[08.10.30][diary] Dongwan: In "Tokyo Tower"..

Between people
They seem to be attracted to each other because of air
No matter whether it's the personality or the looks, before all that it is air
The air that revolves around people.
I believe in gut instincts...

-ㅎㅎI used this quote for the Busan fanmeeting............
I said this came from the book "Norwegian Wood" by Haruki Murakami...-_-;
Actually this is from the book "Tokyo Tower" by Kaori Ekuni...ㅜㅜ

[08.10.29][trans] Eloquence - a must-have for idols

Eloquence and wit is now a necessary requirement to be idols nowadays.

Idol groups must now know how to go about creating gags and jokes to amuse the audience in order to gain popularity. Making appearances on talkshows and reality variety shows, idols must now show their eloquence and quick wit, in addition to the usual display of charisma. It is now the norm to adopt a more honest, frank and straightforward attitude, as opposed to the idols of the 90s where it was key to maintain a certain air of mystery.

(irrelevant info omitted)

When it comes to having a flair for variety programs, Shinhwa can be considered as the pioneers. As early as 2004, Shinhwa has been showing their knack for variety. Despite being a cool idol group, the members showed no mercy when it came to exposing embarrassing secrets about each other, yet this candidness did wonders in introducing each individual member's personality and charm. As using the foundation that Shinhwa laid as a platform, each member has gone on to carve out successful solo careers.

[08.10.29][trans] Andy takes on the musical stage once again

Andy takes on the musical stage for the third time with .
When we meet him at the performance venue
Instead of the veteran singer who has been enjoying popularity for the past 10 years, we find a humble musical actor who is working hard at learning more about musicals.

In September, PLAY DB magazine did a poll to find the musical actor that the audience most looked forward to seeing in October's theatre projects. In the end, Andy of rose above his competition and was thus featured on the October issue. Let's go on a date with Andy, who, after and , is now starring in .

"I need to change my image now"

When we ask Andy to smile for the camera, he playfully nods, then shakes his head. Although he seems to be speaking in jest, his determination still comes through. The character of Soo Hyun in is a new challenge compared to Andy's gentle and mild image on various variety shows. In order to portray a more mature and masculine image, Andy has already started practising way ahead of time.

Learning and growing little by little

"Soo Hyun is a very attractive character. The way he loves a woman and the way he puts in effort is close to the character that I hope to be. In actual fact I think less than 10% of Korean men are like Soo Hyun, there really aren't many of them (laughs)."

He has clearly been very immersed in his role. Andy's image should finally be changed with this performance, and he is now working hard on portraying the slightly dull personality of the character.

Now, compared with the image of the popular star and Shinhwa member which he has been enjoying for the past 10 years, now he is more of a rookie musical actor.

"My first musical performance left me with many regrets. I wanted to show my more mature side but I didn't seem to achieve that. But I find musicals really interesting, having to interact and coordinate with the other actors within the two hours. It's really fun."

In 2006's , it is true that no one thought much of Andy. Although he had a very positive effect on the box office results, there were comments that Andy's effect stemmed from his status as a singer from an idol group. Although he possessed stage presence and the ability to grab the audience's attention, his acting skills still had room for improvement. He seems to know this better than anyone else when he says, "There are still many times when I wish that I can do better. I get most frustrated when I've already analysed the character yet I can't deliver what I wanted to, that's the worst part. I still need more practice when it comes to this."

"I still get nervous although I've practiced, but somehow though I can't see my own improvement, the others tell me that I've gradually improved."

Musicals: Turning Point

This year Andy released his first solo album, ANDY THE FIRST NEW DREAM. Fans' reactions were mostly of surprise, as Shinhwa rapper Andy chose to sing instead of rap for his album. "Some people said it was amazing and that I had practiced a lot, but there were others who said that it was still lacking. But people were mostly surprised. I didn't expect singing to be this fun."

It was his first musical Music In My Heart that triggered him, making him feel that singing was actually fun, something that he didn't realise even in Shinhwa.

"Before Music In My Heart I really hated my own voice. Every aspect of it. But during the musical, the director and the other cast members said that my voice has a unique charm to it, and it was good to hear that (laughs). And it's how I developed an interest and ambition towards musicals. I made many mistakes on stage then. Missing cues were nothing compared to forgetting lyrics. After that I always came to the venue an hour beforehand to practise. Now although I'm still nervous on stage, but I've gradually picked up the techniques and the other cast members often give me advice and tips too."

"During fellow cast member Do Hyun hyung told me, "Even if you have only 3 minutes on the stage, you must still understand the stage, and think of why you're eher and what you have to do." It's vital to concentrate and focus before going on stage, I've been swearing by this piece of advice and I'll continue to do so."

Andy then laughs playfully as he adds, "But Do Hyun hyung didn't teach me how to be in sync with emotions though."

