HYBE previewed their upcoming plans without boy band BTS, starting with a solo album by septet leader RM and followed by a new boy band and collaborations with other companies, during a online briefing held Thursday on YouTube.

“HYBE is a community, with each label having its own characteristics and competitiveness,” said CEO Park Ji-won. “Our community plans to work closely with fans, talented artists and partners in various related fields.”

RM will be the third BTS member to release solo music this year, following J-Hope in July and Jin in October. A date for RM’s new title was not specified, and CEO Park only said it would be “in the near future.”

The announcement came as the K-pop company continues to try to convince investors that its business is sustainable without BTS. HYBE made it official on October 17 that BTS members will perform their mandatory military service, starting with the oldest member, Jin.

After clearing up its biggest uncertainty, HYBE shares rose 4.8% a day after the announcement and have been climbing ever since. Analysts said the increase was due to HYBE diversifying its lineup of artists and reducing its reliance on boy bands.

“BTS accounted for up to 95% of HYBE’s revenue until 2019, but this percentage dropped to 70% in 2021 and 50% in 2022,” said Kim Hyun-yong, analyst at Hyundai Motor Securities.

“This percentage is expected to drop to 30% in 2023 when BTS’ hiatus really begins. On the other hand, other artists like Seventeen, Tomorrow X Together, Enhypen, Le Sserafim and NewJeans will be more active.”

These days, Rockstar is best known for Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, but the studio has also found success in racing games. The Nightclub The series debuted in 2000 and draws inspiration from the illegal street racing scene to provide players with exhilarating, high-speed experiences in urban environments. With its seemingly endless customization options, car enthusiasts can also go wild building the vehicle of their dreams.

Although the Nightclub The series was very popular among gamers, it lay dormant for many years. It’s not the only street racing franchise out there, but no other series has managed to replicate the elements that make it special. Unlike other franchises, Nightclub is proud of its authenticity and loyalty to the automotive culture it represents.

Midnight Club and Street Racing

The 2000s brought with them many gaming trends, including the rise of arcade street racers. These games were popular because they encapsulated the culture of car customization that permeated pop culture, in part due to the popularity of the Fast and Furious film series. Many game franchises have jumped on the cultural wave, including EA Need of speed series, which dominated the genre with clandestinely, Underground 2and Need for Speed: Most Wanted.

Rockstar also entered the scene with the Nightclub series. The series takes its name from the real-world Japanese street racing group that achieved high notoriety before disbanding following a race that resulted in a horrific accident in 1999. Gamers were drawn to the series in because of the large selection of vehicles on offer, ranging from luxury cars and Japanese imports to motorcycles and SUVs. Players can go crazy customizing these vehicles with shiny paint and shiny rims.

Nightclub also has a level of authenticity that sets it apart from its many competitors. It features a hip-hop and techno soundtrack that perfectly captures the imported car culture of the era. Rockstar’s commitment to authenticity is highlighted with Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition which was released in 2005. The studio collaborated with DUB Magazinewhich is a magazine focused on car customization, and it helped the developers to fine-tune the game’s car styling and car customization options to better cater to car enthusiasts.

The future of arcade street racing

However Nightclub had a long and glorious run, his flame was extinguished with Midnight Club: Los Angeles. It looks like Rockstar left the franchise in favor of bigger names like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. It’s no surprise, as the arcade street racing genre no longer enjoys the popularity it had in the early 2000s. A few arcade street racers have been released over the years from franchises like Burnoutbut none have succeeded in reproducing Nightclubits authenticity, reach and fun factor. Fans of the genre shouldn’t lose hope just yet, though. Need of speed did a good job of rejuvenating the genre. Need heat fast received a mixed reception, but Unlimited Speed ​​Need seems to have the potential to build on Heat‘s foundation and finally present something phenomenal.

Nightclub will forever have a legacy in gaming as one of the most iconic arcade street racing franchises, even if it never returns. While a reboot of the series would be greatly appreciated by fans, it seems unlikely that Rockstar will go in that direction again. While EA Need of speed may not be able to catch up NightclubIn the absence of, it could hopefully provide enough fun to satisfy fans of the genre.

The owner of Domu grew up in his family’s restaurants and now owns 7 of them https://kenthe390.com/the-owner-of-domu-grew-up-in-his-familys-restaurants-and-now-owns-7-of-them/ Tue, 01 Nov 2022 10:30:00 +0000 https://kenthe390.com/the-owner-of-domu-grew-up-in-his-familys-restaurants-and-now-owns-7-of-them/

ORLANDO, Florida. – Sean “Sonny” Nguyen spent much of his childhood in his family’s restaurants.

