  1. Watch: TWICE Enthusiastically Cheers On JYP Trainee Bang Chan In “Stray Kids” Preview A new preview for JYP survival program “Stray Kids” features a special appearance by TWICE! The clip shows a scene before JYP Entertainment’s trainee showcase, which TWICE attended to perform a special stage. Trainee Bang Chan nervously knocks on the door of TWICE’s waiting room to greet them and is met with an warm welcome. TWICE forms a path and tells him, “This is the road to your debut.” Once he makes it to the center, Jeongyeon is amazed that he is now taller than them and Sana reminisces, “Chan used to be this small,” to which Bang Chan argues, “I wasn’t that small!” TWICE retorts back, saying that it’s true, and Jihyo adds, “You and BamBam were both. Nayeon asks how long he has been training, and he shares that it is his seventh year. Jihyo, who trained for 10 years, comments, “If you fill three more years, you will become like me,” and Bang Chan jokes, “Should I do three more years?” t is also revealed that Bang Chan is the oldest and the leader of the group, and TWICE explodes into cheers. Sana shares, “I saw him leading the other trainees during practice,” and the next scene shows his charismatic leadership during rehearsal. Jeongyeon notes how the Stray Kids members don’t know how he was when he was younger as many of the TWICE members do, and a clip of Bang Chan as a child is revealed. The video ends with TWICE leading a cheer to show their support for Bang Chan and his group. “Stray Kids” airs its first episode on October 17 at 11 p.m. KST via Mnet.

  5. Breaking announcement: 1st MV teaser of "Likey" is shown right at the end on the 2nd day of "ONCE BEGINS" fanmeeting on October 15th. Comeback on October 30th, 6pm-KST, with 1st FULL album! #Likey Get ready and save up for the album, ONCE! 1st MV teaser link -> http://www.vlive.tv/video/44432

    (Please do not quote me, thanks!) Personally, I would believe the 1st MV teaser to be out maybe on October 16th (12:00 to 12.30am-KST), just after they completed their 2-day "ONCE BEGINS" fanmeeting events. (By the way, JYP himself is also releasing his new R&B ballad track on next Monday, the "Blue" portion in view of his "Blue and Red" national tour in December). Following which, the preview of concept art for album(s) design, new photocards, posters and mechandise that are included, pre-order details to come along in the coming week. The 2nd MV teaser coming out on October 23rd. (while TWICE is promoting their Japanese single in Japan, appearing on J-TV shows/radio and meeting J-ONCE in Tokyo-Chiba and Kobe) And lastly the complete MV (and their Korean comeback and actual sale of new album) could release in 2 weeks later on October 30th, before Halloween. [The above scenario might also be delayed +1 day later, i.e. October 17th -1st teaser, October 24th -2nd teaser and October 31st -final MV etc. just because of a clash of dates with JYP releasing his new track].

  8. October Girl Group Brand Reputation Rankings Revealed The Korean Business Research Institute analyzed 56,809,055 pieces of big data from September 12 to October 13 and published the results from their findings for October’s brand reputation rankings among girl groups. The institute analyzed brand reputation of girl groups by analyzing participation, media coverage, communication, and community awareness. As a result, TWICE took first place with a brand reputation index of 6,407,235. Red Velvet came in second place with a total 5,383,260, while GFRIEND followed up with a score of 3,705,350.

Check out the top 30 rankings below: TWICE Red Velvet GFRIEND BLACKPINK Apink MAMAMOO APRIL Cosmic Girls Lovelyz T-ara Weki Meki PRISTIN EXID MOMOLAND Oh My Girl Rainbow LABOUM AOA gugudan INSTAR Girl’s Day Wanna.B DIA SONAMOO DreamCatcher Girls’ Generation LOONA STELLAR 9MUSES FIESTAR Source (1) original source: futurekorea.co.kr cr: soompi
  9. Major Music Distributors Owe Over 17 Billion Won In Royalties To Producers And Artists It has been discovered that four of Korea’s major digital music distributors owe a total of over 17.4 billion won (approximately $15.4 million) in royalties to copyright holders. Cho Seung Rae of the Education, Culture, Sports and Tourism Committee in Korea’s National Assembly recently made an announcement after examining documents from an inspection conducted by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. He stated, “The unpaid royalties and neighboring rights royalties owed to music creators and performers by the ‘Big Four Digital Music Distributors’ amounts to 17.4 billion won during the period from 2014 to the first quarter of 2017.” In this context, “royalties” refers to money paid to music copyright holders such as composers and lyric writers, while “neighboring rights royalties” refers to money paid to singers and musicians, etc. The largest Korean music site Melon, run by Loen Entertainment, owes over half of this amount, with 9.7 billion won (approximately $8.6 million) overdue in royalties and neighboring rights royalties. Genie owes 3.4 billion won (approximately $3 million), Bugs owes 2.3 billion won (approximately $2 million), and Mnet owes 2.1 billion won (approximately $1.9 million). The amount owed to copyright holders has been increasing every year. Cho Seung Rae stated that this issue of unpaid royalties has been brought up continuously in the past, but that the government hasn’t been able to prepare countermeasures and that the companies have not put effort into solving the problem. Melon has stated in response, “Digital music service companies are working with the government and copyright holders to find a solution.” The company added that one of the ways they have been trying to reduce the occurrence of unpaid royalties is maintaining a database of information about copyright in partnership with associations such as the Korean Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers; the Federation of Korean Music Performers; and the Recording Industry Association of Korea. They stated that they have also been taking part in discussions with the ministry for the improvement of laws and systems for the past few years. Source (1) (2) cr: soompi

    In my case, I would believe the female singer in the duet (of JYP's R&B "Blue" single) might be either Heize or Suran.

    There is no distinction between male and female butterflies in pollination.
  15. TWICE Confirmed To Appear On Upcoming Episode Of “Weekly Idol”

    TWICE's recording for Weekly Idol has completed on October 11th. In my personal opinion (please do not quote around, thanks!), we should expect the broadcast to be soon, either on October 25th, which is in their Japanese single's promotion period and between two "high-touch" events in Chiba and Kobe, OR more likely on November 1st (which falls on Jeongyeon's birthday) and just after their Korean comeback.
