SBS’ ‘You & I’ to come to an end after 8 months



SBS‘ midnight music program ‘You & I‘ will be coming to an end after eight months of broadcast.

A representative of Lee Hyori confirmed the news on the 10th: “The final recording took place on the 9th. It’s true that the program is coming to a close. Due to various reasons, [the show has been canceled].”

‘You & I’ launched in February of 2012 and attracted many viewers initially due its hosts, top star Lee Hyori and her close friend Jung Jae Hyung. However, the program was unable to bring in steady viewer ratings as it aired at midnight on Sundays.

The final episode of ‘You & I’ will air on the 14th with guests K.Will, Shin Chi Rim (Yoon Jong Shin, Harim, and Jo Jung Chi), and indie band Mongoose.

Lee Hyori will now be focusing on her new album, which is scheduled for release early next year.

I'll believe she's releasing that album when it comes out and not a moment earlier. Son Dam Bi's comeback has been postponed as well :(

KEY WATCHES DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. JONGHYUN'S STILL MINHO'S #1 FAN

Overflowing with fresh charisma - their first original Japanese tune is out!


'Dazzling Girl' is your first original Japanese single release.
Jonghyun: This time, it's not just the music that's from Japan, but our clothing, music video staff, and make-up artists as well, so it feels as though we're working in a totally new environment. We have gotten a lot of good experience from it. We hope to try it once more if given the opportunity again.

(laughs) Lastly, do you have any messages for the Japanese fans who listen to 'Dazzling Girl'?
Taemin: We hope that everyone will love 'Dazzling Girl' more as the date approaches. We will do our best to bring our great music to everyone, so please support the growing SHINee. We look forward to meeting everyone at our next live!

ChAOS on KPOPULOUS


allkpopTV

the most interesting part of the interview was that originally they were going to debut as a ballad group but one day their CEO heard them singing an upbeat song and he thought they sounded great so he decided they should be a dance group. apparently they had a hard time learning how to dance and sing at the same time (considering this is the same CEO in charge of the Piggy Dolls...yeah, I don't know if he should really be in charge of this company? or anything?)

BLIND ITEMS POST! 2011 X-Files

These are X-Files from 2011. Keep in mind that a rumor is a rumor. None of this is verified. The names to some of these are all over Naver.

1. Idol member 'A' has recently become addicted to sex salons. The industry didn't know it was coming because he's quite the popular figure among teens for his girlish looks and pretty smile. He's actually the sex fiend to the point of begging the girls at the salons to be his partner.

Big Bang’s T.O.P Thought Kim Yoo Jung was a Gangster

46553438

As adorable as she is, Kim Yoo Jung revealed that people misunderstand her sharp glances for something else, including Big Bang’s T.O.P.

Kim Yoo Jung appeared on October 9’s broadcast of SBS’ Strong Heart, where she talked about meeting T.O.P for the filming of their movie The Alumni.
Being a Big Bang fan, Kim Yoo Jung couldn’t hide her excitement and later shock upon meeting T.O.P on the set.
On the day of the filming when I first met him, the director told us to get close and made us talk to each other while holding hands. T.O.P oppa told me that he searched me on the internet and then suddenly asked if I was the school’s best fighter.’

She explained that when T.O.P searched her on the internet, the related words that followed her name were, ‘School Fighter.’

I’m not the school’s best fighter,” explained Kim Yoo Jung. “I think the misunderstanding was made because when I glance at something, it appears as if I’m glaring.

She added, “There are other rumors that say that when I give signatures, I charge 100~500 won.”

Although she felt frustrated by the false rumors, Kim Yoo Jung said that reading rumors about herself was actually kind of entertaining.

Allow OP to explain why this is SUCH A BAD IDEA.
Nov 2th - MuBank in Chile

Nov 14th - Big Bang in Peru
Meaning fans here are broke as hell. I wonder why U-KISS' management rushed the dates so much. I really hope they get good sales at both concert. Though I'm indifferent towards the boys, I don't want to see them flop :-(

The National Para Games apologizes to JYJ’s Junsu and his fans

20121009_junsu_jyj-600x375

The National Para Games Group has posted an apology on their website to apologize to JYJ‘s Junsu and his fans.

On October 8th, Junsu was set to perform as the finale stage at the opening of the 32nd National Para Games – Gyeonggi Province. However, many fans had problems with Junsu’s final stage, starting from the lighting of the stage up to the way his stage was left out of the broadcast. It is said the cameras were packed up before Junsu appeared on stage and thus, Junsu’s portion took place after the filming had wrapped up. To answer the fans’ rising anger, presumably, the chief officer of the National Para Games uploaded the following apology and tried to clear up some of the misunderstandings.

Appeal by 8 Members of Tajinyo Rejected and Declared Guilty Ending Tablo′s Controversy

tumblr_ma9x95b0vp1qzjb8ko1_400
At long last, it seems the drawn-out saga behind Tajinyo and Epik High’s Tablo has come to an end.

On October 10, the Seoul Central District Court held a verdict hearing regarding eight members of ‘Tajinyo’ for circulating rumors that Tablo had faked his educational background and credentials.

In the hearing, Chief Judge, Park Kwang Keun dismissed the appeal of a Mr. Song and seven others who had initially been found guilty in their first trial. A Ms. Park from among the ‘Tajinyo’ members seeking an appeal of the initial ruling due to her young age and skin condition was the only one to find her sentence partially reduced . She will instead be placed on two years probation with the possibility of a ten months, and maximum two years imprisonment, should she commit another crime during her probation period and be required to carry out 200 hours of community service.

Well, this didn't take a long! KBS manages to piss off YG again



YG Disappointed in KBS Review Standards for G-Dragon

YG Entertainment‘s CEO Yang Hyun Suk expressed disappointment in KBS’s review boards decision to censor G-Dragon’s songs “Light It Up” and “That XX.” He stated, “Due to KBS’s review standards, G-Dragon could not perform ‘Light It Up’ and ‘That XX’ on ‘Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook‘ as he had planned originally. G-Dragon is also very disappointed.”

G-Dragon originally planned to perform “Crayon,” “Light It Up,” and “That XX.” He changed problematic lyrics and applied for confirmation to KBS, but the songs were not approved until the day before filming. In the end, he replaced “Light It Up” and “That XX” with “One of A Kind” and “Missing You.”

Yang Hyun Suk added, “The review standards are very particular. G-Dragon did a lot to perform these songs for his fans. We are sorry that he didn’t get to do it.” Meanwhile, “Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” had an unprecedentedly high competition rate of 75:1 in admission ticket application, proving G-Dragon’s extreme popularity.

G-Dragon performed “Missing You” with 2NE1‘s Minzy. Minzy reinterpreted Kim Yoon Ah‘s part in the original version of the song, presenting a new and refreshing stage. Furthermore, G-Dragon added live band music to “Crayon” and brought the house down with “One of A Kind” and its heavy hip hop sound. 

“Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook” featuring G-Dragon will be airing on October 19.
