The London Olympics Torch Relay

You’ve probably all heard by now that MC, singer, actor and all round cutie Lee Seung Gi will be running a leg of the Olympic torch relay on behalf of Samsung, who are a partner for the London 2012 Olympic Games. Although not appearing on the official London Olympics website under people that will be Torch Bearers, Samsung have released information that Lee Seung Gi will be running in Manchester on the 23rd June. If you happen to be in Manchester on that date, Lee Seung Gi is sure to appreciate support along his run! However, Lee Seung Gi isn’t the only notable Korean doing a leg of the torch relay.

Choo Kyu Ho, the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea in London, will be taking part in the Olympic Torch Relay on the 25th July, running through the London Borough of Brent. Although you may think diplomats spend all day in the office, surprisingly the Ambassador is a very active man! He used to be a football and tennis player in the Diplomatic service, and still loves to run. Don’t underestimate the Ambassador as it sounds like he can give you a run for your money in terms of sporting prowess! The Ambassador “appreciates the combination of physical and mental strength of the British people and hopes the British Olympic team do very well like the Korean Olympic athletes”. We look forward to his part in the relay and hope Londoners will turn up and support him on the day too.

Chun Su Jin is another Torch Bearer to look out for. Chun Su Jin is the only Korean reporter to be a Torch Bearer in recent Olympic history, so this is sure to be a big day for her. This will likely be an extra special moment for her as as well as she’s been reporting for the Olympic Movement and the IOC, and now it’s her turn to take part in the Games and not be a spectator or reporter. She will be running in Hastings on the 17th July, so if you’re in the area, be sure to cheer her when she goes past!

There are also some Torch Bearers for whom being able to run in this relay will be an especially joyous day. Kang Ji Won is a woman who’s experienced many hardships. Having fought cancer, she is now taking part in the Torch relay. Hopefully this will be a special moment for her and will show other people with cancer that there’s always hope. Kang Ji Won is “a living testament to hope and dreams of running to share her experiences”. Kang Ji Won will be running through Burnley on the 23rd June, so please make her part of the Torch Relay one to remember.

Jeong Jong Hyuk, who is running on the 23rd of June in Preston, is obviously a kind man who tries to help others to improve their own lives for a brighter future. With a long history working with Samsung, he spends his free time trying to help young people who might be going down the wrong track to work on changing their attitudes and actions. This guy definitely sounds like a deserving Torch Bearer!

If you get a chance to, show your support for these runners, and in fact anyone who’s running as a Torch Bearer. I’m sure anyone who’s running in the relay will be pleased to know they have people watching and cheering them on. We can’t wait to have Lee Seung Gi in our country, and will be showing our support for him, other Koreans who are Torch Bearers, and everyone else taking part! Have fun to everyone carrying The Flame!

4Minute Jiyoon will show her skill in English and Composing

Recently, Jeon Jiyoon has been carrying an English textbook in her bag to study English. Due to 4minute‘s frequent overseas promotions, the members have realized the necessity of studying languages.

Although the other members are studying Chinese and Japanese, Jiyoon chooses to study English instead. “I want to be able to converse freely in English,” Jiyoon said with a smile.

The other members flattering Jiyoon with encouraging words: “Jiyoon is diligently studying English studies as if it were a second nature. She’ll be able to show off the fruits of her studies soon.”

Jeon Jiyoon revealed, “In South America, making an OK sign is considered rude and in Japan, holding up 4 fingers is taboo. However, I didn’t know these traditions and have made these mistakes before. Since we actively perform overseas, I realized that we should not only learn other languages, but also undoubtedly learn their cultures as well.”

Jiyoon is also in the process of composing songs. When asked when her compositions will be heard, she answered, “Wait for me. I hope that my songs will be revealed in the future. Rather than making sloppy compositions, I want to create something that is enjoyable. I hope that you will patiently anticipate my songs.”

Recently, 4minute is preparing for overseas activities after concluding promotions for their latest mini album, Volume Up.

The Wanted’s Jay McGuiness is 2NE1′s fan?

Since the spread of Hallyu wave, k-pop idols have rapidly gained millions of international fans and more and more Western stars have spoken about K-pop music and K-pop idols. The most recent victim of Hallyu fever is none other than Jay McGuiness from an Irish boy band, “The Wanted.”

The prove is in a recent video released by The Wanted official youtube channel today. Around 2:50 mintues into the video,there is a scene of Jay singing the catchy chorus of 2NE1‘s song, “I am the Best.” He asked his fans “what’s this song called/from?” and told them to tweet him the answer!

Instead of pronouncing “Naega jeil Jallaga,” which means “I am the best” in Korean, Jay sang “mega…”  Judging by his enthusiasm and bopping during the singing, Jay is definitely addicted to that song. No surprise there! Despite his cute mis-pronouciation, he has no doubt gained additional fans by 2NE1‘s  lovers. Their official youtube channel has been filled with comments by Blackjacks and there are a lot of comments like “My love for Jay has INCREASED.. if that’s even possible!!! ” and “They are 2NE1′s fans, The Wanted are officially awesome!”

Check out the video below to judge for yourself if Jay is a 2NE1‘s fan or not.

Here’s the official 2NE1′s MV “I am the Best.”

Unlike the teaser picture, GD has seen to gone blonde in the teaser video. He looks somewhat like a cyborg in blonde mushroom-shaped hair and seems like he has lost his way and trying to find an exit from the entrapped place.

Maknae, Seungri, seem to have similar hairstyle and outfit in the video as in the teaser picture. The only differences are his side-shaved hair has been spiked into a funky mohawk and his jacket in the video seem to fit more handsomely around him! Like TOP, Seungri seems to be wearing circle lens too. Similar to G.D, Seungri appears to be trapped in a building in the video.
