By in News posted Oct August 6th, 2014 No comments

On August 5, a press conference took place at SBS’s Ilsan center for the company’s weekend drama “Glorious Day.”

Boy group VIXX member Hongbin, who had no experience in acting before appearing in the series, displayed a thankful attitude towards more experienced cast members. “I’ve learned a lot by working alongside my awesome seniors,” he said. In particular, he pointed to Kim Hyun Gyu as his on-set teacher. “I asked him a lot of questions, and he’s helped me so much,” he said.

On his part, Kim Hyun Gyu praised Hongbin and displayed a humble attitude. “It’s better to ask questions than to just be taught,” he said, and “(Even though I am more experienced) I also have a lot left to learn.”

Hongbin also discussed how his group mates reacted to his acting

Chad Future “Rock the World ft. VIXX Ravi” On-Set Exclusive

By in News posted Oct May 23rd, 2014 No comments

I met with Chad Future a few months ago on the set of “Rock the World” at around 9:30 p.m. I stumbled onto the set holding two bottles of champagne and a vanilla cake with “You did it!” scrawled amateurishly in chocolate along its bottom edge. Future had emailed me a few days ago with their schedule; assuming they were on track, they had been on set since at least 9 a.m. with no intention of stopping until the shoot was over. Smaller artists and companies don’t have the same luxuries the Big Three can afford: multi-day movie shoots, extravagant locations, actual pyrotechnics. I figured the cake and champagne would provide some consolation from a grueling work day, what with the glamour and lifestyle of these big-headed entertainment types. Much to my surprise, I found out less than 15 minutes after arriving that Future is: (1) hardly a big-headed entertainment type, (2) does not treat his work as Work, and (3) doesn’t drink

VIXX fans speak out against Jellyfish Entertainment to demand better treatment and communication + organize DVD boycott

By in News posted Oct February 4th, 2014 No comments

A significant portion of VIXX"s fans have come together to express their frustration and anger at the boys" management agency, Jellyfish Entertainment, even starting a petition and organizing a boycott of the group"s upcoming DVD.


It seems the latest event that triggered the fans to resort to such actions came from an article piece that a reporter previously wrote, discussing his treatment by the employees of Jellyfish Entertainment at a photo and interview session of VIXX. The reporter had detailed his or her account of the rudeness of the employees. Becoming aware of the post, fans seem to have become concerned that the rudeness of the employees not only affects fans, but can reflect badly on the boys of VIXX themselves. With this final straw, they set out to make themselves heard.


The fans state, "VIXX"s agency Jellyfish ask for unnecessary personal information, fan managers speak abusively towards fans, show poor hosting of the group"s showcase and fan club inauguration, and neglect the fan cafe and do not communicate with fans

Best Pepero Kisses for Pepero Day!

By in News posted Oct November 11th, 2014 No comments

November 11 marks Pepero Day, a South Korean holiday! As this particular date looks like a line of Pepero sticks, or cookie sticks, (11/11) Koreans like to take this opportunity to show their friends and loved one affection by exchanging these sweet, thin snacks.


K-Pop fans may know of Peperos not only as a delicious treat, but as the enabler of some awesome eye candy, especially when idols utilize them for a Pepero kiss! The Pepero kiss game is where two people need to eat a Pepero together, "Lady and the Tramp" style, to make the shortest possible leftover in the middle. Of course, they can always choose to leave nothing in the middle and go for that kiss.





Check out these adorable, fangirl-worthy clips of some of our favorite idols going in for a Pepero kiss!

Boyfriend Starts Anew With “White Out”

Boyfriend Starts Anew With “White Out” Written by Nick On November 6, 2014

Starship Entertainment has surprised us with their latest MV, Boyfriend’s “White Out”. If “White Out” means that they’ve whited out their past image and built a brand new one, then Boyfriend is doing it right.