I am Shinhwa

Besides acting, we have also seen him busy with his music activities. In March this year, he stood with the other Shinhwa members for Shinhwa's 10th anniversary concert, and he also held solo concerts in Japan, China and Korea. But he loves Shinhwa more than anything else, the Shinhwa that gave him what he has today. He says, "When people ask the members if Shinhwa will disband when the members enlist for military duty, we just laugh it off."

Although he agrees that Shinhwa has enjoyed a great amount of popularity for the past 10 years, but success didn't come easily.

"Honestly Shinhwa's 1st album did badly and when we got to the top of the charts with T.O.P from our 2nd album, our ambitions grew. We wanted to win the Daesang, but that didn't come until our 7th album. After 8 years, we also finally moved into the rest of Asia, that's how we spent the 10 years. That's why I think there's nothing for me and Shinhwa to be afraid of anymore."

His fans aren't limited to just Korean fans, but fans from Asia as a whole. For his musicals, it's a common sight to see large groups of fans from Japan and China among the audience. He had even met a fan from Mexico before. Andy says, "Once I think of the fans I want to work harder at showing my more mature side."

In the interview, when he talks about , he talks about his views on relationships and marriage too. He wants to find someone soon, but he concludes that "Marriage is something very difficult."

"Married life itself isn't tiring, but getting to the stage of marriage isn't an easy thing either. My ideal type changes everyday. My ideal type today is someone who wants to marry me (laughs), but tomorrow it may change. Having said that, I'm not a playboy. Honestly I like girls with beautiful eyes, and if she's filial that's even better."

He says he has a lot of ambition now. If there's a chance, he'll want to take up a new challenge in a new genre. Next year he'll be working on a new album and concerts, and variety show appearances are also on his list of to-do things. Redefining his role as a singer and actor, Andy might even bring us more surprises next year.

[08.10.29][news] Minwoo: Men? Except for me, don't trust them

"Men really can't be trusted?"

In response to this interesting question, Lee Minwoo (28) has an interesting response too, "Except for me, don't trust other men."

Shinhwa member Lee Minwoo has just released his 4th solo album, featuring his title track Don't Trust Men, singing of the selfish and self-centered, yet charming character of the bad boy

You're too good to give away, but I don't want to keep you
I don't want marriage, but I want to date

Lee Minwoo has this to say about the lyrics, which may make ladies want to throw stones at the bad boys out there, "I never worried much about this, anyway the trend in the music scene lately seems to be bad boys." Rain's Bad Boy and DBSK's Mirotic are all examples of this. Although it may seem strange, but bad boys seem to possess a certain charm. Lee Minwoo is not exception.

"In fact I'm not a bad boy. I'm the type who will blindly give my all once I fall in love. I used to be that way with my ex-girlfriends. Perhaps I will still be this way in future."

Some time ago, Lee Minwoo was criticized for revealing the names of his ex-girlfriends on a variety show, the reason being that people felt that it was inappropriate to bring up the past relationships. "I called Ji Young and Shin Ae to apologize after that. At that time the MCs kept prodding me to reveal their names. I feel really bad towards them for my thoughtless actions."

Brave Brother wrote Don't Trust Men for Lee Minwoo. Since his debut Minwoo had already know the brothers Hyuk Chul and Dong Chul, and had already confirmed this track since late last year. Although Minwoo himself had written more than 10 songs, he decided on selecting more songs from other songwriters.

"I was too adamant on sticking to my own style for my 3rd album and Stomp, and I received comments that I was insisting on having my own way. This time round, I took a step back and listened to the views of the listeners." Having focused on an aggressively masculine sound in the past, Minwoo has toned down and gone for a softer, smoother sound in this album.

I 'M' U, a song written with Lee Hyun Do while they were in the car, features hiphop duo Mighty Mouth; Wonder Girls' Yoobin also features on Banhan Honey; Son Dambi lends her sexy vocals to Hot. These collaborations have give this album another dimension and more variety.

Having spent the past 10 years with Shinhwa, this is Lee Minwoo's 4th solo outing. As for the next 10 years, Lee Minwoo says, "I aim to build and expand my personal trademark." Last year, he set up M RIZING to manage his future music producing work.

"I'll be enlisting for military duty in the middle of next year, and I have a lot of things to do before that. I hope to help the younger talents to establish themselves. The next 10 years will be the period where I become Lee Minwoo the producer."

Starting from August 6th, MNet show "JunJin High School Girls 4" will end at its episode on 29th October.

"JunJin HSG4" as well as other previous programs "In the purity of 19", "Handsome flowers state" of PD Kim Tae Eun attracted a lot of netizens' attention.

During the first episodes, the show starring singer JunJin and 4 high school students who formed a family, was accused by the audience. The HS students who ride motorcycle without helmet on, their bad language, and other uncivilized behaviors got a lot of criticism.

