Good things come to those who wait and I’m guessing a lot of people will be waiting for this week’s M! Countdown

This is definitely a year week for girl bands. Female group Jewelry is coming back after a year long break. They plan to show a powerful live stage and one that’s more mature as each individual member was able to grow through their individual activities through the year. Seems kinda random but if it’s anything like One More Time, then I’m ready to see it one more time.


Yep, it’s finally here! If you’ve been following 2NE1 or 4minute, then you’ll know that they’ll BOTH be making their first appearance on the show. 2NE1 will appear for the first time on M! Countdown and 4minute just appears for the first time EVER. This of course is causing comparisons between the two newbie groups. After all, both had a huge following before they even debuted (case in point, 4minute actually still hasn’t debuted), both have colorful wardrobes (or stylists who hate them), and both have been said to have similar music styles. All this boils down to one thing…a nice, friendly competitionSHOWDOWN known as M! Countdown. Dance-off, Face-off, Show-off, whatever you wanna call it. And of course it helps that they’re both performing on the same day. So what do you think will happen? Will 2NE1’s Fire die out? Will 4minute’s debut be just a 4 minute memory? And let the countdown begin..


Other performers scheduled for the 18th June episode of M! Countdown include Lee Jung Hyun, Chae Yeon, Lee Seung Chul, MC the Max, Outsider, 2PM. And as reported earlier, Lady Gaga will also be present on the show as well to make it even more worth watching despite the obviously lousy sound equipment that MNET has.

TaeYeon duet ‘A Goose’s Dream’ with Lee Jeok causes topic amongst netizens

A video of So Nyeo Shi Dae TaeYeon singing a duet ‘A Goose’s Dream’ with singer Lee Jeok has become a topic amongst netizens.

The 2 were at LA Hollywood Bowl on 9th May where they sang the duet. And the fanvideos of the performances were uploaded online.

The song is a remake of the original ‘A Goose’s Dream’ by singer In Sooni in 1997 , but with a different feel than the original version.

Fans’ responses to the video, “TaeYeon is really something. Even her high pitches are so natural and great”, “This is a very touching scene of a senior and junior singer singing together” etc.

Netizens love So Nyeo Shi Dae Jessica and Park Jung Hyun’s rendition of ‘You Raise Me Up’

The duet ‘You Raise Me Up’ sang by So Nyeo Shi Dae Jessica and Lena Park (Park Jung Hyun) during the Korea Music Festival at Hollywood Bowl on 9th May has become the topic amongst netizens.

After the performance, Park Jung Hyun and Jessica said, “It was fun”, “Really fun and interesting”. This is the first time the 2 sang together.

Other than Jessica, other members like Tiffany and Sunny had performed with Lena Park before. For instance, Sunny performed with Lena Park on ‘The Starry Night’ during a radio show on MBS in 2007.

Meanwhile, netizens’ responses to this stage area also overwhelming and positive.

Here’s the concept for SNSD 2nd Mini Album

The group that swept the Korean music industry in early 2009 with the “Gee syndrome”, SNSD, is aiming to do so again.

SNSD’s company SM Entertainment said that SNSD will comeback on the 25th with their second mini album. They are receiving a lot of attention because of their record numbers in album sales, mobile downloads, online charts, and all music charts, as well as creating the record of being number 1 for 9 weeks on KBS Mubank.

SNSD is looking to change once again for this mini album and is also aiming to create another SNSD craze. The company said that the second mini album contains all of SNSD’s charms as well as great music that will show the public the power of SNSD.

“We are happy to come back with a new song and a new performance.” SNSD said, “We are all working hard so anticipate our transformation and support us.”

I’m really sorry that I’m not here to make this blog alive. Thanks denzsheang for keeping it alive for us. We are still looking for people to update this blog to so it wouldn’t be burden to denzsheang. Please contact me!!!

Anyways, actually I’m busy because I’m still working on my demo and other stop and been crazy because of the gathering.Sapphire Pearls is an afflifiate of us. Me and Hazel is the one who organize this gathering. I should have posted this before but since it’s move again, I’ll post now. But sorry for those who are in Cebu, you’re gathering already took place  yesterday (June 7). Here are the details of the gathering in Manila and Mindanao.

