Akdong Musician Releases Album For Hangeul Day

The brother and sister duo, Akdong Musician (Lee Chan Hyuk and Lee Soo Hyun), will be releasing a new single titled  "Ga Na Da Together" in honor of Hangeul Day on Friday, October 9th.
The commemoration song will release on AKMU's respective social media networks such as their official Youtube and Facebook pages.
The production of "Ga Na Da Together" was a joint project of YG Entertainment with Woori Card to create a public campaign and raise awareness of the special holiday.
The song "Ga Na Da together" features a very unique chorus in Korean as both Chan Hyuk and Soo Hyun sing the whole alphabet ("Ga Na Da Ra Ma Ba Sa Ah Ja Cha Ka Ta Pa Ha") in the song.
As people commemorate Hangeul Day, the collaboration hopes that this becomes a factor for foreigners and Koreans to be more drawn into the language. With that, Akdong Musician hopes that this could be a new start to a newfound appreciation.

EXO Lotte World

Lotte World has released a short video which shows all nine EXO members having blast while trying out the roller coasters and other rides at the popular theme park in Seoul, South Korea.
The video, titled 'EXO Live in LOTTEWORLD," is a treat to watch because of how happy the members looked during their fun time at the amusement park.

We see the boy group screaming their hearts out at the French Revolution roller coaster, a super-fast ride that rotates for up to 540 degrees in some portions and even goes through buildings, which adds to the excitement.
The EXO boys then tried out the Conquistador, a Viking ride that swings back and forth and almost reaches the ceiling of Lotte World at its highest point.
As a break from all the heart-pumping rides, the EXO members then take a leisurely whirl at the Camelot Carrousel.
At the end of the 30-second video, the message "Live Adventure in Lotte World" appears, which seems to suggest more videos coming out to show the members touring the amusement park.
EXO is preparing to debut in Japan with the single album Love Me Right - Romantic Universe scheduled to drop on November 10. The Korean version of "Love Me Right" was previously promoted by the group in June as part of the Love Me Right repackaged album, which sold more than 1 million copies.

Diabolik Lovers Season 2: More Blood

Today it was announced that Sentai Filmworks has licensed reverse harem anime series "Diabolik Lovers" season two. The series, which is currently being streamed outside of Japan by Crunchyroll, premiered on Oct. 4. Because Sentai Filmworks released the first season with an English dub, the second season is likely to get the same treatement.
So far, fans in an ANN forum are expressing excitement for Sentai's licensing of "Diabolik Lovers" season two.
"This is definitely going on to my 'to buy' list. I already have the first season, signed by some of the voice actors, sitting on my shelves," said WashuTakahashi.
Anime News Network reports that the first season assistant director Risako Yoshida is replacing the previous director Shinobu Tagashira. ZEXCS will still handle the animation production, but the new script supervisor will be Hiroko Kanasugi. Yuuko Yahiro will return as the character designer.
ANN also reports the following main Japanese voice cast for "Diabolik Lovers" season two:

My Anime List describes the series of "Diabolik Lovers" as follows:
"Yui Komori used to see dead people. But as troubling as past glimpses of spirits, poltergeists, and psychic phenomena may have been, they pale into insignificance compared to what she's about to discover once she's forced to transfer to a new school."
It goes on:
"Now she'll be sharing her living space with six very attractive young men, though not a single one is human. In moving from her father's church to becoming the object of six blood lusting young vampires' affections, Yui will undergo the most shocking, soul ripping and draining experience any teenage girl could imagine in her wildest fantasies... or most salacious nightmares."

Cameron Diaz.

Cameron Diaz spent some time in Australia before rumors that she may be pregnant circulated. Now, a report has surfaced saying she tried something Nicole Kidman did in the Land Down Under to "boost" her chances for a baby.
As reported by OK! Magazine, "The Other Woman" actress purportedly took a dip in the waters of Australia in hopes of finally carrying baby number one with husband Benji Madden.
"Cameron is very open-minded-she even tired bathing in Aboriginal waters in Australia to boost fertility, which she heard about from Nicole Kidman," the source said. "Unfortunately, it didn't work, so not she's turned to IVF."
It was not clear if "The Other Woman" actress has been getting advice from Nicole Kidman on her pregnancy struggles. But in 2008, Kidman did admit that she fell pregnant with daughter Sunday Rose after swimming in the waters of Western Australia during filming there.
"Nothing happened in a small way on this film... we had heat and torrential rains and equine flu and then I got pregnant," Nicole Kidman told Australia's Women's Weekly in 2008 as quoted by The Telegraph. "Seven babies were conceived out of this film and only one was a boy. There is something up there in the Kununurra water because we all went swimming in the waterfalls, so we can call it the fertility waters now."
Cameron Diaz, like Nicole Kidman before she finally fell pregnant, has been reportedly struggling to conceive for some time now. In a recent report on Starpulse, it was mentioned that she has been undergoing fertility treatments to help her get baby number one.
Over the weekend, Cameron Diaz and husband Benjie Madden were spotted on a night out in Los Angeles. The pair were once again bombarded by photographers asking if the actress was pregnant, as told by Hollywood Life. But pair kept mum on the shower of questions just like they have done in the past months.

