I haven’t done one of these posts in a while and since it is a Wednesday post, I’m gonna use this opportunity to take a break from kpop and share some new music instead. Although, I think I just modified an old series and created something new, “New Music Wednesday”. Maybe this should be an “every third Wednesday post”? Hmmm…
I’ve been suffering from “too much kpop news/gossip” and it’s been a bit of a downer. I just want to go back to where I started and that’s language, arts, make-up and the music. I’ll return to kpop next week. But in the meantime, if you’re suffering from withdrawals, check out twentythirdstation.tumblr.com!
I found this story on allkpop.com and was a bit taken aback at first because I was a bit confused by what was going on. The only way to really get the full effect of this story is to listen to the audio. You need to hear the tone of the conversation in order to understand the context of what’s being said. The comment is made at the 1:04 mark. (s/n: It’s only in Korean so if you’re learning Korean this is good practice for you. There aren’t any subs. Sorry.)
This is what happened.
At the 1:04 mark in the video below, you can hear Ryu Soo Jung interrupt Jonghyun to add, “I’m from SM, too,” possibly to merely state to Jonghyun she likewise knew about the practice rooms. He responds, “Yes, yes, I know. I know that.”
Jung Joon Young asks, “Lovelyz is in SM?” She clarifies, “Ah, from C&C,” to make sure there is no confusion.

For those of you who don’t know, Woolim Entertainment recently merged with SM C&C. And Ryu Soo Jung did clarify that Lovelyz was under C&C. But of course there’s a fight between the netizens on whether or not it’s ok for her to say something like this. It seems as if one half thinks it’s arrogance on her part to say it while the other side doesn’t really care that she said it since she clarified what she meant.
Can’t we all just get along?