However, the show did better in ratings in later episodes and the audience requested for an extension in broadcast time. "JunJin HSG4" airtime was increased from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Therefore, the editing needed to be changed and the task was not as easy. PD Kim Tae Eun expressed his regret since the show didn't receive the same attention as when it had been edited out.

He said "With the existing programs, we don't use the normal production methods. We raised the shutter speed, and the characters activities could be more clear and it gives the feeling of a reality programs."

[08.10.27][trans] Lee Minwoo's 4th album photoshoot #16

Photographer Jo Seon Hee took a black and white picture of M with his back painted.
So we thought that we definitely want to show everyone the color version
If we were to ever post behind the scenes pictures.
Although this is the 9th picture to be taken for the album, but this demonstrates fully M's idea
- It's something very meaningful painted on his body
So we decided that this will be the last series of behind-the-scenes pictures we're posting from the photoshoot.

Letting everyone see the little braid is Jo Seon Hee's idea, doesn't it go well?
This is M who wants to make the bodypainting as perfect as possible, thus cleaning it off and putting it on again
The final result after the repeated process

While letting his back be seen both from the left and right angles
The photographer has to hold the camera
And follow M as he turns left and right non-stop.. ^^;;

It will look pretty good if we're using this for a denim jeans ad isn't it?
Although this model has done one or two CFs he isn't exactly satisfactory....ahem!

M with his back painted
If he stretches his hands into a straight line, his hands become the wings of a big bird,
And if he only raises his right hand it becomes the "Z" of M RIZING,
If he raises both his hands upwards it becomes the victory "V".
The shoot took 12 hours, 14 concepts
A room filled with tens of sets of clothes and shoes, hats, accessories and 3 boards of reference images
The many staff, the cat and little angel in the studio, photographer Jo Seon Hee who dotes on M a lot, and our star Lee Minwoo, have all put in long hours and great effort to produce
The 4th album M RIZING.

But this album also owes its completion to M's fans who have been showing their support and love, and their patience.

This is the last set of pictures from the 4th album photoshoot.

If he didn't pay attention he wouldn't understand clearly, so M spoke slowly to the little angel
Squatting to the same height as the child, chatting lovingly
While everyone is busy with the preparations for the next shot
No one notices (M probably didn't know how he got caught on film too .^^
We see M at his gentlest and warmest, talking to the child,
And it feels like...ah...this guy is really a good person
On TV or on stage M probably never fully shows what a warm person he is
This scene feels really precious

Although his body is completely exhausted, and his senses are all confused
But M doesn't lose the cuteness in his eyes
Yes, a man who completely deserves to be loved

P.S: Thanks to everyone who has shown your support to the [4th album photoshoot] series
After this we will be posting behind-the-scenes pictures from the MV shooting of Don't Trust Men, please give your support too ^_^

081024 3rd jib Tour Note 9 -- by Dr. Hong - Bali (Fast, quick)

Tour note 1-3:
Tour note 4-8:


As the practising gets overheated on one of the day before the actual performance~~
The dark underground dancing studio gets brighten up.
It is because the fans of singer Shin who have well-prepared for us the food~ ^^

Singer Shin who has not eaten (empty stomach)~~
Personally move the table upon seeing the food, combining them together one by one.
Not sure whether if its because of the hunger, we immediately picked up the fork, lobster, bento (rice box).... and eat them earnestly...
And then he told the band members and the staffs, "See it?", as he looks happy...

It seems that the motivation given to singer isn't the food prepared by the fans but their LOVE~~

This time it's Dandy M
M's strength lies in interpreting
Even the most difficult fashion concepts and making it his own style!

A hairstyle that shows the forehead
If one has no confidence in his style
It will be quite a shock! ....Wa~
No matter what M does, it's so easy for him!

It doesn't have to be said....bring on any style!!
Kaeganji M with 100% self-confidence

What's in the box that M is holding?

Kissing the empty box,
What is going through M's mind right now....

The will to make his dreams come true
The wings that don't give in to obstacles and continue flying towards the skies
The beautiful music and dance that turns tears into smiles, and replaces sadness with happiness
Although it seems empty, it's a box that contains all his dreams
And the words of love that M can't say.

[08.10.23][News]Shinhwa to lose its second member to military service

One down, four more to go. (Shin Hye-sung is exempt due to a bum knee.)

Following Eric’s departure earlier this month, Shinhwa singer and actor Kim Dong-wan (The Person I Love, Taekwon Boys) will be enlisting for army duty on November 17.

According to his management, he is currently busy recording for his last album before he serves (wait, didn’t he already collapse once from overwork earlier this year to rush out an album?). This last album will be a single, to be released in early November.

