Controversies at Dream Concert – JYPE, 2PM and Jay Park

23 May

I thought the day I will talk about the departure of Jay Park from 2PM and the controversies surrounding the incident is far away. But alas, the day had come. A little bit unexpected, but I think I should have my say now. [Even if nobody is reading this. I just need a channel to rant. Excusez-moi.]

Okay. First thing first. I am a 2PM fan. A JYPE supporter. I supported every single artist under the label. From the former to the latter. You name it, god, Bi, Byul, Wonder Girls, 2AM, 2PM, JOO, Min, G-Soul, Im Jeong Hee, and several others and even the CEO himself, JYP. I might be biased writing this, but I’m being as natural as I can be.

Firstly, I’m not going around blaming Jay Park  for what had been happening to 2PM lately, but seriously, to those narrow-minded fans in Korea [oh, you know who you are], just leave that boy alone already!

Why are you chanting his name, for the love of GOD? Do you lot really need to do this?

  1. IF you are not pleased by 2PM’s behaviour and attitude at that bloody conference…
  2. IF you are not pleased by the rumour that JYPE bought $50,000 or more of 2PM CD’s so that they could win on Music Shows…
  3. IF you are not pleased that Music Bank and Inkigayo changed their point system to determine the winner…
  4. IF you think that they stole some other singer/band awards on music shows…
  5. IF you think they did not have any right to perform anymore…

then, WHY, do you have to use Jay Park’s name in order to HURT the boys? The boy had been bravely accepting the damages he had done in the past, had tried to get on his feet again and were trying his best to move on with his life. Do you think he would love to see on the internet, people shouting his name to hurt those he once held dear in his heart?

Secondly, if you are expecting some kind of apology from 2PM because of their behaviour at the conference, then bash them. Don’t bash anyone else. When they got on any stage, just stay put and quiet. Silence is the new loud, you know? And as much as I wanted to say this, I think it’s useless for me to tell to them to put yourself in their shoes. It is useless, and will be forever useless to say this because these people care more about themselves. Demand an apology? HAH! Why do you even need an apology? Did they fucked up your life? No. Of course not.

Do you think the boys were not upset at all during the conference? Do you think nobody told them to watch out whatever they were going to say? Do you think the boys were not tired because of what had happened? Do you think the boys were happy for the fact that they were left with 6 members because Jay Park decided to quit?

Why do you think Jay Park quit in the first place? Why do you think the boys had to let him go?

For all of these questions, we DO NOT know the definite answers. Only God and them knew. When we didn’t know anything, the turmoil in their hearts, how can we judge them? How can we, a mere third-party on the sideline, decide that they were right or wrong? We are not GOD. We don’t have the right.

Thirdly, if it’s true that JYPE bought those CD, so what? Did he bought the CDs using your money? He used his own money, I bet. And yes, I know that’s morally wrong. But I am someone who believes in karma. If he did wrong, it won’t be long when he got his punishment. Oh, if you said this incident is the punishment for JYP for hoarding the CDs, then JYP really has luck by his side. He had been doing things that was worse, and the punishment was just a… very small price to pay?

But why would a smart CEO waste his time and money hoarding CDs in order to let the boys win on music shows? A theoretical question though, what if the rumour was spread by JYPE themselves? Bad publicity is still a publicity. [Sarcasm intended]

Fourthly, if you are not pleased Music Bank and Inkigayo changed their format, go in front of their building and stage a strike or a protest. Didn’t you all have lots of time to spare in your hands? Besides, MBC or SBS had the reputation to listen to their audience’s voice more than they did listen to the artists or company labels. They’ll sure convert the system back to the one they used the last time.

Fifthly, stealing is bad. But what to do? The MCs presented them the awards. Should they step aside and say ‘We can’t accept the awards because we stole it’ ? Oh, come on! That’s the way of life. Other people’s loss is somebody else’s gain. Geez, grow up already [even though I know these people won’t]. We did not live in world that is black and white. Everything is grey.

Next, if they don’t have the right to perform, then why on Earth there were people who turned up for their Guerilla Concert? The one where Taec shed his manly tears for the first time on stage. There were still people or fans who still like [if not LOVE] them, and as far as I am concerned, fans kept a band alive. Zero fans, and you are out of the industry. Like Nichkhun said,

We’re living coz we have you.

I felt sorry for both 2PM members and Jay Park for the ugly turns in their respective lives. But they were trying to move on.

Why can’t we?

TOP and Shin Min Ah SCANDAL…!

