[NEWS] 120727 TEEN TOP’s Niel breaks SHINee Minho’s record in high jump on ‘Idol Star Olympics’

Niel has secured the gold medal in high jump on MBC‘s ‘Idol Star Olympics‘, which aired on the 26th.
The highest record of 173 cm in high jump was set by SHINee‘s Minho previously, and the the competing athletes this time around were not only trying for a gold medal but also were trying their hands at setting a new record.

B1A4‘s Sandeul, INFINITE‘s Sungyeol, TEEN TOP‘s Ricky, and 2AM‘s Jinwoon all made valiant attempts, but unfortunately got caught on the bar at 170 cm. However, TEEN TOP’s Niel easily jumped over the bar and clinched the gold medal.

However, Niel didn’t stop there as he challenged himself to break Minho’s record and proved to be successful as he raised the bar, setting a new record of 174 cm for these ‘Idol Star Athletic Championship’ events.

After confirming the new record, the broadcasters jumped up cheering, and fellow TEEN TOP members ran to Niel to share his happiness.

Niel jokingly provoked Minho’s competitive nature by commenting, “I want to meet with SHINee’s Minho sunbae.” “Please give me a cell phone right now,” he pleaded to his agency’s boss, Shinhwa‘s Andy.

The well-known all-around ‘athlete-idols’, SHINee‘s Minho and Z:EA‘s Dongjun, will finally be going head to head in the MBC‘s ‘Idol Star Olympics‘!

The ‘Idol Star Olympics’ being held in commemoration of the 2012 London Olympics (normally called ‘Idol Star Athletic Championship’), will finally decide for once and for all the champion of the 110 meter hurdle event

[INFO] 120724 Sulli and Minho’s First Meeting on ‘To the Beautiful You’

New preview still cuts released by SBS are showing the first meeting between Sulli and Minho’s characters in their upcoming drama.

Dressed in their characters′ school uniforms of full suits and ties, Minho’s Kang Tae Joon is seen playing with the dog Sangchu as the short-haired Koo Jae Hee (Sulli) emerges from within Sangchu’s doghouse. Koo Jae Hee is seen latching onto Kang Tae Joon’s arm before Kang Tae Joon coldly pulls his arm away and inspects Koo Jae Hee’s nametag.

The scenes for the upcoming SBS drama To the Beautiful You were shot on July 12 on a university campus in Gyeonggi-do’s Icheon.

The two displayed remarkable differences between when the cameras were rolling and when they weren’t as the two would focus entirely on portraying their awkward and chilly relationship when the cameras were on but immediately become relaxed and playful when the cameras stopped filming.

In between takes, the two were also seen frequently discussing their scenes, in order to perfect their acting and scenes together.

A source close to the production shared, “Sulli and Minho are endlessly discussing their characters and matching each other to do their best to ensure a more natural acting. Please continue to monitor Sulli and Minho who will soon stand before viewers with an entirely new appearance.”

To the Beautiful You will premiere on SBS on August 15.

[NEWS] 120722 An internet cafe caught red-handed for selling idol stars’ personal info

A cafe within an internet portal site has come under fire for buying and selling the cell phone numbers, social security numbers, and Kakao Talk IDs of idols such as TVXQ, JYJ, and SHINee. In addition, buyers were even able to attain the phone numbers of the artists’ managers or close acquaintances through the website.
Exact prices were not specified, but it is said that the price of each piece of information differed greatly depending on the idol group.

As controversy over the site began to grow, access to the cafe was finally blocked.

Netizens who came across the shocking news stated, “It’s a pity their personal information is leaked just because they are celebrities. Although they are public figures, I think we should protect their privacy”, “Buying another copy of their album would be much more helpful to the artist than buying their social security number”, and “That’s crossing the line of fandom and approaching criminal offense. I hope they realize that sometimes less is more and that their actions can actually be a disservice to the idols they admire”.

