CNBLUE’s Lee Jung Yonghwa Acquitted Of Stock Charges, Lee Jonghyun Fined 20 Million Won

CNBLUE's Lee Jung Yonghwa Acquitted Of Stock Charges

The results of the investigation of insider trading at FNC Entertainment have been revealed.  Jung Yonghwa and Lee Jonghyun of CNBLUE were both accused of illegal stock trades made on the basis of FNC gaining a new, famous celebrity. However, after the two were questioned by police and brought to court, FNC sent out a press release revealing the results, stating, “Jung Yonghwa was ruled as not guilty and will not have any punishment. However, Lee Jonghyun was indicted and must pay a fine of 20 million won (approximately $17,400 USD). Shares of FNC Entertainment valued at around 400 million won (approximately $350,000) were purchased under Yonghwa’s name on July 8-9, 2015. Although he was accused of making the purchase with insider information, it was revealed through the investigation that FNC had not even begun discussing signing Yoo Jaesuk at that time, making it impossible for Yonghwa to have purchased the stocks illegally.  Additionally, since Yonghwa’s finances are managed by his mother, she is the one who actually made the purchase. At the time, Yonghwa had no idea that she had purchased the shares. Discussions of the famous celebrity signing with FNC Entertainment only began on July 16, 2015.  In

Fantasy Vs Reality: MAMA 2015 Award Winners [BLOG]

Much to the delight of international K-pop fans, the annual Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA)  is coming round again on Dec. 2 and will be held in Macau. Nominees for the various categories were announced on Oct. 31, and fan voting began on the same day. It is shaping up to be a heated battle between the multiple fandoms but there are a few groups that have already gained and maintained a strong lead against their competitors. Based on the results of previous years, there is a definite correlation between the size of a group’s fanbase and their chances of winning awards, which might unfairly cause more deserving groups to miss out on a prize. To acknowledge the possibly underappreciated groups and artists that will not be recognised during the awards, let’s have a round of Fantasy Vs Reality  as a prediction for this year’s winners – with the exception of Union Pay Artist and Song of the Year, there are too many nominees for us to pick! Fantasy: SEVENTEEN  &  Oh My Girl These two groups could not be more different in nature but the one thing they have in common is that they’re insanely talented. From participating in

They pick up extra shifts to afford concert tickets, leave thousands of comments on social media defending their favorite idols, and track their wherabouts in the hopes of snagging a rare public sighting of a star.
