Korea’s SS501: Double S Oh Gong Il: Double S five oh one: 501 Day


SS501 (pronounced as Double S five oh one in Korea) is a South Korean boyband under management of Daesung Entertainment, also known as DSP Entertainment. The name of the band is a combination of the alphabet and numbers that have special meanings in them. The first “S” stands for “Super”. The second “S” is an abbreviation for "Star". The number 5, 0, and 1 means "five members united as one forever".

2005-2006: Debut

SS501 debuted on June 8, 2005 with their first single "Kyeonggo" (Korean: "경고", "Warning"), with a second single "Snow Prince" released in late 2005. The group was inactive in Korea for most of 2006, although they had a fan meeting in Japan in April. The hiatus was due to Heo Young Saeng's throat condition which required surgery, thus resulting in a need for time to fully recover. In mid-2006, they held their first concert, "Step Up Concert" in Osaka, Japan. In late 2006, they returned to Korea in order to promote their first full album, which was released on November 10 and titled S.T.01 Now. Singles from the album included "Unlock" and "Four Chance". As well as promoting the album on various variety and music shows, they also filmed a show on MNet called SOS. The group also lent their voices for the 2006 animated movie Pie Story.

2007-2008: Japanese activities, 'Boys Over Flowers' and 'Bad Girl Diary'

Later in 2007, the group debuted in the Japanese market. A Japanese fan club has been established with the name of "Triple S Japan"; it officially debuted on March 25, 2007, when SS501 had their first official meeting with the group. The group released their Japanese single "Kokoro", alongside multiple versions, including one with all members and five others featuring the members individually. The single debuted at #5 on the Oricon chart, and move to #3 the next day. A full album was released later in the year.

In 2008, SS501 returned to Korea with their single Deja Vu released on March 8, 2008. The title track was the first song to be promoted, and they started their comeback on music channel M.Net's M Countdown. After success with their single "Deja Vu", they began to promote their second single, "A Song Calling For You". They performed their Goodbye Stage on Music Bank on June 6, 2008, to return to Japanese activities.

On October 2, 2008, an official announcement confirmed that leader Kim Hyun Joong was part of the cast for the Korean version of Hana Yori Dango, officially named Boys Over Flowers. It was broadcast on KBS in the first half of 2009, with a total of 25 episodes and a few special episodes.

With both Park Jung Min (Danny Park on the musical Grease) and Kim Hyun Joong on solo activities, the next SS501 album was pushed back to July 2009. As such, the other three members released a project album named U R Man in November 2008. The first single released was "U R Man". They also promoted their single for the Boys Over Flowers soundtrack, "Nae Meoriga Nabbaseo" (Korean: "내 머리가 나빠서", "Because I'm Stupid"). Due to the success of the drama, the song had a high number of downloads.

2009: Solo collection, second mini album and first Asian tour

They released their official second Japanese album on May 13, 2009 titled All My Love and had a promotional tour in Japan in support of the album. The group also released their Solo Collection, consisting of the individual members' songs.

After concentrating on their individual activities, the group made a comeback and released their second mini album titled Rebirth, with the limited edition being released on October 20, 2009 and the normal edition on 22 October. The limited special edition album included two posters and a 100 page photo diary. Their comeback song "Love Like This" was well received, winning two Music Bank awards and one Inkigayo Mutizen in November. The group ended promotions for the album on November 29, 2009.

On August 1, 2009, the group started their first Asia tour, visiting Seoul, Tokyo, Taiwan, Shanghai and Hong Kong. The group will hold a concert in Thailand in February 2010, before holding another concert in Seoul (February 2010) to conclude the tour.They will have their comeback on 1 May 2010 (symbolizing 501) for a new album. It is still not confirmed whether it will be a mini album or a full album. One of the songs that will be included in the album is "CRAZY 4 U" which they sang at almost every Asia Persona Tour Concert.

