No doubt, I've bought a lipstick which is my first lipstick in my entire life, just because of them!! They are Tae Kyung and Minam(You're Beautiful)!! I love them so much! Do see the video~^^

OMO! The kiss is so seductive. rfrf

Basically, the skincare and cleanser that I'm using now are Korean products, which are in different brands. Well, it's only a coincident actually. This is not showing that I support Korean product purposely just because I'm a K-pop addict. haha!

Hangeng's case: The Reasons Why He Sues SM


Reasons to HanKyung filing for contract terms disposition against SM Entertainment?
Hankyung, Super Junior’s only Chinese member in the 13 member group, has filed a lawsuit against the effects of his exclusive contract with the defendant SM Entertainment because of their unfair activity scheduling which has caused him gastritis and kidney illness. Through Hankyung’s legal representative, the lawsuit to terminate his exclusive contract was filed on the 21st with the Seoul District Court.

According to the litigation, Hankyung has not even been given a single rest day per week after debut. It has been said, “Because of the recent continuous overseas activities etc, it has almost been 2 years since he last rested, he has been rushing schedules (all this while).” “Due to contract obligations and heavy penalties, even during bad health, he was not to skip any scheduled activities.”
Hankyung’s side emphasized, “Because of these kind of health problems, (he) has continuously put forward requests to rest, but has always been rejected.” They added, “Except for when they started their perfomances in 2006, at other times, he had to stay in Korea.” “Through their manager, Hankyung requested from SM for leave to return to China to rest but he was rejected every single time.”

Hankyung’s side added, Hankyung’s exclusive contract terms
▶SM was definitely in a more superior position signing on unfair terms in the contract
▶The contract would span 13 years (starting from the release of their first album) ▶Incorporated excessive damages and in terms of the contract, if he voided it, he would be blocked (from other activities)
▶Allocation of rights and obligations in the contract were significantly off-balanced
▶SM had the right to request Hankyung to be in any activity
▶Profit-splitting rights and provisions were also off-balance, hence the intiation of the lawsuit against SM to terminate his exclusive contract.
On the other hand, after Hankyung intiated litigation, SM stated their stand that “for the sake of Super Junior and Hankyung, they are in talks to resolve the problem”.

The reason why Hankyung brought in the lawsuit against SM

These are 6 unfair things from Hankyung’s exclusive contract with SM which are stated by Hankyung’s side (not sure from his lawyer or his representative)

1. The contract has many provisiosn which are in SM’s favor.
When the first contract was signed (January 2003) Hankyung was 18 then (underage) and being a Chinese person, he didnt know everything about Korean showbiz so SM had given him a contract with the content that SM suggested. Not only that, but those side agreements with SM after then (on Febuary 2007 and December 2007) also were only from SM (aka Hankyung didnt have chance to suggest the provisions which are in his favor)

2. The period of the exclusive contract is 13 years is too long. The first contract was signed stated that it will be ended 10 years after Super Junior’s 1st album but it has been extended to 13 years on the 2nd modified time. Super Junior’s 1st album was released in December 2005 so the contract will be ended in December 2018 and Hankyung will be 35 then. Moreover, if Hankyung gives up some activities because of his health or study, the contract’s period will be extended according to the situation so it might be 13 years on the paper but it could be longer in real life and this violated seriously to Hankyung’s civil right.

3. There is clause stated that Hankyung will have to pay SM a lot for breaking contract or creating damages toward the contract, thus this prevents Hankyung to cancel the contract or some agreements on the contract. If Hankyung wants to move to another company and continue his activities, he will have to pay SM threefold of the money that SM had invested to him and pay twofold for the loss of the remain time of his contract.

4. The amount between Hankyung’s rights and responsibilities that stated in the contract are not the same. Hankyung has to follow and attend all the schedule that SM give him, has to do/follow all SM’s orders/intrustions unconditionally but he doesnt have right to request his contract to be revised.

5. SM has forced Hankyung to do some activities that against his will.
At the training time, if Hankyung was late or absent or didnt fulfill his duty he would be fined 10,000won for the 1st time, 20,000won for the 2nd time. After debut, if he was late or absent from his schedule, he would have to pay for all the damage, if he cut the contact with SM more than 1 day according to the situation SM can cancel his contract. And if he doesnt fulfill his duty, according to the situation he could be fined 5,000,000won. According to the contract, Hankyung doesnt have any right to decide for his schedule, he has to follow SM’s words and only attend the events/performances that SM’s manager designed for him. Hankyung even had been forced to attend some activities because of SM’s order when he was ill.

6. The profit distribution and copyrights between SM and Hankyung.
During the contract period, all the copyright of albums and song will belong to SM. Although Hankyung wrote, composed, arranged the songs, they can be used by SM without his permission. About the profit, the album has to be sold more than 50,000 pieces so that Hankyung can receive 2% the profit. The digital sales has to be equal with the net profit so Hankyung can get 10% and the oversea income has to be equal with the net profit too so Hankyung can get 60%. About the oversea activities income, after SM deduct all the promotion activities’s expenses & fees, the remain money will be divided among the members.

Hangeng leaves SUPER JUNIOR ?!

Hankyung requests to terminate his contract

Looks like SM Entertainment just might lose another star... After the JaeChunSu trio turned their backs against their company in regards to their unfair contract, Hankyung (Hangeng) of Super Junior decided to follow their lead and attempt to opt out as well.

According to a related source in China, Hankyung filed a request at the Seoul Central District Court to make his contract with SM Entertainment null and void at noon on the 21st.

Hankyung, who is well-known as the only Chinese member in Super Junior, is popular amongst both the Asian youth and media. With his good reputation and talent, many speculated that the singer would go on to have a very successful solo career as well. However, rumor has it that the contract forbade Hankyung from pursuing a solo career, creating a rift that led to this contract termination request.

The press stated,
"No specific details have yet been released towards this termination request. However, it is likely the reason is because of the unfairness the contract holds in regards to Hankyung's personal development.

新浪娛樂訊 據韓國消息稱,亞洲超人氣組合Super Junior唯一中國籍成員韓庚,於今日正式向首爾中央地方法院請求判決與SM公司《專屬合同》無效。這是繼今年7月底東方神起三成員朴有天、金在中、金俊秀狀告SM公司並要求解約以來,SM收到的又一顆重磅炸彈。

Baby And Me

Due to my craziness over Jang Geun Suk now, I keep searching and watching his previous movies and video clips. And now, I just finished watching a Korean movie which is starring by him and a super cute baby- Mason Moon.
The movie is called as Baby And Me.

Not bad, it's quite interesting and the main factor that caught my attention of couse is the male lead, Jang Geun Suk. He is still as handsome as Hwang Tae Kyung. This movie is about a rich rebellious kid who suddenly finds himself alone one day because his parents ran off away from him. While he celebrates for his new found liberty, he finds a baby in his shopping cart. He goes to report him as a lost child, but then the letter inserted in the baby's carrier says he's the father. This movie shows how he embraced his responsibility as a father, and how he eventually changed his rebellious, carefree nature.

Lately Im so obsessed with Jang!!!
He is a great and talented actor, and his gorgeous smile can kill me away~! arghh.

Seriously, many friends of mine, including my sister and I myself, also can't stand of his hotness too. Awwwww~~ xD

Nah~! This is his Hwang Tae Kyung in You're Beautiful~! LOVE LOVE LOVE~~~

Trailer of Baby And Me

Some picture sharing here ^^

OMG the baby is sosososo CUTE and ADORABLE!!