(You wanna know why a lot of kpop sucks? Well, I’m sure hurriedly rushing through last-minute recording to maximize exposure before army duty doesn’t help any. I understand the sentiment, but come on — it’s late October and they’re recording for an album to be released in early November?)

I foresee a ton of new enlistments in the upcoming few months. You can practically see the new crop of up-and-comers champing at the bit to take over the limelight once their hyungs are sent away for the next two years.

[08.10.23][News]Kim Dong Wan to Enlist on 17th November

According to H2 Entertainment today, “Kim Dong Wan will report at the Gongju training center on 17th November.

Although we are less than a month away, Kim Dong Wan is giving his best effort to produce a last album for his fans before his enlistment.”


[08.10.23][News] The Second Golden Age of Variety Shows [feat JunJin]

The second golden age of variety shows is mainly featured by the rising popularity of many singers - entertainers. You can have a count with Lee Hyori, Shin Jung Hwan, Alex, Seo In Young, Solbi, Andy, Crown J, Hwang Bo, Kim Hyun Jong, MC Mong, Tae Jae Hoon, Lee Seung Ki, Kim C, Eun Ji Won, with the successful shows “We got married”, “1 night 2 days”, “Sang Sang Plus”, etc.

Among them, first of all, we need to represent the most brilliant artist. JunJin is the representative of Variety Shows’s Second Golden Age. In MBC “Infinity Challenge” and SBS “YSMM 2″, as a MC, JunJin is himself in his second primetime.

Among the new faces, MBC “WGM” new couple Marco - Son Dam Bi is receiving a lot of attention, as well as Hwayobi - Hwan Hee.

We also cannot forget SBS “Family Outing” Daesung, with a pleasant image and a popular “Dumb guys” connection with Yoo Jae Suk.

There are also many young singers who are challenging themselves with variety shows. 2PM Nich Khun who has appeared in SBS “YSMM” and KBS “Schoolympics” is a new fresh wind.

Recently, Yoo Jong Shin has become one of the leaders of varitey shows, especially with his shows for children, receiving a lot of love.

The increase in the number of singers joining variety circuit has a mutual effect on the popularity of the success of a program. The future of performing arts seems to be very bright and hopeful.

[08.10.23][News] JunJin’s Infinity Challenge Vs. Haha’s Infinity Challenge

Infinity Challenge of JunJin and Infinity Challenge of Haha, how has it changed ?

JunJin has changed MBC “IC”. That’s how it is, whether you call him 6th member or 7th member, it doesn’t matter.

“IC” CP Kim Yeop told the reporters on October 21st “JunJin has a sense of family for us, he’s a family’s member, naturally, and a real good fit. It doesn’t matter whether he’s made official or not.”

Then there’s IC of Haha time and IC of JanJin (JunJin) time, we wonder what the difference is.

“Haha is the member with many skills and flexible network. Back then, the relationship between him and Ho Hong Chul is especially unique and funny with their “thick skin” tactics. His presence captured the sense of timing and improvisation.”

Therefore, the absence of Haha in IC was damaging to the point that it reduced the feeling from the laughters of other members.

The weekly special guests were all given chance to adapt to the show and test in the empty space.

But finally, the fixed-guest “JanJin” was chosen. “JanJin” hang out with the existing members, he’s in good terms with the production team. Obviously, the choice is just natural decision.

CP Kim Yeop said “JunJin is member of an idol group, but he doesn’t have any slightest discriminations and doesn’t get any privileges. He’s funny in a side, and serious in another, there are many elements in him that mixed perfectly with the existing characters and made any situations more interesting.”

He added “Those people themselves make the situation a comedy, and they decide how to play in it. Haha and Yoo Jea Suk are playmakers. JunJin is different. He’s not a “maker” alone, he’s a “player”, with his bright and passionate character.”

[08.10.23][News] JunJin - The combination of passion and gravity

SBS ‘야심만만 예능선수촌’의 MC로 활약 중인 전진 ⓒ야심만만 예능선수촌 제공

No one could expect something like his popularity. After 10 years in idol group Shinhwa, he’s now building his own brand name and moving forward like a comet.

After replacing Haha in MBC “Infinity Challenge”, he’s once again announced as a fixed MC of SBS “YSMM - Celebrities Village”, in addition to many other terrestrial and cable shows.

He has emerged to the entertainment world as both an idol singer and a performing arts superstar.

However, most of us may not know that he was the first one who grabbed YSMM PD Cho Young Jin and Ga Seung Young attention to make him the show’s MC - MC JunJin. Kang Ho Dong was the 2nd one to be picked.

We met the PDs and listened to the interesting story.

“We made a lot of interviews to choose the casts for the shows. And he’s really special. 10 years active as a singer, but the public didn’t know much about the real him. 10 years in the entertainment world with fruitful results, but with many wounds and scars. JunJin during the interview was all honest and straight forward. He told us “You know that there are a lot of things I want to show and tell”. We also feel that way, and the decision was made.”

