Super Junior "Miina" Album Sales Break Past the 100,000 Mark


Super Junior seems to still be the best at selling albums. Just eight days after the release of their fourth album "Miina", they've already sold over 100,000 albums!

As of May 20th at 11:30 AM, 95,359 copies of "Miina-Version A" were sold. This in addition to the 13,047 copies of "Miina-Version B" brings the tally up to 108,406 copies. The only difference between the two versions is the CD jacket covers; the songs are the same.

This feat isn't exactly a surprise though as SM Entertainment had announced earlier this month that 64,800 copies of "Miina" were already pre-sold online along with 133,685 copies reserved before the album release date at stores to boast a total of 198,485 pre-sold copies.

After the mid 2000's, album sales have been struggling and it's been difficult for artists to sell many copies. In fact, Super Junior is only the second artist/group to have sold over 100,000 copies. The first group to do so was Girls Generation.

A related source said that they expect sales to even break past the 300,000 mark. Super Junior is considered the best at selling albums after their third album "Sorry, Sorry" sold over 250,000 copies.

Obstetrics and Gynecology Doctors


Ini adalah salah satu drama seri Korea yang bagus..kalo remaja mo nonton sih mungkin gak laku ya..tapi kalo dari segi cerita bagus banget.Ringan dan gak berbelit-belit.
Drama seri dengan latar belakang dunia kedokteran terutama di bidang kebidanan dan kandungan dibumbui dengan permasalahan diantara tokoh-tokoh pemerannya.
salah satu yang membuat aku tertarik pada drama ini adalah pengambilan gambar yang terjadi diruang operasi . dengan menonton film ini aku jadi tahu proses operasi Caesar.
Satu hal lagi kita bisa banyak belajar dari masalah - masalah yang timbul dari cerita ini dan jadi tahu istilah-istilah kedokteran serta konflik yang harus dihadapi oleh seorang dokter atas keputusan-keputusan yang diambilnya.
Menurut saya...Nonton deh...

Lee Joon-ki's military photo revealed on Cyworld


A recent photo of Lee Joon-ki taken at his current military training camp is spreading fast on the Internet since first being posted on Korea's popular social networking site Cyworld.

In the picture, taken by a training assistant at Nonsan military camp and later put up on his mini-hompy, the military uniform-clad Lee is seen smiling while making a salute with his hands.

The actor looks to be in more cheerful spirits than he was last Monday, when he held back tears and saluted hundreds of his fans goodbye before heading off to serve the country's two-year mandatory military service.

One fan remarked in the comments section below the photo, "I am relieved to see him more upbeat".

Lee, best known for his role in the 2005 pic "The King and the Clown", had been shooting the film "Grand Prix" and set to appear in blockbuster TV series "Faith" when he was notified by the government to report to the military.

He initially tried to defer his entrance date in order to finish up the shootings, but pulled out from both projects when he was unable to do so.

After receiving five weeks of basic training at Nonsan, Lee will be assigned to a different base where he will carry out twenty months of military duties.

Lee Min Ho in Personal preference

Jang Dong-gun couple return from honeymoon

actors Jang Dong-gun and Ko So-young return from their honeymoon to Bali, arriving at Incheon International Airport in South Korea on May 8, 2010.


CHUNO/SLAVE HUNTER


Diambil dari kisah para budak di Korea pada jaman Raja Jeosun sekitar tahun 1600 an. Menceritakan tentang seorang anak muda bangsawan bernama Lee Dae Gil yang keluarganya hancur karena rumahnya dibakar oleh budaknya yang bernama Ki Yoon Won dan melarikan diri bersama adik perempuannya yang bernama Eun Nyeun, yang jatuh cinta dengan Dae Gil.
Lee Dae Gil selamat dan menjalani tahun-tahun penuh kekerasan sehingga mendorong keinginannya untuk membalas dendam, dan membuat namanya terkenal sebagai pemburu budak, berdedikasi dalam mengejar untuk menemukan Un Nyun, cinta pertama dan satu-satunya.Lalu ada Song Tae Ha seorang Jendral Angkatan Darat yang menjadi budak setelah difitnah atas kejahatan yang tidak ia lakukan, ia kemudian dikejar-kejar oleh Lee Dae Gil sebagai pemburu budak. Keduanya terjebak dalam cinta segitiga dengan Un Nyun, yang tidak lagi menjadi budak yang melarikan diri.

