"As some of you may know, my life was hell the last few years. I thought about breaking up the group at one point, because I didn’t want the hate against me to spread to my members. We’re back together because our fans miss us, and we owe it to them to kick ass again. Or at least die trying."
— Tablo (121029 MTV K Interview)
Epik High Promises to Go on a Nation-Wide Club Tour + Possible overseas tour!
The hip hop group took to the stage, on October 24, at Seoul’s Club Harlem for its Epik High 99 Live performance.
Amid a hot and passionate response from the fans, the Epik High members couldn’t help but feel a rush as well as they thanked the fans for reminding them of their early years when they used to perform at various club venues before giving them a 90 degrees bow.
Tablo then told the crowd, “I want to make a declaration. Epik High will go on a club tour. We will go to clubs around the nation and directly go and find our fans.”
He then added, “Truthfully, I haven’t actually spoken about this with CEO Yang Hyun Suk yet. I’ll confirm after this declaration.”
Tablo then shouted once more, “Epik High is going on a nation-wide club tour!”
Member Mithra added, “Not just nation-wide but if anyone would have us we’ll go abroad too.”
In addition to the group’s title tracks, Up and Don’t Hate Me, the group performed a range of songs from its new seventh album as well as some of Epik High’s old hits such as Love Love Love and Fly.

Tablo - 120815 Twitter Update!
"People believe those fairytales about falling in love at first sight at the bus, subway, or at the streets. But it doesn’t make sense how they’d laugh at the ones who fell in love at first sight through TV screens. Loving a celebrity IS a type of love. Love is fair to everyone."
"Even if all the tears in this world gathered in the slender rims of my eyes, I wish I could shed your tears on your behalf."

thank you for breathing, happy birthday
Been a rough last few years for you hasn’t it? I’ve seen you happily performing one day, goofing off with the rest of Epik High and then later on saw you withdraw from the public completely, trying to fight something that has badly affected not just you but the people you love.
I was over the moon when I heard that you joined YGE earlier this year. I practically threw a party when I learned how good your new album was. And most of all, I am extremely glad that the liars who all tried to put you down are about to go to jail. I won’t waste space talking about them - Tablo, you’ve been through a lot and we are just thankful you’re back.
I know you lost your dad earlier this year too, but please remember that you still have your ‘airbags’ - all of us, who watched you perform, laughed at your antics, wished you the best during your wedding, supported you at your lowest, and best of all, welcomed you back to the limelight this year.
Happy birthday again ‘Blo. Emphasis on the happy. Stay that way bb. :)
Two members of Tanjinyo sentenced to prison!
Two members of Tajinyo, a group that’s been making malicious claims about the validity of Tablo‘s degree from Stanford University, have been sentenced to prison.
‘Won’ and ‘Lee’ were sentenced to 10-month prison terms for defaming the rapper at Seoul Central District Court on July 6, 10AM KST. Six other members of the group were given 8-10 months in prison, suspended for 2 years.
Judge Kwak Yoon Kyung stated, “The public is free to express their interest in celebrities, and celebrities must handle it to some extent. However, the two went over the threshold of simple comments into continuous, malicious slander against Tablo and his family.”
He went on, “Though Tablo had submitted sufficient evidence, they didn’t believe it and claimed it was the work of hackers and middlemen; the malicious comments did not stop. The two persons [are guilty] of defamation of character against Tablo and his family, and they even insisted that the evidence was fabricated. Because they did not apologize or reflect [on their actions], they were sentenced.”

What I texted my manager hyung today:
“Strive until the end”
His reply that arrived a while later:
“Strive without an end”
Epik High along with se7en and gummy still need a formal announcement on their comeback it is not 100% yet, however it is mentioned in the YG stockmarket report so it means it’s under consideration. Let us hope for the best and support them before,during and after their comeback!
EPIK HIGH’s comeback is written on YG’s STOCK MARKET REPORT for the second half of 2012!!!
thanks for ainsxstar for tip~
