Following David Tao and Shin’s concert cancellation in Penang over the weekend, Galaxy Group has announced that Wakin Chau (周华健)’s concert will also be cancelled.

The issue of this sudden cancellation is apparently due to some embezzlement within concert organiser WGM Entertainment. As you may know, Wakin was scheduled to perform in Penang on 23rd November.

Wakin Chau

During an interview with China Daily, Wakin’s agent shared that they’ve been on good terms with Galaxy Group for the past 10 years. Although the Taiwanese singer and team have contacted Galaxy Group, a solution has yet to announced.

Dream Factory Entertainment, who manages David Tao and Shin, explained that the duo couldn’t perform on Saturday because they weren’t paid. “Just when the singers were preparing to leave the hotel for the concert venue, the organiser suddenly announced the concert had been cancelled,” Dream Factory Entertainment director Elyn Tan said.

According to The Star, a lawyer who was entrusted with the funds had allegedly gone missing after he was paid RM6.8 million for the concert. Word on the street has it that the lawyer has since fled to China.

To compensate fans who bought the tickets and supported David Tao and Shin all this while, the artists have decided to hold a free concert to repay them. The relevant details will be announced soon,” said Dream Factory Entertainment.

In the meantime, those who have purchased Wakin Chau’s concert tickets can make their respective refunds once the organiser announces the refund method.

The haze situation in Malaysia seems to be going from bad to worse lately.

In our previous post, we have discussed about the ongoing issue involving the current condition in our country, which grows to be more concerning as each day passes.

The government, among other citizens nationwide have come out with methods on how to handle the ongoing haze – including the usual tips on wearing mask, drink a lot of water etc.

Apart from that, there are also a few locals out there who suggested extreme measures in order to “chase” the haze go away. Take a look at these 4 weird and funny suggestions that we can’t help but shake our heads:

1. Using a pan & ice to “melt” the air particles

The ritual was popularised by Datuk Ibrahim Mat Zain – known among locals as “Raja Bomoh”. His way of uttering the word “jelebu” instead of the word “jerebu” (Malay word for haze) has also became a meme among netizens. The ritual is done by putting a block of ice onto a pan so that the air particles that contain the haze can melt.

2. Using a vase to Suck in the haze

Also made famous by the “Raja Bomoh” himself. In this case, he claimed that his ‘special’ vase has the ability to suck all haze so that Malaysians will be able to breathe a cleaner air.

3. Blowing the haze away

Known among local Twitter users as a resident prankster, Faizal Rosly (username @ijaicool) recently shared with his followers one of his brilliant method to blow the haze out from Malaysia. By using what? – A toy fan!

4. Dancing ritual to make the haze go away

Another hilarious method that we’ve came across online is a weird ritual that involves dancing. Some netizens have even asked if the “dancers” were possessed during filming.

Do you have any more to add in the list? Share with us in the comments.😄

“Joker” hasn’t even hit theatres yet, but there is already buzz about a potential sequel.

During a recent interview, Todd Phillips revealed that both he and Joaquin Phoenix have already discussed ideas for a potential follow-up while they were shooting the DC film.

Source: Warner Bros

Well, I don’t think we’re gonna make a second one. That’s just not in our plans. But for fun, have me and Joaquin bounced around ideas? We were doing it when we were shooting, because that’s what you do sometimes,” the director was quoted as saying.

Never say never right? Phoenix previously turned down the opportunity of joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Doctor Strange because he didn’t want to be tied up in a multi-picture contract. Even getting the 44-year-old actor onboard for this project took a whole lot of convincing.

On whether they would collaborate again in the future, Phillips commented, “I would do anything with Joaquin, any day of the week. There’s nobody like him. If he was willing to do it, and if people show up to this movie, and Warners came to us and said, ‘You know what? If you guys could think of something…’ Well, I have a feeling that he and I could think of something pretty cool.”

He later clarified his quote during a Los Angeles screening, saying, “The quote was, ‘I will do anything Joaquin wants to do’. And I would. But the movie’s not set up to (have) a sequel. We always pitched it as one movie, and that’s it.”

Word has it that BLACKPINK (블랙핑크) could be one of the contenders for Best New Artiste at the annual Grammy Awards next year.

Billboard recently mentioned in their write-up that the “As If It’s Your Last” singers will most likely be competing with other international acts including Lizzo, Billie Ellish and also Lil Nas X to name a few.

In their article entitled “Grammy Preview: Will Pop Make A Comeback In The Big 4 Categories?”, the famed music critics site have come out with their opinions on what’s most likely to expect for the award ceremony.

During their take on the coveted “Best New Artiste” category, Billboard commented about the girl group’s “unprecedented commercial inroads as a K-pop girl group in America.” The 4-member band – Jennie, Jisoo, Rose and Lisa – have made various appearances during their promotional cycle in the US, including performing at Coachella, international world tours and even appearing in “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”.

