Editors Note on OPINION

Editor’s Note on Opinion

This is the reality of stardom. Sad to say, even though there are varying degrees of obsession–there will always be personages within the fanbase who do not understand boundaries. Every person deserves life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness–those are guaranteed constitutional rights–at least in America. I cannot speak for another country. It appears to me that if there are individuals who violate these norms of societal living, even within a fanbase, there should be repercussions.

How can you expect a star to entertain you over time with lack of peace, sleep and rest? If you truly love them then you will also want the best for them–and I consider sleep and R&R at the top of the best chart.  

The article below speaks for itself. It addresses one of the issues of being forever in the public eye. I’m sure that our imaginations could not stretch far enough to envision every problem that crops up. There is a price to be paid for being a public servant. The price is lack of freedom and privacy.

 A question was posed about why these persons are not arrested, detained, etc.? We all know why Yunho decided to forgive and let the person who attacked him go. Yunho is compassionate, as I’m sure many of them are. Is it aiding and abetting to allow them to walk away, or to allow saesang’s to stalk unimpeded?

 In my own opinion, it is not helping those intrusive individuals to become responsible, caring people by allowing them asylum because potential for great harm is present in their actions. Why are they tolerated? Despite their behavior the industry tolerates them because a large percentage of these individuals or groups will buy goods or attend concerts, even if to cause mischief. It boils down to money received over a guaranteed future existence for the artist. Shame on the industry for placing their entertainers potential for revenue making above their personal need for safety.

BTW, Kyuhyun, I salute you for thinking quickly upon your feet and running instead of confronting. It probably saved your life. 

Let’s Keep Praying and Fighting!!!

[OPINION] 111105 Anti Fans And Their Power In The Music Industry

[OPINION] 111105 Anti Fans And Their Power In The Music Industry

I remember that one of the things that caught my curiosity while falling into the arms of K-Pop was the idols and their anti-fans. I started reading story after story and when I read about DBSK‘s Yunho and the incident of the juice with glue in it, I asked myself, “Why do these people have so much power over the artists they hate?” It is something that up to this day I don’t understand clearly.

First, these people waste time hating K-Pop groups without even having a reasonable argument for that. Secondly, they elaborate plans, websites, manipulate pictures and even gather in groups secretly, to attack the person they hate when their anger towards said artist grows even more. I have seen plenty of websites and even groups on Facebook or Twitter, recalling “Anti SNSD”, “Anti 2NE1″, “Anti Kim Hyun Joong” and even “Anti DBSK”.

Why does this happen? Why so much anger towards a group or person? Just because a group does really well in the industry, it doesn’t mean that you have to hate it and become part of some sort of evil sect to attempt or to even destroy it. Sometimes, fans themselves create these evil monsters. I have read comments in which people get actually sick of X or Y artist just because of their fandom.

These little antis, can be divided in three categories. The first category is the “regular anti.” These anti-fans just comment or say they don’t like certain groups and that’s all. Their intention is to actually hurt the group’s fandom and not to hurt the artist itself. The second category is the “stalker or sasaeng anti-fan.” Here, some fans of a group are actually sasaengs without even hating the group, but why are they considered antis? Because they stalk their artist and cross the limits of a person’s privacy.

There have been cases in which stalkers follow an artist every single day. They spend too much time following them around, getting information of their schedule, and also there have been cases in which they trespass illegally into their dorms, as it happened to JYJ, or writing on their dorm’s walls such it happened on BEAST‘s dorm and Yoseob himself had to clean up the walls, or the case of Super Junior‘s Yesung who caught a fan writing on their dorm’s wall and had to tell her to stop

[Yoseob cleaning BEAST’s dorm wall]

Also, this category of stalkers, tend to check out their idol’s garbage. Some of them are so extreme that they get their idol’s phone number and call them several times at day. This last case happened to DBSK‘s Yunho and it was so stressful that he had to change his number. When he did, the same fan who was calling him non-stop obtained his new number in just five minutes and argued: “Why did you change your number?, that’s not good for you” and hung up.

