- Super Junior′s Eunhyuk Makes An Album Sales Promise and It Involves...Home Shopping?
- 2017.11.08 04:27
- On November 6th, Super Junior held a press conference at the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas to celebrate the release of their 8th album “Play.” While in front of the conference, Eunhyuk took the chance to make a declaration. "A lot of people have given so much love to this album. I want to make a promise for if we should sell more than 300,000 albums.” He continued, “We’ll wear black suits and then we’ll sell suits on a home shopping network.” He then proceeded to knock on the table because once Eunhyuk makes a proclamation it is done…until the other members have something to say. Check the full video of Eunhyuk’s proclamation below. Eunhyuk also demonstrated the point choreography of “Black Suit.” Much like their iconic dances from MV’s like “Sorry, Sorry,” they’ve made a super catchy, yet deceptively simple hook choreo for fans to follow and emulate. So, if you’re planning on taking this song to the noraebang, here’s your chance to learn from the best. At the time of writing this article, “Black Suit” has received over 3 million views on YouTube and hit the #1 spot on 21 iTunes albums charts worldwide since being published on November 6, 2017.

- Monsta X Makes a Straight-up Sexy Meokbang Pledge
- 2017.11.07 15:30
- Monsta X celebrated the release of their 5th mini album “The Code” with a “COMEBACK SHOW-CON” where they treated fans to a live demo of their new “straight up sexy” concept, as well as the promise of a meokbang guaranteed to be must-watch, laptop television. Shownu wasted no time in doing a live demo of “Dramarama’s” three point-dances, which we can safely call a shimkung trifecta. The trio of moves including a step-by-step dance which saw the band’s leader wind himself down to the floor, from finger to toe, followed by a sexy “hide and go seek” move, and finally a shoulder brush dance that may just give you flashback vibes to another quintessential Monsta X shoulder move—“All In’s” behind-view shoulder rolls. But, as fans of “Lipstick Prince” know, when you ask Shownu to dance, only good things can happen. Exhibit A: “Dramarama’s” point dances in the clip above. Exhibit B: Shownu and the magnificent sword dance in the clip below. Later, Monsta X entered a serious discussion—how would they celebrate if everyone in the group remained un-injured through this promotion cycle? After input from everyone from Shownu to Hyungwon, the group decided on the following pledge, “If no one gets hurt, we will do a meokbang. We will release a video of a “straight-up sexy” “meat meokbang.”Let the video below serve as evidence of this promise. Monsta X’s Wonho was absent from the “COMEBACK SHOW-CON” after being diagnosed with a severe flu according to the band′s management, Starship Entertainment. He is expected to re-join promotions with the group from the Nov. 9 episode of “M COUNTDOWN.” At the time of publishing this article, Monsta X’s “Dramarama” has exceeded 1.5M YouTube views within one day of release. Check out Monsta X’s first performance of “Dramarama” below at their COMEBACK SHOW-CON! Want the opportunity to see Monsta X live? We′re pumped to announce that they will be appearing on "MEET&GREET" soon, so don′t forget to get your album now on Mwave′s official K-Pop Goods page.
- Seolhyun Shows Her Casual, Winter Look in New Instagram Slideshow
- 2017.11.06 05:00
- Over the weekend, singer and actress Seolhyun shared a new slideshow on her Instagram that may cause you to get those “winter is coming” vibes—not of the “Game of Thrones” variety, but the “chestnuts roasting by an open fire” type. Seolhyun, who donned a white puffer jacket looked like what you might imagine the perfect winter day to be like—sitting inside away from the cold, warming your heart and hands with a hot drink, and smiling because you are most definitely not outside in the cold. But, if you’re not the type to have your heart warmed by the power of hot beverages alone, we dare you not be melted by her warm, sincere smile.

- Since September 13 through September 25, Mwave held the Fan Theories Event leading up to BTS′ comeback with DNA. We were able to see how much fans cherished and enjoyed BTS′ concept and AU. Thanks to the many participants, entries will be revealed through a series of 3 articles. Through this article, check out the text entries based on the Comeback Trailer ′Serendipity′ and theories combined with other works.

