Yoon Suh-in's "Girls' Generation" cartoon, "sexual harassment" ruckus



Webtoon artist Yoon Suh-in's Girls' Generation-related cartoon has fallen under controversy.

Last February, Yoon Suh-in uploaded a cartoon titled "Ladies' Generation's Past" on an internet portal site.

This cartoon depicts the scantily clad members of Girls' Generation in their 'past' look and another where they greet the New Year by pounding rice cakes. On one side are the strange comments, "I want to go to the commissioners.." (tn: incomplete) and "Oh... this is good too..."

After seeing this, the Girls' Generation fans left attacks and disparaging remarks such as "He sexually harassed Girls' Generation" and "It's too shameful to look at." Especially in the 'past' look, they considered the poses of the members and Yuri's expression (in the middle of the group) overt cases of sexual harassment.

Yoon also drew a cartoon where the subject was Girls' Generation. At that time, he called members Yoona, Yuri, and Sooyoung "The Pretty 3" and revealed that "At first, Yoona caught my eye, then I started to see Yuri sometimes, and lately it's Sooyoung." Also, the remaining members were called "The Nobody 5" and eventually drew the last member with a simple dot, gaining criticism.

Shin Ae-ra, upon hearing that the guest house that she stayed in three years ago (with the 10-year-old girl she has now been sponsoring for four years) had been destroyed by the earthquake, said that her "world seemed to go dark." Further, recalling the meeting with the little girl, she began, "The girl who would smile and laugh and shy away when I approached, her eyes filling with fear, how hungry she must feel..." but was unable to finish her words.

Joo Younghoon and Lee Yunmi, a couple that has also been sponsoring in Haiti, admitted that they "look at the children being rescued from the wreckage and worry that maybe our child is one of them" but added that they hope and "pray that we will be able to see the children again."

At this, the netizens left words of encouragement such as "I think I understand how it would feel to see the disaster as a parent" "I hope the children are safe" "I hope you get good news soon" and were unable to hide their anxiousness.

snsd back to work



SNSD started the sweet recharging period in preparation for their return to the stage in February.

The vacation, starting from early this month ending circa Jan 15th, is valuable in the sense that it represents a reward to the members for the restless year of 2009.

A related person stated on the 14th that "Each of the members started the vacation on the 2nd and now plan to actively work on the new album."

The new album to be issued in Feb will contain Gee and Tell me Your Wish and some of their new songs as well. Another related person commented that "you will feel the more matured beauty of SNSD".

So they had about 13 days vacation overall. This seems pretty standard (for SM artists, anyway). But considering they really had a very active period of promotions these last six months and are about to embark on another one, I hope they'll be okay.

With Heartbeat promotions finally wrapping up this evening, it has been announced that 2PM will be taking a break as a group so taht individual members can pursue individual activities for a while.

JYP Entertainment expressed on January 17 that 2PM’s last activities for now would take place that day on Inkigayo. “The members are going to take time to rest and work in various solo activities,” a rep said.

It has been confirmed that Taecyeon and Wooyoung will continue as MCs on SBS Inkigayo, and Taecyeon will begin filming for his role on Family Outing Season 2 at the end of this month. Furthermore, Nichkhun will begin filming for The Shining Diploma next month. Junsu, Junho and Chansung will also have various solo activities of their own during this break period of sorts.

I guess it was kind of expected, but that means no promotions for the collaboration track Tik Tok with Ke$ha Yoon Eun Hye for Cass Beer.

For those of you that are already missing the 2PM boys, worry not – the boys are set to return this April with a new album.

F.CUZ Kan injured his left ankle during dance practice



Despite having suffered an injury to his left ankle, Kan from 'Model Idol' F.cuz showed his fighting spirit by using crutches and going up on stage.

On the afternoon of 15 Jan, F.cuz completed their stage performance on KBS Music Bank and attended the dance rehearsal for the remix version of their song in the practice room. During rehearsal, Kan got injured as he overstretched the ligament while turning his left ankle for a tumbling practice. The other member, LeeU, also sustained an injury to his right little toe.

The remix version of F.CUZ's song will add acrobatics to the existing dance moves, and this increased the level of difficulty by another notch. The enthusiasm of the members grew, which has indirectly led to the injuries.

"Kan was immediately sent to the hospital and had to use crutches. As his ankle was very very swollen, we had to let him use the crutches," a spokesperson of F.CUZ mentioned during a phonecall with Newsen.

However, the biggest problem lies in their schedule. This is because F.CUZ, who has officially started their activities for debut song 'JIGGY', was scheduled to perform on Show! Music Core and SBS Inkigayo on 16th and 17th respectively.

The staff members tried to persuade Kan to rest, but it was revealed that Kan had simply just said, "I will definitely go on stage. I won't die from this extent of injury. This is an important period as we have just started our activities, so I can't give up." In the end, Kan took painkillers and attended the dry rehearsal for Show! Music Core in the afternoon of the 16th. After the rehearsal, he visted the hospital again.

"Kan is very firm in his intention to be on stage. He will fulfill all his scheduled activities on Show! Music Core and Inkigayo this week," said a spokesperson of F.CUZ.

On the other hand, F.CUZ has been scheduled to display their "upgraded" and new choreography next week.

F.Cuz’s LeeU got a chance to be part of the OST for 2008 SBS drama Sikgaek. At that time, he was 19-years-old and he sang Listen to You. He showed off this great vocals though he wasn’t a debuted singer at the time.

Now, two years later, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun is singing in a remix of his hubae’s original track. For the new MBC drama Pasta, he sings Listening… to that person (듣죠… 그대를).

Fans have been commenting, “I knew Kyuhyun could sing but I did not know LeeU could sing so well,” and “It’s the same song but they both have different sounds.”

Netizens have also created a version where they can hear LeeU’s voice through the left speaker and Kyuhyun’s on the right. LeeU said, “It was my first solo song so I was really nervous. Kyuhyun sunbaenim pulled it off very well!”

It’s kind of funny that a sunbae did a remake of a hubae’s song, since it’s usually the other way around.
