So now Korea idols = role models for behaviour? I understand the need for them to be conscious of their behaviour but NEGATIVE EFFECT ON FUTURE GENERATIONS?! To be honest, I really hate it when people blame the media for affecting the behaviour of the ~future generation~ aka "WHAT ARE THE TELEVISION AND INTERNET TEACHING OUR KIDS?!?!" The television and internet are not supposed to teach your kids anything, fucking period. The parents are supposed to do that. /rant

Chanbear must feel like shit now.

SES Eugene: “SM – TVXQ Contract is a Shame.”

SES Eugene expressed sadness regarding contract conflicts between Dong Bang Shin Ki and SM Entertainment.

In the recent SPN interview with Eugene, she said “Not only Dong Bang Shin Ki, there are many entertainers are undergoing a contract relation difficulties. It’s more like the artist who is engaged to the contract is not familiar with the contract itself.”

“Being compared to the past, I don’t know if improvement has already been made. The past period contract was relatively too long and not flexible.”

Eugene explained the reason why after a rookie gained popularity, he/she tends to involve in conflict with the agency, “When being a rookie, you don’t know anything. The officers asked to hold the contract term and conditions without any understandings from the artist. However, when the artist has already been aware, he/she finally read carefully the agreement details in the contract, that’s when most likely conflict starts to arise.”

“It’s also because the contract difficulty which rookie are having difficulties to follow. Agency should consider to set more flexible terms and conditions that has variables to adapt depending on the changing environments.”

SM Entertainment speaks up after photos of Super Junior members HanKyung and famous Chinese broadcaster Jia Ling were uploaded on a Chinese portal site.

A SM Entertainment representative said on 22nd, “HanKyung, Jia Ling and 7 other had went to play pool together. Even though they had all played pool together, it seems that HanKyung and Jia Ling stood out in the crowd.”

HanKyung is currently very popular in Korea, and is being followed by paparazzi often with much interests on him.

The SM representative said, “(HanKyung is being) tired out all the popularity. Because of the paparazzi, HanKyung is very tired.”

“There was also an earlier case where there were photos of HanKyung taken only with a female actress, when they had went out together as a whole drama team after filming, uploaded online. All these have caused HanKyung to be very tired.”

TVXQ Changmin to start filming soon

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki's front man Yunho won't be the only one partaking in all the drama, DBSK's maknae Changmin will co-star with fellow SM Entertainment member Lee Yeon Hee in a drama of their own called "Paradise Meadow / Ranch." Paradise Meadow is a joint production between Samhwa Networks and SM Entertainment.

Star News is reporting that Changmin will officially begin filming for the drama in early September. Which should get some fans (especially Reina) happy. There's no official word yet on when the drama will actually air.

So it seems as Jaejoong, Xiah, and Micky are partaking in one type of drama... with SM Entertainment. While Yunho and Changmin will participate in another type of drama, fans would much prefer the latter.

Penelope is pretty.

'Misuda' Girl Creates Controversy With Her Book

A popular female TV celebrity from Germany is creating a heated debate, if not controversy, with her book that apparently focused on the less than glamorous side of the Korean society.

Vera Hohleiter, a panel member of the popular KBS2 TV show, "Chat With Beauties" also called "Misuda" published a book in Germany, apparently highlighting her negative experience in Korea.

In the TV program, Hohleiter said on a number of occasions that she "fell in love with Korea." Her book, however, indicates otherwise, according to a South Korean blogger who lives in Germany and read the book.

On Thursday night, the blogger who identified herself as "a Korean student studying in Germany" posted a piece on a popular Korean Internet web forum. She said she bought a book, titled "Sleepless Night in Seoul" written by Hohleiter and gave it to a German friend as a gift.

Not long after, her German friend came back to ask her: "Is everything written in the book true?"
