tvN ENEWS' 'blackbox' corner that was aired on the 20th ranked the celebrities with the top ten annual earnings this year.
The celebrity with the highest earnings was TVXQ, followed by Rain, Big Bang, Super Junior, Kim Hyun Joon, Go Hyun Jung, Girls' Generation, Lee Byung Hun, Yoo Jae Seok and Kang Ho Dong.
It was found that TVXQ earned at least 126.4 billion Won (equivalent to approximately 109 million USD) this year when their 90 billion Won earnings from Japanese album sales are taken into account.
However, this news is overshadowed by the fact that TVXQ is currently fighting a legal dispute with their agency SM Entertainment over an 'unfair contract' and have even been driven to the brink of a disbandment.
Newsway announcer/reporter Jung Soo Ryang stated, "TVXQ was able to reap such earning regardless of the fact that they are in such unfavorable conditions with the legal dispute," and "If their had been no legal dispute, they would have earned much more than this amount."
She also added, "If TVXQ, who has evolved from just a domestic star to a Hallyu star of Asia, cannot overcome these unfortunate conditions and disband, not only will this be a huge loss to our country's entertainment industry, it will also be a loss at a nationwide scale," and "I hope to see TVXQ come to a reasonable agreement with their agency and return to the stage in good spirits."
ENEWS' 'Blackbox' airs every Wednesday and brings experts of many fields to the panel to discuss controversial events of the entertainment industry.
It happened when SHINee was performing ‘Ring Ding Dong’ for 2009 KBS Gayo Festival on 30th December in YeoIlDo KBS Hall.
And performing halfway, the microphone for member TaeMin did not work all of the sudden. Even though TaeMin seems like flustered with the technical problem, the other members have quickly came in to sing for his parts and they completed the performance.
After the performance, fans said, “I was shocked because suddenly there was not voice for his part”, “Luckily TaeMin followed through well”, “I hope they pay more attention to this in the future” etc.
Meanwhile, 2PM ‘Again & Again’ won the top popularity award for 2009 KBS Gayo Festival.
With that, each of the 5 Big Bang members will have their own solo albums. For the past 2 years, we have seen members TaeYang, SeungRi and GDragon etc with their solo album release.
YG Entertainment’s head Yang HyunSeok, who had gone to Japan with Big Bang to attend the 51st Japan Record Awards on 30th December, said in an interview on 31st December, “With this award, it will help increase Big Bang’s popularity in Japan.”
“There are also many fans and music officials who are curious about Big Bang’s activities next year, for the first half of next year, Big Bang will focus on their Japanese promotions. And for domestic fans who have been waiting for Big Bang, for the first half of 2009, DaeSung and TOP will release their solo albums.”
According to Yang HyunSeok, TaeYang’s offline album will be released first next year. After which, DaeSung will release a new album. DaeSung is currently personally doing the producing to his own album. And also, after DaeSung’s album, TOP and SeungRi will reveal to fans their own songs in the form of minialbum or digital single release.
Yang HyunSeok said, “DaeSung is doing the music style that he likes, and we have given him the composers right for the music style to him. And DaeSung is doing his own album producing, Fans will be able to feel his own music style through the form of album single released in either full-length or minialbum format.”
“I hope that everyone will also look forward to TOP and SeungRi’s solo songs.”
At the KBS Song festival, the most popular song will be selected based on how much love was received by the song throughout the year. There were 7 canditates, and the competition was very tight.
On December the 30th, at 9:55 pm, at Yeouido’s KBS broadcast center, the 2009 Song Festival was hosted by Hwang Soo Joon, Kim Kyung Ran, and Han Suk Joon.
This year, seven songs were in particular loved a lot by fans. 2PM’s Again&Again, Super Junior’s Sorry Sorry, SNSD’s Gee, 2NE1’s I Don’t Care, Kara’s Mister, Davichi’s 8282, Park Ji Young’s Like Being Hit By a Bullet, were all in a tight competition for the best song of the year.
