By Mike Bird WSJ Tues., March 12, 2019 K-pop stocks have struck a bum note this week. Investors should still keep them in mind, as the country’s cultural output builds global popularity. Companies involved in producing and selling Korean pop music have plunged since Lee Seung-hyun, a major star and member of the group Big Bang, was charged with involvement in a prostitution ring over the weekend. Two stocks—SM Entertainment and YG Entertainment—are down by more than 13% this week. For investors brave enough to look past this brewing scandal, the sudden slump could offer a good time to get into these K-pop powerhouses.

Chris Solari Detroit Free Press Published 7:00 AM EST Jan 18, 2019 LINCOLN, Neb. — Most nights, Cassius Winston plays basketball like a jazz artist in a hip-hop world. Then there are those rare moments when Michigan State’s point guard transcends the cadence of the game and bursts into his own genre. His avant-garde rhythms with the ball reach uncharted territory. He becomes a frenetic blend of John Coltrane’s staccato daggers with his shot, MC5’s feverish speed in pushing the pace in transition and Kendrick Lamar’s lyrical fury in attacking the basket off the bounce. That is when Winston morphs into something different, something beyond what people expect, something that few defenses can stop.
