Weekend Kpop Update | Jessica Jung Signs to Tyler Kwon’s Coridel Entertainment + ARMY vs iKONICS and Lightsticks at iKON Concert + More “Cheese in the Trap” Drama

So I apologize for the late post. I really need to get on it!

First let’s start with TWICE’s Dahyun and Tzuyu who will be special MCs for SBS’s Baek Jong Won’s Three Kings. Pretty exciting considering this is coming just off the heels of Tzuyu’s nationality controversy.

VIXX’s Ravi is new BFF’s with BTS’ J-Hope and Produce 101’s Kim So Hye managing agency is suing netizens for malicious comments.

All is right in world of kpop. With a few ripples that happened over the weekend…


 

Jessica shocked fans by revealing that she has officially signed on with Tyler Kwon’s Coridel Entertainment. This is move is causing a lot of fans to wonder if she’s preparing for a new kpop comeback as a solo artist. Though it was never something off the table, Jessica said recently back in the December issue of High Cut magazine that singing wasn’t on the backburner. It was still something she’s passionate about.

In Jung’s interview with the magazine, the singer made it clear where she stands in her own music endeavors. “I never said I was leaving the Entertainment industry,” Jung said.

This announcement also came around the time she posted a picture on instagram of herself in the studio. It was later taken down but fans got the message.

Well I certainly can’t wait to hear her new music.


And of course, what’s kpop without some type of “fan war”. This honestly isn’t a huge issue or even war material. This is between ARMY and iKONICS over a lightstick situation at a iKON concert. Apparently, there were some fans there with BTS lightsticks that upset a lot of iKONICS who promptly took pictures and posted them online.

When it hit the internet, iKONICS were heated and jumping all over this. But a few ARMY’s and iKONIC’s issued statements saying in so many words, “this is about to get out of hand so before it does, I’m sorry.”  and “No need for apologies.” Not exactly what was said but…

“I’m an ARMY. I think there will be controversy so I apologize in advance. I think this is ARMYs’ fault..I’m sincerely sorry. I really have nothing to say…” 

“I’m an iKONIC and I don’t think it’s right to demand an apology from innocent ARMY’s just because of those three…”

You can see pictures here of the “outrageous stunt” (sarcasm intended)


And finally, Cheese in the Trap has even more drama to add to the drama!

This show has received great reviews for the writing and production and storyline… it’s just the offscreen drama that’s starting to become a turn-off for some viewers. This time, it’s the producers apologizing to the webtoon author for leaving her out of the loop on the final episode!

Fans noticed this after Soonkki released a post on her blog acknowledging the slip up upsetting the fans and being a bit of a buzzkill for the final show. The director has apologized personally to her and now staff of the show issued the following apology.

“First, we woud like to apologize the fans of the show and webtoon for worrying them with such negative news. Regret fills our hearts for making some of the actors feel uncomfortable with the situation as well… Regarding the post the original writer Soonkki recently uploaded on her blog, we are sorry that we were not more considerate of her. We were so focused on producing the drama that we forgot to share the script with her midway into the show. We are especially sorry for sharing the script for the ending only right before we started filming. Director Lee Yoon Jung has already personally apologized to Soonkki, and she has accepted it,”

Hopefully in the future, if there’s a second season, they’ll remember to include Soonkki in the process all the way to the end.
