Heo Young Saeng With Former A'st1 Member Lim Han Byul

Lim Han Byul, a former A'st1 member tweeted a picture of him with our Otter prince Young Saeng! I believe this was taken yesterday, Aug 29. This was reportedly taken at a concert of Monday Kiz, a Korean group in which Han Byul is now a member of. Glad to see that ex-DSP talents are still friends even though they're not in the same company anymore. The pic is a bit blurred, but we all miss Saengie, so every sighting of him that we can uncover is precious.

After finished the recording Jaejoong stated, “Looking at Yoochun in acting scenes wearing Korean traditional costume and used different tone of speaking like saying ‘Come here!’, I feel it’s weird but am amazed at the same time.” and “I think after watching some of the drama scenes, it will be an interesting drama to watch and I feel that it’s going to become a hit.”

Jaejoong also added, “Furthermore, since there is this opportunity to participate in performing a song that will become part of the drama’s OST, which I think it’s a really good song, hopefully the OST is going to be a hit just like the drama itself.”

Xiah Junsu who had a surprise visit to the filming set sometime ago while bringing some food said, “The same as Jaejoong hyung, when I saw the trailer of ‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’, I think Yoochun fits well in his Korean costume and his acting was so good that makes me naturally feeling proud.” he continued, “Yoochun ordered me to sing the song in much heart pouding feeling (?), but it’s been a while since I listened to Korean song lyrics, so naturally I feel the heart pounding while singing anyway. If there’s anything that could be Yoochun’s accompanying power, then I’d like to help.” expressed strong friendship between them.

Meanwhile Yoochun, “Despite their busy schedule, Jaejoong hyung and Junsu still do the recording to cheer me up, I’m really impressed. Especially Junsu who’s actually in bad condition, but still forced himself to continue participating. I’m going to work even harder to repay them.” said whole heartedly.

‘SungKyunKwan Scandal’ official Lee Hyun Wook PD who’s in charge of recording area said, “The three members supervised each other, they finished the recording well in a bright and pleasant atmosphere.

SNSD's Taiwan Concert Tickets Sold Out After 1½ Hours

SNSD’s popularity in Taiwan is overheating.

SNSD began an advance sale of their tickets on the 28th to their October 16th concert in Taiwan. On the same day online sales also began and people who wanted to buy tickets flooded in causing the homepage server to go down. The server could not be restored, so the tickets were only sold offline. However, even though people could only buy the tickets in person, 11,000 out of the 12,000 tickets were sold and their popularity could really be felt.

Taiwan’s TVBS Newspaper reported, “Fans of the Korean idol group SNSD flooded in because they wanted to go see their concert and this caused our homepage server to go down. We couldn’t expect that so many people would flood in. We quickly dealt with the offline sales and all of our prepared tickets became sold out after one and a half hours.”

SNSD already finished up a solo concert in Shanghai, China on April 17th. Their Japanese debut showcase was also received explosive interest, at first one 1 performance was planned and they changed it to 3 performances. From now on we wonder if SNSD can cross from Asia and grow into world stars. We will pay attention to future developments.

SM Town Live 10 coming to Singapore?

This is probably the sentence that got people all hyped up for the past an hour or so. Singapore’s U-Weekly magazine published an article that garnered much attention from fans of SM Town artists (SNSD, Super Junior, f(x), BoA, Trax, SHINee,etc). Here it is:

The article basically says this:

Besides confirming Super Junior’s Super Show 3 which will take place in January next year, local (Singapore) concert organizer, R.I.T.S are in talks with SM Entertainment to bring the SM Town Live 10 Concert to Singapore.

Interesting? It sure is, but do keep in mind that it’s not confirmed yet. At least there’s something to hope for. If it happens, then it will be another good news for South East Asian fans.

Publisher Talks about Minho & SHINee

Living in Korea doesn’t mean that your world revolves around KPOP only. I am Korean, but little people know that some Kpop acts are fake. It is sad, but that is the truth. At one point, I even stayed away from the Kpop scene and opted to listen and follow the underground acts only.

But working in the publishing filed, directly involving with Kpop.. I have to be neutral. I have to keep reminding myself not to be too skeptical but it was hard when the thing you do not wish to see, do not want to hear are in front of your eyes. But it all changed in one day. It is all because of SHINee.

