[NEWS] 100206 TVXQ and SNSD are Topping Record Store Charts in Philippines

Great news !

After invading the album charts of Odyssey and Music One record stores, TVXQ's "Mirotic Version C" and GIRLS' GENERATION's "Gee" mini-album stormed onto another record store's album chart !
This time both albums entered the album chart of ASTROVISION & ASTROPLUS, one of the country's biggest audio & video ...retail chains with more than 30 stores nationwide. Based on the album chart dated January 25 to February 1, 2010, GIRLS' GENERATION "Gee" ranked at #2 while TVXQ "Mirotic Version C" is at #5 !

This is an amazing achievement for both albums due to the fact that both are considered 'old' K-Pop releases - "Mirotic" was released in 2008 and "Gee" in 2009.

Both albums are also the highest-charting International albums in the Astrovision/Astroplus album chart that week!

2010-02-08 19:24:40


With All My Heart ~君が踊る、夏~ (T/N: Kimiga Odoru, Natsu)

We can now open the information.

Tohoshinki’s new song “With All My Heart ~君が踊る、夏~“ which I’ve written the lyrics, composed, and arranged, will be the theme song for the movie “~君が踊る、夏~”to be released in September. This song is recorded in the BEST SELECTION 2010, which will be released on the 17th this month.

When I was requested of the song, I first thought of all the Tohoshinki fans loving my songs, which I came to know through pigg (T/N: you can create a virtual self in pigg and play in the amelbo world, which his blog belongs to), and all of the fans beyond them.

I would like to give hope to all the fans who are worrying about the contract issues.

The fans’ feelings should be the same as the theme of the movie. I have been thinking like this as I made the love song.

The movie side said “Oh, this is the right one!”, gave out their official go-ahead, and the song was decided as the theme song.

I would be delighted if this song will represent the fans’ feelings, and will also be delighted if the members are thinking the same.

And, moreover, I would be delighted if the movie released in September will create the opportunity for their activities to continue.

It is only a short period until the release of “BEST SELECTION 2010”!

I am also looking forward to the release.



T/N: Approximately 20 hours have passed since this article was posted, and there are over 200 comments, all thanking Inoue for his kind words. I myself was in tears reading and translating this article… thank you very much, Inoue-san!

[NEWS] 100210 Musical shows Mozart’s human side

‘The simplicity of the story highlights the lonely life of the boy genius.’

February 10, 2010
JongAng Daily News

If you’re expecting an epic tale filled with brilliant breakthroughs, tragic love and thrilling rivalries, you won’t find it in the Korean production of the musical “Mozart!” What you will see, however, is a more intimate portrait of the composer and the struggles that he goes through with his family and friends.

“Korean viewers like and may expect to see the rivalry between Antonio Salieri and Mozart, as shown in the movie ‘Amadeus’ - and so did I at first,” says Yoo Hee-sung, the director of the musical who is also the arts director for the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts.

“But as I worked with the story, I began to see that the simplicity of the story highlights the lonely life of the boy genius.”

The musical begins with scenes of Mozart as a young boy as his father pushes him to use his musical gifts to amuse the wealthy. His father’s ambitions continue to constrain him through his young adult years.

The musical uses a couple of innovative devices to help the audience identify with the character.

To portray the inner struggle Mozart was going through during this time, a young child actor appears alongside the adult actor playing Mozart every time the character goes through a difficult time or has a musical breakthrough.

“We see Mozart as a boy and as a young man. By showing the two sides, we see him as human - how much he yearns for his father’s approval and his isolation from the rest of the world,” says the director.

To highlight Mozart’s characteristics as a vibrant and ambitious young man, the adult Mozart is costumed in a tie-dyed shirt and torn jeans, while the rest of the cast is clothed in traditional costumes.

The director also emphasized that it was important to find an actor who could express the powerful energy the character possesses while also showing Mozart’s vulnerability.

“I was looking for witty and unpredictable actors that could also show the sadness Mozart felt within,” Yoo said.

“We have four actors playing the adult Mozart right now and they all bring elements of their own personalities to the character.”

One of the actors signed to play Mozart brought to the production not only his personality but also his star power.

When it was announced that Xiah Jun-su, a member of the popular K-pop boy band, TVXQ, would play the musical’s title character, the show sold out all 45,000 seats of its 15-performance run in just three hours.

“I knew that casting a star like Xiah would have enormous ticket power,” Yoo admitted. “But that’s not the only reason. Idol stars have a way with the public; they know how to melt into the setting that is given to them and they know how to please their fans. Also, casting a young idol as Mozart, an idol from days gone by, creates an interesting clash of old and new.”

The other actors playing the role of Mozart are musical theater actors Im Tae-Kyung, Park Geon-hyeong and Park Eun-tae.

Park Geon-hyeong, who is known for his appearances on television and film, talked about the difficulty of playing the renowned composer.

