Could Sunye Be Miss A Member #5?

As many people know, JYP Nation held a concert on December 24th, though I could have done with more JYP artists, and less JYP. One of the most mind-bending things I remember hearing about Miss A upon their debut, was that Lim used to be a member.

Well, for the JYP concert Miss A and sister group Wonder Girls mixed and matched hit songs, including Miss A’s latest hit ‘Breathe.” Judging from this fancam, Wonder Girl leader Sunye appears to fit with the group like a glove.

Not to be outdone, video surfaced of Sohee doing her own rendition of ‘Breathe’, which became the #2 most searched item at Daum. Ahh, it’s like 2008 all over again…

BoA's long awaited cameo in Athena finally airs next week

We reported back in September that Asia’s pop princess, BoA, would be making a special guest appearance on an episode of “Athena: Goddess of War“. After the reveal of some stillcuts, fans of both the series and the star became highly anticipative of this collision of worlds.

Well the wait is almost over, as a preview of BoA’s cameo on “Athena” has finally been unveiled!

On December 29th, BoA tweeted, “Next week, on Athena’s 7th and 8th episode, BoA will be starring as ‘BoA’. To act out as ‘BoA’ was a bit awkward. It seems like it was only yesterday that I wondered when the episode would be broadcasted after I finished shooting the scenes. Now it’s only a week away! It is, after all, a guest appearance so even if I’m lacking, please enjoy watching it.

To recap, BoA plays the role of a pop icon who is targeted by terrorists to be a hostage. Actor Jung Woo Sung will play as her bodyguard.

It looks like SBS has pulled out all the stops for ”Athena”, as the drama boasts an impressive list of cameos from other A-list stars, including Choo Seung Hoon and Kim Seung Woo.

'Daesang' SNSD "We want to have a world tour next year"

There is nobody that dares to block the way of 'national girl group' SNSD. Following the previous year, SNSD has once again taken 'This Year's Star Daesang'. They also took 'This Year's Artist Award'.

This past year, SNSD released one hit after another starting with 'Oh!', onto 'Run Devil Run' and 'Hoot'. They also made their Hallyu advancement with their debut in Japan back in August.

On the 25th, they looked like they could not believe it when they were informed of winning the awards. Although they have grown into great stars that have taken over Asia, they were shy, cute girls off stage. We heard the thoughts of the '9 girls' who had an impressive year.

IU may have earned over 4 million dollars in 2010

From ‘Marshmallow‘ and ‘Nagging‘ to “Good Day‘, IU has quickly become a star in the Korean entertainment industry. These days, if you turn on the TV, IU is on, and if you walk the streets, you can hear ‘Good Day’ playing in the background.

So all this popularity begs the question, just how much money has 2010’s hottest celebrity raked in?

IU is said to have earned about 300 million won (approx. $261,600) in 2010 from her duet with 2AM’s Seulong, ‘Nagging’, another duet with Sung Si Kyung, ‘It’s You‘, and her 3rd mini album, ‘Real‘.

Of course, you can’t forget the biggest money maker, CFs. IU filmed seven CFs this year for companies ranging from Crown Bakery to the clothing brand YS’B. IU has received an average of 200 million won ($174,400) per year for her work, but recently, due to her popularity, her value has skyrocketed. Representatives are now estimating that she earns a staggering total of at least 1.4 billion won ($1.22 million). On top of this, IU has many more upcoming CFs. Starting on January 3rd of 2011, IU will be filming CFs for electronics, drinks, clothing, cosmetics, and more.

Then, if you add up her pay from her SBS’s ‘Heroes‘ variety show appearances and other events, it all comes out to another 500 million won ($436,000).

Ultimately, the lowest estimate of what IU made in 2010 is 5 billion won, which is approximately equal to $4.36 million dollars.

A representative of IU carefully stated, “We will know the exact revenue from records and CFs early next year. It is true that she earned a lot with her busy activities, but we cannot say how much she has earned for now.”

Hopefully her contract allows her to keep a good percentage of that worth, because she was certainly a huge moneymaker in 2010!

miss A’s Suzy & Kim Soo Hyun share a shy kiss on “Dream High”

miss A’s Suzy attempted her first kiss scene recently for KBS’s upcoming drama, “Dream High“!

The scene in the still-cut revealed today features Suzy (who plays the role of ‘Hyemi’) confessing her feelings to her naive country-boy crush, Kim Soo Hyun (who plays ‘Samdong’).

She then asks him to later enter ‘Girin Arts High School’ with her. In their last farewell, the two characters share a shy kiss before Hyemi leaves by bus.

Producers introduced the kiss scene to act as a teaser for their fate in the future; ‘Samdong’ is expected to be putting aside his country life and single mother in order to go find Hyemi in Seoul.

Regarding the kiss scene, Suzy later revealed, “The scene wasn’t in the actual script and was an on-the-spot addition by the director. I was surprised at first, but we fortunately got an ‘OK’ on the first try.”

