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!

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.

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!!

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.

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.”

There was an explosion of interest among fans after a video snippet of Big Bang’s Shouting Korea video with Kim Yuna was uploaded on the 21st.

The snippet titled “G-Dragon beating Seungri” had showed Seungri sitting just behind G-Dragon as they acted out a cheering scene. But amidst the excitement, Seungri accidentally hit G-Dragon and this resulted in the latter shooting him an annoyed look and elbowing him back twice.

YG Entertainment expressed, “There is really nothing sinister, and they are known as Tom and Jerry and are used to playing around to the point of annoying each other. The fans are aware of their relationship.”

Netizens commented, “They looked really serious,” “Kim Yuna was a bit taken aback,” “Overreacting again, they are just playing around,” “It isn’t right to hit him,” “They are in the same group right?” “This is the work of antis right?”

It was revealed that on the recent recording of Family Outing 2, 2PM’s Taecyeon had given SNSD’s Yoona a perfume gift to celebrate her Coming of Age day.

The two have been heavily rumored to be dating ever since being paired together as a couple for a MBC Gayo Daejun performance. Even though they have denied that they were dating, they just can’t avoid being put together, with the recent Caribbean Bay music video being just one example.

Yoona was noticeably surprised at receiving the perfume, “I have received lots of congratulatory message on Coming of Age day, but this is my first time receiving a present. I didn’t have any thoughts of receiving a present so it was touching.

The family members expressed, “There’s something strange about them. Are they really not dating?” to which Yoona replied “Now, I’m tired of explaining it.”

Looking like an epic episode with Heechul, Wonder Girls and now this. But you gotta wait a while as this will only air next Sunday on May 30th.

Hello. This is DSP Media.

Group SS501 who has received much love through mini album 'Rebirth' released
last September with songs like "Love Like This", "Wasteland", "Only One Day"
will be having their comeback in the music world soon with brand new album "DESTINATION".

After successfully wrapping up their asia tour in the first half of the year,
SS501 who took 3 months to prepare for their new album
have been busily preparing for their comeback stages to perform with their new songs.

This album which has been ongoing as a 'world project' has had released some of its
album jacket pictorials which had been the talk of everyone since the beginning it
was released. With numerous Golden Discs holder from US, Steven Lee, who was also
involved in the previous [Rebirth] album production participating in this time round's
album, we could expect a universal album from Korea-Europe-US with the many
world-acclaimed musicians' involvement.

All the songs in this album will be accompanied by piano background arrangement,
and will minimize all possibilities of even more prevalence of the same electronic
genre in the music scene as of present. The beautiful melody of musical instruments
along with only SS501's pleasantly emotional voice will be seen in their upcoming new album
as they return to the scene this end-month.
Especially in the mixing of songs, it was done by US Pop star Ne-yo and Rihanna's
mix engineer producer Kevin KD Davis who's been accoladed with several Grammy awards,
as well as another producer Ken Lewis who's had achieved more than 50 golden discs,
thus increasing by another notch of this world-acknowledged audio album.

Title song has been chosen as 'Love Ya', for which its producer is none another than
Steven Lee, this song will be accompanied by harmonious orchestra band
along with piano background arrangement, you could feel the powerful vocals
of SS501 and their emotions injected into the impactful song praised to be
lined up as a large-scaled performance. US singer John Legend and Kayne West's engineer
producer Ken Lewis who's had
received the Grammy Awards before has personally
participated in the mixing of this song, thus yet again upgrading the quality and anticipation
of this album by another notch.

The first track 'Let me be the one' is a full R&B song composed by Andre Mieux, Steven Lee and
Sean Alexander who was also in charge of producing SS501's Love Like This,
it is a song that's able to further flaunt SS501's matured vocals. Mixing is done by Kevin Davis
who's produced many famous hits like Ne-yo's "So Sick", "Closer", "Because of you",
as well as the current Number 1 on BIllboard Chart -- Rihanna's "Rude Boy". In addition,
hot dance track "Crazy 4 U" which was already revealed previously during their Persona
Asia Tour and collated high popularity has also received invitations from fans
to be included into this album this time since it failed to in its last album (Rebirth).

The final track of their album is a song titled "Until Forever", all productions for this song
was done fully in England, in specific to be in Germany's Frankfurt,
this is a strong and influential European powered pop track finished on a huge production
scale, where its lyrics were written by SS501 member Heo YoungSaeng himself personally,
hence attracting attention.

Ss501's new album will be released on 27th May,
and is scheduled to have their first comeback stage through 4th June's KBS2-TV Music Bank~

More detailed information of their comeback schedule will be uploaded in the
Schedule-Room afterwards at a later date~

Mnet M!Countdown today show a great line up of comeback stages by WonderGirls, 4Minute, C.N Blue, MBLAO and so on. Hope their fans out there enjoy the energetic performance by their idols. Check it out in some of the clips below.








The couple scene between SNSD Yuri and 2PM’s Nichkhun for their Caribbean Bay CF has became a hot issue.

On the 20th, a new preview of their CF/MV was released of Nichkhun and Yuri together in a “hot” atmosphere that can even be said to cause a “puberty problem.”

