It's a nice and breezy Wednesday afternoon here in Seoul -- and you know what that means - it's celebrity news time with Michelle Kim.
[Reporter : Michelle Kim] Hello Conn-young
So what's the latest entertainment news this week
[Reporter : ] Well in the music scene, we have several album releases that might interest you.
Shinee and Jang Nara have also released new albums.
Take a look.
K-pop group Shinee has been a driving force behind Hallyu, or Korean wave in Europe, including Paris and London.
Their title track on their new album, "Sherlock" mixes two different songs, which adds an unconventional twist.
Tony Testa, the choreographer for Michael Jackson, has added to Shinee's sophisticated and classy performance.
After leading the Korean wave in China, singer Jang Nara has made a comeback with a sad ballad song in Korea after a 4-year gap.
She sings about the emotions of a woman who is longing for a man who used to love her.
Jang Nara has also received much praise for her acting in her music video.
[Reporter : ed:jack] All of the albums have been released so check them out in the stores or offline.
So, Shinee and Jang Nara
Yes. And it's nice to have Jang Nara back in Korea and be able to listen to her music again. I used to love her from back in the early 2000s.
Well, we have lots of exciting things to wait for this year. And now, you have the events bulletin for us[Reporter : ] Yes I do. I have two concerts and a movie festival that you may be interested in. Take a look.
[Reporter : ] The events bulletin consists of three events.
Singer Lee Seung-chul is holding a concert at the War Memorial Plaza on June 1st and 2nd. After his visit to Africa, he has been raising money to help build schools for children in Chad. This concert will be one of the fundraisers for that event.
The Jisan Valley Rock Festival will be taking place once again from July 27th to the 29th at the Jisan Forest Resort. The line up consists of Radiohead, Elvis Costello, Owl City, the Kim Chang-wan Band and more.
The International Women's Film Festival in Seoul will be held in four different locations from April 19th to the 26th. This is the world's biggest international women's film festival and was started in 1997. The opening movie at the festival this year will be "The Prize" by Paula Markovitch.
