“WE KID” Contestant Makes Yoon MiRae Cry; Other Disses Tiger JK

wekid_2

Child reality shows are seen as a risk for TV networks, but throw in a power couple like YoonMiRae and Tiger JK and worry be gone!

MNET’s “We Kid (aka We Sing Like a Kid)” hopes to find the next child star by challenging them to perform new children songs written by famous mentors. The lead coaches include Tiger JK, actress, Park Bo Young, and actor, Yoo Yun Suk. 

Each coach also has their own team of co-mentors and producers, and naturally Tiger JK’s include wife, YoonMiRae, and partner, Bizzy. 

During the premiere episode, Yoon MiRae is brought to tears by a young contestant, Oh Yeon Joon. Although Yoon is considered the level headed member of MFBTY, Oh’s rendition of Pocahontas’ “Colors of the Wind” was enough to make her cry over a children’s song. Oh was naturally chosen, and chose Park Bo Young as his mentor.

However, Oh wasn’t the biggest shock to Tiger and Yoon MiRae. Six-year-old, Lee Ha Rang created his own unique version of Zico and Mino’s, “Okey Dokey.”

The energized performance had the judges and audience alike on their feet and dancing. When asked about why he chose to rap, Lee Ha Rang responded, “Rap is an expression of the mind. That’s what I like about it.”

Most assumed that Lee would choose Tiger JK as his mentor, but every jaw fell to the floor when he chose Yoo Yun Suk. When asked why he chose Yoo over Tiger JK, Lee replied, “I just think his team is better. I was going to choose Tiger JK, but I changed my mind. Sorry!”

Tiger JK jokingly stated that Lee’s choice bruised his ego enough that he’s not willing to do another album.

Don’t worry, J. We still love you.

“It’s very clear that JK’s decision to appear on the show was influenced by his son,” one staff member commented.

Staff and fans alike are hoping Jordan and mom, YoonMirae, will join JK on the show.

YoonMiRae’s Full “This Love” MV Left us In Tears This Morning

Feel Ghood Music released the full YoonMiRae “This Love” MV just 20 minutes ago, and we were so not ready for it. YoonMiRae is seen standing alone in multiple outfits, taking on the different roles she’s been called (queen, beauty, serenity, etc.). However, it’s that piano and accompanied sweet vocals that leave us in the dust. That bridge mid-song… yeah, you might need a minute.

YoonMiRae’s “This Love” single isn’t debuting until Monday, but her teaser released today gives us a look at what to expect. The piano intro takes us into the emotional world, and Lady T’s encapsulating eyes and classy outfits draw us in. Seriously, cue the Kleenex.

Three more days.

Korean Basketball fans have something to be excited about. Tiger JK will be releasing “Dunk Funk,” a track with a basketball theme that will get the hearts of fans racing.

MBC Sports Plus has linked up with Tiger JK to provide a special end-of-year present to the 2015-2016 Pro-Basketball fans – a unique collaboration between Hip Hop and Basketball. 


The MV shooting scene featured Tiger JK and MBC Sports Announcers Jung Young Gum, Son Woo Joo and Park Shin Young.

Tiger JK was infatuated with the announcer badge worn on the announcer’s uniforms and took no time to put it on himself during the MV shoot. It was reported that his funny and often quirky acts made the environment very relaxed and humorous.

“Dunk Funk,” which will be released via MBC Sports Plus, will portray the sport’s unique competitiveness and sportsmanship over hip-hop beats. It is anticipated that with this track playing on the fields, the fans will enjoy basketball even more on a new level.

[news] MFBTY Sell Out First Concert; New Single Next Month and Solos 2016

understageMFBTY

Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae, Bizzy–otherwise known as MFBTY–held their first solo Concert at Seoul Hyundai Card Understage on November 20th, 2015.

This concert was especially meaningful to them as this was their very first solo concert after forming the project group MFBTY. The fans responded accordingly, with the tickets selling out within hours. The fans ranged from the teens, to the 20’s + as well as lots of international fans confirming MFBTY’s status as a true global group.

MFBTY, which stands for My Fans is Better Than Yours rocked the stage harder than ever before with their signature energetic stage presence and this was felt all throughout the crowd.

MFBTY started the concert with “Welcome to Wondaland” and Drunken Tiger’s classic, “Do you Know Hip Hop,” creating a huge sing-along.

“Do You Know HipHop” with acoustic arrangement

MFBTY continued with Drunken Tiger’s classics such as “Good Life,” “I Want You” and “Monster” before heading off to YoonMiRae’s world with “Angel,” “Black Happiness,” “Soul Flower” and “Pay Day.” Finally, they came together in Wondaland’s space by performing “Sweet Dream,” “Get It In” and “Bang Diggy Bang Bang,” hyping the crowd even more.

YoonMiRae “Get It In”

Tiger Jk explained to the crowd the meaning behind the MFBTY name, “MFBTY is not just our group name. It’s love, philosophy and the way of life.” He continued, “We all have our solo works lined up for release. Yoon Mi Rae is releasing her long awaited single in December and Bizzy’s solo album is waiting to be released in 2016.”

Combined with a talented acoustic instrument team, MFBTY delivered a memorable show for fans.


“Monster” acoustic

The idea of MFBTY came about when the three decided to create music they weren’t able to try out as individual musicians. “Sweet Dream” was their first single which was released in January 2013. Since then they worked together in tracks such as Drunken Tiger’s “The Cure,” and Yoon Mi Rae’s “Angel.”

In March this year, MFBTY’s first full album, Wondaland, was released. To much surprise to the fans, the genres included in the album varied from Hip hop to rock as well as electronic, garnering extremely positive reviews from fans all over the world.

The MFBTY members are planning to concentrate on their individual works going forward.

[vid] MFBTY Didn’t Just Drop an MV, They Gave Us a Studio Tour & Free Kareoke

If there is anything that we’ve learned about our boss, Tiger JK, he is extremely spontaneous. It’s something that has driven our staff crazy at times, but genius somehow comes out of it. So when MFBTY decided to drop the long awaited “6AM” MV live from their studio this morning, we were surprised yet glad they went out on this whim.

Fans anticipated they would just see the MV debut, but on top of getting the first glimpse of it, fans were treated to a tour of the studio. Their humble abode is filled with never ending shelves of rare LPs, a quaint recording studio, and random chatskis from their past music video shoots.

After a brief casual sing and dance to Tiger JK’s “Reset,” Tiger JK saw Bizzy regress into quiet mode. Given the MV debut centered around Bizzy, JK encourages him to take the spotlight and sing “Love & Peace” on his own. See Bizzy fully wile out at 16:40 (finally!).
