"Taking Time to Cast F4, Monday August 4",
2008 Korea




Much-anticipated drama adaptation Boys Before Flowers, aka the Korean Hana Yori Dango, is taking a little longer than anticipated to complete its casting.

With the immense popularity of the preceding adaptations in Japan and Taiwan, it’s no surprise they’re taking particular pains in the casting process. A representative of production company Group 8 said in an interview on the 4th that casting will be finished by the end of the month.

Furthermore, rumors in June that boy-band SS501 leader Kim Hyun-joong was cast as one of the four leads were said to be “groundless reports.”

In early July, one rep from the production company had said, “We’re interested in auditioning members of idol groups, and about 80 percent of active members of popular groups have participated in auditions.” At that time, they’d thought to be done casting by the end of July, but the process has taken longer than the initial estimate. After rumors spread about Kim Hyun-joong’s casting, they’d wanted to speed up the casting, but that proved difficult.

The KBS2 drama plans to broadcast next January.

"Casting for Korean Hana Yori Dango to be Extended"
August 5, 2008 by coolsmurf




Group Eight announced today that they would be extend the casting process for the Korean Hana Yori Dango which will be shown on KBS2TV in January 2009. According to someone from Group Eight this morning, the casting process which was supposed to end before August would be extended by 0.5 - 1 month and everything will be set in stone by middle or end August.

Following news earlier this year that there would be a Korean Hana Yori Dango, everyone has been particularly concerned with who would be casted as F4. There were also rumors in June that SS501 leader Kim Hyun Joong has been confirmed for the drama but this was later denied to be true.

According to someone from Group Eight in July, although the possibility of picking from Korean idol groups for the drama is high, but no one has been confirmed for any roles yet. The spokesperson added that 80% of current popular idol groups members have taken part in the auditions.

The spokesperson said, “We are happy that the Korean Hana Yori Dango is receiving lots of attention but we are also feeling the pressure of delivering on their expectations. So in order to make sure we have the best person for the roles, we decided to extend the casting process. There will not be any impact to the filming schedule since the drama would only start airing next year.”

“Show Music Core”, Embarrassing Live Performance due to Poor Sound System, “Adverse Criticism”,
Thursday August 7, 2008 Korea





Singers appearing on MBC “Show Music Core” have been criticized for their awkward live singing and the sound system was also being criticized

“Show Music Core” which was broadcasted on the 2nd as Summer Vacation Special held in Uljin Expo Park. Um JungHwa, Wonder Girls, SS501, V.O.S, JunJin, Kim Dongwan, Mighty Mouth, ShinJi, Buga Kingz, Battle, BaeChiKi, Davichi, Moon JiEun, etc. performed on the special set up stage.

However, after the broadcast, viewers expressed their disappointment on the singer’s awkward live singing and the unstable sound system. Some singers couldn’t catch up with the rhythm of even their own songs or couldn’t catch up their breath to sing due to dancing and the microphone volume is too soft for anyone to be able to enjoy the song.

One viewer said “After one whole week of stress, watching music program should help me relax, but instead it adds on to the stress. It’s really frustrating to see the singers’ ability to sing live. The singers should worry less about the preparations of their outfit and practice more on their singing.”

Another viewer pointed out on the bad sound system. “Please pay more attention to the sound systems. It is very frustrating when we listen to it. Can’t the sound system be any better than this? Even though it is a problem for singers who can’t sing live, but then when singers sing live, I feel that the voice and music doesn’t match. As a music program broadcaster, they should consider more about their sound system.”

"Battle of the Idol Groups in Latter Half of 2008",
Saturday August 9, 2008 Korea




If the earlier half of 2008 in the music industry was dominated by Kim Dong Ryul, Brown Eyes, Seotaiji, Lee Hyori, Uhm Jung Hwa, Seo In Young, etc, the latter half of 2008 would belong to idol groups. DBSK, SS501, So Nyeo Shi Dae, Big Bang, Shinee, Wonder Girls, etc are all making their comebacks in the coming months. Especially when October arrives, all the idol groups would be starting their promotions at the same time which should lead to an exciting battle.

