SS501 Park JungMin thinks that he is the force of the team.
Park JungMin was recently featured in SBS E!TV ‘E! Nwes Korea – Star Q10′ and he revealed that even though Kim HyunJoong is the leader, the real force of the team is actually himself.
He said, “In terms of personality, charisma and driving force, I’m the most outstanding. The other members will often change their words. But like many of you have noticed, the force of SS501 is me.”
Recently Park JungMin started his own online shopping mall. And he revealed the fan letters which were sent to his office.
The show is set to air on 9th June at 8pm.


Currently playing a make-believe couple on We Got Married, there’s a possibility that both Jo Kwon and Ga-In could become a real couple after their stint on the show ends.

During the broadcast of Come to Play on the 7th, they were asked if the other person (Jo Kwon/Ga-In) asks you out in real life, would you consider dating in real life. Both of them replied, “Yes.”

Jo Kwon revealed during the show that whenever there’s no recording or filming gets postponed, he would really miss Ga-In nuna. At this point, he would text her, “Nuna, do you miss me?” Ga-In would then reply, “I also miss you.”

Jo Kwon also added that he’s unlikely to revisit places that he has been to with Ga-In with his future girlfriend, leading to cheers from the others.

Ga-In said, “We can still meet even if there’s no recording. But the weird thing is, we don’t mention anything about that. Jo Kwon is an idol, so no matter what, I am still a bit scared regarding his fans. There were fans who left threatening messages on my Cyworld, that they won’t let me off if we become a real couple.”

To commemorate their 200th day of being with each other, the both of them kissed the hands of each other to mark the occasion.

Big Bang DaeSung picks SS501 Kim HyunJoong as his rival.
On KBS 2TV ‘Late Night Variety Nocturnal’, DaeSung had made a surprise voice appearance on the show through Yoon JongShin’s phonecall. Yoon JongShin then tried to find a topic to keep the phone conversation going between DaeSung and SHINee Onew, and asked, “I’m next to your rival. Who do you think he is? Who is you rival amongst the idols?”
DaeSung answered, “Is he Kim HyunJoong?” Yoon JongShin then said, “You have aged much after all. This is fun.” And when asked, “Are there are rivals in SM members?” DaeSung answered with much variety sense, “SM, not yet. They are all wonderful people.”
Finally a conversation was established between Onew and DaeSung where they talked about musical appearances, however the awkwardness between the 2 is still obvious. The MCs also tried many ways to make the 2 idols closer by getting them to use causal language etc.

Kim HeeChul was on MBC FM4U ’2pm Date with Park MyungSoo’ when he was asked, “Is there anyone whom you are interested in?”. His answer was, “I don’t like it that when people are asked such a question they answer that they like everyone. I like being honest. I like female singers like 4Minute, Secret and After School – those who have the cutesy image lately. Awhile ago, WonderGirls returned to Korea and I saw SoHee. She is really someone whose cuteness is just overwhelming. Usually I’m someone who is alright with most females, but SoHee is just really cute.”

A Korean pop concert held yesterday at the Expo Culture Center caused something of a stampede – reports of how bad it got vary, from the Epoch Time’s rumor that someone died to Shanghai Daily’s blithe announcement that the streets were “blocked by fans.”
If anything, this event was a warning about the power of K-pop: South Korea had planned a “classical and pop” concert that included insanely huge acts – Kangta, BoA and Super Junior, whose Shanghai shows sell out at 10,000+ seated stadiums each year they come. They’re so insanely huge that it almost makes you wonder what organizers were thinking when they arranged that show.
To get in, all you supposedly had to do was get an Expo ticket and line up at the center, an act which, if you’re a student, costs 90RMB. That’s way less than the Super Junior 2009 show’s ticket prices at Yuan Shen Sports Center, where the cheapest you could get in for was 480RMB. Unfortunately, there were only 5000 tickets available, and half of those had already been given to South Korean groups – a fact that eager Chinese K-pop fans hadn’t been made aware of.
By midnight on Saturday, according to Lianhe Zaobao, there were already 2000 people waiting outside the Expo’s Pudong door. Night watch people were blindsided. By the time the limited amount of tickets sold out (The Standard reports there were less than 500), roughly 5000 people were waiting around.
When the crowd realized all tickets were gone, they began to get violent. A witness on the internet said that “several girls were stepped on and over by several guys. So messy, so messy, All the crying and yelling turned into one big wave. There were so many shoes. One girl even fell from the second floor.” The original post has already been harmonized on Tianya. Lianhe says the rumor that this girl died hasn’t been confirmed, though Hong Kong’s Apple Daily seems to be reporting it as fact (watch the YouTube video in that link or below, it has some images of police guards frantically running to contain the crowd).
What they both agree on is that hundreds of people were injured, whether from the pushing and shoving or from heatstroke. The Expo official report itself said that “In the event, several tourists suffered from heatstroke and abrasions and were rushed to nearby medical facilities at the park.” That’s a little more than “blocked by fans,” isn’t it?
Which actually makes me wonder – it seems that Shanghai Daily is still the only China-based paper that’s picked up on the news and their version was way more sanitized than the dozens of Mandarin reports in Chinese media. It almost feels like Chinese media controllers, for the first time I’ve noticed, are more scared about what the outside world thinks than what their own people think.