BLINKs (BLACKPINK fans) all over the world are celebrating the “news” by tweeting about how the quartet has set a new wave of revolution for other K-Pop acts out there. Sadly, some also took it to the extreme way by throwing unnecessary shade to other groups such as BTS.

If this were to come true, then it will be the perfect opportunity for not only BLACKPINK, but also for other K-Pop acts to expand their career in Hollywood. Just like BTS, who paved the way for Korean pop groups to promote their music in the US, our favourite girls have also been been making their mark internationally.

For those who might not know, the 7-member boy band was nominated for “Best Recording Package” in this year’s ceremony for their “Love Yourself: TEAR” album – becoming the 1st act from South Korea to receive such honour.

Now that “Arthdal Chronicles” (아스달 연대기) has just aired its last and final episode on tvN and Netflix, fans are already looking forward for more.

As you may know the K-drama was divided into 3 parts (6 episodes each) – “Part 1: Children of Prophecy”, “Part 2: Turning Sky, Rising Ground”, and “Part 3: Arth, The Prelude to All Legends”. Now what?

Source: tvN

Many viewers felt that the finale of “Part 3: Arth, The Prelude to All Legends” had an open-ending conclusion that never really tied the plots together. This suggests that there is still quite a bit of story left in “Arthdal Chronicles”.

After the 18th and final episode, the message “the legend of Arth will continue again” was plastered on the screen. Fans complained that they were waiting for a bigger confrontation that never took place. Instead, a 2-minute animated short video was released – showing an epic battle scene between the main characters.

Whether a season 2 is guaranteed or not is still up for debate. But an insider has released a statement saying, “From its inception, ‘Arthdal Chronicles’ was planned out as a drama with many seasons. The staff would definitely like to move forward with a 2nd season. The end credits clip in episode 18 reflected that desire.”

However, a second season is not possible just with the desire of the staff, there must also be support from viewers. We will look over various factors and make a final decision soon. We will do our best so that we can move ahead with a second season,” the source added.

In conjunction with the season finale, the main cast of Song Joong Ki, Jang Dong Gun, Kim Ji Won, and Kim Ok Bin took some time to reflect on their roles and thank viewers for their support throughout the duration of the show.

Jang Dong Gun on playing Ta Gon: “The character Ta Gon was very different from the roles I’ve taken so far, so there were many difficulties, but I did my best to work hard. It’s hard to believe that ‘Arthdal Chronicles’ is over. It was an honour to participate in a great work with good people, and I had a great time.”

Song Joong Ki on portraying both Saya and Eun Seom: “Although there were some difficulties in playing a double role for the first time, it was fun. I was greedier than ever because the vast and deep story was so fascinating.” 

Kim Ji Won, who played Tanya, said: “It feels surreal (that the drama has come to an end) when I remember the many hours that we spent filming with ups and downs for more than eight months. It was a great honour to work with great actors, writers, and director. Just as characters change as they learn over time, ‘Arthdal Chronicles’ was a drama that gave me new experiences and lessons. I want to thank the viewers for waiting so long and for being with us.”

Kim Ok Bin reflected on her experience on set, sharing, “I was very attached to all of the staff, including the director, writers, and actors. We worked hard together, so it feels both sad and bittersweet that I won’t be able to see them anymore. I really want to say thank you to the viewers for their support and love over a long period of time.”

However, not all are happy with the finished product though. In this case, some fans pointed out that the dolls appears to be too creepy and disturbing in their facial expression. In addition, some also said that the figures doesn’t look like the BTS members at all. Instead, they compared the faces to scary characters in movies such as “Annabelle” and also “Chucky”, implying that the dolls will ‘attack’ them in their sleep.

Others also expressed their disappointment on the price of these items. For those who might not know, the price for each member is worth RM104.90! Some netizens felt that the price is too expensive and it will be a waste of money to spend for a non-talking K-Pop idol.

Check out some of their comments below:

Despite the negative remarks, we believe that a few loyal BTS stans are willing enough to spend for their favourite K-Pop idols.

Today’s shoppers have demonstrate a growing need for a contemporary and vibrant shopping experience. To achieve this vision, Avenue K introduced the idea of narrating stories through a dedicated space that will captivate and capture the hearts and imagination of every shopper,” said Ms Phang Sze Sze, General Manager of Avenue K.

She continued, “The opening of Stories marks yet another milestone for Avenue K as this is the first ever initiative spearheaded by us to unleash possibilities yet to be explored through tales of exciting discoveries. In an effort to go local while growing global, we begin the first chapter of Stories by dedicating this space to empowering local talents through fashion.”

Located at Lot M-1, Mezzanine Floor (formerly occupied by Muji), here are the 10 designers to check out:
