[NEWS] K-Pop Concerts Beckon Fans



After Stevie Wonder wowed fans with his popular tunes, powerful vocals and unforgettable stage presence, local K-pop groups are following suit with a festival to keep the musical wave high and flowing.

SM Entertainment, one of the main agencies here, responsible for some of the most popular stars including BoA and Girls’ Generation, is holding SM TOWN LIVE ’10 World Tour in Seoul beginning on Aug. 21.

Staged at the main stadium of Sport Complex, Seoul the six-hour event boasts a lineup of the cream of the crop.

BoA, who has recently returned to the local K-pop scene with her new number “Hurricane Venus,’’ will aim to dazzle fans with her talented vocals and dance moves. The 23-year-old singer has proven her star power in Korea and Japan. Despite not doing as well as she had hoped in the United States in 2009, she is still a fan favorite thanks to her charisma and considerable experience as a top singer despite her young age. Fellow singer Kang Ta, and also an older performer in the SM stable, will join BoA to impress fans with his balladic tunes. The 30-year-old has been busy performing in Japan and China and he is returning home to greet local fans.

SM Entertainment was one of the first to produce large groups, starting with the now disbanded band H.O.T, and mega groups such as the nine-member Girls’ Generation and 13–member Super Junior. They will be on hand to join their seniors on stage.

SHINee and f(x), relatively younger artists, are also expected to blow the crowd away with their funky tunes and enviable dance routines.

Other special highlights include a pairing of U-Know and Maxx from TVXQ, while BoA will perform a duet with SHINee’s Key. Super Junior’s Kyu-heon and Seo-hyun from Girls’ Generation will get together for a special sequence, while sisters Jessica from Girls’ Generation and Krystal from f(x) will also collaborate and show off some sisterly love and talent.

With more than 80 songs on the program for the concert, fans will also get to watch actors under the SM label relax and show their playful sides at the event. Actors Kim Min-jong, Ara and Lee Yeon-hee will appear on stage alongside the singers, promising a day of sound, excitement and entertainment.

The concert will continue to Los Angeles, Tokyo and Shanghai throughout the year.

The SM TOWN LOVE ’10 World Tour in Seoul will be held on Aug. 21 at the main stadium, Sports Complex, Seoul. All tickets cost 88,000 won. For more information, visit www.gmarket.com.

For fans looking for a more interactive performance, attend the Brand New Concert featuring top pop groups on Aug. 20.
Without the loyal, cheering fans in the audience, there would be no purpose for a big performance, and this concert has been arranged as a two-way concert for both the audience and performers.

Spectators will not only get to watch their favorites stars including 2AM, B2ST, Brown Eyed Girls and KARA but they will also be given the chance to show their appreciation and devotion to the singers at the event. Instead of the usual concert format where the singers perform and the fans cheer them on, concert organizers have explained that it will be a more interactive show where everyone gets to participate.

While the singers will sing their recent hits, they will also get together and arrange joint performances. While Jo Kwon from 2AM and Ga-in from the Brown Eyed Girls announced that they were working on a new song for the event, all artists will be on stage together to sing the song “A Goose’s Dream.’’

As a meaningful goal for the event, organizers also announced that the proceeds will be donated to patients suffering from cancer.

[TRANS] 100212 To Shim Changmin, By Shim Changmin (Letter From Changmin to Himself )


T/N: NeverEnd is Changmin’s fanclub.

NeverEnd: This was revealed on 7 February during Changmin’s birthday party; a letter written by Changmin to himself. Many thanks to Sarah who wrote it down to share with us and showed us Changmin’s gradual growth. Below is the complete letter.

To Shim Changmin:

You always wish to have a modest appearance. Although it can be said to be a postive aspect of you, but on the other hand, there are times when you show a complete opposite side, so there are often times when you worry about yourself… but recently, I’ve started to have the mindset of appreciating myself and to be proud of myself, so it can be considered a really lucky thing.

Although in the past, it was exactly as what everyone said: I used to live while looking inward and constantly stressing out, making it harder for myself… but in future, I want to have more faith in myself and live my life like that… Didn’t I have the misguided thinking that I was born without a choice on who my parents would be? So, work harder!

Even though I said before: The old me faced many different choices, but the present and future me, will still have many choices that I have to face. In future, no matter what I encounter, no matter who I have to stand before, I want to do the right thing and make the correct choice like I have done so far. Also, as long as I can become a person who stands firm with the right choices I make, that would be good. Of course, I might feel tired because of these choices and I might encounter many difficult things… but if that is the price I have to pay in making the right choice, even if I have to accept punishment, I will break through all these difficulties and ultimately receive wisdom and knowledge.

I think this attitude I have towards life is something I learned from my parents. Although I still have to learn to face up to reality, but no matter how difficult it is, if I cannot make a right choice then I’ll have to shake off those options decisively, and from that, become a wiser, more knowledgeable and confident me. In future, won’t there be choices that will make me become like that? Haven’t I become an artist now? To be an artist as an occupation… Although I’ve been an artist for a few years, even though there are still many things that I don’t fully understand, but I still show my candid side when I appear in front of everyone. There’s also a side of me that even I don’t know about; aren’t there times where I also have to show a side of myself that is not me?

To be honest, this is not something that I dreamed about when I was a child… Who I am now… I often have this thought… “If I’m not doing what I’m doing now, what else can I do? Would I have become a son that constantly causes his parents to worry?” The things that I am doing now may not make people feel exceptionally proud or seem fulfilling. However, don’t I still pass each day happily, looking forward to a better tomorrow?

It allowed me to see a beautiful world that I didn’t know about and awakened the person that I am now… Teacher Lee Soo Man… SM Family still holds the same gratitude in our hearts, so never change^^ If you are still the person that you are now, the heartfelt gratitude we have towards you will never change…

Now I’m also in my twenties… Compared to others who are of the same age, I had to start working a little earlier and I didn’t get to experience the things that they went through… But isn’t there a saying, “you gain something when you lose something”, this phrase is not said without reason. I always do my utmost best to fulfil my responsibilities to try and carve an even better future for myself. I want to expand further, so let me continue to better myself.

When I think of that I will do everything passionately… even though there are many people in the world who look at me enviously… Instead of always trying to hide from these prying eyes, I think I should do things that are honest to what I really feel and to have a youth which is filled with passionate love when I date someone! Even though it’s not an easy task and there might be failures… but I can experience the feelings and passion that belong to my age… I don’t want to miss a thing. I think this is a way to make me work harder to become even more passionate… Even if I fail, I still think this way… Career and love… Like what I said before, I don’t want to miss out on anything anymore… But, if I make a mistake when it comes to relationships, it will become even more dangerous…

In order to have better judgement, I will make decisive choices with a judgement that is as sharp as a blade. I will become a youth that is even more passionate and hardworking than others… I’ll work hard to be even more passionate and rational…

Let’s always work hard…
