Hyelim and Park Jimin Show Us How Close JYP Artists Are

Wonder Girls’ member Hyelim and Park Jimin of 15& showed off their close friendship recently with a cheeky kiss. 

The two of them recently recorded a video for the upcoming program “K-pop Star 5,” greeting their fans with a smile. The video was published on SBS‘ official Facebook page.


When asked to name some of JYP Entertainment’s strong points, the two of them answer without hesitating. “JYP artists are all friendly with each other,” Park Jimin says. To prove her point, Hyelim gives her a quick peck on the cheek. 

“Because he’s still promoting as a singer, he understands our situation best,” Park Jimin also says about the company’s producer and president, Park Jin Young. “He treats us comfortably like friends and treats us to nice food. There are a lot of company dinners,” Hyelim adds. 

Park Jimin asks the camera, “Don’t you want to come to JYP?” before joking, “But I think I gained weight due to all the company dinners.” 

Hyelim and Park Jimin will guest judge on “K-pop Star 5,” which is scheduled to begin broadcasting on November 22.

Lee Hi′s Older Sister Turns Heads on ′K-Pop Star 5′

Lee Hi′s older sister′s appearance on K-Pop Star 5 is attracting attention. 

Some of the upcoming season′s contestants were revealed on the November 15 broadcast of SBS′ K-Pop Star 5.


One contestant turned heads when she revealed that she′s the older sister of a well-known singer. That singer turned out to be season one′s Lee Hi, and Yang Hyun Suk, the CEO of Lee Hi′s agency YG, appeared shocked, saying "I didn′t know either."

Meanwhile, Yang Hyun Suk, Park Jin Young and Yoo Hee Yeol have returned as judges for the fifth season of K-Pop Star, which will also include a guest judging system of former K-Pop Star contestants. The first episode will air on November 22.


Former Contestant Brody and Lee Hi’s Older Sister to Appear on “K-Pop Star 5″

It’s time to get excited for another season of SBS’ audition survival show “K-Pop Star.”

On November 15, SBS aired a prologue episode of the upcoming fifth season to give viewers a little taste of what’s to come.


Viewers were particularly surprised to see former contestant Brody, who was one of Yang Hyun Suk’s most cherished trainees on season three, taking part in the audition show once again. The judges are happy to see her back on stage, and compliment her more mature appearance, “You have become a young lady.”

Maybe even more unexpected is the identity of one female contestant, who convinces the judges of her talent within seconds after starting to sing. Turns out that she is none other than the older sister of Lee Hi, the runner-up of “K-Pop Star 1.”

When the judges are informed of this, Yang Hyun Suk is just as shocked as everyone else and says, “Even I had no idea.”

Meanwhile, the first episode of “K-Pop Star 5″ is scheduled air on November 22.


Park Jin Young Exposes Yang Hyun Suk’s Extreme Mood Swings

Park Jin Young made fun of Yang Hyun Suk’s mood swings in a preview for “K-Pop Star 5.”

During the prologue of SBS’s “K-pop Star 5” aired on November 15, the show is reintroduced before the start of a new season.


When Yoo Hee Yeol is asked if he is unhappy with any aspects of the show, he says, “I’m not sure if Yang Hyun Suk is attending a comedy academy because it seems like he wants to branch out to variety shows.”

“He has intense mood swings. He doesn’t speak when he is tired or unhappy. While I’d be happy if he didn’t have any mood swings, they’re pretty bad,” Park Jin Young teases. “It’s because he’s gotten too successful.”

Yang Hyun Suk Says Big Bang is Bettter Than What Seo Taiji and Boys Was

Yang Hyun Suk compared Big Bang to Seo Taiji and Boys. 

During a production presentation for SBS′ K-Pop Star 5, held at SBS Hall in Seoul′s Mok-dong on November 16, Yang Hyun Suk said Big Bang is better than Seo Taiji and Boys.


Yang Hyun Suk said, "I don′t talk with the singers in my agency a lot or look deeply into them, but I hear what they like and are interested in a lot. When I listen to what they′re saying, I think that I′m learning." 

He continued, "To be honest, I did Seo Taiji and Boys, but Big Bang is so much better than what we were then. If possible, I don′t talk to them directly, but through Teddy and the producers, I hear what they′re thinking, what they like, and over time, I realize I′m following them. Because I′m in my 40s, it′s difficult for me to keep up with what teen are thinking. But as the CEO, beyond authoritarianism, I approach them through their hearts."

