[Album Review] San E – “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”

6. Feeling Good Now (feat. Yang Dong Geun, Don Mills)
7. Me You (feat. Baek Ye Rin Of 15&)
8. $$o Dope (feat. Vasco, C Jamm)
9. I Wanted to Succeed



Originally signed with JYP Entertainment, rapper San E left the company in 2013, cranking out two mini-albums and a string of accessible and successful singles. Now, he"s dropped his first full-length album, "The Boy Who Cried Wolf."

The standout track on here is "Me You," with Baek Ye Rin of 15&. I liked this before it hit all-kill status, and I thought it to be quite good. I"ve raved previously about Ye Rin"s vocal abilities, particularly on 15&"s debut release. "Me You" is the odd bird on this album, standing out like a goldfish in a bowl of punch.



The rest of the album is less than stellar. My problem is that nearly every song on here is just dreary. Either he"s going through the motions or he"s trying to tell an emotional story in a depressed tone. His normally sharp timbre is practically monotone, and his flow is uneven. There is little beat, sometimes odd vocal choices as accompaniment, and almost no instrumentation. Why am I not going through this LP track by track? That"s the reason. Each song suffers from the exact same flaws.

To prove my point, listen to any of the tracks on the album and compare it to the other singles he"s released. "Tasty San" was a heckuva lot of fun and the video was hilarious. Previous songs such as "Break Up Dinner," "Body Language," and "Story of Someone I Know" are all good tunes. They all have sick beats, at least a stab at a melody, great hooks, and they quite frankly pop. "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" seems to lack any of the essential qualities that make those tracks great and, indeed, eschews them entirely. As always, YMMV.



When I first downloaded this, I was pretty stoked. I was hoping for tracks like the ones I mentioned, as well as something similar to "A Midsummer Night"s Sweetness," the song he did with Raina from After School. It makes no sense to me because the artists he collaborates with on this disc are top-notch talent. I was let down by this tepid release. Here"s hoping for a stronger comeback next album!

In the following interview, UEE shared her candid feelings about her completed drama, "Hogu"s Love". She said, "As the drama dealt with such sensitive subjects as unmarried single mom and rape, I wanted to do it even better" and "I was mad with the reality that the victims, who should be protected for sure, are being criticized. I hope this drama provides people with a small opportunity to think again about the hurt women".

She also talked about herself saying, "Unlike my public cold image, like a rose with thorns, I"m actually goofy and used to get scolded many times on the set for being loud".

Korean Government Provides Large Incentives for Foreign Films like “Avengers 2″

It appears as though Korea might be the backdrop for many foreign films going forward.

As highlighted in a recent SBS News report, the Korean government is heavily supporting the production of foreign films on its soil, providing both logistic and monetary support to foreign film companies. For the filming of “Avengers 2,” which spanned two weeks in the Spring of last year, the government closed a major bridge in Seoul for an entire day. In addition, production companies of films shot in the country are eligible to receive back 30 percent of the money they spend domestically. In the case of “Avengers 2,” this compensation totals around 2.8 million dollars.

Oh My Girl Create Romance in “Cupid” Written by Morgan On April 27, 2015

The newest girl group to debut this Spring, Oh My Girl, has followed in the footsteps of many new groups by pursing the cute concept in its debut track “Cupid”. The group is made up of 8 members, with each boasting talent and good looks. However, will this debut stand out from the rest?

Coming from the company WM Entertainment, that bought us the quirky and fun B1A4, Oh My Girl seems to have taken a similar debut route by pursing a cute but funny concept. They even rehash a similar colourful street set that has been seen in many of B1A4’s MV’s. This doesn’t mean that Oh My Girl is just a female version of B1A4, even if they have been presented as a sister group. While B1A4 was more quirky cute, Oh My Girl seems to have gone the more traditional route by basing its cute concept on innocence.

‘Rush Hour 4’ Ad Starring Lee Byun Hun Turns Out To Be A 'Funny Or Die' Parody

When a billboard showing Lee Byung Hun and Sean “Diddy” Combs appeared over a bar on Hollywood Boulevard, many media outlets assumed it was an ad for an actual upcoming sequel in the “Rush Hour” series that previously starred Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker. However, it turns out the ad was just part of the set-up for a funny “Funny or Die” parody video.

While it would not be surprising for Lee Byung Hun to be cast in another Hollywood film, following his appearance in “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “Red” and the upcoming films “Terminator Genysis” and "Beyond Decit," not everyone was convinced the billboard was for real. The online publication The Daily Beast, suspected that rapper, actor and entrepreneur Combs was creating another parody to follow his recent funny “Downton Diddy” video.
