JYJ’s Seoul concert had a mammoth economic impact~


JYJ Going Strong!;

Recently, JYJ has been recieving criticism for the major flaws in their most recent concert in Seoul; as well as ciriticism from American Music Critics regarding their ‘Ayyy Girl’ collaboration with Kanye West.
But all the negative press did not make their fans waver one bit. As you can see, JYJ is going strong.
Most of their fame is gained from their activities in TVXQ, where the five boys achieved a level of Hallyu fame that no other boy group has been able to beat. They were the one, and only: DBSK.
Even near the end of their careers as DBSK, they did not seem like they were starting to fade, still shining as bright as ever.
They were my first Kpop obsession, and the deepest in my heart.

Through JYJ’s ‘Worldwide Concert in Seoul’, held recently on November 27th and 28th, the trio once again showcased their popularity among international fans, and proved why they are considered the central axis of the Hallyu Wave. Continue reading

SNSD introduces new line dance concept in Shibuya~


LONG LEGS MUCH;?

If you stare at the picture for awhile, it becomes apparent that it was photoshopped. There is no way that all of their legs are the same length. Sure, they’re still different heights… but their legs are exactly the same length. Which of course, we know is not true and would be one heck of a coink-a-dink, dontcha think? O:

SNSD will be making Japan’s Christmas season shine bright with a new large-scale illumination electric display to be put up in the middle of Shibuya.

According to SM Entertainment, the illumination will be up on the exterior of Shibuya’s representative fashion building, Shibuya 109, starting from November 30th.

SNSD signed a contract with Shibuya 109 to celebrate this Christmas season for exactly one month, lasting until December 25th.

Representatives of SM Entertainment stated, “In the illumination, the girls are shown with their new and modern ‘line dance’ concept fit for the Christmas season. We are predicting a hot response. SNSD has been attracting attention not only for their choreography, but their fashion as well, and are highly popular amongst Japanese teens and 20s. This illumination will capture the attention of the people walking the streets of Shibuya.
