Lately, fans has been saying that her personality has changed and she responded back. On the radio show, Host Ilac asked about her real personality. She answered, “I have emotional ups and downs. When I’m with my friends, I’m loud and lively but calm when I’m alone. There are many people who are misunderstood. During my time with I.O.I, I was very outgoing because I was with my friends, but became calm and quiet when I started promoting solo.”

Host Ilac commented, “Isn’t it weirder if you’re loud when you’re alone?” and made everyone laughed.

Check out Chungha’s title track, “Roller Coaster” for her 2nd mini album she is currently promoting!

tvN Asia 24-hour express drama — Mother — a heartrending series that narrates the complexity of multifaceted motherhood, will premiere exclusively on tvN Asia in Singapore and Malaysia on 25 January (Thursday) at 21:45. The drama is the Korean remake of an exceptional award-winning Japanese TV drama with the same title and presents a cast of actresses Lee Bo-young (李宝英), Heo Yool (许律), Lee Hye-young (李慧英) and Ko Sung-hee (高圣熙).

Mother follows a cliff-hanging story centering on the “mother-and-daughter” relationship between an elementary school teacher and her student, an 8-year old girl who is being abused by her biological mother. It depicts an unpredictable journey of the pair experiencing pure maternal bond through a fake motherhood.

Lee Bo-young plays the leading role of an elementary school teacher Soo-jin, who undergoes drastic transformations from a chill urban professional to an affectionate substitute mother for her student. Child actress Heo Yool portrays an abused kid Hye-na, who suffers from both mental and physical assaults by her family. Hye-na’s biological mother Ja-young, played by Ko Sung-hee, is a tense figure struggling in complicated emotions toward her kid and is having a hard time confronting reality. Veteran actress Lee Hye-young, returns from a 7-year hiatus returns to play the role of Soo-jin’s charismatic mother, a top actress who raises her three kids all alone and has the strongest attachment with her eldest daughter Soo-jin.

On top of the powerful female cast, Mother is produced by renowned director Kim Cheol-kyu (previously directed Chicago Typewriter and On the Way to the Airport), and accomplished writer Jung Seo-kyoung (known for her scriptwriting of The Handmaiden and Lady Vengeance). Famous for their insights on humanity and delicate depictions of sentiment, the production team hopes that Mother will deliver heart-warming messages and thought-provoking storyline to the audience.

Mother will premiere exclusively on tvN Asia, within 24 hours of Korea’s broadcast, in Singapore and Malaysia on 25 January (Thursday) at 21:45 and air every Thursday and Friday. Catch it on TV or on-demand via Singtel TV Ch. 518 / 619, Singtel TV GO, StarHub TV Ch. 824 or StarHub GO in Singapore and on Astro Ch. 395, Astro GO, unifi tv (previously HyppTV ) Ch. 601 or unifi playtv in Malaysia with subtitles in English, Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia.

In last week’s premiere, Korean reality programme Youn’s Kitchen S2 showed how members Yoon Yeo-jung, Lee Seo-jin, Jung Yoo-mi and Park Seo-joon prepare for the restaurant’s opening. It also introduced the spectacular views and romantic ambience of Garachico on the Tenerife Island, Spain. The programme broadcasts exclusively on tvN Asia every Saturday at 21:00 (GMT+8).

In the first episode, newly joined and much loved intern Park Seo-joon fully engaged himself into the restaurant’s daily operation and offered great support to his seniors. He has also demonstrated his multi-talents from cleaning, cooking to receiving customers, while his fluent Spanish and charming appearance managed to capture the heart of female customers.Meanwhile, the first group of customers, who helped with recruiting diners, will give honest critics on the food and reveal their true identity in the upcoming episode.

 

In hopes of driving more diners, CEO Yoon Yeo-jung along with the other three members will develop a new dish: Japchae, a colorful and savory dish of stir-fried glass noodles in mixed vegetables, is created to fit diners’ palate. In addition, the ambitious director Lee Seo-jin is greatly adored by customers for his dimpled smiles and generous services. In season 2, the siblinglike sweet and hilarious interactions between assistant chef Jung Yoo-mi and intern Park Seo-joon also attract keen attention from the audience.

The second episode of Youn’s Kitchen S2, broadcasted in Korea earlier, recorded an average viewership of 14.8% and a peak of 18.2%, which not only outperformed its first season’s highest ratings, championing all variety shows ever aired on tvN in Korea, but also ranked no. 1 among all shows in Korean during the same timeslot (including pay TV, free-to-air TV and IPTV). Noteworthy, the impressive rating reminds audience of Lee Seo-jin’s pre-broadcast promise that if the show’s rating reaches 15%, the production team will film Season 3 directly. Moving forward, it seems that the promise is very likely to be fulfilled in near future!