    Confessions of a ‘ K-pop’ fangirl

    By Elisa Claustro
    Philippine Daily InquirerDateFirst Posted 22:05:00 02/20/2010

    I felt the familiar stirrings of a schoolgirl crush—which led to Google … on to catching their tour
    I THOUGHT I’D BE A LOT OF THINGS at 25, but never was it in my wildest dream to be a fangirl.

    I was Bangkok-bound to watch five cute Korean guys sing and dance onstage, I couldn’t help but wonder if I had already gone too deep into K-pop (Korean pop) “fangirldom.”

    My obsession started with “Boys Over Flowers,” a Korean show, where I was immediately drawn to Jihoo, the quiet, somewhat anti-social member of the famous F4.

    Not before long I felt the familiar stirrings of a schoolgirl crush, not only on the character, but also on the man himself.

    A quick Google yielded the singer/actor’s name—Kim Hyun Joong or “KHJ” as he is known.

    That Google search led to long hours on the Youtube, for anything about KHJ. I would giggle, scream and sigh (yes, in that order) to the chagrin of my mother, who couldn’t really understand what was going on with her supposedly “adult” daughter.

    My crush intensified when a work colleague told me that KHJ was also a lead of a boy band named SS501.

    So another round of frenzied Googling ensued, and soon, I was downloading songs from SS501. It took me another hour to get all of the other members’ names right.

    Seeking sisters

    You know how they say misery loves company? This applies to a fangirl who doesn’t have anyone to talk to about her crazy love for K-pop.

    Hoping to find other SS501 followers, I joined every online forum I could possibly find. I dropped by message boards, grabbed e-mail addresses, left comments on YouTube. I was desperate to find fans like me.

    I stumbled on the website “Triple S Philippines” (TSPH), the local chapter of the band’s official fan club. I hurriedly signed up for the group. It wasn’t like I had won the lottery or anything, but the thought of getting myself out there, to gush, without getting strange looks, created certain excitement.

    As insane as this may sound, I felt like I had found a long lost group of friends in TSPH. When I met them in person, I didn’t feel awkwardness, just an overwhelming sense of kinship.

    Spend or save?

    In the seven months I’ve been an SS501 fan and TSPH-er, I have come to realize that being a fangirl could be expensive.

    You have this urge to look for and buy anything with your idol’s name and/or picture—makeshift bookmarks with downloaded images of your idol, T-shirts, original CDs, concert DVDs, photobooks … I’m just about to spend on the Persona Tour.

    Serendipity and semi-stalking

    I first heard about the Persona Tour in September 2009. In an attempt to revamp SS501’s image and strengthen its presence in Asia, the band lined up concerts in Malaysia, HK and Taiwan.

    Some TSPH girls had already crossed the seas to watch the boys live, but a couple wanted to go for seconds (or even thirds!).

    Early this year, I became more convinced that I had to go. This was the chance of a lifetime, I told myself, and to let it pass would mean having to live with “what if?” the rest of my life.

    One TSPH-er had an extra ticket to the Persona Tour in Bangkok, the final stop. Hotel accommodations had also been taken care of. All I had to do was book my flight, so I did.

    I set out for Bangkok, on my own, on Feb. 12. Having had little rest, I caught a cold and arrived in Bangkok, tired, hungry and with bad laryngitis.

    Still, my spirits were high as I made my way to Siam Paragon for the press conference. There, I had another realization: being a fangirl is all about waiting.

    In the blazing heat, pressed against the bodies of local SS501 fans, my fellow TSPH-ers and I stood patiently and waited for three hours. The boys stayed and talked onstage for 10 minutes. I wasn’t disappointed, although I can’t say I was extremely happy either.

    Apart from the fact that I couldn’t scream and shout for KHJ (who looked so hot in a white suit, by the way), my camera doesn’t have enough zoom power, so it was nearly impossible to get good shots.

    All the mishaps of the day did not faze me, however. I had high hopes for the concert, and the thought of getting to watch SS501 live was enough to recharge my batteries.

    Back in the hotel, there was more waiting to be done. Because we were checked-in in the same place as the boys, we knew there was a good chance to see them before the concert. We waited in the lobby, and after two hours, they finally arrived.

