SHINee Onew reveals, “I was ranked 2nd in the whole school when I was in high school 3rd year”



SHINee Onew reveals, “My results in high school 3rd year, I was ranked 2nd in the whole school.”

Onew appeared for ‘Shin Dong Yeop’s 300′ teens special to be aired on 24th January. That day in the filming studio, about 300 students were present and they discussed the problem that teenagers these days are too inclined to look at results as a form of happiness.

SHINee Onew, who was one of the challenger, said, “I used to be very self-conscious about this that I am not able to think in along this side (of the argument). I started practising singing when I went on to high school. But I also studied hard. And in high school year 3, I was ranked 2nd in the whole school” and many were surprised to hear that.

Meanwhile, during the filming, of the 300 students, many thought that, “in the end, having good results will help bring happiness”.

The show is set to air on 24th January at 12.10 midnight.

T-ara to open online shopping mall!

T-ara to open online shopping mall!



T-ara sure is moving on up! The girls have decided to open up their own online shopping mall and take on the title of CEO.

The girls will plan the concept of the shopping mall, setup an office, design the site, choose models, styling as well as handle the sales of the online transactions.

In addition to opening up the site though, there will be an entire reality program, much like Kara Bakery, called T-ara dot com (url not yet revealed).

The girls of T-ara all have a great interest in fashion and style, so much that they all have subscriptions to foreign fashion mags. In addition, it would only make sense that they are and have been highly involved in their own fashion.

Although there is a reality show concept behind this business, make no mistake about it, these girls are not only doing this for the show, they are serious about this business. In fact, T-ara’s stylist, Kim Woori, one of Korea’s best, has agreed to provide T-ara with 100% full support of their business.

With that said, do you trust T-ara’s fashion sense?

Stay tuned for more on the show and their online shopping mall.

Fans appreciate what SBS did


2PM fans are expressing their gratitude to the producers of this weeks SBS Inkigayo, where 2PM held their goodbye stage.

On January 17th, 2PM finished up promotions for their 1st album and performed two tracks, “Tired of Waiting (기다리다 지친다)” and “Heartbeat.” During the intro, prior to their final performances, SBS put the image displayed above and left a blank white spot for leader Jaebeom.

In addition to SBS leaving a space for Jaebeom, the 2PM members themselves left a space in the middle for their leader as well. Fans were really able to feel the love for Jaebeom as they chanted loudly, ‘We’ll be waiting Park Jaebeom. We’ll be waiting 2PM.”

After the show, fans expressed their gratitude:

“Inkigayo thank you so much. Only Inkigayo! PD we love you. We were extremely impressed (heart warming). We won’t forget how you took care of us, thank you.”

It was a great way for 2PM to close out their promotions. I have a feeling there’s going to be quite a big surprise for fans when they return.

SM Entertainment to take legal actions against cartoonist accused of sexual harrassement to SNSD in

It has been known that SM Entertainment will be taking legal actions against the case of cartoons drawn depicting group So Nyeo Shi Dae and said to have sexual harassment and references.

SM Entertainment said over the phone on 18th January, “Our responses to the cartoon author and legal actions have been late due to investigations. Even though the author had issued an apology today, it only regards the misunderstanding caused by the lack of explanation in the cartoon, but no apology to So Nyeo Shi Dae at all. With that we will follow up with legal actions.”

The artiste of the cartoon is webtoon writer Yoon SeoIn. He recently posted a cartoon titled ‘Joy Ride #592 Lady Generation Past Photos’ on a portal site on 2nd January.

In the cartoon, the 9 females depicted as the So Nyeo Shi Dae members were wearing just underwear and seen with a voluptuous expressions.

Yoon SeoIn had posted an apology after articles of the cartoon emerged on 17th January, “An internet news reporter ran an article on this cartoon with his/her own interpretation of it. But my intentions for the cartoon is different from what was said to be in the news articles published on it. It is in my wrong that there is lack of explanation causing the misunderstanding. Sorry for causing the misunderstanding and I apologise to all the readers who have seen the cartoon.”
