June 2009

Let me introduce to you all some real talent (although this guy might already be familiar to most people…..and if he isn’t, then he should be). Meet Thanh Bui:

Bui is a 25-year-old from Abbotsford, Victoria. Born in Adelaide, South Australia, to Vietnamese parents, he moved to Melbourne as a 7-year-old. He was educated at Melbourne High School, graduating in 2000. He was part of the boy-band “North” which toured around Malaysia, but had split up in 2006. Aside from Australian Idol 2008 (eliminated during Top 8 Results Night) he is also the director and vocal coach of the International Artist Academy under Yin Yang Productions (founded by Bui along with partner Alfred Tuohey). Bui & Tuohey have also composed songs for popular Asian bands such as Arashi, KAT-TUN, DBSK/TVXQ, etc. (more…)

Remember how I said that Ho Quynh Huong’s movie was revealed to only be directed by a Korean director with no intentions of being released anywhere else other than VietNam? Well I lied. (more…)

the men

But, they’re almost there.

In the meantime, they could’ve at least photoshopped some fake ones on for their new set of teaser photos. I don’t feel very teased yet :/. Oh the poor men… (more…)
