“Infinity Challenge’s” members held a successful music festival in front of a crowd of 35,000.
On October 17, MBC’s “Infinity Challenge’s” music festival opened at the city of Paju’s Peaceful World Park in Im Jin Gak. Despite the production staffs’ efforts to maintain the secrecy of the location, the music festival’s location was leaked to the public causing 35,000 people to attend the music concert. The relaxed, but enthusiastic atmosphere and the crowd sitting around the grass made the music festival like any other rock festival. The performances continued through the energetic mood of the festival.
On this night, the teams “Double Play” (Jung Joon Ha and Kim C), “Hyung Yong Don Jyong” (Jung Hyung Don and G-Dragon), “How Do Yoo Two” (Yoo Jae Suk and Yoo Hee Yeol), “Leech” (Park Myung Soo and Primary), “Rose Jaw” (Noh Hong Chul and Rose Inn), “Seventy Fingers,” (Haha and Jang Gi Ha and The Faces), and “GAB” (Gil and BoA) revealed eccentric performances of the songs they have worked on.
The first stage was Jung Joon Ha’s and Kim C’s team, “Double Play.” Their collaborative song, “Going to Disappear,” featured Rapper Beenzino.
Jung Hyung Don’s and G-Dragon’s “Hyung Yong Don Jyong” exhibited a stage filled with cheerful rhythm and a flashy performance through their song, “Going to Try.” The stage lifted up the atmosphere even more, and hip hop artist Def Con’s special appearance brought about laughter amongst the crowd.
Throwing away a dance performance, Yoo Jae Suk and “Emotional Pervert” Yoo Hee Yeol changed the mood through their R&B performance. Their performance and style reminded many people of the 90’s group, Solid.
Singer BoA decided to set a small goal for herself- this time to show that she can, in fact, take good selfies! Although, we’re not exactly sure who would tell the beautiful starlet otherwise!
On October 24, BoA updated her Instagram with a new photo and the caption, “This is BoA, who has been teased for being unable to take a proper selfie. I’ll be making a better effort from now on.”
As always, BoA stuns with her beautiful facial features. Fans were quick to reassure her, “Wow, I don’t see any sign of wrinkles, not even up-close!” and “You really are stunning!”
In related news, BoA has been participating on “Infinity Challenge” to help Gil prepare for the “Infinity Challenge Song Festival.”
F.cuz’s former member LeeU, now known as Lumin, joins the idol group M.Pire.
Previously known to fans as LeeU of F.cuz, Lumin (real name Lee Seung Hyun) prepares to make a comeback through group M.Pire. Benjamin Entertainment commented, “Lumin, F.cuz’s former member and popular for being Seol Woon Do’s son, has joined M.Pire as the seventh member.”
Lumin debuted in 2010 with the stage name LeeU through the group F.cuz, and up until recently was known as LeeU until changing his name to Lumin while focusing on his solo promotions. Being the son of famous trot singer Seol Woon Do, Lumin previously expressed much desire to create an identity in the music industry apart from his father. Thus, in the music field, the singer experienced working with other artists such as with JYJ’s Kim Jaejoong, co-producing the song “Kiss B,” as well as producing former U-KISS member Kibum’s Japanese single album.
Epik High (made up of Mithra Jin, Tablo, Tukutz) released a new song “420” shortly after releasing their 10thanniversary video.
On October 23, Epik High released their new song “420” on SoundCloud (link here, WARNING: explicit lyrics), for free. Tablo introduces the song, “Compared to receiving presents from the fans who have been with us for 10 years, we felt it was more Epik High-like to give a gift instead. We gathered all our close hyungs, friends and dongsaengs to make this lightning song.”
The new song was completed at 4:20 AM, thus giving it the title “420.” Top rappers, such as DoubleK, Yankie, Dok2, Sean2Slow, TopBob, MYK, and Dumbfoundead, came together in honor of Epik High’s 10th anniversary. The significance of the song was made greater by the fact that these were artists who had previously featured in Epik High’s songs over the last 10 years.
At midnight on October 23, the day of their 10th anniversary, Epik High released a short video on their blog. The video was set in a tranquil café, managing to create a warm feeling with the use of charming props, and it showed the three members absorbed in making their music without restrictions. The background music towards the tail end of the video aroused the curiosity of fans, who presumed that it must be a new song.