Drama ini dari segi cerita bagus banget. Lee Dae Gil yang diperankan oleh Jang Hyuk sangat bagus membawakan perannya.
Kekurangannya pada Lee Da Hae yang berperan sebagai Eun Yun kurang maksimal dalam perannya terkesan datar saja ekspressinya.
Dan segi pengambilan gambar yang berjalan sangat panjang sehingga membuat penonton bosan menunggu scene / adegan berikutnya.

Wish Upon A Star/ Pick TheStar


Seminggu lalu aku baru selesai nonton ni film , bagus juga..makanya kalo cinta itu bilang aja jangan dipendam-pendam.
Ceritanya sih klasik tapi gaya cerita drama korea itu selalu dimodifikasi dan kreatif jadi gak bosan dan gak terjebak ama cerita-cerita yang sama .

Kisahnya begini . singkat aja ya,ada seorang gadis bernama Jin Pal Kang yang bekerja sebagai agen Asuransi yang sudah 5 tahun jatuh cinta sama pengacara perusahaan tempat ia bekerja yang bernama Shin Jo hwang. Suatu hari Jin pal kang kehilangan orang tuanya dalam suatu kecelakaan yang menyebabkan seluruh hidupnya berubah karena ia mau tak mau harus menghidupi 5 orang adik angkatnya sementara selama ini keluarga mereka berasal dari keluarga tak mampu.
Untuk menghidupi adik-adiknya ini Jin Pal Kang lalu bekerja sebagai pembantu rumah tangga di rumah sang pengacara yang dicintainya itu..dari sinilah drama cinta segitiga( apa segi empat ya?) mengalir antara Jin pal Kang, sang Pengacara,adik sang pengacara,keponakan sang pengacara, dancewek yang ngejar-ngejar sang pengacara.
Jin Pal Kang tak tahu bahwa ia adalah cucu dari direktur pemilik tempat perusahaan yang ia tempati bekerja.
so selamat menikmati.......

Expressing love on Parents' Day

May 8 is Parents’ Day in Korea. First held in 1973, this is the day when children express gratitude to their mother and fathers through gifts and other tokens of love. The usual symbol of honor given to elders on this day is a red carnation. Although the basic idea of designating a special day for parents was inspired from overseas, filial piety has long been an inseparable part of traditional Korean society.
To love and obey your parents was stressed repeatedly from one dynasty to the other from the Silla Kingdom’s (57 B.C. – A.D. 935) “Five Secular Injunctions” (Sesokogye) all the way down to the Joseon Dynasty’s (A.D. 1392-1910) “Three Bonds and Five Relations” (Samgang Oryun), roughly equivalent to the Bible’s Ten Commandments.

Korean children grow up listening to traditional fairy tales in which a good majority of them are about filial piety. The story of Shim Cheong, who sacrificed her life to cure her blind father or a tiger who, tricked by a woodcutter, served his “human” mother till her dying day reveals the lofty ideal Koreans held regarding filial piety. Even nowadays unconscious gestures of careful respect towards their elders can still be detected among average Koreans – such as daily bowing and greeting -- some of them in Korean TV productions in which many living abroad notice the “too frequent” appearance of parents and the overly strong influence they wield on their children.

Just like the celebration of Children’s Day, many museums and parks are open for free. Mainly led by the Ministry for Health, Welfare and Family Affairs, many local governments hold annual Parents’ Day ceremonies to award filial sons and daughters of the year in towns and villages. Seoul City, for example, will award a total of 40 citizens this year including Lee Hyo-yong, 65. She continues to live in the 120-year old, run-down house taking care of her mother, who still awaits her husband who went missing during the Korean War (1950-53).



Also this particular year, the Motgol Market in the city of Suwon in Gyeonggi-do (Gyeonggi Province) will re-enact the parade of Joseon Dynasty King Jeongjo (1752-1800), who was well known for his dedication to his parents. The parade will begin with the handing out of 200 peach blossoms to young children, the same flower that the king presented to his widowed mother. The parade will also feature palace food and music and the profits from the festival will go to elderly citizens living alone in the region.


Best gifts for parents

Now for the tricky part: What to get for your parents? Gone are the days when parents were happy with a pair of warm long underwear to keep them warm in winter. In Korea in the 21st century marketing is just as hot at this time as it is at other annual occasions.


