Silly panda, plastic surgeries are for humans!

Big Bang’s Seungri shared a woeful story of how he failed to get rid of his dark circles.

The February 22nd broadcast of SBS’s “Strong Heart” gathered some of Korea’s story-telling terminators, who all showcased their voluble wit.

As Seungri listened to Kim Dong Wan’s story about a time when SM Entertainment’s chairman, Lee Soo Man, ‘gifted’ him with a nose job, he was inspired to respond with his own plastic surgery tale.

Seungri confessed, “My agency wanted to give me a present, too. Because my dark circles are really severe, we went to a plastic surgeon, but the doctor said we couldn’t fix it.”

He added, “The cause of dark circles lies in the liver, sinus, and eyes – there is a total of three causes, but I have problems in all three areas.” In the end, after he received the diagnosis that his dark circles were incurable, he sadly went back home.

it only takes them one clean and strong shot. This is similar to my personality."

Additional details revealed on Yamapi's performance on “M! Countdown”

Mnet’s “M! Countdown” will host a very special guest this week, as Japanese idol Yamashita Tomohisa will rock their stage for his hit song, “Party Don’t Stop“. Additional details were revealed today, as Mnet’s Park Chan Wook PD promised to deliver an electrifying stage.

The PD stated on February 22nd, “We’re currently working on making his stage give off a club party feel to better suit the style of his song, ‘Party Don’t Stop’. Since it’s his first Korean broadcast appearance, we will do our best to provide a great stage.”

“Party Don’t Stop” boasts a sophisticated, electronic sound that’s ideal for fun club music. Viewers and fans are showing an increasing level of anticipation for his performance, as the song has yet to be performed live, even in Japan.

The PD added, “Both fans and other Korean singers are pleased to be able to stand on stage together with the famous singer and actor on ‘M! Countdown’.”

Meanwhile, the artist is scheduled to release his album in Korea on March 2nd, which will be followed by a two-day concert at the KBS 88 Gymnasium on April 16th and 17th.

KBS wants BIGBANG?????

Big Bang to have “Music Bank” comeback stage if they comply with ‘fairness’ condition
Earlier reports of SBS holding an extravagant one-hour comeback special for Big Bang left many wondering about how the group’s special relationship with SBS would impact their promotions on the other two public broadcast networks, MBC and KBS.

On February 21st, Kim Sang Ho PD of KBS’s “Music Bank” addressed these concerns through Newsen: “We haven’t discussed anything regarding Big Bang’s comeback stage yet. ‘Music Bank’ cannot provide something as extravagant like SBS, but if Big Bang is willing to perform fairly with the other artists, we can provide a stage for them.”

The ‘fairness’ that KBS mentioned was explained to mean that they would be given the standard two-track comeback stage of their contemporaries; the group must be willing to accept that KBS’s stage won’t be as extravagant as the one that SBS is planning.

Infinite may be one of the flurry of pop bands armed with charming looks. But the seven-member boy band says they are different in that their emphasis is on the music rather than visual elements, including their looks.

IU's oppa fans write her a song...

Seoul, Korea — A song of tribute for IU was released.

“The Song For IU,” a touching song by IU’s fans, is heating up the Internet. This song was made by the members of Gathering Of Mid-20s Males Who Want To Meet IU (Aamanjoong) and is rapidly spreading out to various Internet community sites, including IU’s fansite.

This is was written, composed, and arranged by Aamanjoong members Y and P, and is attracting attention with the two members singing and playing the guitar, bass, drums, etc for the song. The guitar solo of the song is homage for Metallica and IU.

The reason this song of tribute is receiving much attention is because of the lyrics full of the love of IU’s fans. The song starts with the lyrics, “IU is greater than you, Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer,” comparing IU to legendary bands.

The song continues, “Don’t need heavy metal, LA metal, death metal, fusion jazz, Charlie Parker, hardcore/ In the past, it was Metallica, now it is IU/ Girls like TVXQ, we like IU/ The trend is IU, in the future, IU/ IU forever, IU is the truth.”

Also they express their feeling for IU with the lyrics, “IU, I love you/ IU, I love you today/ IU, I love you now/ IU, I love you forever,” and also sings, “IU, meet me just once/ IU, don’t be scared/ IU, give me your autograph.”

The song received attention and laughter with a message from member Y, “Don’t misunderstand us for we aren’t this violent. Just in case some might misunderstand us, we recorded the song with a sound mind, wrote the lyrics with a sound mind, and arranged the song with a sound mind.”

Netizens said: “It’s a huge hit. We acknowledge their passion for IU.” “They have to be in their 30s. No way could they be in their 20s.” “Great.” “The song is rough but cool. These guys are awesome.”

SM to start paying for their cockblocks against JYJ

Court order states SM Entertainment will pay 20 million won each time they interfere with JYJ activities

After the Seoul Central District Court dismissed both of SM Entertainment's injunctions against JYJ last week, the judge Kim Daewong has decided to incur a fee against SM Entertainment every time they interfere with JYJ's activities. Through a press release, JYJ's current acting agency said on February 21st, "SM Entertainment will not be allowed to interfere with JYJ activities and will pay 20 million won every time they violate this court order."

The court has decided that there is a possibility that SM Entertainment will interfere with JYJ's activities, and in the case that they do interfere, have made this ruling. To prevent any possibilities of interference, the court has ordered a restraining order against SM Entertainment.

Even though the court has ruled in favor of JYJ, C-JeS Entertainment's Baek Changjoo said, "There are still many obstacles to go over. There are many things still to be worked out even with the court ruling in our favor. I hope the public and fans support our cause and help create a more progressive celebrity system."

Koreaboo and Hankyung

Excited, but really interested/curious about how they would exactly prove how SM was blocking them. But nonetheless, it's nice to see that the courts are doing something that would hurt SM if they keep trying to stop JYJ's activities :D

We are Omona and we have lots of feelings

Things happen, people are kicked out of groups, Big Bang is back, shit gets real, and we feel it all. Sometimes words just aren't enough and since this is the net and breaking into song doesn't really work like we hope (yet) we use gifs. Lots and lots of gifs. There are gifs for things we never knew we wanted to feel or emote but they are there and they are pixelated and they are glorious.

Gifs have started showing up more and more in comments to posts outside of FFAs and at times it has gotten excessive. We should not be seeing spams of gifs in comments on regular posts. Comments using multiple gifs to show the 12 steps of how you have been shaking and crying all week is too much. Please use the same guidelines that are posted for the spam FFAs, one gif per comment, this will help things load best for everyone.
