Monday Kpop Update | VIXX Comeback Concept + EXO’s K-FRIENDS Concert Organizers Upset Fans + Luhan Solo Concert

This post may be a bit later than usual today only because I was super late writing it. Earlier today I had decided not to do a kpop update but then I saw I haven’t really done one in a while and so here it is.


VIXX released a new teaser as they prepare for the comeback. The concept and theme has fans excited as they get ready to experience something new and seriously I can’t wait. This just looks like it’ll be better than their last one and honestly I didn’t think they could top that one but I think they just did with this teaser.


 

EXO fans are thoroughly upset with concert organizers in Shanghai. It seems that these organizers still have yet to learn their lesson from the last time! This incident seems similar to before. Fans were promised one thing and got something entirely different.

“… The organizers who hosted the concert advertised EXO’s K-FRIENDS Shanghai concert would be held on March 27, for three hours from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. (local time). All EXO members were to be present, with a total of 10 songs and other events planned for the concert… However, unlike what was advertised, EXO’s Lay was unable to attend due a schedule conflict with movie filming, and instead of 10 songs, they only performed five. The concert ended before 9 p.m. (local time), igniting a heated response from fans who attended, asking for refunds.”

And apparently, it gets worse. Not only did fans rush to buy tickets after hearing of this for the promotions, but ticket prices ended up shooting up to “4000-6000 yuan (approximately $600-$900), with front row seats reaching 10,000 yuan (approximately $1,500)”. That’s around the same amount it would cost to go see Hamilton live. (Yes, I’m a Hamilton fan… a huge one!) 

The fans were told to prepare items and gifts like full-length mirrors, clothes hangers, etc. for backstage use and then this happens. But apparently the organizers said, they were tricked too! I won’t post the whole statement they released, you can see it at soompi if you click the link.

“…We advertised the information word for word as we received it. We removed Lay from the performers list after later learning about his inability to attend. We will release more concrete details regarding refunds for tickets at a later time.”

At this moment, I don’t know what to believe. I won’t tell you what to believe but I do think it’s more to this story than they’re letting on in that statement.


In lighter news, Luhan performed live for his very first concert in Beijing solo. It’s a pretty big deal to see an idol do something like this especially after everything he’s been through. But congrats to him!

Luhan | New Music:: “That Good Good (有點兒意思)” [Video]

I’m not entirely sure this was the reaction SM expected when they blocked his first debut attempt but Luhan is back again to let everyone know he “got that good good”. (let me add I felt way too inappropriate writing that) But I kinda like how the song sounds. It’s got a nice beat to it.

Fans are already counting down to when this video will be taken down because of SM. For now, it’s up. Hopefully it stays up longer than last time! But in the meantime, if you haven’t seen it check it out below!

Luhan | Claims SM Poorly Compensated + Netizens Outraged

Luhan is going to remain in hot water for a while since Tao is sorta in good graces with netizens right now. If you didn’t hear what he did recently, Tao was supposed to have a concert in China but due to the recent horrific explosions that took the lives of many and displaced a lot of familes, Tao decided to instead hold a free concert for all the victims of the Tianjin Explosion. So the anger is no longer directed at him, for now.

Luhan on the other hand… it’s gonna be a long week.

“For the past two years, Luhan was never given proper documents for his compensation. After signing an exclusive contract with SM, Luhan was never given proper compensation documents.”

SM countered this by say that Luhan’s team keeps making accusations without evidence. If there were evidence to back up what his team is saying. They continue by saying, “If we are required to provide evidence we are ready to deliver”. 

But now, netizens have joined in the fray! They’ve taken to the internet to lecture, mock and “yell” at Luhan, reminding him that he made $540 million won in two years, that he received education and training with SM and finding it ironic that he’s complaining about money when he’s doing “so well”.

This is really gonna be a long week for Luhan and I honestly don’t know what to say except this, I think the fans and anti-fans are really tired of the drama.

SM Entertainment | Luhan and Kris will Both go to Court Against SM

So it’s official.

Previously it was reported that Kris and SM Entertainment could not come to an agreement and now they will be going to court to settle. And it seems Luhan will be joining that “party” as well. It was reported they SM and Luhan could no reach an agreement in their current legal battle out of court so now they have to go to court and appear on August 19th for a settlement.

And interestingly enough, SM decided to… fire some shots… at both Kris and Luhan in their recent statement.

“The fact that the two of them sought legal action for the same reason with the same legal representative when there were no issues can only mean one thing. They are prioritizing personal success and putting it before everyone involved including the agency and group now that they have gained fame through group activities.”

It is a bit worrisome as to why this is lasting so long. I knew it would be a long drawn out battle but I didn’t think it’d be almost a year. It’s been 10 months! I have to wonder if this is being dragged out because of SM believing that Kris and Luhan owe them money from their individual success. They could possibly say that they do due to contracts and legalities and that could be the reason they can’t come to an agreement.

Of course, that’s all just speculation and my personal opinion. 

I just hope it’s all settled soon as we can all move on!
