SHINee’s Onew shows off a special talent on ‘100 Points Out of 100′

SHINee’s Onew recently showed off a special talent with his fingers.

Onew was a special guest MC on the February 26th broadcast of KBS2TV’s ‘100 Points Out of 100.’ During one of the segments, comedian Park Myung Soo made a comment in regards to Onew stating, “I was shocked when I recently felt Onew’s finger flicking power.” Simon D also chimed in stating, “I’ve also experienced it and it’s awesome,” complimenting Onew on his finger flicking skills.

Onew was then issued a challenge to crack a walnut with his finger flicking and he successfully shattered the walnut into two pieces.

After this exhibition of finger flicking power, Park Myung Soo started acting nervously. The other guests on the show also tried their hand at cracking the walnut via finger-flicking but failed to do so.

N.Korea Threatens Retaliation Against Psychological Warfare


North Korea has sent a belligerent message to the South regarding psychological warfare.

South Korea’s Defense Ministry said North Korea sent a message via an inter-Korean military hotline on Sunday morning. The message warned that if South Korea’s psychological warfare continued, it would fire aimed shots at relevant South Korean facilities. It was sent under the name of North Korea’s top representative to high-level inter-Korean military talks.

It said the recent sending of anti-North Korea leaflets is a traitorous act that goes against the Korean people, who are attempting to open a new situation with full-scale dialogue and negotiations.

North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency promptly reported on this message on Sunday morning.

SON DONG WOON THANKS B2UTYS IN CONJUNCTION WITH BEAST’S 500 DAY DEBUT




On the 27th of February, Son Dong Woon left a message on Beast’s cafe. “I’m Dongwoon. It’s already the 500th day of Beast. When the number of people who hated us was more than the number of people who liked us, B2UTYS who were even sadder than us filled up our empty stages and feelings. We are very thankful. Thank you for the unchanging love you have shown us, we will repay you with even more love. Thank you very very much.”

When Beast first debuted, they were known as the group where the members had been eliminated from other idol groups. They had gone through long years of training and debuted before but they still failed, earning them the nickname “the recycled group”.

But now Beast has found success. This ‘rediscovered group’ is now one of Korea’s most popular idol groups.

Regarding Son Dongwoon’s sudden post, fans were enthusiastically replying, ” The people who were more hurt than us is definitely Beast..we are very thankful that Beast has now successfully dropped this bad name.” , “We have finally experienced what it means to be a fan. Now no one can speak ill of our oppas anymore. We are sure you know it too. Thank you for always showing us your hardworking side.” , “Good luck for your promotions in Japan! Time flies by so fast, it’s already the 500th day of Beast.” , ” We will never feel hurt you again. Good Luck!! “

Beast held their encore concert Welcome Back To Beast Airline at the Seoul Olympic Stadium on the 18th and 19th of February. They are currently preparing for their promotions in Japan in March.

Happy #500 days b2uties!!!! :'D

Another day, another endorsement for SNSD - Woongjin



The nation's best girl group Girls' Generation will campaign as a water filter model for Woongjin Coway.

Collapse )
A living + eco home appliance company Woongjin Coway(CEO Hong Joon Ki) confirmed on 27th that they signed a contract with Girls' Generation to be their exclusive model until the end of the year.

As the consumer group expanded from 40~50s to 20~30s, as well as housewives to single men and women, the company explains their choosing Girls' Generation to give the impression of 'a young company' as well as showing their status as the nation's number 1 water filter company.

Lee Woo Tae, a director of Woongjin Coway's marketing headquarter said that "Girls' Generation, along with the classy image as the nation's best girl group, has friendly image as well," explaining that "they suit very well with the image of the new product that has concepts that people have never seen before."


Woongjin Coway launched a new product last month that has two extracting filters with different height that allows for people to fill up large water bottles or pots, up to 1L at once. As there are many more new products to be launched, Woongjin Coway is planning on making different commercials for different products corresponding to each of 9 member's unique characteristics.

