Hello. This is Cube Entertainment.
One of Korea’s hottest boy group, 2AM kicked-off for Manila, to hold their 3-day album tour of their recent Saint o’ clock album. The boys have received an unexpected warm welcome from the Filipino fans and were shocked by the huge number of crowds who came and watched them on the said dates. 2AM held two days of Meet&Greet and the last day for a Grand Show wherein the boys sand most of their songs and even enjoyed some requests by the fans. Jo Kwon said in Filipino “Babalik kami!” which means “We will be back!” in English. The boys returned to Korea later night after the grand show. SEE SOME VIDEO AND PICTURES BELOW:
Being a fan is one of the greatest gift an idol can receive. But when fans take it to the limit, somehow it is not so beneficial for their idols. From the recent performance of SNSD for “Angel Price Music Festival” at the Lotte World ice rink, a mysterious man grabbed the attention of not only the members of SNSD but all of the people present in the event as well. Towards the end of their performance of Run Devil Run, the male grabbed Taeyeon and led their way off stage. The other SNSD members well left on shock but Sunny, who was the most attentive member that time, tried to stop the man from pulling Taeyeon, fortunately the MC of the show managed to stop the man and then the security came afterwards.
A representative of SM Entertainment stated after the incident, (more…)
The much anticipated single of SNSD, ‘Mr. Taxi’ is now out and is making a sensation among the fans. The song is still the ‘bubble gum pop’ that SM Entertainment kept promoting through this years. It also shows off the mature side of SNSD and the “IC” hook. This means there are words with the suffix -ic. Supersonic, Hypersonic to name them. These words are pretty much similar with the recent SME songs like Hurricane Venus, Lucifer, NU ABO, Ring Ding Dong etc. To which words like Loverholic, Robotonic, Electronic, Manic, Supersonic, Bionic, Hysterric, Fantastic, Elastic are being used.

After a year-long break from the scene, kpop female group 4 Minute is all set for their comeback this April of 2011 with their album entitled “STEAL 20″. By STEAL 20 they mean they want to show their mature side and image.
Here are the concept photos and 30s song teaser:
Korean girlsband, LPG (Long Pretty Girls), remade a Yolanda Be Cool & D Cup’s song, “We Speak No Americano” (Pitbull remade that song too… his version is called “Bon, Bon”). LPG’s version is called “Angry”. It was released on 17th March, 2011. Check out their live perfomance for “Angry” below! What do you think about their version?

There was a rumor that the actress Lee Dahae (East of Eden) and actor/singer Micky Yoochun (Sungkyunkwan Scandal) will be together in a new drama. Well folks, the rumor was right. They are confirmed casts of the upcoming MBC drama ‘Goodbye Miss Ripley‘. The thing that interests netizens is the fact that it is not the oh-so cliche love story. But it is more serious and is inspired by a national scandal that shook the media in 2007: it is the infamous ‘Shin Jeong Ah’ a university professor and art curator at Dongguk University, who forged her credentials to get hired, and then embezzled funds from the art gallery’s corporate sponsorships. She got hired in 2005 under the belief that she had earned a BFA and MBA from the University of Kansas and a PhD from Yale, when in fact she was only a high school graduate. Her boyfriend Byeon Yang-kyoon, 19 years her senior, was a presidential secretary at the time, and helped her forge the paperwork and get hired.
The drama isn’t a direct true crime story, but apparently is inspired by the scandal. How closely it resembles Shin Jeong-ah’s story remains to be seen, but so far it’s a good hint as to where the main character, played by Lee Da-hae, will go. Her character loses her family when she’s young, and gets adopted into an unhappy home, which is just the beginning of her unfortunate destiny. It probably speaks to the character’s motivation for the ensuing schemes. Meanwhile, actress Kang Hye Jung will also be making her return to dramas as the main character of “Goodbye Miss Ripley”. This will be her first time appearing in a drama since 2007’s “Flowers For My Life“ along with Kim Sung Woo (IRIS, Athena).
I wonder how Micky Yoochun fit into all this drama. You see, he is the goody-good romantic boy in his last drama and now he starts to be an influential boyfriend who helps her girlfriend do the crime thing. But who knows? Maybe his character is the other way around. Maybe he will still be the goody-good, less romantic and more righteousness man. Right?
Well, let’s find what what will happen in the drama which premieres on MBC this May 2011.
Several Facebook accounts like ’2ne1 Philippine Fanpage’ and ‘Universal Records Philippines’ started to post as status “CLAP YOUR HANDS & MARK THIS DATE BLACKJACKS – MAY 15, 2011″. Then UR Philippines followed the status update with this statement : “FROM HAPPEE SY : Since Vernon has his PULP Summer Slam every year.. i decided to have my version of Slam, KPOP style whee! thats how “THE PARTY” was born.. and its birth is on May 15 @ the SMX convention Center. featuring our country’s top local bands (not hard core rock) + 1 of the hottest female Kpop artists you know.. further details to follow.. just keep saving..”
With these statements, they all lead to one kpop girl group, 2ne1.
