2PM"s Chansung has become the latest k-celeb to sign on for a Chinese production. He will appear in the musical film titled "I Wanna Hold Your Hand." It is a title inspired a Beatles song.

This coming of age film is actually a collaborative effort between Korea"s JYP Entertainment and the Chinese entertainment company East Entertainment Group.

According to a JYP representative, Hwang Chansung will appear as G.O., the youngest member of Stars, a once popular idol group.

The JYP representative said that the singer and actor plays a supporting role to fellow JYPE actor Wei Da Xun, who has been cast as the film"s lead

By in News posted Oct June 5th, 2014 No comments

YouTube singer Impaofsweden, like her name reveals, hails from Sweden. She first discovered BIGBANG’s G-Dragon in 2010, which was a great intro to the world of K-Pop. She discovered her love for singing later than the usual child who dreams of becoming a singer as a teen. Despite her “slow” start, it quickly became her biggest interest. Impaofsweden started uploading her first cover on YouTube in December 2011, which was labelmate 2NE1’s “Hate You.”

5 Non-Idol Rappers with Memorable Rapping Styles

By in News posted Oct May 25th, 2014 No comments

As hip hop becomes more of an "accepted" and a noticeably popular genre in the Korean music industry, up and coming rappers have beensprouting up here and there for their shot at the "hip-hop king" title (Tiger JK still holds that venerableposition). Some are successful—those are the ones with talent—while others createbuzz but die out like a flame that is untended to (what happened to you, TakeOne?). It is still extremelydifficult to make it as a rapper in the Korean hip hop scene mostly due to lackof resources (proper recording equipment, hip hop labels that are few and farbetween) and the Korean population"s general disregard and indifference towardsrappers. Bluntly put, many people are going to think you are delusional and have no future if youtell them you aspire to make it as a rapper.


Despite all the tribulations however, many rappers gainedrecognition through perseverance and of course, an unprecedented rapping style
