Plea to all SS501 Fans

Some of you might have already seen this appeal on some other SS501 sites. This was first posted by Korean fan Best501 on the site, appealing to overseas fans not to upload, repost & share the songs from the boys' new mini album. I share her sentiments that if you really are a fan, you would support your idol by buying their albums. This is a show of respect to the artist, musicians and composers who have worked hard to bring us the music of SS501. Do you want to commit intellectual property theft against your idol?

South Korean Idol Band SS501 will hold their first-ever concert in Taipei tonight. The five members have been practising their Mandarin, hoping to be even closer with their fans. In particular, member Park Jung Min will be performing the Chinese evergreen, Tian-Mi-Mi (甜蜜蜜) on-stage, and he also revealed that the Mandarin sentence he's most fluent in is "Mei-Tian-Dou-You-ng-ng-Ma?"

(happiebb: literally translates into 'Do you poo everyday?'
do note that the 'ng ng' here is a rather discreet way of saying 'poo'.... )

The Five Handsome Guys Joked about a Hawaiian Holiday

SS501's popularity in Taiwan is red-hot, their five albums and DVDs launched so far have surpassed the 50,000 copies. Due to this, Warner Music's president for the China market Sam Chen could not help but said smilingly during the press conference that the year-end bonus and staff holiday would depend on the boys.

After hearing this, the five members jokingly said, "So are we entitled to the staff holidays too? We want to go to Hawaii."

SS501 will be performing at the Taipei Arena tonight, and they made use of whatever time they had for final rehearsals. One of the members, Park Jung Min, has been practising the song Tian-Mi-Mi very diligently, and he even showed his prowess through a tongue twister.

Regarding how there were fans being pushed by the Korean security staff during the chaotic moments at the airport two days ago, they expressed that they hoped that the fans were safe and unhurt.

Kim Hyun Joong Lost Tremendous Weight;
But Thought He's Better Looking Now

Leader Kim Hyun Joong was down with the new flu virus H1N1 sometime back. He appeared to be somewhat lethargic during the press conference yesterday, his health was also brought up by the media as a cause for concern. He shared that he's fully recovered.

The weight loss is due to the hectic dance practices. However, he felt that the weight loss made him appear even better looking in front of the camera, so it was an unexpected 'gain'. As for why he was looking listless and tired, it's because he's an 'nocturnal animal'; he would come alive at night and become very energetic.

Keeping with their promise to hold a concert in Taiwan by year end, SS501 will be staging the Taiwan leg of their SS501 Asia Tour PERSONA 2009 concert at the Taipei Arena on 17th Oct (Sat).

The concert tickets are almost sold-out! Due to this, SS501 did not dare to take things lightly. For this trip, other than the few selected activities, they practically did not arrange for any other events or notices, and only focused on practising their dance, rehearsing all the way till midnight on their first night.

Sam Chen also specially paid a visit to the boys at the studio, and brought along XLB (xiao-long-bao, soup dumplings) that member Park Jung Min kept thinking about after the boys' last visit, as well as Japanese sushi, Hong Kong-style dim-sum (snacks) and bubble tea, in an effort to give them some encouragement. Park Jung Min, with the 'sweetest' mouth amongst the members, saw Sam Chen and the gifts he's brought (which included his favourite food), went up to Sam to give him a big, warm hug. The other SS501 members also said that with such sumptuous food for support, no matter how hard the rehearsals were, it's all worth it!

In the afternoon of SS501's second day in Taipei, they held a press conference at the Sherwood for their new album [REBIRTH] and also for the Taipei leg of their PERSONA concert.

SS501 officially penetrated the Taiwanese market from this year, and stirred up quite a storm. To-date, the five albums released by Warner Music who represents them here, have been warmly received by the Taiwanese fans. Album sales have gone five-platinum.

At the celebratory press conference, Warner Music's President for the China market, Sam Chen presented SS501 with the five gigantic platinum album awards. The gigantic platinum album required at least three people to lift it up, and all five members of SS501 were elated beyond words.

At the PERSONA concert this time, SS501 will re-create the contents of what they had previously performed in the Seoul concert; they also revealed that Park Jung Min will be singing the Chinese Song 「甜蜜蜜」 during the concert. He sang a part of the song at the press event, and his accurate Mandarin pronunciation surprised the media present.

During the press conference, Park Jung Min who appears to be rather good with his linguistic skills demonstrated tongue twisters in order to show his progress in the language. Lead vocals Heo Young Saeng also performed tongue twisters, and this too won the warm applause of all present. In addition, leader Kim Hyun Joong also did tongue twisters at the request of the media, and the effect brought on quite a few laughs.

This trip to Taiwan also brought the official announcement of the Korea-Taiwan simultaneous release of their brand-new mini album [REBIRTH] on 30th Oct.

Just a few days ago, the publicity shots for the new album jacket were released. The thick smoky makeup showed the boys' transformation into men, displaying sensuality and maturity, and immediately invited much excited discussion amongst netizens. In addition, they will also be performing a new single at the concert, allowing the Taiwanese fans a sneak preview.

In times of uncertainty, we are just waiting for this period and working hard for.
