Shinhwa’s Kim Dong-wan tells Amy to shut the front door

Posted by diopatra on July 12, 2009

Kim Dong-wan, literally tells Amy to shut her mouth already and stop telling stories about her relationship with Min-woo to the media.

As some of you may have already known, Amy and Shinwha’s Min-woo, used to be a pair but broke up not too long ago. Looks like Amy’s been running her mouth off and complaining about what kind of guy Min-woo was. In a recent media interview she stated,

“I’m the type of person that likes to share everything and give everything I can, but he (Min-woo) wasn’t. Later on, he started to say things that weren’t true, seeing him make excuses so often made me decide to end our relationship.”

Min-woo’s good friend and fellow Shinhwa member, Kim Dong-wan, who is currently serving his term in the army, just couldn’t stand Amy running her mouth anymore and left her a detailed message on his blog. In his blog entry titled, “Amy”, stating,

” Even when watching (the way you act) from a far distance, your actions were always different and weird. Forgive Min-woo for not being able to understand the world you live in and try to understand him. Don’t go around telling others, even in a personal conversation, that all Min-woo has been doing is making excuses (in order to absolve himself from the situation). Like you would know (him) better than all of us that have been together (with Min-woo) for the past 12 years. And, to see that, the Min-woo we know, has been giving you excuses, I’m certain and can confide that he felt that much difficult to be around you. In the future, when you have interviews, leave out any topics that have to do with Min-woo. Talking about your estranged lover, publicly, even if the person isn’t a celebrity is not just unsensible and ignorant but sleazy/shoddy behavior.”

Shinhwa’s Lee Minwoo has attracted attention with his announcement that he is currently grooming the second Shinhwa.

During a recent interview with Star News, Lee Minwoo said, “I’m now grooming a batch of new singers, and my goal is to groom a second Shinhwa.” Lee Minwoo has been involved in production since setting up his entertainment management agency MRizing Entertainment.

“The title song has already been chosen. I hope to create a boyband-group like Shinhwa.”

He further explained his point of view, “The concept of the new groups these days tend to overlap, and it’s difficult to do well. The attractiveness of the pop music of this generation has declined, thus it will be very important to find a distinct color to the group’s music.”

When asked about the driving force behind his challenge to create the second Shinhwa, Lee Minwoo said, “Because the Shinhwa members all believe me.”

Lee Minwoo also expressed his hopes, “The relationship between the Shinhwa members is such that, for every one thing any of us receives, we will give two things in return. Because of this implied agreement between us, we have faith in each other’s music and performances. Being an original member of the original Shinhwa, I hope that I can groom them in such a way that they grow with some of our distinct characteristics, and it will be best if they can be a source of strength to us in future.”

Lee Minwoo has just released his new mini-album ‘Minnovation’ on 23rd June.

Singer Lee Minwoo shared his thoughts about the release of his new album via his Cyworld minihompy.

On 23rd June, Lee Minwoo posted a diary entry on his minihompy, saying “Today’s the birthday of the Minnovation mini-album,” and also “If there are nervous moments, it’s when the album goes on sale and when I have my first performance”, clearly displaying his excitement.

“The reason I can’t get to sleep.. It has to be a good present, that’s what I’m hoping.. Because of that… Tonight is going to get even rougher,” he wrote.

Lee Minwoo told Star News on 24th June in an interview that he’s been using his minihompy and online messenger more regularly. “I understand that I can communicate more closely with my fans through my minihompy, so I’ve been leaving messages and uploading photos, and sharing my stories with the fans.”

“I thought that the online messenger can only be used for chatting, but I found out recently about convenient features such as file transfer. It’s fun to find out about these new features.”

He added, “In fact, I used to think that the computer is used mainly for producing music, but now that I know about the new features, I’ll make use of them to communicate more actively with the fans.”

Lee Shi Young’s boyfriend Junjin (real name Park Choong Jae) said in an interview that in 10 years’ time, he “will be happily married with kids”.

After Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, Shanghai and Chengdu, Junjin performed at the last stop of his Asian tour in Beijing on 20th June. Having admitted to dating Lee Shi Young a day earlier on 19th June, Junjin was interviewed by Chinese online portal Sohu, and talked about his girlfriend Lee Shi Young.

During the interview, with regards to his public declaration, he said, “I feel good. I’m curious to know what my fans think about my girlfriend.”

When asked about how Shinhwa would be like 10 years from now, Junjin said, “10 years later we’ll still be on stage, we’ll all be happily married with adorable children.”

Though Junjin didn’t specifically talk about marriage plans, he mentioned in the interview that it was love at first sight for him, and because of that, they were more natural in their portrayal of a married couple on MBC variety show ‘We Got Married’.

Lee Si Young punished for falling in love

Posted by diopatra on June 25, 2009

We reported earlier about JunJin (28) and Lee Si Young (27) falling in love on We Got Married and they themselves have confirmed their relationship through a series of interviews over the past few days. Then there was talk that there was going to be a press conference today where JunJin and Lee Si Young would make their relationship public but that was seemingly cancelled or denied by the both of them as being untrue and a misinterpretation. But their actions are apparently having a serious impact on Lee Si Young’s career which just took off this year.

Lee Si Young was thought to have been the female lead for MBC’s Hand Signal drama, which will premiere on 5th September. But Lee Si Young’s management got a call from MBC on the 23rd, saying that Lee Si Young has been dropped from the drama totally.

Lee Si Young’s management was perplexed at this sudden turn of events as Lee Si Young had cleared the auditions held in late May, and got a confirmation from the production company that she will be the female lead. Since then, Lee Si Young has been preparing herself in earnest for her drama. But after her relationship with JunJin was revealed, the production company are acting as if nothing has ever happened before. In addition, CFs that are currently being filmed have also been stopped.

According to an insider, “Lee Si Young’s promising career might be stopped in it’s tracks because of her relationship with JunJin being made public. Although falling in love isn’t a sin, screenwriter (of Hand Signal), Im Sung Han who likes to be very secretive, must have been angered by the exposure of Lee Si Young’s relationship with JunJin.”

A check with a staff from the production team of Hand Signal revealed, “Screenwriter Im Sung Han has absolute authority to allocate the roles accordingly with his script. Although Lee Si Young was under consideration for the role, but because no contract has been signed, we reserve the right to change the cast around at anytime.”

Another revealed, “Screenwriter Im Sung Han has always been highly secretive about his work. Take his last work, Ah Hyun Dong’s Madam, the male and female leads were only revealed just before the drama was shown on television. Even when the drama was airing, he prohibited the media from interviewing his male and female leads. With the news of Lee Si Young being the female lead of Hand Signal being revealed beforehand without his permission coupled with the news of Lee Si Young dating JunJin, Im Sung Han must be really hopping mad and thus decided to drop her in the end.”
