  1. YG, SM, And JYP Touch On Their Agency Plans For 2018 2018 has kicked off with a rush of comebacks! Just halfway through the first month, artists from the “Big 3” agencies are already showing high levels of activity. To find out more about what’s ahead, news outlet OSEN contacted YG Entertainment, SM Entertainment and JYP Entertainment and asked about their plans for 2018. YG Entertainment plans on being far from quiet in the upcoming months. iKON is returning with a studio album on January 25, and the group is expected to promote actively in Korea. BLACKPINK recently launched their reality show, and WINNER is likely to make a February comeback. BIGBANG won’t be able to promote as a group for awhile due to military enlistment, but female artists like BLACKPINK, Lee Hi, and Akdong Musician’s Lee Soo Hyun will make up for their absence. The artists of each sub-label will also continue music production. All SM Entertainment artists are expected to be very active in 2018, beginning with BoA’s comeback in January. TVXQ is also planning on a Korean comeback during the first half of the year. NCT is launching a new project this year, which is expected to also be in the first half of the year. SHINee will begin activities again with their Japanese concert in February. Super Junior will continue their diverse work with variety programs and more. Girls’ Generation is expected to have more solo than group activities for the year. JYP Entertainment is beginning the year with Wooyoung’s solo album, which was released on January 15, and Suzy’s solo comeback, which is scheduled for January 29. As 2PM members enlist one by one, they will be focusing on solo activities. GOT7 and TWICE are both expected to make at least two comebacks in Korea this year. DAY6 is continuing their growth with a new project. Artists like NakJoon, Park Jimin, and Baek Yerin are working on new music. Stray Kids released their pre-debut album on January 8 and will promote actively with their debut this year. Which agency are you looking forward to the most in 2018? Source (1) cr: soompi

The magazine, which will feature the Golden Disc Awards winners in a special pictorial for its February issue, has shared a sneak peek of its footage from behind the scenes of the award ceremony. CeCi Korea first posted a clip of the artists who attended the first night of the show, which focused on digital releases. The video features blink-and-you’ll-miss-them glimpses of Red Velvet, BTS, TWICE, BTOB, GFRIEND, WINNER, Bolbbalgan4, Heize, and MCs Lee Sung Kyung and Lee Seung Gi.

In accordance with the “waiting room” theme of the shoot, girl groups TWICE, Red Velvet, and GFRIEND went for a casual look, lounging around on sofas and feeding each other snacks. BTOB took things a step further—the members were their usual playful selves as they fooled around, striking the most dramatic poses imaginable. The video also features a brief glimpse of singer Suran and band Hyukoh. The next clip features the winners of the second night of the ceremony, which honored achievements in physical album releases.
