Jaurim releases MV for new title track: 25, 21

Legendary female-led rock group Jaurim recently dropped their 9th studio album Goodbye, Grief. And with it, they released an MV for the their mellow title track 스물다섯, 스물하나 (25, 21)

Credit: Official Jaurim Youtube

This video makes me feel so incredibly sad and empty :( I guess that was its purpose, but this is the first time I've seen an MV be made about the rut that young adults face and it just hits home. It's so beautiful and a bit painful to watch at the same time. But I loved it.

Jonghyun Talks About His Flawless Self-Composed Song

In an interview with Newsen, Jonghyun revealed the behind-the-scenes story of his self-composed track, "Gloomy Clock."

"Initially, it was a song written by me, for me. IU and I talk to each other about music quite often. I thought of asking about how to move forward with the song's composition, so I passed it to her. The next afternoon, IU asked me to sell the song to her. It really is good luck."

As with the song's title, the word 'gloomy' makes a total of 20 appearances in the song. Jonghyun said, "This song was written in two, three hours. I was getting a little depressed due to my insomnia, so I wrote down all the things that had happened that day; which is why the lyrics are similar to that of a diary entry."

Synopsis: The world at your feet and the weight of the world on your shoulders. Children of the super-elite class bear the burden of success as they are being groomed as heirs to their family business empires despite only being in high school. Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) is the arrogant and self-centered heir to the Empire Group, a family conglomerate business. But he lives under the constant shadow of his older half-brother, Kim Won (Choi Jin Hyuk), who is already an accomplished young executive in the family business. Despite being betrothed to the equally wealthy and equally haughty Rachel Ryu (Kim Ji Won), a hotel heiress, Tan falls in love with Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye), the daughter of his family’s housekeeper. Eun Sang and her best friend, Yoon Chan Young (Kang Min Hyuk), the son of Empire Group’s secretary, did not grow up like their families’ employer did, but they get embroiled in their lives nonetheless. Eun Sang gets caught in a love triangle with Tan and Choi Young Do (Kim Woo Bin), the condescending heir to a luxury resort conglomerate while Chan Young falls in love with Tan’s ex-girlfriend, Lee Bo Na (Kristal Jung), the socialite daughter of a major entertainment executive. Can a romance survive between the haves and the have-nots? "Heirs," also known as “Heirs: He Who Wears the Crown Must Bear Its Weight” and “The Heirs,” is a 2013 South Korean drama series starring the hottest actors working today.

Lee Min Ho for 10asia

Lee Min-ho has returned. He made a comeback through SBS’s drama “The Inheritors” which hit air this Wednesday. And that too with scriptwriter Kim Eun-sook who with her Midas touch had turned actors Jang Dong-gun and Hyun Bin into the most attractive drama characters possible. Having witnessed the explosive synergy created by the star writer and star actors, it is impossible not to look forward to Lee Min-ho’s Kim Tan (name of his character). TenAsia got to sit down with Lee for a brief chitchat ahead of his shoot for “Inheritors” in Los Angeles, so with the Lee who was in the process of becoming Kim Tan.

The Lee that TenAsia met with had a straight and sharp nose between his eyes that were so clear they made him look softhearted. And the heavy angles to his face were those of a young man’s. It was a beauty that seemed to explain the reason he is loved in all of Asia. But there was more to him that was discovered through the interview: his seriousness regarding acting, his sturdy attitude, and the right amount of confidence that comes from those who do their jobs properly, made him attractive beyond his beautiful looks. When the interview was over, Lee said he enjoyed getting to talk so excitedly about acting for the first time in a while. So below is the dialogue. Enjoy!
