SBS to hold auditions for an idol group under their new (expensive) show“K-pop Star” with JYPE, SME & YGE to help in auditing the auditions (whatever that means) to begin airing on July 12th.
Oh hey, Super Junior’s Kim Kibum will be back, doing something, acting maybe?

This week we’re taking a look at the Gaon chart for the first half of 2011, which is widely known as Korea’s attempt at creating a similar unarguable chart as Billboard or Japan’s Oricon. We don’t know much about the points system for the digital singles, but it is a good way for the International fan to see how different our tastes appear to be from the popular Korean taste.
Cheon Sang Ji Hee the Grace debuted in 2005 as the “female” DBSK, but really as a very talented female acapella group. It was composed of former solo singer Dana, former Isak & Jiyeon member Lina, Sunday, and ballet dancer, Stephanie. The group had one Korean album in 2007 named One More Time Ok? along with a few Korean singles. They also entered the Japanese market on the heels of their “older brothers” Dong Bang Shin Ki and became known as Tenjochiki. Their last major album release in Japan was in 2009 before they seemingly withdrew from that market as well.
After Stephanie became injured things became quiet on the news front, and then after recovery Stephanie took up ballet seriously again and is now performing as a dancer, while we get Dana and Sunday performing the first duties to bring the group back.
