World condemns North Korean attacks

North Korea's shelling of an island in South Korea near a disputed sea border has drawn international condemnation.

US President Barack Obama said he was 'outraged' by the attack on Yeonpyeong island. It was also denounced by Russia, Japan and European countries.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon called it 'one of the gravest incidents since the Korean War' and urged restraint on both sides.

South Korea returned fire and threatened missile strikes if there were 'further provocations'.

South Korea's military had been carrying out an exercise nearby, but it denies opening hostilities by firing towards the North.

Two South Korean marines died when dozens of artillery shells landed on the island - most of them hitting a military base. Both soldiers and civilians were wounded.

Also while it's all really worrisome, South Koreans have lived with the threat of North Korea for 50 years and counting - so play nice omona!

Avex talks about TVXQ’s revival and new K-pop contracts

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Avex made some announcements on Wednesday regarding its contracts with several Korean artists, particularly TVXQ. That group, which has been on hiatus since April of this year, will be resuming activities with only two of its five members – Yunho and Changmin.

Contract issues led to a fallout between TVXQ’s members and their Korean management agency, SM Entertainment. Since April, the other three members of TVXQ – Junsu, Jejung, and Yuchun – have been signed with a different agency, and they have been performing under the name JYJ for several months. However, SM Entertainment stated that Yunho and Changmin “have not given up on the dream of TVXQ.” As a result, they will revive the TVXQ name in 2011.

Details of their activities are still unknown, but they are expected to restart in January. According to Sankei Sports, one source has said that a new song is already in production for a planned CD release in Japan.

Besides TVXQ, Avex has had contracts with two other SM Entertainment artists, BoA and J-Min, for several years. On Wednesday, they re-announced that they have completed exclusive contracts with two more artists, SUPER JUNIOR and f(x).

It was already revealed several weeks ago that SUPER JUNIOR will be holding three concerts at Yokohama Arena next February to accompany their debut release.

Moon Hee Jun and his bad relationship with Tony An

Moon Hee Jun revealed on a recent episode of MBC’s ‘Radio Star‘ that there was a time when his relations with fellow H.O.T member, Tony An, had soured.

During the program, Yoon Jong Shin asked Moon Hee Jun, “When Tony An came on, Kim Gura said that Tony An had a bad relationship with you – what do you think about that?“. The singer replied, “It’s foolish talk.”

However, he continued, “To be honest, when we split into two groups of 3:2, our friendship did decline. But in a situation like that, a bad relationship was all that could result from it.”

But Moon Hee Jun later confirmed, But right now I consider him as a close brother.”

H.O.T., considered to be the iconic Korean boy band from back in the day, disbanded in 2001. That year, Kangta and Moon Hee Jun remained with SM Entertainment, while Tony An, Lee Jae Won, and Jang Woo Hyuk moved to a different company and formed the unit ‘JTL‘.
