Monday Kpop Update | Jellyfish Entertainment Statement on Leo and Ravi + BIGBANG Guerrilla Concert Cancelled, YG Statement + Jessica SBS Appearance Cancelled, SBS Statement

So this post is going to kinda be a kpop music update post. I had a post with way more information but of course WordPress automatically saves every few seconds and when the entire post got deleted, I lost everything soooooooooooooooooooooooo… let’s just get straight into the news.

No videos today but check back Wednesday!


With all the new music announcements and comeback news for the summer, the most exciting part is the concerts! Fans of VIXX were super excited, as they have been on tour this whole time… new music and concerts, VIXX is on a roll! But then in Mexico it was reported that Ravi collapsed and Leo was missing from the finale. Despite the reassurance from N that both parties were doing ok, fans were still worried.

Now today, Jellyfish Entertainment has issued a statement.

“The venue location’s high altitude and the heat of the performance hall caused [Ravi and Leo] to be dizzy and they could no longer continue [performing] on stage. Leo and Ravi received emergency medical treatment from the team that were standing by at the venue and are in the process of recuperating.”

I’m sure the travelling hasn’t been much help either in terms of getting rest and staying healthy. However, it is good to know that they’re doing fine!


In other concert news, YG announced that BIGBANG’s guerrilla concert was not going to happen like expected. It was said about a week ago that BIGBANG would be performing a surprise pop-up concert. And now today YG said, in true YG fashion, “the show is cancelled”. But they later released a statement saying that they are working on something better.

“We want to let everyone know that we’re in the process of developing ideas so that fans can safely enjoy [Big Bang’s] ten-year anniversary.”

I guess legions of screaming fans potentially causing a stampede in the middle of the street didn’t seem all that appealing in hindsight.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what they come up with!


And finally, Jessica has been sparking waves, good and bad lately. After releasing her first solo album since leaving SM Entertainment, fans were ready for her to begin music promotions. It was later reported that she wouldn’t be doing too much of that. After all, she is running a fashion line simultaneously with making music.

But then it was announced that even more of her appearances were either going to be cut short, or not happening. Like her now cancelled appearance on SBS’s Lee Kuk Ju’s Young Street.

“Jessica’s reps have said, “[Her appearance] was decided upon last Wednesday, and then her scheduled appearance was cancelled on the weekend. We haven’t heard the exact reason for the cancellation. She is very disappointed because she had been preparing to perform live…According to SBS, the radio show had first secured Jo Moon Geun Band as a guest on the show for the episode, and then invited Jessica… SBS states, “After some internal discussion, we decided to invite her to appear on her own next time instead, and asked Jessica’s representatives for their understanding.”

Looks like a serious misunderstanding there. Even though this isn’t the first time they seem to have had a misunderstanding with Jessica’s team, i.e., Inkigayo name removal incident, they are doing their best to make amends.

However, she will be appearing on another show, Park So Hyun’s Love Game May 28th.

 

Wednesday Music Update | Minzy Breaks Silence – Releases Statement + Inkigayo Release Statement Amidst I.O.I Exclusion Rumors + Jessica’s New Solo Debut “With Love, J” + New Music Videos

The music world this week has been extremely busy. With new releases and comeback news, I’m surprised the world has not tilted yet.

Dal Shabet has been preparing fans for Subin’s new single, “Flower”. She’s released two more teaser photos before the release at Noon on May 12th KST.

Another recently announced solo debut artist, INFINITE’s Woohyun seems to have proven he truly has strong staying power in this industry. “Write…” went on pre-sale on May 9th and the 50,000 copies completely sold out before the official release on May 10th! Woolim went into overdrive trying to produce more albums overnight only to have to inform fans that production might take a little longer than expected. DEAN is also taking the world by storm by announcing his New York concert debut in June. After taking SXSW by storm back in March, he’s ready to return to the States for a showcase on the West Coast. Tickets are on sale starting at $45 on May 13th at Eventbrite!

And looks like we’ll be seeing Rapper Microdot in the near future! After seeing his performance on Show Me The Money 4, Culture Think has officially signed him to there label. They were thoroughly impressed with his performance and stage presence and are convinced he’ll be the perfect fit for their label. Sechs Kies also has officially signed with a label and they’ve signed with YG Entertainment. All the members, except Go Ji Young, have officially reunited to release new music for the fans. This comes right after their surprise reunion on Infinity Challenge.


But speaking of YG… 

After announcing to the world that Minzy had chosen not to re-sign with the label and ultimately parting ways to 2NE1, rumors began sprouting out about the labels she would sign to or even if she would ever sign to a new label again. All the speculations about why she left and whether she was ok began creeping into the atmosphere and still not one word from Minzy herself.

She finally broke her silence by releasing a statement in the form of a letter to her fans through instagram. She writes:

Hello, this is Minzy. It is with a sincere heart that I write to you all. First, I would like to apologize to all those who expressed shock at the news of my departure. It is after careful consideration and much deliberation that I have decided to pursue a new journey as an artist named Minzy Kong. Ever since debuting with 2NE1 at the young age of 16, I have been grateful for the wonderful memories I shared with incredible fans worldwide. These experiences were undeniably precious and I take none of them for granted. Thank you all for helping me grow as an artist. I promise to work even harder to return before you all with an improved and more honest version of myself. Through a renewed vision and hard work, I hope to reciprocate the love, dedication, and support that you have shown me. Thank you to all the fans, family, and friends who have shown me their love and concern. I promise to return soon. love, Minzy

And though I’m sure fans will surely miss her when 2NE1 re-emerges as a trio now, it’s for the best. Let’s keep supporting them all as they go through this transition.


Inkigayo is doing damage control as rumors spiral that they deliberately excluded I.O.I from early voting. The voting list was released on May 22nd and listed songs from Sech Kies, Busker Busker, and even Crush’s new song “woo ah”. But I.O.I, who released “Dream Girl” on the same day as Crush’s single, was not on the list which prompted many fans to assume that the action was deliberate.

I.O.I has been unable to appear on any public broadcasting music show which means they haven’t been doing much promoting so nobody expected the outright exclusion. Today Inkigayo responded saying simply, “it’s nothing personal, they’re just too new”.

“The announcement of totals on the online audience board is last year’s. Every week, the No. 1 place is decided through the system. The system totals up various weights using music chart rankings as reference…. I.O.I’s song has not been released long enough to gather data. Early voting is only available for songs that were within the Top 60 in the past week.”

In spite of all of that, I.O.I still may be able to appear on Inkigayo in the future.

I guess that’s the silver lining in all of this… 


To end on a happy note!

Check out Jessica’s newest teaser for her brand new solo debut of her album, “With Love, J”.  The official release date is May 17th at midnight!


And now for some new music…