Youn’s Kitchen S2 broadcasts exclusively on tvN Asia every Saturday at 21:00 (GMT+8). tvN is available in 10 Asia-Pacific countries, including Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Cambodia, Myanmar and Sri Lanka, with subtitles in English, Chinese, Bahasa Malaysia, Bahasa Indonesia and Thai. tvN, where fun takes off!

Wanna One 1st fan meeting in Kuala Lumpur on last Friday, Jan 19, probably left either good or bad memories for Wannables (Wanna One fans).  Living up to their nickname as monster rookies, Wanna One gathered a strong 6,000 crowd, coming from all over the world at Stadium Negara for their 1st ever fan meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

The event which was supposed to be filled with fun and excitement turned chaotic as soon as Wanna One members appeared on stage at 8pm sharp. Fans in the rock zones seemed to run towards the stage to get a closer view, accidentally causing a commotion in the rock zones. The pushing scenes were clearly seen by the other fans, guests and members of media who were seated on another level.

Not distracted by those moments, Wanna One kicked off the night with their hit songs, ‘Energetic’ and ‘Beautiful’. When it was time for the members to greet the crowd, the commotion got out of control. Some fans were spotted fainting and injured by the pushing incidents, putting their safety at risk. Shocked and confused by the situation, Wanna One members stopped the introduction by asking fans to calm down and stop pushing. “Your safety is our priority,” said the members concernly. They were finally sent to the backstage as the situation was not getting any better.

Concert staff, security and paramedics immediately rushed to the area to attend to those in need. Security tried hard to get everyone seated and moved to the back so everyone had better space to breathe. Concert staff was seen giving water and helped to cool the fans to avoid them from fainting, while paramedics lent their hands to those injured and fainted. The police also got involved and warned to cancel the concert if the fans did not co-operate. Kindly note that the police have solid right to cancel shows if it involves security threats.

It was hard to get thousands of people to co-operate, but finally everything was under control after an hour and half, with the organizer decided to resume the show with everyone seated properly in the rock zones. But it clearly dampened the mood of most fans, who were tired of the long waiting time and still shocked by the incident. But still they did not want to give up as they are not sure when they can see Wanna One as 11 members again.

Still, the show must go on. The boys got back onstage to greet the crowd properly and apologized for the inconvenience caused. Thank goodness, the fan meeting went smoothly until the end after that!

Wanna One had a few Q&A and game sessions. In the Q&A, the MC asked did Wanna One liked the weather of Malaysia, they replied due to the winter days in Korea, they really enjoyed the Malaysian warmth. Then the MC asked, did Wanna One have any unforgettable memories while they were in Malaysia for a few days, They replied with sweetest words that “This moment (which is the moment with Wannables) is their most unforgettable memory in Malaysia.” They were really appreciative and thankful for all the support from their fans!

Wannables also prepared a surprise event for Daehwi, who celebrate his birthday this month. They sang his birthday song in English and Korean. Good job Wannables! Wanna One also performed ‘Wanna Be’ and ‘Pick Me’ before sending off their last greetings.

Well, it’s not over till it’s over. The boys came back looking slick in black suits, serenading the crowd with ‘Always’, and soon after they killed the encore stage with ‘Never’ and ‘Burn It Up’.

It was unfortunate that incidents like this happened this time. The organizer had issued an apology on their Facebook soon after the show end, they considered fans’ security as their first priority, therefore the show was forced to delay, and they were also appreciative to all fans for co-operating. We hope everyone will never experience something like this in the future. Let’s enjoy our idols’ concerts safely!

Wanna One 1st Fan Meeting in Kuala Lumpur ‘Wanna Be Loved’ is organized by iMe Malaysia.

The hit song ‘Power’ from Korean super group EXO was introduced to audiences as part of a spectacular dancing performance at 5:30pm.

K-Pop boyband EXO made its debut in 2012 and has enjoyed phenomenal success both in Korea and across the region ever since. The song ‘Power’ is EXO’s newest hit; it was released in September 2017 to great success, and has topped the charts in various K-Pop markets. ‘Power’ will now stay in rotation, as the first K-Pop song to ever be included as part of The Dubai Fountain’s world-renowned repertoire.

Issam Kazim, CEO, Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DCTCM), said: “We are dedicated to bringing world-class entertainment to visitors of Dubai. We are also committed to continually innovating and are extremely excited about the addition of ‘Power’ to The Dubai Fountain’s repertoire. We hope to continue to offer visitors to Dubai a truly memorable experience through spectacular performances set to world-famous music, and we are pleased to be able to provide our Korean visitors with a unique rendition of one of their country’s most popular songs.”

The band members of EXO were present at The Dubai Fountain last night to witness the inaugural performance of ‘Power’.