Comeback Trailer : SerendipitySunny https://twitter.com/jhopepdnim/status/904732840268402689 “Why does it feel like #Serendipity is a letter to Armys?” Ma Isabel Belleza Cuizon https://twitter.com/endlessjimin/status/907950376002904064 “DNA has a big role for Calico cats” babyjoonJimin WINGS Trailer X Serendipity http://my.w.tt/UiNb/HgFT9svVrG #HER eemiinn https://twitter.com/noironyaside/status/906880705644322817 Keishay D Crawford The Pied Piper and Serendipity The track list that BTS recently released includes a song called the Pied Piper. The Pied Piper is a German Rat-Catcher who dressed up in multiple colors. His job was to lure rats away with a magic pipe. Eventually he got mad that the townspeople weren′t paying him for his services. He then began to use the pipe on the children of the town to lure them away from their homes. The rats and children are the same. The lyrics of Serendipity mention 난 네 삼색고양이 (I′m your calico cat). A calico cat is a cat with 3 colors. Cats are known to chase rats. So as Jimin sings "I′m your calico cat", he is referring to the multicolored rat-catcher, the Pied Piper. Jimin and the Pied Piper are the same. Ultimately the Pied Piper uses his pipe to tempt kids to leave home and come to him. I′m reminded of the lyrics of Intro: Boy Meets Evil. These lyrics suggest that love is luring J-Hope away from his dream and tempting him. He is being lured to invisible things (the sound of the pipe). He later realized that this sound was bad and dark (Boy Meets Evil). Theories Combined with Other Worksmina BTS concept photos X Koe no Katachi X The girl who leapt through time https://twitter.com/yoonjiult/status/903917810102919170 “Both movies show how the character’s friendship bond remained strong all throughout despite being in a crisis of loving yourself” Angeline BTS X SEVENTH WHISTLERS THEORY https://twitter.com/vyenanorin/status/908358655333900289 I can′t think straight again😆 Ths is just my general opinion 😍💕 I have read those thousands of their theories. And they just give us to think free of imaginations, the important one is they lead us to read book to increase our knowledge. Giving us strength to face ourselves and the world in our life. Not giving up on our dreams, our life. Especially for many children, teenagers.. Even adults or elderly💙👍 their new album r for us not even A.R.M.Y 😘 THEIR NEW ALBUM ARE REPRESENT TO US. 8 <3😇 Keishay D Crawford My theory is that there is a correlation between BTS and the K-drama that V was in called Hwarang. Right before his death, V asked another character in the drama if he would still "walk with him". The character said yes and then shortly after that Vs character dies. A few months later, BTS released an album called "You Never Walk Alone. In the Blood Sweat and Tears MV, Taehyung jumps off of the balcony and dies. The YNWA album was to commemorate V’s death.

#DNACarlisle https://twitter.com/ferociousjimin/status/908228914194948097 About the title ‘DNA’ “In short, we ARMYs are the DNA of BTS. We form BTS. We complete BTS. We are, each of us, a little UNIVERSE to BTS” Highlight ReelWreckage Diaries_ https://twitter.com/wreckagediaries/status/897675034940104704 “Somehow, it made me think that the girls represented their deepest fears and hopes” Lisliane Pereira https://twitter.com/94hobi/status/898211345828651009 "The girls with the boys are NOT real, they are the representation of their pair" Espie SabanalHYYH X LOVE YOURSELF https://twitter.com/espiejeon/status/898892624060219394 “Seokjin has time travelled back two times” lix Post HYYH (or even WINGS) era. They separated ways after going back from the sea (except for Jimin & Hoseok). They meet these girls that they fell in love with? or start to have romantic feelings with? or got their attention that they wanted to know more about them. But the things that happened in their past holds them back from making a move (or just to getting to know the girls on a deeper level). Looking at the individual poster quotes, Namjoon, Seokjin, and Taehyung, want something (in their past?) to be fixed. Yoongi and Jimin seemed to have given up, firmly believing that they do not deserve to be loved because of what happened in their past. Hoseok and Jungkook just want to move on from their past, trying to learn to love themselves but then again their past acts as a hindrance to them. The demons of their past haunt them, these things hold them back in loving themselves, thus making them doubt if they can also love other people. I dunno if you believe it, but before you can fully love other people, you must learn to love yourself first. Loving yourself would mean accepting your past, present self, and being able to look forward to your future self without worrying over your past. Kim Hyunmi | DNA HYYH never end. Starting from I Need U, which portrays the instability of youth and continued by Run, which shows the