Wednesday Kpop Update | 9MUSES Returns with 4 Members + Seohyun Solo Debut Rumors, SM Responds + Yuna Kim And Jeon Min Joo, No Longer with The Ark + Music Videos

Okay so I debated about during a full kpop post or just posting videos and then I remembered, I’ve been slacking a bit with kpop posts. I think subconsciously I’m trying to move away from doing them and just focus on other things now.

We’ll see what happens.

In the meantime, 9Muses announced that they will in fact be making a comeback but the line-up has definitely changed. They are now going to be four members.

On July 11, Star Empire Entertainment said that the unit has finished recording, and is aiming for a return early August. Star Empire said, “Member Kyungri has been confirmed as one of the four. The rest of the members will be revealed one at a time through promotions.”

9Muses was previously known as one of the larger girl groups with nine members and steadily becoming smaller to the now six member group. With only Kyungri confirmed, I’m curious to see who the other three will be and what this means for their music. Will they go in a new direction entirely?


With Tiffany and Taeyeon making their solo careers, it is only natural that fans of SNSD will likely assume that eventually all them will do so. And apparently, fans had their sights set of seeing Seohyun make a solo debut. It makes sense. Taeyeon, Tiffany and Seohyun made up the sub-unit, TaeTiSeo so why not?

SM says, because the timing isn’t now.

On July 13, a source from SM Entertainment denied that any concrete plans have been made. “Nothing has been determined with regards to Seohyun’s solo album release,” the source says.

Honestly that doesn’t mean that nothing will be done for her, but it’s not saying anything will be either. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see on this one.


The Ark has been pretty quiet lately. For a while, I was starting to think that they would stop producing anything at all. And now they’ve returned to the news but not for the reason I was hoping for.

It’s been officially announced that Yuna Kim and Jeon Min Joo have officially left The Ark. And apparently, they left two months ago!

A source from Music K Entertainment stated to OSEN, “With respect to their individual music styles, we have cancelled the contracts.”

Well… I wish them both the best. I wonder what they happen with the remaining members.
