NOT OVER YET

Surprise Surprise, thought you’d seen the last of 2NE1 didn’t you?

2NE1 are coming back for their definite last release GOOD BYE. The song is finished and the MV has been filmed already.

However, this is not as pretty as it seems. Apparently, this track GOOD BYE was originally supposed to be CL’s new US release. Though this is just rumor, there is already loads of people commenting it.

Personally, I hope this is only a rumor indeed. I think it’s great that they are getting together one last time to gift this to their fans, but if that’s the story behind the song, doesn’t it brush off the whole special meaning of this?

Regardless, I’m excited about this upcoming release. Can’t wait to see what 2NE1 have prepared as a final gift for their fans!

NOT OVER YET

READY, SET, ISAC!

Another year, another championship!img_20170106_090124

It has been announced that the 2017 ISAC are a go! Recording is set to happen on January 16th and airing date hasn’t been announced yet. Above are the groups scheduled to take part on this edition. Please note that I’m not sure if this is the final line-up.

I was looking forward to see KARD… Guess these co-ed kings and queens still have a few things to overcome… BUT THEY WILL GET THERE

Just one question… is ALL of NCT going to take part in this? I mean NCT U has what 6 members? Uhhh Taeil, Taeyong, Ten, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Mark. Yeah 6. Then it’s NCT 127 whis has 9 members but you gotta exclude Taeil, Taeyong, Jaehyun, Doyoung and Mark which make 5 so, 4 members. NCT Dream is 7 members but excluding  Mark and Haechan its only 5 so there are 15 members… Eh now that I did the math it’s not such an extraordinary number but it’ll probably only be NCT 127 or perhaps NCT 127 + NCT U. I don’t see NCT Dream taking part in this, SM likes to keep the kids in the dungeon. We’ll see though! Are you excited about this year’s ISAC?

Check out my posts about past years’ ISACs!

READY, SET, ISAC!

WHAT ABOUT A MALE VERSION OF IOI?

You guys, I got news

101-finale-1-800x450

As 2017 approaches, we might be seeing the last of IOI, but we definitely haven’t seen the last of MBC and their experiement with 101 trainees. It has been confirmed that the TV station is currently in talks with several labels with a male verison of Produce 101 in mind.

With the amount of boy groups that debuted recently, it is unlikely that some of the big companies will take part in this project. In fact, SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment have already announced that their trainees won’t be joining this project, as expected – just like what happened on the first season. This could be a chance for smaller companies to show the industry their hidden cards. However, I believe it’s going to be quite difficult to come up with 101 trainees under labels willing to take part in this in such short period of time, as filming is set to start next January and airing time around February/March 2017.

I have to say, I’m quite excited to see how this will workout. More than I was before Produce 101.

WHAT ABOUT A MALE VERSION OF IOI?

LOVE FOR WINNER

FYI, WINNER IS STILL ALIVE

Not even a week after the announcement of Taehyun’s departure from WINNER, I’m extremely happy to announce that 1/2 of the current line up is set to star on Naver’s upcoming webdrama Love For A Thousand More – premiers on December 5th, 2016.

Seungyoon and Jinwoo, alongside Hwang Seung Eon, will be the leads. The main couple will be played by Seungyoon and Seung Eon. The plot consists of Mizo (Seung Eon), a 1 000 year old immortal woman who offers love counseling services based on her experience over the millennium. Eventually, she ends up meeting her true love – the unpredictable Jun Woo (Seungyoon), the leader of an hip hop crew called Krunk Soul (LOL). Jin Woo will play the role of Hyungsik, who aspires to be a stand-up comedian, even though things aren’t going so well.

The videos above are Jinwoo and Seungyoon’s teasers. In Jinwoo’s, the last scene (where he is left on the street with some other friend), the guy suggested the three leads are in some sort of love triangle… Could it be what this webdrama will be about? I HOPE NOT. IVE HAD ENOUGH OF CRYING FOR WINNER. I CRIED FOR TAEHYUN’S SOLO MV. I CRIED FOR HIS DEPARTURE. WILL I HAVE TO CRY OVER JINWOO FACING THE 2ND MALE LEAD SYNDROME? SATAN BETTER NOT

Anyway, should I start some sort of review thread once this drama airs?

p.s.- anyone else wondering what seunghoon has been up to?