We anticipated that day very much, because we finally got our chance to do the interview of this group that we admire so much. I am not a big fan myself, but I respect them as they work very hard to accomplish what they have today, being in this cruel industry where the competition is very fierce.

That day, we couldn’t wait to meet SHINee.

As soon as we were done with talking and interviewing Key, Onew, Taemin and Jonghyun, it was finally Minho’s turn. He was very quiet and thoughtful the whole time questions were being asked to the rest of the boys. He talked occasionally, and smiled most of the time. At other times he simply looked down, and laughed a bit at the jokes Onew was telling. He threw glances at the boys and there was no mistake the strong brotherhood that these boys have. He would pat Taemin’s back sometimes and squeezed the tense muscles out of Jonghyun’s shoulders.

The sessions continued for more than two hours, and at one point he even went to get the drinks for the members instead of waiting for our staff to bring them to them.

Jonghyun and Taemin went out of the room for a while, and we started to ask Minho our 1st question to him. “Minho is known as a very competitive person. Some people say it is very disturbing to see that streak in you because you are young and you are supposed to enjoy your life or not taking anything too seriously. What do you have to say to that?”

He looked very much lost in thought for a while before calmly stating:

“When I was very young.. I wanted to become a professional soccer player. I love sports very much to a point where I learned everything there is to it about football, and entered every football match around. My thirst in winning was unquenchable that I worry my family off. One day, my dad told me he opposed of me of pursuing that one thing I ever wanted at the time and I was crushed. He didn’t want me to become a football player. He said having sports as a career is very tough, he knows it because he is a professional football coach himself. I was lost and didn’t know what to do and when I came to my senses, I decided that I would never quit to fight in everything I do. If I do one thing, I do it wholeheartedly, even if people keep telling me it’s impossible, I would never want to believe them and I would have faith in myself instead. Fight something as if it is your last fight.. as if there would be no more chance to do that later. That’s what triggers the competitiveness in me.. If I lose, I would be very disappointed with myself, keep blaming myself of the loss. Keep telling myself I would do even better in the future.”

At this point, Onew kept nodding at what Minho was saying. We were surprised when Onew added, “Minho does what he does best, doing at his very best ability like there’s no tomorrow. Be it in performing, or playing or sports. Even I cannot do that as a leader.”

Q: You were seen as the quietest out of the five. Is there any reason to it?

A: I am the youngest in my family. I have an elder brother. I was raised to listen and then talk. Not to talk and then listen. Meaning that, I was taught by my mother to be an observer and a listener. Because my hyung is the first son in my father’s side of family line in 30 years, he was the center of attention, while I enjoy being by his side – to be a good friend for him in an oppressed situation, to always be there for my mother and my father when they need me… even if I do not do good as their son. That’s why I am quiet most of the time. I tend to listen rather than do the talking.

By this, Key said to us, “If he is loud…. he is toooo loud,” which aroused laughter in the room and having Minho chuckled, looking slightly blushed.

The interview session went about for another 30 minutes. Bu this time, he looked very comfortable, and was able to talk more freely.

Q: What’s the name of SHINee’s fan club? What do your fans mean to you?

A: [smiled widely before continuing] It’s SHINee World or SHAWOL in short. Where I am today, where we are today… It would be impossible without the love and support by our fans, we went to see SM Youtube page sometimes and were very, very surprised to see the warm, encouraging comments left by the fans on our videos. I hope I’ll be able to understand English more. I want to be able to understand what they were saying. We worked on this new album for 9 months… having sleepless nights of choosing songs.. writing lyrics.. singing rehearsals… recording songs… dancing training.. discussing the concept etc.. all for our fans. We are glad that we finally get to do what we love most which is to entertain.

Q: Any last words to your fans?

A: Thousand of apologies on my bended knees to our beloved fans because I cannot perform on the stage with other members. We just finished recording our MV and just waited for the comeback stage when that accident happened. My ruptured muscle would take a very long time to recuperate but as for now I am taking the medicine which enables me to resume my stage performance in the near future. I am still in pain but will endure it for the fans. Please forgive me for my recklessness. SHINee World is our world. Our world revolves around them. We appreciate your love very much. If I could bow to each and very one of you, I would. ‘Thank you very much’ would not be sufficient enough but please know in your heart that we really appreciate all of you. And for that, I THANK YOU. WE THANK YOU.

