SM Entertainment is going through a self-inflicted period of transition, having to reshuffle some of their groups after members’ departures. First, it was Exo who recently came back after losing two members. The next challenge for the company was the legendary SNSD. Without one of their most prominent members, Jessica, all eyes were turned expectantly to the group to see how they would fare as 8 members.
On the April 20th episode of SBS" "Healing Camp", guest Kim Gu Ra talked about how he doesn"t go out drinking after work, but comes home as soon as work ends. Part of that reason is to listen to his son Donghyun (MC Gree) practice his rapping.
Kim Gu Ra talked more about his son by saying, "Donghyun released a song, and his photo was released on a portal site. There were so many hate comments on it, so I told him to not look at them."
Even so, Kim Gu Ra, who"s suffered through a lot of criticism and malicious comments as well, said, "I told him it"s okay if he has hate comments like that. Not too long ago, Simon D met Donghyun, and he said, "I"m meeting him because he"s your son. I"ll tell him good things." So that"s why it"s okay to receive insults. I told him to take in those hate comments."

tvN"s "Let"s Eat 2" actress Seo Hyun Jin impressed with her sweet and soothing vocals in the third OST for her drama, "Up & Down", not to be confused with EXID"s hip-swaying track.
As Seo Hyun Jin was the former lead vocalist of the girl group M.I.L.K, it doesn"t come as too much of a surprise that she can sing such a song with ease and perfection. The track drips with sugary sweetness, a perfect song to express the heart-fluttering feelings of having a crush.
Song Ji Hyo is proving just how popular she is overseas as the Taiwanese music video she is featured for Kenji Wu"s track "You Are So Cute" is currently #1 on YinYueTai"s MV chart!
The talented actress and singer met while filming for the Chinese film "708090" and collaborated again for this song. The voices of Kenji Wu and Song Ji Hyo harmonize perfectly, and the two look adorable in the playful and colorful music video.
Though most of the song is in Mandarin, the chorus is sung in Korean! The MV is receiving a hot response as it"s the top MV on the MV chart in Hong Kong and Taiwan on popular MV sharing site YinYueTai.
Positive energy has defined the music of local indie band Daybreak since their debut in 2007 with "Urban Life Style".Throughout their almost 10-year career, the four-member band has generated a number of hit songs like "Up & Down" and "Good", all of which contain merry melodies and carefree lyrics.
These characteristics have formed the basis for their signature style, leading them to be a frequent staple on a number of variety shows - tvN"s travel reality show "Grandpas Over Flowers" being the most representative.But Daybreak has taken a different path more recently, and attempted for the first time a ballad on their latest mini album, "Beautiful People", which dropped April 10. The sentimental record is meant to console the fatigue of everyday life and acknowledges the value of the individual in society. "Like a Magic" reminisces about first love in a markedly different approach compared with the band"s previously high-spirited tone. The journey has been a sort of turning point for Daybreak in the opening of Act II, allowing them a respite from their usual style that helped originally catapult them to fame.In a recent interview with Ilgan Sports, an affiliate of the Korea JoongAng Daily, the band"s members - Lee Won-seok, Jung Yoo-jong, Kim Sun-il and Kim Jang-won - elaborated on their change of course in their latest album. Q. What is the difference between your previous albums and "Beautiful People"?A. The biggest change would be that we didn"t arrange the songs by ourselves, but delegated that job to Keiichi Tomita, a renowned Japanese artist whom we respect a lot. It"s also our first time performing ballads. What was working with Keiichi like?First we requested [to work with him] via email, and Keiichi - after listening to our music - replied with tentatively arranged versions of our songs. We were already well-aware of his style, so the process afterward went smoothly. Of course, when we were recording, we were very nervous because we were singing in front of a person we have admired for so long.What is the significance of including a third party on your latest album?It has been 10 years since our group was organized. We released three full-length albums, two mini albums and singles, too. We think that music should constantly change and evolve in accordance with the trends and demand. And if there is another person who can bring diversity when it comes to that change and evolution, we thought it would be better to include that person. What is the message in the lead track, "Beautiful People"?We wanted this song to be a song for and about everyone. So when we wrote the lyrics, all the members got together and wrote them down. We jotted down things related to our daily lives. When we get along in our lives, there are times when the existence of ourselves feels too small and valueless. We wanted to say that even in those situations, you are beautiful enough, so let"s not get weak but carry on. It"s not about, "You can do better", but about, "It"s OK as it is".How is Daybreak getting along?It"s been four years since we started appearing on TV and holding concerts. We appreciate the fact that we can draw in more people through our music. Are you aware that your music is frequently used in TV commercials and variety shows?We think screenwriters are fond of our music. On that note, we want to show our appreciation to producer Na Young-seok [of "Grandpas Over Flowers"] (laugh). BY UM DONG-JIN [firstname.lastname@example.org]

A petition started to oppose Kwanghee joining “Infinity Challenge” due to his connection with Yewon & Star Empire
There is currently an online petition collecting signatures opposing ZE:A"s Kwanghee becoming the sixth man for "Infinity Challenge". The reason is because he, as a member of ZE:A, is under Star Empire Entertainment, the same company as Yewon.
The petition on Daum Kakao with the title, "We oppose Kwanghee, who is in the same company as Yewon, becoming the sixth man," began on April 18.
The description for the petition reads, "She has fooled the entire country and has still not personally apologized and arrogantly appears on TV by selling her fake laugh, acting as if nothing happened. Isn"t it obvious what kind of character Kwanghee has, being under the same company who lets her do such a thing? Please gather your force. We strongly oppose Kwanghee becoming the sixth man of "Infinity Challenge"".
