Popular actor Jang Geun Suk has spoken up about rumors claiming he would be joining the second season cast of tvn’s variety show “My Ear’s Candy.”
“I will not be appearing in the second season of ‘My Ear’s Candy’,” the actor clarified to the Korean press. A source from the show also added that it was never the show’s intention to have permanent cast members to begin with.
During the first season, which premiered last August, Jang Geun Seuk spent three months as a regular guest of the show, appearing alongside Ji Soo, Gong Myung, Seo Jang Hoon, Kyung Soo Jin, and Ahn Jae Hong. In addition, many of these celebrities’ friends and acquaintances made appearances as well.
Meanwhile, season two has been revealed to have an anonymity concept, where competitors will face off against one another while having no idea who their opponent is.
“My Ear’s Candy” picks up again on February 18.
The members of the rookie duo 1PUNCH have been revealed to have gone on separate ways.
It has been said that Punch would go on a solo career while ONE signs with YG Entertainment.
It was reported earlier that ONE has recently signed a contract with YG Entertainment and has already started his training with his new agency.
An entertainment insider reveals to media outlet Daily Sports, “YG Entertainment was really interested in ONE after his appearance on ‘Show Me the Money 4.’ They think that he has the skills to be one of the top rappers on the show and that he also has the looks of an idol. He still needs to improve, but he is a real gem. He is currently undergoing training, so there is no schedule for an album release yet.”
YG Entertainment confirms the news and reveals, “It is true that we have signed a contract with ONE.”
Meanwhile, according to Brave Entertainment, 1PUNCH’s management agency, “1PUNCH has now disbanded practically.”
“Punch would still be performing under 1PUNCH’s name even though ONE has moved to a new management agency. Currently, Punch is preparing for a comeback,” Brave Entertainment further reveals.
Meanwhile, 1Punch has debuted earlier this year with the song “Turn Me Back.” The rookie duo was a special collaboration with Brave Entertainment and D-Business Entertainment. The duo’s concept was to recreate the 90s hip-hop tunes.
