After taking a picture in front of the Notre Dame the boys of Super Junior and SHINee recorded a special video and were spotted by the fans.

ELFs and ShaWols took over Paris during the weekend and a group of lucky ones found the boys at the Notre Dame Cathedral where they were taking pictures and recording a video. The best part of it is that Super Junior and SHINee suddenly started dancing and singing ‘Sorry Sorry’ and ‘Ring Ding Dong’ in front of Notre Dame Cathedral provoking the screams of the fans around.

We might probably see a complete video soon, but so far enjoy this fan cam.

The efforts of European fans have finally paid off, as SM Entertainment revealed that they will indeed be adding one more concert date for “SM Town Live in Paris“.

“SM Town Live in Paris” will be held for two days at the Le Zenith de Paris on June 10th and 11th. The decision was largely influenced by the fact that the first concert sold out within 15 minutes.

As previously reported, 300 upset fans took to the streets of Paris for a flash mob event that caught the attention of Korean media outlets.

SME representatives stated, “TVXQ, Super Junior, SNSD, and other artists who represent SM’s global power will be performing an additional show in Paris. Through the concerts, we hope to help foster the K-Pop wave in Europe.”

Tickets for this second concert will go on sale starting May 16th through Live Nation and FNAC Spectacles and are expected to be sold out on that day.

KPOP’s top three management agencies, SM Entertainment (SMent), YG Entertainment (YGent), and JYP Entertainment (JYPent), have recorded all-time high revenues in 2010, exceeding 150 billion won (137 million USD) in total when combined together, local media Star News Money Today reported in an exclusive report today. Star News acquired revenue audit reports of all three labels through an internal system built by the Financial Supervisory Service from Jan. 1st to Dec. 31st of last year, as they were given access to each company’s total sales, sales revenue, and net profit in the cited period. According to the report, all three companies recorded a surplus in revenue, which was more than 150 billion won (137 million USD) altogether.

SM’s total sales from 2010 were 86.4 billion won (79 million USD), an increase from 61.7 billion won (57 million USD) they recorded in 2009—the highest in company history. Their sales revenue also rose by 15 billion won (14 million USD) to 25.4 billion won (23 million USD) compared to the previous year, while their net profit reached 21.8 billion won (20 million USD), surpassing the 20 billion won mark for the first time as well.

YG too had the best year in terms of total sales and net profit. The hip hop label’s total sales were 44.7 billion won (41 million USD), sales revenue 10.3 billion won (9.4 million USD), and net profit 9.7 billion won (8.9 million USD) in the past year. It only took them one year to break their previous high which was set in 2009.

JYP had the lowest net revenue among the three, but nonetheless put up quite impressive numbers. Their total sales from last year was 21.6 billion won (20 million USD), more than twice the amount from 2009, while their sales revenue came in at 5.9 billion won (5.4 million USD), a remarkable growth from the previous year’s 230 million won (210K USD). What’s more impressive is the fact that JYP was finally able to turn things around and record a surplus of 904 million won (830K USD). In 2009, JYPE ran a deficit of 468 million won (430K USD) due to their investment in Wonder Girls’ US promotions.

SM Entertainment has filed a lawsuit against the unfair judgment which deemed S.M The Ballad’s album as ‘inappropriate for youths’.

According to the Seoul Administrative Court, SM Entertainment filed a lawsuit against the Ministry of Gender, Equality, & Family, stating, ”We cannot accept the judgment which was made with imprecise standards.”

The Ministry of Gender, Equality, & Family deemed S.M The Ballad’s track, “Another Day“, as inappropriate for anyone under legal age due to the lyrics’ references to alcohol (“Drunk on alcohol so that I don’t miss you” and “If you fall asleep drunk, you dream“).

Yet representatives of SM Entertainment are claiming this judgment to be ridiculous. One particular representative expressed their opinion to Star News, saying “We don’t understand why they would flag it for inappropriate content based on references to alcohol. They didn’t consider the charm of the song as a whole. Judging by specific words impedes the writers’ freedom of expression.”

Last November, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun, SHINee’s Jonghyun, TRAX’s Jay and Jino worked together for a project group named ‘S.M The Ballad’. However, since the album was deemed as inappropriate for youths, fans under 19 years old was unable to purchase the album.
