It is not a impersonation or fraud, and we confirm it is actually his but there has been no decision as to whether he will use it officially.

There have been many personal phone calls about the Twitter matter but please refrain from doing so as it is disturbing our work.

Thank you

G-Dragon’s “Live Concert Album” goes to #1 instantly on Album Charts



G-Dragon earlier released his “Shine A Light: Live Concert Album” which consisted of new remixes and a new song featuring American hip-hop artist “Flo-Rida“.

Although the album consists of no actual new songs seeing as most of them are just remixes or the ‘live concert’ versions of them, it was still able to grab the #1 spot as soon as it was released with a total of 16 songs and a Bonus CD, both on Daily Album Charts and Real-time Album Charts.

This album beat out albums from other artists that actually contained new songs such as After Shool’s ‘Bang’ and Epik High’s ‘Epilogue’. Proving once again his impact on the k-pop scene and it’s sales. What is even better is that the profits of the selling of this album will all go to charity, and if it’s at number 1 then it must mean that it is selling lots of copies that will further help the poor and the ones in need.

While other rookie girl groups have moved on with new songs, Secret has not done much musical-wise. Fans have been waiting patiently for their comeback and their wait is finally over with the release of their new sexy dance track, Magic, a radical transformation from their debut image.

Secret will really have to step up because they are coming back in the same week as Rain and Lee Hyori but they must be feeling they have what it takes.

Rain's album release postponed to April 7


The release date for Asian pop sensation Rain's new album, originally due out tomorrow, has been delayed to April 7, according to the singer's agency on Wednesday.

"He was supposed to start promoting his album by giving his comeback performances on music shows this week but they have been cancelled so we put off the release date to next week", an official at J.Tune Entertainment told Asia Economic Daily over the phone.

All three of Korea's public networks have cancelled or delayed the airing of most of their entertainment shows this week following the sinking of South Korea's naval ship Cheonan late on March 26.

The country has been in a state of grievance after a mysterious explosion tore apart the vessel, leaving 46 sailors missing or thought to be trapped inside the warship now sitting 40 meters under water. Fifty-eight crew members, including the captain, have been rescued so far.

Meanwhile, "Love Song", the title track to Rain's special album "BACK TO BASICS" unveiled yesterday, is currently topping the music charts of several online music providers and major social networking websites.

The song, released yesterday, is about a man's unforgotten love for his woman even though they are separated.

"BASIC" marks Rain's comeback to the Korean pop music scene in two years after releasing his last studio album "Rainism" in 2008.

Stars promote Think Green campaign



For the month of April, LG Fashion’s brand HAZZYS will be actively promoting its “Think Green” environmental campaign. They have brought on a group of stars to help push its eco-friendly message and organic T-shirts with a photo shoot. The sales of the HAZZYS 100% organic cotton T-shirts will be donated to an environmental organization.

The brand ambassadors are actors Kim Bum, Lee Soo-kyung, Kim Hyo-jin, Min Hyo-rin, Kim Ji-suk, and Ki Tae-young, and on a purely superficial note, the shoot is very simple but looks lovely.
 

The prints for the T-shirts are the result of a collaboration with painter Lee Chul-soo. Customers who buy a certain amount over the duration of the campaign will be given a gift and will be invited to a special event for patrons.

U-KISS ekes P1M in 3-day RP tour

Don’t underestimate the power of fans.

Korean all-male pop group U-Kiss had their local fans to thank for when it earned more than P1 million in sales during a recent tour.

Local support for the group was palpable during the first leg of the tour held at SM Megamall on March 26, where over 5,000 fans showed up.

The fans, who call themselves "Pinoy Kiss Me’s," screamed and cheered when U-Kiss performed “Man Man Ha Ni" and their current single "Bingeul Bingeul."

Fans were at the venue as early as 7:30 a.m., lining up to get a copy of U-Kiss’ “Only One” CD, which came with an exclusive U-Kiss Philippine promo tour poster.

U-Kiss sold more than 1,000 copies of the CD that day.

According to SM Mall personnel, U-Kiss' first day CD sales broke the peak sales record of another K-pop act that performed at SM North Edsa Annex recently.

To show their appreciation to fans, group management scheduled another fan signing even at SM Megamall on March 28, which again allowed for a good number of sales.

Meanwhile, a larger mob greeted the group during the second leg of the tour held at the SM North Edsa Annex, with fans already outside the mall as early as 5 a.m. A big come-on was the promise of being included in a signing event after the performance.

By 2 p.m., U-Kiss officially broke their own record by selling more than 1,300 CDs.

On a related note, Kiss Me Pinay, the U-Kiss Philippines fan group, said their membership tripled after the promo tour.

On the MYX Chart, “Bingeul Bingeul” has already entered the "International Top 20" and the "Hit Chart."

The song is one of only three K-pop music videos that entered the chart alongside Super Junior's "Sorry Sorry-Answer" and Girls' Generation's "Oh!" in Tuesday's (March 30) MYX Daily Top 10.

The U-Kiss Philippine Promo Tour was organized by Premiere Entertainment Philippines Inc. (PEP), who recently revealed plans to bring the boys back in May this year for a bigger show.

"Only One" will be released in selected record stores nationwide on March 31.

New SBS TV series "Prosecutor Princess" is stirring Japan prior to its showing on Korea's small screen, according to a press release by the show's broadcaster on Wednesday.

BoA gets “pecked” by a middle-aged fan

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

How far will you go to show your love for a celebrity?
The latest video clip to circulate the fan pages of BoA, who is currently promoting her latest album in Japan.
The video shows her getting a peck on the cheek by a middle-aged female fan during a fan-signing event. From the video clip, it is not where or when the “attack” took place.

The woman who surprise-kissed BoA on the cheek appears to be a woman of Asian descent in her 40s. In the clip, the woman can be seen approaching BoA to ask her for an autograph, and while BoA is in the midst of signing the autograph, she reached over to give her a peck on the right cheek.

As BoA was caught off guard, you can clearly see the discomfort in her eyes after being kissed. Although the security guards stepped in later to escort the fan out, they were unable to prevent the fan from kissing BoA, as I’m sure they were just as taken aback by her actions.
After viewing the clip, comments from BoA’s fans have ranged from, “If that was a man kissing BoA on the cheek, it would have been considered sexual harassment,” to “the middle-aged woman acted inappropriately for her age,” and “she may feel daughterly towards BoA but that was not an appropriate way to act.”

What do you make of this incident? Did she go too far?
