2. Taemin to be on Immortal Song 2
<The new line-up is interesting for making an idol group member and an R&B vocal group member compete on the same stage. Especially, Taemin, a SHINee member whose role as a vocalist hasn’t been much, will make an unexpected challenge by joining Immortal Song 2. Ko Min-gu PD said, “Taemin has saved his voice because of pubescent vocal change, but he has practiced a lot and wants to make this a chance to grow more as a singer.” Immortal Song 2 with SHINee’s Taemin and Brown Eyed Soul’s Sunghoon will be aired from the third week of January. – from 10 Asia http://10.asiae.co.kr/Articles/new_view.htm?a_id=2011122611202075067>
<On Jan. 6, KBS 2TV Immortal Song 2 PD Ko Min-gu said, “legend singer Song Chang-sik is now confirmed to be on Immortal Song 2, and 12 singers are preparing to contest with his songs.”
The recording will be made on Jan. 16 with Taemin, Sunghoon, Ali, Im Tae-kyung, Shin Yongjae, Lee Hari, Lin, No Brain, Sonia, Lee Jung, G.O., and Hong Kyungmin. – from TV Report http://www.tvreport.co.kr/?c=news&m=newsview&idx=187065>
*Taemin is actually the ONLY idol member in the contestant line-up (Edit: G.O. was added for this special later). Fans seem to be more worried than excited, but I think this can be a good opportunity for Taemin to show his growth. I look forward to his performances. Now, in this special episode with legend singer Song Chang-sik, there will be 12 contestants. It’s simply too many, isn’t it? Can we even have a 3 minute Taemin’s stage?!
3. Minho to be on SBS sitcom “Salamander Guru and the Shadows” as a genius hacker
<Genius hacker with social phobia: Minhyuk, whose father is a computer genius, played with a computer like a toy from when he was little. He grew up learning hacking skills through his dad who was terminally ill and ran an illegal gambling place for his family’s future. After his dad passed away, Minhyuk was adopted abroad. He immersed himself in playing with computer and got social phobia. When he turns 20, he returns to Korea and starts chasing the guy X who drove his dad to death. Following clues from his memories, he finds Salamander Guru’s fortune telling house and meets Seondal and Wonsam. To find Salamander Guru who knows the secrets of X, Minhyuk has no choice but to help the fake gurus. With his brain and excellent hacking skills, Minhyuk controls Seondal behind a mirror and finds codes his dad left by recalling his childhood memories one by one.
