INFINITE’s Sunggyu was hurt by L’s remarks about his solo album? aka a FlopGyu appreciation post

Infinite's Sunggyu was hurt by L's remarks about his solo album?



INFINITE‘s Sunggyu opened up about a time when he felt somewhat betrayed by a group member.


Discussing his solo album, “Another Me“, on the latest episode of MBC‘s ‘Radio Star‘, he revealed that he was disappointed by the lack of success aka floppage of his first solo effort. The conversation started with MC Kim Kuk Jin pointing out, “I heard that your ambitious solo album was a complete failure. Your fans even made posts reading, ‘Don’t even type in or search about Sunggyu’s solo album failing’ since the search ranking will go up.


Sunggyu sighed as he responded, “I saw that. If you type in ‘Sunggyu’ in the search bar, the related search term is ‘Sunggyu’s solo failure’.” The other MCs joked around to make him smile, and he continued, “It came out last year, and the songs were really good. The album is a classic. It’s a really well-made album.” Kyuhyun mentioned that INFINITE-H‘s album was doing well, and Sunggyu explained that it was because they had the name ‘INFINITE’ behind them, while he just promoted simply as ‘Kim Sunggyu’, and explained that he was originally going to be ‘INFINITE’s Sunggyu’, but changed at the last minute.

Park Si Hoo’s fan cafe shoots down rumors of the actor demanding money and gifts from fans

With rumors flying about with various topics on popular online forums becoming reported on by the media, Park Si Hoo has faced many threats to his integrity ever since the rise of his alleged sexual assault against a female trainee. One of those rumors is that Park Si Hoo had demanded money from fans, even disguising himself as one, and that his mother kept a list of items she desired to receive from fans.

The official fan cafe has stepped up to release an official statement on the issue, shooting down all the rumors and expressing disappointment in those who have been spreading snippets out from the posts on the fan cafe, while taking things out of context.

On the topic of the luxury brand name necklace that Park Si Hoo received, the fan cafe stated, “To gift the actor a present for his birthday back in 2012, the fans gathered money, which totaled up to 7,800,000 KRW (approximately $7,200 USD). While considering what to get him for his birthday, we asked the actor and his agency and they had wanted us to just donate it to charity. However, as this particular fund was set up so fans could get him a birthday present, we looked for an item that we could give to the actor, something that the actor would be able to cherish and remember the love of his fans. So while looking for something that would amount to the money collected, we decided on a necklace. It is absolutely not true that the agency and he had requested that we get him a necklace.”

As for the portion about the bank account set up under ‘Park Pyung Ho’, Park Si Hoo’s real name, the fan cafe clarified on the matter. They explained that the fan cafe had initially started a bank account under the name of the administrator of the cafe. However, as the fan cafe grew, in order to more transparently manage the funds, and after receiving a consultation from the bank, the fans and the administrator decided to put down the actor’s name instead to prevent any corruption or controversy within the fan community. The fan cafe commented, “Although we thought that it was a wise decision after putting in a lot of thought, we are very sorry that this actually ended up causing harm to the actor during this difficult time for him.”

Finally, on the subject of Park Si Hoo’s family members, like his mother, keeping a list of items she wants as presents from the fans, the fan cafe commented, “As an actor’s official fan cafe that is filled with fans who cheer on the actor, as the birthday of the actor approaches, the members collect money and through a meeting with the administrator, the present is decided upon, and then delivered to the actor. The presents given to the actor happens only in this way, and there is no ‘present list’ that has been mentioned in the media. It is absolutely not true that the actor’s mother keeps a list, and this is completely defamation of character.”

They further added, “We emphasize this once again, but there has never been any request or demand from the actor and his reps for presents nor money, and all the gifts that have been presented have all occurred under the full negotiation of the members of the fan cafe. So [these rumors in the media] are not only defaming the actor, but also the dignity of the fans as well.”

South Korea Sick of Sistar's Shady & Suspicious Savoir-faire



Article: SISTAR19 'Music Bank' #1 for 3 weeks record, 'SHINee's hilarious 2nd place promise'

Source: Newsen via Nate


1. [+196, -87] All I'm going to say is that SISTAR is manipulating the digital charts ㅋㅋㅋㅋ After Gummy's song came out on Melon, it was #1 for only a brief moment before SISTAR was back to #1 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Sigh, and of course you can't trust anything about Music Bank's points

2. [+163, -16] Today's encore ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ SHINee was so cute ㅋㅋ

3. [+157, -42] I didn't expect anything less. Music Bank never fails to live up to expectations. There are no points to believe in anymore so just be fair and get rid of the trophy system entirely.

4. [+35, -5] Can they just go in now ㅋㅋ So sick of them ㅋㅋ There's no limit on their chart manipulation. Starship, don't you have any shame?

5. [+33, -5] Their song's not even great and it's still #1 on digital charts. I mean I get that there aren't any songs to listen to lately but an idol song #1 for that long by itself? It's kind of obvious...
