Tiger JK didn′t forget to drop by the semifinal match of Mnet′s Superstar K4 to cheer for his wife, Yoon Mirae, and he also brought cute Jordan along.
At the Superstar K4 live broadcast held on November 16, Tiger JK appeared to cheer for his wife and Superstar K4 judge Yoon Mirae. He sat with Jordan in a seat near the judge panels, and even when she wasn′t talking, continued to stare at his wife with loving eyes.
When the two appeared on screen while Yoon Mirae delivered her comments, the audience cheered for the happy family. Jordan shouted out in joy when he came on screen, and Tiger JK flashed a ′v′ at the camera while he also tried to get Jordan to look at the camera too.
Jordan couldn′t hide his love for his mom either, as at one point he charged toward the judge panels to get a hug. While he was being taken outside by Tiger JK, Jordan suddenly ran toward the stage, taking his dad by surprise. The staff barely managed to catch up with him and keep him from suddenly appearing onstage.
As soon as the cameras turned off and the screens switched to pre-recorded videos, Jordan was finally able to join his mom onstage.
In the meantime, during the day′s competition Roy Kim and DickPunks went on to become the top 2 finalists.

Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae Do Fashion Collaboration on T-Shirt; Donating Portion of Proceeds to Charity to Prevent School Violence
Hip-hop couple Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae did a fashion collaboration with visual artist Lumpens with the result being “The Wanderers” T-shirt.
On August 20, according to a representative, while working at “Fashion Icon Collabo” on the concept of “super hero,” the three artists decided they wanted to make a team like the movie “Avengers” and, on this basis, “The Wanderers” was born. The meaning of being a “wanderer’ is an unconventional, unhurriedly wandering person, a hero who helps others, but a hero who doesn’t seem like a hero.
In particular, Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae volunteered to donate a portion of their proceeds from the “Fashion Icon Collabo” through Naver’s Happy Bean Happy Energy program to organizations that prevent school violence, giving a deeper meaning to “The Wanderers” T-shirt.
From August 30 to September 9, “The Wanderers” T-shirt will be exclusively sold on the Naver shopping website.

In a meeting between hip-hop scene leaders, rappers and couple Tiger JK and Yoon Mi-rae, both met with rapper and producer Dr. Dre recently for a friendly chat, according to a source.
An official with Tiger JK told Star News that the American hip-hop mogul, who was visiting Korea for Eminem‘s concert as well as for business with his headphone brand, personally invited the couple because he wanted to meet with “musicians that represented Korean hip-hop”. The meeting took place on August 18, at a club in Seoul’s Gangnam district.
The topic of conversation revolved around music, with both parties praising each other’s work and exchanging episodes, and family; with Dr. Dre introducing Tiger JK to his son. The parties are said to have promised to collaborate in the future; renowned producer The Alchemist, who also happens to be Tiger JK’s childhood friend and in Korea as Eminem’s tour DJ, was also at the meeting and wished to work with Yoon Mi-rae in particular.
The official passed along Dr. Dre’s words that he hadn’t known much about Korea before but came to love the country’s energy; the source added that Tiger JK had a very meaningful time thanks to the invitation.
A Drunken Tiger/Tasha collaboration with Dre is certainly an exciting idea for the future, but all parties appear extremely busy with other things for the time being. The Korean couple, after collaborating with Far East Movement earlier this year, is currently recording Yoon’s much-anticipated comeback album for a late-2012 release. Meanwhile, Dr. Dre has said that he will be taking a break from music to focus on his Beats By Dre line and his family (with studio album Detox still on indefinite hold).
