MC Mong thank you friend -- Kim Dongwan

The friends whom i want to thank

Shinhwa's kim dongwan has been my friend the high school times. i got to know him when i signed up for the newcomer selection. his personality, being lively and very easy to mingle with brought me alot of help.

I almost could work with dongwan on the same team, but because of numerous reasons we couldnt. at that time i was really tired and stressed out, but thanks for dongwan who always gave me encouragements like "you can do it" lightened me up. he started writing lyrics in high school, and hasnt changed his passion for compositions and songs. looking at this guy, i feel more comfortable.

Interview "The Man named Myth" -- Lee Minwoo

M is a person who understands the hearts of the fans, he is named as someone who is good with fans' hearts. on the stage, he says things that causes goosebumps, and seems to enjoy the responses of the fans. when he's performing, he doesnt hide his real self and his heart from the fans. having been very accustomed to his performances, not only performances with shinhwa, he's also full of vigour and energy when he's solo-ing, like shouting "we're shinhwa!", standing on the solo stage singing M album's "intro" and "punch".

when the fans are saying they miss him alot and have been waiting for this day, he says "when we're singing together, we must dance; this way it wont be cold, for people who cant dance i'll help you to dance, okay?" of course following that would be the fans' screams and cheers. and then he continues to say, "those fans without lovers, all get married to myself!" is leeminwoo's style of winning those hearts.

bringing to the fans light hearted songs like "if you" and "one in a million" and when M sung "biya", clothes racks were put on the stage. M "took advantage of the situation" to show off his top body, showing M's sexiness and naughtiness. also singing "just one night" and "let me love you", M dances with sexy ladies whom the fans envy and M sits on the classy sofa on the stage. flashing romantic eyes and showing kiss scenes. after a few minutes of silence, a naughty voice speaks "nothing happened, really." this lets the fans breathe a sigh of relief.

today's performance (which is the end of november) although is a december solo concert M LIVE WORKS's pre-performance, but the stage's contents and designs are good enough. singing the songs live, and dancing well-polished moves open up one's eyes. M has prepared ne-yo's "so sick" for this concert, and has used guitar to recompose "lee so-na's" <im blessed>. the last song of the concert, "last first kiss", he bring back "bump" and "overdose", these two hot tracks. the song <memories of you> brought the concert atmosphere to the max.

Junjin, a member of the six-man group Shinhwa, will participate in Taiwanese singer Linda's latest album as part of efforts to begin his own activities in Taiwan.

Jeon will sing the song “Forever” in a duet with Linda for her third feature album scheduled to be released in 2007, and appear in a music video for the album’s title song to be shot in Korea on Dec. 30 and 31.

Having made her debut in 2003 with the album “No.7 LINDA,” the Taiwanese singer has been expanding her activities as an actress, show host, and commercial model based on her rising popularity.

The two singers will record “Forever,” which was composed by Korean composer Shin In-soo, in English, Chinese and Korean. Jeon will include the song in his special edition album to be released in late January. Some clips from the music video will also be used in the music video for the song “Even Though It Looks Like Love…” by Korean singer The Name.

Jeon (Jun) expressed hope that his duet with Linda would serve as a good opportunity to promote himself overseas. “I was loved so much by my fans in Korea this year with my first solo album. I hope I can receive as much love from overseas fans,” he said.

Meanwhile, Jeon (Jun) will attend SBS’ annual music award on Friday and, as a member of Shinhwa, participate in the K-Pop Super Live Concert to be held in Tokyo on Jan. 6.

Shinhwa , DBSK--- well sought after by online fans

This year, the battle of bands prove to be extremely competitive in Korea.

DBSK, who broke into the Japanese market within 2 years, sees their popularity rising rapidly.
They were even dubbed as "the band who could do better than other Japanese bands" by the Japanese critics.

DBSK, Shinhwa & SS501 sees overseas activites in Japan as a market not to be missed.
They all hoped that Korean bands will be the next leading stars of the Korean Wave ("Hallyu") in Japan.
Recently, acappella group TAKE took the China market by storm. Not just Japan, DBSK, Super Junior, Shinhwa and other bands starting promotions to other parts of Asia and won many fans over.

