SS501 Park JungMin is said to have signed up with Taiwan Sony Music.

An official revealed, “Park JungMin has signed an exclusive contract with Taiwan Sony Music. This was done before Kim HyunJoong moved to Bae YongJoon’s agency Key East.”

It seems that currently Park JungMin is looking at activities in the Chinese entertainment market with the move to sign with Taiwan Sony Music. With news that Park JungMin and Kim HyunJoong will be doing their solo activities, there are great interests as to the future plans for the rest of the members Heo YongSaeng, Kim KyuJong and Kim HyungJoon.

Meanwhile, on SBS Music High radio show, Kim HyungJoon who is the DJ on the show said, “In the future, I will continue DJ-ing”.

[02/07] Kim Hyung Jun finally bids Park Yong Ha Goodbye

Pls credit the sources and all translators/sites when reposting. Do not re-edit or hotlink the graphics.

Our Hyung Jun is really taking his sunbae's passing too hard. His body is taking the toll. He's been at the wake everyday and on the last day (02 Jul) he too was around to pay Park Yong Ha his final respects. Maknae looked so totally heartbroken. I believe that Hyung Jun is entitled to some privacy too at this time of his grief, so I decided not to post unflattering photos. If you want to see the entire collection, go here.

This isn't really groundbreaking news but something to lift the spirits of TripleS up. No matter what the outcome may be, I do hope we will respect the decisions our boys will make. Let us support then in their future undertakings be it their solo or group activities.

As many of you know by now, SS501 leader Kim Hyun Joong officially left DSP Entertainment to join KeyEast Entertainment, leaving some doubt into the future of SS501. However, it seems KeyEast would like to see SS501 continue as the company stated that they would support any plans for the group’s future activities, whatever they may be.

Currently, the other SS501 members are free agents as their contracts with DSP Entertainment have expired. There’s rumors that the group members are actively seeking to sign with a new management company. However, it’s in the groups best interest to continue as SS501. If the members were to sign to different agencies, they could still continue to operate their album activities as SS501. Legendary K-pop group Shinhwa have done just this with the individual members signed with different companies for their solo activities but coming together as Shinhwa as one for all group activities.

Hopefully SS501 continues to be together for a long time.

I really don't like posting sponsored photos, but wuri Leader looks cute in the first photo (kekeke). These were taken during an interview and I think pretty much the same time the official photos used by Keyeast for the announcement of his contract signing.

[01/07] Photos of Kyu Jong, Young Saeng and Hyung Jun at Park Yong Ha's Wake

Pls credit the sources and all translators/sites when reposting. Do not re-edit or hotlink the graphics.

UPDATE: Mianhe, I thought they went on 30th June, but it seemed that they went only today (01/Jul). Yesterday, Maknae went with his brother and today with Kyu and Saengie. I went through the photos again and compared. I mistook it as same day 'cause Hyung Jun wore the same suit; it was the undershirt that differs. Thanks for the tip at the comments. 

There were tips that actually Kyu Jong and Hyun Joong also went to Park Yong Ha's wake yesterday. The Kyu Jong tips was disputed as they said it was just another person who looks like Kyu. And tonight I saw a tip that Kyu and Saengie went. So I did a search in the news sites. Lookie here! Kyu Jong, Saengie and Hyung Jun actually went at the same time! As for Hyun Joong, they said he came right after Bae Yong Joon but no photos can be seen floating around.

Updates on Hyun Joong's activities at KE

Pls credit the sources and all translators/sites when reposting. Do not re-edit or hotlink the graphics.

Here's an update from my Unnie regarding wuri Hyun Joong and his current situation at Keyeast. I told somebody the other day what could be the main point that Leader chose Keyeast is the possibility that he is given more freedom. This is the brightest, happiest news we could ever hear at this point in time. So TripleS, remember what Leader said at that X-Concert? No matter what rumours you hear, you just have to believe in them. Believe that there will be a 50th anniversary for SS501. They may get to keep their band's name or have a rebirth under another but they will be 5 forever as 1.

the pink princess has tried to contact keyeast, and her 'cute new friend' from keyeast has shared that they've got lots of calls from that day and are still getting lots of calls now.
But he said they really can't explain everything about KHJ and related isues.
truth is most of the staff don't really know the details anyway.

he did mention that there's some 'trouble' with some fans
coz they're really worried and anxious as they really want the five to stay as SS501.
then he also told me it's undecided and unconfirmed now,
various parties are involved, and it's up to these parties to choose and decide.
he mentioned that the keyeast team will respect wuri hyun joong's choice.

he also said to check the keyeast homepage often
as wuri hyun joong's schedule and new (work) direction will be updated there.

hee, he also said the weather's so so hot in Seoul today ^^

SS501 Kim Hyun Joong, Kyu Jong and Hyung Jun @ Park Yong Ha funeral

박용하 선배님, 하늘나라에서 주님과 함께 늘 행복하게 주무하십시오.