Sapphire Pearls Phils. Gathering

A gathering to unite all Filipino’s heart with Super Junior…


First it was Malaysian Sapphire Pearls to have gathered; now it SP Phil’s turn to unite and bond together and spend the day to remember the friendship Super Junior has given us. This gathering wouldn’t be formal but just a picnic like spending time with family, after all we are one family.  In Cebu Gathering, SJUPH will join us and it will be their Endless Moment II in Cebu.


Manila Gathering

Date and Time: July 4 , 1 pm to 4 pm

Place: Luneta Park, meet us near Juan Sumuroy Statue near Chinese Garden.

Things to bring:

–         a mat or anything you can lie on that can be put in the grass.

–          Snacks and plastics

–          Blue balloons

–          1 piece of paper (recyclable papers are highly encourage, small ones) 

–          Color materials (such as color pens, crayons, color pencils but please don’t bring glitters)

–          Glue

–          P50 to P100




-introducing oneself

-Talents on the spot (*evil laugh*, but please don’t be afraid to come because of this, I believe all ELF are talented. We wouldn’t force you if don’t do it)


                *truth or dare

                *the one Super Junior played with Anya and Eva in the so-called training camp.)

                * I’m out of ideas, but I open for suggestions

-Group picture taking

-Balloon releasing with wishes for Super Junior

-I don’t know, if we can find someone who speaks at least basic Korean, we might call SukIra. I know it’s early but there are chances that they are recording it since sometimes it isn’t live right?!?


That’s all…



Just kidding… I know you’re asking what does items 5-6 is for.

Well, we wouldn’t end the gathering by picture taking or the balloon releasing but instead of making a photo/letter book for Super Junior.

A 20 page photo/letter book (one bond paper for page, cover are included) for Super junior is enough to let them know our love for them right? We’ll make something similar to this >

We’ll write our own letters on the said photo/ letter book so be ready for a maximum of 30 words (is it to small) letter for Super Junior so please bring colorful ballpens or blue ballpens. The ones who are there will be able to write it by themselves. For them to be able to read and understand the letter, it would be better if you’ll write it in Korean, but then I think it’s the best to write it in our own language so they can feel the Filipino love but your choice, hehe. We’ll need someone who can translate  Filipino to Korean and can write it so we can add the translation to the main letter. Please contact me ( For those who have drawing of Super Junior 13 (All of them in one band paper) , we’ll be happy to add it but we need the best and we’ll only choose one! As the others make the photo/ letter book, some will go to the nearest photoshop so we can print out the picture taken by that day and the other gathering from Cebu and Mindanao (4 each in Manila, Cebu and Mindanao,  and 1 sapphire blue balloons flying.. total of 13 pictures) we’ll just get the best pictures (probably the group picture ones) and be printed out.  The final gift will be send to Sukira (please, don’t ask us the address) by LBC. The shipment might cost P1000 to P2000 defending on the Kilograms of the gift. That’s why we are asking for contribution for the print out of the pictures and shipment.  (Disclaimer: I know, this is a risk taker because even though we do send it to them in Sukira, that doesn’t mean it can get to them. But it’s worth trying right?)

How does the letter works?!?

We’ll be accepting letters from people who can’t come in the gathering in the 3 part of Philippines but it will be limited since the one who are there will be writting first. While people in Cebu will gather letters too and one general letter (I’ll ask the organizers to make it). For those in Mindanao, just send your letter to me (remember, maximum of 30 words) and one general letter (which will be made too by the organizers). The Letters that was send to us will be printed out while the ones who came in the gath will be written by themselves and about the Cebu Gathering, they’ll be sending it and we’ll write it for them. For the mindanao, we’ll write the first 13-20 letters while print out the rest.


