A new album, a new image
by | August 24, 2008 | 16 Comments
What I like about rock(ish) singer Younha is that she hasn’t really had to rely on “image,” at least not in the way that other pop artists have had to build up a publicity whirl around themselves to attract attention and try to distinguish themselves from people from whom they are not actually that distinguishable....

Shin Hye-sung and Honey Lee’s good day to love
by | August 24, 2008 | 17 Comments
Shinhwa vocalist Shin Hye-sung is out and about promoting his new third solo album, and boasting a new look. Some have called it a “rocker transformation,” but I think of it as retro kitsch (all he needs is a ‘stache and he’s got the old-school skeeze look down). His album also features a few collaborations,... More »

Mnet 20’s Choice Awards makes weird choices
by | August 23, 2008 | 38 Comments
MC Jang Geun-seok Although I didn’t watch August 23’s broadcast of Mnet’s 20’s Choice awards (a wannabe VMA’s, really), looking over the full winners list, my first reaction is: “What were they smoking?” Some choices made sense. I get why Jang Geuk-seok, shakin’ his thang above as the event’s MC, was awarded Hot Movie Star... More »

A duet with Honey Lee
by | August 20, 2008 | 21 Comments
Another reason to hate on 2006’s Miss Korea (and new actress) Honey Lee? After all, she’s gorgeous (and a Miss Universe finalist), a talented musican (majoring in classical instruments like the gayageum), smart (went to Seoul National University), and is expanding her career to include not only acting but now also singing. If that ain’t... More »

As announced, supa-star Rain held his fanmeeting and birthday party (called “Summer Vacation with Rain”), at Olympic Hall in Seoul’s Olympic Park on July 27. The event commenced at 3pm, hosted by MC Kim Jae-dong, who made his TV debut around the same time as Rain’s singer debut. That familiarity made for a light-hearted time... More »

They look too cute. The couple met back in the summer of ’06 at church... More »

Balladeer Tim is following in buddy and fellow management-company-mate Sohn Ho-young‘s footsteps in embarking upon a “momjjang project” (“momjjang” meaning hot bod). To this end, Tim’s recently started his goal toward bulking up his naturally thin frame by joining a gym and accepting the advice of self-professed fitness buff and ex-G.O.D. rapper Sohn (to right),...

Because world stars need home fanbases too
by | July 22, 2008 | 18 Comments
First he had that (as predicted) rather forgettable turn in Speed Racer. Then there was that Kung Fu Panda theme song he recorded that was overshadowed by Cee-Lo’s better (and “official”) version, after which he spent some time in Germany bulking up to shoot Ninja Assassin. After such an extended stretch of time away from... More »
