1. With Super Junior's leader Leeteuk and Mighty Mouth's Sangchu recently enlisting as active duty soldiers, it's heard that they're inspiring many young idols to do the same. One singer who recently completed his service and was discharged hinted, "Idol members that are planning to enlist next year or the year after that are all showing determination to enlist as active duty soldiers. They feel that it will benefit their career in the long run and also put their conscience at ease." Another industry insider revealed, "The public tends to view public service unfavorably so all of the idols seem to agree that it's better to enlist as active duty."

2. The drama 'Faith' has come under fire for failing to pay their cast and staff on time. The producers and SBS have already stated that they will pay them in order as soon as possible. Unfortunately, another producer who was on the chopping block last year for purposely avoiding paying his staff and cast has landed a drama slot next year, earning some disgruntled remarks from industry insiders. "This is a serious problem in the industry where even someone that has purposely avoided paying people what they've earned is able to continue producing dramas."

4. Idol group member A who is currently promoting in Japan has been rumored to be dating a daughter of an extremely wealthy family. One insider hinted, "Her family is known to be very powerful in Japan. Anyone will know her last name upon hearing it." A hasn't had any restrictions on having relationships in Japan and has been dating freely so far, but now that more about her background is known, many are curious as to whether he will settle down with her permanently.

5. Female celebrity B is having a hard time coming to terms with her dwindling fame. Although she was once a popular figure just 10 years ago, she's no longer the top name now that she's in her 30s. Unfortunately, she refuses to accept reality and is causing havoc with every contract she enters into, demanding higher guarantee fees and more pay for her work. Her managers are quick to complain about working with her, as even when they land her a job after much struggle, she says back to them, "This is all you can get me, don't you know who I am?"

6. Female celebrity C is feeling the effects of society's double standards due to some information about her private life coming to the public. Because of her newly discovered past, not one CF, movie, or drama has offered to cast her. If she had been a male star, we're sure that society would have forgiven her and moved on, but because she's female, her past will forever remain as the shackles to her career.

7. Female actress D recently had her contract expire with her agency and has been out in the market for quite a while. Just hearing D's name alone, we're sure many agencies would be drooling to contract with her, but as it turns out, D has a drinking problem that has caused her to miss scheduled activities several times. Because of this problem, many of the agencies are shaking their heads and turning away.

Until the article said 30s my first thought for Female Celebrity B was Boa LOL
in_noctem 14th-Nov-2012 03:30 pm (UTC)
Ngl I did think she was in her 30s when I first saw her :|

Idol group member A who is currently promoting in Japan

And that sucks for the cast of 'Faith'
tees2mai 14th-Nov-2012 03:56 pm (UTC)
i thought seungri at first too, but he finished his japanese promotions last month..
ayumikoshiro 14th-Nov-2012 03:45 pm (UTC)
For 1 lol I doubt it.

I knew Phillip Lee left early for a reason. I don't think faith was the blockbuster they anticipated. How is Full House Take 2 doing if it goes well enough maybe more people will go for pre-recording.

I'm guessing 5 is Hyori ... but isn't she still decently popular.

ashiva 14th-Nov-2012 03:59 pm (UTC)
It's definitely not Hyori. It seems it's someone who hasn't had hit in ten years.
xxhna 14th-Nov-2012 03:53 pm (UTC)
5 Hyori, 6 IU?

I'm really curious about the one dating the Japanese girl though.
shintotchi 14th-Nov-2012 03:57 pm (UTC)
I'm guessing #6 is IU or Goo Hara.
Number 5 could be Chaeyeon...or Hyori (though I feel like she's super popular) or Bada? Dunno
kiminikaeru 14th-Nov-2012 04:05 pm (UTC)
i think #5 is either bada or chaeyeon too. hyori is still popular.
jaetotheho 14th-Nov-2012 03:59 pm (UTC)
first thought for number 5 was Hyori too.
and number 6 is Goo Hara.
prettyminstrel 14th-Nov-2012 04:01 pm (UTC)
t think #4 is seungri
tees2mai 14th-Nov-2012 04:02 pm (UTC)
i think #4 is daesung. he spent all his free time in japan for the past few months, and fans have been speculating it's cause he has a girlfriend.

#5 could be either iu or hara
thank_yous 14th-Nov-2012 04:09 pm (UTC)
But Daesung isn't promoting in Japan though.
soramai 14th-Nov-2012 04:04 pm (UTC)
2 korean industry so shady

no 3 ?

4 someone from Shinee.

5 Can't tell but want to know

6 eww, sexism. :(

7 can't tell, who is she ?

Edited at 2012-11-14 04:07 pm (UTC)
yesungholic 14th-Nov-2012 04:30 pm (UTC)
I also think it's someone from SHINee. for some reason I thought about Taemin right away
mamchan 14th-Nov-2012 04:05 pm (UTC)
2. "This is a serious problem in the industry where even someone that has purposely avoided paying people what they've earned is able to continue producing dramas."
what an asshole!

