On 28 November, it was revealed that three popular Korean groups have been unofficially confirmed for the “62nd NHK Kouhaku Utagassen.” They are Shoujo Jidai and KARA, who made their major debut in Japan last year, and Tohoshinki who restarted their activities in January this year. The two girl groups are appearing for the first time (in Kouhaku Utagassen.) Each of these groups have topped the Oricon weekly rankings this year, and the “Korean Power” that has taken over the Japanese music industry has accomplished their entrance into the Kouhaku.

(Irrelevant Parts Omitted)

Also, Tohoshinki, who had two previous appearances, took the top spot with their single “Why? (Keep Your Head Down)” which was released in January and with their unchanging popularity, after two years, have been unofficially confirmed for their first appearance after restarting activities.

With the strong Korean influence, young hallyu star Jang Geun Suk(24), male groups Supernova, 2PM and SHINee were also shortlisted, but in the end three groups are expected to be confirmed.

NEWS KARA, TVXQ Nominated For Japan Record Awards

KARA – The Korea Herald

TVXQ – SM Entertainment

Tohosomnia.net writes:

K-pop groups KARA and TVXQ have been nominated for the top prize of the 53rd Japan Record Awards, while 2NE1 has been nominated for Best New Artist, the awards committee announced on Saturday.  

A major music awards show held annually in Japan, the Japan Record Awards is organized and hosted by the Japan Composer’s Association.
Ten acts have been nominated for the top award this year, including Nishino Kana, Mizumori Kaori, Hikawa Kiyoshi, and AKB48. KARA has been nominated for “Go Go Summer!” while TVXQ is being for “Why? (Keep Your Head Down)” All of the nominees automatically share the Best Song award, and the top prize winner will be announced on the day of the ceremony.
KARA debuted in Japan in 2010, and received the New Artist of the Year Award from the Japan Gold Disc Awards the same year. The group released two studio albums and five singles in Japan since their debut. Their third Japanese single, “Jet Coaster Love” topped the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart during its first week of release.
TVXQ, on the other hand, has topped the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart nine times since their Japanese debut in 2005. Initially a five-member group, TVXQ returned as a duo consisting of Yunho and Changmin in January, after the three original members ― Jae-joong, Yoochun, and Junsu ― left the group over a dispute about their 13-year contract with S.M. Entertainment back in 2009. After their return in January with a new Japanese single “Why (Keep Your Head Down),” the duo also released a Japanese studio album titled “TONE” in September. The full-length album sold more than 200,000 copies during its first week of release.  
Meanwhile, 2NE1, which just had a highly successful concert in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Saturday, has been nominated for the Best New Artist prize, along with three Japanese musicians ― Ito Miyu, Super Girls, and Fairies. Like the top prize nominees, the four Best New Artist prize nominees are automatically given a New Artist prize, with the Best New Artist winner honored on the awards night.
The girl group debuted in Japan in September with their mini-album “Nolza.” The album topped Japan’s Oricon chart the same week. They held their first Japanese concert, “1st Live Concert: Nolza in Japan” at Yokohama Arena on Sept. 19 and 20.
Last year, Girls’ Generation was nominated for the Best New Artist, and Big Bang was one of 10 artists to get a Best Song award, for “Tell Me Goodbye.”
The awards ceremony is scheduled to be broadcast live through Japan’s TBS at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 30.

Translation 111119 A K-Pop Cafe Opens In Myeong-dong, The Heart of Seoul

[Trans] 111119 A K-Pop Cafe Opens In Myeong-dong, The Heart Of Seoul

A K-pop attraction that recently opened in Myeong-dong, the heart of Seoul, has become a hot topic.

‘Kstory’ promises to provide a unique display of over 100 personal signatures from K-pop stars, as well as outfits and bags that the stars use on and off stage.

It isn’t easy for overseas K-pop fans to see personal signatures from K-pop stars and ‘Kstory’ gives them the opportunity to see what the signatures of groups like Girls’ Generation and KARA look like with their own eyes.

‘Kstory’ provides a variety of attractions. Korean albums, which are hard to find in Japan, are sold at inexpensive prices. With these albums costing a third of what fans would pay when buying Korean albums in Japan, it would be smart to visit this store to stock up on CDs when visiting Korea.

Fans will also be able to purchase all DVDs that are being sold in Korea. The owner of this store has worked as the manager of many celebrities for over twenty years and is Gang Chan, the CEO of Chani Music. Hallyu stars visit ‘Kstory’ often as he is friends with many of them. If one is lucky, one may even be able to bump into their favorite star during a visit.

As the store has become a place that is often used by Korean reporters when interviewing singers, fans may also be able to see stars sharing intimate stories with these reporters.

One corner of the store is a cafe so fans will be able to enjoy a variety of caffeinated drinks in comfy seats. Fans may find themselves sharing a cup of coffee with a famous star and can take a breather while watching the music videos that are playing.

Currently, over 100 limited edition CDs with personal signatures from stars such as Girls’ Generation, Super Junior, KARA, JYJ, Wondergirls, 2PM, FT Island, 4Minute, Secret and After School have been set up around the store while accessories, personal items and stage outfits are also on display.

[TRANS] 111026 The Japanese Media Says, “The Japanese Music Industry Has Become A Slave To K-POP”

A provoking voice has emerged in Japan, saying that the music industry is ‘a slave to K-POP’.

