Big Bang’s ‘Lollipop 2′ an “All-Kill” continues to rise on charts



Big Bang released their new song for their cyon phone ‘Lollipop 2′ endorsement, “Lollipop 2″ and it has been killing the online and offline music charts as soon as it was released on February 19th.

Teddy and both G-Dragon and TOP took part in the making of this song, both in composing and writing the lyrics.

This catchy tune has been able to beat out new songs like “Oh!” by SNSD, “Lupin” by Kara and 2AM’s “Even If I die, I Can’t Let You Go”. These songs are currently being promoted by idol groups and it is very fascinating how a song such as “Lollipop 2” with no promotions or plans for promotions, can beat songs that are being promoted by idol groups on famous music programs.

Last year’s Lollipop song by Big Bang featuring 2NE1 dominated the charts as soon as it went out and this year they were able to do it again all on their own with an electric hip-hop beat and a catchy tune that proved to be an all-kill.

Big Bang fans are getting more impatient than ever for Big Bang’s official comeback to Korea and their brand new album and solo promotions of TOP and Daesung as well as Taeyang.

Nancy Lang eats… cat ears?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Pop artist Nancy Lang (yes, the crazy one that walks around with a stuffed cat on her shoulder) proved just how far she’ll go for the love of cats on the latest episode of Sponge.

The most recent episode of KBS 2TV’s Sponge, which aired on February 19th, featured exotic foods from China. Of all the dishes that were presented, the dish that drew the most attention was a stew containing a cat’s ears.

Nancy Lang, who had no idea what the dish was, exclaimed during the tasting, “The stew is warm and delicious. It almost tastes like soojaebi [traditional Korean soup made with flour dough and vegetables].”

When the producers asked her to guess the identity of the dish again, Nancy Lang stated, “I don’t think it’s flour,” as she continued to relish the dish. And finally, when the dish’s identity was revealed, Nancy Lang, of course, had an epileptic seizure of epic proportions!

Other exciting dishes featured on that day also included a watermelon stuffed with a whole chicken.

Do you think the guilt from eating cat’s ears will finally make Nancy Lang remove that cat from her shoulder? Only time will tell.

And for those of you who can’t quite place where you might have seen her, she’s appeared on several episodes of Strong Heart and Golden Bell. She quickly rose to fame when she performed Lost Dream at the 2003 Venice Biennale. In her trademark art series entitled, Taboo Yogini, she put together characters such as a a robot figure wearing a huge wig and toting a gun or a Louis Vuitton bag in a back drop of Chanel lipsticks and other luxury goods.

SHINee in Teen Magazine March Issue (Singapore)



SHINee Spotlight
It's all about SHINee's shining appearance Singapore here.

Dressed in their gothic punk "Ring Ding Dong" outfits, SHINee made their debut appearance to the Singapore media on a sunny Saturday morning, at Esplanade's Theatre Main Foyer.

As journalists from various media platforms shot their questions to the "man" band wannabe - SHINee, and to other prominent Korean figures present (which includes Bobby Kim and Oh Joonsung), SHINee stands out at the shyest bunch. Most of the time, it was Onew and Minho speaking up, while the rest of the members sat there quietly with their heads hung low.

Yum… sweet potatoes are one of my favorite snacks, personally. But for some people, they are also a great way to curb your hunger, and keep you in shape! Unfortunately, for Min Kyung Hoon, they were also a reason he fainted.

On the Feb. 20th episode of KBS ‘Star Golden Bell‘, Min Kyung Hoon revealed that he once weight 90 kg. ( 90 kg = 198 pounds ) He also stated that within a short time frame of about 2 months, lost a lot of weight and is now slim and fit. How did he do it?

By only eating half a sweet potato a day.

Curious, MC Lee Chaeyoung asked if there were any medical issues or problems that came up during this diet.

Min Kyung Hoon explained: ”If you don’t eat you get anemia. So, when I went to the fridge for some water, I fainted. ”

He also added: ”Even though I was knocked out for about 4-5 seconds, it was still pretty scary.“

The boys of Super Junior spent this past weekend performing the latest leg from their Super Show 2 Tour in Taipei, Taiwan. Although I was expecting some Oh! action, it seems we got something a little bit different. The boys performed SNSD / Girls’ Generation Gee and f(x)’s Chu, spreading the SM Entertainment love.

It seems they love performing these songs from their fellow SM groups. Next stop for the boys on the Super Show 2 Tour is Shanghai, China on March 6th and 7th. The boys will then travel to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on March 20th and finish up the tour in Manila, Philippines on April 10th.

Jo Kwon, "All the 2PM members are desperate for girls"



2AM's Jo Kwon revealed that all the 2PM members are desperate for girls.

On the new program on KBS 2TV called "Win Win (Seung Seung Jang Goo)", Jo Kwon was asked "In 2PM, is there a member who wants to get a girlfriend?" and in response he said "All the members in 2PM want a girlfriend."

Taecyeon simply said "I'm really lonely", "I want a girlfriend" but Junho repeated "Why don't I have a girl..." and kept putting himself down.

To keep Junho from being discouraged, Jo Kwon said "I always cheer him on to not worry too much." However, Junho said with a smiling face that he never listens to these words and caused the studio to erupt into laughter.

Meanwhile, Jo Kwon announced "Rather than 2PM being 'beastly' idols, they're 'baby beasts.'" and revealed a new side of 2PM that were hidden from the fans.

The episode will be broadcasted on the 23rd on 승승장구 (Win Win).

2PM’s Junsu was supposed to debut as a member of 2AM?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

As you all remember, 2PM were last week’s guests on KBS 2TV’s talk show, Win Win (Seung Seung Jang Goo), hosted by Kim Seung Woo. On the latest episode of Win Win, which will be broadcasted on the 23rd, 2AM “visited secretly” to make a surprise appearance on the show, during wich they revealed an interesting information about a member of 2PM.

If some of you don’t know, the members of 2PM and 2AM once trained together before their debut, and not as the two separate groups that they are distinguished as today. They were called “One Day” (PM+AM=Day). The boys trained for three years, while a few were eliminated along the way. At the end though, those remaining were divided into what we now know as 2PM and 2AM.

What 2AM revealed on the show was that 2PM’s Junsu was actually grouped with the members of 2AM and practiced 2AM’s debut song This Song for six months. But at the end, there were more changes made within the members and Junsu was eventually grouped with 2PM.

Can you guys imagine Junsu in 2AM? His singing is definitely up-to-par with the rest of the 2AM members, but on the other hand, he plays a significant role as the main vocalist of 2PM in carrying the vocals of the group.

Stay tuned for this episode on this week’s Win Win, airing February 23rd.