Of course, the bands will not neglect their Korean fans.
This year, the battle of the bands proved to be extremely competitve in the Internet world.
The battle between DBSK, Shinhwa & SS501 proved to be very tight, with DBSK gaining the upper hand in the first half of the year. Shinhwa managed to claim the winner spot during the later half 2006.

The results were based on the 2006 "Netizens Daesang MVP of the month" Poll.
Shinhwa won 4 times(July, Sept, Oct, Nov), DBSK won 3 times(Apr, May, first half of 2006) and SS501 only once in May.

DBSK won the spot in Feb, Mar and the first half of 2006 as MVP, which Shinhwa won the title in July, Sept, Oct & Nov.
Other bands like Epik High hit the TOP 5 many times during the first half of the year while Super Junior's rising popularity can be seen in the later half of the year.

The 20min long MV is split into four parts, filmed at the end of last month at Incheon, scheduled to be broadcasted on the 13th of next month. The MV consists of conversations on the bed, and Eric passionately kissing the female lead in a telephone booth.

There are also many fighting scenes in the MV, causing Eric to have bruises all over. Furthermore, he was punched right after he kissed the female actress, what nice concern Hyesung has for Eric! (in the MV) also, the japanese album that shinhwa produced, is standing at first place on the hmv charts, becoming this year's kpop singer champion.

Sina: JunJin's exclusive interview

Sina Entertainment is pleased to know that JunJin's debut single is finally released, after all the effort he has put in it.
The fans (known as Orange Princesses) weren't disappointed, as the single topped the charts soon after its release.

Debut Solo Act very lonely, hard work paid off after single sold well

JUNJIN: Sina internet friends, hello, I'm JUNJIN. It's my solo single and I've worked extremely hard in preparing it.
I hope you all will like it. I will work even harder in my debut album and activities. I will be a hardworking JUNJIN.

Sina: What are your thoughts on your solo single?

JUNJIN: Although this is my debut solo single, but seeing so many rave reviews and feedbacks, boosted my confidence.
I will work harder on my singing and learn as much as possible. I think I can give everyone a positive image.

Sina: What are your thoughts on doing activities as a solo artist?

JUNJIN: I feel lonely. Previously, I have the other Shinhwa members with me on the stage, I felt earnest.
But now that I'm on stage by myself, I felt cold and I need to overcome that. Now I know how hard it is to be a singer.
But everyone need not worry, I will overcome all obstacles.
Sina: Why did you choose a ballad as your first single?

JUNJIN: At first, the company & I wanted to release a dance number as my debut single.
But later when I heard "Love Doesn't Come," I like it alot and wanted to share it with everyone.

Upon learning JUNJIN's ill, his friends used his ringtone

Sina: How did you practice your singing?

JUNJIN: I practised in my car and at home. I also went to the studio with my manager to practice to record a Demo.
I brought the CD home with me and practised over and over again. When I got my CD, I could picture images in my brain.
I was thinking if I didn't put in effort, how will the CD turn out? After all the effort being put in the CD, that's why I felt good about the songs in the CD.
I fell ill recently, my vocals are affected. When I release my debut solo album, I will put in MORE effort and sing good songs for everyone.

Sina: What are your thoughts standing on the stage as a solo artist? You don't look nervous at all?

JUNJIN: I have many singers giving me tonnes of suggestions. They tell me about their stage experiences. Although I haven't stand on the stage as a solo artist, but then I'm have a familiar feel standing on the stage. They helped me alot.
Taking on the stage alone for the first time, I'm bound to make mistakes.
But on the day of the performance, everything went well. I know the encouragement from the other Shinhwa members and the experiences given by the other singers helped me alot. After the performance, I felt really hyper.

Sina: Looks like friends around you have high hopes for your debut single?

JUNJIN: I didn't force anyone, but some of the Shinhwa members and some friends have changed their ringtones to my songs. After I released my single, I called them and heard my ringtone (the kind where you could hear the music while your phone is dialing through a number). I felt happy for the first time since I haven't felt anything like that before.
I've got a thought of having a concert. Being chosen as having charismatic eyes really gave me a happy feel.

