Kim Jeong-hoon's 9th Japanese single enters Oricon chart

Korean singer and actor Kim Jeong-hoons' ninth Japanese single has placed within the top 10 slots of the prestigious Oricon daily music chart.

According to his agency Mersenne Entertainment on Friday, Kim's latest single titled "Ardente," which entered the charts at No. 13 spot when it went on sale on August 18, came in at ninth place on Oricon's daily music chart yesterday.

"It is amazing to see his single rise up the chart even while he is in the military," an official from Mersenne told 10Asia over the phone.

Kim, 30, made his debut in 2000 as one of the vocalists in the duo UN. The group disbanded in 2005 and he branched out into acting, starring in several movies and TV series, most notably in MBC's hit TV series "Goong."

He then resumed his music career in Japan, releasing his seventh single "Blue Moon" which debuted at No. 7 on Oricon's singles daily chart in July.

Kim entered the army in April 2009 to fulfill his two-year mandatory military duties, where he is serving as a DJ on military radio show "Kim Jeong-hoon's Voice Mail" at Korea's Defense Media Agency. He will be discharged in February 2011.

He will be making an appearance at the Dream Concert, hosted by the Defense Media Agency, on August 28 in Seoul Plaza.

This is a Shinee + SMtown post

SHINee’s leader Onew recently revealed his ability to drink on the variety show he stars in as one of the hosts.

SHINee, who is currently gaining popularity through their latest album ‘Lucifer‘, starred as a guest on KBS 2TV Night Star.

The MCs of the show asked the group who could drink the most alcohol, all of the members did not hesitate in picking their leader Onew.

Key then explained “Onew was not good at drinking at first, but all of a sudden his amount increased.”

The members also revealed that “Onew does not drink with SHINee members, so I am curious as to who he is always drinking with” cornering Onew into a nervous and awkward situation on the show.

Onew was asked what his maximum limit in drinking was and he answered “I’ve drank 5 and a half bottles of Soju before” surprising the rest of the members and the MC.

You can catch this episode of Night Star at 11:15PM (Korean Standard Time) on the 22nd of August 2010.

Key still rattling on his leader:
"On YHS/Night Star, (Onew) acts more like a role model, is more kind, listens well to the hyungs; but in fact, it’s not like that. That smile you see on TV? I’ve never seen it before."

10Asia Interviews the Waffle Boy

"I don't know where he went. Whether he went to the countryside by himself, whether he went to meet his mother, or he might have been on his way to commit suicide." This was Kim Jae-wook's explanation of his character Hong Jae-wook from SBS TV series "Bad Boy" who left alone, leaving everything behind. This man who had always been the first to take on the most 'hot' and trendy roles as proven in MBC drama "The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince" and film "Antique," always turned his back on the spotlight headed towards him. And he then showed a new side to him through "Bad Boy" by playing an heir of a conglomerate who is temperamental and acts the way he pleases, yet on the inside is actually craving for affection. But despite his jobs as being a model, actor and musician, the most attractive aspect to Kim is Kim Jae-wook himself. 10Asia took a peak into the interesting world that this 27-year-old man lives in.

10: It's been about two weeks since shooting for "Bad Boy" has ended. How have you been since then?
Kim Jae-wook: It feels like it's been more than a month. I did nothing but sleep. I'm tired no matter how much I sleep and the fatigue won't go away. When I'm working on a drama or movie, the thought that I'll get to meet so and so and do this and that when I'm done, is in a way sort of the hope and drive that keeps you going but now that I'm actually done, my body can't keep up. I feel lethargic about everything right now.
