So good news, we get a "Let Me Be the One" MV. Bad news, hardly any promotions and the group already seems to be splitting apart to do separate activities :( This whole thing might be the beginning of the end, but I will trust HyunJoong's words from the fanmeeting. Don't believe in rumors, believe in them. They love the fans, they love the group, they love each other. It may be the end of their contract, but I think SS501 will live on in their hearts and the hearts of their fans.

North Korea players go missing


“Lost” North Korean players “found”

The four North Korean football players reported as “missing” have turned up for World Cup practice – FIFA says they
were left out of Tuesday’s game against Brazil because of a technical error.

The players – Pak Sung Hyok, An Chol Hyok, Kim Kyong Il and Kim Myong Won – were on the field for training today.
I would like to know who reported them missing?

In the team list where there subsitutes, the North Korean team listed them as “absent”. Was it some mischievous hack who translated “absent” to “missing”, I wonder.

The World Cup is always a fascinating tournament as it constantly supplies moments of drama, genius and the absurd as FIFA have no idea of the whereabouts of four North Korean players.

Kim Myong, Kim Kyonh II, Na Chol and Pak Sung Hyok have literally disappeared as the four where nowhere to be found when North Korea took to the field in their Group G opener against the five-time champions Brazil.

A spokeperson from FIFA has admitted that they are also in the dark as to where the players could be because no one form North Korea has relayed the status of the players in question.

No comments or statements have been issued from the North Korea camp and the location of the four will remain a mystery until then.

The date has been set – Kangin of Super Junior will be joining the army on July 5th, and will fulfill his required military service years as a Korean male.

According to related sources, Kangin will be entering a military training base located in Chongnam Nonsan, as an active-duty soldier. The fact that he’s in full service is very noteworthy, since male celebrities usually opt for public service, which requires less physical activities and working hours.

Kangin had already announced of his plans on entering the army at a fan meeting held on May, promising to return as a better and maturer person. Let’s all wish him the best of luck for the two-year-long journey ahead of him.

YG family to heat up this Summer

Big Bang and 2NE1, even Se7en and Gummy. YG Family is heating up the music world within Korea this summer. If it is in the direct expression of Hyun Seok Yang, it is finally ‘all YG called out to mobilize.”

YG family has not release any new album ever since the release of mini album of girl group 2NE1 in July of last year. One of the biggest entertainment companies with the most popular idols such as Big Bang and 2ne1 and top solo artists such as Se7en and Gummy has taken a break for 1 year. Why?

Dong Bang Shin Ki’s three members – Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun and Youngwoong
Jaejoong, who are currently involved in a lawsuit with their management company,
SM, will work together with Kanye West, an influential figure in America’s pop
music industry, for their upcoming album.

Born in 1977, Kanye West is an African-American producer, and has produced his
own debut album “The College Dropout” as a singer in 2004. Thereafter, he went
on to release four other albums, all of which topped the Billboard Charts, and
have received awards in more than 13 categories in the Grammy Awards. He was
once the producer of Jay-Z, Alicia Keys and Janet Jackson, and is currently
running a hip-hop record company known as “GOOD Music”. He will, on either the
6th or 7th of this coming August, be headlining in the “Summer Week&T 2010”
organized by SK Telecom.

The spokesperson of the three members expressed on the 16th that “they will
be going over to Kanye West’s production studio to work on the upcoming album
soon. Besides Kanye West, they will also work with pop singer Timbaland in LA
and Miami for this production.”

The above matter has been confirmed in Jung Jae Yun’s blog. Jung Jae Yun was
once a member of the group SOLID, and on the 15th, he wrote on his blog, stating
that “40% of the income of Japanese company, AVEX, comes from Dong Bang Shin Ki
alone; (DBSK) are extremely influential artistes. The three members, who were
once from Korea’s SM Company, will be releasing a new album, and will be working
together with Kanye West and Timbaland for this production.”

Currently, BoA, Seven, Wonder Girls and other Korean singers are carrying out
activities in America, but the three members are the first Korean artistes to be
able to sign a contract with a professional and influential pop artiste like
Kanye West for the release of an album. A related-personale in the music
industry shared that “according to composer Kim Hyeongseok, Kanye West has
given a high assessment of the abilities of the three members.

Ku's feature debut is more spoof than 'Magic'

Actors Im Ji-gyu, left, and Seo Hyeon-jin star in a scene from Ku Hye-sun's feature film debut "Magic." The tragic teen romance premiered at the 11th Jeonju International Film Festival (JIFF) and features songs written and performed by Ku. It will be released in theaters on June 24.

It's no doubt that Ku Hye-sun is talented. And ambitious.

The popular actress has displayed her prolific talent by holding a solo art exhibition, penning a novel and foraying into music, releasing an album and performing with the renowned Japanese artist Isao Sasaki. In 2008, she made her directorial debut with a short film, "Yukwehan Doumi" (Happy Helper), which screened at local and Japanese film festivals.

The 25-year-old brings to local theaters her first feature film "Magic," which premiered at the 11th Jeonju International Film Festival. Also the first film to be produced by the entertainment giant YG, the project fits in the genre of much-loved "music movies" here, though with a more art house cinema sensibility ― or at least it tries to.

Ku trips many times in her attempt to create a Proustian montage of music-heavy images, and the viewer is left with the palpable sense of lost time, quite literally (a good hour-and-a-half to be exact though it actually feels longer).
And this comes from someone who will sit through almost any experimental film.

Kinda harsh review. :-( I would like to see a review from someone who likes Korean melodramas, before judging this.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Super Junior members Kim Heechul and Heechul who recently released their 4th album and are actively promoting revealed their manly and frank image through an interview with the lifestyle magazine "Singles."

Kim Heechul and Choi Siwon showcased their different charms with the concept of a "daring criminal" and a "gentle cop" in the photo shoot, which looked as if it was from a scene from a movie. Also, in the interview which occurred at the same time as the photo shoot, they frankly revealed their personality, charms, and their ideal type of girl with the topic of "real mind of homme fatale."

[Star Diary, Part 2] “Ah, I really don’t want to become sensible…”

Part 1

Reminder: TOP’s Star Diary series is written in his point of view, as if he is writing a journal entry.

I’m starting to feel the horror of war from filming Into the Gunfire. A bomb explodes just a few steps in front of me. It’s a different feeling from filming a drama.

Eye expression is important. I have to empty myself and convey student soldier lieutenant Oh Jang Bum to the audience. I think all the times I stood on stage as Big Bang is helping with my eye expression in acting. It’s because there were many times when I would convey my emotion to the audience with my eyes on stage. Conveying my own emotions to others in this way is what gives me the most joy.