As the session wrapped up, we came to realize that these shining boys are very special. Minho is such a good conversationalist. We would never expect that from him. He is very humble and down-to-earth.. when he went out of the room, the rest of the 4 boys waited restlessly for him to come back.

Taemin selected food from each tray and put them on a plate. “This is for Minho hyung,” he said. Key kept bothering him at the side, “Minho doesn’t eat this one. Let’s take more Kimbap rolls for him. He loves that.”

SHINee won’t be SHINee without Choi Min Ho. SHINee won’t be SHINee without Key, Onew, Jonghyun and Taemin. They complete each other up.

Before the day ended, I realized that I am proud of these young men who work very hard in accomplishing what they have today. Surviving in Kpop is tough and I hope they will stay humble and stay the way they are, to keep their feet on the ground always and not forgetting their roots.

That day I realized I wanted to become a SHAWOL too. That I day I realized, Kpop is not such a bad wave after all. Thanks to Minho & SHINee, I have more faith in Kpop nowadays.

2PM's Taecyeon dreeses up as a woman!

2PM’s Taecyeon challenged himself into dressing himself as a woman.

Taecyeon posted a photo of himself at the 2010 Incheon Korean Music Wave Concert waiting room, dressed up as a woman, along with a message saying “when it comes to long hair, it’s gotta be Ok Taecyeon!” on his Twitter on the 28th. In the photo, he is posing cutely with a long wavy wig on, and with his index finger on his cheek. Taecyeon also told the situation back then, saying “As soon as the dry rehearsal was started, the introduction of ‘Without U’ was started, and it was lightening, thundering and raining unbelievably. If it was a main broadcast, it would have felt like filming our music videos again for real?”

The fans’ responses after seeing the photo were all different. While some fans complimented him saying, “pretty”, “it matches you”, some fans persuaded him not to dress up as a women saying “I don’t think dressing as as women is for you”, “your masculine images fit you much better”

2PM is striving for preparing their encore concert in September.

Shawol Fan Account - SMTown Live '10

This is a fan account by a SHINee fan, but it's completely relevant because it's mainly about HoMin and Cassiopeia.

After everything that happened yesterday, the shock of being at the live concert, the heartache, the wonderful heartwarming moments, and then seeing all the photos and videos, there are so many emotions that I honestly dont' know how to express. I wanted to start writing something last night, but I really didn't know how to start. That night, I was in awe, not only by our kids, but also Yunho and Changm and the wonderful Cassiopeia and Shawols. Looking back on the videos from 2 years ago, I suddenly realized that our kids have really grown up. They used to run after their hyungs like their beloved dongsaengs, or perhaps they were a source of motivation...

I've always really admired Yunho, the past few years in Korea, everything about him, from his personality to his reputation, everything about him made people who loved him proud. That is why, when I saw the 8 whole banners dedicated to him at the stadium, I wasn't surprised at all. Even when the entire stadium erupted with screams of 'JUNG YUNHO', I wasn't surprised. Someone like him is totally deserving of that kind of love. I really like him as well, because I know that Yunho loves our SHINee, he buys them food and goes to watch their performances to give them support and encouragement, and he and Changmin always play basketball and go bowling with Minho. He brought Jonghyun and Key to dinner to watch the World Cup together, and went to Taemin's dance training sessions despite having to work on his own CFs, magazine shoots and rehearsals. He helped our kids make the perfect 2nd album. He was even their for their comeback stage, going to the venue with them and staying with them backstage...

Knowing that the kids have a hyung like that makes me really happy and completely content. Everything that Yunho endured as the leader of TVXQ, he's spoken to Onew about. He's taught him so much, yes, he's always trying his best to help Onew become an even greater leader than he is. At the same time, he also knows about the burdens and responsibilities he has to shoulder as a leader, and that is why, compared to the 4 other members, he is especially kind to Onew. Only because he knows too well how difficult it is to be in that position and how important it is to show him love and support. Onew, being younger and softer than Yunho needs extra love and protection. This hyung has put so much effort into protection our kids, in the hope that his personal experience will help get them further and make them a better group. This is why, last night, when I saw a tired, quiet and expressionless Yunho exchanging glances with the 5 members; when I saw Onew by his side, Taemin putting his arm around his waist, Minho tugging him along and Jonghyun and Key walking past him over and over again to help cheer him up, I felt content and proud. Huuhuu, I don't know whether it's because I'm too much like a mother, everytime I see the SHINee members showing love for their hyung, I feel a rush of pride. They're kids who really know the meaning of being grateful. Hyung's time and love hadn't been wasted, it's no wonder he likes you all so much.

