RIP Ladies Code EunB and RiSe

Korean celebrities have been involved in traffic accidents far too often, a few of them had close shave in the past few years, and sadly these two girls have suffered the worst.

A few of the incidents might be pure (bad) luck, but human faults played huge parts in most – hectic schedule, overworked staff/driver, inconsiderate corporate culture, and the lack of safety awareness etc. Hope this tragedy could serve as a wakeup call for all parties.

Rest in peace EunB and RiSe. Condolences to the families and friends.

EXILE – New Horizon music video

Japanese music video for New Horizon, released in July 2014 by EXILE, a popular Japanese pop group. Just an OK song, the video is beautiful though.

The boy band was formed in 2001. About half of the 19 members are in their 30’s (the eldest is 45), but the group will continue to bring in new blood to keep them running like a franchise. As a matter of fact, this is the first (official) single featuring five new members.
