Lee Seung Gi, JYJ…Whose Fans Are The Strongest? Fierce Competition For The Popularity Award In The “MBC Drama Awards”



Beginning with the “KBS Entertainment Awards” on 22 Dec, the anticipation towards the year-end award ceremonies of the 3 broadcasting agencies in Korea is high. As with any awards ceremony, much attention is on who will walk away with the award. Although it is also an honour to receive the big awards from the broadcasting agencies, who take into consideration your contributions and popularity, the best way to affirm your popularity with the viewers is through the popularity award.

Among those, the popularity award of the drama awards is one that actors and actresses take pride in, and that fans participate enthusiastically in. In particular, as there are many male actors with deep-rooted popularity involved in the MBC Drama Awards this year, it has attracted an exceptional number of female viewers to vote. It seems that the competition is even stiffer than for the Daesang.

During an interview with OSEN, MBC representatives explained, “The number of nominees for the popularity award is usually set at 10. However, as the performance of the male actors in MBC drams this year has been outstanding, the number of nominees has been increased.” With the number of nominees increased to 15, it seems difficult to predict who will win.

Voting began on 21 Dec via the MBC official website. The 15 nominees for the popularity award are: Kim Soo Hyun with “The Moon That Embraces The Sun”, Kim Jae Won with “May Queen”, JYJ’s Jaejoong with “Dr. Jin”, JYJ’s Yoochun with “I Miss You”, Song Seung Hun with “Dr. Jin”, Ahn Jae Wook with “Light And Shadow”, Yeo Jin Goo with “The Moon That Embraces The Sun”, Yoo Seung Ho with “I Miss You”, Lee Seon Gyun with “Golden Time”, Lee Seung Gi with “King 2 Hearts”, Lee Jang Woo with “I do, I do”, Lee Jun Gi with “Arang And The Magistrate”, ZE:A’s Siwan with “The Moon That Embraces The Sun”, Jung Il Woo with “The Moon That Embraces The Sun” and Jo Seung Woo with “The King’s Doctor”.
All the nominees are very popular actors. From Lee Seung Gi who has a wide fanbase that spans across age groups, to Kim Soo Hyun who has had a great year, to idol group JYJ’s members Jaejoong and Yoochun, all these actors are strong contenders for the popularity award.

MBC limits the number of votes to one vote per ID, and a maximum of 3 votes per IP address per day. Hence the fans, who love their idols, make use of the IDs of their family members as well. MBC will announce the results of the voting during the live broadcast of the awards ceremony, which will be held on 30 Dec.

He was also standing in the middle and attracting much attention as a main dancer, viewers couldn't take their eyes off him. He kept calm and dancing till the end of the performance, which showed his professional side.

Netizens reacted, "SHINee's live stage was perfect and I didn't even noctice that", "It must be so shameful", "Thank God for his dark-colored underwear", "It's because his pants were too tight or his dance was so strong"etc.

Jaejoong Earns Rock Props with Upcoming Album


C-Jes Entertainment stoked the excitement of JYJ fans yesterday with a teaser for Jaejoong‘s upcoming solo album. And the fans aren’t the only ones impressed. Band frontman Kim Bada, one of the album’s producers, went from not even knowing who Jaejoong was to praising the idol’s rock potential.

The video, titled #KOR.STU-2012-1226 . DSLR MOV and styled like top-secret leaked footage, previews this new ‘rocker Jaejoong’ we were told about at the album’s announcement not too long ago. Now two songs are teased, showcasing some serious belting on Jaejoong’s part. Not bad, not bad.

Kim Bada, former vocalist of metal band Sinawe and currently Art of Party‘s main vocalist, was a little skeptical when Jaejoong first asked him to produce a song for him, but was understandably won over after attending the first recording. Though he’s never given anyone a song of his before this, he actually ended up producing two tracks for Jaejoong, the second one more hard rock than the first.

“He was exceptional… He has the ability to be a rocker. After recording of first song, I gave him a hard-rock song that was a little bit stronger, but he didn’t reject it. He came through with the compositional intention.” (NEWis via Naver)

Jaejoong’s first solo album will drop on January 17,  with a special concert to follow on January 26 and 27th.

What do you think of this new style for Jaejoong? Does it suit his voice well?

Infinite’s Sunggyu “wishing to buy a house for his parents more than getting a girlfriend”



Sunggyu, the leader of ‘Trend-dols’ Infinite starts his intensive work at dawn. Even on the day of the interview, he had to change is schedule several times. In the end, the interview was set at 3PM and could start only after sundown. Sunggyu looked obviously exhausted but he kept on saying “I’m ok” while smiling. He joked saying that when they first debuted “It was our wish to be tired because we have a lot of schedules” remembering for a moment about Infinite’s old image.

