You've waited 2 years for this!!!! Artpop: Frankenstein's monster edition~~~ [HARD MODE]

1234
Story behind the pic: Nichkhun is a scientist, in an attempt to help Bom stop her addiction to corn he ends up turning her into one, she accuses him of doing it purposefully coz she thinks he hates her, this is taking place right when Nichkhun is trying to make Jackson stop being so hot. When will your k-dramas create award winning stories like that?

The last guessing game I made was over 2 years ago! Someone suggested I make a frankenstien sorta thing, so here we are.

Before entering this post, I need to ask you....can you handle #artpop?! can you handle MY artpop?!

You will have your mind and ideals challenged! You will question why Nichkhun Frankenstien created such a creature so beautiful, so much aegyo, the world can not handle it, so I ask you once again...CAN YOU HANDLE MY ARTPOP?!?!?!?!

i think wonder unit will be the cutesy/innocent unit because of the styling (and dayoung's age)

The artist formerly known as K of Wonder Boyz debuts as Owol with "Dream on You" M/V



Coming off the heels of Wonder Boyz' disbandment earlier this year, former member Kim Tae Hyun has signed to Chitwn Music and released his first single under the label, "Dream on You." It's a pretty solid R&B track with a trap beat and guitar hook, and BAP's Jongup and Zelo both promoted the track on Twitter.

Prior to signing with Chitwn, he released "I Know It" as Tae Hyun under Dream Perfect Regime and a couple other songs not really of note

Big Hit apologizes for the BTS manager incident: manager has been dismissed from position

Hello, this is BTS' company Big Hit Entertainment.

We sincerely apologize for having given the fans anxiety through the '2016 BTS Season's Greetings DVD Making' video. Big Hit Entertainment completely prohibits any coercive actions that may cause the company artists to be unable to freely exercise their capabilities and energies. However, we must take responsibility both for the problematic action that arose, and for the fact that such a scene was included in a video that had so much meaning for the fans.

The manager in question has acknowledged his mistake, and has been summarily dismissed from his position. The supervisors have also been asked to take responsibility.

To make sure that a problem like this never again arises, we will make efforts to strengthen the internal control system of the company. In addition to this issue, we will also check through all of the similar cases that have been revealed online. Additionally, in the future should this situation recur, we will take strong action without regard to the position of the person in question.

Big Hit Entertainment considers this to be a serious problem that has shaken the principles of the company.

With heavy hearts, we are looking backwards to ensure that we have not overlooked the reasons for which we do this work. We will use this as an occasion to strengthen our most important principle, which is 'respect for and faith in our artists.'

Once again, we deeply apologize to the fans who give BTS so much love.

❄️🎄🎁 B1A4 blesses us with an early christmas present - 'It's Christmas'! 🎁🎄❄️



[Song translation]
Open your eyes darling
It’s Christmas
If you look outside
White snow is falling
Look at this white world
My heart beats faster without reason
I can’t control this feeling
Even if it’s just for a while
I want to feel the snow outside



I don’t want to see you today Kevin
I don’t want to be alone at home
How about putting what you’re doing on hold
And enjoying it
Time doesn’t wait for one
Everyone’s friends on Christmas right
I just wanna be a good friend
I just wanna be a good friend
Everyone’s together on Christmas right
I just wanna be a good friend



I don’t know what should I do
This upcoming dark night
Shall I quickly find someone
Or shall I watch TV
Instead of the warm floor at home
I’ve prepared a muffler
So please look for me
Ride a sled through the snow
The snow is piling up outside the window
I hear the bells ringing in my ear
Don’t be lonely even if you’re alone
I’ll be
I just wanna be a good friend
Let’s go to the crowded Myungdong street
I can hear the sounds of your heart
A day that everywhere shines beautifully
That’s today



I don’t want to see you today Kevin
I don’t want to be alone at home
How about putting what you’re doing on hold
And enjoying it
Time doesn’t wait for one
Everyone’s friends on Christmas right
I just wanna be a good friend
I just wanna be a good friend
Everyone’s together on Christmas right
I just wanna be a good friend



Open your eyes darling
It’s Christmas
If you look outside
White snow is falling
Look at this white world
Don’t be lonely because
An even better day will come soon



Everyone’s friends on Christmas right
I just wanna be a good friend
I just wanna be a good friend
Everyone’s together on Christmas right
I just wanna be a good friend

Oh My Girl Detained at Los Angeles Airport for Over 7 Hours, Returns to Korea

oh my girl 2


Rookie girl group Oh My Girl has reportedly been detained at an airport in Los Angeles.