2NE1's plans for 2011 from YG-LIFE !

Actually, the official plans for 2NE1 to debut in Japan were aimed at the end of last year however,
However the reason for putting off their debut in Japan at the time was that they were still a rookie group who has not been around for very long
And we thought that they should immerse themselves a bit more in Korean activities.

2NE1, who has just finished their first full-length album activities in Korea, is scheduled to make an official debut in Japan starting in February of next year.
The record company that 2NE1 will be working with is, as many expected, "Avex".

The top owner of "AVEX", with much affection for 2NE1, will be working with them personally, and as a result, YG
is very excited about 2NE1's debut and activities in Japan.

2NE1's first Japan promotions will be two months running from February to March
And during that period of time YG will work our hardest such that
2NE1 will be able to put out a new album in Korea by May~June.

In terms of 2NE1's American promotions, there has been no set schedule yet.
This is because "Will.I.Am" had just released a new album for Black Eyed Peas and as a result was extremely busy.

There was one incident one day on Yeonpyeong Island, where "Will.I.Am" had asked on the phone "Is 2NE1 okay?". While in the US, he said that he himself, after watching 2NE1TV became more of a fan, and that sooner or later he would be making more new songs for 2NE1.

There is so many things that I have to say but, for the sake of next time, I shall end it here.

YG Life + GEE@YGLadies

Hell Yeah! I'm excited

in this post: ferocity, perfection and derp

Have some JYP Nation + Gain scans! Hopefully some of these are new...

I have some close-up fancams from the 12/26 2AM show as well, but my internet connection is barely functional, so I can't upload them right now (is anybody still interested? it's part of the girl group medley, part of Bang, part of Changmin's and Kwon's solo stages, and all of the "history" video)

This is, of course, an image heavy post!

actor!Yong confirmed to return early next year

It is expected that CN Blue Jung Yong Hwa will return to acting.

Jung Yong Hwa has actually debuted as an actor through the SBS drama series You’re Beautiful, aired in 2009, before debuting as a singer. Since then, after he had become a member of CN Blue, he has focused on singing. CN Blue is currently preparing to release a new [korean] album next February.
However, CN Blue’s agency is “worried about the many requests for casting that are pouring down on him
” and confessed that “it’s inevitable for him to fall into a dilemma since most of the drama series that were proposed have an exciting, well-devised plot and famous screenwriters and actors.”

CN Blue’s agency also mentioned that other members of CN Blue, Kang Min Hyuk, Lee Jung Shin, and Lee Jong Hyun, have also been receiving proposals for casting. Kang Min Hyuk is currently giving an energetic performance in SBS’s Monday-Tuesday drama series It’s okay, Daddy’s Girl.

After leaving a strong impression through the drama series You’re Beautiful, Jung Yong Hwa has been rejecting all proposals and working on the new album, but now, he has a desire to take the good opportunities that were given to him.

An affiliate of FNC Music, CN Blue’s management company, said that “since some of the drama series proposed were well-devised and attractive, all CN blue members and the management company have a desire to take the proposal and that “people will be able to see actor Jung Yong Hwa during the first half of 2011.”

omg does this mean their comeback is delayed????

OmonaTheyDidn't 2010 Rewind & Review FFA

Omo omo omo! Where does the time go? It's been one more dazzling year at Omona. That means one more year of cray cray netizen drama, cross dressing lads, comebacks, drug busts, debuts, flops, lawsuits, car accidents, plastic surgery confessions (that were kinda obv anyways so no1curr), political news and healthy dash of wtf/lol/fail for good measure. Omona is pretty much a ride or die kinda gal.

Before we butt dance our way into 2011, lets reflect fondly upon all of your most memorable moments of 2010.

YES, THAT MEANS SPAM LINKS AND DISCUSS! It's a group activity. So make use of the tags to the left :D

But it's not just all about the news, it's also about the entity that is Omona. So bring on the obligatory comments about how criticism against (His Royal Badness) PRINCE can get your ass banished from Neverland faster than you can say Tink. Sparkle text confusion. Never forget your fave comment threads, members, or oblig burn book dramz. Or the trauma of Hangeng being deported to aiyatheydidnt, KEKE!

Like sands through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives. It's a rollahcoastah!

controversy over infinite's violent mv

Infinite’s ‘BTD’ (Before the Dawn) teaser video is being swept up in violence controversies.

The teaser for Infinite’s 2nd mini album’s title song, “BTD”, which was released on the 30th, is the work of Hwang SooAh, director who made IU’s “Good Day” and Brown Eyed Girls’ “Abracadabra”.

In the video, Infinite members showed a fight that would happen in real life. They are receiving reviews that this scene is like a blockbuster, but at the same time they are receiving critiques on how they beautified violence.

To this, their entertainment responded, “At the time we release the full version, all controversies will end. Take note of the strong storyline.”

On the other hand, Infinite will have a showcase on January 6th with their comeback up ahead.