On the 30th June, singer and talent Park Yong Ha breathed his last breath.

Park Yong Ha was found dead in his home in Seoul Nonhyun-dong at 5.30am in the morning where he was found to have hanged himself to death using the cable of his mobile phone charger. And it was discovered that he felt truly sorry towards his ill parents who are down with cancer due to long-term leaving their sides that he finally couldn't take it anymore and went to commit suicide. His filial piety truly got the better of him. On the 30th afternoon, police also further discovered that he died due to brash impulse moves, he hung himself in a moment of rash after drinking beer, and thus died of suffocation.

On the afternoon of 30th June where his temporary funeral wake was held at Seoul Kangnam's SungMo Hospital, talents So JiSub, Bae Yong Joon, Song SeungHeon, Kim Hyun Joo, SS501's Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Hyung Jun, Kyu Jong, UKISS Kim KiBum, Kim Bum, Park HyoShin, Yoon EunHye, UKnow YunHo etc some other stars attended to this.

In particular, Kim HyungJun whose relationship with Park YongHa isn't shallow got a chance to express himself in a phone interview with some media presses couldn't stop crying as he found it truly unbelievable and unexpected. He revealed that he was supposed to meet Park Yong Ha yesterday on the 29th June, but in the end they did not meet up, who knows the following day where he heard something about him again was about this. The reason why Kim HyungJun and Park Yong Ha is so close where he even treats Park YongHa like his akin brother is because during SS501's activities in Japan, Park YongHa happened to be doing his singer activities there too, even when they returned in Korea, they never stopped contacting close with each other. To the extend where Park YongHa who has almost no record in radio appearances showed Kim HyungJun pleasant face by appearing in his SBS radio Music High at 3 am in the wee morning.
Kim HyungJun was truly upset that his wonderful brother has now gone to heaven and left their sides.

*added HJ's sole description*
On the 30th night at around 11.55pm, Kim Hyun Joong was seen at Seoul SungMo Hospital attending Park YongHa's funeral with a grieved expression along wearing with black suit, and wasn't seen to say a single word but just entered the venue speedily. He was seen to have followed behind Bae Yong Joon who, too, attended to the funeral session.

Further procedures for Park Yong Ha's body will be conducted on July 2nd beginning 8am and will be said to carry out the Buddhist method of 'preserving the body for 3 days under 20 degree celsius'.

Conversation between KeyEast Receptionist and Korean TS

Pls credit the sources and all translators/sites when reposting. Do not re-edit or hotlink the graphics.

Here is a transcription of a telephone exchange between a Korean fan and the receptionist from Keyeast. Did this ever happen? We don't know. But a good point was raised by the Chinese fans on how come a receptionist knows so much. Again, read this with pinches of salt and I'd throw in some dashes of vinegar, yah?

No one can truly very whether this happened or not or it was just wishful thinking of somebody who posted it in SS601. Let me just remind you: DON'T BELIEVE IN EVERYTHING YOU SEE IN THE INTERNET. Unless, you went to your bank's IB site and it says you owe them $$$ or it suddenly displayed that you have a million dollars on your savings account. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

For now, anything you read regarding the contract,take them in with grains of salt. Unless, it's an official release from an Agency (DSP, Keyeast or any another agency).

Recep: Hello, how are you?

Fan: Err... Heard that Hyun Joong oppa has strongly requested for SS501 activities,
in that case, how long will the period of his solo activity be?

Recep: Ah... although that has not yet been decided,
but Hyun oong has been talking about SS501 matters
right from the start from the time he's signed the contract....

Fan: Ahhh... So (would Keyeast) be signing the remaining four members too?

Recep: Hyun Joong seems to be thinking along this line,
and they're now discussing about this matter.
The four members are now on vacation resting,
so cannot really confirm the schedule for the coming days.
Although we too cannot be sure,
but once the discussion has been concluded,
it's possible that we will sign the remaining four members.

Fan: Even if (Keyeast) didn't sign with the other four,
would Hyun Joong be able to continue with SS501 activities?

Recep: Our contract (with him) clearly states that
we will actively complement and work with SS501.
When there are SS501 activities, we will also let Hyun Joong participate.

Fan: Ahhh, thank you.
Please do not give wuri Hyun Joong oppa too much work; his body is weak.

Recep: Oh, alright~ Thank you.

[30/06] Announcement from “Triple S Japan” regarding Membership

Pls credit the sources and all translators/sites when reposting.

We all know there are only three official Triple S Fans Club: Korean, Japanese and Thai. This bit of notice irked some Japanese Triple S members. This sound like DSP is trying to stop TripleS from growing and it's on the verge of being dissolved. For me, it was such an insensitive notice.