Wonder Girls will be returning with their 2nd studio album in September and have completed the recordings under the tutelage of their mentor Park Jin Young who made a secret return to Korea not long ago. They are now training hard for their new album image concept. So Nyeo Shi Dae are also preparing for their comeback with their second album in October. Each member have been embarking on solo projects since they stopped their group activities in January.

DBSK and SS501 who have been busy in Japan will also release their new albums in the coming months. Since their “O! Jung Ban Hub” album in 2006, it has been almost two years since DBSK has had any album promotional activities in Korea. They will soon meet their fans at “SMTown Live 08″ concert on 15th August. SS501 has not forgotten about their Korean fans while making inroads overseas having released “Deja Vu” single and special album “Find” in the earlier half of 2008. They will release their studio album in October and begin their promotions officially. Big Bang has already make their comeback yesterday with their “Stand Up” mini album and it looks to be a hit already with fans. Meanwhile, Shinee, JYP’s 2AM/2PM and Kara will also make their respective comebacks in the coming months with new works.

"WGM's PD's interview: His opinion of Hyun Joong"



Q: If you were determined not to cast superstars, then why is Hyun Joong an exclusion?


Jeon Seong Ho PD: Is Hyun Joong a superstar? Just joking. SS501 and Hyun Joong were casted when we were filming 'Thank You For Waking Me Up'. I got to wake them (the idol stars) up for ten weeks. *laughs*


I got to know Hyun Joong better during that time, so when I was participating in WGM, I thought that he would be able to show himself naturally. Looking at that, I now think that it appears that superstars can do it too.


Q: But for how long is he going to remain so awkward? Although that is interesting as well.



Jeon Seong Ho PD: I have a friend who married an older woman as well. He is literally a kid groom but they are both living well. Hyun Joong is also in the middle of that. Those who are around his age would know his sincerity but it seems difficult for someone of Hwang Bu In's age to catch that.


Hyun Joong plays around with those he is close to and are of around the same age. Why is that even for us, when we were younger, it was difficult when we were around girls that we were interested in?


When I told Hwang Bo "This is Hyun Joong's heart (feelings) but you were unable to catch on" her reply was "Oh, so that was what it was?".


Later, when Hyun Joong meets someone he really loves, he'll be caught in the same headlock again.

"SS501 Korean Comeback Draws Attention Vocally",
Sunday August 10, 2008 Korea




SS501 came back to Korea after a short hiatus with their activities in Japan. SS501 left for Japan back in June. They held four concerts in Japan and participated in various other activities such as appearing on Japanese TV shows.

Back to Korea, SS501 performed "Find" on Music Core today much to the delight of their fans. During the performance many of the fans were chanting with conviction / passion, showing their appreciation.

Not only fans but also critics have began paying attention to SS501 as they proved their vocal abilities through the comeback. Despite having a quiet comeback, as compared to Big Bang, SS501 still proved to be a rival for the idol battle of August.

"Who is the main F4 cast for the Korean Hana Yori Dango?"
Saturday, August 2, 2008




The netizens are exploding with curiousity over the casting list of the Korean F4 for the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango.

Ever since the 14th of July, the web portal Daum has been flooded with these searches, "The greatest good looking men of the century", and "Korean Hana Yori Dango: the Korean F4 members are?". From the many polls and surveys came the following list: Jo In Sung, Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Dong Wook and Chon Jong Myun.


The choice for the drawn, romantist leader of F4 is Jo In Sung who had performed well as Jae Min who was the "rich master who can be drawn but is a deep thinker," in Memories of Bali. This deep impression and overall approval of him can be seen through the results, whereby 62% of the votes went to him.


As for the decent man character Rui, who will have a triangular relationship with Tsukasa and the female lead, the main choice was the man with a charming absurdity, Hyun Joong who is currently filming WGM with Hwang Bo.


Kim Dong Wook of 'Coffee Prince' was the choice for the Casanova character Souchiro, whereas Cheon Jong Myun was the pick for the tough character, Akira.


Meanwhile, the netizens who had participated in the survey stated "I only gathered names of good looking guys for this" and "I definitely want to watch this movie", expressing their satisfaction and anticipation.
