YG Family Post

Earlier on the audio for the preview of GD's new solo song "The Leaders (What's Up)" was posted, but here is the video (cut from 2NE1TV/GD TV) of Teddy, GD and CL in the studio working on it.


Regardless of my personal feelings of the song itself, it's always nice to see three generations of YG being so family-like! Plus I always love Teddy's random English. And I love how CL is so normal here :) I like off-stage CL more than on-stage.

Super Junior, how is the profit shared among the members?



Recently, with the issue between DBSG members and SM about sharing the income, Super Junior's story below will bring a warm feeling to you.

On the show MBC Every1 "Now it's time of handsome guys" which was aired on August 11th, MC Park Myungsoo had asked Super Junior's members Donghae & Sungmin, who attended that episode, about the profit sharing among SJ members.

Park Myungsoo said "Super Junior has 13 members, the member who has more activities will earn more, right? So do you guys have any difficulty with it, and how do you do about it?"

Super Junior Donghae said, "Although money is quite a sensitive topic, but we share the money with the members who earn less" and "(so that) they can use in case of necessity" which brought a warm feeling to the filming studio. Park Myungsoo said "it's such a good example" and praise the strong friendship among Super Junior members.

Netizens also show good response toward this "It's such a good example about team mates" and "While (everybody) continues to care about money, I feel relieved (after knowing this)."

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

2NE1 will be going their separate ways for the time being as they go off to enjoy their summer vacation from today.

YG Entertainment expressed on the 12th, "2NE1's Dara, Bom, CL and Minzy will be going for their own vacation from today until 16th August. Since making their debut in May 2009 (sounds like a long time, isn't it?), the 4 girls have been busy practically everyday with training, rehearsals and performances without a break for the past 3 months. We decided to give them a short vacation of five days to let them re-energize themselves."

It's believed that all 4 members will take the opportunity to visit places where they spent their childhood. Bom will head to America, Dara to Philippines, CL to Japan and Minzy will go to her granny's place.

After ending their short summer vacation, 2NE1 will restart their promotions from the 3rd week of August.

It's a semi vacation though as they will be on camera, which you can catch on 2NE1TV soon, so look out for that.

Actress Hwang Returns to Movie



Actress Hwang Soo-jung will return to the silver screen for the first time in two years.

Hwang, 37, starred in "A Time to Leave," the first episode of the omnibus movie "Sai" directed by Eo Il-seon, with actor Ki Tae-young.


She played the role of a wife who falls victim to habitual violence inflicted by her husband. She meets Ki, a seaman and jail-breaker, while traveling and the two fall into love.

In the movie, Hwang shakes off her fixed image of a good-natured woman and shows a much stronger image. The movie is to be released early next year.

Hwang had her acting career suspended in 2001 after being arrested on drug charges. She made a comeback in 2007 with the TV drama "Salt Doll." She starred in the movie "Day and Night" last year.

Dispute Arise Over Suit Against Actress Opposing US Beef Import

Politicians and some civic groups are adding fuel to the public dispute over the suit against actress Kim Min-sun, who allegedly "misled the public to boycott U.S. beef consumption."

Conservative politicians accused her of making ignorant comments while liberals defended her for saying what she believed in.


Rep. Chun Yu-ok of the ruling Grand National Party wrote on her Web site that Kim should be held accountable for what she had said. "I respect the diversity of ideas but when a public figure like Kim makes such an open comment, it should be based on facts. She has a social responsibility to those she speaks to."

The conservative civic group "Liberal Progressive Association" urged Kim to make an apology. "This case shows how much a business corporation can be damaged due to the groundless rumors a single person spreads. We hope Kim will step forward and do what she has to do," it stated.

Liberals, on the other hand, said the suit itself is ridiculous and called Kim a scapegoat of the conservatives and businessmen.

Choi Jae-cheon, lawyer and former lawmaker of the opposition Democratic Party, said there is no reason Kim should be accused.

"There were many other people who made similar comments and A-Meat (which filed the suit) said nothing about them. Kim is a scapegoat: they blame her for everything," he wrote on his Web site.

EBS Apologizes for Copying Japanese TV Program



The Korea Education Broadcasting System (EBS) apologized Tuesday for plagiarizing a Japanese television program. It said "Sci-Fun", a science experiment program, outsourced to a subcontractor, was found to have copycatted a similar Japanese TV program.

The program in question was aired July 23 and carried out experiments regarding musical instruments and paper cup phones.

However, the experiments borrowed ideas from the Japanese program "Odoroki no Arashi", a science experiment program hosted by the popular Japanese pop group Arashi. Plagiarism was first raised as an issue by Arashi fans in Korea.

"We issued an apology to our audience and cancelled the contract with the subcontract producer", an EBS official said. "We will take all steps to stem piracy in the future".

EBS also admitted that another episode of the program, aired last week, involving grafting watermelons and other melons, is suspected of being a copy as well.

Seungri performing "Shouting" without Daesung



Big Bang members Seungri and Daesung were supposed to perform together starting on August 12th for the musical SHOUTING, however because of Daesung's unfortunate accident and needed recovery time, he will not be able to participate in the musical.

Because of this, Seungri started the first performance of SHOUTING without Daesung and had to perform with a backup, most likely they will use this same backup throughout the running of the musical. Many people thought he performed very well. The musical will continue to run until August 23rd.

It has also been reported that all the Big Bang members went to visit Daesung in the hospital as they were all concerned about his well being. Here are the supposed photos of the accident.

tbh I'm not even sure what this musical is about. I know it's based on their success story book released earlier this year, so I thought Seungri would be playing himself, but it doesn't look like it. Also hope Dae gets better soon as well T_T
