Rain a no-show on press conference in Manila



Korean pop superstar Jung Ji-Hoon—known simply to music fans as Rain—failed to show up at his own press conference this afternoon, September 6, at the Manila Hotel in Manila.

The press engagement was originally called at 2 p.m., only to be canceled at the last minute by the organizers. A representative from Rain's management team later told the invited members of the press and guests that a "miscommunication" had transpired between them and the Philippine promoters concerning the date of the press conference.

Park Bom's picture wrongly used


On a recent broadcast of MBC’s News Today, 2NE1’s Park Bom’s picture was wrongly presented as a photo of singer Dia.

During the broadcast, Dia’s new album was being introduced when the display image changed to a picture of Park Bom instead of Dia. MBC has revealed that it wasn’t a mistake but a simple misunderstanding.

This is not the first time Dia has been connected to Park Bom. Earlier in the year, fans have compared Dia’s looks and powerful vocals to Park Bom.

On the other hand, 2NE1 will be dropping their new album soon. Will there be further comparisons between Dia and Park Bom?

Sunye & Ye Eun talk to Verve Girl


Sun and Yenny from the Wonder Girls talk to Vervegirl about their music, fans, and plans for the future!

The Wonder Girls are a South Korean pop group that have recently earned their first song on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart!

They have recently toured with the Jonas brothers and have had the chance to meet hundreds of their fans. During their North American tour, Canadian dates were added to the second leg in Toronto, Vancouver, and Mississauga last month.

Sun and Yenny took some time out of their busy schedules to speak to Vervegirl about their music, fans, self-esteem and their future.

VerveGirl: What does it feel like to have this much success at a young age?
Yenny: I feel so grateful for what I’m doing now, and I am so happy for being able to do what I’ve been dreaming of for my entire life. Of course sometimes it becomes so much pressure because of a lot of responsibilities as a role model. I try to accept the fact that there will always be ups and downs in my life and also try to stay strong by believing in myself and to not lose focus.

SM Entertainment to take action against copycat SHINee group in Cambodia



Recently surfacing through YouTube, a video titled ‘KH Stars – Ring Ding Dong‘ has been gaining the interest of netizens.

The video reveals a 5-member Cambodian group performing a song very similar to SHINee’s Ring Ding Dong. From the song to the choreography, the Cambodian group is seen trying their best to copy SHINee, but one can notice right away that the quality isn’t as great as the real version.

Netizens have shown their opinions, commenting things such as, “Their group’s name is even ‘Ring Ding Dong’,” “If you’re going to copy, at least do it well” and “In 2009, they copied Wonder Girls. Now it’s SHINee.”

Regarding this issue, a representative of SM Entertainment revealed on the 7th:

We have never received any notice from them asking if they can use the song. This is definitely an illegal action. After confirming the details, we will take appropriate legal action.

Furthermore, SHINee in the past on February of 2010 performed in Cambodia. It was their first time visiting the place, and the country’s reaction was great.

Meanwhile, SHINee recently finished their SM Town’s Live Tour 2010 in L.A, and they returned to Korea on the 6th.

Singer Brian Joo, who recently launched an online male clothes shopping mall (http://www.storyman.co.kr), apologized regarding the site being frozen.

According to “Story Man“, “The online site for male clothing brand ‘Story Man’ suddenly became frozen on the 7th at around 5pm, so many customers and fans had to face inconveniences. We shut out the site for approximately 30 minutes and then successfully restored the site.“ The main cause of the crash was due to overlaps in customer orders for a special grand opening present event.

Brian, who heard of the crash, commented, “Right after launching, I felt sorry for fans who had to face this problem of not being able to access the site. Next time I will supplement in order to make sure the site navigation is easier.” He then continued, “Although the site was frozen, I am very thankful to those who understood the situation with an open mind. I will definitely repay that heart of mind with great style.

Meanwhile, Brian plans to release his third solo album in October. In addition, he is also looking at various scenarios for current dramas in order to transform from singer to actor in the future.

SHINee:Almighty Key

SHINee Key, “Grandmother’s clumsy note showed me that I was a bad grandson,” Tearful Confession.



SHINee member Key (real name Kim Kibum) revealed his deep love for, as well as a fun episode of, his grandmother.

On the 7th Key was a guest on SBS‘s “Strong Heart” and unveiled the story of the times with his grandmother who raised him since he was young.

Key said “My mother was in poor health right after I was born and my father was busy with work so my grandmother raised me,” and showed tears of regret as he added “But I was a disobedient grandson who caused my grandmother much heartache. I even once said ‘I never asked you to raise me, so why did you raise me and suffer.’”

Key, who says he was a rebellious grandchild, confessed that “When I came up to Seoul in order to walk the path of a singer, my grandmother gave me a note and allowance money. As I read the short note saying she loves me, my tears couldn’t stop while I was on the train.”

On this day Key brought his grandmother's note. In clumsy writing the note reads “Grandma loves Kibum.” Key said “I still carry it around with me every day. As she is a source of great strength to me, I will love her all the more,” and delivered his love.

In addition, Key revealed that his grandmother, who is very proud of him, has a hit sense regarding songs.

Key boasted of the sense his grandmother, who is over eighty, possesses as he said “During ‘Juliette’ promotions my grandmother said that the song is difficult and that ‘it is the age of hook songs.’ On top of that she even said that if you want to rise you need songs like Super Junior’s ‘Sorry Sorry’ and Son Dambi’s ‘Saturday Night.’

Key added, “During ‘Ring Ding Dong’ grandmother said, ‘Hey, this will work’ and it really did become a big hit. This time I also asked her about ‘Lucifer’ and she said ‘I’lll have to see further’ and gave a cool answer.” He revealed the fact that he talks to her on the phone every day and that for several years his grandmother’s ringback tone has been Hyunyoung’s “Nuna’s Dream,” giving the audience laughter.

Meanwhile on this day Key recorded a video message for his grandmother who raised him. Key said, “Grandma, Kibummie has grown a lot so you don’t have to worry. I work hard and I take good care of my health too. You’re always a source of strength and I love you,” and expressed the warm heart of a grandson.

"Girls' Generation Will Not Follow In TVXQ's Footsteps"


"Girls' Generation will not follow in TVXQ's footsteps."

At a press conference in Beverly Hills, L.A., Kim Young Min (40) of SM Entertainment stated that, "Contrary to what is expected, Girls' Generation's future plans in Asia will not focus solely on Japan." He implied that Girls' Generation would take the complete opposite road to carve a place for themselves in Japan from TVXQ, who he pointed out had focused completely on Japanese activities after their debut there and had then become the top of Asia.

He emphasized that, "Girls' Generation's primary goal is to become 'No.1 in Asia', so it is essential that we construct a system for them where their popularity and talents are verified in other Asian countries so that they naturally become popular in Japan. They will not follow the footsteps of TVXQ, who began to focus on gaining awareness in Asia only after their success in Japan."

Taeyang to duet with Solar concert guest IU





Taeyang, who is currently preparing for his concert Solar - set for the 25th and 26th of this month - stated in an interview today that IU would be a musical guest at his concert. He stated, “The only concert guest is IU. I invited her as a guest because I always appreciated her sincere approach to music.”

IU, a huge fan of Taeyang, is said to be preparing a special song for the concert, nothing from any of her own albums. She plans to perform live with a guitar, showing a side of herself that she’s unable to reveal regularly during broadcasts. The two are also said to be practicing for a duet. Fans of the two performers are probably curious about the outcome of their practice, as well as exactly how much Taeyang appreciates IU’s “sincere approach to music.”