Yesterday, in the hearts of Cassiopeia who had been waiting for over a year by now, there was bitterness and pain, but more than that, they were proud. Anyone who sees them would be in awe by the love and devotion they've shown towards their idols. Of course, this is because their idols really have made themselves worthwhile of their sacrifices, yet what amazed me most was that whether it be this year's Dream Concert or last night's SMTown concert, Cassiopeia gave TVXQ the same red ocean. Last night, when the big screen started to pay the VCR of HoMin, most of the fanlights had been switched off and I was almost a little shocked. However, in less than a minute, when HoMin descended from above, the stadium which had previously been a sea of various different colours completely transformed in to a red ocean. This kind of scene, whether you're a Cassiopeia or not, it really leaves people completely awestruck or even in tears. I saw lots of Cassiopeia unnies holding onto each other as tears poured out of their eyes. So many of them continued to wave their glow sticks and fan signs even as they were overcome with emotion.

That night, I should've been really happy because SHINee really delivered an amazing performance, they were so adorable and they had such a great time. Yet as I sat amidst the Cassiopeia unnies, I really couldn't help myself from screaming and crying with them. When HoMin's performance ended, they really lost control. If the tears from before had been the result of a year's worth of waiting, of pain, of controversy and of happiness over HoMin's return, then this time, it was simply because they'd lost it. They were in so much pain that they had all completely broken down. We've never heard the two talk about the pain and torment they've endured over the past year, yet we all understand, and that is why so many fans from all over the world have come to support them. In the end, the Yunho fans who were sitting next to me were still mumbling 'what to do what to do, (we) really want to go to the US, to China, to Japan, even if it's only for 6 minutes, 6 minutes is better than nothing, (we) have to go with him.' Some also said that seeing the fans with Bigeast towels who'd come all the way from Japan really hurt them more than anything. At the end of the concert, some of the Yunho fans came over to us Shawols and ELFs and bowed as they thanked us. Eventually, we all started crying with them, aish.

When I got home, I really wanted to see how the fans from China had reacted, of course, everyone was shocked and angry at first, but people slowly started to comfort one another, and I saw lots of words of encouragement from the fans. I was so touched! 'We'll treat it as though the purpose of their appearance was not to dance or to sing, but simply to see those who've missed them and to tell us that they're still protecting TVXQ, it's completely worthwhile.' 'Even though it only lasted 6 minutes and we waited 7 long hours, as long as we're able to catch a glimpse of them and see that they're well, it's enough.' There were lots of messages like that, and each and every single one of them touched me. All of a sudden, I remembered a conversation I'd had with a Yunho fan last night. I asked her why she loved Yunho so much and whether it was hard or tiresome for her. She replied 'I do get tired, of course I get tired, I get tired, bitter and angry. He really is a a fool, but there's really nothing we can do, we'll stay by his side and help him through the hard times because compared to everything he's been through, our suffering and our exhaustion is nothing.' After last night, I suddenly had a newfound love for these unnie fans, I really really like them, they're definitely the most lovable fans I've ever seen.

Thinking about how good the oppas are to our SHINee and how nice the Cassiopeia unnies are to us, I really hope that one day, SHINee World will become just like Cassiopeia, so that our boys will be proud of us as well.

'Hello everyone, we are Dong Bang Shin Ki'
'Hello everyone, we are Cassiopeia'

This was the first time I've personally heard the exchange between TVXQ and their Cassiopeia and I was truly touched. I hope SHINee World and our boys will be able to achieve the same kind of perfect connection one day. I know we're not far from it…

Whoaa... SHAWOLS ... U must know that Cassi love HOMIN so much .. most of all .. we miss all DBSK ... so dont think that we dont love SHINee...

a-nation Tokyo Part 3

This is by a Chinese fan who went to a-nation.

