A collection of recent news items:
Upcoming SBS drama Protect The Boss (보스를 지켜라) will include a scene where Super Kidd bursts into 돈 때문이야~ – a parody of 간 때문이야 from the 우루사 ad featuring soccer player Cha Du-Ri: Superkidd and the Brave Girls to cameo in ‘Protect the Boss’. As a side note (finally an excuse to post it!), you can hear eAeon of Mot sing 간때문이야, or Cry Me a Liver, on SoundCloud.
