miss A’s Suzy and Min channel Michael Jackson for a recent performance. On January 2, miss A tweeted a photo of the girls dressed up in Michael Jackson’s signature look. The special occasion was for a performance on Chinese broadcast station Hunan TV’s “Your Face Sounds Familiar.”
The program is known for having individuals and groups performing songs by well-known singers. The girls performed one of Michael Jackson’s hit songs while the whole group also performed its latest track “Hush.”
Whereas Taeyang and G-Dragon have known each other for years, another 88er has joined their circle! ZE:A member Kwanghee recently shared a photo of himself sandwiched between YG artists G-Dragon and Taeyang on his official Twitter page. He simply captioned it, “88 baby” to showcase their budding friendship.
As for the “88” part of the caption, it directly refers to the fact that Taeyang, G-Dragon and Kwanghee were all born in 1988. Often those born in the same year in Korea get to immediately address each other as a “friend” and get to employ more casual language. According to some descriptions of the photo, G-Dragon shoots Kwanghee a “motherly smile.” Netizens commented, “Were these three always close?” and “They look great together, but something feels slightly awkward.”
AOA is ready to make music once again! The group has just announced on their official Facebook page that they will be making a comeback with a single album this month titled “Miniskirt.” To excite fans for their comeback, AOA has released the jacket cover for the single where the girls are showing off their figures in simple black dresses and high heels.
FNC Entertainment has also announced through their website that there will teasers for a dance version and a drama version of the music video.
On January 4, girl group 2NE1’s leader CL posted on her Instagram an old picture of herself when she was just a kid and one of her current self. In the old picture, she is sitting side by side with her father on a bench. She seems to be posing like her father, arms crossed, and smiling. In the current picture, she is standing up against a white wall, but is again crossing her arms with a chic facial expression.
Netizens who saw the picture commented, “She was different from others ever since she was young,” “Even when she was a kid, she sure had charisma,” “Her pose is great,” “Let’s see some other past pictures,” and “So cute.” After releasing 2NE1’s comeback single “Missing You” in November of last year and topping off all musical charts, the girls seem to be taking a break whilst preparing for their world tour that starts in March.
Jung Dong Ha will be leaving rock band Boohwal. Jung Dong Ha’s exclusive contract with Boohwal Entertainment is up, and he has decided not to renew his contract and will pursue new activities as a solo artist and musical work. He joined Boohwal in 2005, becoming the band’s longest running vocalist. Jung Dong Ha’s last performance with the group was at Boohwal’s Christmas concert on December 25. It looks like an amicable parting for him, as Boohwal leader Kim Tae Won has said that he will respect Jung Dong Ha’s wishes and has given him nothing but warm encouragement, after working together for more than nine years.
Kim Tae Won had hinted on his DC Inside Gallery on a January 1 post about Jung Dong Ha’s impending departure. The post had talked about a new beginning, leaving fans wondering if he was talking about Jung Dong Ha leaving the band.
Boohwal has had a total of nine vocalists to date: Kim Jong Seo, Lee Seung Chul, Kim Jae Ki, Kim Jae Hee, Park Wan Gyu, Kim Ki Yeon, Lee Sung Wook, Jung Dan and Jung Dong Ha.
Jung Dong Ha has been with the band since 2005, and has participated on albums beginning with 2005’s 10th album “Lyricism,” right up to their 13th album, “Purple Wave,” in 2013. He was the first vocalist to recontract with Boohwal.
