"Updates"
Saturday, September 13, 2008

(Just a few brief updates today!)




1) The Chuseok special will include a show of physical strength, behind the scenes segments, couple duets and couple games. Hyun Joong seems to be rather competitive in all the games (which is really normal for the Lettuce couple!) and the highlight of the day, for me at least, is that Hwang Bo will be performing her techtonik dance with Hyun Joong, who will perform a rock performance.


2) Hwang Bo had an interview about her Guess 'Love Your Body' campaign, and Hyun Joong appears in the last bit of the video. And unfortunately, she didn't know that he was shooting the campaign as well, so they did not appear together. Skittles+ Blurry subbed the video already, and I decided to post it up here, just to make it look pretty!



3) Lots of people are hoping that Hyun Joong gets cast for Hana Yori Dango, which is scheduled for release at the end of the year or next (exact date to be announced). No confirmation has been made about him and joining the drama though.



4) The one thing that has been confirmed is that Hyun Joong will be making his comeback with the rest of the SS501 boys this October. They will be releasing their 3rd album them, so be prepared for more news regarding Hyun Joong and the SS501 boys!

KBS and MBC Starts Cracking Down on Variety Shows?

Following the unfortunate crackdown of their variety shows on video sharing websites like Youtube, Veoh, etc by SBS International back in July 2008, it appears that KBS America and MBC are also starting to lay claim to their variety shows with crackdowns of their own which begun just 3 days ago.

“We Got Married” was licensed recently on Crunchyroll and access to it is now denied. If you notice, it did not specify who the license holder is, probably because it didn’t want to suffer a backlash. According to Youtomb website, standyary who used to upload “We Got Married” on Youtube got her account suspended not too long ago thanks to a copyright claim from MBC.co.kr.

The same goes for KBS variety shows which is being acted on by KBS America, Inc. and has affected htruc who used to upload “1N2D” on Youtube but her account has been suspended three days ago. Better start saving clips from Youtube now just in case it spreads to other users whom I am not naming.

Some have opted to private their videos or rename the videos cryptically, for example “We Got Married” becomes “W.G.M”. I don’t see how it is going to work in the long-term because sooner or later, all it takes is for one video to be spotted by one of their copyright snitchers and the rest is history.

So where does this all lead to? One of my Korean friends told me that tv shows were all free to watch in Korea back in the good ol’ days. Until one day, SBS started charging a fee for their archived shows. KBS and MBC soon followed suit. This crackdown on variety shows is following the same pattern.

There should be no complaints really since it’s their videos and by right the copyright belongs to them. But what are we normal users that don’t live in Korea to do? They don’t sell the variety shows with subtitles and not even the unsubbed ones by any chance. Have you ever heard of anyone selling variety shows like these at all? Dramas are copyrighted because they do sell them with english subs legally but variety shows? There’s KBS World which broadcasts to most of the world including Singapore but not all their variety shows are subtitled. MBC America and SBS Intl. only broadcasts in limited areas.

They could try learning from music companies like YG Entertainment, JYP Entertainment or even MNet who uses Youtube as a platform to reach out to the masses. There is a ready platform, why don’t they make use of it?

The landscape has changed drastically in any entertainment industry today. To become a popular star, appearing in variety shows and presenting another side of you will greatly improve your chances. Fans these days wants to know their idols more in terms of what they do, think, etc. Just being able to sing well doesn’t really make you popular. If you think this is just restricted to Korea, think again. Kim Jong Kook is known by someone like me in a far-away country because he appeared in Xman. The same goes for other celebrities.

Taking Seo In Young as an example, she can sing well but she only enjoyed moderate success. But factor in the success of Jewelry’s “One More Time” plus her appearances on “Seo In Young KAIST” reality show and of course “We Got Married” this year, her popularity has grown in leaps and bounds.

Enjoy what’s still left before it’s all gone, people.

WGM: "In preparation for the new generation,"
Friday September 12, 2008 Korea




WGM is carefully planning for the new generation of WGM.

The production team of WGM is giving the current couples, Andy-Solbi, Crown J- So In Young, Alex- Shin Ae and Hyun Joong- Hwang Bo, missions for a farewell holiday which will be done in their own style for them to prepare for their farewell.

Andy and Solbi are the first ones to bid farewell, and are currently filming their farewell holiday concept. With the completion of this episode, the both of them will announce their decision to leave the show during the filming of the studio shoot.

The production of WGM communicated with Newsen via telephone and said that they felt that they needed new people for the program and that it is still undecided as to how many couples will leave the program. They also said that once it's been decided which couples will leave the show, one or two couples from the Chuseok special can join as regular cast.

*Credits: Newsen*
translations: allseouldout


I guess this will happen eventually. Cuz a show really cant last long if the casts are the same, despite their popularity. I tink i will drop the show when all the regular couples now are replaced. ARGH. =(

i will be emo-ing on the day andy-solbi and joonbo leaves =(

Alex have to drop most of his activity ( yes WGM included ) due to overworked and He'll be leaving obviously, so does Shin Ae. and Andy Solbi are done too. and What's the reason for Crown J and SIY to leave? and JOONGBO? they are way too early to be separated. they just starting to get along GEEZZZZ..

FINE..I know that this will happen because of the new couple. and I wish them all the luck they can get, with the super low rating for the "new couple"
as soon as all the original couple left. specially JOONGBO, then I will not watch wgm anymore..

"Overworked singer needs a break"
September 14th, 2008 // by javabeans




“I’ll return after taking a break for a while.”

Clazziquai vocalist Alex is putting a halt to most of his broadcast appearances, he explained.

He’s been worn out from overwork — promoting his solo album, appearing on MBC’s We Got Married, radio DJ-ing, and doing Mnet’s M Countdown program, among others. Now all that stress is being exacerbated by recent pains to a disc in his back, and the bodily injury comes as a sign that he’s reached a limit. With the exception of his “fixed program” schedule, the busy MC host/radio DJ/singer/sometime actor won’t be doing any other television work for a while.

According to Alex’s rep, he’ll only be working on a performance planned for the end of September in Pusan, and return to television after he’s received some medical treatment and plenty of rest. (Thank goodness someone has the sense to stop before serious injury rather than waiting till they collapse like so many others.)
