Rookie group NU’EST recently celebrated the birthdays of members JR and Aron with their fans in an intimate meet-and-greet event hosted at Olleh Square on June 4th.

NU’EST debuted only a few months ago, quickly garnering much success with their debut single “Face.” This fan event will mark the group’s first ever official fan event since their debut on March 15th.

The event was created to give back to the fans for their support for the group. While there was a limit of 1000 entrees for the event, the seating limit in the venue was increased by 300 seats due to popular demand. In order to give all fans a fair chance to be a part of one of the 300 extra attendees, the lucky contestants were chosen by a random drawing.

The event consisted of various events that enabled fans to interact face-to-face with the idols, allowing an intimate bonding between the the boys and the fans. The two birthday boys JR and Aron also provided a special surprise for the fans as they performed a duet version of their song “Face.” Other notable events for the fans included a montage of video clips that showed the members during their trainee days.

It’s been a long time since we saw you last, and we’re so happy to see you all here today,” said NU’EST, “We are so blessed to have you all, and I hope you will stick with us through all the memories we’re going to make together in the future!

Meanwhile, the boys have announced during the event that they will be making a comeback this summer with an upgraded concept and performance.

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2012 – April Week 1

Conversation: SOOMPI

JYP‘s male vocal quartet 2AM is enjoying their spot on our chart at number 1 for the second consecutive week. 2AM made their comeback three weeks ago with their new single "I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me" from their second mini album "F.Scott Fitzgerald’s Way Of Love" and have managed to secure their place at the number one spot with a high score of 937. The song also earned them several awards from weekly music shows.

SHINee‘s "Sherlock" has made an impressive advance as it ranked at number 2 this week. Last week, the song made its entry in our chart at number 10. "Sherlock" is a combination of two tracks from SHINee’s new mini album, "Clue" and "Note" which has never been done before in K-Pop. The number is more of an experimental sound than a remix of two songs.

miss A‘s "Touch" still is battling it up at number 7. The ladies of miss A concluded their promotional activities with goodbye stages last week on music shows.

Big Bang‘s "Fantastic Baby" is still going strong by battling it up for the third place of the podium. Despite it being more than a month since its release, Big Bang’s "Bad Boy" is back in the top 10 at number 9 while "Blue" still makes it in the top 10.

Competition will be tough with CNBLUE making a comeback after a year and a half. CNBlue is making its entry in our chart at number 6 with the catchy number "Hey You." Speaking of tough competition, Shinhwa is back with a bang after a 4 year long hiatus and earns no less than fourteen (magical number for Shinhwa celebrating their 14 years since debut) spots in our chart with "Venus" from their tenth album "The Return."

cid:20120405_ren_minhyun_nuest.jpg

NU’EST‘s Ren and Minhyun will be walking the runway at the ‘F/W 2012-2013 Seoul Fashion Week‘!

On April 5th, Pledis Entertainment revealed that the two were selected as models for designer Park Yoon Soo‘s fashion show, ‘Big Park‘. Despite being just a month into their debut, the boys will be walking the runway on April 7th at the Olympic Park in Seoul.

Park Yoon Soo is known for working exclusively with A-list stars like Kang Dong Won, Cha Seung Won, and Jang Yoon Joo. The fact that he’s enlisted the help of idols definitely says that Ren and Minyun are an exceptional case.

Officials commented, “Ren and Minhyun’s tall heights and impressive visuals were deemed as worthy to stand on the runway with other models.”