    I caught a glimpse of only Kyu Jong and Hyung Joon, but the wait was definitely worth it. Many of the girls dashed after them as they stepped out of the hotel, but I decided to linger and relish the moment.

    Seeing stars

    After some pre-concert shopping for SS501 merchandise, we headed to the arena. We weren’t far, we weren’t close, but we really didn’t care. We just prepped ourselves for an awesome performance, and that was exactly what we got.

    The concert was fun, revealing, sexy and downright entertaining. It also made me see that there really was more to the band than KHJ. Each of them was able to show off his singing and dancing prowess. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time, pushing my voice to the limit and trying to project fangirl jibberish onto the stage. It truly was an experience of a lifetime.

    One would think that attending the concert would calm the fiery spirit of this fangirl. On the contrary, it has only fueled it.

    On the plane ride home, all I could think about was how much I wanted to see them again (and how it’s about time I got a camera with gazillion optical zoom).

    Obsessive as all this may sound to you, being a fangirl has pushed me to accomplish many firsts in my life—from taking a chance on strangers to traveling all by myself, to writing this love piece.

    If underneath the craziness lies this potential for great things, I have no qualms about continuing the journey and going even deeper into the wonderful world of fangirldom.

  • SS501 teases their comeback with album jacket photos!
    by heartfacee on May 1, 2010 @ 12:08 AM (EDT) • 165 comments

    SS501’s company DSP Entertainment announced that the boys would be making the first step of their comeback on May 1st. Well, unlike other singers, they kept their promise and didn’t postpone the date. Luckily for fans, they released individual teaser photos just in time.
    Seeing as these are album jacket photos for their upcoming album, it definitely reveals a lot about their new concept. Supposedly, this concept is the “Hannibal Lector concept.” Those face masks are quite something, aren’t they?
    Moments before the photos’ release, SS501 member Kim Kyu Jong even wrote on their official website, “There’s not much time left~”
    The photos are a bit scary and you can barely distinguish who’s who, but at the same time, they are sexy in a mysterious way. The website’s server is already down which shows that their new album is already receiving a hot response from the public.

    K-pop boy band SS501 may visit Manila in July
    April 18, 2010, 6:09pm

    Another K-pop idol group may visit the Philippines soon.

    Fangirlasia is currently negotiating to bring K-pop boy band SS501 to the Philippines for a fan meeting in July.

    Triple S Philippines, the local fan club of SS501, has started accepting reservations from members for VIP seats that would cost P5,000 each.

    Fangirlasia has also opened an event page on Facebook to know how many fans will be attending the event.

    “We would like to remind everyone that this event is just a survey. We are still under negotiation. Date, time, and venue are tentative,” it said.

    Since boy band SHINee visited the country in November last year, other K-pop groups followed suit.

    This year, bands that have already held shows in the country are 4Minute, FT Island, U-Kiss and Super Junior.

    Fangirlasia and Spin Manila brought boy band FT Island to the Philippines last March for the Manila 2010 Showcase held at the Philippine International Convention Center.

    SS501 is a five-member boy band managed by DSP Entertainment that was launched in 2005. It is composed of leader Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Kyu Jong, Heo Young Saeng, Park Jung Min and Kim Hyung Joon.

    Last year, SS501 held their first Asia Tour Persona that kicked off in Seoul and visited Tokyo, Taipei, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Bangkok.

    Kim Hyun Joong, in particular, starred in the last year’s hit Korean drama series “Boys over Flowers,” which also became a top-rated program in the Philippines.

    Last year, SS501 received the Bonsang and Hallyu awards in the Seoul Music Awards. The group also won the Best OST (official soundtrack) Award in the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) for “Because I’m Stupid,” which was used in “Boys over Flowers.” It also won the Top Buzz International Group in the Yahoo Buzz Award.

    SS501 will be coming back to the K-pop music scene with a new album in May.

