In response, representatives of both Siwon and Kim Yoon Seo’s agencies have denied the rumors.
Super Junior‘s Donghae and Eunhyuk have announced that they’ll be releasing a special duet.
Boy groups Big Bang and Super Junior garnered a lot of international interest in 2011, having beat out international pop icon Britney Spears to achieve their titles as world stars.
First, Big Bang attended the 2011 MTV EMA‘s which were held in Belfast, Northern Ireland back in November.
The boys were nominated under the “World Wide Act Asia Pacific Nominees” category for the EMAs and won, advancing to the “Worldwide Act Nominees” category alongside famous international artists such as Abdelfattah Grini(Africa/India/Middle East), Lena (Europe), Restart (Latin America), and Britney Spears (North America)

Eunhyuk is reportedly good friends with the FIX members and he displayed his loyalty to them by making time out of his hectic schedule to film the video. The female lead was played by SBS Deep Rooted Tree‘s Jang Ji Eun.
In the photos which were released through a press release, Eunhyuk looks extremely nervous and stiff as Jang Ji Eun aggressively works toward him to lean in for a kiss. The photo further heightened expectations for the full-length MV.

We will continue to spread the Korea’s culture throughout the world… I also clicked on our music video 10 times. Whenever we’d go perform overseas, the clip would be uploaded onto YouTube right away. Seeing this, I felt how strong media’s power had become.”

In fact, this year will be his fifth year in being actively involved in several volunteering activities. He and his fans are especially active in the Seoul Dongjak Center for the Disabled.
One of his representatives explained, “Sungmin was still in high school when he debuted with Super Junior, thus he had a lot of young fans.

Years have flown by and Sungmin, as well as his fans, are all adults now and even now they are as active and dedicated as they were in the beginning.”
The representative continued, “Every year, around the holidays, Sungmin is donating food like ramen and rice to the Center.”

Super Junior‘s Yesung and Donghaemade fans melt with their latest photo.
On November 11th, Yesung tweeted, “Leaving good memories with little buddy. Everyone, good night?”
Yesung and Donghae are seen wearing suits, but their personal styles resulted in two very different looks. Donghae dressed down in a modern blazer with a white trim, while Yesung opted for a more traditional cut.
Netizens replied, “My heart…” and ”These are men who are impeccable in singing, dancing, and looks“.
All eyes and ears are focused on the ‘2011 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)’ that is scheduled to take place at the Indoor Stadium in Singapore on the 29th.
More than 2,240,000 votes came in this year through MAMA’s official homepage (www.2011mama.com), which is more than 10 times the number of votes that came in last year.
19% of the votes were from Korean fans, 11.2% of voters were Thai, 10.8% were Chinese, 8.6% were Japanese, and 2.4% of the votes came from Singapore. In total, more than 80% of all the votes were from oversea fans, which is 13% more compared to last year.
The competition is fierce for best male group dance performance, with Super Junior seizing 35.1% of all votes with “Mr. Simple“, and TVXQ earning 34.9% of all votes with “Why“.
The ‘2011 Melon Music Awards‘ have announced that they’ve enlisted Super Junior‘s Leeteuk, actress Park Shin Hye, and B2ST‘s Doojoon to be the hosts for this year’s ceremony.
The three were chosen because of their influence in spreading the Hallyu wave. Super Junior has been receiving a lot of love in Europe and Asia, while B2ST will be starting their concert tour in Southeast Asia in December. Meanwhile, Park Shin Hye was recently cast for a Taiwanese drama called ‘Whirlwind District Office 1‘.
A representative from the ’2011 Melon Music Awards’ stated, “More so than previous years, 2011′s Melon Music Awards will focus on being a music show and a professional awards show. We plan on showing a lot of impressive stages and performances. We’re looking forward to the awards attracting a global audience, as the hosts themselves attracted a global interest through the Hallyu wave.”
Previous ‘Melon Music Awards’ hosts included Jang Geun Suk for the first ceremony and Song Joong Ki for the second.
Hanteo, one of the top album sales monitoring charts in Korea, has released their ’2011 Singer Award’ rankings.
Super Junior clinched 1st place with an overwhelming lead over all the other groups this year (~322,000 copies sold). Second place went to Big Bang (~217,000), while TVXQ has seized the 3rd spot (~201,000). They were followed by Kim Hyun Joong (~200,000) and JYJ (~158,000) for 4th and 5th places, respectively.
As expected, idols dominated album sales this year due to their large, dedicated fan bases. In addition, the top 5 are all male idols, with Kim Hyun Joong being the only male solo artist out of the five.
This chart is scheduled to be updated until the end of this year. However, with less than two months left in the year, it’s not likely that the rankings will change (with the exception of TVXQ and Kim Hyun Joong who are currently neck-and-neck).

