Giving encouragement to the young students, freshly enrolled, SM Entertainment rep, Lee Soo Man, returned to Seoul National University to welcome the incoming class of 2013.
On March 4, Lee Soo Man stood at the podium as an alumnus from the class of 1971. He gave the students four keywords to remember – pride, challenge, personal responsibility, and social responsibility
“When you focus on something you’re interested in, passion begins to grow. Passion gives birth to effort, which leads to genius. I believe that genius isn’t innate, but something that can be learned through effort,” said Lee Soo Man. “To a person with passion, an opportunity of success will arrive, and the most successful and meaningful life is when a person enjoys what they’ve chosen because they liked it.”
During the speech, Lee Soo Man quoted Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany.
“A while back, SNSD’s Tiffany said in a thank you speech, ‘It’s already a happy thing to find a job that a person loves, but I am even happier because I’ve received an award while doing that happy thing,’” said Lee Soo Man. ‘”Like this, a successful and meaningful life is to truly enjoy something based on the knowledge and wisdom that a person has worked on.”
He asked the freshmen to continue dreaming and striving for that dream, in order to create a better future for tomorrow.
Sunny’s figure gains attention @ SM Art Exhibition Poster Photo-shoot.
She was seen sitting on the ‘S’ of SM’s logo, crossing her legs elegantly while showing off her sexy figure. She may be short, but she sure has the right body to make up for it!
SMTown’s shout-out to the I AM DVD coming out on November 6 in USA! Along with previews of the awesome movie, there are also short clips of f(x)’s Amber, Super Junior’s Kyuhyun… and last but not least SNSD’s Seohyun speaking in English with a Mnet microphone!

Guess who recently appeared on a short segment of ‘We Got Married’, a variety show where K-idols virtually date each other? Sunny, Hyoyeon and Yoona did! The awesome staff of ‘We Got Married’ place a banner at Seoul Olympic Stadium (where SM artists were holding their concert) that listed the requirements needed for idols to appear on the show.
1. Cannot currently be in a relationship.
2. Must be able to show their face without makeup and their height without insoles.
3. Can stay faithful while married.
4. Must be willing to honestly show everything about themselves, without hiding anything.
According to our danshin (short) Sunny, she can’t NOT wear insoles so she was out. Geez, who cares about your height when you’re an adorable aegyo queen? As for Hyoyeon, she was unable to attend because she can’t show her face without make-up. Why oh why, Hyoyeon?! You’re beautiful, dancing queen, with or without make-up. Having you on ‘We Got Married’, well, that would be an honour! I can understand why Yoona didn’t attend though, because she joked that ‘she would not be able to stay faithful during her virtual marriage’. Dead OTPs, anyone? ;)
Some time later, members of other bands also appeared. SHINee’s Taemin asked Super Junior’s Sungmin who he would like to date, and Sungmin’s honest reply was.. SUNNY! SunSun couple for the win! <3
