YG announces new survival show to form another boygroup

Through a post on YG Entertainment’s blog YG Life on October 29, Yang Hyun Suk revealed that like BIGBANG, WINNER, and iKON, the next boy group will also be created through a survival program.

The program is called “YG’s Box of Jewels” (literal translation) and includes Bang Ye Dam. Yang Hyun Suk explains, “‘YG’s Box of Jewels’ is a phrase often used by fans as complaints that once YG artists conclude promotions once, they are locked in the box of jewels and do not come out much. It is also negative language used openly by the media.”

He continues, “‘YG’s Box of Jewels’ has the format of unveiling every single male trainee of YG who hasn’t been revealed, and monitoring the judgements and selections of the viewers through the broadcast will be applied to the selection criteria. There are a total of 29 YG male trainees who will be revealed through the ‘YG’s Box of Jewels’ broadcast, and most of them are between the ages of 14 and 19. As the number of participants is much higher than when BIGBANG, WINNER, and iKON were selected, the competition is higher than ever.”

Petition to ban IZ*ONE from appearing on Music Bank raises controversy

A national petition to ban IZ*ONE from appearing on KBS, the Korean public television channel, and its music show “Music Bank” started on October 28. The original writer of the petition stated, “IZ*ONE is a project group from ‘Produce 48.’ The show was created through the cooperation of Mnet and AKB48. AKB48 is a well known group that actively supports the Japanese right wing and its activities. There are also members who performed at AKB48’s concert too. Thus the group should not appear on a national television channel that receives license fees from the public.” Approximately 12,000 people signed the petition by October 29, 2 p.m. KST.

IZ*ONE members Miyawaki Sakura, Yabuki Nako, and Honda Hitomi are a part of AKB48, and AKB48’s producer Yasushi Yakimoto, who wrote the lyrics for IZ*ONE’s “You’re In Love, Right?” is a well known supporter of the Japanese right wing. Issues regarding the Japanese right wing are a sensitive topic in Korea due to the history between the two countries, such as colonization and post war settlements.

Choreographer Lia Kim picks Twice's Momo as most talented idol dancer

Lia Kim appeared on MBC’s “Idol Radio” on October 28 to talk about a wide variety of topics including her work as a K-pop choreographer and which K-pop idol she thinks is the best dancer.

Lia Kim is a popular choreographer who is behind many memorable dance routines for songs such as Sunmi’s “Gashina,” TWICE’s “TT,” and I.O.I’s “Very Very Very.”

When asked to choose the idol she believes is the best dancer, Lia Kim picked TWICE’s Momo and didn’t hold back her praise. She said, “TWICE’s Momo is like a dancer sent down from the gods. She’s really good. Not even a sponge can describe what Momo is like, she’s able to start dancing right after she watches a routine. She’s able to recreate a choreography with very little explanation. She’s even able to take a routine and add her own charms and quirks to upgrade it to the next level.”