Super Junior’s Leeteuk revealed a surprising past between him and the Wonder Girls’ Sunye.

In the most recent recording of Yoo Jae Seuk and Kim Won Hee’s Come to Play, five Super Junior members and the Wonder Girls were guests.

At one point, Leeteuk asked Sunye, “Do you remember oppa?”

He explained himself, “Sunye auditioned through a TV show. I’ve been a fan of her since. When that show was over, I saw her at a hamburger place and my heart was beating so fast.”

That’s kind of hilarious to imagine considering the fact that at the time, she was in elementary school and he was in high school. Pedobear approves!

The episode airs on the 31st.


On the recent episode of We Got Married, Brown Eyed Girls‘ Ga-In expressed her jealousy towards Yonghwa and Seohyun’s couple ring.

When Ga-In brought up the topic of getting a couple ring, her on-screen hubby Jo Kwon just pretended to ignore her.

She revealed in an interview, “I could buy it myself if I wanted to, but I don’t think Kwon wants to buy one,” and that “He probably thinks I am wealthy.”

She continued, “Honestly, it is impossible to not be compared with the YongSeo couple now that they bought their couple ring.” It looks like Jo Kwon really needs to step it up on this one.


Despite its cast of popular idols like 2PM’s Taecyeon, SNSD’s Yoona and 2AM’s Jo Kwon, Family Outing 2 has struggled with decent viewership and failed to pull through high ratings.

However, a recent turn of events gave the show the spark it desperately needed.

The episodes aired on the 16th and 23rd raked in 11% and 14.2% viewership respectively, marking progressive improvement in the show’s rating.

Furthermore, the most recent episode, which guest starred international superstars the Wonder Girls, ratings for Family Outing 2 reached an all-time high of 22%.

One of the producers of Family Outing 2 stated, “Because Family Outing 1 received consistently high ratings until the last episode, we acknowledged that creating Family Outing 2 from scratch would be flawed in its own ways. There was great concern that all the viewers would abandon the show. However, we are very thankful that, little by little, people are watching the show again.”

As evident through the ratings the pop quintet brought in with their guest appearance on Family Outing 2, the Wonder Effect is still very much alive in Korea.

Super Junior’s Donghae is definitely one of those idols who update their Twitter account regularly and he has once again generated interest among netizens after uploading two new pictures with his brothers (?) on May 29th.

In the first picture (see top), Donghae is pictured with SHINee’s Minho where he wrote, “With our lovely minho ^^ This is my bro M.H.”

Netizens commented, “Why you look younger than Minho, Little Fish?” “This is your son,” “that’s not your bro you stupid fish! that’s your SON!” etc.

Donghae then uploaded a lookalike of Kyuhyun with Kyuhyun himself and wrote, “We’ve found our Kyuhyun’s long lost twin ^^,” and he really is not joking!

Netizens commented, “This is funny. who is he?” “u guys look so alike,” “Amazing,” “His face looks like DongHae & KyuHyun,” etc

I have to admit that they really look like twins in the second picture!

SS501 sure knows how to tease – after releasing their comeback mini-album Destination and music video teaser for Love Ya, the quintet is back with… not the full MV, but yet another video preview!

Although it’d be nice to see the entire thing, this nearly two-minute teaser gives us a juicy peek at a good portion of the music video. We get to see more of the dance and backdrops being used for this video. The powerful choreography for the chorus combined with the members’ chic black outfits gives these young men a mysterious and very masculine image that’s probably already driving some fans crazy. Tell us, which dance move in this teaser is your favorite? Are you loving the collective jump at 0:26, or is that soft descending thrust at 0:39 charming you in more ways than one? (Yeah, I went there…)

Anyway, feast your eyes below!

Netizens commented, “Oppa, I almost have a heart attack,” “ur sisters r one of the luckiest ppl in the world,” “how cute, brotherly sisterly luv,” etc

Many thanks to jazZi^^ for the tip.

MBLAQ’s Lee Joon fainted during a recording for Shin Jung Hwan PD’s Variety World? Not quite what you expected of course but it was a semi-serious situation.

An episode that will air on the 25th featured MBLAQ as guests and Lee Joon was playing a game when he collapsed.

The mission was to eat some ice cream in a limited amount of time. Out of nowhere, he just fell on to the ground and laid down.

He said, “The ice cream was so cold. I felt like my head was gonna break.”

