The Singapore Tourism Board has organized a Korea Festival 2008 from 1st to 18th November, with a variety of traditional and contemporary events, from fine arts to popular culture and mainstream music. But the highlight has got to be the K-Pop Concert which will be held on Tuesday evening, 4th November 2008 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Details are sketchy at the moment but the following is an email reply from the Embassy of the Republic of Korea who are the organizers for this event.
Thanks for expressing your interest in the K-Pop Concert, to be held on 4th November 2008 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
We are very excited to introduce a promising line-up of singers and performers from Korea, including established stars such as the Wonder Girls, Chae Yeon, Andy, JunJin, V.O.S., and Jewelry. Emerging artistes such as U-Kiss, 2PM, Peter and Kim Jong Wook will also feature in the performance on the 4th.
Ticketing arrangements for the K-Pop Concert are still being finalised. Tickets will not be sold through the usual outlets such as SISTIC. Instead, they will be given away over the next few weeks through our key sponsors, Far East Organisation, LG Electronics and Korean Air. You may wish to check with the above-mentioned sponsors on their plans to release tickets to the public.
Korea International Radio will also be holding live quizzes around mid-October to give away free tickets to listeners.
We encourage you to stay tuned for further developments and news in the media over the next few weeks.
It seems like it would be a lottery to get the tickets. While it’s great that the Wonder Girls are coming, but it looks like it would be a long shot to see them perform. But it’s nice to see them taking the time to come overseas to Singapore for a performance from their busy schedule. Hope that those who win the tickets are K-pop fans or at least become a convert after watching.
The list looks pretty awesome on paper. You have argubably the most popular girl group Wonder Girls, sexy Chae Yeon, two Shinhwa members going solo Andy and JunJin, Jewerly, V.O.S. and the emerging artistes.

Yoochun's Grandmother's Famous Restaurant In Seoul
Seoul’s Jongno, a 70-year-old traditional Korean restaurant, has been frequented by celebrities,South Korean President dynasties, the Japanese prime minister, political and economic circles.
It has a total of three-over 360 seats and requires reservations. DBSK has visited this prestigious restaurant in Seoul (Micky took them there.) Because of the recent re-development [construction] of the city, business was suspended for a while. It is said that it will re-open in October.
Employees have work there for long periods of time. Some have worked there for than 50 years.
More than 40% have worked for more than 10 years.
Yoochun’s grandma is skilled in operating her business.
Yoochun must have experienced vast changes [emotional] after coming to the US. After all, the environment is very different. His wealthy childhood environment has given him a graceful and calm temperament, while the hard times in the US has made him stronger and more insightful.
DBSK wants fans to stop sexual harassment
During the KBS2TV program, “Happy together season 3″ on October 9th, Jaejoong of DBSK confessed that there have been times when fans have gone too far with the body contact, “At crowded places like airports where screaming fangirls and hands are everywhere trying to cop a feel, you don’t know whose hand belongs to who.” Generally, those random hands are feeling up Jaejoong’s chest or arms but for Junsu, it’s usually the butt.
Jaejoong added, “Even if one hand has finished molesting, another hand will take it’s place. And it’s not like the hand just rests on the butt-it actually massaging it!….this verges on sexual harassment!”
Yunho also confirmed the extreme skinship that fans will go to if they get the chance-”there was an older fan who can kept massaging my face and kept saying, “aigo, so pretty” but the person who is the victim doesn’t feel so hot”.
As the world record holder of having the largest fan club with 800 thousand strong, that’s alot of horny hands who want a piece of the boys.
O.O JUNSU!!!!No surprise if he got groped but FANS MASSAGING HIS ASS?!?!?!?!?!? *goes and kill those people* THAT'S YOOCHUN'S JOB!!!!