On November 5th, Y-STAR‘s ’Curious Things‘ conducted a street survey in which they asked ordinary people about the criteria of being an idol.
According to the survey results, the average age of idols came out to be 25 – indicating that people did not really see stars over the age of 25, as idols. Taking this into account, Y-STAR calculated the average age of various groups.
Groups such as SNSD, T-ara, and 2PM were found to have an average age of less than 25, while groups like Super Junior and Brown Eyed Girls had a higher average age.
With these results, it was concluded that Brown Eyed Girls and Super Junior should be not recognized as just ‘idols’, but rather as ‘adult idols’.
On November 6th, Super Junior member, Ryeowook uploaded 2 photos in light of their 6th anniversary via Twitter.
Along with the photos, the idol wrote, “It’s been 6 years since our debut. Through the love of so many people, I think we were able to create 6 years of memories~Thank you so much~I’m really thankful to each and every one of our members >< I really really love you guys~ ❤ Ryeowook“.
Fans congratulated the members for their hard work and rejoiced over the affectionate pictures uploaded by the idol. The white and black photo contains ten members posing together like true friends, while the bottom image shows 13 members from their early times.
Tweeters commented, “Happy 6th Anniversary!“, “This is making me cry T_T“, and “I wish all 13 were back together again“.

Super Junior’s Leeteuk appears on wife Kang So Ra‘s drama as an extra.
Leeteuk visited the set of wife Kang So Ra’s drama on the episode of MBC ‘We Got Married’ aired on the 5th.
Leeteuk brought beverages for the filming crews on the set, he put couple sticker photos on each bottle before distributing them to the crews. He even helped out the filming a little by appearing as a passerby in one of the scenes. It was an Oscar worthy performance, joke.
It wasn’t all happy and jolly though. Leeteuk seemed quite jealous of the actor Choi Min, starring opposite Kang So Ra in the drama and the tension was felt strongly when the two men shook hands for the first time. Leeteuk gave Choi Min their wedding invitation card to make him jealous and it was a very cute scene to watch.

He shared, “She was so thoughtful and considerate. I honestly, really liked her. She was the first person I liked after joining SM Entertainment.”
He further explained, “So, being a man, I told her exactly how I felt and told her that I wanted to date her. I thought because I had confessed my feelings for her, we were now an official couple. At least, thats what I thought… The next day I get to the office and people kept telling me that Dana had a boyfriend. I remember thinking to myself, ‘but I’m her boyfriend’… The management staff heard about what had happened, and they told me not to come to the office anymore. I had just started, and Dana was already preparing for her debut. I had to write five pages explaining my actions to the agency, promising to channel that drive and passion towards practicing to become the best.”
After he was done sharing his story, Dana surprised by his remarks, commented, “I didn’t know they told him to leave or that he had to write a five page letter of apology.”
On October 29th, Super Junior‘s Yesung shared a princely selca that showed off his handsome looks.

Netizens commented, “Is he filming something? His black jacket matches him so well”, “His beauty… no words”, and “Please continue to share pictures on your whereabouts!”
