Divided into two parts, the first half of the record was released in 2016 with an opening track featuring the late singer Jonghyun of SHINee.

Elsewhere, the Jecheon native enlisted the help of 1990’s contemporaries such Lee Hyo-ri of Fin.K.L and Jung Ryeo-won of Chakra for a taste of legendary girl-group members.

Plagiarism Issue

ASIAN GRUP

Singer Uhm Jung-hwa came back in 2016 with the album The Cloud Dream of the Nine, which was released on December 27. Even so, it seemed that Uhm Jung-hwa was forced to deal with the plagiarism issues just before her comeback. The new album’s cover, where Uhm Jung-hwa poses decorated with lights, was claimed to have been plagiarized from other works.

Uhm Jung-hwa’s cover photos are known to be similar to those from the duo of American pop singers, Lily and Madeleine, for “Keep it Together”, which was released in February, 2016. Related to the accusation, the agency representative for Uhm Jung-hwa claimed that such a concept was very commonly used and did not necessarily belong to someone.

“The project used for shooting was very common. Such an atmosphere has been used by many people and many genres,” said the representative from Uhm Jung-hwa’s agency. “Photographer Hong Jang-hyun only expresses fantasy from the image of the album ‘The Cloud Dream of the Nine’. He only uses light for it.”

Meanwhile, to comeback after a long hiatus from the music industry, Uhm Jung-hwa released the new music video for her song in 2016. She brought the main single, titled “Watch On Me” and prepared another song that collaborated with a number of other idols, such as SHINee’s Jonghyun, on her new album.

Insa-dong Scandal, Trick The World! Kim Rae-won, Uhm Jung-hwa [EBS Korean Film Special]

‘Insa-dong Scandal’, directed by Park Hee-gon and starred by Kim Rae-won and Um Jung-hwa, is broadcast in EBS Korean Film Special. The Insa-dong Scandal, which airs at 1:15 pm on Sunday, September 8, 2019 depicts a picture that disappeared 400 years ago and depicts their warlike fraud around it.

EBS Korean film special ‘Insa-dong scandal’ is a legendary painting ‘Wall Ando’ painted by the court dog of the Joseon Dynasty. A picture that first revealed its existence through the book of Owon or also known as Jang Seung-eop, discovered 60 years ago as the answer artist of Montudo Island, shakes the Korean art world.

In particular, the Insa-dong scandal boasts not only the leading actors of Kim Rae-won and Uhm Jung-hwa, but also the cast of actors and cameos such as Im Ha-ryong, Bum-hyun, Kim Jung-tae, Kim Byung-ok, Son Byeong-ho, Go Chang-seok, Ma Dong-seok, Choi Song-hyun and Oh Jung-se.

In this drama, Kim Rae-won plays a role Lee Kang-jun. He is The first Asian restorer and third-handed clone technician in Paris. He disappeared in the scandal surrounding the restoration of the painting and appeared in the world with the dog’s ‘wall relief’. If it’s genuine, 40 billion won … Korea’s highest painting. The restoration of an unknown picture obtained by Bae Tae-jin of the gallery ‘Inscription’ was left at his fingertips. Lee Kang-joon is at the center of a large-scale replica duplication of intrigue and reversal that shook Korea. His hands begin to paint the world.

Whereas Uhm Jung-hwa played the role of Bae Tae-jin, the villain chairman of Gallery Inscription, a talented artist who shakes and shakes the art world. Like Medusa, she combines intellectual charm, girl-pure purity, and devilish sexyness with her hands on a legendary wall that disappeared 400 years ago. In Japan’s huge collection, paintings can be valued at hundreds of billions. To restore the painting, Lee Kang-jun of Scout was scouted, and hidden talents in the art world began to appear. In order to accumulate his power and wealth not only in Japan, China, and North Korea, but also in auctions and private auctions, the great hands of the grim art world began to move.
