Please, if the Korea official fanclub dont bulk buy, I don't think it can sell 300,000. Such desperate measure...

Korean idol enrages Japanese netizens by eating instant noodles from the pot





While the Internet in general is known for being a bottomless cauldron of hate, nothing quite gets Japanese netizens seething like South Korea.

Case in point: the Japanese Internet is raging over a video of a young South Korean woman eating instant noodles because she has bad table manners.

The video is actually part of a promotional series for Shin Ramyun instant noodles in which members of Korean girl group T-ARA share their favorite home recipes. The clip in question features member Park Ji-yeon, who divulges that she prefers to stick with the orthodox recipe and proceeds to show viewers how to prepare Shin Ramyun according to the directions on the package.

From about 0:50, the video pans to Ji-yeon sitting down to eat her finished meal when suddenly, for reasons unexplained, she removes the lid of the pot with one hand, plunges her chopsticks directly into the pot with the other, lifts up a mass of noodles and plops them down on the overturned lid as if it were a plate before transferring them into her cute little mouth.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3sujWZdNQ4

After debuting on April 25th with their debut single “Karakawanaide!!”, Korean girl group CHI-CHI took to the stage and performed their track for the first time on Happy Music.

“Karakawanaide!!” is the Japanese version of their Korean song “Don’t Play Around”, which was released last year.


I honestly think they are not good, and the song doesn't match their looks. I am tired of this Kpop Shit.

Reversing Japan's rising sex aversion may depend on a rebirth of hope



"If young people's aversion to sex continues to increase at the present rate, the situation of Japan's low fertility rate and rapid ageing will rapidly worsen. ... The Japanese economy will lose its vitality even more than now. If this happens, this nation might eventually perish into extinction."


This startling prediction was made by Kunio Kitamura in a book published last year by Media Factory. Dr. Kitamura, an obstetrician and gynecologist who runs his own family planning clinic in Tokyo, is the author of more than a dozen books on reproduction and sexual health. Now, with "Sekkusugirai na Wakamonotachi" ("Young People Averse to Sex"), he has shown that Japanese young people are turning off sex and that this is bound to have dire consequences for the nation.


Let's get right down to the statistical basics.
