Supernova at the Pan-Pacific Festival in Honolulu, Hawaii



I was on vacation in Honolulu this past week and during the Pan-Pacific Festival on Friday night, I was walking down Kalakaua Avenue, and stumbled upon the Supernova boys performing on one of the street stages set up for the festival!

They performed 3 songs in Japanese, including Superstar. There was quite a crowd formed around them, compared to the other stages. Quite a few Japanese fangirls were there, some prepared with star-shaped glowsticks and fansigns!

Here are a few of my pictures of Supernova.. unfortunately I was not prepared to take any videos, but I thought some people might enjoy seeing these. :)

After postponement, Lee Dong-gun enlists this week



As a Korean citizen born in 1980, actor Lee Dong-gun should have entered the military for his mandatory service no later than last year, and in fact he had received his papers and planned to enlist last summer. However, due to health reasons, he requested and was granted an extension. On June 15, he’ll report to the Chuncheon army reserve unit for a five weeks of basic training, after which he will complete two years of active duty.

I hadn’t even realized Lee hadn’t entered service yet, since the last I heard was his plans last year to go, but according to his people he has purposely kept this news quiet and hadn’t told anyone until just recently.

After debuting in 1998 as a singer and coming into fame as an actor with roles in Lovers In Paris, Smile Again, and My Boyfriend is Type B, Lee’s last drama was MBC’s When Night Comes with Kim Sun-ah in 2008. He hasn’t acted since then, which is partly due to the unfortunate passing of his younger brother, who was stabbed to death in Sydney in 2008.

If you are wondering about the first one, Zhou Mi is probably there because he wrote a song for Kangta's soon to be released new album \o/ You can read here. About the second one, Zhou Mi will be hosting the next episode of Korean Impressions together with that girl, yay!

Anyway, Siwon & Zhou Mi are so cute~ ROFL at Teuk trying to ~create a scandal~ and I'm laughing so hard at Zhou Mi jumping and flailing his arms around.

Composer charged for attempted rape by a female singer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Some dark and heavy news has hit the k-pop scene once again as it’s been reported that a composer by the name of Mr. Kim has been charged for attempted rape by a female singer only identified as Miss A.

On the 15th, the police reported that Mr. Kim was officially charged for attempted rape on Miss A. The composer is now in custody after 2 weeks since the alleged incident, but denies any sort of forced sexual encounters.

Mr. Kim expressed in disbelief, “Miss A said she liked it so all I did was hug her and then she goes and calls the police. I don’t know why she’s acting like this.”

According to Miss A, on May 28th at 10:30PM, Mr. Kim invited the female singer to his private studio to sing a track that he had created. When she arrived, he is said to have tried to get her drunk and force her into sex. Miss A fled the place while her clothes had been taken off and immediately called the police.

Their identities have been hidden for obvious reasons but knowing our super sleuth Korean netizens, perhaps they could unearth the true man that is “Mr. Kim”.

See you in two years, Lee Dong-gun



Singer-actor Lee Dong-gun began his military service on the afternoon of June 15, when he headed to the army reserve unit in Chuncheon. Per his wishes for a quiet enlistment with little fanfare, Lee had only made the announcement of his departure two days ahead of time to purposely discourage a large fan gathering. Still, a small group of fans managed to show up to send off the star (including approximately ten from Japan — he has enjoyed some popularity there as a singer — who flew up to Korea for the occasion).

Lee said, “I’m enlisting later than intended, so I worry that I might be a hindrance to the others who train with me. That’s why I want to work even harder during training. All men have to go [and fulfill military service], and I thought it would be better to do so quietly. I’ll complete my two years diligently.” Asked whether he wants to serve in the entertainers’ unit, he answered, “I set my enlistment date so quickly I haven’t even thought of that. I haven’t made any plans yet.”

Lee spent his last day as a civilian (the 14th) having drinks with his friends. He admitted that aside from his family, he hadn’t alerted anyone as to his enlistment until two days ago, when the public also found out. “I thought fans might come from far away, so I purposely didn’t let them know. I hope you won’t be sad about it.”

After making his debut as a singer in 1998, Lee went on to act in Lovers in Paris, Sweet 18, Stained Glass, Smile Again and When Night Comes.

After putting in his five weeks of basic training, Lee will serve twenty months of active duty, which puts his discharge at around March 2012.

Rivalry between Rain and Stephen Colbert continues

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For those of you who have been avid followers of Rain during his debut into the American media, you may recall his friendly rivalry with satirist and comedian Stephen Colbert.

If this is news to you, here’s a quick run through. Well, it appears as if Stephen Colbert has more to say to this “Biggest Badass Star!”

On the latest episode of The Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert talked about his Korean arch nemesis in a segment called, “Who’s Not Honoring Me Now?” Describing Rain as a “man who takes cruel pleasure at beating me in things” Colbert listed out all of Rain’s achievements in comparison to himself. In addition, he questioned Rain’s validity for winning the 2010 MTV Movie Awards for the “Biggest Badass Star,” stating, “Clearly, he only won the Badass award because his movie has the word ‘ass’ in the title twice…and was bad.”

Later, Colbert concluded his segment on Rain with the statement, “But you know who you didn’t see in that [Ninja Assassin] clip? Me. Who’s the better ninja now?” Smart one Colbert! Check out the clip below!

Kevin and Eli’s bromance on Chef’s Kiss

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

SBS E! TV’s Chef’s Kiss is garnering a lot of attention and currently stands #1 in terms of views.

In Chef’s Kiss, U-Kiss’s Eli and Kevin work together as a team, and throughout the show the two boys overly care and talk to one another using love-filled messages – leaving the other members downright dazed. You might wonder why. Well, Eli and Kevin’s bromance gets as close to the level of watching an episode of We Got Married.

Meanwhile on the recent episode, U-Kiss visited a grocery market to purchase ingredients. The market workers showed their loving interests towards Dongho, and in turn, the other members displayed their wide array of dancing and singing skills to also get noticed by the workers. Later that day, U-Kiss caught a 60 kg (about 132 pounds) tuna and personally sliced the meat into bite size strips.

Dancing, singing, tuna catching/slicing, and some brotherly love; curious to watch this upcoming episode of Chef’s Kiss?