On this day, the opening performance was Lee Seungi with his song ‘Love Is’ which was performed with his active dancing and his beautiful voice.
After Lee Seungi’s performance, 4minute performed ‘Muzik’ and Hot Issue’, which was followed by Park Jin Young’s ‘No Love No More’, which were performed with powerful dancing.
*SJ didnt win, but its okay Sorry,Sorry is #1 to us ^^
Super Junior’s leader Leeteuk & Yoonah have expressed their new year greeting to ISPlus’s readers.
I still cant forget the moment we were announced to get the Golden disk daesang award yet. Having the most important award at Golden disk with “Sorry sorry” is one of the things I cant forget in year 2009. Although I and the other members had a lot of individual activities but we’re very happy that “Sorry sorry” had gained a lot of popularity. Therefore, Super Junior can get over the complex “Although being famous but dont have representative song”.
It seems that year 2010 will bring only good and happy things. Usually there arent many chance for me to wear Hanbok but today, wearing this Hanbok and greeting ISPlus’ readers, I hope everybody will have a happier year.
As the next year is the year of tiger, Super Junior who receive the strength from the tiger will work more hard. And I hope all the readers will be healthy like the tiger’s strong legs, your business and study will be bright like the eyes and may new year bring you prosperity.

So who is the lucky girl? She is actress Park Soo Jin, who plays Kim Heechul's girlfriend on the SBS weekend drama, 'I Love You Ten Million Times'. The two will be getting married despite the opposition from the family members.
Lee Chul (Kim Heechul) fell in love with Oh Nan Jung (Park Soo Jin) at first sight and kept clinging on to her, but Nan Jung's heart was already so attached to a guy named Baek Kang Ho (Jung Kyuh Woon). The playful friendship turned romantic when one night, Lee Chul impregnated Nan Jung! Tsk tsk Heechul. Always in such a hurry! Oh Nan Jung realized that Lee Chul has always been there for her, and decided to get married.
However, their marriage was not so easily approved. The mothers of both households were strongly against the marriage, but the conflicts made their love even stronger! In the end, they did end up marrying.
On December 23rd, Kim Hee Chul in a black tuxedo, and Park Soo Jin in a short mini wedding dress, got "married". The two supposedly filmed as if they were really getting married!
To celebrate the New Year's, T-ara wants to get a little traditional. What better way than to do it and promote your new song?
Since they wore Santa and snowman outfits for their Christmas version, I'm guessing they'll dress in hanbok for this one. Hanbok is the traditional Korean attire.
But it might be crazier than hanbok because their company said, "The clothes are a lot more surprising than the Christmas version. That's why we'll set up a little event for fans."
While playing a game with her celebrity look-alike friends, she lost and they made her talk about the hardest time in her life.
I was born and raised in America and when I first came to Korea, the differences were so huge I didn't even contact my old friends. I went to one of my American friend's online networking page and the friend looked so happy in their picture with their friends. I was thinking about how I was all alone and it was so hard for me to cope with that. I met some really great friends in Korea but but until then, I had no one to enjoy happiness nor sadness with except for my family.
Lee Bo Young will be the female MC alongside Kim Gura and Shin Jung Hwan, but is planning on surprising everyone by transforming into a singer for the special occasion!
With Nichkhun of 2PM, she will be singing 'Way Back Into Love' from the movie, 'Music and Lyrics'.
Lee Bo Young already proved her singing ability in the movie 'Once Upon a Time', where she transformed into a jazz singer, so this performance with Nichkhun is making everyone excited!
As for you, 2PM fans, this is for you! Nichkhun will be revealing his hidden piano playing skills!
A representative of Lee Bo Young said, "Lee Bo Young has been practicing a lot to showcase a performance that would remain in everyone's memory."
Earlier this month, BoA released the single album Mamoritai White Wishes and she produced a track titled The End. There's rumors that BoA will show off more of her producing skills on Identity. Thanks to Luna for the tip and information!

