HIPHOPPLAYA awards 2013


Hip hop artists Swings and Bumkey, both Brand New Music artists, have been selected as the “HIPHOPPLAYA Awards 2013” Artist of the Year and R&B Artist of the Year, respectively.

HIPHOPPLAYA is an online hip hop community site supported by hip hop enthusiasts and has played a pivotal role in the development of the Korean hip hop scene for a long time. Unlike regular award ceremonies, the “HIPHOPPLAYA Awards” differentiates itself by handing over judging authority over to hardcore music fans.

Swings took home 41.76% of the vote in the Artist of the Year category, crushing his competition in the form of Beenzino (16.99%) and Paloalto (16.20%). His album “Swings #1 Mixtape Vol. 2” came in second place in the Album of the Year category, while the single “Bulldozer” was also in second place in the Single of the Year category. “Hwang Jungmin” took home first and third place in the Verse of the Year category, so it looks like Swings had the last laugh in the “Control” diss battle of 2013.

The title of R&B Artist of the Year went to Bumkey (33.89% of the votes), who had two major hits last year in the form of “Bad Girl” and “Attraction” and is currently preparing for a debut as the main vocalist for Troy, a hip hop group by Brand New Music.

Brand New Music revealed, “The two artists are truly thankful to have received the wholehearted support of true hip hop fans at these awards. We will continue to respect their individual color and individuality and work hard to repay fans with better music.”

Inside Stardom Entertainment: Interview with a former employee

K: Why did you go to Korea?
My German university was offering an exchange semester here in Seoul. Moreover, if it is possible, I want to work in Korea later, so I see this as a chance to get to know the people and the working world here a little better.

K: What did you do there?
Besides my studies I took a four-week language course. I also went to some concerts. For my last three months here I am now working at Stardom.

K: How did you become overseas fan manager / marketer for Stardom?
Actually it all happened by chance. At the end of October I was at an event and was addressed by someone. They asked me what I was doing in Korea and why I was interested in K-pop. As it turned out, the person was a manager from Stardom. He gave me his business card and told me to call him so we could talk about a job. They were looking for someone who could work in the overseas management department. After a number of visits, face-to-face talks and submitting a variety of documents – among others a CV (in Korean, of course), previous media design work as well as a design for a potential ToppDogg website (which was supposed to be my recruitment test) – I was called by Stardom and got the job at the beginning of January.

This was pretty interesting! I want more (ex)employees to start giving interviews like this. The part about the teaser photos I wonder what happened and why only 3 were released. Stardom is so frustrating with their tardiness or just releasing things whenever they feel like it.

Mwave interview with AlphaBAT + member profiles

[Exclusive Interview] AlphaBAT Talks the Members′ Different Flavors and Creating a Real ‘AB City’

AlphaBAT may only be four months old in idol age, but the K-Pop group already has two singles under its belt and is currently dominating the rookie scene with latest track Tantara.

The tight-knit nine-member idol group recently sat down with enewsWorld for an exclusive interview ahead of its MEET&GREET with Mwave and talked excitedly about its comeback as well as all of the qualities – from A to Z - that make the group uniquely AlphaBAT.

Can you tell us a little bit about ‘Tantara?’

BETA: This is a track we prepared for a year and three months. Although the track was created a year and three months ago, we loved the song so much, we kept editing and re-editing it to the point that the composer hyungs got annoyed with us, saying they were never going to give us another track [laughs]. We worked really hard on it and have a lot of affection for this track.

Eat like oppa/noona - steamed bun (hoppangs, jjimppang)


As you’ve probably notice by now, I suck at taking pretty pictures, which is why I usually hide this mess under the cut. But I realized it might not be clear that those posts are really about food, so here it is.

This time I’ve decided to try making steamed bun (hoppangs - sweet, and jjimppang - veggy), and since I know we have a few vegans at Omona it’s gonna be a vegan recipe. I’ve try to indicate the measurment in glass (thinking of you people who don’t live in gr land ;p… ) I do hope it’s alright, let me know if something looks off.

If you have question or want to share tips don't be shy.
There must be a few misspelling in there but I'm too tired right now, i'll fix everything later.

Edit: thanks to momomoing and k0dama for correcting my mistakes :3
