Red Velvet

Ravi Apologizes To Red Velvet Regarding New Song Lyrics

Ravi has apologized for lyrics in a song from his new album.

On June 3, the VIXX member released his new album “ROSES,” which includes a song titled “RED VELVET.” Many expressed discomfort at the lyrics such as “I take a bite out of a red velvet” as other lyrics such as “Russian Roulette” and “Dumb Dumb” seem to reference the group Red Velvet’s song titles. The lyrics also include parts that seem to use wordplay with names of the group’s members.

In response, Ravi released the following statement on June 4:

The song in question: Red Velvet (feat. Jamie). Making references to other artists is not new in rap but I don't know why he thought there wouldn't be push back in this case because the lyrics are obviously sexual

Park Jin-yong and PSY share their search for unique K-pop talents on "LOUD"

Producers Park Jin-young and Psy, who founded their own entertainment agency after reaching the peak of their K-pop careers as singers, are now on a search for unique talent to lead the booming K-pop scene with SBS's new audition show "LOUD."

"This is a joint project by Park Jin-young's JYP Entertainment, Psy's P Nation and SBS to form two worldwide boy groups, one for each agency… unlike previous audition shows that focused on the participants' appearance, dancing and singing, we value what's inside them," said series production chief Park Sung-hoon, known for the hit audition series "K-pop Star," during an online media conference for "LOUD," Thursday.

"The two producers (Park Jin-young and Psy) have something in common. They are both singers, producers and directors that lead the hallyu business. And when they first debuted on the K-pop scene (in the 1990s and early 2000s, respectively), they were quite sensational," the producer said. "With the two, we tried to capture the synergy they will create when meeting competent millennials from these days."

The article states that they have been working on the album for a long time, so some fans are speculating that they maybe even finished the album before participating in Kingdom. I wonder what that means for the growth they've shown on the program. Anyways, apart from a healthy Rowoon, what do you want to see from them for their next comeback?

Added the Korean sources too mods :)
