Victory Performs More Than His Role in Musical 'Shouting'


A scene from musical “Shouting”

The car accident and subsequent absence of Dae-sung, the member of popular idol group Big Bang who was scheduled to star in the musical "Shouting" alongside Victory, also of the group, seemed to cast a dark cloud over the show.

However, Victory wiped out all worries and stole the limelight in the musical based on the trials and tribulations of the group.


The show is the first joint production of YG Entertainment, a local pop agency, and Seol & Company, one of the country's major musical production companies.

The musical has drawn much attention due to the casting of the pop stars, and aims to attract the teenage market.

North Korea to reopen border with South?


SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea, whose relations with South Korea have turned increasingly bitter, said on Monday it had agreed to reopen its border with its neighbor and allow tourism and family reunions to resume.

But in a sign that tensions on the peninsula still run high, North Korea's KCNA news agency immediately followed the report with one that the entire country was being put on alert over joint military exercises by South Korea and the United States.

The agreement to ease restrictions on the border follows a meeting between the reclusive state's leader Kim Jong-il and the head of the South Korean Hyundai Group who had gone to Pyongyang to seek the release of a detained worker.

The visit followed hot on the heels of one earlier in the month by former U.S. President Bill Clinton to win the release of two jailed U.S. journalists.

KCNA said Kim on Friday "granted a long audience to and had a cordial talk with Hyon Jong Un, chairperson of the Hyundai Group, and her party on a visit to Pyongyang, and complied with all her requests."

The giant Hyundai Group heads up tourism to the North as well as a joint factory just across the border which is an important source of income for the impoverished state's leadership.

Tourism has ground to a halt and the industrial park itself looked under threat as relations between the two, technically at war for more than half a century, worsened after South Korea's conservative President Lee Myung-bak took office 18 months ago ending a free flow of aid unless his neighbor gave up its nuclear weapons program.

Under the agreement, land passage across their heavily armed border, tightly restricted at the end of last year, will be resumed and the scenic Mt Kumgang resort reopened.

North Korea will also allow the start again of the emotionally charged reunion of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War in October.

There was no word on whether Hyundai had agreed, as part of the latest deal, to recent demands by North Korea for a large increase in wages for workers in the Kaesong industrial park.

Sandara Park Interview on ABS-CBN Entertainment Live



Entertainment Live is a Philippine showbiz (err...popular media, gossip, entertainment news....) talk show on ABS-CBN Channel 2. ABS-CBN was Sandara's home station when she was still in the Philippines. She was interviewed here by Toni Gonzaga and Luis Manzano, the former being one of the MCs during Sandara's Star Circle Quest era so I guess the station thought it was appropriate since she's been with Sandara ever since she first came out on Philippine TV.

They talk to her about 2NE1 and ask her annoying materialistic questions-- trans in the cut.

After the show, she was able to greet the fans. They gave her gifts for YG family and the other 2NE1 members, which she talked about on her me2day here. That's about it.

Haeundae eyes the 10 million ticket threshold



Despite being several weeks into its release, eyes are on disaster film Haeundae this weekend at the box office as the film is expected to break the 9 million mark in viewers.

As of reports on Saturday morning, the 15th, the film has sold more than 8.5 million tickets, putting it squarely at #5 in the all-time Korean box-office list. It recently surpassed the #7 film Friend (8.18 million), #6 Speed Scandal (8.21 million), and #5 D War (8.43 million).

There have only been four movies to break 10 million, and people are curious to see whether Haeundae will join them. They are: #4 Silmido (11.08 million), #3 Taegukgi (11.74 million), #2 King and the Clown (12.3 million), and #1 The Host (13.02 million).

If Haeundae manages to hit the 10 million mark, its stars Ha Ji-won and Sol Kyung-gu will join their colleagues Song Kang-ho and Jang Dong-gun as 10-million-ticket actors, earning Ha Ji-won the distinction of being the first woman in the club. (King and the Clown did star Kang Sung-yeon and The Host included Bae Doo-na, but they aren’t considered “10-million-ticket” actresses; they weren’t the lead draws and were part of the subplots.)

Wowowowow those 4 films that broke the 10million mark.

DBSK Fancafe’s Prosecution Application About SMTOWN LIVE ‘09 Postponement



On last August 14th, DBSK fancafe submitted a prosecution application to Korea Consumer Protection Board with subject ‘The postpone of SMTOWN LIVE ‘09′.

The fancafe explained their background of accusation, “They acted unilaterally in postponing the concert, without consideration and fooling all the consumers who had already bought the concert tickets. Thus, we submitted this application.”

In the statement which DBSK fancafe submitted to Korea Consumer Protection Board, they mentioned, “SMTOWN LIVE ‘09 which is scheduled to be held on August 16th is indefinitely postponed.

The postpone was announced a week ago (August 7th) with the reason that DBSK’s case status will make the whole SM family couldn’t unite in the concert.

However, on August 14th when SM released SMTOWN Summer album ‘09, they promoted the song by stressing it as ‘a song which shows friendship among the young men‘ which shows a whole contradictory.”

DBSK fancafe demanded not only full refund of their tickets, but also 10% admission fee as compensation and official apology from SM Entertainment.