    SS501 to hit the 21st Golden Melody Awards
    It has been confirmed that South Korean group, SS501, will be heading to Taiwan in June for the 21st Golden Melody Awards. Having just ended their Asian concert tour at the beginning of the year, they are currently in the midst of practicing singing and dancing, and choosing outfits for the ceremony. Besides being performance guests, the five of them will also be presenting an award. Filled with anticipation, after returning to Korea from Japan, they threw themselves into rehearsal.

    Last year, in October, SS501 held their concert in the Taipei Arena and have now received the offer to take part in Taiwan's Golden Melody Awards. Despite having a fully packed schedule while working on their new album, the five agreed immediately and set aside everything else on their schedule.

    SS501 are looking forward to their first time participating in the Chinese music scene and hope to interact with more Taiwanese artistes. They will be singing their chart-topping song as well as their latest single for their performance.

  • OFFICIAL FAN CLUB: TRIPLE S (Triple S stands for Super Stars Supporters)

    OFFICIAL COLOR : GREEN (Triple S other name is Greenpeas because the sea of green balloon looks like a green peas )



    *NOTE: A korean fan (HIJU1227) summarized reasons why it is a happy thing to be SS501’s fan.
    She especially wanted to let the Japanese fans know.
    Of course, I was really touched by this article,
    so I think every one of SS501’s fans should know this.

    1. Jung Min and Kyu Jong said during the broadcast of Youngstreet Radio
    they will buy pancakes (or something like that)
    for the fans waiting outside of the station, in the end, they really bought it.

    2. On a cold day, Hyun Joong bought hot hottokyu (a rice cake soup with sugar added)
    for the fans waiting for Music Bank.

    3. Some fans waited in front of Hyung Jun’s house all the way until late at night, the last bus has also left.
    Hyung Jun felt that it wasn’t safe late at night, so he sent the fans to a sauna that was open all-night.

    4. Hyung Jun who sends hot water to the fans waiting outside of their home.

    5. On Youngstreet Radio, when they learnt that a fan wasn’t able to continue her studies due to difficult circumstances,
    Jung Min and Kyu Jong gathered their money together to help pay the tuition fee for that fan.

    6. One time at a fan signing event, after a fan shook Hyung Jun’s hand, she turned around and started crying.
    Hyung Jun grabbed her hand and helped her wipe away the tears.

    7. During the time when MKMF’s cellphone votings were open,
    Jung Min very seriously said, “(We) don’t want that kind of award, everyone please don’t spend money to vote.”

    8. Kyu Jong who bows down 90 degrees to even the younger generation and those who are younger than him.

    9. Kyu Jong often say that because he is a member of SS501, at any moment, he must do a impressive job.

    10. Hyun Joong always say that compared to gifts, they like genuine and sincere letters even more.
    So that is why that (and we can see this on TV whenever they walk by fans)
    whenever the fans give a huge pile of gifts, they only take away the fans’ letters.

    11. During the 2006 MKMF, when security guards did not let only TripleS enter the stadium,
    Hyun Joong indignantly spoke out for TripleS,
    “The weather is so cold, why do you persistently just won’t let our fans enter?”
    On that day, the five people kept looking for TripleS members in the stadium.

    12. Some fans gathered in front of SS501’s apartment making noise,
    the surrounding neighbors all brought up protests.
    Hyun Joong let the other 4 members go back into the house,
    and he himself stayed behind to apologize to the angry residents.

    13. Hyun Joong said before, “It’s not for TripleS to protect us, it is us protecting TripleS.”

    14. When asked what he hoped for the fans to send him,
    Hyun Joong said, “The things that we need we will buy ourselves.”
    When a fan sent a branded handbag to Hyun Joong,
    he said, “I feel really sorry for accepting this kind of present,
    it’s not as good as if (she) were to just buy more of our CD.”

    2006 MKMF

    Below is one of MKMF that happened in 2006, no other meanings,
    just to let everyone know how well SS501 is treating TS.

    SS501's "4Chance"(?) ranked 1st in N times weekly and monthly rankings,
    thereby qualifying them to be one of the nominees for the MKMF Daesang (Grand Prize
    which was set up for cellphone voting.

    During that time, a lot of student fans did not eat and used their lunch money to vote for them.
    SS501 said, "We heard that such cellphone voting is expensive,
    everyone should not waste money on voting for us. We don't want this award."

