K-pop stars made a big splash on TV programs abroad!

Of course, we're talking about Korea's talented and charming idol stars. Beast, 4minute, and G.NA have arrived in Brazil, a major Hallyu stage in South America!

They were part of Brazil's first-ever Korean concert, and were featured on “Fantastico,” a show on Brazil's largest network Rede Globo.

2NE1's leader CL, meanwhile, was featured on the British news!

She briefly talked about how she felt about 2NE1 being chosen as MTV's "Best New Band in the World," how K-pop was growing in influence, and how she hoped to be a female singer who represented Asia.

Now, let's hear about SHINee and Girls' Generation members who are trying out voice acting.

SHINee's Taemin and Girls' Generation's Sunny are the main voices to a 3D animation movie made with talented staff recruited from around the world.

We hear that there was even a kiss scene involved!

[Interview : Taemin, Member of SHINee] "I still blush when I think about that scene. The kiss scene is at the end of the movie. It was really embarrassing during recording."

[Interview : Yoon Da-hun, Actor] "There are rumors that you two really acted out that scene!"

SHINee's Taemin acts as Johnny, and Sunny acts as Miranda in "The Outback!" Be sure to check it out in theaters next January.

Our top news of the week comes from Hallyu star Jang Keun-suk.

Jang Keun-suk is now a huge star both in Korea and Japan. This week, he made headlines when he donated over US$1 million to his alma mater, the largest donation in the history of the school. He says that he is also planning to create a scholarship foundation in his name.

[Interview : Jang Keun-suk, Actor] "I'm so happy and proud that I can somehow give back the love and encouragement I've received from my fans."

Jang Keun-suk was also ranked first in the Idol & Image DVD category for Japanese chart Oricon's Yearly Video Rankings for 2011. This is the first time a foreign actor has been ranked first in five years. Congratulations!


I can't believe Jang Keun-suk has already donated such a large amount even before graduating.
My alumni officers are always trying to get me to donate more money.
And where would I have been this year without 뿌잉뿌잉!