[NEWS] 120722 SHINee at SWC II Press Conference

SHINee talks about sharing concert dates with MBLAQ

At the July 22nd press conference for their concert, ‘SHINee WORLD II‘, SHINee explained that they had wanted to attend fellow boy group MBLAQ‘s concert.

During the press conference, a reporter asked, “MBLAQ is currently holding a concert at the same time as you are. Do you feel like they are your rivals in any way?” to which SHINee responded, “We’re very close to the MBLAQ members. We have actually been talking a lot about their concert.

They continued, “We invited MBLAQ to our concert, and in return, they invited us to their own. But we discovered that it was being held at the same time as ours, so we were really disappointed.

Member Jonghyun added, “That’s why we joked amongst ourselves that we should end our concert quickly and go see the MBLAQ concert,” showing just how close the two groups are.

SHINee, currently wrapping up their Seoul concert, will head to Taipei, Singapore, and major cities in Asia to continue their tour.

SHINee's Taemin bares his abs in his unconventional fashion style

On the 21st of July, the members of SHINee attended the press conference prior to their SHINee World Concert II and on the red carpet, one particular member received much attention for his wardrobe and that is Taemin. With SHINee's contemporary style as a group, they have shown various out of the ordinary get ups, but perhaps Taemin's outfit was one of the most odd.

Taemin showed up wearing an unconventional top and jeans, his top was a long sleeve with half of his abs showing and his black jeans with a folded polo sewn to it. The maknae looked hot and masculine but you can't help but raise eyebrows with this odd ensemble. What do you think?

[Concert Review] Welcome to SHINee World

It was a concert that showed why SHINee describes itself as a ‘contemporary group.’

SHINee invited its audience to a 190-minute-long tour through its SHINee World theme park and had everyone cheering in satisfaction.

In its SHINee World 2 concert held on July 22 in Seoul, SHINee flew through the air, jumped around like beasts with bare chests and handcuffs and spurted blood after a gun and swordfight, putting on a perfect, fantasy theme park show.

The concert processions were so fantastic, even the small mistakes seemed like they were part of the show.

For example, the staff’s hands that were accidentally shown grabbing onto Jonghyun’s ankle when he went backstage, after flying through the air, looked like the devil′s hands pulling an angel into hell.

In the intro, the five SHINee members landed on earth after a meteorite collision and traveled through space, African jungles, medieval times, underwater, a city of the night, high schools and prisons, transcending time and space.

Jonghyun said at the press roundtable held before the concert that the concert was “a show that can be seen at a theme park” and that those who were there for it “will be able to go home with smiles on their faces.”

It didn’t take long to figure out what he meant. The three-level stage mechanism that continued to rise and fall with each performance helped the members fly through the air, disappear under the stage, appear on water and hide behind burning flames.

Other stage settings such as the 17-meter-long LED screen, two live screens, wires, a turntable and lifts, as well as the laser, magic and fountain effects all helped make the SHINee World theme park believable.

The genre of the concert also dived and surged like a roller coaster, going from sci-fi to swordfight action, campus romance, mystery, comedy, adventure and thriller.

The audience not only got wads of SHINee money, they were hit with blasts of water, surprised by the flames and confetti and melted at the members’ cute moves.

The 29 songs SHINee performed on this day, from the second album’s promotional single Lucifer to its last encore piece Life, were bittersweet.

The members led the theme park tour and plunged its pearl aqua green audience into a world of fantasy and light.

The five solo performances and the group′s first performance of the Korean version of Seesaw, a single from its first Japan album, were like bonuses that satisfied the audience.

SHINee had the crowd going wild with a concert full of sights to see, as if it was determined to pour everything it had into that one performance.

After a placard event the fans put on, in which they held up placards reading ‘I’ll love you tomorrow, too,’ Minho said, “We’ll continue to deliver good music, so please continue to love us,” and Jonghyun showed tears while he said, “I’m so thankful for your unwavering love.”

