Jonghyun: If not, then let me ask you in another way; Minho's closest member in TVXQ Choikang Changmin said "Our explosive charismatic Minho ah~ your hyung can't sleep right now, so can you sing a song for me?"
Onew: Wait, this is Changmin senior...
Jonghyun: Sorry, Changmin teacher said it. What song would Minho sing for Changmin?
Key: It must be hard
Minho: Honestly, Changmin has been pretty depressed lately...
Jonghyun: Just what did Minho sing to Changmin?
Minho: Changmin-hyung has a song he really likes, but doesn't listen to it often because it's his cellphone ringtone... I'm the one who listens to it more so I sang it to him
Jonghyun: What song is it?
Minho: It's called "Confession of a passionate man". 'It's not like that, my heart isn't like that, for you, only left with a prepared confession, if it isn't just my love for you, compared to this, I have more romantically sweet words in store...'
Jonghyun: That was well sang. We'll clap 3 times, but 'tallest Chang-god'
Everyone: HAHAHA
Jonghyun: So this was for 'tallest Changmin senior'?
Minho: Yes
Jonghyun: 'It's not like that, my heart isn't like that...'
Minho: No, this is just the song I wanted to sing
Onew: The people who are listening to this radio show right now may misunderstand their relationship. Some people took Minho's back for a girl's, so photos of him and Changmin sitting together were mistook as Changmin's rumored girlfriend. How did you feel when you first heard of this?
Minho: Very imposing, that was my first rumor ever
Jonghyun: Your first rumor was with TVXQ's tallest Changmin, and then the song you wanted to sing for him was "Confession"
Minho: At that time, I was attending TVXQ's Yunho senior's Michael Jackson Memorial Concert performance. It was really cold that day, so I started talking with Changmin about the weather and such.
Jonghyun: Do you want to send him an audio message?
Minho: Why make an audio message all of a sudden?
Onew: If we let you do it then do it! We're the DJ's
Minho: My first rumor wasn't with a girl, but rather a guy. To me, it is a huge honor. However, because of the rumor, our relationship has become more cautious and demure. I hope it won't be like this later on, because you are my most loved hyung, yet I'm still inadequate to be called your dongsaeng. I will do my best, and I wish we can continue to maintain our relationship in the future.

KBS 2TV's new miniseries , which is receiving love from both domestic and overseas fans, is preparing a unique production report conference that mirrors a large-scale variety show.

The production report conference, which will be held on the 17th, will not follow the traditional form of introducing the drama and holding a press conference. Instead, it plans to please the eyes and ears with various attractions such as a mask performance, laser show and hanbok fashion show.

Also, another reason why this production report conference is so unique is because it will be the first to be simultaneously aired live on both Daum (www.daum.net) and KBSi (www.kbsi.co.kr). This has never been done before, and it can be seen as a surprise gift for domestic and overseas fans who have been supporting .

PD Kim Yeon Sung of said, "We have prepared a unique production report conference filled with various attractions in order to give back to our fans who have been supporting and waiting for ," and "Not only will our press conference be unique, but will also bring something special with a new 'Historical Youth' genre.

Hi everyone! Thanks for voting!
We've decided to close the poll early since many fans already voted and we want to enter our design so we can start printing the towels.

Anyways, first place goes to Design 6!:














However, DBSKnights decided to switch the colors so it would be red text on white towel. The original one (red towel with white text) is more expensive; We don't want the fans to pay more.
We hope you still like it!
This is the preview of how our towel will look like:














We are going to be selling 100 towels at the SMTown live meet-up! So come early and buy your towel! :) It will be $3 each.

Also, we are taking orders from non-concert goers only (please do not preorder with us if you are going to the meet-up/concert). Email us at dbsknights@hotmail.com.

Lee Soo-man, chairman of top talent agency and record label SM Entertainment, firmly holds the title of the Korean entertainment scene’s richest stock investor, with his stock wealth amounting to more than 60 billion won ($51 million), data showed Wednesday.

According to chaebul.com, an online financial information provider, the former singer’s stockholding is valued at 61.7 billion won as of Aug. 10, increasing more than 200 percent this year.

Lee owns a 28.25 percent stake in SM Entertainment which he founded in 1995. Traded on the KOSDAQ, shares in the firm soared a whopping 186 percent this year from 4,750 won per share on Jan. 4 to 13,600 won on Aug. 10, after it reported a four-fold increase in overseas label sales and royalty income in the first quarter of this year.
Lee Soo-man

SM Entertainment, who was run by Lee until February, has produced major performers like H.O.T, S.E.S and BoA and now represents groups such as Girls’ Generation and Super Junior.

Second-richest was TV and movie star Bae Yong-joon, a.k.a. Yonsama.

