[KPOP] 2AM for Pepsi Cola!

No matter what, both Coke and Pepsi will sell. ^^

The brother groups of JYP Entertainment, 2PM and 2AM, have become the blue chip of the advertisement world. Advertisements for cola have been known to pick only the hottest stars for their models.

On the 8th, an associate stated that 2AM has recently signed on to a contract with Pepsi Cola. There have also been rumors that since Coca Cola, a rival company, held 2PM as their model, they, too, have decided to use their brother group 2AM for their own. This associate stated, “They will be going into recording within this week. We’ll be able to see their advertisements around mid March.”

2PM has already finished their recording at the end of January with a one year contract. 2PM’s advertisements will go on air towards the mid, or end of this month. The two brother groups have been attracting attention as to who will receive the most love.

Pepsi and Coca Cola also had a rivalry last year, using the popular stars of ‘Boys Over Flowers,’ Lee Minho and Kim Hyunjoong.

[KPOP] Netizens Acuse CN Blue of More Plagiarism

OMG seriously? Netizens went way too far with this one (like many other times). ‘Y, Why…’ came out on their second Japanese mini album on November 25th, 2009. Like they were really planning on copying YNot all the way back then. >.< I feel sorry for them. T_T

Only hours have past since the album-title controversy has surfaced over the web, and it doesn’t look like it’s getting any better. Well this time, it’s a song title.

After discovering the shocking similarities between the two titles between Bluetory and Blue Bird by CNBLUE and Ynot, various netizens have brought up another accusation against FNC Music, CNBLUE’s agency. The third song of CNBLUe’s Bluetory album is entitled Y, Why…. Coincidentally or not, ‘Ynot’ and ‘Y, Why…’ not only both include the letter Y in the title, but they are used identically to define the word ‘Why’. Neither side of the conflict has yet to bring up any statements toward this accusation.

In my opinion, the number of plagiarism accusations that have been made regarding these two fellow indie bands is becoming ridiculous. Although it’s pretty common for artists to condense a word into a single letter (for example, U Got It Bad by Usher) to bring out the crafty effect in their titles, after being pointed out for numerous other “coincidences” CNBLUE had in relations to Ynot, no excuses seem like they will get FNC Music out of trouble now.

It’s disappointing to see such a talented band getting swamped by issues with their company that have nothing to do with the members’ talents. Do you think this accusation was taking it a step too far or are the netizens on to something this time?

I’m glad she’s better now! Expecially since they are going to start promoting a new song soon. T-ARA Hwaiting!

T-ara’s Soyeon has officially recovered from the H1N1 virus.

I will make up for my absence by preparing and working hard for our next repackaged album, ‘Breaking Heart.’” As reported earlier, Wheesung will be part of this album as the songwriter of title track, ‘I go crazy because of you ‘ (너 때문에 미쳐).

[KPOP] CN Blue’s Bluetory Means Blue Bird?

Wow, coincidence much? Oh well, that “plagiarized” song is topping the charts anyway. I hope it’ll continue like that and not hurt the boys in the future.

The new group CN Blue is swept in the tides again with the fact that they have also copied the album title from Ynot after the song as well. Currently, CN Blue is in fight against the copyright issues with the song ‘Blue bird’ from the group Ynot. The rhythm pattern and the melody of the chorus matching in the two songs was the cause of it.
According to Ynot, they stated that FNC Music, the management company for CN Blue, asked the composers Kim DoHoon and Lee SangHo to apologize about the matter, but it the issue seemed to be calming down solely because there hasn’t been any more actions from CN Blue.

However, the netizens are raising the matter once again by claiming that CN Blue’s album title ‘Bluetory’ actually means ‘Blue bird’. According to these netizens, ‘Bluetory’ is a mix up with the word “blue” and “tory” which means “bird” in Japanese.

CN Blue’s management, FNC Music replied that the album title ‘Bluetory’ was purely made up by the president of the company and that it represents CN Blue with the “blue” and the pure Korean word “tory.” They also added that “tory” stands for the “music specialty that each area has” and ‘Bluetory’ in general means that “CN Blue will be showing their own color in the music industry.”

[KPOP] BEG GaIn’s confession

Aw~ ^.^ I really hope they date in real life (*coughifthey’renotalreadycough*)! BEG seems to get away with a lot of things without the fans causing an uproar. 😀

Gain of the Brown Eyed Girls has confessed that her “heart flutters” when she sees her virtual husband 2AM Jo Kwon.

The two people are currently appearing as a virtual couple in MBC’s “We Got Married Season 2″ and were named the “Adam Couple” by viewers due to their short heights.

2AM’S Seulong participated in a recording of “Sebawki” on the afternoon of the 4th at Gyungkido Ilsan MBC Dream Center and called Gain during the “DajjaGojja Speed Quiz” corner.

Gain said about Seulong “He is a friend that I get along with well. He is the only member that Jo Kwon is not jealous of” and asked “Is Kwon there right now?” she asked suspiciously, making the participants laugh.

“Have you thought of Seulong as a man?” asked MC Park Misun and Gain answered “I’ve been good friends with Seulong for a long time so he doesn’t make my heart flutter at all and only Jo Kwon does” which grabbed the attention of the participants.
