[NEWS] Teen Top, from fighting on air to a surprise kiss ‘extreme teamwork’!

The Teen Top members displayed their extreme teamwork from fighting on air to a surprise kiss.

In the recent recording of SBS MTV ‘Teen Top Rising 100% - War against Issue’, Teen Top leader C.A.P gave Ricky a kick as punishment had caught everyone’s attention. When MC Taehyun asked “Although you guys have great teamwork normally, if there is a member you want to leave out in Teen Top, who would it be?”, without any hesitation, Ricky replied C.A.P. Hence C.A.P took his revenge.

Not only that, C.A.P gave Ricky a kick as punishment once again when Ricky started making weird noises during the mouth-to-mouth passing paper game. C.A.P was exceptionally firm only towards Ricky. When MC Taehyun asked “What’s the reason for being so strict with Ricky only” and C.A.P replied “Because I treasure Ricky”, showing his unique affection.

On the other hand, continuing from last week’s battle to become ‘the in-trend guy whom people want to go on a summer holiday with’, in episode 6 of SBS MTV ‘Teen Top Rising 100% - War against Issue’, the final mission is the game of luck cooking battle. They have to play several games in order to earn the ingredients needed for the cooking battle. In the mouth-to-mouth passing paper game, Teen Top shocked the staff on site with their powerful suction like that of a vacuum cleaner. In addition, during the game, maknae line Ricky and Changjo lips had almost touched due to an accident occurring, which brought laughter to the set.

You can check out Teen Top leader C.A.P’s unique expression of affection for Ricky and maknae line Ricky & Changjo’s surprise kiss accident on SBS MTV ‘Teen Top Rising 100% - War against Issue’ 21st, 9PM KST.

We always thought she (Minzy) was only good at singing and dancing. But judging from the artwork she randomly draws and scribbles during her alone-time, you can tell she has extraordinary artistic dexterity. We also thought that the only genre of music she would ever know and love was Hip-Hop, but she has recently been falling into the sounds of Rock and Roll as well. Now we know the exact reason why 2NE1 is called a group of “artists”. But out of the four members, Minzy’s cultural sensibility is even more than what we expected… and so are the artworks she has drawn herself with her favorites musicians as motives.

While working as 2NE1, I really enjoy listening to Hip-Hop often. But I also really enjoy listening to the sounds of Rock. And of all the Rock music I listen to, RADIOHEAD is a group that no one can replace in my heart. They are also a group of musicians who are so great that I could never forget to include in my playlists. I’m disappointed that I will not be able to attend the Jisan Valley Rock Festival, in which I chose Radiohead as my #1 priority to see, because it overlaps with our 2NE1 concert. If only I had the time, I would definitely go…. there will come a day when I’ll be able to watch Radiohead live with my own eyes, right?

Michael Jackson is the world’s greatest artist that everyone respects. Even his greatest classics, gestures, and strong sense of fashion are well-respected. I bet there isn’t a single person who hasn’t attempted the moonwalk as a child. Especially the scene in his “Smooth Criminal” music video where he looks like he’s about to fall over, I think I watched that part over 100 times in one sitting. When it comes to Michael Jackson music videos, I’ve watched every single one of them so many times to the point I’ve memorized them all. He is an artist that has given me an enormous amount of influence with his many dances. I remember crying a lot while watching the scene in his movie where he dances to Billy Jean for the last time before his death. I think I might listen and dance to Michael Jackson even when I become a grandmother.

When I listen to the guitar riff that comes out in the beginning of Nirvana’s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, I feel like my heart is going to explode. I also think there is a strong spell that cannot be forgotten when listening to Kurt Cobain’s voice in their classic ‘Come As You Are’. I became a fan the very moment I first listened to Nirvana’s music. From records to DVDs, I have collected everything related to Nirvana. And I’ll say this for future reference, my ideal man is Kurt Cobain. How great would it have been if Nirvana still performed until this very day and had a world tour? I know for sure that I would have followed them around, like a groupie, to every nook and cranny of the world just to hear them live.

