Super Junior Member Choi Siwon’s Nickname Is “BoA’s Manager”

On the latest episode of SBS‘s “Thank You” that aired on August 9, singer BoA and actors Son Hyun Joo and Moon Jung Hee embarked on a special retreat. On that day, BoA invited close friend and Super Junior member Choi Siwon to join her on her retreat.

Regarding his invite, Choi Siwon shared, “When others see BoA, they might get the impression that she is very strong. However, when you get to know her, she has her vulnerable side too, and she’s also the type that needs someone to protect and look after her. Sometimes I get referred to as ‘BoA’s manager.’”

BoA also chimed in saying, “There was this one time I told Choi Siwon about something that was making me depressed, and he brought me something in a black plastic bag. Inside were firecrackers. That night, we shot off firecrackers together to lift my spirits.”

Upon hearing about their close friendship, Moon Jung Hee teased them saying, “Is that something you do as friends?” Choi Siwon replied, “Yeah, people always doubt that we’re only friends. But that’s all we are.”

Netizens commented, “Aw, BoA must have been touched by Choi Siwon’s gesture” and “BoA and Choi Siwon seem like great friends.”

120807 SM to Set up SMTOWN Museum in Los Angeles

Planting K-Pop on US soil, SM Entertainment announced its plans to create the SMTOWN Museum in Los Angeles.

On August 7, SM Entertainment revealed that it will be building a place for US residents to experience hallyu in Los Angeles. The new SMTOWN Museum (tentative name) will be located at 6th and Oxford in Koreatown.

“We’ve been planning for a long time to create a place where residents in Hollywood could experience hallyu, but we decided that it was more meaningful to bring US residents and tourists who were interested in hallyu to LA’s Koreatown,” said the agency.

“You can say that this construction of the SMTOWN Museum and its entertainment spaces is the first step for the new future of hallyu.”

SM Entertainment also added that it will do its best to make this new museum into a hallyu landmark in the US and help hallyu grow.

The new building at 6th and Oxford was purchased through SM Entertainment USA and will include a museum, a Korean restaurant, a space of entertainment with holograms and diverse contents.

The opening day has yet to be announced.
