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

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

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. No

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

Label:
SM Entertainment
Release Date: February 19th, 2013




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. The video features all five guys navigating a strange, topsy-turvy dream world while chasing a faceless girl in a painting through rooms where time and gravity have no meaning

Moving up seven spots to a distant second is veteran R&B quartet Brown Eyed Soul. Their song “You” have a strong showing in GAON and Billboard Korea, and also in the top five in TV Network rankings.

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

Sistar’s Hyorin grabs all the headlines on this week’s chart as both of her title songs “One Way Love” and “Lonely” moves into the top 10, with “One Way Love” up 18 spots all the way to No. 1, just edge out last week’s top song 2NE1’s “Missing You.” Congratulations.

Known as one of the best vocalists among female idol group members, Hyorin recently released her first solo album “Love & Hate.” Before this release, Hyorin has already participated in many drama OST’s. Using the slow dance concept that works well for her sub-unit Sistar19 earlier this year, “One Way Love” is about a girl’s thought on the sadness of having a one way love and not getting loved in return. It also features the much criticized crab dance

Trouble Maker’s “Now” went from outside of the top 10 (No. 15) last week and moved up all the way to No. 1 this week. It is not a surprise considering that this song swept all music shows last week. The tiny margin of victory over Park Ji Yoon’s “Mr. Lee” is more shocking.

This is the first No. 1 song for Trouble Maker, the headline-grabbing duo made up of BEAST’s Hyun Seung and 4minutes’ HyunA. The self titled track “Trouble Maker” went to No. 2 early last year. “Now” is the title song from the duo’s second mini-album “Chemistry.” “Now” is an upbeat number composed by Shinsadong Tiger, Rado, and LE. The song holds lyrics about a dramatic situation between couples. As fans expected, “Now” features a seductive MV and dance performance

The top two songs remain the same this week as Busker Busker’s “First Love” is No. 1 for a second week in a row with another very high score. This song again is nearly unanimous atop of many rankings. Lim Chang Jung’s “About Me” remains at No. 2.

There are five new songs in the top 10 this week. The highest brand new debut is Block B’s “Very Good” at No. 3. This song is coming from Block B’s third mini-album of the same name. They previously released a slower tempo track “Be The Light” as a preview single. “Very Good” has a bright and lively melody line with fun and cheerful lyrics that is different from the group’s previous more intense tracks. It was already No. 1 on SBS Inkigayo last week and will definitely challenge for the top spot next week
