Of Korea’s Driving Culture And Pop

Motoring and pop culture might be two mutually exclusive concepts most of the time (unless we are looking at cars featured in popular movies/songs). However, the dangers or problems that come with motoring always tend to hit at home when we hear news of an artiste being involved in an accident while commuting from one schedule to another, or an artiste being charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

As Seoulbeats is not one to kick someone while they are down, it is not worth speculating on the recent spate of celebrity drink driving events, rather trying to view it from the perspective of the driving culture in South Korea.

[Exclusive] Interview with Jay Park: Roundtable at the MTV World Stage in Malaysia

Soompi got the chance to attend a roundtable interview with Jay Park before his performance at MTV World Stage in Malaysia! We came equipped with a list of questions prepared by our very own Soompiers, as well as some of our own. It was our first time seeing Jay Park in person, although he had been to Singapore a couple of times. Surrounded by an entire security crew, our first (honest) impression of him was, “Well, he looks a little arrogant!” But we found out later that we were so wrong! Generally we’re accustomed to waiting awhile for these very busy celebrities, but the interview with Jay started earlier than scheduled. He was already seated when we were led into the interview room, so to our great dismay, we didn’t have enough time to prepare our video equipment.

Clad comfortably in a white sleeveless hoodie and black jeans, Jay looked very relaxed and was humming a tune as we settled into our seats