---------------------------------------------
Wow this endorsement with Woongjin is a big deal in my eyes. Usually these types of endorsements for home appliances such as water purifiers are only reserved for the biggest actors/actresses because they usually target a much older audience. For the girls to be able to get this brand means that they have confidence on our girls' appeal. They're actually getting a lot of endorsements that idols usually don't get which is surprising. Dior & Intel are huge names already. Not only that but this is probably the most well-known company in Korea because 1 in 4 Koreans use their water filtration devices. They're also expanding internationally. Congrats SNSD for picking this one up, great job by SM as well.

S. Korea to return 31 N. Koreans this week

South Korea will this week send back 31 North Korean workers who had drifted across the two countries' tense sea border earlier this month, a report said Sunday.

South Korea was close to completing investigations on the 11 men and 20 women, none of whom had expressed an intention to defect to the South, Yonhap news agency reported, citing a Seoul official.

"Since none of them wish to defect, all 31 of them will be returned home by Panmunjom within this week," said the unnamed official quoted by Yonhap, referring to a heavily-fortified land border village.

Their boat will be returned through the maritime border off the west coast, the official was quoted as saying.

The South's defense ministry declined to comment. A spokesman for the unification ministry handling inter-Korean affairs was unavailable for comment.

The fishing workers arrived off Yeonpyeong island near the Yellow Sea maritime border in thick fog on February 5 and were towed in by the South's navy.

Pyongyang three days later called for their repatriation. The South normally returns North Koreans who drift across the border by accident and who express a wish to return.

The contested Yellow Sea border has been a persistent flashpoint. The North's shelling of Yeonpyeong in November, which killed two marines and two civilians, briefly sparked fears of war.

More than 20,000 North Koreans fleeing their famine-stricken home have arrived in the capitalist South since the end of the 1950-53 war, half of them in the past five years, mostly via China.

Two weeks ago a North Korean man in his 20s defected to the South by crossing the heavily-fortified and mined land border.

JeA and Miryo appear in Maxim Korea



Girl group members of Brown Eyed Girls, Miryo and Jea, and JQT are the latest models for MAXIM Korea in this month's magazine release. Miryo and Jea show off their body figures, while JQT shows off their cute, but sexy side.

With the concept of "The Muses", Jea wears a tight, black leather mini-dress and a black jacket on her shoulders as she poses charismatically sitting on top of giant speakers. Miryo, on the other hand, gives more of a cutesy feeling with her hair tied up and light makeup. Unlike Jea's more sexy outfit, Miryo wears a red, off-shoulder sweater with black-striped gray pants.

Four-member girl group JQT is also featured in this month's magazine. In the released photo, the JQT members are given brighter clothing compared to the Brown Eyed Girls members. All of the JQT members are wearing short-shorts and give off a young and cute aura.

The editor in charge showed his satisfaction towards Brown Eyed Girls' shooting and said, "The atmosphere of the photoshoot was very good."

MAXIM Korea asked Jea and Miryo, "Who is your favorite female vocalist?" to which they answered, "Lee Hyori and Uhm Junghwa. They both build strong images for themselves." When asked which male idol they'd like to collaborate with, Jea answered Big Bang's Taeyang, while Miryo answered, "He's not an idol, but Tiger JK."

J-pop idol Keita Tachibana praises TVXQ’s Changmin via Twitter


Via tokyohive:

J-pop star Keita Tachibana (of w-inds fame) praised TVXQ’s Changmin through Twitter on February 26th for the strong improvement in the Korean idol’s singing ability. The star wrote:

“Though it’s coming from me, Changmin’s high notes are effortless and his voice has become deep and fine. He must’ve practiced a considerable amount this year to produce such a voice. People who notice this clear improvement in [Changmin's] performance will get chills. Conversely, those who continue to sing without further development don’t stir up any feelings [in their listeners].”

Though TVXQ is now comprised of two members, Changmin and Yunho, they’ve been getting more attention than ever, and it sounds like Changmin’s hard work and perseverance are paying off! Keep it up!”

Thanks to Tia for the tip!
