SM to hold new SMTOWN LIVE Concert in Seoul on July 8



On April 11, SM Entertainment confirmed SMTOWN LIVE Concert will be held at Seoul World Cup Stadium on July 8th. This will be the first SMTOWN concert held in Korea in 3 years after holding a two-stop tour in Japan in the summer of 2016.

The SM concerts 'SMTOWN LIVE' began in 2008 and has successfully held shows in the world's biggest cities such as in New York, LA, Paris, Tokyo or Beijing. In 2011, the SMTOWN tour broke the record for being the first South Korean concert in Paris, France that sold out in 15 minutes.

SMTOWN showcases not only group or individual stages but also collaborations unique to these concerts. In 2014, SMTOWN LIVE in Seoul Tour brought together 75 artists such as BOA, f(x), SNSD, Red Velvet, EXO, SHINee, Super Junior, TVXQ, SM Rookies, Lee Dong Woo or J-Min, in a concert of over 5 hours.

This year's lineup hasn't been revealed yet. Expectations are high as TVXQ's Yunho is being discharged from the army on April 20th and expected to make a return on the stage, joining SM's youngest group NCT.

BRODUCE 98 Bro Revealed To Have Been Assaulted By Group Members Last Year



IT Entertainment’s Lee Seo Kyu, a contestant on “Produce 101 Season 2,” was belatedly revealed to have been a victim of assault at the hands of his old group members.

Previously, in September 2016, three members of the group Naughty Boys (formerly known as Pure Boys), Hwang, Jeon, and Yang (only referred to by their surnames), were charged with assaulting their team member Lee Seo Kyu during a time when they were still promoting as Pure Boys, kicking and punching Lee Seo Kyu in the chest and stomach.

It was later revealed that the three members were fined for their actions.

Member Hwang was also investigated by prosecutors for repeated assault of another group member, while member Yang was investigated for threats and extortion of a group member.

Naughty Boys came to be when the group, which had been promoting as Pure Boys, left the agency, dropped the name, and began to work independently as Naughty Boys, which resulted in the group being slapped with civil and criminal lawsuits.

IU suing a YouTuber for slander

AEN20170317003700315_01_i.jpg


Singer-actress IU plans to sue a man who has made derogatory and suggestive comments towards the star through YouTube videos, her agency said Wednesday.

Fave Entertainment, IU's agency, said in a statement that the YouTube user, referred to as "A" by the company, "habitually made comments slandering and personally attacking IU." The company plans to file a legal complaint against "A" by Friday.

The person in question has repeatedly uploaded derogatory and suggestive diatribes against IU, comparing the singer to a pet dog. Amid backlash from IU's fans, the man claimed that he's a diehard IU fan who just happens to enjoy vulgar jokes.

A representative at Fave Entertainment said that the company will pursue legal action regardless of his apologetic message and also "react to other Internet users who post vicious comments." In November of last year, 11 Internet users who were sued by IU for defamation were handed fines in a court ruling.
