CNBlue expresses, "We plagarised? It seems unfair."

Officals expressed that the recent news of newly debuted 4-member idol band, CNBlue, plagiarising seemed unfair.

On the morning of 22nd January, CNBlue's company representatives told Money Today Star News through a phone call that the controversy and related news was unfair in many ways. They said that an official statement will soon be released.

Before their debut, CNBlue gained a lot of interest with Jung Yonghwa's appearance in SBS drama, You're Beautiful. Their title song, Lonely, from their first mini album topped the charts after the release on 14th January.

However, some netizens found and claimed several similarities between Lonely and indie band Ynot's digital single, Blue Bird, which was released last year. Netizens say that parts like the introduction and the chorus are similar, hence accusing CNBlue of plagiarism.

On Set Photos with F.cuz for 2nd Jiggy MV

A few weeks ago we reported that F.cuz would release a 2nd version MV for their debut single Jiggy.

It’s been a while since they released this information but they recently updated their website with some photos from the set of the 2nd MV. It features the boys hanging out with a White Nissan 370Z, which was seen in their Teaser, so they may have filmed this around the time of the first MV. The same car was also featured in 4minute’s MV for Muzik. Check out the photos below:

This is for the moment and not final. We do not want to go deep into details as yet but we owe all the members of Omona an explanation; and when the time is right (aka after we finish our discussion) we will explain this.

Comments are screened so I can monitor shit and if need be I will try to answer some questions but don't count on it. Thank you. ♥

10Asia Interviews Lee Seung-gi

10: The photographer said you are good at putting on different expressions, as if you're acting while thinking about a certain situation. What do you think about when you take photos?
Lee Seung-gi (Lee): I noticed that some of my senior actors put on different expressions when they take photos. And it seems that the more I think, the more various expressions I can put on. That's why I imagine I'm acting when I'm being photographed.

10: Are you the type that usually prepares and thinks a lot in advance?
Lee: The president of my agency is strict (laugh) so even if I do start becoming lazy, people around me set me straight so that I can prepare in time. And it's different when I go to a shoot for TV shows with the ad-libs prepared. Even with talk show "Strong Heart," I can think up several dozens of ad-libs if I look at the script enough. But I'll only get to use one of them on the show so I keep thinking of the different situations which could arise on the show.