There were several scenes that caused the public’s interest, especially those where Nichkhun put on body oil for Yuri, the party scene where Yuri showed off her strong body wave and although it was a short teaser, it has created more anticipation.
Netizens commented, “Those two are still young, is it alright for them to film such scenes?” and “It’s enough to just show healthy and bright images of themselves, why do they need to film such weird ‘hot’ scenes together like that. It’s so naughty that it doesn’t feek like a Caribbean Bay CF at all.”

In contrast, other fans have commented positively regarding the CF, saying things like, “Who cares if both of their bodies are good,” and “Yuri is pretty and Nichkhun is cool so what is the problem.”

The CABI MV collaborated between SNSD and 2PM is a clip based on the concept of “Who is hottest cabi?” It shows the love story and hot passions of young individuals in a dramatic story almost like a drama.

What do you guys think, is the clip really worth all the gossip?

So Nyeo Shi Dae HyoYeon garners attentioin with her confession that there is a male idol she is having a crush on.
She was on SBS Strong Heart on 18th May when she said, “There is a male idol I really really like. He would appear in my dreams. And I would think about him before I sleep everyday.”
Not feeling sad or lonely about her crush, HyoYeon said, “The day we have the same schedule at the same broadcast centre, I will put more efforts in preparing. Even though the other members will do rehearsals with their bare faces, I would have make up on thinking that the someone will be looking at us.” And it is known that the other SNSD members are aware of HyoYeon’s crush too. HyoYeon added, “Even though the members will try to push me to him when he passes by, it made me seemed weird.”
Yuri then said, “When we passes by at the broadcast centre, I tried pushing HyoYeon to him before, and HyoYeon would get annoyed saying, ‘Aim properly! I’m being pushed to the kid next to him instead.”
As for who HyoYeon’s crush is, there were some hints given – he does not have double eyelids, has a great sense of humour and dance well. And this came down to the options of Big Bang DaeSung, 2PM WooYoung and 2AM Jo Kwon.
HyoYeon said, “DaeSung sshi is someone whom I want to be friends with.” And on Jo Kwon, “When you go home and search on the internet, you’ll know. But though there will be no answers when you search online…”
HyoYeon then did a video message on the show that day to her crush, “I have no confidence to go closer to you. But I’ll have a crush on my own.”
S:TVReport
From a newsen report, Yuri also revealed that HyoYeon would imagine to be making a call with her crush even though after that when Yuri checked, HyoYeon did not call anyone.

Korean idol group SS501 is gearing up for a comeback with their upcoming new album “DESTINATION” due out May 31, according to their agency DSP Entertainment on Tuesday.

Lee, who had written and arranged all the tracks in the group’s previous album also composed the title track, named “REBIRTH,”"Love Ya,” in the new album.

All the songs in “DESTINATION” have been arranged to piano accompaniments while incorporating a minimum of electronic sounds that are prevalent in current K-pop music.

Some of the songs included in the record are R&B tune “Let Me Be The One” and a dance number called “Crazy 4 U,” which was performed by the band during their “PERSONA Asia Tour” but left out on the previous album. Fans are said to have requested that SS501 include this particular track on the new album.

SS501, who debuted in 2005 with single “Warning,” made a successful comeback to the music scene last October, topping various music charts with their second mini-album “Rebirth”.

They kicked off their “1st Asia Tour Persona” in Seoul last August and went on to perform in Tokyo, Taipei, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

With their upcoming new album, rock band idol group CNBLUE recently revealed their transformed charismatic self in the June edition of Singles.

In the photo shoot, the members are shown with heavy smoky makeup and a chic expression to show off a bad boy image.

CNBLUE’s maknae member Lee Jung Shin said in an interview regarding their new album, “Like the first album, this album has a punky rock feel, but there are also fresh songs that match with the summer season. It is overall very bright and clear.”

Leader Jung Yonghwa added, “It [album] consists of songs that are easy and rhythmical so they are good to sing along to. Moreover, because we have personally composed and wrote some of these songs, this album is more precious to us,” showing a particular affection for their new album.

About how they became sudden stars soon after releasing the first album I’m A Loner back in January, Jung Yonghwa responded, “I still don’t think the album went well. Although the first start was very good, our goal is for the band culture in Korea to be stable and loved through us.”

When Yonghwa was asked what he does for leisure during his spare time, he replied unexpectedly, “I received a lot of influence lately from wife Seohyun so I’ve been reading a lot of books.” Jung Yonghwa and SNSD’s Seohyun are a make-believe couple on the MBC reality show We Got Married.

It’s been entirely too long since we’ve seen the young men of Big Bang together in a music video, but YG Entertainment has finally delivered the official MV for the quintet’s Japanese track Tell Me Goodbye! As we earlier reported, this track was was made for IRIS’s Japanese OST.

A few years back, Big Bang debuted with a hip hop concept, and has since experimented with more eccentric and colorful styles in recent years. This time around, we get to see all five members mature for a dark, vintage look (including TOP with gray hair!) which perfectly fits the grim atmosphere.

Although the mood of the music video itself is quite melancholy, I’m sure VIPs will be overjoyed to see all five members performing again, so without further delay, check out the brand new track & music video here!