    However, fans tried hard to vote for them no matter what.
    The voting dateline was the eve of MKMF award ceremony, 10pm.
    The numbers showed that that SS501 had already won the award by the deadline.
    But unexpectedly, after 10pm, they were overtaken by anotherr nominee.
    The fans were very angry.

    During the MKMF award ceremony, the security did not allow SS501 fans to enter the venue.
    Hyun Joong went around to negotiate with security and staff member,
    saying "In this cold weather, why don't allow our fans in?"
    In essence, the organizers were afraid that the fans would make a fuss and kick up a ruckus,
    so they had disallowed TS entry.

    Later, led by Leader, the boys went to the big hall to find those TS that were not able to enter the venue.
    Then later at the the MKMF award ceremony,
    SS501 was awarded a 'surprise' win of "Best Dance".

    Hyun Joong said in his speech: “Actually our dance was not that good......."

    hyun joong:


    Hyun Joong's Childhood Story (Hyun Joong mother's interview)


    0-4 yrs old, as long as Hyun Joong was lost in the park, it must be because he ran to the singer performance stage.

    Since Hyun Joong was born, he was very popular among the neighbours because of his big eyes, sharp intuition and cleverness.

    One day, in my dream, all in a sudden, I dream of a truck fully loaded with radish driving passed me. There was a huge radish which was of the size of the truck. Withing my apron on, I ran after the truck, trying to catch the big radish. The radish rolled into my apron and I fell down onto the floor. This was the largest radish I had ever seen in my entire life. I was very surprised. Just when I tried to lift up the radish to take a look, I woke up from my dream. I felt very strange: "Is this a sign that I am pregnant?" Therefore, I went to the hospital for checkup. The doctor told me: "Congratulations!". Indeed, I was pregnant!

    Hyun Joong started to walk when he was 9 month old. Before this, although he can sit alone, he couldn't climb, the family members were worried that he might be slow to learn walking. However, he omitted the climbing stage and advanced to the walking stage. All the family members were shocked.

    During his 1 year old birthday, he would offer his birthday steam rice cake for the guests to eat. During the Toljabee* event, in order to let him choose the pencil and book, the family members purposely placed both items right in front of him, instead, he chose the brush which was placed beside those items. Hyun Joong started speaking and counting very fast, but he was most interested to sing, dance and play games.

    (*Note: Toljabee event is used to predict the child's future. In this case, Hyun Joong picked the brush which symbolizes that he will become a scholar.)

    Since being newly wed up to now, our family has been living nearby the SongpaGu Olympic park. Every weekend, there would be a lot of singers performing there. When bringing Hyun Joong and his elder brother who is 1 year older than him to the park for a stroll, both children would be very happy.

    Hyun Joong even got lost a few times, I panicked and searched all over the park, eventually he was always found at the stage where the singers were performing.

    Once, the dance group "Seo Tai-ji and boys" were singing 'I Know' in the park, Hyun Joong actually ran up to the stage to dance. He even played games with the other singers on stage and laughed happily. Hyun Joong was excellent in his studies, it had never come to my mind that he will become an artist. However now that I started to think, he seems to be different from other kids since childhood.

    Kim Hyun Joong excelled in studies when young, had never thought of being a star

    5 - 9 years old, childhood time Kim Hyun Joong

    From kindergarten, Hyun Joong had shown his multiple talents. Solving math sum very fast and drew well. Also, learned to speak and recognized words very fast. His elder brother who was 1 year older than him would always sit still to learn. However, Hyun Joong was the kind of child who could play almost everything but yet could still learn well at the same time.

    We were worried that both children would feel pressured from learning, therefore, we always let them get in touch with nature more often. In order to celebrate their starting of primary school life, our family went for a tour in Jeju Island. During that time Hyun Joong rode on a horse which was many times taller than him and refused to come down. Seeing this, the people around praised him for being so wonderful. During weekends, we always brought the children to fish. This is why until now, if he felt pressured from his artist work, Hyun Joong will always go fishing alone.

