Jaebeom's mother speaks up



A fan site that is currently protesting against leader Jaebeom’s departure from beast idol group 2PM, Underground, stated on March 1st, “We will do good things for Jaebeom while being his ‘right and left wings.’”

The site wrote,

“On February 25th when JYPE irresponsibly and unfairly declared Jaebeom’s permanent absence as a member of 2PM we said we would go against the company. By any means possible we wanted to return Jaebeom his repuatation that had become tarnished. However, for 6 months Jaebeom and his family members went through a hard time handling various hurtful rumors that had spread around. They no longer want Jaebeom to become an issue now, and are hoping that time will heal.”

In response to how Jaebeom’s family members felt, Underground has decided to respect their wishes. Fansite members feel frustrated and unfair towards the situation but believe that supporting what Jaebeom and his family wants is a part of a fan’s last act of love towards the ex-idol.

In addition, Jaebeom’s mother also spoke up about the issue and addressed fans,

“I want to send my thanks to all the fans. Please continue to keep an interest and watch Jaebeom once in a while. Despite all kinds of rumors that could more than cause a person to despair, our Jaebeom has shown us his normal self and allowed us to not despair but have hope. I thank all the fans again and pray that their hurt feelings caused from this issue will heal quickly. They have done so much.”

Meanwhile, the rest of the six 2PM members Taecyeon, Junsu, Junho, Nikhun, Wooyoung and Chansung held an official meeting with fans on February 27th regarding Jaebeom’s permanent leave from 2PM. The fans where only able to exchange their thoughts on the issue but not have much impact on any of the decisions, which caused many to become angry and hold a protest in front of the JYPE office located at Seoul Chung Dam Dong.After news of 2PM’s Jaebeom’s permanent departure shook the kpop world, it seems like the young man’s close family members have something to say as well.


Everyone has moved on. The cray crays need to do the same and allow all seven boys to be happy.

Wonder Girls Sunmi goes on vacation and reveals future plans



Last month, Wonder Girls member Sunmi put her musical career on hold to further her studies. Since then, much has happened within the group as they welcomed new member Lim.

Although there has been much controversy surrounding JYP Entertainment as of late, it’s been revealed that Sunmi is taking a break and enjoying her free time.

Sunmi made her final performance at Pop-Con on February 20th and it was revealed today that shortly after this performance, Sunmi had left to go on a vacation before she starts on school life.

Today, an official said, “Sunmi went on vacation on the 25th. She is currently with her family and will soon be continuing her studies.”

But is there chance for a future comeback? Apparently so, as a representative revealed, “Sunmi revealed that after spending a year in the States, she would like to slowly ease back into her personal life. If she completes her studies or ever decides to resume her career as an idol, we will support her.”

So although she may be out of the K-pop scene for now, it seems there’s an option for Sunmi to come back. Whether she will reunite with the Wonder Girls or pursue her own solo career is still unknown.

Sungmin questions his position in Super Junior



Super Junior member, Sungmin will be appearing in an upcoming episode of SBS’s Strong Heart (Kang Shim Jang) where he spoked about his frustration and wishes.

On the episode scheduled for broadcast on March 2nd, Sungmin revealed,

“I am the middle of Super Junior.”


What did he mean by that? He explained,

“I feel that in singing, acting, looks, height, etc, everything about me is in the mid-range level (average). Nothing particular stands out about me.”


Sungmin confessed,

“Perhaps because of that (being average), there isn’t much news about me. I really hope that there can be more news written about me.”

Sungmin was probably talking how he was getting overshadowed by the more illustrious members, leading to less opportunities to shine. Other guests sympathized with his situation and offered him ideas to survive in this unforgiving industry, and some of which was so ridiculous that it led to laughters all around the studio.

Japanese Site Hacked over Yu-na Attacks

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
An army of Korean netizens apparently attacked the Japanese Internet forum 2ch for their anti-Korean postings, including those targeting Korea's Olympic gold-medal-winning figure skater Kim Yu-na, causing the site to shut down on Monday.

The attacks began at 1 p.m. on Monday, Korea's Independence Day, which marked Korea's movement against Japanese colonial rule 91 years ago.

Login attempts were unsuccessful in the afternoon.

About 30 out of 33 posting boards were paralyzed by 1:30 p.m.

Online security officials estimated that more than 10,000 Korean netizens participated in hacking into the site.

The attacks were triggered by comments praising Russians for the killing of a Korean student in Moscow.

Some postings claimed that the killing was not racially motivated and Russians were doing "good deeds" after the event occurred.

2ch saw postings claiming that Kim Yu-na won the gold medal in the Vancouver Olympics thanks to judges bribed by Korea. Such anti-Yu-na comments increased when Japan's Mao Asada lost to Kim and had to settle for a silver medal.

Daesung, “I sang every night with my face smothered in a pillow.”

Part 1 of the interview series. There are ten parts in total.



When the group Big Bang first appeared to the world, people whispered that they were ‘ugly’ idols.
Daesung (22, Real name: Kang Daesung) in particular, who is famous for his (small) ‘smiling eyes’, flaunts such humble looks that he was once told by Kim Jong Kook on the SBS variety show ‘Family Outing’ that “If you were around in my time, you would never have been able to become an idol”.
