i'm still side eyeing and face palming over the fact that jype took so long to confirm when every single other media form was saying, especially since they deiced to confirm it just a couple days before pre-production starts and suzy has to go training for archery & martial arts. and excuse me while i keep rolling my eyes thanks to the overzealous LSG fans, I hope suzy makes out a lot with their oppa.
MODS: i edited the post just to add the twitter print screen that i forgot before.

Actor Yoo Oh Sung feels the government is using the entertainment industry

Article: Yoo Oh Sung expresses "In Korean society, whenever a governmental scandal erupts, the controversy is covered up by entertainment news"

Source: Newsen via Nate

Actor Yoo Oh Sung was asked what he dreamt of achieving as an actor and he chose respect. "In Korean society, I often notice that whenever governmental or societal scandals erupt, there is suddenly an explosion of entertainment scandals that are released. In the end, I just don't want actors being used so easily by society for these things."

1. [+716, -120] Whenever a governmental scandal comes out, celebrities suddenly start doing drugs, getting divorces, and going on public dates.

2. [+680, -173] Isn't that why Rain and Kim Tae Hee's scandal came out... because the congressmen passed pension....... shhhh!

3. [+586, -146] I noticed this as well during Seo Taiji and Lee Ji Ah's scandal. There were several other scandals that came out at the same time. I think this goes the same in any country. The entertainment industry is used to distract the public and cover up anything else that's more important. There are way too many instances of this happening to call it a mere coincidence.

4. [+59, -22] I'm honestly tired of conspiracy theories. It doesn't make sense for a celebrity to go out drunk, get in the car, and hit someone just because someone told them to so they can cover for another governmental scandal.

5. [+49, -36] I don't believe in these conspiracy theories either. In what world would celebrities go out and do drugs, drunk drive, and murder people just to cover governmental scandals ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
- Haven't you noticed that most of the scandals were events that took place months or years ago but are conveniently released to the public at the same time as a governmental scandal?

Last batch of Jaejoong interviews

“There exists an unjust world that people can’t see”

- His lawsuit comes to an end in 3 years… His first solo album in 10 years

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong (27), who we met at the Seoul Plaza Hotel on the 21st, seemed to be cautious of his words. When we asked him how he felt about his recently ended lawsuit, he seemed to shake a bit before he spoke up. He said, “I’m really happy,” and “You probably don’t know how big my smile was when I heard the news.”

Cube Entertainment CEO Hong Seung Song Terminally ill and Near Death as he battles Lou Gehrig's Dise

The president of Cube Entertainment which houses 4minute, BEAST and many more popular idol groups, President Hong SeungSong (49) is revealed to be suffering from ALS disease (or also known as Lou Gehrig). A representative from Cube Entertainment spoke out regarding to such ‘rumors’, “Although (the president) is not feeling well now, he does not have those widely spread rumored diseases such as Lou Gehrig, Parkinson or Cancer,” they ‘clarified’.

However, after compiling testimonials from some long acquaintances of Hong president, it was a ‘fact’ that he did have Lou Gehrig disease. According to their testimonials, Hong president wasn’t feeling well early of last year, and was sent to a famous hospital. He was thought to have caught Lou Gehrig disease, but it was insignificant then. In the second half of the year, during their family concert in South America, Hong President who joined along went to America to confirm his diagnose of Lou Gehrig disease.

Close friends of Hong President expressed that he’s having some movement inconvenience and could only stay sit on the chair. The agency however, denied any allegations of such disease by saying, “He comes to work on time and moves as he works”. Reporters tried to talked to him on the phone for the past three days, but he refused to take in any. A representative hinted, “After receiving a confirmed diagnose in America, it’s true that he’s now resting” and, “A few of his close friends who have heard the news have came to comfort him”.

Hong President is an invincible legend who has been in the music industry for the last 20 years and had raised numbers of top stars. Started as part of a management team for singer Lee Yerin, he had worked with talented artists such as Park GiYoung, Lyn, Kim DongRyul and many more. He then worked hand in hand with Park JinYoung in establishing JYP Entertainment.

His life was continuously ’fearless everyday’ until he finally established Cube Entertainment and becomes a leader of K-POP. In 2011, in an autobiography that he wrote,”There won’t be any spotlight if you stop now”, it stated that he waited (fearlessly) and as he sacrifices for that, he is a ‘Master of Patience’ that would wait quietly for talented and passionate individuals.

We once met up with Hong President 2 years ago. During that time, not only did we interviewed him and another composer in the Cube Entertainment building, he also personally escorted reporters till the parking lot. He did not say much and his pale face was kept smiling even when reporters turned around and leave. This short testimonial was recently passed to me by an affiliate in the circle. He said, “The management system differs a lot now” and, “He’s that rare type of manager that treats people with warmth”.

Hong President who has explained a new K-POP strategies through passion, and emancipates warmth to those others, we hope to see his ‘fearless’ look in the near future soon.


For those of you who don't know what ALS/Lou Gehrig's is It's a disease that affects nerve cells and is characterized by a rapidly progressive weakness, it keeps progressing until it results to death. The progression of the disease can only be slowed down with medication, but there is currently no cure for it. The median survival from the time of diagnosis is three to five years. There is no cure.
