GENIA FESTIVAL: trans cassiopeia COncert!

Would you be willing to attend this type of concert?

Everyone should already know about the Shenzhen concert cancellation. During these times of doubt, our admin team has been thinking of a way to lessen everyone’s suffering and lift their spirits. There’s no need for more words, only determination and faith, along with the phrase, “We are always standing by TVXQ”. With these thoughts in mind, we came to an idea, when we noticed so many of our fellow Cassiopeians came to the same thought, Cassiopeian’s strength makes us proud. As of right now, if there is going to be a concert, the venue will decrease in size, there won’t be fancy lights and blasting speakers, and there wont be our buys… however, there will be a unity of loving hearts singing and shining in place of our boys. My dear fellow Cassiopeians, would you like to attend this type of concert?

Considering the fact that a lot our of sisters could no longer return their plane tickets, thus can not get a refund, we refuse to let those tickets go in vain. Even though you may not see our boys, we would like to create happy and unforgettable memory for them to bring home. So, we would like to propose an idol-less concert full of love.

GENIA FESTIVAL: Boyband action taking over the Kpop stage of 2nd half for 2009

The Kpop scene has taken a change, from the ‘war’ of the girlgroups which went on for the first half of the year, now is the time of the boy groups.

Just looking at the performance list for KBS Music Bank on 13th November, we have 2PM comeback stage, and also performances by FT Triple, BEAST, SHINee, UKiss, SHU-I etc. And there is also SS501 and MBLAQ who did not perform on the show that day.

And backstage, you can see the boy group members giving out their CDs and because they are all from the same age range, it was obvious that the members are close friends with one another.
Also, you can see the boys dancing and singing along when other boy bands are performing on stage.

We see a start of a change of scene on the Kpop stage with the boy groups coming back in action.

Remember how these folks were the talk of the Kpop town earlier this year?

After that I started trying to lose weight, & I’ve recently succeeded. As actor Kim Heechul, I wanna show everyone an even better side.”

Leading on, Kim Heechul expressed, “when I’m acting I’m really content. Especially when Sa Mija sunbae etc other sunbae give me advice & encourage me.” He added, “I’m working hard for every episode because I want to show an even more matured side of me.”

Kim Heechul said, “be it as an actor or a singer, I’ve always paid attention to myself, & am careful about what I do. Lately as an actor, I never slack when it comes to practicing so that I can bring an even better performance”, hope that everyone anticipates this.

GENIA FESTIVAL: Eunteuk poem

DJ Leeteuk’s poem

Image

<Autumn Wind>

Wind blows..cool autumn wind..
Wind blows..cool autumn wind that goes through my inner heart..
Fallen. My heart that has once loved you
Already burnt to ashes, that fallen leaf in my heart.
Fallen. That which has once rowed through the air
That one and only star.

That missed and yearned for season.
That lonely and solitary season.
That lonesome and desolate** season.
Wind blows. Autumn wind..

*moist as in smooth, clear…emotional?
**not as negative as it sounds, just more like alone and empty

DJ Eunhyuk’s poem

Image

<Revise Autumn>

Wind blowing
Passing my face to tell me autumn is here

Leaves falling to zero*
Passing my feet to tell me autumn is here

Prominent appetite
Fill my stomach to tell me autumn is here

Eunteuk ah have come to life
Stayed at the place of revision and thus saved KTR**

*As in there is zero left that haven’t fallen
**The “revision” probably refers to the changes in the sukira program

GENIA FESTIVAL: SJ Concert Online Sales in December….

SJ Concert Online Sales in December….
SJ Concert Online Sales in December, Not Afraid to Clash with Sub-Unit SJ-M

China Times [Ye Yixin/Taipei]

Super Junior’s (SJ), with the earth-shattering hit “Sorry, Sorry”, sub-unit SJ-M will be coming to Taiwan on December 5th and 6th to hold their fan meetings, which may clash with pre-order ticket sales period for SJ’s February 20th concert in Taipei Arena next year. SJ’s organizers, Super Dome expressed that currently the pre-order period has not been decided, but they are not worried of a clash since fan meetings and concerts are different, and SJ ticket price is slightly lower as well.
Pre-ordering of tickets for the mosh pit* area is expected to begin in December. Worried that fans may queue overnight (to get tickets), organizer Super Dome has decided to turn to the internet pre-ordering system instead. After fans have registered as a Dome member, they would be able to carry out internet booking. Through computer system selection, tickets with printed numbers will be sent out 15 days before the start of the concert, preventing scalping**.

