Tuesday Kpop Update | Jessica Jung Cast in Chinese Movie + EXO Member Test Question + Fan Blames Tablo for Broken Camera

Today was just a really controversial day for some reason. I heard something about JB allegedly saying something inappropriate. It’s a rumor and some netizen was just posting nonsense online. If it was said there’s no proof that everything she said was actually said so I won’t even entertain it. Moving along, Akdong Musicians posted a video asking fans to wait just a little bit longer. They’re working on some new things right now so they’re asking for patience. I’m happy to see they’re still working on music together. Can’t wait to hear the new music!

And speaking of getting to work, Jessica Jung was cast in a new Chinese movie. Currently, it’s called, “Love Package”.

“…According to Chinese media outlet SINA on October 27, Jessica was spotted filming with Hong Kong-based actor William Chan. This is Jessica’s first acting gig since her drama “Wild Romance” in 2012.

The two began filming for the movie in Beijing recently. And apparently, Jessica has been putting in some serious work to get her Chinese lines right.


Now on to this EXO test question. I heard about this some months ago! Like last year I think… is this a new test question? Who knows. But I do know, it has resurfaced. A netizen created the post talking about the question saying that they didn’t get a 100 because of this question. And I mean seriously, if you have no interest in kpop, how would you know the answer?

The question:

The question is asking to add up all the numbers in the parentheses within the following passage , “In the year of (   ), group activities conducted by large managing agencies became prevalent. From (   ) generation idols, such as HOT, SES, and Fin.K.L to current day’s EXO (     people), these groups have defined the Korean Wave and stand as the representatives of K-POP.”

And since we know the number for EXO is still subject to change, is “technically 12 but now possibly 8 or 9” an acceptable answer? (Too soon?)

And finally the story I didn’t even really want to talk about but I couldn’t help it. It was pure irony!!! So a netizen had a camera at the 22nd Family Concert which featured Epik High, EXO, BoA, Red Velvet, hyukoh. During the concert, Tablo sprayed the crowd with water. The next thing that happens is one of those things that just seems to only happen in movies. This netizen took to social media to write a scathing response to the incident.

The fan, ‘A‘, wrote, “****, if you were going to spray water, you should’ve said it beforehand. I was just calmly watching the show when my head got wet with water; I was completely taken by surprise and turned on my camera, but it wouldn’t turn on, you crazy b*tch. Ugh, I’m so pissed, I don’t even know what curses to say.  ****, Tablo, take responsibility for my camera.  You sprayed the water so refreshingly that the sensor’s gone out – so ****** pissed off.”

The story gets better… well at least for Tablo it does. Why? Because turns out, cameras weren’t even allowed at the event! And other netizens let this one fan know, they were completely wrong. Of course a retraction post followed with the fan apologizing and taking responsibility for their actions and understanding that had they been following directions the camera never would’ve been destroyed.

Welp! The moral of this story, always follow directions ladies and gents.
