Viu launches a talent search for Filipino K-Pop idol

What do you get when you add 10 aspiring K-pop idols, three mentors and two real-life South Korean idols to serve as inspiration? You get a talent search that could possibly launch the career of the first Filipino K-Pop idol. The next question that should be asked is this: is it possible to have a Filipino K-Pop idol? Being a foreigner is definitely a disadvantage, learning Korean is a must. But it's not impossible. There are non-Korean K-Pop idols who have a successful career after their debut. For example, Got7's BamBam and BlackPink's Lisa are Thai; Twice's Mina, Momo and Sana are Japanese and Lai Guan-Lin of Wanna One is Taiwanese. Therefore it is not impossible that the newest ...Keep on reading: Viu launches a talent search for Filipino K-Pop idol.....»»

PBA: Coach Leo on Finals: 'I think it will be a good series against Ginebra'

It's either San Miguel Beer head coach Leo Austria is stressed over the PBA semifinals or he just has a really, really high level of confidence. Or maybe he just thinks in advance. Anyway, it seems like coach Leo is already ready for a Commissioner's Cup Finals against Brgy. Ginebra. After taking a 2-0 semis lead against Alaska Monday, Austria casually mentioned the Gin Kings as their Finals opponents. Take note, San Miguel could still end up losing to the Aces and Ginebra is still only up 1-0 against top seed Rain or Shine in the other series. But asked if he has the championship already in mind with the Beermen one win away from the Finals, Austria is keeping his focus on the present series against Alaska. Can't say the same against the Ginebra-Rain or Shine series. "No, we're not thinking of the championship, dahil kung para sa amin, darating 'yan eh," Austria. "But I think it will be a good series against Ginebra, dahil alam naman natin they are the hottest team in the league right now, eight consecutive wins ano. And makikita mo, nag-beef up sila, so with the addition of Jeff Chan, so probably they are preparing their team for our zone defense against them," he added. It's either San Miguel head coach Leo Austria is stressed over the PBA semifinals or he just has a really, really high level of confidence. Or maybe he just thinks in advance. Anyway, it's funny. That's coach Leo for you. Back to the Alaska series, Austria is still bracing for an Aces comeback. This current rivalry has seen crazier things happen in the recent past. "Well, makikita mo naman talaga, lahat naman sinasabi, sabi nila super team kami against Alaska without Abueva and Banchero. And they keep on fighting back, and in the first half, lagi kaming nalalamangan nila. So I have to admire, 'yung trabaho ng mga coaching staff dahil talagang scouted nila, and alam nila kung anong ginagawa namin, but maybe because of the superior talent we have, 'yun ang nagpe-prevail," Austria said. "But we should not be matuwa dito sa talent na pinapakita namin, dahil come championship game, so it's a different story. And we still have to work hard, especially on defense," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

VP Robredo asks PET to disregard SolGen’s position on vote threshold

The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo asked the Supreme Court sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) to disregard position of the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) that the 50 percent threshold in determining the valid votes during the 2016 elections should be maintained. Robredo aired her concern in a 13-page manifestation dated July 13 but made public only on Monday through her lawyer Atty. Romulo Macalintal. The Vice President said the OSG, through Solicitor General Jose Calida, is not privy to the threshold shading issue. Macalintal said taking the OSG's position would "erode the very foundation of our democracy." Calida was supposed to represent the Commi...Keep on reading: VP Robredo asks PET to disregard SolGen’s position on vote threshold.....»»
