Let's Discuss: INFINITE & The SM-Woollim Merger [Blog]

By in News posted Oct July 28th, 2014 No comments

Let"s go back a little less than a year ago in Seoul: INFINITE gets up on stage at the first night of their world tour, performs a bit, and then starts to talk. With tears on their eyes, they apologize and promise fans that things won"t change, and swear that INFINITE will always be INFINITE.

No, a member didn"t leave, but news broke that day anouncing that INFINITE"s company, Woollim Entertainment, would be merging with SM C&C. And yet, in that moment, sitting in the audience, and only picking up every few words with my limited knowledge of Korean, I thought that INFINITE was disbanding. Or, at the very least, a member was heading to the army. The way that INFINITE acted towards Inspirit (the group"s fanclub), seemed like the members had to apologize for practically killing someone

By in News posted Oct July 28th, 2014 No comments

Boy band LC9 has uploaded a third teaser video as the clock ticks down to the release of new material at noon on July 29. It is still not clear whether the release will come in the form of an album or a single, but what does seem sure is that its title will be “The Half Time.”

In the last few days, a seven-second-long excerpt of the song has been uploaded as a video teaser, and a teaser featuring member King has also been posted to the group’s official YouTube account.

The latest teaser features J-Hyo, who, like King in the previous teaser, sings a very short section of the song into a microphone. If Naga Network, the boys’ talent agency, follows through with more individual teasers, fans could well be in store for yet more videos to drop during the course of July 28 and the morning of July 29

The upcoming release “Sea Fog” has been selected as a Gala film at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The Toronto International Film Festival will be held from September 4 through September 14.

“Sea Fog” is based on the Korean play “Haemoo” and marks the directorial debut of Shim Sung Bo.

“Haemoo” was not entirely fictitious, as it was based on actual events in which a crew of fisherman aid in the smuggling of stowaways en route to South Korea. Poor weather befalls the ship, leading to the deaths of many of the stowaways.

A harrowing tale unravels throughout the film, with Korean water police hot on the tail of the smugglers, who were motivated by money to pursue illegal activity
