Pinoys can finally meet their favorite Korean stars in November—but only if they demand it.

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Philippines-Republic of Korea Diplomatic Relations, the Korean embassy is holding a cultural festival November this year.

The festival will also cap year 2009 as the “Philippines-Republic of Korea Friendship Year,” as stated by Proclamation No. 14298 signed by Pres. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo last May 2008.

PEP had a chance to talk to Kiejoo Kim, Counselor for the Korean Embassy in the Philippines, last Thursday, Sept. 17, at Shangri-La Plaza Cinema 3 during the press screening for the upcoming Korean Film Festival in Shangri-La Plaza Cinema 3.

Kim said his Embassy is planning to bring Korean performers to the country.

“We are looking forward to a lot of events in November,” he said. “There will be a cultural event, and we are going to invite cultural performers from Korea so that we can share our cultural legacy.”

PEP asked Kim if the Korean Embassy is planning to include among the cultural performers the Korean pop (K-pop) stars currently making waves in the Philippine music scene today.

“I’m not in a position to guarantee who we can bring to the RP,” Kim answered. “We will try our very utmost to bring our well-renowned Korean stars so that we can really enjoy together with the Filipino people.”

But Kim quickly added that the plan can push through easily if Pinoys loudly voice out their demand, using surveys, blogs, signature drives, and other platforms.

Jaejoong Is the Fairest of Them All

Some awesome news about DBSK! YAYYYY!

Although DBSK, especially JJ, are not Japanese, they ranked pretty well on polls about the most attractive male stars in Japan. But of course Cassies the world over know they’re the best looking. Period. Heh~

It’s well known that TVXQ / DBSK / Tohoshinki’s Jaejoong is very popular with the ladies in Japan. Despite not being Japanese, he was in the top 10 ranking for the“Top 10 Artists You Want As Your Lover” poll and also awarded “The Top Prince in Japan.” Now, he can add another title as one of Japan’s best looking artists.

On CDShop’s Tsutaya Online there was a poll with the title “Most attractive Male Singer,” Jaejoong came in second place with 23.9% (632,202) votes, only trailingHotaka Yamashita (Ikimono Gakari) with 30.7% (810658) votes. Jaejoong wasn’t the only TVXQ member with votes as his fellow bandmates were respectively ranked as well: Micky Yoochun at #11, Xiah Junsu at #27, Changmin at #32, and Yunho at #34. Surprisingly, another Korean artist was in the ranking as well and that was T.O.P.of Big Bang who came in at #35. Thanks to Marina for the tip and sharingyoochun for sharing the information.

Keeping Both Jaebom and the Remaining 2PM in Mind

wahaha long title again. it’s hari raya night and i’m really bored but i’ve got a thought to share about this~

Credit: time2sub2@YT + one2dayforums

well~ i guess it’s really nice and all that the International Hottest Community has been rallying support, protesting and all outside of JYPE to get Jaebom back but we must always remember that there are still 6 others. It’s fishy that JYP did not make Jaebom come back despite Jae’s existing 7 year contract… some say it’s coz Jae may have issues with JYP itself but consider that it could be JYP is respecting Jae’s decision since as we usually note JYP is really close to 2PM. And then also acknowledge that about 3000 odd people demanding you commit suicide may be quite traumatizing as to influence Jae’s decision to keep off the stage for the time being.

What I’m saying essentially is…since the main point of the moron who created this nonsense was to eliminate competition (read: to get rid of 2PM essentially totally) if we really get caught up with our emotions (again) 6 more careers may be sacrificed. Protest responsibly people 😀

Lee Minho Is Coming To Singapore

hehe i’ve been really avoiding reporting on kpop since it’s been so depressing heh~ BUT! Better report this asap so you LMH fans get time to plan a trip to SG (if your not already here) coz LEE MINHO IS COMING TO SGGGGGGG 😀

Source: allkpop

Remember earlier where we said Lee Minho was coming to Singapore for Etude House ION Orchard outlet official opening? Well, Minho’s trip to Singapore on 10th October has been delayed.

But the good news is that Lee Minho will still be in Singapore two weeks later instead, on 24th October for a 2D1N promotional trip. No further details were made available again but the new date will be ideal for those who couldn’t find time earlier to chase him around Singapore and bad luck unfortunately for those who have already made plans earlier.

For those keen on first-hand updates on his trip, do visit Etude House Singapore on Facebook and become a fan.

For those who can’t wait to see Lee Minho in Singapore, spend a minimum of $10 at any Etude House outlet (Plaza Singapura, ION Orchard) in Singapore to redeem a poster of him, whilst stocks last!

Many thanks to zax for the tip.
