Official poster for musical “Goong” [Group 8]

The musical adaptation of hit TV series “Goong” will show overseas next year, according to the musical’s producer Group 8 on Wednesday.

Park Rae-hyun, a PR official from Group 8 told 10Asia over the phone that producers will take the show to countries outside of Asia, starting with Japan, in January 2010.

He added that the company has yet to decide on the official dates and locations for its overseas run — details for its showing throughout South Korea will be set first.

In Seoul, the musical will run at the National Museum of Korea from September 8 to October 24 and continue on into other provinces in the country until the end of the year.

U-Know Yunho, Kim Dong-ho and RUN will play the lead crown prince role of Lee Shin and actresses Gwak Sun-young and Shin Eui-jung will take over the role of the tomboyish Chae-kyeong.


“Goong,” originally based on the best selling comic series of the same name, is about an average high-school girl marrying a royal prince in 21st century Korea, which is in fiction a monarchical country.

It was adapted for the small screen in 2006 and was a huge hit in the country recording viewership ratings in the high 30 percent mark and turning the two leads, Yoon Eun-hye and Joo Ji-hoon, into household names.

The drama was sold to 23 countries including China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and the United States, creating a Hallyu craze among the fans, particularly in Asia.

[Project] Aethiopeia is holding a 7th Anniversary Project

[PROJECT FAITH***] Aethiopeia is holding a 7th Anniversary Project in dedication to the boys for their epically awesome hard work and encouragement. Here’s the brief detail about it:

In due time it will be given to them with the messages and video messages from fans across North America.
(***note that the name is still temporary until others have sent in ideas for its name then we’ll be holding a poll for it)

INFORMATION:

* Scrapbook + DVD gift set for their 7th anniversary
* For each month, it is dedicated to two members: July – Yunho & Jaejoong; August – Yoochun & Junsu; September – Changmin & DBSK. Eventually each member gets their own section of the scrapbook and in the end is about the boys as a whole with unity.
* (text) Messages will be on a scrapbook while both text and video messages will be on DVD
* If you’re wondering how we’re going to give them their gifts when its a 3:2 ordeal, the scrapbook & DVD will be split into 2 with the same information for both groups.
* Video messages are no longer than 1 minute, it can be in group or as a solo.**
* Pictures of yourself with your fave albums, design work (i.e. artwork, graphic design work) and whatnot are welcome.**
* Donations are welcome! Email for more inquiries!
* North American fans are only allowed to do this project as it is we’re representing North America with its complex and beautiful diversity.

DEADLINE FOR EACH COUPLE: July 01-25, August 01-25, September 01-25
*Once everything is set up and ready to be sent, I will be taking photos of the project prior to its mailing to Avex & SM and/or through the member’s personal stores run by them and their family.

As so we do not get confused, the reason why we’re doing 2 members a month is because we’ll be sending it in October as I know someone who will be going to Korea and Japan so she is able to send it for us.

An even detailed information is on the forum through here (you must be a member to see the project):

[News] TVXQ to release special Japanese album on July 15

[Korean boy band TVXQ [SM Entertainment]

Korean idol group TVXQ will be releasing a special Japanese DVD album on July 15, according to Japanese daily newspaper Sankei Sports on Wednesday.

Sankei reported that the group, despite having halted all group activities, will release a special album in DVD format with highlights from the upcoming Japanese film “Kimi Ga Odoru, Natsu” which also includes an advance ticket for the movie.

The boy band’s song “With All My Heart” is featured as the theme song for “Kimi Ga Odoru, Natsu,” set to hit theaters in September.

“The members of the group are currently working on individual projects but they have prepared this surprise for their fans,” an associate from Sankei explained, adding that the album will go on sale on July 15 although there are no plans for it to be sold as a single album.

The theme song “With All My Heart” is one of the tracks from their best album “Best Selection 2010,” which was released in February, and the latest version has been rearranged with a simple piano instrumental. The special album will also include three different versions of the song.

TVXQ has halted all activities as a five-man band with Xiah, Hero and Micky applying for provisional disposition of their 13-year contract with SM last July. They then filed a lawsuit against SM last week, demanding they be confirmed their contract had been nullified as well as be handed their share of profits they claim to have failed to receive.

The three singers formed a new trio away from their original band TVXQ with Japanese agency AVEX a few months ago.

SM too has sued the three singers for the damages the agency and the remaining two members, U-Know Yunho and Max Changmin, have suffered from the legal battle.

Since their 2004 debut, TVXQ, discovered and managed by SM, had arguably been one of the most successful K-pop acts in Asia with reportedly the largest fanbase in the world.