Japan’s Shueisha recently made sarcastic remarks about the K-POP Hallyu Wave through an article with the title, “Incensed by the lack of Shin Ramyun, the Japanese Music Industry has Become a Slave to K-POP”.

The article claimed that though Girls’ Generation has sold over 600,000 copies of their album that was released in June, it’s hard for groups such as TVXQ, T-ARA and KARA to bring in much profit though they’re popular. One representative stated, “We spend 50 million Yen (approximately 700 million Won) on singles and even 15 million Won (approximately 200 million Won) on small events in promotional costs.” The article criticized that the flood of Korea-related magazines being published is overheating the publishing industry.

It was also stated that it is hard to meet the needs of Korean agents. One representative revealed that he was fired because he disagreed with an agent who wielded great power working between his record company and a Korean entertainment agency. It was published that another stated, “Once, a Korean staff member became incensed because he couldn’t find any Shin Ramyun to eat while the celebrity was completing their schedule.”

[TRANS] 111014 JYJ Tops Gaon’s September Charts For Album Sales And Sells Over 350,000 Copies

JYJ showed off their immense power as they topped Gaon’s September charts for album sales.

According to Gaon Charts on the 14th, JYJ’s first Korean album ‘In Heaven’, which was released on the 28th, sold a total of 165,000 copies in September.

This is the first time that Gaon Charts has released an official sales count for JYJ. JYJ beat KARA, Super Junior and INFINITE and topped the overall charts for September.

JYJ haven’t been able to have their albums count on the Gaon Charts because their distribution company A&G Modes has not been a member company of Gaon. The final results were revealed after discussions were made with the distribution company over the sales count and how it would be posted on the charts.

Ahead of this, Gaon Charts revealed through their official homepage that, “We are currently coming to an agreement with JYJ’s distribution company A&G Modes regarding their data supply, and their album sales from September will start being reflected on the charts, as early from the 10th of this month.”

JYJ’s ‘In Heaven’ has currently sold over 350,000 copies. A representative of JYJ’s agency stated, “The album has been sold out nationwide as it sold over 165,000 copies in the first three days,” and “They’ve sold over 350,000 copies till now and we expect them to keep hitting record-breaking sales.”

News: 110429 JYJ Sues Japanese Agency Over Cancellation of Concert

WHEN you are dealing with human rights issues, they cannot be resolved quickly unless either mutual respect on both sides leads to early resolution, or a timely process is employed to resolve the issues. In the case of JYJ against the established entertainment cartel, this is going to be a long, drawn-out process. I anticipated this was going to happen so I have always cautioned that the process was just beginning. Those of us who truly love our mancubs, not their bodies only, or their music only, but love their spirits, souls, and personalities will have to hold in and continue to pray for resolution that benefits the common good. I believe that Avex has been using JYJ and other artists to solve their money issues and to fufill their corporate goals with disregard for the artist’s human rights, as has SM and all of the United Management Companies, et al.. Artists are so much more than talent and box office appeal–they are human beings with desires and hopes of their own. It can be hard to work for years toward someone else’s dream. I have lived this. IN this particular case the disregard also extends to the people in need in Japan.

Let’s keep loving and supporting not SM, not Avex, not even C-Jes–just our guys wherever they feel the most comfortable. Love you, Jaejoong, Yunho, Yoochun, Junsu, and Changmin. Momma Cha

News: 110429 JYJ sues Japanese agency over cancellation of concert JYJ has filed a lawsuit in Japan against their management company AVEX Entertainment for interfering with their attempt to hold a charity concert.

JYJ, a boyband formed by former TVXQ members Kim Jae-joong, Kim Jun-su, and Park Yoo-chun after they filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment for unjust contract, had planned a charity concert to aid earthquake-affected areas in Japan. However, the concert’s venues have canceled their contracts with JYJ after AVEX allegedly pressured them.

(From left to right) JYJ’s Kim Jun-su, Kim Jae-joong, Park Yoo-chun talk to Thai fans during their Bangkok Concert on April 3. (Yonhap News)

JYJ’s agency C-JeS Entertainment and the concert organizer ZAK Corporation have filed two provisional dispositions against AVEX with the Tokyo District Court.

AVEX released an official statement, in which they do not deny the action. “Our company holds the exclusive rights for JYJ’s activities in Japan, and we have just taken actions against the infringement rightfully and properly,” AVEX said. They also claimed that they have received blackmails and threats due to the matter.

AVEX signed a contract with three members of JYJ in early 2010 after JYJ filed the lawsuit with SM Entertainment. A few months later, AVEX announced the “suspension of activities” of three members, arguing JYJ should refrain from promoting in Japan while legal proceedings against SM Entertainment were under way in Korea.

This “suspension of activities” has kept JYJ from conducting any promotional activities in Japan. Even after the suspension, however, AVEX has continued to make profits with products such as DVDs and JYJ footage.

Due to their ongoing lawsuit with their management company, JYJ has had difficulties in their activities in Korea as well. They have released an album, held concerts globally, and acted in dramas and musicals, but have had trouble getting airtime on television entertainment shows.

Another pop group, KARA, who also had three members embroiled in a dispute with their management company DSP for nearly 3 months, recently announced they have resolved the disagreement and will continue their career with DSP.
