BEAST ‘Bad Girl’ MV released

The full MV version to Cube Ent’s new boyband BEAST’s debut song ‘Bad Girl’ has finally been revealed.

This is definitely one group to look out for this year.

The release date for K-pop group SHINee’s new mini-album has been put off by three days to October 22, according to their agency on Monday.

“We found problems to several songs on the albums so we had to recall every copy to make new ones,” SM Entertainment said in a press release. The albums were set to go on sale today.

SM added that however, the digital versions to all six tracks listed in “2009, Year of Us” were released on online music sites including Melon and Dosirak.

“Ring Ding Dong,” the title song to SHINee’s third mini-album revealed earlier last week, has been receiving favorable response — topping the online charts of music websites Mnet and Dosirak over the weekend.

SHINee, one of the most popular idol groups in Korea, has had several K-pop hits, most notably their debut single “Older Girl, You’re So Pretty” and the recent chart topper “Juliette” from their previous mini-album released in May.

SHINee’s Minho was one of the guests on KBS2TV’s “Chitchat of Beauties” on the 19th along with his fellow group members, Jonghyun and Onew.

While the beautiful ladies from different countries talked about dating younger men they said, “Guys mature slower so we need to date older men so that our maturity levels are the same.”

Minho responded to this by saying, “That’s prejudice. It’s a stereotype that guys mature slower. It’s not always true. If you dated one, you’d think differently.”

Cute Minho also said, “I know about women. I know that they’re not men,” which made everyone laugh.

A fellow beauty supported Minho by saying, “I’ve always dated men younger than me. I’m more comfortable with younger men or men the same age as me. It makes me feel more powerful.”

Maybe Minho speaks from experience.

rvdlk6.jpgEntertainment companies, including YG Entertainment, were ordered to correct their unfair contracts after a government inspection by the Korean Fair Trade Commission (FTC).

FTC announced on the 20th that 198 contracts between an entertainer and their company were corrected after their inspection on 20 entertainment companies. The inspection was carried out from April to May of this year.

For example, YG deleted the clause that reads “After the day that the contract between the company and the entertainer ends, the company is relieved from the duty to pay royalties from recorded materials to the entertainer and all proceeds from said materials belong to the company,” meaning that YG’s entertainers can now receive royalties from the songs they made with YG even after they leave the company. YG also changed the clause that reads “Entertainer must receive permission of the company in order to travel outside of Korea” to “Entertainer must inform of their out-of-country travel plans to the company beforehand to not cause any disruptions in management planning process,” meaning that YG’s entertainers like Big Bang and 2NE1 now may travel outside of the country without YG’s permissions.

Entertainers are now given the right to retire at will as well. “Entertainer may not cease performance or retire during the life of the contract without permission of the company” was changed to “If entertainer seeks to cease performance or retire during the life of the contract, the company and the entertainer may discuss the topic.” “Entertainer must use their talent and skills in accordance with the company’s decisions” was changed to “Entertainer must perform by fully employing their talent and skill, and the company must aid the entertainer with appropriate opportunities,” giving entertainers a bit more legal freedom with their decision making.

Overall, clauses that overly invade an entertainer’s privacy, invade an entertainer’s right to be a part of the decision making process for their career and performances, and clauses that force entertainers to perform for the company’s promotional activities without compensation and without consent of the entertainer were corrected.

This is a step towards a better environment for Korean entertainers, but this is just a small step. Merely 20 entertainment companies were inspected and corrected, as 320 companies under Korean Entertainment Producers Association were not a part of this inspection. FTC acknowledges the fact that unfair contracts are common in the entertainment industry and plans on directing the association in inspecting and correcting its members. It may be hard to imagine SM giving freedom to its entertainers, especially after the whole Kangin fiasco, but one day SNSD will be free to travel to Canada, to hang out with me without having to receive SM’s approval. One day.

Asian pop sensation Rain, set to appear on CNN’s “Talk Asia” this week, was invited on the show after being selected as a representative figure of Korea, according to his agency on Monday.

CNN decided that the 27-year-old singer and actor plays a leading role in promoting Korea globally and picked him to appear on the show during this week’s “Eye on South Korea”, a week-long special program focusing on various aspects of the country including its economy and culture, J.Tune Entertainment explained in a press release.

Anna Coren, one of CNN’s main anchorwomen, met with Rain to talk about his career, personal life, his ongoing Asia tour and upcoming Hollywood film “Ninja Assassin”.

The show, set to air on Wednesday, will also contain a documentary-type segment featuring Rain’s concert in Korea on October 9 — containing footage from behind the scenes and the concert itself.

Rain started his career with major talenthouse JYP Entertainment but left the agency in November 2007 to start his own entertainment company J. Tune Entertainment.

He has released several albums in Korea and starred in movies and TV series, most notably dramas “Full House” and “Sang Doo! Let’s Go To School.”

He debuted in Hollywood last year with a supporting role in “Speed Racer” and will star in the upcoming “Ninja Assassin”, which is set for a worldwide release in November.

Celebrity siblings must be the trend in Korea.

It looks like Xiah Jun-su’s brother Kim Jun-ho is currently preparing to debut as a singer. Word is that Jun-su has personally asked singer The One to be his older brother’s vocal trainer, to which The One has agreed. Apparently, Kim Jun-ho has already been attaining acting lessons for the past three years and has had already been on stage as a musical actor.

There’s no news yet, as to when the 188 cm tall twin sibling of Jun-su will make his official debut as a singer but judging from the media attention he’s getting, it looks like his debut isn’t too far away.

But will Kim Jun-ho be able to garner as much fame as his DBSK member sibling, Jun-su?
