Blind Items Almost Revealed

December 11, 2006

A little background.

In Korea there is an all-girl group which is extremely popular not only in Korea but all over Asia. The girls are all teenagers ranging in age from 15-17 and the image they portray is sexy and their lyrics are as suggestive as lyrics can be in Korea, while at the same time being the innocent virgins they are all supposed to be and the public demands.. All over Asia people, especially teenage boys and girls love this group. They are one of the highest selling groups for 2 or 3 years in a row. The girl who is the subject of our story is 17 at the time. Lets call her "BB."


In the US, you have a singer who is going on tour throughout Asia. He is a rock/rapper and has a reputation for not being innocent and for being an ass. His group is talented and they do very well for themselves. This guy is the typical "rock star" with the attitude and stereotypes to match. He is about 30 at the time this all happens. Lets call him "RR."

It turns out BB is a fan of the music of RR and so at an event in Korea they meet and she is fawning over him as a teenager would when meeting someone she admires or has a crush on. RR is used to having his way with his fans and does not realize that maybe things in Korea are just a little bit different. He just thinks she is another groupie he is trying to get in bed and does not realize that this will be her first time and she considers it much more serious than he does. To him it is one night, to her, she is thinking marriage. One night of sex and he never will think of her again. She will think of him all the time and wonders why he has not returned her calls.

About two months go by and she realizes she is pregnant. This is a BIG problem (no pun intended) Although not reality, the stereotype is that young women remain virgins until they marry. This is even more true of someone who is a celebrity of the stature of BB. She is on posters in every teenagers bedroom in the country and most of Asia. She cannot be pregnant. However, she is and she knows who the father is. BB is part of a huge group and cannot just disappear. She only tells her family and the group’s manager. Not even the rest of the group know exactly what is wrong with her. The only thing they know is there will not be many tv appearances or concerts for the next year. Abortion was never really an option. Adoption is the only option and the adoption must be done outside the country.

BB’s manager finally discovers who the father is and tracks down the management team of the father. Of course RR’s management team has had this problem from other fans. However an abortion is usually the answer given and funds dispersed for this purpose. With BB they have someone who is underage and a huge star in parts of the world and is believable and needs to hide the situation as much as RR"s team wants to. RR agrees to pay for BB to stay in the US to hide at a hotel and to pay the costs for the birth and adoption and anything else that is necessary.

During the pregnancy, BB and RR rarely see each other. BB still wants to be with RR and RR does not have the guts to say he does not want to be with her and so strings BB along for the ride. He gets so caught up in the game that he starts talking about marriage and even adopting the baby himself when it is born. This game goes on until about a month prior to delivery.

At that point in time RR meets someone he wants to be with and totally blows off BB. He does not tell his new flame about BB or the situation being played out. BB tries to get in contact with RR but RR refuses to speak to her. BB is crushed and feels like RR has lied to her and made her even more ashamed to be in a foreign country, hiding out from fans and delivering a baby that no one wants. She feels abandoned and betrayed and alone and attempts suicide. She is rushed to the hospital. She and the baby are saved. She tries to call RR and tell him about the baby, but again he refuses to speak to her. He has someone in his life. He tells the management team to stop paying the bills, but they ignore him because they do not want this to get out. In an interview with a magazine he is quoted as saying he has no kids and no plans on having any. He is just having a good time and enjoying life.

The baby is put up for adoption. BB goes back to Korea where the group breaks up and many of the girls try a solo career. BB steps away from the spotlight even more and remains in seclusion for another year. She is just now trying to reestablish her music career.

RR continues on and becomes even more of an ass. He finds someone else and then someone else and so on. I would tell you what happens in more detail to RR but it would give it away who he is. Needless to say I am not a big fan.

U;Nee is BB and killed herself shortly after this blind item was posted. RR has basically given up music and has now moved on to other projects and I still hate him with a passion. He is working in television and movies now.

