ARKPodcast - Episode 16: John Travolta Wannabe


2PM & 2NE1′s comeback in the same week, and more serious news for fans of YG family took precedence. Unfortunately, the free talk in this episode is quite serious and weighty. We also apologize for being late this week, but there was a typhoon in Manila that made recording on our usual day quite difficult.

  • After School to debut in Japan next month with “Bang.” and will also promote as two rumoured subgroups: After School Originals and Violet Girls.

  • 2PM returns with Hands Up and we saw that it was good
  • Girl band Wine Hall Venus (whatever that means) to debut soon. They play musical instruments and are talented at horseback riding.

  • Crown J gets slapped with a restraining order after the alleged assault of his former manager
  • Shin Sekyung and Jonghyun of Shinee are dunzo, which I’m sure irrationally pleases some fans.

Freetalk is a bit heavy again. This past week the police released a report stating that their conclusion is that Kang Daesung is responsibly for the death of Motorcyclist Hyun. Now of course, he still hasn’t been charged with any crime and it is possible that he will never have to serve jail time. However, this event will undoubtedly have a harsh effect on his mental state, and has already begun to. He’s been suspended from all of Big Bang’s activities until the end of the year, and we’re left to wait and see how Big Bang will be affected as a result.

Opening Song: Block B – Tell Them
Insert Song: Thelma Aoyama feat. 4Minute – Without U
Closing Song: Daesung – Baby Don’t Cry