전진 ⓒ홍봉진 기자 honggga

The PDs acknowledged well JunJin’s wave as an MC. In particular, his talent showed in YSMM is the strong weapon of the show. The “man of public” believed it would be a chance to jump high.

As expected, he’s the hit. Everyone likes him, especially because of the unique passion and characteristics. In any seious conversations, he always shows the sincere and caring attitude towards the guests and gives them his bright smile which generates the special harmony.

“When I look at JunJin, I think that’s really a man of passion. There are 7 MCs in the show, but he’s still shining with his charm. When he interacts with people, and with a serious look on his face, you can’t help but blowing out laughing. I’m sorry to say this but sometimes, it’s so serious to the point that you have to laugh. Ha,ha,ha.”

Actually, our reporters met JunJin during the recording, and we realised how serious this guy was. Even when he’s in pain, he still managed to control it and deliver the funny lines. We were laughing, but his smile showed the pain.

“If you look at the monitor for editing, JunJin is unexpectedly shining. The cameraman always has a hard time when we’re shooting, cannot move the focus out of JunJin.”

Everyone in this life cannot avoid being indented. Neither can JunJin. But despite all the wounds he got from the past, he’s still moving forward. And when working, the passionate man will forget the pain.

“How many times in a 10 year time can you find someone with a great passion and the biggest mental strength as JunJin? He has in him the great synergy effect, and he wants to show you more.”

We know who’s the owner of 2008. That’s JunJin and his spectacular charm.

[08.10.21][news] Shin Hyesung narrated Fan meeting plan “Inviting you to ‘Shin Hyesung’s small room” in November”


Shinhwa member, Shin Hyesung talked about his plan on holding Fan meeting in November.

In the afternoon at 4:30pm on the 18th, Shin Hyesung held a press conference before his 2nd solo concert '2008 SHS LIVE TOUR SIDE 1 "LIVE AND LET LIVE" IN SEOUL' at Seoul Songpa-gu Bangi-dong Olympic Park Fencing Arena, during which he said, “Still in plan to organize a Fan meeting during my birthday in November in the form of invitation to the fans to my small room.”

[08.10.22][news] Lee Minwoo dreams of making Korea the best cultural space in Asia

When I first heard Taeyang's Look Only At Me, I wondered how it would be if it was M Lee Minwoo singing it instead. In the music scene lately, singers like M - with an image that's aggressive and rebellious - come across as being very attractive. The "bad boy" of the music scene, the embodiment of sexy - Lee Minwoo - is back.

Don't Trust Men....Coming back as a bad boy

Not too long ago Lee Minwoo returned to the fans with his new song Don't Trust Men, a song that paints a vivid image of the "bad boy". The song is somewhat reminiscent of Taeyang's Look Only At Me, and one can't help but feel that the track comes just a step too late.

"Is that how it is? The first time I heard Taeyang's song, honestly it felt like it was a song about me. It seems like I'm really suited to be a bad guy. I often hear comments about me like "he seems rude", "he seems aggressive"." In actual fact he is someone with a lot of emotions and is really quite a great guy.

Surprisingly Don't Trust Men isn't written by Lee Minwoo. "I wanted to have something that can satisfy the mass pop audience."

His 4th album, an album made for the listeners

It feels like Lee Minwoo's music production abilities have moved on to the next level. This album is very well balanced. "Taking a title track written by someone else, it seems to complement the songs I've written even better. Someone said that the other songs on the album should be heard before the title track. I took on the role of producer for 8 tracks on the album, and among these, Cool Life has had great feedback, so I'm really glad."

Fans have responded most favorably to Cool Life - an upbeat track with lyrics that give an interesting take on life - rather than the title track, and there's a high chance that it may end up being the follow-up single. The 4th album was produced with the fans' opinions and preferences in mind, and the titles of the tracks are mostly in Korean as well.

Lee Minwoo, and his dream

He doesn't give you the feeling of a manufactured pop idol right out of an idol group. During the times Shinhwa was active as a group, he had already written songs that appeared on Shinhwa albums. Eventually he released his solo albums and became a producer, and his talents finally got recognized.

He has dreams that are vastly different from his peers too. His dream is not just to have his own entertainment company, but rather to build the Shinhwa brand, and to make Korea the best cultural space in Asia.

"I hope for a start we'll have more concert venues tailored just for holding concerts and performances, and specialized record stores like those in Japan."

Shinhwa... Proud of being a member of the best pop group

Building a Shinhwa trademark is definitely not a small dream for Lee Minwoo. "Since we made our debut as Shinhwa, I've been talking to Eric about this. Building a Shinhwa trademark is not because of pressure from anyone. When that happens, we'll really be able to show off Shinhwa's unique qualities and music. I feel this way, and so do the other members, all of us have this grand ambition of making this happen. We will work hard to make Shinhwa last even longer and become the definitive Korean idol group."