Durst

timebob said...

wtf why protect the bastard? You have no problem outing women who have abortions, raped and sodomized..out him already.

not cool E.

The only rock/rappers I can think of is Fred Durst or Kid Rock.

Melissa said...

Poor kid. Both of them.

StewMcG said...

I don't think it's Fred Durst unless Enty is fudging the part about not having kids or having any plans to have any (at the time of this post, he had 2.)

I have no idea who this is but he's a total scumbag who needs to be outed.

figgy said...

Okay, I will probably be blasted for this. But I simply cannot muster the outrage toward RR that Enty is feeling there.

First, this sounds like a young woman who unfortunately had some serious mental health issues to begin with. Second, if she was not prepared by her family or even manager that in her position she might encounter this type of situation, that is their failing.

Yes, RR is an immoral asshole with no character. But so are scads of men who impregnate women and flee. And especially if they have that kind of unlimited sex opportunity before them.

I'm not excusing what he did, just saying that many other young women have been through this but not killed themselves. Someone should have better prepared her for the assholes she would meet.

caralw said...

Her wiki page doesn't mention she was part of a group, but a solo singer.

Sarah said...

she was 25 not 17

Kelly said...

He mentions that RR has a group, so it probably isn't a solo artist like Kid. Kid would never anyway. He had a child then too.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Fred Durst used to go out with that Superhead chick around that time, didn't he? Or maybe it was before.

Alexis said...

17 at the time this happened not when the blind was written

Alexis said...

It definitely seems like Enty hates Kid Rock but he didn't have a "group" and had a child.

StuRat said...

Vanilla Ice-He would have been 31 when she was 17, and does reality TV shows (remodeling. house flipping) now.

sandybrook said...

Hmm Kid Rocks real name is Robert Ritchie but he really hasn't moved away from music and neither has Durst to be into Tv and movies in fact he has threatened to reform Limp Bizkit. But otherwise I have no idea.

Biloxi Native said...

Cee-Lo, perhaps? He was a member of Goodie Mob and Gnarls Barkley. I don't know if he has kids. Just thinking out loud.

TanGyal said...

Yeah I saw RR and immediately thought of Kid Rock, since his name is Robert Ritchie, but yeah, he still does music...hmm...whomever this is is an asshole of epic proportions.

A RESIDENT said...

Ice Cube

AKM said...

If she passed away at 25 in 2007 and she was 17 at the time of this blind, this happened in or around 1999, correct? I don't know if that helps...

sandybrook said...

I'm sorta leaning towards Rob Zombie but he has a kid maybe not back in 2006 though.

Unknown said...

@figgy - I agree. What do people think he should have done?? Married her?. She was a one night stand. Sounds like they both did what they needed to do for their careers (assuming she wouldn't/couldn't get an abortion.) Although enty puts a lot of background on her group and culture in Korea I doubt that the dumbass RR had any clue and was just out for some pussy- like millions of other guys would. Sounds like he handled it like most others in his position would - cold as that sounds. Tragic that she couldn't deal with the consequences of her actions but what do people think he should have done? Befriending her would have probably only complicated things. Sounds like adoption was the best choice (assuming she had no parental support and forced into it.)

JoElla said...

@Figgy, it is totally different in Korea. The people are modern, but society won't grow with them.

I was reading in a magazine (I can't remember which, but think it was Marie Claire or Allure) the growing trend in Asia is not dating. Women don't want the hassle of nowhere leading relationships, and the possiblity of being "trampy" while guys are not looking for "marriage" and kinda given up. Also many women are now enjoying the freedom of their careers, and the the perks. They also don't want to give all of that up for marriage.

Both sides are tired of the traditional standards, and would love it to change.

I can understand BB's mindset, as tragic as it was, my heart hurts for her.

And I am in no way, shape or form excusing RR's behavior. He didn't have to be that heartless. And I really hope this haunts him.

JoElla said...

By heartless, I mean stringing her along.

hothotheat said...

