OK that MV was just OK. The song is just perfect for PENTAGON and the choreo is really good! Also, I like how CUBE started to incorporate some props/background of their foreign line's country of origin (like with Sorn in "No"). As they promote on music shows, Kino wont be able to join the stages because of his injury (its been 2 months but he still can't perform huhuhu).

Edit: Added the comeback showcase performances =)

Grandpa goes viral with "Crazy" cover

A man, 77, has wowed millions of people by performing his age-defying "Crazy" gig on a televised singing contest.

Ji Byung-soo belted out K-pop diva Son Dam-bi's up-tempo song "Crazy" on the March 24 episode of KBS TV's "National Singing Contest." He danced awkwardly to the song, but the performance went viral on major social media platforms. The clip of Ji's jaw-dropping act has garnered nearly 2 million YouTube views in only three days. "I realize my popularity," Ji said on Tuesday. "I love singing, regardless of genres. It was also rewarding to entertain people."

Son, who released the song in 2008, thanked Ji for singing it. In a show of appreciation, Son uploaded a clip of her dancing to the song and a thank-you message on her Instagram Wednesday. "I have prepared the 'response dance' to thank him for his enthusiasm," she wrote. "Please stay healthy and live long, grandpa ― I was surprised to see you dancing right on the beat."

Ji said he looks forward to performing with Son.

Yoon Ji Oh Takes Preventative Measures Against Potential Wrongful Death

Yoon Ji Oh has shared a document that proves the good state of her mental health.

The actress is a former colleague of the late Jang Ja Yeon, and she witnessed her being sexually assaulted and saw her preparing documents before her death. Jang Ja Yeon died in 2009 and left behind a list of powerful figures in the business and media industries that she had been forced to entertain.

Yoon Ji Oh has spent 10 years giving testimony to police prosecutors about Jang Ja Yeon’s case, and she recently has been conducting interviews with the press, talking publicly via social media, and urging other witnesses to come forward.

It's so scary that she felt like she had to provide legal documentation to make sure people knew that if she ends up dead during the investigation it's because she was murdered. I can't imagine how she feels right now. Hopefully the two month extension for the case will accomplish something.
