Spectacular shots of Big Bang at Wembley Arena + 1 Omona Exclusive

About a month ago a lovely professional photographer offered to get some exclusive Big Bang @ Wembley Arena shots for all of us! Pretty cool, right? OmonaTheyDidn't! also applied for a press pass so we could ask questions and stuff, but no one ever got back to us *tear* However, it was not a big deal because this photographer was working with The Line of Best Fit and they had no problem with her giving us some extra shots. Sadly the photo policy was very strict and because of a mistake she was only able to shoot for one song, from the back of the venue, behind the fans. She was lucky to get 10 good shots for that website & an extra for us.

Psy on Why President Obama Stopped Doing 'Gangnam Style'

tumblr_mfbavgJFso1qzjb8ko4_1280

How does it feel to become an international pop star with a No. 1 hit practically overnight? To launch a dance craze embraced by toddlers and grandparents, presidents and talk-show hosts alike? To near 1 billion YouTube views, making it the most-watched video ever?

For “Gangnam Style” star Psy (real name: Jaesang Park), he can sum up 2012 in two words: “Totally exhausted.

Since July, when the 34-year-old South Korean sensation debuted his zeitgeisty video mocking the trendy Seoul neighborhood and featuring an infectious galloping dance (he declined to perform it at THR’s shoot) with only one line in English (you know it: “Hey, sexy lady!”), Psy has been making daily appearances in cities around the world -- be it a performance at the Asian Music Awards in Hong Kong, an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres show in Los Angeles, or the White House’s annual Christmas in Washington benefit.

Grab them while you can: Hara, HyunA, and Hyorin’s ‘Chum-Churum’ CFs to be taken down + Hara and Hyo



Feast your eyes on these videos while they’re still up, for it has been announced that Hara, HyunA, and Hyorin‘s CFs for soju brand, ‘Chum Churum‘ (‘Like the First Time‘),will be taken down.


Lotte Liquor has decided to agree to the suggestion of Seoul’s campaign against alcohol. They will be taking down the CF videos of HyunA, Hara, and Hyorin that have been revealed on their website and on YouTube, which are easily accessible to minors. Although the brand attracted much attention with their model selection and view counts on the CFs released, it was determined that this type of CF could have an effect on teenagers and was suggested that they remove the videos, which they decided to comply with.


On the 21st, all of their videos will be deleted. Future videos will be edited so that they will not be so sexual.


Lotte Liquor said, “We’re disappointed that the videos that we made with high hopes with the three beauties of girl groups will be stopped. However, this is happening from good intentions, so we have decided to actively participate.

Perfect Princess IU could grace our TV (or laptop) screens again!



There is a very strong chance that IU will be cast as the female lead for an upcoming drama, “The Best Lee Soon Shin.”

According to broadcast sources, IU is positively looking through the project, which is to be aired in April of next year on KBS. Discussions with the production team have already taken place since months ago and currently, there is a strong possibility that IU will confirm her decision to join the cast.

“The Best Lee Soon Shin” is about a bright girl, Lee Soon Shin, from a small island village, who moves to the big city of Seoul and works to become a big star. IU will be playing the lead role of Lee Soon Shin if she decides to join. Lee Soon Shin’s character is brave, bright and cheerful. If IU joins the cast, it will be her return to the small screen after two years since “Dream High.”

“The Best Lee Soon Shin” will be a weekend drama on KBS, which means that it will air for a lengthy time period. The drama’s main PD, Yoon Sung Shik spoke with Newsen on December 20 and said, “We are having internal discussions about the casting situation.”

“The Best Lee Soon Shin” will air in April of next year after “My Daughter Seo Young.”

sm to consider adding an additional date to BoA's first concert after tickets sell out in 20 seconds



BoA's first solo concert sold out simultaneously with the opening of ticket sales.

Reservations for BoA's solo concert BoA Special Live 2013 ~Here I Am~ began and finished simultaneously. As it was sold out within mere moments, requests for additional concert dates are currently pouring in from fans. SM Entertainment is planning to hold a private conference on the 21st in order to deliberate on whether to add an additional date.

It appears that the anticipation for her first solo concert was high. A representative of her agency expressed "It is a solo concert BoA is holding thirteen years after her debut," and "Fans who were thirsty for BoA's concert are showing support and interest that is hotter than ever."

The war for tickets is ongoing even after the conclusion of reservations. Currently, a war to obtain canceled tickets is taking place on ticket reservation sites. Ticket prices, which were originally between 80,000 to 90,000 won, went up to 150,000 won in transactions after the tickets were sold out.

Meanwhile BoA is holding her solo concert BoA Special Live 2013 ~Here I Am~ on January 26th at the Olympic Park's Olympic Hall in Seoul. She is planning to focus on showing diverse musical color, and performances of her latest tracks are a matter of course.
