Korea Ranked 8th 'Most Sinful Country'



Korea spends more money on pornography than any other country, according to BBC magazine Focus. The magazine analyzed 35 countries in the world based on the seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride.
The top 10 countries in the respective fields were listed.

The level of lust was calculated based on the amount of money spent on pornography per capita. What it means by pornography, and what kind of data was used for the analysis remain unclear. Korea was followed by Japan, Australia and Finland.

Korea ranked sixth in gluttony, which was topped by the United States, followed by Canada, Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom. "We gauged excessive sexual thoughts for each nation using the average annual income per capita from the porn industry, divided by the price of a Big Mac hamburger -- a measure of the cost of living in that nation. This gives an indication of the amount spent on porn per person," the magazine wrote.

Averaging the scores each country received in seven fields, the magazine made up an overall ranking. Korea earned 10 points for being the top finisher in lust, and five points for being in sixth place for gluttony. With the total, Korea was the eighth most sinful country in the world. Australia came top with whopping 46 points, and the U.S. next with 32 points. Canada was in third with 24 points, and Japan amassed 16 points in total, being second in lust and fourth in gluttony, finishing seventh overall.

Rude rude rude: SHINee fans get up before the concert ends



Fans leave midway after listening to SHINee finish two songs!

Performing for seasoned, famed composer Oh Joonsung’s Korean Drama Favourites showcase, Korean boyband SHINee rounded off the concert for both nights.

When staff workers moved microphones up on stage during the last 20 minutes of the showcase, fans, which made up most of the audience, started getting excited and screams began to resonate in the concert hall.

SHINee performed two songs during the showcase, both composed by Oh Joonsung and featured in two different drama OSTs as well. After [Countdown], theme song of drama Dream, the five of them performed [Stand By Me], accompanied by Green Caocao (T/N: Mr Oh’s awesome band), the local strings section and Oh Joonsung himself.

The five did their best on stage and brought the entire showcase to its climax. Having waited since the beginning of the showcase for about an hour, there was no stopping the fans from screaming their lungs out and in the process, ignoring SHINee’s prowess at singing.

Despite the ban on both photography and videography, fans were all taking down the precious 8 minutes of SHINee’s performance.

After SHINee’s performance, about 60 members of the audience, all fans, rushed out of the concert hall in order to queue for a short fansign after the entire showcase. The showcase was still going on, and because SHINee fans occupied most of the front row seats, it was extremely awkward when they walked out just like that.

Despite being upstaged by SHINee, Oh Joonsung was still gracious and polite. Speaking in English, he assuaged the situation by telling the audience “I love SHINee”, “SHINee are my friends”, and won the applause of everyone present (T/N: You mean those that didn’t leave)

After news broke of the fans leaving, netizens have been commenting on various SHINee related sites, stating that those fans were “rude” and “embarrassing”.

"U-Kiss vs. Sean Kingston"

By U-Kiss vs. Sean Kingston, we’re referring to the songwriters and producers of these two acts. Reggae-pop artist Sean Kingston scored a top 5 smash hit last year with RedOne (Grammy Award winning producer of Lady Gaga’s smash hits).

Meanwhile in Korea, U-Kiss began to rise in popularity with the help of kpop hit-maker Brave Brothers. Just as RedOne shaped the sound of pop music today, the same can be said about Brave Brothers with K-pop. Although it’s true Brave Brothers’ released material has had a great influence in K-pop music, there has always been a question of originality behind his tunes.

Recently he’s been accused of plagiarizing Kat Deluna for his single “Invisible” and using an unauthorized sample of Fancy for Son Dambi’s “On A Saturday Night.”

Bang Bang Bang” is a newly released track off of U-Kiss’ debut album produced entirely by Brave Brothers. U-Kiss’ track shares an almost identical riff and crafted synth featured in Sean Kingston’s track.

Compare the two tracks here:

U-Kiss - Bang Bang Bang & Sean Kingston - Fire Burning

Wheesung composes a song for T-ara, Fans want all 6 members

Wheesung composes a song for T-ara

We reported earlier that girl group T-ara would be returning later this month with a repackaged album as courtesy for ending their album promotions early. It’s now been revealed that singer Wheesung has participated as a composer for the album!



Although Wheesung’s style of music is nothing like T-ara’s Bo Peep Bo Peep or Like The First Time, it is said that he has done a wonderful job.

T-ara’s label stated that Wheesung’s stylish choice of lyrics works well with the melody and will make T-ara’s performance stand out even more. It was also revealed that when Wheesung first heard the demo, he liked how different it was from T-ara’s usual style of music and therefore agreed to participate.

So what’s this track going to be like? T-ara’s representative is saying think, Ivy’s Sonata of Temptation. If you recall, Wheesung was the composer of that song and it was a spectacular hit. The representative of the group guarantees that I go crazy because of you (너 때문에 미쳐) is going to be another fan favorite.

