Thursday Kpop Update | Heo Youngji Speaks On KARA Disbandment + Red Velvet’s Yeri Angers Netz with Golden Disk Actions + iKON Counseling Session for Fans

My days are starting to get crossed. I couldn’t remember if today was Wednesday or Thursday. (Yikes!)

However… the show goes on. Speaking of shows, I hope you weren’t planning on visiting the set of Reply 1988. Originally it was floating around that the show was going to be left standing as a tourist attraction, but apparently, that’s not gonna happen. It will be torn down. Hwang Jung Eum turned down the role she was rumored to take for the new upcoming drama Monster stating simply she was “only in talks” for the drama, nothing was ever official.

f(x)’s Luna on the other hand was spotted in her new role for the movie “Lightning Man’s Secret”. She’s cast in the leading role as Han Na.

Fans of KARA were heartbroken to hear the official news of the disbandment. Although many knew this was probably coming eventually with how everything planned out with their agency and their contracts ending, nobody really wanted it to happen. And while the veteran members have gone their separate ways, many wanted to know the future of the newest member Heo Youngji.

And now, Heo Youngji herself has released a statement to the fans.

“I miss you. Thank you. Always smile ❤ (It is because I have no lip gloss on). Fans who are crazy for me. Endorphin Youngji on her way. It is freezing outside. Don’t catch a cold. Awaiting to shoot program ‘Einstein.’ Somewhere in Hongdae.”

It should also be noted that Heo Youngji will remain the DSP Media and that we will probably be seeing some of her future projects soon. Maybe as a solo artist?

You may have noticed posts about Red Velvet’s Yeri lately. She somehow managed to upset a lot of netizens are the 30th Golden Disk Awards. How?

“…Originally posted on Pann, netizens discuss whether Red Velvet member Yeri’s actions were rude or not.Titled “What Yeri Did Tonight,” here is the direct translation of the post and netizen discussion below…”

‘You know how Red velvet won bonsang for digital single right? They won the award. Irene grabbed the trophy first but than Yeri also put her hand on it. Yeri doesn’t let go of the trophy. During Irene’s speech, she just takes the trophy to her arms. Finally, Yeri ends up having the trophy to her own.’

So I saw the comments from Pann and basically, a lot of them called Yeri “rude” and “greedy”. Apparently, this isn’t her first time doing this. But then I went to YouTube and what did I see? Absolutely nothing about what she did.

Honestly, it’s happened. It happens a lot. She’s close with the other members of Red Velvet. Obviously she does it because nobody really cares.


Moving along…

iKON’s Jinhwan and Ju-ne decided to hold a counseling session for their fans on the V-App. They answered questions and gave advice to fans on just about every topic that came to their minds.

“…they asked their fans and viewers to ask them any questions they have or freely talk about their problems and worries… During the show, Ju-ne was asked about his ideal type of girlfriend. “Last time, I told my fans that I like sexy ladies,” Ju-ne replied. He added, “But to be honest, I‘m not exactly sure, because I haven’t dated a lot of people yet.”

They answered a few more questions and then thanked the fans before ending their broadcast.

I was looking for the video but apparently it’s not on YouTube… yet. Sorry.
