Freego @ PFW SS 2011

Kpop Portal recently visited the Freego fashion show at the Philippine Fashion Week Spring Summer 2011 held at the Main Atrium of the SM Mall of Asia. It was one wonderful evening of what Freego will be offering its patrons this coming summer. Noticeably nice was the glittered jeans for women and the great fitted jeans for men. Here are some of the collection. Comment as I am willing to give my loot bag that they gave me to the best comment we'll get.

Gut’s Dynamite Cabarets 2011 S/S Collection

The 11th Japan Fashion Week in Tokyo spelled fun and fashion. Last Tuesday, October 19th, Japanese label Gut’s Dynamite Cabarets showcased their 2011 Spring/Summer collection on the runway . The show featured wearable pieces for both men and women with a lot of patterns throughout. Gut’s Dynamite Cabarets founded in 2006 by two very charismatic guys – Cabaret Aki and Jackal Kuzu. Both born in 1974, the young designer pair first participated in Tokyo Fashion Week in 2006 and have since been active every season. Their style in both their menswear and womenswear lines has been characterized by vivid colors and bold patterns, including animal prints, brilliant reds, and polkadots.  Notice the henna tattoo designed as a neck piece which would likely be replicated in other parts of the world.

Injured U-KISS Members Struggle

With U-KISS comeback via “Shut Up!” the group seems to be going through some tough times as their members are suffering injuries, one by one.

Eli was the first member to sustain an injury, after he tripped during rehearsal on the morning of October 18. Fracturing his right arm, he sought treatment and underwent surgery.

Fortunately, the hospital stated that “it would not be difficult for him to perform.” Eli is currently performing with a cast and has revealed, “It will take 2-3 weeks to take off the cast. There’s a bit of pain, but it’s fine.”

Maknae Dongho was injured while participating in a marathon and complained of feeling a crick in his leg. Dongho explained:

“There was an event where idol group members would run a marathon with athlete Lee Bong Ju. We separated the idols into separate sections while Lee Bong Ju ran the entire 21km on his own. I tried my best, but it was still difficult. My leg began hurting after the marathon and so I went to the hospital and found that my muscles were shocked at the sudden strain. They said that I should rest for 3-4 days but I couldn’t since it’s our promotion cycle.”

Also, Kibum is also going through a bad throat condition, commenting with a laugh, “My throat is stinging and closing up, but it’s okay.”

Despite their conditions, U-KISS has been very professional, as they honor their commitments on Mnet’s “M Countdown“, KBS2’s “Music Bank“, and MBC’s “Show! Music Core.”

SMEnt' stops JYJ trio

SM Entertainment continues its attempt to stop JYJ’s debut in other countries and even sent complaints to the United States of JYJ’s distributor, Warner Music Korea. “The Beginning” is recorded entirely in English and is supposedly to be released in several countries worldwide.

The Korean Federation of Pop Culture and Art Industry has sent letters to TV stations KBS, SBS and MBC and cable network Mnet, as well as Korean online music sites and asked them not to allow JYJ to appear on their shows and sell the digital albums.

Despite these, Korean online music sites defied the letter and released the digital copies of JYJ’s “The Beginning” album last Oct 14. The songs in the album surprisingly entered the top 10 on real-time music charts.

JYJ plan to release the album in other countries and to meet their worldwide fans but this ongoing dispute with SM Entertainment over legal issues might take a while before the trio can perform without any restrictions.  How we wish this episode would end soon.

Super Junior's Eunhyuk in Italy

Enjoying his break, Super Junior's Eunhyuk shared his photos in Italy after they finished their official promotions for their 4th album “Bonamana”, the Asia Tour “Super Show”, and the SM Town World Tour.

Best budz who joined him on this trip are Leeteuk, Ryeowook, and Kyuhyun. It's nice to see Eunhyuk's big smile not for his fans this time but for himself, having fun.

Good for SME to give these guys a wonderful time together to relax!

Vaness Wu is single again

Former F4 superstar member Vanness Wu confirmed break-up with Singaporean girlfriend Arissa Cheo. The twosome used to date for a year in 2006, but broke up when the pair drifted apart when Arissa was studying in the US.

In  his Twitter post last September 4, the 31-year-old actor-singer hinted at his heartache and breakup with his squeeze. "No [,] I'm not saaayin~ [that I'm] soooorrry~ One DAY! Maybe we'll meet again~~~Closer to the edge," wrote Vanness.

A day earlier, he posted, "where it lies, is where you left it, where you left it, is where it died... revive, revive... revive the heart."

News of their breakup surfaced when Taiwanese netizens discovered that the couple was no longer following each other on Twitter. Arissa is widely known for her liberal ways like posing sexy pictures of herself online and this could be one of the reasons of the failed relationship?. Vaness, a devout Christian has taken a chastity pledge against pre-marital sex.

Vanness is currently preparing for his upcoming album and will be heading to France this October for the filming of a new drama, Material Queen.

Galleon visits Manila

I am going to try to check out tomorrow and visit the Galleon Andalucia. The floating Galleon Trade Museum a 16th century replica from Spain which is now embarking on a worldwide exploration.

The Philippines is this year’s host of the Dia del Galeon Festival, which UNESCO institutionalized at its General Conference in Paris last year. The festival commemorates the glorious past of the galleon trade, which made the world a global village. I'll update you tomorrow before it leaves for Cebu on Saturday.