The repackaged album, “Breaking Heart,” is scheduled to drop on February 23rd.

T-ara fans worried about Jiyeon and Soyeon's absence

With 2 members out, T-ara fans are worried if they will get to see a 6-membered T-ara on stage once again. Core Contents Media has spoken up about this, "Soyeon was diagnosed with H1N1 last week. We expect her to still be diagnosed till next week and we will give her enough rest and not push her. The date for the release is still 3 weeks away and we're making sure Soyeon is ready". Member Jiyeon was also absent for most of their promotions for "Like the First Time" due to conflicts in schedule with her hit drama "God of Study". But Core Contents Media are already making sure that Jiyeon will be present for their "comeback".

Wonder Girls’ Newest Member HaeLim Integrates Into Group

Photobucket

WONDERGIRLS has restructured itself as a result of newest member HaeLim coming aboard. After SunMi’s announced withdrawal last month, the preceding plan was to involve her in group activities until late-February, & then begin to mix in HaeLim from the month of March. But the transition period has been brought forward somewhat.

Beginning February 4 with CF activities in Sanya, China [the city is located on Hainan island], HaeLim will publicly appear as a WONDERGIRLS member for the first time. To this end, she had parted company with the others on January 27 & then joined the group to go overseas to China on February 2. After finishing China promotions, she will head to America to participate in recording sessions for WONDERGIRLS’s official debut album.

WONDERGIRLS had begun recording for the debut album in America since late last year. Because the plan was to publish it in late February, SunMi had participated in the recordings. However, her abrupt decision to exit resulted in an unavoidable change. After careful deliberations over whether to keep SunMi’s vocals in the album, the decision was made to enroll HaeLim & let her re-record the parts. The anticipated album release date is also delayed till April or so.

Separately, SunMi is not involved in the China CF activities & has remained behind in New York. The JYP camp said that she will have already left WONDERGIRLS when the CF is aired, & was thus not included in the China promotions. SunMi will join the ‘Pop-Con Concert’ on February 20 at the Nassau Coliseum in America, before biding farewell to WONDER GIRLS.

Globally Minded Cubs Mining Korea



When Korean shortstop Hak-Ju Lee reports to the Cubs' Minor League camp this spring, he should have a better grasp of the English language, thanks to The Carpenters.

A 19-year-old infielder from Jeonju, South Korea, Lee turned to karaoke last year to complement his language lessons. His singing talents were showcased at a Class A Boise booster club event at the end of the 2009 season, and his rendition of "Superstar" can be seen in a YouTube video.

"They're here by themselves," said interpreter Min Sung of the Koreans in the Cubs' system. "They don't shop much. They go to dinner and sing karaoke. In the Midwest, the entertainment is going to Wal-Mart and Target."

"As long as they're learning English, I don't care what they do," Cubs player development director Oneri Fleita said.

2AM’s no-show on Music Core for 3 weeks, MBC “There is no discord”



Much attention has been brought to the rumoured discord between 4-member vocal 2AM and MBC Music Core.

This is because 2AM had not appeared on Music Core and performed their new song ‘Even if I die, I will not let you go’ for even once. In addition, for the show coming 6th February, 2AM will also not be performing. With that, 2AM has yet to perform on the show even though it has been 3 weeks since they released their new album.

Usually, Kpop singers will appear on all 3 weekly music shows KBS Music Bank, MBC Music Core and SBS Inkigayo to promote their songs. And for 2AM, they released their new album on 21st January and from pre-release to after-release currently the song is doing very well up on music charts.

So far, 2AM has appeared on KBS Music Bank to perform twice (22nd and 29th January), and 2 times on SBS Inkigayo (24th and 31st January). And coming 5th and 7th February, there are plans for them to perform on the 2 shows.

But with their continual no-show on Music Core, there has been rumours about disagreement between 2AM and MBC.

And many point decision for 2AM leader Jo Kwon to appear on SBS Family Outing 2 as the possible root of this discord. Jo Kwon has been quite prominent in the variety show zone with his funny appearance on MBC We Got Married and SaeGaKwi, which even earned him the nickname of ‘Kkap Kwon’.

MBC felt that they have given him much opportunities in this area, and now they are feeling unhappy that Jo Kwon will be appearing on the variety show of the competitor broadcast company.

MBC side revealed, “Especially since he was decided as the fixed appearance on We Got Married, normally they would refrain from doing fixed show appearance on shows by other companies. With this, MBC is feeling a little unhappy with 2AM’s company about it. With that you can see that 2AM did not appear on MBC Music Core. But that being said, we felt that 2AM’s side was being unfair in some aspects too.”

But their stand is that there is no discord with 2AM. The show team official said during an interview on 3rd Feb, “This is ridiculous. There is definitely no discord with 2AM’s company. The 2AM members are still appearing on other MBC programmes. 2AM like any other singers, will be able to perform on MBC Music Core.” during their recently interview.