Rami Malek

'Mr. Robot' TV Series Season 2 Cast: Vigilante hacker Elliot Alderson, Rami Malek's character, will take off his black hoodie for Mr. Robot season 2 but he will also trade up as far as technology. He will have to after it was revealed in the, spoiler alert, finale that Elliot was being played by White Rose from the beginning.

"Mr. Robot" Season 2 will probably return to USA Network either late June or July 2016 and is expected to keep its time slot. The post-credits scene showed that the White Rose, played by BD Wong, was playing both sides.
Sam Esmail, the series creator, originally conceived Mr. Robot as a feature film. Esmail explained that the duplicity was part of the plot from the start. Mr. Robot turned out to be Elliot's dead father. Now that he told Elliot to hide the fact that he is his father from Evil Corporation, there is speculation that Mr. Robot is alive in some virtual reality.
When "Mr. Robot" season 2 begins, Mr. Robot will get to play multiple aspects of his multiple personalities.
"He has a dissociative identity disorder," creator Sam Esmail told Deadline.com.
"There are archetypes. People who suffer from this disorder sometimes have a mother figure at play or a father figure."
"There are greater things going on," Esmail continued.
"It's just about how I reconcile the two." Mr. Robot would have gone out with a bang just by ending with the big father reveal, but Esmail says, "I didn't want to put too much weight on that. I felt that the ending shouldn't be that shocking, rather more conclusive. No big wow and without the characters seeing their repercussions of what was going on."
Esmail said the 'Mr. Robot' season finale will bring on new challenges for the hacker. He is trying to damage "Evil Corp" but is going up against the two villains played by Michael Cristofer and BD Wong.
Esmail says he can see USA Network's TV series "Mr. Robot" running five years. He also spoke about the upcoming season 2.
"I think the first season, there's a lot of character development. To me, none of the thrilling elements work if you don't have a character that's fleshed out, that feels real, that you can relate to or empathize with or understand," Esmail told ET.
"So we're always doing both. But at the end of the day, what a good story is, for me, is really about a person and how they're growing and how they're evolving. The emotional journey is 100 percent the heartbeat of the show. And that's something that we'll never lose." 
Fans are loving the repercussions, even as they shed light on the reality of hacking.
"It speaks to this generation and what is happening currently - especially with technology and our relationship to technology and hacking," Portia Doubleday recently told Entertainment Weekly.
"I think that in the next five years, we are going to see how much hacking really is going to affect society and our relationships. It is really relatable and the characters are really relatable as well."
"Mr. Robot" tells the story of computer hacker Elliot (Rami Malek), who gets involved with ag group of hackers led by Mr. Robot (Christian Slater) who want to bring down tech company E Corp. Mr. Robot, co-stars Portia Doubleday, Carly Chaikin and Martin Wallström. It was created by Sam Esmail who executive produces with Steve Golin and Chad Hamilton.

Kris and Luhan

Kim Young Min, CEO of popular South Korean record label SM Entertainment, criticised former EXO members Kris aka Wu Yifan, Luhan and Tao at the first Korea-China Music Industry Forum held at Dongdaemun Design Plaza on Wednesday, 7 October.
He said that the "weaknesses in the legal systems of Korea and China" have been utilised by the Chinese entertainers for their personal and short-term gains.
"They only followed their 'selfs,' without any communication with the fans who have been with them from the beginning and with the music market. This can all be seen as their personal matters," Allkpop quoted him as saying.
Young Min even spoke about the impact of a legal dispute with SM Entertainment on the singers' professional lives and said that they will miss several career opportunities.
He said the former Kpop stars will not be attending the EXO concert in Japan "that will mobilise over 50,000 people" of Chinese and Korean descent. "In the Asian market, and as Chinese-born artists, I wonder what honor they have. I think it's something to consider," he added.
While Kris and Luhan left the popular South Korean-Chinese boy band in May and October 2014, respectively, Tao terminated his contract with the entertainment agency last April.
However, the CEO revealed that he would not like to argue about the differences between the Korean and Chinese markets. According to him, it is the time for the leaders of the two countries to discuss on how to lead, expand and advance the Asian market.
"We have to think about the online platforms and the overall management rules and devise an alternate course of action. There may be trial and error but we have to create a cohesive mechanism that will evolve the Asian market into the biggest market that the West has seen," said the CEO of SM Entertainment.