It turns out, he ate it so fast he got a brain freeze and they had to pause recording for a little while. Brain freezes could get pretty bad so watch out.

Lee Joon resumed recording after taking a breather. He joked, “It’s hard for an idol to go into variety.” It sure is.


Having been hospitalized yesterday for his vocal cord polyps and fatigue, it was revealed that CNBlue’s Jung Yonghwa might require surgery to resolve his condition.

According to a FNC representative on the 25th, Jung Yonghwa was diagnosed to have developed vocal cord polyps and acute laryngitis yesterday upon admittance for treatment. Although he can cure his acute laryngitis with medication, he would have to undergo surgery for his vocal cord polyps condition to restore his normal voice. But it was noted that nothing has been decided yet, and a decision would be taken after more scans and futher observation.

With no confirmed discharge date, CNBlue’s schedule for the week are likely to be canceled and future schedules would depend on Yonghwa’s recovery.

CNBlue had only just returned with their new album, Blue Love last week and had completed successful back-to-back comeback performances.


Super Junior’s leader Leeteuk revealed his feelings about enlisting in the army sometime in the near future.

In a meeting with the press, he revealed, “If I want to appeal to the public, I definitely have to go through my time in the army.”

Leeteuk may look young but he’s actually already 28-years-old in Korean age. Most Korean male celebrities enlist when they’re around the age of 28-30. Most believe it’s a necessity to serve in the military because they don’t think it’s right when a celebrity tries to get out of going to the army. It’s part of the duty of being a man in Korea.

Leeteuk continued, “I’m thinking about going into the army next year. Either in the end of 2011 or in the beginning of 2012. I want to promote and work as much as I can and then go off to the army. When I return, I want to work as a Super Junior member again. If I keep working hard, I think I’ll be able to go far as a singer.”

He sure will. Troubled Super Junior member Kangin also has plans of joining the army some time later this year.

Fatique has once again struck another K-pop star and this time it’s CNBlue’s Jung Yonghwa.

It was reported that Jung Yonghwa has just completed filming for We Got Married with Seohyun on the 24th, when he complained of dizziness and subsequently collapsed due to fatique. He was immediately taken to hospital for treatment.

A representative expressed, “Jung Yonghwa had only just recovered from his vocal cord nodule and then had to rehearse a lot in preparation for CNBlue’s new album. He also developed a cold and was probably overwhelmed with fatique. He is now receiving treatment for his vocal cord nodule which reportedly worsened.”

Yonghwa’s condition will mean that the scheduled recording for Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook on the 25th will now have to be canceled. Schedules scheduled for the rest of the week will be decided, depending on Yonghwa’s speed of recovery.

The representative ended by saying, “We will listen to the doctor’s advice and give Yonghwa a break if needed. We will adjust CNBlue’s future schedules accordingly..”

He was already sick before the comeback but push ahead with the schedule. And after four back-to-back performances starting with M! Countdown and ending with Inkigayo and who knows what else, he has finally succumbed to fatique. Let’s hope he does get some good rest and it’s a shame because the album is really good and the comeback should probably be delayed. Health is more important though.

Many thanks to chubby_cheeks for the tip.

In 2008, Super Junior has achieved an unprecedented hit with ‘Sorry Sorry” They became the record king and also swept various awards including Golden Disk Awards, becoming dignified overseas including Taiwan and Hong Kong. However, the good comes with the bad. After moments of happiness and glory pass, bad news came. Member Hankyung requested the dissolution of his contract against SM Entertainment

The wound that Kim Heechul has received was especially big. He lived in the same dorm as Hankyung and had a special relationship with him. Their special relationship can be observed with his cyworld minihompy containing full of pictures that they took together. He said, “I was in a big chaos. It was difficult for me to laugh on TV and dance on stage.”

Afterwards, he did not go on any of the stage including year end award shows. For 3 months, he lived in seclusion, locking his door. His only friends were two cats. Kim Heechul revealed, “I had some lingering emotions. Since I did not meet any people, depression got worse. I had lived with Hankyung, drinked together and was really close. It was mentally difficult.”

During his difficult time, the person who supported him was oddly Eunhyuk who he did not think was close with. There was a distance between them as Heechul who liked entertainment and Eunhyuk who’s a devout Christian were complete opposite of each other. However, Heechul came to himself when Eunhyuk said, “hyung’s not good at singing or dancing, but we can’t survive without you hyung.”

Leeteuk and Shindong also told him encouraging words and Donghae came to his house and made dinner for him. He thought, “I’ve been too attached to one friend when there are many friends who are trying to go the same direction, .”

He emptied his mind. His mind became comfortable after thinking, “when we and Hankyung do well we can meet each other.” Heechul was able to talk about difficult problems on variety shows.

