In episode three we delve into the news of the week.
We also talk about several big name producers in Mainstream Kpop: E-Tribe, Shinsadong Tiger and Brave Brothers and we pose the following question. What does an artist have to do wrong (morally, ethically or legally) that would cause you to lose faith in an artist and stop supporting them?
The news covers:
- 4minute’s comeback teasers and Cube’s “Boobs!” philosophy, G.NA’s vs. JiHyun’s. Images
- Big Bang’s upcoming 4.5 repackage album with 4 new songs
- JYJ’s JaeJoong preparing for the Thailand leg of their tour
- JYJ’s Yoochun preparing for the filming of Goodbye Miss Ripley
- SS501’s Hyun Joong preparing for a solo album
- Bran New Kiss
- Longest Lasting Legendary Idol Group Shinhwa celebrates their thirteenth anniversary.
- Heechul rants about his face scar, I laugh at his misery. He’s forgiven because he’s Heechul.
- Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism spearheads a meeting with major Entertainment companies to discuss making trainee life better.

The Background music is of course from E-Tribe (two guys), Shinsadong Tiger (1 guy) and Cube’s resident producer, Brave Brothers (one guy), YGE’s former producer.
E-Tribe – Mother
Shinsadong Tiger – B2ST’s Soom
Brave Brothers – Invisible
Some of his first songs produced while he was under YG for other artists
Battle (now defunct, sorta) – Step by Step
Son Dambi ft. a predebut Park Gahee – Bad Boy
And his last major hit for YGE, Big Bang – Last Farewell
Now you can see everybody’s argument about style vs. laziness when it came to him. Please forgive Noelle for using Gee at the top of this episode, I guess she couldn’t resist.
We mostly discuss Hyori’s plagiarism issue and Chris Brown for our Free Talk segment.
Until next week.