I went to a-nation yesterday. Since I live pretty far away and I had to go to a meeting at my University beforehand, I left home at around 8 in the morning. After I attended my meeting, I took a bus to Shinjuku from Shibuya and then took the Keio line to the venue. The stadium was around 10 minutes walk away and it was 1:30 by the time I finally arrived. This was my first time there and it felt a lot like Tokyo dome. Since my friend and I arrived pretty late, we were worried that all the merchandise might have sold out so we quickly hurried over to the stand. There was a really long line and up ahead we saw a sign that said "JYJ T-SHIRT SOLD OUT'. Apparently only the JYJ shirts had sold out, tshirts for other artists were still in stock. As we were waiting to get to the front of the line, I scanned the rest of the crowd. I was in such a hurry on my way in that I didn't really take a good look around, when I did, I realized that almost everyone around me had an orange towel around their necks with 'JUNSU JEJUNG YUCHUN' in big bold print. I felt really happy then because no matter where I went, I'd bump into people with orange towels, even fan boys. Because I was so late, the t-shirts, bows and totes had all sold out and I only managed to buy a towel and a fan. The fan had a cartoon version of JYJ, kawaii.

When I was done buying merchandise, it was 2. My friend and I hurried into the stadium, found seats and sat down. A sudden loud noise shocked us both and we saw that Koda Kumi was first up on stage. People started to get excited as she walked on. Koda Kumi's singing is absolutely amazing, the studio and live versions are exactly the same. The Bigeasts/Cassiopeia that were there cheered really loudly for her, probably because she takes good care of our Dong Bang boys. She sat on a vehicle and went around the stadium once, waving to people along the way. A few singers that I didn't know the name of followed after that. Since it was right in the afternoon, the heat really was quite unbearable so my friend and I decided to go out and wander around for a bit because we were both only here for JYJ anyway, it didn't really matter whether or not we saw the other performances. We bought shaved ice but were still really hot afterwards. We agreed to go back in after the sun set and so we went back in at about 4. More artists we didn't know the names of performed… We waited… and waited… During the break, the cameraman panned the camera on the audience. We saw a few cute kids but then the camera suddenly focused on a few JYJ light boards, they wrote 'JYJ We Love You'. At that moment, a thunderous round of applause sounded throughout the stadium and everyone enthusiastically cheered for the girl holding the board. Then the cameraman zoomed in on even more fans with JYJ signs and merchandise, and everytime he did, the audience would applaud. Looking around, the entire venue seemed to be covered in orange. My friend is a new fan and didn't really know how legit us Cassiopeia/Bigeasts are so she was completely awestruck. DBSK has so many fans it's kind of scary.

People started to get restless at 6:30 and many started taking out their red glowsticks. There even seemed to be more members of staff all of a sudden. One held up a sign which said 'No video/audio recording or photography, even mobile phone photography'. There were lots of staff around us watching our every move so we couldn't take any photos or film anything even if we wanted to. In front of me, a girl took a photo, but then got her camera confiscated and was told that it'd be returned after the concert. Despite this, I still managed to sneak in a few shots.

After a while, JYJ appeared on the big screen. All the red glow sticks came on around the stadium and the screams hit peak. Cassiopeia/Bigeast completely took over the concert. Even though you weren't the focal point of the concert and even though your performance wasn't particularly long, we gave you your red ocean. I wanted to take a photo of the red ocean, but couldn't because the security was so tight.

Then Jaejoong appeared followed by Yoochun and Junsu. My immediate thought was that Junsu had lost some weight and then I noted how cute he looked with his new blonde hair. I'd thought that Yoochun would've cut his hair short by now since filming for his drama was already over. In the end, he still brandished the same long hair and his wide forehead. Jaejoong ah, he was still as handsome as ever.

After the first song was over, it was time for Junsu's solo. His amazing singing and sexy dancing had the audience screaming incessantly throughout his performance. Then it was time for soulmate's 'Colors'. Jaejoong and Yoochun stood on opposite sides of the stage and then swapped positions. In the middle when they were singing "lalala', the sound was completely phenomenal. On the last line, Jaejoong playfully stopped singing and just as Yoochun got ready to sing, he said 'hold on a moment' and then started laughing….