“Because he’s a friend, I despise him, feel sorry, upset. Even though I have many mixed emotions, I’ve become better now.” Kim Heechul said, “I told Hankyung to come over when he gets married.”

Actually, other members were shocked when Hankyung left. It was because the members did not even know about the problem. Leeteuk knew about Hankyung leaving after reading an article. Even though, they were shocked, on the other hand, they felt sorry.

Leeteuk said, “because we were always together, I think we forgot that he was a foreigner. We should have talked a lot but because we were busy we didn’t get to communicate often. It must have been difficult for him to have made that decision. I feel sorry.”

However, after the rain, the ground gets harder. After experiencing various incidents, actually the members became more close. We were able to feel the members’ preciousness. Kim Heechul said, “what I learned after experiencing this is that we have to treat each other well when they are with us. We were able to feel the members’ preciousness.”

Leeteuk also said, “I think we are working harder to fill the empty spaces of other members. There’s always a place for them. They just have to come back. We are going to work harder so that when they feel that they want to come back, they would be able to come back without any burden.”

As you may recall, Super Junior’s Shindong proposed in code language to his girlfriend in the “Thanks To” section in Super Junior’s fourth album. It looks like he’d like to get married in the next few months!

The idol revealed more details about this matter during a recent press conference. He said, “I’ve already met with her friends and they know we’re dating. Honestly, I want to get married in October.”

Shindong also talked about how his girlfriend has been avoiding him since the proposal. He said, “Since so many people have been paying attention to this matter, she’s having a hard time.”

I guess she’s a shy girl. Let’s hope she isn’t getting cold feet!!

2PM’s former leader Jay Park definitely has many loyal fans but via his YouTube channel, he told fans not to chant his name at inappropriate times.

Jay posted a bulletin shout on his YouTube channel saying, “When others are performing on stage, please don’t cheer my name and only do it when I’m performing~ Please wait just a little longer~”

What exactly was this referring to? The 2010 Dream Concert that was held in Korea on the 22nd and the six boys of 2PM. Apparently when the group came out on stage and performed, the attendees of various fandoms that were against 2PM chanted, “Park Jaebeom! Park Jaebeom!”

Either way, Jay hopes that fans will understand that there’s a right and a wrong time for certain things.

During an interview with various press members, Super Junior revealed their feelings regarding their Chinese member Hankyung’s absence.

These days, Super Junior has been promoting with ten members. Kangin is enlisting in the army soon, Kibum is concentrating on acting and Hankyung is caught in a legal feud with SM Entertainment.

Leeteuk commented,

“I think we forgot that Hankyung was a Chinese person because we worked with him for so long. It’s like how a family sometimes don’t share their feelings with each other because they see each other constantly. We didn’t really listen to each other’s problems. I thought about what a hard time Hankyung had to be in to do this. If he has a change of heart, his place is still empty so I hope he returns.”

Although Kangin and Kibum have been supporting Super Junior on their comeback, Hankyung has currently cut off his contact with the members. Let’s hope his issues with SM Entertainment are resolved soon!!

Having been out of the limelight since his various brushes with the law, fans thought they would not be seeing Kangin again until he had served his nation.

But they were given a surprise as Kangin appeared during Super Junior’s ELF 2nd fan meeting at the Seoul Olympic Park Hall on May 23rd which was attended by fans from Korea, China, Japan, Hong Kong, etc.

In an emotional video message, with fans mostly in tears, Kangin said, “My members had suggested that I should greet my fans at this occasion before I enter the military,” and he continued, “I hope that you all will continue to show support for Super Junior and their new album. I will work hard in the army and return to you all as a better person. I’m sorry and I’ll be back healthy and well.. 13 of us will be on stage in 2 years so please wait without having an affair.

The happening with thousands of fans chanting ‘Park JaeBum’ during 2PM’s performance on Dream Concert has garnered much interests.
2PM performed the 2 songs ‘Don’t Stop Can’t Stop’ and ‘Without U’ off their 3rd single album on 2010 Dream Concert which took place on 22nd May at the Seoul World Cup Stadium.
From the start till the end of the group’s performance, fans including those from other groups, had come together to chant for the group’s ex-leader Park JaeBum. With the fans’ loud chants throughout the performance, the 2PM members had seemed a little flustered.


From a Newsen report:
Accounts from some of the audiences, “Even though it’s not like I don’t know how the fans feel but this is a little too much”, “They didn’t think of how the 2PM members would feel” etc.
Meanwhile, member JunSu was not present for the performance due to his knee injury. He had complained of pain at his knees during their performance on KBS Music Bank earlier on Friday, and he was sent to the hospital where he was treated.
A JYP rep revealed, “It’s not that his conditions worsened. It seems like his recovery has been slowed down due to having to attend schedules and receiving his treatment. It has been decided that he will just concentrate on his treatment for the time being. We hope that he will appear in front of everyone healthy and alright soon.”
