[KPOP] Jae Beom: Hot Issue

I am confused. Very very confused. Thanks to JYP's ingenious machinations and a 'scandal' that got blown waay out of proportion. Whatever JYP is, dancing gorilla, genius talent-scout or producer, you can add to his long list of talents: one hell of a media manipulator.

Aww, I didn't mean it...

The controversy caused 2PM's popularity to skyrocket within a few months, their song 'Again and Again' shot up the charts (with renewed vigour) as countries were conducting flash mobs to reinstate Jae Beom back in 2PM. No such thing as bad publicity.

Another wave of popularity ensues caused by one of their songs, 'You Might Come Back', which had fans pining for his return. Then 2PM unearthed their new album with a depressing and artistic look ala The Joker/Italian mafia/mime, performing their dramatic song 'Heartbeat'. Yes, their hearts pump for Jae Bum. Gothic make-up complete with epileptic death sequences, the whole she-bang.

Listen to my heart beat...

Next, we have them performing their next single of their album, 'Tired of Waiting'. Are they moving on (as suggested by the title?)? A question that manages to conveniently appear in our minds. I'm feeling so manipulated now (I like 2PM a LOT but...). Then Allkpop posted an article today which managed to miraculously disappear, about Jae Beom announcing his permanent departure from the group. Maybe the information was iffy. Adds more to my confusion.@_@

Does he have 'No Love, No More' for Jae Beom?

What is our grand finale? Does the possible next single, 'I (Was) Crazy For You', carry any foreshadowing of bad news? Only JYP knows for sure. In the meantime, I still have Woo Young, Taec Yeon and Chan Sung to drool over as well as the boys of 2AM! ^^
*end of rant*

I should totally focus on the more important things in life. HAHA. *continues watching her costume dramas*

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
