A New Rule For Casting Actors
-Requests Already Flooding In For Park Yuchun’s ‘Missing You’-Broadcasting Companies Fighting To Get Hallyu Stars Like Kim Jaejoong-Overseas Publication Rights Certified, Even With Low Viewer Ratings
The rules for casting actors for dramas are changing.
Though popular top stars continue to be the most sought after actors on the list, idol-turned-actors are showcasing a powerful presence that is on par with them. Though idol stars appearing in dramas isn’t new in the industry, they now possess a worth in their appearance alone, leaving the controversies and viewers’ ratings that had once been considered in the past behind them.
This is because of overseas publication rights. The idol stars’ value in the overseas market is growing exponentially these days to the point that representatives have commented, “All we need is for the drama to sell well overseas, even if it fails domestically.” A casting war now takes place over idol stars as their appearance in dramas ensures additional profits through exporting overseas publication rights, even if the dramas record low ratings in Korea.The ‘hottest’ stars broadcasting companies are fighting over are celebrities like Park Yoochun, Kim Jaejoong, Choi Siwon and U-Know Yunho.
They have risen as blue chips of the industry with their stable acting talent and popularity.Park Yoochun is currently acting in MBC’s ‘Missing You’. Thanks to his name value, countries such as Japan, China, and Taiwan are already making enquiries about overseas publication rights.

A representative of a drama production company stated, “Not all Hallyu stars have the same name value,” and “Idol stars have become a business model.”

[Trans] 121216 Second Place Becomes First Place? The Validity Of The ’2012 Melon Music Awards’ Is Questioned
The ‘Netizen Popularity Award’ recipients were not chosen by the netizens, 140,000 is greater than 180,000?
The validity of the ’2012 Melon Music Awards’, which was held on the 14th at the Seoul Olympic Park Gymnasium, is now being questioned.
The focal point of the controversy is the ‘Netizen Popularity Award’. The award was given to the group that received the second highest number of votes, rather than the singer who won the most votes from netizens.
In the voting procedure that took place between the 29th of November till the 13th of December, Kim Junsu topped the polls for his ‘Nice Guy’ OST ‘Love is Like a Snowflake’ with 185,519 votes (42%). But the award was given to B2ST’s ‘Midnight’, which gained 147,310 votes (33%).
Different from other awards that take on music chart rankings and netizen votes at a ratio of 7:3, the ‘Netizen Popularity Award’ was set to have 60% of the judgment process reflect the netizens’ votes.
One representative of the industry who asked for anonymity stated, “It seems that this goes along the same lines as how JYJ are being restricted from appearing on broadcasted or music-related events due to their conflict with their former agency.”
JYJ recently ended their three-year-long legal dispute with SM Entertainment. However, JYJ’s current entertainment agency C-JeS stated, “The restrictions placed on JYJ are not because of their legal dispute. This is why we believe there won’t be much change, even after the legal dispute has ended.”
Also, it was revealed that Kim Junsu knew about the awards ceremony and the result of the polls.
On the night of the awards ceremony, Kim Junsu tweeted, “Though I wasn’t able to stand on stage at the awards ceremony.. Thank you for the love you have shown me.. I’ll repay it even more with my future activities~ I’m always so grateful to you.. Really.. A lot.”
Meanwhile, representatives of the awards ceremony stated beforehand that, “The focal point of this awards ceremony is fairness, public appeal and professionalism,” and “The judging process, based solely on online music chart rankings and netizen votes, will ensure that winners are chosen fairly.”