The production crew of 'Entertainment Weekly' put said apology under the title 'This is the production crew of Entertainment Weekly' in the Viewers' Thread on the show's official homepage on the evening of the 28th.
In this apology, they showed their remorse for their mistake by saying, "There was an error regarding the names of the members of the group TVXQ in the '2009 Star Survey' corner which was aired on the 26th. We will make sure an incident like this will never happen again."
In this segment of 'Entertainment Weekly' that was aired on the 26th, the production crew was under fire for putting out subtitles that read "Xiah Junsu, Choikang Changmin and Meecky Yoochun filed a lawsuit against their agency". They made the mistake of putting Choikang Changmin's name instead of YoungWoong Jaejoong when reporting this news.
After the airing of the show, many people, mostly TVXQ fans, demanded an apology from the program.
Since Big Bang’s early days, their young leader G-Dragon has been accused of plagiarism, the same thing happened when G-Dragon released his own solo album. This individualistic Leo, blood type A guy is always upright on the stage and stubbornly sings his own songs. However once he turns around to hug his beloved dog “GaHo“, he is full of child-like smiles.”

We reckon FT Island must love Singapore to bits! By Hye-mun
Perhaps it’s because we’re famous for being an island nation, just like their band name. Or maybe it’s because we’ve got passionate fans who are not afraid of showing their love for them.
But whatever the reason, K-pop band FT Island seems to love our little island deeply. Why else would they visit us three times over less than six months?
Since the last time we caught up with Jonghoon, Hongki, Jaejin, Seunghyun and Minhwan, all of them have been keeping busy, both with individual and solo activities. Three of the members have even gotten together to form a separate group and released a single!
Let’s find out what has been keeping the boys busy…
Bitten by the Acting Bug
After Minhwan’s drama in the daily drama The Road Home, Hongki has had a turn in a drama too.
While he made his acting debut as a child actor, Hongki recently wowed audiences in the drama You’re Beautiful.
He played the role of Jeremy, an overseas Korean who grew up in England and returned to his motherland to be a member of the boyband A.N.JELL.
“When I’m a singer, I feel the thrill onstage; if I’m acting, I develop feelings for the screen,” he revealed when asked about the differences between acting and singing.
So did Hongki get along as well with his co-stars as he does with his fellow members, which included actor Jang Geunseok and Hongki’s labelmate Jung Yonghwa of the band CN Blue?
“…. Hongki was a little shy at first, but everyone was surprised at how quickly we became friends. He says he’s not even worried about being misunderstood if we went on a trip together!” is co-star, actress Park Shinhye revealed about how the cast got along on a set.
For Hongki, this experience has given him the opportunity to meet new friends. “When working with FT Island, when I get really tired, I can get bad-tempered. But here, when I get tired, I get to joke around with Yonghwa and Geunseok hyung (=older brother). When I arrive at the set in the mornings, Yonghwa pounds on my car window. I’m a little reserved, but we became friends right away… When I see Geunseok, he glares first. And I talk a lot with Shinhye, I don’t have time to feel depressed,” he grins.
The other members think that Hongki has given a great performance. “When I found out that his character in the drama was a drummer, I did ask him how he would be able to handle the drums. As the date for filming got closer, [Hongki] would practice till the wee hours of the morning. It was tough, but he’s done really well,” Minhwan says.
While Hongki has been busy filming his drama, FT Island members Jaejin, Jonghono and Minhwan have formed the unit group FT Triple. “The idea for the group came when we were preparing for our concert in Japan, and we thought about doing the same in Korea. When the opportunity came along, we decided to just go for it,” Minhwan said.
In the team, Jaejin takes lead vocals, with Jonghoon as the second vocalist and keyboards, and Minhwan continuing on the drums. The trio made their debut on the repackaged release of FT Island’s latest release Double Date, which had two discs – One Date, and Two Date.
Two Date contained three tracks by FT Triple, including the title track “Love Letter”.
