dispatch explains why they haven't dispatched anyone yet



User:
"Is there any news on this year's January 1st?"

Dispatch:
"There's the political situation of impeachment. Korea's current interest is the president Park Geun Hye, Choi Soon Sil, and their collaborators. It is the period that we must pay attention to politics. That's why we took a break on January 1st, 2017. We Dispatch also looked for the news related to this national situation. Despite the limits of entertainment media, we were on the field because we wanted to share anything. Dispatch will come back when it's OK to have celebrities' dating news filled on search engines. Happy new year."

Rap Monster releases 'Always'



Produced by RM
Arranged by Pdogg

I worked on this the beginning of last year and only did a simple recording.
When I was going through a tough time, I didn’t want to just let that feeling go so I recorded it.
Thankfully, I’m feeling a lot better now!
Even though the feeling has passed, I felt like it was a waste to throw away this song so I’m sharing it.
I wanted to edit it and clean it up a bit more but
I didn’t, so I could leave it as it was back then.
Because when you’re sad, a sad song can make you feel a lot better.
Happy 2017 ! !

[lyrics]

One morning, I opened my eyes

And wished that I was dead
I wish someone killed me
In this noisy silence
I live to understand the world
But the world didn’t once understand me, why
No, the other half is missing*
It’s trying to hurt me
I miss me miss me baby
I miss me miss me baby
I wish me I wish me baby

Wish I could choose me

Why is it that I’m being so earnest

Yet it’s not working out
Always
Always
Always
Always
Always (I lost my all ways)
Always (I lost my all ways)
Always (I lost my all ways)

Always (I lost my all ways)

If I ever meet God, I would tell him this

That life is coffee that I never ordered
I would grab him by the collar and tell him
Death is an americano you can’t refill
Are you sure that you’re alive
Then, let’s prove it somehow
When I exhale, there’s breath**
On the window, there’s condensation
You are dead
You are dad, but you are dead
Dead dad you don’t listen to me

Dad please listen to me

Why is it that I’m being so earnest

Yet it’s not working out
Always
Always
Always
Always
Always (I lost my all ways)
Always (I lost my all ways)
Always (I lost my all ways)

Always (I lost my all ways)

(T/N: * The effort from the world is the half that is missing
   

        ** When breath is visible in the cold.)

I'm surprised this wasn't posted. But anyway, between this and Yoongi's mixtape subject, it really gives a bleak view of what the boys and probably lots of other idols go through in general but don't have the platform/freedom to voice it out.

I wanted to use this post to add a bit of info about the charts for the past year and I thought it would also be a good way to start a discussion about what it means to "do good" for boy groups and girl groups

Kim Jaejoong’s Concert Tickets Sold Out In Less Than 1 Minute

Kim Jaejoong’s Concert Tickets Sold Out In Less Than 1 Minute – Unwavering Love From Loyal Fans

His Highness

JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong fans had once again proved their faithfulness and unchanging love towards him.

Despite being on hiatus for about 1 year and 9 months (excluding his activities in the army), Kim Jaejoong managed to prove his explosive popularity when his concert tickets were sold out in LESS than one minute.

Kim Jaejoong who had just ended his military service on Dec 30th announced the details regarding his concert only TWO days before the ticket sales begin.

According to a ticket sales’ representative, usually artists will announce their concert’s details at least 2 months before the concert but in this case, Jaejoong announced it quite late. However, the respond from his fans around the world were overwhelming and the competition to purchase his tickets was really tough and strong.

Jaejoong concert titled 2017 KIM JAEJOONG ASIA TOUR IN SEOUL ‘THE REBIRTH OF J’ will be held in Hwajeong Gymnasium, Korea University on the January 21st and 22nd. He will then tour around other countries to meet his fans too.

On the other hand, Jaejoong had already started his first activity a day after ending his military service. His fansign which was held in Live Plaza, Coex Mall was attended by more than thousand over fans who had been waiting eagerly to meet him.

Well, that’s the power of Jaejoong. Congratulations and welcome back!

Is GZB Park Bom Readying a Solo Comeback?



Park Bom updated her Twitter and Instagram account, promising fans that she would continue to keep singing and be a professional singer.

Since 2NE1’s shocking disbandment, BlackJacks have been worried about the members and their future plans. While the members have been updating their social media with small hints about their future plans, it still wasn’t made clear whether Park Bom would release new music.

Fans have constantly been tweeting Park Bom messages of support, hoping for an answer to their questions. This was answered when one such fan tweeted the question, “Professional Singer or YG Employee/Intern or Still Deciding.”
