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.

It’s been over 10 years since Jeff Lynne’s ELO released an album. In the intervening decade they have been “critically rehabilitated from guilty pleasure to national treasure”, becoming one of the most sampled acts in hip-hop history – 44 and counting, from Young Jeezy to Brain Dead according to this blog. In 2014, they put on a triumphant reunion show in Hyde Park, London.
It makes sense then, that after the revival comes a revived interest in music-making, and Lynne soon returned to the studio to make the album Alone in the Universe, released on 13 November.

“I felt that again when we played Hyde Park. I remember thinking how all these years later, the songs somehow mean even more to people, and to me, too,” says Lynne.

“I could hear the audience singing so loudly that I almost couldn’t hear myself. It was a beautiful thing, and it was the best concert I’ve ever been in – literally, my favourite show ever. That definitely makes me feel a little bit less alone in this universe.”

Before its release, we have the premiere of When the Night Comes. The track started life as a demo recorded on cassette, featuring a few basic chords, before it was developed into the melancholy cosmic groove it is today.

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.

Gary Kang’s agency, Leessang Company, issued a strongly worded statement denying that the singer and reality show star appears in a currently circulating sex tape.

Leessang Company not only denies that Gary Kang (Kang Hee Gun) is in the tape being circulated but says they will take decisive legal action against anyone spreading rumors that he is.

The agency told the Korean media outlet Naver TV that when they first heard the rumors, they did not even think they were worth responding to. But as the rumors spread and more people began to discuss them, the agency decided that it was time to release a statement and take action.

On August 31, the agency released an official statement denying that Gary Kang is the person in the sex tape. The agency pointed out that the person in the sex tape has a tattoo on his left arm while Gary Kang’s is on his right arm. The tattoos are similar but not exactly the same.

The agency said that the man who acknowledges being in the sex tape contacted them and expressed his concern about any problems his tape might have caused the popular celebrity.

Leessang Company will request a formal police investigation to discover who first spread the tape and the rumor. They will also pursue charges against anyone who continues to spread it. The agency asked the public to help stop the spread of such rumors because they hurt Kang and the actual people in the video.

The agency’s statement comes only days after an arrest warrant was issued against the man allegedly spreading false rumors about the existence of a sex tape that supposedly featured actress Lee Si Young. Her agency not only denied that she was in such a tape but is planning to sue the person who spread it. If convicted the person could spend years in jail and have to pay a $50,000 fine.

Gary Kang is the rapper and lyricist of the hip-hop duo Leessang. He has had several cameo appearances on dramas, including “Emergency Couple” and “The Girl Who Sees Smells.” But he is also well known because of his appearances on variety shows. He has been a regular guest on “Running Man” since 2010. Together with actress Song Ji Hyo, they are known as the Monday Couple because of their affectionate onscreen relationship/

Compton, the new album from hip-hop mogul and Apple employee Dr. Dre, was streamed 25 million times in its first week on Apple Music. In addition to the streams, Apple says the album also sold half a million downloads through iTunes — a solid performance that was not quite enough to push it to number one in the US charts. Apple executives reported the figures in a statement to The New York Times, but the publication did not specify whether the figure was made up from complete listens to the whole album, or includes people who listened to individual songs.

“Drake got 48 million streams in a week”

The album, which came at the same time as, and loosely ties into NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, was an all-Apple affair. Dre announced the album on his own Beats 1 radio show, The Pharmacy, and it premiered a day early on Apple’s streaming service, before full release on iTunes on July 7th. For now at least, it remains an Apple exclusive, only available for stream on Apple Music and digitally through iTunes. Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine was positive about the results, saying that it constituted a good start for Apple Music. “We’re beginning to show what we can do in terms of communicating music to a worldwide audience and helping artists at the same time,” he told The New York Times.

But where Iovine says Apple is just getting started getting music to the world, hip-hop’s current kings are already old hands at disseminating their music to a huge and internet-literate fanbase. Even with Dre’s incomparable legacy and a heavy marketing push from Apple, Compton’s numbers still lag behind hip-hop’s current kings: Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly got 39 million streams in its first week online back in March, while If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, the surprise album released by Drake earlier this year, notched up 48 million streams. Both artists used Twitter, Instagram, and other social networks to build suspense for their newest records, and released them on multiple streaming services, securing more listeners than Compton could with its Apple-first approach.

After 17 months, YG Entertainment offered a glimpse of hope to many fans of the K-pop girl group 2NE1.

Since the release of the album “CRUSH” in February 2014, 2NE1, once major players in the K-pop game, have been absent from the scene as a whole. Between members’ solo activities and personal lives, the girl group has been inactive in 2015, but a Korean media outlet received good news from YG Entertainment, 2NE1’s management agency.

According to YG Entertainment, 2NE1 is positively considering releasing a new song “by next year at [the] latest.”

The report, originally published by Korea’s Star News, was shared on YG Entertainment’s official blog, YG Life.

The Star News article focused on 2NE1’s absence from the onslaught of summer comebacks from Korean girl groups, including Girls’ Generation and Wonder Girls. The group’s members are focusing on their solo careers, particularly leader CL’s preparations for a debut into the American music market and Dara’s acting career, and YG Entertainment had previously not discussed any solid comeback plans following the hiatus of one group member.

In 2014, Park Bom took a break from the spotlight after reports of a previous legal battle regarding her having family members send her drugs from the United States that are illegal in South Korea. In February, the three other members of 2NE1 were featured in the Adidas Superstar Photo Exhibition in New York but Park’s absence was noted.

Star News described 2NE1 as “still very much missed by fans” who “are longing for their return.”