“The song is a letter you wish you could write to an ex-girlfriend because you worry about her, asking questions like ‘Are you eating well though I’m not around?’ and ‘Are you doing well without me?’. But you can’t actually ask her about it, because you’ve already broken up,” Jaejin explains.
It was a big change for bassist Jaejin, who took Hongki’s place as lead singer in FT Triple. “My image as a bassist for FT Islad, and main vocalist for FT Triple are very different. You could say that it’s a little empty with only three of us onstage, but I think that’s okay – thanks to good camera angles. But the most amazing thing is that now, yous ee my face for more than half of a three-minute song – it’s quite amazing.” Jaejin laughs.
While Jaejin has been busy with preparing for their concerts and with activities for FT Triple, he’s also had to mug for his college entrance exams, which were held on 12 Nov 2009.
When asked how he found the papers, he felt that his Mathematics paper was the toughest, but feels that he will do better than expected.
“Funnily enough, I completed my paper really quickly. When I looked at the other students after I finished the paper, they were all scribbling furiously!” he laughed.
While most students look forward to the end of exams so they can relax, Jaejin lamented that he was too busy with preparing for the group’s upcoming concert tour. There is one thing that he’s looking forward to – finding a girlfriend in university! “I want to be part of a CC – a campus couple!” he declared.
While FT Island has kicked off their concert tour in Korea, they are also gearing up for activities all over Asia.
Their first overseas stop in 2010 will be in Singapore for a fansigning and meeting session.
FT Island Autograph Session
Date: 29 Jan 2010
Venue: IMM Garden Plaza
FT Island Fanmeeting and Handshake Session
Date: 30 Jan 2010
Venue: Dragonfly @ St. James Powerstation
This will be followed by the Thailand leg of their “Men’s Stories” concert tour in Thailand (6 Feb 2010) and their first showcase in Taiwan (27 Feb 2010)

We Fully Deserve the Daesang
Leeteuk: In the past, after sitting for my exams, I would call the hotline to check my results, the voice prompt would say “Your current preliminary qualification status…” Listening to this made me feel I was already a university student. “Your current ranking is the #237…”, the first day it was #237, the second day, when I called again, it became #200. In my heart I was thinking, this is quite good, (my ranking) is always rising.
Eunhyuk: Previously, when I was taking part in the auditions, among the staff, one noona told me that I had a chance this time, and added in that if I did a good job, I could immediately sign a contract. Although I wasn’t selected, at that point in time, I felt as if I had already become a star.
Leeteuk: The deepest feelings that I had recently was during the award ceremony not too long ago… Coming from our mouths this might seem a little proud, but we are the fully deserving triple award kings.
Eunhyuk: Heheh, we received 3 awards, the biggest record in history.
Leeteuk: The Bonsang, the popularity award, and the biggest one… The Daesang… Ahahahahahaha.
Eunhyuk: We are the best.
Leeteuk: Really, we just cried. For Eunhyuk, even after he left the awards ceremony, he was still crying.
Eunhyuk: I’ve grow so old, and I’ve never cried like this before. I cried for an entire hour, without being able to stop. I got tired of crying, and wanted to stop and take a rest, but when I saw the words “Daesang” written on the trophy, my tears couldn’t stop falling again.
Leeteuk: That is because when you were in school, you have never received such a big prize.
Eunhyuk: Yeah, true… I’ve never received it before… Anyway, thank you.
Eunhyuk: Everyone, do you know, Leeteuk is the king of typos.
Leeteuk: Yeah, that’s right, it’s my nickname.
Eunhyuk: Be it writing or reading, all along, he doesn’t look through things thoroughly. When looking at news, he looks at it roughly, and after reading it, when you ask him about the content, he would say he’s not sure.
Leeteuk: Recently, on my CY, I wanted to write “365days passed very quickly” but in the end, I wrote it as “356 days…”. And there is one of my classic experiences, when I was in China, and I left a message for the Korean fans, I wanted to write “from”. I was impatient, and the internet connection wasn’t that good, so I wrote it as “form”.
