Currently, the upcoming show “K-Pop Star” is gaining a lot of attention for having recruited JYP and Yang Hyun Suk of YG as judges for the survival show. The PD of the show Park Sung Hoon divulged how he was able to recruit them.
Park Sung Hoon stated, “We knew from the start that we needed to bring in Yang Hyun Suk and JYP, it wasn’t like the two had no inclination to join the show. However, the two seemed to have some reservations of appearing on TV after such a long time.” “We believe that they decided to join on because they saw that the show would be very successful.”
“K-Pop Star” is a program that has now combined the forces of SM, YG, and JYP. Everyone is curious as to who will join the show as a judge from SM Entertainment. Currently Park Sung Hoon PD revealed that they are talking with SM, but for who will appear, nothing is set in stone.

The world of music audition programs just got a whole lot more interesting, as it’s been confirmed that Yang Hyun Suk and J.Y. Park will be appearing as guest judges on SBS’s ‘Survival Audition K-Pop Star‘. It will be the first time that such representative and influential figures in the Korean music industry will be making a joint appearance like this.
These two can easily be referred to as ‘Hallyu makers’, standing together at the center of the K-Pop wave. It seems they’ve agreed to judge the auditions in order to find talent capable of shocking the world.
Yang Hyun Suk called ‘Survival Audition K-Pop Star’ a “Talent identification program that holds the rest of the world as its target. We’re capable of seeing talents that the person auditioning may not even realize themselves. I want to people recognize their own talents and help them grow from there.”
J.Y. Park commented, “Age and nationality won’t matter. We’re only interested in dancing, singing, rapping, or any other musical talents and can promise to take care of the rest.”
The show plans to center around YG, JYP and SM Entertainment’s search to find and create the next generation of K-pop stars. The winner of the competition will win an impressive monetary prize, record an album to be released worldwide, and receive CF modeling contracts as well as cars.

This is old news and perhaps all of you already knew about this. But it doesn’t hurt to still share it right?
Se7en tweets the girls (SunYe, YeEun and YooBin) and San E regarding the Beats by Dr Dre event! YooBin replied! 🙂 It’s good to see this friendship between JYP & YG! 🙂
On the last episode of Made in Wonder Girls, the girls and JYP talked about the girls’ ideal type and JYP was stuck when asked about So Hee‘s ideal type. So it’s the girls to the rescue! Guess what she said..:D
Sohee’s ideal type is a guy that is fun and bright. But also looks after her warmly”, with the other members adding, “Sohee’s ideal type is the opposite of Hyerim’s. Hyerim’s ideal type can dress badly, but look good. Where Sohee’s ideal type doesn’t have to look that great, but must be stylish.”
Hehehehe. Who’s the most stylish male in Kpop? (Well, I can’t exactly say in Korea, cuz there might be other stylish males but in Kpop, there’s only one! :D) *Emphasis on the “MUST be stylish” 😀
It’s this person right here:
Who’s with me? 😉
I’m sure most of you will have read the particular article on AKP, where Dae Sung mentioned that he wants to go to America and JYP says the only way you can do that if you become part of Wonder Girls. Then Dae Sung immediately auditioned by singing the chorus of “Nobody“, so enthusiastically, and I find that super cute! Haha.
And I choose to believe he sang that part because of Ye Eun. Don’t correct me. LOL. Even though the most logical reason would be that is the chorus and people always tend to sing the chorus 🙂
But isn’t it great to see JYP and Dae Sung having fun like that? It just shows this JYG love that is going around.. hehe 🙂
In fact, I remember reading an article a few years back in 2007, about how JYG are always competing.
Se7en vs Bi
Big Bang vs Wonder Girls
I tried finding that article again but couldn’t. Oh well.
JYP Ent & YG Ent, fighting!

We had WonderBang in 2007.
We had WonderBang in 2008.
Though this year, both Wonder Girls and Big Bang weren’t as active (as a whole group) in Korea, let’s make WonderBang happen in 2009.
It’s gonna be difficult but we’ve got to try 🙂
