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

Eric Nam Breaks Out of the Mold with ′Ooh Ooh′

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

After 15 months since his last single, Eric Nam is finally back - not that it ever seemed like he was really away.

Appearing on television every week, interviewing top international stars, and greeting overseas fans through various programs, Eric Nam has been working hard, and working a lot - but not quite in the capacity that he wanted.

“I think last year was a very difficult and trying year for me personally and professionally, on many levels,” said Eric Nam, in an interview with Mwave’s enewsWorld. “And part of that came from the fact that I came and signed as a singer and .. I wasn’t singing. To be releasing one song a year, and this song 15 months after that song - as a singer, it’s very depressing in a way. It’s disheartening.”

But thankfully, Eric Nam’s latest single, Ooh Oohhas already been garnering a positive response, despite, or perhaps, because of, the different direction he’s gone since releasing his soft ballad, Heaven’s Door
