SBS Inkigayo makes another return on a Sunday afternoon, which just happens to be on Halloween, so fans can look forward to a series of top performances.
The Take 7 nominees were miss A (‘Breathe‘), 2PM (‘I’ll Be Back‘), Ga-In (‘Irreversible‘), 2NE1 (‘Go Away‘), B2ST (‘Soom‘), Supreme Team (‘Then Then Then‘), and SHINee (‘Hello‘). Due to special circumstances, Supreme Team and miss A were not able to appear on the show.
As always, there is only one trophy, and the winner of this week’s Mutizen went to Ga-In who couldn’t quite believe it as she stayed silent for a few seconds before speaking! But it was really long overdue for Ga-In who have topped various music charts in recent weeks. Congratulations!
But of course, there were several other notable performances from Psy, Rainbow, SG Wannabe, Eru, Nine Muses and Bohemian, so be sure to check them out!
Halloween is finally here and you know what that means! Ghouls, ghosts, and… furballs?
On October 31st, Jay Park tweeted, “I’m thinking about growing a beard kk happy halloween,” and uploaded a photo of himself donning a fake beard and mustache.
After seeing his hilarious picture, fans left comments such as, “I’m against you growing a beard!”, “Is this a Halloween surprise? Cute”, “Not that much hair…”, and “Furball ahjusshi? Instead, change into furball oppa.”
Should Jay consider growing an actual beard?
Actor LMH will be the narrator for a documentary appealing for help for the global village natural disaster victims.
The current location of Haiti and Chile will be introduced in the documentary to share the messages of sorrow and love together with UN.
The documentary will be first revealed on Nov 11 at Japan’s Tokyo Dome at a UN ‘friendship’ themed event which is also LMH’s solo charity event titled ‘love & peace’, and will be shown on Mnet Japan.
LMH’s management company Starhaus entertainment revealed that ‘we are participating since we identify with the purpose of the documentary. The recording for the narration has been completed.”
LMH says it’s an honor to take part in doing good and hope that the earthquake devastated areas of haiti, chile and indonesia will be quickly restored.
LMH’s fans have already jumped on the bandwagon to join him. LMH’s korean fan community are collecting donations for Unicef campaigns (in which LMH is the honorary ambassador) such as for Haiti. They collected 6220 thousand won for the recent Unicef sponsored G20 Asia Song Festival event, and the donation is steadily progressing through text messages.
LMH’s South America fanclub is seeking donations for US Unicef for the upcoming Christmas through twitter. Fans all over the world have also been sharing phrases like ‘please pray for Indonesia who’s going through the pain of a huge natural disaster’ through twitter since the 27th.
Fans comment that ‘it feels good to be involved in something good’, ‘i don’t think of it as just giving money for a donation. When i look at an entertainer who leads by doing good will, I am trying to share the load as much as I’m able to with the rest’,’I feel really happy to know that i can help with just 1000 won’.
A fan gives Director GHS a surprise that brought happy smile.
23rd TIFF runs from Oct 23~31. GHS is also a popular actress in Japan due to BOF. YOSOOL is her first full-length feathre film. GHS is attending the Q&A session.
GHS revealed that she was inspired to write MAGIC or YOSOOL due to one of her favorite poems also called YOSOOL since high school days and the poet’s name is Han Yong Woon. Due to the complicated and very abstract nature of the poem, she cannot say she thoroughly understood the meaning of the poemm, however something in the poem sent her a message and moved her.
GHS said that she is influenced and inspried by Japan’s Director YiWaYi SooJi especially when viewers look at the snow scene. She respects the work of not only Director YiWaYi Soonji but also Director Miyazaki Hayao.
While GHS is in the middle of Q&A, a fan gave GHS a surprise gift with a birthday song? in order to congratulate GHS for her upcoming 26th birthday on Nov 9th. GHS expressed extreme happiness for such unexpected surprise that she never received before.
A fan who worried that GHS will eventually leave acting all together was very happy to hear that GHS will continue both acting and directing work. Director GHS also stated that she would like to make more fantasy films with happy endings.
