LABOUM PROJECT - Episodes 1-4, Eng Sub



Laboum Project was Laboum's own reality show, aired on MBN, focusing on overcoming the member's fears. It's a few months old but as it was never posted & Laboum's comeback is on the horizon, I thought this would be a good thing to post for those wanting to learn about the group ahead of their new release! Each episode is just under half an hour long.

In episode 1, the members film the opening sequence for the show and take turns in pairs to cook with unusual ingredients, including an ostrich eggs, raw octopus, and mealworms.

Kim appeared on Mnet’s survival audition program “Produce 101” as a trainee of Starship Entertainment. She caught the attention of viewers as a cousin of JYJ’s Junsu.

Late actress Kim Young-ae said "I would have let myself go if it wasn't for this drama"



Kim Young-ae, the life-long South Korean actress who recently passed away from pancreatic cancer, said her final work on the KBS 2TV series "The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop" is what kept her persevering in her final days.

In an exclusive interview with Yonhap News Agency before her passing, Kim said that "I would have let myself go if it wasn't for this drama," referring to "Wolgyesu," the weekend drama series that finished its broadcast in February.

Kim, who passed away on Friday at 65, was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2012 while she was appearing in the popular TV series "Moon Embracing the Sun." She began her acting career at the age of 20 in 1971 after being hired by MBC TV.

She sounded amazing. So many films and dramas! Definitely a familiar face in the dramas I've seen. Rest in peace.

Kim Hyun-joong to push ahead with Japan tour amid DUI charge

South Korean singer-actor Kim Hyun-joong will hold his upcoming publicity events in Japan as scheduled despite being charged with drunk driving, his agency said Monday.

According to Keyeast Entertainment, Kim will release a new single in Japan on June 6 and hold a 16-city tour there, titled "Inner Core," starting the next day.

Kim, a member of the K-pop boy band SS501, was caught driving under the influence of alcohol on a street in Seoul's Songpa Ward around 1:55 a.m. on March 26, according to the police. His case was referred to prosecutors.

The 31-year-old, who served in the military from May 2015 to February this year, will also hold a fan meeting at Jamsil Olympic Hall in Seoul on April 29 as scheduled, Keyeast said.

Kim has been locked in a legal battle as his ex-girlfriend, identified only by her surname Choi, filed a suit in April 2015, seeking 1.6 billion won (US$1.45 million) in compensation. The plaintiff claimed that she miscarried his child in 2014 after being physically abused by Kim.



I'm not posting a picture of him. Really, Keyeast? Don't you have other artists you can focus on?

"Running Man" hits lowest viewership ratings



SBS’ variety show “Running Man” recorded the lowest viewership ratings since its launch in July 2010, research firm Nielsen Korea reported Monday.

The latest episode aired on Sunday marked 2.8 percent for the first half and 3.4 percent for the second half. It is 1.1 percentage points (first half) and 1.7 percentage points (second half) lower than the previous week’s episode.

The show recently changed its time slot from 6:25 p.m. to 4:50 p.m. in a bid for higher viewership ratings.

Other variety shows that air at the same time recorded higher viewership ratings. MBC’s “King of Mask Singers” posted 8 percent in viewership ratings for the first half and 13.6 percent for the second half while KBS’ “Happy Sunday” gained an 11.8 percent rating.


Have the new episodes with the new members started airing yet? I'm still a couple of episodes back.

Meet the first openly gay Kpop star: Marshall Bang( Very freaking long article)


Marshall Bang, a music artist from Orange County, is about to make his big debut in South Korea’s vast Kpop market.


His voice is none but a power box, a mixture of a rich, smoky rasp, that’s reminiscent of a 90’s R&B singer, one whose sound is both familiar but altogether different. His personality is effervescent, rambunctious, naughty, all traits you’d want in a friend who’s both the angel and devil on your shoulders.

Officially set to debut as a solo artist sometime this year, Marshall has released a few collaboration tracks earlier this year under the moniker MRSHLL, with such artists as producer DJ Friz (“Resist,” “Release”), and producer Dathan (“Hello Goodbye“).