Super Dome spokesperson Hou Wenyan pointed out that scalpers have recently tried to purchase 3,000 tickets, but were sternly denied by Dome. “Each person can purchase 4 tickets only, we will thoroughly filter through information for suspicious scalpers”. Hou Wenyan indicated that there are about 2,000 mosh pit tickets, fans who are unable to get the pre-ordered tickets will be able to purchase tickets when sitting area tickets go on sale.

* – standing area before the stage
** – tickets sold by scalpers are exceptionally high and normally they target fans without tickets outside concert venues. Another point to note is that they may not be selling real tickets

When asked “While you’re in the military and you feel a bit down, let’s say you have a photo of someone in their pajamas to comfort you; who would you want the star of this picture to be?” Boom’s answer was yet again Soyoung.

GENIA FESTVAL: IU sweetens her Inkigayo comeback

IU

After IU released her full track and music video recently, she already sweetened the stage with her performances of “Marshmallow” on Music Bank and Music Core. Now she is back for her third comeback performance on SBS‘s Inkigayo!

IU’s perfect vocals does not disappoint, and it seems like she’s getting better by the day! With all these girl groups debuting, it’s nice to see a solo artist rocking the stage with her flawless vocals and adorable dance, don’t you think? Furthermore, the adorable marshmallow mascot bouncing on the side makes the performance that much cuter.

GENIA FESTIVAL: f(x) Chu in Inkigayo

Inkigayo has a reputation for bringing the cute out in every k-pop artist, but this week they overdid it with f(x).

The quintet of SM girls preformed Chu~♡ off of their new single, but the usual boring typeset lyrics had a bit of a twist.

In the lyrics that are displayed at the bottom, every time the word Chu~♡ popped up, a big colorful heart encircled it.

As always Victoria brought the sexy, Sulli and Krystal brought the cute, Luna brought the mature, and Amber brought the fierce.

GENIA FESTIVAL : Tired of Waiting Lyrics (Romanization and English)

Translation:

I’m getting tired of waiting

You know

Do you know how I feel?

 

I’m getting tired of waiting

Do you still remember me?

 

Even as a day goes by, I can’t forget you

Even if a month goes by, I can’t let you go

Do you know that I still want you?

 

I’m going crazy while waiting for you

Every single day feels like a year

I’m waiting

I’m getting tired of waiting

 

It feels like you could come back any second

It feels like I could just turn around and see you

I’m just getting tired, I’m just getting tired

 

I fall asleep in case I see you

I’m still waiting for you

A month could pass and I wouldn’t forget you

A year could pass and I wouldn’t let you go

Do you know how I feel?

 

I’m going crazy while waiting for you

Every single day feels like a year

I’m waiting

I’m getting tired of waiting

 

It feels like you could come back any second

It feels like I could just turn around and see you

I’m just getting tired, I’m just getting tired

 

{RAP}

My head feels so complicated, I could explode

I’m waiting and waiting but no word from you

There’s no way you could leave because of me

It’s so hard for me right now, so hard for me

 

I’ll wait even if it’s a year

I’ll wait even if it’s 10 years

I don’t care if I get tired of waiting for you

 

I’m going crazy while waiting for you

Every single day feels like a year

I’m waiting

I’m getting tired of waiting

 

It feels like you could come back any second

It feels like I could just turn around and see you

I’m just getting tired, I’m just getting tired

GENIA FESTIVAL: 2PM Life Performance Comeback Stage

GENIA FESTIVAL: 2PM Life Performance Comeback Stage

Finally they back!! But it’s not 2PM, it’s 1:59 PM,, so sad with no Jaebum,, T^T.

