Yoseob in Gwanghamoon Sonata: article & fancams

The first time Yang Yoseob entered Sejong Cultural Center was to watch his ex-agency Mboat's sunbaenim Yoon Hyungryul acting in <Notre Dame in Paris> as Quassimodo. Even though he was in awe with his hyung filling up the stage with totally different appearace, he had no thought of doing what his hyung was doing. He just thought he would try singing the songs because there were so many good songs in the musical. He was a boy who only knew singing, but after only a few years, he stood on the stage as a musical actor.

[Viewpoint] Korea’s coming tsunami

As we witness the multiple calamities that beset Japan, we need to be aware that another kind of tsunami will eventually hit South Korea. But, unlike Japan, South Korea is woefully unprepared. The tsunami I’m referring to is a man-made one, coming from the north. No one knows the future of North Korea but few observers believe that the present government and order will last forever. With our neighbor’s demise, we must expect an onslaught of refugees.

Everyone's favorite variety show recieves backlash for cheating

SBS’s “Running Man“ is currently receiving some backlash from the public for using unfair ways to win a dinner game.

On March 27th, Jung Yonghwa and Daesung appeared as guests for the show and experienced going on a camping trip. In order to make dinner, the “Running Man” members were divided into two teams. Each team were given a mission to make separate dishes for dinner, with the best-tasting dish being declared as the winner. As such, two representatives from each team went to the local convenience store and bought ingredients for the challenge.

‘Team Blue’ chose Yoo Jae Suk and Daesung as their representatives, while ‘Team Red’ chose Kim Jong Gook and Song Ji Hyo. Hilariously, the ‘dumb and dumber’ pair were scolded by the blue team for not buying any seasoning, such as salt and pepper for the dish. In the end, Yoo Jae Suk decided that all could be saved by putting powdered ramen soup into the dish as its seasoning. This was a common ‘technique’ used in ‘Family Outing‘ every time a dish did not taste good.

After receiving praise from unaware team members for creating such as delicious tasting soup, Yoo Jae Suk sent a video message to Yoon Jong Shin, who first came up with this idea: “Jong Shin hyung, are you watching? Today you should try putting this in as well. It is really good. Today it is especially good.”

Although the segment was hilarious, viewers nevertheless showed a negative response as they said, “The team went against rules. The PD specifically stated, ‘You can’t put soup in,’ and the rule was even visible as subtitles but during the game Yoo Jae Suk’s team put soup in and still won.”

Furthermore, viewers also commented on the message boards, “Winning after going against the rules…” “I do not think I could view this with the kids. Is this a kind of show where they teach kids that cheaters win in the end?” and “Today’s episode was fun but I just did not understand the soup part.”

Jay Park and "hoardes of screaming fans" put on pants together

Jay Park recently led a dENiZEN-organized flash mob event in support of dENiZEN’s new jeans. A thousand people showed up for this event, which was held in a mall. After warming up the crowd with a short b-boy routine, Jay Park and his team of dancers began to perform the ‘dd dance’ with perfect synchornization.

Then, hordes of excited, screaming fans joined in to create a huge flash mob. Interestingly enough, the Jay facemasks that were distributed to fans created a Jabbawockeez-esque effect (although old Korean b-boy crews also wore facemasks).

If you’ve never seen Jay fanboys gettin’ funky (or Jay’s ahjumma fans for that matter), you’ll definitely need to see this video!

YG trolls for BigBang or 2ne1?

 Image and video hosting by TinyPic
YG Entertainment has just unveiled a mysterious image on their official ‘YG-Life‘ blog.

Speculations are running rampant over the context of the message which was unveiled on the night of March 26th, which reads “I Hate This Love Song !“.

Considering how YGE is preparing for both 2NE1’s comeback and Big Bang’s 4.5 re-packaged album in April, we’re guessing that the two different colors in the message are hints at the two title tracks from the groups.
