Second Concert Date Added For SMTown Live In Paris

10 May

The announcement of the June 10 SMTown Paris concert generated enormous excitement, with tickets selling out within 15 minutes. The cost of the cheapest seats were 56 Euros (~88,000 won) and VIP seats at 111 Euros (~175,000 won), but there were VIP tickets being scalped for 399 Euros (~620,000 won) online on the first day that tickets were being sold.

The high difficulty of purchasing seats for the single concert date caused many European fans to urge SM Entertainment to put on an additional performance. The request by fans for a second concert date culminated in a flash-mob outside the Louvre Museum in Paris attended by over 300 people. As a result of the huge demand, SM Entertainment confirmed a second performance date for June 11. SM Entertainment expects the total two-day attendance number to reach 13,000 fans.

According to KoME France, an official partner of SMTown Live in Paris organiser Korean Connection, the tickets for the second showing will go onsale at 10AM, May 11th. Ticket prices will remain unchanged and will be sold at the same websites which previously offered the tickets for the first showing, such as Live Nation.

Choikang Changmin Says “I think It’ll be Hard for A Woman Over the Age of 30 to Have A Baby”

16 Apr

TVXQ’s Choikang Changmin has stated that, “I don’t want my wife to be over the age of 30 when I marry her.

tvN’s ‘On Location Talk Show: Taxi’ will be airing the first episode of ‘NEW Taxi’ with TVXQ as their guest stars. The episode is set to show TVXQ’s Myeongdong outing that paralyzed the streets with fans, as well as the members’ open-minded feelings about dating and marriage, amongst other things.

U-Know Yunho drew the attention of many when he said, “If I were to start dating, I want it to be behind closed doors,” and “I want to get married by the time I’m 32.” Choikang Changmin, on the other hand, stated, “I don’t want my wife to be over the age of 30 when I marry her.” When asked why by MC Lee Young Ja, Choikang Changmin had everyone cracking up in laughter as he replied, “Because it’ll be hard for her to have a baby at that age.

They are planning to openly talk about the difficulties they faced during their 2 year and 3 month absence from Kpop. TVXQ even visited MyeongDong and Eewa Women’s college and spent time with their fans there. There was even a fun challenge where U-Know Yunho and Choikang Changmin had to buy a present with just 10,000 KRW that would surprise and touch the hearts of their girlfriends.

CreBeau Cosmetics to Take Serious Legal Action Against Rumor-Spreaders

2 Apr

Long-standing Malicious False Rumor Spreaders Will Be Taken Care Of Through Legal Means

CreBeau Cosmetics, which has been misperceived by a portion of fans on the matter of the lawsuit between the popular idol group TVXQ, has stood up to take strong legal measures against malicious fans.

CreBeau Corporation has had charged a portion of these fans – who spread rumors on not only internet blogs but various forms of internet communities false rumors that the company was a ponzi-scheme, that it manipulated stock prices in the tunes of millions of KRW, and that it used unverifiable and harmful substances as the cosmetics base – last year to the judicial authorities. Among them, for those who deleted on their own the false rumors, the company withdrew from pursuing the charges. For the other (charged fans), they have received judgments to pay fines of over 2,000,000 KRW (approximately 2,000 USD) and are facing a civil lawsuit.

Furthermore, last year as well, the public prosecutor has concluded also that the Cosmetics company is unrelated to the lawsuit between the group TVXQ (in its former form) and the agency, and that it was innocent and not guilty of all charges and arguments that SM made.

Despite this, however, some malicious fans are even now writing false rumors on internet portals and communities and spreading them. Furthermore, they have translated them into English, Japanese, Chinese and other languages and are spreading malicious blogs. Furthermore, they compulsively write malicious replies. Therefore, they are inflicting serious damages to this company not just in Korea but also in the markets abroad. The company therefore has come to take this measure, and it seems that a significant portion of them will become involved in this legal action.

An affiliate of the company said: “Until now we have obtained sufficient evidence and the number of people (against whom we will take legal action) is significant, and so we have finished the legal review along with retaining an attorney. We cannot let alone such acts and people as– acts of writing/posting false rumors and make them be carried and spread around and not deleting them voluntarily; those people who posted false rumors drafted by others; acts of not deleting their own writings even though they have been spread by others; and acts of compulsively writing malicious replie; and others. On this legal action, we will have these people bear all responsibilities available under civil and criminal law.
