  1. [V Report] Twice ends Singapore trip with a splash Twice wrapped up its two-day Singapore trip with a splash. The Saturday broadcast showed the nine members at a swimming pool located on top of a building, all clad in swimming suits and towels. Against the backdrop of the Singapore skyline, the members started sharing their memories during the short trip, such as playing games and completing mission challenges. Twice said in unison that it was the group’s first time to travel abroad in a full group, the reason why the trip was so memorable. The girls also thanked the staff of “Twice TV,” the group’s signature reality show, for taking them to Singapore and letting them enjoy what they wanted to do. “I wonder where we will go for season seven of ‘Twice TV,’” said Jungyeon. Jihyo, who couldn’t perform fully at the previous concert in Singapore due to her leg injury, said, “I felt so wistful for not being able to perform at 100% here in Singapore last time. I’m so glad that we can be here all together once again.” Led by Jihyo, the members jumped into the pool making a big splash, their way of wrapping up the trip.

  5. [INFO] Day6 proud to be ‘quality guaranteed’

    [INTERVIEW] Day 6 completes 'Every Day6' project By Kim Jae-heun JYP Entertainment’s rock band Day 6 released their second studio album “MOONRISE,” Wednesday, completing the annual project “Every DAY6” it started this summer. The group has released 25 songs so far through the project, and its members feel the year 2017 has been prolific indeed. “We are proud to be able to finish the project Every DAY6 and we are fully satisfied,” said Sungjin, one of the members, during an interview with The Korea Times at a cafe in Sinsa, Seoul, last week. “We came up with the idea for this project last year and then submitted 20 songs to get confirmation from the company. The members of the board answered encouragingly, saying they wanted to hear all of the songs before the release of two every month. That was the start of our project.” The new studio album consists of the 18 digital singles released over the past year, as well as three new songs to be released in December. The three are “I Like You,” “Better Better” and “I Will Try.” The lead track “I Like You” is a rock ballad song that reinterpreted the late 80s-style of rock sound that repeats the phrase of “I Like You” in the chorus. The song is about a clumsy young man’s truthful love and the boy band hopes it becomes a steady seller serenade. The track “Better Better” is a pop rock song unfolding over a dramatic tune. It depicts how valuable one’s lover is as she is the reason for his life. Singer Wonpil wrote another new track “I Will Try,” which was inspired by his mother’s unconditional love for him and his siblings. He said he wanted to share it with others through the song. Wonpil said he invested much time recording the sound of a grand piano he played while five members of the band sang the vocals in harmony. “We believe we were blessed to be able to introduce digital songs every month this year. We were busy and had no break but we were able to try many different genres and music styles that we wanted to pursue before our debut. We improved a lot,” said member Jae. Communicating with the fans during concerts is one of the improvements the group said they have made this year. Day 6 debuted in Sept. 2015 and didn’t have many opportunities to perform in big concert halls. Entering their third year as the youngest band at JYP Entertainment, Day 6 members said they now feel comfortable and relaxed about their performances in front of a crowd. “In retrospect, we were poor at communicating with fans and staging good performances in our early days since we made our debut. But our experience has accumulated as we played more and now we find ourselves confident. We needed time to improve our performance,” said member Sung Jin. “We started on a small stage and with street busking -- where seats for audiences were limited. Recently we held another busking event at Shincheon and many people joined our performance. When our first album was released, nobody in my school recognized me. But now we get invitations to perform at school festivals where audiences in their hundreds cheer for us which is great,” added Young K. The band does not dwell on the score card now. But they are confident about their songs and have a strong belief in them. Day 6 members were optimistic and said their songs will shine some day. In the foreseeable future, the band also wants to participate at the Glastonbury festival, which is held annually in Pilton, Somerset, England. cr: The Korea Times
