Street Woman Fighter Episodes 7+8: Celebrity smorgasbord with Jessi, Psy, Jo Kwon, Jay Park and more, plus final eliminations Hojo 11/11/2021 K-Entertainment
Its name is ‘Pudding’ I’ve recovered from my trauma and am ready to write about a less baffling and tumultuous show. Last time on Street Woman Fighter we saw Lee Chaeyeon and the rest of the WANT team lose to LACHICA in their elimination battle. Even though arguably the biggest draw for the show is now gone, enough personality remains in the rest of the cast to keep us entertained for the last few episodes.
The mission to choreograph Jessi‘s new song “Cold Blooded” acts as more of a mini-mission, as not much broadcast real-estate is afforded to the prep process. We pretty much only get to see the results, which are pretty standard for the most part. Prowdmon get conceptual with their choreo, going for a traditional-inspired sword dance.

Yoochun banned from activities in entertainment industry after ruling in case over his contract IATFB 11/10/2021 K-Entertainment
Yoochun has recently been banned from appearing on television and doing activities in the entertainment industry, though it’s not for what you probably think.
Sure, he has been ordered to pay damages to an alleged victim in his rape case and comically got caught using drugs, but of course it was fucking around with contracts that led to this.
YTN reported on November 10, quoting the words of the legal representative of Yesperar Co. Ltd, Park Yoo Chun’s management company, and stated, “An injunction was made to the Seoul Central District Court to ban Park Yoo Chun from appearing on TV shows and continuing activities in the entertainment industry. Late today (on the 10th), the court decided to cite the application.” The legal representative explained, “The court rejected all of Park Yoo Chun’s defenses and d..
Rookie girl group Azer have a unique K-pop origin story & their latest release is pretty great IATFB 11/09/2021 K-Entertainment
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.

Choi Jong Hoon, convicted gang rapist, released from prison after serving 2.5 years IATFB 11/08/2021 K-Entertainment
Choi Jong Hoon, former F.T Island member and Jung Joon Young/Seungri bestie, has been serving time in prison after his conviction for gang raping a woman. Initially he was sentenced to five years in prison, which was light all things considered, but he somehow got it reduced to just 2.5 years on appeal. As he started his sentenced on May 9 in 2019, today he was released from prison.
On the 8th, Choi Jong-hun returned to society after serving 2.5 years for gang rape. He still has to complete 80 hours of mandatory sexual assault treatment program and won’t be able to be employed by any child and youth-related organizations and disabled welfare facilities for three years.
He’s still on probation for other convictions in his case, but he’s still already walking free after all that. Oh yeah, and while he was in prison he t..
[Review] Somi’s anthemic “XOXO” is simple but effective IATFB 11/08/2021 Editorials, K-Entertainment, Reviews
For a moment in time, it looked like Somi was gonna be stuck with the typically sparse YG Entertainment release schedule, but she has been churning out music this year like never before and it culminates in the release of her first album.
More worrying than the amount of music she’s been releasing, however, has been the quality of it. For the most part it’s been a bunch of nondescript releases that seemed more focused on trying to go viral on TikTok than anything else. “XOXO” doesn’t exactly change the latter part of the previous sentence, but it does add music quality to the mix.
“XOXO” is an extremely simple song and whether it works for you or not is also fittingly quite simple. It essentially comes down to whether the anthemic, chanted chorus works for you or not. For me, it hits the spot, relying less on theatrics and m..
