Singer Rain, The reason he called Lee Joon 'Honey'?


MBLAQ's Lee Joon has released that Singer Rain has called him honey before.

The group that Rain has raised MBLAQ's Lee Joon confessed that he was bewildered when Rain called him honey on KBS 2TV 'Happy Together' on a recent shooting.

Lee Joon made all the people laugh by answering to MC Park Myungsoo's question of "Have you ever seen an unexpected side of Rain before?" by saying "During a photo shoot he was cooly swimming when all of a sudden he flipped his [hair] and talked in a cutesy voice saying 'honey honey honey~'"

Rain went right away into explaining after being bewildered and Lee Joon's saying of "I don't know why Rain called me honey"

I think Rain should just tape Joon's mouth shut. XD LOLing forever at "cutesy Rain".

Rain said "Please don't think that me calling Joon 'honey' has a weird meaning behind it. I was just telling him 'Don't people who date each other give each other nicknames? I often call me girlfriend 'honey'', and was just joking with Joon. (original link)

That's an interesting joke, Papa Rain. ;D

2PM Address "Lip Synching Controversy"

Aww, here we go.

"KPOP boy band 2PM has faced a hailstorm of blog posts after being caught lip-syncing on the national Korean television program 'Music Bank.'

While performing their song 'Without U,' principal 2PM member Wooyoung was visibly faking his lines, to the chagrin of, well, not that many. Tweets and message board comments have largely been supportive of the singer, who is currently suffering from debilitating vocal cord nodule problems.

"get well soon mando cheeks!! i love his dimples btw.."-- 12:28pm
"forget that, he is looking HOT in this pic! LOL. glad his hair is back like this" --11:48am
"aweeeee lipsync" --11:42AM
"Poor Wooyoung. Hope he is given more rest and Junsu too. TC boys! 2PM hwaiting!"--11:32AM

A JYPE representative stated that 'since making a comeback with 2PM, Wooyoung's condition hasn't been at its best. Doctors have recommended that Wooyoung should not strain his vocals during this period and thus we decided to use the AR version for his part during the performance as a precaution.' "

You know, combined with anti-2PM fans planning to boycott the Wonder Girls' upcoming tour, I am really beginning to feel for these boys. They are famous and loved and then they're not. It's like they can't do anything right. How much time has to pass for people to move on?

Today's FFA is brought to you by Wooyoung's vocal nodules. Here is a uber helpful youtube vid that should shed some light on the subject.

DISCLAIMER: this vid is a little creepypasta and yes the vocal cords totally look like a vagina or the Eye of Sauron (good luck unseeing that) but it's the human body and seriously, we've all seen worse things on House, or in a zombie movie.

BoA – 2 TVXQ Members “We will work hard for activities to produce a good 3D content” + Video

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Singer BoA together with 2 members of TVXQ U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin finally appeared in front of Korean public after a long time.

The three on May 14th at 11:00 am attended SM Entertainment and Samsung Electronics’ collaboration press conference in regards to expansion of 3D-related content, meanwhile the producer of the agency, Lee Soo Man attended along with them.

At the event day, SM and Samsung through the press conference described thoroughly the business direction they’re going to conduct with the director of 3D movie ‘Avatar’, James Cameron.

After opening remarks by BoA on stage, producer Lee Soo Man said, “It’s nice to meet all of you in this place, and that we’re able to attend this event together. I have a high expectation for an upcoming movie that will be produced for SMTOWN.”

TVXQ U-Know Yunho also said, “It’s a good opportunity to have a 3D production, frankly 3D content is new to the culture, so I’ll work hard for that. We ask many love and support in the future as well.” Changmin added, “It’s an honor to me to be able to attend at this place for 3D Content Leadership Collaboration. Indeed it’s a good project, thus I will try to give my best in creating a good content.”

The main issue of this collaboration with Director James Cameron of Avatar is to produce music and concert videos of SM Entertainment artists in 3D and Samsung will take the advantage for the 3D content in marketing their 3D TV.