Oh Yeah! Concert is their first comeback stages after release their new MV, heartbeat. It’s nice to see them can perform well. Hope Jaebum can back sooner so I can see his dance again in stage!! In my mind, I’m about to know why JYP give their new album name is 1:59PM. Is he now agreeing with Hottest that 2PM is gone and replaced by 1:59 PM? Or there’s a chance of Jaebum to come back to Korea and join 2PM? Well, just JYP and his mind who knows the answer.. LoL

[FANCAM] Heartbeat – 1:59M Come back stage oh Yeah! Concert

 

[Live] 091114 2PM heartbeat@Music Core

sometimes when I watch their MV or performance, I feel the emptiness. I can’t see anymore the feel of 2PM, perhaps cause Jaebum ,the leadja is not here to lead their group. I always believe that someday he’ll back to 2PM. I don’t know where’s this confidence from.  But for me, 7 is better than 6. 7-1 it never happened. 7 is always 1.

 

Finally they back!! But it’s not 2PM, it’s 1:59 PM,, so sad with no Jaebum,, T^T.

GENIA FESTIVAL: Rain Asian Tour 2009, have a concert in Indonesia??

Weew weew weew!!! This is really a good news for Rain’s fans in Indonesia,, coz oppa will held his first performance here, in our country!! The performance is held in Jakarta, Mangga Dua Square.  We must proud cause usually idols from Korea will choose some country like Malaysia, Singapore, or Thailand to held the concert. But this time is a bit different. Rain his self choose Indonesia to be the only Asia South East country that he want to perform.That’s why many fans from  country around Indonesia like Malaysia and Singapore will come to see his performance . Well,, It’s rain baby!! ^^

If you ask, “are you attend to Rain’s concert?” to me, I’ll answer immediately NO. It’s not because i’m his anti (I always watch his dramas and his song is in my mp4, so i think i’m not an anti of him raiite??), but because of that concert is held when the school day! Graaah!!! How can my college give a permit to come to Rain’s concert? Maybe they ask, “Who’s Rain?”. And I don’t want it happend. LoL

The ticket is rather expensive =( for the festival is taking cost Rp 750.000,00, the VIP is Rp 10.000.000,00!!But special for VIP’s seats, they will have a chance to meet Rain and take a photo with him,, oh,, such a lucky person,, I hope someone drop down his/her ticket so i can see Rain’s performance freely ,,khekhe,,

2PM Taecyon sends message to BEAST

2PM Taecyeon sends a message to BEAST

Earlier today we reported that 2PM member Junho sent a video message to BEAST/B2ST leader Doo Joon, wishing him luck on his debut stage.Well, it seems like fellow 2PM member Taecyeon also joined in on the fun by lending his support via his minihompy.

On Taecyeon’s minihompy, he posted a photo of BEAST and under the photo he put: “Hot Blood brother Doo Joon fighting!” showing support for the fellow Hot Blood competitor.

2PM Taecyeon sends a message to BEAST
cr: ohhoodooshi@2ONEDAY

For those not in the know, Doo Joon was previously a part of the Mnet documentary, Hot Blood. This is where he competed for a spot in One Day, the 11 member group from JYP Entertainment that eventually became popular acts 2PM and 2AM. Though Doo Joon was eliminated, through this competition he became good friends with members of both 2PM and 2AM. It’s good to see the encouragement for this new group debuting, a lot of love going around.

2PM Thailand Plans Cancelled

2pmhottest

We reported earlier that Hottests was boycotting all 2PM activities until the return of the group’s old leader, Jaebeom. Well, it seems that their efforts have worked because the trip to Thailand has now been cancelled.

An event was originally set up for 100 lucky fans who would get to spend five days in Thailand with 2PM’s NichKhun in Phuket and Bangkok. But since the boycott, the number of participants have drastically decreased with many calling in to cancel their bookings and there were only 30 people left by the end of the day on the 15th.

Due to the lack of participants, the event has now been cancelled, but feelings of not letting this great opportunity go to waste have been expressed, and it has been said that the event would be organized again at a later date.
