a crap load of awesome kim jaedong news! his namesake song, a new show, and charity contributions

the kim jaedong song: okyokyokyo!
written and sung by yoon dohyun, arranged by mc mong

[follow up on previous post]

Popular TV personality Kim Jae-dong has some great friends. Singer Yoon Do-hyun released a song on the 15th through an online music site titled "Kim Jae-dong Song : Oh-kyo-kyo-kyo" which he is dedicating as a gift to Kim. Yoon commented that he started on this song because he found it "amazing that [Kim's] such small eyes could look at and take in this world".

Lyrically, there are some seemingly offensive lines that talk about Kim's "small eyes", "a face as ugly as leftover ramyun pieces", "dreary body", etc. However, Yoon also sings about Kim's "warm heart", how it's "amazing that he can move and shake this world all through the power of one microphone", and that Yoon will forever be there by Kim's side like a trusty older brother.

Rapper/singer MC Mong also took part in this project. Yoon wanted someone who had a more light, comical, and bright touch to do the arrangements for the song. Coincidentally, MC Mong had somehow heard it and decided he wanted to take part in it as well.

What's even more touching is not the birth of this song but what can potentially come from it. Yoon is planning on donating all money made from it to Kim Jae-dong's lifelong dream of building an alternative school. Yoon said that he also hopes the song will encourage people to be more warm-hearted to comfort and embrace each other amidst this dark and dreary world.

SNSD's Taeyeon couldn't handle Gee's cute concept


It has been revealed that Taeyeon had a hard time adjusting to the cute image that came with their hit song Gee.
On KBS Win Win, Taeyeon revealed, “It was hard for me to digest the cute concept as a 19-year-old when promoting Gee, because I thought it didn’t match me. I had thoughts of needing to show fans a different side of me, rather than the cute concept we always had. However, I saw the other members trying hard, and came to reflect on my immature thoughts.

Seungri, "I got $200 a month as part of a shopping mall dance team...."

Part 1 of the 10-part interview series.

“Daesung and Taeyang are trees with thick roots that will grow well if you water them at the right times, and TOP’s a tree that may seem slightly weird at first but still looks great the way it is.
Jiyong’s a little too fancy of a tree but if you straighten it up once in a while, it will grow splendidly.

Seungri has too many useless twigs. There always has to be a gardener standing next to you. If we don’t consistently lop off all your twigs, noone knows where you’ll go next.”

"Tide of Girl Groups is not Crisis, but Opportunity" - Hyori Lee

okay, you'll probably find this to be tl;dr but it's actually super interesting. hyori always has words of wisdom, so try reading it.  esp. if you have no idea who she is. =)

Interviewer: "Do you regard yourself as a star singer?”

Lee Hyo Ri: “Since I can see many vicious comments about me, I might rank among the top in terms of people’s interest.”

Interviewer: "There are opinions that you tried to emulate the style of pop singers such as Lady Gaga and Beyonce.”

Lee Hyo Ri: “I do not want to lag behind the international trend. More important point is that I have to make my own style while following the trend.”

There are no unnecessary words in the conversation with singer Lee Hyo Ri (31). She sometimes straightforwardly opens her heart and she is also very good at pushing and pulling during the talk. She can attract her fans both with her sensual eyes that are full of charisma onstage and her smiling eyes revealing her easygoing personality on reality shows.

IU Will Take Over Taeyeon As New Chin-Chin DJ

Having announced her decision to step down from her radio DJ job of Chin Chin yesterday, MBC Radio has been searching around for an adequate replacement to fill the position vacated by SNSD’s Taeyeon.

But it certainly did not take too long as they named 16 year old singer and high school student, IU as the new Chin Chin DJ. It will be a significant step up for the young girl who already appears on five radio programs weekly.

MBC also said that they are just trying IU out for now and could also revert back to a double-DJ system like before. For now though, it’s just decided that IU will begin hosting by herself from next Monday, April 26th.

Taeyeon’s last radio broadcast will be this Sunday, April 25th and we wish IU lots of luck in her new job!

Yesung and Sungmin Interview

The agility of the two men, as they run from one side of the rehearsal room to the other, is amazing. One second they're carrying swords and doing martial arts, and then before you know it they're holding hands with their female co-stars and singing. As they socialize with the ensemble in a market scene, the director meticulously takes notes on the movement of the actors. He doesn't hear the press agent say "It's a really scary practice". Like students about to take an exam, the two men are showing off everything they have as they run around the practice room. This is the second interview with Yesung and Sungmin, who lack experience but are passionate and vivacious, and are returning in their musical story, Hong Gil Dong.

"Idol singers always get the lead role because they're idols, right? I wanted to break this preconception."

Lately amongst preparations for their 4th album, musical rehearsals, and their Super Junior colleagues' difficulties, their hearts and minds haven't been at peace. This is the most crucial moment for Super Junior since the pop group was formed. However, there is one reason why Yesung and Sungmin are able to completely concentrate on the musical 'Hong Gil Dong,' their second musical.

Lee Jun-ki to enter military after shooting movie and drama

Korean actor Lee Jun-ki will be pushing back his military entrance date to fulfill his current work commitments, according to his agency JG Company on Monday.

According to an official at JG, Lee had received a notice from Korea's Military Manpower Administration to enter the army within the year to fulfill his mandatory two-year service.

"But he asked to defer the entrance date because he is currently working on a movie and television series," the official was quoted as saying. "Entering the military is something that should be and will be done without question, but I think he needs to finish what he has been working on before going [to the military]."

He added that final details regarding the issue will be sorted out sometime early next week.

Lee, 27, became a household name after appearing as a woman-like clown in the 2005 hit film "The King and the Clown" and most recently portrayed a passionate magazine reporter in MBC TV series "Hero".

The Hallyu star started shooting the film "Grand Prix" with top Korean actress Kim Tae-hee earlier this month and is scheduled to appear in SBS TV's 24-episode series "Faith" later in the year.

{CYWORLD} SJ Stylist’s Entry about 4jib MV Shooting

Super junior Music Video!!

At first, as I had to do the makeup for all 11, and also the name of Super Junior did pressure me when I went to film but everyone had a good personality and sense of humour than I had expected. Even though it was hard on me physically, it was still really fun. I took photos with Eunhyuk and Leeteuk hyungs as a fan.
It was just so funny. Everyone was doing their best, so I did my best with the makeup. Everything from the dance and film setting was all really hot!
Even the song is really addictive. I’m a fan now. Hehe.
I’m thankful for making the atmosphere easier to do makeup,
And also thankful for the fact that everyone like it.
