Seoul, Feb. 5 - Big Hit Entertainment, label behind K - Pop megastars BTS, announces massive business growth in 2019 and plans for upcoming tours and new bands at a Corporate Briefing in SEOUL. Revenues will nearly double for the company in 2019 to 587. 9 billion South Korean won, Big Hit CEO and founder Bang Si - Hyuk said Tuesday at a private event, with annual operating profits reaching 97. 5 billion won. A briefing had been scheduled to include fans and media but was held in private instead due to fears over the coronavirus outbreak. A video of a corporate presentation was released on Wednesday. In 2019, Big Hit will grow rapidly and drive numerous changes, Bang say, as it works to build foundations of multi - label, multi - business company. Companies acquire music label Source Music, game company Superb and establish a joint venture Belift with CJ ENM in 2019. Big Hit also expands its BTS concert experiences with live streaming, cinema viewing and other package content. New platforms allow over 5. 5 million fans to take part in BTS Love Yourself and Speak Yourself world tours, beyond 2. 06 million who attended in person, company announce. Bang also described the enormous economic boost that BTS concerts had on SEOUL in 2019. The band's three - day concert in SEOUL brought in 187 000 additional foreign visitors and had an economic impact of nearly 1 trillion won, he say, citing academic experts. Our vision was to turn cities hosting BTS performances into festivals like the Olympics, Bang say. And we are witnessing this vision turn into reality. Big Hit Vice President Shin Young - jae announced plans for first world tour for label TXT. The boy band, which debuts in 2019, will hold its first live show with fans in March before embarking on tour and will release a new album in the first half of year. Shin also said that Big Hit is working on a new boy band and aiming for them to debut in 2022. Source Music President So Sung - jin said that performers recruited from Plus Global Audition, held last year, would make their debut as a girl group in 2021. The label, which was acquired by Big Hit Entertainment last year, features K - Pop stars GFriend, who released their new album Labyrinth on Monday. And new multinational boy band under Belift joint venture will make its debut within year, said Yoon Hyuk - choi, Vice President of label. His goal is to become a label that takes K - Pop into the mainstream, he say, with new projects seeking to create idols for the global market. Other announcements on Tuesday include boy band Seventeen, which is managed by label Pleidis Entertainment, becoming the first outside act to join WeVerse, fan and artist community app launched by Big Hit.

Plot

Like John Woo's English language debut Hard Target, this first Hollywood outing for his disciple Wong plays like poor translation, mixing action, farce and childish smut into a half - baked crime comedy. Melvyn is swell guy except that he kills people for a living, being busy Hit Man in employ of debonair gangster. Melvyn is part of a team that includes psychotic, greedy, very annoying Cisco, Crunch and Vince. Melvyn is so desperate to be like, he lets everyone - except his 100 or so victims - walk over him. His tormentors include two - times mistress Chantel, who is a screeching gold - digger, and his crass, spendthrift fiancee Pam Shulman, who gives all Melvyn's savings to her ghastly parents. Entirely foreseeable complications ensue when all aforementioned converge on Melvyn just when he stashes nubile teen kidnap victim on premises. Ethnic jokes, abortive seductions, cookery fiascos and guns feature heavily. And unbeknown to Melvyn, abductee is his ruthless bos goddaughter, key to the backstabbing Cisco scheme for rubbing Melvyn out. Conceivably, someone, somewhere may find this idiotic bad taste binge amusing, yet most will find sooner any - or preferably all - of these characters get dispatch better. Eliminate loud but lame comedy and what is left is 15 minutes of stylish action pieces, terrific stunt effects, slow - motion devastation and the ever popular escape by centimetres from blast fireball.
