GD shares his thoughts on debut, will also be sponsored by Louis Vuitton



*After shooting his first solo stage he had a short meeting with the media and said, "I usually don't get nervous but today I did. It's been a long time since I've performed in Korea but when I saw my fans I got less nervous and enjoyed performing. I've prepared 3 months for the 'Heartbreaker' performance. In the past Bigbang performances I haven't showed much of my dancing so it may be a little weird to see me dancing but I'll try my best to show another side of myself. Many people like Yang Hyunsuk, Teddy, Kush, Taeyang etc. gave a lot of advice. Whenever there was stuff that I didn't know I asked Taeyang who had the solo experience. Its natural that I feel a lack of something after my performance; my first stage was delayed a lot so I think the expectancy dropped a little. However I will improve so the fans can look foward to my performances. If I had to mark my stage today I would give it a 4 out of 10."

I think it's good that she can stay friends with WG and other JYP artists, even if she isn't at the company anymore.

G-Dragon spikes Inkigayo rating



The G-Dragon effect was evidently reflected on the 30th August episode of Inkigayo through the tv ratings and the flood of fans waiting to see him perform live.

G-Dragon had made his long-awaited debut this past Sunday, following the release of his solo album on 18th August. More than 1,000 fans braved the rain to catch G-Dragon in action for the very first time. And fans were rewarded with a double song performance of Heartbreaker and Breathe by G-Dragon.

According to TNS Media Korea, the rating peaked at an impressive 17% when G-Dragon was performing. This was a phenomenal record, considering that usual average ratings for music shows are less than 10%. The average rating for Inkigayo on 30th August was 14.1%, a rise of 2.8 percentage points compared to 16th August.



G-Dragon's title song Heartbreaker and album has also dominated offline and online charts since it's release. And the explosive popularity was reflected on the 28th August episode of Music Bank, where he held off Brown Eyed Girls and 2NE1 to claim his first-ever solo K-Chart win, a result which astonished the Music Bank PDs.

G-Dragon is scheduled to record Kim Jung Eun's Chocolate on 2nd September, followed by his debut stage on Music Bank on 4th September.

Bae Yong-joon’s fans donate to the LSH Foundation



It’s amazing what lengths fans go to to show their love and support for their favourite Hallyu star.

In conjunction with Bae Yong-joon’s 37th birthday on Aug 29, the People Who Love Bae Yong-joon fan club (PESASA) donated approximately 9.4mil won to the Lee Soo-hyun (LSH) Asia Scholarship foundation. The LSH foundation supports Asian students who are studying in Japan.

Lee Soo-hyun was a Korean studying in Japan. On Jan 26, 2001 the selfless man jumped onto the subway tracks at the Shin-Okubo Station to save a drunken Japanese who had fallen over. Lee was killed.

PESASA is a Japan-based fan club that initiated the project for their beloved BYJ. The group rounded up fans from Tokyo, Hokkaido, Aomori and Fukuoka to make the project a success. Two hundred and six BYJ fans donated to the cause, which their idol whole-heartedly supports.

This rather unique birthday present has taken BYJ by surprise. A rep from his agency is flabbergasted by the show of generosity and grateful to the fans for their contribution.

Lee Seung Gi Sings His Love For Kimchi



Singer Lee Seung Gi, the endorser of Samsung Zipel, is becoming very popular among the mothers of Korea. Lee Seung Gi is also known as 'The Nation's Son' and this new CF for Samsung Zipel Kimchi refrigerator expresses why he deserves the title more than anyone else.

In the CF, Lee Seung Gi is off to leave the house when he catches a glimpse of a note his mother left him saying, "Son! I made new kimchi!". From then on that's where the cuteness starts as he begins to eat kimchi with his fingers, closes the door of the fridge with his bottom and so on. But other than the CF itself, I think the jingle, which Lee Seung Gi sings is super adorable! From his sweet voice singing the cute lyrics of "Mom made me kimchi" and his narrations of "Mom, thank you!", you can't help but to love this guy.

SM Did Not Hand In 'TVXQ Documents'



The Preservation of Evidence request that TVXQ's YoungWoong Jaejoong, Micky Yoochun and Xiah Junsu has not been followed through.The Seoul District accepted the three members' request and asked their agency SM Entertainment to hand in all documents relevant to this trial. However, it has been found that SM has not hand in these documents even though the 20 days the Courts gave them expired on the 26th.

These documents are crucial as the Courts even stated at the first hearing on the 21st that they needed documents relevant to this trial to come to a decision. The Courts stated, "After going through all the documents that must be submitted by the 26th, the Courts will come to a decision three weeks later on September 11th."

This is because these documents will determine whether SME's claim that TVXQ earned 49.8 billion Won as well as their claim that SME earned 148.7 billion Won is true or not. This means that TVXQ's income and output will all be revealed. Many fans have stated that the amount SME stated was TVXQ's total earnings was very questionable. A lot of attention was focused on the trial as many believed they would be able to reveal and eliminate all monetary problems and rumors about the agency and the group.

But in truth, it is hard for SME to adhere to this request. If SME submits all documents including account books, receipts and transaction, all their expenses and true income will be revealed. The secrets that may be revealed include 'company secrets' that SME has developed over the years to debut singers.

One representative said, "We have already shown as much as we can for this trial. It is impossible for us to hand in all our documents relevant to this trial."

Many fans have stated that the amount SME stated TVXQ earned was very questionable. They say that all the money from albums, events, CFs, photobooks, DVDs, and other services adds up to a staggering amount. Fans handed in a petition to the Human Rights Commission of Korea on the 28th stating that SME was violating the human rights of TVXQ with their exclusive contract.

4Minute’s “For Muzik” is a Big Hit!



Although 4Minute was hit with unfortunate events such as a ban from KBS. All of that doesn't seem to matter anymore, because their first mini-album sales are experiencing explosive sales.

4Minute's first mini-album "For Muzik," has hit the 20,000 mark, in pre-orders only! Although, that was expected, because their songs are so damn sick. My favorite is "I won't give," unfortunate that it was banned, as I would've loved to see them perform that track.

Anyway, check out the album, mv teaser, and stay tuned for the full music video release of "Muzik" on September 2nd, 2009!

"Jiyoung unnie is shy in front of Taecyeon? The Jiyoung unnie I know would never act in such a way... (laughs) When Taecyeon recorded with me, I thought he was the one who was acting shy. He was so shy and nervous, I even wondered what I should do to make him feel comfortable. I bought him donuts and texted a lot with him to become friendlier. Taecyeon even said that he's more comfortable around me than Jiyoung unnie"