The audience answered their thanks and the great performance with a big “I love you.”

[NEWS] 120722 SHINee World II in Seoul 2 Press Conference Interview

A press conference was held prior to SHINee’s concert “SHINee WORLD II in SEOUL” on July 22 at 4PM in the Seoul Olympic Park Gymnasium. Maybe it’s because they already saw their fans yesterday, but their faces were full of easygoing smiles.

- How does it feel to perform?
We’re holding our second concert in Korea. We named it as an extension of our last concert and it means that we’re showing a world that’s just for us. Since we worked hard to prepare, I believe many people will go home smiling. I hope they’ll anticipate it a lot. (Jonghyun)

- Hidden weapon of the concert?
The scale is bigger and there are more events compared to our first concert. If I say it more specifically, it will be a spoiler but there’s a performance that will make you feel like you’re watching a show at an amusement. (Jonghyun)

For our solo stages, we prepared something that each of us are good at and can show properly. Please look forward to our solo stages and of course our group performances as well. (Minho)

The main focus of the stages were the song but there were parts when we did some fun things through performance. (Onew)

I’ve prepared a joint performance with a member. (Jonghyun)

- You did an arena tour.
The synchronization between the members improved and we learned how to sync with the audience. It was a great experience. (Minho)

- You cried hard during the concert on the 21st.
I cried because it was a happy day. I wasn’t thinking “I should cry” but I cried. The fans prepared an event and it was really touching. It wasn’t just me, but everyone cried. I think we cried because we’re thankful to our fans. (Jonghyun)

I think I shed tears because of the fans’ gift. (Taemin)

- Why do you think you’re loved by international fans?
I think it’s because of our overseas activities and performance experience. Since we are a group that introduces K-pop, I think we need to go on stage being careful. Not only did we learn how to synchronize with each other and learn languages, but we also learned how to receive energy. (Jonghyun)

- Will you have chances to meet fans in the future?
We’ll show more performances as much as we are a group that creates and leads trends. We’ll meet many fans through the tour, concert, and such. (Jonghyun)

- Is Minho’s drama filming going well?
I’ll be playing the protagonist of the SBS TV drama “For You In Full Blossom”. I hope you’ll look forward to the high jump scenes while watching the drama. It’s my first time doing something like this so please watch over me a lot. I’m still aiming for the high jump record. Maybe that’s why I haven’t been doing well. My best record so far is 175cm. I jumped about Jonghyun’s height. (Minho)

- Feeling of seeing hoobaes as a senior?
We have male hoobaes now. Because we have new hoobaes, I felt that we had to show an even more passionate performance. (Minho)

Just like how we practiced and learned a lot by watching our sunbaes, I hope our hoobaes can do the same as they watch us. (Jonghyun)

120719 Alternative careers best suited for today’s top male idols?

What could today’s top idol leaders be doing if they were not efficiently leading their group members to success in the K-Pop industry?

Korean netizens seemed to have a good idea, as an online post titled ‘Male Idol Group Leaders’ Potential Careers Based On Appearance’ heated up the online community boards. The post listed some alternative occupations they felt would best suit their favorite male idol leaders, based on their individual image.

To start, they suggested Super Junior‘s Leeteuk to become a language instructor at an academy, as he is extremely well-spoken and an expert when it comes to hosting variety programs.

They further suggested that Big Bang‘s multi-talented leader G-Dragon to open up his own dance studio, while stating that the amiable and gentle Onew of SHINee would serve as a good departmental student representative.

The outgoing Jo Kwon of 2AM was thought to be the perfect guy to bring along on overnight college trips, as he easily creates a hilarious and fun atmosphere with his personality. Fans also felt B2ST‘s leader Yoon Doojoon was the perfect person to become a physical education instructor, and that the suave Jung Yonghwa of CNBLUE has the image of ‘that handsome oppa’ at church.

Can you imagine the idols taking on these roles? What else could you envision these leaders doing? Let us know below!
