[DKP Exclusive] Super Junior Press Conference at Edsa Shangri La Hotel

Super Show 2 Philippines was a blast for every ELF who attended it. The concert was great and i know everybody who came felt the same way that i felt. But before the concert a press conference was held first at Edsa Shangri La Hotel at 2:30pm. There were a lot of media who came and the conference room was filled with agitated people to see Super Junior. As an author of Dailykpopnews we were given the chance to be part of the press conference and i am here to share with you all what happened during the event.

An introduction about Super Junior was first heard then the cameras were already flashing everywhere and the people were already clapping as we fans who needs to act professionally need to keep our screams to ourselves as the boys entered the room with all smiles seen on their faces. The boys introduce theirselves with their signature introduction~ "Annyeonghaseyo, We are Super Juni-or!" that somehow made the clap louder.

They first had their picture taken with the sponsors and the organizers/producers before the question and answer portion. If only i am given the chance i really really want to ask them about Kibum and Kangin but no, I'm not a media person, i don't have my license yet(LOL).

Note: This are just the things a remember. Thank you for your understanding!

I listened through out the press con and some of their answers really stick into my mind. Most of the time it was Lee Teuk who answered the questions but he also pass the mic to his members so they can answer too. Sweet leader!

There was this question when Dong hae was ask, sorry but i forgot what is it, but his answer was he wants to make a Philippine drama someday. His answer awed a lot of media people but what more about us fans right? I was shocked and i almost screamed on his answer (because i'm a Donghae bias!) and the whole time that was running in my mind was, "Please make it come true! do it! do it!". Hoping someday he can make one.

A media man ask, "Do you still feel stage fright?", Lee Teuk gave the mic to Siwon and he answered it in English "We all pray to God (before we do the show)". Such a religious man! Suddenly i notice Hyukjae coughing, we all know that he is not feeling well right? But he still attended the last stop of Super Show.

Heenim was also ask about his comeback of becoming a radio DJ. And while he was answering he was laughing. To be honest i thought he was sleeping, because all of his hair (exaggerating) was covering his eyes already. But seriously while he was talking his laugh and smile were so cute.

One funny question was about the Teukigayo, of course it points to Lee teuk, Eunhyuk and also Shindong and Teuki said he prepared something for the Philippines, and then he made this funny chant that made everybody laugh.

Again a question was ask about Sungmin and Yesung being part of an epic drama and Sungmin showed his highkick to every one! He was so cool!

To wrap up the whole conference Super Junior was ask what will the fans expect during the concert, and Lee Teuk said that (summarizing what he said) ELF will surely have fun as they will show their singing and dancing skills and there will be this part that they will dress like girls (the Chu~ part).

The conference was a success all in all! It felt like they are not idols, the feeling that you think you are so close to them.

Since this is my post i would like to grab the opportunity to thank Kacey, admin of Dailykpopnews, for helping us to make it through the press conference and most especially to Ms. Happee Sy for giving us the chance to participate on the said event and also for giving us the press con passes.

Here are some of the pictures from the press conference:

Show Lo Eats 50 Buns And Makes $5 Million

This year, in January, Vic Chou took over after Show Lo endorsed Rejoice Shampoo, and because of this, the two were rumored to be on bad terms But in a short 2 months, Show Lo took over Vic Chou's endorsement of Family Mart. It's said that the endorsement was for $5 million, which was $2 million more than Vic Chou.

"Love for Eating" Makes Deep Impression ; Survey of High Popularity

According to reports, Show Lo is endorsing bread from Family Mart, because Family Mart had surveyed, and he had the highest popularity, and on top of that, news had reported that he liked eating red bean buns/breads, so his "love for eating" image made a deep impression. Usually when celebrities film commercial for food, lots of them would want to throw up after eating so much of the same product over and over again, so they won't actually eat/swallow it. But Show really ate them, every time the director said, "One more time," he'd run to get a bun to eat. For the entire day, he ate about 50 of them, and happily exclaimed, "So awesome!"

