Jay Park "Everything You Wanted"



Singer and rapper Jay Park released a pre-listening video for his upcoming LP album, "Everything You Wanted" on his YouTube channel.

The 1 minute YouTube video showcases some of the songs on the album, so that listeners can get a taste of what to expect when the full album is released. "Everything You Wanted" will consist of 19 R&B tracks that will also feature many of his label mates, such as Gray, Loco, Elo, Hoody and Cha Cha Malone.

Fans have been waiting for Park’s fourth studio album since he unveiled the digital single “The Truth Is” in March. He has since released four more digital singles -- “Me Like Yuh,” “Aquaman,” “Scene Stealers” and "City Breeze” -- which will all be included in the upcoming album.

Sorry, Mods. OP is lazy and tired and a lil drunky. Please accept this instead.

5 Seasonal Items Available Only in Korea Right Now

Fall is the best season to stock up some extra fat for the colder season. The weather is chill just about nice enough to enjoy dining inside or outside, grocery markets display newly harvested fruits and grains, and there are seasonal items released everywhere.

Of course we can’t talk about seasonal food items in fall without mentioning Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. Unfortunately, PSL is not a thing in many countries outside of the US and among them is included Korea.

However, global food franchises landed on Korea show how they successfully localize their menus even without PSL. Below are some of the best-looking seasonal items available only in Korea right at this moment.

And now I'm hungry. What's your fav seasonal item, Omona? I hate PSL, but I love Thanksgiving food so I can't wait until next month. And those Auntie Anne's sticks look so damn good.

Sorry Mods, please accept this one cause I messed up the last one. Still lazy and drunk XOXO.

BEAST HAVE NOT RENEWED THEIR CONTRACTS YET #FREEBEAST

BEAST’s contract with its label, Cube Entertainment, is set to end soon in October, but there has been no contract renewal yet, according to a local news source.

BEAST’s contract will end mid-October, and according to Star News, none of the members have signed a renewal contract with the agency yet. They know the terms for the renewal and it is just up to them now to sign or not.

It is speculated that BEAST has the option to sign again with the agency that created them, sign with another agency, or set up their own like the way veteran K-pop group Shinhwa had.

BEAST debuted in 2009 with the the single “Bad Girl.” Most recently, they released their third studio album, “Highlight,” with the title track “”Ribbon.”

What do you think BEAST should do?
