It was very windy and I felt shivering. So I left the venue of concert as soon as the first part of concert finished. I'm exhausted now. I think I got a cold. Unfortunately my camera didn't work so I gave up to bring it. Come on OLYMPUS!!! I just took only a few photos with my mobile phone.

Many TripleS are singing SS501's songs to cheer for our boys while waiting for starting the concert. It was very fun and exciting.

This is the moment what I've been waiting for!!!!!
Sorry for photo shaking. I got crazy when they came out.
Frankly speaking, I didn't expect they would appear so soon.
It was quite earlier than I thought.
Anyway It was wonderful to listen their song with many TripleS.
Their new song "Let me be the one" is fabulous, fascinating, magnificent, awesome, astonishing &...what else? hum... absolutly fantastic!!!!
I really really love their new song "Let me be the one"!!!
I'm sure you'll be mesmerized by that song when you hear it.

Oh, I forgot to mention this.
Hyun Joong said to fans "We are very sorry for album delay." and all TripleS at concert shouted out "It's OK! It's OK!".
Also I've heard our boys cried after their performance cause they felt sorry for album delay. Don't cry my boys! It's not your fault. Don't forget you are always THE BEST.
You are one and only for us.

The fans felt the pain of the leader as well as the sacrifice the group had to make and cheered on their favorite idol group. SS501 had to delay the release of their album because Kim Hyun Joong had to rest for 2 weeks, they cannot leave him out.

Fans were touched that even though Kim Hyun Joong was in pain during the performance, he still gave his best and SS501 performed an emotional ballad for their fans since it has been month's since they were able to meet up with their fans.

Quintet male group SS501's leader KimHyunJoong went on stage along with his injuries
and performed to their ballad track.

SS501 sang a total of 2 songs on the stage of '2010 I love Korea, Dream Concert' at 8.40pm at Seoul Mapo-gu, Sangam Worldcup Gymnasium Stadium, and the 2 songs are already-existing song 'One Only Day' and a ballad track from their new and upcoming album "Let Me Be the One". All of them wore black-toned outfits and stood alongside one another and performed to their ballad tracks in a surrounding of serenity.

After finishing 'Only One Day', SS501's HyunJoong stepped out to talk, "It's been some time. Though we were originally supposed to perform to our title track from our new album for today, but because of inevitable circumstances, we had to pushback our plans for comeback. We want to say sorry to our fans", "However, beginning from next month 4th onwards, we will be starting our activities with new song". Right after which, fans then responded with "It's alright!" deafeningly, hence giving comfort to them.

UPDATE: I will keep updating this post with more photos from the news portals.

Some said that the boys' cried or were teary-eyed after their performance. Who wouldn't? Seeing the sea of green and the hearing the very loud chants of the TripleS, don't you think that it is pretty much understandable that they would get a bit emotional at this trying times?

Oh! And one non-TS tweeting away live updates at the concert have very good things to say about the boys' performance.

Would you buy from the store if you see the CEO's photo plastered on it? Yes, I would. This simply shows how Jung Min believes in the products that he is selling and how proud he is of this company.

Do you remember that post last 18th of May when Jung Min went to a pet shop to buy Royal Avenue's mascot? Yes, he wanted to buy a rabbit but since they were there too early and the store is still close, he wasn't able to buy one. Well, the second time was a charm and he managed to purchase not just one but RABBITS. Imagine that... rabbits... give 3 or 4 months and there'd be more hopping rabbits in Royal Avenue.

Voices from SS501's Hearts: Please Get Well Soon, President

Of late, many rumors centering around the issue of SS501's contracts have been circulating. Their existing exclusive contract will run till early June, and there has been much hearsay about whether they will disband or sign with other agencies, etc etc etc. However, no one can shed light on the final answer with certainty, not even SS501 themselves. It is rumored that they are all waiting for the recovery of the agency's president, so it is still uncertain about the five members' coming or going.

President Lee from DSP, the agency that sS501 is under, is currently still recovering from his operation in April when he had suffered from hemorrage. Lee's condition has resulted in a huge vacuum in the operations of the agency, things are at a stalemate. As such, DSP has been unable to confirm anything about SS501's contracts prior to the expiry of the existing contracts on 7th June. Many other major companies are vying for Kim Hyun Joong to join them, so they have initiated contacts (with SS501) to discuss about their contracts. Thus there are new topics and rumors in the showbiz circuit everyday.

Amidst all this, it is rumored that SS501's first choice (of their subsequent contracts) is to sign on with the currently bedridden Lee. No matter if one looks at the situation from the sentimental or logical angle, it appears to be appropriate that President Lee be given the first right of refusal. Currently, they are all waiting for President Lee to recover so that they can discuss in detail about whether they are staying or leaving (DSP). Info about this development has been recently obtained after speaking at length and in great depth with the SS501 members.

This related party has said on 19th, "Truth be told, nothing is concrete or firm right now. These few boys feel that it's only right that they give priority to the president when it comes to their future; after all, he was the one who had groomed them." He further revealed that, "The rumors circulating now are not just about the future movements of the group, there're also rumors about the members' solo careers, actually the members all feel extremely burdened."

