KPop in Manila: Rain's Intensity Concert (Picspam!)

'Intensity': Rain & U-Kiss in Manila
September 11, 2010
MOA Concert Grounds

I'm going to get ahead of you and say that this is a full-on Rain/Bi post. I was too far from the stage during U-Kiss' part of the concert, so my photos aren't very decent. I do have a fancam of them singing End of the Road (Boyz II Men), so just tell me if you're interested and I'll upload it!

That disclaimer settled, let's get on with the Rain parade!
Rain sparkles better than Edward Cullen. Just sayin'.

Where does Taeyang rank his looks in Big Bang?

Big Bang’s Taeyang took over the dance floor as the special guest for a guerrilla date on KBS 2TV’s “Entertainment Tonight”. Greeted by a thunderous roar from his fans, Taeyang treated them to charismatic performances.

When he was asked where he stands in terms of looks among the Big Bang members, he answered 3rd place. Taeyang continued to raise the curiosity bar for the viewers because he didn’t reveal the other members’ rankings. He was also asked where he stands in terms of variety skills among the Big Bang members, to which he confessed he stands in last place. In response to how feels about his female back dancer for “I Need A Girl”, Taeyang explained, “Since I’ve known her since I was really young, she’s not my type.”

On the 25th and 26th, Taeyang will hold his official solo concerts at KyungHee University’s Hall Of Peace.

Viewers want MC Mong kicked off 'HaHa Mong Show'

With MC Mong immersed in controversy over suspicions surrounding his military service, SBS’s “HahaMong Show” was met with discontent by its viewers, causing many to flock to the message board for the show homepage.

After reports revealed that he dodged his service seven times, Korean citizens have been showing their hostility towards him and his lies. One viewer wrote, “I turned on the TV Sunday morning and saw MC Mong’s face. It left me with a bad feeling,” and “Why do we have to see his face on such a nice day?”

Others commented, “Are they trying to raise the viewer ratings for the show by using this controversy? They should’ve edited out the parts MC Mong appears on,” and “Either MC Mong needs to leave the show or the show needs to be gotten rid of completely.”

Comments were left not only on the show’s message boards but on other portals as well, clearly showing the negative feelings people have towards MC Mong. “Having to watch MC Mong is frustrating and pathetic,” “I hope that SBS is able to make a realistic decision,” and “Are they purposely trying to piss off the viewers?”

At around 12:00pm KST, the ”HahaMong” home page crashed due to the mass influx of visitors, assumed to be haters.

For the performance/individual fee in "million won" really means in "ten thousand won" which is how they usually count money in.

6000 = 60million won  which converts to 51,509 dollars (US)

2NE1 was more excited than nervous for comeback

2NE1 made their comeback earlier today on SBS Inkigayo with all three of their title tracks.

On the day of their comeback stage recording, 2NE1 had an interview with Money Today Star News prior to the recording. In the interview, the members shared how they felt about their comeback and the hardship of preparing for three title tracks.

Sandara said , “Because it’s our first full length album since our debut over 1 year ago, I’m thrilled. Although during rehearsal I was a bit nervous, but I’m trying not to be nervous. Right now I’m feeling really good.”

She continued, “I really wanted to come out fast because I felt that our fans have waited for us for a long time. Since we prepared 3 title tracks, we had to 3 times as much dance practice and 3 times as much live practice, so it was very difficult. However, I feel that we have that much more to show so we expect to really properly meet our fans… Each of the 3 title tracks have a different color… I am more excited than nervous at the thought of meeting our fans again. You will see choreography that looks like a scene at a party.”

CL shared, “Since the rehearsals, we’ve been preparing cheerfully. At first, I felt nervous while preparing for our first stage, but today, more than being nervous, I’m only trying to think of ways to make our stage more fun.”

Minzy also revealed her thoughts saying, “Because it’s our first stage in such a long time, I’m more excited than nervous. We tried really hard to completely fill our first broadcast… Since was have 3 title tracks, we really labored through practices. Now, it’s just a feeling of enjoyment for all the members.”

