"SHINee does another remake



SHINee has yet another remake on their debut album. This time, their song “Love’s Way” uses the melody and beat of the old school, 80’s song “Tender Love” by The Force M.D.s. SHINee makes “Tender Love” more poppy but it is essentially the same song.

Similar to Norah Jones‘ first album was all covers of old songs and Joss Stone’s debut album was all covers as well, she took a rock song by the White Stripes and made it into a soul song for her debut single.

But SHINee isn’t doing covers, they’re using people’s beats and changing lyrics. It’s all legal, they bought the rights."

"JYP's "pride" 2PM MV out



JYP has his pride on the line for "2PM", his newest boyband since the days of legendary G.O.D.

2PM finally released their much anticipated single album "Hottest Time of the Day" on August 29. JYP revealed that "this group is my pride and reputation" because 2PM is his newest boyband in 10 years since the creation of G.O.D. The title of their album "Hottest Time of the Day" implies that 2PM will reflect the bussle and activity of mid-day by working hard as a dance group.

2PM's title song is "10 points out of 10". And I definitely give them a perfect score - "10 out of 10" - because this song will be the next sensation Their single album contains 6 tracks, including "Only You" and "Angel". Their title song "10 points out of 10" is a fusion of rock(ish) guitar ripples, electronica, with a hip-pop beat that shows JYP's daring style.

The music video was created by the same producer, Jang Jae Hyuk, that made the MVs for Wonder Girls and Rain. It was set in the new W hotel in Seoul, showing a chic, trendy vibe. The MV is about the 7 guys in 2PM being awe-strucked by a gorgeous lady that walks into the hotel. They give her a "10 out of 10" for her beauty, simultaneously playing out their erotic fantasies. I feel like I lost my innocence while watching the MV and the lyrics are filled with sexual innuendos. JYP has made 7 dandy clones of himself, liberally indulging in voyeurism and self-titillation. And Wonder Girls' Yoobin makes a sexy entrance at the end, looking smoking HOT! 2PM gives Yoobin a "10 out of 10" and I can't agree more...haha. The girl featured in the MV is Gina Choi, who is Yoobin's friend (both met at Good Entertainment before they moved to JYPE together).

2PM will soon join with 2AM to form a mega boyband, known as "One Day"."

"Lee Minwoo Kisses Junjin at Inauguration of Their Japanese Fanclubs!



To commemorate the inauguration of Shinhwa members Lee Minwoo's and Junjin's Japanese fanclubs, both of them headed to Tokyo on 26 August for a fan event, where more than 1,700 fans gathered at the C.C. Lemon Hall. Both of them said, "It's really great to have our fanclubs set up, and it's great to be here with everyone too. We really wanted to meet everyone, and we hope to be more active in Japan."

The two belong to the same management company and share a close-knit relationship, and it was apparent that both of them really enjoyed themselves at the event. Besides performing Shinhwa hits I Pray 4 You and Eusha Eusha, they were having fun playing around with each other. They also performed their respective solo hits, such as Wa and The M Style. Both of them are due to stage their solo concerts in September in Seoul, and even invited the Japanese fans to attend the concerts.

Junjin will be holding his concert on 5/6 September in Seoul's Melon-AX Hall, while Minwoo's concert, originally slated for 23 August, will be held at Club Answer in Cheongdam-dong on 28 September instead. Explaining the reason for the postponement, Minwoo said "I wanted to ensure that the 4th album is of the best quality, thus I had to delay the release date."

Lee Minwoo further mentioned his plans to hold a concert in Tokyo's JCB Hall on 17/18 December, "As I have to fulfill my responsibilities as a male Korean citizen, that should be the last time I'll be coming to Japan before I enlist for military service, I hope everyone will turn up!" Junjin also talked about his intention of stepping into the field of movies and further expanding his range as an artiste."

"Kim Heechul, “I Cough Out Blood After Each Don’t Don Performance”



“Ya Shim Man Man - Entertainers Village” had Super Junior member, Kim Heechul on the show which was shown last night on a certain tv station where he revealed a sad story that he had coughed out blood while performing.

During the show last night, he revealed that it’s really tough and tiring being a singer. They often have to withstand inhuman stress levels. He also revealed a sad story that he had coughed out blood before while performing on stage.

Kim Heechul recalled when Super Junior was promoting “Don’t Don”, “When we were recording the song ‘Don’t Don’, I was given the latter portion where I had to shout out ‘Super Junior’. I was praised for doing it well by the song composer after finishing my part for the first time. I was full of vigour after that and every time when it was time for us to perform this song, I would scream really hard for my part. But after a few performances, blood started appearing. I would cough out blood after every ‘Don’t Don’ performance.”"

"2PM’s Ock Taek Yeon to host “Pop Magazine”



2PM’s Ock Taek Yeon was chosen to host Mnet’s “Pop Magazine” because of his English skills and knowledge/interest in pop music. It’s rare for such a new comer to host a show all by himself but maybe that’s why JYP call these boys his pride.

Ock Taek Yeon’s “Pop Magazine” will air on Mnet on September 7th at 8 pm."

"DBSK’s 4th album pre-orders break record



Two years after their “O-Union” album, TVXQ is now finally set to release their 4th Korean album!

Amazingly, on the first day, according to SM Entertainment, the number of people that pre-ordered the album broke records. Reportedly the pre-orders were already a whopping 200,000 just on the first day. When TVXQ released their first album (Tri-Angle), it was only 10,000. During their second album (Rising Sun), they got 130,000 pre-orders. On their 3rd album “O-Union” pre-orders on the first 2 days reached 100,000.

TVXQ has been a very busy group. They have been concentrating in Japan for almost a year or two and their popularity has truly skyrocketed across Asia, making international music audiences curious. Now that their 4th album is set for release, not only their Korean fans, but also International fans, are buying the album.

Fans across Korea have been waiting for TVXQ to make a comeback in their homeland. These Korean fans have been anticipating an album release since last year. That much wait must have been frustrating. But fans still show their support and love despite it all. In fact their support seem to have gotten even bigger.

It is expected that TVXQ will take home some prestigious awards by the end of 2008. According to our source, last year’s Golden Disk Awards top record was 150,000 record sales. But now that TVXQ has already received a big 200,000 pre-orders on the first day, what more when the album is officially released? It is predicted that their record sales might even reach to 500,000 or more!

The 4th album release is set for September 2008. TVXQ is now currently busy recording songs for the new album. Fans have been spotting them in and out of SM Entertainment’s office for the past weeks. Reportedly, TVXQ will be releasing a Korean version of their Japanese song Kiss mini coopera Mama Sayonara (As We Kissed Goodbye), which was written and composed by TVXQ members, Micky Yoochun and Hero Jaejoong collaborated on this song.

Indeed, TVXQ is becoming better and better as they grow with their music. They have proved that they deserve more than be called “idols” in Korea. And we already know that they have become more than that."
