Rookie 6-member boy group HALO will be debuting on the 26th of June, however on the 24th, just 2 days before their official debut date, their fancafe is already at 2761 members.
Despite the fact that HALO have not yet debuted, they have not yet been able to officially promote themselves on any music programs or mainstream shows, thus a fanbase of over 2500 fans is quite an incredible achievement.
Their agency, AYIN Holdings, thanked the fans who have been so supportive of the group, in which they said, “I think the fans really like how bright and healthy the 6 members of HALO are. Thank you for the love and support, even before their debut.”
HALO will be debuting on the 26th with their single album titled “38°C”, in which their title song will be “The Temperature is Hot”; a song with an addictive melody and lyrics about love and the passion of the youth.
After releasing two video teasers for their comeback single “U R So Cute,” 24K has released the music video for the song, as well as their 2nd mini-album.
With a cute and upbeat vibe, the music video for “U R So Cute” begins with a young girl with her dolls. As the girl matures, she begins to neglect the dolls that have accompanied her through life. They come alive and turn into the 24K members who are amazed at what a mature woman their owner has become.
As her caretakers during the girl’s youth, they follow the woman to ensure she is safe and in fits of jealousy, also ruin her date. With a twist at the end, the take home message is to appreciate people and your memories of them, and look beyond the superficial. Meanwhile, the song, composed and written by leader Cory and composer Dani, sings of a man who has fallen in love.
Their second mini-album, “U R So Cute.” Is a 7-track album with 3 songs and a radio version of the title song, as well as the instrumental versions of the songs.

It’s been revealed that six member group 24K has gone through line-up changes.
The Choeun Entertainment group consisting out of Cory (’90), Sungoh (’91), Kisu (’91), Seokjune (’90), Daeil (’93), and Byungho (’90), was unveiled to have lost Seokjune as a member. An official reason for his leaving wasn’t revealed, saying that it’s a matter between the company and Seokjune himself. He was replaced by Hwan Hoseong.
The addition of new member Hoseong, though rumored before, was officially revealed through their Dream Concert performance earlier this month, as well as pictures on their Facebook account.
Though nothing has been officially confirmed by Choeun Entertainment, 24K is rumored to be preparing for a comeback as well. Leader Cory revealed through a Twitter conversation with C-Clown’s Rome that their comeback had been pushed back for various reasons, but will surely happen.
24K debuted last year through a self-titled mini album. The group went for an unconventional debut, by having its sub-unit 4K release an album before the full group. Alternatively, 2K is the group’s hip-hop and rap unit consisting out of members Daeil and Byungho.
Nichkhun will come back from his hiatus and take part in MBC’s “KOICA’s Dream!” The team headed for Tanzania and began their journey to help those that are underprivileged. The members of the team are scheduled to return back to South Korea on the 21st of October. According to, Koreaboo.
From June 16 to 17, various K-pop groups such as KARA, Rainbow, CN Blue, 2PM and Leessang will join forces with J-pop groups to perform at the “Love-1 Festival” to take place in Osaka.
The Japanese music festival is in its second season this year, kicking off last year in July as the first all-day outdoor K-pop concert event. More than 20,000 fans flocked to last year’s show.
“Love-1 Festival” is known for its emphasis on promoting volunteerism and respect for the environment via its music and sports events.
The participating K-pop acts are all very popular in Japan.
In April, KARA kicked off the Japanese leg of its Asian tour “Karasia” in Yokohama. The group will be busy touring around Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka, Tokyo and Saitama until late May.
In total, KARA will perform in front of more than 130,000 Japanese fans.
Meanwhile, boy band 2PM is set to release a new EP in Japan on June 6.
