We’ve had a lot of quick updates on the site recently. Hi all it’s Manwon^^
As James explained earlier I was on a pretty long hiatus from the site (and at one point had decided not to return), but recently I went on vacation to visit Korea again after having left months ago, and after meeting with James again and finally getting to a good place with my homesickness of Korea I am returning to the site. I talked to James about starting up my duties on the site again and of course she welcomed me back. I am also so impressed with all the work she’s put in in keeping the site running! She is amazing ~
Anyways, I’m just happy to be back and happy to be able to rediscover my love of k-pop without it making me miss Korea (seriously kpopinfo114ers it felt like I was breaking up with Korea and k-pop when I moved back to my home country). But now I’m ready to get back at it again and the heartbreak is gone. Just wanted to say “HI” and let you all know I’m back so you may be reading comments back from me too now.
Please keep in mind that while I am back, James is still on vacation herself, and so comebacks won’t be updated until she is back from her vacation. She has definitely deserved her free time!
Dear Viewers ~
I just want to let everyone know that as of today I will not be updating anything for a few weeks. Throughout February I will be doing a lot of traveling so I will not have time update. I will be checking youtube and melon to keep up with who debuts and come back but I will not be updating any pages. Please do not tell me that a group came back. Wait until after I post the next bi-weekly update. I will try to respond to comments when I can but no guarantees.
The spring header contest is still going on, so keep sending in your submissions.
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.
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!
