Leeteuk is frustrated over his 'Google' profile image

   /  View Comments

Super Junior leader Leeteuk vents his frustration over the insensitive use of his mourning photo as his Google profile image.

Leeteuk tweets,

"..Google is really too much.. I kept on tolerating this over and over again for such a long time and requested to change it, then they put this.. do you think it's good to display someone else's pain like this??.. is this even different from before? I even captured the old one. I wonder how to stop the cruelty of portal site."

He adds, "..I want to know if Idid something wrong.. what are they thinking putting one such profile photo on a portal site like that? I want to ask.. Have I done something wrong to you?.."

Leeteuk is obviously talking about how Google chose to use a photo of himself crying as he mourned during the funeral of his grandparents and father when he was still serving military. It's indeed questionable that out of all his photos, Google uses this instead.

"Just brought my gun it's about to go down RIP namjoon #TRBinNYC".

So when the night comes, I couldn't find them."

Though it could mean a playful statement thrown many were offended by his thoughtless action.

TASTY rebut Woollim; accuse agency of lying

   /  View Comments

It appears like it's a heated battle between artists and agency as Tasty rebut Woollim's statement regarding the twins' withdrawal announcement.

Woollim has recently expressed their side stating that they are shocked to know that Tasty has announced halting of Korean activities without their consent and further stated that they have even prepared a comeback for both domestic and Chinese promotions in June but the twins have suddenly gotten out of contact.

However, Tasty quickly rebut and post their frustration on Twitter saying that Woollim is lying and they have indeed had a meeting with the CEO and necessary executives about the matter and even mention that the agency understood their position. Moreover, Tasty also deny that the songs are finished recording and reveal that the agency decided on their title song without considering their opinion and threatened them that if they don't accept, their comeback will be postponed.

With these series of revelations, it's hard to point out who's saying the truth and not. Let's hope for the both parties to discuss the matter privately and come to a better conclusion.

UPDATE: Woollim clarifications

Woollim acknowledges the meeting Tasty mentioned but points out that halting Korean activities was not involved in their discussion besides they talked about scheduling their comeback promotions and schedules. In addition, Woollim expresses that the agency has the right to decide on the title track as well.

   /  View Comments

On 15th, Tasty posted and announced on Weibo that they decided to halt their 8 year-long life and career in Korea and focus mainly in China, thus leaving their agency Woollim Entertainment for good and terminating their contract.

As response, Woollim Entertainment reveals today that they have no idea about the twins' decision and was not notified prior to their announcement. The agency adds, "We have been giving (Tasty) wide range of support to achieve mutual goals."

"In fact, they have completed recording new songs last June and we're currently preparing to announce their domestic and international schedules and activities. It's very embarrassing."

Woollim assures that fans can avoid thinking about the worst as the agency are going to contact the twins who are in China and discuss the matter. Meanwhile, Tasty released their latest digital single "Addiction" in August last year in Korean and has advanced to China with a Chinese version of the latter.
