In today sucks: YG walks free

The prosecution has concluded that they cannot charge Yang Hyun Suk with mediating prostitution.

Previously, Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency’s Provincial Special Detective Division revealed plans to forward a recommendation of non-indictment for Yang Hyun Suk regarding suspicions of mediating prostitution. After the search and seizure investigation of YG Entertainment’s financial accounts, police sources revealed that while they found money transfers, there was not enough evidence to prove the prostitution mediation suspicions. Furthermore, although there was evidence that confirmed Yang Hyun Suk met with investors from Southeast Asia, there was no evidence that was directly connected to prostitution.

According to legal sources on November 25, the Division of Crimes Against Women & Children of the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office suspended the indictment of Yang Hyuk Suk on September 30 regarding the suspicion of mediating prostitution.

Will 2019 MAMA go as planned?

The upcoming 2019 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) are taking another heavy blow as an ongoing police probe over the music channel's idol survival shows is eating into its lineup.

Earlier this week, police took into custody the director and chief producer of Mnet's high-profile audition show, "Produce 101," on charges that they fixed the final vote result of the show's latest fourth season.

The police said they have also booked at least one ranking official at the channel's operator and entertainment giant CJ ENM while broadening its investigation into the program's previous three seasons as well as other audition shows by Mnet.

Jam Jam

Heejoon takes Jam Jam to the recording studio. Jam Jam goes on her first errand. How cute and smart is Jam Jam? We also get to hear Soyul sing again. William and Bentley are still in Melbourne, and their Nana makes them special Halloween treats. Sam wants to relieve his childhood with the boys, and William plays a trick on him. Then they have a picnic, and visit the zoo. Ben with the kangaroos was so cute! Jooho sets up a gym in Gunhoo’s room. Then he takes the kids to the park. He seriously must have a Google alert for anything trendy. He only takes the kids to the “hot place” lol. They also visit a zoo and then take pics in pink grass. I’ve never seen that kind of grass before. So pretty!

mods, I hope it's okay that I chose not to post the whole thing - it was too damn long. But I did add the videos for the top 20 hoping this might be a nice way for some of us to remember some good things about 2010s Kpop. The whole list doesn't always make sense to me but it also has some of my favourite kpop songs ever. I'm pretty sure it's missing a lot of them but I haven't had the time to find which ones yet so I'm mostly fine with it for now! Most especially, I'm very very satisfied with #14, #11, #10, #7 and #3 tbh. #1 is a whole anthem and I love it. #8 on the other hand...

Congratulations boys! I'm glad they took home the Tour of the year one. It was well deserved. I've seen all of the 4 concerts they did in Paris for this tour and I had a blast. Not sure I'll ever get a chance to ever see them again if they push forward with the whole lottery system they've used for the 5th muster/Seoul concerts.
