Lee Hyori Hurt Korea's Meat Industry by Turning Vegetarian?



Top celebrity Lee Hyori officially turned vegetarian last month and now the Hanwoo Board, or the governing body of Korean beef, is accusing her of hurting the overall Korean meat industry. Hyori served as the goodwill ambassador and official spokesperson for the Hanwoo Board for six months from July to December of last year, but became a vegetarian after her contract expired.

“By officially announcing her decision to turn vegetarian shortly after her contract with us as an ambassador expired, Hyori has hurt the overall Korean beef market that’s already suffering from the bad publicity caused by the recent foot-and-mouth disease in Korea,” an official from the Hanwoo Board said. “She not only encouraged consumers to buy Korean beef and promoted our products before, but also told people at her fan signing event held on ‘Korean Beef Day’ in November to enjoy more Korean beef. But now she’s completely changed her attitude and it has damaged the overall image of Korean beef,” it added.

[NEWS] 110319 - ‘Comeback’ Infinite, “All Preparations Are Finished, Now We Need to Soar”



The group, Infinite, told us their thoughts about the comeback.

Before going on stage for the March 18th episode of KBS2 ‘Music Bank’, Infinite met with Asia Economy: Sports Today. They showed confidence for this album’s promotions by saying, “All preparations are finished. Now all we need to do is soar.”

They also added on, “As we promote with our title song, ‘Nothing’s Over’, we plan to become a bit more relaxed and enjoy the stage more”, and laughed while saying, “We definitely feel that the cute concept fits perfectly with us."

“If ‘BTD’ was a really masculine concept, then the concept for ‘Nothing’s Over’ would be strong in the friendly feel.” They added, “Since it’s similar to what our members are like normally, I think we can freely enjoy it on stage as well."

For their closing words Infinite requested, “Although we are burdened by all the comebacks from prominent seniors, our goal is to get 1st on a music program. Please give a lot of love and interest.”

Meanwhile, their title song, ‘Nothing’s Over’, was written by Han Jaeho and Kim Seungsoo and its features are impressive lyrics, a melody that’s touching but easy to listen to, and a unique sound. Also, the loving and cheerful voices that only Infinite has, maximize the feeling of the song and increase the level of completeness.
