SHINee to take you on a ‘SURPRISE VACATION’ through their travel note


Remember when SHINee took you along on their vacation through ‘SHINee’s Wonderful Day‘?

Well, they’re going to be taking you on the same trip again, but this time not through the camera lens but through their own travel note called ‘SHINee SURPRISE VACATION‘. SM Entertainment said, “The travel note has the many stories of the SHINee members as they traveled through Switzerland, Thailand, England, and Japan. The book contains beautiful scenery and the member’s daily activities, so it’ll interest not only the fans but also travel maniacs.”

This isn’t the first travel-related book from the group as Taemin, Onew, and Key have already published ‘The Sun’s Children‘ on their trip to Barcelona. So this second one should be something to look forward to! It will hit shelves on the 25th!

EXO reveals new group teaser photos for ‘XOXO’ comeback


As you all know by now, EXO is finally getting ready to return after what seems like forever, and they’re continuing the excitement with more photos!

Ahead of the boys’ first full length album, ‘XOXO (Kiss&Hug)‘, coming up, the group has unveiled a new set of group teasers showing the boys shedding their school uniforms for a more casual, sporty attire, going from the model-student image to a more rambunctious group of students!

As mentioned earlier, EXO-K and EXO-M will be promoting as EXO (that means all 12 members) this time around and travel back and forth between Korea and China to promote!

We’ll be greeted with a new teaser each day most likely up until the release, so make sure you’re on the lookout!

When it comes to talent and success in the K-pop industry, IU is a name that cannot be left out. Although IU has only been around for four years, she has already taken over the nation with her sweet, innocent charms and surprisingly savory vocals. With her milky complexion and slim figure, “nation’s little sister” IU has been gaining fans consistently, and the population of her “uncle fan club” has only been growing.

IU had a rather quiet debut in 2008 with “Lost Child” and experienced bursts of fame with “Boo” and “Marshmallow” in 2009. Since then, the public has slowly started to recognize her light yet powerful vocals and her ability to outsing most artists her age. IU captured the hearts of many fanboys with the adorable choreography and cute antics for “Marshmallow” in particular. Soon after, her acoustic covers of various hit songs such as Girls’ Generation‘s “Gee” and Big Bang‘s “Lies” have gone viral, drawing attention yet again to her flexible vocals and musical style.

The adorable singer’s popularity was on the rise when she released a duet with 2AM‘s Seulong, ”Nagging“, for the popular variety show, ‘We Got Married‘. It was soon after that IU reached one of the heights of her career with the release of her hit “Good Day” in 2010. From dramas to endorsements to variety shows, IU made frequent appearances in front of the public who was infatuated by her honest and childlike personality.

As she’s making just about everything she appears in a hit, it’s safe to say that IU is gifted with the “green thumb” of the K-pop industry. IU continues to secure her spot at the top with consistent yet not over-the-top appearances on TV shows and vocal skills, which will one day lead her to become one of South Korea’s legendary vocalists.