Eunhyuk: Form Leeteuk
Leeteuk: Yeah, I have too many classic typos.
Shindong when eating
Eunhyuk: Leeteuk, you eat your rice very quickly right?
Leeteuk: Yeah, about the same as Shindong.
Eunhyuk: His speed is really too fast.
Leeteuk: He doesn’t eat his rice, he drinks his rice.
Eunhyuk: Sometimes, when everyone is eating, and he is the only one not eating, I would ask him why he is not eating, and he would say he’s already finished eating, and is resting.
Leeteuk: I looked at his rice bowl and dug out two spoonfuls, and asked him if he had no appetite. He said this was already his second bowl.
Junsu had his money taken away
Eunhyuk: When I was in middle school, there was once our S.R.D* members arranged to go to the amusement park and have fun. Who knew, that morning, my stomach hurt like mad, and I gave them a call saying I couldn’t go. After that, I kept lying on the bed. Later at night, they called to say, at the amusement park entrance, they met a group of hyungs who were snatching money, and all their money got taken away. In the end, they could only stand at the main gate and take a look, before coming back.
Leeteuk: Yeah, I have an impression, I took their money and had fun.
Eunhyuk: Oh, so it was you… Anyway, thinking about it now, at that time, my stomach hurt at the right time.
*S.R.D is a group that was formed by Eunhyuk, Xiah Junsu and 2 other friends wile they were in school. S.R.D stands for Sing, Rap & Dance.

Super Junior’s Chinese member, Hangeng’s request of the termination of his contract has caused an uproar. There have been rumors that SM entertainment is using Hangeng to cause a publicity stunt for the Beijing concert and also that Hangeng may not be attending the concert. Due to these rumors, Net Ease Music Channel on the 29th has had an exclusive interview with the representative for the Beijing concert. The representative claims that everything has been going as planned and has not received any news about Hangeng not attending the concert.
Earlier, Korean group Super Junior-M (known as SJ-M)’s leader Hangeng sued SM Entertainment, to terminate his contract because of the unfair terms. Therefore it has been concluded that Hangeng will not be participating in any SJ-M’s schedule this year. According to Korean news site, Newsen, 57% of the fans who voted, support Hangeng leaving and becoming a solo, while 24% wishes he would not leave SJ. The soon to begin Beijing concert is in a nerve wrecking situation as it is in the preparing stage. The representative has reported: “Everything is fine, the hotel, airplane tickets, the concert tools are all being prepared on schedule.” When asked about the tickets for the concert, the representative also responded with a smile of confidence and that everything is fine.
About the rumor SM entertainment is using Hangeng for the Beijing concert next year, the representative responded saying “This is not true, the tickets are already sold out, so there would be no need to do such thing. Even so, there is no need to pull such a low publicity stunt, if Hangeng quits SJ, in the future, if he continues being an idol, this will affect his image.”
When the reporter asked the representative, “If Hangeng was to be absent for the concert would a lawsuit be filed against him?” The representative said, “We did not think about this because everything has been going on as planned.” The concert will be presented on time for the fans.

Sohu Korean news: Last week, after the news about Hangeng wanting to terminate his contract with his company, the fact that whether SJ-M will continue their activities in China had became the media’s main focus. Before that, a news published that “Henry felt unfair for Hangeng” and “Henry going solo”. About this, SM company called Sohu Korean entertainment to release a statement that they did not go through any interview. The following is the full statement from SM :
One: About the news that Henry felt unfair for Hangeng, our company would like to clarify that when we reached the place to perform, we did not receive any sort of interviews. The organizers, Guangdong Weishi and Dongguan TV station did not give us any arrangement for any interviews so therefore, this news is not true.