“I was brought to the restaurant with my parents, just because they had to keep watching me,” he said. “So I was always in the back room. My aunts and uncles also owned restaurants, mostly Chinese buffets, and there was always a back room where all the kids and cousins ​​hung out.

Nguyen – who owns Domu, as well as several other restaurants – said he had always loved cooking, but his parents actively discouraged him from working in restaurants.


“Honestly, they hated it,” he said. “They were saying, ‘You have to be a doctor, you have to be a pharmacist, you have to be a lawyer, you have to have a high salary. I understood where they came from. My parents came in the 70s, on a boat, by chance and floated to the Philippines and were rescued and brought to America. So they were during this time of war. The Communists took over (Vietnam). It was really hard for them and so I think they just wanted a better life and I understand that part.

Check Florida Foodie podcast. You can find each episode in the media player below:

Nguyen worked for the Bento Group from 2007 to 2016 when he first opened Domu in Orlando’s East End Market.

“I was opening the restaurants for (Bento) all over the state and so I understood the project management side, the construction side, the food costs and all that – managing the business side as well. So it’s very important, not only to know how to cook, but also to know how to run a business,” he said.

Nguyen describes Domu as a “neighborhood ramen shop”.

“You’re going to walk in and you’re going to hear hip-hop music. It’s not traditional,” he said.

He added that Domu has set himself many rules, such as no reservations and no takeout.

It’s because we want to be able to run the room, but we’re looking at this with the goal of being able to take care of the customers and not overwhelm us and to make sure the team can keep up with it,” a- he declared.

Domu has proven himself. The restaurant has expanded to three locations and was recently recognized by Michelin with a Bib Gourmand award, which recognizes high quality cuisine at reasonable prices.

Beyond Domu’s success, Nguyen has also opened two new concepts in Orlando’s Mills 50 neighborhood – Tori Tori, a cocktail bar serving Japanese-style snacks, and Edoboy, a stand-up sushi bar.

In the latest episode of Florida Foodie, Nguyen talks about balancing multiple restaurants with his family life. He also shares what it was like to keep his businesses alive during the pandemic and what it was like to be recognized by Michelin.

100 best albums of the 21st century, according to critics | Entertainment https://kenthe390.com/100-best-albums-of-the-21st-century-according-to-critics-entertainment/ Fri, 28 Oct 2022 21:00:00 +0000 https://kenthe390.com/100-best-albums-of-the-21st-century-according-to-critics-entertainment/

Music has always played a role in helping to define cultural moments throughout history. Stacker set out to find the best albums of the 21st century, compiling data from Metacritic (as of October 2022). Albums have been ranked based on their Metascore, which represents an aggregation of critical reviews. Only albums with seven or more reviews were eligible. EPs, box sets, reissues and compilations have not been taken into account.

Some of Stacker’s discoveries, like Ashley Monroe, Jamey Johnson and the legendary Loretta Lynn, might have listeners singing along or even forget about the outside world for a few minutes. In the realm of pure pop, Self Esteem’s latest album “Prioritise Pleasure” is hailed as 45 minutes of melodic bliss.

On the other end of the spectrum, there’s no shortage of music to get angry and let it all out. Hear the rumbling grindcore of Napalm Death, the metalcore of Converge, the electronica punk of Primal Scream, the black metal of Deafheaven and the sounds of Polish extreme metal band Behemoth that continue to vex the authorities in their home country.

Discover artists who pay homage to their predecessors who helped shape the world we live in today. Poet Jamila Woods offers thoughtful rhythm and blues portraits of legends like James Baldwin and Muddy Waters; Rapsody has written songs for its heroes, from Sojourner Truth to Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey; and Wadada jazz composer Leo Smith honored 10 pivotal years in the civil rights movement.

Be transported far away by the West African sounds of Ali Farka Touré and Bassekou Kouyaté, or step back in time with Woody Guthrie recordings from the 1940s or a 1992 Nirvana concert in Britain. Then there’s the tempting option of just dancing, which many say is good for body and soul. Hear the hip-hop sounds of Missy Elliott, the hard-hitting dubstep of British band Burial and Frank Ocean’s rousing collection of rhythm and blues, neo-soul and pop.
