SBS’ Kpop Star to launch its second season come this November.
Jang Woo Hyuk is going to produce his very first idol group along with his company WH Entertainment and is already on the move holding auditions.
Hallyu Super-group KARA extends their contract with their Japanese label Universal Music Japan.
Infinite streamed their first concert on the group’s official Youtube page. Unfortunately you aren’t able to watch it today, but you can bask in the knowledge that it is a thing that happened once.

Debuts/Comebacks/New Releases:
CN Blue releases Ear Fun

Tritops [I the Tri Tops?] ft. PO (of Block B) – I’m Badboy

Simon D & Lady Jane duet in Six Thirty

Busker Busker (of Superstar K3) debuts with Cherry Blossom Ending

SPICA releases first repackage – Painkiller

SISTAR to come back on April 12th, and they apparently shot their music video in Las Vegas. Let’s hope it’s better than the last Kpop music video shot in The City of Sin


SM’s debuted artists to become shareholders of the company.

Rookie Spotlight:
Well of course, you have to know this will be SPICA. If you follow me (Dame Dr Foxy Brown) on Twitter, I’ve only been going slightly insane in the past few days over SPICA. We both showed little to no interest in this B2M group (same company as Lee Hyori, Kim Kyu Jong and Heo Youngsaeng) after they started off with Potently & Russian Roulette, both lackluster songs for a debut, though good in their own right. However, with their repackage, they unloaded on us what easily should’ve been their debut track, Painkiller. I could gush here about how much I love the song, but I think we mention that enough times in the actual recording. This fivesome is made up of Kim BoA, Park Juhyun, Park Narae, Yang Jiwon (formerly of Battle Shinhwa’s/Good Entertainment’s Five Girls & T-ARA) and Kim BoHyung.

These girls can SANG, and they’re easy on the eyes too.
