[NEWS] 120628 MBLAQ’s Thunder to Release Solo Track
MBLAQ’s Thunder is coming out with his own solo track next week! According to officials from MBLAQ’s agency, “Following Mirand G.O.’s duet song, Thunder is expected to release his own solo track by next week.”
But just like Mir and G.O.’s duet single, Thunder’s solo track is also only produced for MBLAQ’s Asia Tour, “THE BLAQ% (Asia) TOUR,” and therefore, it won’t involve any official promotions for this song. The title of the song hasn’t been released yet, but the first performance is scheduled for the group’s Indonesia concert this weekend.
MBLAQ’s will kick off their Asia Tour concert in Jakarta, Indonesia on June 30. That’s when Mir and G.O. will showcase their unit group song for the first time as well. As reported earlier, Mir and G.O. released their digital single, “Wild,” on June 27, but they haven’t decided if it will become an official subunit group yet.
[NEWS] 120629 MBLAQ’s Jakarta concert due to demand of Indonesian A+
Unlike other South Korean groups that normally kick off their tours in their home country, MBLAQ (Music Boys Live in Absolute Quality) has chosen Jakarta as a first stop for its first Asian tour, “The BLAQ% Tour”, due to the high demand from Indonesian A+, as the group’s fans are called.
“We read so many messages from Indonesian fans that have asked us to stage a show here. We should therefore thank Indonesian fans,” MBLAQ member G.O said during a press conference here on Friday.
MBLAQ – consisting of Seung Ho, G.O., Lee Joon, Thunder, and Mir – will hold the concert at the Mata Elang International Stadium, North Jakarta, on Saturday.
As Jakarta will be the group’s first overseas concert, they said they had prepared many special performances, including the first live performance of a new single, “Wild”, which is a duet with Mir and G.O that was released early this week.
The group has released four mini albums since its first debut in 2009.

On June 27th, celebrity football team FC MEN, led by captain JYJ Junsu, was spotted engaging in a friendly match against the Suwon home team, the Suwon Samsung Bluewings at the Suwon World Cup Stadium.
Many famous performers joined the FC MEN team for the informal and open game, as Kim Hyun Joong, Suh Ji Suk, Lee Wan, and 2AM‘s Seulong were present as FC MEN team members. Although the celebrities appear to be having a great time in the pictures shown, one of the highlights during the event is said to be when Kim Hyun Joong missed a chance to score, and was thus disappointed.
FC MEN, a group composed of celebrities of diverse talents, is the fifth Suwon football team, and it has been around for a while. Last year, the FC MEN members were even able to snag the ’2011 Peace Star Cup’, as the winners of the celebrity soccer championships.
