YGE to create a new Hip Hop Program (not an audition show)



Industry representatives reported that YG Entertainment is launching a hip hop idol audition program, and high-rank staff members have created a new team in charge of the show. According to the reports, the program will be broadcast not via television but through a different method with Naver.

One source commented, “It’s a new attempt they wanted to try for awhile. It’s different from a simple audition, and it will officially begin in October after a preparation period.

In response, a representative from YG Entertainment clarified, “It is not an audition program,” and explained, “PD Han Dong Chul is planning a hip hop program that is completely different from ‘Show Me the Money.'”

Han Dong Chul, who previously produced “Show Me the Money,” led “MIXNINE” after joining YG Entertainment in 2017.

Sian and his sisters get into the spirit of Frozen and spent time ice skating. Then he goes on a mission to get more chicken. They do eat a lot of chicken at that house lol. William and his family are still in Singapore and get a surprise visitor. Bentley is really all about the food now. Kahi gives birth to her second child and her husband...goes wakeboarding? Like, I know she and the baby are in the hospital being taken care of, but personally I would be so pissed off. Noah's so cute with the baby.

There was a lot of comments about not seeing anything hard dance wise from this year's releases. This isn't a top list and very non-scientific. What others would you add?

Public Toilets To Be Monitored To Crack Down On Spycam Porn

Public bathrooms in all transportation hubs in South Korea, including airports, bus terminals, metro and train stations, will be regularly monitored as a measure to better deal with secret cameras installed in public toilets, as well as spy cam pornography that has been prevalent in the cyberspace in the country, its government announced Sunday.

Spycam pornography, locally known as “molka,” generally refers to secretly produced, sexually exploitive videos or pictures of women in public spaces, such as restrooms and subways, among others. Such contents have also been created and shared online by victims’ ex-boyfriends, typically in retaliation with the intent to damage the women's future job and marriage prospects.

The announcement follows on the heels of the fourth edition of ongoing women’s rights rallies against spycam pornography, which was held near the presidential office in central Seoul on Saturday. According to organizers, some 70,000 people participated in the rally this weekend -- about 10,000 more than the previous held last month -- in spite of a scorching heat wave that has gripped the country. Since its first edition in May, the demonstrations have been recorded as the biggest women’s movement in South Korean history.