Rolling Stones is practically another word for “Rock N Roll” and also the #1 musician of my life. I have drawn several pictures using lips and mouths as a motive in the past, and I think it’s safe to say that I was greatly influenced by the witty Rolling Stones tongue symbol. I know they are a group that came into being way before I was even born, but Mick Jagger was extremely charismatic and charming when he was young. Even his unique and famous groove moves were impressive. If you watch the DVD of the Rolling Stones’ commemorative concert for Brian Jones at Hyde Park in 1969, you’ll be able to see and realize just how explosive and popular they were back then. It’s one of the few DVDs I cherish the most because it perfectly captures the Rolling Stones members, their hundreds and thousands of fans, and also the fashion trend back in 1969.

Q: Have you been learning and receiving art lessons since the past?
A: Ever since I was little, I attended an art center similar to a daycare for kids. Thanks to those art lessons, I hadn’t forgotten about or let go of art, even up until I reached middle school and high school. However, I am only enjoying art and drawing as a hobby because I still think music is the more suitable path for me.

Q: I think you are good enough to become an illustrator in the future.
A: I really like rock bands, especially the Rolling Stones. And I also love Andy Worhol’s Marilyn Monroe print. So by combining the two, I would often get inspired to draw Marilyn Monroe’s beauty mark (mole) to my Rolling Stones-inspired lip drawings. Whenever I’m feeling tired or getting stressed, I like to cram myself into my room and just draw. That eventually helps release all the stress away.

Q: When people think of 2NE1, the first thing that pops into their mind is a hip-hop genre based group. But surprisingly, you have more of a rock-spirit than the others. Are there any musicians you are inspired by on a daily basis?
A: I love hip-hop, of course. But I have recently been focusing on rock sounds more. I like the Rolling Stones, Nirvana, and Guns N’ Roses a lot. I’m sad because I wasn’t able to go to a Lenny Kravitz concert when he visited Korea not long ago because I had other schedules to attend. I also want to go see Radiohead at the upcoming Jisan Valley Rock Restival, but I’m disappointed that I’m not going to be able to go because it overlaps with our concert.

Q: Aside from music, what are some other cultural aspects have you been fixiated on?
A: I’ve been falling deeply for the fun in reading lately. I recently read Guillaume Musso’s in no time because I couldn’t stop reading it; it was that good.

Q: I also heard you really enjoy movies.
A: I was so intrigued by that I rewatched it over 300 times. Whether it be artistic value, literary value, or mass appeal, there isn’t a single thing about that I would criticize. I think it’s the greatest movie that has ever captured an extreme measure. The scene that leaves the greatest impression is when the flowers are planted and Sting’s ‘Shape of My Heart’ begins to play in the background; I cried so much at this scene. It was so sad. My heart hurt so much. I cried so much as if I had become Matilda (character in the movie) myself and everyone seemed surprised.

Q: Do you usually watch a movie by engaging your full emotions?
A: I don’t really have many tears, nor do I cry often. I watched with Bom and she sat beside me bawling the whole time. I kept thinking to myself ‘why is she crying?’ and felt completely fine throughout the whole movie. That’s why the people around me kept teasing, “You’re so cold-blooded.” But I cry every time I watch .

Q: I recently watched and cried because I was so absorbed in the science fiction….
A: Oh, then have you seen ? Isn’t it really fun? I feel like we have similar taste.

Q: Then what other social activities do you often enjoy?
A: I usually watch movies all the time. There was a time when I didn’t have any schedules, so I practically lived at the movie theater for a whole week.

Q: Ultimately, what kind of artist do you aim to become?
A: I want be an entertainer that doesn’t just work in one specific field, but a variety of things. If I become an artist that influences people in many different directions and aspects, I think I would be satisfied for having achieved my biggest goal. I will not be picky about any genre. I want to become an artist that only receives love and credit though music and not through art, movies, or acting.

[NEWS] On the site at the 2NE1 rehearsal ‘Serious yet lively!

On the 18th in the afternoon at the KBS Sports World Gymnasium in west Seoul.

These four girls, who although dressed in casual wear, cannot hide their charisma, are deeply engaged in conversation with foreigners. The girls in question are no other than idol group 2NE1.

With their Seoul concert approaching quickly, in order to prepare appropriately for the occasion, these girls are engulfed in passion to prepare every single movement they will be doing on stage, with world class performance staff.