Seriously, this MV is unlike anything we’ve seen before from Boyfriend. Their debut days were filled to the brim with aegyo and brightly colored skinny jeans, though in recent Korean debuts they have been experimenting with alternating between cute and dark concepts a la VIXX in what seems to be a common strategy these days.

But this MV is neither a cute pop song like “Don’t Touch My Girl”, nor is it a fierce track like their latest mini-album’s title song “Witch”. No, this time Starship has taken Boyfriend on a more mature and refined route, showcasing the group’s vocal prowess in the form of a classic K-Pop ballad

Introducing Chad Future + first episode of ‘I AM CHAD FUTURE’ released

By in News posted Oct April 10th, 2014 No comments

Many of you may be wondering just exactly who Chad Future is, and some of you may already know. Chad Future (birth name David Lehre) is an American singer, producer, and entertainer completely inspired by Korean pop music!


Chad was met with a very unique opportunity in 2011, hosting the American Music Awards live pre-show alongside Dick Clark Productions. After doing so for two successful years in a row, and meeting a variety of top musicians from all around the world, Chad knew exactly what he was destined for.


His one main goal is simple: to bridge the gap between K-Pop and American music, and to become a successful American born K-Pop artist, promoting in America, Korea, and all around the world. Chad has already garnered much support from artists very well known, and has already collaborated with VIXX"s Ravi, and NU"EST"s Aron (song and music videos to be released later in April, stay tuned!)


To kick things off in the right direction, Chad"s brand new special titled "I AM CHAD FUTURE" has premiered on Mnet America

Once again, the new No. 1 song this week is from outside of the top 10 last week. Ailee scores her third No. 1 song on our chart with her latest hit “Singing Got Better,” up from No. 18 last week. Written by her mentor Wheesung, this is a song about a woman who focus herself on singing after a breakup to lessen her heartache, and eventually her singing skills got better. Despite only winning a minor TV music show in MBC’s Show Champion, “Singing Got Better” was the most consistent song amongst all our sources. It just edges out Girl’s Day’s “Something” by three points to win this week. Congratulations to Ailee.

Both the No. 2 and No. 3 songs are titled “Something.” Girl’s Day’s song is at No. 2 as mentioned

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – January Week 3

By in News posted Oct January 19th, 2014 No comments

There are a lot of changes in the top 10 this week. Both the top two songs were from outside of the top 10 last week.

MC The Max took home the top spot with “Wind That Blows,” rising from No. 22 last week. Back in the mid-2000s, MC The Max was a regular in the top 10 with many chart-topping hits. With their trademark emotional rock ballad tailor-made for winter, I often referred to MC The Max as “the winter ballad group of K-Pop.” Then due to members serving their mandatory military duties, MC The Max went into an extended hiatus. Now with the full lineup of Jun Min Hyuk, ISU, and J. Yoon back together, MC The Max released their seventh album “Unveiling” recently, their first full length album in more than five years. Title track “Wind That Blows” is a vintage MC The Max song featuring ISU’s intense vocals

SHINee"s been a busy, busy group this year, knocking out comeback after comeback with very little time for breaks in between- so much so that it seems like "Dream Girl", their first video of 2013, came out much earlier than it actually did.

For the first time in eight weeks, a song repeats as No. 1 on our chart. Hyorin’s “One Way Love” remains on top this week to claim the last No. 1 spot of this year. She edged out EXO’s new Christmas song “Miracles In December” by 17 points. The two songs were about even on all our sources, with each winning two music shows. The main difference was on KBS Music Bank where “One Way Love” was No. 1 and “Miracles In December” was No. 9. That gap enables Hyorin to continue to top our chart and becomes the first two week champion since IU’s “The Red Shoes” on November Week 1. Congratulations.

There are four new songs on the top 10 this week, leading by the brand new entry of “Miracles In December” at No. 2 as mentioned. EXO is enjoying a huge breakthrough year on their sophomore campaign, having a mega hit “Growl
