A Night of Revelry and Revelations with LISA on “Regal Planet”

BLACKPINK’s LISA charmed audiences at a virtual party on “Regal Planet”, a glittery metaverse created by the world’s leading blended Scotch Whisky, Chivas. It was a night of revelry and revelations as the brand’s Asia ambassador LISA, who crafted a cocktail, interacted with audiences and shared her story of rising through life’s challenges.

The avant-garde event was held on 27 November to celebrate Chivas and LISA’s new collaboration, the Chivas 18 x LISA Limited Edition. The global superstar unveiled the bold and beautiful bottle, which she co-designed with Chivas. As a larger-than-life version of the Chivas 18 appeared, LISA said: “The Chivas 18 limited edition combines classic elegance with modern design. My favourite part is the new monogram, my neon signature and my ‘star’ drawing on the bottle.”

Reminiscent of the exquisite whisky, “Regal Planet” was painted in shimmery gold and amber hues. Visitors could explore and interact in the different rooms of this virtual world. A highlight of the sprawling venue was the “Hustle Area”, where 3D Chivas bottles featuring cocktail recipes were on display. Party-goers also learnt how to craft LISA’s special Chivas cocktail, Pink Spice.

The singer-dancer turned mixologist for a night concocted her signature Pink Spice cocktail. The delightful Whisky Highball cocktail blends Chivas 18 with notes of tea, citrus and spice. LISA liberally added dashes of tabasco to the drink, as she exclaimed: “I like spicy.” Out of the 85 rich-tasting notes within Chivas 18, LISA revealed that her favourite notes are dark chocolate, toffee and vanilla.

Surrounded by avatars of BLINKS from around the world, LISA took time to share updates about her music career. She said: “After our second album “Born Pink”, we are quite busy with our world tour.”

The wildly popular BLACKPINK is in the midst of its “Born Pink” world tour, performing in Asia, North America and Europe. The tour comes hot on the heels of the girl group’s second studio album, “Born Pink”, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart.

To the audience, LISA is a confident and consummate performer. However, LISA candidly admits that she gets nervous at times before stepping onto the stage. On how she encourages herself when nerves hit, she said: “I won’t be able to keep it to myself. That wouldn’t make it any better. As I keep up my passion, I will also share support from my members, making sure that we’re all doing great. This is really important to us.”

Amid the resounding applause after every performance, LISA pauses to reflect on how the magic happened onstage. She said: “I think every successful stage comes from the hard work we put in, so every time I perform, it’s like I’m sharing the joy with everyone.”

Feted by millions for her talent and style, LISA believes that success is borne out of a team effort. Channelling the empowering spirit of the “I Rise, We Rise” campaign by Chivas, she said: “No one is successful alone. With like-minded people, we face challenges together and that is how we get ready for our unknown future.”

The night ended with a resplendent display of virtual fireworks as LISA bade her fans goodbye. She said: “It’s been an amazing time with you all on Regal Planet. But I guess it’s time to say goodbye. Let’s continue our “I Rise, We Rise” legacy.”

Sound Terror Action Movie ‘DECIBEL’ Starring Kim Rae Won and Lee Jong Suk To Premiere in Singapore

Released in South Korea on November 16th, DECIBEL is a ‘Sound Terror Action’ movie portraying a bomb designer (played by Lee Jong-suk) who attempts to occupy a city with a special bomb responsive to a certain degree of the big noise, and a former navy commander (played by Kim Rae-won) who became his target. This much anticipated movie is set to premiere in Singapore cinemas on December 1st.

One of the highlights of this movie is the unique subject of the ‘Sound-responsive Bomb’, a specially designed bomb which senses noise. When it reaches to a certain degree of noise, the remaining time to the explosion will drop by half. And when it passes its limit of noise, the bomb explodes.

In DECIBEL, these bombs are being planted in the middle of the city where no one can control the noise. This uncontrollable ‘Noise’ becomes the trigger of the bomb, boosting its strength in genre as the background of the movie is getting expanded to the entire city.

On top of the distinctive element which doubles the immersion and tension of the movie, audiences can also look forward to the unpredictable story depicted through the tight confrontation of the two main characters, ‘the former Navy Commander who became the target of terrorism’ and ‘the Bomb Designer who once was a Navy Lieutenant & Mensa member’.