    Starting from 2nd year of primary school, Hyun Joong became the class representative. He always handled his own things meticulously. Waking up right after his little alarm clock rang at 6am in the morning on time, completing all his home work by himself. When we visited his school, his class teacher always praised him: "Hyun Joong was very fast in learning. He would not have a problem to enroll into Seoul University."

    At that time, we thought Hyun Joong would use his learning ability to be successful in his career, we had never thought that he would be an artist.

    Actually, starting from 2nd to 4th year of his Primary school, Hyun Joong participated in the Mathematic Olympic Competition and he always won the Gold medal. He also always won in art competition. His medals were so many until it could fill up an entire box. His result was always ranked 1st in the class and often rank 1st or 2nd in the whole school.

    To prevent him from being singled out by his friends, we also sent him for extra tuition classes to learn calligraphy and Hanja. Even in the tuition center, he was always top in the class. When still in the lower primary years, Hyun Joong already obtained the certificate for level 3 Hanja qualification examination. His tuition center teacher praised: "Hyun Joong passed the certification examination even lower secondary students found hard to pass." Our family members were also shocked.

    Hyun Joong hide 300 millions won (approximately USD237,000) in a book as a gift for his brother

    In junior high school placement test, he was enrolled scoring the 4th highest result in the entire school. It was in his 3rd year junior high school when he announced that he wanted to be an artist. As his father was worried that he was too engrossed in his studies, he bought him a guitar to 'rest his brain', this was the trigger point for him to be an artist.

    Hyun Joong started to be engrossed in guitar. Hyun Joong guitar teacher said: "He is very talented, something needed to be learned in 3 years he could master them in 3 months. His guitar teacher once advised his father to let Hyun Joong further his talent in music, but his father was strongly against it.

    There after, Hyun Joong formed a band, working part time and performing outside. There's once, the neighbours said: "The day before, the child of that household was delivering fried chicken." Only then the family knew that he worked part time in fried chicken restaurant. We felt that as a man one had to be independent, it is alright to go through hardships, so we didn't stop him from working.

    Hyun Joong said: "I would follow my parents' wish to study in arts high school, but I will make every other decisions in future." After joining the high school for 1 year, he voluntary dropped out from school. His father & I said: "Dropping out was your own choice, you have to be responsible for your own decision." He was given only 10 thousand won (USD7.90!) pocket money every month.

    Due to Asean financial crisis, our business was affected. We started a fashion business in Dongdaemun. We had to work until 11pm everyday. After getting off from work, I often went to the TGI restaurant which my son worked to secretly watch my son working for around 1 hour before returning home.

    During winter, while waiting for my son to come back home, I kept looking out for him from the window. At around 1am, looking at my son making his way through the knee height snow with much difficulties, I felt pain in my heart. In spite of that, I didn't want him to see my sorrow and always turned off the lights to pretend that everybody had fallen asleep.

    After passing the trainee singer interview, my son would return home only when he was given time off. In order to be a trainee, his pocket money was always not enough. Often, he came back starving by public bus. There were many times, he didn't even have the transportation fee and had to walk home. Despite that, Hyun Joong had never once asked for money from us.

    But his love for his family members is extremely deep. When his brother who was studying in America decided to dropped off from his university due to lacking of school fees, Hyun Joong told his brother: "Brother, please read this book." and gave him a novel as a present.

    When his brother opened up the book to read, he found a 300 million won cheque hidden in the book. His brother gave his father a call mentioning that no matter how he counted he couldn't believe the cheque amount. It was beyond our imagination that while being a trainee singer, he could still carefully save so much money. Ever since he enrolled into the university (Kyonggi University Digital Music faculty), we never worried about him.

    Both of us always told him: "Pray before doing something". Although Hyun Joong said: "Since now elder brother is serving in the army, you can rely on me. Therefore, in the future, don't work in Dongdaemum anymore." We hope that not only he can be a singer but also be able to form a family of his own and be responsible. With this, we have no other extravagant hopes.







