Screen Shot 2014-02-15 at 10.45.41 AM

The start of 2014 has been quite busy for SM Entertainment. Starting with TVXQ’s comeback in the beginning of January, the agency recently announced that Girls’ Generation would also be making their official comeback with the song “Mr. Mr.” Yet, there is much more in store for 2014, as SM has been preparing for their artists’ comebacks. In a recent interview with SM Entertainment’s producing team leader, Lee Sung Soo, the agency revealed their plans for 2014.

The producing team leader commented, “After TVXQ’s and Girls’ Generation’s comebacks, the agency plans to make another EXO comeback. Also we have two surprise projects that will be released within the first half of the year. For Super Junior, we have been preparing their new concept since the end of last year. In f(x)’s case, we have been working with our ‘Teddy Riley’s Writing Camp’ program, and our composers are writing new songs very diligently.”

It is only February, and yet we are excited to see what more SM Entertainment has in store for us this year. 2014 will be a year full of comebacks for SM artists!

It's that lovely time again where we all get to cheer on our country's top athletes...as well as our favorite Korean athletes too! This FFA will serve as a place to gather and chat about the games with your fellow Omonazens and there will be a new post every day with updates about medal counts, crazy wins, or heart-crushing losses.

For a schedule of what's going on each day, you can check here at the sochi 2014 website and well as the bbc website.

You can check out Team Korea here to see who's ready to compete! (Go Women's Curling!)

Here is a list of all the athletes for Team Korea competing today!! NGL, the Sochi website is pretty well set up and has been awesome for figuring out times and such for events (especially since you can have the times synced to your timezone~)

Biracial couple gets raw deal on adoption

By Kim Da-ye

A “multicultural” couple ― Korean wife and American husband ― living in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi Province, learned the hard way that couples like them are effectively blocked from adopting a baby.

In August 2012, the couple decided to adopt. They soon found they faced an uphill struggle and nearly gave up. Three major adoption agencies they contacted said they had no idea how they could arrange an adoption for a Korean-foreigner couple under the revised Adoption Law.

“We checked with Holt but they told me they didn’t know how they could help,” the wife remembered during a recent interview with The Korea Times. Holt refers to Holt Children’s Services, the country’s largest adoption agency.

Baddest Female CL Has Composed 3 Songs for 2NE1's New Album!!!!

“You are the ones to judge the quality of her music. But when I first listened to CL’s very own song, the one word that described my feeling was “surprised.” Which is only natural, because I have known CL for 8 years and I never expected her to produce a song like this, and the song was too good to be her very first one.”