He holds a 34.6 percent stake in Keyeast Co., a celebrity management and visual contents maker listed on KOSDAQ. His stake is evaluated at 13.2 billion won, up 8.84 percent from early this year.

Singer Yang Soo-kyung, who is married to the former CEO of Yedang Entertainment, another talent agency, ranked third-richest in stocks among entertainers, holding shares in the firm worth 3 billion won.

Actress Kyun Mi-ri came in the fourth place, followed by singer BoA.

Asian superstar Rain, who took the third spot in the ranking early this year, did not make the list this time because he sold off his entire stake in J. Tune Entertainment in June.

Changmin arrived in Japan on the rainy night. Although this time he had tight schedule and only managed to spend two days and one night in Japan, but because it was the first time to do photo shooting in a comfortable old Japanese-style house with good ventilation, so Changmin's stress expression was slowly relieved.

'This is my first time to be photographed in this old Japanese style house, it does made people feel comfortable. It has been a long time since my last time to spend time at home properly. I hope that one day, I can decorate the room with simple style and the style that suits me.'
Especially these past six months, because of his first challenge in acting, he almost had no leisure time. He had to rush between Seoul and Jeju Island to film his drama series, and had been very busy everyday. Either it was the recitation of lines, or living together with co-actors and staff, they were fresh experiences for Changmin.

'This is really an experience that I need to begin from zero, so it is very difficult for me. Before this, I always work with people who are very close to me, however this time I have to work with new acquaintances, which is a big difference for me. Since I know nothing in acting, so I always try not to trouble the others by memorizing the lines well. In every single day during filming process, while I was learning, I was working hard too. The role I played is a male character, who although has a lot of weak points, but still enjoys high popularity. The character maybe slightly different from me (lol). If according to the genre, it should be a happy romantic comedy. If there’s a chance to be broadcasted in Japan, please make sure to watch it!!’

Before this, Changmin who accumulated his abilities and showing his charm on stage as a singer, now he will have the opportunity to show everyone his fresh side which hasn’t been discovered previously, a new side which is totally different from him singing on stage.

‘Even though I am embarrased to say this, but during this period of time, I trully feel that I have grown, and have cherished myself more than before. I have always been showing myself without reservation to everyone as a singer, but through the challenge in acting this time, I begin to realise this issue for the first time, which is how to express myself in a better way. The things that I have learned by practising the acting skills, they are going to be valuable experiences in my future as an artist.’

‘I usually spend my leisure time by watching anime “One Piece”, or focus in my favourite games until I become an expert in it(lol). I refuse to give up in things I like, further more I am the type of person who will completely ignore the surroundings if I am interested in something.’
‘Work is important to me no matter when.’
‘Because of this, in order to memorize the lines well during the filming process, I need to control the desire to read my favourite book.’
‘Because my father is a Korean language teacher, hence I have been educated to read book whenever there is a chance since I was small. I am reading even in plane. Since I’m not good in Hanja (chinese characters), so I always read books written in Hangul (Korean’s characters). For example novels, philosophy books, proses, etc.
“Secret” is a book which documenting the secret of success of many people. I got the inspiration of “Able to realise your dreams if keep on working hard with a positive manner” from there. My favourite novel is Haruki Murakami’s “Norwegian Wood”. Although the generation is different, but I am same age with the lead character in the book. Haruki Murakami’s novel not only interesting, but also inspiring. I like the time when I am reading the book, I get indulged in the world created by the author. I am looking forward to his new novel ‘1Q84’.

During the interview, Changmin often showed us his bright smile. When he saw the staff who was explaining the interesting parts of the Ipad enthusiastically, he laughed and said, ‘Why do you look like a salesman?’ When he talked about a touching Korean novel he read previously which describes a Salmon’s life, he couldn’t recall the title. So he laughed and said, ‘I am really absent-minded.’ Changmin had brought so much happiness to everyone surrounding him.
One of the staff said, when the professional Korean baseball team ‘Twines’ which Changmin worships had won the match, he analysed himself as,’if compared to the others, I am consider to be the emotional type of person.’ When he was asked the way to relieve his depression, his answer was driving a car late at night. Last week I was depressed too with unknown reason, so I drove alone to Incheon’s coast at 10pm. Although I went back after just staring blankly at the sea, but the activities like hiking, going for a walk can adjust my mood, so it is very important to me.’

Changmin who had spent his 20 years in fast pace, has never thought of retreating. In his mind only appears one thought, that is to move forward step by step pragmatically. Changmin who steps on stage as a singer and actor, is only 22 years old. His adventure has just begun. In the future, he will definitely show us the side which is hidden behind his innocent smile and yet to be discovered by us.
