G-Dragon hints that there may be a new Big Bang sub-unit

G-Dragon appeared at the '2013 Style Icon Awards' on the 24th and accepted the Daesang award for 'Style Icon of the Year.'

Afterwards, he met up with Choi Jae Jin and talked about his future plans.

G-Dragon said, "I think I'm going to be busy again from now on. I'm in the stage of wrapping up promotions for my album and Big Bang has a six-location dome tour in Japan this November . . . I am also thinking about a new sub-unit in Big Bang. I hope people anticipate things in relation to Big Bang and a new sub-unit within Big Bang."

Previously, G-Dragon and T.O.P had promoted together as a unit called GD&TOP. Due to G-Dragon's new hint at the possibility, people are hoping they may be able to see all kinds of various units perhaps by the name of GD & VI (Seungri), GD & Sol (Taeyang), T.O.P & VI, and more.

Which members of Big Bang would you like to see in a sub-unit?

SISTAR's Hyorin to make her solo debut!

We heard this past summer that Hyorin was likely gearing up for a solo debut, and Starship Entertainment has now announced that it won't be long before the SISTAR member will be standing on stage.

A rep from the agency stated:
"Hyorin is preparing her solo album. We haven't set a release date yet. The details for the concept and song production are in the final stages. Even the label is really anticipating Hyorin's album. As Hyorin has always gathered attention with her solo performances on radio and TV shows, we suspect that she'll do well. Though she was a part of the SISTAR19 duo, this is the first time she'll be releasing an album solo."

Some sources are also reporting that Hyorin's album is scheduled for a November release, but Starship Entertainment has made it clear that nothing's set in stone.

Trouble Maker to release a 19+ (mature) rated version of their new album

Trouble Maker's second mini-album is set to be released on the 31st, but already it is selling well through pre-orders on various music sites. On top of this, they will be releasing the original album as well as a separate album with a 19+ (mature) rating for adults.

A rep of Trouble Maker's agency Cube Entertainment revealed, "After a lot of thought, we decided to release an album version with a 19+ rating. You will probably be able to see even more sexiness than the current Trouble Maker has shown."

This 19+ album version will be packed with highly shocking images that have not been revealed on the internet. However, the definite time of release has not yet been decided. The agency plans on releasing this new version approximately two weeks after the original album is released so you may have to wait quite a bit longer before you get to see any of these "shocking images".

Trouble Maker's new album is already receiving a lot of attention even a week before its official release as noticeable by its popularity on the pre-order music charts. Trouble Maker will be revealing their new music on various music sites on the 28th and their actual album will start selling on the 31st.

crayon pop are coming to visit me !!!!!!

5 piece K-Pop sensation Crayon Pop will be in Australia and New Zealand for a promotional tour from 4th to 8th November.
Debuting in 2012, Crayon Pop has been rising fast in the world of K-pop, with the popular group already achieving a #1 position on the Billboard K-pop 100 chart with their hit Bar Bar Bar.
Crayon Pop consists of members Cho-A, Way, Ellin, Gummi and Soyul, and have always strived to be different to the perfectly groomed, sexy girl bands that the world is accustomed to. Instead the group gains attention for their intentionally funny act and their unique costumes ranging from school uniforms, motorcycle suits with helmets, and the iconic yellow jumpsuits made famous by action star Bruce Lee.
The girls’ unique dance moves, such as those displayed in the straight-Five Engine Dance, have now become their trademark with fans worldwide regularly uploading their recreations to YouTube.
Crayon Pop will be in Australia and New Zealand to promote their new single from the 4th - 8th of November.

Is anyone else as amused as I am by the censored brand names? I've made a game of guessing them (even though it's not very hard^^). The ep is nice: SH is being unreasonable about the quality of his and JH's (on-screen) chemisty, there's more fun to be had during the model getaway, and a special guest appears.
