Jay Park, Gaeko, Simon D, E-Sens, Dynamic Duo, Swings, Supreme Team, Amoeba Culture
Korean Hip-Hop Artists Respond To Amoeba Culture Diss Track Battle With Their Own Songs As the battle between former Supreme Team member E-Sens and his previous record label Amoeba culture (more specifically one of the company's founders, Dynamic Duo's Gaeko) wages on, other Korean hip hop artists are jumping in to share their two cents.
In the past couple of days among the diss tracks released by Swings, E-Sens, Gaeko, and Simon D - a host of other artists are speaking out.
While none of them appear to have any specific complaints like those brought up by E-Sens against his former record label, the general feeling is that they long for a time when it was less about the money and more about the music.
Simon D mentioned something similar in his diss track response to Swings saying, "You just sold my name to get #1, you f*cker. That's my last mercy. The fake "Show Me The Money" brand new pussy. You knelt down in front of the contract. You pig, you're still not ripe on top of the fire. You're not raw or rare, just disgusting."
Artists like Diz'one and Nuttyverse have all released songs following in the footsteps of their K-hip-hop peers and taking a page out of American rapper Kendrick Lamar's book.
In his song "Control" Lamar calls out Canadian artist Drake and now their Korean counterparts are following that method to let everyone know what they think too.
The general theme is that the industry as we see it today is a far-cry from how it was perceived ten years ago and very different from how these artists expected things to turn out.Many of the tracks claim that the Korean music industry is full of no-talent rappers who are continually disrespectful to their colleagues.
Korean American hip-hop star Jay Park even added in his thoughts on the matter, only he took to Twitter instead of making his own track.
"Yall see whats goin on with HIP HOP in KOREA right now?? shit getting crazy!!! I love it!" he tweeted.
Shortly afterward Jay Park added, "KENDRICK LAMAR EFFECT~! Crossed the sea's all the way into KOREA!! SHEITTTTTT."

Seo In Guk, Choi Kang Hee Respond To Rumors They Are Gay On South Korean Talk Show 'Incarnation' [VIDEO]
South Korean entertainers Seo In Guk (pictured) and Choi Kang Hee responded to rumors they are gay on the Seoul Broadcasting System talk show Incarnation on Tuesday. South Korean entertainers Seo In Guk and Choi Kang Hee (pictured) responded to rumors they are gay on the Seoul Broadcasting System talk show Incarnation on Tuesday. South Korean entertainers Seo In Guk and Choi Kang Hee responded to rumors they are gay on the Seoul Broadcasting System talk show "Incarnation" on Tuesday.
Singer and actor Seo In Guk explained why the word gay appears with his name on most Korean search engines on the program.
"I've heard the gay rumors," said the 25-year-old star.
The K-pop star told hosts Shin Dong Yup, Kim Hee Seon and Yoon Jong Shin that the Internet branding of his sexual orientation merely had to do with the roles he had played as an actor.
"Even in related searches, as the related term, 'Seo In Guk gay' will pop up," Seo In Guk said.
"This is because on the cable drama 'Reply 1997, idol group INFINITE's Hoya's character had a crush on me. Also in K.Will's music video, I played the role of a guy having a one-sided crush on another guy, Ahn Jae Hyun. Afterwards, gay rumors kept surfacing and so the related search terms came up."
When actress and radio personality Choi Kang Hee was brought out, her rumored lesbianism was the first thing host Shin Dong Yup brought up.
"Out of all the rumors about Choi Kang Hee, there are rumors that she is a lesbian," the host said. "There's even a rumor that she is dating [female comedian] Song Eun Yi."
Choi Kang Hee responded that she too had experienced problems with the South Korean Internet search engines labeling her sexuality.
"[The word lesbian] keeps coming up on the related search terms on portal sites so I keep erasing it," she said.
"The rumors never reach me but it keeps showing up on the related search terms...I was even in the top five for a lesbian popularity poll."
Guest Bong Tae Gyu couldn't believe the star was being so candid.
"Are you allowed to talk like this?" he asked.
But Choi Kang Hee wasn't done dropping truth bombs, opening up about her co-star on the Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation show "Seventh Grade Civil Servant, Joo Woon, who apparently got so close to the actress he started calling her nuna.
Nuna is a word in Korean meaning "older sister" that is also used as slang for an older woman that a male is close to.
Although she admitted being attracted to Joo Woon, she said she didn't consider dating him.
"No," Choi Kang Hee said. "I don't [date] celebrities. I don't see male celebrities as men."

