BTS, TWICE and BLACKPINK Hit with Copyright Strikes on YouTube
Some company called Aiplex has claimed ownership over BTS, Twice, and Blackpink videos which took them off YouTube for a few hours. For YouTube, anyone can make a copyright claim and get videos taken down (if you can prove some sort of ownership like you posted the vid first or something) which is notoriously a horrible system. Top girl group TWICE experienced a temporary shutdown of three music videos: “Likey” is the fifth most-viewed music video by a girl group of all time. “Like Ooh-Ahh” was the nonet’s debut single that currently sits at 280 million views. Meanwhile, their latest single “YES or YES” became the seventh-biggest 24-hour debut on YouTube at the time of its release. Jennie’s “SOLO,” PSY’s “New Face” and BIGBANG’s “Flower Road” and BLACKPINK "DU-DDU-DU-DDU" were missing from YG's channels. And V's Singularity was also taken down :( Luckily now all the videos are back up and the views are restored (though at first they were playing really low quality because they had to render again...) JYP's response: “As soon as we found out the problem, we shared it with YouTube and solved it,” a representative from JYP Entertainment told Forbes. “We believed making the videos live again is the most crucial part, so we tried our best to make [them reappear] as soon as possible. While YouTube is still finding out the cause of this problem, it is good news at least that the videos are back right away.” YG, BigHit and Aiplex have not made a comment yet, it seems.
Songs Where The Title Is A Play On Words (Or Has Meanings You Might Have Missed)
Mostly Kpop songs but there is one other song in a different genre. (I apologize for the change in fonts, I don’t have a Hangul keyboard on my laptop so I copy and pasted the Hangul into the card which caused the fonts to become smaller.) Valkyrie (발키리) - ONEUS Play on Korean word 밝히리 (balkhiri) which means Shine, it sounds like Valkyrie. Though they do also say the word valkyrie in English the song just once. G.R.8.U (대.다.나.다.너) - VIXX The korean title translates to 'You're Impressive' but they used the slang word in Korean (대.다.나.다.너)(dae.da.na.da.neo=the shortened version of the formal saying 'You're impressive.' I could not find the formal spelling to show you guys). The same goes for the English title, 'G.R.8.U' is also a slang spelling for 'Great You.' 1004 (Angel) - B.A.P The Korean word for 'Angel' sounds and is spelled exactly like the Korean word for '1004.' (천사=cheonsa/angel/1004.) A.D.T.O.Y (하.니.뿐.) - 2PM This one isn't really a play on words, more or less a shortened version of a phrase. In English it's just an acyronym for 'All Day I Think About You.' 하.니.뿐. (broken down below) is a shortened version of 하루 종일 니 생각뿐이야 (halu jong-il ni saeng-gagppun-iya.=I think of you all day.) 하.니.뿐 = Ha.Ni.PPun, which is the shortened version of HAlu jong-il NI saeng-gagPPUN-iya. HookGA (Hook가) - HIGH4:20 May seem like it's supposed to be Hookah, but apparently according to member Alex it's HookGA (GA as in 가) which means in Alex's words 'Go to the Hook (of the song)' or 'bring the hook.' If you look up the meaning to 'bring the hook' (후크를 가지고) the roman form is 'hukeuleul gajigo' which could mean they also did a shortening thing by taking out the hukeuleul jigo part and had the English word for 'Hook' and kept the GA (가) part still holding the meaning of 'bring the hook.' But I mean their unit name High4:20 still... HALA HALA - Ateez Just an acyronym for Hearts Awakened Live Alive. Though those words are never said in the song. Only HALA HALA is used. La Vie En Rose - IZ*ONE 'La Vie En Rose' is a metaphor in French for seeing live through a rosy pair of glasses, in a sense of utmost joy and state of bliss. Or in other words 'a state of mind where everything looks and seems happy and joyful around you (rosy) when you are in love.' (Source) DKDK (두근두근) - Fromis_9 DKDK an acronym of sorts for the Korean onomatopoeia of a heartbeat (두근두근=dugeundugeun (swap the g's out for k's and shorten it and you got DKDK.)) %% (Eung Eung) - APINK %% is a play on the Korean Hangul for 'Eung Eung' which looks like a percent sign when tilted to the side a bit: 응응 looks the same as %%. The name is also homage to the internet slang in Korea which is ㅇㅇ, which is a kind of a way to you could say "ok" or "got it." ㅇㅇ is the shortened version of 응응. Korea loves to shorten phrases or words if you haven't noticed! JamCome On Baby (잠깐만 Baby) - Yoon Mirae (Korean Version) (English Version) The English Title is called JamCome On Baby but the Korean title is 잠깐만 Baby (Hold Up Baby.) 잠깐만 sounds like JamCome On (jamkkanman.) All I Need - Ninety One (Non-Korean Group) Play on the Kazah word Дегенмен ол айнды (Degenmen ol aynïdı=however, she feels repelled) the ол айнды (ol aynïdı) sounds like the Enlish words 'All I Need.' Any songs I missed?
Minzy Opens Up About Depression, Suicidal Thoughts & Leaving 2NE1
This was a really powerful read and shows what so many young idols are going through right now :( See the link above for the full thing but here are some quotes: ...but the star notes that four years of waiting for her professional life to start at age 15 stunted her personal growth and social skills. "I didn't know how to have relationships with people," she reflects. "Since I was so young in such a controlled environment, I never learned how to socialize. I really didn't have a normal childhood -- I never went out to play with other kids. I was just training and everyone was older than me." "People, netizens were critiquing the fact that, you know, we were not the prettiest group," she says. "We were the 'ugly group.' I didn't know how to process that, I held that in. It was tough. [As a group], we pretended it was not a big deal and tried to forget about it, but you can't forget about it -- it's tough. I was trying to keep up with the other girls in the group in terms of maturity, but when you're up against these girl groups who look like models and you're doing something different -- cool, but different -- you deal in a different way." "I would go on stage and everyone was so supportive, they'd love me," she says. "Then when the stage was done, I would be in the hotel feeling so empty. Life felt like just a stage. I didn't know what was my life about; I wasn't sure if life was better as a performer or if life would be better just alone. It was such a contrast, but I never had the time to figure out how to balance both being on stage and being alone." Minzy fighting! If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, you can call a suicide hotline and find resources in your country here
