Rough Idol Managers!!!

So me and DJ Young have been talking about this all week~
the group CNBlue has been in hot water over some plagiarism disputes. However, their manager isn't exactly helping things with him rough handling a young fan girl! It was pretty brutal actually. It's not a light rough push or an accidental swinging of the arm. It looks pretty deliberate and hard...

This brought to light an older incident where another idol group, SHINee, had their manager shoving a poor fan girl as well! Poor SHINee's manager though. He could've gotten away with it, but because of CNBlue's manager's actions, his actions were re-scrutinized!

What is up with these violent managers?! Do they not know it's the FANS that are putting bread on their tables? What a way to bite the hand that feeds you!

Check the clips out and let me know what you think~

Not really Kpop but still worth sharing...

So this isn't really KPOP related...
and I haven't really been keeping up with American Idol after Kelly Clarkson~ haha that was like season 1!!
I have such a short attention span~
I really wanted to say kudos to John Park for making it into the top 24 on American Idol. That's HUUUGEEE!!!!

I remember many seasons back there were two finalists from Hawaii: Jasmine Trias and Camile Velasco.
Hawaii people were so proud and the support was just unbelievable.
Well, it's tough to make it into the top 24 of American Idol to begin with... but it's just that much more special to be a Korean male at that^^

Congrats to him and check him out!
I thought it was cute how Shania Twain was being kind of...flirty/naughty with him haha

All About DJ Young!!!

So this post is dedicated to DJ YOUNG!!!!
First off, coming from someone that's trying to transition into a new show (KPop Connection), let me just say that he not only makes it easy for me... but fun^^
Many of you may already know, but just in case you don't, DJ Young definitely knows his KPop... some of that perhaps being that he has experience in the kpop music scene himself!
Guess which one is DJ Young! haha

Well, if you haven't guessed already...
DJ Young used to be part of a group called S#arp (Sharp)~

He's still into music of course, but we can't leave out the fact that he's a very talented radio DJ as well! You can hear him on a number of English shows here in Korea~ Most notably, shows in KPop^^

Believe it or not, he can go from that tough rapper image...

to quite the warm, kind, and generous person as well~

I hope that this kind of gives you a better glimpse of the man behind the voice that you all listen to~~

What a hottie!

So I promise I'll do a better update soon, but just wanted to take the time to first off, THANK all the GREAT KBS World listeners who have been SO welcoming~

I'll be honest....
Being that Sarah was such an amazing host, I thought it would take awhile for the listeners to get used to a new voice~ And of course everyone DOES indeed miss Sarah, but many have been very warm and nice! So THANKS for that^^
Our producer was telling us Sarah had sent an email from Vietnam saying that she's doing well~ So I'm sure that's good news for all her fans out there!

SECOND, please, please, PLEASE keep all your emails, requests, messages coming in~ Me and DJ Young LOVE getting them and reading them! Also, for Korean Pop Interactive (it airs on Sundays) listeners, please email your requests and entries for CD Drawings to OR you can post them up on the message board saying it's for KPI~ For KPOP Connection song requests, you can leave them up on the message board at OR email them to!

For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about when I say "CD Drawing", we pick FOUR entries at the end of each month where we send the winners a FREE CD...OF THEIR CHOICE!!! How great is that?! So just email me your name, address, and which CD (artist and title of CD) that you want~ And the best of luck to you! However, if you don't win one month, enter again the next month because it's TOTALLY possible you'll win then~

THIRD, so the latest KPOP news has it that Amerie (that super hot half Korean singer in America) is planning on featuring a couple KPOP groups on her album~ 4 Minute and BEAST!

To my knowledge, they'll be featured on a song that was actually already released: "Heard 'Em All"
You can check out the music video:

What a hottie!!!

It's OFFICIAL: my blog is now up and running!

Hey guys~
I can't believe I was even successful in setting this up up to this point. I'm not exactly computer illiterate but definitely not one of those gifted people that can maintain an interesting blog!

First off, I want to welcome you to my brand spanking new blog! I assume most of my visitors are listeners of KBS World... this is where I host a few shows: KPop Connection, KPop Interactive, and Seoul Calling.

I'm going to try to be good about this, but bear with me because I'm still a newbie blogger~ ㅠㅠ
I will try to update with pics from Kpop star interviews and any relevant news.

I definitely, DEFINITELY encourage you all to comment as much as possible~ Tell me about YOURSELVES! The great thing about the internet is that we can keep in touch EASILY regardless of where we all may be!

Okay, with that all said...
newbie blogger, signing out! ^^