2AM’s side also said on 4th February, “There is no discord with MBC.”

U-Kiss' comeback has been receiving a lot of attention.

U-Kiss' 1st full album 'U-Kiss 1st Only One' has been released on the 3rd. Just after 1 day of it's release, the album has made it to #1 on Hanteo charts and is doing well on other music sites, Hottracks and Synnara Records, Evan Records, and in offline stores. The hot response is even more eye-catching than Girls' Generation's comeback with "Oh!", doing better than them.


www.hanteo.com

This album's title track "Round Round" is produced by the Brave Brothers and the lyrics are addictive with the repetitive bingeul bingeul in the chorus and strong beat.

U-Kiss is scheduled to be making their comeback stages on the 5th on KBS 2TV's Music Bank, on the 6th on MBC's Show Musiccore and on the 7th on SBS's Inkigayo.

Rookie boyband MBLAQ reveals, “Even Rain gave up on us.”

MBLAQ appeared for the recent filming of KBS 2TV Star GoldenBell when they talked about it.

During the filming session, MC Jeon HyunMoo said, “I heard that Rain will monitor MBLAQ when you go on variety shows, what are his responses?” And G.O said, “He said he will monitor our image for the 1st 2 months when we debuted, but from the 3rd month, hyung is now helpless and said ‘You guys do whatever you want!’.” The members revealed that after that, they just did what they like on variety shows, rousing laughters from the other guest appearances.

2AM SeulOng said, “JinYoung hyung also said that to us at first, like don’t do that, or try to act moderately, but he went to the States.”

The show will air on 6th February.

Wonder Girls cancel tour after Sun Mi announces departure



The Korean pop group Wonder Girls have cancelled their headlining tour of the United States, which was supposed to start at the end of February.

It seems all of these decisions were made after one of their members, the 18-year-old Sun Mi, called it quits last month to return to school. The CEO of the company that manages the group, JYP Entertainment’s Park Jin-young, first cancelled the U.S. tour and postponed their U.S. debut album release for April.

“The upcoming tour wasn’t going as planned and postponing their U.S. album release was an inevitable situation,”

Raunchy Music Videos Rule as Korean Youngsters Cherry-Pick Downloads

Middle and high school students are overwhelmingly au fait with the latest pop music videos but carefully sift the grain from the chaff online before downloading the ones they like on their portable gadgets.

A survey of 86 high school and 65 middle school students at a crammer in Noryangjin and another in Mia-dong, Seoul by the Chosun Ilbo reveals that 109 out of 151 had watched the music video for Brown Eyed Girls' "Abracadabra," while 42 and 35 students had seen the raunchy videos for "No Love No More" by Park Jin-young and "Touch Me" by Ivy. Asked by which one or more means they prefer to watch them, 72 percent said the Internet, 18 chose PMP or MP4 players, and 10 mobile phones, indicating that they pick a handful of clips they watch online for repeat viewing.

Industry insiders say it now costs an average of W10-20 million (US$1=W1,164) to produce a music video. Only seven or eight years ago there were plenty of "blockbuster" videos made for billions of won. But the seismic shift in the music industry brought on by online distribution has shifted the trend from high concept to raunchy videos, which are bound to hook adolescent viewers and cost little to make. Music video director Seo Hyun-seung said, "Because girl groups don't differ much musically, they compete in the end by trying to appeal with more graphic visual imagery."

Ko's bold fashion ensemble created not only an immediate stir, but also served as a hint to wedding vendors.

According to industry sources, premium dress shops, travel agencies, jewelry brands and beauty salons are all competing to let the 37-year-old bride-to-be know that they can provide her with whatever she wishes.

However, for a recently shot CF (commercial film), there was no storm of netizens going buck wild for the kiss between the two stars in the CF. Why? Because the couple is already married with a child on the way, so their kiss was no biggie.

Celebrity couple, Tablo of Epik High and Kang Hye Jung, is known for their PDA (Public Display of Affection) and they continued to publicly shower each other with love even during the shoot of an unspecified CF in Gyeonggi-do.

UEE is going back to acting


After School’s UEE is coming back as an actress in the upcoming drama Buddy Buddy. She will be playing a country girl who dreams about being a national golf player.

Her character, Sung Mi Soo, grabs a golf club at a young age and is inspired to play for the rest of her life. She’s from a poor family but she works hard to achieve her dream and make her family proud.

The casting directors wanted to find someone who looked very healthy and fit for this role. They also wanted someone who was generally interested in sports. UEE is known for having honey thighs specially made from swimming. So in terms of athletics, UEE was the perfect fit.

Buddy Buddy’s director said, “She’s taken over the music and endorsement fields but not the acting field just yet. She is working to build a new image for herself and will definitely progress in terms of acting.” UEE said, “The director told me to act natural but acting and playing golf is really hard. I will have sleepless nights to go over deliver.”

Are you guys ready for the pro-golfer UEE?