A representative of their agency revealed on December 10, “The members of Oh My Girl departed for the U.S. on December 9 to prepare for their new album. But as far as we know, they have been detained at the airport for over seven hours.”

“The members of Oh My Girl and their staff successfully passed through immigration, but it appears that their filming equipment and outfits for the album jacket shoot have become a problem. Apparently there has been a misunderstanding during the customs inspection. We are trying to find out what exactly has happened.”

Meanwhile, Oh My Girl debuted in April and followed up in October with their second mini album and its title track “Closer.”

Sunggyu: "we fought and didn't talk for 3 days". OP thinks he means 3 WEEKS [Showtime]



Idol group INFINITE will be appearing on their first reality program in two years through MBC Every1’s “Showtime.” At the press conference, the six members (Sungyeol was absent due to overseas schedules) promised to show a different side of INFINITE.

[rest of the press conference]
Leader Sunggyu said, “It feels good to be able to participate in ‘Showtime.’ It’s been a while since the last time we filmed a reality program with all the members. We worked hard so please anticipate the broadcast.

The PD for the show revealed, “We wanted to cast INFINITE because they had shown themselves to be talented in many reality programs before. Not only do we plan to show their ordinary daily lives, but we also plan to revisit the memories the members made together.”

“Through the broadcast we will show our daily lives, our daily interactions, and even our daily conflicts,” Woohyun said.

We’ve been together for six years, so there’s bound to be some conflict,” Sunggyu added. “Woohyun and I actually fought recently, but we resolved it over a bottle of soju. That kind of natural interaction will be seen through the broadcast. When I have a fight, I easily get over my angry feelings. We also all nicely tease each other. Its something that we can do because we’re close with each other. It is difficult for us to break our relationship easily, because we understand each other’s personalities so well.

[alternate translation I used for the title]



[Fight he is referring to in Showtime Episode 01]
Sunggyu: "Among us, there’s one member [Woohyun] who always brings laughter to other members. He talks a lot and very noisy. He’s well-known for his image of being always bright and cheerful. Actually, he used to be an introvert. Although everyone claims him as greasy, he’s the type who couldn’t sleep at night after making a small mistake. Recently, he was facing his biggest slump since our debut, he was tired due to the hectic schedules and various conditions on stage. There’re some fans who couldn’t accept the fact that he has changed from a joyful person to a recitent one. I was angry at his behaviour and we even had a quarrel. There’s one day when I saw him crying alone at the backstage, I regretted my action towards him. Woohyun-ah, I will take care of you more, hope that I can become a partner or friend who you can share everything with. And I have a request, can you stop playing soccer and have a talk with me?"


Youngest member Sungjong promised to show a more mature and manly side of INFINITE, while members L, Hoya, and Dongwoo said that they would show a side of themselves not often seen on broadcasts.

If viewership ratings top 2 percent, then Sungyeol will donate all of his appearance fees,” Sunggyu concluded. “I sent him a message about it but he’s still in the jungle. It’s okay because he’s the type to agree to anything.”

Woohyun joked, “Good things like that should be done together,” but Sunggyu firmly replied, “Just Sungyeol will do it.”

INFINITE is the sixth group to appear on “Showtime” following EXO, BEAST, A Pink, SISTAR, and EXID. The first episode will air on December 10 at 6 p.m KST.

EXO's 'Sing For You' Topped Music Charts in Korea + #1 on Melon for 33 Hours Straight and Counting

10074603.jpg

As expected, EXO's winter single ‘Sing For You' is a chart-topper. The group released the winter special album just yesterday and it has already secured first place ranking in almost all the music charts in Korea.

The album features two title tracks and all the songs were released at midnight yesterday. The other title song is called 'Unfair' and it placed second to 'Sing For You.' The songs conquered the no. 1 and no. 2 spots in MelOn, Naver Music, Genie, Bugs and Soribada.

'On the Snow' and 'Girl x Friend' are on top of the charts as well so the group is very happy with the results.

On the other hand, it was reported that the Chinese version of Sing For You album was simultaneously unveiled in China and as usual, the real-time music chart Baidu King revealed EXO's winter album as first place.

Meanwhile, the members held their comeback stage earlier today at Lotte World in Jamsil. The event was called ‘EXO COMEBACK STAGE - Sing For You.' It was aired live via Naver V app so fans around the world definitely watched the show too.

Aside from singing the new songs, a segment for chatting with fans was part of the program as well. EXO is set to appear on MBC′s Music Core on Dec. 12 and SBS′ Inkigayo on Dec 13 to promote their album via comeback stages.