This year, Sunggyu had great results personally. He got to debut not as Infinite’s leader but as a solo singer. Through the title track ‘60 Seconds’ with modern rock beats, he could show his rocker spirit as much as he wanted. Sunggyu said “It feels like I’m showing myself only now”. Aside from ‘60 Seconds’ in this album, there are a lot of various songs. Including ‘41 Days’, the song he personally wrote, there’s the acoustic version of ‘Only Tears’ that garnered interest during Infinite’s concert, ‘Shine’ that is a gift from Nell’s Kim Jongwan, etc, by showing music with various colors, he tried to transform. As if he was leaving on a trip to find his other self, the name of the album is also ‘Another Me’.

When asked about the solo singer’s title song, Sunggyu commented “It was a work where I could enjoy my freedom”. “I felt more freedom than when I’m working as Infinite. When I was promoting in Infinite, I also tried to show a new image but this challenge was different than before. Should I say it was freedom through rock? It was a refreshing challenge.”

As soon as we asked him to choose the best song of this album, he chose ‘41 Days’.Sunggyu said “It’s the song where I tried writing lyrics for the first time and the melody matches me well. It’s the best song to me”.

Sunggyu is the first Infinite member to go solo. When we asked him which member was the most envious, he chose his roommate, Woohyun. “I think that Woohyun who’s in chage of the vocals in the team is envious. Since he’s my roommate we talk often but I’m coming home late because of the solo activities these days, so I think it’s even more like that” and after saying that while laughing, he counted on his fingers “Since he’s my roommate since before we debuted, he’s also a friend-like dongsaeng (T/N: Friend as in friend with the same age). He’s a roommate worth 100 points who supports me no matter what I do”.

These days, collaborations are the trend in the K-Pop industry. We also asked to Sunggyu if there was a singer he wanted to sing with. “I always wanted to sing with Nell seniors but since they gave me a song as a gift I was really happy. Next time, if I get the opportunity, I want to collaborate with the band Pia.”

Infinite has the nickname of ‘Trend-dols’. But it’s not a group that got popular as soon as they debuted. In 2010, they released their debut album ‘First Invasion’ but they didn’t get significant results. They released another single but the reactions weren’t really good. When promoting for their second mini-album ‘Evolution’ with the title song ‘BTD’, they set their color as ‘Choreography-dols’, their single ‘Nothing’s Over’ exploded and they quickly rose as Idols we have to focus on. With the song ‘Be Mine’ they settled as top idols, and Infinite were very active. Their song ‘The Chaser’ even got 1st place in this year’s K-Pop chart selected by the American Billboard. As the leader who must’ve been more frustrated than anyone else, it can only be a result to be proud of for Sunggyu.

“When we first debuted I was very frustrated. Then we had the song ‘BTD’ and I thought ‘That’s it’. I thought it would do really well. But it didn’t get as known as I thought it would. The greed slowly disappeared and we released the single ‘Nothing’s Over’ without any expectations and it did well so I got hope. Truthfully, a group like Infinite sings a lot of songs that are melody centered so it could look old. Luckily, there were a lot of good songs this year, the concert, the dance, the styling, etc everything matched us well.”

They got popular but the rumors also grew. “Infinite lost their original goal” “After getting popular they have no manners” a lot of rumors like these spread around them. “It’s true that we got busier than when we debuted. The feeling we had before, thinking ‘We have to work hard’, didn’t disappear but after getting popular, there were a few rumors saying so. The 7 of us lived together for 3 years and we still talk to each other a lot. We do our best to be polite toward juniors, seniors, everyone. But when I hear that we lost our original goal, it makes me very upset. There’s no way I can explain it to each one of them, right? I’m actually the type to be very shy so when I wait by myself in the waiting room with many groups, I get shy and I can’t greet them well. But I think that people could misunderstand it as me being arrogant. I have to do my best to change more actively, of course (laughs).”

While we were at it, we asked. Does the leader of an idol group have a girlfried? “I’m an adult as well, I want to have a girlfriend (laughs). But rather than that, I want to give a house to my parents living in Jeonju. I said I was going to sing, I didn’t go to the university at 20 and went to Seoul thoughtlessly, so it made them very upset. My wish is to buy a house where my parents can live comfortably.”

Sunggyu said 2012 was an unforgettable year. He said it was because he released a solo album and held Infinite solo concerts in Korea and Japan. He said while smiling that he was happy he could improve as Infinite’s leader and as the solo singer Kim Sunggyu. From now on, which singer will he want to develop?

“‘As a singer, what do I have to become?’ ‘Where do I have to get 1st place?’ I don’t have special nor definite goals like these. I just want to become a singer who will be active steadily and for a long time. I want to let a lot of people listen to my voice through songs.”
