On August 24th, it was reported that Dia Tree would be making a fall comeback with their 12th single titled The Day Is Long.

The male vocal trio has been dubbed the second SG Wannabe as they also shine in the arena of ballads. Having just debuted in 2012, the group has released an impressive 12 singles since then.

The group shared, “We first greeted the public in 2012 with the ballad track ‘Missing You’ and we didn’t have a lot of broadcast activities so we are not well-known, but it is already our 12th album. However, thanks to our fans for their continual love and for looking for us, we are here right now. Please look over this single as well.”

Dia Tree will begin promotions with the release of this single, hoping to touch the hearts of even more listeners with their soulful and melodic vocals.

“The Day Is Long” is due for a September 3rd release.

The members of Ladies’ Code returned to the stage for the first time as they remembered the late members EunB and RiSe who passed away in a car accident last September.

Held on August 22nd, the memorial concert was intended to fulfill the wishes of the late members who had dreams to perform in Japan. After recovering from their injuries from the accident, Ashley, Sojung, and Zuny gathered their courage to sing in front of a supportive audience.

Although the three tried to show their smiles, the scars from the accident are obvious as they were seen wiping off their tears as RiSe and EunB appeared in a VCR played in the background.

The members also gave their individual speeches, where leader Ashley held back tears while addressing their fans in Japanese. Sojung also hoped that Ladies’ Code will be remembered forever as a 5-member group and hoped that their song “Smile Even If It Hurts” will reach RiSe and EunB.

Other performing artists at the memorial concert included Kim Bum Soo, YDG (Yang Dong Geun), IvyRumble FishSun Woo, and Han Hee Jun.

On April of 2015, a woman was indicted of rape charges for the first time in Korean history. The woman referred to as Jeon was taken into court and sent to jail after allegedly raping her 51-year-old boyfriend. However, on August 22nd the courts ruled to acquit Jeon of her charges after a jury’s unanimous decision after a 15-hour deliberation.

The court stated, “It is hard to take the prosecutors claims that he took a drink from Jeon without any suspicion even when he knew that she had obsessions towards him and he had a history of falling unconscious previously after accepting a drink from her. Also the prosecutor claimed to have attempted to resist rape from Jeon after taking the drink but Zolpidem, the drug she used, renders one unable to move and makes it impossible for one affected to remember things properly.”

They also acquitted Jeon of wielding a hammer against the victim. The court stated, “The victim claimed that ‘Jeon threatened and wielded a hammer and he felt so threatened and scared that he urinated on the blanket he was on.’ But according to the police report, the injury on the head was minimal and the hospital report does not mention hammers at all.”

According to Korea Times‘ report, Jeon had admitted to drugging her boyfriend, tying him up, as well as yielding a hammer as she feared for her life. She had no intentions of raping him and he has had assaulted in the past. Her lawyer says that since meeting him in 2010 – who was married to another woman – Jeon has been the victim of abuse.

The court unanimously decided to acquit Jeon of all charges.

Changhyun wrote, “It is a man’s obligation in Korea to serve in the military. After completing my services as an active duty soldier, I have thought on returning to Japan. Hyunseok and Jinseok have decided to try a new challenge, and I support and respect their decision of the two.”

Jinseok wrote, “My heart is full of sadness and apologetic. The last six years have gone by very quickly. I am proud to have been a part of SHU-I and it has changed my life. Though each member’s future will be shaped differently, we will continue to support one another.”
