Last month, Uee successfully finished the MBC weekend drama “Golden Rainbow,” where she showed her talents not as After School’s Uee, but the actress, Uee. Recently, Uee had an interview with Daily Sports on the drama and her career with After School.

-I DON’T THINK WE’VE SEEN YOU TAKE A BREAK, GOING BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN ACTING AND PERFORMING WITH AFTER SCHOOL.

“I don’t think I’ve ever taken a proper break. After School’s next album is going to come out this year, but until then, I plan on taking some time off. Luckily, my acting and singing schedules have never overlapped. If they had, I think it would have been really hard. Seeing idols nowadays who do both album promotions and acting at the same time, it’s impressive

“Hi Singapore, hi everyone. Wow! This is really wonderful, it’s very scary. It’s scary, but it’s very exciting to be here in Singapore. Are there any Koreans here? Annyeonghaseyo! I’m composer and pianist Yiruma, it’s so nice to meet you. Thank You!”

Soompi K-Pop Dance Madness: And the Champion Is…

By in News posted Oct April 13th, 2014 No comments

And the battle is over! After a long and heated match between GOT7′s Mark and EXO’s Lay, the champion of Soompi K-Pop Dance Madness was finally crowned… and that winner is Lay. Congratulations to Lay and all EXO fans!

It was not a game without hiccups: A slew of spam votes contaminated the poll results early on, winding up in a 95-to-5 score in favor of Lay. In fact, we received so much spam that it shut down the poll, rendering everyone unable to vote. In the end, we started over from scratch, opening a 24-hour lightning round to decide the winner. Without the influx of spam, we could see a less dramatic but consistent pattern, and in the end, EXO-M’s main dancer walked away with a clean 68% of the votes.

We began this contest to see which idol might be considered by most to be the best K-Pop dancer, knowing that the definition of “best” would be somewhat subjective

Weekly K-Pop Music Chart 2014 – April Week 2

By in News posted Oct April 13th, 2014 No comments

Lim Chang Jung repeats as No. 1 for the second week in a row with “Ordinary Song.” In another wide open week last week in which different songs were winning on various music shows, “Ordinary Song” was clearly the most consistent song amongst music charts and was able to win again. Congratulations to Lim Chang Jung.

Moving up three spots to No. 2 is Orange Caramel’s “Catallena.” This song dropped to No. 5 last week and was able to rebound three spots up to second this week, just ten points below “Ordinary Song.” Historically, Orange Caramel’s songs have done well and also fared better than After School’s songs on our chart. This time is no exception. Let see if “Catallena” can move up to the top spot next week.

There are four new songs in the top 10, all by non-idol artists

Continuing the excitement over EXO‘s comeback, weekly music show SBS Inkigayo has released a comeback stage teaser during its April 13 episode.

“I’m a Man”- Yoo Jae Suk Tries for Risque and Reward

By in News posted Oct April 13th, 2014 No comments

In preparation for their Spring program reorganizations, KBS has been airing several pilot variety shows over the past couple weeks. One of those pilot shows happens to be “I’m a Man,” KBS’s attempt to field a show that takes advantage of the recent explosion in popularity of “risque” and “honest” talk shows like “Witch Hunt” and “War of Words“. The interesting twist here is that they got the “National MC,” Yoo Jae Suk, to lead the show, who, on first impressions, seems to be a rather peculiar choice for a show that’s meant to be all about being provocative and direct. Does the show offer an interesting twist to whole risque talk show genre or is KBS and Yoo Jae Suk just a bit too conservative and modest to do the concept justice?

As part of the reorganizations, each broadcasters fields various pilot shows to gauge viewer interest
