BTS joins UNICEF campaign to end violence against children

SEOUL, Nov. 1 (Yonhap) -- K-pop group BTS has joined the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF)'s campaign to fight violence against children.

The boy band and the Korean Committee For UNICEF announced the launch of the "Love Myself" initiative Wednesday, a two-year fundraising scheme to support UNICEF's #ENDviolence program.

#ENDviolence, launched in 2013, is a global initiative involving governments, private sectors and non-governmental organizations to end abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence and torture against children.

"BTS and Big Hit Entertainment have partnered with the Korean Committee For UNICEF to sponsor its #ENDviolence program," BTS and its management agency said in a press conference at the UNICEF Korea's office in western Seoul.

They promised financial contributions to the campaign. They also plan to receive donations from fans and the public.

On the group's release of a new album, "Love Yourself: Her," last month, leader Rap Monster said that the band wanted to underscore the importance of self respect and convey the message that people cannot care for others before first learning to appreciate and love their inner selves.

"Realizing there is love within myself. And seeing others and society at large through that love with warm vision. That is the meaning of the 'Love Yourself' series and the 'Love Myself' campaign," the group said Wednesday.

SM Entertainment unveils new visual identity for their brand

A few days ago, SM changed their logo all across their social media platforms and their building and today they announced that their new visual identity will be introduced with a promotion exhibition at their Celebrity Centre.

The new SM Entertainment visual identity is dynamic and fluid, with a muted pastel palette of colors that maintains pink as SM's main color, while making use of soft curves and circular shapes to emphasise SM's core idea of mobility, innovation and infinity; a company that never stagnates. The interface for their website has also been changed to reflect their new modern look.

"SM Entertainment has always taken on new initiatives and challenges to grow and outpace the trends of the time. SM prepares for the future with a firm conviction that the core technology of the future lies in what we call 'Culture Technology'. Change begins today with SM Entertainment and its new corporate identity."

This change comes after the company has taken a step to become more digital and social media friendly throughout 2017.

Jung Joon Young, who’s currently in Cook Island filming “Law of the Jungle,” is reported to be unaware of the passing of his former “2 Days & 1 Night” castmate Kim Joo Hyuk.

On November 1, a source from “Law of the Jungle” stated, “The staff members in Korea are currently trying to get in contact with the staff members at [Cook Island]. However, because the cast is filming in the wild, they are unable to receive our texts and calls. It’s regrettable that we can’t reach them right now.