Two: About the news dated 23rd December 2009 by Guangzhou’s Xinkuaibao (Henry going solo and was paid 50k to perform) and 24th December 2009 by Yangcheng Wanbao, the truth is: Super Junior-M’s Korean members are slated to perform at a countdown concert in Korea and it was confirmed months ago. Thus, the organizers on our side has always stated: “Super Junior-M will not attend the activity as a group but instead, the only artistes that are attending are Zhang Liyin and Henry.” And Henry is attending this activity to sing “love me” with Zhang Liyin as a performing guest.
Three: Our company, S.M.Entertainment’s official statement: The previous articles, together with articles that states that “it(the news) has created a bad impact between S.M company’s artistes and has caused misunderstandings between the artistes” or any reports that are fake has violated the “Internet announcement requirement”(?) and the “Internet information service idea”(?) laws. If the media releases any news that has not been confirmed in the future, S.M would not hesitate to take legal measures to the related parties that wrote the news.

In the aftermath of Hankyung filing a lawsuit against SM Entertainment, there were reports afterwards that 5 other Super Junior members, Leeteuk, Yesung, Kangin, Eunhyuk and Donghae had done likewise. It also stated that because of Hankyung's nationality, his case was made public first before the others.
But SM Entertainment has issued a strong rebuttal stating that the news report claiming that 5 Super Junior members had filed lawsuits against them for unfair contracts were fabricated and untrue. And if such fabricated reports are published again in future, SM Entertainment will seek legal action against the publisher and the reporter.
The statement was signed off by SM Entertainment's CEO Kim Young Min and the affected Super Junior members.
Korea’s popular group Tohoshinki, who is attending Kouhaku Uta Gassen for the second consecutive time in two years, also attended the rehearsals held on the 29th. In the midst of disbanding rumours, their rehearsal was not revealed to the press. The 5 members were unable to respond to interviews, and the mood was one of high alert.
On the Internet, fans have been expressing their worries – “This might be the last Kouhaku Uta Gassen where you can see all 5 of them together.” In the midst of that, the 5 members of Tohoshinki participated in the rehearsal held at NHK Hall, at 7pm, which was after the “interview period”.
Press coverage at the venue ended at 6pm. During the rehearsal, at the time when the press was shut out of the venue, an official from AVEX warded the queries of the media and only explained that “it was due to their schedules”. In the end, their stage was not revealed, the members could not meet the press, and there was a tense mood all around.
Tohoshinki will be attending the TBS 「Japan Record Awards」 on the 30th and TBS 「Countdown TV」 on the 31st. There has been no announcement for any schedule that will take place from 1 January onwards. The members arrived in Japan a few days ago, but AVEX declined to disclose whether they came together, as well as other similar queries.
Rumours of disbanding emerged in July when the 3 members, Jejung, Junsu and Yuchun, came into conflict with their management company over their exclusive contracts. They attracted a lot of overseas attention when the 5 of them did not perform together in Korea even once, after the outbreak of the conflict, but continued to appear on Japanese television. However, in the middle of this month, an event that was planned to be held in Japan in January (10 performaces) was suddenly cancelled, and the fan’s worries about their disbandment grew even more.
It has not been decided yet, as to whether or not they will be having promotions for the remaining contract they still have with 「Oronamin C Drink」, their new single 「BREAK OUT!」 which will be released on 27 January, and their ‘Best Album’ which will be released on 17 February.
The fans’ wish for the New Year is “peaceful settlement”. They’ll be keeping a close watch on whether or not the year-end performances will be their last.
T/N: The report may be true, but please keep in mind that this news source has a tendency to be rather sensationalistic.

She modeled for jacket photos of a compilation album called Groovy Honey House Vol. 1, which showed a different side of her. This is a debut album for a new label called Groovy Honey, which launched on the 10th of December. Their style of music is house, electronic, round, and jazz.
The album consists of several American artists, and is not Korean in anyway, except for Victoria's face on the album cover.
Maybe they thought the face of a girl group member would raise the sales of the album. I'm not sure about that, but it certainly gained some attention.