Samsung Electronics with production team of Avatar from Director James Cameron has already held a Full HD 3D LED TV Global Launch event at New York Time Square in last March, and at the event, the 3D video of Black Eyed Peas live live performance was captured, ever since the 3D TV has been actively marketed.

Supernova's B-side tracks; Oricon Chart Positions

Magokoro's B-side 逢いたいと言えたら・・・

I cannot even express how pretty Magokoro's B-side is. Sosososo pretty... キミの Birthday is kind of fluffy and poppy, but the rap parts save it from being totally generic. Rock Up is a really nice fun song. Still no J.P. ~Reborn~ PV. : |

And they're charting nicely! I don't think they're selling all that much, but they're doing better than I thought they would with 3 singles releasing at the same time!

Super Junior’s Lee Teuk opens up about Shindong’s thank you note proposal to his girlfriend.

Lee Teuk met with the press on the 14th at KBS2TV ‘Music Bank’ waiting room and revealed “We jokingly told him to get married within the year”

Shindong is dating a girl from outside the entertainment industry. This was revealed when fans cracked the code in his ‘thanks to’ note in
Super Junior’s 4th album. The code written in his ‘thanks to’ is translated as “Nari-ya, let’s get married. I’m proposing to you. I’ll love you forever”. In addition, Shindong’s agency, SM Entertainment has officially acknowledged the fact that he has a girlfriend.

Lee Teuk said “Our members have met up with his girlfriend too. She’s a good friend of ours. Yesterday, when Heechul saw the post by the fans (regarding Shindong’s code), he contacted Shindong and Shindong sent a mass text to all the members saying ‘Sorry’”

He added “No wonder Shindong was grumbling in front of the computer when we were all writing our ‘thanks to’ notes. Shindong repeated his apology again because it’s been a long time since we released an album but he ends up hogging all the attention, but we said its okay”

Super Junior made their comeback through ‘Music Bank’ today with their title track off their 4th album ‘Miinah’ and drew attention with their powerful skate dance.

YG's gonna be a daddy! :D

Looks like Yang Hyun Suk’s going to be adding another title to his name: it’s been revealed that the CEO and founder of YG Entertainment is going to be a baby daddy in just a few months!

Today, it was revealed through a phone interview that Yang’s longtime girlfriend Lee Eun Joo was pregnant. Back in March, YG revealed his nine-year relationship with the Swi.T idol and hinted at marriage plans for the near future.

“My exact birthday is in December ‘69, Year of the Chicken, [and] now [I'm] 40. I didn’t think I would ever marry,” Yang said today. “Now I am slowly quitting the solo life. If I get married later, I don’t plan to make it open to the public. If I do get married, it will be quiet.”

Although the news is coming as a surprise for many, nine years definitely shows dedication. Whether a wedding is publicly announced or not, I guess this means there will be wedding bells ringing soon… Congrats to Mr Yang and his future family, we wish them the best!

2PM Wooyoung, diagnosed with vocal nodules...a health "warning" following Junsu

The health of group 2PM members is worsening. Following Junsu, who recently injured his knee, Wooyoung was diagnosed with vocal nodules at a hospital.

According to what a JYPE representative said on the 14th, Wooyoung had to go to the hospital recently because his throat was in bad condition since their comeback from practicing an unreasonable amount. Wooyoung, who was diagnosed with vocal nodules, was advised by the doctor to not use his throat for a while; thus, it is inevitable that he stays away from singing live on music programs. On the KBS 2TV "Music Bank," which aired today, Wooyoung had no other choice but to stand on stage with AR(a track with both the instrumentals and vocals recorded) again.

However, since he has no other problems other than his throat, Wooyoung will be continuing his schedule as planned. Currently, Wooyoung is active as an MC for KBS 2TV "Kim Seung Woo's SSJG" and SBS "Inkigayo."

Also, 2PM enjoyed their 1st place win on "Music Bank" K-Chart for the second week in a row with their new song "Without U."