Meanwhile, YG′s Yang Hyun Suk, JYP′s Park Jin Young and Antenna Music′s Yoo Hee Yeol will be returning as the judges of K-Pop Star 5. In addition to these judges, six individuals from each agency will make up an 18-member guest judging committee. The first episode will air on November 22 at 6:10 p.m. KST.

Wow, this Lee Soo Chong girl is really good.  Looks like she's going to be one of the R&B queens of this season.  I'm surprised by how little back story and attention she got though.  Maybe they didn't film enough of her when she auditioned in the US?

I didn't really get why the judges gushed over the last guy.  He basically tried to sing like Taeyang.  

And after watching the D-day prologue episode, we learn that Brody still unfortunately can't sing two years later.  Although she's still as cute/pretty as ever.  

Overall, I felt a bit disappointed with the premiere episode.  There was more focus on the contestant's back stories, but maybe only one contestant's talent (Lee Soo Chong) stood out to me, and she didn't get a backstory.  The judges' opinions sound about the same as the previous 4 seasons. If the ratings for this sink the way Running Man's has been sinking, then it will be a bit sad.  I hope it'll get better in the next several episodes.  Kpop star has had a good run.  I wish they would debut Kwon Jin Ah, Katie Kim, and Jung Seung Hwan already.

Contestant Jung Jin Woo Wows All Judges with Self-Composed Song on “K-Pop Star”

Contestant Jung Jin Woo passes his audition after receiving many compliments from the judges.

On the November 22 broadcast of SBS’s “K-Pop Star,” contestant Jung Jin Woo sings his self-composed song, ‘Satellite.’ Jung Jin Woo had previously auditioned for the show back in the third season.


YG’s Yang Hyun Suk, JYP’s Park Jin Young, and Antenna’s Yoo Hee Yeol all press the “pass” button even before the song has ended.

Yang Hyun Suk says, “This is the artist that will be able to follow the footsteps of Zion.T and Hyukoh.” Yoo Hee Yeol also says, “Sign a contract with me.” Finally, Park Jin Young says, “You wrote the melody of the song well. This type of melody will be very popular. There is nothing to teach or fix about your singing.”

Yoo Hee Yeol is bothered by the moaning noises J.Y. Park makes on 'K-Pop Star'

The November 23 airing of 'Healing Camp' had viewers chortling thanks to Yoo Hee Yeol's sassy, brutally honest remarks about his 'K-Pop Star' fellow judge J.Y. Park. 

Yoo Hee Yeol, along with Yang Hyun Suk, guested on this episode to air out some dirty laundry about their friend J.Y. Park, who apparently has some weird mannerisms and habits that grind their gears. Yang Hyun Suk said, "There are times when the viewers get annoyed watching J.Y. Park on the show. When they just look at his face, they know whether a contestant is going to pass or be eliminated," which had Yoo Hee Yeol laughing in agreement. He then added his own two cents, saying, "If there is a contestant he even likes a little bit, he starts making moaning noises. It's very uncomfortable." 


Yoo Hee Yeol continued, "There was a famous line that [J.Y. Park] said on the show that went 'half air half noise' but nowadays he says, 'open your diaphragm' and 'your heart is also a muscle.' I have no idea what he means; it's not like he's a doctor." 

But wait! His dissing didn't end there. When asked what he would do if J.Y. Park was one of the contestants, Yoo Hee Yeol joked, "I think I will eliminate him based on his physical appearance. I would assume that he's trying out to be a dancer." Hey, you gotta appreciate the guy's honesty. That's what friends are for, right?

Park Jin Young Reveals Yang Hyun Suk’s Secret

On the November 23 broadcast of SBS’s “Healing Camp,” singer and producer Park Jin Young appeared as the guest.

While sharing his opinions about the other judges on “K-Pop Star,” he opened up about YG Entertainment founder Yang Hyun Suk who appears on the show as one of the judges.


Park Jin Young cracked everyone up when he said, “I think Yang Hyun Suk does get a little competitive with other judges. He’s the only judge who comes to the studio with about five to six prepared comments. He picks out one of them when it’s appropriate.”

As for singer Yoo Hee Yeol who is also one of the judges, Park Jin Young commented, “He’s so kind. He gives advice to each and every contestant. Hyun Suk and Hee Yeol came up with a secret code. When one of them gets long-winded with their feedback, the other person touches his ear.”

Lee Hi's sister reveals why she decided to take her shot at fame on 'K-Pop Star 5'

The November 29 airing of SBS's 'K-Pop Star 5' drew the first preliminaries, and an unexpected contestant stepped on the stage. 