According to this related party, SS501 has adopted the stance that they will release their album on 28th as planned, and will concentrate on the promotional activities for the album, and meanwhile, awaiting for President Lee to recover. Talk has it President Lee who has previously in a coma for almost two months is now slowly recovering.

Following the release of their new album, SS501 will have their official comeback on 4th June. As for President Lee who is now struggling with his health issues, not only was he the force behind SS501 propelling them to the peak, he is also an unfluential producer in the kpop industry.

Group SS501 whose full contract will end in June have been involved in various rumours like disbanding, transferring to another company etc, but until their agency's CEO recovers from his condition, they will not be discussing anything of it.

SS501's agency company DSP Media's representative CEO Lee Ho Yeon underwent surgery in April due to hemorrhage and is currently in midst of recovery. With his situation now, the company is currently in a state of emptiness (literally), and what's with SS501 full contract expiring on June 7 and member KimHyunJoong already getting exploited by many huge agency companies one by one, thus igniting all kinds of guesses in the entertainment world.

To this, the involved party SS501 chose to show loyalty and courtesy till the end with regards to their CEO still lying in his bed and recovering. After their CEO improves with his condition, only then will they then discuss further about this directly with both parties.

This was revealed by a close personnel who recently held a long talk with SS501 members. This personnel said on the 19th, "Obviously we haven't had decided for anything yet up until now", "If we were to talk about this now, the members felt it wasn't reasonable to do it at such a time when their CEO of the company who raised them up is in such astate, and they are truly concerned about that".

He added, "Rumours revolving around each member's moves including the group itself has been becoming a huge burden", revealing how the members feel too.

If according to what this personnel has said, SS501 will be focusing on their promotional activities for new album that's to be released on 28th, and will be patiently waiting for CEO's recovery from his bed back up again.

SS501 will be having their full-scale comeback beginning June 4th with new album. Also they will be performing on the 22nd (Saturday) at Seoul Sangam-dong Worldcup Stadium for 2010 Dream Concert.

Hello. This is DSP Media.

Group SS501 who has received much love through mini album 'Rebirth' released
last September with songs like "Love Like This", "Wasteland", "Only One Day"
will be having their comeback in the music world soon with brand new album "DESTINATION".

After successfully wrapping up their asia tour in the first half of the year,
SS501 who took 3 months to prepare for their new album
have been busily preparing for their comeback stages to perform with their new songs.

This album which has been ongoing as a 'world project' has had released some of its
album jacket pictorials which had been the talk of everyone since the beginning it
was released. With numerous Golden Discs holder from US, Steven Lee, who was also
involved in the previous [Rebirth] album production participating in this time round's
album, we could expect a universal album from Korea-Europe-US with the many
world-acclaimed musicians' involvement.

All the songs in this album will be accompanied by piano background arrangement,
and will minimize all possibilities of even more prevalence of the same electronic
genre in the music scene as of present. The beautiful melody of musical instruments
along with only SS501's pleasantly emotional voice will be seen in their upcoming new album
as they return to the scene this end-month.
Especially in the mixing of songs, it was done by US Pop star Ne-yo and Rihanna's
mix engineer producer Kevin KD Davis who's been accoladed with several Grammy awards,
as well as another producer Ken Lewis who's had achieved more than 50 golden discs,
thus increasing by another notch of this world-acknowledged audio album.

Title song has been chosen as 'Love Ya', for which its producer is none another than
Steven Lee, this song will be accompanied by harmonious orchestra band
along with piano background arrangement, you could feel the powerful vocals
of SS501 and their emotions injected into the impactful song praised to be
lined up as a large-scaled performance. US singer John Legend and Kayne West's engineer
producer Ken Lewis who's had
received the Grammy Awards before has personally
participated in the mixing of this song, thus yet again upgrading the quality and anticipation
of this album by another notch.

The first track 'Let me be the one' is a full R&B song composed by Andre Mieux, Steven Lee and
Sean Alexander who was also in charge of producing SS501's Love Like This,
it is a song that's able to further flaunt SS501's matured vocals. Mixing is done by Kevin Davis
who's produced many famous hits like Ne-yo's "So Sick", "Closer", "Because of you",
as well as the current Number 1 on BIllboard Chart -- Rihanna's "Rude Boy". In addition,
hot dance track "Crazy 4 U" which was already revealed previously during their Persona
Asia Tour and collated high popularity has also received invitations from fans
to be included into this album this time since it failed to in its last album (Rebirth).

The final track of their album is a song titled "Until Forever", all productions for this song
was done fully in England, in specific to be in Germany's Frankfurt,
this is a strong and influential European powered pop track finished on a huge production
scale, where its lyrics were written by SS501 member Heo YoungSaeng himself personally,
hence attracting attention.

Ss501's new album will be released on 27th May,
and is scheduled to have their first comeback stage through 4th June's KBS2-TV Music Bank~

More detailed information of their comeback schedule will be uploaded in the
Schedule-Room afterwards at a later date~

P.S) SS501 [Destination] Special Edition will begin its advanced preordering
through Yes24 on 24th May, 12:00 am, this shall be a possible chance for you to participate
in their fansign session.

Concrete information to their fansign session will be revealed around 24th May morning!!

Thank you.
