Alexander to perform with U-KISS one more time

5 Mar

Fans were shocked when Korean news reports began to say that Kibum and Alexander had officially withdrawn from the male group U-KISS. Reports say that this had been decided months ago and NH Media made the decision to pull out the two members to give the group more vocal strength.

Unfortunately, Kibum’s contract with the entertainment company was terminated in January. On the other hand, while Alexander’s contract was also terminated, NH has made a condition that he would be given a freelance contract if U-KISS were to have overseas activities. Meanwhile, Kibum will be focusing on the company that he owns with his brother, while Alexander works on other unknown projects.

At the end of January, an announcement had been made regarding a U-KISS mini-concert in Medan, Indonesia. The concert will take place on March 5th and many are wondering how the concert will be carried out, now that two members have been pulled out. Even though he is no longer under contract with the U-KISS, Alexander will perform on March 5th to fulfill the concert contract. Unfortunately, because Kibum’s contract was terminated in January, he will not be performing with the group.

After the concert, it has been reported that U-KISS will make their comeback with a ballad and will introduce two new members to the group. The two new members have already been reported to be hard at work for their debut. U-KISS fans will also not be able to read any new tweets from the U-KISS members until after the concert.

How are you taking the news? Will you welcome the two U-KISS members for their debut?

JYJ Thanked Fans For The Fan-Run Internet Broadcasting Station

5 Mar

Towards the fans who set up an internet broadcasting station dedicated to them, male group JYJ expressed their gratitude.

Yesterday on March 3rd at 20:00 JYJ’s Korean fans launched their internet broadcasting station for the first time. The website got such hot reaction as so many fans connected at the same time thus put the server paralyzed.

This JYJ internet station that is created by fans as expected is not an official website. However JYJ official revealed that JYJ members indeed notice about this project through a phone call with Star News on Tuesday afternoon, he said, “We fully notice that fans made their own capital investments (to build the station). In fact, JYJ members are also aware of this matter, they’re really grateful for the love of all fans,”

Furthermore, “However if we recognize this internet broadcasting station dedicated to JYJ, ‘iloveJYJ’ as an official station, it will lose its genuineness. We want to preserve this fansite as a website that is created by fans due to their pure love.”
