T-ara will be doing a complete 180 degree transformation, dropping their cute little kitten paws and turning into mature, evil and seductive little devils.

T-ara’s Jiyeon injures her knee

On the 18th and the 19th (KST), girl group T-ara was filming the music video for their upcoming repackaged album’s title track I go crazy because of you and in the process, member Jiyeon injured her knee.

During the filming, Jiyeon fell on the cement floor after getting caught up with the member in front of her. She seemed fine but couldn’t move and was taken to the hospital afterwords for an x-ray.

Jiyeon wasn’t injured too badly but the hospital said that she’ll need at least 3~4 days of full rest. But because of her obligations to her drama God of Study, she received an anesthetic and quickly wrapped up the music video shoot and proceeded to the drama’s film set.

Meanwhile, the group finished filming the music video without Jiyeon on the 19th at 10PM. The repackaged album is set to release on the 26th and hopefully Jiyeon will recover in time.


Poor Jiyon! She won't get to film her parts until tomorrow!

Lee Jun-ki signs with a new agency

Hallyu star Lee Jun-ki has signed with JG Company INC., a newly-established independent talenthouse which will solely manage Lee's career.

"His contract with Mentor Entertainment ended late January and has now decided to join our company," stated a representative from JG on Friday.

JG will follow Hollywood's one-man management system where an agency focuses its efforts on a single celebrity -- from tending to his schedule to his promotional work to his legal issues.

Lee, 27, has been one of the most popular stars in the Asian region since starring in the 2005 hit film "The King and the Clown."

He has also appeared in several dramas including "Iljimae" and the recent MBC TV series "Hero" where he played the role of a passionate magazine reporter. He won the People's Choice Popularity award at MBC's acting awards last year.

Well, I hope this goes smoothly for him and we don't have to read on next week how his old agency sues him over contract violation or something.

Super Junior fans burst of conflict in Taiwan

Korea's popular idol group, Super Junior's charm actually led to having nearing 1500 fans crowding at 2 of the terminals at Taoyuan Airport, making the airport the liveliest and craziest location in Taiwan out of the 9 days of the Lunar New Year holiday.
Because of the concert at Taipei arena on the weekends, Super Junior arrived in Taiwan on the afternoon of the19th in 2 different flights. Due to the fact that the flights arrive at Terminal 2 and Terminal 1 consecutively, the organizers hired over 50 guards and self-supporting students* to guard. Some of the fans stayed over at the airport the night before to book their spaces to see their beloved idols, causing the halls of both terminals to be flooded with fans.

Although it was separated into 2 groups and 2 different flights, the blockade that was originally in place became useless once the fans sees Super Junior. Besides the intense pushing and attracting the other tourists' criticisms, they even banged hard on the glass and climbed to high places. The whole situation was nearing impossible to control. Despite so, the airport police still tells the fans to move back with a tone of displeasure.

In this trip, SJM's Zhoumi and Henry followed along and because of his schedule, Siwon will only arrive just before the concert. Both groups of members headed towards Sherwood Hotel after leaving the airport to prepare for rehearsals at the Taipei arena in the night.

Epik High to Return Next Month with a New Album

Video source: mapthesoul

Hip-hop group Epik High is releasing a new album next month ― this time as a duo.

The return to the music scene comes four months after the group quit promotional activities for its sixth album, "[e]," following the conscription of its member DJ Tukutz in October.

The group, composed of Tablo, Mithra Jin and DJ Tukutz, will resume its activities as a two-member group without Tukutz, its agency said. Tukutz got married on Oct. 13, and entered military service on Oct. 15.

The new album "Epilogue" comes out seven months after the group released their last album in September.

On the group's Web site, Tablo posted a note saying: "The recording of 'Epilogue' album is finished. Mixing will start soon and jacket design work is underway."

Agency officials said about 90 percent of work on the album has been completed.

The trio burst onto the Korean music scene six years ago with the album "Map of the Human Soul" and rose to stardom with consecutive hit songs, armed with catchy hip-hop tunes and socially relevant lyrics with a positive message.

Kangta discharged from military, thanks SNSD

Kangta is a former member of H.O.T., which was one of the most popular idol groups of all time. Back in April of 2008 he entered the military, which is mandatory for all Korean males. After serving for nearly two years, he’s finally being discharged. After being formally discharged from the military he thanked SNSD / Girls’ Generation.
On the 19th, Kangta met with reporters and had a nice relaxed interview in which he talked about his life in the army. Of course, after two years of service in the military, having the paparazzi in your face again would be somewhat of an annoyance, but Kangta rolled with the punches and responded very kindly to the reporters.

2NE1 gets praised during broadcast of the Olympics

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If you’re following the Vancouver Olympics 2010 (something you should be doing), you may have noticed that South Korea’s Mo Tae Bum recently won a gold & silver, respectively, in 500m & 1000m speed skating. And thanks to him, 2NE1 got a slice of attention at the Olympics. No, Mo Tae Bum didn’t give a particular shout-out to this iconic quartet, but the Korean announcer for the live broadcast of SBS Speed Skating did – quite literally.
