Lyrics for MBLAQ’s Y are in trouble!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


MBLAQ’s comeback seemed to be on a good start with their music video for Y released just a few days ago and the track slowly rising in various charts. However, MBLAQ already received warnings from MBC, KBS and SBS due to the shooting scene in the music video, which they had to ultimately remove.

Now MBLAQ is facing more problems, this time, because of the lyrics.

MBC announced that the lyrics for Y were unsuitable for broadcast. The specific lyrics that were problematic were, “널 씹어서 뱉어준다” which roughly translates into “I’ll chew you up and spit you out”.

A representative of J.Tune Entertainment said, “We will alter the problematic section and request a re-evaluation from the specific broadcasting company”

Meanwhile, KBS did not find any problems with the lyrics of Y, and MBLAQ is awaiting the official review of SBS.

It seems like a rough start for MBLAQ, but hopefully they will overcome these conflicts and make a grand comeback! Stay tuned on allkpop for their comeback stage on Mnet M!Countdown tonight!

Song Joong-ki in Elle magazine



This is the time of the month when the fashion mags release their teaser photos for the next month’s issues, which is why we’ve got a couple of them released at the same time. This one features Song Joong-ki, whose “pretty boy” concept goes literal (the term for pretty boy is directly translated “flower boy”) in the Elle fashion spread for the magazine’s June issue.

He’s known for his personable image and pretty features, and joked that upon seeing the photo concept, “You could call me ‘unni-like.’” In the accompanying interview, Song showed a hint of some of his acting ambition, saying, “When I choose a project, rather than just thinking of a role I could handle, I’m drawn more to characters that make me wonder if I can pull them off well.”

After wrapping up his drama OB-GYN, Song put out a men’s health and beauty book, Beautiful Skin Project, which topped the bestseller list within a month of publication. Next, he will prepare for the upcoming drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal, which stars Micky Yoochun and is rumored to be considered casting Seo Hyo-rim as his love interest (which I would LOVE, because I find her a vivacious and endearing actress). The “youth sageuk” features four young men in the Joseon era and is already incurring “F4″ comparisons. Sungkyunkwan Scandal is scheduled for a September premiere on KBS.

Meanwhile, Song Joong-ki also has a movie coming out, Heart Is 2 (posters below), and recently participated in an animal rights campaign. The movie will release later this summer.

[Star diary, Part 2] "On my 12th birthday, my present for myself is…"


Taeyang (23,·real name Dong Young Bae) has liked music ever since he was little. But, being raised at a relative’s home, he was sent to an acting academy. "It was probably because acting academies were booming in those days. My cousins were also going to acting academies, so I went together with them. But that wasn’t what I wanted"

Although he never cared for the acting academy, it was because of this he got the opportunity to become a singer. It was during his time at the acting academy, he was able to appear in Jinusean’s music video as ‘little Sean’.

SM, the company which manages DBSK, has been informed about its withdrawal regarding its trademark application for the name "Dong Bang Shin Ki".

SM, who had applied for the trademark application for "DBSK" to the Patent Office in August last year, later withdrew their application towards the end of the year.

A SM spokesperson cleared the issue with Newsen on the 19th over the phone, stating that "it is a fact that we withdrew the trademark application for the name "DBSK" late last year" and "[we hereby also] announce that the enhanced document is also withdrawn.".

While the trademark application is currently cancelled, one cannot rule out the possibility that SM might once again apply for the enhancement of the trademark name of "DBSK".

More info on "North Korean torpedo' sank South's navy ship" report


Lettering on the torpedo that is said to prove its North Korean origin

A North Korean submarine's torpedo sank a South Korean navy ship on 26 March causing the deaths of 46 sailors, an international report has found.

Investigators said they had discovered part of the torpedo on the sea floor and it carried lettering that matched a North Korean design.

Pyongyang rejected the claim as a "fabrication" and threatened war if sanctions were imposed, say reports.

China has urged both countries to show restraint.

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak pledged to take "stern action" against the North.

The White House described the sinking of the ship as an "act of aggression" by North Korea that challenged peace.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said the report was "deeply troubling".

Pyongyang said it would send its own inspection team to the South to "verify material evidence" behind the accusation.

Hyun Bin displays a different, fierce image in his new spread for the June issue of Marie Claire magazine.

In the accompanying interview, Hyun Bin talked about his most recent acting project, Late Autumn, which was filmed wholly on location in Seattle with co-star Tang Wei. He said, “I felt some pressure at being in a project that has been remade several times, but in order to express a new side to the character, I went into filming without watching the previous versions.”

Regarding Tang Wei, he said, “Working with her was so enjoyable. When the film was in the early casting stages, I received a lot of attention for working with Tang Wei, but I hope audiences can just watch the movie comfortably.”

Hyun Bin also has fan events planned, and explained, “I received two songs, which I then recorded. I’ll present them at this upcoming fanmeeting. Although I won’t be making a formal singer’s debut, I am planning to release a single album in Japan shortly.”

Especially in the mixing of songs, it was done by US Pop star Ne-yo and Rihanna's mix engineer producer Kevin KD Davis who's been accoladed with several Grammy awards, as well as another producer Ken Lewis who's had achieved more than 50 golden discs, thus increasing by another notch of this world acknowledged audio album.

’s boyish face is nowhere to be seen in his first movie, Into the Fire. The rapper that fans are used to seeing, rapping freely with a mischievous grin on his lips is now making his way up the hill of acting with his first movie debut.
 
Heavy smoke rises among the green forest, the banging of drums can be heard. In this lost world disguised with green solitude a crack is heard and the distorted peace is broken. Thump, dum, thump is the only way to describe the sound by Oskar, a character in the novel by Gunter Grass. ‘A conversation between a moth and a light bulb’ is the only weapon a weakling has to defy against the cruel world.

Ariel Lin with Donghae and Siwon again!

Ariel Lin has been waiting to film “Beautiful Challenge” for about 1 year plus, the male lead has changed from Jerry Yan, to Wu Chun and now it is rumoured that the new male lead will be Super Junior’s Donghae and Siwon. Also, Ariel Lin will be filming the Taiwanese Version of “Coffee Prince” and will be pairing up with Jerry Yan again.

“Beautiful Challenge” male lead has been changing from the initial Jerry Yan, to Wu Chun. After Wu Chun decided to work on movies instead of drama, the male lead has changed back to Jerry Yan. But the second lead is unpleased with his little acting role and decided to quit. Hence, our female lead Ariel Lin has been waiting for her male lead for a year plus already. Now it is finally revealed that Ariel Lin will work with Donghae and Siwon from Super Junior. Earlier on, Ariel Lin has filmed a MV with the both of them and has know them quite well, plus Arial Lin graduated from a Korean Language degree and hence there shouldn’t be any communication problems.
