Weekend Kpop Update | I.O.I Yoojung Parody of “Very Good”, Zico Responds + “Goblin” Delay, Creators Statement + Gary and Gil Ready to Split?

So, usually the netisphere is buzzing with different things that I couldn’t begin to predict happening, but it’s been unusually quiet. Or maybe, I just haven’t been paying attention. Either way, it’s been a lot of good news!

Suga has returned to BTS following an injury. He was noticeably absent from some promotions and the end of the year performance but have no fear, he has returned and is ready for their comeback in the future!

I.O.I’s Yoojung is also having a good and interesting week! Her parody of Zico’s “Very Good” was extremely well received by the fans but also by Zico himself. After the show aired, he responded to it saying simply,

I was watching and I was surprised to see my own stage parody. Yoojung copied me better than myself. She managed to be cute at the same time, so I enjoyed watching it.”

If you’re a fan of the show “Goblin”, you may have been wondering what the hold up was! There was this amazing moment and a cliffhanger and everyone was waiting to see what was going to happen next, with three episodes left annnnnnnnnnnnnnddd… the next episode cancelled and replaced by a special episode, “All Days Were Good”.

So what happened????

The producers say… they wanted the graphics to look right. While debunking all the popular rumors and wide-spread speculations, they gave a really valid reason.

“..While is it true we had a hectic filming schedule; when we reached the middle episodes, we didn’t have any problems filming the rest… The delay is partly due to our PD’s ambitious goals. The last 3 episodes are going to be full of bright colors, as they will be focusing on a lot of the magical and fantastical aspects of the storyline. Thus, we are planning on using a lot of computer graphics, which requires a little more time. We don’t want the computer graphics to look tacky, so we’re focusing entirely on improving the visuals so that it can live up to the name of being a fantasy drama.”

Honestly, I think that’s a better way to end a show. I’d much rather it be a late airing and look good then to be thrown together and trash. Sooooooooooooo many good dramas have gone that route and it’s always super disappointing and upsetting.

Quality over quantity any day!


It’s being reported that the Leessang company is about to split up due to Gary and Gil wanting to pursue solo career paths. They’ve already started their own solo labels, Magic Mansion and Yangbans Nation, but is this really happening? Will Leessang break up too?

Leessang Company, owned by Leessang’s Gil and Gary, are currently in the process of closing their business, and have already enlisted their building up for sale. January 13, according to an insider in the industry, Leessang Company’s employees have not been working since last year, and the company’s building is currently on the market priced at 9 billion won since January 11.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens but honestly, this is super upsetting.

Monday Kpop Update | Tablo Interview, Talks HIGHGRND Amidst Release of Lee Hi New Album + Monday Couple Backlash? Netz Tired of Storyline + FIESTAR “A Delicate Sense” Live Performance

This weekend wasn’t as busy as last weekend in the kpop world so I took the time to take a break from it. Today, it’s still not very busy but there were a few things that happened that over the weekend that kinda carried over into today that I got excited about.

Starting with Lee Hi. If you remember a while back, they signed with Tablo’s independent label HIGHGRND. We got to see some teasers for the official debut of the company shortly before it was announced that Lee Hi’s comeback would be soon. Well, with the comeback news, many fans were wondering, what’s really the difference between HIGHGRND and YG Entertainment? Aren’t they the same? Tablo, owner of HIGHGRND says, “No, they’re different.” (no Lee Hi pun intended.)

In a recent interview with Sports Illgan, Tablo said:

“President Yang gave me this authority…. he must think by letting me take the lead independently that perhaps I will come up with totally different products from YG. He has no knowledge of all out decisions. He is also unaware of our ongoing plan. Legally, we are two different companies.”

I actually thought that HIGHGRND was a sub-unit of YG, I had no idea they were separate companies. Well, that’s good to know. And with Lee Hi’s newest single, I’m sure it clears up a lot about any agency speculation that may arise in the future.

If you haven’t heard it yet, check out their newest single below!


Everyone’s favorite Monday Couple is not so much a favorite anymore. At least, not for everyone. Apparently the idea of Song Ji Hyo and Gary being this adorable couple on Running Man has outstayed its welcome to some netz. It began about seven years ago. In the beginning, with Gary show his “love and affection” for Song Ji Hyo, everyone thought it was cute. But now, after the latest episode, netz are saying, “Give it rest!”

[ + 763, – 121] Honestly this is getting old. Their love line has been over used. How long are they going to hold on to this

[+ 579, – 88] I’m sorry but cut the BS. We know it’s all for show and just business

Well, with Song Ji Hyo’s latest ventures with the Chinese version of “We Got Married” and with other things she’ll be branching out and doing, I’m sure this is going to die down soon.


FIESTAR’s latest song “Mirror” has had a lot of people talking and excited about the new album. If you want to hear samples from the album, check out their MelOn live performance below!

Weekend Kpop Update | Actress Ji Ha Yoon Taking Action Against Stalker + Unauthorized SNSD Calendar Photoshops Pictures + WINNER “EXIT”Individual Teaser Taehyun + CNBLUE and CROSS GENE Comeback

This weekend was a really exciting one! For starters, congrats Gary for winning #1 on SBS’ Inkigayo. From what I understand, he never did promote for his new single so that’s pretty cool.

I would post a video… but he didn’t perform. So if you haven’t heard the song or seen the video, check it out below!

JYP also received an award. He was awarded “Most Influential Producer” at 2015 Weibo Awards!


 

And then there was the news about Actress Park Jin Young. She’s been stalked for a while relentlessly by a man who has posted personal information about her and even showed up to her home. Now, she’s taking action.

Young posted the stalker’s photos, name, age, and captures of the messages sent to her and she uploaded them on her instagram account.

It’s become too much that I’m going to report him. I’ve tried warning and ignoring him countless times and he said he will stop; but his stalking only got worse. I’ll show him that I’m not just using words as a warning. I upload this so that he will see it.”

Fans have been wondering just how bad was his torment to make her go to this extreme and even going so far to criticize her for taking such action due to her popularity, or lack thereof according to them.

Personally, I’m glad she’s taking action but I do also hope she’s able to get some type of help from the police as far as protection for herself. Nobody how popular (or not popular) you are, stalking is very scary and very dangerous. It doesn’t just affect the person being stalked, it affects their families as well.

Good for her!


 

I found this story on koreaboo and thought it was absolutely insane! Apparently, an unauthorized calendar for Girls’ Generation was on sale and they manufacturers decided to use old pictures of SNSD, but they photoshopped Jessica out of them whenever they could… in very obvious ways.

And according to the tweet, that wasn’t the only noticeable change they made. Some months were left on touched but others were just obvious that they were trying to compensate for Jessica no longer being in the group.

Personally, don’t they think it would’ve made more sense to just leave it alone until they could get current pictures?


 

And then the comeback news! These are just a few of the exciting teasers released over the weekend!
