[News] SM Entertainment to produce Korean drama adaptation of Japan’s “Hana Kimi”

12 Mar

SM Entertainment will be producing a drama based on the über-popular Japanese comic, “Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (Hana Kimi)”!

The comic gained widespread success, selling over 17 million copies alone. It had a Taiwanese drama adaptation which recorded the highest viewer ratings in 2006, while its Japanese drama garnered an average of 17.04% in viewer ratings.

Since its widespread popularity reached Korea as well, representatives of SM Entertainment revealed on March 10th that they signed a contract that gave them the publication rights for its drama production.

Using an all boys high school as its backdrop, the original comic ran from 1996 to 2004 and detailed the lives of a group of ‘pretty boys.’

Representatives revealed, “The Korean version will have a total of 16 episodes that draw out stories of hopes and dreams. It’s a teenage comedy with a cute, but strong storyline and a slew of handsome cast members. We’re planning to begin airing it this summer.”

[News] SHINee’s Taemin is not leaving school because of attendance issues

5 Mar

Amidst recent reports that SHINee’s Taemin is leaving Chungdam High School due to problems fulfilling its attendance criteria, a spokesperson from the school has come forward to deny this, saying, “It is not true that his attendance is substandard.”

On the 2nd of March, through a phone call with EdailySPN, the spokesperson stated, “Although it has become generally known that Taemin is leaving school due to attendance problems, this is in fact different from the truth. If he had indeed failed to meet attendance expectations, he would of course have be dismissed from school. In this case though, he is leaving of his own accord.”

Prior to this, Taemin was caught up in a controversy when the subject of his leaving school was reported by the media.

Currently in his third year, Taemin is transferring to an arts school in order to better accommodate his promotion schedule with idol group SHINee.
