Jae to hold concert in Japan next month


Kim Jae-joong, a member of the popular K-pop boy band JYJ, will hold a solo concert at a Japanese stadium next month, his management agency said Wednesday.

The concert set to be held at the 60,000-seat Yokohama Stadium in Yokohama, Japan, on Nov. 15-16 is part of his Asian tour concert to mark the upcoming release of his first solo full-length album, C-Jes Entertainment said.

Kim is set to start the tour with a Seoul concert on Nov. 2-3.

Kim enjoys huge popularity in Japan,” the company said. “We decided to hold the concert at a large-size performance hall as his Japanese fans have shown great interest at the news of the release of the first album.”

The 27-year-old singer last released a solo mini-album titled “MINE” in January and sold more than 200,000 copies. The new album is due in late October.

He previously put on a solo concert for a sold-out audience in Yokohama in June.

Princess Hyuna and her Jester to possibly return with Troublemaker unit. Op's moobs not calm.

[NB comments for the lulz]Source: Newsen via Nate

1. [+598, -66] I personally like Troublemaker... Just that I feel bad for Hyunseung having to deal with rumors of him having erectile dysfunction because he's never hard around Hyuna's sexiness..... ㅠ

2. [+434, -60] Oh, looking forward to this. They match well as a unit, even if it isn't necessarily a sexy concept.

3. [+404, -67] Looking forward to the Hyun siblings' Troublemaker~

4. [+54, -17] Troublemaker definitely wrote a page in the sexy history of Korea (this truth right here)

5. [+33, -5] They actually resemble each other a lot

6. [+30, -4] For some odd reason, Hyunseung looks more natural around Hyuna than the other B2ST members ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+29, -4] Troublemaker is the buzz no matter what ㅋㅋㅋ I personally like them so I feel bad when they get so much hate online...

8. [+29, -9] I wonder what menboong they have planned for us this time... I hope they go with a sweet couple concept instead of something erotic

GD releases a limited edition LP, it sells out in a day


G-Dragon is on fire these days so it come as no surprise that the limited LP edition of his 2nd album 'Coup D'etat' sold out within one day since pre-orders began!

According to YG Entertainment, pre-orders began on September 30, and within a day, all the prepared copies reserved for pre-order had sold in Korea. Since G-Dragon's lucky number is 8, the Big Bang leader released 8,888 copies as limited edition, even numbering the 8,888 copies himself. The album package also includes the 'G-Dragon Space 8' image gallery and BTS cuts, so of course VIPs were just itching to get their hands on one!

The LP edition's official release date is on October 18.