On the 28th and the 29th, they will be holding their individual concerts at Olympic Park located in Seoul. Since this will be their first domestic concert in a year, as well as the kick off for their world tour, it holds extraordinary meaning to the members.

Unprecedented before in the Korean music industry, YG Entertainment has prepared the stage and lighting arrangements that they will be using at the actual concert at the KBS Sports World Gymnasium two weeks before the actual concert, and is ensuring that the 2NE1 members get sufficient practice in before.

The expenses laid out for these rehearsals, which began on the 16th, were not small, however YG is using this to repay 2NE1 for their great determination to present the greatest of performances for this concert.

2NE1 will be practicing until the 22nd at the KBS Sports World Gym, and move on to the actual gymnasium in Olympic Park on the 25th.

Even on the 4th day of their concert rehearsal, the 18th, the 2NE1 members displayed serious expressions while practicing.

YG representatives stated “From the very first day, the girls have been putting their greatest efforts in their practice starting at 1PM and going till 11PM at night.”

What caught our eyes is 2NE1′s frequent conversations held between them and the top class performance staff from around the world. World class choreographer and director, Travis Payne, who has worked with Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Usher, Madonna, etc. and who has received awards at the MTV Video

Music Awards for his work, along with assistant director, Stacy Walker, consults 2NE1 about even the finest details. Usually she talks with the leader, CL, then CL passes the message along to the members. Then the members proceed to get back to work.

Star News met with Travis Payne on location who complimented them greatly, “2NE1 is a surprising girl group.”
“It’s obvious that they’re amazing at music and performances, but they’re also confident and cute.”
He smiled and continued, “Even at the thought of seeing 2NE1′s performance, I’m excited.”, “I’m excited to see 2NE1 grow up as artists in the future, and I feel honoured to have been able to work with them.”

Being surrounded by people from production designer, Michael Cotton, who has participated in the designing of the Super Bowl as well as the Olympics, to the bassist and director of Beyonce’s band, Divinity Roxx, 2NE1 is absorbed in their preparations. But instead of being timid, the girls are lively engaging themselves with the staff members, and are working to connect the dots of their performance amongst this friendly atmosphere.

Although the 2NE1 members are worn out, they can be seen diligently taking care of their managers and company staff.

Gong Minji, who has turned 18 this year and resident cutie pie, has recently been obsessed with playing with remote control cars during break time, and bringing up the mood of those around her.
Just like this, 2NE1, although serious, has been preparing for the first concert of their world tour in a lively manner. As a result, is even more of a reason to anticipate meeting these girls at the end of this month.

[INFO] Seungri "Other members also like Japanese Food"!

Seungri revealed in his Diary on Josei Seven Magazine that Big Bang members like Japanese Foods.

Seungri said:
Everyone, have you had your meal? For this week too, me, VI will tell you more about BIGBANG’s private life!

In Korea, the phrase “Have you eaten?” has become like a greeting, which shows that food is really important. My favorite food is gyudon (rice bowl), so among the members, we started our day with asking “Have you eaten gyudon?” (laugh). But as entertainer, I have to think about my body shape, right? That’s why, every time after I ate oily foods, I’ll drink Oolong tea. Now, the fridge in my room is filled with Oolong tea and green tea’s bottles (laugh).

Whether in Korea or in Japan, when we’re doing our activity as 5, usually we’ll go out to eat together. Japanese foods are so delicious, and we really like ramenand curry! Among members, TOP is the most fussy about foods. If the food doesn’t suit his taste, he’s not going to eat it even if he’s hungry. But he really has a sweet tooth, he eats youkan(sweet bean jelly) with ice cream on top of it (laugh). He doesn’t like something that’s really spicy, but he likes sushi and wine.

