    Indie band Red Velvet voice out against SM Entertainment's choice of name for new girl group; Reach agreement about name use

    Indie band Red Velvet voice out against SM Entertainment's choice of name for new girl group

    SM Entertainment's fresh faces, Red Velvet, are already receiving quite a bit of attention before their official debut, but unfortunately not everyone is excited about the group, or more specifically, their name.

    Although you may think of the new 4-member girl group when you hear 'Red Velvet', it is also the name of an indie band, who have been expressing their frustration about SM's name choice.

    The indie band Red Velvet, who have been active since 2013 in the Hongdae area, voiced their thoughts online, with member Ha Hee Soo writing, "I'm a member of indie band Red Velvet. We released a single last year and have held performances in Hongdae, and were in the midst of preparing for our next album. So we were shocked to hear that a girl group of the same name was about to debut."

    The indie band member further added, "SM couldn't possibly have not searched music sites before deciding on a team name..." And like the member's claim a search on multiple portal sites and music sites does yield their previous single as a result.

    "We are a powerless indie band. If SM's girl group are to debut, our activities will become difficult to carry out... We are a band who have just taken our first steps. We also have a strong attachment to the team name. Please help us so that we will be able to promote as Red Velvet," Ha Hee Soo pleaded.

    It's said the indie band never filed for any copyrights or trademarks for their name, so they do not have any legal rights to insist that the name belongs to them. Therefore, there is no legal issue that would prevent SM's Red Velvet from promoting with the name.

    This is definitely not the first nor the last time that such a situation has occurred between indie bands or lesser known artists and big entertainment companies. One music industry insider commented, "SM is the music scene's biggest company. They won't fight an indie band... These kinds of issues occur frequently in the music scene. Even if there is no legal issue, they will usually take a more moral approach and sort things out amicably." One example mentioned was 2NE1, who had initially been introduced as '21'. However there was a soloist with the name 21 (To Anyone) already in existence, and as a result, YG Entertainment had apologized to the singer and had modified the name to 2NE1.

    This is also not the first time this year that someone has protested against SM Entertainment regarding names, for Winning Insight and boy group MR.MR had expressed their frustration regarding Girls' Generation's latest song being titled 'Mr.Mr'.

    It's being said that it's expected SM Entertainment will be doing their best to sort out an amicable solution with the indie band Red Velvet regarding the matter.

    SM Entertainment and indie band Red Velvet reach agreement about name use

    SM Entertainment and indie band Red Velvet have reached an agreement concerning the use of the same name for the major agency's upcoming four-member girl group.

    The two parties have now come out with official statements regarding the matter and have ultimately decided to continue as is and promote with the same name. Ha Hwi Soo of the indie band Red Velvet told Star News, "[i][After meeting personally with a head at SM], we've concluded that we'll promote with the same name. From now onward, neither will interfere with the use of the name Red Velvet.[/i]"

    A rep from SM Entertainment also stated, "After holding an amicable meeting with the two-member band Red Velvet, we've decided that both parties will use the name. Our company's Red Velvet won't have any setbacks for their debut, and we thank the two-member band Red Velvet for their consideration."

    As previously reported, the indie band Red Velvet, who have been active since 2013 in the Hongdae area, voiced their thoughts online, stating that the band was shocked to hear that a girl group of the same name from SM Entertainment was about to debut. However, the band did not file any copyrights or trademarks, which gave the agency legal allowance to use the name.

    What do you think about both parties' final decision to promote with the same name?

    Kim Jong Kook's fan club feeds the cast and staff of 'Running Man'

    Singer Kim Jong Kook's fan club Papitus fed the cast and staff of SBS variety show 'Running Man'.

    On July 29, Papitus delivered samgyetang (Korean chicken ginseng soup), a buffet, and drinks for 150 cast, staff, and guests of 'Running Man'. Kim Jong Kook's agency Urban Works Entertainment stated, "Papitus has sent over meals every year on Kim Jong Kook's birthday or debut day. This time, the fan club specially prepared the healthy meal of samgyetang for all the staff. Kim Jong Kook was incredibly thankful to his fans."

    Considering how much Kim Jong Kook loves healthy food and fitness, the fan club knew what they were doing when they brought over samgyetang. Hopefully, it made for an extra energetic episode of 'Running Man'!

    JYJ's Jaejoong responds to TVXQ's Yunho's comments with supportive words

    JYJ's Jaejoong responds to TVXQ's Yunho's comments with supportive words

    JYJ's Jaejoong responded to TVXQ's Yunho's compliment about Jaejoong's hard work ethic as a fellow actor by showing his faith in former member Yunho's acting in return.

    During his interview with Xports News at a cafe in Shinsadong, Seoul on the 30th, Jaejoong proved that there's no bad blood between him and TVXQ, showing his support by saying, "I hope [Yunho] does well."

    When asked if he heard about Yunho's mention of him during the press conference for MBC's 'The Night Watchman', Jaejoong shared, "I saw that article... I think he will show good acting... To be honest, I'm not in a position to tell someone to do well... All actors go through a growth process. Even veteran actors, who act well, face a dilemma at one point or another, so compared to those veteran actors, we still have a long way to go."

    "[i]Since Yunho also went through a growth process, I believe that he will show even better acting this time around. Among the staff and actors whom I worked with for this production, there are some who have worked with Yunho. They tell me that he works really hard. Actors who work hard are bound to succeed.[/i]"

    [Update] - According to another media outlet MBN, Jaejoong also expressed his concern for Yunho, who has a tendency to focus on work too much and forget to stay hydrated. When asked if he had any words for Yunho, Jaejoong said, "It'll be very difficult for him as it's his first historical drama. I know because I've done it before. Since it's also hot and such related factors, he'll probably receive a lot of stress too... For what I want to say the most to him, it'd be that I hope he drinks a lot of water as he films. When we promoted together, there was a time when he got dehydrated, so I hope when he films this time he drinks a lot of water and takes care of his physical condition... Yunho is the style that works really hard at whatever it is he's doing. I hope that he looks after his condition as he works instead of rashly working so hard in fear that people will speak badly of him... I also hope that his first attempt at a historical drama will turn out well."

    Viewers will get back-to-back JYJ-TVXQ action with 'The Night Watchman' set to premiere following the conclusion of 'Triangle' on August 4 at 10 PM KST!
