GLAM releases teaser photos for "In Front of the Mirror" + short video note

GLAM has released teaser photos for their upcoming song, “In Front of the Mirror“!

The ladies had teased with little snippets of themselves during their top-secret music video filming, and they have finally released teaser images on their Facebook Page! There are 2 images for Zinni and one for each of the other members, so hopefully extra photos are coming up for the others as well.

The hip-hop group seems to have taken a radical image change for this comeback, choosing girly and innocent over sexy and fierce. Instead of the all-black clothes they had for “I Like That” they’ve opted for white, lacy clothes instead.

Pyongyang to cut hotline between North Korea/South Korea and cancel nonaggression pact

North Korea responded to new U.N. sanctions aimed at starving its nuclear program by vowing to cut a Cold War-style hotline and scrap a nonaggression pact with the South.

State-run media said North Korea "abrogates all agreements on nonaggression reached between the North and the South ... and also notifies the South side that it will immediately cut off the North-South hotline."

Pyongyang's statement appears to refer to the bilateral pact signed in 1991 that endorses the peaceful settlement of disputes and the prevention of accidental military clashes. However, earlier this week the North also reiterated threats to walk away from the 1953 armistice that technically ended the Korean War.

Also this week, Pyongyang threatened to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the U.S. and its allies.

(As Reuters notes, while the threat of a strike against the U.S. is "a hollow one," South Korea and Japan are in easy range of the North's short- and medium-range missiles.)

SHINee Joins the 100,000+ Albums Sold Club

Way to go SHINee! K-Pop’s contemporary band has sold almost 140,000 copies of their third full album “Dream Girl-The Misconceptions of You” in just nine days since its release.

The album was released on February 20 and quickly rose to the top of the charts. By the end of the month, it had already sold 137,000 copies. This puts SHINee in the 100,000+ club, joining Girls’ Generation with “I Got a Boy“, Kim Jaejoong with “I“, and CNBLUE with “Re:Blue” for 2013. “I Got a Boy” is currently in the lead with 274,000 copies sold since its release on January 1, but some are saying that SHINee could surpass that in due time.

On March 8, SHINee had a fan meeting at the Incheon International Airport CGV. On March 9, they will perform in Indonesia for the the KBS special “Music Bank in Jakarta.”
