[Rumor Mill] Off the Record


I've been noticing more media outlets putting out tabloid type articles, such as this 'Off the Record' series by reporters over at Everyday Economy. Another popular one is 'Whisper Gossip' by Daily Sports, a couple of which you've seen before on this blog.

As you've probably noticed with my last Rumor Mill, netizens aren't usually on the hunt to identify who's who unless it becomes a big enough issue where it's imperative (like crime) so most of these will be left anonymous for entertainment reading.

-

● Composer 'A' is widely known as a producer of mega hits. Although he hasn't had a girlfriend in a long time, he's received a lot of love from the public for his smooth, romantic songs. It turns out that he hasn't had a girlfriend because he actually has a boyfriend. He hasn't come out of the closet yet but 'A' is currently living with his boyfriend. Those closest to him were said to have been surprised when they found out because you couldn't tell at all that he was gay.

● Actor 'B' who recently broke up with his girlfriend made an appearance at a public event ahead of the release of his movie. As it is his first public appearance following the break up, reporters were highly interested in what led to the demise of their relationship. The production company asked such questions to not be asked not for reasons of respecting his privacy, but because they know that he's an absolute monster when it comes to attitude. The production company went around asking reporters to turn a blind eye because "we all know how bad of an attitude B has." Reporters had no option but to comply.

● With Psy's 'Gangnam Style' becoming a hit all over America, there's also one other person who's been receiving the spotlight. It's none other than Park Jin Young of JYP Entertainment, who was one of the first to make an American advancement. Recently, it was revealed that Park Jin Young left for Israel to gain religious inspiration. They say he was highly stressed out from all of the comparisons he received to Psy.

● Actress 'A' has been on the rise for being much loved for her bright and cheerful personality in her latest drama. In a recent interview with her, however, we weren't able to see any of that. What sat before us was a cold, arrogant woman. Her personality was only about 30% in resemblance to her drama character. Because of her cold first impression, she said that she wasn't that popular in college. Still, her popularity remains explosive and she's receiving a lot of CF and drama love calls.

● You can often hear of news of relationships between company CEOs and their artists. Although there are a few relationships already revealed, there are a lot more underneath the cover. People are probably already familiar with 'B' and her CEO. B has been hit on numerous times since her debut, but stayed loyal to her relationship with her CEO. They say that once she finishes up her solo promotions, they'll get wed.

● The company of leader 'C' from a popular male idol group is said to be having some trouble photoshopping his flab. The group is known for their long, long years of staying together and is considered the role models for many young idol groups today. Unfortunately, they haven't been able to beat time, as although 'C' was once known for his chiseled body, he's gained a bit of weight. Because all of his pictures must now be photoshopped, their company is late on sending out official press photos, which means reporters are also late on reporting the news... Although his stomach flab is causing some obstacles, it makes us love him even more.

● The industry's representative pair of best friends 'C' and 'D' have been revealed to be maintaining a shaky friendship. It's true that C's career benefited a lot from D, but lately people have been saying that they rarely see the two together anymore. According to one broadcast official, their relationship has been on the rocks since filming a show together earlier this year. C's popularity has also been shooting up, leading to speculations of D possibly being jealous and upset.

● Idol 'E' of a popular idol group currently busily promoting in both Korea and Japan was said to have been rushed to the hospital during an interview. The problem turned out to be a boil on his butt. This idol group came under fire at the beginning of their debut for having embarrassing skills to even be considered a band, but lately they've been writing their own music and showing that they truly are enjoying and loving their music.

  2. " The company of leader 'C' from a popular male idol group" this line alone screams Shinhwa's Eric since they're the only idol group that have different agencies......

    "The industry's representative pair of best friends 'C' and 'D' have been revealed to be maintaining a shaky friendship." This is Kim Ji Suk & Lee Jin Wook but i don't know who's C or D respectively.....

  3. "but lately they've been writing their own" CNBLUE has been composing since debut so i don't think it's them plus their debut was great so it can't be them...the only one who has given an interview lately it's Jonghyun and i don't think that's the case....maybe ZEA or Boyfriend :/

    1. 5) Agree, it must be her...the only one who comea to my mind.
      8) if it's CNBLUE only Jonghyun's name comes to my mind...his the only one giving interviews lately. I remember seeing Minhyuk mag interviews but that was 1 month ago.

  10. It's clearly not Song Jihyo as her relationship was already revealed, while the blind item talks of a secret relationship.
    Lee Sooman is married and has children who are studying in LA (where he lives).