Some of them, post very disgusting pictures declaring their obsessive love towards their idol without even realizing that it actually is a very sick kind of way to declare their love. One of these crazy girls actually wrote a love letter with the blood from her menstruation, and to prove that it was real, she even sent her panties. This happened to 2PM‘s Taecyeon. Other idols who have received bloody letters are, MBLAQ‘s Lee Joon, FT Island‘s Lee Hongki, Big Bang‘s Taeyang and G-Dragon.

Love letter to Lee Joon: ” Lee Chang sun (Lee Joon’s real name) don’t forget about me. You are everything to me. I love you. Remember that. Soojin”]

[3rd victim of the bloody letters: Lee Hongki. “Lee Hongki, do you know that I love you right?”]

[Letter addressed to Taeyang, scary uh?]

[The last victim of the letters, G-Dragon]

Some others stalkers follow the idol 24/7 and even videotape them. Honestly, the following video made me feel uncomfortable even to watch, in the case of SHINee‘s Jonghyun. He was feeling really awkward, surrounded and being videotaped when he clearly asked them to give him some space. 

When these kind of fans break the boundaries imposed by the group’s manager, it gets until the point in which the manager has to react violently. This last happened when CN BLUE‘s manager got into a controversy for being accused of violence against a fan. A similar thing also happened to SHINee’s manager as he was recorded hitting the back of a fan’s head. Some of the group members looked surprised by the violent gesture.

The third category is the dangerous one. These people are so full of nonsensical anger and hate that they actually attempt against the life of the idol they want to destroy. There have been really serious issues of attempting and almost killing an idol. I’m pretty sure that all Cassiopeias remember when Yunho got poisoned with a juice spiked with adhesive glue. After he drank it, he started vomiting blood and had a stomach washout done immediately. After the incident, he dropped all the charges against the person who caused that. Even Kim Heechul, who was really angry about the incident, got threats from Yunho’s antis so he had to stop tweeting about the issue.

This makes me wonder, why are they so afraid of these people? Why are they so afraid of filing charges against their attackers? Shouldn’t they be punished? These anti-fans have gained such a power in the music industry that they can decide or control a person’s destiny. Remember the issue of Jay Park who decided to leave 2PM due to his accusations of being anti-Korean despite the fact that he apologized for it and went back to Seattle? Or the case of Tablo and his Stanford issue in which people were demanding the truth from him? Isn’t that too much?

They have acquired so much power and control over the artists they hate, that it is almost normal for the idols to have antis. They don’t even date and if they do, they date secretly in order to stay safe and away from stalkers and antis. When is this going to stop? Aren’t agencies supposed to do something against these people? To suffer harm from an anti-fan is not nice and we surely don’t want to see our beloved idols being hurt and suffering as it happened to Yoon Eun Hye when she got shot in her eyes by an anti-fan who was holding a water gun full of soy sauce and vinegar

The latest case was of Super Junior‘s Kyuhyun who was threatened while being on vacation in Spain by, what SM Entertainment said, “strange guy” who had a knife in his hands. Kyuhyun reacted quickly and was able to run.

I honestly think that this anti-fan thing should stop. There’s no reason to harm another person or to make them impossible to lead a normal life. They already have too many things and schedules to deal with so I think there’s no need of another living terror called “antis.”

INFO-ADMIN POST 110727 Heavy Rain and Flooding Brings Korea To a Standstill

[INFO-ADMIN POST] 110727 Heavy Rain And Flooding Brings Korea To A Standstill

On July 27th, Korea experienced an extreme downpour in the central district that that has not only brought the country to a standstill, but its entertainment industry as well.
It was recently reported that Loen Entertainment’s former building in Bangbae-dong, Seoul was demolished by a landslide caused by the heavy rain and subsequent flooding. Fortunately, Loen moved offices to Samsung-dong, Seoul about a month earlier.
Sunny Hill’s dorm, however, is located right next to the building, and the landslide happened while they were asleep. A representative revealed, “There are three floors to their dorm, and water flooded up to the second floor. The members were all very shocked over the ordeal and have canceled their rehearsals.”
Some celebrities have opted to subways instead of their cars in order to get to their schedules on time. Yoon Do Hyun was inevitably 10 minutes late for his live recording on MBC’s ‘2PM Date‘ and also had to deal with his rehearsal room being flooded.
Several fan accounts of seeing stars like Rainbow’s Jaekyung and Super Junior’s Kyuhyun on subways are also being relayed online.

