Everyone loves flawless Yoona



Composer Kim Eana wrote a personal fan account of her experience at the “2010 Melon Music Awards” on her Twitter.

The composer won the ‘Song Writer Award’ at the ceremony held on December 15th, and she’s the writer behind popular tracks such as Kim Gun Mo’s “Cry,” Ga-In’s “Irreversible,” and IU’s “Good Day” and “Nagging.”

On the 17th, she wrote, “Here’s one account of the ‘Melon Music Awards’… Every time SNSD passed by in front of me, the pathway seemed to part and light was shed from the sky. Some called it Heaven. Setting my personal preferences aside, Yoona’s face was like good fortune, forcing me to avoid mirrors after I saw her face in real life.”

SeoHyun Freaks Out at Lee JongHyun’s “Revealing” Fact



On We got Married aired on 18th, as part of the mission Yonghwa recommended going over to CNBlue’s dorm.

Before going, Yonghwa phoned Jonghyun to ask what he was doing. Jonghyun didn’t know Yonghwa had his phone on speaker phone, and he answered, “Just in underwear on the bed relaxing” which freaked Seohyun out.

Yonghwa added, “It’s on speakerphone so Seohyun can hear you and she’s freaking out.”

At this Jonghyun panicked and repeated “She can hear? She can hear?”. However, Jonghyun seemed to be enjoying freaking Seohyun out and added “Minhyuk is also in his underwear.”

At this Seohyun seemed to be shocked and said “I’m not going to your dorm” which caused laughter.

Park Jin Young aka ~DA MAN~ reveals why he adds ‘JYP’ in his songs



While making an appearance on KBS 2TV’s “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook“, singer and producer Park Jin Young revealed the reason behind adding his ‘JYP‘ intro for the songs he produces.

On the December 17th episode, MC Yoo Hee Yeol asked him, “Why do you always put in ‘JYP’ in the beginning of all of your songs?

Park Jin Young answered, “The public gives a lot more attention when I add in ‘JYP’ for a rookie singer’s songs. I don’t add it around their 3rd or 4th album. Putting the JYP brand up front makes the rookie shine a little bit more.”

When further asked about his most favorite song out of all the songs he produced this year, Park Jin Young replied, “It’s ‘Bad Girl Good Girl.’ I like it so much, I want to perform it at my year-end, but after I change the title to ‘Bad Boy Good Boy.”

He continued, “I first came up with the idea for the song when I was reminded of my old friend, who was a dance major at an arts high school. Although she was rebellious on the outside, she was innocent and caring on the inside.

China fishing boat capsizes in scuffle; 1 dead

A Chinese fishing boat capsized in a maritime scuffle with a South Korean coast guard ship trying to curb its illegal fishing activities Saturday, killing one fisherman and leaving two others missing, South Korea's coast guard said.

About 50 Chinese fishing boats were illegally fishing in western South Korean waters off Gunsan city, about 170 miles (270 kilometers) south of Seoul, when the South Korean ship approached them, coast guard spokesman Ji Kwan-tae said. One of the boats intentionally hit the larger coast guard ship to allow fellow Chinese vessels to sail back to their waters, and then capsized, he said.

Eight people from the capsized boat were plucked from the sea, but one was unconscious and later died at a Gunsan hospital, the coast guard said in a statement. Coast guard boats and helicopters were dispatched to the area to locate the two missing Chinese sailors, it said.

Coast guard officers fought with fishermen on other Chinese boats who wielded steel pipes, shovels and clubs, and four of the officers suffered fractured arms and other injuries, the statement said. None of the injuries were life-threatening, Ji said.

Chinese fishing fleets have been going farther afield to feed growing domestic demand. A collision between a Chinese fishing boat and Japanese coast guard vessels in September led to a nasty diplomatic spat between the two countries over disputed islands in the East China Sea. The incident soured what had been improving relations between China and Japan.

More than 300 Chinese fishing boats are captured for fishing illegally in South Korean waters every year, according to South Korea's coast guard. In 2008, one South Korean coast guard officer was killed and six others injured in a maritime scuffle with Chinese fishermen fishing in South Korean waters.

