MUSIC SHOW: GOT7 take their first Music Show win

GOT7 took their first win on The Show this week with If You Do, beating DIA, Lovelyz, CNBLUE and SEVENTEEN. It was also a prominent show for the group to win on as the episode was held outdoors as a part of the 2015 One Asia Seoul Mega Concert.
To celebrate and thank fans the group held a live stream session on Naver’s V app.


VIDEO: Jay Park releases choreography mv for Solo

Jay Park is reminding us he knows how to move with his one shot choreography mv for Solo, featuring Hoody, with the Prepix dance crew.
The video even features waacking dancer Haejun at 1:41 (waacking is a form of dance created in the Los Angeles LGBT clubs in the 70s), rocking heels better than I ever could!

ADVERTISING: Korean Englishman features in a Guinness advert

Check out Korean Englishman Josh at the end of this new Guinness advert in South Korea!

It seems Guinness Korea have at least temporarily ditched actor Jung Woo Sung as their ambassador and have taken their ads in a new direction. Taste of Black is a campaign exclusive to the Korean advertisement of the Irish Stout.
Guinness is still a really small player in the South Korean drinks market, but this campaign aims to tackle the perception of an overly strong or challenging taste that comes from its black colour.
By using their buzzwords such as ‘smooth’ and ‘rich’ Guinness hopes to encourage drinkers to share their own experiences of the alcohol on social media with the hashtag TASTEofBLACK.

FUN: Kyuhyun praises his own album

Kyuhyun returns with second solo project Again, When Fall Comes on Thursday, and in true Kyuhyun fashion he had a little gloating to do.

He posted to twitter “Why are my new tracks so good? There is not a track to miss out. Hope you look forward to my new album.”

The album will include seven tracks including title song A Million Pieces, which compares love to the stars of the night sky.
At Gwanghwamun was a great success for Kyuhyun, so expectations are high for his second offering. He’ll begin his promotions on M Countdown this week.
