If you go to 1:12 in this video you can learn the dirty truth see a preview for J.P.~Reborn~
It's actually just the Japanese TTL, but the PV looks really nice. I would be mad that it wasn't a new song if the video didn't look good, but it's really slick. Anyway, I don't know if T-ara will be in this version but I'll probably end up finding out right after I post this if my luck continues the way it has been. -.-;

Sorry everyone for all the posts on Supernova all in one night. It's just that all of this really started releasing a couple days ago so I'm backtracking a lot of stuff.

Visitors Entering South Korea to Be Fingerprinted, Photographed Beginning August

Beginning in August, all foreign travelers entering Korea, aged 17 or over will have their fingerprints scanned and faces photographed at international airports and harbors. Diplomats and those traveling on official duty will be exempt.

The Ministry of Justice said Thursday that a set of bills aimed at toughening the immigration process got an endorsement at the National Assembly, Wednesday afternoon.

Unlike other passed bills that usually don't take effect until after six months, the measure will be put into practice within three months in preparation for the G-20 summit in November in Seoul, the ministry said.

"It will more effectively keep suspicious foreigners away from the territory," said Sohn Hong-ki, a senior official of the ministry. "After all, the upcoming summit is expected to be held in a much more secure environment."

'Paradise Meadow' The Birth of Actor Changmin



TVXQ's Magnae, Changmin will soon have his acting debut. The stage that was built for his debut, is [Paradise Meadow]. As the exact date for the show's debut is not being confirmed, the teasers and contents of the show are not released, causing fans to panic whilst waiting. The production team predicts the show to be released within the year. Instead of an appropriate opening, why not keep the 'secretive feel' and anticipate the show to debut. In the drama, Changmin married the female lead, Lee Yeon Hee despite his family's protests, portraying a scene of a romantic prince. Due to this, with the addition of Changmin's prince character, his love story with Lee Yeon Hee is most anticipated.

As all shooting for the drama have stepped into pre production, Changmin, who have completed Kohaku Uta Gassen Music Festival, have already headed to Australia for part of his drama shoot. Currently he is shooting [Paradise Meadow] in Jeju island with Lee Yeon Hee and Joo Sang Woo.

[Paradise Meadow] is written by Jang Hyun Joo,who wrote [Coffee Prince No. 1 Shop], together with Seo Hee Jin, Directed by Kim Chul Kyu, who directed [Hwang Jini]. With Changmin as the lead actor, and the three of them working strongly together, this drama is very anticipated. The production side said " A happy and vibrant story with beautiful music mixed, it is really a drama that is worth anticipated." Romantic scenes with special settings, with the addition of a new concept, [Paradise Meadow], it will definitely worth everyone's expectations.

Although it is not TVXQ's group activities, the 5 of them are still working hard with the fans' care and concern. Following, Yoochun will start his activities as an actor in both Korea and Japan in June. The Korea side have already confirm his casting in [SungKyunKwan Scandal]. Though this is a lonely period of time for fans, we can still see them grow slowly. This is the only thing that we can do.

It was revealed that whenever the boys watched themselves perform or make appearances on television shows, they would be overwhelmed with emotions. It was also revealed that aside from their debut, the group shared that their most memorable moment was when they landed in Japan for their showcase performance concert.

It’s been 100 days so far for these boys and they plan to take themselves to a higher level as the days pass by. They’ve garnered a decent fanbase with their debut song Mazeltov, but gained more love with their comeback song All Day.

China Sohu Interview of Jang Geun Suk


Today, Jang Geun Seok will be hosting a fan meeting at Beijing’s Chao Yang Athletic Centre, but after the press conference he accepted a special exclusive interview with Sohu-Korea Entertainment. From Hwang Jin Yi to Minamishineyo, we have seen Geun Seok’s growth on the silver screens, from a child star who was worried about losing his sense of urgency and would become lazy, so would treat all roles with the same passion and respect.

As the “87th Generation of Leaders”, Geun Seok believes this has given him a feeling of responsibility. He rates his own acting a 7 on a scale of 10, and tries to learn something new from every co-star, even from his junior Park Shin Hye. A grudge bearer, Lee Hong Ki was once on Geun Seok’s black books because he didn’t pay up alcohol expenses. If attracted by a female, it will be because of her eyes, and when our reporter played the “4 character idioms” game with him, he resumed his hilarious character, saying “If the outlook on love is ‘surrounded by enemies’, then it would be bad.”

He said he wanted to “take over the world” at the press conference, and that lead to him mentioning his own goals. He repeated, “I want the whole world to know who I am, the Korean actor Jang Geun Seok.”

Variety programs cancellation leave fans frustrated

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It’s been nearly a month since the tragic naval ship incident but the variety programs are still on hold. Major broadcasting stations KBS, SBS and MBC announced yet another week of their fan favorite shows will not be aired as scheduled.

Although some programs have slowly been coming back but there are still many shows on lock down and it’s got fans saying, “All I ask that this is all resolved just a day quicker” and “When will I ever be able to see a new episode of 1N2D?”

