Hey! Say! CONTEST Regarding Changes & Updates

Hey! Say! CONTEST has been getting a lot of notice! Thank you everyone! But not as many entries as we wanted! We want to reach at least 100! So in order to reach that I've decided to extend the deadline to August 15th! Hopefully, that's enough time for people to make more entries!

Also for the prizes. I was only able to obtain DCT, Your Seed, & MnSB Limited Edition. Ultra Music Power Limited Edition CD will be replaced not to worry! I deeply apologize as I could not get my hands on the first single. If you are the winner I will inform you what I will replace it with.

Truly sorry for the inconvenience! Please keep sending in entries and show your support!

Kari's Tired Of Updating?

It's harder than you think to update. So maybe I'll take a break a little longer than expected.

I blog about idols I admire, for the pure truth that they all inspire me. Many of you know it's my own dream to make my debut within a girl group. (Whether under a Korean or Japanese label I'm still unable to decide). I would love to audition somewhere, but truthfully I just don't have the transportation to attend them.

I appreciate that there are the few people that truly support my dream. I guess updating news on latest idols has me wanting to stop because I want to be in their position as well. I'll do my best to update ASAP, until then I'll be practicing!

Big congrats to Mr Children, Exile, & Dreams Come True(!) for continuing to prove that they are the best that Japan has to offer! Also a special congrats to a couple of my personal favorites Koda Kumi & Ayumi!

This is quite the big news in Korean Entertainment (& Japan) for TVXQ to have reached the top 10. I love the guys and all, but I myself am surprised. Considering they are the only non-Japanese group to have made it to the top 10! (Though their album "Share The World/We Are made it to 15th place). Amazing job guys! Keep on making us proud!

-KAT-TUN had 237,000 sales for "Break the Records -by you & for you-"
-Utada had 228,000 sales for "This is The One."
