Which singer would get first place if they were to participate in Superstar K?



Music portal site Monkey3 is holding a survey that asks voters, “Which singer would get first place if they were to participate in Superstar K?“

As you can see in the photo above, the candidates are Jokwon, Goo Hara, Ga-in, Xiah Junsu, Lee Seung Gi, and Lee Hyori.

The poll is running from 10/7/10 – 10/13/10 but one candidate is clearly in the lead. In first is Lee Seung Gi with 940 votes (71%). In second, a very far second, is Xiah Junsu with 258 votes (19%). In third is Jokwon with 83 votes (6%). Following Jokwon are Lee Hyori (22 votes), Ga-in (20 votes), and Goo Hara (9 votes), respectively.

Monkey3 users and PopSeoul users have one thing in common: They really love Lee Seung Gi.

Anyway, we want to hear from you as well! Try to imagine these 6 singers auditioning their way up to the final top 6. Who will take first place in your fantasy world?

It's kind of obvious who my vote goes towards c:

AKP fails

On 4minute’s album jacket for their third Japanese single “FIRST” and “DREAMS COME TRUE“, something seems to be a bit off.

In the photo, there seems to be two HyunAs: the girl in the middle and the one on the far left both look exactly like HyunA.

Maknae Sohyun seems to be missing from the photo. It may be the photoshopping’s fault but none of them look anything like Sohyun.

The photo was released about a week ago, but fans have realized the photo’s flaw recently.

What do you guys think?

AKP is such a failure, that picture was edited to make the girls look like they have tons of makeup on by some freak who also edits Wonder Girls pix (he/she/it loves giving Yubin nosejobs and makes Yenny skinnier). real pic:

Kim Jong-Un appears alongside his father

The younger Kim stood alongside his father Kim Jong-il, North Korea's current leader, as they reviewed a massive military parade in the capital Pyongyang held to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the founding of the ruling Workers Party of Korea.

Kim Jong-un's appearance in front of thousands of goose-stepping soldiers and crowds of cheering civilians came two days after Yang Hyong-sop, a senior Workers Party official, appeared to confirm that he would be the secretive state's next leader. "Our people are honoured to serve the great president Kim Il-sung and the great leader Kim Jong-il. Now we also have the honour of serving the young general Kim Jong-un," he said on Friday.

7 200 couples say ‘I do’ in South Korea


Some 7,200 South Korean and foreign couples exchanged or reaffirmed marriage vows Sunday in the Unification Church's second mass wedding this year.

Church founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon, a self-proclaimed messiah, offered blessings for the participating couples gathered at Sun Moon University, the school he founded in Asan, south of Seoul.

"I pronounce marriage for the blessed beautiful women and handsome men standing before God, the Lord, the world, and myself," said the 90-year-old Moon.

The couples exchanged vows and held hands to pray during the one-hour spectacle, which was broadcast live online and through satellite television to 194 countries, church officials said.

"We've always grown up, hoping that we could find someone with whom we can then share a family to invite God in and to bring rejoice to God," 22-year-old Italian bride Mika Kanno said as she stood with her British husband Chris Koconey.

The participating couples also threw up their hands and cheered "Hurrah!" in unison.

The church apparently did not schedule the ceremony for the novelty of the 10-10-10 date.

Critics say the mass weddings prove the church brainwashes its followers. Followers routinely let Moon pick their spouses on the belief that he has divine insight and many meet their future spouses for the first time at the mass weddings.

Moon, who says he was 15 when Jesus Christ called upon him to carry out his unfinished work, has courted controversy and criticism since founding the Unification Church in Seoul in 1954.

He held his first mass wedding in the early 1960s, arranging the marriages of 24 couples himself and renewing the vows of 12 married couples.

Over the next two decades, the weddings grew in scale and began to involve followers from Japan, Europe, Africa, Latin America, the U.S. and elsewhere.

A 1982 mass wedding at Madison Square Garden in New York, the first held outside South Korea, drew tens of thousands of participants — and protesters. The ceremonies had been smaller in recent years.

Seung Gi on Dong Heng Chuseok Special

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Often, the harder part of volunteerism and charitable donation lies in the follow up - what happens when the camera is turned off and the volunteers left. I’m glad to have a chance to see again the family that Seung Gi made a visit to this past spring.

"Remember when Seunggi made a surprise visit to a needy family in February via KBS documentary show Dong Heng? All those cute photos with those cute kids?! He then donated 1억 KRW ($90,000 US) to the KBS welfare foundation, and then in May, sent a postcard to the 5 Siblings. Last month, Seunggi sent them another letter. Dong Heng aired a special Chuseok broadcast, including a clip about Seunggi and the 5 Siblings family, narrated by famed singer Insooni."

Flawless Sunye with the person she loves most



On October 10th, Wonder Girls’ Sunye updated her Twitter with a picture of herself with her grandmother. For those of you who don’t know, Sunye’s mother passed away when she was younger, so her grandmother raised her since she was a child. In June, Sunye lost her father to a long term illness, which makes her grandmother that much more precious to her.

Sunye tweeted,

“the person who i love the most..^^“

Fans commented, ”aww so sweet!^^“, “so sweet!!! i love my grandma too…” and “you are both extremely adorable. please thank her for us. without her, we wouldn’t have a lovely leader.”

In the photo, you can see the two girls at a children’s amusement park with two other boys, cutely posing for the camera. The exact time of when the photo was taken is still unknown, however by the looks of the photo, the girls look like they were in elementary/middle school.

This photo was originally uploaded on a fan club open board back in 2009, but had only just recently caught on with the general public.

It is also well known amongst the fans of KARA and the Wonder Girls’ that the 91′er Goo Hara and 92′er Sunmi have always had a close unnie/dongsaeng friendship with each other.

Both girls auditioned for the ‘SM Best Teenagers Contest’ back in 2005, where they both reached to the finals in the ‘Best Image’ category. They remained as close friends even after Sunmi entered JYPE as a trainee.
