[TRANS] Lee Min-Woo Talks About TVXQ In An Interview

21 08 2009

Lee Min-Woo said, “(TVXQ) are excellent juniors that I recognise. A few months ago, they even had a chat with me about problems in life… I could tell that the members have very deep feelings for the group. At the back stage, they would hold each others’ hands and pray, say good luck; the way they cheer each other on is very similar to us. (T/N: He meant Shinhwa) Because they are a group which has very good team spirit, I believe in TVXQ.”

“My dear younger brothers, TVXQ does not just belong to TVXQ. Don’t think too much and over-complicate things, just keep thinking about your fans who have spent precious times with you and who have always protected you.

I hope that all of you can steadfastly protect the proud name of TVXQ. You definitely can’t disband, Hyung (T/N: Older brother) is counting on you.
After the current issue is resolved, the 11 of us should go out and have fun.”

[NEWS] Idols on the Big Screen

27 02 2009


After news of Big Bang’s Seungri being casted in the upcoming movie ‘71′ was released, public interest on the subject of idol group members taking on the big screen has once again been piqued. The first case of idol involvement in a movie was in 1998, when 6-member group Sechskies appeared in the movie ‘Seventeen’.

That was followed by ‘Emergency Measures No.19′, produced by gagman Seo Sewon. The movie became a hot topic of discussion as it featured many top idol acts of that time, including Shinhwa, Fin.K.L and NRG among others.

In the summer of 2006, it was DBSK’s turn to step into the limelight when they filmed ‘Vacation’, a story based on the adventures of the 5 members while on vacation.

The whole group of Super Junior also took part in the movie ‘Attack On The Pin-up Boys’ in 2007, which attracted more than 100,000 people to the cinemas. Super Junior member also featured in the 2008 movie ‘Romantic Comic’.

‘Meanwhile, So-hee of the Wonder Girls shared screen time with actresses Lee Mi Sook and Kim Min Hee in the 2008 movie ‘I Like It Hot’, and received some positive reviews for her performance.

In addition, Shinhwa members have also had starring roles in movies too – Lee Minwoo in ‘Wontak’s Angel’, Kim Dongwan in ‘Spin Kick’ and Eric in ‘Diary of June’. Former G.O.D member Yoon Kye Sang featured in the movies ‘Flying Boys’, ‘Six Years In Love’ and ‘Beastie Boys’, and former S.E.S member Eugene has also starred in ‘Unstoppable Marriage’, ‘That Man’s Book Page 198′ and ‘Romantic Island’.
