The Boss will take to the stage of a philanthropic project in Japan next month alongside Hallyu stars Bae Yong-joon and Kim Hyun-joong.

It will also feature local singer Hwanhee and international stars such as Japanese singer GACKT and Vanness Wu.

The “Miso Project” is a contribution-based philanthropy project which will help non-profit organization KnK (Kokkyo naki Kodomotachi) donate proceeds from the event to underprivileged children in Cambodia and the Philippines.

“The members of The Boss have always shown a keen interest in charity work and have continuously thought of ways to help the needy children of the world,” an official from Open-World was quoted as saying.

“Message to Asia” will be broadcast in the country January 10 next year.

K-pop band Super Junior's highly anticipated performance in Singapore in January is definitely not your average concert, with its two price tiers, a massive stage and an equally massive budget.

But it appears the Singapore leg of the Super Show 3 - Super Junior The Third Asia Tour will also be very different from other concerts in terms of timing – the three-hour performance will start at 6.30pm at the Singapore Indoor Stadium instead of the usual 8pm for most concerts.

S. Korea on alert

Jitters over 'provocation' as Navy fires warning shots to drive away North's fishing boat


South Korean police officers patrolling the Han River yesterday to prepare for possible terrorist attacks in Seoul

SOUTH KOREA'S navy fired warning shots to drive away a North Korean fishing boat at a maritime border yesterday, the second incident in six days, jangling nerves in Seoul ahead of next week's G-20 summit.

The South Korean capital, about 100km south of the Demilitarised Zone, is on heightened alert ahead of the summit over concerns Pyongyang may try to create an incident to embarrass its rival.

Washington has pressed Beijing to use its influence over the North to persuade it not to create an incident in the run-up to the meeting.

South Korean President Lee Myung Bak told a news conference in Seoul that he was not expecting any trouble from across the border.

'I don't think the North will try to do anything when leaders of the international community are meeting to discuss the world economy,' he said. 'I trust the North won't do anything but still we are fully prepared.'

The North this week dismissed reports it would be a 'provocateur'. A military officer said South Korea fired 10 warning shots to force the North Korean boat to retreat early yesterday after the vessel crossed into its waters off the west coast near where one of the South's naval warships was sunk earlier this year

Big Bang reaches No. 1 on Oricon's weekly music DVD chart

A DVD by Korean boy band Big Bang has reached the No. 1 spot on Japan's prestigious Oricon chart.

According to Oricon's weekly music DVD chart, Big Bang's latest DVD "BIGSHOW BIGBANG LIVE CONCERT 2010" ranked in first, selling about 15,000 copies since going on sale in the country on October 27 and came in second in terms of DVD sales for all categories.

This will be the second time for the boys to celebrate placing on the chart; they topped the chart with their DVD "2009 BIGBANG LIVE CONCERT 'BIG SHOW'" in August of last year.

Meanwhile, the weekly music DVD chart also revealed that the "2009-2010 BIGSHOW MAKING DVD & BOOK SPECIAL REPACKAGE" positioned itself at No. 3.


The five-member group recently held a hand-shaking session at Fukuya Bookstore in Japan for the release of their book "Electric Love Tour."

Known as one of the most popular boy bands in the country for their music and fashion, Big Bang made their debut in 2006 and successfully crossed over to the Japanese pop market last June.

They will take the stage with fellow YG Entertainment labelmates such as 2NE1, Se7en and PSY for the two-day "2010 YG Family Concert" early next month.

In Japan, the Girls rule, big time

Seen as ‘second Korean wave,’ group is enjoying its popularity



With multicolored hair and immaculate makeup, eight members of Girls’ Generation were showered with camera flashes on Monday. Reporters were eager to hear from the girls who are now rocking the Japanese archipelago.

The Girls, who were giving a press conference at the Seoul Foreign Correspondents Club, had those gathered at the event whispering that they were the embodiment of “cute”: with their beaming smiles and their hugging of one another during the interview. The Girls are getting press coverage outside the country because their presence of just two months in Japan is at the forefront of what is now being called the “second Korean wave” - and they are enjoying every minute of it.

“We believe that we’ve been able to enter the foreign market because those who came before us did so well,” said leader Tae-yeon.

In the time since they debuted in Japan, the group’s popularity has risen - along with their chart rankings in the country. “Gee,” the group’s second single, shot to No. 1 on Japan’s highly-trusted Oricon daily singles chart. The group also made history for landing in the weekly “top 3 ranking” on the famous Japanese chart, something that hasn’t been done by a foreign female artist since 1980. The rankings are determined by artists’ record sales and popularity ratings gathered from its Web site.

“This is the happiest news we’ve had recently and we believe it has provided a great chance for us to try even harder,” Tae-yeon said of the group’s success.

The group is busy, and their schedule is not likely to let up anytime soon. They recently released a new single, “Hoot,” in Korea and they will be shuttling back and forth between the two countries to promote their music. In the past, artists releasing albums in Japan would usually stay in the country until it was time to release an album in Korea.

The girls see their busy schedule as an opportunity.

“You might think it would be difficult for us to make people understand us in a country that speaks a different language, but I think music speaks beyond countries. And we have a dream that we can deliver the energy we have to the public [in other countries.] Our energy, brightness ... our freshness?” Yoon-a said, laughing.

“And although we learned [Japanese] before we left, it’s an immense help for us to learn the language in our daily lives. I think that our Japanese debut is a great opportunity for us as celebrities,” Yu-ri chimed in.



The Japanese public, hit once before by a South Korean pop-culture wave with the nationwide hit, “Winter Sonata,” had middle-aged women swooning over the suave yet considerate male characters from the television drama. Profits from the drama have been measured at trillions of won since its launch in Japan in 2004.

Now, fresh-faced South Korean boy and girl groups are dominating the Japanese pop scene, and if the fans crying over Korean stars five years ago were women in their forties and fifties, now they’re girls in their teens and twenties. Experts believe this is because the younger generation has grown up raised by mothers affected by the first Korean wave, easing the younger generation into Korean food, language and music.

Another change in the new Korean wave is that the audience wants to hear Korean artists singing Korean songs - a shift from fan meetings where Korean celebrities would croon familiar, Japanese tunes to warm the fans’ hearts.

With young Japanese girls entranced by the flood of Korean pop groups, this has also affected what is worn on the street. Japanese pop culture magazines are eager to introduce the latest dance moves as well as make-up tips on how to look like the members of Kara and 4Minute, also recently introduced to the Japanese pop scene. By flipping through the pages, fans are easily informed about what the stars are wearing, what foods they like and the accessories they wear.

Weekly Japanese business magazine Nikkei Business published an article last Wednesday that said girl groups, like Girls’ Generation, would be the next leaders of South Korea’s economy after Samsung, crediting the groups’ outfits accentuating their legs, vocal abilities and familiar tunes.

“We can say that three elements came together to make this happen,” said SM Entertainment CEO Kim Young-min.

First would be the girls’ abilities, second, the management company’s planning abilities and third, the change in media. All nine members of the group are incredibly capable and they try harder and prepare to improve their skills. I think these girls would do well in any part of the world. Also, the company has honed everything about the girls’ music and presentation to Asia’s taste, including their music and choreography.

“Last, the dynamics in the music industry has shifted. Before, stars would debut on smaller stages, but now you have a larger stage, that is the Internet.”

The concert is titled "Close To You" because a smaller venue was chosen in order for Hyesung to interact more closely with this fans and bring them with a warmer performance. Ax-Korea is where Hyesung had his first fan meeting back in 2008 so the place is very meaningful to him.