KBS won’t bring back shows like 1N2D and Gag Concert, SBS still have Inkigayo and I Like Sunday offline and MBC’s Haddangsa is being replaced with a news show for the time being.

It’s understandable that shows went off the air out of respect for the tragedy, but fans are becoming more and more disgruntled with limited entertainment. How long before fans begin lighting torches and storming down doors with pitchforks and cabbages in the air? Yes, cabbages.

updates on Lee Hyori faces multiple plagiarism accusations



1
Zack Taylor from Toronto's radio station Kiss 92.5 said Cookie Couture hired a lawyer to go after Hyori. According to Taylor, he tried to contact Hyori on Twitter and she blocked him. There is no verification if Hyori even has an official Twitter account.

Cooke Couture owns the entire song "Boy, Bring it Back."

Although it is unclear as to who Cookie Couture will be suing, it looks as though Hyori could be facing a major blow to her career.

2
Lee JaeYoung also known as Bahnus is the leader of the group Bahnus Vacuum. He apparently he gave 180 songs to Hyori to pick from. In the past, he has worked with British artists. It appears that Maxwell, Whitney Houston, Beyonce and other artists have asked to work with him.

Bahnus Vacuum is made up of 7 composers and he is the leader. One of the composers of Bahnus Vacuum had connections with an employee of M.Net, thus allowing Bahnus to give Hyori the demos.

He did not expect Hyori to chose "Swing," "Feel the Same" and "How Did We Get" out of the 180 songs he offered.

Of the six accusations, "How Did We Get" is credited for being used.

For Melanie Durrant's song, "Feel the Same" it is produced by DNA.

A representative of Lil Precious' management team said she had no idea her song had been stolen. Lil Precious wrote the song, "So Insane" herself.

Another possible representative of Lil Precious posted a comment on YouTube saying, "I can assure everyone we never sold the right to any of Lil Precious' song to anyone. We will be taking the appropriate steps to make this right."

Cookie Couture's song "Boy, Bring it Back" is produced by Chuck & Joe. The girls posted a blog on Myspace and addressed fans about this issue.

"Just wanted to let you know that the song 'bring it back' belongs to and is written by the members of Cookie Couture. It has been brought to our attention that korean artist "Lee Hyori" has stolen our material and is passing it off as her own.

Our lawyers are hard at work with this.

All of our songs were written, arranged and owned by us!

If you don't see Cookie Couture's name on it... then it's not official and chances are we have a thief on our hands."

Meanwhile, the girls talked about their recently Asia tour which started last 17th.

Some WG news...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Korean Group, Wonder Girls, took off from Taiwan with lots of gift from fans and 20 boxes of pineapple cakes from Taiwan, but the topic about Xiao S’s question still goes on. Korean media states that her question was too rash, some fans even say that she’s sexually harassing them. There was more than 30 related news posted on Korean news .

With 2 members at only 18 years old, asking a sexually question is too much. Wonder Girls arrived at Taiwan, to record for a variety show, Kang Xi Lai Le, hosted by Xiao S and Cai Kang Yong. Xiao S asked a question about their first experience with sex. Korea Media, on hearing the news, stats that the members of Wonder Girls, Sohee and Hyerim, are just turning 18 this year, asking them about the first time is just too much.

Many Korean fans are curious about Xu XiDi’s history, and Xu XiDi (Xiao S), becomes the second most searched online. Most articles referred Xiao S as the sister of the female lead in the Taiwan version of “Meteor Garden” (Liu Xing Hua Yuan) or as Koo Jun-Yeop’s ex-girlfriend’s sister to describe her.

Xiao S states that it’s just for the effect of the show.

Wonder Girls, after ending the fan-meeting, went to “Din Tai Fung” to eat soup dumpling (Xiao Long Pau) while YeEun and Hyerim, who are currently in a diet, returned to their hotel to eat their diet meals.

Wilber Pan’s manager, who knows Wonder Girls, brought him along to the celebration dinner. Pan Weibo wanted to bring them to the night market, but because of the rain, they decided not to. They flew to Shanghai yesterday, revealing that they will go to Taiwan again.

Xiao S, through her manager, Joan states that asking the question was purely the show’s plot. As a female, she definitely wouldn’t allow another female artist to answer a similar question. Each time she ask such a question, Tsai Kang-yung will stop her, it was meant for the effects of the show. “Kangxi” will not allow artists to answer uncomfortable questions.

Gummy’s mom to release an album

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Usually a daughter follows in their mom’s footsteps but this time, it’s the other way around. Gummy’s mother Jang Sook Jung is going to release her first album on the 29th.

This is a rather cute gesture because Gummy herself is in the midst of her own comeback at the moment. I guess they’ll see each other both on stage and at home.

Gummy proved her loyalty to her mother by helping produce her mother’s album. The title track Women Too…, a song that sends a toast to all women, is one of the ten total tracks in the album.

The two are even sharing the same haircut! Like mother, like daughter…
