So, there’s been a lot happening, as is fairly normal nowadays. Bastarz went from #16 on Oricon’s daily chart to #11 to nowhere—stay weird, Oricon! Park Kyung’s song debuted at #3 on the Gaon weekly chart and in two weeks has sold more downloads than either “Tough Cookie” or “Well Done.” (I feel very smug about my opinion regarding Park Kyung’s solo prospects right now.) Jaehyo’s show is out, U-Kwon got cast in a Japanese short film, and Block B as a whole just announced another tour of Japan for January.
And Zico is going to be performing with Miguel.
Am I the only one who sees this
and thinks, “Oh, dear God. What are we trying to do here?”
Anyway, I soldier on. I’m kind of pleased to see that Zico is still working with My Music Taste–they had a real clusterfuck in Colombia, but they are trying to figure out the South American market, and while I realize the economy is not doing well there and reliable partners are hard to find, etc., etc., I still hope that Block B can tour South America sooner rather than later.

Back to us lucky ducks in North America: SubKulture put out the seating charts. Club Nokia in LA will be an open floor, and given what happened the last time I decided to be sensible and not get an up-close ticket, I think I’m going to be going for standing. I haven’t been to the Warfield, but someone on Yelp took a picture of the stage from the lower loge, and yeah, I think I’ll be going for standing there, too. In both cases it’s not like the 1st Block seated tickets would have a bad view, but it’s just not going to be as intimate.
So: Be cool, kids. Let’s not re-enact Infinite at the Hammerstein, OK?
People remain interested….