Unable To Eat ; Anticipates Eating Ice Cream

On May 15, 16, Show will be holding 3 of his "Wu Fa Wu Tian" concerts at Taipei Arena. Afraid that he'd get fat, his company had given him a "No Snacking" rule. Because this time it was for an endorsement, he can openly eat. Tomorrow he will be going to Shanghai for an ice cream endorsement press conference, so he's anticipating to eat the ice cream. As for the sayings of replacing Vic Zai Zai, Show's manager Howard Chiang said, "Xiao Zhu is endorsing the bun/breads, Zaizai is endorsing the oden/dengaku. They're endorsing different products, no one replaced anyone."

11 Endorsements, Revenue Over $100 Million

Xiao Zhu is the commercial "$100 Million" man ("Yi Ge" = "first brother" = main guy, they punned it with "Yi" = $100 million). Currently he has chips, jeans, sanitary pads, cola, etc...11 endorsements. One of his endorsements is about $8 million, so his total revenue from ads is over $100 million. He's currently secretly practicing and organizing for his "Dance of Life." Because the title of "Dance King" has given him too much pressure, he thought up the idea of a 2 Minute dance solo, and because it uses up a lot of strength/energy, so he says that this is, "Dancing with my life." And for "Jing Wu Men (Dance Gate)," which he did the chair dance for his previous concert, he'll be changing it to a fan dance. He'll soon be closing himself off for dance practice and training, hoping to build up more cut muscles

Aaron Kwok And Zhang Ziyi To Play Aids Couple In 'The Era Of Magic'

Zhang Ziyi and Hong Kong actor Aaron Kwok will play a couple suffering from AIDS in director Gu Changwei's first-ever feature film tackling the issue, entitled "The Era of Magic."

Aaron Kwok was spotted on the set in Beijing Tuesday with a bearded and weary look, the Beijing News reports.

The film, adapted from a novel, tells a tragic love story between two AIDS-afflicted lovers. Kwok plays a primary school teacher who is sent from the city to teach in the countryside, but contracts AIDS and develops a crush on Zhang Ziyi's character, also an AIDS patient.

Director Gu Changwei insists Zhang Ziyi as the right actress for the lead, despite her recent embroilment in a slew of scandals about her personal life and alleged donation fraud.

Gu thinks the internationally famous Zhang will ensure a box office cache for the upcoming film.

Reportedly, award-winning actress Jiang Wenli, wife of director Gu, was cast in a supporting role.

Other big names joining the cast for very little pay include Pu Cunxin, Cai Guoqing, Li Xuejian and Li Danyang - all ambassadors of an anti-AIDS public campaign, the paper says, citing unnamed sources.

Wonder Girls Top Taiwan And Hong Kong's Music Charts

After becoming the first Korean artist/group to make it onto the Billboard Charts with their hit "Nobody", the Wonder Girls are showing no signs of slowing down by dominating the music charts in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

After releasing their "Taiwan Special" album in Taiwan last February 10th, they quickly shot to number one on several of the major online and offline music charts such as G-Music, E-Momo Music Channel, Chinese Telecom emomo Charts, etc. It was announced that they even took the top spot on the major KK Box chart this week!

The Wondergirls have sold 25,000 copies of their album in less than two months time. To put that into perspective, the record number of albums being sold by a foreign Asian artist in Taiwan or Hong Kong during a short amount of time stands at 30,000 albums.

A JYP Enteratinment source commented that on top of "Nobody" doing so well in Taiwan, the girls' "Hong Kong Special" album is also being received favorably in Hong Kong. He added that "Nobody's" popularity is growing by the day.

The super girl team has expressed their gratitude in garnering such a great response for their song in not only Korea, but America, Southeast Asia...and now Taiwan and Hong Kong.

The Wondergirls returned to Korea on March 26th, and are currently working on their latest album which is slated to be released in the U.S. sometime in May.

According to AKP, it's just a rumour for now since YG or SM hasn't released an announcement about it. But the site looks legit. What do you think? Will try to get more info on this :)

PS: This isn't also surprising considering how Taeyang's Wedding Dress once ranked #5 on a Dutch radio station.

PS2: I looked at the website and Big Bang's Lollipop 2 is #1 on their charts. XAMFM is an Asian radio station and they also feature Jpop artists.
