Daesung accuses Yonghwa of trying to be like him

On SBS’s “Every Night”, which aired on November 22, a controversy about Kkal-Chang (slip sole) aroused between two idols!

Daesung from Big Bang is the one who started the talk about Kkal-Chang. Lee Kyeongsil said to him “You look taller now than in waiting room”. Daesung replied “Jung Yonghwa did the same thing too”. The CNBlue vocal was irritated by that sentence and denied it.

After continuous challenges from Daesung, Yonghwa took off his shoes and proved that he was really innocent. Daesung was embarrassed and said “He is a faithful guy”.

Do you look down on idol who wears a Kkal-Chang(shoe lifts)?

Taeyang; GQ Man of the Year Interview

Relaxing after the photo shoot. Having removed the luxurious fur coat, Taeyang saunters over to us. The editor and the photographer are in the midst of talking about a delivery crisis that occurred due to traffic backed up by a state function on November 11th. The bonsai pine tree that was to be used for the shoot almost didn’t make it in time. After listening quietly, Taeyang murmurs, “Why do they make such a fuss…?

Having never been one for acting up or posturing – in a Korean mainstream music scene where, nowadays, it’s hard to even distinguish Idol from Ah-ee-deul [children] – Taeyang is stubbornly walking a different path. Rather than insisting on a certain concept, he has the belief that he’s doing what he wants. Rather than mindlessly complaining about the state of the music scene, he shows the determination to triumph over its weaknesses. Rather than flaunting insistently, he has the maturity as a singer to sometimes just keep quiet.

Religious Freedom and North Korea

The 2010 State Department International Religious Freedom Report continues to assess that religious freedom does not exist in North Korea.

The 2010 State Department International Religious Freedom Report continues to assess that religious freedom does not exist in North Korea. U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights, Democracy, and Labor Michael Posner said the human rights situation overall in North Korea is desperate. That is why North Korea continues to be named a country of particular concern along with Burma, China, Eritrea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Uzbekistan.

According to the latest State Department International Religious Freedom Report, the North Korean government deals harshly with all opponents, including those who engage in religious practices considered unacceptable. Religious and human rights groups outside the country provided numerous reports in previous years that members of underground churches were arrested, beaten, tortured, or killed for their religious beliefs. An estimated 150,000 to 200,000 people were believed to be held in political prison camps in remote areas, some for religious reasons. Prison conditions are harsh. According to refugees and defectors who had been in prison, prisoners held on the basis of their religious beliefs were often treated worse than other inmates.

Due to North Korea's inaccessibility and the inability to gain timely information from inside the country, reports of abuses remained difficult to verify. Foreign media and a South Korean non-governmental organization reported in August that 23 Christians were arrested in May 2010 for belonging to an underground church in Kuwol-dong, Pyonsong City, South Pyongan Province. Reportedly 3 were executed, and the others were sent to Yoduk political prison camp.

In June 2009, South Korean activists reported that Ri Hyon Ok was publicly executed for distributing Bibles in the city of Ryongchon near the Chinese border. She allegedly was accused of spying and organizing dissidents. However, claims about Ri Hyon Ok could not be independently verified.

The United States believes that religious freedom is both a fundamental human right and an essential element to any stable, peaceful, thriving society. "Because we believe in religious freedom," said U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, "we are committed to the right of all people everywhere to live according to their beliefs without government interference."

Why are Wonder Generation not invited to the 54th Asia Pacific Film Festival?

Unfortunately, whatever happened in a Taekwondo bout in Asian Games did not stay within Guangzhou. Ever since a Taiwanese exponent was disqualified for trying to wear extra scoring sensors in her socks, the anti-Korean wave seems to be carried over to other areas as well.

On November 22nd, Taiwan’s newspaper China Times reported, “The spread of the anti-Korean feeling stems from the Taekwondo issue in the Asian Games. Originally, there were plans to invite Korean singers, including SNSD and Wonder Girls to perform at the 54th Asia Pacific Film Festival which will be held at National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, December 2nd to 4th. However, the idea was later dropped due to the anti-Korean sentiments. Also, there have been boycotts of albums produced by Korean singers as well”.

Restrictions imposed on dramas for 'unethical content'

A total of five dramas have received a warning from the Korea Communications Standards Commission

A general meeting was held on November 24th in order to impose restrictions against six different dramas from public broadcast and cable channels. The programs that received sanctions are MBC’s “Flames of Ambition,” “The Scarlet Letter,” SBS’s “Giant,” “CulTwo Show,” and KNN’s “Chase Scene Siren.”

“Flames of Ambition” received warnings for excessive scenes of violence, a scene with a hit-and-run, and other unethical content such as characters persuading others to rape the protagonist’s sister. The drama features stimulating scenes such as gangsters slapping and kicking Na Young (Shim Eun Kyung), Na Young asking neighborhood teens to rape her sister in order to become the new daughter-in-law of a wealthy family, and Na Young hitting her son’s birth mother with her car and running away.

“The Scarlet Letter” and “Giant” both received warnings for excessive scenes of violence and the broadcast of unethical content, while “Cultwo Show” was warned for vulgar language and the use of informal speech.

South Korea’s Defense Chief Resigns in Wake of Attack

A South Korean Marine officer stood in front of a military facility on Thursday that had been hit by a shell fired by North Korea on Yeonpyeong island.

President Lee Myung-bak accepted the resignation of Defense Minister Kim Tae-young on Thursday amid intense criticism over the South’s response to an artillery attack by North Korea two days earlier and the sinking of a warship in March

“There was a need to revamp the military landscape,” a senior government official said Thursday night. “It was time.”

The government official said Mr. Kim offered his resignation on May 1, after a South Korean Navy vessel, the Cheonan, was sunk off the coast of North Korea in the Yellow Sea. Mr. Lee deferred the resignation and asked Mr. Kim to stay on. It was expected that his replacement would be named on Friday.

Choi Heejin sentenced to 5 years community service for being a "bad person"

A while ago we reported that Choi Heejin, the woman who blackmailed Eru and Tae Jinah, was detained. The court has finally given her a sentence of five years of community service, 14 days a month. The reason given was for defamation of character, and because "she is just a bad person".

Although pretty much every netizen is against her, they were confused at the second part of the reason. Most thought she should be sentenced because of defamation of character and blackmail, not because she was a "bad person". Many think Tae Jinah's power and money had something to do with her sentence, even though they believe she deserves her punishment.

What do you think, is her sentence fair?

Everyone thinks Seungyeon is a little kid

KARA’s Park Gyuri recently confessed her first impressions of fellow member Han Seungyeon back when they were still trainees.

During this week’s recording of ‘Happy Together 3‘, Gyuri revealed, “Since Seungyeon has always had a baby face, I thought she was much younger than she actually was. But when we talked for the first time, she said she was happy to meet me in an informal manner. I thought, ‘Wow, this kid is really arrogant!’ I only found out later that we were the same age, which solved my misunderstanding.

Seungyeon said, “Before my debut, when I went on the bus and gave the bus driver a 1000 Won note, he’d give me change like some elementary school kid.

Goo Hara also added, “When Seungyeon goes driving, because of her baby face, the security guard always asks for her driver’s licence.

This episode is scheduled to broadcast on November 25th on KBS 2TV, alongside guests 2AM and Jun Hyun Mu.
