As you may have noticed…We have not been posting many profiles lately. Manwon^^ and I have recently come to realize that our journeys in Korea are coming to an end, and we are quite devastated about that. Because of that Manwon^^ especially has decided that for the next 2~3 months she wants to make the most of her time here in Korea. I still have about 6months left on my journey so I am trying to help her out by keeping our existing profiles as up-to-date as possible. I typically only work on the site on week nights from 8pm~10:30pm KST and some Sundays from around the same time though I do check Melon, Youtube and Facebook multiple times throughout the day. Once Manwon^^ returns to her home in the US and gets settled in, she will begin uploading profiles again and I am keeping a list of debuting groups for her when she returns. We are not looking for any additional help, and we will start posting new profiles again in a little while. We appreciate your patience.
Congratulations to our winners of the summer header contest. We got so many great entries that we couldn’t just choose one, so this summer to help you stay cool during the crazy hot months of June, July and August we have this super refreshing design. And later in the summer we will switch to our second winner. We have contacted both winners and once we hear back from them we will update this post to give them proper credit. XD
Our current Summer header was made by Sara. So please give her a great big Yoon Ji Seong round of applause. (yay Produce 101 refference)
Our second header, which will be up later, was created by nctanist. Are you curious about the design?
If you didn’t win, don’t worry we will have another contest sometime in the future. Thank you to everyone who participated!!!!!!!
~With love the Gurus
We are aware of the final outcome for Produce 101. (I watched every single second of that program, I’m completely obsessed with it.) We will be making an official profile for Wanna One just as we did for I.O.I but it will take us some time. Please be patient and we will get to it when we get to it.
We will also be updating profiles for groups that either have a member on hiatus due to being in the final line-up or groups like N.Flying that have added members that were contestants on the program.
At this time we will not be making profiles for the companies that have showcased a handful of trainees and have now made instagrams for those trainees to use, such as HF Music company, RBW, Yuehua etc.
Requests are closed. (This includes any debuting or upcoming group or artist)
Manwon^^, Katie And James are still following what is going on in the K-pop world, but as we have said our lives outside of the website come first. We have a list a mile-long of various things to do on the site, and things will get done when we can get them done. Please be patient and if you do not see a profile or updates on something, please give us time to update and do everything. We cannot and will not spend spend all of our time on the site, we need balance and sanity and we cannot get that if we only work, update, eat and sleep.
We do try and update a little each day. To see what we update each day follow us on FB or Twitter, however please be patient if something has not been updated, we will get to it as soon as we can.
It has been brought to our attention by a kpop114er here that the group BYT is not in fact a group, but a total scam please read the below statement regarding this issue:
“BYT does not exist, they are a catfish scam group! They have been stealing photos from the dance group MOi and their mini album “hi love me” has ripped off other groups, the track list:
01. I Want Your Love (It’s really “It’s You” by SIDA/ICIA)
02. Hello (It’s really “Hello” by HADY)
After the allegations began, BYT privated all videos regarding the mini album. The individual profiles are fake too, from what I understand, they’re stealing from the MOi member’s IG’s. BYT as a whole is a fake and doesn’t really exist, they may not even be under Frientree, we’re not sure.
https://www.facebook.com/lovelymoigirls – Here’s the official Facebook of MOi. We’ve gotten in touch with ICIA and we’re preparing to contact MOi now. – Tyler”
We are very thankful that this has been caught – and we have taken down this profile as well. Please go support ICIA, HADY, and MOI the groups who deserve the credit for everything they have done!
And a special thank you to Tyler for catching all of this and bringing it to our attention! We truly appreciate it!
