Mnet producer sentenced to jail for rigging votes

A producer of a popular K-pop audition program was sentenced to one year in prison for rigging the show's vote results in determining the final winners, a court ruled Thursday.

The Seoul Central District Court delivered the sentence to the producer, surnamed Kim, one of the creators of Mnet's 2017 show "Idol School,' on charges of obstruction of business. He was arrested in court.

Kim was indicted in July for manipulating the vote outcome of the program on Mnet, part of South Korean entertainment giant CJ ENM, together with a senior Mnet manager.

The manager, who was also indicted, was handed a 10 million won (US$8,960) fine as the court deemed him an accessory, not an accomplice of the crime.

"Hospital Playlist" aims to provide warmth amid pandemic

Amid a flood of Korean TV series with dramatic plots -- that has even coined the term "makjang" -- or those featuring badass heroes, one medical drama with a storyline featuring doctors' everyday routines and next-door neighbor characters captivated viewers last year.

"Hospital Playlist," directed by Shin Won-ho and written by Lee Woo-jung, is set to return next week, with Shin hoping that the series will provide a sense of warmth and optimism amid the new coronavirus pandemic.

"I hope it is a warm drama," Shin said in an online news conference Thursday, a week ahead of the second season's launch scheduled for June 17.

Former BTOB member Jung Il-hoon has been sentenced to prison.

On the 10th, during trial held at 2pm, Chief Judge Cheol-han of the Seoul Central District Court sentenced Il-hoon to 2 years in prison for habitually smoking marijuana. The court also judged that Il-hoon was a flight risk and arrested him in court.

Il-hoon is accused of conspiring with 7 people from July 2016-January 2019 and remitting 133 million won of marijuana to the unnamed person 161 times. He's also accused of buying marijuana and liquid hemp and smoking 161 times within the same period.

Prosecutors had initially demanded 4 years in prison and a fine of 133 million won.

In his final statement, Il-hoon appealed for leniency stating, "I was under extreme stress while working in the entertainment industry at a young age. I tried to solve this in the wrong way and have vowed not to depend on it ever again."

Naver and Kakao are competing to acquire Lee Sooman’s shares of SM Entertainment

A run-down with all the info:

- According to the IB industry, Lee Sooman, the largest shareholder of SM Entertainment has been attempting to selling his stake (18.73%) since last year. At that time, he was in contact with Tencent and other Chinese companies.

- At the beginning of this year, HYBE offered to negotiate but LSM rejected this offer. It’s said that Lee Soo Man rejected the offer because HYBE already understands how to run a K-Pop agency successfully. As such, this would leave no place for his expertise in the company. Thus, it seems that Lee intends to remain a key figurehead in the industry despite selling his stake in SM Entertainment.

- After contacting domestic and foreign IT and game companies, it is now into negotiations with Kakao and Naver.
