GFRIEND’s Umji To Temporarily Halt Activities Due To Health Issue

GFRIEND’s Umji will be temporarily halting activities due to her health.

On October 5, GFRIEND’s agency Source Music officially stated that Umji has sprained the sartorius muscle located in her left thigh, and will be focusing on getting treatment.

The agency released an official announcement, saying, “Hello, this is Source Music. Umji recently felt some pain in her leg, and after receiving the results of her examination it was found that her sartorius muscle has been strained. The sartorius is a long, thin muscle that is used when walking or using one’s knees, but because it is strained it is causing pain.

“Following the doctor’s advice that both rest and treatment are needed for recovery, Source Music is placing Umji’s health as a first priority and focusing on her treatment. Until Umji heals, GFRIEND will be promoting as a five member group with Sowon, Yerin, Eunha, Yuju, and SinB.”

Get Well Soon Umji! We miss you already, but your health is the priority.

FUSE: SHINee Serves Classic Boy-Band Sounds With Retro '1 of 1' Comeback

SHINee Serves Classic Boy-Band Sounds With Retro '1 of 1' Comeback

Elements of New Kids on the Block, H.O.T and even The Beatles are felt in the K-pop quintet's latest release
Jeff Benjamin / October 5, 2016

When Fuse spoke with SHINee ahead of their headlining set at KCON 2016 Los Angeles, member Taemin said, "Every time we come out with a new album, we feel like we introduce something very new. It will be just like that this time." Less than two months after that interview, we're happy to report the guys have done just that with a new retro sound and look for their 1 of 1 album.

As if New Kids on the Block, New Edition or, heck, even H.O.T, brought their sound straight in to 2016's technology, "1 of 1" is classic, old-school boy band sound. From the vintage drum-machine opening to the subtle synthesizers and even a couple DJ record scratches, the throwback feel is palpable while the guys harmonize about how the female listener is "1 of 1, girl." One could even say the band further upped the classic boy-band ante with their focus on singing directly to the listener and using the "you" pronoun a la The Beatles' early material ("From Me to You," "She Loves You," "I Wanna Hold Your Hand").

Flashback Friday

It’s Friday, yay! Every week I go through the charts for this Friday in a past year and post the top three songs. Then, I choose two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we’re going back four years, to the 1st week of October, 2012.

#3 G-Dragon “Missing You”
“One of a Kind” is my fav GD solo album, and this is one of my fav songs on it. The “Missing You” track features the guest vocals of the awesome Kim Yoon Ah from the equally awesome band Jaurim (I am waiting for the day when my favorite Jaurim song pops up on a chart you don’t even know). This video, however, is from GD’s One of Kind Tour, and features Soohyun from AkMu. They’re both so awkward and cute in their matching outfits lol adorable.

[Instiz] Korean Graffiti Artist making a name for his work of Black Women in Hanbok

[Instiz: Americans abuzz with graffiti of 'Black women wearing a Hanbok']
'Royal Dog' has been the topic of the internet for his graffiti work of black women wearing hanbok along with the Korean text 'a flower has bloomed' in four different cities including LA and San Francisco. His instagram with more pictures: Royal Dog_


"So pretty"

"Wow, really pretty..."

"Pretty and makes me feel proud"

[More of the comments here...]"Very cool. I've seen a lot of paintings of white women wearing hanboks but this is my first time seeing a black woman in one."

"Hanbok really does look good on any race.."

"I think methods like this are a great way of raising awareness about Korea ㅠㅠ nevermind all those explanations about kimbap being a combo of rice, ham, cucumber, sausa,ge, blah blah blah ㅎㅎㅎ"

"So beautiful..."

"Pretty, I want this as a mural on my wall"

"Wow, there's such an aura to it"

"Makes me want to go see it in real life"

"The quality of the graffiti looks as good enough to be a real picture"

"Goosebumps... the work has still captured the characteristic beauty of black women too"

"Pretty.. love the flower next to her too"

Op's Note: Saw this and was floored. This is amazing, and the fact that she is a dark skin woman nothing but hearts in my eyes. I hope he does more. I mean that's not to take away from other black artist that draw and paint black women, its just nice to see other POC do it since not always the case.
