American version of "I Can See Your Voice" to premiere this month



Actress Cheryl Hines and vocalist Adrienne Bailon-Houghton join host Ken Jeong and a rotating panel of celebrity detectives, composed of comedians and pop culture experts, and a musical superstar to help one contestant tell the difference between good and bad singers, without ever hearing them sing a note. With $100,000 on the line, the contestant attempts to weed out the bad “secret voices” from the good, based on a series of clues, interrogation and lip synch challenges. In the end, the singer whom the contestant picks reveals good or bad singing in a duet performance with the musical superstar, resulting in an amazing musical collaboration or a totally hilarious train wreck.

Pets (and their humans) confirmed for "2020 Idol Woof Woof Championship"




Local broadcaster MBC announced Thursday the name of 11 K-pop stars who will participate in a dog agility competition.

The lineup of the "2020 Idol Woof Woof Championship" includes MAMAMOO's Moonbyul, GOT7's Youngjae, Golden Child's Jaehyun and Bomin, (G)I-DLE's Shuhua, Lovelyz's Jisoo, Cosmic Girls' (WJSN) Soobin, Loona's HeeJin and Choerry, Kim Woo-seok and former Wonder Girls member Yubin.

It is the first time a Korean entertainment program has featured a dog agility competition, in which a handler directs the animal through an obstacle course without touching or offering the dog incentives like food.

"For two months of training, the stars and their dogs interacted closely and made good memories," MBS said. "Some dogs showed potential to become dog-agility professionals."

The show will air in fall, but the exact date has not been set.

Non-Korean "K-Pop" singers raise identity questions about Korean pop music

"K-pop groups" with no Korean members are not hard to find these days. JYP Entertainment, a local record label, recently unveiled the all-Japanese girl group NiziU, just a year after seven-member Chinese boy-band WayV was revealed by its rival SM Entertainment. Before these, there was the all-American boy group EXP Edition, which made its debut in Korea in 2017.

Such acts usually set their sights on international markets while branding themselves as K-pop singers ― displaying and highlighting K-pop characteristics such as a blend of assorted music genres, but with an emphasis on choreography.
