MC Mong arrested



Rapper MC Mong has been going through some tough time lately, being accused of intentionally dodging military service. It appears that the authorities have finally decided to officially charge him. MBC radio news reported today at noon Korean time that MC Mong will be indicted without physical restraint by the Korean government. The rapper’s management company has cut all of its contact lines with the media after the news has been released, further adding to the suspicions.

Indicment without physical arrest means that MC Mong is under arrest and will be going through a trial to determine whether he really is guilty or not. However, he will not held in a cell due to his circumstances, such as low threat of running. He has been accused of intentionally removing all of his teeth but the front ones and canines, which would make him ineligible for full military service as a soldier if the lack of teeth was due to natural reasons.

It is odd to see that the news came out at noon, considering the fact that MC Mong was still being investigated by officials in an inquiry. However, if the news wasn’t true, then why has his company cut all contacts and gone silent, instead of explaining what is really going on? Only time will tell.

Stay tuned to omonatheydidn't as the case progresses.

4minute's Big Performance At Mnet 20's Choice Awards Is Anticipated By Male Fans



While 2010 particularly had a trend of having girl groups, 4minute (who came out as the best girl group in the first half of the year) will have a performance on August 26th at the Mnet 20's Choice Awards.

Although men and women of all ages like 4minute, they are popular for receiving complete support from men in their 20's due to their sexiness and maturity.

Since now, although they had various activities with their hit songs 'Hot Issue', 'Muzik', 'Huh', and 'I My Me Mine', it is expected that this will be their first performance at the Mnet 20's Choice Awards.

Mnet's production crew said, "Although 4minute recently swept high rankings with their hot popular songs, they can't enjoy a club-like environment due to the fact that Kim HyunAh and Kwon SoHyun are members who aren't in their 20's yet. In this year's Mnet 20's Choice Awards, it is expected that the performances that are emitting a club-like sense will display a different color as the audience (in their 20's) will stand on stage with them."

4minute's performance is gathering anticipation, knowing that it will be extraordinary. In the meantime, while the 20's Choice Award votes for 'the star with the most influence' is heating up with excitement in its last stage, the online voting will be available until August 24th through Daum.

The 2010 Mnet Choice Awards will kick off on August 26th at Sheraton Grand Walker Hill River Park Poolside in Seoul, Gwangjang-dong.

BEAST’s Lee Kikwang collaborates with Ahn Jinkyung… “We will be anticipating the avatar rap”


BEAST’s Lee Kikwang, who is already popular from ‘avatar dating’ on ‘Sunday Sunday Night - Hot Brothers’, has been currently attracting attention as he collaborated with the singer Ahn Jinkyung.

Lee Kikwang has contributed in the featuring of Ahn Jinkyung’s title song ‘Love is Pathetic’ off of her second mini album ‘BE THE VOICE’ that will be released on the 26th.

Especially since Lee Kikwang is in charge of the vocals in BEAST, this will be his first project that he will be rapping in, surprising the listeners with his attractive voice in a melody line instead of just a regular rap.

Supposedly Lee Kikwang showed off amazing rap skills so that the staff working on the album commented, “Is there someone controlling Lee Kikwang’s rap in the back,” giving the rap the nickname “Lee Ki Kwang Avatar Rap.

The title song ‘Love is Pathetic’ has been composed by the composer/ex-bboy Oh Sunghoon, who has composed ‘Bad Person’ on Ahn Jinkyung’s first solo album, ‘Learned my lesson in love’ and ‘I came alone’ sung by December, and ‘Not until love’ sung by K.Will. The title song is an emotional dance song that shows off a fresh beat along with Ahn Jinkyung’s husky, but thick voice.

She is also being envied by many fans as Mir from MBLAQ had featured in the title song off her first solo album, ‘Bad Person’, and now on her second album title song, she will be having Lee Kikwang from BEAST featuring in her song.

Ahn Jinkyung stated, “I’m thankful that even more of an attractive song was born thanks to Lee Kikwang’s rap featuring, and I think this will be a big support for me as I promote.” She added, “Please show a lot of attention and love towards the title song ‘Love is Pathetic’."

