Twice is coming to Brazil. While not my favorite girl group, I’m definitely attending their concert.

My camera does it too sometimes :( Glad you enjoyed the show as well.

Twice should hopefully be my next one and last for this year (unless Taeyeon or BoA tours). I've spent so much money on these trips.
Why are you reading my mind o.o

Not mines either but i'll still go if they come to Toronto or Hamilton ^_^

If you google "twice the forum tickets" you should see a link at least for the los angeles location. I was waiting for ticketmaster to show prices but the Forum venue itself is showing prices through its portal and it's.. expensive. I don't think I'll be able to go if those prices are true.

Another tour this year

Twice is reportedly appearing at the Dallas stop, both Ticketmaster and Linestop have them as part of the line-up for that show. (Edit: Ticketmaster has since removed it) A Brazilian website also reported yesterday that Twice will be performing in Sao Paolo this July, so we're probably getting an announcement about one or more additional dates soon.

Yaas finally




VIP Nation:

For the U.S. Tour, PL1 & PL2 individual tickets are separate from VIP Packages offered on VIPNation. However, both VIP gold and silver packages will include a reserved price level 1 ticket.
So probably $300 for hi-touch and $400 for group photo?

Looks like it was a mistake :(


I enjoyed this a lot.

Finally got to listen to Park Bom's 4:44. I like it, but her previous song is definitely better.

Also it's being speculated that (G)-Idle is going to Kcon

Not sure how I feel about this one. May be another “Secret Garden”. Meaning a song that I didn’t really like at first, but really grew on me over time.

Oh My Gods are so good, yet another twist to their trademark sound. The full album is amazing and has so many different moods, with some familiar sounds and other completely different from what we have heard from the group before.

Vogue is super sexy.


Crime scene is a bop.

Not only are we getting EXID on May 15, but also Hyolyn. Can't wait for next week.

Going to listen to OMG in a bit.

As we all know, Korean celebrities are involved in car accidents with alarming regularity, and sadly the latest accident resulted in the death of actress Han Ji Seong.

This isn't usually the sort of thing I would bring up in this thread but the circumstances in which she was killed are kind of baffling.

Basically, she stopped her car in the second lane of a three-lane expressway so her husband could take a leak. While he was by the side of the road, she got out of the car and was hit by both a taxi and an SUV.

It is reported by SBS’s “News 8” that Han Ji Seong’s husband told police that after asking her to stop the car, he got out of the passenger’s side and went to a flower bed on the side of the road. When he returned after relieving himself, he saw that the accident had occurred.

The police have confirmed that the vehicle’s black box shows him moving towards the flower bed. Her husband stated that he does not know why the car was stopped in the second lane of a three-lane expressway rather than on the shoulder, or why Han Ji Seong got out and walked to the back of the vehicle.

While I have no wish to make light of something like this, you have to wonder what on earth she and her husband were thinking.

This song gets better with each listen. And the fanchants are on point.

Bonus performance, since OMG album tracks are better than most band's singles:

I think Binnie has my favorite vocal timbre in k-pop.

The Mnet 4K resolution straight-on camera vids of OMG are about the closest we'll have until official dance practice vids are released.

I think Binnie has my favorite vocal timbre in k-pop.
When 'Remember Me' was released me and NameUser touched on it being the first OMG single that Binnie sang first. She has a nice voice and was underutilised for a while. Binnie is also an underrated dancer, with YooA and Mimi getting most of the attention.

Oh, davidwangchoi :(

I liked a lot his posts. Hope he is doing OK and he will eventaully comeback ro show another side of him and a better image.

For some reason I enjoy a lot that WayV track, it has a nice atmosphere, and the TVXQ-lite breakdown is also something else.

I'm finally listening to that japanese EXID album



10 tracks, half of them are jp versions of older songs, 5 are new.

It's... not very good :( and a classic example of why I just do not care when korean artists do Japanese music. Like, there's already a handful of japanese tourists in Korea out there doing kpop stuff... if Target can sell BTS albums now then just release your music in Korean everywhere!!

anyways, if the new record is their last then it better be the best record ever, because other than this and their super early stuff EXID is a group that just does not disappoint and releases nothing but great songs!!!

Apparently, EXID's japanese contracts expire next year, so we are probably going to see something on that end.

Apink is going to Houston, but apparently the convention has a bad rep. Decisions...


Seems like an easy "no" for me.

There are stories of vendors and artists not being paid, convention not providing translators or covering meals, and one of the owners asking a cosplayers for nudes.

Fandom is already trying to get Apink's agency to cancel.

Yeah I've been reading more about it. Such a shame since it's just a 3 hour drive.

Hopefully they do cancel and another TX convention picks them up. Maybe the Dallas Korean festival?

I managed to get floor tickets to Twice in LA yesterday. Sucks for anyone having to go through filthy scalpers :/

Didn't get floor but got some good p1 side stage tickets for Twice in Newark.

Venue didn't sell out for ours though. Plenty of p5 base price tickets still up on ticketmaster.

Welp, I have found my thread.
Count on me to find the gaming thread on a Kpop-related forum, as well as the Kpop thread on a video game-related forum. That's my thing.

Anyway, maybe people would recognize my avatar now.
I've been waiting for her debut for almost 4 years now, it's finally coming, my fangirl heart is excited to say the least!

Chungha coming back during the Summer is only fitting, since she's the new Summer Bop Queen. Can't wait for it!

Weki Meki's 2nd teaser for Picky Picky:



As a huge I.O.I fan, I'm always following all of the girls in what they do nowadays. DoDaeng are looking amazing in this, hoping the song to be fun even though it might not be my jam.

EDIT: Backtracked a bit, as a Somi fan it was very Y I K E S to see y'all shading the hell out of her here, while she arguably has more talent than y'all give her credit for, however, shading her for leaving JYPE, implying she has made a bad decision doing so, while all the evidence most of Somi fans have so far, is that she probably got kicked out of the ITZY lineup in the first place, felt quite weird. Y'all can stop blaming her for "deciding to leave JYPE" because maybe that decision wasn't hers in the first place. At the time of the news, she liked comments on IG that pointed towards that explanation. So hum, yeah, super cool to shade a girl who got booted out of groups lineups not only once but twice (no pun intended) by the same company she showed loyalty to all these years. Anyway, the whole situation is still unclear, but don't draw conclusion so fast as to why things happened, she always said she wanted to debut in a group again, she never said anything about going solo for all the 4 years I've been stanning her, and I'm pretty sure she'd prefer to debut in a group rather than as a solo, but this ain't an option for her anymore, she failed at it twice, and her own brand and reputation will always get in the way of the members she will be teamed up with (just like Sejeong & Mina still majorly eclipse everyone else on Gugudan, or Chaeyeon in DIA, and so on). Anyway, just here to bring some much needed nuance here.

Mina leaves AOA, FNCE says group will continue as 5
Surprised 5 of them renewed considering the current state of the group. Probably a good call for Mina if she wants to keep doing acting, she was barely getring any lines lately anyway. She will be missed if they do keep releasing music, tho.

Until you bring some solid receipts, your theory is as valid as ours. JYP signed her as an artist after IOI, and investors meetings said her and Ryujin were going to debut in the next girl group.

Obviously some plans changed and official statements show that there was a contract termination for whatever reason.

If she was as good as you claim, wouldn't JYP have fought to keep her under JYP too? They have the upper hand.

Anyway, welcome.
