[spoiler2=SE7EN in US?!?]
Se7en Stops Activies in Korea & Stays in USA for 3 Months
Singer SE7EN (22, Choi Dong Wook) will temporarily stop all activites in Korea to prepare for his debut in the US.
YG Family, SE7EN'S respective company, has expressed online on the 13th, after this week, SE7EN will suspend all his activites in Korea. We were planning to promote another title song, but because we want to achieve this bigger goal, we hope all fans can understand and forgive us.
They also said, because we weren't satisfied with the music video with the new director, we decided to film it again with the director for 'Nan Arayo'. Although we have wasted alot of production money, we do not want to broadcast anything that we are unsatisfied with.
While SE7EN was promoting his third album, he was also in the mid-production of his fourth album. It is prearranged for him to release his fourth album in October of this year. The title song for the fourth album has already been chosen.
After the end of his activites on June 17th, SE7EN will be staying in the US for three months.

[spoiler2=Se7en Poised to Enter Billboard Chart Next Year]
Singer Seven will release a single early next year with the purpose of entering the U.S. Billboard chart and emerging as a globally renowned star.
According to YG Entertainment, which opened an office in Los Angeles, USA in April, Seven will announce a single with English vocals early next year to establish his presence in the American music market. A person from YG Entertainment said the singer plans to release three or four singles and a full-length album in the United States next year, and that the new songs will be similar in style to those of top American artists Usher and Justin Timberlake.
YG Entertainment America has hired several American music producers to ensure Seven’s success in the United States, and even chose Morgan Carey, the brother of pop diva Mariah Carey, as its partner because Carey is known to have a vast human network in the American music market.
Seven’s agency says the singer will continue to make all kinds of endeavors to reap positive results in the United States, following his successful career in the Japanese music market, where his three singles and one full-length album made it to the top-ten of the Oricon music chart.
Singer Kim Beom-soo is the only South Korean artist to make it to the Billboard chart so far. Kim’s song “Hello Good-bye Hello,” sung with English vocals, took the 51st spot on the Billboard Single Sales 100 chart in December 2001 through a record label that his agency established in the United States. Another South Korean singer, Mink, who debuted in the United States via a Japanese record company, topped the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart in March, making headlines both in Korea and Japan.
Prior to his debut in the United States, Seven will release his fourth album in Korea in October.

[spoiler2=Seven to Give Solo Concert after 4 Months]
Singer Seven, who will release a new album next month, will give a solo concert October 28 after four months off.
The concert will serve as the finale of the 2006 Seoul Music Festival, which kicks off October 8 for a 22-day run. The festival, the second of its kind, will feature various artists who will stage performances in succession to revive the stagnated domestic music industry.
The festival received a favorable response from audiences last year, as they were able to see the performances of singers Lee Seung-chul, Shin Seung-hoon, Rain, BoA and TVXQ for 35,000 won per ticket and enjoy beer free of charge.
Seven¡¯s upcoming concert carries special significance because the singer is preparing to debut in the United States and plans to focus on his overseas activities in the near future rather than perform in Korea.
Last month, Seven enraptured Japanese audiences when he performed in Tokyo and Osaka as part of the World Tour marking the 10th anniversary of YG Entertainment, his agency.
At the upcoming concert, the singer will sing songs from his new album and previous hit songs.
Aside from Seven, the 2006 Seoul Music Festival will feature such artists as Kim Hyun-chul, DJ D.O.C., Lee Seung-hwan, Sung Shi-kyung, YB Big Mama, Next, TVXQ and M (Lee Min-woo).
The festival is being sponsored by the Seoul municipal government and the charity organization The Chest of Love, which has also staged a campaign inviting visitors to bring used books that will be donated to the needy.

[spoiler2=Yang Hyun Suk Se7en will not be acting in Palace 2]
"Se7en's drama performance will not happen."
YG Entertainment's Yang Hyun Suk has revealed the official message on Se7en's rumored leading role in the drama "Palace 2".
Yang has posted a message in the YG homepage last September 29 regarding news last 28th that Se7en will be acting in a drama. Yang conveyed that Se7en acting in it is impossible and that no one has been decided to star in the drama.
Top star Se7en has been receiving offers to act in dramas and in the big screen but he has refused for he reasons that he wants to concentrate as a singer.
Yang accepts the fact that many singers are venturing into acting. He revealed that Se7en was offered to act in a drama and a movie but they are still thinking hard if Se7en will really pursue an acting career. The YG director also said that acting can help Se7en branch out into the Asian market.
"So is Se7en going to act in the future? What kind of drama and what kind of role will be fit for the singer?" Se7en's move into acting is surely something they have to think about.