They then performed some songs from their new album. When they were singing 'Get Ready', the fans sang along with them at the 'OK'. When they got to 'W', I really couldn't hold my tears in anymore, the lyrics really brought tears to my eyes, but since I had a friend beside me, I tried to contain myself. Shockingly, my friend started to cry before I did and I burst into tears with her. When their performance was finally over, nearly all of Cassiopeia/Bigeast was in tears. The stadium was completely covered in red. I'm grateful to the Japanese fans, thank you for your unconditional love for them.

As Junsu walked off stage, he turned back longingly to look at the red ocean. His eyes seemed to brim with tears….

My friend and I left after JYJ's performance was over. Even though we felt slightly apologetic to the artists who performed afterwards, I had to leave because I live so far away and I was afraid I wouldnt be able to catch the bus.
Being able to see JYJ had me completely content.

Even though I'm really tired, seeing JYJ made me really happy. My only regret is that I went in heels and now I'm so tired that I'm afraid to walk.

A-nation really moved me. Those of you who haven't seem them live really should go and take a look for yourselves. Seeing fan videos is nothing compared to seeing them live.

Kyaa ... Cassi must be so jealous right?

a-nation Tokyo Part 2

A lot of details were omitted when this was translated from Japanese to Chinese so this is only a rough summary.

Lots of the fan glow sticks had already been switched on by the time Jaejoong started singing 'いつだって君'

At the beginning he looked like he was going to cry.
Actually, he didn't look too well. Jaejoong are you okay? I'm a little worried.

Yoochun asked 'Ready OK?' twice when he was MCing.
The first time he said it, he said 'Compared to when we were in Osaka, I'm not feeling too well.' And then he said it again.
Jaejoong said that he realy wanted to try doing Yoochun's 'Ready OK?' 'How are those of you sitting above?' 'How about the people on the left, good?' things like that.

Junsu had to prepare for Intoxication, so he didn't say much.

Jaejoong is so cute
Everyone sang together lalala~~~

if HOMIN are there... it must be really fun! right Bigeast?

a-nation Tokyo Part 1

Around 50% of those in the stadium were in orange at the beginning, by the end, there was 70-80%.

The time JYJ came out was around the same as when they were in Osaka, as we approached the moment of their appearance, the guards became more strict.
Even as I took out my phone to check the time, I'd feel scared.
The songs they sang were pretty much the same as those in Osaka.
At around 18:40, when the sky was slowly darkening, the three of them finally walked out.
All the red lights suddenly came on.

They sang six songs in total, and this pretty much sums up how I felt:
Jaejoong is really cute
Jaejoong is absolutely stunning
I felt electrified by Jaejoong's voice
I could hear Jaejoong's voice echoing in my head
Jaejoong was hilarious during the MC section
I was kind of entranced by his dancing

Yoochun looked really happy and he was especially talkative during the MC secton. 'Junsu's introduction was so boring, don't you guys think? It was seriously boring (^W^), I'm Yoochun~ (He said this with a cute voice).' He yelled 'OK' more than once and said that 'That wasn't as powerful as when we were in Osaka' and did it again. Yoochun was smiling and laughing from the beginning to the end, it was absolutely adorable. He was also the only person who threw a towel. (Jaejoong threw a towel at the end)

When Jaejoong was MCing he said 'I want to yell OK like Yoochun too' And then he walked to centre stage and yelled 'Are you all awake~~??' twice.

I don't remember much about Junsu, but he was very charismatic.

Yoochun's rap in 'Colors' was cut and towards the end, Jaejoong stopped the song. Yoochun asked 'What are you doing?' and then the two of them started bickering like an old couple.

Then they ended with 'W'

When they were singing the official a-nation song, Yuki got on stage and started calling her friends on stage to sing together. 'AMI SUZUKI, KODA KUMI, AAA~~' etc. lots of her friends came up. Just as I thought she was done, I heard 'JUNSU~~!' Of course, Junsu was going to be singing as well, I was shocked for a moment but didn't think much of it until I heard' JAEJOONG, YOOCHUN~!' She shouted all three of their names! The three of them walked on in orange t-shirts~! Even though they only had one line each, I was glad I didn't leave half way through the concert.