[Trans] 100706 The “Kimura Takuya of Korea” – Stars Who Can Sing, Dance & Act Successively Land In Japan

There is a saying that all popular Korean actors are “good singers”. In Korea, Yoon Sang-Hyun is also one of those stars, with his daily TV drama [My Wife Is Superwoman], that made a big hit, breaking records of over 30% viewership ratings.

Hailed as the “Kimura Takuya of Korea” because of his looks, Yoon Sang-Hyun, who was also an aspiring singer from the start, sang the song [Never Ending Story] in the same drama, charming viewers with his impressive vocal talent. On the day it was released in Korea, it became the number one topic on various music charts.

Following that, in March this year, he made his long-desired debut as a singer in Japan with the cover of Yasushi Nakanishi’s song [最後の雨] (t/n: Saigo no Ame/LAST RAIN). He also released his second single [誓い] (t/n: Chikai/Oath) recently, gaining further momentum as a singer. Besides Sang-Hyun, a lot of actors sing OSTs for dramas, sing songs that they are proud of to the fans that attend fansign events in Japan, and it seems like being good at singing is becoming one of the prerequisites to become a popular actor.

Also, as opposed to “actors who are good at singing” like Sang-Hyun, the Korean entertainment industry is growing such that there is an increase in “singers who can act”. Recently, KPOP artists have been advancing in Japan in succession and there have been many singers who pursue their acting careers concurrently with their singing careers. Tohoshinki’s Jejung acted in the Japanese drama 「素直になれなくて」 (t/n: Sunao ni narenakute/Hard to say I love you) (Fuji TV) and the drama [No Limit~地面にヘディング~] (t/n: No Limit~Jimen ni hedingu~/No Limit~Heading to the ground), in which Yunho starred as the lead actor, achieved #1 on the Oricon DVD Ranking for dramas.

BIGBANG’s T.O.P was also selected as the main cast for the drama [IRIS] (TBS) and the movie [Into the fire], which is currently airing. Also, from FTIsland, who made their major debut in Japan in May, Lee Hongki’s [You're Beautiful], SS501′s Kim Hyunjoong’s [花より男子~Boys Over Flowers] (t/n: Hana yori dango); from SNSD, who will make their Japanese debut in August, Yoona’s [You're My Destiny] and [Cinderella Man]; all of these became hits.

They can sing, dance and even act. The advancement of such talented Korean stars is unstoppable. [Try Works]

[Trans] 100705 Xiah Junsu hospitalized in LA

TVXQ group member Xiah Junsu was hospitalized in Los Angeles at around 10 PM on the 3rd.

Xiah Junsu had been suffering from a very high fever and fatigue since the afternoon. Staff members and company associates rushed him to the ER as his symptoms began to worsen. An associate of Xiah Junsu stated, “Xiah Junsu was hospitalized to a hospital in Koreatown in Los Angeles at around 10PM on the 3rd local time, or 2PM on the 4th of Korean time. Because it was the weekend, we tried over 20 hospitals before finally finding a hospital where he could receive proper treatment.”

Xiah Junsu has been busy with recording schedules, and as a result he continued getting a high fever and fatigue. At first, they didn’t think much of the situation because his symptoms were that of a common cold, but as the night went on, his symptoms worsened and he was then taken to the ER. When he reached the hospital, his fever reached over 40C. After receiving emergency care and some shots he has stabilized. This associate says, ” Xiah Junsu, plus the other 2 members are in America to record their album, and they have been pouring out their passion into the recordings. Thinking of meeting their fans after such a long time with their music, they became overenthusiastic and sang repeatedly without rest, and now their body has shown these signs of fatigue.”

The three members, including Xiah Junsu were hit hard with the shocking news of Park Yong Ha’s death. This associate said, “Hero Jaejoong was very close friends with Park Yong Ha, so the news gave him great mental shock and he was unable to even speak for awhile. All three members have been becoming more and more fatigued and even when staff members around them advised them to rest, they were concentrated in recording and in result their health has deteriorated to the point of finding the ER.”

The management side says that for Xiah Junsu’s treatment, they will take a 2 days rest.

Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun and Hero Jaejoong are currently in America recording with Kanye West, who has a great influence in pop music. Kanye West, who was born in 1977, has won 13 Grammy Awards and is a famous Rapper/Producer in America. He has produced music for the albums of Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, and Janet Jackson. The three members of TVXQ are the first to work with a major pop artist and producer like Kanye West. Because of this, many people are looking forward to what kind of product is released from this collaboration.