13 May

Aigoo, so KBS Entertainment Relay covered the scandal. They even talked to the photographer who was responsible to come out with the pictures. I can’t believe my own ears (or rather, eyes, as I watched the subtitles) when she said she has been following them, and the source of the scandal was from an insider in Big Bang’s (I think she means the people who were around Big Bang, coordinator, manager or stylist etc etc).

Here is the clip, courtesy to Ahboo/droxfil @ Youtube. Interesting, but, hmm… a little bit upsetting? XD

Solbi would say yes if Andy initiates a relationship!

6 May

Big NEWS! 😀 I am reposting this from Andy Lee’s Official Thread in Soompi, originally posted by aindy. Thanks for this very happy piece of news!

Andy Solbi

7th May 2008 – The spotlight falls on Solbi as she expresses her liking for Andy.

On the May 6th episode 5 of KBS2’s Sang Sang Plus Season 2, Shinhwa members Kim Dongwan and Junjin appeared as guests, and mischievously asked MC Solbi, “If Andy initiates a relationship, would you agree?”

Solbi’s answer was a clear “Yes”.

She added, “Andy’s private life needs to be protected”. When asked what about Andy she likes, she replied “I like guys with nice butts, Andy has a nice butt.”

When she was asked if she meets up with Andy outside of work, she confessed that “We really don’t, Andy’s actually more of a loner than I imagined.”

With regards to phone calls, she said, “There was once when I called him after his work was done to tell him ‘Oppa, you’ve been working really hard’.”

Rounding off the topic, Solbi said “Andy’s the perfect husband to any girl.” Solbi and Andy are currently appearing on MBC’s We Got Married as a newlywed couple, and their natural behaviour as a couple has become a hot topic as viewers continue to speculate if they are really an item.

As a fan of Andy and Solbi myself, I would love to see them together. And since it has come to this point, all eyes should be directed to Andy, no? Andy-ya~, are you listening? 😛

In Denial: YG Entertainment and V.I.Ps

2 May

I’m finished with my presentation, and I’m back with a slightly better mood and a hungry stomach. (Stop grumbling! XD)

The day wasn’t really over in Korea but YG Entertainment was sure FAST! They denied the rumours of TOP, a member of Big Bang and Shim Min Ah dating, opposed to the allegation made by the media, i.e. Sports Seoul. Shin Min Ah’s management agency had denied the rumours as well, but what’s buggering me was that it’s their MANAGEMENT agencies who denied the rumours, not them themselves. As a fellow WonderBang family, chae_gyeong 01 in WonderBang thread in Soompi said, I do agree YG’s statement was a bit fishy. Quoting from Coolsmurf’s Domain again,

YG Entertainment said in an interview with SPN Edaily, “Big Bang has been busy with their activities, thus this scandal is bordering on the ridiculous. Although we still need to verify this but I can assure you that nothing of this is true.”

Note the bolded part, so they STILL need to verify the issue from TOP? Aigooo~ isn’t it just, FISHY?

Even V.I.Ps was so shocked because of the news. Well, I think it was safe to say the first time you read the news you’ll be like, ‘What? Can’t be!’ and then as you scrolled down the pages, ‘Oh my God, is this true?’ and when you scrolled down further to see the pics, you’ll just exclaim to yourself, ‘I can’t BELIEVE this!’

That’s the case with me… :sigh:

I thought I might as well congratulate TOP for finding a special one in his life, but I really doesn’t have the heart to do so. LOL. Maybe in next post. Or next. Or next. We’ll see to that.

TOP of Big Bang and Shin Min Ah dating????

2 May

Ah, today must be really my unlucky day. First my presentation was rescheduled to be exactly in 2 hours from now instead of Friday next week and suddenly TOP’s recent scandal broke, and to make it urm… unbelievable is because it’s him and Shin Min Ah. Surprised wasn’t really appropriate to represent my feelings now, its more a VAST understatement. Bloody hell, I’m utterly and speechlessly shocked…! O_o

If there is an award for the most shocking news for the last month, I’ll give that to this one. XD I know I’m being mean, but well… a WonderBang shipper I am if this scandal was true then the possibility of Yoo Bin and him hooking up together will be reduced to (maybe) 1%! If you wanted to read more about the news, I suggest you drop by to Coolsmurf’s Domain (the link can be found under Visit Me! widget in the right column, far down). So here is the alleged pictures (credit to SPORT SEOUL) of them caught in a way to date (or after date) and although I can’t really see the connection (or maybe I’m in denial as well) it does seem, yeah, of course paparazzi-ish and a bit real? XD OMG what’s happening to me?

Shin Min Ah and TOP
