MBC’s “Real Story Eye” Gets Criticized For Secretly Filming Funeral Of Song Sun Mi’s Husband

The August 24 episode of MBC’s “Real Story Eye” centered on the murder of actress Song Sun Mi’s husband. The current affairs program went to the funeral and released footage that was secretly filmed there.

out of respect, i'm not going to post any images or videos from RSE. it's one thing to air a show discussing about the murder, but the fact that cameras didn't have Sun-mi's permission to film the funeral is a low blow & it pisses me off. let the family grieve for god's sake

Flashback Friday

I woke up this morning with my phone in my hand and the screen on the BevMo website, so I’m ready for the weekend! Every Friday I check the charts in a past year for this day and share the top three songs. Then, I share two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, let’s see what we were listening to 5 years ago, in the 4th week of August, 2012. A nice mix of songs this week.

#3 10cm “Love Forms A Drop”
Doesn’t the guy in this MV look like a young Eric from Shinhwa? I totally think he looks like Eric. Is this Eric? Nah, can’t be.

Koreaboo sums up the whole Jaehwan incident, provides better statement than YMC & MBC

Yesterday, Koreaboo wrote an article about Wanna One‘s Jaehwan and a video released by MBC. The story instantly spread amongst Wanna One fans and multiple Korean media sites, becoming a highly controversial topic.

What started the controversy?

In a video released by MBC‘s Show Champion, Jaehwan appears with subtitles below him saying, “Yo! 내가 What’s up?! Come on!”. The subtitles do not reflect what Jaehwan allegedly said in Korean, “Yo! 내가 왔어! Come on!”. You can see both the subtitles and audio in the clip below:

The video spread through Twitter and was immediately labeled as being inappropriate by some. However, fans defended Jaehwan to say that he was not being racist and simply speaking Korean.

Jaehwan is not being accused of being a racist and intentionally being offensive. His message is in response to a fan who asks the group, “Appear in front of me?”.

How 'The War' came together: Billboard interview with EXO and their producers

8/24/2017 by Monique Melendez

These are cliff notes of the article, you should definitely go read the full interview at the source

The Eve: created @ a song camp, producers wanted something dark and mysterious, but performance driven. It was originally for Henry but everyone agreed it would be perfect for EXO (thank god)
Kokobop: aimed for a reggae-pop song and added the drop. Didn't know it would be for EXO, but SM considered it for a female group because the demo was recorded by one of the female producers and the song was in a higher range. Chen, Chanyeol and Baekhyun all individually wrote lyrics for it, then combined their work into what fit best.
What U Do: written in december, originally composed for NCT, SM wanted something "danceable but not synthy"
Forever: producers were aiming for Monster 2.0, but bigger
Diamond: created after seeing EXO live at the Olympic Stadium, inspired by the energy of the group and the fans; wanted to create a 3 minute long audible movie through this song
Touch it: first received almost 2 years ago and it took months of work for it to be the final product they could hand over to a big group and was created with the thought of a fun live performance in mind. chen relied on his imagination for most of the lyrics
Chill: written at a SM song camp last year, both sm and exo loved the song from the get-go; no demo was recorded for the song when chanyeol began writing the lyrics for it
Walk on Memories: inspired by justin timberlake's cry me a river and 90's rnb and jazz. EXO's team loved the song when they received it but wanted to change parts to reflect the fantasy theme they were going for on the new album
Going Crazy: track is over a year old and originally supposed to go on ex'act. (op: an earlier version was used on a vcr at exo'luxion)

i love reading interviews like these, they're so fascinating. i hope exo get more and more input to hear them talk about it

Woman of Dignity finished last weekend on JTBC with record ratings, with Age of Youth taking over the time slot this weekend (still no subs as of the time this post was made). MBC's Man Who Dies to Live, riddled with controversy, finished its run with high ratings. Hospital Ship will take over the time slot starting Wednesday August 30 (preview post forthcoming).

Gangnam murderer ordered to pay ₩500M to Victim's family

A Seoul court on Tuesday ordered a man who was convicted of murdering a young woman last year at a public bathroom near Gangnam Station in Seoul to compensate her bereaved family for their mental and physical distress.

The Suwon District Court’s Seongnam branch ruled that the 35-year-old man, surnamed Kim, must pay 500 million won in compensation to the victim’s parents. They filed the suit after Kim stabbed their 23-year-old daughter to death in May 2016 “because he hated women.”

the fact that the police isn't calling the murder a hate crime .. *rme*. i'm glad the suspect is rotting in jail tbh

Red Velvet's first concert Red Room round up

Red Velvet successfully wrapped (like a week ago, but let's ignore that) their 3-day concert held at the Olympic Hall on 19-21 August. Around 11.000 fans were in attendance each day! Thank you to kenziekinz09 for the huge help with the fancams, this was hellish to hunt down and there are some VCRs and Russian Roulette missing that I couldn't find anywhere. Post is media heavy of course.
