NOTE: Unfortunately, the Arirang youtube channel and website links might be blocked/unavailable in some countries.

These three have such great chemistry, it was so fun watching them just hang out and pick on each other.
The most important take-away from this episode though is that Jae mentions that DAY6 will be releasing 2 singles each month!! (watch this crazed speech at 41:28)

Sam Okyere asks people to stop calling him 'black brother', netizens react

Article: "Please call me by my name rather than 'heuk hyung'"... Sam Okyere confesses about racism in Korea
Source: Ilgan Sports via Nate


heuk hyung = black brother

1. [+2,057, -89] Ah... heuk hyung.. I never thought of the word as racist and I'm so embarrassed for that. I thought it was just a friendly, witty term of endearment. I'll have to fix that, how does Okyere oppa sound ㅋㅋ

2. [+1,713, -67] He's right. Racism is rampant in Korea. If you're not a handsome blonde English speaker, people will be racist to you.

3. [+1,570, -74] I understand elders being racist because they haven't had much opportunities to come across foreigners but our generation shouldn't be like that, especially to South East Asianers...

4. [+93, -5] If the person feels that he is being discriminated against, then it is our responsibility to stop it

5. [+65, -7] He himself is saying he hates being called black brother so why would anyone try to argue that it's not racist? It's not right at all to call someone by their race. You need to see them as a human being before the color of their skin. It's like Asians having to suffer questions like "Are you a ninja? Are you good at piano? Are you good at math" by foreigners overseas. It doesn't matter if it's a compliment, judging someone by their race is wrong.

6. [+49, -3] I lived in Ghana for about three years and my friends always ask me if I see giraffes and lions everywhere but there are really only dogs ㅋㅋ I could relate so hard when Okyere-ssi said there are only dogs where he's from ㅋㅋ

7. [+42, -7] Black brother... I never thought of that word as wrong but now I see that it might be taken the wrong way by the other side

According to a report, she filmed the scene well thanks to her boldness and tasteful acting. Plus, her cuteness during the scene warmed up the atmosphere of the filming set, and the staff cheered when they saw Kim Seul Gi’s adorable acting. The filming wrapped up nicely, and Kim Seul Gi and Kang Ki Young were able to take a photo together.

M.I.B announces the first idol group disbandment of 2017

mib

It hasn’t been a full week into the new year yet, but the first idol group disbandment of 2017 has already occurred.

While 2016 was plagued with group disbandments and withdrawals, fans wished for a more stable year for idol groups in 2017. But in just a few days after the start of the year, yet another idol group has announced their disbandment. On the January 4th, male group M.I.B‘s agency Signal Entertainment announced:

"Last year, 3 of the members’ contracts have expired and they have chosen not to resign. Their musical tendencies are all so different that it was decided to be the best course of action for them to follow their own paths."

The members who have left the agency were revealed to be Young Cream, Zick Jasper, and Sims. While the their contracts had expired in October, the sole remaining member Kangnam will still be with the agency until his contract expires in March.

When asked about his status with the agency, representatives from Signal Entertainment simply responded, “It is too early to talk about it.”

‘Guardian’ (Goblin) popular but controversial



Critics point to gender stereotyping, viewers complain about excessive product placement

In the popular TV drama series “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God,” the male lead is, quite literally, a god.

Based on the Korean folklore of dokkaebi, a higher spiritual being roughly translated as goblin, the drama series features actor Gong Yoo as Kim Shin, a warrior born centuries ago who, after being impaled with a sword, is transformed into an immortal dokkaebi with endless wealth.

Korean dramas have notoriously favored near-perfect male leads -- attractive, intelligent, heirs to vast fortunes and more. “Guardian” has gone one step further in conjuring an ideal knight-in-shining armor, TV critics say.

Chen Donates To Give Helping Hand To Young Entrepreneurs



It has been belatedly found that EXO’s Chen made a donation to a business project that helps young people who are interested in entrepreneurship.

The Siheung Woman Resources Development Center made the donation known as they kicked off their “Youth Meets Entrepreneurship” project. They will work through the Community Chest of Korea to provide aid to people between the ages of 18 and 39 who are interested in opening their own businesses.

Chen’s donation is said to have been the catalyst for starting this project. A representative of “Youth Meets Entrepreneurship” stated, “It’s true that a donation was made in Chen’s name. His mother delivered the donation and said, ‘We hope that this will be used to help the youth of Korea.'”

This is not the singer’s first time making a meaningful donation, having given to the Siheung Multicultural Family Support Center last March. Chen also donated 20 million won (approximately $16,600) to the Siheung 1% Welfare Foundation last October.
