Ukrainian group copies Big Bang?

K-Pop is spreading globally and some astute Ukrainian netizens recently noticed that the MV for Ukrainian group Время и Стекло / Time and Glass looked very familiar to Big Bang’s MV for their Japanese single ‘Tell Me Goodbye’, which was released back in May.

After reviewing both MV’s, I can see why people would see think that it was copied as there were many similar scenes. In any case, you can be the judge & jury by comparing the two MV’s below.

How do idol groups distribute their income?

After 2PM recently revealed how they distribute their income on a variety program, fans have been showing increasing interest in the different ways their favorite idol groups choose to share their income. Individual member activities within idol groups have become quite prominent lately, and the popularity gaps between members can sometimes be huge.

Most of the groups let the members who embark on solo activities keep what they earn; groups like After School and Jewelry are known for allowing individually-earned profits to remain solely with the earner. UEEKahi, Park Jung Ah, and Seo In Young are often coveted for the advertisement appeal, which makes them the bigger money makers of the group.

North Korea media launches anti-Japan campaign

Pyongyang: North Korean media has launched a large-scale anti-Japanese propaganda campaign, demanding from Tokyo apologies and compensations for atrocious crimes of the past.

The leading party newspaper Rodong Shinmun, the Korean Central News Agency, the government Minju Choson newspaper, experts from the Academy of Sciences and other governmental, public and scientific organisations take part in the campaign.

The Rodong Shinmun noted yesterday that 100 years ago, Japan rudely fabricated the so-called Annexation Treaty and other documents practically establishing Japanese protectorate, which five years later resulted in the occupation of the whole Korean peninsula.

As a result, "the Japanese authorities created in Korea colonial rule, while its citizens found themselves in the situation of slaves," the newspaper stressed. It emphasised that Japanese imperialists "are bitter enemies of the Korean nation”.

Japan's attempts to justify its criminal past only strengthen Korean's determination "to reckon with it".

KCNA said that patriotically minded Koreans who sought national independence and participated in anti-Japanese fight were to be annihilated. Those who spoke in favour of the observance of most elementary rights of Koreans were arrested and tortured.

"The damage caused to Korea during the Japanese occupation is incalculable," the news agency stressed.

It warned that the people and Army of North Korea "are resolute to make Japan pay for its past crimes". Tokyo "must apologise for the crimes during the period of colonial rule in Korea and pay a compensation," KCNA wrote.

The North Korean Foreign Ministry says "Japan must abandon attempts to rewrite history and revive militarism, and it also must stop hostile policy against the DPRK".

The Foreign Ministry demands from Tokyo to abandon Tokyo's unjustified claims for a small group of Tokto islands. North Korean diplomats say that only by fulfilling these demands, Japan "will be able to make contribution to the strengthening of peace and stability in the region, as well as ensure its own security".

Because the world needs more Sweet Potatoes: Seohyun initiates skinship with Yong Hwa in Japan

title or description

‘Wife’ Seohyun surprised her ‘husband’ Yong Hwa with sudden physical contact during their trip in Japan for MBC’s “We Got Married.”

Broadcasted on November 20th, the episode featured the couple throwing an impromptu drinking session between themselves, while staying at a traditional Japanese ryokan.

Jung Yong Hwa asked Seohyun, “Do you want to drink?“, to which Seohyun readily agreed, “Yes, let’s go, let’s go.”

The two left the motel and headed for the corner store in order to purchase beer and other snacks. However on their way back home, the distance between them must have felt awkward because Seohyun decided to abruptly link arms with Yong Hwa.

Immediately, Yong Hwa froze but quickly tried to recover his composure by stating, “What’re you doing?”

In a later private interview, Yong Hwa coolly revealed, “Isn’t it cooler for the man to have his hands in his pockets and let the woman link arms?”

Unfortunately, he couldn’t quite convince the MCs of his manly charms, since they witnessed his surprised facial expression after Seohyun’s stunt.

Yonghwa makes a surprise visit to Minhyuk

(click for full image)

CNBLUE’s Jung Yonghwa personally visited fellow member Kang Minhyuk in order to support him during filming for his first drama.

Despite being in the middle of his own show recording, he immediately rushed over to the studio next door after hearing that Kang Minhyuk was filming SBS’s “It’s Okay, Daddy’s Daughter“.

According to a representative on set, “As his acting senior, Jung Yonghwa looked very much like the group’s sturdy leader and hyung, as he gave Minhyuk any advice he could in order to help him calm down.”

When asked about what type of advice he received, Kang Minhyuk answered, “Yonghwa-hyung told me to do my best in whatever I was doing and make sure that I act with respect. I feel really strong and thankful for Yonghwa-hyung coming to support me despite his busy schedule.”

The drama’s pilot episode will air on November 22nd at 8:50 PM.
