LG’s virtual human to make debut as singer

LG Electronics said Tuesday it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Mystic Story, a local music label led by singer-song writer Yoon Jong-shin, to debut its virtual human ambassador, Reah Keem, as a singer.

Yoon, Mystic’s chief producer, will oversee the overall project from writing songs to vocal training for Keem. Her imminent debut was teased last week when LG unveiled a music video clip at the Consumer Electronics Show.

“I want to be an artist who not just makes music but also communicates with the public through diverse artistic elements such as visual art and fashion,” Keem said in a statement.

Jay Park to set up new agency to create idol group

Jay Park might be launching an idol group in the future!

Previously, Jay Park announced that he will be stepping down from his position as CEO of both AOMG and H1GHR MUSIC, and fans were curious what he would do next. According to industry representatives, he is working on establishing a new label so that he can launch an idol group. In particular, Kakao Entertainment is expected to make a large investment in it.

Jay Park first made his appearance in the K-pop industry as an idol when he debuted as a member of 2PM in 2008. On top of that, he is talented in hip hop and R&B, so he is expected to create a unique idol group that is very different from existing idols.

Industry representatives commented, “Just like JYP Park Jin Young successfully [created] a large number of idol groups with his colors, Jay Park will be able to bring a new wave to the music industry by producing idols with his own style.”

On January 11, Kakao Entertainment responded to the reports, saying, “Jay Park is an artist with talent in various fields as a singer and producer, and we are currently discussing various types of business partnerships, but nothing has been specifically confirmed.”

(TW) Billie and Oh My Girl members talk about intense diet regulations set up by their agencies

On Jan 6th, the 23rd episode of the web entertainment show “Is Jjung’s home empty?” hosted by Oh My Girl‘s Hyo-jung and Binnie?’ was released on the YouTube channel DUM DUM STUDIO.

New girl group Billie members Moon Soo-ah and Soo-hyun, who appeared as guests of the episode, were excited, saying it was their first time eating meat in a really long time.

Oh My Girl's Binnie then recalled her early debut days and said she feels sorry for her juniors and that the Billie members had not been able to eat meat for a long time due to their diet. Binnie also confessed that her agency prevented her from going to the mart. Billie members also agreed, saying that they were limited from going to the mart even before their debut.

However, Binnie said, “It’s all useless,” adding, “Even if the agency doesn’t restrict us, we will realize that later and manage it by ourselves”.