Describing their feelings on seeing the show for the first time, EXO commented: “We are delighted to introduce global audiences to our song ‘Power’ at this world-famous site. It is a true honour for our song to have been chosen as the first ever K-Pop to be played by The Dubai Fountain; not only is ‘Power’ a  dynamic song, but the lyrics describe how music can make people stronger by uniting us all. This ties in with the very essence of The Dubai Fountain itself, a place where visitors from all around the world gather together in one spot to enjoy the truly spectacular fountain show.  Watching The Dubai Fountain dance to ‘Power’ was a truly magnificent experience for us. We would advise everyone to visit this amazing attraction when they are in Dubai.”

Widely recognised as one of the most impressive musical fountains of the world, artistically interwoven with music, lasers and light, The Dubai Fountain is one of the world’s ‘must-see’ attractions. It has a rich, dynamic collection of performances encompassing many musical traditions, each one being uniquely expressive in its interpretation.

With its vibrant musical and visual experience set on the 23.81-acre Burj Lake within Downtown Dubai (equivalent to that of 18 football fields), The Dubai Fountain can reach a height of 140 metres (450 ft.) and is equipped with powerful nozzles capable of shooting water higher than a 45-storey building. The beam of light shining upward from the fountain can be seen from more than 30 kilometres away. Different combinations of water-forms created by 6,000 WET Superlights and 25 colour projectors perform to selected musical pieces – chosen from a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music.

Last weekend, hundreds of Shawols (SHINee fans) traveled to Dallas, Texas for a Jonghyun Vigil hosted by Cassidy Fultz. The event took place at Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas on Saturday, January 6th.

Klyde Warren Park is a popular park known for it’s beautiful scenery of downtown, being conveniently beside the Dallas Museum of Art, and the various food trucks along the street every day. With the park being over 5.0 acres long it offers fun playgrounds for children, a dog park for your furry friends, surrounding restaurants/shops, outdoor concerts, yoga/recreational events, and more! The park is cherished by locals and tourists, and was the perfect spot to bring together Shawols for a very special event.

An estimated 300 Shawols gathered to celebrate the life of SHINee member, Kim Jonghyun. With pearl aqua being the official color of SHINee, many fans were handing out pearl aqua glow sticks, glow necklaces, balloons, as well as LED operated candles to create a sea of light. At the front of the group where Cassidy and her other helping teammates were, two white tables and one nightstand stood. Fans entering on site were greeted by the sounds of Jonghyun’s music playing on speakers.

On one table was a poster titled “Letters To Jonghyun” where fans could write a personal letter to Jonghyun himself, as long or short as they pleased. The second table held a large portrait of Jonghyun, on top of a white poster which fans could also write comments about Jonghyun. Both tables were accompanied by pearl aqua balloons, and LED opperated candles. The nightstand had a different large portrait of Jonghyun, surrounded by tons of flowers and small gifts.

With the event beginning at 6:30pm, Cassidy grabbed a megaphone and gathered the group together and gave a very touching speech about Jonghyun‘s impact on her life. She then turned the topic to the audience and spoke to the crowd-

You are not alone. You have so many people fighting for you, everyone here is rooting for you, we are all family now. We are all going through the same traumatic event, we all feel pain. But.. when we come together, when we work together to make each other happy, we become stronger. Your depression and your sadness will not become you. Everyone is fighting for you but there is one more person fighting for you tonight… Kim Jonghyun is fighting for you and he will always be there for you. He may not be here on his earth in person but he is definitely here tonight, and he is so thankful for all the love you all have given him.”

As she continued her speech, fans joined closer together in sorrow touched by Cassidy’s words. With the conclusion of her speech, she gave the voice to the people. Volunteers were able to come up to the front and voice their words to Jonghyun with the megaphone for others to hear.

The number of people wanting to speak grew rapidly, resulting in a line of eager fans patiently waiting to say their peace about Jonghyun. One fan took this opportunity to speak about the effects of suicide-

“It’s okay to be sad and it’s okay to be upset but, please don’t let something like this bring you to the point to you ending your life. There are people that care and if you were to be gone, it will effect people for the rest of their life. We love you, we care about you, please be strong and never give up.”

With the conclusion of many fans saying their lovely speeches, there was one special thing left. The city was quiet at that moment; everyone gathered together hand-in-hand with their candles, few with their heads down in sorrow, and sang a beautiful tune to the iconic SHINee debut, “Replay“. With the event coming to an end at 8:30pm, it was a breathtaking sight no one one will be able to forget.

A lovely Shawol named Brittany Jones documented the event in a heartwarming vlog you can watch here. She also interviews other Shawols, and asked questions that recieved heartwarming answers. Thank you Brittany for your vlog. <3

Kim Jonghyun is an iconic music legend who will never be forgotten. He proudly stood up for LGBTQ rights, constantly spoke about his depression, and always had a smile on his face. He was always there for his fans, cheering them on to succeed and do their best in their lives. To many, he was an inspiration that kept us going during hard times.

If you or someone you know are going through depression, do not hesitate to get help. Jonghyun was a voice for those going through depression, it is a very serious illness that no one should go through alone. Please seek help, please love yourself. You are loved, and worth so much more than you understand. Keep going.
