♥ Queen Hyoyeon ♥ for 1st Look Magazine



The modifier 'beautiful' will probably be added to Hyoyeon, who is the most skilled in dancing amongst Girls' Generation members and has cheerfulness. Rather than a young girl, she stood in front of the camera in an alluring, refined appearance and captivated everyone with her characteristic rhythmic sense and showed off a modern beauty.

Sohee interview for 10asia

2013062516542811178-615x410


It has already been six years since the Wonder Girls came into this world. During that time, they became a top K-pop group, turned into adults, took up an unforgettable challenge in the U.S., and leader Sun got married. No girl group has gone through as much as they have. But despite the changes they have experienced, Sohee has stayed the same. She is still pretty and took responsibility for choosing to pursue singing, dancing and acting over ordinary school life. She is now preparing to take her next step as an actress. Below is TenAsia’s dialogue with her through which you can find hints to where she may be headed next.

Outsider and Sniper Sound sue each other



Outsider has filed a lawsuit against his former agency Sniper Sound asking for proper pay for his music and various activities.

Outsider had recently pre-released "Crying Bird" from his fourth album, and when fans tried to buy his previous songs, they realized that all of his songs from 2007 to 2010, in other words the songs he released under MC Sniper's Sniper Sound, were no longer available.

This turned out to be because Outsider had filed earlier on requesting for his contract to be dissolved due to payment issues and also moved onto a different agency. In turn, Sniper Sound filed their own lawsuit against him asking for his activities to be halted.

Outsider's new agency stated through a press release, "During his contract period, he never received properly calculated payment from his album, digital, CFs, concerts, and events. He also wasn't able to receive clear information regarding some of his production work." They also revealed that Outsider's name was never credited in two songs from MC Sniper's 4th album, nor included in copyrights, even though he had co-written the songs.

Due to this incident, once fellow agency artists Outsider and MC Sniper, two of the most respected names of the Korean hip hop scene, have now come to stand at opposing ends.

Character posters for The Face Reader

FaceReader15
What cool posters. Here’s another peek at the quirky and mysterious sageuk The Face Reader’s cast, featured in mesmerizing (and slightly jarring) close-up. I can’t stop staring at them, even though they’re kind of unnerving. Or is that why I can’t look away? Of course the extreme focus on faces is thematically relevant to the movie, but with mugs like these, why wouldn’t you? Between the meta teasers and the character posters, I love whoever’s in the promo department of this production company.

The movie features a great ensemble cast led by Song Kang-ho (Snowpiercer), who plays a gifted face reader who tells fortunes based on facial features using the practice of physiognomy. He has an assistant (Jo Jung-seok, You’re the Best, Lee Soon-shin) and a son who’s learning the craft in his father’s footsteps (Lee Jong-seok, I Hear Your Voice).

The three of them get caught up in a political whirlpool of drama when Grand Prince Suyang (Lee Jung-jae, New World), uncle to a twelve-year old king, vies for the throne himself. He’s opposed by General Kim Jong-seo (Baek Yoon-shik, Gu Am Heo Joon) who had gained a tight grip on the court during the child king’s reign.

Don't Stare at Strangers in Korea

strangers

Article that talks about how police have been dealing with an increasing number of cases every day where fights have broken out on the streets between random people just because one party 'looked at them' while passing by.

Korean psychologists reasoned, "Koreans normally turn away or avoid the eyes when their gaze meets with someone they don't know for longer than a second. The people who don't turn away end up resorting to violence because they feel an invasion of privacy." They also chalked it up to difference in cultures... in other foreign cultures, meeting someone's gaze is seen as a positive thing while in Korea, it's viewed as negative.

I found this to be really interesting, especially, #10's response. Generally, if my gaze comes into contact with a stranger I just give a small smile and then go about my business. What about you guys?

4minute takes over Seoul's clubs and club culture!



“Is it poppin? It is!”

In front of E club in Cheongdam-dong, at 11 PM on the 5th. Loud music beats, flashing neon signs, clubbers sitting here and there in groups. It truly is the scene of Friday night filled with passion. The heat of the Cheongdam-dong back alley is flaming hot.

“Is it poppin?”

People always gravitate to that place at that hour. Friday night. In other words, they are checking out the scene. At that moment, an attention grabbing beauty appears on to the spot. Slender figure, flashy style, she rises above the many clubbers gathered at the spot.

“Is it poppin? It is!”



Five beauties arrived in a small car. It was a white ‘Ray’. As the small car came to a halt in front of the car, an adorable driver steps out. Four ‘older girls’ follow suit. Eyes are drawn to the five girls and instantly the club elevates to another level.

Teo sang part of a Tunisian song! He also did kiyomi; the whole time I was thinking Sam and Yun must hate him for it since they hate aegyo. Then Sam said that was the worst thing he has ever heard. lol Teo did do the kiss part on #6 extra loud twice even going so far as to ask fans to be quite. Oh and who can forget Lukies chanting for Sam to do kiyomi and his utter refusal to it and promise to do kiyomi when LUNAFLY came back. I love you Sam.
