Singer and former audition program contestant accused of assaulting high school students

20121011_a

Audition program contestant and singer, who is being referred to as ‘A‘ (30), was recently booked without detention for assaulting a group of high school students.

On October 11th, the Chungnam Police received a report from a high school student B (17) who claimed that he and his friend had been assaulted outside of a convenience store at around 2 a.m. KST on September 18th. ‘A’ had allegedly punched him multiple times in the face.

Regarding the claim, ‘A’ explained that he had been in Chungju with four of his seniors who had all been walking on the streets after having drinks when they came across the students. A fight broke out between the two parties when their paths crossed. According to ‘A’, “The road was narrow and the students passed through us, bumping our shoulders. They kept going without apologizing so I assaulted them out of anger.”

‘A’ claimed that he had not been drinking at the time. Because the students weren’t seriously injured, they booked ‘A’ without detention.
‘A’ previously appeared on an audition program in 2010 and contracted with an agency last year before releasing a debut single.

Psy to start European promotions in November?

121010_PSY

Psy could be actively promoting in Europe next month.

Psy is set to appear on ‘X Factor Australia‘ as a special guest on the 15th, and then he has plans to move onto Europe in November. He had previously said, “I promoted for 3 weeks in America, but there are lots of places for me to go. Scooter Braun wants to focus on America, but Universal Republic Records wants to go into Europe and the Oceania region, so we are in talks on what the next course of action will be.”

YG Entertainment doesn’t have any concrete details on Psy’s European promotions, but there is a high possibility that he will promote in England and Germany. Psy’s “Gangnam Style“ video has already been nominated for the ‘2012 MTV EMA‘ that will be held in Frankfurt, Germany, and Psy has already ranked #1 on England’s charts.

He has also ranked #1 on iTunes chart in the Netherlands, Finland, Denmark, and Belgium as well, so there’s a possibility that Psy will also promote in those European countries.

yay another blind items post~

Found another blind items series run by Sports Seoul this time. These are from June~September. I don't know how interested you guys are in anonymous actors so I left them out and picked out the idols.

1. Rumors have been spreading of a popular idol group member 'A' getting a vasectomy and has become quite the hot topic among insiders. According to some insiders, A is involved with a lot of women and got the surgery done to enjoy a healthier dating lifestyle. Although it's just a rumor, many think that it's quite possible because of how much A loves being with women. He's even recently been being threatened by one woman who claims to have given birth to his child.

2. Girl group member 'A', who's known for her angelic smile on TV, is actually known among insiders for using her strength to control other members in her group. On music and variety shows, she always shows a cute and bright personality and looks as if she gets along with her members well. Thus, she's often chosen as a girl group member with the cleanest image. According to a few insiders, however, A has a tendency to use her power as a weapon to her other members so she can play the role of 'queen'. Some insiders commented, "She looks like such a nice and innocent young girl so it's hard for me to believe that it's true. I can only hope that it's not true."
