U-KISS’ Hoon and Jewelry’s Yewon win ‘Wrestling Idol’

Posted Image
U-KISS‘ Hoon and Jewelry‘s Yewon were titled the champions in MBC‘s Chuseok special, ‘Wrestling Idol‘.

Even though Yewon is small, she managed to defeat KARA‘s ‘Giant Baby’ Jiyoung and After School‘s Gaeun to win 1st overall for the female title. After she won, she said, “Jewelry’s album hasn’t come out for a year, but I’m working this hard to get an album out. CEO! Listen well!” She also wrote on her Twitter, “Everyone, I won 1st in wrestling. I gritted my teeth and did it for Jewelry’s comeback.”

Hoon managed an even larger feat by defeating an actual wrestling champion, Lee Man Gi. In a set of completely unexpected events, Hoon managed to push the wrestling giant backward to win. After his win against Lee Man Gi, Hoon went on to defeat INFINITE‘s Woohyun by bringing him to his knees, winning [the] title of the Wrestling king.

Important Notice

Calling all Toronto Kiss Me!

Alright, please ignore the last post, I assumed it was going to be the same thing in every city/country. Apparently, we only need to represent the country in one city (though I feel it is highly unfair to fans in other parts of such a large country but rules are rules).

Does anyone have any suggestion for an event? We can’t do Karaoke or art activities because Sydney is doing that. We have to choose one activity, below are few options, please respond quickly so we can finalize it.

Date: Sunday, May 13th
Time: If we choose light show it will take place at 7pm, everything else will be at 12pm
Place: Christie Pit (Downtown Koreatown)

– U-Kiss Flashmob
– U-Kiss light show (we can create U-Kiss’ name wearing their official colour)
– Promoting U-Kiss at one of the Koreatowns in Toronto 
– Creating a message book for U-Kiss (we can take pictures and film the process) 

Also, does everyone still want to grab lunch since apparently Sydney is not filming that part so we can do it. As in, order U-Kiss favourite Korean food and have a feast. What do you think? We can make this one of the options as well.

Any other ideas? 

Please RSVP by April 20th! Since I need to know how many people we have to be planning for.

Message me on tumblr (sumaiyaa), tweet me @sumaiyaAh or email me at sumaiya_peace4@hotmail.com

We need to come up with an idea but the end of this week!

Oricon Special Interview with U-Kiss

It’s been about 2 months since your debut, have you adapted to Japan?

[Everyone] Not at all!
[Hoon] Since we’re too busy, we can’t go play around.
[Soohyun] But I went to Don Quijote. There are many things there, so it’s interesting.
[Kevin] It’s nice that shops are open for 24 hours. I buy food often.
[Hoon] There are things for lifestyle also. Things like pillows and hangers.
[Soohyun] And rollers (laughs). I’m just playing around, for everyone to have fun.
―But is it bad when the fans see you?
[Hoon] No, (the fans) have not found us yet.
―So then, this Spring which fashion do you want to try?
[Hoon] I’ll be naked from the waist up (laughs)! I’ll show my muscles.
[Hoon] I’m lying (laughs). In spring we want to be warm, and in summer we want to be cool. The colors black and white together are chic. I also want to try fancy designed silver accessories.
[Kiseop] I also like monotone. I want to dress in jeans and a white shirt with a jacket, to give it a simple feel. The point is to find leather work boots that will suit you.
[Kevin] I’m similar to Kiseop, I like to dress in T-shirts and jeans. Since it’s spring, I want to wear a nice blue shirt, and I want to wear a fedora or cute straw hats.
[Soohyun] I also think a hat is one of the items you’d want to wear in the spring. I think you could match a trench coat and skinny jeans for a cool appearance.
[Eli] I like simple clothes like jeans with a T-shirt, and you can accent with a cool belt and accessories. More recently, I want a silver metal watch.
[AJ] I’m addicted to ONE PIECE, so I want to dress like Luffy. For the whole spring, blue toned thin and long shirts, short pants, and slip-on (shoes) with no socks. I want to wear a straw hat to feel cool.
―Thank you. “Forbidden Love” is your new song. What was your impression when you first heard it?
[Soohyun] I think it’s a strong and sexy image. The dance and facial expressions have a sexy appeal to them.
[Eli] During the chorus part you wave your body, it’s a distinctive dance.
[Kiseop] Since it was the first time I did a sexy dance, I was embarrassed at first.
[Dongho] It was fun simply because of the fast beat and dance. The lyrics included a lot of nuance and fresh content, once you knew (the lyrics), didn’t the meaning become more interesting?
―The lyrics of “Forbidden Love” have shocking content. Would you desire such a romance?
[Soohyun] The song is cool, but actually, since this kind of love is popular, it’s okay.
[Hoon] But there’s some interest in it…… isn’t there a thrill?
[Eli] No, at first that love is thrilling, but I think over time it becomes painful. Well after all, normal love is the best kind of love.
―Among the members, who’s dangerous to fall in love with?
[Hoon] I think Kevin.
[AJ] I also think Kevin.
[Hoon] Because he’s very pure, all the girls would like him.
[Kevin] I also think so. But if she’s a bad girl, it’s not good. (laughs).
[Hoon] Soohyun is also dangerous. Because he’s a strong man, he’ll riskily pour out his powerful affections.
[Soohyun] Embarrassing! I don’t do that (laughs).
― The new song is released at the same time as the 1st album. What are the contents?
[Soohyun] This time our theme is to appeal with diverse music. Our debut song “Tick Tack” and now “Forbidden Love” show our strong and sexy side, while other songs show a gentle yet manly romanticist side. Other than dance, there are also vocal songs, so I think that people can enjoy a variety of our work.
―Do you have a favorite song in particular that you’d recommend?
[Kiseop] The album’s title song, “A Shared Dream”. I really like ballads, and the song along with the dance will give you a relaxed feeling.
[Hoon] Also for this song’s music video, Kevin dove into water.
[Kevin] That shot was hard! I was underwater from 3 o’clock in the morning through most of the day.
[Eli] I recommend “Show Me Your Smile”. Because it’s a very bright and fun song, people who are listening together will liven up. I want to sing it at a concert soon.
―You’ve also recorded Japanese versions of some of your Korean songs. Is it good in Japanese? Is there something good within the Japanese (of the song)?
[Soohyun] The Korean song is a lot more strong and aggressive, but the Japanese suits it as well. Japanese has a strong pronunciation and a lot of accent for each word, and the melody fits the beat. Although it’s easier to sing in Korean, to properly understand the meaning in Japanese, we put emotion into our singing. By all means, I want the Japanese fans to listen to the Japanese version.
[Kiseop] This time, I want not only the strong beats to be heard, but also the ballads on the album to show the soft and gentle side of U-KISS.
―By the way, everyone’s personal strength is being strong? Being friendly?
[Hoon] (We) have either of those but…… anyway, everyone is genuine?
[Soohyun] The members are really rambunctious with each other. Our presence with each other is good (laughs).

Hoon reveals a secret about Ukiss member

Hoon :This member, when sleeping, is a bit strange. He gets up alone, walks around alone.

Shindong : Oh he’s a sleepwalker!

Hoon : Yes he is! He’s sleeping in another member’s room, then the next moment he is in mine. But I think this member doesn’t really know it, he hasn’t realized it yet [looking at Soohyun next to him]

Shindong & Gyuri : Soohyun why are you like that ?

Others : *laughs* -busted I may say-

Soohyun : Actually, I don’t know myself. When I woke up at morning, I found myself in Hoon’s room, another day I would be in AJ’s room.
