John Park auditions for Superstar K

He kind of fizzled out on American Idol earlier this year, but John Park is not giving up on stardom. Here he is auditioning for this season of Superstar K.

This video isn't subbed, and I don't speak Korean unfortunately, but here are some highlights anyway.
  • John has a terrible new haircut.
  • He also has a girlfriend. (Why God, why!)
  • The judges are Seo In-Young, Lena Park, Tiger JK, and Tasha
  • He sings two songs. One in English (If I Ain't Got You) and then he's asked to do another in Korean (2 Different Tears).

miss A Min clarifies, “I have no special relationship with Yoon DooJoon”

Rookie girlgroup miss A member Min expains her relationship with BEAST Yoon DooJoon.

Min was recently on SBS PowerFM ‘Park SoHyun’s Love Game’ and she talked about her thank-you speech after winning #1 on SBS Inkigayo recently.

After winning the Mutizen, Min was seen in tears and she said, “Thank you Park JinYoung. And also thank you, Yoon DooJoon. Omo, I mentioned Yoon DooJoon, what’s wrong with me.” After the incident, netizens commented, “Does she have some special relationship with Yoon DooJoon?”

Min spoke up about that, “It is a misunderstanding. There is this Doo HyunSoo department head in our company. And I somehow always get his name and Yoon DooJoon’s name confused. And during the thank-you speech, I was so flustered and I got the names wrong again. I really do not have any special relationship with Yoon DooJoon, I wanted to thank our department head.”

DJ Park SoHyun said, “I see.. Yoon DooJoon was quite troubled about what he had done to you that you had thanked him during your thank-you speech.”

The radio show will air on 13th August at 7pm.

'Invincible Youth' MBLAQ, Lee Joon's abs vs. Mir's thighs, unique introductions

MBLAQ captured the G7 members with their unusual introductions on 'Invincible Youth'.

On the August 6th episode of KBS 2TV's 'Invincible Youth', MBLAQ received the hot welcome of the G7 members (Narsha, Goo Hara, Hyomin, Han Sunhwa, JooYeon, Victoria, and Kim Sori).

With the exception of Lee Joon, it was the MBLAQ members' first time appearing on 'Invincible Youth', and so it was under hot interest that they introduced themselves. Lee Joon revealed his abs with the request of MC Kim ShinYoung.

After Lee Joon revealed his abs, Mir, who was next, said that "I feel pressured because he showed his body first", and showed his hard thighs instead of abs, saying, "Please treat me well" and creating laughter.

After Lee Joon's abs and Mir's thighs, the rest of the MBLAQ members could not let go of their anxiety. Thunder showed off a freeze (?), leader SeungHo did a tumbling without using his hands, and G.O did a 'rifle dance'.

MBLAQ Lee Joon is tricked by hidden camera on 'Invincible Youth'

Popular idol group MBLAQ guest-starred on 'Invincible Youth' and spent an enjoyable day with G7.

On the August 6th episode of KBS 2TV's 'Invincible Youth', MBLAQ helped G7 with gathering farm crops.

On this broadcast, MBLAQ member Lee Joon was tricked into a hidden camera by Kim TaeWoo. At first, Lee Joon and G7 had planned to hidden camera TaeWoo and trick him. The plan was to have Lee Joon taste raw eggplant while gathering vegetables and react to allergies.

However, because Kim TaeWoo was not easy to fool, he quickly found out that it was a hidden camera. He planned a hidden camera on Lee Joon next. MBLAQ and G7 thoroughly planned out how to trick Lee Joon.

Using the allergy as an excuse, Lee Joon was subjected to various folk remedies to treat his (fake) allergies and was tricked into a hidden camera. Kim TaeWoo's 'straight' face acting made Lee Joon flustered, and this was when they revealed that it was a hidden camera to him.

Love lines between the MBLAQ members and G7 were also shown. MBLAQ member G.O, especially, created a strange relationship with After School's JooYeon by doing a 'rifle dance'.

Also, MBLAQ member Mir told JooYeon that "If you want to catch G.O, right now is the best time", turning the entire filming into laughter.

tl;dr:  It was all fake. They tried to trick Taewoo with Joon faking allergies and it backfired because he noticed it was a hidden camera.

Thunder & Goo Hara have a ”pink light” moment, making G.O & Hyomin angry

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

MBLAQ member Thunder and Kara member Goo Hara had a “pink” atmosphere (T/N: a flirtacious/lovey atmosphere).

On the August 6th episode of KBS 2TV’s ‘Invincible Youth’, No JooHyun, Kim TaeWoo, Kim ShinYoung, Brown Eyed Girls’ Narsha, T-Ara’s Hyomin, Secret’s Han Sunhwa, Kara’s Goo Hara, f(x)’s Victoria, After School’s JooYeon, Kim Sori, and MBLAQ appeared.

On this day, Thunder and Goo Hara, who went out to pick eggplants, had a particularly caring and “pink” atmosphere.

When the two were walking while carrying the eggplants, Goo Hara bumped into Hyomin and jokingly asked her to move, and Hyomin, whose feelings got hurt, said to G.O, “Hara isn’t working but dating instead”.

G.O got angry and began cracking down on Hara and Thunder’s dating, but when Hara said, “Are you interested in me?”, he got flustered and bitterly stopped.

At the filming, Goo Hara suggested to Thunder that they stop using formal talk with each other, and Thunder made laughter by drawing a line by saying that they could not use formal talk, but that she must call him ‘oppa’.

Park Ji Hyun Leaves V.O.S

The rumors about Park Ji Hyun possibly leaving V.O.S is now confirmed via his Cyworld mini-hompy.

Through his mini-hompy, Park Ji Hyun confirmed, “V.O.S is not my name any more… But I will never forget.”

He also thanked those who have helped him throughout the years, “I will try my best no matter what situation I am in to make sure your support for me will not go to waste.”

Park Ji Hyun then apologized to his fans, “I am embarrased and sorry that I am in a situation like this.”

In July of 2009, the V.O.S trio of Park Ji Hyun, Choi Hyun Joon and Kim Kyung Rok, all opted out of their contract with Star Empire Entertainment in order to join J-Born Entertainment.

However, earlier this year, members Choi Hyun Joon and Kim Kyung Rok returned to Star Empire leaving Park Ji Hyun in J-Born. Back then, it was reported that the group will still go on with Park Ji Hyun, even while under a different company. But things have since fallen apart.

KARA's infectious buttdance spreading in Japan!

Collapse )

KARA's 'Mister' music video is being played on the main streets of Shibuya in Japan, becoming a hot issue among fans.

With their Japanese debut just around the corner, KARA recently revealed the music video for the Japanese version of 'Mister' and began full-scale promotional activities. KARA crossed to Japan at the end of July and currently, they are recording and being interviewed for a popular TV program.

After news spread that on the 1st of August, the 'Mister' music video CF would be broadcast on the LCD screen of a building in Shibuya, one of the busiest districts in Tokyo, it attracted the fans interest.

The 'Mister' music video CF is being broadcasted on Shibuya's Tsutaya building. The Tsutaya building is located at the very core of Shibuya, in a central location. The music video CF is being aired through a LCD screen installed on the front of the building. According to Japanese fans, the 'Mister' music video CF airs for 15 seconds every 2 hours.

Besides that, there are also a number of banners promoting KARA's debut spread around the streets of Tokyo, garnering interest as well.

Unlike Korea, which relies heavily on online promotions, the Japanese market focuses mostly on offline promotions and therefore, outdoor billboards are considered an important marketing tactic.

KARA will release their Japanese debut single 'Mister' on the 11th of August.