“I felt the pressure of playing such a famous person, and even though many considered Mozart to be almost godlike because of his talent, I did my best to express his regular side. I tried to express Mozart’s music through my acting.”

The Korean production is one of only five licensed productions of the musical outside of Austria and the first Austrian musical ever shown in Korea, Yoo said. The musical has also been staged in Germany, Sweden, Japan and Hungary.

“The VBW [Vereinigte Buhnen Wien, or United Stages Vienna, which holds the production rights] only allows theaters with the highest quality to produce the work and it is very fussy about the conditions in which the musical can be presented,” he added.

“Mozart!” will run until Feb. 21 at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts, near Gwanghwamun Station, line No. 5, exit 1 or 8. Tickets range from 20,000 won ($17) to 130,000 won. For more information, visit www.musicalmozart.co.kr.

[NEWS] 100210 Girls' Generation’s Ideal Man: Actor Song Seunghun, Yunho Semi-Finalist


Manila Bulletin Publishing Corporation
February 10, 2010, 9:08am

Girls Generation chose 33-year-old actor Song Seunghun as their ideal man. You would think that members of girl group Girls Generation would be attracted to guys that also belong to K-pop groups, or at the very least those within their age level.

Wrong.

Instead, the nine members of Girls Generation chose 33-year-old actor Song Seunghun as their ideal man.

The girls — Taeyeon, Sunny, Seohyun, Yoona, Yuri, Sooyoung, Hyoyeon, Jessica and Tiffany — were the guests on the Korean TV program “Sweet Night” last February 7, 2010.

In the program, they were asked to select their ideal man by pitting two male idols through a knockout type selection. The girls were made to choose among Super Junior’s Siwon and Heechul, 2PM’s Nichkhun and Taecyeon, SHINee’s Minho, Big Bang’s G-Dragon and TOP, TVXQ’s Yunho, SS501’s Kim Hyun Joong, Lee Seungki, Jang Geun-suk, Kim Namgil and Song Seunghun. (*Yunho semi-finalist.)

In the end, the girls chose Song.

Song starred in “Autumn Fairy Tale” and “Scent of Summer,”. He also starred in the drama series “East of Eden”, “Law Firm” and “City of God.”

His role in “East of Eden,” allowed Song to win the Daesang and Popularity Awards in the 2008 MBC Drama Awards. He was also awarded Most Popular Actor and Photogenic in the 2000 KBS Acting Awards.

On the same show, people who became part of their lives before and after they became idols also surprised the girls.

One of them was a manager from a Chinese restaurant that delivered food to Girls Generation for seven years. A fan of Yuri, the manager would always provide free dishes to all the members because of her idol.

There was also a soldier who had a crush on Hyoyeon in grade school, admitting that she was the first person to make him cry. The reason? He was so sad that he won’t be able to see Hyoyeon anymore after graduation.
Hyoyeon was able to identify him from the five soldiers who were presented in the show.

[TRANS] 100211 Shinjiroh Inoue Blog Update

T/N: This is an update of the article here. For this previous article, there are now more than 480 comments, all thanking Inoue-san for his kind supports to Tohoshinki and for the lovely new song, “With All My Heart ~君が踊る、夏~, which he has written the lyrics, composed, and also arranged.

2010-02-10 21:33:15
Thank you

Thank you very much for all of your comments, the numbers are far beyond the comments for a composer’s blog!

I never thought that my article would be a help to anyone, so I thought once again “It was a good thing that I continued writing in my blog.”

I have read all of your comments!

All of your passions have been conveyed to me, and I myself became warm at heart, and also in tears.

Thank you very much!

I will do my best so that I can bring good news to you, so please support me!

Today, I had a meeting for the Lambsey live performance in CLUB CHITTA’ KAWASAKI, scheduled to be held in less than 2 months.

This is a summary of our street live, so the acoustic instruments are a must.

But since we can perform in CITTA, I want to perform closely with the live bands.

Now, it seems that Tohoshinki and Lambsey are inseparable, and many fans came to know Lambsey through Tohoshinki. So we will create a corner for the songs which we have provided to them, and sing the songs by ourselves.

The actual set list will be decided later, and we do not know how it will come out, but I will start moving to get off the ground.

I will inform you of the details when fixed!

Of course, we could not inform you of the set list. (Lol)

This is the final sprint, so I have to do my best!

I need 800 more people…


T/N: Answering to the questions raised below :
1. Lambsey is a an artist group of avex, members are Shinjiroh Inoue (Produce, Arrange, Guitars, Instrumentals) and Yuki Yamashita (vocal). As Lambsey, they have written the lyrics for "Doushite kimiwo~" and "Bolero".
2. 800 people... Lambsey is going to have their concert in CITTA KAWASAKI on March 26. I went to the CITTA'S HP and found that the hall holds up to 1300 people when standing...so it seems that 500 tickets are sold out, and he needs 800 more to fill the hall. I believe many Tohoshinki fans will go to the concert, hearing that Lambsey will sing the songs they have provided to Tohoshinki.