Some events have been canceled for good, such as the opening of Baek Ji Young’s dog-friendly cafe. With sets being flooded, dramas like “Warrior Baek Dong Soo”, “Gyebaek”, “Heartstrings”, etc have also been making last-minute changes to their schedules in order to coordinate everything accordingly.
Although stars are trying to keep up with their schedules as much as possible, obstacles with communications are making it harder than ever. One representative revealed, “Everyone is checking whether their office, recording room, and dorms were flooded. We have to focus on the artists’ schedules but communication is an issue so we’re all very frustrated.”

[Trans] 110314 ‘Musical Idols’ High Tick…

[Trans] 110314 ‘Musical Idols’ High Ticket Power, “Not Bad” Acting Skills
(top to bottom: Acting, Singing, Marketability, Growth Potential–Junsu is placed 1st for whole categories)

Idol craze has grown stronger in musical industry. These idols usually have strong ticket power as shown by Kim Junsu who sold out all tickets of his musical starring ‘Tears of Heaven’. There are more than 20 names of idols that have ventured into musical industry.

However, as they’ve been under gazes of many musical critics, most performances of these idol turn musical actors were not highly praised. There’s been debate of the fact that despite the unproven acting skill, these idols still get many notable roles. Therefore since the 28th last month to March 13th, Kukinews held a survey to 11 musical critics and producers to assess the skills of ‘musical idol’. The positions will be decided through 4 categories: acting, singing, marketability, and growth potential where for each category there will be 2 chosen names, at which the first rank will be graded with 3 points and the second rank gets 2 points.

Idols who are chosen in skill category are Kim Junsu, ONew, Kyuhyun, Taeyeon, and J (sorted based on ranks). Yet some respondents said, “None of them has the skill that can be evaluated,” and returning a blank paper.

Kim Junsu who swapped 1st in all areas, received particularly good marks on marketability and singing ability. ChungKang Culture Industry University Professor Jin Jeong-hoon said, “Kim Junsu has proved himself as a musical star through his role in ‘Mozart!’ and ‘Tears of Heaven’” However, “His vocal range is limited so traditional classic works will be difficult for him.” The professor further pointed out, “His vocalization is also peculiar and he lacks in ability to communicate the lyrics.”

Regarding Kim Junsu’s acting skill, Dankook University Professor Yunho-jin commented, “While there are still few lacking in some parts, but his ability to instinctively grasp the stage is remarkable,”

Kim Junsu got the vote of 6 people as an idol who shows potential to become next musical idol star. Seoul College of Arts Professor Wangyongbeom said, “He seems to have potential to be loved by public in the future as shown by the sold out performances of ‘Mozart!’ and ‘Tears of Heaven’. But he has assignment now to choose another good musical work hereafter.”

A musical producer who asked to remain anonymous, “The growth of potential depends on practice. Eventhough he/she is an idol singing star, but if he/she’s failed to practice in musical basis, it would be the beginning of a cloudy performances of him/her. But the main problem of these idols are, they have their main work to focus on as well (that cause the lack of musical-base practice),”

‘Musical idol’ is undoubtedly contributing positively to the popularity of musical. This fact shown on the increase of foreign tourists from Japan, China, and more to attend musical performances.

Fans of these idols are claimed to be the source of this musical idol’s ‘ticket power’. Kim Junsu, for instance, sold out the whole of his 17 performances (26,000 seats), while ‘Legally Blonde’ starring SNSD Jessica and ‘Song of The Sun’ starring fellow member Taeyeon all at least become a break even. Therefore although their title is still a ‘rookie’, these musical idols receive at least 1.5 times higher fee than those musical veterans.

ChungKang Culture Industry University Professor Yuri said, “Sometimes musical performance appointed idols to star on their works merely to grab more and more audiences without any consideration to create a high level and good taste performances, this could dropped the quality of musical in the long term that leads to the loss of audiences at the end.”

I really can’t believe that these crtics are evaluating the K-Pop music stars by opera standards. The genre is light opera that will attract the “common people” and allow them to grasp a taste of musical drama. As a vocalist I find it rather refreshing, and Junsu gets my first vote, then, Onew and Kyuhyun.