Sina: Thinking of having a concert?

JUNJIN: I did but I'm not sure when I will. Maybe after the first or 2nd album.
I have alot of ideas for my concert, I hope everyone will enjoy. But right now, the most important thing is my debut album.
I think I need to have alot of good songs before I can have my concert.

Sina: Heard that you got chosen as the artist with most charismatic eyes

JUNJIN: It's a direct voting by artists. I got chosen as the artist with most charismatic eyes, I felt extremely pleased.
I think there's almost 100 votes by the other artists. I'm not sure why I was chosen but I'm thankful.

Fans work hard in learning Korean, JunJin knows.

Sina: There's many China & Japan fans learning Korea, do you know why?

JUNJIN: There's alot of China & Japan fans studying & working in Korea, and learning Korean at the same time.
I could really feel that the fans learn Korean because of Shinhwa. I know that and will treasure their effort in my heart.
I will work harding to repay the efforts put in by the fans.

Sina: Didn't you perform as a solo artiste during the Shinhwa concerts?

JUNJIN: Those were before I officially debut as a solo artist, and I still felt hyper.
During Shinhwa's Asian Tour, I did my own solo act. I took it as a learning experience. It all help me when I debuted officially as a solo artist. Recently, I felt more comfortable performing on stage than on tv shows.

Wants to be close to Aaron Kwok, and perform in China.

Sina: Having thoughts of performing in China?
JUNJIN: If everyone is willing, I'll be glad to go. I will put on an outstanding performance.
I thinking China fans are different from Japan fans, and I'm more closer to the China fans.

Sina: Why China?

JUNJIN: In the past, I've performed in China many times with Shinwa. But I want to go as a solo artist.
One of my close brothers graduated from a university in China. We talked on the phone and he told me many things about China. I've been there many times, and I felt comfortable and suitable there.
I've performed with Aaron Kwok before. My backup dancers have danced for him too, so I felt I'm close to him

Sina: Lastly, say some things to your Sina Internet friends.

JUNJIN: I've released my single. I've received alot of support while in Korea doing solo activities.
Whether I'm acting or singing, I will work hard.

JunJin "feels that solo singers are, worth our respect."

JunJin from Shinhwa has shed 7~8kg in a month because of his solo activities, showing his fighting spirit.

“While I was having my solo activities, I lost about 7~8kg of my body weight,” JunJin said in a recent interview with Newsen. “The job was originally already tougher than usual, but I told myself that I want to have activities like someone who has just debuted.”

After releasing his single on 16th November, JunJin’s busy schedule began to take effect. The schedule was so tight that he could only sleep for 2 hours a day on an average. Although his life is resembles one of a emergency team soldier, JunJin is working hard for acknowledgement not as JunJin from Shinhwa, but JunJin the singer.

JunJin said, “While we are doing group activities, the other members can help to make up for the areas in which I am not good at, and at that time, I thought that imperfections were natural,” however, “Now it is different. I never thought that being a solo singer would be so difficult. I will be responsible right to the end. I always feel that solo singers are worth our respect.”

“Especially for someone like me who has always left an impression on others because of my dancing skills, to sing ballads for a change with the risk of failing is like fighting with yourself,” he said as the memories of the preparation process for his solo single came back to him, “There was a time whereby a part of me said, ‘JunJin, you are a dancer and a rapper’, while the other part of me kept encouraging myself. I have thought of giving up before. When there was a lot of pressure, I even had a phobia of the recording studio.”

JunJin also expressed with a smile that, “I have walked until here in this kind of situation. The first time I stood on the stage as a solo artist, I worked hard to become JunJin the singer, and not JunJin from Shinhwa. I am used to it now, and I have become even more stable even in a concert.”

“I have had a lot of desire to dance lately,” JunJin mentioned lastly. “However, I am now focusing on ballads. Even though I still have a lot of imperfections from the viewpoint of a fan, but I will still try my best keep improving. I feel very fortunate now.

