SNSD‘s Jessica was picked as the #1 artist who fans would like to share an umbrella with.
On http://www.bugs.co.kr, the poll “Which artist would you like to share an umbrella with” was enforced and over 50% chose Jessica, and the results were overwhelming.
Recently, SNSD has been regaining popularity through ‘Tell Me Your Wish’. Netizens made wishes through the song title that “They want to give Jessica the umbrella and get hit by the rain”.
Second place was Lee Seungki, participating in shows like KBS 2TV ‘Happy Sunday’, ‘1 Day 2 Nights’, and SBS Special Weekend Project ‘Splendid Heritage’, and is rising to fame. Netizens even displayed their affection by saying, “I would even hold the umbrella for him.”
Third place was 2NE1’s Sandara Park. From a new girl group and as much as receiving stable fame, she received the most number of votes as a new star. Fourth place was SHINee‘s Taemin, who was able to grab female fans’ hearts through ‘Juliette’. Fifth place was 2PM’s Chansung and sixth place was 4minute’s Hyuna.

SNSD, who has been surrounded by controversy due to plagiarism claims, have found that it was actually the female singer from Uzbekistan that used the SNSD without permission, and have received a huge shock.
The song had been recently circulating around the the internet titled ‘Tell Me Your Wish Original Song’ and caused a stir among netizens. The song ‘Ruqsga Tushgin’ performed by female Uzbekistan singer Dineyra was uploaded on to YouTube in April, sparking rumours that SNSD were plagiarising music.
However, it was revealed that it was in fact Dineyra, not SNSD that had used the song without permission.
Universal Music Publishing Group, who own the rights to ‘Tell Me Your Wish’ stated on the 2nd of July that “We do not know who Dineyra from Uzbekistan is, and we have never given her permission to use this song.” and continued to say, “Dineyra’s version is clearly a case of plagiarism.” They also stated, “We will pursue legal action over this blatant plagiarism.” and vented their frustration.
SM Entertainment also released a statement, saying, “The rights to SNSD‘s ‘Tell Me Your Wish’ were bought officially from Universal Music Publishing group by SM, and received permission to release it for the first time in the world. We received a demo from the Dsign team, and SM adjusted the song, editing the melody and lyrics to create the new song.” clarifying the rumours.

A fancam taken before SNSD peformed ‘Etude’ on Music Core last June 27 captured Yoona lifting Tiffany’s skirt and looking so shocked at what she saw underneath. Yoona then can be seen mouthing ‘You didn’t wear it?’. She was of course referring to their ‘shorts’ that they have to wear underneath their skirts to avoid flashing the audience during their performance. Yoona obviously worried, Sooyoung who’s standing next to her grabbed Tiffany and turned her over to check if anything’s visible. After checking, Sooyoung and Yuri who’s behind Yoona assured an embarrassed Tiffany that ‘it’ won’t show.
When the video was uploaded over the internet, fans had mixed reactions over this issue. Some fans were appalled that Yoona would dare lift Tiffany’s skirt in public and on stage! They thought she was rude for doing this especially since she’s younger than Tiffany. Others though defended her, saying Yoona looked genuinely worried and that she was just being a good friend trying to prevent possible ‘accidents’ to happen. Other fans also criticized Tiffany for being ‘slutty’, not wearing the shorts on purpose, etc. Sigh. Koreans are so hard to please.
If you ask me, this seems a perfectly normal situation between these 9 girls – checking and making sure that they’re all ok and everything’s workin fine. As for Yoona flipping Tiffany’s skirt, she probably notice that something’s amiss that’s why she checked but she shouldn’t have lifted her skirt right then and there. And Tiffany should have worn the shorts if she didn’t want her panties exposed to the world. Hope they’re careful next time.
Check out the video and decide for yourself. The ‘lifting’ starts at 2:00.
