Siwon Spreads the Love to His Fans with Daily Tweets

Super Junior's Siwon in London with fans!

I don’t think there’s a better communication tool for celebrities to keep in touch with their fans than Twitter. Super Junior’s buff, handsome 24-year-old member Siwon Choi is known for being a physically affectionate, lovable guy. And it is certainly no surprise if you’ve been following him on Twitter. He tweets daily to keep in touch with ELFs and fans, and always manages to spare a cute picture or positive encouragement. But in the past few days, during a trip to London, he’s been teasing his fans, and I don’t know about you, but I’m sure it’s just what fans need for a smile, or a pick-me-up:

im in incheon airport now. go some where. let you guess. It’s going to be fun.”
“ate too much. beautiful street. i can feel splendor here. lovely place here. Let u guess where i am :)”
“Hello amazing city London! Let’s make beautiful time with me. find me now ;P”
“i will kiss you, if you catch me.”

He also tweeted a picture of himself this morning after a fresh shave (see right image). BWLB thanks you Siwon, for keeping your corner of the world bright with sunshine and love. Start following @siwon407 for his daily tweets and pics. You’ll be happy you did! ^^

Han Geng: Life After Super Junior

The soft-spoken former Super Junior member with the adorable laugh had long since left the popular Korean boyband before I knew anything about him. But once I learned his story, I was moved and felt it deserved to be told here. Han Geng, 27, (pronounced “Hahn Gung”) was born in Heilongjiang, China to a businessman father and housewife mother. From a young age, he had dreams of becoming an entertainer, and later as a teenager, he was given the opportunity to train in singing, dancing and acting under SM Entertainment, South Korea’s largest entertainment company. Geng moved to South Korea all by himself, and so his story with Super Junior began. Read all about his time before, during and after Super Junior here. If I thought it necessary, I would rehash all the ugly details of the suffering he endured, illnesses he developed and lawsuit he brought against SM, but that would be beating a dead horse. The good news is that he stood up, fought for his human rights, succeeded and is now thriving in China as an actor, singer and model. Whether he belongs to Super Junior or not, his countryfolk love him regardless, and they’ve been nothing but supportive since his return. He is known for being incredibly generous, and urges his fans to donate money and material things (that they would normally send to him as gifts) to his favourite charities to help fight hunger and poverty in China.

I don’t know why Han Geng’s story has touched me so deeply, but I can tell you that out of all of the guys that have been featured on this blog, Geng has definitely become one of my favourite. Let’s keep an eye on him and wish him the best with his career and future endeavors. 🙂

Super Junior Series I: Eunhyuk & Donghae

This is the first installment of the “Super Junior Series”. Over the next few weeks BOAB and I will both be introducing you all to the members and activities of Super Junior because we love them! I’m gonna lead off the series with Eunhyuk and Donghae because right now I’m currently addicted to their new single “Oppa, Oppa”.

Lee Hyuk-jae: Eunhyuk – Age 25

In SuJu I have 3 bias and they are Kim Heechul, Leeteuk and Eunhyuk. I absolutely 100% love Eunhyuk. I think he is totally adorable, super sweet and he’s funny too. What I love about him is his balance of nerdy and sexy. It really annoys me how he’s said to be the most unattractive member of Super Junior…UMMM Who exactly are they lookin at cuz its def not my Eunhyuk! I can think TWO yes TWO other SuJu members that fit the bill as the most unattractive -_- You know he was even told not to smile and if he does smile cover it up because it makes him ugly. Apparently someone is off their meds because Eunhyuks smile is super adorable and so is his nose. Anywayz Eunhyuk not only sings but he’s one of SuJu’s main rappers and dancers. He is super sexy when he dances and I will even go as far as saying he’s better than Lee Taemin. If you want to challenge my assessment fine, but head to Youtube and school yourself on his skills before talkin smack ^_^ He’s hosted a number of programs, He’s best friends with JYJ’s Junsu and he’s also a member of Super Juniors sub groups M, T, and Happy.

Lee Donghae – Age 25

Donghae has to be the coolest SuJu member; he’s suave, he’s got attitude and he looks amazing in a suit. Whether he’s raising one brow and gripping a random rope around his neck (Mr. Simple MV) or holding a glowing flower while flexing his amazing arms (Bonamana MV) he’s always sexy. I still to this day cant figure out his personality but what I do know is he’s extremely talented. Not only a singer or one of SuJu’s main dancers, he’s also a songwriter and actor. He’s composed songs with One Way’s chance, acted in the dramas ‘Its ok Daddy’s girl’ and ‘Skip Beat’ and is the brand ambassador for Maxim Contact Lenses (randommm). He belongs to SuJu’s subgroup M and a funny side note; he, SHINee’s Jonghyun and F(x)’s Amber are known as the “Dino Family” for their striking resemblance not only to each other but to dinosaurs.

Both Eunhyuk and Donghae are actually best friends and together they released the single ‘Oppa, Oppa’. It’s a fun disco infused song that gets repeated a million times while I’m working out ^_^ Make sure to peep not only SuJu’s Soul Train line battle between Yesung and Ryeowook but also the random black chick the camera focuses on in the audience. Seriously I was shocked!

K-Kisses! KrisE

SM Entertainment’s Global Auditions: Are You The Next Idol?

I would like to thank allkpop for bringing this to my attention. SM Entertainment, home of SHINee, TVXQ, and Super Junior, are holding auditions worldwide, looking for their next idol. The auditions start January 7th, 2012 in Korea and make stops in China, Japan, Canada and the United States. I am extremely interested in the States auditions. They start February 18th in New York and then moves to Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles.  The process itself seems pretty simple. If you are auditioning to be a singer, you will be required to sing acapella for up to two minutes. If you want to become a dancer, then be prepared to do a freestyle dance to music SM will provide. If acting is your thing, prepare a monologue that showcases your skills. If you are interested in auditioning but can’t make it to the in-person auditions, you can also apply through email and youtube.

SM stresses that all are welcome to audition regardless of ethnicity or race. While I am pleased they are giving this opportunity to people who live outside of Korea, I wonder if everyone really have a chance at becoming a star in Korea. I’m sure you’ll have to learn the Korean language if chosen by SM for training. The incident with Jay Park when he was debuting with 2pm under JYP is an example of how isolated and alone a person might feel when first living in Korea.

I don’t want to discourage anyone from auditioning though. Henry from Super Junior-M and Eli Woo from U-kiss are North American born and are very successful kpop idols.  I plan on keeping a close eye on the audition process. Who knows, maybe we’ll be able to see the first woman of color become a famous kpop star or costarring  with Lee Min Ho in a future drama.

For more information on the auditions, click here.

Also for those who are interested here is a list of current kpop members that are not originally from Korea (aka “Homegrown Hotties”).

Jay Park – United States
Taecyeon from 2pm – United States
Eli from U-kiss – United States
Kevin from U-kiss – United States
Zhou Mi from Super Junior M – China
Kevin from ZE:A – Australia
