MC Mong is aiming for a comeback to the Korean hip-hop scene as he films his new music video!
A representative initially stated that the rapper will be filming his new music video on August 25th at the club Rolling Hall in Hongdae. The first 200 people lined up may go in to participate in the filming. MC Mong’s agency Dream T Entertainment, also confirmed the news saying, “Yes, it’s true we have a music video filming scheduled for tomorrow. However, an official title for the song has not yet been decided on.”
Its been nearly seven years since MC Mong evaded his military service. Since then, he has held a comeback concert last September but otherwise kept his public appearances minimal.
Military service is like a right of passage for Korean men, though it is not uncommon for people to find ways to get out of it, celebrities are normally held to a high standard. MC Mong’s albums have been major chart players even though groups have rallied together to keep him off radar. Even artists who spoke well of him were called into question by netizens. As news of his return are being widely report, some remain sceptical about his success.
Meanwhile, this will be his first media appearance since releasing a collaboration with artist Jinsil eight months ago with the track, “Aftereffect”.