DECIBEL stars Kim Rae-won, Lee Jong-suk, Jung Sang-hoon, Park Byung-eun, Lee Sang-hee, Cho Dal-hwan, Cha Eun-woo, and Lee Min-ki.

Movie Synopsis:
Don’t make a noise otherwise the bomb will go off.

Former lieutenant commander Do-yeong (Kim Rae-won) suffers from PTSD caused by the hellish submarine accident in which he lost his colleagues. Even though he is revered as a national hero, he feels guilty and tormented by his own family estrangement.

One day, Do-yeong receives a cryptic phone call from a mysterious person, threatening he’ll blow up a football stadium with improvised explosives triggered by a certain decibel. In the nick of time, Do-yeong saves innocent lives but the terrorist remains intent on inflicting further casualties, including Do-yeong’s wife and daughter. Now he must race against the clock to track the terrorist down and save his family as well as other people. Amid this impossible task, the unforeseen consequences of a secret he left buried in the deep sea resurfaces.

Title: Decibel
Genre: Action
Cast: Kim Rae-won, Lee Jong-suk, Jung Sang-hoon, Park Byung-eun, Lee Sang-hee, Cho Dal-hwan, Cha Eun-woo, Lee Min-ki

The Chivas x LISA limited-edition Chivas 18 bottle design is the perfect embodiment of LISA, a global superstar adored by millions. She concurred: “I had so much fun working with the team at Chivas on this limited edition bottle. The bottle is typical LISA – bright, bold, and unique – and I’m so excited for everyone to finally see it. It is amazing to now have my own bottle – and cocktail too!”

The design is explosive and eye-catching — bold blue and hot pink elements, topped off with LISA’s signature in a striking neon font – much like how the charismatic icon sets the stage on fire whenever she performs. The crowning glory is a detachable 18-karat gold plated logo charm that fans will want to add to their collection. The iconic Chivas Luckenbooth also received a makeover, sharing centre-stage with LISA’s trademark star logo across the bottle’s outer box.

In celebration of the partnership between Chivas and LISA, the brand has crafted a signature cocktail recipe, called Pink Spice. Inspired by LISA’s Asian heritage, this delightful cocktail blends notes of tea, citrus and spice.

[K-Movie] Suspense Thriller ‘CONFESSION’ Starring So Ji Sub and Kim Yun Jin Comes To Singapore Cinemas

The story of CONFESSION is about a man who becomes a suspect in a closed-door mystery, and the attorney who must prove him innocent. This highly anticipated film centers around So Ji-sub who plays Yoo Min-ho, the head of a promising IT company whom one day becomes the sole suspect in a murder case in which his girlfriend is the victim. When all evidence points to him as the murderer, he meets Attorney Yang Shin-ae (played by Kim Yun-jin) who has a 100% acquittal rate. The story begins when these two people sit down together to assemble the pieces of the puzzle.

The central axis on which the film CONFESSION is structured is the conversation between Yoo Min-ho who claims he is innocent, and Attorney Yang who reconstructs the details of the case based on his testimony. A sharp tension arises between Yoo, who tells of the events that led him to the scene of the crime in a hotel room, and Yang, who continues to find holes in his story.

In a situation where all the evidence points to him as the culprit, Yang, a talented lawyer with the ability to transform guilt into innocence, makes use of Yoo’s psychology to create a perfect scenario that will prove his innocence, while coaxing out the truth that he refuses to reveal. The tense psychological warfare and fierce tug-of-war between these two will be a key reason to watch this film.

With the other cast members like Nana, who plays Kim Se-hee, the woman that holds the key to the case, and Choi Kwang-il, who plays Han Young-seok, a man who will reveal another hidden crime, CONFESSION raises the tension and is set to deliver an unexpected twist that will keep the audience glued to their seats.

Genre: Crime / Thriller
Cast: So Ji-sub, Kim Yun-jin, Nana, Choi Kwang-il
Directed by: Yoon Jong-seok
Singapore Release Date: 17 November 2022
Runtime: 105 minutes
