What do 2NE1, B2ST, and T-ara’s comebacks in late June-July mean for new artists?

Posted: 26 May 2012 03:50 AM PDT

The comebacks of idol groups 2NE1, B2ST, and T-ara have new, hopeful artists a little weary.

There are reports that the comebacks of these powerhouse idol groups in late June and early July do not bode well for upcoming artists. All three groups have proven themselves to be worthy adversaries in the K-Pop world as they’ve won first place on music television programs in addition to achieving all-kills on music charts.

2NE1 is slated to return with an album in mid-June. The YG Entertainment group is known to have had all-kills on music charts with their tracks: “Don’t Cry“, “Lonely“, “I Am The Best“, “Hate You“, and “Ugly“.

Idol group B2ST is expected to be making their comeback towards the end of June. They’re said to be in the final stages of their album production, though no official announcement has been made yet. B2ST is known to stand out in terms of music and performance quality. The group enjoyed success with their track “On Rainy Days” last year when they won first place with the song on KBS‘s ‘Music Bank‘. In addition to this, B2ST’s ballad and dance tracks have done well on music charts.

Last but not least, T-ara is scheduled to make their comeback on July 7. T-ara, whose popularity skyrocketed after they reached number one on music programs for the very first time with hit track “Roly Poly“, have proven themselves as stiff competition. Fans are highly anticipating their upcoming single “Day by Day“, which will be choreographed by Jonte Moaning. The choreographer is famous for working on “Single Ladies” with Beyonce in the past. T-ara will be returning as an 8-member group with the addition of another member at a later time.

A music representative recently pointed out that June might be a bad month for new hopeful artists. “If they avoid Big Bang and Wonder Girls, who will comeback in early June, they [will be facing] 2NE1, B2ST, and T-ara on music charts. It’s extremely difficult to schedule a comeback for other artists.”

Former member of Chocolate discusses reason for disbandment on ‘Global Super Idol’

Posted: 26 May 2012 12:25 AM PDT

Ex-idol group member Lee Hyun Ah revealed the reason behind her former group’s disbandment.

On KBSN audition program ‘Global Super Idol‘, the former member of Chocolate gave another try at the entertainment industry by auditioning for the show.

Lee Hyun Ah revealed, “Because of an incident that should have never occurred in the entertainment industry, and because it was something that a woman could feel a sense of shame about, I had to give up my dreams.

She continued, “But singing on stage is the only source of escape for me, [it's] where I felt like I could breathe, so I gathered my courage and decided to try again.”

Lee Hyun Ah and the other members of Chocolate debuted under H Line Entertainment in 2010, but with rumors arising of sexual favors involving the CEO and trainees under the agency, the group had no choice but to disband and leave the company as they were swept up in a controversy they were not a part of.

In addition, Chocolate should not be confused with the still-active girl group Chocolat.