energetic side of youth before the HYYH series ′ended′ with HYYH forever with title track of Fire, did you realize that HYYH never ended? With the existence of HYYH The Notes that hopefully we can read it soon, it proves that HYYH didn′t end on HYYH forever. It′s a time lapse, and Jin is travelling through the time. Wings shows the side of youth falling into irresistible temptation which we can consider that it′s actually Jin who fall into the irresistible temptation, because he want to have the ability to turn back the time. To save his friends, to undone the mistake that they′ve done, to warn them about what will happen in the future. Highlight Reel for Love Yourself, shows that Jin is actually travelling through time because of the time stamp. Wings is actually the consequences of Jin who travelled back through the time repetitiously. His face cracked at the end of the music video. And maybe, he managed to travel back through time and fix up the mistake. And Jin is gone, for good. That′s why there′s a scene of shoes hanging on the tree in Spring Day. It′s Jin shoes that Jimin hold and hung it on the tree. It′s a signify that someone had died. If you watch the VCR for HYYH concert, the 7 members are taking a group picture but only Jin was captured. It′s because only Jin was alive at that time; and he′s not accepting the truth. That′s why he travel back through the time, that′s why the quote on the Love Yourself poster said; ′If I can turn back time, I wish to go back to the summer sea.′ Because that′s the only time where they were the happiest, before they didn′t contact each other after that. Like it was planned. So we′re still circling in the HYYH era, but with different names. HYYH; 15.04.29 - Forever. Hina Ali WINGS trailers X LOVE YOURSELF Click the titles below! Lie First Love Reflection Mama Awake #HER eemiinn https://twitter.com/noironyaside/status/898142104966254592 “This short story is about what each member does when they are alone, not with the other member” Sanchari Bhowmik My theory shows the Love Yourself Highlight Reel in which the boys struggle with love but if you wanna love someone first you have to love yourself and not to forget that life′s precious. Also I expect it would be more beautiful than The Beautiful Moments in Life series. That′s it. Love you a lot BTS and Fighting! Johansen Bang BTS HIGHLIGHT REEL THEORY 2017 Part 4 (Very quick analysis; I′m busy *cries*) "If we could turn back the clock, where should we go back to? Once we reach that place, can all our mistakes and errors be undone? Will happiness be ours to stay? Though many seasons pass, there are places that cannot be reached. Yet another storm to be faced and to be weathered head-on. Loving without fear. Hesitating and parting. Merely living as the person I am." Honestly, I had a headache just merely thinking about these lines. As what I have told you, the six members represent Jin, the girls are there counterparts (anima), the red notebook contains imaginations/vision... and I am thinking now if all of those scenes from HYYH really happened, as they played backward to the reel. But I think they were. They really happened (in Jin′s life--as he represents the six members) Remember his caption from his poster? "If I could turn back time, I want to go back to the sea of that summer." All of those happened in Jin′s life, and he was trying to turn back time, just like the lyrics in the song, Butterfly: [Will you stop time If this moment passes As though it hadn′t happened I′m scared scared scared I′ll lose you] Jin wanted to go back and change something from the PAST, but he only got tired after doing so (as what I have noticed; he looks so sick and almost giving up.) He will never reach the place even though how many times he tries. That′s why he saved the vase from falling, because small things can affect everything in the FUTURE, and we call that butterfly effect. He didn′t want to see something breaking again, ′cause he has regrets in the past. But even though he has regrets, he will now try to love himself--the way he WAS. The way he is. Well, anyway, you ever noticed the moon on his poster? We call that Waxing Crescent Moon, and that will appear on SEPTEMBER 25, 2017 (MONDAY) I don′t know if there is something Big Hit will drop on that day, but let us just be ready, in case. a brown piano My theory for what the overarching concept is https://twitter.com/kookminvasion/status/896394042510000128, how Jin is time travelling https://twitter.com/kookminvasion/status/899937315316879360 and how he remembers every universe in the Highlight Reels https://twitter.com/kookminvasion/status/898631704910348288. Also, how the time travel thing connects to Wings/HYYH https://twitter.com/kookminvasion/status/861964106554892288. “He′s stuck in a timeloop trying to review his decisions from HYYH, since the members are representations of himself too”
