North Korea video shows 'US city' hit by missiles

NORTH Korea has posted a video on YouTube depicting a US city resembling New York engulfed in flames after an apparent missile attack.

The video was uploaded by the North's official website, uriminzokkiri which distributes news and propaganda from the state media.

The video is shot as a dream sequence, with a young man seeing himself on board a North Korean space shuttle launched into orbit by the same type of rocket Pyongyang successfully tested in December. As the shuttle circles the globe - to the tune of We Are the World - the video zooms in on countries below, including a reunified Korea.
The focus then switches to a city - shrouded in the US flag - under apparent missile attack, with its skyscrapers either on fire or in ruins.

"Somewhere in the United States, black clouds of smoke are billowing," reads a caption. "It seems that the nest of wickedness is ablaze."

Because of sasaengs, Changmin's scared of taxis and school uniforms


Sasaeng fans have traumatized a number of idols, and TVXQ’s Changmin was one of them. So much so that apparently he needed to seek help through therapy. In the February 5 broadcast of KBS2′s Moonlight Prince, the panels and guest Lee Bo Young started talking about their own joys and sorrows while speaking of the book Hector′s Voyage or the Search for Happiness by François Lelord.

When MC Kang Ho Dong commented to Changmin, "You probably won′t have time to be unhappy thanks to your busy schedule and popularity," he said, "I used to think I was unhappy. There were fans who chased me around in taxis whenever I went out. From then I always started to feel uneasy whenever I saw taxis. I started thinking, ′Is that a fan? Should I get out to check?′ I became nervous."

He explained that TVXQ’s popularity because a huge burden and said, "I got nervous when I see even one (sasaeng). When I was walking in the streets, of course there were students in uniforms walking too. But when I saw them, I found myself walking with my head bowed to cover my face, touching my phone. I didn’t think I was lucky. I thought I had earned as much unhappiness as happiness."

Because of this, he ended up seeking help, stating, “I received a light consultation. I think these days people are more easily hurt psychologically rather than physically," he said. "Wherever I went, I started to think people were watching me, and it felt like since I′m famous I should avoid meeting people. I just closed up after that."

And now, he says, “I”m enjoying every moment now. I’m happy.” He jokingly commented “I even flipped my hair back now so everyone will recognize me.”

Changmin bb! :( It's ridiculous how all 5 DBSK guys have had to deal with sasaengs since freaking 2004. I remember reading somewhere that Changmin infamously broke down crying in the middle of a sidewalk while he was surrounded by sasaengs who just kept taking his picture. :(

Purplay members get thrown under the bus, apparently responsible for choreo

With the release of their video teaser, fans overseas, especially those familiar with ‘America’s Best Dance Crew‘, immediately spotted the extreme similarities between the choreography of the rookie group Purplay and dance crew I.aM.mE; and even drew frustrated comments from the I.aM.mE members.

Unaware about the attention brewing overseas, their agency has sent out a new press release to domestic media, revealing that the members themselves have helped in the creation of the choreography of their debut song, “Love and Remember”.

Their agency stated, “The Purplay members directly participated in the rap making as well as the choreography creation of the ‘cobra dance’ and ‘puzzle piecing dance’, already displaying their talents. They have outstanding choreography and singing abilities even when compared to any of the existing girl groups. They will rise to be a girl group to look out for in the first half of this year.”

They also added, “Purplay is a group that seems as if they’ll explode with their powerful dance, refreshing vocals, and emotional rap whenever you press the ‘play’ button.”

The group will be unveiling “Love and Remember” on the 7th.