Such a blueprint may just happen, given the strong unchanging 10-year friendship among the Shinhwa members. Since their debut in 1998, Shinhwa has survived numerous arguments and fights, rumors of disbandings, to become the longest-running idol group in Korean pop history. 2 days before leader Eric enlisted for military duty, the members all cast their hectic schedules aside for a little sending-off gathering.

"Eric has a thoughtful side to him too. Before he enlisted, he didn't ask the members out because he felt that everyone was too busy. But no matter how busy we are, we had to meet him before he left. So all of us came out for drinks and chatted, and we had a great time. Eric doesn't usually say thanks, but that day he did."

[08.10.21][trans] Minwoo: Meeting The Fans (Fansigning)

19 Oct 2008: Fansigning
Meeting The Fans

The fans who have waited since early morning to meet M, nice to see everyone~
The crowds surrounded the record store and Central City was bustling with noise!
Even those who weren't fans were very interested in M's appearance
We really feel very grateful for everyone's support all these years ^^

Ohh......a pretty overseas fan makes her appearance!

"Do I look like this!!" A cute ( ;; ) drawing done by a fan makes M break into laughter

M listening carefully to everything the fans have to say, but please understand if he couldn't respond as it was really noisy there ^^;

Squatting on the chair so that the fans outside can see me.
Can you see me?

If I signed wrongly ummm~ actually I did it on purpose. Keke

The friendly M concentrating hard on signing each copy as if he was preparing for an exam

Halfway through the session he took out a notebook with something scribbled on it
"I'm Kaeganji!" caused a little commotion among the fans (can you see the words? ;; )

He picked out his preferred flavor among some candies that a fan gave to him and sucked on it
"I get attracted to sweet food as I get older."
Umm.... Unknowingly he's already 30, what to do. Keke (ㅠ_ㅠ)

Oh! A male fan! It's a staff member from the record store, who received a queue ticket...
M is popular with men and women, young and old!

The fansigning session was over in a flash. He signed on the banner.
He'll definitely meet everyone again. Thank you to all the fans who have helped us.
You will support us for future fansigning sessions too, won't you? ^^

[08.10.21][news] Seo Seol Hee: Dongwan oppa's message has given me strength

"After seeing Dongwan oppa's encouraging message, I will do my best!"

Prior to setting off on 19th Oct to travel to Manila for the 2008 Miss Earth pageant, 2008 Miss Korea 2nd runner up Seo Seol Hee received a text message of encouragement from her idol, Shinhwa member Kim Dongwan.

The message read, "I hope that you'll be able to do well at the competition in November. Fighting!" Seo Seol Hee had disclosed on an episode on KBS2's Star Golden Bell that she is a Kim Dongwan fan, and when Kim Dongwan got to know about it, he gave her an autographed CD album and after which they got to know each other.

Seo Seol Hee told Sports Hankook in a phone interview, "I'm really glad to know I have the support from Dongwan oppa. I was a crazy fan, and I was even a member of Shinhwa Changjo. I'm really nervous and stressed about the competition, but after the encouragement from oppa, I think I will be able to do well."

[08.10.21][news] M's advice: Live together if you want to last as long as Shinhwa

Shinhwa's Lee Minwoo offered some advice to the juniors during an interview with Edaily SPN, "If you want to be a long-running group, my tip is that you have to live together with your fellow members in a dormitory."

Lee Minwoo is a member of longest-running idol group Shinhwa, which has spent 10 years in showbiz since making their debut in 1998. Not only are they the longest-running group, but they have also established themselves as one of the top idol groups in Korea. Besides their success in group activities, the members have also achieved success in their solo careers. This has made Shinhwa the role model of many younger idol groups.

Lee Minwoo suggested that the first step to being a long-running group is to live together in a dormitory, as it can strengthen their partnership.

"It's not just living together, you have to treat each other like family, like brothers. You can't think of outshining your fellow members and standing out by yourself. No matter who falls behind, you've got to pull him along."

"Besides giving support in spirit, you have to help in terms of material issues if need be. We fought before too, but it's because we've stayed together and understand each other really well that we can stay together for so long."

When leader Eric enlisted for military duty on 9th Oct, Shinhwa members all gathered on 7th Oct for a sending-off dinner despite their hectic schedules.

Lee Minwoo promised the reunion of Shinhwa in another 4 years' time. "Although there will be no group activities for the moment as the members will be enlisting, but we've already built up the Shinhwa brand. We still want to present Shinhwa's music to everyone. We'll create another legend then.

[08.10.21][news] Lee Minwoo: My 4th album is like an anthology of movies

Halfway through the interview, Lee Minwoo suddenly sent out a text message. "Have you reached safely? Take care of yourself and come back healthy....."

