Rookie girl group Azer are a rarity in that they’re truly unique, but not so much in concept and music as origin story. Rather than hailing from a company, they are instead friends from Howon University’s K-pop department (which is a thing, apparently).
Howon University, situated in the peaceful city of Gunsan, North Jeolla, established its K-pop department in 2019 as a part of the school’s innovation projects. The decision came after talks with professors from the division of applied music and fortunately, the results were successful. The department filled all its 30 student slots without even posting an advertisement and the program has expanded, taking on 43 students this year, as the number of applicants continues to increase. The class of 21 beat a competition ratio of 8:52 to 1. Campuses outside Seoul ..

Lee Young Ji’s “Day & Night” single features Jay Park and she (unfortunately) goes with an R&B focus

Lee Young Ji’s “Day & Night” single features Jay Park and she (unfortunately) goes with an R&B focus IATFB 11/09/2021 K-Entertainment
19-year-old Lee Young Ji made a name for herself by winning the third season of High School Rapper and later went on to feature on Good Girl. However, like many other female rappers before her, she has gone down a more R&B route for her latest single “Day & Night” that impressively features Jay Park.
It’s not that it’s a bad song or that her voice isn’t good or that I blame her for going in an inevitably more mainstream direction, but I was really really really looking forward to what she could do in a more hip-hop focused offering and I hope she still pursues that going forward.
She’s also a lot of fun anyway, so support.
