SHINee - ‘The First’ Japan Arena Tour Showtime Schedule

SM Entertainment to have their own booth at the ’2012 MIDEM’ in France

SM Entertainment, the label that’s home to major K-pop artists such as TVXQSuper JuniorGirls’ Generation, and more will have their own SM Entertainment booth at ‘MIDEM 2012‘ in Cannes, France.
The Marché International du Disque et de l’Edition Musicale (MIDEM) is the largest music industry trade fair in the world, and has been taking place every year in France since 1967. The event brings together musicians, business people, and others from all over the world to “showcase new artists, musical trends and music-related products.”
This year, the ‘MIDEM 2012′ will be taking place in Cannes, France from January 28th to the 31st, and SM Entertainment will be holding their own booth to meet with internationally-acclaimed musicians.
SM Entertainment has been attending the MIDEM for the past 15 years studying the international music market, securing the copyrights of famous artists’ songs at the MIDEM, but this is the first time that SM Entertainment will be opening their own independent booth. In the past, they acquired music samples from Europe and the US, or joined with another corporation to open a joint-booth, slowly expanding their name and presence.
Seeing that a Korean entertainment company is able to confidently set up a corner at the largest music industry trade fair in the world proves just how much K-POP has impacted the world. SM Entertainment is more determined than ever, and they’re prepared to make a break through in the international music market.
MIDEM representatives remarked, “SM Entertainment has been attending the MIDEM even before the MIDEM name carried any weight. Their efforts have paid off, as they’re now able to come independently and open their own booth.”

SHINee Minho’s Sitcom “Salamander Guru and the Shadows” Release First Stills

SHINee Minho’s first sitcom show, SBS “Salamander Guru and the Shadows,” released its first batch of still cuts today. The photos came from the filming that took place on January 3.
The first recording was about a scene where Lee Byung Joon, the real “Salamander Guru” who suffers from dementia, goes around lifting the skirts of a nurse and a model. He portrayed his perverted character perfectly well, bringing positive reviews from the entire set.
Staff members also noted that Lee Byung Joon led the whole crew to create a family-life atmosphere, even bringing a portable heat pack to Minho’s mouth to help his pronunciation in the freezing weather.
The veteran comic actors, Oh Dal Soo and Lim Won Hee, also played their characters realistically, causing everyone on set to burst out in laughter throughout the whole filming session.
“’Salamander Guru and the Shadows’ is not just a regular sitcom about friends, lovers, and family. It’s a comic story involving mystery and a villain. Despite the cold weather, all the cast members are working hard for it, so we expect this show to be ‘daebak,’” the production crew said.
The first episode of “Salamander Guru and the Shadows” will air on January 27, so make sure you check it out!

Minho Filming Salamander Guru and the Shadows

…Minho, who is making his first try at acting as genius hacker Minhyuk, greeted the staff politely as he entered the filming site and finished the filming with a polite bow. He was praised by the staff for his manners. He looked perfectly well-adapted at the first filming session as he played with a bright smile during breaks. And he looked sincere when he had serious talks with sunbae-nims like Lee Byungjoon, Oh Dalsoo, and Lim Wonhee about acting.

SHINee Mobile Update: 20120111 (Staff Blog) »

Everyone on the mobile fansite.
It’s early in the new year, and I think I want to start off the staff blog (with) hot pictures of SHINee.

So immediately, continuing from Master Artist Minho from the other day, Master Artist Key was born. This is Master Artist Key in immense concentration as he draws the staff.

But this time, the portraits of the ordinary staff aren’t included.
Hey, what’s this?
It’s the spot where goods are designed.
But, this time it seems they’re not complete„, So it seems I can’t present it to the public.
Please look forward to it next time!
And now one more (picture)

It looks like big brother is monopolizing the game, while the younger brother waits for his turn. (laugh)

[interview] Taemin with Cine 21 on Koala Kid

You acted a Koala character. Do you like Koala?

Taemin: I know very well even about its habits. I studied it after I  got the role of Johnny. (laugh) Koala eats only eucalypt and acacia  leaves and drinks little water. It’s said Koala means “no drink”. Koala  sleeps 20 hours a day. It eats or rests for the remaining 4 hours. It  lives on the east side of Australia…

-How was it when you received this dubbing offer?

Taemin: I was glad to have this opportunity to make a challenge for a  new area. I told my manager hyung I’d love to take it. It’s an honor  for me to work with Sunny noona and Yoon Dahoon sunbae-nim.

-It must have been easier for Taemin (to do dubbing) since you have an acting experience at sitcom Taehee Hyegyo Jihhyunnie.

Taemin: I’m not so good at acting in fact. I was at the stage of  learning when I did the sitcom. I thought it would be similar, but it  turned out to be difficult because I’m not really acting Johnny. It was  not like acting with facial expressions, but dubbing an animation seemed  totally different. As Sunny noona pointed out, we were supposed to  over-act ourselves, so I tried to do so.

-Johnny is a bit timid and hesitant, and Miranda is a strong Koala  character. Was there anything special the director wanted for each  character’s voice?

Taemin: The director was thinking about what vocal tone is good for  Johnny, and after testing my voice, he said it matches (Johnny) well, so  he doesn’t have to. I was really lucky. It was easy for me because my  voice matched the character’s image.

-Johnny and Miranda bicker a lot and finally fall in love with each  other. I heard you recorded this part separately. The scene seems to be a  bit embarrassing.

Sunny: I listened to Taemin’s recording. I dubbed over it. When I  heard Taemin’s voice, I burst out into laughter. The director asked me  why I was laughing, and I said, “How could Taemin record the  embarrassing scene.”

Taemin: I did it embarrassed. (laugh) I re-did it after Sunny noona  recorded it. The first recording is much more embarrassing than the  final one.

-I heard doing exclamations are more difficult than the lines when you do animation dubbing for the first time.

Sunny: There’s a scene where Johnny and Miranda fall riding a lizard  like a bobsleigh. Taemin made a 3-tier “eu-ah~” so honestly like “eu-ah~  eu-ah~ eu-ah~”. It made me laugh so much. Then the director listened to  my recording and said, “Sunny-ssi, you’re not in a position to laugh at  someone.” (laugh)

Taemin: Such an exclamation or breathing is really difficult, and  timing is also hard. Breathing is needed for even small details.  (lifting a paper cup from the table silently) This is not right.  “Heu-ut~” You should do like this. (laugh)

-What is a memorable scene in Koala Kid?

Taemin: Hmm, the ending scene is memorable. There is Miranda and Johnny’s kiss scene. It came out beautiful.

-Do you want to try acting, not just dubbing?

Taemin: Given a chance, I’d like to. It was my dream to be a cool idol who can do everything well.