Marky Mark?

This happened in 1998, Durst would have been 28 years old. Walberg was 27. Walbergs first kid wasn't born until 2003. I can't imagine a Kpop singer into Durst/limp bizkit.

Unknown said...

well, sad in general. but show biz is the same everywhere. and you get drilled to understand the game.

ok, got pregnant. and ok, korean society is different. but crisis management is the same. both parties know exactly how it works, and both had the funds to do so.

sad, in general. other than that, she should have got better help in korea. it is not that she was the first ever to go through that.

Kelsey said...

This is an odd one because U;Nee was never part of a group. She was an actress in the late 90s and then a solo singer beginning in 2003. I remember seeing her in the movie "Seventeen" because I was a fan of another K-pop group who starred in that. If it is U;Nee and she was 17 at the time, that means this happened in 1998. She also had a movie come out in 1999, Jiljoo, and according to her Daum page was in 2 more TV shows in 98 and 99. The gap seems to be from then until 2003 when her first album comes out, which would also not coincide with the comment in the original blind that in 2006 "...She is just now trying to reestablish her music career."

Maybe the details were fudged to confuse but, it just seems weird. Whether or not this is her, U;Nee (whose real name is Lee Hye-ryun) had a tragic life and even sadder existence as a K-pop star, as many females do. I don't think anyone can "prepare" someone for what that life is like, especially in Korea.

hollywood dime said...

It's Durst. He directs film and tv now.

CJ said...

Kid Rock has kids, too, and has talked about them in interviews, so I don't think it's him or Fred Durst. But they do seem like the most likely candidates... going to keep digging!

hothotheat said...

I don't think any one can be prepared to be told to F*cuk Off when they find themselves pregnant.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

What about the Linkin Park lead singer? Chester Bennington. Huge in 2006. The age fits and he sings and raps in the songs.
Rob Zombie is not a rapper. Durst is a cunt> but had kids at the time.

Unknown said...

Man... This makes me sad.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Oh wait, Chester had kids during the time of this blind, Meh

Unknown said...

I might get blasted but I'll throw this out there. Anyone think that it is possible that the true villains(or at least another set of villians) in this tale might have been her management and or parents. Not much detail about them in this blind which doesn't sound as good as going after the heartless celeb father. Who knows what kind of pressures and guilt were laid on her by her people- yes a lot of societal guilt also but what kind of support did she get from management and family/parents?

saycheese said...

i like the Marky Mark and the funky bunch guess--and enty def doesn't like whalburg, so that's a clue

Now! said...

What about Mike Patton, the lead singer from the group Faith No More? Very big for awhile, talented backing musicians. Patton was a well-known jerk.

Dani D$ said...

Mark Wahlberg? He use to rap & travel as Marky Mark & the Funky Bunch. He's heavily into acting right now. And he WAS & STILL IS an asshole. This could def be him!

Someone Said said...

Mark McGrath.

Henriette said...

I like the Mark McGrath guess.

Aviation Honey said...

Katrina Caves said...

Marilyn Manson.

kelli grrrl said...

I'm liking Marky Mark for this, too.

Pip said...

RR is still the asshole for stringing her along. Yes, he is partly to blame in this, and is one of the "villains". She was 17, and her culture is quite different than ours. I don't see why people are trying to not lay any blame on this guy.

trogdor said...

Interesting you say this since Limp Bizkit's manager is Ross Robinson. RR?

Sian said...

There is nothing on her wiki age aout u;nee being part of a group, yet the first para of the blind is all about a group - anyone else confused?

Unknown said...

Pip- you are right- he was an asshole for stringing her along (if he really did, I wonder about the source-her people?) and does deserve blame but don't think he has sole responsibility for this tragedy.

hollywood dime said...

Mark walhberg would be a good choice IF he wasn't already acting in 1999 had long stopped doing the rap thing. Fred durst, however was HUGE in 1999 and doing world tours and he's producing a new tv show. Food for thought.

