I didn't include the 5 tracks previously released on MOTS: PERSONA because I'm lazy and we've heard them all a million times before. I'm not ready to comment yet. I like a lot of what I'm hearing (come thru, main vocalist JK!!) but damn, it's good that I'm okay with autotune because there's a lot of it in there.

Seungri Reported To Enlist In March + Military Manpower Administration Responds

On February 21, Sports Seoul reported that Seungri is quietly preparing to enlist to the 6th Infantry Recruit Training Center on March 6. According to the source, Seungri has chosen to enlist in the military rather than defer his enlistment again following the draft notice issued by the Military Manpower Administration (hereafter MMA) to Seungri on February 4.

Following reports, a source from the MMA responded, “We cannot confirm the status of Seungri’s enlistment. We cannot reveal personal matters regarding military service.”

Recently, the MMA announced that they sent Seungri a military draft notice “for the purpose of fair imposition of the duty of military service following the conclusion of his investigations.” Seungri was previously scheduled to enlist as an active duty soldier on March 25, 2019, but his enlistment was postponed in order for him to participate in the ongoing police investigations.

If Seungri enlists in March, his trials will be held in the military courts. On January 30, Seungri was indicted without detention for mediating prostitution services, habitual gambling, and violation of the Foreign Exchange Transactions Act.

Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! Every week I go through the charts for this day and share the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, let’s go back to the 3rd week of February, 2010.

#3 Girls’ Generation “Oh!”
Personally, not my favorite song from SNSD, but most definitely my favorite era. They’re so damn cute! Cute styling and cute choreography and I still love it so much! The album and the song itself were big hits, making it one of the best selling songs of the year. Here is their Music Core stage, from exactly 10 years and 1 day ago. Brb, putting my hair into a side pony.
