Only a day ago it was reported that singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong would defer his mandatory military duty until after the birth of his child in September.
But on May 5 the Korean media outlet Osen reported that Kim is set to begin his mandatory military duty on May 12. He will receive five weeks of training for new recruits in the city of Goyang before getting his placement orders. His expected date of discharge from military duty is Feb. 11, 2017.

For the first time ever in Singapore, a Korean drama OST themed concert was held here on April 22 at The Star Performing Arts Center. Baek Ji Young and K.Will who headlined the one-night only show was joined by Gilgu Bonggu (GB9) and Yoo Sung Eun. Together, they treated ardent K-drama fans to symbolic songs from the last decade to the latest popular OST songs of today.
I got goosebumps right from the beginning when GB9 gave their rendition of “Bogoshipda” (I’m Missing You). “Stairway to Heaven” was the very first drama that got me started on Korean dramas and I was so smitten with Kwon Sang Woo back then! The next song was “Snow Flower” from “I’m Sorry, I Love You,” starring So Ji Sub and Im Soo Jung, followed by “I Believe” from “My Sassy Girl” which made everyone take notice of Jun Ji Hyun and Cha Tae Hyun. I bet you still remember Gyun Woo being humiliated by wearing Jun Ji Hyun’s high heels! Right?!

EXO’s “Call Me Baby” shows no sign of slowing down and tops our chart for the third straight week. This song picked up another three music show wins last week in “Music Core,” “Music Bank,” and “Show Champion.” So far, “Call Me Baby” has racked up an amazing 18 music show wins and still counting. Congratulations again to EXO!
There are five new songs in the top 10 this week, including the No. 2 song. Moving up 10 spots from No. 12 is EXID’s new song “Ah Yeah.” EXID became a household name with their previous hit “Up And Down.” Riding on their high popularity, EXID released their second mini-album “Ah Yeah.” The title track of the same name is a hip-hop style funky dance song. The lyrics are about a woman’s interesting response to a man who doesn’t make the first move. “Ah Yeah” won on “Inkigayo” last week, preventing “Call Me Baby” from doing a sweep. It will definitely be a serious contender for the top spot next week.
