Park Si Hoo has finally appeared for his police summon.
Thankfully, he appeared at the police station at around 10 AM KST on the 1st. He was dressed in a neat suit, and when surrounded by the press, he stated, “I’m sorry to have bothered you. I will reveal the definite truth through the police investigation.”
About 10 hours later at 7:55 PM KST, he exited the police station and this time he stated, “There are a lot of things I want to share, but I have explained myself adequately in the police investigation. I will definitely reveal the truth.” He has reportedly complied diligently to the investigation to prove his innocence.
The section chief of the police made his official report to the press before Park Si Hoo was released at 7:50 PM KST, saying, “We wrapped up the adequate investigation on Park Si Hoo which lasted from 10AM until now with his lawyer present. We are planning to decide on what the future schedules will be by reviewing today’s investigation. We have not yet decided on when we will summon the victim. We will also decide if we will summon Park Si Hoo again after carefully looking things over.” When asked on if a sexual assault occurred, the police chief responded, “I cannot reveal that right now. We just finished our preliminary investigation.”

The March 1st broadcast of ‘Section TV’ featured G-Dragon working on the set of filming for the cosmetics company, The Saem. During the interview, G-Dragon was asked, “How do you feel when you see new groups debut?” to which he responded, “I see a lot of hoobaes lately who are young and very good, and all I can do is keep saying ‘ah~’ in awe.” He also alluded to that he’s getting older as he stated, “When we have a Big Bang tour, around the middle of the tour I get really tired. I have to work out.”
When asked which junior group caught his eye the most, G-Dragon stated, “Whenever I see SHINee, I think they’re doing really well.”
The reporter continued, “If you had the opportunity, would you collaborate with them?” G-Dragon playfully replied, “There are barely enough parts for our own members. I think they’d be upset with me,” making the reporter laugh.

Korean-American R&B and hip hop group Aziatix recently made headlines across both Korea and the US after signing with American label Cash Money Records. After introducing themselves at the ‘Pre-Grammy Party’ earlier this month, the talented trio sat down for an interview with Korean press and opened up about their upcoming debut in the US.
Aziatix is comprised of three Korean-American members: Eddie Shin ( 27), Flowsik (28) and Nicky Lee (33).
Flowsik shared how his group is differentiating themselves in the American music market, stating, “To Koreans, it sounds like pop music, but in the US, it has an Asian feel. We often hear that we have our own color and that our sound is new and unique.”
Jae Chong, a former member of R&B group Solid and producer for the group revealed, “American music is becoming saturated, and we can’t enjoy much of it. On the other hand, Aziatix’ music is refreshing. I think their music, which has both rhythm and melody, can be the step towards returning to that kind of music. Another strong point of the group is that it has both vocalists and rappers.”
Eddie Shin recognized the power of the internet, sharing, “There is no market that is not important these days. It has become a globalized market where you can reach the world through the internet. Even if we release an album in Seoul, we would immediately get comments from Peru. When we released our debut album in March of 2011, we got contacted by a radio station in Germany, and they requested if they could play our music.”
Nicky Lee also shared, “The Eagles weren’t formed through an audition. They met fellow musicians in the neighborhood or in the school by chance. We are like that as well. It is hard to repeat an event which happened by fate through a formula. There are markets in which it works and markets where it doesn’t. In the US, it doesn’t work that way. That is why you need creativity. Even if you mimic and fake a little bit, the consumers can tell.”
Nicky Lee first met Jae Chong when he was 17 years old in LA, and they’ve released five albums together in Taiwan. Flowsik was born and raised in NY and shares his personal stories through rap music. He revealed that honesty is the biggest appeal of his rap. He even introduced Seo Taji & Boys‘ rap music to his American friends, who then fell in love with Korean hip hop. Eddie Shin, born in Boston, graduated from NYU as a music major and became a singer-songwriter.
Aziatix will unveil their debut US single this March or April.
