Slay Generation ranks 4th highest grossing girl group tour in the world

Imagine a world without girl groups, well, no don’t imagine that. Imagine a world without no concert tours; that in itself sounds absolutely devastating. But not to worry, even if you haven’t seen your favorite girl group in concert, you might want to know how well their tours have done in terms of total gross.

With some box office research provided by Billboard and Pollstar, we’ve been able to compile a list of the 10 highest grossing girl group tours of all time. This means we’re including every girl group around the world!

Let’s see if your predictions are as accurate! Here goes!

10) PCD – Doll Domination Tour – 14.3 million
The Pussycat Dolls are one of the best selling girl groups of all time with sales of over 50 million. According to a 2009 Billboard Office Score report, they made Billboard’s “Mid-Year List Of Top 25 Tours where data was collected between December 6, 2008 through June 20, 2009”. The Pussycat Dolls were listed at number 25 with a gross of $14.3 million.

Did Bambino plagiarize jpop duo Capsule?



I've heard this song on the radio a lot here in Korea and immediately recognized the melody from jpop duo Capsule's "STARRY SKY." Whether it was sampled with permission or not I don't know, but this could be a case of a plagiarism that hasn't seen the light of day yet. The part in question is at 3:09.

I went ahead and contacted both groups via their contact boxes and fbs. Hopefully it's just sampling with permission.

Viewers bash Olympics video staring Hyorin

A video being used by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism to promote the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games is the subject of heated criticism over what viewers are calling subpar content. Responding to the adverse public reaction, the ministry said Tuesday that the clip is not the official promotional video for the sporting event.

The nearly four-minute video depicts K-pop singers and comedians who, infected with the “Can’t Stop Moving” virus, dance uncontrollably to an upbeat reinterpretation of Korean folk song “Arirang.”

Collapse )

Yeah. Um, it's pretty bad. Hopefully the official video will be much better. I do understand why netizens are comparing it to the Tokyo video, the Olympics host cities are always being compared to each other. In every opening ceremony I've seen in recent years, they still bring up Beijing. And the Tokyo video is really fantastic.

Reporters Purposefully Waited To Break News About Bada's Relationship

bada1.jpg

On the October 18 episode of MBC Every1 talk show “Video Star,” singer Bada reveals an interesting backstory related to how the news broke about her current relationship with a man nine years her junior.

During the show, one of the MCs asks Bada if reporters really knew of Bada’s relationship three months before they broke the news, and Bada affirms, “They said they were hoping I would date. Since Shoo and Eugene got married and had babies and all, I guess I looked pathetic in comparison.”

“So what I heard after the dating news broke was that the reporters agreed to protect [my] relationship until it stabilized,” Bada reveals. “So the reporters waited for three months for us.”


If that's true, than that's kinda nice of them. Probably wasn't Dispatch, then.

Jay Park drops the R&B album that's Everything You Wanted

Tracklist with clickable timestamps:

Collapse )
source: Youtube channel xYJx and JAYPARKOFFICIAL

the 전화기를 꺼놔 remix is so good - Elo sounds amazing and Jay's reference to his other songs was hilarious. definitely prefer this album over Worldwide. some of the lyrics are cringe-worthy but does anyone really expect less from Jay?
edit: I've updated the video + the timestamps + source since the first video was taken down. I hope that's okay, mods!
