At the event, Park Jung Min received a scare when a fan wore a scary mask and ran to the signing table. Park Jung Min’s reaction to this was priceless and he jokingly refused to sign the autograph for her. Luckily for us, the whole thing was captured via fan cam, check out the hilarious clip

Rumors have been swirling about the supposed breakup between Hyun Bin and Song Hye Gyo, and for the very first time, Hyun Bin addressed this topic through a press interview on February 10th.

Do I have to make my private life public? The standards seem to be so very different,” he began.

Chinese reports claimed that the two were on the verge of breaking up when Hyun Bin failed to mention Song Hye Gyo at the “SBS Drama Awards” last year.

He continued, “Fans say that they need to know about my private life, and there are also those who claim that I have to tell them. Personally, I do not want to show everyone everything. If I show everyone all I have, what do I have left to show? There’s a lot of rumors going around, but I don’t want to tend to those. Do people want a bad ending, or a good ending?

He concluded, “I don’t know what kind of ending people want, but they’ll find out naturally when the time is right.”

Onew can't stand chicken, Kyuhyun hates Starcraft, Kpop on Italian TV: APOCALYPSE

Even European fans manage to make micro-achievements. Sometimes. 
Shocking, isn't it?

One of Italy's national channels, Rai 3, hosts a news program aimed at teenagers and the like: GT Ragazzi (a pun on "TG" which means "flash news" and "Ragazzi" which stands for "teenagers" in this occasion).
This program offers the audience the chance to propose topics to be shown on TV through their facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/gtragazzi).
Some weeks ago, Italian ELFs and SONEs had began flooding the FB page with suggestions of doing a press report on Super Junior and/or SNSD.
In the end, GT Ragazzi asked the fans to create a video about Kpop as a general trend (but somewhere along the way it translated to "SME and YGE" apparently) and promised to air it.
On the 10th of February, at 3 PM, the program aired.

Collapse )
Summary of what's being said:
They refer to 2NE1 as "flexible little girls" (*le gasp*) and proceed to say how Kpop is gaining thousands of fans in Italy.
Yari from Salerno tells her experience as a fan and explains the basics of Kpop (music genre, boy- and girl-bands...) and the lenghts Italian fans went in order to meet Super Junior in Venice to get photos and help them with train tickets.
(Collapse ))

Yari obviously hadn't a script with her and made some mistakes:.
She says that Kpop is "Pop with characteristics from the places they come from". She probably took S.Korea for the Asian continent in its entirety.
Then states she really likes SHINee and that there are "many other groups". Biased much? Probably just nervous, BUT STILL.
Lastly she reveals she has a whole hard-disk full of CDs. O_O! You shouldn't reveal that on TV! Last I checked it was still illegal. 
I was going to be kinder towards her and just be grateful for this event, but some people on my TList were RAGING.

Overall not really noteworthy and sometimes pointless, but YAY! Kpop in Italy is good.

The entire episode can be watched here (but everything else is regular Italian flash news talk, so it's useless).

Luckily for Italian fans, this time GT Ragazzi managed to get (most of) the facts right.
Here a clip from last year about DBSK.
In plain words: obscenity. 
They had dared to say that "Tee Voo Eex Koo" were inspired by Justin Timberlake and wanted to be like Backstreet Boys
The commenteer just spews huge amounts of bullshit nonsense with a thick Italian accent.

This is from last month but i totally forgot about it. And YES i had to do "the man IN THE CUBE".
Also, considering which countries draws interest in kpop, it would make sense that the next SMTown and shits will take place in Brazilia, France and Italy. What is Taiwan?
What are USA?

IU, even in Japan ‘Good Day’ is popular

The hottest trend in the Korean music industry… #1 choice for Japanese scouts.

She’s receiving ‘love calls’* from famous Japanese record labels.

Singer IU has recently received serious offers from throughout the Japanese record industry.

According to her agency LOEN Entertainment, since January, Japanese production companies and record labels have inquired about IU’s possible advancement into the Japanese market.

In light of the popularity of Korean singers made possible by the likes of SNSD and KARA, scouts from various Japanese agencies have taken much interest in IU since the release of ‘Good Day’ in December when she became known as ‘the pop industry’s hottest trend,’ so much that she is the #1 focus of most Japanese scouts today. Furthermore, she’s sparked even more interest ever since the official Japanese broadcast of the drama ‘Dream High’ through the satellite channel ‘DATV’, which started on Jan. 27th .

A representative from LOEN Entertainment stated, “Since the start of the new year, we’ve received many phone calls and e-mails from Japanese record labels asking whether there is any specific timeline in mind for IU’s entrance into the Japanese market,” and “We’ve received contact from the top record labels in Japan.”

This representative further stated, “Though we’ve always considered advancements into the Japanese market, we don’t want to rush things, as our foremost priority is to maintain a stronghold in the Korean industry,” and “As for any future timelines, we have yet to begin official discussions on this matter.”

Looking at the situation, it seems very possible that IU may debut in Japan as early as the second half of this year. By summertime, ‘Dream High’ is projected to be broadcast on national Japanese broadcast stations, and it seems likely that along with promotions for the drama, IU could also start her promotions as a singer.

Meanwhile, IU will release her 3rd mini-plus album ‘REAL+’ on the 17th. The title track ‘A Story Only I Didn’t Know’ is a ballad written by singer-songwriter Yoon Sang.

*Translator's note: 'Love calls' are offers made by companies for deals/endorsements.

for the first time idc if she'd sing in japanese. japanse + guitar/folk/rock etc sounds better than in pop imo :)


SJM isn't flawless anymore

We previously reported that a prominent CCTV director and producer announced that Super Junior M would be recording in Beijing as part of their comeback, resuming activities in Mandarin-speaking countries. In addition, Taiwanese radio program, Hito Radio, will be playing a new song from their highly-anticipated comeback album on February 14th.

As we have announced that there are 8 members, fans have been wondering who the 2 additional members are. The 2 new members, confirmed by the CCTV Director to be joining Super Junior M, are Eunhyuk and Sungmin.

Are you excited for their comeback album?

S.Korea, France and K-pop are a serious business now.

“We want to spread Korea’s mainstream music outside of Asia into Europe and America. We hope 2010 will be a year where the hallyu wave will spread further.”, said Na Moon Sung of the Korea Creative Content Agency when it was announced that Epik High and f(x) were going to perform at Cannes' Midemback in 2010.

Seems like Mr Na and KCCA's objectives weren't that surrealists. Here's some recap of what we already knew (MIDEM, tv news, ... ) but also unseen stuff here on omonatheydidnt from 2010, and crazy news from January and February 2011.
