The Korean entertainment in 2010 was marked by the
surge of the popularity of K-pop and Korean films advancing in the
international arena. However, the K-pop music scene was rocked by
controversies, including the issues surrounding popular boy bands TVXQ,
2PM and SS501.
Under The Cut. Here are the top 10 stories that have made significant impact in the Korean entertainment last year.
TVXQ/JYJ - The controversy involving top K-pop boy band TVXQ started in
2009 and continued in 2010. After Xiah Junsu, Micky Yoochun and
Youngwoong Jaejoong sued SM Entertainment to void their exclusive
contracts with the agency in 2009, the three focused on their career in
Japan and established their own group, JYJ. But after a successful run
in Japan, Avex, JYJ’s Japanese agency, announced in September that it
would stop JYJ’s activities in Japan. JYJ then released their first
English album, “The Beginning,” in October and embarked on a world tour
including performing in the United States. SM Entertainment, on the
other hand, announced that the remaining members of TVXQ, Yunho and
Changmin, would be coming back and the two would use the name TVXQ, a
move that did not sit well with some fans. While the idea of uniting all
the members of TVXQ is now elusive, fans are hoping that one day, TVXQ
will be back with the original five members performing as one.
Jay Park and 2PM - Another controversy that rocked the K-pop industry
was the ouster of rapper and bboy Jay Park (aka Park Jaebum) as leader
of boy band 2PM. On February 25, JYP Entertainment announced that it was
terminating Jay from 2PM. This angered fans who wanted the agency to
explain the real reason it decided to oust Jay. A conference between JYP
representatives, 2PM members and fans was held on Feb. 27, where 2PM
members admitted that they all agreed to terminate Jay from the group.
In March, Jay posted a viral video on YouTube that started his trek back
to the K-pop industry. In April, Jay announced that he would be
starring in “Hype Nation,” his first movie. With the help of many
people, including Ned Sherman, who became Jay’s lawyer for his
activities, Jay successfully came back to South Korea in June and
launched his solo career. Despite parting ways with 2PM, Jay repeatedly
said that he still loves 2PM members.
SS501 - Another boy band that was involved in controversy was SS501,
headed by popular actor and singer Kim Hyun Joong. When the boy band’s
contract with DSP Entertainment expired in June, members signed up with
different agencies. Kim Hyun Joong signed up with KeyEast Entertainment.
This worried fans who feared that SS501 would be headed for
disbandment. However, the members assured that SS501 will continue as a
4. K-pop invades Japan -
More K-pop groups debuted in the lucrative Japanese music market.
Several years ago, TVXQ and BoA paved the way for the entry of K-pop
music in Japan. Big Bang has also become popular there. In 2010, Girls
Generation, KARA and 2PM also debuted in Japan while FT Island debuted
as a mainstream group.
5. Scandals - From drugs
and gambling to alleged evasion of enlisting in the Korean military,
Korean stars were involved last year in different scandals and
controversies. Entertainer Shin Jung Hwan is now living outside Korea
after becoming news fodder for allegedly failing to pay his gambling
debt in Cebu. Rapper MC Mong is now on trial for allegedly having his
teeth pulled out in order to dodge military service. Actor Kim Sung-Min
was arrested for possession of methamphetamine. Rapper Crown J was also
charged with allegedly using marijuana while he was in the US. Super
Junior member Kangin was fined for drunk driving, an incident that
prompted him to enlist in the army. Singer Lee Hyori was also involved
in a controversy when it was found that some tracks from her 2010 album,
“H-Logic,” were plagiarized. The album composer was eventually charged
and convicted by a court and was sentenced to imprisonment.
K-pop’s popularity surges in the Philippines - 2010 marked the debut of
different K-pop acts in the Philippines. SHINee started the trend in
2009 when the group performed at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
Super Junior included the Philippines in its Super Show 2 Asia Tour.
Pop star Rain, BEAST, FT Island, 4Minute, Kim Hyun Joong and U-Kiss also
visited the country. The popularity of K-pop also resulted in brisk
K-pop album sales in the Philippines.
lawsuit and acquittal - Asian pop star Rain was again swept in a
controversy when a Korean-American businessman sued the singer for fraud
and breach of contract in the US. Concert promoter Andrew Kim filed a
case against Rain to claim $2 million, including $150,000 in alleged
gambling debt. The singer and his agency, J. Tune Entertainment,
vehemently denied the charges. On the other hand, Rain won a lawsuit
last December against an investor regarding his concert in Hawaii in
2007. A Seoul court ordered the businessman to pay Rain close to
8. Girls Generation dominates K-pop
industry - Nine-member Girls Generation dominated the K-pop industry in
2010 based on album sales and popularity. The girl group won the grand
prize in the 25th Golden Disk Awards in addition to numerous awards it
received in 2010. Online music site Monkey3 cited Girl Generation’s “Oh”
as the No. 1 Best Song in 2010. Hanteo, another online music site,
bestowed the 2010 Best Singer Award to Girls Generation. The pop group
also became successful in Japan, winning the Best New Artist award in
the 52nd Japan Record Awards.
9. Hangeng wins
lawsuit vs SM Entertainment - It took one year before this Super Junior
member achieved his goal to be free from the clutches of SM
Entertainment. Last December, the Seoul Central District Court annulled
Hangeng’s contracts with SM Entertainment, paving way for the Chinese
member of Super Junior to chart to his solo career.
Tablo and the Stanford University issue - Hip-hop singer Tablo was
swept in a controversy when netizens accused him of faking his Stanford
University degree. The online attacks lasted for months. Despite that,
the university had issued certifications to prove that the singer was
indeed a Stanford graduate. The controversy prompted Tablo to bring a
camera crew to Stanford to interview officials and prove once and for
all that the allegations were all lies. A police investigation cleared
Tablo, and 14 persons were charged with maligning the singer.
