Okay, so while it’s still up in the air whether or not Shaun did do Tae Yang‘s new song, he did do the choreography for G-Dragon‘s latest music video, “Breathe“.

He posted on his twitter, “GD MV i did is out.

So you can thank him for giving GD such awesome choreography. Check it out.

I wonder if they have Shaun do all of GD‘s choreo as he releases his songs out one by one. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Asia Song Festival 2009 conference

And what a conference it was. Artists from all over Asia performed in South Korea for the festival. Amongst the artists in at the conference, no one had a miscommunication problem.

Gackt suprised us with his Korean, because really, he didn’t fail like Big Bang did in Japanese. SNSD showed off their fluency in English, Mandarin and Japanese. We already know 2NE1 speaks about 6 languages so there’s no need to be surprised about them.

Now they need to move their butts and have that festival here in L.A. so we can see all them perform too.

2NE1’s Sudden Attack!

2ne1

Make way for the ladies of YG as they set foot into the male dominated game, Sudden Attack.

Earlier this year, Big Bang joined Rain in joining the ranks of being a celebrity as characters in the game. Now 2NE1 will be made into characters for one of Korea’s most popular shooting games.

Doesn’t that poster look hot? CL looks badd ass, Minzy would too if she didn’t look so young. Bom looks a classy assasin from a Bond movie and Dara looks like she’s ready to hurt someone. Some netizens are speculating just how well the foursome will do. I on the other hand, is waiting to see some female domination. Kick some arses girls, show them who their mommy daddy is now.

Korean netizens are at it again

wonder girls

But this time towards American culture. According to allkpop:

Photos of the Wonder Girls signing autographs for a fan in America have recently made their way into Korean cyberspace, making Korean Wonderfuls very angry.

The photos made Korean Wonderfuls really angry which showed Sohee and Yubin, reaching over the table to sign on a worn sneaker of a fan who had placed it on the table. They felt that this was a mark of disrespect to the Wonder Girls.

Fans chided this particular American fan saying that even though the Wonder Girls weren’t that famous yet in America, they shouldn’t be subjected to this sort of humilation. Another felt that the Wonder Girls shouldn’t have signed for this fan in this manner in the first place. Many fans felt really sorry for the Wonder Girls and sincerely hope that the Wonder Girls will soon gain a foothold in America with their songs.

Is this just a cultural difference or is it being disrespectful? Other than Korean Wonderfuls and some overseas Wonderfuls, it’s nothing short of a cultural difference. Even Yuubin and Sohee saw nothing wrong with it.

While allkpop reports an eyewitness saying “it was not simply a case of cultural differences. This particular woman was accompanied by two others and when it was their turn to get autographs, this woman rudely placed her leg onto the table for Yubin and Sohee to autograph. She later laughed after getting her sneaker autographed before leaving.”

According to the eyewitness who was behind them, “Even in America, it’s rude to place your dirty worn sneaker onto the table and ask for it to be autographed. The Wonder Girls did not say anything and just signed their autographs, but it did not look nice. No wonder the Korean Wonderfuls are irate since they are a hugely popular group in Korea.”(allkpop)

At the same time a JYP representative said, “Looking at the photos, this seemed to have been taken at a fan signing event on 17th August and was organized by 93.3 FLZ radio station. But from our memory, it wasn’t quite rude like what the eyewitness had said and didn’t make the Wonder Girls uncomfortable or anything. We hope that the Wonder Girls will not be affected by this report.”

Is this just a case of Korean netizen’s looking for attention again? I think so. While some may agree that its disrespectful no matter what cultural you’re in, I bet it’s also those same people who think its okay to have a pair of boobs get signed. Is flashing an artist and have them sign their chest disrespectful? No. People do it all the time and yet it’s okay, but when you think about, one can say it is degrading to women on some level, but at the same time it’s not.

It’s matter of how things are done in one’s country. How fans react in America is very different from fans in Korea. Take the Jay Park incident. American’s shrugged that comment off, but Korean netizen’s made it so huge that it forced him to leave not just the group and company, but the country as well.

Another account can be the Dream concert that happened last year. SM Town holds a concert with all their artists, yet SuJu, SNSD, DBSK fans were at each other as if they were enemies. If you don’t remember this incident, it’s when a whole lot of fans got hurt from other artists fanclubs’ that belong to the same company. Reports of stabbing, fighting, water pouring, no cheering, and even rape, were mentioned.

If anything the fans in Korea just take fandom to a whole new level, a level in which even Bbaek-Ga of Koyote has lost respect for. Korean fans make Japanese fans look sane, and that’s an accomplishment, considering I’ve seen how those fans can get.

What do you think? Was it just a cultural difference or have the Korean fans taken it too fan, again?