LOVE FOR WINNER

WHAT EVEN IS GOING ON

Talk about a hot freaking fraken crusty god damn ugly mess? That’s Yang Hyun Suk and his incredible skill to manage artists!

nam-taehyun

Yall I was hella professional on my 2NE1 post but on this one i don’t even care imma get all emotional and shit cos this god damn company managed to fuck up one of the most innocent pure and unprotected groups in the K-Pop industry – WINNER

I’m not even going to start with the blah blah blah it has been announced that Nam Taehyun has lefTYDSGFD I CANT EVEN SAY IT

So, for who doesn’t know, Taehyun had been taking some time off WINNER’s activities in order to take care of his mental health, with which, I ENHANCE, he has been struggling with SINCE TRAINEE DAYS

Once again, WE, FANS, were disappointed – not at Taehyun, at YG – because it meant that ONCE AGAIN WINNER’s activities were getting postponed. Adding up to worrying about Taehyun’s state, this was when we began entering hell without even knowing.

Recently I had frequently thought about Taehyun and wondered how his recovery was developing. He often updated fans on Instagram and he seemed to be enjoying himself, all of us understood that as signs that he was getting better and that, maybe, his hiatus would be coming to an end soon. I’m upset because I, absolutely, did not foresee this. It’s always a bad sign when members decide to take an hiatus but I was so sure he was going to come back. I couldn’t believe myself when I found out he had left. I don’t care if this sounds cheesy but I nearly teared up.

How much does it take for one to make a decision like this while on hiatus? He was taking time off, yet he kept thinking about how he couldn’t endure it anymore? This breaks my heart. Yall, all he wanted was to sing, why was it so hard for YG to make that happen? WINNER didn’t god damn go through years of training and that hell of survival show to be treated like this. I’ve been trying not bring iKON into this all along because those boys are in NO WAY at fault here but the truth is bitch ass Yang Hyun Suk has favored iKON since the beginning. Even after WINNER won that stupid ass show the guy gathered them and locked them away in the dungeon only to channel all his attention to iKON’s debut AND ITS JUST NOT FREAKING FAIR

After all that has happened with YG Entertainment artists, I’m truly scared to see where this is going because I no longer know what to expect. From what we have seen, their information isn’t trustworthy and their artists suffer from terrible mismanagement.

I deeply wish Taehyun the best of luck for the future, I’m sad things turned out like this but I hope he chose what makes him happier and that, in the future, he goes back to do amazing music like he did with WINNER.

To the members of WINNER, I hope they manage to get through this terrible phase, that they stick together in order to support each other because that’s all they got right now in a company like YG.

imma leave you guys with all my feels frustrations emotions BLOOD SWEAT TEARS chest pains and last squeals of fangirling over taehyun aka member of winner in a nutshell which is taehyun’s last music video in winner. its okey to shed a tear

WHAT EVEN IS GOING ON

GOODBYE 2NE1

Eventually, it all comes to an end…

fxzlwl3

Like most of you, I too still don’t know how to express myself on this matter. It’s not like this was unexpected after Minzy’s departure earlier this year, we just didn’t know when it was going to happen and how would the fandom deal with it.

If you didn’t read my post regarding Minzy’s departure, here’s the key element to understanding my opinion on this issue – I don’t stan 2ne1. However, that doesn’t mean I turn a blind eye when recognizing 2ne1’s success and talent. Yeah, their music wasn’t my thing, but I acknowledge how talented the four of them are, how hard they worked to get where they are today. Only few succeed in acheiving what they acheived.

This is extremly frustrating, any K-Pop insider knows what lead to this miserable ending – YG Entertainment’s terrible management of their artists. YG has been producing some of the most renowned artists in the K-Pop industry, including PSY, who will remain as a legend for all eternity thanks to his song Gangnam Style – the most popular music video ever – and literally brought the korean pop music industry to a whole new level. Saying they train their artists to be the best is one thing, but saying they’re a good company in terms of support is another.

At this point, we’ve all realized that the “YG Family” is kind of lacking the Family concept as all they really do is boss their artists around and shove them inside the basement when they don’t need them. No wonder they’re all so disciplined, who would want to act freely when you live your life in such environment?

Another thing that is slightly bothering me, and not many people have mentioned, is that it’s becoming quite evident that when labels start to sleep on their own artists and give this one person a special focus, things will quickly take a turn to the ugly side. I mean, haven’t we gone through this before? It wasn’t even that long ago… 4Minute? Is it that weird to compare HyunA to CL? Not in terms of style, personality or popularity. But the situation is pretty similar. An extremly talented group, successful aswell, containing that one member that for a set of reasons appeals to the fans more than the others and quickly begins to stand out, overshadowing the rest of the group; eventually the atmosphere among the members becomes heavy and before we can tell, nobody is renewing contracts and each has chose their path.

I’m not trying to blame this on CL or HyunA or whichever group this situation may be comparable to, they have total right to work on their solo projects and I don’t oppose to that in any way. The thing is, on these situations, labels should try and create some balance between things because that’s why they exist, that’s why artists need managers. However, all of it is pointless if things are going to turn out like this because a company can’t even do their job.

GOODBYE 2NE1
