[TV Report] The Entertainment Weekly episode that aired Saturday on KBS2 visited the site of a commercial shoot by one of the hottest girl groups these days, 2NE1. The four members shared stories of their lives and the accident of a broken trophy.
2NE1 is topping numerous music charts and flaunting its girl group power. One photograph they recently posted online attracted peculiar interest. It was a photo of eldest member Sandara Park frowning over a broken trophy. She dropped the trophy, which the group received during a music show, while singing an encore at the show’s end. She posted a picture of the trophy, broken into pieces, on her Internet blog.
She said on Entertainment Weekly that “officials of the program Music Bank helped us to glue the pieces together to have my trophy back as it was.”
2NE1 then talked about each member’s role at their home. Sandara is the entertainer of the group with her vivacious personality, vocalist Bom is known for her cute charm and youngest Minzy is the best cook. Last but not least, CL is the “mom.” The meticulous group leader is in charge of the overall cleaning and organizing of their living quarters.
Entertainment Weekly also interviewed Kim Myeong-min, Ha Ji-won, Chu Seong-hun and Jeong Hyeong-don. Kim talked about people’s response to his grueling diet he underwent to play the role of a Lou Gehrig’s disease patient in his new film. He lost 20 kilograms

Actor Lee Jun-ki said he had prepared special concerts for his fans to present them with a chance to have fun together and show off his hidden talents. In the news conference on July 17, Lee said he would be performing in front of his Japanese fans for the first time in three years and that the concerts were his “comprehensive gift set” for them.
On the question about his singing talent, Lee said he had no ambitions to become a singer whatsoever and that he staged his concerts solely for his fans. “I want to concentrate on acting, which I will continue to master for the rest of my life,” said Lee. But he added that he wanted to write songs and organize concerts for his fans to display his versatile talent.
Lee’s upcoming concerts will mark the re-opening of his Japanese official fan club “Splendor.” Audience members will be able to buy Lee’s DVD entitled “J-Style Special Edition.”

The girl band Wonder Girls gave a live performance of the song “Nobody” on the U.S. terrestrial TV show “The Wendy Williams Show,” which airs across America. The group’s agency, JYP Entertainment, said the Wonder Girls mesmerized the show hostess and American viewers with their costumes and performance.
Wendy Williams introduced the Wonder Girls as the “sensation and big stars of Asia.” After hearing “Nobody,” she lauded the group and embraced each member, while the audience gave the group a standing ovation.
Williams also told the audience that the Wonder Girls perform as the opening act of the Jonas Brothers’ tour and asked if the Jonas Brothers’ father, Kevin Jonas, was the Wonder Girls’ manager in the U.S.
The Wonder Girls said they were nervous prior to their performance but had great fun on the show.
The nine-member girl-band Girls Generation soared to stardom early this year with its song “Gee.” In an interview that was held June 22, the Girls’ Generation members spoke about how their popularity has changed their lives. All nine of them have been invited to appear on popular variety shows that further boosted their popularity. But there was a downside as well: fatigue from tight schedules. Hyo-yeon says she was surprised to learn that even elderly people recognized her on the street. Parodies of “Gee” were shown on innumerable shows while magazines introduced Girls’ Generation’s fashion and makeup styles.
Youn-a says she saw several photos of Girls’ Generation in a single magazine and that her photo was published in the “Horoscope Stars of the Year” section. In the military, there is even a joke that soldiers who join the army with several autographs of Girls’ Generation members are guaranteed good treatment for two years. The band members say their stylists receive one day off whenever they get their autographs and that they gave their autographs innumerable times to soldiers. They added jokingly that singer Kang Ta, who is currently serving in the military, was happy to get their autograph and is now treated with “all due respect” in the military.
Girls’ Generation, whose song “Gee” topped music charts for nine straight weeks, is now back with their second mini-album entitled “Tell Me Your Wish.” The title song of the album topped Mnet.com and finished second on Cyworld Music just one day after its release on June 22. It is poised to become the group’s sixth hit after “Into The New World,” “Girls’ generation,” “Baby Baby,” “Kissing You” and “Gee.” “Tell Me Your Wish,” which begins with the members chatting about their trip, sends a message of hope to people who are exhausted by mundane life. Unlike “Gee,” which was written as a “hook song” with a repetitive chorus, this song has diverse rhythm patterns and sophisticated sounds.
The album contains songs from diverse genres, such as the ballad duet song “One Year Later” performed by Jessica and Onew of SHINee, the refreshing euro-dance song “Etude,” the retro-style remix of the song “Girlfriend” and the cute song “Boyfriend,” about a girl who has a crush on a boy.
The Girls’ Generation members say they feel pressured to maintain their popularity despite the deluge of girl bands on the K-pop scene, such as 2NE1, After School, Brown-eyed Girls, 4minute and Tiara. Soo-young and Sunny said, “I saw 2NE1 and 4minute performing on stage. Their songs are very exciting and their costumes were gorgeous. I’m worried that our new military-style costumes might look less attractive. We’re pressured to top music charts again after the success of ‘Gee’ and we do want to break our own record.” Soo-young added, “I hope that the lyrics of ‘Tell Me Your Wish’ will become a popular catchphrase among people who need a boost of energy. We’ll stage vigorous performances on stage.”
Before the interview was over, we asked Girls’ Generation about their wishes. Youn-a says her wish is to be healthy and be able to smile happily with her loved ones. Hyo-yeon and Soo-young say they want to meet their significant others and get married, while Yoo-ri says her wish is to see Girls’ Generation remain popular for a long time. The youngest member, Seo-hyun, says she wants to become more mature because she is too dependent now as the only child in her family