    Jewel of my heart,
    loving son Kyu Jong,

    It feels like yesterday when you cried out so loud when you were born that your grandmother said, “Our grandson has such a powerful voice, he can be a singer in future~” and she was happy. When i see you already growing up and finding your right path, i am really proud and thankful.

    You wrote on top of your desk “Your dream will come true if you have one. I am happy that i have a dream. If you keep the dream and you work hard, it will come true.”

    When i see this, i felt happy but i also felt bad that i couldn’t help you to make your dream come true.

    When you were little, mom and dad had to work at night and came back at morning. When you were only eight, when needed your mom’s warm hands.. You had to prepare dinner with the tiny hands of yours and take care of your young sister/brother.

    My heart felt like tearing when i saw you woken up by nightmares.

    My son Kyu Jong, I always think of you when it rains. I remember when you used to go outside with an umbrella to practice singing in the rain by yourself, for your dream.

    Unknowingly, you made yours dreams bigger.

    But i didn’t even send you to a piano lesson, I just forced you to study. Now I feel bad.

    Last summer you went Seoul alone and when i saw that even you have to continue practicing and doing all the housework, you still have the passion for your dream. I was proud but felt bad at the same time. I couldn’t take care of you are young and even now because my work, but you have never let me down, you have chosen the right path.

    You have a warm heart that able you to care for the others, you have the passion for your work. You worked hard to make everything perfect for your dream to come true.

    I’m so proud of you when i see you making your dreams come true one by one without even showing that you are tired at such a young age.

    Also, the loving sons i earn with my heart…
    HyunJoong, YoungSaeng, JungMin, HyungJoon~

    Don’t forget that you still have your parents and your fans supporting you. I hope that you all would work hard and be the best.

    I love you~

  • SS501 New Album Jacket is Sponsored Clothes by Dominic's Way
    Posted by Marvie
    I was just actually about to blog about this and was already putting my materials to use when I saw Marvie's post. Thank Marvie.

    As some of you already know by reading from other sites and blogs, the sponsor of SS501 clothes for their new album jacket is Dominic's Way by Song Hwae Myeong.

    The name sounds familiar? For those following OnStyle Magazine 'What Women Want', you first heard/seen designer Song in episode 3 when Jung Min was at Doota! checking on some items.

    Then on March 26 upon the invitation of designer Wong, she invited Jung Min to be one of her VIP guests in Seoul Fashion Week showcasing Dominc's Way leather/gangster collection. And this was shown in episode 7 of OnStlye Magazine 'What Women Want'.

    When I first saw the photos of SS501's 501Day photos, I was actually thinking and telling myself 'Where the hell have I seen this? I think I've seen this somewhere but I just can't tell where.' Until I've seen photos from Dominic's Way sites posted on several webbies and re-watch SFW featuring Dominic's Way.

    Dominic's Way 2010 F/W Collection is using black color, leather jacket, pants and boots to display the man's charm and masculinity. It has become a topic of talk. According to designer, Song while thinking about the concept, she thought of the gangster look.

    As the 501Day album jacket came out at exactly 12MN on 5.01 it has immediately become the topic of talk and move up fast in real time search. Fans started giving out their comments. Here are just some of the words to describe the concept of SS501 : mysterious, intriguing, creepy, dark, sexy, toxic love, futuristic, unique, domination. Some even said that they are reminded of Darth Vader and Fifth Element. And for some with a more imaginative way of interpreting the photos they think that the photos exudes sexy appeal and kinky [Yen, i read your tweets and I agree with you! ^_^].

    From reading most of the comments, fans were awed at the new image of SS501. With Dominic's Way gangster look, the mysterious mask plus the sexy paraphernalia such as, whip on Hyun Joong, handcuff on Young Saeng, arms with lace on Kyu Jong's chest , red rose with broken stem on Maknae's hand and Jung Min's deadly hat [alright help me with Jung Min's effect, i really can't figure it out^_^ except that his stare is deadly] i think there's really so much to look forward to the SEXY CONCEPT that SS501 is talking about.

    Below are some images from Dominic's Way webby.
