married, Key and Minho were invited as guests for the couple's housewarming party. Besides, they even prepared a cute cake for Taemin's celebration of Coming of Age Day.

Apparently, Key and Minho were bored as there's no interaction from the couple. Key initiated and asked Taemin to hold NaEun's hand while slicing the cake which Minho agreed on. The two seemed really awkward in front of the two SHINee members.

Unsatisfied, Minho asked Taemin to put his arm around NaEun's shoulder which made Taemin really uncomfortable. However, thanks to his persistent hyungs, the couple were able to have a cute couple picture taken.
