Seo Taiji and IU release 'Sogyeokdong'

Article: [Hot 100 New Tracks] Seo Taiji and IU's fairy tale 'Sogyeokdong'

TV Report via Naver

1. [+1,393, -306] I'm listening to it now and there's a strong Seo Taiji feel to it. I think it'll take a few listens to get used to but the song's good.

2. [+1,206, -229] The song is dreamy, it sounds nice... one thing I don't like is how loud the beat is, it buries the voices...

3. [+1,007, -227] Jieun-ah, the song's great. Jjang jjang Jieun.

4. [+889, -206] Wow.. good.. seriously

5. [+388, -45] It doesn't sound like Seo Taiji's color at first but also does at the same time. You hear IU's voice but you can still tell it's Seo Taiji's song.

6. [+386, -50] Totally Seo Taiji's style ㅋㅋ but it sounds different hearing IU's voice in it

7. [+364, -94] I've been a fan for a while and was disappointed with his recent actions but I guess it goes to show that singers speak through their songs ㅠㅠ It's a good song

8. [+316, -65] Just listened to it... Definitely Seo Taiji's song... even if IU's the one singing it, you can still tell it's him... Good song ^^

Newsen via Nate [2]

Hanna, who debuted in 2004 briefly under JYP Entertainment with 'Bounce', promoted actively with albums in 2006 and 2008 before going into acting in 2011. She commit suicide January of this year in her home. She suffered from panic disorders.

1. [+230, -5] May she rest in peace. Makes me choke up to think what a dark place she must've been in. I hope her passion blooms into a new flower and she rests peacefully in a place with no pain or sadness.

2. [+176, -3] So unfortunate... May she rest in peace.

3. [+30, -1] I remember liking her debut song and buying her album... So unfortunate ㅠ May she rest in peace

4. [+7, -2] She was under JYP.. ㅠ I wonder why she never got the spotlight? She should've used the bravery to kill herself to try and live again... I wonder how hard it must've been for her. Rest in peace.

5. [+6, -0] I still listen to Bounce and Luxury

6. [+6, -0] She's the Hanna who sang Luxury, right?


Is a member leave inevitable in idol-dom?

Article: WG, KARA, SNSD... is a member leave the end of idol-dom?

Source: 10asia via Naver

1. [+16,806, -607] We've protected it for 17 years, who's the winner!! - Shinhwa

2. [+16,197, -964] Thinking about it now, I guess Wonder Girls were the most loyal... Former and current members are all still really close ㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+13,953, -651] The Wonder Girls ended up being the cleanest of them all

4. [+9,442, -321] They're all just searching for their own paths. It's not like being an idol lasts you forever. Some of the SNSD members are branching into acting too anyway.

5. [+8,566, -393] Idol loyalty is life = Shinhwa!!

6. [+2,489, -370] A Pink acts fu*king innocent ㅋㅋㅋ but they're the ones who used Hong Yookyung's wealthy father to even pay for their dorms before throwing her out ㅋㅋ And they got popular off of No No No as soon as she was booted.. A Pink are selfish kids if you think about it ㅋㅋㅋ Just that their concept makes them look innocent.. ㅋㅋ

7. [+1,884, -131] After seeing what happened to Jessica, it made me realize that the WG members and JYP are really nice people for genuinely supporting Sunye

8. [+1,718, -66] Remember none of the FinKL members attended Hyori's wedding ㅋㅋㅋ

9. [+1,707, -139] At least WG and KARA members never attacked each other. SNSD is turning into a total makjang with the way they're attacking and booting each other.

10. [+1,331, -67] JYP seems loyal with how they renewed Sunye's contract. The members all still seem really close too. I hope we can see them all again sometime.


SISTAR to perform at the Asian Games closing ceremony

Article: SISTAR to perform at the closing ceremony for Incheon AG "Honored by a meaningful stage"

Newsen via Newsen

1. [+208, -8] Since when did the Asian Games become a K-Pop festival?

2. [+141, -12] Are they going to turn the closing ceremony into an award ceremony too?

3. [+148, -59] With SNSD ending up like this and 2NE1 quieting down because of that druggie plastic monster and KARA on the downfall with the member change, SISTAR seems like the new girl group #1?

4. [+14, -9] Wow, what is this, some idol festival? Why not just make Hyuna sing 'Red' while you're at it too?

5. [+8, -0] Must we have them shaking their butts in front of all of the Asians watching? I'd rather we have someone like Song So Hee show the beauty of Korea with a traditional kukak performance.

1. [+2,376, -77] Wow, this is ridiculous ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ They just turned the Asian Games into some local athletic competition ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+1,927, -50] It'd be best they don't perform if they don't want to be hated by the nation...

3. [+1,761, -88] Isn't SISTAR on the level where any small to mid sized company can buy them to perform for them? Asian Games are so disappointing tsk tsk

4. [+1,605, -51] What? Seriously? The Asian Games just continues to disappoint

5. [+1,477, -48] Embarrassing until the very end ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ What an international embarrassment

6. [+321, -15] I get that the ending ceremony should be something exciting like the London Olympics but the problem is that people were afraid this would turn into an idol festival and it's turning into just that. So many artists we can have perform and yet they hire all the idols...

7. [+297, -14] Hopefully they won't be shaking their butts in diaper outfits at the closing ceremony too?

8. [+225, -10] The absolute worst... So embarrassing how they're turning this into some idol talent show

Source: Ilgan Sports via Naver

1. [+4,155, -137] Kwang Soo's setting up a new agency by just changing the name... But then again, the CCM name gets so much hate already..

2. [+3,457, -61] The CEO's determination... is about as on par with his artists ^^

3. [+2,683, -44] They come up with the best tricks

4. [+2,064, -65] T-ara's determination is as amazing as always

5. [+1,998, -68] Can T-Trash be sent over to China please

6. [+226, -8] I wish Son Ho Jun would leave Core, it's a waste of his talent ㅜㅜ

7. [+194, -6] Didn't know Ha Suk Jin was under Core... Suk Jin hyung, leave already

8. [+183, -7] Son Ho Jun is in that company? Leave... he doesn't match it

1. [+355, -4] Ho Jun-ah, change agencies

2. [+223, -5] Haetae-ya~~ Move to Chilbong or Samchunpo's~~~ Core is not where you belong~~

3. [+143, -5] They're leaving for China now that they aren't doing so well in Korea ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+13, -0] Go out of business my butt, they're just changing their name. This company gives me the creeps like those shady ones you see in the movies.

5. [+9, -1] They're just changing the name. Everything else is staying the same.