4. Seungri?

6. i thought IU but i don't think she is going to loose her contracts

7. i wonder who that could be
setsuna16 14th-Nov-2012 04:32 pm (UTC)
I want to say that number 5 is Hyori or Bada. More Hyori than Bada, because I love Bada, but Hyori is still a top name.

Hell, it could be Shoo. I'd kinda laugh if it was Shoo. But I think both her and Eugene are more concerned with their family lives right now.
satin999 14th-Nov-2012 04:55 pm (UTC)
When i started reading 7 i thought of Shin Min Ah but idk i don't follow her that closely to know if she'd missed any scheduled activities
izabera 14th-Nov-2012 06:19 pm (UTC)
I think it's a good guess, her contract with AM Entertainment expired recently and as far as I know there are no news of her signing with another agency. Just checked, she signed with a new company O& Entertainment a few days ago.

But it could still be right because she spent almost 2 months without an agency... isn't it really unusual for a popular actress?

We don't know the date of these blind items so it's hard to be sure.

xalexandriam 14th-Nov-2012 04:59 pm (UTC)
For #4 I thought Seungri at first, but after his sex scandal? lol he really doesn't seem like he's ready to settle down just yet or that he's even with one girl consistently.

If it's someone from Big Bang, I'm leaning toward Dae because he did have activities in Japan and idk. something about him just strikes me as him being more willing and wanting to settle down with someone.

I don't think 5 is Hyori because she's still rather popular, as far as I can tell.

For the female celeb one, I'm more inclined to think it's an actress than a female idol.
hagar_tammaa 14th-Nov-2012 07:14 pm (UTC)
yeah I was thinking Choi ji woo
gyuri 14th-Nov-2012 05:13 pm (UTC)
the female ones are most likely about actresses rather than idols, save for #5 which is def about Hyori.
sisterjune 14th-Nov-2012 05:44 pm (UTC)
I really dont get people saying 5 is about hyori? Like she's really popular and one of the most successful veteran lady idols in the business. She's been a regular on variety or hosting talk shows for years now. I dont know how much singing she does these days but I'd say she's still pretty relevant.
izabera 14th-Nov-2012 06:10 pm (UTC)
Exactly, she's still active and mega popular. There's no way it could be her. She has a reputation for being very demanding and diva-like so that could be why people think it's her.

It could be Ivy, Bada, Chaeyeon etc...
Guessing who it is exactly depends on whether the 10 years are meant literally or just as a figure of speech.
xblackchristmas 14th-Nov-2012 06:37 pm (UTC)
okay please don't let it be SHINee for #4 ;__;

i thought of baek ji young for #5 but i couldnt come up with anyone else at the moment until comments.

#6 is definitely IU...
lenra 14th-Nov-2012 06:42 pm (UTC)
I thought number 5 was about Uhm Jung Hwa but who knows...

#7 and the only actress that i heard of her contract being expired was Shin Min Ah and people were wondering what she would do but last week she announced a new agency with Hyun Bin.

Edited at 2012-11-14 06:44 pm (UTC)
turtles_tszx 14th-Nov-2012 07:17 pm (UTC)
Nah, it couldn't be Uhm Jung Hwa bcos she's 43/44 this year and dancing queen did really well this year. She's been doing movie and drama non stop, gurl had 3 movie and 1 drama in 2009.
pladpuss 14th-Nov-2012 07:04 pm (UTC)
#5 could be chae yeon and definitely not hyori girl is still popular and getting that paper
shining_lore 14th-Nov-2012 07:13 pm (UTC)
I was scared that 5 is Bada, but I'm pretty sure it's Hyori LOL
hagar_tammaa 14th-Nov-2012 07:15 pm (UTC)
5 is an actress I think it's choi jiwoo
pladpuss 15th-Nov-2012 08:21 pm (UTC)
that makes sense
shinyflex 14th-Nov-2012 08:07 pm (UTC)
Son Dambi?
mycorrhizoid 14th-Nov-2012 08:45 pm (UTC)
Nah, she's only 29. And she debuted in 2008, she definitely wasn't popular ten years ago.
muhnaplusmuhna 14th-Nov-2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
I'm actually here for this! Ugh, it's disturbing how much I love blind items!
airyclouds 14th-Nov-2012 08:42 pm (UTC)
I find it hilarious now some are saying #5 is Hyori. She's still a household name. If anything, it's likely an actress or might be ChaeYeon, since her biggest claim to fame was 2005.

The poor cast of Faith though, I've heard similar incentives like this before and it's still unjustifiable for people working on long, tight schedules to NOT be paid their dues. Skeeves!

yesungholic 15th-Nov-2012 11:40 am (UTC)
I'm willing to believe it's ChaeYoen.