[spoiler2=Se7en Set to Make U.S. Debut]
Singer Se7en on Monday announced his plan to cooperate with the producer of American artist Usher to make his debut in the U.S. pop market. He made the announcement at a press conference in New York at the Imagine Asia TV Theater. Starting late this month, he will begin work on his first single album to be released in the U.S. early next year.
YG Entertainment, Se7en’s agency, said that it had signed a contract with a U.S. entertainment company to promote Se7en in the country. The company is headed by Mark Shimmel, the famous producer who produced records of such famous artists as Usher, Tony Blackstone, and TLC.
Shimmel designated Rich Harrison as a producer for the Korean singer. Harrison won the producer award at the Grammy Awards in 2004 by producing Beyonce Knowles’ “Crazy in Love.” Other renowned singers he worked with include Janet Jackson, Usher, Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lopez.
“Mark Shimmel has seen Se7en's great potential to succeed in the U.S. He took a close look at Se7en’s performances in Korea and said that he could not believe there was such a great singer so talented at both dancing and singing live in Asia,” YG Entertainment said. “Rich Harrison also said that he could see why Shimmel decided to work with Se7en. A famous rapper will participate in Se7en’s U.S debut single.”
Meanwhile, the Korean entertainment company will hold tour concerts to celebrate its 10th anniversary in three U.S. major cities--Washington D.C. on Oct. 18, New York at the Madison Square Garden on Oct. 19 and LA at the Grand Olympic Auditorium on Oct. 21. The two U.S. producers will attend the New York concert.

[spoiler2=YGs message translation 2006.10.23]
Everyone’s well, right? I’m Yang Hyun Suk.
Today I will be talking about Se7en.
At the moment, YG family is in the US for the Washington, New York, LA for the YG family 10th anniversary concerts. Actually I was going to go together but because of Se7en's 4th album work, I had to stay behind and couldnt catch the plane.
The concerts have now finished and most of the singers will return to seoul soon but Se7en will be going back to Washington today to record the first single which will be released in the US next year Spring.
About Se7en's debut into America
I think everyone found out about the news through different pathways
Mark Shimmel, who will be conducting Se7en's debut into America, is the representative of the famous record company LAFACE. He is known for the discovery of the wellknown Usher, Toni Braxton, TLC etc. Recently, he is the producer of Jay-Z, who has just been to korea.
Also, Rich Harrison, who won a grammy award in 2004 for Beyonce's crazy in love will be producing Se7en's first single and has produced for superstars Janet Jackson, usher, Alicia keys, Jennifer lopez, Christina Aguilera etc.
Although it has been hard to obtain a chance to enter the American market, fortunately we've met a good partner and we've be able to obtain this chance.
To be honest, compared to the fact that the chance to debut into America has been obtained, the thing which makes us more happy is that se7en has gotten recognition from the best of the US music world.
A few days ago after the new york concert, Se7en met Mark Shimmel for the first time and he said to SE7en that it seems like everything should turn out fine. To be honest, there are no words which could be better than that^^ Se7en's debut into the US will be next year's spring and in the remaining time I will be working with Mark Shimmel about se7en's promotion.
The release of Se7en's 4th album Se7olution
Se7en’s 4th album Se7olution will be released on the coming November 1st.
Se7olution puts together the meaning of Se7en and development, evolution.
There will be a total of 14 tracks and there will be 2 songs which will be written by Se7en himself and many songs which he wrote the lyrics to.
This time Se7en's 4th album title song is called '라 라 라' (English translation would be La La La ), a slow tempo song. It seems like there will be a lot of people who will be surprised that Se7en will be using a slow song for his title track , the more surprising thing will be that we will be preferably avoiding dancing.
The reason for that is because from the past 2nd album title song Passion, digital single Crazy and the 3rd album's title song I know, in the past few years, Se7en has shown a visual side to him with dance that has a strong hip hop rhythm.
This time for the 4th album, with colorfulness, instead of satisfying the eyes, we wanted to make an album which would satisfy the ears and the mind. Because of this, we are not planning a showcase for the album.
Sometimes when composers from the outside come to the recording studio for se7en's recording, they say 'He sings better than I thought he does'
Is this praise? Or is it insult? We listen to this without knowing what to think… and sometimes I see that when se7en sings big mama’s resignation, or sings wheesung, gummy’s songs, there is a unexpected response so I think that the change se7en needs the most now is not a se7en with a strong rhythmic dance but to show the best side to his voice with a good melody and song.
That's because the majority of normal people remember se7en the most from his 1st album's 'Wah joh'
Title song La La La came about as se7en was preparing for his American debut and learning English, living in America for 2 months. The song La La La was recorded in America with Teddy.
Should one be happy...or sad..… although it's confusing, the title song has come about
Title song La la la's lyrics are written by Big mama's Lee Young Hyun and will be promoted together with 'I will do well'(cecilia's note: it can also mean, iw ill be good to you, I will be good etc, depending on the context) which was compsed by her. I think that many people will like these songs which se7en has received from her for the first time.
The filming of the 2 parts of the music video have all finished and will be released on the 1st of November at the same time as the album.
Se7en’s comeback will be on the 4th November!
About Se7en acting in a drama……
It is a decision which was made with lots of struggle.
During this time, I've asked se7en a few times about acting and his response every time has been that he wants to concentrate as a gasoo and wants to try acting after the 4th album. Although that is the fact, the plan has been brough forward a bit but it came about after the completion of the recording of the 4th album.
Although because Se7en has had an image that he will not act and there is no way to avoid the dissatisfaction and seeming irony who have been voiced, it seems that se7en himself will be the one to solve the problem. If he does well, then these complaints will disappear, if not, then the voices will become louder. The only thing I can do is to give him a vote of support with 'I believe in Se7en'
The drama will start shooting from the beginning of November til February next year and during this time, 4th album activities will be held at the same time with weekend TV activities.
That's all I am going to say today, sorry for saying too much