Count Jerkula said...

I'm digging the Marky Mark guess. Isn't he the dude everyone thought was flying in hookers because he don't like Asian chicks? I could see him being gun shy after this.

Also, any off the boat Koreans I've met outside of a massage parlor are VERY religious, so I could see a chick thinking boning would lead to marriage. No drinking, no smoking, no cursing, no gambling. I asked the one guy what he did for fun, and he told me take my money. With the Pork Roll, Egg and Cheese sandwiches he was selling, dude took a lot of my money.

Count Jerkula said...

Oh, and how many of the posts on this site have lead to suicide or attempted suicide? Paris Jackson, this Korean broad. Yer gettin it done Enty, good job.

Kelsey said...

@Sian, yes. And if this really is U;nee, the dates don't match up either.

snookiemonster said...

Beastie boys?

Amber said...

I was thinking Fred Durst, because of the rock/rap genre, and the "someone else and then someone else" - remember he was publicly talking about smashing Britney, and I think Christina. He was just always kind of a scum bag, and based on some things Kelsey is saying it sounds like some of the dates might be fudged.

Amber said...

Oh, re: the dates being fudged, when this ACTUALLY happened he may not have had his daughter yet. Just saying you don't plan/want to have kids doesn't mean it doesn't happen anyway (obviously).

KLM said...

Mark McGrath (Sugar Ray) seems to work for the timing (he would have been about 34) / no kids (until recently)... His big hit was in 1997, so he would have seen fairly relevant in 2000 (when U;Nee was 17).

chopchop said...

I thought of Mark McGrath right away.

Smokey772 said...

I hate all the commentors that call bullshit, but I'm about to do that right now. The above commentors are correct that U;Nee was never in a girl group and none of this makes any sense. She was an actress during the time this and in a couple shows and movies when she was 17.

So you're either using U;nee's death as a scapegoat for an almost reveal, which is disgusting or your source lied. Either way, bullshit all around. At least google your subjects before posting a blind item reveal about someone.

auntliddy said...

horrible story about a real douchbag guy. Poor girl didnt know what hit her. big culture shock. Hope the baby is happy.

KLM said...

Sian, Kelsey and Smokey772's comments all interested me, so I read more about U;nee - now I am totally confused, too. How can this be a reveal of U;nee??? She was never in a huge pop group... And as Smokey pointed out, the dates of her filmography don't match up for when she was out of the public eye - which could have potentially been when she was "training" to be a singer from 2001 to 2003.

But if that were true, then this blind wouldn't be nearly as salacious since she wasn't in a huge pop group and wouldn't have been under age at the time of the pregnancy.

So now I am totally perplexed as to how this reveal is based on reality. Odd.

Unknown said...

The other thing is though that the guy may not have wanted kids then or not in those circumstances or wanted it on his terms.

Because the number of men who say they don't want kids and end up having them with another woman down the line or marrying women with kids is a long list.

Particularly hard for the ex wives and girlfriends where that issue was the reason for the breakup, he was steadfast on not having kids, she needed to move on if she wanted a family and the idiot ends up knocking up the next broad and marrying her.

Unknown said...

FYI Wikipedia should also not be considered the definitive or even authoritative word on many many subjects since anyone can submit information to those entries.

Kelsey said...

@Tina, agreed, but all this information is coming from Lee Hye-ryun's Daum.net page, http://movie.daum.net/movieperson/Biography.do?personId=15642&t__nil_Biography=tabName

Daum is similar to Yahoo with email, messaging, blogs, forums, news, etc.

makaveli said...

I smell a rat...





About halfway down the page

SueRH said...

Mark McGrath isn't really working in movies. Looks like he had two bit parts back in 2003.

makaveli said...

Sorry about half way down

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2007_01_21_archive.html

KLM said...

Um, well that is interesting, makaveli!!!

Unknown said...

