Yang Hyun Suk,who directly participated in the directing the production for the album, stated, “Lee Hi’s first solo album will not be about ranking or popularity, and instead, will just focus on creating a masterpiece of an album.

Lee Hi’s album track list features the works of names like Teddy, Tablo, Choice 37, Masta Wu, Lydia Paek, Kush, and Realmee, leavings fans curious to see how these top names will have helped interpret genres rarely heard in K-pop.

Joo Won singss “Don’t Know How to Love” for 7th Grade Civil Servant

This is a remake of another song, and Joo Won previously expressed his difficulties with recording, as he said, “The original song [by AshGray] itself is a difficult song, so I had a lot of difficulties, but I tried hard to give a different feel from the original version.

Charity Post: YG rolling in dough; donates money to children <3

Yang Hyun Suk to donate $922,000 USD to help children in need

It’s been revealed that YG Entertainment‘s CEO Yang Hyun Suk will be donating around 1 billion KRW (approximately $922,000 USD) to help children in need.

As YG Entertainment had a very fruitful 2012, the company decided to pay dividends to its stockholders at around 300 won per share (approximately $0.28). As Yang Hyun Suk is the largest stockholder of YG Entertainment, holding around 3.6 million shares, the dividend of 300 won per share amounts to nearly 1 billion KRW.

A representative from YG Entertainment revealed, “From the start, CEO Yang Hyun Suk had been planning to donate the money he made from stocks. He thinks of it as the result of people showing love to YG Entertainment and its artists, so he’ll keep donating. With the donations, he’s going to help children that need surgery but don’t have the money. He hasn’t decided on any specifics, but he’s personally looking through people who need help, and he’s going to hand the money himself instead of giving it to a charity.”

Looks like making music isn’t the only thing the CEO is good at.

So if you had the money, Omona, to which charities would you donate? :)

Yoon Shi Yoon Interview with Korea JoongAng Daily

photo289272

Yoon Si-yoon transformed his public image with an unconventional role as a free-spirited and fun-loving guy in "The Pretty Boy Next Door". By Yang Gwang-sam

Rising actor Yoon Si-yoon's roles have always seemed a perfect match. He debuted as a troubled yet considerate teenager in "High Kick Through The Roof" (2009) and was a patient and hard-working baker hopeful in "Bread, Love and Dreams" (2010). Just like his characters, Yoon, 26, is a considerate man of few words.

His recent role, however, broke the trend. Enrique Geum from "The Pretty Boy Next Door" arrives in Seoul from Spain and is a free-spirited, fun-loving and bubbly character who eventually falls in love with a lonely girl who has few friends (played by Park Sin-hye).

Though just 16 episodes, the cable drama on tvN has generated a lot of buzz, especially for Yoon's gifted portrayal of his unique character.

Ilgan Sports, the sports and entertainment daily of the JoongAng Ilbo, recently caught up with Yoon and bombarded him with questions about his recent role and immediate plans.

OP's thoughts summarized: Bird PD was nice but not right for the job, Joo Won might quit/get booted cause he NEVER TALKS, Kang Ho Dong should make a comeback.

Lee Sora covers Chicago's "Hard to Say I'm Sorry"


LOENENT
from the yt description:
A tribute album to the world famous producer David Foster, [HITMAN PROJECT] releases the second album "Hard To Say I'm Sorry".
The second album of [HITMAN PROJECT] is one the Korea's favorite pop songs, ranked 8th "Hard To Say I'm Sorry" sung by the legendary pop band Chicago. For this album, music director Lee Seunghwan, best Korean female vocalist Lee Sora, and YoungJi worked together.
Producer Lee Seunghwan directed the OST of A Love Story(Siwolae), Love Letter as well as Lee Sora's 'The Wind is Blowing', 'Dancing with You', and 'Not Anymore'.

Lee Sora's voice is amazing♥ You might remember her from her feature in Tablo's Home (though she's known for a lot more than that). I honestly didn't watch the video, but the song sounds amazing.
