YG Girl Group Member Kim Eun Bi Reportedly Withdraws from Group


Reports are stating that member Kim Eun Bi of YG Entertainment’s upcoming new girl group has withdrawn from the group.

According to an industry insider, the former “Superstar K2” contestant already left YG Entertainment six months ago due to health reasons. Daily Sports quoted a statement from a YG representative: “It is true. It’s regrettable that someone who has trained with us for so long ended up leaving without fulfilling her dreams. We think she decided that her health wouldn’t be able to withstand the group activities.”

Previously, following her appearance on audition program “Superstar K2,” Kim Eun Bi joined YG as a trainee in 2011 at the same time as Winner’s Kang Seung Yoon. With Kim Eun Bi’s reported withdrawal, the members confirmed for the girl group are Kim Ji Soo and Jennie Kim.

Meanwhile, previous reports have stated that YG’s new girl group is slated for debut in November.

[Breaking] Ventilation Window Collapses During 4Minute Performance, 25 Spectators Fall 3 Stories


Korean media outlet The Fact recently reported that at a 5 p.m. event in Sungnam on October 17, during a 4Minute performance, a ventilation window collapsed, causing 25 spectators to fall below the surface. Wikitree stated that the fall was roughly 10 meters (about 3.3 stories).

According to the report by The Fact, police and rescue workers have arrived at the scene and are working to rescue the spectators, penetrating a wall four stories below the surface to reach the injured. As of right now, two have been confirmed dead, and 13 have been rescued. Police think the vent may have collapsed from the weight of audience members who climbed on top of it to get a better view of the performances, although a more detailed investigation is currently under way.

Although the event was not organized by Cube Entertainment, the agency has stated that it will release an official statement soon.

[updates]Update 1:

According to the latest announcement by the police, 14 have been confirmed dead and 11 have been seriously injured.

Update 2:

As of 8:45 p.m. KST, the number of dead has increased to 15, and 10 have been seriously injured. The injured have been transferred to hospitals in Bundang and Sungnam for medical treatment.

Update 3:

A representative of the fire authority revealed to Yonhap News, “12 passed away at the accident location, and two passed away while being transferred to the hospital. Others have passed away while receiving medical treatment.” According to the officials, the number of dead is likely to increase. According to Yonhap News, 16 have been confirmed dead.


[Cube Entertainment Gives Official Statement]Cube Entertainment has given an official statement on the ventilation window accident that happened during a 4Minute performance.

4Minute was performing as one of the acts in the “Pangyo Techno Valley Festival,” along with T-Ara, Junggigo, 2Bic, and Cherry Filter. Spectators had climbed onto a ventilation window to get a better view of the concert, and due to the weight of the currently reported twenty-six people, the window had collapsed. The spectators fell 10 meters, and since the incident the number of deaths has risen to 16, with 10 injured.

Although the event was not organized by Cube Entertainment, because the incident happened while 4Minute was performing, the agency has released an official statement. “There is no way to measure the amount of grief in our hearts…The members and the staff did not know what had happened during their performance and only learned of the incident on their way back to Seoul. We hope no more people get hurt because of this incident.”

Super Junior will be making another comeback next week on October 23 with a special edition of their seventh album, “This Is Love.”

The full length special edition album will include nine tracks from the original album (exluding “Mamacita”), a remixed version of “This is Love,” and three new songs for a total of 13 tracks.

This album is special because each of the individual members participated in the design for the jacket cover of the album. The album will be released in different versions for each of the members.

Meanwhile, Super Junior released their full seventh album, “MAMACITA,” this past August. It topped the Billboard World Album Chart, as well as various music charts across Asia in Taiwan and Hong Kong. In Korea, they placed first for two weeks on KBS’s “Music Bank,” two weeks on MBC’s “Music Core,” and two weeks on SBS’s “Inkigayo,” as well as other music shows, collecting a total of nine trophies during their short promotion.

Though the entire album will be released on October 27, Super Junior will release the remixed “This Is Love” as well as the three new songs at noon on October 23 on various music sites. The same day, they will perform “This Is Love” and “Evanesce” on Mnet’s “M Countdown.”

Who’s excited for their comeback?

So that's 3 new tracks, one of it being Siwon's Don't Leave Me! Imma just wait for this repackaged album as i observe ELFs absolutely destroy each other over Sungmin's wedding ~scandal~