SM Entertainment (SM) — considered one of the top three talent agencies in Korea alongside YG and JYP Entertainment — saw its most successful first quarter this year, recording the biggest profit the company has ever seen.

According to a press release issued by SM on Thursday, the agency recorded operating profits of 10.4 billion won from January to March this year, up an astounding 471 percent from the same period last year when the total operating profit for the entire year had been 9.3 billion won.

SM’s total sales during Q1 was also reported at 22.7 billion won, indicating a growth of about 58 percent for the company.

The increase can be attributable to the success of many of its artists including idol groups Super Junior, SHINee, f(x) and Girls’ Generation. With SM-trained pop groups gaining more popularity throughout Asia, the agency is raking in more profits from the their album sales, overseas activities and royalty fees.

SM said that it is expecting the second quarter to be equally successful business-wise since its singers are scheduled to release new records and hold concerts in Asia. In addition, the company is preparing to put out various digital content products such as a digital album for smart phones.

Founded in 1995 by former singer Lee Soo-man, SM quickly became one of the most influential talent agencies in Korea. Lee, who stepped down from SM’s board of directors in February, has created and masterminded the successful careers of numerous K-pop artists including BoA, Fly To The Sky, H.O.T. and TVXQ.

SM also manages many songwriters, music producers, comedians and actors including Ara, Choi Jung-yoon and Lee Yeon-hee.

Looks like netizens aren’t the only ones interested in which idol is dating who!

Goo Hara (KARA) and Lee Hyori recently filmed an episode of KBS 2TV Happy Together and it was revealed by Goo Hara that Lee Hyori held an interest for the latest dating gossip. Goo Hara stated that, “Awhile back, Lee Hyori called me and asked me who were dating amongst the idol group members.”

Lee Hyori continued that statement saying, “When I was in Fin.K.L, I had two cellphones and even though I do make personal calls, nowadays I only stay in the waiting room and don’t go out much so I don’t know who is dating who.”

The studio exploded into laughter when Yoo Jaeseok commented, “So all this time, you asked Goo Hara about it and pretended that you knew?”

Lee Hyori even offered, “If idol members want to date each other, I’ll offer my place as a secret dating venue for their dates.”

The show will be aired on May 13th at 11:15 PM. Stay tuned for the video revealing her interest!

Finally, the full music video for Bonamana has been released. What do you think of it??




It’s been reported that 2AM leader Jo Kwon and Brown Eyed Girls member Ga-In left the country on the 10th to go on their honeymoon to Bali, Indonesia.

Although technically it’s not a honeymoon because they’re actually going there to participate in a wedding photoshoot for We Got Married. The two will be staying in Bali for 4 days and 5 nights and this will be their 2nd international trip, following last month’s visit to Hong Kong.

Perhaps these two are truly meant to be together. After all, you don’t just take official bridal photos if you’re just an “on screen couple”. Let’s not forget to mention that power couple Jang Dong Gun and Go So Young have also just returned from Bali after their honeymoon. Could this be a foreshadowing of the ‘Adam’ couple?

Annyeong...............keke

Have been wanting to write a piece during this while but because whatever I write will get
published out publicily (on the news),
I ended up not writing any


mm still......towards a person who hasn't got any thing to do yet after Bof ended kekeke

what's the interest you've got there......kekekekekeke

I have been living well, even better than the effect of going on drug medicine
Because we pushed back the comeback period, so we feel sorry

What is May 1 then......kekeke
Indeed, 501 albums have the trademark of a Delay isn't it
Do we even have a fixed date ever ???? keke

The anticipation put in throughout 5 years..kekekekeke
Too simple sillies ke (joke only)

Just wait a little more, soon we'll be coming out..keke
and by the way, though I feel sorry,
when the album comes out, there could be quite a few big hit tracks only,
if so, don't feel disappointed

mmm...

When I feel like wanting to say something, I will write it when I feel that way
If my future activities could go beyond June,
I don't think I could carry out solo activities by myself confidently,
then beginning from June, I can't be writing entries on the homepage anymore kekeke
(there's more than it meets the eye)

This isn't the final entry
All of you must have seen the articles right?? hhh
Though have alot to say, cannot say it now

What I want to say is, the album will be coming out soon ... Don't worry ..
Because you all seem to be uneased ..
All of you ... because the songs haven't been surfacing...that's why..kekeke the truth is ..

Whatever it is, don't worry ne^^

Because I was born with a life deemed to receive the spotlight every moment,
and of course to receive the very direct critics as well,
But I even like it that way too kekeke
because I left a name on Earth ..hh
When 2012 comes, I would be presenting a gift ..^^
Since we couldn't ride the boats in Tibet,
Just wait for awhile more, will meet with you all soon, in this month kekekekeke

This entry is really written for you all ne
When I wrote this, it seemed like I wrote alot
when there really isn't much to write about kekeke

If this entry gets published as article (the reporters) will be one who won't have any thing to do
(from this) (nothing to publish as daebak news) ..kekekekekekekekekekekekeke

Ah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also
SS501 will be disbanded...................

You believed? kekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekekeke
