MBLAQ's Cheondoong Wants To Work With 2NE1'S CL

The figure that MBLAQ's Cheondoong wants to work with is 2NE1's CL.

Even as 2NE1's Sandara Park's younger brother, in their recent interview Hello TV, he selected world star Rain (Jung Jihoon) and 2NE1's CL as the people whom he wanted to work with.

Cheondoong said "It was after seeing Rain's performance that made me decide to become a singer", pointing out Rain as his role model. In addition, he revealed his strong ambitions, "I often hear that I'm nice because I appear to be gentle, but just because people say that I'm nice, there's no reason that I can't be strong", "Rather than giving up on everything like Rain, I'm going to work hard in order to become the best singer, and in order to achieve my dream, strongly".

40 people committed suicide daily in 2009

Nearly 40 people committed suicide daily last year, up from 35 in 2008, according to the National Police Agency Wednesday.

A total of 14,579 people took their own lives in 2009, up 18.8 percent from 12,270 the previous year.

By age group, those aged 60 and above comprised 4,614 or 32 percent of the total suicides ― indicating that more senior citizens are at risk ― followed by people in their 40s at 2,770 or 19 percent.

Though people in their 20s made up only 12 percent at 1,749, this represented a jump of 29 percent from 2008, and 35 percent over the last three years.

Around 28 percent of suicides took their own lives due to psychological problems, followed by 22 percent because of physical illness. Economic, domestic and love issues were next in the top five reasons.

"Statistics show suicides are rising sharply nationwide, though it's hard to pinpoint a single reason for the increase. Society as a whole should make greater efforts to stop people killing themselves," a police officer said.

News of people committing suicide comes out almost every day. On Monday, a man in his 40s and his 6-year-old son were found dead in his room in Goseong, Gangwon Province, in what is seen as an apparent murder/suicide, police said.

They had died from inhaling toxic gas from burnt coal briquettes in a sealed room. The man left a suicide note, saying: "I don't want to live anymore."

On May 12, a total of eight bodies were found in apparent group suicides in Hwaseong, Gyeonggi Province and Chuncheon, Gangwon Province.

Three men were found in an inn with burnt briquettes in a sealed room. The other four women and a man burned briquettes inside a car. Police suspect they plotted their deaths through Web sites encouraging suicide.

Korea has the top suicide rate among members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

As of 2008, 24.3 people out of 100,000 killed themselves, about 10 times the 2.5 out of 100,000 for Greece. Korea was the only country with more than 20 suicides per 100,000 people.

onew's interview for THE MUSICAL's june issue

click for bigger

Six o’clock as the sun slowly began to set; we awaited Onew on a rooftop as we prepared for the photo shoot. Soon after the preparations ended and the staff exchanged words back and forth, Onew appeared. But my, he seemed more like a curt British gentleman than a young boy walking slowly towards us in his jeans and sky-blue jacket (of course he was still as cute as ever). The café’s guests began to bustle around and take pictures of Onew’s unexpected appearance, and we had to hurry to get the job done. But honestly the crowd’s reaction is nothing to be shocked about. He is after all, SHINee’s leader.

Kim HeeChul expresses interests for SoHee once again, “Her overwhelming cuteness”

Kim HeeChul has once again expressed interests for WonderGirls SoHee.

Kim HeeChul was on MBC FM4U ’2pm Date with Park MyungSoo’ when he was asked, “Is there anyone whom you are interested in?”. His answer was, “I don’t like it that when people are asked such a question they answer that they like everyone. I like being honest. I like female singers like 4Minute, Secret and After School – those who have the cutesy image lately. Awhile ago, WonderGirls returned to Korea and I saw SoHee. She is really someone whose cuteness is just overwhelming. Usually I’m someone who is alright with most females, but SoHee is just really cute.”

Already before this, Kim HeeChul had expressed his interests for SoHee on different variety shows like SBS Family Outing and MBC Come To Play.

Netizens’ comments are “SoHeeChul is just compatible. It’s good if they date”, “He really only like her as a fan?”, “It seems that he really likes her. Cute” etc.

LBH's plane does not crash, concert still delayed

Lee Byung-hun apologizes for concert delay

BAMF Lee Byung-Hun landing back in Korea with his intricately woven hat intact. LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!
Collapse )

Hallyu star Lee Byung-hun had to apologize to his Japanese fans for delays and confusion over his concerts due to a seating problem Tuesday in Tokyo.

The two concerts titled "Dramatic Live Stage IRIS," featuring the songs from the television drama IRIS, which were held at the Saitama Super Arena, were both delayed for one hour because of a rearrangement of the seats.

An additional stage was abruptly set up in the zone reserved for standing room only tickets, leaving some 2,800 fans to seek other seats for both the day and night concerts.

The organizer noticed the problem only one hour before the event and prepared alternative seats on the fourth and fifth floors but the fans continued to strongly protest and 15 cops were called to the venue.

The organizer explained that there was a miscommunication between the ticket issuer and the concert operator.

"I am sorry for delaying the concert for a seating problem. Please understand and I will perform more than I prepared," Lee told his fans at the concerts.

The Korean drama series "IRIS" is broadcast through TBS in Japan every Wednesday night after it scored huge popularity in Korea for its dynamic action scenes shot at global location and its star-studded casting such as Kim Tae-hee, Jung Joon-ho, Kim So-yeon and even T.O.P. from boy band Big Bang.

And like a true BAMF he was true to his word.
