8 Artists with that ‘Unique Voice’

Korea is completely inundated with singers from the pretty idols and talented dancers to the indie artists and OST stars. However, amongthe Korean artists I know, the names that immediately flood my head when I hearthe phrase "unique voice" form a much shorter list. Much like the "it factor", it"s a bit hard to quantify but when you hear it, you just know that there"s something special there.


Keepin mind that this list is solely based on my opinion and the artists are who I deem to have unique voices. Also, I"mlimited to the scope of artists that I"ve been exposed to so I apologize in advance for notincluding your favorite artist!


Kim Yoon Ah

Let"sstart with Kim Yoon Ah. If you don"t know already, Kim Yoon Ah is the leadsinger of alternative rock band Jaurim

EXO ‘Overdose’ Album Release Postponed To Undetermined Date Due To Ferry Tragedy

EXO"s "Overdose" release date has been delayed.

Through a statement on the official EXO website, SM Entertainment has made the decision to postpone the release of Overdose until a yet to be determined date. This comes in light of the April 16 ferry accident which has halted all music chart programs and major entertainment activities.Fans of EXO had the opportunity to watch the April 15 live stream broadcast through Samsung Music which included the music video for Overdose, however, the video has yet to be released.

In the statement, SM Entertainment provides their primary reasons for postponing the album, “The decision has been made to offer our condolences to the victims and our hopes and wishes that the missing persons will return back safely. We ask the fans who have been waiting for the release of the album for their understanding and patience

“Sly and Single Again” Episode 14

The number one form of communication in "Sly and Single Again" is eavesdropping. Most of the important plot points shared between characters this episode were accidentally overheard and observed. It has happened quite a bit before as well, but this episode had an abundance of eavesdroppers.

Jung-woo is the primary eavesdropper, which makes sense because he tends to stalk Ae-ra in a fashion that could become creepy. He overheard that she miscarried during their marriage and that jerks him into an entirely new understanding of Ae-ra, her anger, her pain and their divorce. While I appreciate the fact that Jung-woo grows because of what he's overheard, it would've been better had he heard it directly from Ae-ra. Part of their marriage issues were the secrets and unilateral decisions. If they can overcome that, perhaps they can be together again

SHINee Jonghyun’s Fan Gifts Used By MBC Production Team Instead Of The Idol

Jonghyun"s Polish fan must be disappointed by news that her gift was used by production staff.

It is common place for international K-Pop fans to send gifts overseas to their favorite idols in Korea.Quite often, gifts which hold high monetary value or emotional sentiment are mailed to general addresses within agencies, concert venues, and television studios.Recently, fans were discouraged and saddened by a television script writer for MBC who bragged about enjoying snack gifts that were intended for SHINee"s Jonghyun.The snacks were sent to Jonghyun,care of MBC, with the staff at the studio using the gifts instead of sending them along to the idol. While this may be a common practice,the script writer thoughtlessly bragged about eating the snacks with total disregard to the Polish fan who had sent the present.

One of the most disturbing aspects of this situation was that the script writer took photos of the consumed gifts and included statements such as, “the unfortunate Poland fan girl probably feels worse than having ridden the wrong bus

Celebrity Spotlight Interview: Actress/Host Christine Lee Talks About Her Life, Career And Affinity For YG Artists


Entertainer Christine Lee talks to KpopStarz about her career, her life, and some of her favorite stars.

Is it safe to call you an actress/host/blogger? And if so, what do you enjoy about being all three?

Haha yeah, it"s lookin" like I"m up to all three. I feel that I"m changing and learning something every single day; all three are things that look to life experiences and adventures for fuel and inspiration. I feel I"m a better actor when I recognize the truths and stakes of daily life, I"m a better host when I learn more what it means to listen well and that blogging is all about giving a voice to things both discovered and undiscovered in and around me.

You beat out tons of people to be a host for Playstation
