K-pop star dream comes true

While they were just a step away from becoming the winner of the sixth and final season of TV survival show K-Pop Star, Sohee and Kriesha Chu did not have to wait long to become a real K-pop Star. They both debuted earlier this week with their respective title songs “Spotlight” and “Trouble,” just over a month after the audition program ended. In their last round of K-Pop Star, Sohee and Kriesha competed in the same team, but from now on, they’ll be competing against each other in conquering the charts, as they enter the world of K-pop stardom.

Girl Group SISTAR disbands after 7 years

This summer will be the last for girl group SISTAR. It'll be the last summer to melt their fans’ hearts with never-failing hit songs. The four-member group announced their disbandment, seven years after their debut. SISTAR’s contract with Starship Entertainment expires next month. But fans shouldn’t be too disappointed, as the members are in talks with their agency on possible solo contracts. Leader Hyolin and Soyou are expected to continue their career as solo singers, while Bora and Dasom are said to focus on acting. SISTAR’s final album is scheduled to come out on May 31, and the group is planning a special goodbye stage for their fans.