The contestant was none other than YG artist and 'K-Pop Star 1' runner-up Lee Hi's older sister Lee Hyu Rim! 


Lee Hyu Rim told the judges, "Lee Hi was second place on season 1 and became a star. Truthfully, I was envious. I couldn't help but feel that way," and brought up Lee Hi's past interview during which she admitted that she started music thanks to her older sister's influence. However much Lee Hi had meat that as a compliment, for Lee Hyu Rim, that particular statement was a burden. She said, "I felt the pressure that I have to do really well [on the program]. But if I don't gather the courage now, I think it'll continue to nag at my mind. So in the end, I gained the courage [to try out]," relaying her reason for deciding to appear on the fifth season of 'K-Pop Star' despite the pressure. 

Lee Hyu Rim went on to perform Yoo Mi Rae's "Goodbye Sadness, Hello Happiness," and managed to move onto the next round after earning the passing marks from Yang Hyun Suk and Yoo Hee Yeol.

Lee Hi’s Older Sister Auditions on “K-Pop Star 5″

Lee Hi‘s older sister, Lee Hyu Rim, auditioned to be a singer on the November 29 episode of SBS’s “K-Pop Star 5.”

Lee Hyu Rim auditioned on the same show that made her little sister a K-pop star, pursuing her own dream to be a singer, no matter how late. Lee Hyu Rim sang Yoon Mi Rae‘s “Goodbye Sadness, Hello Happiness,” showing some similiarity and some differences in singing style and tone with her sister.


*Spoiler ahead for the result of her audition.

Judge Yoo Heo Yeol commented how Lee Hyu Rim reminds him of his own older brother, who gave up his own dream in music to support the family and his little brother’s dream. He gave her a pass.

Park Jin Young pointed out that Lee Hyu Rim lack something special in her singing to make her stand out from other singers, giving her a no-pass.

Yang Hyun Suk, CEO of Lee Hi’s label, gave Lee Hyu Rim a pass, despite pointing out the same thing as Park Jin Young, but also saying that the older sister reached the high notes more comfortably than her little sister.

Lee Hyu Rim will be moving on to Round 2.

Yang Hyun Suk Shares His Thoughts About Lee Hi’s Sister’s Audition On “K-Pop Star”

YG Entertainment’s CEO, Yang Hyun Suk, held an interview in which he was asked about the audition of Lee Hi’s sister, Lee Hyu Rim. Lee Hyu Rim had auditioned on the same show her little sister auditioned for in the past, “K-Pop Star.”

The interviewer asked Yang Hyun Suk, “There has been a large issue recently over Lee Hi’s sister. People are saying that she got through the first round through her connections, not her talent.”


To this, Yang Hyun Suk responded, “I can understand how people can think that. It is true that I showed an extra interest toward Lee Hyu Rim because she was Lee Hi’s sister. It is also true that I felt that I could at least give Lee Hyu Rim one chance. However, at the second round, I will be judging her more harshly.

It is very possible that a contestant who does very well the first round can do poorly in the next round. Although it different for different judges, I personally try to look for good points in a contestant during the first round and then judge more harshly the second round.”

He continued, “All of the judges on the show are different. Park Jin Young finds the first impression very important. Therefore, he comes out to be harsher towards contestants during auditions. Yoo Hee Yeol finds the compassion and heart of contestants to be very important.

For me, I like to find something new and fresh. Although Lee Hyu Rim received more interest from me due to her connection to Lee Hi, she also received a lot of attention from the public.

After the broadcast, she was second top searched person on the internet. No matter how well you sing, if you cannot receive interest from the public, you will not be able to get far in the show.”

Judges Are Completely Blown Away by This “K-Pop Star 5″ Contestant

This young talent has just put on one of greatest performances in the show history of SBS’ “K-Pop Star.”

On the December 6 broadcast of the singing competition show, the 71 contestants who made the first cut moved on to the second round of auditions.


Hailing from New Jersey, contestant Yoo Jei stepped forward to give her take on Billy Joel‘s “New York State of Mind.” She explained what made her choose the track, “I really love New York. I wonder what it would be like to live somewhere as fancy.”

Barely seconds into the song, the judges were amazed by her excellent vocal control and slightly raspy, charismatic voice. Once she finished her performance, the entire audience burst into wild applause.

While all three judges were totally impressed by the 15-year-old’s talent, Park Jin Young went all out with his praises. He said, “I promise that I’m not being overly dramatic here. This was the best performance that I have seen during the past five years of ‘K-Pop Star.’”
