I wonder what role could he possibly be given? Junsu's long lost brother? Junsu's dad? Heechul singing with Junsu's crazy mom would make my life.

SuJu's new dancing machine?

EunHyuk and LeeTeuk couldn't join the members for fun at the beach and spectacular night views (as according to SungMin) the Sorry Sorry performance at Evergreen concert. Guess who took over Hyukie's dance solo in Sorry Sorry?

FT Island, Plagiarizes From English Band?



FT Island gets involved in plagiarism issues with song from their new album.

According to a particular discussion forum, there were criticisms saying that “Bing Bing Bing“, song from FT Island’s 3rd album, resembles English band, McFly’s “Five Colours In Her Hair“.

Some netizens uploaded both songs on blogs and communities, and pointed out that the interlude for both songs are similar.

However, based on the tele-conversation between FT Island’s management and one of the reporters, they revealed that they “didn’t know about it” and that they will investigate the issue and give their stand.

According to the Korea Music Copyright Association, the composer for “Bing Bing Bing” was registered under the name “HOONY”, and without any statements of samplings or remakes of the song.

Apparently a fan (or maybe more) filed a complaint to Mcfly's management (from what I read) and they're probably screwed if it turns out to be plagarized..

big bang's daesung's opinion on tvxq lawsuit



I: Three members of TVXQ are in a lawsuit. How did you feel after hearing that?

DS: I've been to Japan. TVXQ's popularity is even more extreme than we can imagine. Sad. I'm quite close with Yoonho hyung since we were on the same program; we still contact each other. I'm not sure why, but I hope it ends well.

Donghae: "I've scolded Jonghyun because of his manners."



Super Junior Donghae revealed the time when he had to scold Jonghyun.

Donghae and Sungmin talked about SHINee before debut (and now) on MBC Every1 Flower Boy's Generation. SHINee was known to greet their sunbaes before debut and even now with full manners but ever since SHINee's 'Repackaged Album' came out, Jonghyun's greeting changed a bit. Donghae couldn't do anything but to scold him. Donghae said because they're in the same company and they're very close, it didn't bother him but he was worried what other sunbaes would think if Jonghyun greeted this way. He revealed that he didn't want others/sunbaes to think bad of Jonghyun.

Flower Boy's Generation will air on the 11th.

Wang Biho’s Second Strike At The Brown Eyed Girls



Comedian Yoon Hyunbin, who plays the famous insulting character Wang Biho, poked fun at the Brown Eyed Girls a second time as the girls came to watch KBS 2TV's "Gag Concert".

The Brown Eyed Girls had previously come to watch the show a few months ago and Wang Biho started off his corner with a compliment saying "You came last time and you came again. You guys got prettier." But it wasn't long until Wang Biho attacked saying, "But why did you come with black drawings on your eyes? Especially you GaIn, you're a trend these days. You have the same line as 2NE1's CL." as he teased the members about their smokey eye makeup.

Also Wang Biho continued with his harsh comments. "As soon as Brown Eyed Girls' new album's title song 'Abracadabra' was released it went up on music charts instantly but at the same time it was also ranked to be the number one song that was illegally downloaded. That means the song is a waste to hear by paying for it. They just want to download it and listen, that's all."

Then Wang Biho went on as he danced to 'Abracadabra' saying "This concept is wearing hot pants and eyeliner, just like the female Wang Biho" and brought laughter. Wang Biho even danced to SNSD/Girls' Generation's "Tell Me Your Wish" and Super Junior's "Sorry Sorry".

Wonder Girls “We have to eat Korean meals to gain strength”



Don’t you miss Korea?
Truthfully, more than Korea, we miss Korean food. We have to eat a Korean meal within at least 2 days to gain strength. Regardless of where we are in America, we always search on Google for the nearest Korean restaurant.
The tour bus has emergency rations of kimchi, pollack pickled fish, stirred seaweed, and seasoned squid. We even bought Korean ice cream, but the tour bus refrigerator is not cold enough so they all melted. However, they are delicious so we dug in and ate the melted ice cream anyways.
We don’t have to worry about rice cakes because the fans always prepare some for us wherever we go. The moment we open the box of rice cakes, producer JYP and the representatives dash towards us and eat it all, leaving no left-overs. (laughs) (JYP really loves rice cakes so his nickname became “rice cake-eating gorilla’).

