Spring Goddess Park Bom Shares Plans to conquer fall



Park Bom is getting ready for a comeback!

A source from D-Nation stated in a call with Star News that Park Bom is preparing for a comeback slated for this fall. They said, “She is currently working on the music.”

On June 3, Park Bom did the opening performance at the 56th Grand Bell Awards. The source from her agency explained, “She was invited to perform at the Grand Bell Awards. She was planning to take a break from all broadcasting activities until her comeback, but she decided to perform because she had never performed for an event like the Grand Bell Awards and because she loves films.”

The source added, “She has had many activities in 2019, and performing alone as a solo artist weakened her stamina. She has been refraining from broadcasting activities, resting, eating well, and regaining her energy. Her health has gotten much better now.”

Rain goes viral with his "Gang" MV from 2017 and even scores himself a CF

Singer Rain is unfazed by the sudden popularity of his old music video, knowing full well the less than flattering reason behind it.

“Gang”, from Rain’s mini-album My Life (2017), came back into the spotlight six months ago when a high school student uploaded a 27-second dance cover video of the song on YouTube. The cover video, which has over 2.2 million views (OP note: now over 4.2 mio), brought attention to the original.



Rain’s iconic performance style -- exaggerated motions, intense eye contact with the camera and difficult dance moves -- did not impress the younger generation. Rather, young viewers found the video funny.

The original “Gang” video has attracted over 8.7 million views as of Monday as people are curious about the “bizarre” dance moves. What started as a mockery of the star’s dancing soon turned into a form of stress relief for people struggling with the COVID-19 crisis, offering a good laugh.

Korean Hip-Hop - Part 2. A Way of Life

As Korean hip-hop continued to develop, the artists became acutely aware of the fine line walked between ‘disrespect’ and ‘respect.’ Diss battles began to steal the stage, but there was also a maturity and level of respect that artists maintained through it all.

Korean hip-hop grew into a way of life, impacting people of all ages and walks of life. We’ll introduce you to some college students with a love for rhyme, and bring you exclusive interviews with major artists like MC Meta, San E, Huck P, Ja Mezz and insights from hip-hop journalist Kim Bong-hyeon.

AB6IX’s Lim Young Min Writes Apology Letter After DUI

He posted a handwritten letter to the AB6IX fan cafe:

"Hello, this is Lim Young Min.
First, I’m so ashamed and sorry to be giving you such disgraceful news.
I am sincerely sorry for disappointing the many people and fans who have been showing me love and waiting for me.

I feel pathetic and pained to have to become a disgraceful hyung to the members, who have been indelibly wounded because of me. Also, I want to sincerely apologize to the agency staff who have suffered great damages because of this.

The members and many staff members worked so hard for a long time to prepare for this comeback, but because of my foolish and irresponsible mistake, their efforts were undermined, and so I am deeply ashamed…

I am keenly aware of all of my mistakes, and I am deeply regretting and reflecting. I will accept all of the criticism over my irreversible actions and reflect.

To everyone who believed in me and supported me, including my fans, group members, agency staff, and family members… I sincerely… I once again sincerely apologize…"
