Red Velvet's new reality show trip in Thailand

After months of waiting, Red Velvet are preparing to air their first reality show, "LEVEL UP PROJECT," at the end of the month, some of which was shot in Thailand. The reality show follows the group's travels and daily lifestyle during their first visit to Thailand, which took place about 4 months ago in March.

Unfortunately for Joy fans, she was not able to join the rest of her group in Thailand due to scheduling conflicts with filming her TV series "The Liar and His Lover." Still, let's wait and see what the rest of the members get up to as they take fans on a journey through Thailand!

CNBLUE are coming to Bangkok for their "Between Us" Asia Tour

After coming to Thailand back in April with PSY, AOA, and Apink for the opening of the Korean-themed mega mall, Show DC, Korean rock band CNBLUE will soon be returning with their concert "CNBLUE Asia Tour 2017 Between Us" to Singapore, Manila, Jakarta, Bangkok, Hong Kong, and Taipei.

The band will be reuniting with all the BOICEs across Asia on seven dates, with CNBLUE's Thailand show taking place on 13 August 2017.

iKON will be in Thailand this Summer 

Three idols from three nations (Korea, Japan and Thailand) will take to the same stage at the upcoming “2017: 411 FANDOM PARTY IN BANGKOK” event, which is scheduled for on 30 August 2017.

One of K-pop's hottest groups, iKON, will be bringing their renowned onstage presence to Thailand, and they will be joined by BNK48, the Thai sister group to Japan's renowned mega idol group AKB48.

For those who are unaware, BNK48 debuted last year amongst other sister groups, such as Taiwan's TPE48, Jakarta's JKT48, Manila's MNL48, and Guangzhou's GNZ48.

Last, but certainly not least, multi-talented Thai super star Peck Palotchoke will be completing the event's line-up. Looks like the event is shaping up to be something special come August!

Is that Ariana and Maroon 5's Adam Levine? (Surprisingly, it's not!)

No, this is not the cover magazine of Ariana Grande and Maroon 5's Adam Levine together!

It’s in fact a picture from Thailand’s hit TV show "Sing Your Face Off", which features celebrities going head-to-head in a singing competition. However, there's a twist - they must perform as iconic singers; the voice, looks, attitude and all!

In the show's current season, Thai singer, actor, model, and the winner of the 5th season of Thai reality talent show "TrueVisions' Academy Fantasia" Nat Thewphaingam was made up like Adam Levine, right down to the tattoos. Alongside him is Thai actress, singer and model Pim Pimprapa, who dressed, acted, and sang like Ariana Grande.

Given that Ariana Grande will be coming to Thailand mid August for her tour, this is quite a nice welcome for the super star!

Pu Praiya is getting some fashion attention in Hollywood

Attending the Golden Globes at the beginning of this year, sultry Thai-Swedish model-actress Pu Praiya Soandokmai is gaining a considerable amount of attention in Hollywood due to her eye-catching fashion choices. The model has been spotted in Star Magazine and OK! Magazine, where she was compared alongside other big-name models like Chrissy Teigen and Kendall Jenner.

New tunes!

New in from Scrubb, the new song "Ru Suek (Diary)" captures the story in each period of a man's life, which is all complemented by Scrub's unique sound.
