Police conduct search and seizures of multiple agencies regarding PDX101 vote manipulation

The police have carried out search and seizures of entertainment agencies in their investigation of vote manipulation during Mnet’s “Produce X 101.”

On October 1, the Cyber Investigation Unit of the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency conducted searches of agencies including Starship Entertainment, MBK Entertainment, and Woollim Entertainment to search for materials related to vote manipulation in the “Produce X 101” series. This investigation of agencies comes after searches at Mnet headquarters and the text vote data company.

Starship Entertainment released a statement regarding the investigation. The agency told media outlet Newsen, “We are aware that the police are collectively investigating CJ ENM and related companies for suspicions of vote manipulation during the ‘Produce’ program. We will diligently meet the police’s requests for cooperation.”

A source from the police also provided an update, saying, “We have questioned the production team of the show and are currently analyzing the original data. Afterwards, we will conduct additional questioning of related parties.”

“Produce X 101” is currently under investigation for suspicions of vote manipulation after votes for the finale were called into question for being statistically impossible. Since the allegations came to light, suspicions have been brought up for the previous seasons of “Produce 101” and the 2018 survival show “Idol School.”

Former 2AM member Jinwoon adresses suspicions of him being member of Jung Joon Young’s chat

Jeong Jinwoon has spoken up about rumors that he was a member of a chatroom with Jung Joon Young.

In April, rumors arose that the cast of JTBC’s “Hitmaker” were part of a chatroom with Jung Joon Young. The chatroom was originally created with a purpose of sharing notices necessary for the filming of “Hitmaker,” but Jung Joon Young reportedly shared an illegally taken photo of a flight attendant and mentioned the ordering of prostitution services abroad.

As Jeong Jinwoon filmed “Hitmaker” with Jung Joon Young, he became a suspected participant of the chatroom. Following the news, Jeong Jinwoon’s agency responded that because the singer is serving in the military, it would be difficult to confirm the facts.

On October 1, Jeong Jinwoon posted on his official fan cafe and addressed the rumors directly.

The following is the statement from Jeong Jinwoon:

English-only kindergartens in Korea cost more than medical schools

The average one-year tuition for English-only kindergartens here is 11.59 million won ($9,660), nearly double the average tuition of domestic universities (6.71 million won) and even higher than that of medical schools (9.63 million won). Nevertheless their number has increased by 41 percent over the past two years on the back of unwavering demand for early English education for children among deep-pocketed families.

While many of the kindergartens are in Seoul's affluent Gangnam area, those in Incheon, Jeju Island and Busan also flourish.

Top model Han Hye-jin will return to MBC TV's "I Live Alone" this week nearly seven months after she broke up with TV personality Jun Hyun-moo.

They left the popular reality show after their breakup was announced in March.

The episode featuring Han will be aired this Saturday, according to MBC. "Han recently wrapped up a studio filming for the October 4 episode," a MBC spokesman said.

The spokesman did not clarify whether Han's appearance was one-off. "For now, she'll be appearing this week," he said.





Yay! I really liked her on the show, she seemed genuinely close to the other members.

Jackson Wang Talks Solo Music, Got7 & His friendship with RM


Source: Zach Sang Show

....and about how he feels about his success (drinking game: take a sip every time Jackson says he's #blessed), about GOT7, why he stopped doing varieties to focus on his solo music, creating Team Wang, the difference/connection between "art" and "business", working with Boytoy, on the (age old) stereotype of kpop being manifactured, his definition of an "idol", what part in the creative process fulfills him the most, his 5 life goals, etc.

The questions that Zach asked were pretty good and interesting imo.