Meanwhile, the teaser clip for the music video ‘Love is Pathetic’ that Ahn Jinkyung and Park Jaejung will be showing off their acting skills in will be released on the 23rd on various video sites like GomTV and MGoon.

Big Bang's HBIC got angry with his seniors in the 1st episode of ‘Enjoy Today’?





In the new TV programme ofMBC which is broad casted every Sunday night, ‘Enjoy Today’, Seungri is given a chance to be one of the regular MCs of the variety show but he got angry when having the first meeting with the veteran entertainers, Hyeong-jun Shin, Jung Joon Ho, etc. In the first episode of ‘Enjoy Today’, the group of MCs met in an embarrassing atmosphere. The first arrive was Saori, then Seungri also arrived. Saori expressed that he had never met with Seo Ji Seo and Seungri which reflected his worries and anxiety and at the same time great expectation about their first encounter.

Exactly as what Saori expected, he met Seungri quite awkwardly. The two people switched their conversation to the topic of ‘how to punish the latecomers’. They,together with Seo Ji Seo and Kim Hyun-Chul who arrived a little bit later also discussed the ‘gang of actors’- Jung Joon Ho, Kong Hyung Jin and Shin Hyun Joon. ‘Why little brothers always have to arrive earlier?’ They were so discontented that they decided each of them should mumble one sentence when the latecomers arrived.On the other hand, ‘the gang of actors’ arrived with no hints of what was going to happen on them. On that day, Seo Ji Seo came out to complain first; however, the veteran ‘gang of actors’ was not scared a bit. Then , the little brother, Seungri stood out and shouted to the seniors ,’Being an actor does not mean you are the king!’

Having a four-year difference with Seungri’s father, Shin Hyun Joon said ‘If I had not been careful enough, I would have had a son now too!’ which caused great laughter’s. In the first episode of “Enjoy Today’, the MCs tried to make fun of each other and found out the characteristics of one another, the result are: Shin Hyun Joon is ‘careless incident’, Kong Hyung Jin is ‘ YEAHS’, Seungri is ‘the burning youth’, Seo Ji Seo is ‘MUTE’ and Saori is ‘ Korea Dolphin’. All of these titles generalize the features of them.

Miss A appreciates their Starcraft fanboys?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Popular girl group Miss A from JYP Entertainment had a few thanks to give to Doh Jae Wook, a professional Starcraft player also known as SK Telecom T1’s Best (Protoss).

“Thank you so much for giving us free publicity with your ceremony.”

In the Proleague, after turning some heads by doing the choreography for Miss A’s Bad Girl Good Girl, Best received an autographed copy of Miss A’s album along with a note from the girls themselves!

On the 12th of July, during a ceremony for the Shinhan Bank’s Proleague, Best plopped down right on the floor and went into the signature move for the hit single, shaking his legs back and forth, losing all dignity that had been gained through countless beastly performances that had made Aiur proud.

The ceremony has sparked a new nickname for Doh Jae Wook, who is now rather infamously known as “Miss Doh” (Dohsuh A). Because E-sports has such a big following in Korea with many players making six figure salaries, Miss A wanted to sincerely thank Doh Jae Wook for introducing them into the progame community.

“We saw the ceremony and loved it. If the opportunity arises, we would like to teach you the dance.”

An anonymous member of the SK team said, “Even though Best and I are on the same team, I’ve never seen him this happy.”

Doh Jae Wook’s response?

“I don’t have too much interest in meeting Miss A to learn the dance because I’m very shy and I would feel extremely embarrassed dancing for them. Just the handwritten note and CD alone makes me completely happy.”

[Newsen Baek Jihyun Reporter]

The idol group BEAST has challenged the written portion of the driving license test.

BEAST had revealed on the last episode of MBC every1 ‘Idol Maid’ that all they had to use a lot of money of riding the taxi even during their break time because all of them didn’t have a license.

Because the person who places last on the test was punished to put up an embarrassing picture of themselves on their mini homepage, twitter, or other social networking sites, all the members showed themselves studying intensely.

Most of the BEAST members challenged themselves for a regular license with 60 points as their goal, however Yang Yoseob was the only one who challenged himself for a higher license requiring 70 or more points.

The sixth episode of ‘Idol Maid’ with BEAST studying intensely for their driver license will be broadcasted on the 25th of August at 6PM KST.