For those over 60, the Korea Health Supplement Association (KHSA) recommends vitamins to relieve joint pain (glucosamine) and chronic ailments (omega-3 fatty acids); to improve the immune system (red ginseng, aloe gel), blood circulation (gamma linolenic acid) and skin complexion (chloerella, spirulina); and to boost the body’s nutrients (multi-vitamin).

Sports products like walking sneakers and wind jackets are another recommendation for those with parents who wish to remain fit. For everyday health appliances there are air purifiers, massage machines or even portable blood glucose monitors in case of high blood pressure.


Who doesn’t want to look pretty? For fashion-conscious old folks you might consider plastic surgery that could involve Botox or other medications to do away with wrinkles and age spots. A shampoo that prevents hair loss, partial wigs or undergarments that help keep the body looking good are also on the market.


Last month, Korea’s biggest supermarket chain E-mart ran a two-day survey (Apr. 10-11) on Parents’ Day gifts among 900 shoppers over the age of 50. All the items mentioned above were expressed in the survey. However, the number one gift, despite all the creative ideas out there, turned out to be cash - as always.

Jang Dong-gun, Ko So-young wed on May 2

Actors Jang Dong-gun and Ko So-young at their wedding ceremony held at Seoul's Shilla Hotel on May 2, 2010




Top Korean actors Jang Dong-gun and Ko So-young got married in a star-studded wedding ceremony held at Seoul's Shilla Hotel on May 2, ending months of media frenzy over their 18-year friendship and romance.

The star couple, dubbed Korea's equivalent of Brangelina, held a photo and Q&A session several hours prior to the ceremony, answering questions by reporters about the wedding and their baby -- Ko is four months pregnant.

"Thank you so much for coming", Jang started off by saying. "We are very grateful and glad for the attention you have shown us, but it was also overwhelming. But today, I feel grateful for everything".

After Ko mentioned that "the baby is doing fine", Jang explained that they went to the doctor a few days ago where they were told "the baby is healthy" and added his hopes that "it's a girl who looks like Ko So-young".

The couple, who went public with their romantic involvement last November, shared details of their long friendship that first began on the set of 1999 film "Love Wind, Love Song" where the two are said to have become very close very quickly.

About the dating rumors that have been around ever since, Ko said, "I think we both had feelings for each other but we were young back then. And I think we cared about each other so much that we didn't want to risk our friendship by going out and end up losing a friend if we break up later, so I think we just remained good friends".

The two reportedly started dating two years ago with Jang popping the question sometime around last fall. Ko said, "[Jang] had mentioned marriage several times but he first proposed last summer, or sometime between summer and fall".


Jang had explained at his fan meeting in March that he started considering marriage while on shoot for the film "The Warrior's Way", where he started "looking back upon [his] life and thinking about [his] life as a man, beyond the actor Jang Dong-gun".

It was then where he "began to develop different emotions toward an old friend" and naturally started feeling that [he] wanted to spend of the rest of [his] life with her".

The marriage of the country's two top stars brought out scores of top Korean celebrities to The Shilla hotel who posed for hundreds of fans and cameras nearby.

Guests included actors Park Joong-hoon who hosted the ceremony, Lee Byeong-Heon, Jung Woo-sung, So Ji-sub, Song Seung-heon, Lee Jeong-jae, Hyeon Bin, Rain and Sin Min-ah and celebrity couples Son Ji-chang and Oh Yeon-soo, kwon Sang-woo and Son Tae-yeong, and Kim Seung-woo and Kim Nam-joo.

Korean singer Shin Seung-hun sang "One Fine Day" for the newlyweds while Lee Eo-ryung, famed literature critic and father of "The Warrior's Way" director Lee Sng-moo, officiated the ceremony.

Actress Lee Hye-young received the bouquet from Ko while actor Jeong Woo-seong was handed the flowers worn by the groom.

Jang and Ko will leave for Bali for their honeymoon and settle in their new home in Seoul's Heukseuk-dong area.

It was only last week that the actor found out he had no choice but to report to duty by May 3, and decided to pull out from both projects.

However, the actor, although "very disappointed", maintained a sense of humor about one thing. "I am going to eat everything I want when I go to the military. I was on a diet even until yesterday but now I can eat everything from Chinese noodles, Kimchi stew to hamburgers".

The actor will receive basic training at Nonsan camp for five weeks and later be assigned to a military base.

Lee, 28, debuted in 2001 as a model for fashion brand "SO BASIC" alongside actors Kang Dong-won and Kim Hee-seon.
