Calling all Canadian VIXX fans!

VIXX_1412694192_af_org

The stunning six member Korean boy group are set to make their appearance at the 2016 Toronto K-pop Con.

After its inaugural convention last year, Toronto K-pop Con is back with three days of Korean pop and culture related events. Attendees can look forward to meet and greets with famous YouTubers, dance workshops, celebrity panels, vendors selling K-pop merchandise, and so much more. Toronto K-pop Con even boasts talent and fashion competitions and a Korean style games room with prizes sponsored by the Korean skin care brand The Face Shop.

Since VIXX’s last North American performance at 2015 KCON in New York, they have released two spectacular tracks that fans are eager to see live. At the end of August, VIXX’s first sub-unit project group LR (made up of members Leo and Ravi) made their debut with the captivating and dark “Beautiful Liar.” Then, in November VIXX made their first group comeback since February with “Chained Up.”

VIXX is scheduled to be the first of four headlining acts. Anticipation is high to see who else graces the stage at Toronto K-pop Con.

Toronto K-pop Con (#TKC16) will take place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from May 20 to May 22, 2016. Tickets are on sale throught their official website.

After they released their individual ‘Basic’ image teasers yesterday, Brown Eyed Girls are continuing to build up hype for their upcoming album by revealing the full tracklist through a physics term-filled teaser image.

The album will contain 10 songs:

1. Ice Cream Time

2. Wormhole

3. Wave

4. New World

5. Obsession

6. God particle

7. Light

8. Atomic

9. Dice Game

10. Fractal

All titles of the tracks are linked to physics, with the exception of the first and fifth songs, “Ice Cream Time” and “Obsession,” respectively.

It seems like Brown Eyed Girls will take on an extremely innovative space/physics based concept for their comeback. The teaser image also included other physics-based concepts, like geometric shapes, fractals, waves, wormholes, atoms, and the mysterious equation that was on the individual teaser images.

To come and think of it, the concept is rather irony when the teasers are so complex!

Brown Eyed Girls will be releasing their album on November 5th at midnight.

JYP Entertainment’s wildly popular seven-member boy group, GOT7, is back with an angst-filled music video that’s sure to set fans’ hearts a-flutter.
After teasing fans for over a week with a string of gorgeous photographs and angsty videos, GOT7 has finally released the full version of their new music video for the lead track off their new EP, “MAD.”

The track, entitled, “If You Do,” was produced by Black Eyed Pilseung, the talented composition duo made up of Rado and Choi Kyusung responsible for such hits as 4Minute’s “Volume Up,” A Pink’s “HUSH,” Trouble Maker’s “Trouble Maker” and “Now,” and SISTAR’s “Touch My Body.”

Staying true to their word, GOT7 has stepped away from the colorful, feel-good vibe that made their last release, “Just Right,” so popular, by embracing the darker, more mature concept they promised would set “If You Do” apart from their previous work.

With a song that describes the pain of loving an apathetic girl who spends her time dwelling on the flaws of her boyfriend, GOT7 are definitely showing off different personas as the video for “If You Do” is full of angry men, destructive behavior, powerful dancing and perfect bias hair.

For those fans that have been waiting for the day GOT7 put aside the cute and cocky concepts to embrace an angsty bad-boy image, that day is here.

Maroon 5’s Adam Levine offered an apology to Korean fans after canceling a concert last minute.

On Sept. 6, Maroon 5’s Daegu concert, part of the group’s Maroon V Tour, was suddenly postponed less than two hours prior opening. The group received widespread backlash from Korean fans, who had spent time and money traveling to the southern city.

Levine recorded a video, which was then broadcasted on Korea’s TBC channel news show later in the week.

“Hey everyone, this is Adam Levine of Maroon 5,” the lead singer said. “We are so truly sorry that we couldn’t make the show in Daegu. We were so excited to see it for the first time, we’ve never been before. But we’ll be back on Thursday so hopefully it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience. We love you, we love you, we can’t wait to see you guys.”

He ended the video by blowing a kiss at fans.

Shortly after the Daegu concert was cancelled, Levine posted a picture on Instagram showing himself wearing a neck brace.

“Hey guys. sorry we had to reschedule…” he wrote on Sept. 6. “I posted this photo of sad neck brace Adam purely for your sympathy. See you Thursday! #Maroon5 #Vtour2015.”

The Daegu show was postponed until and held on Sept. 10, while the group were able to perform at their Sept. 7 show in Seoul without any issues.

Fans took to social media to express their disappointment. Many Korean fans took to Maroon 5’s official Facebook page and commented in either Korean or English about how sad they were, and the difficulties that many would face trying to attend the show on Thursday.

“My [and] my hubby came to Daegu for the concert,” wrote Hayli Cho. “We regretfully have to sell our tickets because we will work on Thursday.”

“Can anyone help?” asked Lesley Rutter. “I had tickets for last night, but I cannot attend on Thursday, it is too far.”

Fans also expressed anger at the concert being cancelled less than two hours prior to the show, and wrote about the confusion at the concert due to lack of proper communication from the concert staff and organizers.

Maroon 5 has had several issues throughout the “Maroon V Tour,” and had to also cancel shows in Liverpool, England on May 29 and Sept. 1 in Osaka, Japan.
