I love it!! It's so perfect, especially when it picks up about halfway through the song. I cannot wait until the rest of the album drops.

JYP Entertainment liquidates U.S. based company ‘JYP Creative’

It’s been belatedly revealed that JYP Entertainment liquidated their subsidiary U.S. company, ‘JYP Creative‘, which they established back in November of 2011 in the U.S., after 1 year in November of 2012.

JYP Entertainment, headed by J.Y. Park, invested $1.2 million into the subsidiary for their activities in the U.S. However, JYP Creative recorded a net loss of 119 million KRW ($106,000) in 2011, and the loss continued, resulting in a net loss of over 1.7 billion KRW ($1.5 million) in 2012.

To help with JYP Creative activities, J.Y. Park had opened up his Korean BBQ restaurant ‘Kristalbelli‘ in New York, but it’s said the restaurant has faced losses as well. However, for the time being, the restaurant will continue to operate.

Although they’ve liquidated their American firm, the agency states that there is no change in promotion plans for their artists.

JYP Entertainment assured, “There is no problem with the agency artists promoting domestically or internationally.”

They continued, “Currently, 2PM, miss A, and other agency artists are promoting more within Asia like the countries of Japan and China, rather than the U.S. There is no immediate plans for promotions in the U.S., so there is nothing that has changed because the American firm has been dissolved.”

Former Member Allen Kibum Says He Still Loves U-KISS

85935054

Allen Kibum told enews through his agency Professional Entertainment on March 22, "It is true that I was lacking in music while I was with U-KISS. That′s why I accepted the replacements. I decided to go to Japan thinking that everything happened because of my weaknesses in music."

He added, "The reason I concentrated only on live performances for two years in Japan, after giving up everything related to visuals, is because I wanted to make a return as a true singer in Korea again. During the two years I spent with music I was in such pain that I even thought of suicide at one point, but now I′m ready to become a solo singer with my current agency, and after it made me an offer in December 2012, I decided to make a solo debut in April."

"I can′t help but miss the time I spent with the U-KISS members. I was able to endure thanks to those memories and I still love them," he said.

Professional Entertainment was founded in 2008 by the man who produced Xing, the first group Allen Kibum debuted with, and who composed U-KISS′ hit single Man Man Ha Ni.

Allen Kibum will be staying in Korea for a while to record his first solo single Longing, then leave for Japan on March 23 to appear in a broadcast. In April he will return to Korea for the release of his single.
