[INFO] SJ Made a Surprise by Performing Gee

The male group Super Junior made a surprise transformation into Girls' Generation and brought lots of excitement.
On the 18th, at 6 PM, Super Junior opened a performance titled The 2nd ASIA TOUR 'SUPER SHOW II' at the Seoul Olympic Stadium Complex.

On this day, Super Junior transformed into Girls' Generation and did a perfect cover of 'gee,' receiving exploding reactions starting from the audience.

Super Junior went on the stage with colorful skinny jeans and wigs copying the hairstyles of the Girls' Generation members.

Kangin was KangFany, Heechul was HeeSica, Ryeowook was SeoWook, Kyuhyun was KyuYoung, and Donghae was YoonHae, all making parodies of the Girls' Generation members' names and perfectly following the Girls' Generation choreography, bringing about roars of laughter.

Heechul in particular, who had taken the lead to produce this performance himself and to make the members practice, even made an exact imitation Jessica's coldness and drew lots of attention.

On this day's performance, the Girls' Generation members who had come to watch also couldn't help but to laugh after seeing the 'gee' performance, and ended up having lots of fun.

Meanwhile, on a stage with an extremely small distance from the audience, Super Junior gave a mix of dance, ballad, and even trot, presenting a performance of much variety.

With every dance step and every song, the fans responded with enthusiastic cheers, creating an amazing concert, and at the very end of the concert, tears welled in the members' eyes, showing their thankful hearts.

The Super Junior concert, which had started on the 17th, is planned to end on the 19th, making 3 performances for 3 days.

2PM not coming to Malaysia, 2AM to perform at after party

According to a reliable source, who works at a local recording company, Korean boyband 2PM will not be coming to Malaysia in August...but 2AM will.

Not coming: After getting the devastating news that they aren't
coming to Malaysia, the 2PM boys experience a brief break down
where they get in touch with, feminine side.

The boy’s boss JYP tweet-ted that he will be sending 2PM to the 2009 MTV Asia Awards in Malaysia this August.

That was before we discovered that the MTV Asia Awards has been scrapped and is being replaced by the MTV World Stage Live In Malaysia.

JYP a.k.a The Asian Soul has since removed his tweet announcing the matter.

After party entertainers: 2AM mourns the love of their
beloved fans as they are only scheduled to perform at
the post-party

However, our source tells us that 2AM will instead be coming to Malaysia. The Confession of a Friend singers will not perform at the show but will be taking the stage at the by-invitation-only after party.


Down with MTV World Stage Live In Malaysia. Bring back the MTV Asia Awards! :-P

2PM Wild Bunny - Episode 1

Yes it's out and it's subbed!!! Thanks so much to the time2sub team for subbing this so quickly! My heartfelt thanks to all your hard work guys! ^^

With the exit of the 2PM boys from promoting their songs, they have more time for variety and here they are having their own show. Mnet Wild Bunny was supposed to be an scripted show but due to the acting (or lack there of, lol XD) of the members, the PD's chose to let them do what they want, which for me is more fun actually. ^^

Calling the show "wild" sure hits the mark because the boys just went all out doing whatever in this show, lol! XD They shed the idol stereotype and just became hot boys ready to party! ^^ They stole their manager's wallet and car keys, went to eat street foods, drink some alcohol, sing in noraebang and went clubbing. Now that's being free!

Kim Bum's New Drama - Dream

Hope this drama will do well with Kim Bum giving up on some projects to focus on this one. ^^

'Dream' to Depict the World of Sports Business

By Han Sang-hee
Staff Reporter

The local drama scene has been offering a bit of everything, from the ancient tale of a queen, to advertising companies and figure skating. The new drama ``Dream'' will add the world of sports agents and K-1 to this varied roster of local television dramas.

The drama has caught attention with its impressive cast― singer-turned-actor Son Dam-bi, ``Boys Over Flowers'' actor Kim Bum and movie star Ju Jin-mo ― and a plot that follows the lives of a sports agent and K-1 fighters.

Nam Je-il, played by Ju, is a successful sports agent with some famous clients, but when one of his baseball stars gets involved in a drug case, he loses everything. But when the miserable Nam befriends former pickpocket and aspiring K-1 fighter Lee Jang-seok, played by Kim, and taebo instructor Park So-yeon, acted by Son, he decides to regain his glory by making Lee a star.

SBS had nicknamed Ju's character ``Korea's Jerry Maguire,'' referencing the charismatic agent played by Tom Cruise, but Ju said it was difficult to play the part that has been his own personal favorite.

``After seeing my first shoot, I couldn't bear to look at myself. I looked so tense and nervous acting as the successful Nam. I finally decided to be myself and act as natural as possible,'' Ju said at a press conference last week in Busan.

In order to bring a sense of reality to his character, who shouts into the phone and runs around giving pep talks to his players, Ju worked alongside real agents.

Son, whose acting debut in Hollywood was postponed because of the economic crisis, said she chose to star in ``Dream'' as soon as she heard about who had been cast. Debuting alongside such famous colleagues was a burden, according to Son, but her fellow actors and staff complimented her for bringing energy to the set.

``I was never a good dancer, but now I'm a dance singer. I think it's the same with acting. I have been training as an actor during my spare time for the past four years. There's no one who's good at it from the start, and so I'm doing my best to not fall behind,'' she said.

Son's character, Park, is a bit of a tomboy. Taebo is an aerobic exercise that is closely related with the martial art taekwondo. Son, already slim-figured, eventually became a big fan of the exercise and was more than eager to offer it to fellow women.

``I lost about three to four kilograms, and it's a great way to lose weight. I've been dancing for a long time, but when I first tried taebo, I couldn't move the next day, which proves how much exercise it can be,'' she said, laughing.

The biggest transformation for the new series is that of Kim, who portrayed a pretty and rich museum heir in the hit drama Boys Over Flowers. Not only will he play a tough K-1 athlete, but a sad and lonely figure with a dark past.

``My character Lee is a nice person who doesn't want to come across as weak. He pretends to be tough and mean to protect himself. As he learns K-1, he finally realizes the importance of relationships and starts to open up,'' Kim said.

The drama is also expected to usher a new chapter of hallyu, or Korean Wave, in Japan, as the crew and staff also held a press conference in Tokyo to attract buyers and broadcasters.

``We cannot confirm the exact Japanese broadcaster, but the drama will start airing in Japanese households as well. This will be a great opportunity for local dramas, as many consider hallyu to be taking a downturn,'' an official from SBS said.

Thanks to the interest from Japan and also being a program about sports, ``Dream'' will also have two-time K-1 World MAX champion Masato make a special appearance in the drama, the first time for the 30-year-old to appear in a local drama.

Written by writer Jung Hyung-soo (Prince of the Legend, 2006) and produced by Baek Soo-chan (Golden Bride, 2007), ``Dream'' airs every Monday and Tuesday at 9:55 p.m. on SBS.