Junjin shares the same sentiments with TVXQ-Hero

Singer Junjin (27, Park Chong Jae) relates to the similarities of their sad family history with TVXQ Hero.

In a recent interview with JoyNEWS24, Junjin said "Hero has many similiarities with me." "We once talked about our family problems 2 years ago."

The 2 of them met over a meal 2 years ago, and talked a lot. The topic of own family history came up during their conversation.

Hero had publicly admitted that he was adopted during the recent parental dispute lawsuit. Junjin also only met up his birth mom 4 years ago since his parents divorced.

Junjin said "Hero would never talk about these things easily, but that day, he did. To tell the truth, I was also feeling the same, so talking helps."

It's never easy talking about a painful family history, far more so for the popular singer who's under the limelight.

Junjin also said "Not to mention, even we as an artiste are still unclear in the ways of life, but this kind of experience help us to mature faster. This the same for me, Hero too, and many others who had the same pain would feel that too."

"Though we had painful experience, but we promised ourselves to become the best singer by working hard."

As a senior and older brother to Hero, Junjin shows his deep concern and care to Hero.

After being awarded the Best Artiste on MKMF on 25Nov, Hero said "Thank you for awarding us!The hard work we had put in for 3 years... and now, I must say thank you to my birth mom!"

Junjin once expressed his wish to look for his birth mom when he's famous; his recent rendition of "Love won't come" was widely recognised, making his solo debut a success.

"So hilarious!!"

Shin Jung Hwan and Andy's cross-dressing appearance have filled many audiences with laugther.

On the 29th November, during the episode of Gold Fishery 'OK Scene' segment, Shin Jung Hwan and Andy played Chae Gyung, the female lead role in MBC's popular drama Goong. This character who was originally played by Yoon EunHye is about a commoner who became a crown princess, just like a modern day Cinderella.

In the show, Shin Jung Hwan and Andy's "charismatic" cross-dressing gained a lot of viewership.

Shin Jung Hwan got to play the confession and kissing scene of Chae Gyung and Shin, with Kang Ho Dong as Shin. This parody scene brought many laughter. As Shin Jung Hwan's cross dressing seems so natural.

The most interesting scene is the kiss. Shin Jung Hwan who initially felt uncomfortable said I can't do it." But they did a splendid finish after that, this led the whole cast to applause for them.

Andy and Im ChaeMoo played a parody scene of "Shin and Chae Gyung's first night". At the first half of the scene, Andy kept laughing. "When I thought of myself being dressed like that, it made me laugh". This role gave him pressure therefore he ended up having many NGs.

Andy who displayed superb acting skill as good as Shin Jung Hwan's, received a 'thumbs up from the producer. In parody of Kim SamSoon, Kang HoDong and Andy's kiss scene had also received recognition. On the day of broadcast, many viewers had given very good comment on their acting skills.

Singers-Turned-Actors: the Best and the Worst

In Korea, singers don't just sing to make a living any more. They try hard to map out a career cycle as entertainers, with the arch usually taking them into acting ventures of varying success. In soap operas particularly, some acquit themselves well. Others, however, provoke derision from Korea’s merciless Netizens for the way they flounce and pout around the sets.

In fact, the majority of soap leads are played by singers today. The Chosun Ilbo asked 14 writers and producers of hit dramas who the best and worst of the bunch are. We asked them to rank the top three in each category by giving three points to the best, two to the second best and one to the third.

Among men, famously ambitious Rain came top with a score of 29 for appearances in “Full House” and “A Love to Kill.” Praise was fulsome. "He successfully appeals to the public with his ability to express feelings in a sympathetic way and by making the transition from singer to actor very naturally,” one panel member enthused. "He’s a jewel. It would have been such a loss if he hadn’t decided to act.” In second was Kim Chang-wan with 13 points, followed by Kim Dong-wan with 10 points and Lim Chang-jung with 9. Mun Jeong-hyeok or Eric, who landed in fifth with 8 points, got mixed reviews. Some said he was “taking full advantage of his pretty face and ability as an entertainer." Others were less kind.
