Crown J makes his first Korean comeback in years with title track “LOLO (Life of Luxury Only)” off of his comeback EP of the same name.
Released on June 2, the music video for “LOLO” is just as suggestive as the lyrics of the song, which Crown J penned himself. “Can you keep it on the down low, low low, down low” he croons to his second woman. He also slips in references to his past run-ins with the popo, “Let’s get in some trouble, ‘cause I’m done with probation.”
After three year absence from the Korean music scene, it’s rather nice to have a Big Bang comeback that spans months rather than days. As we enter the second stage of Big Bang’s MADE comeback, expectations are still high, though some of the excitement has been lost.
Many fans were, overall, not very impressed with the offerings of Made Series [M], “Loser” and “Bae Bae” (though “Loser’s” lyrics and melancholic tune did sway listeners); and after saying that the first stage of this comeback was just the ‘appetiser’ and that the ‘main course’ was to follow in June, YG’s hype for [A] needed to pay off big time.
On the 16th episode of MBC"s Monday & Tuesday drama, Kang In-woo (Han Juwan) realized who Hwa-yi (Lee Yeon-hee) was.
In-woo met Heo Gyun (Ahn Nae-sang) and asked questions about his secret meeting with Hwa-yi previous night. Heo Gyun mentioned about Eye of Lady Buddha, "People say it belongs to Princess Jeongmyeong. I don"t know how he got it. But he has it".
In-woo was walking on the street while he was trying to piece his memories related to Eye of Lady Buddha together. He walked into Hwa-yi. In-woo asked her, "Is Hwa-yi your real name? I"m asking you if it is your real name". He asked her again, "Are you by any chance Her Highness Princess? Were you really Her Highness Princess?" Hwa-yi was silent.
The talented, original b-boy posted a video of him showing off his moves on his official Facebook page. The video starts off with him showing off his talent with popping, locking and moonwalking. And then the dance eventually veers towards the silly side, as he sways back and forth, has some crotch grabbing and eventually falls down.