GD (G-DRAGON) is thin but he eats a lot. He often eats such as steak, rice bowl, plenty of dishes, and also sweets. I’m jealous since he’s not gaining weight!SOL who has a muscular body, likes to eat grilled meat. D-LITE said he dislikes Baumkuchen and donuts (laugh)

Well, we have what we like and don’t but among us there’s no one that’s really a big eater (gluttonous)~ We’re different from the ‘MONSTER’(new song title), we’re just a normal person (laugh)

Today’s photo was taken when all 5 of us went to eat sushi after the concert last time. Honestly, my stomach was full since I already ate the catering food. But since TOP said, “Let’s go to eat”, that moment I thought “Eeh!” but then I just agreed by saying “Okay”. Then, every time they’ll say “Why don’t you eat this”, and offer me such as pink color of Otoro that looks pretty much like GD’s hairstyle, or some sweet shrimp, they made me ate a lot.

I’m forcing myself, this is some painful part of being the youngest right? (laugh)

VI’s solo photo cap: I ate spaghetti with thick sauce while recording for Nagoya TV show. On top of it, there were Nagoya’s famous food which is chicken wing,miso cutlet and fried shrimp. After the recording along with 10 staffs we ate it all

Photo at sushi restaurant’s cap: After ended the first day Alive Tour concert in Saitama Super Arena, with all members we went to sushi restaurant. We cheered “Let’s work hard tomorrow” with oolong tea

[NEWS] Kim Junsu rewrites K-pop history with his world tour!

JYJ member Junsu who has embarked on his solo career will write a new K-pop history of his own. Wrapping up his Asia tour which made stops in Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan and China, he is now preparing for another tour, this time in North and South America and Europe.

His first solo album “Tarantalegra” dominated international music charts, including Germany’s Asia music chart, Chile’s Etc…TV pop chart and Japan’s iTunes music chart. It also ranked on Billboard’s top 10 world album along with its music video entering at No.1 on a Chinese weekly music video chart.

Junsu planned out a world tour from the early stage of his solo career as he had limited access to his fans with TV. So he consulted able promoters who were in charge of previous JYJ world tour, and planned out one for himself this time that would make two to three stops in the each continent.

Junsu is currently working on repackaging his first solo album in English for the upcoming world tour. World-renowned producer Bruce ‘Automatic’ Vanderveer who had collaborated with American singer Christina Aguilera and music video director Marc Klasfeld who worked with Beyonce, Eminem and Jay-Z participate in the repackaging process for Junsu’s album and the music video.

As the news of Kim Junsu’s world tour spread out, his fans across the country take part in a campaign, wishing his tour made a stop in their nations. Fans in Peru made a collection of photos in which every single one of them was holding Junsu’s album and poster. His Mexican fans created a 5-minute video, entitled “Mexico is always waiting for you JYJ” on Youtube. Fans around Europe and South America posted messages online wishing for his visit to their countries.

A pop-culture critic in Korea said Kim Junsu was the very first solo musician launching a “world” tour, and his challenge would be worth looking at, because his overseas success could open a whole new world for solo artists, who did not relatively have much opportunities in the overseas music market, compared to idol groups.

Kim Junsu’s repackage to his first solo album will be released in the middle of August, and he will kick off his highly-anticipated world tour in the end of this August.

Hyoyeon received high marks for the very technical dance, getting a score of 10-9-10 from the judges for a total of 29 points.

Hyoyeon and Hyungsuk’s second dance was a Cha-cha-cha where Hyoyeon even got a chance to show off her popping skills. She looked stunning in a blue and silver dress, and the judges awarded her another 10-9-10 score, bringing her total for the night up to 58 points. Her competition for the finals was Choi Yeojin and her partner Park Jiwoo, who had a total of 58 points as well, leaving the deciding vote to the viewers. After voting was finished, in a climactic finale, Choi Yeojin’s team was deemed the winner of the second season of “Dancing with the Stars”.

Fellow Girls’ Generation members Yoona and Seohyun came to the live broadcast to show their support for Hyoyeon and were shown multiple times throughout the show cheering excitedly for her.

Fans were disappointed with the results, but they also expressed how proud they were of Hyoyeon making it to the finals and for dancing so well.

It was a long season of hard work where Hyoyeon would practice until early in the morning and in hotel rooms while traveling for Girls’ Generation’s overseas performances. Although Hyoyeon did not win, she showed throughout the entire season how much passion she has for dance and how talented she is.

Congratulations to Hyoyeon and her partner Hyungsuk for their amazing accomplishments on “Dancing with the Stars II”.
