Makes me wonder what rubric K-League clubs use when deciding who to hire for the in-game entertainment.

Girl bands win soldiers' hearts

K-pop girl bands visit not just concert halls and TV networks to meet fans -- the bands also visit soldiers in military camps, mostly in remote areas.

Korean military broadcaster K-Force Media has selected K-pop girl bands 9muses, Hellovenus and BESTie as the top bands that are the most popular around military camps, according to a media report. The bands, despite their cute image, slim physique and regimental dancing, are "not" A-lister K-pop stars like Girls' Generation, Wonder Girls and Girls' Day and are not as busy.

The report quoted an insider from the broadcaster a not-so-tight schedule was one condition required by bands wishing to visit military camps to win soldiers' hearts. A-lister girl bands are also too pricey for military camps to hire, so those with a "mediocre" level of popularity were the favorite choices, the report said.

It said some rookie girl bands sought opportunities to perform at the camps before debuting on TV.

Fans of Bora, this may be up your alley:

K-pop stars lock horns in sports showdown

K-pop stars will do battle in the "Idol Star Athletics Championships" that will kick off in two weeks and air on TV during the Lunar New Year in February.

The 12th championship will be shot in Goyang Gymnasium, Gyeonggi Province, on Jan. 18 and 19 and include sprints, "ssireum," or Korean traditional wrestling, archery and futsal.

TV network MBC, the host since September 2010, is accepting online applications from fans hoping to watch the games in the stadium.

The event is held twice a year -- on the Korean Thanksgiving, Chuseok, and the Lunar New Year.

Past championships have shed light on the stars' athletic ability.

Bora of Sistar showed she can run and do archery by winning the women's sprint events in the first and second championships and advancing to the women's final in archery in the 10th. Her performance increased her band's reputation and, according to Herald Pop, created a saying among K-pop girl singers: "Do it like Bora."

Kaeun, a former member of girl band Dal Shabet, has won the women's sprint events at three championships. Dongjun from boy band ZE:A shone in men's sprint events.

Minho from boy band SHINee was the star of the second championship, winning the men's high jump, 50-meter swim and 50-meter hurdle.

I will not go in order to avoid having to scratch my eyes out, then shooting my brains out because the images do not want to go away.

The only thing worse than average Korean girls doing anything active is Korean girls who have been trained to "look cute" in everything they do and are so skinny that touching them might cause serious injury, trying to be active.

Then again, the sight of someone being trampled might be fun. As much fun as when I saw an Anyang basketball player flatten three cheer leaders who were to stupid to move when the giant black guy came running at them. Aah, good memories.
There are two routes to success in football. One is being good. The other is being lucky. You need both to win a championship. But you need only one to win a match.

Was looking for something else and found what might be the saddest endorsement so far. Brave Girls for Chungju Hummel in I think 2012...

The boy's futsal was on while I was out at dinner and it looks like they had 하석주 and 이천수 there as coaches. No idea who any of the idol singers were in the teams, though.

Seems this is to celebrate Lee Dong Gook and "Guckkasten" being selected as Jeonju's "Ambassadors" for next year's Under-20 World Cup when presumably Jeonju is one of the host cities. That band is very popular - they came to the racecourse last year and not for the usual Sunday afternoon arse-shaking during racing (thank goodness) but a proper evening concert where people had to have tickets and stuff. They weren't the only ones performing but there was something like 10,000 people there.

It's not really the sort of thing we want to be encouraging in K-League though.

Suwon FC have gone into famous folk overload for this weekend's relegation derby.. they've got K-Pop girl group Bad Kids, rock band Transfixion, actor Ryu Jun-yeol and singing actress type Hong Jin-young all turning up to say a big hello. Free t-shirts as well if you get there early, that's a good day all round really even if the football will probably ruin it.

The dull side of K-Pop, but it is K-League related...

In football and K-pop, like father, like son
Nov 29 2016

When Gangwon FC of the second-tier K-League Challenge took down the winningest club in the top-tier K-League Classic, Seongnam FC, to earn its promotion to the top league, Choi Yun-kyum, the team’s coach, was ecstatic.

The skipper had been waiting for this moment for the past four years. But more elated than the manager himself about the promotion was his son Choi Min-ho, better known by the public as singer-turned-actor Minho of K-pop boy group SHINee.

When the JoongAng Ilbo met the Chois before the premiere of Minho’s latest movie “Derailed,” the first thing the actor said was how excited he was about his father’s team being promoted to the Classic. He compared it to the first time SHINee topped local music charts.

“It was worth going all the way down to Busan [where Gangwon played the first round of playoffs] to watch my dad’s team play,” Minho said.

“Minho came to the stadium more than 20 times this season despite his busy schedule,” the skipper of Gangwon added. “He came all the way to Chuncheon, Gangneung and Wonju [all located in Gangwon, more than 40 miles north of Seoul]. He was like my lucky charm because the matches he attended, we actually won many of them.”

Choi Yun-kyum, a 54-year-old Daejeon native, is a former footballer himself, having played as a defender back in the days for the Yukong Elephants, the predecessor of Jeju United FC in the K-League Classic, as well as for the Korean national team. He even made an appearance in the 1988 Seoul Olympics, playing for the U-23 team as a wild card.

And like his father, Minho is considered to have one of the best football skills among Korean celebrities. On the television show “Our Neighborhood Arts and Physical Education,” which features celebrities playing various sports, Minho scored two goals against the old boys of FC Seoul.

Choi Tae-uk, a retired winger who played for various Classic elites including FC Seoul, Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors and Ulsan Hyundai FC, can attest to Minho’s football skills. He was one of the FC Seoul veterans who failed to catch the actor’s two shots.

“I wanted to become a professional football player like my dad,” Minho said. “But when I was a fifth grader, he told me he would kick me out of the house if I pursue that dream. That was the first time he disapproved of something I did so I decided to give up the dream.”

“Frankly, I didn’t want him to follow my path,” Coach Choi said. “Back when I was playing, it was difficult to make it in that world, very abusive back in those days. I would stay home for a couple of hours and then be off to training camp. It pained me to see my son asking me to stay over for the night.

“And from the football manager’s point of view, I didn’t think Minho had it in him to make it in that world,” he added. “He is strong-willed, but he had a small frame.”

So instead of representing Korea on the football pitch, Minho went down the path of representing the country on the stage. As a global entertainer, he has four Golden Disk Awards for achievements in the Korean music industry as well as a commendation from the nation’s prime minister.

But when it comes to love for the sport, Minho is second to none. Back in 2012, he was spotted attending a Queens Park Rangers match in London to watch Park Ji-sung play before retirement. “I am an Arsenal fan,” Minho said. “It’s fun when Dad and I watch a game together because he uses football nomenclature like stopper. I tell him these days that they say center back more than stopper.”

Before the season earlier this year, Choi Yun-kyum promised that if Gangwon were promoted to the Classic, he would have SHINee perform a concert. The manager admitted that it was out of impulse. “I didn’t know just how busy my son was,” he conceded.

But Minho said if the schedule allows, and if his fellow members are up for it, he would love to host a concert for his dad.

And one day, just like his father, Minho says he wants to be part of a football club in Korea. “Maybe not as an owner, but at least as an executive,” he said. “But I will always be my dad’s biggest fan.”