A senior South Korean Foreign Ministry official expressed regret over the death of the Chinese fisherman in a phone call to the Chinese consul general in Seoul, Yonhap news agency reported. Calls to the South Korean Foreign Ministry went unanswered.

A man answering the phone at the China Maritime Search and Rescue Center in Beijing confirmed that a Chinese fishing boat capsized Saturday in the Yellow Sea and two Chinese fishermen were missing. But another man at the center — reached by phone an hour later — said nine fishermen had been rescued and only one was missing. South Korea's coast guard couldn't immediately explain the discrepancy in the number of missing fishermen.

Both men — who didn't give their names, as is common with Chinese officials — said China dispatched a rescue boat to the area.

Calls to the Chinese Embassy in Seoul went unanswered.

Preview: 'The Kimchi Chronicles'- Hollywood stars to promote 'hansik'

By Ines Min

In a time when Korea is making headlines due to tensions with its northern partner and most Westerners ask natives timidly “From the North or South?” one Korean-American pioneer seeks to finally find success in the long-embattled fight to get the word out and distinguish South Korea — via “hansik,” or Korean food.

“Kimchi Chronicles” has entered its final production stages, producers announced Friday at a press conference in central Seoul. Following the conclusion of a three-day shoot with Hollywood actress Heather Graham (“Austin Powers”), reporters were shown a short promotional clip of the upcoming show — which begins airing early next year on the acclaimed U.S. public network PBS.

YG’s Yang Hyun Suk wants G-Dragon and T.O.P to have girlfriends



Big Bang’s G-Dragon and T.O.P were recently interviewed for KBS 2TV’s ‘Entertainment Relay‘.

While on the topic of their upcoming new album, the boys expressed, “This is a project album that we wanted to release first for the fans who are tired of waiting for Big Bang’s album. It would be good if they thought of it as a Christmas present.”

When asked about the positives about promoting as a unit group, G-Dragon explained, “We can drink alcohol comfortably. Before, we were uncomfortable about drinking around the other members, because apart from T.O.P and I, the other members don’t drink.”

The duo also affirmatively said “No” when the reporter asked if they had any girlfriends. Slyly, the reported persisted, “Are you sure that’s not an answer with your boss in mind?”. Yet both T.O.P and G-Dragon answered, “Our boss would actually rather see us living a stable life with a stable girlfriend.”

The long-legged brothers are still the Gods of kpop



Despite much controversy surrounding their comeback, TVXQ is once again impressing those around them – as number one on the pre-orders chart, the boys are showing that they are virtually unstoppable!

Though the boys are not scheduled to come back until January 26, pre-orders are pouring in at every major CD shop in South Korea, making them first on charts. After being away from the music world for several months, it’s really quite remarkable to see how well TVXQ is doing already – not to mention reflective of how influential they truly are.

In addition, JYJ is faring quite well also, as pre-orders for their new single is ranked number one on several large online shopping sites such as Amazon Japan, Tower Records, and CD carrier HMV Online.

Despite the fact that many fans are still upset over the fact that the five boys are working separately instead of as one group, it seems that they are all faring quite well under the given conditions.

SHINee’s Onew is thankful towards T-ara’s Boram for liking him

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

SHINee’s Onew expressed his thankful feelings towards T-ara’s Boram on an episode of KBS 2TV’s “Nocturnal.”

The episode focused the members of the “Nocturnal” team helping to draw a mural on a dirty wall of an elementary school, and T-ara and IU made surprise visits as guests and joined the team to help out.

The MCs were more than happy with the extra help and provided them with snacks such as ddukboki (hot rice cakes) and fish cakes.

During the meal, Shin Dong Yeob and Yoon Jong Shin suggested Onew feed the snacks to the female celebrity (that was present) he has the most interest in. Without hesitation, Onew declared that he “had a person he’s always wanted to give to,” surprising the MCs.

The target of his affections turned out to be Boram, leading to a ‘rose colored’ atmosphere as Boram shyed away while the T-ara members revealed, “Boram has always been a hardcore fan of Onew.”

Onew answered, “I already knew that she was my fan through reading articles. I’ve always wanted to thank her for saying that she likes me.

The episode will broadcast on December 19th at 11:15 PM.