It was a message to Eric who was enlisting that very day.

"2 days ago, all six of us and two other friends who were trainees together with us but didn't become part of Shinhwa, we had dinner and drinks together. We were reminiscing about the times we got into trouble, the times before we made our debut, and we just lost track of time. We took a lot of pictures with two disposable cameras we bought, and it felt like a high school gathering."

After Eric, Kim Dongwan is also scheduled to enlist for military duty, which means that fans will not see Shinhwa on stage. Lee Minwoo has also just released his 4th solo album M RIZING.

Although his previous album featured all self-penned tracks, a strong beat suitable for performances and an electronica sound, it did not do as well as expected. Perhaps because of this, the sound of the 4th album is catered more for the mass audience.

"I didn't hear much of my 3rd album being played on the streets, but this time round I hear Don't Trust Men quite often. The 3rd album was produced with a very tight timeline, and I wasn't exactly satisfied with it. This time round we fixed the release date a month ahead. I really like this album a lot and I'm really satisfied with the results."

-- Do you regret the results of your 3rd album?
▲ I wasn't satisified, but then I managed to get songs like The M Style that I use to hype up the mood at concerts. I wanted very badly to create my own style of music and ended up being overly ambitious for the 3rd album. Actually for this album, we hadn't decided on the title track even 2 weeks before the release date and I was really worried. But then luckily we had good feedback about Don't Trust Men, so that was a good thing.

-- You used music from Brave Brother, Kwon Tae Eun, Lee Hyun Do etc. Is this taking a break from writing all your own songs for the 3rd album?
▲ I wanted to take things a little easier, but somehow it ended up being more difficult because I was worried that by doing so I might end up with songs that I'm not happy with. Brave Brother's "Don't Trust Men" talks about men's selfishness towards their girlfriends, and is a melodic and upbeat song that one can dance to. Lee Hyun Do produced "I 'M' U" together with me, and it's a song with a more Miami funk sound with a touch of R&B. Kwon Tae Eun and Jung Joon Ho produced "Wink Show", which is a swing track with a bigband brass accompaniment.

-- Points to look out for on the 4th album
▲ The 4th album feels like an interesting anthology of movies actually. I'll recommend the two songs that I wrote...haha. "Cool Life" that gets people grooving, and I also added some dialect in the intro to make it more interesting. And also "Masquerade" which combines hiphop and opera. I sampled a part of the opera Carmen, and it's a song I wrote after watching Eyes Wide Shut. I reduced the proportion of rap for this song and varied my vocals a little more.

-- "Don't Trust Men" and Taeyang's "Look Only At Me" seems to be quite similar in terms of melody and lyric content
▲ I can only say it sounds similar. Although the melody is totally different, but the rhythm and structure of the song is common across many pop songs now.

-- You seem to have an interest in business.
▲ Entertainers survive on their image. What I can do well is in the field of fashion which I'm very keen on. Compared to making money from showbiz, the revenue from my businesses give me a different kind of satisfaction. I'm now involved in the Wolf M cap business, soon I'll also be launching a fashion brand called MnU. I hope the brand "M" will come to people's minds more than "Lee Minwoo"...

-- You set up your own company called M RIZING, as a musician what is your goal?
▲ This is a space for me to make my own music. I want to be like my seniors Yang Hyun Suk and Park Jin Young, assemble a group of talented composers and also groom young talents. I want to be a musician that the hyungs can be proud of. I've talked to Yang Hyun Suk hyung before about my journey as a singer, and he has given me a lot of advice.

As for actress Kim Min Seon, Lee Minwoo said that she is a loyal friend. "I invited Kim Min Seon to my birthday party, and she wore a really beautiful dress to the party. I thank her for looking so pretty that day." He also said that Kim Min Seon is close to his idea of an ideal girlfriend.

Lee Sungjin also praised Andy for his vocal skills, "Andy's role of Soo Hyun has songs that are rather difficult, but Andy is managing the songs surprisingly well given that he's a rapper in Shinhwa."

Andy said, "Although there's a lot of room for improvement but I'm going to continue acting in musicals. I've developed a passion for singing and acting now."

This episode will be aired on 29th Oct at 12.25am. The musical begins its run on 25th Oct, while Andy will join the cast on 13th November.

[08.10.21][diary] Minwoo's Cyworld: Signing and photoshoot

In the midst of signing

In the office

The photoshoot

Because the smoky eye makeup was too heavy
I cleaned it off with a tissue and went off to the fansigning session
But it seems that I didn't manage to clean everything off~~

Photoshoots are always fun ^^

Ah although I didn't want to reveal my body
But when I jumped up...