Makaveli - wtf!! Something is fishy here. If you don't want to go to makaveli's link it is basically enty talking about recent suicide of Korean Unee and him saying that she was not the subject of long blind about Korean singer (I assume this blind just revealed). Enty needs to get stories straight.

makaveli said...

I dont comment much but this as a LONG time CDAN reader, the fact that this isnt the same Enty that drew me here is becoming more and more obvious. I used to salivate for the reveals....now???....ho hum.

Lawdy Miss Scarlett said...

Mike Patton of Faith No More came out and talked about how he hated touring w/ GnR, 'cause of Axl's homophobia. So he didn't get her pregnant.

Bacon Ranch said...

Great catch makaveli, I guess the Enterns have just given up that whole 'research the site first' thing ENTirely.

Meanie Rhysie said...

Very interesting, makaveli!

Leisa said...

nice one @makaveli

PookieTwo said...

The Enterns here have been really sloppy with a lot of stuff. Use the archive much lol? Too busy trawling DM and now twitter for material for blinds.

Being as this was from original Enty it was very well probably true or partially true in most details, but now we'll never know who it was really about.

Lisa said...

This should be revealed unless we can be told a good reason not to.

Anonymous said...

the old enty or versions of this site were so much more interesting. not to be a complainer...

So he said it wasn't her and now is saying it is? I wish he or whoever would address these things

Sandy said...

Mike Patton wasn't the gay one in FNM; Randy Bottum was (Patton was just anti-homophobia, as I am and I'm not gay either).

I think this sounds like Mark Wahlberg. No one in their right mind would ever fall for Durst, least of all a 17-year-old Korean girl. Marky Mark, though, is quite another matter.

Mia Luna said...

This is really disappointing. I've been reading the site for years but rarely comment. Fabricating reveals - not cool Enties. Time to move on from this site.

Pip said...

Ha! Enty was pimping out those fugly knit bikinis in the link makaveli posted. Who the hell would buy that?

Mia Luna said...

This is really disappointing. I've been reading the site for years but rarely comment. Fabricating reveals - not cool Enties. Time to move on from this site.

HannahBanana said...

:( poor girl...she was just a baby herself. Had no clue. Hope the child at least was adopted by a loving family.


And yes I totally think this Fred Durst. He is absolutely capable of this level of couldn't give a shit less.

__-__=__ said...

So what if we find the Korean girl group?
Diva
SES
Baby VOX
FinKL
Han's Band
Circle
Maybe: O24, Cleo, As One, Chakra

Durst, Marky Mark, Vanilla Ice seem to fit.

Guys that lead women on like this, because they're gutless, should be called out by good men regularly. Where are the good men? Smarmy guys are harming good women every day. Goes the other way too.

Brenda L said...

Could this be one of the Chili Peppers???

blogger_monster said...

Mike Shinoda?

Hegg said...

Terrible. Mos Def maybe??

FACT - Suicide is the most common cause of death for those under 40 in South Korea.
This really troubles me.

gr8p said...

I Googled her pic and U;nee was lovely. The guy in this blind could be ANYBODY! There are so many disgusting, self absorbed, a-hole rock/rappers....

RoseBlue said...

So the pregnant singer was in baby Vox?

Unknown said...

wow what a bunch of BULLSHIT enties, how about a fact check before a bullshit almost reveal about a poor womans SUICIDE. sickening

Unknown said...

We've obviously established this almost reveal is BS but just thought I'd add the point that u:nee died Hanuary 2007. The original BI date of December 2006 makes it glaringly obvious that this 'reveal' is false.
That's terrible.

I'm a fairly new reader of CDAN, am increasingly upset that I didn't find this site in it's apparent glory days.

Rachel said...

So this is the blind that enty references in the Britney spears deep dive as to why he hates Fred Durst so much. Searched and searched for it. Pretty gross to string this girl along because he wasn't man enough to tell her he wasn't interested and didn't want a baby. Feel sorry for this girl how sad she hung all her hopes on this dbag.