I was informed that the tour bus is luxurious.
If it was luxurious, we would have no issues with the refrigerator. It’s not the bus that was revealed online. There are several company vehicles. The brand is the same (Hyundai Motors), but they’re all different cars.

How is life in America?
We began living in New York first. We studied English with friends from all over the world, and do some personal studying on our own. We speak strictly English with our staff members.
Producer JYP teaches us the most. Rather than pronunciation, he wants us to focus on understanding the language. It makes teaching the dance more fun.
When we’re in Korea, we hide the fact that we are Wonder Girls and long to enjoy a private life, but here we have to publicly announce “We are the Wonder Girls.”
Although there are only 20-30 people out of the massive crowd who come to see us, it’s really nice to be greeted with the fans’ placards. It’s a different feeling than the packed crowd of fans in Korea.

Pop Goes the Contract


There is a fairly decent overview of the contract situation faced by entertainers in Korea over in today's Joongang Ilbo. Using the lawsuit Dong Bang Shin Gi (aka TVXQ) has filed against SM Entertainment as the peg, the article looks at the long and onerous contracts that most entertainers in Korea have to have, especially singers.

As you have probably heard, on July 31, three members of DBSG filed suit against its management company, claiming their contract is unfair. DBSG is one of SME's most popular bands these days, and is doing especially well in Japan, where they recently played two nights in the Tokyo Dome. The band's complaints were mostly the same things we have heard over and over again in Korea over the years -- their contracts are too long, their contracts do not pay enough, the penalties for leaving the management company are too severe, the performers do not have enough control over their own careers, the performers are not paid enough (probably the biggest issue).

I do not want to get into the details of DBSG's particular case. That is something for the Korean courts to decide. But I do think that cases like these bring up a much bigger point.

'Mother' to represent Korea for Oscars

Thriller beats out vampire flick and farmer documentary



SEOUL -- "Mother," the latest feature from Bong Joon-ho, has been selected to represent Korea for the best foreign-language film in the next year's Oscar.

The strength of the story's narrative, its potential for a wide release in the U.S. and the director's reputation were considered as priorities for the final contender, the Korean Film Council said.

Six films were submitted to compete for the Korean finalist including Yu Ha's "Frozen Flower," Park Chan-wook's "Thirst" and Lee Chung-ryul's "Old Partner," and were reviewed by a jury that included director Lee Myung-se ("Nowhere to Hide").

"Mother" was released domestically in May, and garnered more than 3 million admissions, falling below the score of the director's previous films like "The Host," which set the record as the biggest boxoffice hit in Korean film history, with 13 million filmgoers.


The story, set in a rural village, traces the battle of an anxious mother (Kim Hye-ja) out to prove the innocence of her mentally challenged son (Won Bin) who is accused of murdering a high school girl. The film premiered at Cannes in May.

Warners offers Bruce Lee role to Rain. OH HELLLLL NAW


South Korean pop singer/actor Rain was offered the lead role in the Warner Bros. remake of Bruce Lee's kung fu flick "Enter the Dragon," J Tune Entertainment, Rain's agency, confirmed Thursday.

J Tune, however, added that Rain hasn't made a decision, and refused to discuss details.

The 27-year old actor stars as an assassin in the Wachowski Brothers' upcoming "Ninja Assassin" set for release in November.

"Enter the Dragon," which is considered one of Bruce Lee's most popular films in the West, and the last before his death, delves into a Shaolin monk (Lee) who is assigned to expose illegal activities on an island. For the film's contemporary take, the company has hired writer Kurk Sutter (also the co-producer for American TV drama "The Shield").

J Tune Entertainment said only that Rain is currently preparing for his next Asian concert tour later this year.

Brown Eyed Girls GaIn, “I watched adult films and learnt a lot”



Member GaIn Brown Eyed Girls, who was once criticised for the provocative bed scene included in the MV to their title song ‘Abracadabra’ off their comeback album ‘Sound G’, revealed that she has learnt a lot through watching adult films.

GaIn said on Maybee’s KBS radio show on 9th August, “I have never had any skinship with man.” and Narsha added, “Without this kind of experience, you are unable to express the feelings to the scene.” GaIn continued, “I really have no experience to this and I am pretty conservative. But I learnt a lot through watching adult films.

GaIn added, “The adult film was a gift from fans.” which took the MC Maybee by surprise. Narsha added, “The adult film CD was given by a fan with the words ‘Garden Diary’.”

Meanwhile, Brown Eyed Girls ‘Abracadabra’ is going very strong up on various music sites.