Junjin's latest message to Minwoo on Cyworld:

[08.10.20][trans] Minwoo's 4th album jacket shoot #14

Lying topless on the cold floor, doing sit-ups and rolling around
His messy hair (although that's the concept of the shoot) and his dishevelled top... Looking listless

Wooup - Tighten the abs!!

Aigoo~ Aching all over... (M now taking off his shoes)

Hey! Look at my abs!! You can still see it clearly! >_< align="center">

To get a perfect shot he has to make about tens of expressions and poses, until he got facial cramps. But M doesn't show signs of fatigue during the long shoot and simply tries his best. A cool guy who doesn't make complaints like, "Let's stop for a while" or "I can't do this".

Omo! He seems to have frozen~
The charismatic gaze that makes people tremble
The messy hair
And the veins on his arm are popping
Slowly...even someone who's falling asleep can feel it ;(sorry)

Is he closing his eyes to rest for a while? Or is he really sleeping?

Oh! He really fell asleep!!

Feeling lost @_@
Where is this place....Mumbling...

M the only musician who can do a photoshoot while sleeping.

[08.10.20][news] Lee Min Woo, "I like cute women than glamourous ones."

In an interview with SPN, Lee Min Woo talking about his ideal match. "Many of people would think that I would like a glamourous woman but actually my ideal match would be a cute woman."

Lee Min Woo was on the KBS 2TV Happy Sunday's "Kko Kko Single" which aired on the 5th. After having a kissing scene with Amy while scuba diving, there was misunderstanding that they might be dating each other.

In regards to this, Lee Min Woo said, "I have known Amy for a long time and I consider her as a cute younger sister. As we meet here and there to eat, it could be interpreted incorrectly that we are dating." He said the truth is that they are not dating.

As he smiled, "I'm not that young any more. People who are in music spend a lot of time alone so it's easy to feel lonely. I wish that I could date freely as I can make music. I would like for the fans to give me a bit of a lead way in this area."

Lee Min Woo has released his 4th album and his currently promoting "Don't Trust Men". "Don't Trust Men" is in the currently trendy Dirty South genre which shows the mind set of a bad man who holds onto a woman he dosen't love.

In this concert, other than the Korean fans, including the Japanese and China fans, there’re more than 6,000 fans enjoying Shin Hyesung’s nearly 3 hours concert performance. During the concert, Shin Hyesung uses his usual friendly tone to communicate with the fans with his love for his fans.

During the afternoon at 6, he appeared on the stage by sitting on a swing from the top, and what surprised the fans is that Shin Hyesung begins his magnificent performance with the song ‘Everything’ which is a track from his 1st album.

Shin Hyesung’s first greetings to his fans, “I’m still a newcomer in terms of holding concerts but gradually, I feel the joy of holding concerts” and “I will not disappointed those who have came here, I will present all of you an interesting performance” and after finished saying this, the concert officially started.

Before the concert, Shin Hyesung expressed his determination, “Rather than activities, I will want to present more of myself as a singer’ during the reporter conference. And based on what he exclaimed, he has successfully presented different kinds of appearances through his singing.

Shin Hyesung expressed that other than performing those songs that are recorded under his solos, he will also be singing “Don't you know” that is recorded under the OST of the MBC drama, “Super Rookie” acted by Eric and also “Echo” and “Purple Rain” which is recorded under Project albums and this resulted in overwhelming response from the audiences.

In addition, as a member from a popular boy band, Shinhwa, he displayed his gorgeous dancing ability with songs “Center” and “Hidden camera” and also uses Seo Taiji and the boys’ “Classroom Idea (Gyoshil Idea)” to display his rocker image. And through songs such as “Change the World” and “End of the Road, he demonstrate his image as a Jazz singer which heat up the concert’s atmosphere.

Besides him, popular girl band, Wonder Girls, singer Kim Gun Mo, Park Chang Guen and others are also performing together which add more colors to the concert.

After the duet “A Good Day to Love” between Wonder Girls member, See Ye and Shin Hyesung, Wonder Girls didn’t appear on the stage for nearly 10 minutes with ‘dissatisfaction of the stage equipped’ as a reason and this really startled Shin Hyesung.

However during the period waiting for Wonder Girls, Shin Hyesung started to dance Wonder Girls’ “Tell Me”, “So Hot”, “Nobody” and other dance tracks with his dancing experience (familiarity). The fans enjoy it very much and were well-received with applauses.

Moreover, during the performing of, “Awaken” from his 3rd album in this concert, Shin Hyesung’s microphone has no sound due to technical error. “If such thing happen, the coming performances will become better, isn’t this the pro of Live (performance)?” Shin Hyesung who joke with the fans, re-sings the song “Awaken” again.

Although Shin Hyesung left the stage after singing the encore song, “Same Thought”, which is the title song of his 1st album, however many fans still remain seated on their seats and reluctant to leave for quite some while as they continued calling out Shin Hyesung’s name.