Reply 1997Traveling back to 1997 was so successful for the producers of the drama "Reply 1997," they have decided to take the audience even further back in time. They set the second season in 1994.
The drama, "Reply 1997," became a surprise hit in 2012, generating record-breaking 6% cable ratings. It centered on the lives of five friends in Busan, who meet at a high school reunion dinner. The 16-episode story moved back and forth between their lives, starting when they were 18 in 1997. It ends in 2012 when one couple announces they are getting married.
Part of its appeal was the way it examined the fan culture that first emerged in the 1990s when idol groups such as H.O.T were popular. The series soundtrack featured music by H.O.T. and DJDOC.
The second season will be set in 1994 and will feature various topics that were popular then. There are plenty of rumors. Some say that music by Seo Taiji and Kim Gun Mo and popular dramas of the time, such as the basketball hit, "The Last Match," will be featured.
According to a statement by tvN, "Although basketball will be covered, it won't be the main focus. "We don't even have the synopsis yet. We're going to melt the various topics that were popular back in 1994."
While the show is still in its planning stages, one thing is certain. The second season will feature director, Woo Ji Won, and writer Lee Woo Jung, who worked on the original season. As of yet, no actors have been cast.
Netizens are not sure that a second season can live up to the first as no sequel has ever done as well as the original series. Others said that the success of the original series was due to actress A Pink's Jung Eun Ji and she is not likely to appear in the second season.
"Reply 1997" also starred Seo In Guk, Shin So Yool, Infinite's Hoya, Eun Ji Won, and Lee Shi Un. The series earned a variety of K-Drama Star awards, including Best Couple Award for Seo In Guk and Jung Eun Ji, Rising Star awards for both Seo In Guk and Jung Eun Ji and Best OST.
Seo In Guk and Jung Eun Ji also won 2012 Style Icon Awards and 2012 Korea Drama Awards for Best Couple.

Respond 1997 Season 2 to be about Basketball?Last year's 90s sensation 'Respond 1997' is returning with the basketball glory years of Lee Sang-min, Woo Ji-won, etc.
A close source revealed during a phone interview that tvN, the cable channel that produced '1997,' has decided on the theme of basketball for the second season of the show. "Writers of the show are gathering information on 1990s basketball from avid fans who lived through those years," he commented. The producer and the main screenwriter from season one have reunited and are in full swing in preparation for the highly anticipated second season.
Rumor has it that a big factor in selecting basketball as the theme of the show was that producer Shin and writer Lee are both classes of 1994, a period when basketball and Seotaeji created an unprecedented sensation that swept across the nation.
1994 was the first year that a college basketball team won the championship trophy at the national basketball tournament. Back then, Yonsei University had large followings similar to what we see with idol artist groups nowadays. So it was a huge deal. Such popularity with basketball led to the production of "The Last Battle" featuring Jang Dong-gun and Shim En-ha as well as the inauguration of professional basketball league, KBL.
Originally, season one was set in 1994. But when Eun Ji-won, a member of Sech's Kiss, was cast, the time period was moved to 1997. "Return 1997" brought about nostalgia of the late 90s as the show depicted the first wave of K-pop, most notably H.O.T. and Sech's Kiss, in the happenings of a local high school.

On Thursday, tvN "E! News" released the behind-the-scenes of Seo In Guk and Jung Eunji's fountain kiss scene. Seo In Guk prepared the kiss scene by doing push ups and Jung Eunji started gargling her mouth after saying "I have nothing to prepare. I'm the one being kissed."
Jung Eunji had to kick Seo In Guk when he kisses, but as he actually kissed Jung Eunji showed her shyness, saying "When do I have to kick him?"