After recording, Park Bom added, “I feel it was an unsparing stage. Please continue to anticipate because we plan to continue to meet our fans through more wonderful stages.“

One of my boyfriends and his friend have become Psychics

Kang Dong-won and Go Soo just wrapped on the set of Psychic, their latest project with writer-director Kim Min-suk, who co-wrote The Good, The Bad, The Weird. Psychic filmed at break-neck speed for three months, and finished principal photography this week.

Kang Dong-won plays a character with the ability to invade people’s psyches with his own. It’s described as “using his eyes to move someone’s heart,” so I’m going with mind-control. He actually regrets his gift, and would rather live a peaceful life, but forces prevent him from living quietly. He meets Go Soo’s character, who is the only person he can’t control. Complications ensue.

I sort of wish this were a buddy cop movie. But they end up rivals, and the still below doesn’t bode well for one of them.

Collapse )

It’s described as a thriller-comedy, which is an interesting genre mash-up, and it looks gorgeous. I like the overall concept, especially if at any point it attempts to be an edgier dark comedy.

Psychic is currently in post-production, and plans to hit theaters in November.

Limited edition BEATS BY WONDER GIRLS Dr Dre Studio Headphones.

A few days ago, some pictures surfaced of Park Jin-young at a meeting with Monster Cable at JYPE headquarters in New York. It turns out that Monster gave Wonder Girls presents too! They are custom, crystal-studded “Wonder Girls” Beats by Dr Dre studio headphones--according to Monster Cable's Einstein Galang, it's an extremely limited edition--only 5 were made for the girls themselves.

At first I thought the headphones were just pink but woooow they actually have the WG name on them. I don't think even GD had his name on his.

FYI Monster Cable is one of the original three parties involved in the development of Beats, along w/ Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine (Interscope CEO). Excited about the implications of a JYPE-Monster partnership...

Baddest Female's dad creates robots in his spare time...

Robot made by CL’s father stars in “Can’t Nobody” MV!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

On the 12th, 2NE1’s music video for “Can’t Nobody” was released and near the middle of the video, leader CL’s solo scene is filmed before human-sized robots. These robots, as it turns out, were creations of CL’s father!

In a recent interview, CL revealed that “My father writes and makes robots in his free time” and sounding very proud of her father, she announced that “The robot that my father made will appear in the Music Video for “Can’t Nobody”!”

Her father is Lee Ki Jin, a professor of physics at SuhGang University and also a children’s story author with a few series of his own, such as “Headbutt Kkakka“. In the stories, there are characters that have been modeled after CL.

CL said that due to her father’s endless creations and his passion for them, his passion subsequently rubbed off on her. She thanked her father for his unfailing support when she became a singer.

CL laughed as she said, “When I was little, I didn’t have a TV in my house. Instead, I spent my weekends drawing with my father, listening to music, and going on walks. My mother also drew and participates in many creative activities, and I think I was greatly influenced by the two of them.

2NE1 has come back onto the stage after a year with their first full album, “To Anyone”. They have been promoting their three songs, “Clap Your Hands”, “Can’t Nobody”, and “Go Away”.

Moon Geun-young confirmed for Mary Stayed Out all Night

Moon Geun-young
and Jang Geun-seok in a romantic comedy together? Yeah, I’ll be watching.

Mary Stayed Out All Night is the manhwa adaptation that features Jang Geun-seok as a hippie musician, and now Moon will be signing up for a contract marriage with his character. Her Mary role is the daughter of a failed businessman and falls into a love triangle with an indie-band singer (Jang) and a perfect chaebol (as yet uncast).

Moon has been busy in her theatrical debut with the stage play Closer since August, and will jump into the drama as soon as the play wraps in October. It’ll premiere on KBS in October, airing on Mondays and Tuesdays after Sungkyunkwan Scandal wraps.

Seriously, sign me up! Moon has long been considered one of the best actresses of her generation, and she can wring emotion and intensity out of confused chaos (see: Cinderella’s Sister). She has, however, shied away from the romantic comedy genre, and I’d LOVE to see her tackle something light and fun. (Jang, as we know, is great in trendies.) The only rom-com I’ve seen her in is My Little Bride, which was AGES ago, but she was adorable in it.