  11. +Adding on to Anon5:32
    Also....SME is no longer the CEO of SME. He is the highest shareholder though and people keep forgetting that.

  14. lol, all the comments here just show how limited our knowledge of the k entertainment industry is. i bet if the names were revealed, most of the ppl weren't known to us.

  15. "Lee Sooman is married and has children who are studying in LA (where he lives)."

    But Sooman isn't the CEO of SM so...?

    ReplyDelete

    1. No..'she said that she wasn't popular in college'..Sulli is still in High school and the same goes for Suzy...I think it's Kim Ha Neul they're talking about.

      Delete
  19. Actress A= maybe could be SUZY or this girl from Apink (sorry i dont follow her or the group).

  20. "The company of leader 'C' from a popular male idol group is said to be having some trouble photoshopping his flab. The group is known for their long, long years of staying together and is considered the role models for many young idol groups today."

    Shinhwa?

    Or maybe TVXQ Yunho? Do newer idol groups look up to them and consider them role models?

    ReplyDelete
  21. I LOVE blind items (even though most are prob not true). They are fun to guess and it's fun to read other people's guesses. More posts like this please. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Could Actress A be Kim Ha Neul?

    ReplyDelete
  23. @ Anonymous September 29, 2012 5:32 PM

    The blind item does not speak of a relationship that has not been revealed. It says that a lot of people are familiar with their relationship already.

  24. lol dont know abt the rest but im pretty sure the last one is Ftisland's Hongki. Not long ago he kept twitting abt his butt being "hurt", the rest of the description fits ftisland also. SOLVED *lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cannot be suzy or eunji both didn't even go to colegge yet how they can be considered not popular on college if they didn't go yet ? lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. The CEO wedding one made me think of Song Ji Hyo!

    ReplyDelete
  27. "Shinhwa?

    Or maybe TVXQ Yunho? Do newer idol groups look up to them and consider them role models?"

    I thought maybe Yunho at first too, but the whole "The group is known for their long, long years of staying together" doesn't apply to TVXQ, so I'm pretty sure it's Eric from Shinhwa.

  28. boooo what fun is it if we don't even have names? and i don't wanna guess either...cause i'm sure k-netizens have a better idea than we do. :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. ^ It's fun because it has no name for me. Haha.

    Composer A --> I have no idea. For those who guess Shinsadong Tiger, please read again the description. It's clearly a ballad song writer.

    Actor B --> Pretty sure it's Ryu Seung Beom.

    Actress A --> Jin Sae Yeon? I think it's not Suzy or Eunji, they'd be addressed as "idol" not "actress".

    Female Celebrity B --> Definitely NOT Song Ji Hyo. Idk, she's just moved her agency and from the way it's written, it seems like an old relationship and something undercover? I think it's Gahee and CEO Han Seung Soo? Lol, idk.

    Leader C --> Eric, obviously ^^

    Bestfriend C and D --> They're definitely Kim Ji Seok and Lee Jin Wook. Kim Ji Seok is D, I think?

    Idol E --> Someone in FTISLAND I guess... CNBLUE didn't really draw much criticsm in their early career, didn't they? Both groups are actively promoting in Korea and Japan though.

  30. Composer A? Yoo Young Jin, mega hit producer from SM?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Man there's only like 10% of the anons here who know anything beyond what AKP or other english site put out. So obvious from the limited and sometimes even dumb guesses to the questions.

    LSM isn't the CEO of SM, just the biggest shareholder.

    Tiger JK has a wife. Tasha/Yoon Mirae

    Sulli is in Highschool and so is A Pink Eunji if I'm not mistaken.

    Song Ji Hyo's relationship is already public. What's the point of making it a blind item.

    - from the clues its a ballad song composer. YYJ isn't exactly known for those.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think Composer A is Bang Shihyuk, who's written ballads for 2AM, Baek Jiyoung, and 8eight iirc

    ReplyDelete
  33. Actor 'B' --> Isn't that Jang Geun Seuk? I read somewhere (might be on this site itself) that he's SUPER arrogant and has a really bad attitude.

    ReplyDelete
  34. ^tsk. please read the description again... he just broke up, he's going to have a movie, jang geunsuk doesn't do that two.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Anonymous September 30, 2012 12:37 PM'

    I did get ~those vibes~ from Bang Shi Hyuk, but the BI says people love this composer, and I think a lot of people hated him for being a terrible judge on that MBC audition show...

    I hope netizenbuzz will post the new article about a 44-year-old comedian (last name Kim) who was just arrested for hitting his wife in their car after an argument. The wife and daughter called police, so it's not Kim Gura..
