Business as usual? (G)I-DLE To Release New Song Without Soojin

(G)I-DLE will be releasing their new song “Last Dance (Prod. GroovyRoom)” without Soojin.

On April 19, Global K-pop entertainment platform UNIVERSE shared they have decided to release the song without Soojin due to the recent issue of school bullying allegations.

Read the statement below:

Hello, this is “For Fans, With Artists” UNIVERSE.

We would like to tell you about (G)I-DLE’s new song and music video produced by UNIVERSE Music.

(G)I-DLE finished recording “Last Dance (Prod. GroovyRoom),” making the music video, and creating additional content in February, and we had planned to release them at the end of April.

However, an issue related to (G)I-DLE’s Soojin occurred in March, and the group is currently working as a five-member group.

UNIVERSE discussed with (G)I-DLE’s agency Cube Entertainment about the song and music video, and considering the contractual relationship with distributors and partners and both tangible and intangible losses, we decided that it would be difficult to re-produce everything again. Therefore, we have decided to adjust the existing structure as follows.

DJ DOC Lee Ha-neul blames bandmate Kim Chang-yeol for his brother's death

Hip-hop group DJ DOC member Kim Chang-yeol is in the hot seat after his bandmate, Lee Ha-neul, accused him of being responsible for the death of his brother, Lee Hyun-bae, who was found dead at his house on Jeju Island Saturday.

The accusation was first made when Lee Ha-neul commented, "You killed my brother," on Kim's social media post that expressed condolences for Lee Hyun-bae's death.

In a live-streamed video on social media Monday, Lee Ha-neul further claimed that his brother, a member of hip-hop duo 45RPM, had been financially suffering because of Kim.

He explained that the brothers and Kim had made a joint investment to build a pension lodge on Jeju Island. Lee Hyun-bae had sold his apartment in Incheon and moved to Jeju to take part in the construction himself.
