BTS announces Highlight 2015 tour in collaboration with Community 54

The boys of BTS haven't even finished The Red Bullet tour making its way through the US later this month, but they have already set their sights on the future. Teaming up with Collaboration 54, their 4-city North American fan meeting tour will take off in September and will offer more than meets the eye.

Community 54 is a unique lifestyle clothing brand based in Manhattan's Lower East Side. In addition to expanding their horizons with a second store in Toronto, Canada, the founders have also sought an unlikely partner in up-and-coming K-pop group BTS (Bangtan Boys). The collaboration will result in a limited edition streetwear line, to be called "F/W2015" and will be released along with its photo campaign at a later date.

To help promote this new line, BTS will be returning to North America for a promotional tour, deemed "Highlight 2015," presented by Community 54 and TGM Entertainment in September 2015. In addition to the group, each stop will also feature a local artist from the US or Canada.

[The lucky cities & ticketing info:]
San Francisco, CA - September 22nd

Houston, TX - September 24th

Atlanta, GA - September 26th

Toronto, Canada - September 27th

Ticketing is as unique as their collaboration! Instead of traditional tickets, you purchase a promotional t-shirt for the event which acts as your entry and gets you a hi-touch with BTS. Shirts are available for $70 via Tictail. Passes for autographs and group photograph sessions will also be available at a later day. More information about those opportunities with be available on TGM Entertainment's Facebook page.

Update: Toronto T-shirts are sold out!
According to TGM Events, it's "an event with performance and fashion vendors. BTS will be performing and doing fan interaction like hi-touch, autograph session and group photos." So it's not an actual concert.

Song Ji Hyo Parts Ways Agency & Confirms Break Up with CEO Boyfriend


It is being reported that actress Song Ji Hyo has decided to part ways with her management agency, C-JeS Entertainment, following the expiration of her contract. Along with this news, it has also officially been confirmed that she is no longer with her former boyfriend, who is also the CEO of C-JeS Entertainment.

On the morning of July 10, it was made known that her exclusive contract with her agency has ended its run.

A representative of C-JeS Entertainment revealed, “After four years of being Song Ji Hyo’s management, we will no longer be working with her. Also, CEO [Baek Chang Joo] and Song Ji Hyo have maintained their manager-actor relations after parting ways as a couple two years ago.”

After publicly acknowledging her relationship with then-boyfriend Baek Chang Joo in 2012, the current status of their relationship was never confirmed until now.

The agency rep further shared, “We will cheer on Song Ji Hyo, who has been earning much popularity in Asia, to continue earning a lot of love through various promotions in the future. Furthermore, we will fully cooperate with her until she decides on a new agency.”

Naver & Soompi

I wish her the best as she finds a new agency! Also a big fat 'I TOLD YOU SO' to people who didn't believe me when I said that they had broken up 2 years ago based on how she and other cast members acted in Running Man. Sadly, I think she and Gary would have already happened if it were to be.

Seo Yuri Begs WINNER Fans to Stop Sending Her Threats for Alleged Statement About Mino


Broadcaster and voice actress Seo Yuri recently left a message on her personal SNS accounts begging fans of WINNER to stop leaving hateful comments and threats after allegedly making a statement about Mino’s lyric controversy.

On July 11, before the reports of Mino’s “Show Me the Money 4” controversy hit the media, Seo Yuri had posted on her personal Twitter account, “These days, it seems like there are people that think they were born from eggs on their own and not from their mothers…Oh, but I acknowledge Park Hyeokgeose.” [Park Hyeokgeose was the founding monarch of the Silla Kingdom, whose legend says he was born from an egg].

However, after fans of WINNER got a hold of this situation, they began to send threats and leave hateful comments on all of Seo Yuri’s SNS accounts for seemingly attacking Mino for his rap lyrics.

She attempted to explain her intentions, sharing, “I understand that fans may feel upset. I did not write those words with the intention of targeting anyone from the start. I have no knowledge or understanding of hip-hop. However, I was shocked while watching the program ‘Show Me the Money.’ I just couldn’t help but think that [the show] crossed the line of common thinking and reasoning.” However, the insults and threats continued.

Then, on July 13, Seo Yuri wrote a post on her Facebook asking the fans to put a halt to the hate:
“I am sincerely asking this of ‘WINNER’ fans.

There is currently swears and attacks that I can’t even bear to repeat pouring in through all of my SNS channels from fans of WINNER, or even people pretending to be fans.

Not just from our country, but [fans] from America and China have come [to leave messages] as well.

From the beginning, I have never mentioned a WINNER member’s name or uploaded a photo on my SNS.
I think the fans know this very well.

Furthermore, during this time when WINNER’s Song Minho has personally released an apology, I think fans, or fan impersonators, know very well that this behavior will not be of any help to Song Minho.

I am extremely distressed right now.
All I can do is watch over my mother who is hurt and unable to say anything as she reads all [of these comments] with her own eyes.

I ask of you, please stop.
Please tell others around you that are acting in this way to stop.

I hope that you truly think about what is the best thing that you can do right now for the star that you love.

I do not wish for this situation to get any bigger.
Thank you for reading this.”

Meanwhile, Mino received criticism for his controversial rap and choice of lyrics on the latest broadcast of “Show Me the Money 4,” to which he responded by formally issuing an apology.

J.Y. Park chose Tzuyu as the 8th member of Twice, and shockingly chosen netizen-eliminated trainee Momo as the 9th.
