Member Hyosung was seriously injured and was immediately taken to the hospital. The other members are also being treated for minor injuries at the hospital. It is unknown at this point what their exact injuries are.

The police is currently investigating the accident through witnesses.

Cast walks out of Great Seer shoots citing no pay


There’s more trouble afoot in dramaland, with SBS’s historical drama The Great Seer being forced to shut down production on Saturday, December 8, when its cast refused to continue shooting.

The chair of the Korea Broadcast Actors Union issued a statement explaining that the drama, which began airing in October, has failed to pay a penny to its actors in the two months that it has been running. Until the production rectifies the situation, it stated that the actors will not film. Currently the drama has broadcast through Episode 18 of its scheduled 36.

Most of the cast of the show belongs to the union, including Ji Sung, Ji Jin-hee, Lee Yoon-ji, and Song Chang-eui. The union stated that the producers have been beset with serious problems and have ignored the repeated requests for payment, being too preoccupied with keeping itself afloat. The issue had also been raised with SBS, and the union had stated their stance on walking out last month, and threatened to boycott all outside productions in the future, given the constant recurrence of these issues in drama after drama (Faith was another recent example).

A rep with SBS stated that the three parties — outside production company, SBS, and the union — are engaged in deep negotiations and that this issue won’t affect its broadcast schedule.

Of course, they would say that, since nobody wants to entertain the idea of having no material to broadcast when Wednesday night rolls around. It’s looking very tight for the production, since they will have to scramble to make their December 12 and 13 episodes.

B1A4 1st concert!! Much spazzing was to be had!

B1A4, the definition of an evolved Idol

Now, idols who are busy lip syncing to the songs composed for them by another musicians and dancing to their choreography don’t exist. Passionately singing and ad-libbing to their self composed songs and great rapping skill. They even calmly handle unexpected situations and warmly hugged their fans. It was B1A4 who showed the definition of an evolved idol group.
On 8th this month at the Seoul Olympic SK Handball Stadium, group B1A4 (Jinyoung, Baro, Sandeul, CNU, Gongchan)’s first exclusive concert “BABA B1A4” was held. Total of 11,000 tickets were sold out for their 2 day concert from 8th to 9th and proved the super rookie B1A4’s influence.
B1A4 performed “Tried to Walk”, “Beautiful Target”, “Sleep well, good night”, “Baby I’m Sorry”, including their unreleased tracks “I’m burning” and “”Would you like to sing together?” and more, selecting 24 tracks in total and created a splendid 180 minute stage. B1A4 who opened their exclusive concert after debuting for about 500 days started off the show with group stages completed by their teamwork and arranged solo stage moments to show off their own different charms.

The concert really was excellent. WM Entertainment continues to be really smart in how they handle B1A4: the venue was small but decent to hold the 5000+ people, costumes and sets were minimal but not bad at all. Their profit margin had to be pretty good--and they could have made more on merchandise, which was desperately understocked. Both times the line had at least a thousand people; I came on the second day two hours before they opened sales, was several hundred people back in line. They sold out of hoodies in 10 minutes. There was also remarkably little gaffes for a first concert, audio and everything was great. Some organizational problems at the beginning, but that's Korea for you. It was a great show, and I would gladly go again! If you have questions, feel free to ask. ^^

....Then I met Dan. He was like many of the other Korean kids who had moved around the world their entire lives -- Switzerland, Canada, Hong Kong. But in a school where I threw myself into the role of the weird theater-creative writer guy, I saw him as different. Scrawny and zit-faced, obsessed with the character “Armand” from Anne Rice novels, Dan wrote clever short stories about rebel youth who cheated the system, sometimes caught sometimes not. These stories resembled his own constant run-ins with school authorities. Among fellow juniors, Dan was the court jester whose constant stream of wisecracks often made him the center of attention. I can still remember his laughter careening like shotgun blasts from the back of the school bus where I sat alone, sometimes next to his shy cousin Sam. With me, though, Dan was deferential. He dutifully fulfilled his role as my apprentice, acceding to my re-imagining of our school’s literary magazine Kaleidoscope. I appreciated Dan. I felt like he was the closest thing to a kindred spirit in a school, in a country where I didn't feel like kindred. I saw him as my protégé.  At the same time, I was a little jealous of him -- the ease in which he switched between English and Korean, the ease in which he laughed with the foreigner kids and the Korean kids. And then I found out that he wrote a song SaveFrom.net for some Korean rock singer named Kim Gun Mo who, as it turns out, is famous. I knew Dan was a good writer, but I didn’t think he was that good. It was like Dan had a foot in the black limo that I could only gaze at, without comprehension.
