May 28,2009 rating is out…

Boys Over Flowers (30.9%) vs Hole in the Wall (14.3%)

Having the four gorgeous boys in the primetime block…A good move for the station


F4 to F1?

It has been announced a few weeks back in Philippine television that the complete force from the four member flower group in a now popular TV show in the Philippines F4(korean F4) will go to the Philippines.

At first i saw this coming but ….How? The four of the main cast is now facing their own individual career. With the lead Lee Min Ho attending to non stop cf shoot and photoshoots, Kim Hyun Joong in an Asian tour with his band SS501, Kim Bum shooting for a new sreies and Kim Joon reaching out to fans as a member of the Korean trio group T-Max how can they be in the Philipppines in 10 weeks time? 5 weeks has passes and another 5 weeks to go but still no exact confirmation for F4 visiting the Philippines.

According to the grapevine only 1 member of the main cast can be present sometime in August. Who can that member be? That is something we should uncover…wild guess? KIM JOON! 2nd? KIM BUM.

HEY YA! Junjin’s comeback

True to his image as Korea’s counterpart to US Justin Timberlake, Junjin had his comeback as a singer thru his single Hey ya! featuring Son Dam Bi. A very different image from his wardrobe in Wa. A very hippie Junjin made his comeback in MBC’s Music Core.

With this new image on the works lets hope this will bring him to the flatform of a true entertainer as a soloist JUNJIN away from Shinhwa’s Junjin. This single may bring Junjin on the level of success with his fellow Shinhwa member Shin Hyesung and M Minwoo.

Wait and see to wherever Hey Ya can bring him!