1. greetings to Super Junior and  Heechul celebrating his birthday and belated to Leeteuk oppa ; 2. general letter from Sapphire Pearls (I’ll ask Yieng to do this.); 3. Letter from the Sapphire Pearls Phils. (defenitely made by admins of SP Phils.); 3. Picture of Sapphire Blue Balloons floating in the sky; 4. Pictures of the Gathering in Manila with the letter from the organizers. 5-7. Letters from Manila. 8. Picture of the gathering in Cebu with the letter from the organizers. 9-11. Letter’s from Cebu. 12. pictures from mindanao and letter from the organizers; 13-15. Letters from Mindanao. 16. Fanart 17. request to them(we wouldn’t tell but we really need someone who can translate Filipino to korean and write it in hangul) 18. the last word will be.

Mahal namin kayo! (please tell me how do they say I love you in Mindanao and Visayas?)





Any more reaction? Comments and Suggestions? Fill free to ask us.


This may not be a formal gathering but this might be a meaningful gathering.. ^_^


See you there..


Mindanao Gathering

The gathering will be held at first week of July since Joann will be going to other place for family reasons I think.

Still it will be on held on a beach.

Since there won’t be a picture of the SP Gathering in Mindanao, I decided to announce that there will still be picture from people in Mindanao. But it won’t be the same. Just send  the (at my yahoo account stated above) 1 group picture (minimum of 5 person, mianhae but i need to maximize the spaces since the pages is only limited.) If you can’t, i just might add other person in the picute, i’ll just photoshop it. It will be great if it will be taken similar to a beack but its okay if not, just show your Super Junior love with banners or balloon or wear blue.. I’ll choose the best 4 group picture.  That’s All, i’ll announce the rest when everything is finalize there..



This not a gathering that is organize by ELF PH, or link to their gathering in July 11. Andrea unni, contacted me and told me that many confuse about this and their gathering. I repeat, this is not a gathering hosted by ELF PH. We are not united or afflifiates with ELF PH. Thank you.


If you’re afraid to come because you think this is only Sapphire Pearls Gathering or you might be Out of Place, please don’t be afraid. Our main objective is to tighten the friendship between all the people who supports and love Super Junior. Thank you.


And one more thing.


No matter what fan club you are from, ELF PH or SJUPH or any other fanclubs, as long as you love Super Junior,



Thank you and see you there.




Truthfully yours,

Sapphire Pearls Phils.

please follow this format


[City, Province] (so i can determine if your from Visayas area, Mindanao area, or Luzon area..

PS: If you have the mp3 of ITS YOU, don’t put it at websites or post it to your blog and don’t share it.. Let’s wait until it will be officially release. Let us wait together at MAY 17 and support Super Junior..

2NE1 is looking to spice things up as they break into the music scene. And instead of merely conforming to the innocent and pretty image, they are bringing on a chic and edgy style. “Lollipop” was (and still is) a big hit, but that was for commercial purposes only and was not their official debut song. There has been a lot of speculation whether 2NE1 would be able to hold themselves up without the help of big brother-Big Bang.

After some anxiety over 2NE1’s inevitable debut, YG Entertainment announced their strategy for launching the new girl group.

1. The song ‘FIRE’ will be released on 2NE1’s official homepage from 1st May. Only a 20 second teaser will be posted up at first. But with each day, 10 seconds of the song will be added. And on the day before the actual release, on May 5th, a (longer) 1 minute long version can be heard.  And on May 6th itself, the MV and the full song will be revealed on online music sites.
2. The full song of ‘Fire’ will be revealed together with 2 versions of the music video (MV). There will be 2 versions of the MV filmed on the same set, but with no duplicated scenes.
3.  2NE1’s promotional activities will begin on broadcast programs with their debut stage on May17th on SBS Inkigayo.

1TYM’s Teddy, who has brought us “hits” like Tae-yang’s “Only Look at Me” and Uhm Jung-hwan’s “D.I.S.C.O,” has not only written and composed “Fire,” but he is responsible for producing the music videos and 2NE1’s overall style. The song “Fire” will be a “fast hip hop number with a reggae form,” drawing from elements of exotic percussion.

So the promotion is already underway. YG Entertainment has just released the first 20 seconds of the song on the website and with big ol’ ticker counting down the time until their official comeback. So far, it’s nothing much, but the dynamic synth sound and back bass sounds like your typical Big Bang song.
